Never Split the Difference: Negotiating as if Your Life Depended on It
Never Split the Difference: Negotiating as if Your Life Depended on It
My guess is around 70% of my purchases are made on Amazon: it's a lot of stuff, both for home and for my company. This is the first item (across all categories) that I've written a review for. I'm compelled because this book has changed my life, and I suspect it can change yours — What do you have to lose by reading it?

I thought I’d learned what I needed to know about negotiation. I went to a prestigious business school and took their negotiation class, learning all about Getting Yes, BATNA, and other fancy acronyms. I’d also had to bargain my share in both work and personal life. Yet, I felt like the tools I’d been given were meant for some alternate reality where people are totally dispassionate, rational robots, doing math in their heads to get to logical outcomes. The negotiations I’d been in with were instead with passionate, irrational (including myself) humans, sometimes getting angry or sad, often making decisions that didn’t “make any sense” (to me). I was pretty sure the negotiation outcomes we were getting to were subpar, both for me and for them: a lot of splitting the difference, mostly to make the negotiations — which felt uncomfortable for all parties — stop.

Note, when I mean “negotiation”, I’m speaking pretty broadly: from “negotiating" with my fiancée on who should walk the dog tonight, to negotiating with an employee on why this feature needed to be built urgently, to negotiating with an angry customer who’d called me angry about something, to negotiating with my parents on wedding plans, the list goes on. Each negotiation tougher and more emotional than the next, yet with tools that told me emotions didn’t matter. Huh?

I don’t remember how I came across Never Split the Difference, but man, am I glad I did. The book exposed me to a whole different way of negotiating, questioning the rational toolkit I’d been given in business school and replacing it with a more human set of tools. This set based on psychology and understanding of normal human emotions. It builds on empathy and active listening skills, layers on ways to label emotions and ask open-ended calibrated questions. It includes polite ways to say “no” without offending the other party, and many more. Most importantly it builds a framework that lets you deeply understand what the other party needs, wants, and desires, and work with them to achieve an outcome where you get your goals met — without ever “splitting the difference” again.

And it has worked wonders. Since reading this book, I have:
- Forged a better relationship with my fiancée by actively listening to her before jointly finding solutions
- Negotiated successful resolutions to emotionally charged topics with parents and friends
- Brought angry customers — who felt we had failed them — back from the brink to trusting us again
- Forged a better relationship with my business partners by understanding how they value time, silence, relationships, surprises, etc…
- Gotten discounts on things that I didn’t think could be discounted, just by using my name
- Gotten to the front of the waiting line at busy restaurants
- Said no to bad deals, because no deal is better than a bad one
- the list goes on.

I warn you that this book is the start of a rabbit hole that you might want to keep digging down. I’ve recommended this book to anyone who will listen, personally bought it 29 times as a gift for friends & coworkers alike, taken an online class (taught by the author’s son, a brilliant negotiator in his own right), etc...

Negotiation, in the broadest sense as described above, is something I want to become an expert in, because I now understand that every conversation is a negotiation. This is likely the most useful skill you can learn and apply.

It all started with this book. Are you too busy to read it?

Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques: A Contemporary Guide to the Ancient Investment Techniques of the Far East, Second Edition
I'm a self-taught trader that's been trading for about 3 yrs now. Went through a few dvd's of the "guru's" out there, but I still had so many unanswered questions. For me, I loved everything about this book. It was easily read and answered all my questions, and then some, about the different patterns. Right now, I'm more of a technical trader and this book was exactly what I was looking for. I got a used first edition because of the neg comments about the book construction of the 2nd. My win to loss is not ideal right now, but after reading and studying I feel more confident. I made reference cards that I laminated to help memorize the different patterns. The patterns are not named the same as western patterns. I would find the western name for the patterns if you plan on screening patterns. That's the only thing I can see as a neg. This book was a great buy and addition to my library of books. I highly recommend to anyone trying to find their edge. Forgive me for any mistakes in my comments, but just wanted to give some feedback. I wish you all the best and good luck on your journey. Cheers!
I'm Feeling Lucky: The Confessions of Google Employee Number 59
I'm Feeling Lucky: The Confessions of Google Employee Number 59
This isn't just some factual account of events in Google's history. After all, Doug has been known as "the voice of Google" given his involvement in most of Google's user interactions and communications. Thus the book is written in that particular voice - a narrative that is able to address even the most technical concerns related while still making it approachable to the average user. After all, Doug is a marketing guy at heart and never claimed to be an engineer. Some have found the language to be too simplistic at times, but I found it vibrant and refreshing in tone and thus a pleasure to read even when discussing the more stressful situations Doug had to deal with.

Thus the book flows along two lines. On the one hand, it provides a striking inside look at Google's early history including milestone events such as their first search deal with AOL and the development of AdWords. But at the same time it's really just the tale of a marketing guy trying to redefine the job based on the technically-driven and data-obsessed engineers that were fundamental to growing Google to the company that it is today.

The book has certainly given me a lot to think about in terms of both my own marketing job and Google as a company. While Doug makes sure to tell all sides of the story and not just the warm and fuzzy stuff, he does seem to have a particular slant here - one last message as Google's voice that he has to deliver. If anything, this feels like Doug's last message to us users - an attempt to explain how Google operates at its core and thus presents a different view of the company given the big decisions it makes that get splashed all over the news. Google isn't quite the information monster and privacy villain that many present it to be. But it is moving solely to the beat of its own drum and its own concept of what they feel is in the best interests of the user.

