Mein Kampf (Mein Kampf 1&2) (German Edition By:Adolf Hitler

Mein Kampf (Mein Kampf 1&2) (German Edition  By:Adolf Hitler | Ebook Shop | Scoop.it

ADOLF HITLER
MEIN KAMPF
Zwei Bände in einem Band
Ungekürzte Ausgabe

Adolf Hitler - Mein Kampf
Language: German

The angry ranting of an obscure, small-party politician, the first volume of Mein Kampf was virtually ignored when it was originally published in 1925. Likewise the second volume, which appeared in 1926. The book details Hitler's childhood, the "betrayal" of Germany in World War I, the desire for revenge against France, the need for lebensraum for the German people, and the means by which the National Socialist party can gain power. It also includes Hitler's racist agenda and his glorification of the "Aryan" race. The few outside the Nazi party who read it dismissed it as nonsense, not believing that anyone could--or would--carry out its radical, terrorist programs. As Hitler and the Nazis gained power, first party members and then the general public were pressured to buy the book. By the time Hitler became chancellor of the Third Reich in 1933, the book stood atop the German bestseller lists. Had the book been taken seriously when it was first published, perhaps the 20th century would have been very different.

Beyond the anger, hatred, bigotry, and self-aggrandizing, Mein Kampf is saddled with tortured prose, meandering narrative, and tangled metaphors (one person was described as "a thorn in the eyes of venal officials"). That said, it is an incredibly important book. It is foolish to think that the Holocaust could not happen again, especially if World War II and its horrors are forgotten. As an Amazon.com reader has pointed out, "If you want to learn about why the Holocaust happened, you can't avoid reading the words of the man who was most responsible for it happening." Mein Kampf, therefore, must be read as a reminder that evil can all too easily grow. --Sunny Delaney

The Worst Day Of My Life, So Fa By:M.A. Harper

The Worst Day Of My Life, So Fa  By:M.A. Harper | Ebook Shop | Scoop.it

“Readers… will find themselves laughing out loud and moved to tears. An immense and original talent.” –The TIMES-PICAYUNE (New Orleans)
IT’S A GOOD DAY WHEN YOU DON'T RESORT TO RAT POISON… M.A. Harper’s acerbic wit offers a wickedly entertaining seat on the always-wild Alzheimer’s ride. Fighting her way back to sleep after her mother’s latest Alzheimer’s-driven 3:00 a.m. ramble, Jeanne Roth reminds herself: Tomorrow will be here soon, and it’s going to be just like today was, like something out of Lewis Carroll on crystal meth.

Capturing the hilarity and heartbreak of those who've lost their minds to Alzheimer’s, and the tensile strength of mind required of their caregivers, The Worst Day of My Life, So Far is a thoughtful, powerful book about doing the laundry and going to bed content in the knowledge that you have once again made it through the day without, as Jeanne says, having “yet poisoned her, nor put my head in the oven.”

By turns sharp and poignant, Harper is at her most deliciously acidic rehashing the awkward adolescence familiar to most of us, fearlessly probing the questionable decisions of our twenties, and scathingly exposing the failures of our thirties. She lovingly relates Jeanne’s touching memories of her once-beautiful and dauntless mother as Jeanne attempts to reconcile them with the woman who no longer remembers how to use a telephone or toilet tissue.

As always, Harper handles the situation with wit and grace, copious amounts of chocolate ice cream – and bourbon.

WHO WILL LIKE IT: Fans of STILL ALICE and the Julie Christie movie AWAY FROM HER, as well as books like THE HELP and SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK--because we're talking funny AND touching here. Also fans of well-written literary fiction that's also unpretentious, down-to-earth, sometime a little outrageous, and makes you laugh out loud.

Weaving Made Easy: How to Weave for Beginner By:Petra Pulido

Weaving Made Easy: How to Weave for Beginner  By:Petra Pulido | Ebook Shop | Scoop.it

Your One-Stop Beginner’s Guide to Weaving

If you are a beginner when it comes to weaving, then you have reached the perfect eBook to guide you through the learning process. The eBook is well- thought out and laid out that it is so easy for beginners to learn and follow the various techniques in weaving. Further, weaving is an age old practice with its specific jargons; you will also be guided through the various meanings of weaving words to help you understand the processes.

