#ad
HarperCollins e-books #ad - For thousands of years, but also extremely dead chinese philosopher Sun Tzu, people have been reading the writings of the deeply wise, who was perhaps the first to look on the waging of war as a strategic art that could be taught to people who wished to be warlords and other kinds of senior managers.

In a nutshell, sun tzu taught that readiness is all, that knowledge of oneself and the enemy was the foundation of strength and that those who fight best are those who are prepared and wise enough not to fight at all. We're going to tell him to get lost and inform our readers how real war is currently conducted on the battlefield of life.

Sun tzu was a sissy will transcend all those efforts and teach the reader how to make war, win and enjoy the plunder in the real world, where those who do not kick, gouge and grab are left behind at the table to pay the tab.

All military strategies will be explored, rampaging, from mustering, scheming, organizing, plotting, equipping, squashing and reaping spoils. Every other book on the Art of War bows low to Sun Tzu. Students of bing will be taught how to plan and execute battles that hurt other people a lot, and advance their flags and those of their friends, if possible.

We live in a vicious, highly competitive workplace environment, and things aren't getting any better.

Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes: A No-Bullshit Guide to World Mythology

TarcherPerigee #ad - Get this:Cronus liked to eat babies. Narcissus probably should have just learned to masturbate. Odin got construction discounts with bestiality. Isis had bad taste in jewelry. Ganesh was the very definition of an unplanned pregnancy. And abraham was totally cool about stabbing his kid in the face. All our lives, we’ve been fed watered-down, PC versions of the classic myths.

These are rude, totally sacred texts told the way they were meant to be told: loudly, crude, and with lots of four-letter words. Skeptical? here are a few more gems to consider:• Zeus once stuffed an unborn fetus inside his thigh to save its life after he exploded its mother by being too good in bed.

Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes: A No-Bullshit Guide to World Mythology #ad - The entire egyptian universe was saved because Sekhmet just got too hammered to keep murdering everyone. The hindu universe is run by a married couple who only stop murdering in order to throw sweet dance parties…on the corpses of their enemies. The norse goddess freyja once consented to a four-dwarf gangbang in exchange for one shiny necklace.

And there’s more dysfunctional goodness where that came from. In reality, mythology is more screwed up than a schizophrenic shaman doing hits of unidentified…wait, it all makes sense now. In zeus grants stupid wishes, creator of Myths RETOLD!, Cory O’Brien, sets the stories straight.

They Laughed at Galileo: How the Great Inventors Proved Their Critics Wrong

#ad
Skyhorse #ad - Drake’s eventual success on august 27, 1859, was called the day “the crazy man first struck oil. Louis pasteur’s theory of germs was considered a “ridiculous fiction. Each of these inventions has had a profound effect on the course of human history, resisted, and each one was rejected, and ridiculed in its day.

Ultimately, the innovators who brought these into existence provided invaluable contributions to science and the culture of humankind. Edward L. For them, but for the vast majority, including the acknowledged experts of their days, the future was clear and obvious, such belief was sheer folly. For just about everything that has improved our modern lifestyles in a way that our ancestors could not possibly imagine, there was once a lone dreamer proclaiming, “It can be done.

They Laughed at Galileo: How the Great Inventors Proved Their Critics Wrong #ad - That dreamer was nearly always opposed by a team of “enlightened” contemporaries publicly declaring, “It cannot be done. Well, yes it could. Marconi’s wireless radio transmissions were initially deemed pointless. A humorous account of great inventors and their critics who predicted failure. They laughed at galileo takes a humorous and reflective look at one thousand years of the development of humankind: those who dreamt, and those who, ultimately, those who opposed, those who taught, did.
