This book is about coping with the crazy people at work. It is a serious book with funny stories. The book has 10 rules of survival. Rule # 1 Crazy People Make You Crazy is the foundation of all of them. The rules allow you to identify and then avoid crazy people and crazy situations. This is not a get rich or get sex or self-help book. This is about getting your life focused on what is truly important. Life is too short and too precious to allow ourselves to be sidetracked by impossible people and the impossible problems they create. That life is short and precious is a truism, but it is a truism that resonates deeply in the hearts of those of us who have dipped our toes into the waters of middle age or beyond. Perhaps the realization comes when we hit a 40th birthday or a 15th wedding anniversary. All of a sudden, life is flying by. What we want at that point more than anything is to pay attention to what matters. We want time for precious things, whatever unique combination of family and friends and hobbies and faith and community brings each of you your unique sense of joy and fulfillment. That is what makes this a genuinely different kind of self-help book. The book is friendly, conversational and entertaining. It is written is to be a quick satisfying listen. That airplane ride to Chicago becomes an entertaining learning experience. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Taverna.

A fascinating exploration of how humans and machines fail - leading to air disasters from Amelia Earhart to MH370 - and how the lessons learned from these accidents have made flying safer. In The Crash Detectives, veteran aviation journalist and air safety investigator Christine Negroni takes us inside crash investigations from the early days of the jet age to the present, including the search for answers about what happened to the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. As Negroni dissects what happened and why, she explores their common themes and, most important, what has been learned from them to make planes safer. Indeed, as Negroni shows, virtually every aspect of modern pilot training, airline operation, and airplane design has been shaped by lessons learned from disaster. Along the way she also details some miraculous saves, when quick-thinking pilots averted catastrophe and kept hundreds of people alive. Tying in aviation science, performance psychology, and extensive interviews with pilots, engineers, human factors specialists, crash survivors, and others involved in accidents all over the world, The Crash Detectives is an alternately terrifying and inspiring book that might just cure your fear of flying and will definitely make you a more informed passenger. 1.

On April 6, 1994, an airplane carrying the president of Rwanda Juvenal Habyarimana and Burundian president Cyprien Ntaryamira, who were both returning from Dares Salam, Tanzania, from a one-day regional summit of heads of state, was shot down on its descent into Kigali, Rwanda, by unknown assailants. Everyone aboard including the two president were killed. Shortly after this, nature woke history to record the quickest killing spree the world has ever seen. In fact, before the rest of the world could know what the matter was, close to a million Rwandans were slaughtered and their body disposed of with reckless abandon in mass graves in a carefully organized program of genocide during the hundred-day period from April 7, to mid-July, 1994. If you think Hitler and his Nazi killers were too fast on the trigger, then you know nothing about the Rwandan genocide. When the Hutu majority ethnic group started slaughtering the Tutsi minority tribe in the East African country of Rwanda, can you believe that the Hutus were not only slaughtering their life-long Tutsi neighbors but also slaughtering their Tutsi wife and half-Tutsi children as well? I want you to understand that the majority of Hutus who took part in this infamous genocide didn’t partake in it because they were witches or wizards or because they enjoy to slaughter people. Remember, no father can stand another man hitting his children, far less, to slaughter them. Most of these Hutu men and women were once decent people who lived peacefully with their life-long Tutsi neighbors. Many of them were considered kind hearted. Many of them were considered kind hearted by their Tutsi friends, coworkers, and neighbors before the war. In short, it was said that there were revered pastors, renowned doctors, and priests who took part in the infamous genocide. What then turns them to monsters overnight? I know this is the question on your mind right now, isn’t it? Well, in case you don’t know, the same thi 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pete Beretta.

Chase Baker, Renaissance man and adventurer is back. When a flirtatious, beautiful young woman by the name of Andrea Gallo claims to be a fan of his pulp novels, Chase can´t resist reciprocating in the lusty attraction. But that night, while the two enjoy a romantic evening of wine and love in his Florence apartment, he is suddenly kidnapped from his bed by two thugs who turn out not only to be working for Great Britain´s infamous MI-16, but also working side-by-side with Gallo. Duped once again, Chase wants to bid his newfound romance a quick ´´arrivederci´´ and be on his way. But when they tell him they desperately need his help to uncover a legendary cave in the Northern Italian forest before a team of Russian and Iranian hardliners do, he feels compelled to help out, regardless of their rather unsound method of capturing his attention. But what´s so special about the cave? It´s said to be the very same cave that Leonardo da Vinci discovered as a young man back in the mid-15th century, and where he not only learned the secrets behind his many inventions, including the airplane, but where he was exposed to the very meaning behind God´s divine plan for mankind. Why is the MI-16 so desperate to uncover the cave before the bad guys do? Whoever discovers it first will possess the knowledge and the power to take over the world. 1. Language: English.