At the same time, it's an amazing exploration of marketing and how the old concepts may not quite work in the increasingly product-aligned world that we live in. Branding goes beyond just thinking of the company as a whole but building images and ideas around individual product lines, especially in a tech world.
Real Live
Real Live
love this CD because its a mix of acoustic and rocking versions of some of Bobs classic songs and songs off Infidels. Backed by a small but excellent band that features former rolling stones guitarist Mick Taylor, blues breaker drummer Colin Allen on drums ex-Faces' keyboard player Ian McLagan and bassist Greg Sutton, Real Live kicks some rocking life into some Dylan tunes.
"Real Live" was the 1984 european tour that ended with a huge concert of 75,000 at wembley in the UK. ( You can see on utube videos of the wembley shows as well as others in germany and spain.)
It starts off with Highway 61 is played as a chuck berry style rocker and moves along nicely compared some of the plainer versions i've heard .
Maggies Farm starts of with great energetic shuffle drum riff and Taylor on slide guitar . This is is my favorite version ever of this song because Dylans vocals are great here and Taylor slide guitar riffs and fills are just So good ! Great energy.
"I and I" is haunting with the band playing in a more minor key, compared to the infidels which featured more of Knoflpers style guitar style. Boths versions are great though.
"Licence to kill" is done in a powerful dark mood with Taylor doing some beautifully dark extended solo's. Dylans voice is great here and Ian McLagan on keyboards give a bit of a reggae feel.
"It Ain't me Babe", has just Dylan on acoustic and you can heard by the crowd, its an audience favorite. His harmonica solo is not as good as earlier versions though and is a bit repetative.
Next is a great version of "Tangled up in blue" , Dylans vocals and guitar are very good. He changes the words a bit, but compared to other versions, this one is more energetic.
"Masters of War" is one of my favorites with its dark mood and Taylor's very melodic lead guitar. Its much better than the Infidels version.
"Ballad of a thin man" .. i usually skip this one..
"Girl from the North Country" is excellent. Just Dylan on acoustic. The live ambience make you think you are actually up in the north country.
"Tombstone Blues" was always the finally jam song on this tour where they brought Carlos Santana on stage to play with the band. (since he was the opening act). Its a great rocking version.
Of all the live concerts form 1980 on, this captures Bob with more of a rocking sound that any other i've heard since. I love this CD.
GUND Baby UGG Dinosaur Baby Stuffed Animal
GUND Baby UGG Dinosaur Baby Stuffed Animal
This Dino quickly became our grandson's favorite snuggle item. He always takes it to sleep with him. The neck is PERFECT for little hands to grasp. He even takes him for a ride in his walker and shows him the highlights of the house!!!
The Dino is well made, washable, perfectly sized and so amazingly cute.
I actually bought two so that he has one at his house and has one at my house. This is a perfect situation because he is often here and no one has to worry about transporting him. Yes, our Dino is a boy and his name is Darwin.
Return of Wolverine
Return of Wolverine
As a Wolverine fan going on 30+ years now, with decades of hit and miss story lines from the character and also Marvel itself, id say this particular story falls somewhere in the middle. the (real) Wolverine has been gone for a couple years now, and with the last few PC changes Marvel has made in the comics in recent years that was probably for the best. In his absence he's had a few fill in characters such as son Daken, "daughter" X-23, and even the world displaced older version Old man Logan. while these other as i refer to as "diet coke" versions of Wolverine have had various degrees of success, (Old man Logan is a personal favorite) Nothing beats the "Coke classic" of the original. This story sets out what it needs to do, return our beloved Logan to feast our eyes on shredding baddies and swooning the ladies, only the actual story here is mediocre at best. The build up to this arc feels a bit rushed and doesn't particularly have much depth that such an event like this could deliver. The art as well is inconsistent, as Mcnivens art is beautiful and detailed but the follow up artist on the next few parts is so below average that i would have felt cheated if the story were even a bit more meatier. This book is in no way terrible, but in no way amazing either. A great return to one of my favorite fictional characters ever, but not the grand epic he deserved.

My teenage son and his friends are into wacky boxer briefs. I love the design, however, I don't expect these to last long. They've been washed twice & there's already slight fading. They are thin and dollar store quality.
NEARKIN Mens Fleece Slim Cut Look 6 Button Hoodie Long Cardigan
NEARKIN Mens Fleece Slim Cut Look 6 Button Hoodie Long Cardigan
I'm a woman and have been on the hunt for a hoodie that is long enough to cover my butt and inner thighs with a few inches in length to spare. That's what led me to this jacket, which I knew was made for men.

hopefully this review can help women, since there aren't many reviews from women here.

This looked very promising. Based on reviews, I bought a size up than what I'd normally get.

i am 5'8, 190 pounds, size 12-14 Large normally. So I bought XL, one size up than my normal L. the XL jacket was clearly too big on me all over, immediately apparent, but I loved it - it was so comfy. Hood huge and dramatic. Color lovely. BUt i wanted a better fit so i ordered the Large.

The Large fit much better than the XL, but the lower buttons around hips and bottom of jacket were pulling a little so the "column" of buttons wasn't laying straight - I'd imagine this is bc the jacket is made for men, who typically have straighter hips than women do. So if you have curves, the strip in the middle where the buttons are may pull so the row of buttons may not align straight for you. If you have smaller hips than I do, this may be great. Have you ever worn a too-tight shirt with buttons on it, and it's like the buttons are pulling from each other ? that's what this was like for me, but not in the chest area (i'm 38C), it was in the hips and lower area.

So I give the jacket 5 stars bc it was lovely, long, comfy, not intended for women, and I am hoping to help other women out there. So now i'm returning the l and XL and feel guilty for all the amazon returns I've been having lately. I loved this and am sorry it didn't fit me right - if the button strip section had been maybe .5-1" wider, and tht section didn't pull, I would most DEFINITELY would have kept it. It covered my bum by several inches and has such a lovely red color and was so comfy when I tried it on.

if YOU are a woman and dont have large hips and/or bum, I'd say you don't need to order a size up and this may not pull in the buttons area for you - it's lovely.

