Ultimate soldier. Ultimate mission. But will the SAS be able to find an IRA sniper before he finds them? South Armagh, 1989: cheering mobs stand over the body of a British soldier. He is the ninth to have been killed by the so-called Border Fox, an IRA sniper whose activities have helped make this area of the United Kingdom the most feared killing ground in Western Europe. The British government is determined to break the tightly knit South Armagh Brigade of the IRA before more lives are lost. The SAS men of Ulster Troop are the best in the world at surveillance, unsurpassed in counterinsurgency techniques. And now, once again, they are going to have to prove it. Their hunt for the Border Fox and the terrorists of South Armagh will be a murderous, little-publicized war in which every encounter, whether in or out of uniform, is potentially a battle to the death. 1.

´´Here lies that famous Raphael by whom Nature feared to be conquered while he lived, and when he was dying, feared herself to die.´´ (Inscription on Raphael´s sarcophagus) Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino, known across the world simply by the name Raphael, stands as one of the main pillars of the High Renaissance, an iconic example of the balance between spirituality and humanistic inquiry that characterized the time period. Although he lived just 37 years, his career produced an amazingly rich output, and he completed more works than many artists do over careers spanning twice the length. At the same time, Raphael´s art combined central tropes associated with the Renaissance while remaining remarkably original. As such, his career is worth exploring not only in its own right but also for the ways in which he typified contemporary artistic techniques, including a return to antiquity and the balance between mathematical accuracy, rational thought, and religious devotion. While Raphael´s own themes did not vary greatly throughout his career, he led a relatively nomadic existence, and his life reflects the trends associated with late 15th-century and early 16th-century Italy. Born in Umbria and raised in the Umbria court, Raphael was exposed to a wealth of artistic influences and high culture, characteristic of the early Renaissance shift toward humanism and artistic appreciation. Although Raphael´s talent was generational, his life did not involve the extreme poverty and destitution that often characterized the lives of other famous artists. 1. Language: English.

From esteemed Israeli journalist and historian Tom Segev, the first fully documented biography of Simon Wiesenthal, revealing the fascinating truth behind this simultaneously admired, despised, and feared hunter of Nazis. Simon Wiesenthal was the legendary ´´Nazi hunter” played by Ben Kingsley and Laurence Olivier on film, a Holocaust survivor who dedicated his life to the punishment of Nazi criminals. A hero in the eyes of many, he was also attacked for his unrelenting pursuit of the past, when others preferred to forget. For this definitive biography, Tom Segev has obtained access to Wiesenthal’s hundreds of thousands of private papers and to 16 archives, including records of the U.S., Israeli, Polish, and East German secret services. Segev is able to reveal the intriguing secrets of Wiesenthal’s life, including his stunning role in the capture of Adolf Eichmann, his controversial investigative techniques, his unlikely friendships with Kurt Waldheim and Albert Speer, and the nature of his rivalry with Elie Wiesel. Tom Segev has written a brilliant character study of the ´´hunter” who was driven by his own memories to ensure that the destruction of European Jewry never be forgotten. 1. Language: English.

Have you ever struggled to stand up and speak in front of an audience? You may be able to relate in some part to my story, being asked to speak to a group of people and feeling under-prepared. You may be able to relate to the crippling fear and the irrational thoughts that take over your normally rational mind. If this is such a feared topic, why would anyone want to improve or even master this skill? It is human nature to move towards experiences that give us pleasure and move away from experiences that cause us pain, so listening to an audiobook on public speaking appears to be counter intuitive to say the least. However, the fact remains that public speaking is an important skill and it is fundamental in many careers, particularly in management and leadership roles, regardless of the industry or even the country you operate in.

This book is designed to help you with four things: Provide the tools to become the best version of you during your speech or presentation Show you how to craft a clear and concise speech Demonstrate techniques to allow you to deliver a compelling speech with style Give you a proven way to reduce your levels of anxiety of public speaking 1.
