Humorous advice for cats, by cats. The author ´´discovered´´ the feline world´s best-kept secret in a file hidden on his mother´s computer by her cat, Cleo, and now shares it with humanity for the first time. Topics covered range from avoiding visits to the vet, to the artful display of captured prey, to getting in the way of a human trying to read anything, including this paragraph. Upon publication, Cleo denied authorship and hired a team of lawyers with their claws out, but despite her best efforts, word is spreading with over 75,000 Kindle downloads: The Cat Manual is hilarious for cat-lovers of all ages. From the author of Cave Passages and Dark Life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Ray Taylor. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/005143/bk_acx0_005143_sample.mp3.

Harry Denton is behind on his rent, his phone bill, and his life. He is just about to close down his private investigation business when he finally gets a client. The job sounds like a simple one: photograph a famous self-help author with his mistress. When Harry finds him, however, the creator of Life´s Little Maintenance Manual is very alone - and very dead. Now, instead of a detective, Harry is a murder suspect. If he can´t track down the killer and clear his own name, Harry will be out of business for good.Through the voice of L.J. Ganser, the smart-mouthed detective and some of Nashville´s most colorful operators come to life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: L. J. Ganser.

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of How to be Human: The Manual written and read by Ruby Wax with Ash Ranpura and Gelong Thubten. It took us 4 billion years to evolve to where we are now. No question, anyone reading this has won the evolutionary Hunger Games by the fact you´re on all twos and not some fossil. This should make us all the happiest species alive, yet most of us aren´t. What´s gone wrong? We´ve started treating ourselves more like machines and less like humans. We´re so used to upgrading things like our iPhones: as soon as the new one comes out, we don´t think twice, we dump it. (Many people I know are now on iWife4 or iHusband8, the motto being, if it´s new, it´s better.) We can´t stop the future from arriving, no matter what drugs we´re on. But even if nearly every part of us becomes robotic, we´ll still, fingers crossed, have our minds, which, hopefully, we´ll be able to use for things like compassion rather than chasing what´s ´better´, and if we can do that we´re on the yellow brick road to happiness. I wrote this book with a little help from a monk, who explains how the mind works and also gives some mindfulness exercises, and a neuroscientist who explains what makes us ´us´ in the brain. We answer every question you´ve ever had about evolution, thoughts, emotions, the body, addictions, relationships, kids, the future and compassion. How to be Human is extremely funny, true and the only manual you´ll need to help you upgrade your mind as much as you´ve upgraded your iPhone. 1. Language: English.

Over fifteen years of dirty secrets, shocking reveals, and all of the celebrity gossip that’s unfit to print . . . but we’re going to anyway. When Jay Z defended himself against unfair charges that he slapped a woman, when Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez got tagged by an escort agency madam, when Bill O’Reilly dissed Muslim women, and when Ruth Madoff discovered her scam artist husband, Bernie, had also been cheating on her, it all came out in the pages of Rush & Molloy, the internationally syndicated entertainment column devoured by millions. George Rush and Joanna Molloy are as dedicated to finding the juiciest scoops as they are to their long screwball romance. Together they’ve made some impressive enemies, turned down some bribes, become unlikely relationship counselors to famous star-crossed lovers, and witnessed the evolution of celebrity coverage from the twilight of Winchell to the dawn of Twitter. Part love story, part tabloid, Scandal is a rollicking memoir of fame, gossip, and two true icons of print and web journalism. Rush and Molloy have exposed, unraveled, and reported some of Hollywood’s biggest rumors, blind items, and unbelievable stories. Still, over the years, the couple has kept a few salacious tales to themselves - that is, until now! 1. Language: English. Narrator: George Rush, Joanna Molloy.

Quick guide to vegan diet and lifestyle - a practical manual that will assist your going and staying vegan. Switching to a vegan diet almost three decades ago, Mrs. Peterson grew more and more passionate about the vegan lifestyle, promoting it and assisting others in various matters connected to the vegan diet and lifestyle. Anne has managed to channel three decades of experience into this short, practical, and easy-to-use form. Warning: This is not a cookbook; if you are looking for a collection of recipes and nothing else, you probably do not want this book. However Vegan (Go and Stay) Manual will definitely enthuse your (vegan cooking) creativity and ideas, plus it will do for you so much more. Offering down-to-earth guidelines, practical information, and advice focused on health and well-being, Anne Peterson is avoiding all fluff, philosophical approaches, and theories (that we normally find in most of the vegan books not based on recipes). No one has to be worried about the title - this work in fact is a manual. Vegan (Go and Stay) Manual is going to help not only those men and women who consider switching to veganism but also those who are already familiar with theory and practice of the vegan way of living. In essence what you see in front of you is quite a unique, short, yet very useful piece of information. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Birgitta Bernhard.

The news is everywhere. We can’t stop constantly checking it on our computer screens, but what is this doing to our minds? We are never really taught how to make sense of the torrent of news we face every day, writes Alain de Botton (author of the best-selling The Architecture of Happiness), but this has a huge impact on our sense of what matters and of how we should lead our lives. In his dazzling new audiobook, de Botton takes twenty-five archetypal news stories - including an airplane crash, a murder, a celebrity interview and a political scandal - and submits them to unusually intense analysis with a view to helping us navigate our news-soaked age. He raises such questions as ´´Why are disaster stories often so uplifting?´´; ´´What makes the love lives of celebrities so interesting?´´; ´´Why do we enjoy watching politicians being brought down?´´; ´´Why are upheavals in far-off lands often so boring?´´ In The News: A User’s Manual, de Botton has written the ultimate guide for our frenzied era, certain to bring calm, understanding and a measure of sanity to our daily (perhaps even hourly) interactions with the news machine. 1.

Paulo Coelho inspired millions around the world and became one of the most beloved storytellers of our time with the international best-selling phenomenon The Alchemist. Now, in the beloved companion to his classic, The Warrior of The Light: A Manual invites us to live out our dreams to embrace the uncertainty of life and to rise to our own unique destiny. In his inimitable style, Paulo Coelho shows listeners how to embark upon the way of the Warrior: the one who appreciates the miracle of being alive, the one who accepts failure, and the one whose quest leads him to become the person he wants to be. 1.

Imagine that you are an Immortal, Omniscient, Omnipotent spiritual being. You have existed through all eternity, and cannot do otherwise. You are Eternally responsible for the existence of everything you can perceive in your Universe. Your every thought and whim materialize instantly, and disappear as soon as you stop. You know the outcome of every action you take before you make a move. Imagine how boring it might become? What price would you pay to be amused by someone other than yourself? What would you be willing to do to solve the problem of perpetual boredom? For an Immortal Being, mortality might be a coveted and convenient relief from eternal loneliness: no sensation, no surprises, no fun. What if a ´´Mortality Mechanic´´ could make your existence more exciting and less boring? Are you interested? After billions of years of testing and experimentation solutions to Immortality have been codified in the Mortality Mechanic´s Manual. You are the living proof that their job is done. 1.