Phil the Fiddler
Phil the Fiddler
This review is not for the cynics and others who hate America, (whether they live here or not): There are many of us who still believe in the 'American Dream'. Who see in America as a land of opportunity, where a person may make what he wants of himself. This is the reason for the success of movies like the Secret, and books like Think and Grow Rich. Haters of this concept don't believe in the philosophy of 'if it's to be; it's up to me' and personal growth- they believe in the 'it's not my responsibility to be successful, it's the governments, or a union, etc' to make things right. For those of us who DO believe in America and what it stands for, we need to relax from time to time, from our dedicated path to success. From time to time, I like to read a novel or two, to unwind, but there are so few are positive, uplifting, and compelling novels that also promote personal growth and success principles. So finding one or two is GREAT NEWS! However I have made a wonderful discover of a new and magnificently published selection of Horatio Alger books, so now we don't just have one or two, but many, many hours ahead of us to relax, recharge and at the same time instill in ourselves the success principles we all know and love!

Phil the Fiddler is one of the best Alger books: In this story Phil comes to America - like so many others. Not coming for handouts or the idea of living off the government, Phil a young orphan, tired of living worse than a slave, decides to take advantage of the opportunity America offers - he works hard fiddling but also goes to school to get an education. The example is as powerful today as it was then - Phil worked hard, and it paid off - but he did not forget who helped him along the way - and further - he helps others who deserve such help. Rich storytelling here - the life of living on the streets of New York and what it takes to get off those mean streets the plot sounds simple, but there were so many obstacles in his way and that is the point of the story! Lots of historical settings and 'bad guys' - you'll love this book. Phil succeeds by hard work and practicing lots of success principles, he ends up very successful - with a great ending ....very formula for Alger, I know, but it's a winning formula, and we want and do cheer for Phil and all the other Phil's who come to America and make something of the opportunity America offers!

This is also a wonderful book to give a young person, what a gift it would be to have this type of book so early in life! Great plot and a fantastic read!
Deep in the Jungle of Doom (Give Yourself Goosebumps #11)
Deep in the Jungle of Doom (Give Yourself Goosebumps #11)
Between my school library and the public library, there weren't that many GYG books available to me, but I remember my friend bought about twelve of them and I mooched them off of him every now and then to read (or just look at the pretty covers). Therefore, this book stuck out in my mind as one he definitely had. All that said, it was pretty great. I liked the jungle setting, which reminded me a lot of the island setting from the Tiki Island one. There were a lot of third parties in this book including Amazon Warrior Women, some big-game hunters, a jungle tribe, and a troll. The two storylines involve either turning into a fish-creature or getting lost and encountering all the above parties. A decent, if not terribly awesome, GYG book.

I have been a fan of Dean Koontz's work for a few years now and have been slightly disappointed by the past few books I read...Midnight changed it all around, though. Midnight capturedmy attention and kept me up most of the night reading. I loved it and this book alone has made me once again proud to say I'm a fan of Dean Koontz!
The Obsession
The Obsession
4.5*
Naomi Bowes’ life changed irrevocably when, at almost twelve years old, she found out the truth about her father. It was hot that summer and Naomi woke in the sticky heat of the night. As she knelt with her arms resting on the window sill out, gazing into the dark, she saw her father heading off into the woods. Wondering if he was going to the creek to cool off, Naomi decided to follow him. He wasn’t going to the creek and when he disappeared into an old root cellar Naomi thought maybe he hidden her birthday present down there. But she discovers something no-one, and especially not a child should have to witness.

As the aftermath of Naomi’s discovery played out, she and her brother, Mason, changed their names to Carson, her mother’s maiden name and went to live with their uncle Seth and his partner, Harry. I loved these two. Naomi could never fully come to terms with her father’s notoriety, which resulted in her moving from place to place, trying to outrun the nightmares and legacy he left. She has a successful photography career and an online business but finds it almost impossible to let her guard down with people. Until she sees the house on the bluff above Sunrise Cove, serene, calm and desperate for some TLC, acquires a sorry looking stray dog and is drawn into to small town life even more when she meets Xander. Sparks fly despite her attempts to keep her distance. Maybe this is what she’s been looking for. Perhaps she can have a ‘normal’ life.

What a very atmospheric and chilling opening to this story, which is loosely divided into three parts. I thought the way young Naomi coped with her life was written realistically and it was interesting to see how the siblings went in opposite directions. Naomi running from her past, never feeling comfortable enough to put down roots, and Mason’s plan to learn as much as he could about serial killers with a view to joining the FBI.

When Naomi sees the house on the bluff during her travels, her life changes yet again. She prompts her to buy regardless of the work which would be involved to make it habitable. She begins to accept the offers of friendship, and relationships are something Nora Roberts does extremely well. It’s very refreshing too, when women have conversations about things other than men. And there’s quite a bit dealing with house renovations and the intricacies of photography which I found interesting. The amount of research never fails to impress. I loved the descriptions of the town and its people, the surrounding area, the sunrises, sunsets and the forest.

In the third section of the book, the reader gets a chilling sense of the killer’s thought process. It wasn’t hard to guess the identity, and that doesn’t happen often for me but nevertheless, I enjoyed the read very much. I always know what to expect with a Nora Roberts standalone, the standard of the writing and engaging characters rarely disappoint.
Russian Classics in Russian and English: Learn Russian with Pushkin (Russian Edition)
Russian Classics in Russian and English: Learn Russian with Pushkin (Russian Edition)
Having decided to relearn Russian (which I studied as a subsidiary subject at university about 15 years ago and have subsequently mostly forgotten), my eye was caught by this book as one of my main aims for the language is to be able to enjoy Russian literature in the original language rather than just in translation.

As advertised, the book is based around parallel texts in Russian and English of two short stories by Pushkin. The print is nice and clear and the Russian version has the stresses marked on all polysyllabic words, which is a very handy feature (as remembering word stresses was always one of things I found hardest about the language).

There is a small vocabulary given on each page, which includes multiple translations of each featured Russian word and several cognates (i.e. related words formed from the same root), which is useful for building vocabulary. However, only a very few of the words on each page are covered (mostly ones towards the start of the page) so you still have to rely on the parallel English text or dictionaries to get most of the vocabulary required for understanding the texts.

