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.

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.

From the best-selling author of The Piano Tuner comes Daniel Mason´s The Winter Soldier, a story of love and medicine through the devastation of the First World War. Vienna, 1914. Lucius is a 22-year-old medical student when World War One explodes across Europe. Enraptured by romantic tales of battlefield surgery, he enlists, expecting a position at a well-organised field hospital. But when he arrives at a commandeered church tucked away high in a remote valley of the Carpathian Mountains, he finds a freezing outpost ravaged by typhus. The other doctors have fled, and only a single mysterious nurse named Sister Margarete remains. But Lucius has never lifted a surgeon’s scalpel. And as the war rages across the winter landscape, he finds himself falling in love with the woman from whom he must learn a brutal, makeshift medicine. Then one day, an unconscious soldier is brought in from the snow, his uniform stuffed with strange drawings. He seems beyond rescue, until Lucius makes a fateful decision that will change the lives of doctor, patient and nurse forever. From the gilded ballrooms of Imperial Vienna to the frozen forests of the Eastern Front; from hardscrabble operating rooms to battlefields thundering with Cossack cavalry, The Winter Soldier is the story of war and medicine, of family, of finding love in the sweeping tides of history and, finally, of the mistakes we make and the precious opportunities to atone. 1.

John Puller is a former war hero and now the best military investigator in the U.S. Army’s Criminal Investigative Division. He is a loner with few possessions by preference, but he has an indomitable spirit and an unstoppable determination for finding the truth. His father was the most decorated U.S. Marine in history, but now resides in a nursing home far from his battlefield glory. Puller’s older brother, also a military vet, is serving a life sentence in Leavenworth Penitentiary. Puller is called out to a remote, rural area far from any military outpost to investigate into the brutal murder of a family in their home. The dead husband was in the army and the wife worked for a Pentagon contractor. The local homicide detective, a woman with personal demons of her own, clashes with Puller over the investigation. What neither of them knows is what is waiting for them across the street from the murdered family’s home. It is something that will turn an already complicated case on its head. As Puller digs through deception after red herring, he realizes that absolutely nothing, and nobody, he’s so far seen in this small town, are what they seem. He is truly one man against an overwhelming force. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ron McLarty, Orlagh Cassidy. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/macm/000582/bk_macm_000582_sample.mp3.

For more than two thousand years, The Art of War has stood as a cornerstone of Chinese culture, a lucid epigrammatic text that reveals as much about human psychology, politics, and economics as it does about battlefield strategy. The influence of Sun-Tzu´s text has grown tremendously in the West in recent years, with military leaders, politicians, and corporate executives alike finding valuable insight in these ancient words. In this crisp, accessible new translation, eminent scholar John Minford brings this seminal work to life, presenting the core text in two formats, first the unadorned 13 chapters of the original work by Sun-Tzu followed by the same text with extensive running commentary by classical Chinese scholars as well as Minford himself. The result is an opportunity for Western readers to experience Sun-Tzu´s work in all its intensity as it applies to many aspects of our lives. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lorna Raver, Ray Porter.
