The Memoirs of a Prague Executioner by Josef Svátek (Dec 30, 2010) - Kindle eBook Link
A young man is about to graduate from medical school when a sudden shift of fate changes his life forever. He becomes stuck in the most detested profession for the rest of his life, and he is on his way to becoming the most well-known executioner in the history of Bohemia.
Master Jan finds himself in the center of the historical events of the time. The religious and political turmoil of Bohemia culminates in the 1621 White Mountain Battle. Czech Protestant rebels are defeated by Catholic forces, and Master Jan is to execute 27 men who are his fellow Protestants.
The Old Town Executioner gives the reader a first hand account about how justice was carried out by the medieval law. While his memoirs offer an intriguing account of the manners and values of late medieval society, his observations about human nature may come as a surprise. The law and society have changed since the 17th century, but people have changed very little.

Drinking with Dead Women Writers (Drinking with Dead Writers) by Elaine Ambrose and AK Turner (Apr 18, 2012) - Kindle eBook Link
"A rare mix of cleverness and intellect, and a total blast to read." -Alan Heathcock, award winning author of VOLT.
"Engaging and revealing, but most of all, flat out funny." -Flashlight Commentary
Essays on drinking with Dorothy Parker, Louisa May Alcott, Jane Austen, Erma Bombeck, The Bronte Sisters, Willa Cather, Emily Dickinson, George Eliot, Margaret Mead, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Margaret Mitchell, Carson McCullers, Flannery O'Connor, Sylvia Plath, Ayn Rand and Virginia Woolf.

Emily Dickinson was so paranoid that she only spoke to people from behind a door.
Carson McCullers wrote The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter at age 22. Her husband wanted them to commit suicide in the French countryside, but she refused.
Ambrose and Turner explore these and other intriguing facts about the most famous (but departed) women in literary history.

Robert Shumake has effectively beaten the odds. As a Detroit native with humble beginnings, he was celebrated as a college track star and has gone on to earn immense wealth and world-wide recognition as a successful entrepreneur and financial executive. But Shumake faced his toughest test when he took on the challenge of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest peak on the African continent, despite never having climbed before.
The experience was far more difficult than Shumake had expected—and it almost cost him his life. Although he survived a near-death medical emergency and ignored an expert’s advice to turn back as he neared the top, reaching the summit taught Shumake more about himself and life itself than he had ever anticipated.
He shares what he learned during this life-changing experience in Climbing Your Inner Mountain: 10 Steps to Reaching Any Goal. During this informational and inspirational read, find out why Robert Shumake proclaims:
• Every success begins in the mind • The secret is in the basement • Procrastination is the killer of dreams • Spiritual faith produces confidence • There are times when you must go it alone • The right guide will take you to the summit
With both a detailed recollection of an epic climb and a practical guide to conquering any life or business-related obstacle that stands in the way of personal progress, readers will learn to climb their own inner mountains and reach the peaks of their potential success.
If you feel trapped in the "J-O-B" you have now, with no way out… and you KNOW there must be more to life than going to work day after day, month after month… this book was written especially for you!
Most people feel stuck in their J-O-B (and are "Just Over Broke"). The ones who try to find a way out on their own, a way to create a better life for themselves, end up staying stuck right where they are. In Waiternomics you'll see there IS a way out. A path you can take to "Escape the Employee Trap" once and for all. So you can become your own boss (while still earning the income you do now). No matter what kind of "J-O-B" you have now… Waiter, Secretary, Medical Assistant or even an Executive… there IS a way out. A way you can set yourself up to create the life you want to live. So you can live life on YOUR terms, not someone else's.
Look, life is short. Why waste your time working at a "J-O-B" or career you dread going to every day? Don't you think it's time you were able to earn a much better living than you are now? While having more "personal freedom" to work when you want, and play when you want to play?
You too can set yourself up to make YOUR ‘escape.’ To start down the path of designing and creating the life you want to live. The ‘good life’ you may be thinking about right now. Think you're ready to take a look at how life can really be for you? A look at how I created a much better life for myself, and how you can do the same if you really want more out of life?
