When Emma Quinn gets a call in her Manhattan apartment—your grandmother, out walking her dog, found dead in the snow—she has no reason to suspect foul play. A history professor at Columbia and the sole heir to the Quinn fortune, she heads down to Delaware, where her grandmother’s death has triggered a series of unsettling events—a break-in at the estate, an unexpected visit from the CIA and the discovery of a disturbing collection of news clippings in an upstairs study—about hijackings, bombings and acts of terror. Back in Manhattan, Emma is being followed by a mysterious stranger.
Are you sick and tired of being unhealthy? Have you tried endless other solutions but nothing seems to work for more than a few weeks? Do you finally want to say goodbye to fad diets and discover something which works for you? If so, then you’ve come to the right place.
You see, feeling incredible every day doesn’t have to be difficult even if you’ve tried diets and exercise. In fact, it’s easier than you think. A report published by Harvard demonstrated that intermittent fasting increases lifespan and improves tolerance to metabolic stressors.
While another study produced by neuroscientists at John Hopkins School of Medicine stated that intermittent fasting could help to prevent neurodegenerative diseases similar to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. These studies, among others, help validate intermittent fasting as a safe and effective way that you can achieve a healthful and balanced life without sacrificing your lifestyle, time, and money.

Good Strategy/Bad Strategy clarifies the muddled thinking underlying too many strategies and provides a clear way to create and implement a powerful action-oriented strategy for the real world.
Developing and implementing a strategy is the central task of a leader. A good strategy is a specific and coherent response to—and approach for—overcoming the obstacles to progress. A good strategy works by harnessing and applying power where it will have the greatest effect. Yet, Rumelt shows that there has been a growing and unfortunate tendency to equate Mom-and-apple-pie values, fluffy packages of buzzwords, motivational slogans, and financial goals with “strategy.”
Fearless takes you deep into SEAL Team SIX, straight to the heart of one of its most legendary operators.
When Navy SEAL Adam Brown woke up on March 17, 2010, he didn’t know he would die that night in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan—but he was ready: In a letter to his children, not meant to be seen unless the worst happened, he wrote, “I’m not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me.”
Long before Adam Brown became a member of the elite SEAL Team SIX—the counterterrorism unit that took down Osama bin Laden—he was a fun-loving country boy from Hot Springs, Arkansas, whose greatest goal had been to wear his high school’s football jersey. An undersized daredevil, prone to jumping off roofs into trees and off bridges into lakes, Adam was a kid who broke his own bones but would never break a promise to his parents.
