In 1899 Freud wrote a revolutionary work in the new field of Psychoanalysis called, The Interpretation of Dreams. The book was so full of technical details and involved case studies, however, that ordinary people had great difficulty understanding it. Twenty-one years later, he published this shorter version. Dr. Andre Tridon, who wrote the introduction to the new book, explains it this way, ´´Freud himself, however, realized the magnitude of the task which the reading of his magnum opus imposed upon those who have not been prepared for it by long psychological and scientific training and he abstracted from that gigantic work the parts which constitute the essential of his discoveries. The publishers of the present book deserve credit for presenting to the reading public the gist of Freud´s psychology in the master´s own words, and in a form which shall neither discourage beginners, nor appear too elementary to those who are more advanced in psychoanalytic study. Dream psychology is the key to Freud´s works and to all modern psychology. With a simple, compact manual such as Dream Psychology, there shall be no longer any excuse for ignorance of the most revolutionary psychological system of modern times.´´ 1. Language: English.

Since the dawn of time, what we have come to know as America has had its fair share of activities and deeds done by people, animals, or manmade things in different places and locations across the country that have become associated with frequent appearance of ghosts and other telepathic incidents. As creepy as these supposed incidents are made to seem like, these incidents have sort of transcended from mere theories or made-up fiction to actual realities to such an extent that they have been made tourist centers. In fact, ghost, paranormal and clairvoyant enthusiasts find these places which have been termed haunted as choice locations for activities such as ghost hunting! It is commonly said that in the mouth of a few witnesses then there exists at least an iota of truth; the haunting capabilities of these places have been propped up by the fact that there are a good number of people who testify on a regular of basis of encountering ghosts at one time or the other. These haunted places cut across different kind of buildings and locations; they include cinema halls, hotels, museums, cemeteries, historical sites, battlefields, mansions and even residential homes. Enough of the somewhat boring gist of the meaning of haunting and whatever it is that has to do haunting as a word; let us get down to the reason why you picked this book in the first place. It is time to reveal the top 10 haunted places in the USA. Enjoy! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Theis. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/061767/bk_acx0_061767_sample.mp3.

This is a summary of Shonda Rhimes´ Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand in the Sun and Be Your Own Person. In this poignant, hilarious, and deeply intimate call to arms, Hollywood´s most powerful woman, the megatalented creator of Grey´s Anatomy and Scandal and executive producer of How to Get Away with Murder, reveals how saying yes changed her life - and how it can change yours, too. With three hit shows on television and three children at home, Shonda Rhimes had lots of good reasons to say no when invitations arrived. Hollywood party? No. Speaking engagement? No. Media appearances? No. And to an introvert like Shonda, who describes herself as ´´hugging the walls´´ at social events and experiencing panic attacks before press interviews, there was a particular benefit to saying no: nothing new to fear. Then came Thanksgiving 2013, when Shonda´s sister, Delorse, muttered six little words at her: ´´You never say yes to anything.´´ Profound, impassioned, and laugh-out-loud funny, in Year of Yes Shonda Rhimes reveals how saying yes changed - and saved - her life and inspires listeners everywhere to change their own lives with one little word: yes. This summary is aimed at those who want to capture the gist of the book but don´t have the time to listen to the whole thing.

My Ashes of Dead Lovers Garage Sale and Other Adventures of a Single Woman of a Certain Age by Marilyn Celeste Morris. A bit about My Ashes of Dead Lovers Garage Sale from Marilyn... The original column that this book takes its name from has been lost somewhere in the depths of my office. It´s probably just as well, but the gist of the column was: My single blonde friend and I combined our households for a garage sale. While sorting through items, she would hold something up and ask something like: Where did you get this? Fortunately, she didn´t add the word ´monstrosity´. And my reply was usually something like: ´Oh, you remember old what´s his name. He gave it to me when he got a guilty conscience for taking somebody else to ski in Aspen. Let´s put a $.25 cent tag on it.´ And then, another object, with a similar answer. In sum, I had about six or seven unwanted gifts in the pile, all marked $.25 cents. That´s all the memories of these guys are worth, I pronounced over a glass of wine (not for sale, incidentally). Poor guys. If they only knew, their ashes were even now being spread over the garage, albeit in the form of their cheesy gifts to me...And that´s where My Ashes of Dead Lovers Garage Sale got its name... 1.
