Аннотация
Olaf, a Norseman in the eighth century A.D., flees his homeland after challenging the Norse god Odins right to a human sacrifice, travels to Constantinople to protect the Empress Irene Augusta from her son Constantine the Fifth and other enemies of the Eastern Roman Empire. From Byzantinum, to the pyramid tombs of Upper Egypt, Olaf becomes a traveling Christian who must reject the adulterous advances of Irene. Blinded as punishment for rejecting the Empress, Olafs adventures are woven within the intrigues of the Eastern Roman Empire. Olaf begins his recollections with a polar bear hunt, leading to his fame as a great hunter, to excavating his previous lifes gravesite to recover the Necklace.
The other half of the Necklace lies on a mummy reposing within a pharaohs tomb in ancient Egypt. The adventure novel shows how these two separate events tie together past and present lives.

If you want to accomplish what’s important to you, discipline and willpower won’t get you where you need to go. In this iconoclastic new book, Susan Fowler reveals compelling insights and actions to help you master and maintain your motivation.
Motivation is at the heart of everything you do and everything you want to do but don’t. Unfortunately, the ways we typically motivate ourselves don’t work. Relying on sheer determination eventually becomes exhausting – it’s not sustainable. And even setting goals can backfire – if you’re not setting them for the right reasons.
Susan Fowler says motivation is energy, and what matters is the quality, not the quantity. Traditional "motivators" such as fear, guilt, or the promise of a reward provide low-quality, short-term energy. Drawing on the latest empirical research, she proves that high-quality, optimal motivation is a skill that you can learn and apply.
Science tells us that satisfying three basic needs – for choice, connection, and...

Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli are fighting for recognition as the most successful and influential fashion designer in France, and their rivalry is already legendary. They oppose each other at every turn, in both their politics and their designs: Chanel’s are classic, elegant, and practical; Schiaparelli’s bold, experimental, and surreal.When Lily Sutter, a recently widowed young American teacher, visits her brother, Charlie, in Paris, he insists on buying her a couture dress—a Chanel. Lily, however, prefers a Schiaparelli. Charlie’s beautiful and socially prominent girlfriend soon begins wearing Schiaparelli’s designs as well, and much of Paris follows in her footsteps. Schiaparelli offers budding artist Lily a job at her store, and Lily finds herself increasingly involved with Schiaparelli and Chanel’s personal war. Their fierce competition reaches new and dangerous heights as the Nazis and the looming threat of World War II bear down on Paris. . . Скрыть Показать весь текст

At the height of the Cold War, two secretaries are pulled out of the typing pool at the CIA and given the assignment of a lifetime. Their mission: to smuggle Doctor Zhivago out of the USSR, where no one dare publish it, and help Pasternaks magnum opus make its way into print around the world.

Рисунки в книге выполнены самим автором и не менее знамениты, чем сама книга. Важно, что это не иллюстрации, а органическая часть произведения в целом: сам автор и герои сказки все время ссылаются на рисунки и даже спорят о них. Уникальные иллюстрации в «Маленьком принце» разрушают языковые барьеры, становятся частью универсального визуального лексикона, понятного каждому.