What are you going to get from this Weaving Made Easy: How to Weave for Beginners eBook? Here are the benefits that you will reap from reading this book:

* First and foremost, learning weaving is not just all about jumping right away into steps and processes. You will be guided on the various and important weaving jargon for easy transitioning.

* Then you will be treated to the various ways and techniques of weaving, just to give you a broad overview of what type of fabric you want to create after. Like, are you looking for something thick and sturdy or do you want something glossy and satin like? All this you can learn in this book.

* Then, of course a beginner’s guide to weaving is never complete with a few examples of how to begin weaving. What I love about this book is that, you do not need to buy weaving machines right away. It teaches you how to make do-it-yourself looms just with the use of cheap materials or materials readily available in your home.

* There are over three ways of DIY weaving included in this book and for each weaving instruction you can spin it to make a variety of other items. For example, the steps and process for making glass coasters can be used to make doilies, belts, and even a purse.

So when it comes to a beginner’s guide to weaving, look no further!

Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook: Eat Like You Give a F*c By:Thug Kitchen

Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook: Eat Like You Give a F*c  By:Thug Kitchen | Ebook Shop | Scoop.it

#1 New York Times Bestseller

Thug Kitchen started their wildly popular web site to inspire people to eat some Goddamn vegetables and adopt a healthier lifestyle. Beloved by Gwyneth Paltrow ("This might be my favorite thing ever") and named Saveur's Best New Food blog of 2013--with half a million Facebook fans and counting--Thug Kitchen wants to show everyone how to take charge of their plates and cook up some real f*cking food.


Yeah, plenty of blogs and cookbooks preach about how to eat more kale, why ginger fights inflammation, and how to cook with microgreens and nettles. But they are dull or pretentious as hell--and most people can't afford the hype.


Thug Kitchen lives in the real world. In their first cookbook, they're throwing down more than 100 vegan recipes for their best-loved meals, snacks, and sides for beginning cooks to home chefs. (Roasted Beer and Lime Cauliflower Tacos? Pumpkin Chili? Grilled Peach Salsa? Believe that sh*t.) Plus they're going to arm you with all the info and techniques you need to shop on a budget and go and kick a bunch of ass on your own.
This book is an invitation to everyone who wants to do better to elevate their kitchen game. No more ketchup and pizza counting as vegetables. No more drive-thru lines. No more avoiding the produce corner of the supermarket. Sh*t is about to get real.

To Travel Hopelessly: Five Years of Teaching English as a Foreign Language (The Burnout Trilogy Book 1)

To Travel Hopelessly: Five Years of Teaching English as a Foreign Language (The Burnout Trilogy Book 1) | Ebook Shop | Scoop.it

In 1995, after a year of aimless wandering, a broke, parasite-infested backpacker answered an ad in a newspaper in Bangkok and inadvertently became English Teacher X, working, in the next five years, in seven different cities in five different countries.

From the neon-and-vomit-laden streets of Seoul to historic beer-soaked Prague, from a tropical island paradise in Thailand to an industrial hellhole of Post-Soviet Russia, English Teacher X describes, in raw and violent imagery, the life of an English teacher overseas, encountering dishonest and exploitative employers, degenerate colleagues, corrupt police, gold-hearted prostitutes and cold-hearted "English groupies", with drugs and alcohol for all, while questing in vain for the Authentic Cultural Experience.

English Teacher X's world serves as a cautionary tale for young people going overseas to teach, or a titillating taste of the many perks of the darker side of English teaching.

Not Without My Sister: The True Story of Three Girls Violated and Betrayed by Those They Trusted

Not Without My Sister: The True Story of Three Girls Violated and Betrayed by Those They Trusted | Ebook Shop | Scoop.it



The bestselling, devastating account of three sisters torn apart, abused and exploited at the hands of a community that robbed them of their childhood. It reveals three lives, separate but entwined, that have experienced unspeakable horror, unrelenting loyalty and unforgettable courage.

