DescriptionThe solos in this collection present a myriad of moods on the guitar. They were written to be very expressive, contemplative pieces which could be performed in a variety of secular and sacred settings. Most of them are from three solo collections previously released, entitled Guitar Meditations (MB22029), Guitar Airs and Ballads (MB22039) and Timeless Solos for Guitar (MB22041). Some of the pieces were scored for 7-string guitar; however, they can also be performed on 6-string guitar—indicated are the alternate 6-string pedal tones in the tablature part. Many of the solos use a cross-picking technique alternating higher position closed strings and open strings, resulting in a ´´harp-like” effect. The included tablature parts allow for a clear presentation of this effect and clarify where on the fingerboard these passages should be played. A number of the pieces are in Dropped D tuning, highlighting the rich resonance that tuning gives the instrument. All of these solos may be performed by the classical or fingerstyle guitarist or, as originally performed, with a pick. Explore the diverse moods presented in this collection and make full use of the many avenues of expression offered in these pieces! A companion dual CD is available with all 25 solos included.

The Image of Leadership is the result of Sylvie di Giusto´s journey through two career paths: one in the field of human resources, the other as a professional image consultant. The title reflects the reality that true leadership manifests itself in ways that are both seen and unseen. This book will take you step by step through the development of your professional imprint. The focus will be on all of those things that people perceive about you, with an emphasis on your appearance and your image. By all means, it´s not a how-to book, because there simply is no one-size-fits-all formula for a look of leadership. Instead this book provides you with a deep understanding of the most important concepts to achieve your image of leadership. Because: You have to create your own professional imprint, which is true to your personality and which works for the duration of your long career. You have to appear confident, authentic, professional, and respectful to be perceived as a leader - no matter your height, weight, color, age, or gender. You have to look like a leader long before you are one. You have only seven seconds to create an imprint of leadership. You have to show people your leadership every day, consistently. You and only you can choose to present yourself as a leader or not. This book is written to be entertaining for leaders at all levels. You´ll encounter hard data drawn from Sylvie´s research, and she shares countless stories from her 20 years of experience in corporations around the world while proving her theories with people who are currently in the public eye. There is no other book that encourages you to learn about your image from famous politicians, CEOs, and pop stars at the same time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rosemary Benson.

First published in Germany in 1980, British historian Ian Kershaw´s The "Hitler Myth" is recognized as one of the most important books ever written about Adolf Hitler and the Nazi State. Kershaw wanted to focus on what he called the "history of everyday life"; and so investigated the attitude of the German public to Hitler at the time, rather than looking at the dictator from the perspective of those in positions of power. He was intrigued to find out how someone like Hitler could have become such a powerful figure during his rise, and why so many Germans appeared to permit the brutality of the Nazi regime. Kershaw´s work popularized the concept of the "Hitler myth" and his book was published in numerous editions and translated into many different languages. It has proved to be a useful tool for analyzing not only the Nazis, but also other movements or regimes with similar leadership cults, such as the Stalin-era Soviet Union. 1. Language: English.

This Stop Emotional Eating guided self-hypnosis program was designed to assist the listener in identifying and releasing emotional triggers related to emotional eating, as well as creating new, positive behavior patterns to deal with those emotions. In addition, this program is designed to assist the listener in gaining a positive, confident sense of self in relation to the body. The hypnosis induction features isochronic tones which are a form of brainwave entrainment to help achieve deeper relaxation. Also included within this program is an extended affirmations track, a meditation track (partly guided, with ancient Solfeggio frequencies) and as an extra bonus, an exciting and powerful drum journey, bodywork track. Using an alternate induction, hypnotic drum beats and posthypnotic suggestions related to mind integration, this drum journey is designed to get the listener out of their brain and back into their body. Many find this useful for releasing energy blocks, healing and integrating the mind, body and spirit. Written & narrated by Anna Thompson, MA, MHP, LMHC, Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist.
