The Little Stranger , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 967min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Exclusive to download: includes an interview with Sarah Waters giving an insight into the story behind The Little Stranger.   A ghost story from one of Britain's finest and best loved writers. After her award-winning trilogy of Victorian novels, Sarah Waters turned to the 1940s and wrote The Night Watch, a tender and tragic novel set against the backdrop of wartime Britain. Short-listed for both the Orange and the Man Booker, it went straight to number one in the best-seller chart.  In a dusty postwar summer in rural Warwickshire, a doctor is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall. Home to the Ayres family for over two centuries, the Georgian house, once grand and handsome, is now in decline, its masonry crumbling, its gardens choked with weeds, the clock in its stable yard permanently fixed at twenty to nine. But are the Ayreses haunted by something more sinister than a dying way of life? Little does Dr Faraday know how closely, and how terrifyingly, their story is about to become entwined with his.  Prepare yourself. From this wonderful writer who continues to astonish us, now comes a chilling ghost story. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Simon Vance. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/twuk/000231/bk_twuk_000231_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

For fifty years the abortion debate has remained stagnant, trapped in sterile categories and familiar rhetoric. Each side thinks they know what the other has to say, so they don't listen. Consequently, they have become deaf to each other's pleas.Danielle D'Souza Gill, in a pathbreaking new book, blows the lid off the abortion debate, which is radically different than it was when the Supreme Court issued its landmark ruling of Roe v. Wade in 1973. Technology has transformed the landscape and allowed people to see development in the womb. Ultrasound has rendered many old assumptions about abortion obsolete.The Democratic Left has become radicalized on abortion. It is no longer a necessary evil, but a positive good. Consequently, the Left has legitimized a form of mass killing in this country that dwarfs the deaths caused by cancer, smoking, homicide, terrorism, and war.Writing with freshness, intelligence, and insight, Danielle explores the contours of the debate, taking into account new ideas, new technology, and new laws and putting forth a new vision for a life-affirming society.In Socratic style, Danielle builds her case in response to the strongest contentions of the pro-choice camp. She engages their most powerful arguments head-on, carefully examines them, and then dismantles them. The result is a pro-life argument so persuasive that it will reach into the heart of the most hardened opponent.While it is a heartbreaking book, it is in the end inspiring. No matter what you believe about abortion, this book will educate, astonish, and deeply move you. It may move you to a position different from what you now hold.If you read one book about abortion, make it this one, The Choice: The Abortion Divide in America.

What Matters Now
22,51 € *

Critical insight from the man Fortune called "the world's leading expert on business strategy"About the only thing a leader can be sure of is that what worked yesterday is unlikely to work today, let alone tomorrow. Never before have businesses faced a more fractured, contentious and dynamic environment. If ever there was a need for fundamentally new thinking about values, competition, leadership, organization talent, and how these things are directly tied to management, it is now. Gary Hamel lays out an essential agenda in a world where old nostrums aren't merely useless, but downright toxic.- Contains more than 25 standalone chapters in six sections that are brutally honest and tackle critical management and leadership challenges head-on - Explains how to move from defense to offense, reverse the tide of commoditization, and outrun change - Tackles how to effectively hack management, capture the moral high ground, and foster extraordinary contribution - Written by one of the world's most prescient management experts and the acclaimed author of The Future of Management Concise and to the point, What Matters Now will inspire leaders to rethink their business, their management, and how they lead.This is not a book about one thing. It's not a 250-page dissertation on leadership, teams or motivation. Instead, it's an agenda for building organizations that can flourish in a world of diminished hopes, relentless change and ferocious competition. This is not a book about doing better. It's not a manual for people who want to tinker at the margins. Instead, it's an impassioned plea to reinvent management as we know it--to rethink the fundamental assumptions we have about capitalism, organizational life, and the meaning of work. Leaders today confront a world where the unprecedented is the norm. Wherever one looks, one sees the exceptional and the extraordinary: * Business newspapers decrying the state of capitalism. * Once-innovative companies struggling to save off senescence. * Next gen employees shunning blue chips for social start-ups. * Corporate miscreants getting pilloried in the blogosphere. * Entry barriers tumbling in what were once oligopolistic strongholds. * Hundred year-old business models being rendered irrelevant overnight. * Newbie organizations crowdsourcing their most creative work. * National governments lurching towards bankruptcy. * Investors angrily confronting greedy CEOs and complacent boards. * Newly omnipotent customers eagerly wielding their power. * Social media dramatically transforming the way human beings connect, learn and collaborate. Obviously, there are lots of things that matter now. But in a world of fractured certainties and battered trust, some things matter more than others. While the challenges facing organizations are limitless; leadership bandwidth isn't. That's why you have to be clear about what really matters now. What are the fundamental, make-or-break issues that will determine whether your organization thrives or dives in the years ahead? Hamel identifies five issues are that are paramount: values, innovation, adaptability, passion and ideology. In doing so he presents an essential agenda for leaders everywhere who are eager to... * move from defense to offense * reverse the tide of commoditization * defeat bureaucracy * astonish their customers * foster extraordinary contribution * capture the moral high ground * outrun change * build a company that's truly fit for the future Concise and to the point, the book will inspire you to rethink your business, your company and how you lead.
