You will discover the 100 most absurd and tragic, sometimes funny, ways to die, which will make you feel cold and smile at the same time. Each one is a reminder of the unbearable fragility of existence and the need to avoid risky behaviour.

    You are not a failure. And you are not alone. You are being scammed by a system that promises quick fixes that fix nothing and sells you money-sucking programs that do nothing but fuel overeating. At each meal, 93 million overweight American adults and 14 million overweight children and adolescents risk their lives. More than 300,000 die unnecessarily every year from obesity-related diseases.Hazel Dixon-Cooper was a size twenty-two woman in a size two world until she dumped the weight-loss industry, discovered how food companies lie, and learned that doctors rarely know more about nutrition than we do.Confessions of a Fat Cosmo Girl examines the most popular weight-loss programs and reveals the truth about why they fail; confronts the medical profession's solution of slice-and-dice bariatric surgery; and debunks the deceptive benefits of fad diets and over-the-counter weight-loss products. The book also explores sugar addiction and how it contributes to every major life-threatening disease; shows you how to clear your life of toxic food, toxic people, and your own toxic beliefs; proves the life-saving benefits of moving to a plant-based diet; and offers a twenty-one-day challenge that will change your life.

    Grant's Victory - How Ulysses S...

    Two of the great themes of the Civil War are how Lincoln found his war-winning general in Ulysses Grant and how Grant finally defeated Lee. Grant's Victory intertwines these two threads in a grand narrative that shows how Grant made the difference in the war. At Eastern theater battlefields from Bull Run to Gettysburg, Union commanders—whom Lincoln replaced after virtually every major battle—had struggled to best Lee, either suffering embarrassing defeat or failing to follow up success. Meanwhile, in the West, Grant had been refining his art of war at places like Fort Donelson, Shiloh, Vicksburg, and Chattanooga, and in early 1864, Lincoln made him general-in-chief. Arriving in the East almost deus ex machina, and immediately recognizing what his predecessors never could, Grant pressed Lee in nearly continuous battle for the next eleven months—a series of battles and sieges that ended at Appomattox.

    Dr. Ed Panosian has dedicated his life to the study and teaching of world history. Yet, his own astounding story is relatively unknown. Panosian's grandparents, aunts, and uncles were among the 1.5 million people killed by Islamic Turks during the Armenian genocide (1915-1918). His own parents narrowly—and providentially—escaped martyrdom, immigrating to the United States, living out the American Dream, and raising a son who became an iconic professor to nearly 30,000 students. This biography is a narrative of suffering and survival, of cruelty and courage, of heartache and hope, of faith and faithfulness. Above all, it is a record of God’s gracious providence. 
    Hear Dr. Panosian's iconic voice in this brand new audiobook production read by Chris Anderson (author) and Dr. Ed Panosian himself, with help from his wife Betty Panosian, his daughter Lisa Panosian, David Bean, and Lindsay Morgan Bean.
