When he died he feared he had been forgotten... …He was dead wrong! Bela Lugosi is considered one of the greatest actors of the twentieth-century... but you'd never know it based upon the way he was treated by the Hollywood executives he worked for. Shut out, ignored, and hideously underpaid, he could have easily given up, walked away from show business, and no one would have blamed him for doing so.
But he didn't. Now a body of his work exists that is celebrated decades after his death... because he worked hard and never gave up. Bela Lugosi persevered in the face of tremendous adversity. Can Bela's story inspire you to keep going in your quest to make the world a better place? In Reign of the Vampire: A Tribute to the Perseverance of Bela Lugosi, Leo Wiltshire (M.
A. in Organizational Leadership) examines the struggles and triumphs of Lugosi's life in order to flesh out one of the most inspirational tales of determination ever told.

Book Praise & Reviews ""As a how-to guide, this book contains everything you may need to know to turn your passions into profits."" Bill Bartmann (Billionaire entrepreneur, author, speaker, educator) Read & Give Program A portion of the sale of this book is donated to charity. Book Description Are you unhappy in your job? Are you tired of living paycheck to paycheck and feel like you just don't have enough money, skills, or education to turn your life around? Even if you're not sure you know what it is you like to do, you can change your life and get rich doing it, says entrepreneur Duane Harden in his wise and entertaining new book, 5 Easy Steps to Financial Freedom: Do What You Love & Get Rich Doing It. Turning your passion into a profitable business is easy, fast, and fun, says Harden, and you can become rich in just five easy steps. First, start by saying yes to financial freedom. Attitude is everything and as the Law of Attraction states, what you put out into the universe is often what you attract. If you imagine yourself financially secure and happy, you will be. Imagining a new life for yourself is the inspiration you need to go out and do the concrete things to turn your dreams into a reality. Conversationally written and filled with humorous drawings, helpful worksheets, and key tips, 5 Easy Steps to Financial Freedom also offers a 90-day action plan that includes blueprints for success that Harden himself used to build his wealth. His own journey included the purchase of numerous real-estate properties, opening a restaurant, starting a music company, and much more. Harden gives you "Life Assignments" that get you thinking and acting differently. Beware of what he calls the "crabs in a pot" mentality, where everyone is trying to pull everyone else down in order to struggle to the top. Instead, he advises, think positively. Stay away from the naysayers and feed your dream.
Soon you will realize that your inner life is reflected in your outer life. Harden helps you to discover the real you, what you want, and how much money you want to be there for you now and in the future.
He explains how the real difference between rich people and poor people is fear and an unwillingness to keep an open mind to new opportunities. Rich people are not afraid to take risks, and well-planned risks almost always pay off. Success, he reminds you, is your birthright and it's your job to claim it. Review your credit and your financial house. Clean up the clutter in your life, whether it is the wrong way of thinking or a messy desk. Discover what really makes you tick because when you love what you do it's never really work, and when passion is present the money will miraculously follow. Keep daily positive reminders taped where you can see them, or even have a vision board filled with photographs of where you want to be in life. Write your resignation letter to your boss, but don't send it yet. Just the act of writing it puts you in the right frame of mind for moving on to something much better. "You are what you think and will become what you dream," says Harden. You'll learn to be a PIG (passive income generator) Farmer, which requires little work but makes you tons of money. 5 Easy Steps to Financial Freedom shows you how go from rags to riches and is understandable and easy to read. This invaluable guide will change your life!
Autobiografia Nuno Gomesa, nurka z RPA, rekordzisty świata w nurkowaniu głębinowym.
Jeden człowiek, dwa rekordy, dziesiątki tysięcy godzin spędzonych pod wodą. Nurkowanie, w którym liczy się perfekcyjny plan i maksymalna osiągalna dla człowieka głębokość. Nurkowanie, które jest sensem życia. Przez biografię Nuna Gomesa przewijają się najciekawsze postaci nurkowego światka – niedościgły Sheck Exley, wytrwały Jim Bowden, nieustraszony John Bennett – ale też znakomici polscy nurkowie, dla których udział w projektach Nuna był początkiem ich własnej kariery nurkowej.
Narracja autora zabiera czytelnika do zmagającego się z AIDS i przemocą RPA, do będącego niegdyś kwitnącym ośrodkiem nurkowym Dahabu i do Lizbony z czasów jego dzieciństwa, pozwalając zrozumieć drogę, która zaprowadziła Nuna Gomesa do ustanowienia dwóch światowych rekordów głębokości.
