    And Other Essays

    In this essay collection, Michael Cohen presents the odd idea of the suicide note as a writing project that can be critiqued like any other, describes encounters with illegal border crossers in south Texas, and ponders the sudden popularity of books about atheism. Books are a frequent subject here, and Cohen makes an argument for The Maltese Falcon as the Great American Novel, searches for the perfect, the Platonic, nature handbook, and compares playing golf to reading about it. Reading is, for him, as engrossing a form of experience as any other—say hitchhiking through the Southwest with an old friend, the joys of flying small planes, or the charm of studying ancient Greek while people-watching at the gym, all experiences chronicled here. He looks back at the effect a 1956 collision of two airliners over the Grand Canyon had on him as a kid fond of flying, and how he learned about the joys of good food during a wanderjahr in Europe. Many of these essays begin with a question: whether Americans deserve their reputation for materialism, why we seem to have lost the climate change battle, and whether talking to yourself might really be beneficial. Another frequent topic is how our ideal places cannot avoid being bruised by time. He looks at what happened as the Tucson bars of his college days closed or morphed into very different places. He traces seasonal changes in the desert. He notes what happens to its effect when a giant cross beside I-40 in Texas is joined by equally giant windmills. And he takes a mind’s-eye tour through Paris’s terrace cafés and their literary associations after the 2015 terrorist attack there.Michael's previous collection with IP is A Place to Read

    This is a 3-book bundle, which addresses various subtopics, including but not limited to these: 
      
      
    Book 1: Are there sociopaths in your life? You bet! You may not recognize them, or they may not be serial killers. Perhaps they are not causing any trouble at all. But to know what to look for, is pretty important, if you ask me. It’s interesting that some people just don’t have that much of a conscience. And every person chooses how to deal with that differently. It can reflect on their actions in different ways. 
      
    Moreover, sociopaths typically abuse the conscience of others by manipulating them with guilt-trips, blackmail, and other secret techniques. Psychopaths are similar, but they are not the same. We will discuss that too. 
      
      
    Book 2: Are narcissists sociopaths? 
      
    And if they are different, then can someone be both? 
      
    These and many other questions will be answered in this guide. You will learn, on top of that, how parents can struggle with sociopathic kids and how you can do better. You will also learn about the American culture and why sociopaths are generally liked by the masses (trust me, it’s true… I’ve seen it over and over again: Fake wins over the truth in a culture driven by emotion, drama, and glamour. 
      
    Book 3: In this guide, we will focus on several topics. For one, we will explore the reasons why so many times, sociopaths and narcissists are elected as leaders of countries, cities, or companies. We will also study sociopaths’ seduction techniques and the ratio in the population as compare to earlier in history. Furthermore, you will learn more about the tips sociopaths give each to manipulate their victims. And last but not least, we will show you some pointers to dealing with sociopath children.

    A brilliant narrative investigation into the 1920s case that inspired Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers and Margery Allingham.In 1922, Major Herbert Armstrong, a Hay-on-Wye solicitor, was found guilty of, and executed for, poisoning his wife, Katharine, with arsenic.Armstrong's case has all the ingredients of a classic murder mystery, from a plot by Agatha Christie or Dorothy Sayers (indeed some aspects of his story appear in Sayers' Unnatural Death). It is a near-perfect whodunnit.One hundred years later, Agatha Award-shortlisted Stephen Bates examines and retells the story of the case, evoking the period and atmosphere of the early 1920s, a time of newspaper sensationalism, hypocrisy and sanctimonious morality.

    In the fall of 1999, a twenty-two-year-old woman was discovered naked and bleeding on the streets of a small New Mexico town south of Albuquerque. She was chained to a padlocked metal collar. The tale she told authorities—of being beaten, raped, and tortured with electric shock—was unthinkable. Until she led them to fifty-nine-year-old David Ray Parker, his thirty-nine-year-old fiancée Cindy Hendy, and the lakeside trailer they called their "toy box." What the FBI uncovered was unprecedented in the annals of serial crime: restraining devices, elaborate implements of torture, books on human anatomy, medical equipment, scalpels, and a gynecologist's examination table. But these horrors were only part of the shocking story that would unfold in a stunning trial . . .

    This Is Not a T-Shirt - A Brand...

    This program is read by the author.The story of The Hundreds and the precepts that made it an iconic streetwear brand by Bobby Hundreds himself. 
    Streetwear occupies that rarefied space where genuine "cool" coexists with big business; where a star designer might work concurrently with Nike, a tattoo artist, Louis Vuitton, and a skateboard company. It's the ubiquitous style of dress comprising hoodies, sneakers, and T-shirts. In the beginning, a few brands defined this style; fewer still survived as streetwear went mainstream. They are the OGs, the "heritage brands." The Hundreds is one of those persevering companies, and Bobby Hundreds is at the center of it all. 
    The creative force behind the brand, Bobby Kim, a.k.a. Bobby Hundreds, has emerged as a prominent face and voice in streetwear. In telling the story of his formative years, he reminds us that The Hundreds was started by outsiders; and this is truly the story of streetwear culture. 
    In This Is Not a T-Shirt, Bobby Hundreds cements his spot as a champion of an industry he helped create and tells the story of The Hundreds—with anecdotes ranging from his Southern California, punk-DIY-tinged youth to the brand's explosive success. Both an inspiring memoir and an expert assessment of the history and future of streetwear, this is the tale of Bobby's commitment to his creative vision and to building a real community.
