Breaking Free: How I Escaped Polygamy, the FLDS...
€ 12.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In this searing memoir of survival in the spirit of Stolen Innocence, the daughter of Warren Jeffs, the self-proclaimed Prophet of the FLDS Church, takes you deep inside the secretive polygamist Mormon fundamentalist cult run by her family and how she escaped it. Born into the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Rachel Jeffs was raised in a strict patriarchal culture defined by subordinate sister wives and men they must obey. No one in this radical splinter sect of the Mormon Church was more powerful or terrifying than its leader Warren Jeffs-Rachel´s father. Living outside mainstream Mormonism and federal law, Jeffs arranged marriages between under-age girls and middle-aged and elderly members of his congregation. In 2006, he gained international notoriety when the FBI placed him on its Ten Most Wanted List. Though he is serving a life sentence for child sexual assault, Jeffs´ iron grip on the church remains firm, and his edicts to his followers increasingly restrictive and bizarre. In Breaking Free, Rachel blows the lid off this taciturn community made famous by Jon Krakauer´s bestselling Under the Banner of Heaven to offer a harrowing look at her life with Warren Jeffs, and the years of physical and emotional abuse she suffered. Sexually assaulted, compelled into an arranged polygamous marriage, locked away in ´´houses of hiding´´ as punishment for perceived transgressions, and physically separated from her children, Rachel, Jeffs´ first plural daughter by his second of more than fifty wives, eventually found the courage to leave the church in 2015. But Breaking Free is not only her story-Rachel´s experiences illuminate those of her family and the countless others who remain trapped in the strange world she left behind. A shocking and mesmerizing memoir of faith, abuse, courage, and freedom, Breaking Free is an expose of religious extremism and a beacon of hope for anyone trying to overcome personal obstacles.

Of all the world´s tech billionaires, none have been lauded for their leadership as much as Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos. His style and vision has been a constant example of effective business leadership. Most notably, he has completely changed the way we purchase consumer goods and transformed consumer culture. Jeff Bezos was born Jeff Jorgensen in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1964 to a teenage mother. His father left when he was a toddler and his mother remarried to Cuban immigrant Miguel Bezos, who would later legally adopt young Jeff. His biological father didn´t even know his son was one of the wealthiest people in the world until a reporter found him in 1999. The family eventually ended up in Miami where Jeff graduated valedictorian of his high school. He actually started his first company while in high school, an educational summer camp for teenagers called the Dream Institute. He still had to take ´´normal´´ jobs for high school kids, his first at McDonalds. He took a big interest in space travel, articulating a grand vision of space colonies orbiting Earth in the near future. Jeff called himself a ´´garage inventor,´´ often tinkering with simple household items and inventing things out of them, such as alarms and a solar microwave. Bezos attended Princeton University after high school, where he graduated near the top of his class with degrees in both electrical engineering and computer science. He surprisingly ended up on Wall Street in a few different firms, working in various capacities related to networking infrastructure. He finally ended up in the investment fund D.E. Shaw, climbing his way up to the position of vice president in 1990. At 36, he was the youngest vice president in the history of the firm. He met his wife MacKenzie while working there. During his time at D.E. Shaw, Bezos envisioned a relatively new concept of a mail-o... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kelly Rhodes.

Jeff Regan, Investigator came to CBS Radio on July 10, 1948, with Jeff Regan as a tough private eye working for a detective agency run by Anthony J. Lyon. Regan introduced himself on each show with: ´´I get 10 a day and expenses.

Regan handled rough assignments from Lyon, with whom he was not always on good terms. Actor Jack Webb played Regan as tough and tenacious, with a dry sense of humor.

The inside story of the new race to conquer space, as Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos spend billions of their own money to explore the final frontier For the larger-than-life personalities now staking their fortunes on the development of rocket ships, the new race to explore space could be a dead end, a lucrative opportunity - or the key to humanity´s salvation. Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos take center stage in this fast-paced narrative as they attempt to disrupt the space economy, feed their own egos, and maybe even save the world. We also meet a supporting cast of equally fascinating entrepreneurs, from the irrepressible British mogul Richard Branson to satellite Internet visionary Greg Wyler. All are united in the profound conviction that commercial space transportation will transform our world for the better. Tim Fernholz´s fly-on-the-wall reporting captures an industry in the midst of disruption, as NASA seeks to preserve its ambitious space exploration program, traditional aerospace firms like Boeing and Lockheed Martin scramble to adapt to new competitors, lobbyists tussle over public funds, and lawmakers try to prevent this new space race from sparking global conflict. With privileged access to top executives at SpaceX, including Musk himself, as well as at Blue Origin, NASA, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Orbital ATK, and Virgin Galactic, Fernholz spins this high-stakes marathon into a riveting tale of rivalry and survival.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Jeff Davis Swaine digs up evidence for a Raleigh, North Carolina, trial law firm. When a client comes home to find his McMansion burglarized - and his new wife´s dog dead in the kitchen - the man suspects his ex-wife. But this is someone far more dangerous. From a stolen minivan, washed-up jazz bassist Leonard Noblac is performing his ´´perfect jazz album of felonies´´ to punish the zeros in the soulless suburb of Rocky Falls. He composes a series of musical compositions and meticulously plans out symbolic crimes to go along with each one, believing the notoriety from his crimes will finally make him famous for his music. Used to working from the shadow at the back of the stage, and bitter from his failure to make it in the New York jazz world and his move to the suburbs, Leonard puts down a throbbing beat of crime and destruction. As Leonard´s crimes give voice to his rage, he finds himself able to improvise like never before, with terrifying results. Jeff must find Leonard and save the teenager and newborn he has kidnapped before the musician can write them into the fiery crescendo of Leonard´s album. Author Bryan Gilmer teaches news writing at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. A former newspaper reporter and radio newsreader, he is also the author of the mystery Kill the Story. 1.
