Prior to stepping onto the battlefield with a Narcissist, it is imperative to know their playbook both forwards and backwards. The behavior of individuals with Narcissistic Personality Disorder generally defies logic but sadly, their tactics in the Family Court System often fool Judges, Commissioners, Attorneys, Minor´s Counsel, Social Workers, Therapists, and even trained Evaluators. Narcissists are the masters of manipulation and projection and are known to launch stealth assaults that will leave their victims in an utter state of confusion and desperation. Victims are often left shattered and without a voice because they feel that no one could possibly believe or understand what they are silently enduring. Author Tina Swithin understands what it´s like to divorce a narcissist. Tina spent over four years on the battlefield of the Family Court System while acting as her own attorney in a desperate attempt to protect her two young daughters. While Tina´s first book, Divorcing a Narcissist: One Mom´s Battle details Tina´s personal journey and court battle, her new book offers solid advice and sanity-saving wisdom for transforming from victim to survivor. Education is power and Divorcing a Narcissist: Advice from the Battlefield is your personal guide and resource for navigating through high-conflict divorce. Receive advice for every stage of the battle from leaving the Narcissist and choosing an attorney to tactical moves and courtroom preparation. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chloe Lunn.

Former Army Ranger Kris Paronto, a survivor of the 2012 Benghazi siege that was subject of the book and movie 13 Hours, provides powerful motivational tools for surviving and thriving to bring discipline, motivation, success, and peace to listeners´ lives. Thousands of people have heard Kris ´´Tanto´´ Paronto speak about his experiences in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. But before he was a security contractor, Tanto was a US Army Ranger from Second Battalion 75th Ranger Regiment. Rangers are trained to lead by being pushed to their physical and mental limits so that they can perform against impossible odds in punishing situations. In The Ranger Way, Tanto shares stories from his training experiences that played a role in his team´s heroic response in Benghazi. Being a Ranger is, by design, not for everyone, but anyone can use the expectations and techniques of Ranger culture to achieve personal victory. In The Ranger Way, Tanto explains the importance of demanding excellence when you commit to improving your life. He shows you how to define your mission, set goals that are in alignment with your values, and develop a battle plan that will maximize your chances of success. You will learn why you should never quit and why that is different from never failing. Tanto uses his experiences in basic and Ranger training to explore how to deal with mistakes and disappointment like a leader, accept responsibility, and turn every obstacle into an opportunity for growth. You will learn why being of service to others and being willing to sacrifice will help you succeed and how the power of humility, strength, faith, and brotherhood will sustain you on the road to accomplishing your mission. 1.

Not all the cruelties, deprivations, and horrors of the Civil War took place on the battlefield. The women left behind must survive. With unflinching honesty and a survivor´s grace and humor, young Sarranda chronicles her life during the pre- and post-Civil War years in isolated western North Carolina´s Greene Valley. From childhood when her father leaves for California gold fields through a youthful marriage, motherhood, and the turbulent losses the war brings, she endures deprivation, hunger, emotional losses, and the lawlessness of marauding outliers with courage and determination.

In a time disrupted, a family fragmented, and a land almost destroyed, Sarranda reveals the strength, endurance, and spirit of the mountain woman and of all women who must make do during war and its aftermath. 1.

As the Warmaster´s campaign of galactic domination continues, his generals seek out fresh battlefields to conquer. After leaving the Crone World of Iydris behind, Perturabo strikes for Tallarn. A bitter, vengeful primarch, the lord of the Iron Warriors unleashes a deadly bombardment against the world, killing millions but entrenching the survivors. A brutal, all-consuming armoured conflict ensues, the greatest of the war and one that grinds down all combatants over more than a year of relentless battles. But Perturabo´s reasons for the attack are about more than unleashing punitive destruction against the Imperium - he has an entirely darker purpose in mind. 1. Language: English.

