When Yang joins a cell of renegade Theosophists for a seance, things start to go terribly wrong and Harry finds himself caught in a battle between occult powers, with strange enemies and stranger friends.

If you have been around a narcissist for any length of time, you become keenly aware that he is doing things behind your back. His covert tactics are meant to beat you to the punch, and he is nearly always two steps ahead of you. Even when you get the small taste of a victory in the game against a narcissist, you realize all too quickly that he has regained the upper hand in order to win the final battle. He has the last laugh, and he will do whatever it takes to get the last word in. The narcissist stops at nothing to demean, devalue, and destroy those around him. He wants to be unconditionally admired, or he alternately prefers to be feared and loathed. The worst thing that one can do to a narcissist is to ignore him, turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to his obnoxious antics. The narcissist is the spoilt child who feels that he is all-deserving of all the attention all the time. He does not care how he gets it, only that he ultimately gets it from everyone with whom he is in contact with. The narcissist has propaganda and an agenda that he is always delivering on an overt or covert basis. He desires to have all the resources, and he wants to be the boss. He must be the hero of his own story. He has a following of flying monkeys whom he has ultimately brainwashed and convinced he is deserving of their loyalties. He will brainwash and convince you into blind compliance, or he will seek to destroy you so that you cannot convince anyone else that he is not deserving of such attention. This audiobook discusses gaslighting as it pertains to the narcissist´s ´´blue pill´´ propaganda. We will discuss what red pill and blue pill propaganda is, including how narcissists attack major progress in women´s liberation. We will discuss gaslighting, as well as how the narcissist comes to leverage gaslighting against his victims in order to disorient and demean them. 1. Language: English. Narrator: D. Gaunt.

´´Everybody in boxing probably makes out well except for the fighter.´´ (Mike Tyson) A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history´s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors´ American Legends series, listeners can get caught up to speed on the lives of America´s most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. ´´Iron´´ Mike Tyson was one of the most feared opponents to ever step into a boxing ring. With unbelievable power that floored or stopped all but two of his first 28 professional opponents, Tyson began an unprecedented ascent to the top of the boxing world, becoming the youngest champion in history with a second-round TKO over Trevor Berbick, the last man to box and defeat Muhammad Ali. That victory, in November 1986, prompted one British sports reporter to write, ´´The noble and manly art of boxing can at least cease worrying about its immediate future, now it has discovered a heavyweight champion fit to stand alongside Dempsey, Tunney, Louis, Marciano, and Ali.´´ Tyson became one of the biggest names in sports during the 1980s and could literally do no wrong in the ring, compiling a 37-0 record with 33 KO/TKOs. On top of that, he was the face of the iconic Nintendo game Mike Tyson´s Punch-Out!!, a favorite among every video gamer in Generations X and Y. It was a stunning rise for a kid who grew up poor with no father in rough neighborhoods of New York City. Taunted for his now instantly recognizable high voice and lisp, Tyson was quick to fight and a petty criminal who became orphaned upon his mother´s death when he was 16. 1. Language: English.

Théoden: Now that my King´s decree has been fulfilled, I need to get my city in order. I have my boys to brand before I send them off, and a stubborn wolf, vampire, and dragon hybrid son to house train. Fun times ahead. Noel: My night started off full of passion and pleasure. So that must mean I´m really bonding with my brothers and their sons. I´m also looking forward to my training with Marco. It´s not going to be fun or easy, but I know I´ll learn so much, which is what I want. I don´t just want to be feared as a vampire, I want to be respected, too. Deacon: My arrangement with Théoden turned out to be more profitable for me than I had expected. The vampire Prince gave me my mate when he turned over the five humans I demanded. Elijah, though stubborn, will learn that we are meant to be together. He will submit to me by any means necessary. Warning: This serial contains strong adult content not meant for sensitive eyes. The novelettes in this serial will be filled with dark, twisted, raunchy and steamy scenes between powerful, sexy men that will either offend you or get ya revved up. This series will not be pulling any punches, and it won´t apologize for hurting your feelings, either. You´ll find no fluff and ruffles here. The vampires are not misunderstood, hopeless romantics looking for love. The werewolves are not cute and cuddly and the dragons aren´t the ones from your childhood. This is not a romance. There are approximately 21,600 words in this novelette. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Arthur Byrd. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/100485/bk_acx0_100485_sample.mp3.

A Federal Reserve insider pulls back the curtain on the secretive institution that controls America´s economy After correctly predicting the housing crash of 2008 and quitting her high-ranking Wall Street job, Danielle DiMartino Booth was surprised to find herself recruited as an analyst at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, one of the regional centers of our complicated and widely misunderstood Federal Reserve System. She was shocked to discover just how much tunnel vision, arrogance, liberal dogma, and abuse of power drove the core policies of the Fed. DiMartino Booth found a cabal of unelected academics who made decisions without the slightest understanding of the real world, just a slavish devotion to their theoretical models. Over the next nine years, she and her boss, Richard Fisher, tried to speak up about the dangers of Fed policies such as quantitative easing and deeply depressed interest rates. But as she puts it, ´´In a world rendered unsafe by banks that were too big to fail, we came to understand that the Fed was simply too big to fight.´´ Now DiMartino Booth explains what really happened to our economy after the fateful date of December 8, 2008, when the Federal Open Market Committee approved a grand and unprecedented experiment: lowering interest rates to zero and flooding America with easy money. As she feared, millions of individuals, small businesses, and major corporations made rational choices that didn´t line up with the Fed´s ´´wealth effect´´ models. The result: eight years and counting of a sluggish ´´recovery´´ that barely feels like a recovery at all. While easy money has kept Wall Street and the wealthy afloat and thriving, Main Street isn´t doing so well. Nearly half of men eighteen to thirty-four live with their parents, the highest level since the end of the Great Depression. Incomes are barely increasing for anyone not in the top ten percent of earners. And for those approaching or already in retirement, extremely low interest rates have caused their savings to stagnate. Millions have been left vulnerable and afraid. Perhaps worst of all, when the next financial crisis arrives, the Fed will have no tools left for managing the panic that ensues. And then what? DiMartino Booth pulls no punches in this exposé of the officials who run the Fed and the toxic culture they created. She blends her firsthand experiences with what she´s learned from dozens of high-powered market players, reams of financial data, and Fed documents such as transcripts of FOMC meetings. Whether you´ve been suspicious of the Fed for decades or barely know anything about it, as DiMartino Booth writes, ´´Every American must understand this extraordinarily powerful institution and how it affects his or her everyday life, and fight back.´´