The inclusion of a transliteration seems to be slightly pointless since anyone who can read Russian sufficiently well to even make a start on trying to use this book is going to be able to read the Cyrillic alphabet anyway. I think the space would have been much better used for increasing the size of the vocabulary section or including some notes on grammar or cultural issues that would aid understanding the text (there is nothing like that at all in the book).

For someone with a reasonable grasp of Russian already, even fairly rusty, this is not a a bad book at all (despite the space wasted on the transliteration). It would, however, be very frustrating for somebody who bought this with a view to learning the language from it in the first place.
Roadwork
Roadwork
Stephen King has made a name for himself as writer with a mind for the supernatural. His Constant Reader is expecting his Constant Writer to deliver just that: another novel, novella or short story as a gate for the extraordinary to slip through the customs of common sense, unnoticed, and let itself silently into our lives. Others have done it before, masters of the genre have left an impressive legacy of precedents, and it is expected others will carry further the tradition of invoking the angel of the bizarre. What all writers have in common though is their acute perception of life as an anomaly. Artists will dress up accidents disrupting our everyday existence as uncanny events ascribable to mysterious causes. I readily agree that a blood sucking creature flapping its wings through your night-time chambers is much more entertaining than another portrait of an unloving spouse. Still, the unwritten rule of the genre is that mystery may be stripped of its cloak, gown and hood and reveal itself for what it really is: a betrayal of the heart or a treason of the body. While I always ackowledged Stephen King as a first rate story teller, I always felt uncomfortable when he turned his skills towards the actual supernatural. I resented the Constant Writer for a maladroit narrative which I found to be suddenly out of step with a well crafted and promising beginning. Reading Roadwork I assumed the Constant Writer eventually grew out of his own paradox. The mature painter realised it only takes a truthful representation of life to deliver the painful shock of reality to the reader, I deducted. Roadwork shows nature going out of its way to present us with the harsher implications of leading an ordinary life. King is getting on in age, I mused. Before I discovered a green twentysomething was behind this fantastic piece of literature. I guess that's as much supernatural this Constant Reader can take. But what a briliant, insightful and well crafted piece of roadwork this is. God bless you, Bachman. You should be reclassified as a master of literature.

Manuscrito Encontrado em Accra (Em Portuguese do Brasil)
"This is a beautiful word-to-word literature treasure! Now, if you don't appreciate truths, wisdom, and deep thinking you won't find this book exciting. The content is seasoned, written in a fashion and style that will cause the reader to ponder about life's most important factors. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and although Portuguese is not my first language, I found this work totally amazing."
The Case of the Perjured Parrot (Perry Mason Series Book 14)
The Case of the Perjured Parrot (Perry Mason Series Book 14)
Gardner's Perry Mason novels are a bit repetitive, but very well done. I have blown them off for decades because they were so overdone on television that it was almost impossible to give anyone a fair jury trial during the 60s. Finally reading them in my 70s, I find the books are much better than the TV series, although I saw very little of it. Perjured Parrot, however, stands out as quintessential Perry-in-print, with all the elements at their best. So, if you can only be bothered with one, do try this one.

Naruto roman - Le roman de Sasuke (naruto roman 2) (Shonen Kana) (French Edition)
I ordered Naruto 1 and 2 manga. It said they were in new condition.

Well, the cover sleeve was all mangled up and folded crooked and uneven so the cover is ruined, and some genius decided to put price stickers on the covers that don't come off so the cover looks like crap now. I tried to take off the sticker put decided to stop so I wouldn't end up ripping the cover and making it even more ugly than it is now. People buy these kind of books to collect them, not to use once and then throw away - they don't want stickers on the covers!
Stairway to Murder (A Detective Joe Ezell Mystery, Book 2): Private Investigator Cozy Mystery
Stairway to Murder (A Detective Joe Ezell Mystery, Book 2): Private Investigator Cozy Mystery
I'd give this just under 5 stars. I was prepared to not like it, but found it quite good. The reason I didn't think I'd like it was the cover. I'm more into cozy mysteries and from the picture & title, I was prepared for something Chandlerish where the hero gets injected with strong narcotics that should have killed him or at least got him hooked on drugs, while also being beaten to within an inch of his life multiple times. Instead I found an interesting period mystery. The only reason I read it was I had just signed up for eBook Discovery and it was the only mystery they offered that week. Just goes to show you can't judge a book by its cover. A Chandler or Hammett fan would be more likely to like this than a Christie fan, but both could enjoy it. I certainly did. I would read more books by this author. Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery, I voluntarily review this book. This is my honest review.
Best Counting Book Ever

Too wordy, Too complicated! I was hoping for something with large prints and would be easy to follow for a 2 year old. Even i got tired after a few pages.

