Summary

The Log Book of a lone Astronaut/Psychonaut/Holonaut in a holographic exploration through space and time to an extremely large planet in the distant recesses of an unknown galaxy - resembling in many respects a human eye (named Ocularis). Mimetic in character, it has somehow focused its gaze on the Earth and its water and has consequently created weird and wonderful organisms in its vast internal fluid-filled centre.

    To millions of listeners, Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run is much more than a rock-and-roll album-it's a poetic explosion of freedom and frustration. It confirmed Springsteen's status as a quintessential American performer: the rocker who, more than any other, gives voice to our hopes, fears, and aspirations. Runaway Dream chronicles the making of the album that launched Springsteen and his E Street Band into the firmament of American art, deftly sketching the ambition, history, and personalities that combined to create the enduring Born to Run.  
    Springsteen wanted Born to Run to be the greatest rock record ever made. For a musician with just two modest-selling LPs to his credit, it was an extraordinary ambition, and session by session, track by track, Masur shows just how much grit, as well as genius, went into realizing it. Runaway Dream offers an expert tour of the trials and triumphs of Springsteen's work. In addition to the story of the album itself, Masur masterfully places Born to Run within American cultural history, showing why the girls, hot rods, and Jersey nights of the album still resonate, even for listeners born years after its release.

    Everything After: A Rocker Romance 
    Life is made of moments; little pieces of time. Most pass by with little significance, while a small few have the ability to alter our entire course. 
    That is exactly what I've spent my twenty-two years on this earth trying to avoid. 
    For as long as I can remember my life has been mapped out; a series of events that I check off of a list. Each task leading me to the next. Where I go, what I do, and ultimately, who I become. I know exactly what my next steps are going to be. At least I thought I did, until Killian Adair came crashing into my life. 
    The frontman for Everything After, a hot new rock band breaking out onto the scene; Killian embodies the rock star persona. With looks that have women flocking to him in droves, the only thing hotter than his appearance, is his sexy Irish accent. Unpredictable and wild, Killian and I couldn't be more different. 
    One look and I knew I was in trouble. 
    Sometimes that's all it takes. 
    That's the funny thing about moments; just one, can change everything...

    Game of Thrones on Business -...

    We have always learned through stories, and in Game of Thrones on Business managers learn from the parallels drawn between HBO’s global phenomenon and today’s business world. The authors also use stories and characters from the series to breathe life into management theory. Readers will discover:
    • What Tywin Lannister has in common with Steve Jobs;
    • Why Ned Stark should have had a scenario-planning meeting;
    • What Daenerys Targaryen can teach us about servant leadership;
    • How to network like Littlefinger;
    • Why behaving like Jon Snow will just antagonise your boss.
    Game of Thrones may look like a story that is as far removed from modern business as is possible, but look a little closer and you’ll notice that the differences are merely superficial: that hostile small council meeting is a boardroom showdown, Daenerys Targaryen is the business ingenue you can’t afford to disregard and the White Walkers are a slowly advancing threat to your company’s survival.
    If you think you can stomach the cut and thrust of business this book will show you the insider tricks for success and the hidden pitfalls to watch out for. But remember, if you want to go all the way it takes full commitment: when you play the game of thrones you win or you die. There is no middle ground.
