Tools of Titans

#1 New York Times BestsellerThe latest groundbreaking tome from Tim Ferriss, the best-selling author of The 4-Hour Workweek.From the author: “For the last two years, I’ve interviewed nearly two hundred world-class performers for my podcast,The Tim Ferriss Show. The guests range from super celebs (Jamie Foxx, Arnold Schwarzenegger, etc.) and athletes (icons of powerlifting, gymnastics, surfing, etc.) to legendary Special Operations commanders and black-market biochemists. For most of my guests, it’s the first time they’ve agreed to a two-to-three-hour interview, and the show is on the cusp of passing 100 million downloads.“This book contains the distilled tools, tactics, and ‘inside baseball’ you won’t find anywhere else. It also includes new tips from past guests, and life lessons from new ‘guests’ you haven’t met.“What makes the show different is a relentless focus on actionable details. This is reflected in the questions. For example: What do these people do in the first sixty minutes of each morning? What do their workout routines look like, and why? What books have they gifted most to other people? What are the biggest wastes of time for novices in their field? What supplements do they take on a daily basis?“I don’t view myself as an interviewer. I view myself as an experimenter. If I can’t test something and replicate results in the messy reality of everyday life, I’m not interested.“Everything within these pages has been vetted, explored, and applied to my own life in some fashion. I’ve used dozens of the tactics and philosophies in high-stakes negotiations, high-risk environments, or large business dealings. The lessons have made me millions of dollars and saved me years of wasted effort and frustration.“I created this book, my ultimate notebook of high-leverage tools, for myself. It’s changed my life, and I hope the same for you.”

Too Like the Lightning

**From the winner of the 2017 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer, Ada Palmer’s 2017 ****Compton Crook Award-winning ****political science fiction, *Too Like the Lightning, *ventures into a human future of extraordinary originality**
Mycroft Canner is a convict. For his crimes he is required, as is the custom of the 25th century, to wander the world being as useful as he can to all he meets. Carlyle Foster is a sensayer–a spiritual counselor in a world that has outlawed the public practice of religion, but which also knows that the inner lives of humans cannot be wished away.
The world into which Mycroft and Carlyle have been born is as strange to our 21st-century eyes as ours would be to a native of the 1500s. It is a hard-won utopia built on technologically-generated abundance, and also on complex and mandatory systems of labelling all public writing and speech. What seem to us normal gender distinctions are now distinctly taboo in most social situations. And most of the world’s population is affiliated with globe-girdling clans of the like-minded, whose endless economic and cultural competion is carefully managed by central planners of inestimable subtlety. To us it seems like a mad combination of heaven and hell. To them, it seems like normal life.
And in this world, Mycroft and Carlyle have stumbled on the wild card that may destablize the system: the boy Bridger, who can effortlessly make his wishes come true. Who can, it would seem, bring inanimate objects to life…

Too Good to Be True

“Higgins has a knack for sweet but not syrupy romances peppered with humor and populated  with colorful characters.” -Booklist on Until There Was YouHow far would you go to get over a guy? When Grace Emerson’s ex-fiancé starts dating her younger sister, extreme measures are called for. To keep everyone from obsessing about her love life, Grace announces that she’s seeing someone. Someone wonderful. Someone handsome. Someone completely made up. Who is this Mr. Right? Someone…exactly unlike her renegade neighbor Callahan O’Shea. Well, someone with his looks, maybe. His hot body. His knife-sharp sense of humor. His smarts and big heart. Whoa. No. Callahan O’Shea is not her perfect man! Not with his unsavory past. So why does Mr. Wrong feel so…right?”This chilling paranormal thriller from bestseller Graham…will leave readers well satisfied.” -Publishers Weekly on The Dead RoomThe Flynn brothers have inherited more than  a New Orleans plantation. They’ve inherited a ghostly presence…and a long-kept secret Aidan Flynn, a private investigator and eldest of the Flynn brothers, scoffs at the haunted-house rumors-especially since Kendall Montgomery, a tarot reader who has been living in the mansion, is the one to tell him the tale of a woman in white. But when he finds a human bone on the grounds and another by the river, Aidan delves into the dark history of the Flynn plantation. Forced together to uncover the truth, Aidan and Kendall realize that a serial killer whose victims seem to vanish into thin air has long been at work…and that their own fates are about to be sealed forever unless they believe in the unbelievable.

Tomorrow, the Killing

Once he was a hero of the Great War, and then a member of the dreaded Black House. Now he is the criminal linchpin of Low Town.

His name is Warden.

He thought he had left the war behind him, but a summons from up above brings the past sharply, uncomfortably, back into focus. General Montgomery’s daughter is missing somewhere in Low Town, searching for clues about her brother’s murder. The General wants her found, before the stinking streets can lay claim to her, too.

Origami box folding is a relaxing and satisfying craft for all levels of expertise and with a little practice and this easy origami book gift-giving will never be the same.
**Recensie(s)**

Fuse, author of several books on origami, is considered a master of the art. (…) After a guide that shows the origami symbols and basic folds, the more than three-dozen projects are divided into three categories: simple boxes made using square sheets, modular boxes made using multiple square sheets, and modular boxes made using rectangular sheets. Even the most basic of the projects is impressive, and as Fuse points out, simpler designs are perfectly suited to show off specialty printed paper. The instructions are presented in a numbered sequence of visual symbols with occasional text accompanying, and each project lists the standard-size sheet for it. A terrific guide to learning or practicing origami. – Booklist Critique: Simply stated, Tomoko Fuse’s Origami Boxes is an ideal introduction into the Japanese art form and craft of making origami boxes. Profusely illustrated and thoroughly ‘user friendly’ in organization and presentation, Tomoko Fuse’s Origami Boxes is very highly recommended for personal and academic library do-it-yourself craft collections. (…) gift-giving will never be the same. – Midwest Book Review Tuttle has published an amazing lineup of origami books and kits but they’ve outdone even themselves with this one…Beautifully designed, the instructions include clearly-understandable visual diagrams for each project. -Retailing Insight Origami master Fuse’s brilliant book is an almost wordless pictorial road map to creating palm-size paper boxes and containers. With clearly drawn instructions and photographed finished projects, the book is an excellent introduction to an ancient art form. -Publishers Weekly

Tomb of the Golden Bird

SUMMARY: Banned forever from the eastern end of the Valley of the Kings, eminent Egyptologist Radcliffe Emerson’s desperate attempt to regain digging rights backfires—and his dream of unearthing the tomb of the little-known king Tutankhamon is dashed. Now Emerson, his archaeologist wife, Amelia Peabody, and their family must watch from the sidelines as Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter “discover” the greatest Egyptian treasure of all time. But the Emersons’ own less impressive excavations are interrupted when father and son Ramses are lured into a trap by a strange group of villains ominously demanding answers to a question neither man comprehends. And it will fall to the ever-intrepid Amelia to protect her endangered family—and perhaps her nemesis as well—from a devastating truth hidden uncomfortably close to home . . . and from a nefarious plot that threatens the peace of the entire region.

In this second volume, the new President of Russia is trying to create a new democratic regime.

The Op-Centre team begins a race against the clock and against the hardliners. Their task is made even more difficult by the discovery of a Russian counterpart…but this one’s controlled by those same repressive hardliners.