Then do yourself a favor and give yourself a special gift TODAY. The gift of Waiternomics. The gift of creating your Ideal Life. Living life on YOUR terms from now on. And never living on someone else's terms ever again. Here's to your better life! – Martin
About the Author Applying the skills he developed as an entrepreneur, with his vast real estate knowledge and investing experience, his knowledge of every aspect of high-level service along with being a life-long student of marketing (and learning from some of the biggest names in the business), Martin found that he was able to rapidly help other people who wanted a way out of the employee trap, but didn’t know how to escape. His methods helped people to become better organized, self-educate themselves, set ambitious goals, and get started as Part-Time Entrepreneurs while keeping the income and stability of their paycheck jobs. They discovered the same level of freedom Martin had, while making more than they had at their paycheck jobs, and working a fraction of the hours. Working as an internet marketer, speaker and consultant to other internet marketers has enabled Martin Fischer to share his unique, successful marketing strategies with his “brothers and sisters” who also want to escape the employee trap, who want more out of life, and are ready to make it happen for themselves. A skilled, self-developed entrepreneur, Martin employs a small, highly efficient staff, and meticulously outsources a great portion of the work that drives the Waiternomics engine. He has developed a personal friendship with business development legend Brian Tracy, spending a considerable amount of time with Mr. Tracy in San Diego, learning the arts of goal setting and achieving, public speaking, and marketing. Martin enjoys the good life by his own design, living in a golf course community in sunny Las Vegas. He shares the keys to living the good life and reaping the fruits of becoming a Part-Time Entrepreneur with aspiring business owners and people who want to escape the employee trap. The best advice that Martin offers to people who are stuck in their paycheck job is this first Fischerism: "Decide what you want out of your life and live life on your own terms. The best life is by design the life that you design for yourself."

Would Your Boss Punch You In The Face & Then Laugh When You Bleed?
This book has 9 easy to read chapters that take you through a journey of discovery.
Why do people hate what they do?
Why don't they do anything about it?
Would you like to find out how to move toward a more independent & interesting life? Something you can believe in and sustain.
The tools are all out there and for the most part they are Free.
If you don't like what you are doing, then for goodness sake stop. Do something that you want to do. There has never been a time like now. You have never had more opportunity to control your destiny and leverage the opportunities around you.
No one organisation has the power to control the message.
Therefore, you can grab some of the power and make the leap to a better place.
Picture a cold and wet morning, driving along your personal road to hell.
Your hell, my hell. It's all the same hell really.
I couldn't figure out how it had got so bad; but it had.
I hated the place and I didn't much care for the people that worked there. As for the people who ran the place. Words could not describe my contempt, frustration and the complete level of anger that consumed me. (And that was on a good day.)
So what did I do? Walk out? Shout? Scream?
I thought about it (constantly), but did nothing to make a change.
Like a lot of people I had a family to feed, a house to pay for and a life to live. This horrible job paid me money and I couldn't deal with all the palaver of changing a job, so I just carried on moaning. I feared failure and could not see a way out. Being stuck in a hole with a closed mind is not a great place.
In the end it did change. Did I finally get to the point of doing something about my self-induced horror show?
No, the company sold out and I moved with the sale. It took a few years to realise that error and it set in progress the series of events that led to the writing of this book
It might be work, it might be a multitude of other things for you. We are all in a different place in life. The one thing I am here to tell you is that things can change, and change for the better.
The simple fact is, life is too short to do something you hate. So stop waiting for someone else to do it for you - it will never happen. If you wait, it may happen, or more likely it bloody well won't! (Doing nothing is rarely a quick route to where you want to go!) Do yourself the biggest favour and find a way to get what you want out of life.
The good news is that there is an answer. Each and every new day that passes, it becomes a little easier to do. We live in amazing times, where things are constantly on the move. Whats more, they move very fast!