I do see that the larger numbers have less as there is a lot more to count.
Baby Blessed (That Special Woman! Book 9895)
Baby Blessed (That Special Woman! Book 9895)
I had a hard time getting through this. It has lots of sad and bad stuff happening. Things I truly hate. Death of a child, long separation, and the hero was still married to the h but had a fiancee. Yes they were apart three years but he was still married. Now he wants a divorce but the h is in war torn Africa and so he and his mercenary friend go to pick her up and there is danger so you know what that means.; They have danger sex. And we all know what happens then, they make a danger baby which neither one knows at this point. Of course he never tells her he's engaged and she thinks they are getting back together but no he goes back to his fiancee and pushes for the divorce once they get home. He finds out the night before it's final and it gets angst. I totally cried in several parts and my heart hurt. There is tons of push me pull me fights and he is a despicable person once their baby started showing. He does do a 360 at the end but I still felt he did not deserve the h. She was simply amazing and strong and she totally loved him. I have it four stars because it moved me. Love Debbie's older books. Another thing the cover on this edition is horrible. Doesn't look anything like the characters described in the book.
Seelen
Seelen
Ich habe dieses Buch schon so oft gelesen, ich kann es gar nicht mehr zählen. Dieses Buch zählt zu meinen absoluten Lieblingsbüchern.
Die Handlung des Buches spielt in der Zukunft. Die anderen Lebewesen in und außerhalb der Galaxie haben es statt, dass die Menschen sich gegenseitig bekriegen und ihren Planeten zerstören. Kurzerhand übernehmen die sogenannten „Seelen“ (in jeder Welt werden sie anders genannt) den Planeten. Seelen können nicht ohne Wirt überleben und nisten sich in den Körpern der Menschen ein und übernehmen so, ohne das die Menschen etwas ahnen, den Planeten. Melanie gehört zu den Menschen, die sich den Seelen widersetzen. Gemeinsam mit ihrem Bruder versucht sie zu überleben. Stiehlt und klaut aus den Häusern der Menschen, die bereits „infiziert“ wurden. Auf ihrer Flucht lernt sie jemanden kennen, aber dazu später mehr.
Man ist sofort in der Geschichte. Es geht los mit Melanies Flucht, wie sie durch ein Gebäude hetzt und der Feind sie verfolgt. Am Ende eines Ganges sieht sie keinen Ausweg mehr uns springt in die Tiefe. In der Hoffnung so ihren Bruder und Jared zu retten. Man denkt sofort sie hätte den Sturz nicht überlebt, denn die nächste Sequenz wird aus Sicht der neuen Seele erzählt. Sie gibt sich selbst den Namen Wanderer, da sie schon auf vielen Planeten gelebt hat und hier auf der Erde ihr „letztes Leben“ leben möchte. Leider hat sie die Rechnung ohne Melanie gemacht. Die möchte nämlich nicht aus ihrem Körper vertrieben werden.
Die Geschichte ist wunderbar erzählt. Ich habe mit Melanie und Wanda gelitten, geliebt, gefreut alles zusammen. Alles ist anschaulich beschrieben. Ich kann es nur jedem empfehlen.
The Living Daylights
The Living Daylights
Clearly the best Bond film of all time! Dalton was ahead of his time and its a great shame that The Living Daylights is often overlooked.

- Bond actually thinks, and the audience is left to figure out the complexities of motives and ideas. I can't think of another Bond film where the intelligence of the audience is respected. For example - when Bond first meets Kara, and Kara explains that Koscov had her help cover his defection as a pretend assassin. In that moment, Bond realises two things - that Koscov had wanted her to die at Bond's sharp shooting, and also that Kara has no idea that he has far less affection for her than she does for him. None of this is explained - but if you've been paying attention, and are thinking, then you can realise these two things at the same time as Bond does - and Dalton acts it brilliantly. I also love how Bond thinks at the country house meeting, being suspicious of Koscovs motives, and at later points in the film where he's trying to suss out what's going on.

- This is a rare Bond film where its actually Bond who is figuring out the mystery and motives rather than being told to investigate someone or some plot. Some criticise the story for not having high enough stakes, but for me its a relief to trade a "take over the world" plot for a thinking man's mystery spy thriller.

- The relationship with the girl is complex. Its very ambiguous in places whether Bond actually likes her, or is just pretending to to get the answers he needs and to keep her close for information. Her irritation is purposeful - she genuinely winds him up - and watching this tension play against him also finding her attractive is fun. Even after they kiss for the first time (the fairground scene - where his intentions are still ambiguous) he still shows contempt and impatience.

- The music - brilliant score, my favourite for any Bond film. The three themes (the a-Ha and two Pretenders songs) weaving into the soundtrack score is great. Its so much better than the already horribly dated, cold Eric Serra score that followed later in Goldeneye. John Barry did a fantastic job, and cameos at the end as the conductor.

- Necros - awesome villain, and contributes to one of the best action scenes in a Bond film with his one-man take down of the country house to rescue Koscov. Any other scene like this in an earlier Bond was laden with fake wooden planks, sugar glass, hammy henchman acting - but here it plays gritty and real. He burns a mans face before whacking him out cold with a frying pan - years before the brutality of Bourne films or Craig's Bond. Interestingly, the actor (who also played the "they have rules for policemen" terrorist in Die Hard, and the guy on the bench holding the match in Mission Impossible), is now a yoga instructor.

- Genuine spy stuff: Other Bond films seem to rely on naff action or CGI/gimmicky stuff to please the audience. Here we get rare scenes that play like a good spy thriller. The defection - the moody late night hotel scene with the night-vision and sniper rifle. The conversations in the car driving to the defection point. Getting Kara out of her apartment in view of the guys watching. The scene in Pushkins apartment, and then his staged assassination. The fairground scene, getting information from Saunders, and Bond's subsequent anger at his death. If it weren't for the Moore-esque one-liners and shoe-horned action scenes (the car stuff), the film would play like a genuine spy thriller and would have probably been much better received and remembered.

- The best action scene for any Bond film! The moment the opium bags fall out of the plane, I feel a genuine lurch of panic every time I see it. Such an awesome set-piece.

The bluray is of course excellent, with loads of extras, commentaries, trailers etc. The making of film is actually a good one, with decent anecdotes and stories of filming it - not just talking heads gushing about it in a PR way like you normally get these days.

