(1 Ratings)
'One of the few books that is actually going to make a difference to your life'. As you read 'The Workplace Prince' you will feel empowered on the question of how to win back your sanity at work.... More > What sets this book apart is that it goes way beyond the twee, 'positive thinking' basics of so many publications of self-improvement. It has a mischievous bite. The arguments are partly influenced by ideas of shrewd statecraft from Machiavelli's classic, 'The Prince'. Therefore, it enjoys both high literary standards and mental rigor. Yet the style of the writing is also accessibly humorous; and its down-to-earth examples from everyday life are straightforward. The book can be enjoyed by anyone. The topic of how to swim safely in the shark tank of the modern workplace is discussed realistically and with healthy - and very, very funny - cynicism.< Less

eBook (ePub): $3.77
(1 Ratings)
'The book that scrutinizes the inscrutable Japanese.' Here is a fictional conspiracy thriller that explores some hard historical and political truths. The stylish story is about how Japan is... More > conducting undercover operations to abduct young children of Japanese-Western marriages, in order to create a live gene-pool. These children are needed as potential scientists for Japan's future program in atomic weapons - and for the clandestine development of her military technology.

A Coward In Modern China By Jon Lee Junior
eBook (ePub): $3.87
(1 Ratings)
“This is the story of a knowing scoundrel, and of what became of him.” The cult classic 'A Coward in Modern China' is a travel comedy, crime caper and adventure - based on the escapades... More > of a willful rascal: bogus professor Robert Runworth. Set largely in contemporary Beijing, and partly in California, it is raunchy and mischievous in its plot and action. Yet 'A Coward in Modern China' is also classically stylish ; and historically detailed in its account of life in China today. The book is always entertaining, by its exotic setting and fascinating insights as much as its farcical humor. At the standard book-length of 90-000 words, here is good old fashioned yarn in the tradition of the Flashman series. Indeed, Runworth is of mixed American and British ancestry. The narrator’s voice has both an up-to-date quality and the timeless feel of more classical literature.< Less
England's Rise and Decline: And What It Means, Today By Jon Lee Junior
eBook (ePub): $5.05
(1 Ratings)
"The read that exposes 'political correctness' for the fraud we suspected it to be." 'England's Rise and Decline' first reminds us what it was that once made Britain's economy the world's... More > super-leader. It then explains how England consolidated her position globally, in particular through her 'special relationship' with America. Her decline, meanwhile, is seen as a result of the 'Victorian hypocrisy' of the town-based, college-educated professional. That same middle-class sanctimony is the root of today's ultra-liberal 'p.c.' movements. Instructively detailed in its history, yet breathtakingly sweeping in its strategic scope, the book is always startling, original and interesting - even if you don't agree with its clearly explained viewpoints. A fun and readable - but gritty - work of history and political theory for the age of Trump and Brexit. Not a book for Ivory Tower socialists or for fans of Tony Blair.< Less
