“We attacked and ate a number of people because we were hungry.” Centuries ago, a man stood accused of thirteen ghastly murders. Brazenly, he declared his innocence, blaming his acts on a curse that transformed him into a ravenous wolf. It was a case that would shatter the blissful ignorance of human civility and pave the way to understanding modern serial killers. Today, Morgan Stern awakens to a morning worth sleeping through. A stupid prank, a humiliating video, and the aftermath of the ensuing bender ought to be penance enough for whatever karmic debt he owed the universe. But when one of the pranksters turns up brutally mutilated in the Virginian forests, clearing his name will mean stepping into a nightmare world of vengeance, violence, and creatures long thought to be mere fantasy...and all before his first cup of coffee too.

Now the shop is bound for Reality TV—but a murder may kill its reputation . . .

A man falls from the fourth floor. It is the only choice he has left to stop suffering. As he falls he announces his last wish, but then his body freezes a few centimetres above the ground. A thread of light descends from above him, he clings to it, and tries to escape from the dark well of depression that has swallowed him. Aldo Amedei is a successful journalist who has lost everything, even his dreams. The past is regret, the present is populated by monsters and ghosts, but he tries to follow that thread of light, that crazy desire that kept him alive, by running the New York marathon. He doesn’t even know why he thought of it; after all, he is a man who takes his car to drive a hundred metres. He starts running, like an escaped prisoner hunted by his nightmares. He falls, he gets up, he falls again and gets back on his feet. And each time it hurts more and more. But he doesn’t let go. For love, and with the love of Teresa, his young partner. Spitting out his soul along streets full of toil, angels and vultures, he comes back to life, to passion and to dreams. He’s helped by a doctor, a unexpected coach and a grandson even crazier than himself. He becomes another person, embedding people into his heart, along with laughter, surprises and new emotions. But his enemies don’t give up, they chase him, determined to bring him back into the black well of depression. There’s everything still to play for, as in the last challenge, between life and death: the 42 kilometres and 195 metres of the New York marathon. Against the wind and against everything. From Hell to Central Park.

To compete with today's increasing globalization and rapidly evolving technologies, individuals and organizations must take their ability to learn—the foundation for continuous improvement, operational excellence, and innovation—to a much higher level. In Learn or Die, Edward D. Hess combines recent advances in neuroscience, psychology, behavioral economics, and education with key research on high-performance businesses to create an actionable blueprint for becoming a leading-edge learning organization. Learn or Die examines the process of learning from an individual and an organizational standpoint. From an individual perspective, the book discusses the cognitive, emotional, motivational, attitudinal, and behavioral factors that promote better learning. Organizationally, Learn or Die focuses on the kinds of structures, culture, leadership, employee learning behaviors, and human resource policies that are necessary to create an environment that enables critical and innovative thinking, learning conversations, and collaboration. The volume also provides strategies to mitigate the reality that humans can be reflexive, lazy thinkers who seek confirmation of what they believe to be true and affirmation of their self-image. Exemplar learning organizations discussed include the secretive Bridgewater Associates, LP; Intuit, Inc.; United Parcel Service (UPS); W. L. Gore & Associates; and IDEO.
