PDF ebooks For The Last Lecture

Alot of professors give talks titled “The Last Lecture.” Maybe you’ve seen one. It has become a common exercise on college campuses. Professors are asked to consider their demise and to ruminate
on what matters most to them.

And while they speak, audiences can’t help but mull the same question: What wisdom would we impart to the world if we knew it was our last chance? If we had to vanish tomorrow, what would we want
as our legacy?

For years, Carnegie Mellon had a “Last Lecture Series.” But by the time organizers got around to asking me to do it, they’d renamed their series “Journeys,” asking selected professors “to offer reflections on their personal and professional journeys.” It wasn’t the most exciting description, but I
agreed to go with it. I was given the September slot...............

Ebooks For The Hunger Games

Suzanne Collins Author
Paperback: 384 pages
Publisher: Scholastic Press; Reprint edition (July 3, 2010)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0439023521

I was barely able to put this book down for any second as soon as the first few pages got me completely hooked. Suzanne Collins narrative here comes with an immediacy with it that, when with the very dramatic life-or-death plot, can be quite compelling. It's entertaining, and intensely disturbing all at one time. If this was simply a good read, I would have given it 4 stars, however they say great art leaves you changed when you experience it... this also book definitely did that. Suzanne Collins has, with one amazing work, propelled herself onto my top shelf.

Parents, caveat emptor! The storyline is brutal. Even though the writing is geared for adults, the primary characters are teenagers, there's hardly any physical romance, as well as the actual violence may possibly count as PG-13 nowadays... it's probably just about the most terrifying books I've read in a very long time! Right on the websites for with George R.R. Martin, or more so. Remember what we learned from Jaws: you don't actually need to SEE the shark for it to be terrifying. Sometimes not seeing the shark is worse.

The story is basically about a teenager who is forced to compete inside a 24-man-enter-1-man-leaves event. I don't want to spoil it by saying any more, but if you liked The Running Man, you will like this. And if you're young enough that that you do not remember The Running Man, nor have you get the Thunderdome reference, then I'm just far too old. But take a well used fogey's advice and focus this book.

The Ultimate Depression Survival Guide | pdf book

Martin D. Weiss Author
Paperback: 220 pages
Publisher: Wiley; 1 edition (June 8, 2010)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0470598212

Weiss' "The Ultimate Depression Survival Guide" is a smart, well-written book full of sound financial principles, all of which make it worth buying. Using historical examples, recent trends, and advice from dad, Weiss brings a well-rounded understanding of the current economic crisis to the reader in a simple, easy-to-understand fashion.

His advice is summed up in a couple quotes: the depression was inevitable because of the housing bust, the mortgage meltdown, and the biggest debt crisis in history. The housing bust was cased by Fannie and Freddie Mac (as Weiss explains, "some of the largest speculative bubbles of all time were born out of government-sponsored monopolies"). And we can "kick the can down the road" (meaning we can bailout broken firms and "stimulate" the economy, but that will just delay the inevitable major crash.

But we can't do anything about our governments' reckless behavior until the next election, so Weis offers immediate advice to readers that they can do somehting about: save, reduce debt and sell stocks (the latter one might not be such a hot idea since it appears the markets have at least started a major rebound). He gives very good advaice about looking for the bottom of the economic retraction: look for the government to capitulate (give up trying to save the world!). He recommends investing in etfs (or reverse etfs) and treasury-only MM Funds
