  • Deathworld

    Harry Harrison

    eBook (Open Road Media Sci-Fi & Fantasy, May 2, 2017)
    A gifted gambler fights to survive on a hostile planet in this classic novel from the creator of science fiction antihero the Stainless Steel Rat. The gravity is twice that of Earth. The weather is an unpredictable maelstrom. All species of life, both plant and animal, monstrous and microscopic, are lethal. And the environment is drenched with radioactivity. This is planet Pyrrus, where telepathically gifted gambler Jason dinAlt has ended up after scamming a government casino out of a fortune. A small, fortified town stands against the nonstop natural onslaught, and its people are the descendants of hardened survivors. But there are some who exist outside the city—the “grubbers,” humans living in harmony with the nightmarish surroundings who share a mutual hatred with the technologically superior city dwellers. These people fascinate Jason because they share his psionic abilities. And with their help he soon realizes that Pyrrus is more than just a planet. It’s alive. It’s intelligent. And it’s angry. From the legendary author whose novel Make Room! Make Room! was the basis for the film Soylent Green, Deathworld is “an action story with a built-in mystery” (Analog). This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

  • Effective Communication: 5 Essential Tips and Exercises to Improve How You Communicate in This Divided World, Even If It Is About Politics, Race or Gender!

    Max J. Harrison

    eBook
    How to improve all aspects of life with the #1 life skill everyone needs to know… Have you ever felt mad because you can´t get your message across? Have you ever experienced that no one is actively listening to the things you have to say? You stopped taking the effort to voice your opinion because you already know others won´t get you. With every conversation, you become more and more unsatisfied. The mean voices in your head drive you crazy and you can´t help it, but whenever you are stuck in a meeting or a draining discussion you are close to exploding. Either you manage to suppress your anger or you can´t hold back any longer and you blow up. No matter if you choose A or B, eventually both reactions lead to an immense increase of your stress levels. Stress can cause major mental and physical diseases such as depression, anxiety, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and even sexual dysfunction. Miscommunication is the #1 stress cause. Communication requires a high level of sensitivity because every message is conveyed and needs to be decoded. Did you know that… ...communication is only 7% verbal ....and 93% nonverbal? The non-verbal component is a combination of body language (55%) and tone of voice (38%). Just think about a casual dinner. You are sitting at a table with friends and someone asks “Does anyone see the salt?” Obviously, the question implies “If you see the salt and you can reach it, please hand it over to me.” Unfortunately, decoding is not always that simple. Everyone conveys their message in a different way. If we can´t decode what someone else tries to tell us, it´s an easy defense mechanism to blame “the other guy” for miscommunicating. Just think about all the times that you cast a spell on your partner, coworker, family member or friend. Miscommunication does not only cause stress but also kills your romantic- social- and work-related relationships. No one likes to be directly involved in miscommunication. Yet, all of us are...and that´s normal because we all see the world through different lenses. If you want to stop being passive aggressive because you don´t know how to convey and decode messages the right way, then it is time to discover the 5 most essential secrets to communicate effectively. In “Effective Communication”, you´ll discover: The 5 most important skills to communicate as intended Practical exercises to use in all areas of life How to turn every conversation into a win-win for both parties How to make sure no one will ever take advantage of you How to know what´s reality vs. the evil voices in your head How to maintain and create healthy, long-lasting relationships How to create the common ground for real in depth conversations How to increase your likability and success at work through communication How to overcome all communication barriers and break through anyone And much more. Regardless of how successful and smart you are, most of your insecurities are somehow connected to how you communicate in front of others. Insecurity leads into a “less is more” strategy. Instead of sharing what you really think and feel, you chicken out and don´t step up to the plate when the opportunity is on the table. Once you discover the principles of effective communication, you will know exactly how to get your point across in communication and you never have to be scared of miscommunication again. Stop messing with your social and professional life and improve the #1 life skill everyone needs to have.
