A mind-bending, classic Philip K. Dick novel about the perception of reality. Named as one of Time's 100 best books. Glen Runciter runs a lucrative business - deploying his teams of anti-psychics to corporate clients who want privacy and security from psychic spies. But when he and his top team are ambushed by a rival, he is gravely injured and placed in "half-life," a dreamlike state of suspended animation. Soon, though, the surviving members of the team begin experiencing some strange phenomena, such as Runciter's face appearing on coins and the world seeming to move backward in time. As consumables deteriorate and technology gets ever more primitive, the group needs to find out what is causing the shifts and what a mysterious product called Ubik has to do with it all. 1.

As ancient literature and a cornerstone of the Christian faith, the New Testament has exerted a powerful religious and cultural impact. But how much do we really know about its origins? Who were the people who actually wrote the sacred texts that became part of the Christian Bible? The New Testament: A Very Short Introduction authoritatively addresses these questions, offering a fresh perspective on the underpinnings of this profoundly influential collection of writings. In this concise, engaging audiobook, noted New Testament scholar Luke Timothy Johnson takes listeners on a journey back to the time of the early Roman Empire, when the New Testament was written in ordinary Greek (koine) by the first Christians. The author explains how the Gospels, Acts of the Apostles, and Revelation evolved into the canon of sacred writings for the Christian religion, and how they reflect a reinterpretation of the symbolic world and societal forces of first-century Greco-Roman and Jewish life. Equally important, listeners will find both a positive and critical reading of the New Testament - one that looks beyond its theological orientation to reveal an often-surprising diversity of viewpoints. This one-of-a-kind introduction engages four distinct dimensions of the earliest Christian writings - anthropological, historical, religious, and literary - to provide listeners with a broad conceptual and factual framework. In addition, the audiobook takes an in-depth look at compositions that have proven to be particularly relevant over the centuries, including Paul's letters to the Corinthians and Romans and the Gospels of John, Mark, Matthew, and Luke. Ideal for general listeners and students alike, this fascinating resource characterizes the writing of the New Testament not as an unknowable abstraction or the product of divine intervention, but as an act of human creativity by people whose real experiences, convictions, and narratives shaped modern Christia 1.

It’s finally here. The long-awaited sequel to the bestselling Unwind, which Publishers Weekly called a “gripping, brilliantly imagined futuristic thriller.” Thanks to Connor, Lev, and Risa—and their high-profile revolt at Happy Jack Harvest Camp—people can no longer turn a blind eye to unwinding. Ridding society of troublesome teens while simultaneously providing much-needed tissues for transplant might be convenient, but its morality has finally been brought into question. However, unwinding has become big business, and there are powerful political and corporate interests that want to see it not only continue, but also expand to the unwinding of prisoners and the impoverished. Cam is a product of unwinding; made entirely out of the parts of other unwinds, he is a teen who does not technically exist. A futuristic Frankenstein, Cam struggles with a search for identity and meaning and wonders if a rewound being can have a soul. And when the actions of a sadistic bounty hunter cause Cam’s fate to become inextricably bound with the fates of Connor, Risa, and Lev, he’ll have to question humanity itself. Rife with action and suspense, this riveting companion to the perennially popular Unwind challenges assumptions about where life begins and ends—and what it means to live. 1. Language: English.

The product of painstaking research and countless interviews, A High Price offers a nuanced, definitive historical account of Israel's bold but often failed efforts to fight terrorist groups. Beginning with the violent border disputes that emerged after Israel's founding in 1948, Daniel Byman charts the rise of Yasser Arafat's Fatah and leftist groups such as the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine--organizations that ushered in the era of international terrorism epitomized by the 1972 hostage-taking at the Munich Olympics. Byman reveals how Israel fought these groups and others, such as Hamas, in the decades that follow, with particular attention to the grinding and painful struggle during the second intifada. Israel's debacles in Lebanon against groups like the Lebanese Hizballah are examined in-depth, as is the country's problematic response to Jewish terrorist groups that have struck at Arabs and Israelis seeking peace. In surveying Israel's response to terror, the author points to the coups of shadowy Israeli intelligence services, the much-emulated use of defensive measures such as sky marshals on airplanes, and the role of controversial techniques such as targeted killings and the security barrier that separates Israel from Palestinian areas. Equally instructive are the shortcomings that have undermined Israel's counterterrorism goals, including a disregard for long-term planning and a failure to recognize the long-term political repercussions of counterterrorism tactics. 1.

This book will demystify all the facets of cryptocurrencies, so you will have a pretty good idea of what it means when you have finished listening, so you can talk to others with a certain degree of certainty and awareness.Many people have already achieved millionaire status by dealing with cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrency is a digital, virtual, decentralized currency produced through the application of cryptography. Cryptocurrency is not funded by banks or sponsored by a government, but by an algorithm that is very complicated. Cryptocurrency is electricity stored in complex algorithm strings. What gives monetary value is the complexity and safety of hackers. Contrary to fiat money, like dollar, yen, and euro, another part of what makes cryptocurrency valuable is that there is only a limited amount of it, like a product like silver and gold. It cannot be improved by printing more like a dictatorship printing more money to pump the system up without funding.Many cryptocurrencies include Namecoin, Litecoin, Peercoin, Dogecoin, and Worldcoin. The manner in which cryptocurrency is produced is fascinating. Cryptocurrency is, in comparison to the gold that is mined from the earth, only a record in a virtual ledger that is stored in various computers around the world.Such entries must be "mined" with mathematical algorithms. Individual users or, more often, a group of users conduct computer analysis in order to find certain data series called blocks. The "miners" find data that gives the cryptographic algorithm an exact pattern.Now, everybody could be a miner. In this book, we will explore the basics of cryptocurrency or electronic currency (also known as digital currency), alongside its benefits in making efficient transactions.Some important topics that you will find in this audiobook are:Analyzing cryptocurrencies trendBlockchain for normal peopleWhat is and how to buy Bitcoin 1.