Yesterday would have been a great day to take the first step but, don't worry, today is a great day too! The tools available to you make it easier to do now than it was last week and certainly easier than last year. Critically, you have to decide to make the first move - and this book will show you how.
Rules are for people that want you to stick to their own status quo. Other people's rules are there to be broken if you can't take the steps you need to take get to where you want to be.
I have made others millions of dollars at different times throughout my working time. Now it is my turn, which consequently means it is your turn, too!
My life has transformed over four years. It started slowly and I have a long way to go. My quality of life has improved beyond recognition and a sense of well-being is just as important as money. I have had the taste of independence and there is no way I am giving it up.
A Guide to Help Children Bring Their Ideas into Reality!
Deliberately using our imagination to help co-create the life we desire is a fundamental skill-set that is underutilized by the majority of the population. While many authors are brilliantly expanding this knowledge in adults, there are very few books that sow this concept in the roots of the future – our children. Imagine That! explores the creative and fertile ground of the mind and helps children put in place a process for developing ideas from thought to reality.
Imagination is a universally appealing topic and a skill that needs to be cultivated in our children. With the help of Imagine That!, parents will have a fun way to educate their children about growing their ideas into reality. This book compares the similarity between bringing ideas to life and the process of growing seeds into plants. The concept of planting an idea seed is delivered in a simple, playful rhyme and the illustrations that accompany each verse visually reinforce the steps. Useful concepts are discussed such as clearing the mind of negative thoughts, taking action toward your end result, focusing on joy and gratitude, and learning to ignore the “bugs” that may not want you to succeed.
The back pages of the book are designed to be used as a discussion generator between parents and kids. All 9 verses of the metaphorical rhyme are expanded upon to help children understand how to apply the concepts. Here is an example how the first verse was expanded:
Imagine that an idea is a seed, Where would you plant it, What would it need
Consider focused thought to be a seed that you can grow into reality in the future.
Imagined concepts, or ideas, are literally the first forms of existence before anything becomes reality. Before this book was written, it was an idea. Before the computer was created, somebody imagined a “computing machine”. Nothing is ever created without first being an idea. A good discussion to have about this verse is how an idea is comparable to planting a real seed. Your mind is the planting ground for all idea seeds, your joyful emotions are the sunlight it needs to grow, and the actions you take to achieve your goals are equivalent to tilling the soil, pulling weeds, and watering your plant.
It’s also valuable to discuss the level of focus that is placed on an idea. It’s important to understand that just because information pops into your head does not mean you are planting an idea seed. You have to choose to focus on it. You have to maintain a desire to bring it into reality. And you have to take continual action to care for your seed as if you were planting and raising an actual plant. We can acknowledge an idea, or thought, without choosing to focus on it which will usually result in forgetting the thought after a few seconds. We can also ponder the thought, mull it around in our mind for a while and make a conscious choice to forget it, or grow it. Finally, once we wish to grow our idea, we can focus on it intently, visualizing every aspect of what it would take to bring it into reality, and begin taking action toward our desired end state.
"Delight Directed Learning" - Homeschoolers understand that a solid high school education involves more than just the standard high school courses.

These questions and more are answered in “Delight Directed Learning,” the second book in Lee Binz's brand new series, Coffee Break Books. The first book in this series, “Planning High School Courses,” describes the traditional high school courses that every homeschool student who is leaning toward college should cover. This companion volume captures the other components of a solid homeschool education, the extra, sometimes non-traditional, subjects that make your child unique!
Designed especially for parents who don’t want to spend hours and hours reading a 400-page book on homeschooling high school, this series combines Lee’s practical and friendly approach with detailed, but easy-to-digest information, perfect to read over a cup of coffee at your favorite coffee shop! Never overwhelming, always accessible and manageable, each book in the series will give parents the tools they need to tackle the tasks of homeschooling high school, one warm sip at a time.

While many authors have written books about Vietnam, very few of these authors have actually experienced the horrors of this war. Retired Lt. Colonel Frank Evans brings to the table his experiences in combat.