From as early as three years old, Juliana, Celeste and Kristina were treated as sexual beings by their 'guardians' in the infamous religious cult known as the Children of God. They were made to watch and mimic orgies, received love letters and sexual advances from men old enough to be their grandfather, and were forced into abusive relationships. They were denied access to formal schooling, had to wander the streets begging for money, and were mercilessly beaten for 'crimes' as unpredictable as reading an encyclopaedia.

Finally, unable to live with the guilt of what had happened to her children, their mother escaped with Kristina, cutting herself off from her remaining children in a bid to save at least one child. Desperate to save her sisters, Kristina eventually returned to the place of her torture to free Celeste. Years later, Juliana found the courage to escape, knowing that the child she was carrying would be subjected to the same fate if she did not.

Now the three sisters have finally come together to reveal in full and horrific detail their existence within the Children of God cult. Their stories reveal a community spread throughout the world and its legacy of anorexia, depression, drug abuse, suicide and even murder. Lives are ripped apart and painstakingly mended with a shared strength that finally enabled the sisters to free themselves from the shadows of their past.

Petty: The Biograph By:Warren Zanes

Petty: The Biograph  By:Warren Zanes | Ebook Shop | Scoop.it

An exhilarating and intimate account of the life of music legend Tom Petty, by an accomplished writer and musician who toured with Petty

No one other than Warren Zanes, rocker and writer and friend, could author a book about Tom Petty that is as honest and evocative of Petty's music and the remarkable rock and roll history he and his band helped to write.

Born in Gainesville, Florida, with more than a little hillbilly in his blood, Tom Petty was a Southern shit kicker, a kid without a whole lot of promise. Rock and roll made it otherwise. From meeting Elvis, to seeing the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, to producing Del Shannon, backing Bob Dylan, putting together a band with George Harrison, Dylan, Roy Orbison, and Jeff Lynne, making records with Johnny Cash, and sending well more than a dozen of his own celebrated recordings high onto the charts, Tom Petty's story has all the drama of a rock and roll epic. Now in his mid-sixties, still making records and still touring, Petty, known for his reclusive style, has shared with Warren Zanes his insights and arguments, his regrets and lasting ambitions, and the details of his life on and off the stage.

This is a book for those who know and love the songs, from "American Girl" and "Refugee" to "Free Fallin'" and "Mary Jane's Last Dance," and for those who want to see the classic rock and roll era embodied in one man's remarkable story. Dark and mysterious, Petty manages to come back, again and again, showing us what the music can do and where it can take us.

Every single food we buy at the supermarket has at least one additive to preserve it better, to make it look better, or to taste better. But luckily in the last few years, you can see that many people have stopped eating whatever, whenever and began to become more interested in where their food comes from, how it is being produced, what it contains, and what health benefits it has. This has led to a movement that is trending more and more called clean eating.

New York Times Bestseller

A grand tour of the science of cooking explored through popular American dishes, illustrated in full color.


Ever wondered how to pan-fry a steak with a charred crust and an interior that's perfectly medium-rare from edge to edge when you cut into it? How to make homemade mac 'n' cheese that is as satisfyingly gooey and velvety-smooth as the blue box stuff, but far tastier? How to roast a succulent, moist turkey (forget about brining!)—and use a foolproof method that works every time?


As Serious Eats's culinary nerd-in-residence, J. Kenji López-Alt has pondered all these questions and more. In The Food Lab, Kenji focuses on the science behind beloved American dishes, delving into the interactions between heat, energy, and molecules that create great food. Kenji shows that often, conventional methods don’t work that well, and home cooks can achieve far better results using new—but simple—techniques. In hundreds of easy-to-make recipes with over 1,000 full-color images, you will find out how to make foolproof Hollandaise sauce in just two minutes, how to transform one simple tomato sauce into a half dozen dishes, how to make the crispiest, creamiest potato casserole ever conceived, and much more.
