Summary

When he set out on his road to rebellion, Michael Ford only wanted to keep the foxes out of Hannon's Glen. But before he was done, he found himself exchanging rifle fire with the British army, with an unlikely ally in the form of Annabel Love, the squire's daughter. Michael's War tracks the course of revolution and civil war that rended Ireland from 1916 to 1923.

 
It ends with its hero escaping to America--but what sweetheart will he ask to join him in the new world? Michael's War is a conflicted love story set during the Irish rebellion and civil war, early in the 20th century.

    This book summary is created for individuals who want to flesh out the essential contents but are too busy to go through the entire book. This book is not intended to replace the original book. 
    The 48 Laws of Power is the ultimate guide for anyone would like to gain, observe, or thwart any form of domination by the forces of power in the world. 
    Robert Greene’s powerful book on this intriguing subject is a groundbreaking work of literature.  Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, it synthesizes the thoughts of some of  history’s most influential thinkers such as Machiavelli, Sun-tzu, Carl von Clausewitz and others. In this book, one will see how prudence, cunning, stealth and subtlety, and a complete lack of mercy or compassion for one’s enemies come into play with humanity’s power dynamic.  
    Rich in the history of power politics and warfare spanning three millennia, Greene’s 48 Laws of Power is relevant even in today's world, particularly for anyone who seeks to gain, observe, or protect themselves from being controlled by the forces of power in the world.

    This revised edition of Mike Chappell's original Men-at-Arms 138 represents nearly 20 years' new research. It covers the saddlery, horse furniture, and personal equipment of the British horsed cavalryman from the early stages of the Napoleonic Wars until the final disappearance of the mounted arm during World War II. Such details are essential for an understanding of how cavalry fought in the 19th and early 20th centuries, since the design of equipment was intimately connected with cavalry tactics in any particular period. Students of campaign history, and particularly modellers, will find here a mass of specific information, illustrated with photographs, diagrams, drawings and full colour plates.

We laugh when watching The Office and yet we feel it is true. We see everything from leaders leaving a legacy of long lasting emotional scars to many leaders being average at best. A conscious leader first decides to be one, then takes consistent steps to live it and become an example for others to follow. Conscious Leadership in Action provides a compelling guide to start and continue on this path. It will offer you many easy to use tools and exercises to help with your personal change to being a conscious leader in your daily life and transforming organizations.

    "Zestier and more colloquial than most translations . . . Letts' main achievement here is to make Chekhov more emotional, accessible and active."—Chicago Tribune 
    "I've seen over a dozen Three Sisters, but never has the final scene . . . registered so hard. It's the cumulative effect of . . . searing truth-telling—from Letts, who knows family dysfunction as only the author of August: Osage County can, and Chekhov, the good doctor who diagnoses all our weaknesses that are so strong."—Chicago Theater Beat 
    When the champion of modern family drama takes on the genre's patriarch, the result is an energetic and vitalizing adaptation of one of Anton Chekhov's most beloved plays. A cruder, gruffer outline of the plight of the wistful Prozorov sisters serves to emphasize the anguish of their Chekhovian stagnation. This latest work from Letts envisions the revered classic through a fresh lens that revives the passionate characters and redoubles the tragic effect of their stunted dreams.  
    Tracy Letts was awarded the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play for August: Osage County. His other plays include Superior Donars; Pulitzer Prize-finalist Man from Nebraska; Killer Joe, which was adapted into a critically acclaimed film; and Bug, which has played in New York, Chicago and London and was adapted into a film. Letts garnered a Tony Award for his performance in the Broadway revival of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
