The Fire Starter Sessions is an apathy-kicking, integrity-infusing guide to defining success on your own terms. Danielle LaPorte’s straight-talk life-and-livelihood sermons have been read by over one million people. Bold but empathetic, in The Fire Starter Sessions she reframes popular self-help and success concepts, including: - Life balance is a myth, and the pursuit of it is causing us more stress then the craving for balance itself. - Being well-rounded is over-rated. When you focus on developing your true strengths, you enter your mastery zone. - Screw your principles (they might be holding you back). - We have ambition backwards. Getting clear on how you want to feel in your life + work is more important than setting goals. It's the most potent form of clarity that you can have, and it's what leads to true fulfillment.

Stephen King’s “gem of a story” (Chicago Tribune) about a child with extraordinary psychic powers who is on the run from the government. A #1 national bestseller. Andy McGee and Vicky Tomlinson participated in a drug experiment run by a veiled government agency known as The Shop. One year later, they marry. Two years later, their little girl, Charlie, sets her teddy bear on fire by simply staring at it. Now that Charlie is eight, she doesn’t start fires anymore. Her parents have taught her to control her pyrokinesis, the ability to set anything—toys, clothes, even people—aflame. But The Shop knows about and wants this pigtailed “ultimate weapon.” Shop agents set out to hunt down Charlie and her father in a ruthless chase that traverses the streets of New York and the backwoods of Vermont. “Terrifying and gripping” (The Miami Herald) Firestarter is chilling proof that “Stephen King is superb” (Time).

Ben Stokes is not cast in the same mould as the vast majority of English cricketers. Fiery, combative, gladiatorial - he plays the game hard and with great gusto. He is an all-rounder who bats, bowls and fields at full throttle. Some opponents feel threatened by his physical stature and aggressive brand of cricket. Stokes simply doesn't back down, smashing the next ball for six, bowling his 90 mph "chin music", or taking a breathtakingly full-stretch catch at backward point. Whether it's thrashing the fastest ever Test century at Lord's or the quickest ever Test double-hundred by an Englishman (against South Africa at Cape Town, in January) or destroying the Australian batting at Trent Bridge, Stokes plays the game he loves with his heart on his sleeve and with 100% effort and commitment. Cricket fans adore him for it. His very first book focuses on the pivotal moments in his life and career so far. These episodes are vibrant, emotional, poignant - revealing the man in three dimensions, red in tooth and claw. From being forged as a young boy in New Zealand, to moving to Cumbria at the age of 11, to playing county cricket for Durham and then onto the England team, this book provides a riveting insight into one of the most exhilarating figures in sport today.

The smartest particle physicist works with a small group of superintelligent scientists in Geneva Switzerland at the CERN Hadron supercollider on research aimed toward discovering the Higgs boson. During the operation of the Hadron supercollider which smashes protons together at nearly the speed of light the small group of scientists find themselves traveling back in time some 60,000 years to Burundi Africa. Join our scientists as they navigate the dimension shifting future. The time line is 2012 through 2040 but also forty years surrounding 57,000 BC. The location in the present is Geneva Switzerland as well as Bujumbura Burundi Africa and includes some New York City, East Hampton Connecticut, and Houston Texas.
