He describes the stress and sometimes mind-numbing boredom of being deployed deep in the desert of Saudi Arabia, constantly preparing for a possible Iraqi invasion. He recalls the terrifying experience of the start of the air war of Operation Desert Storm and the workman-like action during combat against Iraq´s Republican Guard forces during Operation Desert Sabre. With It or in It brings clarity and focus to their unceasing efforts to bring the conflict to a swift and decisive end. Finally, Warren describes the triumphant return of the Brave Rifles to Ft. Bliss, Texas, and the waiting arms of their families and loved ones. Warren´s fellow tankers have called With It or in It ´´honest and moving´´ (R. Bell) and ´´almost identical to the experiences I had myself´´ (W. Compton). The commanding officer of the author´s Troop during Desert Shield and Desert Storm remarks that With It or in It ´´brilliantly captures what is the rarely described gritty and demanding life of an armor crewman´´ (R. Schultheis). 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pete Beretta. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/124131/bk_acx0_124131_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
A new voice in comics is incisive, funny, and fiercely feminist.´´The mental load. It´s incessant, gnawing, exhausting, and disproportionately falls to women. You know the scene - you´re making dinner, calling the plumber/doctor/mechanic, checking homework and answering work emails - at the same time. All the while, you are being peppered with questions by your nearest and dearest ´where are my shoes?, ´do we have any cheese?...´´´ -Australian Broadcasting Corp on Emma´s comicIn her first book of comic strips, Emma reflects on social and feminist issues by means of simple line drawings, dissecting the mental load, ie all that invisible and unpaid organizing, list-making and planning women do to manage their lives, and the lives of their family members. Most of us carry some form of mental load - about our work, household responsibilities, financial obligations and personal life; but what makes up that burden and how it´s distributed within households and understood in offices is not always equal or fair. In her strips Emma deals with themes ranging from maternity leave (it is not a vacation!), domestic violence, the clitoris, the violence of the medical world on women during childbirth, and other feminist issues, and she does so in a straightforward way that is both hilarious and deadly serious. If you´re not laughing, you´re probably crying in recognition. Emma´s comics also address the everyday outrages and absurdities of immigrant rights, income equality, and police violence.Emma has over 300,000 followers on Facebook, her comics have been shared 215,000 times, and have elicited comments from 21,000 internet users. An article about her in the French magazine L´Express drew 1.8 million views - a record since the site was created. And her comic has just been picked up by The Guardian. Many women will recognize themselves in The Mental Load, which is sure to stir a wide ranging, important debate on what it really 1. Language: English.

A sticky-fingered brewer finds himself in a messy situation after the theft of a mutated water lily and a botched marriage proposal end with him defecating substantial amounts of solid gold. Thrust into the limelight, the young man draws unwanted attention from the world over as people scramble to understand the enigmatic philosopher´s stone. Add in a heroin-addicted best bud, a psychic drug trafficker, a power-lifting girlfriend, a reclusive botanist specializing in psilocybin, and a well-intentioned cop, and boom: The Philosopher´s Load. If Bukowski or Burroughs had been as influenced by bizarro fiction and Dungeons & Dragons as they were booze and dope, this would be the type of fiction they´d have written. Science fiction? Not quite. Urban fantasy? There´s no vampire/werewolf/teenage love triangle. Contemporary fantasy? You´re getting warmer. Supernatural crime thriller? Bingo. Chock full of drugs, violence, awful antiheroes, and villains who are even worse, The Philosopher´s Load is fast-paced genre fiction for listeners tired of the same old same old. 1.

Richard Mundi, a shady developer, sees the lost heroin as capital infusion for his failing business. His daughter, Gloria, literally in bed with would-be revolutionaries, thinks it´s her ticket out. ´´Mailman´´, a long-time postal clerk dying of cancer, believes finding the heroin would be perfect ending to a failed life. Add in punch-drunk P.I. Kelly, hired by Mundi to tail Gloria; Kelly’s young protégé; two brothers working as DiNoto’s enforcers; and a conflicted collections agent, and you have an Elmore Leonard-esque cast of characters running rampant - until all threads lead to an unforgettable showdown over the old Turk’s load. 1.

The first and second editions of Repacking Your Bags helped people develop their own unique visions of the good life and take practical steps at home and at work to make sense of their lives and live in an authentically meaningful way. Written as a travel guide it helped people to put together a ´´trip checklist´´ that provided the elements of the good life: work, love, place, and purpose. But Leider and Shapiro came to realize that repacking is not something we do once or twice in reaction to a sense of disillusionment or frustration in our lives. Developing one’s own vision of the good life is a matter of constant and evolving choice, as the inevitable shifts and surprises life has to offer continually unfold before us. With each step along the way, it remains necessary to reexamine what has brought us here, to continue asking ourselves if the choices that have sustained us so far are continuing to do so - or if they’re just weighing us down. This edition has been thoroughly revised to make it applicable for listeners today. The changes include: Refocused message on the new life and work realities and the survival skills required to succeed More practices and experiences for ´´lightening your load´´ Fresh new stories of ´´people just like me´´, the listener A new ´´Repacking Journal´´ Addition of Leider’s immensely popular Calling Cards exercise for discovering your gifts, passions and values, with access to a Calling Cards online profile PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1.
