Many authors have seen the Great War through the eyes of their own country. Senor Ibanez seems to see it through eyes that are world-wide in their sweep and with a mind that is very human and pitiful in its comprehension of the suffering and the heroism. 'The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse' is a great novel, one of the three of four outstanding novels of the war. It is rich and varied in scene, human in its characterizations, interesting throughout, and, above all, refreshingly straightforward and conclusive on the subject of the Germans and their methods of warfare.

It's commonly known that there is more to investment and wealth management than what is consistently recycled by advisors and the media, but the way forward still seems shrouded. Robert J. Klosterman, CFP, a wealth advisor with forty years' industry experience, lifts the apocalyptic veil of deception so that investors can fend off the four horsemen-inflation, volatility, groupthink, and global displacements and transformation-attempting to drive them toward financial self-destruction. Klosterman's book provides the weapons to fight these forces of evil by providing insight, perspective, and innovative strategies for managing high-end money portfolios. Ignoring the market's constant media coverage, this hard-hitting guide focuses on the notion that investing is really about keeping the four horsemen at bay and meeting personal, family, and philanthropic objectives. Investing is serious business and needs a serious approach that looks beyond the public markets to design relevant portfolios that meet short- and long-term goals in today's rapidly shifting financial world. Using a modern, fresh, and investigative approach, Klosterman delves into the concepts and inner workings of the world of financial advice and reveals exactly how you can battle the enemy and build a successful portfolio.

Now Missy wields a new kind of blade—a big, brutal sword that can cut down anyone and anything in her path. But it’s with this weapon in her hand that Missy learns something that could help her triumph over her own pain: control.

The science is overwhelming; the facts are in. The planet is heating up at an alarming rate and the results are everywhere to be seen. Yet, as time runs out, climate progress is blocked by the men who are profiting from the burning of the planet: energy moguls like the Koch brothers and Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson. Powerful politicians like Senators Mitch McConnell and Jim Inhofe, who receive massive contributions from the oil and coal industries. Most of these men are too intelligent to truly believe that climate change is not a growing crisis. And yet they have put their profits and careers ahead of the health and welfare of the world’s population?and even their own children and grandchildren. How do they explain themselves to their offspring, to the next generations that must deal with the environmental havoc that these men have wreaked? Horsemen of the Apocalypse takes a personal look at this global crisis, literally bringing it home.