I gave this movie 5 stars due to the effort to try to educate any audience willing to take a chance and view this movie. It is very graphic, cursing, death scenes, nudity, rape. pretty much a den for Satanic activity. Even though I have watched other movies about this subject, it first came to my attention in a movie starring Mira Sorvino and later Joyce Meyer ministries. Everyone can start helping by prayer. God is listening and watching. He is not unaware of this issue. God gave man a choice. Life or death! Blessings or curses. Horrible people are choosing death and curses. At just the right time the actions of those who enslave others will see themselves enslaved. I stopped the movie to research a little about what the church(body of Christ) is doing to help. There are a few good articles about identifying this activity all around us. I was in an Office Max a couple of years ago, I got in line behind this Woman and a child. I waited patiently then noticed the little girl staring at my shoes. I looked at her and smiled. I love children. She was a young black girl. Then I saw the Woman grab the girls hand and look at her so mean. The older Woman never looked at me, just the little girl. Flags flew in my mind but what could I do? The older Woman was white. We had to stop assuming the worst years ago about these situations but I prayed anyway. For their safety and God's will. If I had seen the child being abused, I would have stepped up but we can not be paranoid but I wondered later after seeing more of these movies and reading more articles about Trafficking. I do believe God knows and will open our eyes when or if He wants us to get involved. I am very thankful for all of the organizations that help reunite trafficked people with family. I am very thankful for the producers of movies like this who educate. I pray God's greatest blessings on those who give their life and safety to help people escape. I could never be entertained by this issue in any form. I do wonder though about the statistics. How can anyone know exactly how many people are trafficked? How can anyone know how much money is made in America or anywhere else? If they know, how can they not mobilize help? Just a thought! This is not a movie to watch as a family. But adults who are mentally and emotionally healthy hopefully can know this is a real issue. We can look up sights dedicated to giving us advice on how to do our part. For me, I am a fierce bodyguard over my daughters and I DO NOT care who knows. I am a proud helicopter mom!! This is not a hopeless issue. If anyone believes so, I advise them to read their Bible and see what God did to free His children. See what God did to free all mankind and see Historical documents accounting wars between North and South to free African-American people from slavery. Slavery may always be with us until Jesus comes back to slay the dragon but until then we can pray and get educated and armed with knowlwdge. We can share funds as we have and write to out congressmen to develop laws to prevent and take care of this. I am sure I have a lot to learn in this matter. Ending of this movie was both good and one sad scene at the ending however I do believe God placed that uplifted woman there to help other girls. She will be free one day. God Bless.
The Magician of Lublin
The Magician of Lublin
Singer is one of the great writers of his generation and the Nobel committee recognised this decades ago. "For how long can a man be surprised" was his typical answer when a TV crew finally caught up with him on the day when he received the Nobel prize. Here is another typical Singer "extract" from another book for which I love this man: "Not long ago I had read that each atom was a sort of solar system. I, David, the rabbi’s son, was sitting in the midst of eternity, turning with the earth on its axis, which in turn was circling the sun. I myself was an entire cosmos. Yet I also felt very fearful: I was a cosmos that had nowhere to spend the night."

AQUARIUS Harry Potter Playing Cards - House Crests Themed Deck of Cards for Your Favorite Card Games - Officially Licensed Harry Potter Merchandise & Collectibles - Poker Size with Linen Finish
I collect playing card so this is what I look for in a new addition: attention to detail. First, no kidding but thanks for the strip to facilitate the opening of the plastic seal. Second, box is well fitting but roomy enough to get cards in and out without having to crimp the box. The cards themselves feature four different illustrations of the particular house for the face cards and the ace. The number cards have the house animal representing the pips. The playing cards use the house colors. The jokers depict the Hogswarts Crest with a dual trim in two of the house colors: the bottom and left side of the card are green while the top and right side of the card are red, for example. Nice touch: appreciate that detail. All in all, sufficient interesting features to make this a good addition to the collection.

PediFix Felt Callus Protectors, 8-Count
I was told that mole skin was the way to go for the cyst I have on the bottom of my foot. Friends suggested FELTastic Callus Protectors would be too thick, would not adhere and might be uncomfortable. Nothing further from the truth for me. This is exactly what I was needing. The extra padding is so comfortable and it adheres more strongly and STAYS on much longer than mole skin. Neither sweating or showering affect the adhesive. I can wear one pad for days if I choose. I am purchasing more to make sure I have them on hand when needed.

Storex Extra Large Book Bin, 14.5 x 9.2 x 7 Inches, Assorted Colors, Case of 6 (71126E06C)
While these are a good price, the size is totally wrong! At the top, they measure 4 1/2 inches, but that is not the 'smallest' width of these, so you can't assume you can fit something very wide inside of them. I bought them to use as cabinet organizers. The width of the bottom of the storage containers is really only 2 3/4 inches! It goes wider as it goes up to the top, which doesn't help. The ad description should list the real minimum width so people know what they can actually fit inside these storage bins. Also, the length of the bottom is 9 inches, so if you are using it for books, you will not be able to put anything wider than 8 1/2 -- 8 3/4 inch wide books in them.

Other uses:
spice racks
will not work for canned goods

I bought some 14.3x5.3x7 inch ones and I use them to organize cleaning supplies and stuff in the hall closet, and behind the kitchen sink.

If you find the right size storage bins, you can use them for can soup or other canned good organizers for cabinets, or to store can soda or beer in the refrigerator and not have to worry about cans getting moved around and out of order.

If the measurements were realistic, I would have rated this item higher, but given that people are counting on accurate measurements to use a product, it is important to whether a product is a pass or fail! None of us want to deal with returns!
The Music Tree (Part 2A)
The Music Tree (Part 2A)
The Music Tree Part 2A picks up nicely after finishing Part 1. Unlike the beginning of Part 1, there is no repetitive review of everything learned in the previous book – we jump right in. Eighth notes and the use of the damper (or sustain) pedal are introduced immediately. Songs are far more recognizable, although obviously more so to adults. I thought using the grandfather clock chimes to introduce the sustain pedal was the perfect choice, but I have only had one student in my 12 years of teaching to know what a grandfather clock even is. The arrangement of Mildred and Patty Hill’s “Happy Birthday To You” (always give them credit!) is peculiar and even though the intro is the same as the ending, every kid hates it, so I have them learn it as written, and then rework it to their liking. Reveille is lots of fun and a great way to reinforce eighth notes. Many of my students tend to play too quickly (sound familiar?) so giving them Reveille as a “how fast can you play it accurately” challenge is always a blast.

Once the student has a handle on eighth notes, I keep the promise I made back when s/he was still working on Part 1 – the promise of the fun book that is nothing but duets where the student can play both the primo and secondo parts: Two At One Piano from the Frances Clark library, found here: https://www.amazon.com/Two-Piano-Frances-Clark-Library/dp/0874871417

Warm-ups appear regularly, although oddly, they are placed at the ends of units rather than at the beginnings. There is probably a reason for this, although I can’t figure out what it is.