His memoir “Stand To…A Journey to Manhood” is an amazing book written by a heroic man who served his country with great honor.
His memoir depicts how the struggle for survival brings about closeness among men. Evans and his comrades worked for a common goal, despite the danger threatening them, to stay alive and to defeat the enemy. They became a brotherhood with single mind and purpose. This work is relevant to today’s soldiers as they face the same emotions Evans faced.
When his Vietnam tour of duty ended, Evans decided to continue his military career with the U.S. Army. Today, he is a proponent for the men and women of the armed forces. He stresses the benefits in education, experience, and travel to be gained by serving in the military. Yet Evans is also realistic about the strain military life can place upon a family. His recounting of his own experiences enlightens readers about the realities of serving one’s country.
In Evans’ own words “Stand To” is about a young man’s daily experiences in an unfamiliar jungle environment and his emotions dealing with apprehension, loneliness, joy, sadness, and growth, much like the lives of the soldiers currently in the Middle East.
An excerpt follows: The last glimmer of light crowned the distant trees and slowly faded to blackness. I sat on a sandbagged bunker drinking a cup of hot chocolate. I looked up at the stars and listened to the sounds from the jungle, unusual but somehow soothing. They reminded me of the sounds in the Florida swamps near Big Tree Park. Even the smells of the jungle were familiar, reminding me of peaceful nights camping a few miles from home. A few yards to my right, my third squad leader, Staff Sergeant Baker, was giving final instructions to two of his men before they moved out to their listening post. He spoke quietly. “All right, you guys, I want you to maintain complete silence while you’re out there. Only use your radio to send your hourly SITREPS. Use your push-to-talk switch to break squelch. Once for ‘yes’ or ‘everything’s OK.’ Squeeze the switch twice for ‘negative’ or ‘we’ve got movement.’ Got it?” “Yeah, Sarge. We know,” replied one of the men. “Well, this is Brown’s first time on LP, so I want to make sure you all got it right.” “Don’t worry ’bout me, Sarge. I got it,” said PFC Brown. “OK. Move out and be quiet moving into your position. Let me know when you’re all set. Keep your ears alert for Charlie. We know the VC are moving through this area at night.” The LPs quietly moved into their night locations using the designated paths through the protective wire defenses. Should they have to return quickly, they would use these same routes to run back to the safety of the perimeter. Upon arriving in their night positions they radioed back and maintained silence. Hourly situation reports, or SITREPS, would be relayed to the platoon CP through the prearranged radio signals. No voice communications would be sent unless enemy movement was detected. Earlier in the day the company’s 81mm mortars had registered defensive fires. Our supporting 105mm artillery battery was prepared to provide indirect fire support if necessary. These fires would help cover the quick return of the LPs.
The Screaming Eagles of the 101st Airborne have been in combat against the elusive Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army for nearly seven years. In this memoir, author John G. Roberts tells the story of the 2nd Battalion 502nd Infantry Regiment, the "Widow Makers" of the 101st Airborne Divisions' 1st Brigade. Written in the often crude language of the combat Infantryman, Roberts describes what it was like to confront the enemy during close combat in the triple-canopied jungles of the I Corps Tactical Zone, west of the Song Bo River and in the infamous A Shau Valley. As part of Operation Texas Star, the 502nd Infantry (the "O-Deuce") lost 30 men killed and over 200 wounded in a month-long battle during April and May, 1970.
JUNGLE COMBAT THRU THE EYES OF A YOUNG SHAKE-N-BAKE SERGEANT
Roberts relates the shock and grief he and others in his platoon felt when his 11-man squad lost 3 men killed and five wounded in about an hour of combat. The firefights around Hill 714, Hill 882 and the 4-month Battle of Firebase Ripcord received very little attention in the media. The press was focused on the April invasion of Cambodia and the May student shootings by the Ohio National Guard at Kent State University. The author, like many Vietnam War combat Veterans, carried the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) with him when he returned home. The author is very open about describing the 35-year battle he had with alcohol and PTSD. With help from his family and support from medical professionals at Veterans Affairs, he has worked out a truce with the demons of PTSD and now lives a quiet life in Southern California.
