Summary

The August Offensive was born out of the failures of the Gallipoli landings and the subsequent battles of late spring and early summer 1915. General Sir Ian Hamilton, Commander-in-Chief of the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force, chose to play all his remaining cards in this daring and ingenious gamble that he hoped would finally turn the tide in the allies favour and bring his army up onto the heights overlooking the elusive Dardanelles. However the plan's same ingenuity became its eventual undoing. It required complex manoeuvring in tortuous terrain; whilst many of the attacking soldiers were already weakened by the hardships of four months of enduring very poor conditions on the Peninsula. What played out was heartbreakingly tragic; command failed the bravery and sacrifice of the fighting soldier. This Anzac offensive, fought by a combined force of British, Australian, New Zealand and Indian troops, made infamous places such as Lone Pine, The Nek, Sari Bair, Chunuk Bair, Hill Q, The Farm, Hill 971 and Hill 60. Although tantalisingly close to success, the offensive fell short of its objectives and the attack was ground down to a stalemate - not least the consequence of the inspiring leadership of Mustafa Kemal. Hamilton's gamble had failed. This is the story, told using a rich mix of letters, diaries, photographs and maps, of Gallipoli's last battles; the forlorn hope for a decisive victory.As featured in the West Sussex County Times and All About Horsham Magazine.

    The following topics are included in this 2-book combo: 
      
      
    Book 1: There is a loop in life: We seek a reward, and we get rewarded with dopamine. This dopamine motivates us to seek more of it, and the cycle repeats itself. Such cycles can either be the basis of success and true fulfillment in life, or it can become a destructive pattern that leads someone to becoming dependent on fast fixes that turn out to be uncontrollable. 
      
    In today’s book, we’ll discuss what those fluctuating levels of dopamine do to our brains, which effect they can have on migraines, motivation, obesity, drug addiction, or food addictions. We will also briefly touch on what dopamine fasting is and what you can do to exercise more control over your appetites and live a balanced, satisfactory life. 
      
      
      
      
    Book 2: Dopamine makes us human. It has been proven over and over again that it manifests itself differently in animals. It has been researched and been found identical to human traits and our motivation to do anything in life, our creativity, and our problem-solving skills. 
      
    Dopamine is also a drug, a neurotransmitter our brains release and cause us to become dependent on substances, porn, attention, entertainment, or other pleasurable things in life. 
      
    In this guide, we will go over some of the great opportunities and dangers of dopamine. We will discuss the difference between the left and right brain, and the most common differences between dopamine in the female and male brain. Last but not least, we will share some thoughts about achieving goals and its relationship to dopamine triggers. 
      
    All of these topics can give you greater insight in your own psyche as well as others. Please take a look inside or listen to the audio version of the book.

    What happens when someone you love suddenly cliff-dives into mental illness? And then you discover that there may be no return?
    		 
    This experimental memoir reflects on the author’s intimate and complicated relationship with a woman diagnosed with suicidal depression, and the startling and chaotic new world of locked wards, heavy medications, and electroconvulsive therapy that follows.
    		 
    Interweaving personal essays, fragmented prose, poetry, stream-of-consciousness, and text exchanges, this collage-style book invites the reader into the mysterious world of a treatment-resistant condition and illuminates the urgency and intimacy of caring for someone with an ultimately fatal mental illness. Running through the center of the narrative is the relationship between two people whose fierce love for each other is both the tie that binds and the anchor that drowns.
    		 
    Lifeline is a testament to the importance of hard conversations, humor, and dignity in the face of a courageous battle for sanity; an interrogation of the flaws in the medical system; a debate on when life stops being worth living; and a conversation and reflection on what it means to love someone enough to go on without them.

    Intelligence is more than IQ. Goleman demonstrates how our view of human intelligence is far too narrow and does not take into consideration what he calls “emotional intelligence.” This dialogue provides solid advice about handling the pitfalls of emotionality and expands our understanding of how we learn.

    So much to read, so little time? This brief overview of Brave New World tells you what you need to know—before or after you read Aldous Huxley’s book.   Crafted and edited with care, Worth Books set the standard for quality and give you the tools you need to be a well-informed reader.   This short summary and analysis of Brave New World includes: Historical contextChapter-by-chapter overviewsProfiles of the main charactersThemes and symbolsImportant quotesFascinating triviaGlossary of termsSupporting material to enhance your understanding of the original workAbout Brave New World by Aldous Huxley:   Aldous Huxley’s visionary Brave New World is one of the world’s greatest dystopian novels. In a society built on conformity, stability, and pervasive “happiness,” individuals are not born, but manufactured into one of five distinct castes—from dull-witted laborers to leaders and thinkers. Even as embryos, people are conditioned and programmed not only to accept, but to enjoy their predestined lives—or is it their slavery?   But what happens when a savage—a man born from an actual mother—is introduced into this perfectly ordered society?  Brave New World is a masterpiece of literary satire, as appropriate today, in our world of endless, shallow distractions and ubiquitous mass media, as it was when it was first published in 1932.   The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of fiction.
