Who's on Worst?: The Lousiest Players, Biggest ...

A hilarious celebration of the worst in baseball history: the boneheads, cheats, jerks and losers who make the grand old game so fun Libraries and Internet sites are filled to groaning with debates about who the best ballplayers of all time were - but how many times can you argue about Mantle vs. Mays? Since baseball is a game of failure, it's much more fun to dive into the fray and explore baseball's worst: Who was the lousiest pitcher of all-time? The biggest goat? The most despicable owner? The greatest cheater? Filip Bondy wields formidable research, advanced sabermetrics and his considerable wit to provide this indispensable guide to the less glorious side of our national pastime. Each chapter is filled with rich and colorful stories of the players unfortunate enough to be chosen in each category and is followed by a handy top-10 list, such as Most Overpaid Yankees. From a delightful survey of batters who fell below the dreaded "Mendoza Line" to a rundown of managers who had long careers distinguished by relentless losing to a roster of players who took steroids but still stunk, Who's on Worst? is a thoroughly entertaining portrait of the personalities who deserve their place in baseball history as much as the immortals. 1.

Eddie Royce is an up-and-coming science fiction writer with a terrible secret: he cheats. He knew he'd get caught, of course. Eventually. But not like this. When disaster finally strikes, it strikes big, and Eddie is confronted by the worst person imaginable: his idol, the SF master, Chester Blackwood. To Eddie's great surprise, however, Blackwood has secrets of his own, and instead of outing him, the master storyteller quickly embroils Eddie in a real-life mystery of time travel, beautiful women, and Hollywood gangsters. But then Blackwood disappears, so if Eddie wants to keep both the fame and the girl, he's going to have to do the one thing he's never been able to get right before: plot his way out of a crisis. And the stakes if he fails? The very future of science fiction itself. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steven Jay Cohen.

In this new military sci-fi thriller from the Nebula Award-winning author of Cold Welcome, Admiral Kylara Vatta is back - with a vengeance. Ky beats sabotage, betrayal, and the unforgiving elements to lead a ragtag group of crash survivors to safety on a remote arctic island. And she cheats death after uncovering secrets someone is hell-bent on protecting. But the worst is far from over when Ky discovers the headquarters of a vast conspiracy against her family and the heart of the planet's government itself. With their base of operations breached, the plotters have no choice but to gamble everything on an audacious throw of the dice. Even so, the odds are stacked against Ky. When her official report on the crash and its aftermath goes missing - along with the men and women she rescued - Ky realizes that her mysterious enemies are more powerful and dangerous than she imagined. Now, targeted by faceless assassins, Ky and her family - along with her fiancé, Rafe - must battle to reclaim the upper hand and unmask the lethal cabal closing in on them with murderous intent.

True Ghost Stories and Hauntings, Volume IV is the fourth in the extremely popular series of books featuring true ghost stories and hauntings by Simon B. Murik, who is the son of a long line of mediums and sensitives. Many of the stories come from his own experiences while others have been contributed by family members and those who have shared their paranormal experiences. Here is a sampling of stories in this volume: A college student takes a house-sitting job for one night. The man who owns the house gives her strict instructions not to go upstairs because his sick wife shouldn't be disturbed. But when she hears the strange noises coming from upstairs, her curiosity gets the best of her and she does go upstairs. What she finds will totally creep you out! A man cheats on his wife and soon finds out she is sick with terminal cancer. He stops cheating to be the good husband until her death. The man starts up again with the girlfriend who eventually dies in a plane crash after receiving mysterious messages from the other side! When a husband and wife at the beach are distracted by their own arguing, the worst thing imaginable happens; their young child wonders into the water and drowns. Of course they feel terrible, but their guilt is not the only thing that punishes them. In "Beyond the Call of Duty," the son of an US soldier in Iraq speaks with an imaginary friend who tells him important information about his father's wellbeing. As it turns out, the imaginary friend was a best friend of the father and was killed 30 days prior. If you enjoy ghost stories and hearing about paranormal experiences, you will love this book.

The Real Reason the Narcissist Cheated: Transce...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Many people are cheated on by the narcissist. You might think at the beginning of the relationship, in the romance and love bombing stage, that you will be immune to the narcissist cheating on you. He will not admit that he has cheated on other partners that came before you. You have no knowledge of his history before you met him, so you have no predisposed idea that he might cheat on you at all. So, you proceed with the relationship with the narcissist, as though you have met your twin flame, your soulmate, and your night in shining armor. He makes all these lifelong promises of romance, a perfect future, and just the two of you being together. You seem to have a relationship that, although not perfect, might at least seem palatable. Sometimes, the narcissist is everything you imagined in your fantasies of what a relationship should look like. Other times, he is your worst nightmare. Still, the relationship marches on. Then, seemingly out of the blue, the narcissist cheats. You don’t realize it, but all the while throughout the whole relationship, the narcissist was cheating. He was doing little things here and there that might have given you clues that he was cheating. He covered many of them up. He couldn’t let on to you that he was cheating, or that he was grooming another mate, or that he was looking for your replacement all this while. After all, he views himself as a "good guy", and nothing you do or say will change his view of himself.  The truth of the matter is that the narcissist cannot be monogamous. There are many reasons that he cannot be monogamous with you. Almost none of these reasons have to do with how smart, pretty, and successful you are. It has less to do with who you are and how well you are doing, and more to do with the way that the narcissist is wired and how he interacts with his environment.  1. Language: English.
