Before I tell you what 30 Days to Diamond is about, let me tell you what it isn´t. This book is not the next three-dollar booklet promising you all the ´´tips and tricks´´ nobody else knows. Any book that makes such a claim is ridiculous, misleading, and a waste of time. 30 Days to Diamond is 143 minutes worth of specialized teaching, produced by a Master Tier player on both EUW and EUNE servers. It teaches all technical, strategic, and psychological aspects of the game, from A to Z, in a very unique and effective manner. If there´s anything I´ve learned after mentoring over 60 silver and bronze players, it´s that anyone, and I mean anyone, has the potential to become a Diamond level player within a very short time, even if still new to League. In spite of all the information available online, the majority of League´s community still struggle to achieve their goals in Ranked. Nowadays, there are so many Twitch streams, YouTube channels, and websites dedicated to teaching the game, and yet the results are just not there for the majority. Improving from Silver to Gold is nice, but this is so much less than what progress should look like for most. Being a teacher in real life, the question I got absorbed in was: What prevents people from mastering the game to the level they want, despite them having access to all the information they need? We are talking about hundreds of thousands of players that play ranked. That´s a lot of people. Why is it that so many folks may spend weeks, and even months, watching Challenger streams, play League for 5+ hours a day, and still not improve at the rate they could? This inefficiency is not due to the people playing the game, or the information they learn from. It all has to do with how effective learning takes place. A person´s ability to learn from a piece of information is enhanced only to the degree to which they can relate to it at that specific moment. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan McDermott.

As a Master Tier player on both EUW and EUNE servers that cares deeply about the state of League of Legends, I had enough of the lack of high quality educational material about the game. So about a year ago, I sat down and wrote what turned out to be the best-selling book about improving at League of Legends on Amazon - 30 Days to Diamond. I used my experience as a real life teacher and a high elo player to create the most detailed, effective and complete source of game knowledge out there. The impact 30 Days to Diamond had on hundreds of players was enormous and I have summarized the results they achieved in the preface of this book. The book made a bold promise - that no matter what level of skill you are currently at, as long as you apply the principles it teaches, you will be able to reach Diamond Five rank within 30 days of playing on a fresh account. Mind you, that´s regardless of whether you started as a Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum or a completely new player that has just installed the game. The reason why the book delivered on its promise for so many people was simple. I was aware that no matter what your starting point is, as long as you fill in the knowledge gaps that you have about the game and you apply the proven principles that my book teaches, you will completely transform as a player over a short period of time. There are no ifs, buts or shoulds - facts are facts and results are results. Well, due to multiple requests from dozens of people online, I was motivated to roll up my sleeves again for Season Seven. So I wrote the book you are about to listen to next - 21 Days to Diamond and Beyond. It is a longer and more detailed, improved, enriched and polished version of 30 Days to Diamond and it has been created specifically for Season Seven. Please don´t get intimidated by the length of it - I assure you that it is worth your time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin F. Spalding.

When Skip Granger, the assistant coach for the Washington Redskins, first sees Jesse Smoke, she is on the beach in Belize. And she has just thrown a regulation football a mile. Granger knows that Smoke´s talent is unprecedented for a woman and nearly unparalleled among men. As Granger observes her throughout a season as quarterback for the Washington Divas of the Independent Women´s Football League, he decides to sign her to the Redskins, even as he faces losing his job and credibility. As the first woman on a major NFL team, Jesse Smoke´s astounding success places her in the tradition of athletes like Jackie Robinson and Joe Louis. Yet Smoke is quickly faced with her own battles, including the clamor of the press, the violence of her teammates and the institutional resistance that seeks to keep football in the hands of men. While a female quarterback in the NFL is a fantasy at the moment, Robert Bausch´s genius as a writer makes it a highly engaging reality on the page. Fans of football - and listeners who were just waiting for a player worth getting excited about - will relish Jesse Smoke´s journey to the big leagues. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Christy.

Includes Wilson´s Fourteen Points, inaugural addresses, and his war message to Congress for World War I. As one of the most influential men of the 20th century, there is no shortage of adjectives to use when describing Woodrow Wilson´s two terms as president of the United States. Wilson was a pioneer of the Progressive movement both before and during his presidency, becoming a populist champion a generation before Franklin Roosevelt´s New Deal. He ran for reelection by touting his neutrality during World War I, only to lead his nation into the war and become the architect of a world body that would lead to greater inter-connection among nations. Today Wilson is best remembered for his Fourteen Points, one of the most forceful arguments for an idealistic foreign policy in American history, and his fight for the League of Nations, which set the model for today´s United Nations. Wilson´s presidency was monumentally consequential, but it is not without its critics, nor is the man himself. Even as Wilson has come to be viewed as one of America´s greatest presidents, perception of Wilson and his administration as racist have also taken hold. Despite being one of the early 20th century´s most forceful proponents of a globalized foreign policy, Wilson´s personal views and comments were ardently anti-immigration, and Wilson´s administration entrenched and expanded segregation in the federal government. 1.

Here is the definitive biography of Satchel Paige, an all-American story of struggle and triumph about the greatest pitcher to ever throw a baseball.In his hometown streets of Mobile, Alabama, Satchel Paige fired rocks with enough power and precision to bring down a bird or a rival gang member. In the Negro Leagues he fine-tuned a pitch so fast that catchers complained it set their mitts on fire. After a young Joe DiMaggio managed a scratch a single off of him, a Yankees scout wired his bosses, ´´DiMaggio all we hoped he´d be. Hit Satch one for four.´´But racial discrimination kept the Yankees and every other big-league team from signing Paige until he was 42, when he was voted Rookie of the Year. While many dismissed him as a Stepin Fetchit, if not an Uncle Tom, this book makes clear that Paige was something else entirely, a quiet subversive, defying both Uncle Tom and Jim Crow. He pitched so spectacularly that white writers and fans turned out to watch black baseball. He drew the spotlight first to himself, then to his all-black Kansas City Monarchs, and inevitably to the Monarch´s rookie second baseman Jackie Robinson. In the process, Satchel, even more than Jackie, opened the door for African Americans to the national pastime and forever changed his sport and this nation. 1. Language: English.
