It’s never too soon to take your next breath. Behind tinted windows a few yards from mourning family and friends, Jessica and Jude Day witness their parents’ funeral - and their own. Stripped of the only life they’ve ever known, the Days say goodbye to San Francisco forever.Six months and two new identities later, the 30-year-old misfits with elite self-defense skills and penchants for alcohol, sex, and trouble arrive like an earthquake to Peaceful Woods, a retirement community in Omaha, Nebraska, that thrives on rules and gossip.Welcome home, Jackson and Jillian Knight.Jackson celebrates his new beginning by embracing his job and wiping his cavalier past clean with a temporary oath of celibacy. But Jillian’s past is branded into her soul - the deaths, the insanity, Dr. Luke Jones, and the need to make her lovers bleed. Her chance for redemption comes in the form of a next-door neighbor, one senior master sergeant Monaghan. He’s sexy, dangerously alluring, and riddled with emotional issues from years of service. He’s also so damn grumpy.Their mission is simple: let go, start over, don't kill anyone, and pray that nobody resurrects their past."This book is phenomenal! My favorite read of 2015. Don't read anything else about it. Just buy it. Now." (Ella James, USA Today best-selling author) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stefanie Kay.

The Truthtellers: Stories of Success by Radical...

Freedom is a psychological accomplishment. Only truthfulness will set us free. Many of us already know that in our bones, but we don't always muster the courage to do it - or remember the incredible rewards! From the simple, intensely moving stories in the beginning to the profound and hilarious essays in the end, this audiobook is the best reminder of that reward you will ever come across. Honesty is the source of the ongoing renewal of love. We have the evidence. The Truthtellers: Stories of Success by Radically Honest People contains true stories from people who have shared honestly with people in their personal lives, and how it often leads to unpredicted love, freedom, creativity and joy. You will also find how this kind of honest self-expression leads to activism in the world community, and what we can do to co-create a wilder, more joyous life together. By the author of the best-selling Radical Honesty, Brad Blanton, Ph.D. Grace Llewelyn (The Teenage Liberation Handbook) says this about The Truthtellers: "The visceral descriptions of anxiety and other painful feelings that come in the process of telling the truth are a key strength of this wonderful book. People worry that Radical Honesty is too messy, too hurtful. Well, if you're doing it right, it is messy. And it does often hurt. But, as these stories here show beautifully, if you're willing to go through the mess and the hurt, the rewards are unbelievably, unpredictably rich. The kind of love that is possible after somebody tells the truth (in the way Brad and his colleagues define telling the truth), is a whole different animal - fresher, looser, deeper, sweeter, wilder, stronger - than what usually passes for love. I know because I have my own parallel stories to the ones here." 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dr. Brad Blanton, Alex Robert Nichols, Drea Good-Brown, Lakin Evans, Stefanie Eyestone Weir, Wendy Brown. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/020613/bk_acx0_020613_sample.mp3.

In The Functional Art, instructor Alberto Cairo explains how information graphics and visualizations are cognitive tools that extend our perception and how we can use them to see beyond lists of numbers, variables, and phenomena to identify patterns and trends that would be invisible otherwise. The book also includes a DVD-ROM containing 90+ minutes of video tutorials that expand on the concepts explained in the book as well as exercises that viewers can use to put their newly found skills to the test. Product Description Unlike any time before in our lives, we have access to vast amounts of free information. With the right tools, we can start to make sense of all this data to see patterns and trends that would otherwise be invisible to us. By transforming numbers into graphical shapes, we allow readers to understand the stories those numbers hide. In this practical introduction to understanding and using information graphics, you'll learn how to use data visualizations as tools to see beyond lists of numbers and variables and achieve new insights into the complex world around us. Regardless of the kind of data you're working with-business, science, politics, sports, or even your own personal finances-this book will show you how to use statistical charts, maps, and explanation diagrams to spot the stories in the data and learn new things from it. You'll also get to peek into the creative process of some of the world's most talented designers and visual journalists, including Condé Nast Traveler's John Grimwade, National Geographic Magazine's Fernando Baptista, The New York Times' Steve Duenes, The Washington Post's Hannah Fairfield, Hans Rosling of the Gapminder Foundation, Stanford's Geoff McGhee, and European superstars Moritz Stefaner, Jan Willem Tulp, Stefanie Posavec, and Gregor Aisch. The book also includes a DVD-ROM containing over 90 minutes of video lessons that expand on core concepts explained within the book and includes even more inspirational information graphics from the world's leading designers. The first book to offer a broad, hands-on introduction to information graphics and visualization, The Functional Art reveals: . Why data visualization should be thought of as "functional art" rather than fine art . How to use color, type, and other graphic tools to make your information graphics more effective, not just better looking . The science of how our brains perceive and remember information . Best practices for creating interactive information graphics . A comprehensive look at the creative process behind successful information graphics . An extensive gallery of inspirational work from the world's top designers and visual artists On the DVD-ROM: In this introductory video course on information graphics, Alberto Cairo goes into greater detail with even more visual examples of how to create effective information graphics that function as practical tools for aiding perception. You'll learn how to: incorporate basic design principles in your visualizations, create simple interfaces for interactive graphics, and choose the appropriate type of graphic forms for your data. Cairo also deconstructs successful information graphics from The New York Times and National Geographic magazine with sketches and images not shown in the book. Introduction - What Infographics and Visualizations Are PART 1 - Foundations Chapter 1 - Why Visualization - From Data to Wisdom Chapter 2 - Form and Function - Visualization as a Technology Chapter 3 - The Beauty Paradox - Art and Communication Efficacy Chapter 4 - Exposition, Exploration, And the Complexity Challenge PART 2 - History Chapter 5 - Here Be Dragons - On the Origins of Maps Chapter 6 - Lights of Reason - the Dawn of Scientific Illustration Chapter 7 - A Scottish Engineer And a Century of Revolutions - the History of Charts PART 3 - Cognition Chapter 8 - The Eye and the Visual Brain Chapter 9 - Non-sensed Perception Chapter 10 - Images in the Brain PART 4 - Practice Chapter 11 - The Creation Process in Infographics and Visualization Chapter 12 - Interactive Graphics and Visualization APPENDIX - Projects from leading practitioners in the field, explained in detailIn The Functional Art, instructor Alberto Cairo explains how information graphics and visualizations are cognitive tools that extend our perception and how we can use them to see beyond lists of numbers, variables, and phenomena to identify patterns and trends that would be invisible otherwise.

There is really nothing else to say. If you care about how visualization is used to communicate to people, this is the book for you. If you're a journalist, you need to read it. If you're an academic doing visualization research, you really, really need to read it. This is the stuff we've been missing in visualization for the last 25 years. Don't trust my opinion? Nick Diakopoulos thinks it will be the standard text for visual journalists going forward , and even Stephen Few likes it. " - Robert Kosara, EagerEyes
