A Study in Scarlet is a detective novel by British author Arthur Conan Doyle. Written in 1886, the story marks the first appearance of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, who would become two of the most famous characters in popular fiction. The book's title derives from a speech given by Holmes, an amateur detective, to his friend and chronicler Watson on the nature of his work, in which he describes the story's murder investigation as his "study in scarlet": "There's the scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it, and isolate it, and expose every inch of it." Although Conan Doyle wrote 56 short stories featuring Holmes, A Study in Scarlet is one of only four full-length novels in the original canon. A Study in Scarlet was the first work of detective fiction to incorporate the magnifying glass as an investigative tool. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christopher Preece.

Two classic noir novellas about young men who find treacherous jobs during the Great Depression. In "Hades", Alexander Titus, a former Olympic decathlon star, comes to Hollywood looking for work. He and his friend Haw Gooch are down to their last dollar when they find jobs as bodyguards for erratic film producer Roger Quinlan. Quinlan seems quite paranoid, claiming that he’s being stalked by a demon and that he found Hades in a cavern in New Mexico. The story sounds crazy, but when Titus is framed for murder, he realizes Quinlan’s alleged hell might be the one place where he can also find the truth. In "Hocus Pocus", two penniless traveling magicians respond to an ad for a mind reader. A psychology professor hires them to infiltrate a group of evangelists who incorporate mind reading into their preaching. Cal “Marvelous” Merton and his assistant, Imagination Daly, will study the evangelists’ methods and report back on whether their mind reading is genuine. But as Merton and Daly join the New Apostles, the air of danger is palpable, and questions arise about their employer and what exactly they’re investigating. 1. Language: English.

The age old question of who loves whom is a timeless one that transcends generations. If anyone knew how to incorporate the many intricacies and obstacles of romance into one novel, it was none other than Jane Austen. Few are actually aware that this novel has gone on to inspire many other productions, such as the movie Clueless. The classic focuses on the life of Emma, who is 20 years old when we meet her and is whole-heartedly satisfied with the idea that she will never get married. Despite her aversion to a lifelong commitment to love, throughout the novel, Emma tries to be a matchmaker to both friend and acquaintance, failing miserably at every opportunity. As she meddles her way throughout the book, she ends up considering different men to be her suitor, to which her wiser brother-in-law Mr. Knightly keeps a steady and suspicious eye on. Nearly each time Emma thinks she has a problem solved, Mr. Knightly shows her the error of her ways. At the end of the novel, Emma realizes that she is actually in love with Mr. Knightly. 1.

Many of your emotional responses, regardless of how much strength you've given them, can be brought down, deconstructed, and reshaped. You will just have to learn how to give your knee-jerk response to emotional stimuli less strength - less of a jerk. To do that you will have to commit to reinventing the way you think and behave. With Go Suck a Lemon, you will approach that task by accepting and then adapting to a no-nonsense style of emotional problem solving. You will learn and use a process of level-headed decision-making. You will try to become more efficient, flexible, and open-minded when addressing your emotional problems. You will learn that there is always another emotional option. You will learn to make fact-based observations, something most of us are unfamiliar with doing. You will also incorporate in vivo (in life) exposure, i.e., homework, to encourage you to independently act against your learned thoughts and behaviors. In the end, you will become more informed, increasingly more capable, and far more emotionally self-reliant. Instead of being your own worst enemy, you will become your own best friend - your own therapist. We may be strengthened when we learn to be emotionally self-reliant, to free ourselves from emotional helplessness and our dependence on others for our emotional solutions. 1. Language: English.

Through it all, he ensures we are more than conquerors. (Romans 8:37)This first of two volumes in a year-long daily devotional highlights nearly a hundred of the most comforting and powerful verses on how God is our shelter from the storm.

Multiply your business profits through the efforts of others! Discover the ease of selling to referred customers! In fact, if you ask professional salespeople and marketers, they will invariably tell you that referral prospects are the easiest people to sell to and the most time and cost efficient. When I discovered the power of referrals, my own business profits went up millions of dollars! And my students have met with similar results. Why are referrals more eager to buy than typical prospects? It's simply human nature. People are usually attracted to like-minded people. Therefore, if one person buys a product or service, the chances are they know someone who also would enjoy the same. In most cases, the person giving you the referral will even call the prospect and introduce you and your product or service and let that person know you will be calling. The referred prospect then becomes warmer and more open to hearing about your offer because he or she has already heard how good your product or service is! You'll never have to worry about coming off as an intrusive salesperson to new prospects. Now you'll be viewed as a friend, a consultant, or an expert. This program contains highly detailed explanations and experiences that 93 past attendees of my Mastermind seminars have successfully employed to develop referral systems for their hugely successful businesses. By listening to them, by hearing what they say, by learning what they've done, you'll come to know how to apply, adapt, adopt, and incorporate nearly 100 different referral systems into a powerful, referral-producing money machine of your own. All of this information comes from the very people who used and developed or refined them to such great benefit themselves! These are real-world, success-proven, profit-certain strategies that are currently accounting for over $150 million in sales and profits. And, with 93 Extraordinary Referral Systems, you'll also receive the extensive, sup 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jay Abraham.