JOIN THE O-DEUCE DURING OPERATION TEXAS STAR
By reading Mighty Men of Valor - With Charlie Company on Hill 714 - Vietnam, 1970, you have the chance to experience life (and death) as an infantry grunt during some of the last big American-led battles of the Vietnam War as only someone who was there can describe them.
Jessica Karbowiak’s beautiful short stories and essays chronicle the narrator’s growth from a space of victimization, to observer and ultimately redemption. Its theme of learning how to live in the world covers the author’s own personal tragedies, historical accounts, surreal short stories on acceptance and self-worth and finally becoming whole—even as a damaged creature.
The collection is gorgeous, challenging, peculiar and experimental. As much about the writing as the narrative, the author bends perception by lyrically manipulating her words and their meanings into a unique reading experience. These Things I Know is equal parts art piece, narrative and memoir, and will fill readers with a sense of wonder and hope as they turn each page.
Where do you go after your dream has been shattered?
At age 30, Alice Teisan was an avid cyclist with a big dream: to ride her bicycle on every continent. But that summer, as she was preparing for a cross-country cycling trip, she was struck with a life-altering illness. In a flash, it seemed, her health, her career ambitions, her financial situation, and her plans for the future–not to mention her big dream–were all shattered. Was life still worth living when everything she once held dear was stripped away?
Riding on Faith is the story of how God took Alice's dream and turned it upside down, replacing it with an even bigger dream inside her heart. Hers is a journey full of fear and faith, of loss and transformation, of soaring vistas and desolate valleys. Ultimately, it is a story of hope–that when we give God our dreams, He will transform them into something grander than we ever imagined.
"This is a compelling read! Anyone interested in ministry and missions...will be into the story by page 3." STEVE SAINT, Founder and president of ITEC "What a story! Alice Teisan is a living example of how to turn adversity into opportunity, suffering into service, and disappointment into dreams-come-true." KEVIN MILLER, Former executive vice president of Christianity Today "You'll enjoy reading this remarkable story of overcoming adversity through faith in Christ and a God-given vision to serve others." WAYNE SHEPHERD, Christian radio host.
Alice Teisan is the founder and executive director of His Wheels International, a ministry that has distributed more than 1,500 bikes and trikes to people affiliated with 88 countries on six continents. She is an inspiration speaker who has been a guest on several national radio shows, including Chris Fabry Live and First Person with Wayne Shepherd.

When my son, Gary Gray, was killed by an avalanche while climbing Mount Shuksan in the North Cascades, he was buried under tons of ice and snow. I was told his body might never be recovered and that perhaps I should consider him now a part of the mountain. It was the beginning of a journey unlike any I had taken before. For the next few years I traveled through devastating grief and tortuous self-doubt while unsuccessfully searching for reasons why my son’s life was taken by the very planet he was trying to save. Was it his destiny, kismet, or fate? Or was it just plain old bad luck? I had to try to find out. After three years of being in limbo and soul-searching, and just when I thought he would remain in his icy sarcophagus forever, the mountain was ready to give him up. His body was recovered under extraordinary, miraculous circumstances and the stunning sequence of events surrounding the incredible recovery was to change forever the way I think and believe. My slightly skeptical nature could not help but grow into spiritual enlightenment after experiencing such miracles first hand. Gary was a lover of nature and he loved the wilderness with all his heart. He was an adventurer who experienced life to the full and a mountain climber who was passionate about environment al issues. But the book is not so much about the man, but about the inexplicable events that surrounded his death and recovery. It’s about passion and miracles and love everlasting. And it’s typical of him that he used to sign all his cards and letters, Love & Life, Gary.
An inspiring biographical account of a young boy’s chaotic life in a remote, wild, corner of East Africa.