It´s 1911, and 21-year-old Evelyn Northey desperately wants to become a doctor. Her medico father forbids it, withholding the inheritance that would allow her to go to university. At the outbreak of World War I, Evelyn disobeys her father: she enlists as an army nurse bound for Egypt to care for the wounded from the disastrous Gallipoli campaign. Under the blazing desert sun and amid the chaos and trauma of tending to battlefield casualties, Evelyn develops feelings for Dr William Brent, a polio survivor who believes his disability makes him unfit to marry. For Evelyn, still pursuing her goal of studying medicine, a man has no place in her future. Their experience of war and its deadly legacies forces each of them to reassess their beliefs - but for two self-reliant people, relying on someone else for happiness may be the hardest challenge of all. The Desert Nurse shows not only the aftermath of Gallipoli but also a lesser known part of the war: what happened in Egypt, the Sinai and Palestine after the Gallipoli diggers went to France. Pamela Hart, the beloved best-selling Australian author of The War Bride, tells the heart-wrenching story of four years that changed the world - and these two extraordinary people - forever. Includes free chapters of the best-selling A Letter from Italy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anthea Greco. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/haau/000168/bk_haau_000168_sample.mp3.

I am the translator who has taken journalists into dangerous Darfur. It is my intention now to take you there in this book, if you have the courage to come with me. The young life of Daoud Hari - his friends call him David - has been one of bravery and mesmerizing adventure. He is a living witness to the brutal genocide under way in Darfur. The Translator is a suspenseful, harrowing, and deeply moving memoir of how one person has made a difference in the world - an on-the-ground account of one of the biggest stories of our time. Using his high-school knowledge of languages as his weapon - while others around him were taking up arms - Daoud Hari has helped inform the world about Darfur. Hari, a Zaghawa tribesman, grew up in a village in the Darfur region of Sudan. As a child he saw colorful weddings, raced his camels across the desert, and played games in the moonlight after his work was done. In 2003, this traditional life was shattered when helicopter gunships appeared over Darfur´s villages, followed by Sudanese-government-backed militia groups attacking on horseback, raping and murdering citizens, and burning villages. Though Hari´s village was attacked and destroyed, his family decimated and dispersed, he escaped. Roaming the battlefield deserts on camels, he and a group of his friends helped survivors find food, water, and the way to safety. When international aid groups and reporters arrived, Hari offered his services as a translator and guide. In doing so, he risked his life again and again, for the government of Sudan had outlawed journalists in the region, and death was the punishment for those who aided the ´´foreign spies´´. And then, inevitably, his luck ran out and he was captured. The Translator tells the remarkable story of a man who came face-to-face with genocide time and again, risking his own life to fight injustice and save his people. 1. Language: English.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BUZZFEED ? A companion novel inspired by Star Wars: Battlefront, this action-packed adventure follows a squad of soldiers caught in the trenches of the ultimate galactic war between good and evil. The bravest soldiers. The toughest warriors. The ultimate survivors. Among the stars and across the vast expanses of space, the Galactic Civil War rages. On the battlefields of multiple worlds in the Mid Rim, legions of ruthless stormtroopers-bent on crushing resistance to the Empire wherever it arises-are waging close and brutal combat against an armada of freedom fighters. In the streets and alleys of ravaged cities, the front-line forces of the Rebel Alliance are taking the fight to the enemy, pushing deeper into Imperial territory and grappling with the savage flesh-and-blood realities of war on the ground. Leading the charge are the soldiers-men and women, human and nonhuman-of the Sixty-First Mobile Infantry, better known as Twilight Company. Hard-bitten, war-weary, and ferociously loyal to one another, the members of this renegade outfit doggedly survive where others perish, and defiance is their most powerful weapon against the deadliest odds. When orders come down for the rebels to fall back in the face of superior opposition numbers and firepower, Twilight reluctantly complies. Then an unlikely ally radically changes the strategic equation-and gives the Alliance´s hardest-fighting warriors a crucial chance to turn retreat into resurgence. Orders or not, alone and outgunned but unbowed, Twilight Company locks, loads, and prepares to make its boldest maneuver-trading down-and-dirty battle in the trenches for a game-changing strike at the ultimate target: the very heart of the Empire´s military machine.
