Master The Game

Weak men are everywhere. They move about with their heads down and their shoulders slumped, scared of women, scared of risk, scared of facing the world at large. Their thoughts are dim, their chances dimmer. No matter what they think or what they do, success continues to elude.

Are you one of them?

William Hickling Prescott (May 4, 1796 – January 28, 1859) was an American historian and Hispanist, who is widely recognized by historiographers to have been the first American scientific historian. His works "The History of the Reign of Ferdinand and Isabella the Catholic" (1837), "The History of the Conquest of Mexico" (1843), "A History of the Conquest of Peru" (1847) and the unfinished "History of the Reign of Phillip II" (1856–1858) have become classic works in the field, and have had a great impact on the study of both Spain and Mesoamerica. Historians admire Prescott for his exhaustive, careful, and systematic use of archives, his accurate recreation of sequences of events, his balanced judgments and his lively writing style. Prescott started drafting the "History of the Conquest of Mexico" in October 1839. However, Prescott faced difficulties in writing the work which he had not encountered previously. There was relatively little scholarship on Aztec civilization, and . . .

Example in this ebook

A generation has passed away since “The Camp of Refuge” first issued from the press. Although published anonymously, it shows that its author had a very extensive knowledge of the history and topography of the Fen district.
The book, however, while it embodied much real history, was put forth with no higher pretension than that of a tale, whose characters were historic personages, and whose incidents occurred, in the main, during the Norman Conquest.
Knowing that this interesting book had become very scarce, and thinking that it would prove as acceptable to this, and perhaps to the next, generation as it did to the past—the present publishers determined to offer a new edition to the public; trusting at the same time that its contents will help to foster a loyalty and a love for our English nation.
But with a new edition some few comments appeared necessary; therefore Notes to the text, a vi short Appendix, and two Maps have been added, not with a view . . .

In the late 19th century the great young spiritual Guru and reformer, Swami Vivekananda, who stunned the world with his mystic wisdom, once said “If you give food to a poor person his hunger is satisfied temporarily because he is bound to be hungry again. If you give money to a needy person his problems are solved temporarily because he is bound to be in need again eventually. But if you give someone knowledge and wisdom it will be a permanent help and remain with them for the rest of their lives.­” Knowledge and wisdom not only helps mankind sail through our organic life which is temporary, but also helps us transit smoothly into the next life, in another dimension of reality, that which is eternal. Knowledge and wisdom can be the greatest gift one can give to another. It is like giving tools to distressed people so that they can handle their suffering and work on their karma. Giving is serving, also karma yoga, helping other souls of the same origin, sail through the collective . . .

This new (and substantially revised) edition of Conquest, Tribute and Trade: How the Quest for Precious Metals Gave Birth to Globalization explains the birth of globalization in a new way and addresses three interrelated economic issues that have been underanalyzed to date. First, how and why the discovery, extraction and distribution of precious metals -- gold, copper and, above all, silver -- enabled the closely-­related Portuguese, Spanish and Dutch to supersede the great Italian city-­states, check the powerful Ottoman Empire and overturn centuries of Muslim domination in Africa and Asia. Second, how and why the Europeans squandered much of the metallic wealth of Africa, the Americas and the Far East on inconclusive military affairs; exploited (and even destroyed) indigenous societies across the globe; and left behind a wake of east-­west animosities that has lasted for five centuries. And third, how and why a breakaway portion of the Spanish Netherlands, the Dutch Republic, . . .

THE MESSENGER.

It was long ago; it was in the year of grace one thousand and seventy, or four years after the battle of Hastings, which decided the right of power between the English and Norman nations, and left the old Saxon race exposed to the goadings of the sharp Norman lance, that a novice went on his way from the grand abbey of Crowland to the dependent house or succursal cell of Spalding,­[1] in the midst of the Lincolnshire fens. The young man carried a long staff or pole in his hand, with which he aided himself in leaping across the numerous ditches and rivulets that intersected his path, and in trying the boggy ground before he ventured to set his feet upon it. The upper end of his staff was fashioned like unto the staff of a pilgrim, but the lower end was armed with a heavy iron ferrule, from which projected sundry long steel nails or spikes. It was a fen-­pole,­[2] 2 such, I wist, as our fenners yet use in Holland, Lindsey, and Kesteven. In a strong and bold hand this . . .

No history of the conquest of Peru, founded on original documents, and aspiring to the credit of a classic composition, like the "Conquest of Mexico" by Solis, has been attempted, as far as I am aware, by the Spaniards. The English possess one of high value, from the pen of Robertson, whose masterly sketch occupies its due space in his great work on America. It has been my object to exhibit this same story, in all its romantic details; not merely to portray the characteristic features of the Conquest, but to fill up the outline with the coloring of life, so as to present a minute and faithful picture of the times. For this purpose, have, in the composition of the work, availed myself freely of my manuscript materials, allowed the actors to speak as much as possible for themselves, and especially made frequent use of their letters; for nowhere is the heart more likely to disclose itself, than in the freedom of private correspondence. I have made liberal extracts from these . . .

When Othniel comes home from battling the Canaanites with Joshua, he hopes to marry his treasured Acsah, but her father, Caleb, sends Othniel away and tries to arrange a marriage for Acsah with a prominent Israelite. Caleb makes defeating the city of Kiriath Sepher the price of her hand. Othniel must come up with a clever plan to gain the city. Caleb's reaction puts the couple in desolate territory. Only God can give Othniel and Acsah the springs they need to survive—springs of water, of forgiveness, and of the faith they will need for Othniel to be the first judge of Israel.

“Should be read by every parent, teacher, minister, and Congressman in the land.­”—*The Atlantic* In The Conquest of Happiness, first published by Liveright in 1930, iconoclastic philosopher Bertrand Russell attempted to diagnose the myriad causes of unhappiness in modern life and chart a path out of the seemingly inescapable malaise so prevalent even in safe and prosperous Western societies. More than eighty years later, Russell’s wisdom remains as true as it was on its initial release. Eschewing guilt-­based morality, Russell lays out a rationalist prescription for living a happy life, including the importance of cultivating interests outside oneself and the dangers of passive pleasure. In this new edition, best-­selling philosopher Daniel C. Dennett reintroduces Russell to a new generation, stating that Conquest is both “a fascinating time capsule” and “a prototype of the flood of self-­help books that have more recently been published, few of them as well worth reading today as . . .

When I began this Translation, more than two years ago, I had no intention of publishing it; but as the work progressed, it occurred to me that Arrian is an Author deserving of more attention from the English-­speaking races than he has yet received. No edition of his works has, so far as I am aware, ever appeared in England, though on the Continent many have been published. In the following Translation I have tried to give as literal a rendering of the Greek text as I could without transgressing the idioms of our own language. My theory of the duty of a Translator is, to give the ipsissima verba of his Author as nearly as possible, and not put into his mouth words which he never used, under the mistaken notion of improving his diction or his way of stating his case. It is a comparatively easy thing to give a paraphrase of a foreign work, presenting the general drift of the original; but no one, unless he has himself tried it, can understand the difficulty of translating a . . .
