After every disaster, someone has something to hide.... A few minutes before midnight on April 14, 1912, the "unsinkable" RMS Titanic, on her maiden voyage to New York, struck an iceberg. Less than three hours later she lay at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. While the world has remained fascinated by the tragedy, the most amazing drama of those fateful hours was not played out aboard the doomed liner. It took place on the decks of two other ships, one 58 miles distant from the sinking Titanic, the other barely 10 miles away. The masters of the steamships Carpathia and Californian, Captain Arthur Rostron and Captain Stanley Lord, were informed within minutes of each other that their vessels had picked up the distress signals of a sinking ship. Their actions in the hours and days that followed would become the stuff of legend, as one would choose to take his ship into dangerous waters to answer the call for help, while the other would decide that the hazard to himself and his command was too great to risk responding. After years of research, Daniel Allen Butler now tells this incredible story, moving from ship to ship on the icy waters of the North Atlantic - in real time - to recount how hundreds of people could have been rescued, but in the end only a few outside of the meager lifeboats were saved. He then looks alike at the U.S. Senate investigation in Washington, and ultimately the British Board of Trade inquiry in London, where the actions of each captain are probed, questioned, and judged, until the truth of what actually happened aboard the Titanic, the Carpathia and the Californian is revealed. Daniel Allen Butler, a maritime and military historian, is the best-selling author of "Unsinkable": The Full Story of RMS Titanic, Distant Victory: The Battle of Jutland and the Allied Triumph in the First World War, and The First Jihad: The Battle for Khartoum and the Da 1.

The Age of Louis XIV , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 260min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The seventeenth century was one of the most fascinating and seminal periods in European history, particularly with regard to France. For it was here in France that the fruits of the earlier Renaissance were to be most brilliantly realized. Although the path of "greatness" for Louis XIV was prepared for him by men like Richelieu, Mazarin, Colbert, Turenne, and Louvois, it was during his reign that French preeminence in all facets of civilization emerged. In diplomacy, military science, art, architecture, literature, fashion, music, gastronomy, philosophy, physics, mathematics, engineering, and many other fields of endeavor, France stood at the pinnacle of human achievement. She was to remain there until the time of Napoleon. How did this hegemony come about? Laurence Bradford Packard, an eminent historian and scholar, traces the origins of absolute monarchy and tells us how the political evolution of inherited kingship came to be what it was by the time of Louis XIV. He explains the marvelous diplomatic machinery backed by military might that made France the most feared nation in Europe for almost 200 years. And he discusses the various intellectual controversies of the day which were to produce some of the greatest minds in Europe. There has never been a period which produced so many masters of language: Voltaire, Moliere, Racine, Corneille, Pascal, Bayle, Rochefoucauld, La Fontaine, Bossuet, and many others. And of course, there were Milton, Hobbes, and Locke in England. Packard gives them all their due and goes on to explore the other arts, as well. The book ends with an appraisal of the amazing progress Europeans, and especially the French, made in the scientific fields. The names are legendary: Descartes, Newton, Boyle, Leeuwenhoek, Leibnitz, and others. It was a titanic period, and hovering above them all was the man who symbolized the power and majesty of the absolute monarchy...Louix XIV. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charlton Griffin.

The Complete Sermons of C. H. Spurgeon, Book 1 ...
66,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The story of Charles Haddon Spurgeon's life is nothing less than titanic. Within 2 years and 6 months of accepting the pastorate of the New Park Street Chapel as a boy of 19, the Sunday service grew from 242 to over 7,000 in attendance. What can account for the meteoric rise in popularity? Why did so many wish to hear his sermons? It is the same reason why one ought to study the sermons of Spurgeon to this day: in a famished land of moralism, he preached the bread of Jesus Christ. Containing the first three volumes of the sixty-three volumes published from the Metropolitan Tabernacle pulpit, this book holds 164 sermons, 'as plump as a partridge, and as full of meat as an egg.' David A. Attebury is currently pursuing a Masters of Divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

In 'How To Be A Billionaire' erfahren Sie, wie sich manche Leute in einem ganz bestimmten Bereich menschlichen Strebens hervorgetan haben, nämlich im Streben nach Geld. Hier geht es nicht um das halbe Prozent der amerikanerikanischen Bevölkerung, das über einen Kapitalwert von einer Million Dollar verfügt. Hier geht es um Amerikaner, die 1.000 bis 40.000 Millionen Dollar ihr eigen nennen. In diesem Buch wird zum ersten Mal diese massive Anhäufung von privatem Vermögen ausführlich untersucht. Hierbei stützt sich Fridson verstärkt auf Biographien und journalistische Reportagen, die die Findigkeit, den Elan und die Rücksichtslosigkeit dokumentieren, auf die sich diese Vermögen gründen. Er enthüllt die wichtigsten Taktiken, Prinzipien und Strategien, die die Reichen superreich gemacht haben, wie z. B: 'Verstosse gegen die Regeln', 'Nachahmung ist besser als Innovation', 'Beherrsche den Markt', 'Investiere in politischen Einfluss' und 'Übertrumpfe die Konkurrenz'. Erläutert wird das gesamte Repertoire, angefangen bei Verhandlungstechniken über Tipps für den besten Deal bis hin zur Wahl der Branche und zum Börsengang des Unternehmens. Eine unverzichtbare Lektüre für jeden, der (erfolg-)reicher werden will. 'A truly enlightening work filled with fundamental strategies that have worked for others.Martin Fridson documents the essential principles inherent in every billionaire s success.' -Gordon Bethune Chairman of the Board and CEO Continental Airlines Self-made billionaires all have one thing in common: they excel at making money. But hard work, thrift, and focus are only part of the story-you hold the rest of it in your hands.

Paul Getty, and Kirk Kerkorian, How to Be a Billionaire will show you principles that can increase your wealth and business acumen to the mogul level. How to Be a Billionaire looks at the careers, the methods, and the minds of self-made billionaires to distill the common keys to titanic accumulations of wealth. Each chapter explores a specific strategy and brings it to life through extended profiles of past and present masters of the art of making money. Do you think innovation is the best way to prosper in business? Sam Walton, founder of the Wal-Mart retail chain, would tell you otherwise. The key to Walton s success was supreme devotion to copying the methods of other successful discounters. What could be less complicated than buying low and selling high? But the ascent of Warren Buffett, John Kluge, and Laurence Tisch to billionaire status depended on much more than an eye for good bargains. And if you re looking to thrive by outmanaging the competition, look no further than Richard Branson. When the founder of Virgin Atlantic needed to reduce his staff by 400 people, 600 volunteered to take off a few months on sabbatical.

As a result of his exhaustive research, Martin Fridson is able to explain the wealth-creation process from a unique perspective.

Fischer vs. Spassky The World Chess Championship Match 1972 The chess match of the century has finally taken place and chess masters throughout the world have already agreed that s6me of the games are among the greatest that have ever been played. Numerous books will be published over the next few years in which these games will be analyzed, but there are several features that will make this book stand apart from all the others: The author, Svetozar Gligoric, is one of the greatest grandmasters in the world and has played both Fischer and Spassky.

Although the games were not allowed to be televised. this book is the closest one can come to experiencing a live telecast of the titanic confrontation, with Gligoric, journalist and great master, at one's elbow, every moment.
