Summary

In 'The Science of Prosperity,' an anthology that masterfully weaves together the varied perspectives of some of history's most profound thinkers on the subject of wealth and personal development, readers are invited into a grand conversation spanning centuries. The collection juxtaposes the ancient wisdom of Marcus Aurelius and Lao Tzu with the modern insights of thinkers like Thorstein Veblen and Kahlil Gibran, highlighting the diversity and evolution of thought surrounding prosperity and success. The inclusion of practical guides by figures such as Benjamin Franklin and P.T. Barnum alongside the philosophical musings of Niccolò Machiavelli and James Allen creates a rich tapestry of literary styles, from the pragmatic to the existential, all unified by the quest for understanding the principles of wealth generation and personal achievement. The authors and editors, coming from various historical and cultural backgrounds, contribute a mosaic of viewpoints that reflect their individual eras' socioeconomic challenges and intellectual currents. From the enlightenment ideals of Franklin to the transcendental insights of Gibran, and the self-help proto-psychology of Émile Coué, this anthology aligns with numerous movements in human thought. The diversity of these voices offers a comprehensive exploration into the philosophies of prosperity, each adding nuance and depth to the collective understanding of what it means to succeed and flourish. 'The Science of Prosperity' is an essential read for anyone interested in the intellectual pursuit of wealth and personal development. By bringing together such a wide array of perspectives, the collection offers a unique opportunity to engage with the thoughts and wisdom of some of the greatest minds on prosperity. It challenges readers to reflect on the multifaceted nature of success, encouraging a deeper appreciation for the intricate interplay of psychological, philosophical, and practical dimensions of achieving personal prosperity. Whether you are a student of history, philosophy, or economics, this anthology promises to enrich your understanding and inspire your journey toward personal excellence.

    High Intensity Exercise: The Ultimate Guide to HIIT Workouts. Learn The Science of HIIT and How It Can Help Optimize Performance and Lose FatYou have probably heard of the acronym HIIT. HIIT stands for ‘High-Intensity Interval Training’. In this type of exercise, you alternate between bursts of intense exertion (such as sprinting) and periods of relative low-intensity exercise (like jogging or power walking). This way, you are switching from your anaerobic energy system to your aerobic system and back; switching between burning energy stored in your blood and muscles and energy stored as fat. But what makes this so effective is what happens after the anaerobic training. When you exert yourself maximally by sprinting or exercising otherwise at 100%, you deplete any energy that might have been available from sources other than fat. This then means that following that, your body can only burn fat for energy – there is no other option remaining. This audiobook will teach you everything you need to learn about HIIT. Aside from the basics, how it works, and its benefits, you will also learn advanced techniques like cardio acceleration, fartlek training,  speed drills, concurrent training, metcon, tabata, finishers, and more. This audiobook will discuss the following topics:Cardio Training, Then and Now Benefits of HIITScience of HIIT, Understanding Your Body So You Can Get More Out of ItHow to Start HIIT Training With RunningHow to Build Up a Basic Level of FitnessTips for Better HIIT ResultsAdvanced HIIT Protocols – Tabata, MetCon, and Cardio AccelerationAdd HIIT to a Healthy LifestyleAnd many more!HIIT has been transforming the lives of people all around the world and if you want to achieve one of those ‘cover model physiques’  then this is probably just what you’re looking for.
