Statistics shows that Americans suffer more when it comes to anxiety, depression, and stress-related illnesses. Thankfully, there’s a practical prescription for dealing with them. When Anxiety Creeps In, the most recent book from New York Times bestselling-author David Keller, provides a road map for battling with and healing from anxiety and any form of worry. Do the challenges and chaos of life keep you up at night? Is fear a constant companion? Do you need calm in the midst of this chaotic world? Do you find it difficult to activate your faith? If the answer is yes, you are not alone. According to one research program, anxiety-related issues are the No. 1 mental health problem among women and are second only to alcohol and drug abuse among men. The use of sedative drugs is on the rise as well. Even students are not left out of this problem. One psychologist reports that the average high school kid today has the same level of anxiety as the average psychiatric patient. The news about anxiety is enough to make us anxious. David Keller knows what it feels like to be overwhelmed by worries and fear of the unknown, which is why he is dedicated to helping millions take back control of their minds, which have become battlefields of anxiety, fear, and worries. But from years of living in anxiety, he discovered that anxiety or worry has never solved any problem; Rather, it compounds it. He has penned down his secret to living an anxiety-free life for more than 10 years in this book. The Bible says, ´´In every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.´´ Keller guides listeners through scripture passages and explains the key concepts of knowing what to do when your world is shaking, asking for God´s help, leaving our concerns, and meditating.

In The Undoing Project, Lewis brings his narrative gift to the fascinating collaboration between Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky, whose Nobel Prize-winning theory of the mind altered our perception of reality. Kahneman and Tversky showed the ways in which the human mind errs, systematically, when forced to make judgments about uncertain situations. By undoing our assumptions about the decision-making process, Kahneman and Tversky´s breathtaking work created the field of behavioural economics, advanced evidence-based medicine, led to a new approach to government regulation, and made possible much of Lewis´s own writing on topics from business to baseball. The characters at the centre of this story have the dramatic complexity of great literary figures, heroes both in the university and on the battlefield. Their breakthrough ideas were deeply linked to their extraordinary life experiences, and their findings might well have permanently changed mankind´s view of its own mind.

Almost as soon as the last shot was fired in the Battle of the Little Bighorn, the battlefield became an archaeological site. For many years afterward, as fascination with the famed 1876 fight intensified, visitors to the area scavenged the many relics left behind. It took decades, however, before researchers began to tease information from the battle´s debris - and the new field of battlefield archaeology began to emerge. In Uncovering History, renowned archaeologist Douglas D. Scott offers a comprehensive account of investigations at the Little Bighorn, from the earliest collecting efforts to early-twentieth-century findings. Scott describes how detailed analysis of specific detritus at the Little Bighorn - such as cartridge cases, fragments of camping equipment and clothing, and skeletal remains - have allowed researchers to reconstruct and reinterpret the history of the conflict. Scott expands our understanding of the battle, its protagonists, and the enduring legacy of the battlefield as a national memorial. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gary Roelofs.

The 13 chapters of The Art of War, each devoted to one aspect of warfare, were compiled by the high-ranking Chinese military general, strategist, and philosopher Sun-Tzu. In spite of its battlefield specificity, The Art of War has found new life in the modern age, with leaders in fields as wide and far-reaching as world politics, human psychology, and corporate strategy finding valuable insight in its timeworn words. Aidan Gillen - who has learned a thing or two about strategy through his roles as skilled manipulator Petyr ´´Littlefinger´´ Baelish (Game of Thrones) and ambitious politician Tommy Carcetti (The Wire) - brilliantly performs this ancient classic. His experience in portraying insightful and, at times, cunning characters makes him a natural fit for this ancient collection of battlefield epigrams whose influence has grown tremendously in the modern world. 1.