Born in Africa, James’s childhood is spent on an isolated gold-mine near Lake Victoria, Tanganyika, with just his sister and mother; his father tragically dying through injuries sustained from World War II. His upbringing is mainly left to a tribal ayah called Amina and an elderly Swahili man, and he learns to speak Swahili before English.
In this unusual setting he soon discovers some stark facts about life through tragedy and danger, but it is the local watu, imbued with kindness and irrepressible humour, that save him from despair, and with whom he learns to fish with home-made lines, eat insects and famously abuse the European hierarchy in real Swahili!
Known as ‘Jimu’ to his friends, he marks out his own country with a Sukuma boy named Lutoli, falls deeply in love with the beautiful, but older, German girl Gretchen and throws himself out of the back of a bus to avoid being sent away to school. Once at school, in Arusha, James tends to mix with other non-conformers and presents a dilemma to teachers – he is a white boy with a ‘black spirit’. His gang gets up to nefarious enterprises, bringing them into a state of permanent conflict with the system.
James is fascinated with the history of Tanganyika back to the time when it was a German Colony until 1918. The unparalleled courage of the German leader Paul von Lettow Vorbeck against the British is a beacon to the young boy of what can be accomplished against adversity
Above all James discovers the world, and life, a little by education, a lot by accident, but overwhelmingly by fate and happenstance, in circumstances few people in the developed world have experienced.

The Cat Manual is hilarious for cat-lovers of all ages.
Being a stand-up comedian isn't nearly as glamorous as people think. The average working comic will never get any major television exposure, never make six figures, and never even have a taste of true fame. Each comedian has a dream to become rich and famous, but most are happy just to be working. That's the life of a road comic.
This book is about one such comedian. Along the way, there are tales of drunken debauchery with gorgeous women (who might actually be men) and random forgotten nights spent waking up in the hospital. There are tales how it feels to perform for an audience of six and how a comedian get treated when he's thrown in jail.
Above all, it's an insider's look at what life is like on the bottom rung of the show business ladder. What happens onstage is often very funny, but it's a comedian's failure offstage that ultimately makes the best read. That is what "Four Wheels and a Microphone" is all about.
A funny look at a job that isn't always as exciting as it looks from the cheap seats, this comic memoir is full of humour, wit...and maybe even a little heart along the way.
Christopher would always be there for Rebecca no matter what it took, from the beaches of Jersey to the hell of the holocaust and Auschwitz.
The prisoners in Auschwitz called it Canada, the land of unimaginable riches, where the last possessions of those who perished in the gas chambers were gathered and counted. Christopher is the new head of Canada, the ‘Dollar King.’ He is the one who controls the river of dirty money flowing through the camp. But Christopher is on a different mission. He is not in Auschwitz to serve the Reich, but to find Rebecca, lost somewhere inside the sprawling system of concentration camps set up to murder the innocent victims of the holocaust.
They were six years old when they meet on the island of Jersey in 1924. Christopher, recently arrived from Germany with his sister, and grieving father, and Rebecca, born and raised on the island, the daughter of an abusive father and alcoholic mother. Their lives would never be the same. When Rebecca runs away as a teenager to England to escape her parents Christopher thinks he has lost her forever, but nothing can keep them apart, not her parents, or the fiancée she brings back with her from England, or even the war clouds gathering over Europe. When World War II comes to Jersey with the Nazi invaders, Christopher tries to hide Rebecca’s Jewish roots, but along with millions of other victims of the holocaust, Rebecca is swallowed up by the evils of the Nazi regime.
As Christopher searches for Rebecca he finds the noose around his own neck tightening, as he struggles to not only maintain his cover, but also the grip on his soul amongst the melee of death and corruption that is daily currency in the camp. Christopher knows that one misstep by him will mean not only the end of his own life but surely that of Rebecca’s also. But Christopher finds that his position in the camp as the man in charge of the money in the corrupt world of Auschwitz affords him opportunities, and that sometimes the mission, and the life that fate leads us to is not necessarily the one we had in mind.
