Hope is an interesting thing. Some think it’s foolish, often misplaced, and at rarer times devastating; but more agree that hope is an integral and beautiful part of life, something that implicitly makes us human. We’re always hoping for something—for change, for improvement, or to find peace of mind amid life’s bustling demands. These things are often the subjects of our deepest desires, those things that can bring us true happiness. Fortunately for all of us who count ourselves among the hopeful, there has been plenty of wisdom bestowed from some of the greatest minds and noteworthy individuals throughout history, including: Albert Einstein Albert Camus Barack Obama Benjamin Franklin John Lennon George Bernard Shaw Abraham Lincoln And many others! The Little Red Book of Hope is an inspired collection of uplifting thoughts about what it is that allows us to persevere; about the primacy of the human spirit, and ultimately, about the redemptive power and vitality of hope.

Politics. It’s a word that carries a great deal of weight, and there have been many words spoken about it ever since human beings decided it might be a good idea to come down from the trees and form some kind of government. The Little Black Book of Political Wisdom is an engaging collection of the wisest, funniest, and most insightful words ever said about the world of politics. Gathered here are hundreds of quotations from statesmen and stateswomen, philosophers, foreign leaders, journalists, and other politically astute observers from ancient times to present day. Here are some examples: “Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, has always been the systematic organization of hatreds.” —Henry Adams “I have learned that one of the most important rules of politics is poise—which means looking like an owl after behaving like a jackass.” —Ronald Reagan “Politics are almost as exciting as war, and quite as dangerous. In war you can be killed once, but in politics many times.” —Sir Winston Churchill “We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.” —Aesop “Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.” —P. J. O’Rourke

Yvon Chouinard ist Unternehmer wider Willen. Eigentlich wollte er nur Klettern und Surfen – und trotzdem baute er ein Multimillionen-Dollar-Unternehmen auf. In seiner Jugend verbrachte er viel Zeit in der Natur und ließ sich von seinem Vater das Schmiedehandwerk beibringen. Als begeisterter Kletterer entwickelte und verkaufte er sein eigenes Equipment, dessen Design sich bis heute kaum verändert hat. Nach und nach erweiterte er die Palette seines Angebots, wobei er und seine Mitarbeiter keine besondere Strategie verfolgten: Jeder tat, was nötig war – und worauf er Lust hatte. Aus dieser Mentalität entstand im Lauf der Zeit das erfolgreiche Unternehmen Patagonia. In dieser neu überarbeiteten Auflage zum 10-jährigen Jubiläum der Originalausgabe zeigt Yvon Chouinard – legendärer Kletterer, Geschäftsmann, Umweltschützer und Gründer von Patagonia, Inc. – wie seine eigene Lebensphilosophie zum erfolgreichen Unternehmensleitbild wurde und was Patagonia zu einem der am meisten respektierten und umweltbewussten Unternehmen der Erde machte. Lass die Mitarbeiter surfen gehen ist ein Buch, das sowohl für Unternehmer als auch Outdoor-Enthusiasten gleichermaßen beeindruckend ist.

And leave your 4-weight home.” Sporting nicknames like the golden bonefish, carp are finally getting the attention they deserve from US flyrodders.

Covering everything from the approach, the presentation, how to effectively read both fish and water - even recipes for the best patterns to throw - Deeter introduces the most prolific freshwater gamefish to an audience finally ready to stalk them.
