From Frank Brady, who wrote one of the best-selling books on Bobby Fischer of all time and who was himself a friend of Fischer’s, comes an impressively researched biography that for the first time completely captures the remarkable arc of Bobby Fischer’s life. When Bobby Fischer passed away in January 2008, he left behind a confounding legacy. Everyone knew the basics of his life—he began as a brilliant youngster, then became the pride of American chess, then took a sharp turn, struggling with paranoia and mental illness. But nobody truly understood him. What motivated Fischer from such a young age, and what was the source of his remarkable intellect? How could a man so ambivalent about money and fame be so driven to succeed? What drew this man of Jewish descent to fulminate against Jews, and how was it that a mind so famously disciplined could unravel so completely? From Fischer’s meteoric rise, to an utterly dominant prime unequaled by any American chess player, to his eventual descent into madness, the book draws upon hundreds of newly discovered documents and recordings and numerous firsthand interviews conducted with those who knew Fischer best. It paints, for the very first time, a complete picture of one of America’s most enigmatic icons. This is the definitive account of a fascinating man and an extraordinary life, one that at last reconciles Fischer’s deeply contradictory legacy and answers the question, who was Bobby Fischer? 1.

The 1950s marked a transformative period in postwar American history. In baseball, one dynasty was the story during the decade. The New York Yankees played in eight World Series from 1950 to 1959, winning six of them. Yankees icon Joe DiMaggio retired following the 1951 season, but a new superstar, Mickey Mantle, took over in Yankee Stadium’s center field in 1952. Mantle, the powerful switch-hitter who blasted tape-measure home runs, often tortured by leg ailments, was the number one box office draw in baseball. He was the American League’s most valuable player in 1956 and 1957, putting together a triple crown season in 1956. Mantle came into baseball when TV was just beginning to stir, and with the Yankees reaching the World Series and appearing on national TV seemingly every season, he became the face of the game during the decade. Mantle joined with his pals, pitcher Whitey Ford and infielder Billy Martin, to form a hard-partying trio that would be a joy and a pain to management. The author of several books on the Yankees, David Fischer will bring expertise and a knack for great storytelling to the saga of the most dominant decade in the annals of sport, set during a defining moment in US history. 1.

Previously titled Cowboy's Don't Marry Their Enemy Can you love someone and hate them at the same time? She led him on, lied about him, then dumped him for his cousin. She was his enemy. He walked. But he loved her still. Can people change? Cora Fischer knew they could. Heartbreak, abject poverty, and a mother’s bear instincts to protect her children at all costs could turn a selfish, spoiled girl into a strong, formidable woman. But first loves die hard. They were enemies, never lovers, despite what she told her family and the town. She hated him then, and he hates her now. But she can give him what he wants, and she’s willing to make a deal.

What if you could go back in time to save the person you love the most? When his father dies in a tragic climbing accident, Charlie discovers a well-hidden family secret which turns his life upside down and threatens to destroy his sense of self as well as his relationship with his girlfriend, Brooke. Named one of the 50 Best Indie Books of 2014 by Readfree.ly, Amazon top 500 reviewer Christopher Fischer explains why: 'Jahn handles a difficult subject matter with sensitivity, grace and depth. The novel explores the logical implications of time travel and cause and effects brilliantly and had me quite in awe of the twists and turns that this brought with it. At the heart, this is a story of love and family, about family values and deep emotional ties.' Although deep down Charlie always suspected his family wasn't what it seemed, the truth of his adoption compels him to search for his birth mother. In the quest to find her, he realizes travelling to the past for the truth he seeks will jeopardize his relationship with the person he cherishes most in the world. Brooke nearly lost everything traveling back in time to save her brother. Will Charlie make the same mistake? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Simon Lee Phillips.

It translates for the everyday person what our brothers and sisters endure on a regular basis as they serve our country.

***This is book one in a gay romantic suspense series.*** Detective Remington frickin' hates the missing persons detail, but a cold fury builds in the pit of his stomach when he realizes that over the past three months six boys have disappeared from the smaller communities that surround the greater Phoenix area. All reported to be runaways looking to escape their shitty lives, but Remy's starting to put together a different picture and he doesn't like it one damn bit. Inspector Jamie Mainwaring stares at the six reports, willing them to make sense. Six boys, six months, all from just outside of London, which meant six different investigations. All of the boys were between the ages of ten and fifteen, all purportedly runaways from dysfunctional families. Something was rotten in Denmark. There are always runaways. Every small town loses them--every big city collects them. Kids look for freedom and discover they have more to lose than they ever thought possible. London and Phoenix, culture and cowboys, nothing linking these two sprawling metropolitan areas. Nothing except a hit on a computer data search. Two cops, one a cowboy, the other a Lord. A secret government agency, human trafficking, and a blazing hot mutual distraction. This is the first installment in the Separate Ways Series. The books should be enjoyed in the following order: 1. Continental Divide 2. Oceans Apart** 3. Moving Mountains** 4. Prevailing Winds** **Coming soon to audio, other formats available. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dax Fischer.

There are many types of stress, such as with finances, your health, relationships, etc. For some people life may seem unfair because they are constantly struggling with stressors and aren't living the life they want. To make matters worse, it seems that for other people success comes easily. Do these things sound familiar to you? Well, what are you going to do about it? How can you really handle the stress when some days it seems very overwhelming? You need answers now and not later. Life is meant to be fun and joyous and not about suffering. Most books on stress tell you to take a deep breath or to think differently about the situation you are in. Often, they do not discuss real, long-lasting solutions. Finding a different perspective on life is helpful, but most people need answers for real problems as they happen. Daniel Rosenstein embarked on a journey for over 15 years, spending hundreds of hours reading books and searching on the Internet looking for real answers. He spent over $20,000 dollars attending various seminars and workshops, visiting different "gurus" and health practitioners in order to find out what works and what does not. Now, you have the choice whether or not to do the same thing, taking the long road in life and spending thousands of dollars on solutions that may not work. Or, you can find the answers you need right now in this audiobook, which costs less than the price of a cup of coffee. Most people are somewhat familiar with alternative therapies such as chiropractic and acupuncture. But this book will introduce you to other lesser-known methodologies. No fads here; just honest information about unique approaches that have been proven to be successful. It details a step-by-step guide on how to regain your self-control. Daniel Rosenstein takes you on a journey of healing, sharing what worked for him when turning his life around. Success is about finding balance in your life, but more important 1. Language: English.