Tonic and Dominant are introduced in this book. I’ve found that I also have to include a lesson in Roman Numerals because very few of my students know to associate “V” with the number 5 or why they even would. When did they stop teaching this in school?? Funny how again, a grandfather clock would help with this dilemma.

Unit 6 begins with more landmark notes, high G and low F. It’s at this point that I add the four Cs to this list because I believe they need “in between” landmarks and knowing the positions of all of the Cs on the staff AND on the piano avoids the “which C is it?” problem so many of my transfer students have. It also makes ledger line notes less intimidating, which is important because they show up very quickly after high G and low F are introduced.

The only thing I don’t like about this book is the introduction and use of a giant red exclamation mark symbol to alert the student to a hand position move, and here’s why:

1. I don’t like using any symbols that don’t appear outside of this lesson book. This is not a real musical symbol and you’ll never see it anywhere else.
2. Why now? We’ve been jumping all around the piano this whole time. Why is moving suddenly a THING that needs to be notated?
3. If the student needs to be alerted to move, then the student isn’t paying attention to the music, they are paying attention to the symbol. It’s a terrible crutch and they will come to rely on it.
4. The use of this symbol is inconsistent. There are plenty of times when it is missing.

I explain to all of my students what it is, why it’s there, and why we ignore it and just pay attention and read the music and always be looking ahead like we always have instead. And for this reason, I’ve deducted one star.

Unit 8 starts with a logical explanation of how a dotted quarter note is the same as a quarter note tied to an eighth note and uses “London Bridge” to demonstrate this, which was another perfect choice.

There are a couple of songs/pieces that could be overhauled or even replaced, including a full 2-page rendition of La Bamba that absolutely no child recognizes or appreciates. It’s a pretty ugly transcription anyway. I’ve played the real song for them on YouTube and it just makes it worse.

The penultimate piece in the book – “The Modern Dragon” - is the most challenging in the book and every single student I’ve had loves it. It encompasses practically everything they have learned to date. The very last piece is “This Land Is Your Land” and most recognize it, which is great, but it’s SUPER simple and can be sight read with ease. To me, the last piece in the book should make the student feel challenged, but ultimately triumphant, and this just feels anticlimactic. I try to fix this by teaching them how to embellish for a few minutes, and then I present the stack of Part 3 books.

Just like the rest of The Music Tree series, there is a corresponding Part 2a Activities book, which can be found here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0874879515/

The color i got is very pretty rose gold/ metallic light pink
Has little slots to thread through charging wires which i like it keeps everything really neat. this little stand is perfect for me, i use it on my desk in my home office, and can keep my iphone, watch, and airpods all neatly right in front of me without cluttering the space on my desk. i also like that when my phone is on the stand, it is much easier to activate facial recognition (iphone11) , whereas if it was on my desk i would manually have to lift it up and til it towards my face. the stand is nice and sturdy, i have the biggest iphone i phole11 pro max. with an otterbox case, and it holds it up just perfect. its not flimsy or anything like that.
I think this is a great buy to keep on your desk or also on a night table.
very satisfied.
The Possession
The Possession
The Possession is, as you have probably guessed, about a young girl who gets possessed by an evil spirit. Yes, the film is as original as that. However, despite a tired and overused premise, it does have one redeeming feature that makes it worth watching: the characters. They're nothing special, but I think that's the point. They're just an average (separated) family who don't overact or try and be too kooky. They're realistic and believable.

Then you have the children. Now, kids in movies are hit and miss at the best of times, let alone when a young actress is expected to act possessed and evil. Few can do it convincingly, but I think the girl in this has pulled it off.

The promotion claims that the film is `based on a true story.' It's not. That would be silly. It is however based on a box, somewhere in Eastern Europe that (supposedly) trapped a demon in it. That's how `based' it is, but never mind, just enjoy it for a decent supernatural horror flick.

Although, despite the characters, it's flaw lies in being little more than an updated Exorcist film. Any movie that deals with possession tends to follow a Three Step process. Step 1: Disbelief. When the surrounding characters wonder what's up with the possessed soul. Step 2: Research. Now, when the central character realised something is not right, they seek `professional help,' i.e. someone who deals with the supernatural. In most cases, a catholic priest (in this case some Jewish Rabbis). Step 3: Confrontation. The demon must be confronted. Expect plenty of head-twisting and foul language.

Ultimately, The Possession is probably worth a watch if you like supernatural/possession movies (or are just generally a fan of The Exorcist). The characters are well-played enough to elevate it above the numerous similar horror films. However, it is little more than a present day Exorcist film (but there are still a few good and creepy scares along the way).

Think `Gollum' from Lord of the Rings (if you watch the film all the way to the end, you'll know what I mean).
Zen and the Birds of Appetite (New Directions Paperbook)
Zen and the Birds of Appetite (New Directions Paperbook)
Zen and the Birds of Appetite (Thomas Merton)
April 8, 2013
Book Reaction

Initial Question:
How does Merton connect Zen (distinct from Buddhism) to the story of Jesus? What's "broken" and how does Merton suggest redemption and repair?

Musings Influenced by the Book:
Zen is not a thing; it's more of an absence. Within the Christian experience, it is the absence of resistance to Christ living in us and through us. Zen is not an obedience, but an alive-ness to what is, an absence of the question - it simply is.

Stripped of its Buddhist story, Zen as a reality fits within the Christian experience. Zen is the experienced reality of St. Paul's phrase, "It is no longer I who live but Christ who lives in me." The ancient Christians referred to this as "union" with God - an expression of life that lived from the core of the human person and seen from within as an inability to discern the origin of action: was it God or me who did this? This blur, this lack of question, and this free expression of what is (without resistance) is living "Zen."

My favorite quote:
"...liberation from his inordinate self-consciousness, his monumental self-awareness, his obsession with self-affirmation, so that he may enjoy the freedom from concern that goes with being simply what he is and accepting things as they are in order to work with them as he can." *Zen and the Birds of Appetite* p. 31

The general take away:
Awakening is the goal. This is something Christians have always talked about. The Christian sense of awakening differs from the traditional Buddhist story with regards to what one awakens to.

