    Angels in the Sky is the gripping story of how an all-volunteer air force helped defeat five Arab nations and protect the fledgling Jewish state. 
    It is the exhilarating account of a ragtag band of volunteer airmen from around the world who fought for Israel during the war of independence. They arrived from America, Canada, Britain, France, and South Africa. Almost all were World War II combat veterans. Many, but not all, were Jewish, and many knowingly violated their nations' embargoes on the shipment of arms and aircraft to Israel. They smuggled in Messerschmitt fighters from Czechoslovakia, painting over swastikas with Israeli stars. They flew British-built Spitfires and American Mustangs, risking their lives for a righteous cause. Surrounded by Egyptian, Jordanian, Iraqi, Syrian, and Lebanese forces, Israel would have been crushed without the air support provided by the "angels in the sky." 
    Briskly written and based on first-person interviews and extensive archival research, here is a modern-day David-and-Goliath tale and popular history at its best.

    Discover the transformative power of modern hypnosis and how it can change your life. 
    Do you feel trapped in negative thought and behavior patterns? Have you tried other hypnosis methods and books without getting the desired results? If you identify with these situations, it is possible that the real problem has not been adequately addressed: breaking through the critical factor of the brain to access the subconscious directly and effectively. 
    The Revolutionary Approach to Modern Hypnosis 
    Unlike other books on hypnosis, this work harnesses the incredible power of the neural algorithm of artificial intelligence (AI) to design highly effective, accurate, and powerful suggestions that resemble the way the subconscious processes information. This innovative approach has revolutionized the way hypnotherapies are transformed, creating precise and highly effective scripts that other approaches have failed to achieve. 
    For example, Chapter 6: Self-Hypnosis: The Art of Mastering Your Mind teaches you how the Jaimez method of self-hypnosis, even with your eyes open, overcomes the limitations of other techniques and crosses the critical brain factor with guaranteed success. 
    Why is this book different? 
    The unique approach of this book not only changes your perspective on hypnosis, but also offers you practical and effective solutions to approach problems from a new angle. As you explore its table of contents, you will find information that is unique and different from the rest, with concrete examples of how modern hypnosis can improve your life. 
    In Chapter 4: The Mind-Body Connection: How Hypnosis Can Improve Physical Health, you will learn how hypnosis can have a positive impact on your overall well-being. Chapter 15: Hypnosis and Learning: Optimizing Knowledge Acquisition will show you how hypnosis can help you acquire new knowledge more efficiently.

    How Musicals Work - And How to...

    Musicals are the most popular form of stage entertainment today, with the West End and Broadway dominated by numerous long-running hits. But for every Wicked or Phantom of the Opera, there are dozens of casualties that didn't fare quite so well. In this book, Julian Woolford explores the musical-theatre canon to explain why and how some musicals work, why some don't, and what you should (and shouldn't) do if you're thinking of writing your own.
    Drawing on his experience as a successful writer and director of musicals, and as a lecturer in writing musicals at the University of London, Woolford outlines every step of the creative process, from hatching the initial idea and developing a structure for the work, through creating the book, the music and the lyrics, and on to the crucial process of rewriting. He then guides the reader through getting a musical produced, with invaluable advice about generating future productions and sustaining a career.
    The book includes dozens of exercises to assist the novice writer in developing their craft, and detailed case studies of well-known musicals such as Les Miserables, The Sound of Music, Miss Saigon, Little Shop of Horrors, Godspel and Evita.
    An essential guide for any writers (or would-be writers) of musicals, How Musicals Work is a fascinating insight for anyone interested in the art form or who has ever wondered what it takes to get from first idea to first night.
    'If anyone knows how musicals work (I'm not sure I do), this highly entertaining dissection of every aspect of that bewildering art form reveals that Julian Woolford does.' Tim Rice
    'Excellent... a useful source of information' The Stage

    The Last Victorians - A Daring...

    Ever since the publication of Lytton Strachey's Eminent Victorians in 1918 it has been fashionable to ridicule the great figures of the nineteenth century. From the longreigning monarch herself to the celebrated writers, philanthropists and politicians of the day, the Victorians have been dismissed as hypocrites and frauds - or worse. Yet not everyone in the twentieth century agreed with Strachey and his followers. To a handful of eccentrics born during Victoria's reign, the nineteenth century remained the greatest era in human history: a time of high culture for the wealthy, 'improvement' for the poor, and enlightened imperial rule for the 400 million inhabitants of the British Empire. They were, to friend and foe alike, 'the last Victorians' - relics of a bygone civilisation. In this daring group biography, W. Sydney Robinson explores the extraordinary lives of four of these Victorian survivors: the 'Puritan Home Secretary', William Joynson-Hicks (1865-1932); the 'Gloomy Dean' of St Paul's Cathedral, W. R. Inge (1860-1954); the belligerent founder of the BBC, John Reith (1889-1971), and the ultra-patriotic popular historian and journalist Arthur Bryant (1899- 1985). While revealing their manifold foibles and eccentricities, Robinson argues that these figures were truly great - even in error.

    At its peak, the Etruscan society of age-old Italy covered circa what's now Tuscany, western Umbria, and northern Lazio, and areas of what's now the Po Valley, Emilia-Romagna, south-eastern Lombardy, southern Veneto, and small parts of Campania. 
    The first proof of an Etruscan society might be traced back to around 900 BC. 
    This is the Iron Age Villanovan culture, which emerged from the former late Bronze Age Proto-Villanovan civilization in the exact same area and is considered the first stage of Etruscan civilization. 
    Etruscan society lasted till it was taken in by Roman culture. Assimilation started due to the Roman-- Etruscan Wars in the late fourth century BC; it heightened with the grant of Roman citizenship in ninety BC, and was finished in 27 BC, when the Etruscans' terrain was taken in into the freshly established Roman Empire. 
    In this guide, you will learn about these things and many other aspects of the Etruscan civilization.
