Narrated by the author, this book has energy, insight, and humor. What is it that prevents us from making deeper, more long-lasting connections with others? To author John Klymshyn, the answer lies in our understanding of the power of language. We must study, explore, and practice deeper dialogue in order to connect, communicate, collaborate, and contribute!Listen to this fascinating study of how language works, written by someone who has gone beyond 10,000 hours of study and practice. Klymshyn is an entertaining teacher and an insightful guide. His writing has been hailed as "powerful", "inspiring", and very practical. His delivery draws the listener in.... His enthusiasm comes across and is particularly vibrant in his impassioned narration.Klymshyn has taught (spoken, coached) throughout the world, and his developing message is brought to profound focus in this work. People from Lithuania to Spain, from Canada to Brazil, from the US to Germany have taken his "every day list" to heart (Listen to chapter 5). Connecting, leveraging language, finding more depth in our relationships, in and through our work, and as a result...life makes us more rounded as humans.John's audiobooks have an energy and power that prompts repeated listenings. Listen to the retail sample and you will quickly understand why.Klymshyn explains: "This journey began with the concept of 'The Stunning Alchemy of Solid Language'. The first time I stated that as an intent, it was responded to by a live audience of executives who run an eight billion dollar organization. These were experienced leaders, who prided themselves on the humanity of their approach to leadership. I took the concept and wrote an article, then spoke about it again for months. I then built the framework for the audiobook and almost two years later, the Deeper Dialogue: Conversations That Inspire was completed. I hope it speaks to you." 1. Language: English.

Do you want to learn more about World War II, but don’t have time to read huge, long books? Then let The History Journals take you on an hourly history tour of the different facets of the war. In this edition, learn about the plot to kill Adolf Hitler dubbed Operation Valkyrie. When Adolf Hitler stormed to power in Germany during the 1930s, he experienced little opposition for his plans to re-build his adopted homeland after the restraints put upon the country and the reparations they were forced to pay to the victorious Allies in the aftermath of the First World War. Nevertheless, it may come as a surprise to discover that as early as 1938, even before the outbreak of World War II, conspiratorial groups had developed within the German army, with the objective of actually preventing Hitler launching a global conflict. The story of the German Resistance is one that is rarely heard, but the bravery of the conspirators, despite their lack of success in stopping Hitler in his tracks, is nothing short of heroic. During the opening years of World War II Hitler and his military machine succeeded in virtually every campaign, making a coup unrealistic, but as the Allies gained strength, especially after the Americans entered the fray at the end of 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, an attempt on Hitler’s life began to become viable.However, it was 1944 before Operation Valkyrie and Colonel Count Claus von Stauffenberg got within striking distance of assassinating the Fuhrer, and in The Hitler Conspiracies you can follow this remarkable plot that very nearly ended Hitler’s reign of terror, proving beyond doubt that within his own ranks there were those prepared to risk their lives for the sake of humanity.The History JournalsWe create enlightening history books for people looking to learn about topics in a quick study-guide format. Our books won’t take you days to listen to - but can be enjoyed over 1. Language: English. Narrator: Liam Dale. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/162919/bk_acx0_162919_sample.mp3.

The Swiss Confederation spans some 41,293 square km in west-central Europe. Bounding Switzerland are Germany to the north, France to the west, Italy to the south, and Liechtenstein and Austria to the east. Around 70% of Switzerland's terrain is mountainous, much of its land rippling along the Bernese, Rhaetian, and Pennine Alps. The mighty Rhine River drains 68% of the land here, and some 60% is either pastureland or forest. Switzerland enjoys a high standard of living, with among the world's lowest unemployment, highest income, and longest life expectancy rates. The Valais region encompasses Switzerland's most rugged terrain. Our coverage extends from the gateway city of Geneva to the upper reaches of the Walliser Alps along the Italian frontier. Visitors are apt to enter the region in Geneva, a small, cosmopolitan city between the border of France and the western end of Lake Geneva, known in French as Lac Leman. The city bustles with the business of international organizations, plays along a garden-lined lakefront, and harbors a pleasant pedestrian old town. The city of Lausanne lies across the lake, drawing visitors for its own pleasant lakefront and the Olympic Games History Museum. Beyond, in the Valais region, protrudes the magnificent Matterhorn Peak, with famed Zermatt at its foot and secluded Saas-Fee just over the hill. In southeastern Switzerland, Zermatt reclines amid a cluster of 38 4,000-m peaks. Above the town towers the distinctive hook of the Matterhorn crest. But, curiously, few here pay much attention. In this glamorous town, electric taxis tear through the alleys, moving shoppers, sightseers, and skiers at a frantic pace. For this jet-setting clientele, Zermatt isn't a place to relax; it's a place to play, and play hard. All of the details you need to know are in this guide - where to stay, where to eat, where to play and where to party. Plus the mountain climbing adventures, the hikes and walks, the bike trails and much more. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert E. Prout.

Painting Beyond Pollock is a captivating account of the history of European and American painting from the mid-20th century onwards. Painting, with its endless capacity for reinvention, continues to occupy a privileged position in Western art. Since the mid-20th century, new practices have pushed art into territories such as performance and installation, leading some critics and artists to declare painting irrelevant or even finished. But these developments have, in fact, driven painting to new heights of innovation and interest, making these seventy years arguably the most lively in its history. Morgan Falconer tells the story beginning with Jackson Pollock and the Abstract Expressionists on both sides of the Atlantic, proceeds through postwar abstraction in France, social realism in East Germany, the end of geometric abstraction in Europe, American post-painterly abstraction, the handmade ready-mades of Rauschenberg and Johns, Pop's rise in Britain and the US, painting's confrontations with photography in the 1960s and beyond, the return of expressionism in the 1980s, new approaches to Pop in the 1990s and 2000s, and the continued variety of some of the most recent paintings to be made by a younger, 'post-medium' generation of artists. Painting Beyond Pollock is an illuminating guide for both specialists and enthusiasts of painting, written in language that is intelligent and accessible.