For the Christian, awakening is coming to the sense of the Father's divine love and present care and seeing all things that would flounder that reality purge away. It is in the life of Christ living in us that we come to see this love and have it live through us.

For the Buddhist, the awakening is more of a coming to see that all things are life and that there is no individual "me" - I am the Life, you are the Life, and all things that exist are life in this moment.

BALIBETOV - CPAP Memory Foam Pillow. The Sleep Pilow Reduce Mask Pressure. Prevent Air Leaks. Unparalleled Comfort. (Natural)
This pillow is excellent once you get used to it! I have a CPAP machine and I wear nasal pillows with it. I find I can now wget into a comfortable position with no leaks or exhaust noise immediately. I no longer get the neck pain I used to. And I get excellent results with my CPAP machine.
It is very firm and it did take me a week or so of perseverance to get used to it but it was well worthwhile.

EGV 3 Pack Screen Protector Compatible with iPhone 12 Pro Max 5G 6.7-inch, 9H HD Clear Tempered Glass, Case Friendly, Alignment Frame Easy Installation, Bubble Free
So today was new phone day. I used to upgrade far more often (when my mobile provider subsidized the cost of my phone), but these days it’s only every third year. So it’s an exciting day. I never go longer than I have to without a protective case & screen cover so I ordered these earlier this week.

The product itself is a nice retail package complete with everything you need to install these protectors. It’s got alcohol wet wipes, a cleaning cloth, no-residue stickers for picking up dust, and most importantly, a precision molded plastic tray to ensure an exact fit to your phone. But the best part is that you get three glass protectors.

As I noted in the subject line, this is the fastest screen protector install I’ve ever done, and I’ve done a lot. I’d wager that between myself, family, and friends, I’ve done over 60 protector installs. With a good kit, it can be between 3-5 minutes to ensure a good clean, dust removal, and proper fit. With these EGV protectors, I literally went from wiping the screen down to installed protector in about 40 seconds. No joke. And on top of that, it’s flawless. No dust under the screen, no misplaced alignment, no problems whatsoever. And all of this for $5 bucks?! C’mon!

***As an aside, I want to offer a sincere apology to the manufacturer/seller, EGV. I had a terrible experience with a different seller and when I went to rate them, I rated EGV instead on accident. There is no place for me to change that rating (unlike product reviews). They were all class. The shipment was super fast (less than 24 hours) and I have no complaints. I even called Amazon support asking to remove the seller rating I made but they would not. So honestly, I am so sorry for the mistake!

------------

*The Good*: Complete kit with all you need *and* three glass protectors for under $5 (at the time of review). An absolute steal. Phenomenally easy install in under 1 minute.

*The Bad*: Nothing at all so far.

*The Bottom Line:* For under $5 (at the time of review) this is a crazy-good deal. They are fast to install, precision-fitted, and unbelievably inexpensive. This is one of the easiest 5-stars I’ve ever given.

iCarez HD Anti Glare Matte Screen Protector for iPhone 12 Pro Max 6.7-Inches [3 Pack] (Case Friendly) Premium No Bubble Easy to Apply with Hinge Installation
This isn’t the product that best suits my phone usage needs so that’s why I gave it an overall low star rating. It is super thin which personally wasn’t to my liking because I don’t know how it protects against drops/cracks/punctures. It IS NOT that thicker durable material if that’s what you’re wanting. It does provide protection from scratches and gives antiglare quality and that matte feel but my previous purchases for matte screen protectors that are thicker protect against oily fingers and smudges. This one does not. It’s also not as easy to apply. It comes with sticker aligners which I use that helps a lot but again because it is paper thin it makes it tricker to get air pockets out. The size also seems smaller than I expected and not edge to edge protection.

mysuntown Office Chairs Without Arms, Small Ergonomic Task Chair No Arms, Drafting Student Armless Computer Desk Chair, Black
Picture this, you are a poor college student and your grandma gives you her old office chair. You go about your life using this chair for years on end, thinking this is just how office chairs are. A literal pain in the ass.
Then you come across this, lets say 4-5yrs later.
You can't go back. You'll never go back. In fact, you had no idea that an office chair could be this comfortable. This breathable. The wheels roll smoothly and your lower back and ass have forgotten what pain even means.
Guitar sessions are able to be extended for several more hours, guests no longer complain about their Player 2 chair, and sometimes, you even hop out of that Gaming Chair in favour of this one. Life is Good. And this Chair is the reason. Buy It.

Jelly Belly Licorice Jelly Beans - Bolsa resellable de 1 libra (16 onzas) - Genuina, oficial, directamente de la fuente
I purchased the Jelly Belly Licorice Jelly Beans three times within the last 3 months. The first two purchases they had great flavor. The third/last purchase there is barely a licorice taste. I don't even want to eat them because of that. It's the first time I've ever experienced this when buying licorice jelly beans of any brand. I may have to switch to a different brand because these are expensive, and I didn't get what I paid for this last time. I was so looking forward to these, and the two week shipping wait and price would've been worth it if they had the licorice flavor they should have had. I'm very disappointed!

Protein2o 0.53 oz de agua con infusión de proteína de suero de leche, paquete de variedades, 16.9 oz botella (paquete de 12)
I had only recently heard of "protein waters" and decided to browse around for an affordable option for breakfast. I had found this product and was really happy with it. I'm not a breakfast eater and am always on the go in the morning. I wanted to start including breakfast in my diet though. This was an option that was satisfying to me. Low calorie and the perfect amount of protein. This isn't too filling which is nice because I don't like being full in the morning as it makes me feel nauseous. Protein2O was a great solution. On the hunger scale it was satisfying. The flavor was not just delicious but was perfect-was not too sweet and not bland like a regular coconut is. An important piece as well is that there are only 5 grams of sugar. I personally, would recommend as a snack or for a good substitute for a small breakfast. I will purchase more in the future and am interested in other flavor options.
