Patrick Carman The ad promised you'd be able to see into the spirit world. But they couldn't work for real A short story from the collection Guys read: Thriller, edited by Jon Scieszka. The mentor myth : how to take control of your own success. Debby Carreau Mentors are over-utilized, under-trained and, as studies show, under-deliver.

From an employer's perspective, assigning a mentor is often a band-aid to a larger problem. From an employee's perspective, a lack of formal mentorship is seen as a serious, career-inhibiting problem, the equivalent of sailing a boat without a rudder. In The Mentor Myth, Debby Carreau represents this dichotomy, explaining that while a mentor's counsel can be invaluable, it is not the silver bullet human resources professionals often purport it to be.

The opinions of a mentor are one data point, one piece in the much more complex game of navigating a career. In fact, the increasing overreliance on mentorship can actually be a hindrance to a successful career. Instead of continually looking outward for career guidance, aspiring professionals must realize that they possess all the tools necessary to take control of their own careers by using their own strengths, capabilities, and visions of success. Through her years of experience consulting, speaking, and writing about career development, Debby has created a comprehensive, easy-to-implement guide for taking ownership of your professional success.

Debby begins by helping the reader create a professional roadmap, including how to build a personal brand, project the right amount of confidence, and manage time. She addresses mentors in the context of networks and sponsors, advising the reader how to incorporate outward influences rather than be defined by them. A very accidental love story. Claudia Carroll An original, funny and poignant story about those things in life that you just can't plan for. Eloise Elliot is one of the youngest newspaper editors in the country. Respected and revered by her peers, she's at the top of her game.

But, on the eve of her thirtieth birthday, finding herself surrounded by some pathetic looking balloons and mangy sandwiches in The Daily Post's conference room, Eloise is hit but a long sharp pang of loneliness. Suddenly, and with dazzling clarity, she realises what she wants to make her life more complete. A baby. One successful trip to the sperm bank and almost three years later and she is the adoring mother of a gorgeous little girl, Lily.

Juggling a high-powered job with motherhood is not easy and when she finds herself without childcare she sends an SOS to her sister Helen. Yet it's when Lily starts asking about her 'daddy' that Eloise really starts to panic. What will she tell her? So Eloise decides there's nothing for it - she's going to find Lily's father.

After all, she chose the perfect donor so surely there won't be any surprises. Except that there are plenty, and Eloise gets a lot more than she bargained for. A full life : reflections at ninety. Jimmy Carter Jimmy Carter, thirty-ninth President, Nobel Peace Prize winner, international humanitarian, fisherman, reflects on his full and happy life with pride, humour, and a few second thoughts. At ninety, Carter reflects on his public and private life with a frankness that is disarming.

He adds detail and emotion about his youth in rural Georgia that he described in his earlier memoir An Hour Before Daylight. He writes about racism and the isolation of the Carters. He describes the brutality of the hazing regimen at Annapolis, how he nearly lost his life twice serving on submarines, and his amazing interview with Admiral Rickover.

He describes the profound influence his mother had on him, and how he admired his father even though he didn't emulate him. He admits that he decided to quit the Navy and later enter politics without consulting his wife, Rosalynn, and how appalled he is in retrospect. In A Full Life, Carter reveals both what he is proud of and what he might do differently. He discusses his regret at losing his re-election, but how he and Rosalynn pushed on and made a new life and second and third rewarding careers.

He is frank about the presidents who have succeeded him, world leaders, and his passions for the causes he cares most about, particularly the condition of women and the deprived people of the developing world.

Robert Harris His name is carefully guarded from the general public but within the secretive inner circles of the ultra-rich Dr Alex Hoffmann is a legend - a visionary scientist whose computer software turns everything it touches into gold. Together with his partner, an investment banker, Hoffmann has developed a revolutionary form of artificial intelligence that tracks human emotions, enabling it to predict movements in the financial markets with uncanny accuracy.

His hedge fund, based in Geneva, makes billions. But then in the early hours of the morning, while he lies asleep with his wife, a sinister intruder breaches the elaborate security of their lakeside house. So begins a waking nightmare of paranoia and violence as Hoffmann attempts, with increasing desperation, to discover who is trying to destroy him.

His quest forces him to confront the deepest questions of what it is to be human. By the time night falls over Geneva, the financial markets will be in turmoil and Hoffmann's world - and ours - transformed forever. Most of his time is devoted to thwarting a conspiracy to overthrow the state. Underlying this is the rivalry between Cicero and Caesar. As Caesar's power grows Cicero must face the compromises that come from holding power - is it justifiable to use illegal methods in order to save the Republic?

Canoeing the Congo : first source to sea descent of the Congo River Phil Harwood It was a historic first descent from the true source in the highlands of Zambia. Just short of 3, miles long, the Congo River is the eighth longest in the world and the deepest river in the world, with a flow rate second only to the Amazon.

Along the way, Phil encountered numerous waterfalls, huge rapids, man-eating crocodiles, hippos, aggressive snakes and spiders' webs the size of houses. He faced endemic corruption, was arrested, intimidated, bullied, chased and he received numerous death threats. He also collapsed from malaria.

The people were mostly friendly, however, and Phil received tremendous hospitality from a proud and brave people, especially from the riverside fishermen who helped him wherever they could. On one stretch of river known as The Abattoir due to its past history of cannibalism and current reputation for criminal activity, he hired four brothers with a shotgun to accompany him as bodyguards. They paddled and floated for five days and nights on the river. Common questions from locals were, "why haven't you cut his throat yet? We'll share his money. Canoeing the Congo will appeal to fans of adventurous travel writing and people who love the nature and wilderness.

Phil has worked all over the world as an ex-Royal Marine Commando, ski-guide, expedition leader, outdoor instructor and development trainer. He is qualified as mountain leader, a level 4 canoe coach, a level 3 kayak coach, a rock climbing instructor, a wilderness emergency medical technician and a first aid instructor.

James W Huston The Blood Flag was last seen on October 18, , when Heinrich Himmler displayed it proudly as he commissioned the Volkssturm, the Nazi Party's new militia created to avert the certain defeat that awaited Germany. Hitler believed the Blood Flag, Blutfahne, carried sacred powers.

It held the blood of the first Nazi martyrs, those killed in the Beer Hall Putsch in Munich in , when Hitler first tried to take over Germany. Several Nazis were shot and fell onto the flag, pouring their blood into the already red fabric. That flag - with a white circle and a black swastika in the middle - still lives. But after the ceremony, while travelling through Germany, Kyle and his family encounter neo-Nazis perpetuating the evil philosophy he thought his father's generation had ended once and for all.

In trying to understand the history of Nazism, Kyle learns of the Blood Flag and knows it is the key to his success. Bones of the hills. Conn Iggulden Genghis Khan is the leader of a nation united from the tribes. He was victorious in the long war against the Chin, the Mongolians' ancient foe. Now trouble arises from another direction.

But the khan has chosen a path that will lead to victory or utter destruction.

Kublai dreams of an empire stretching from sea to sea.

But to see it built, this scholar must first learn the art of war. He must take his nation's warriors to the ends of the known world. And when he is weary, when he is wounded, he must face his own brothers in bloody civil war. Empire of silver Conn Iggulden Genghis Khan is dead, but his legend and his legacy live on. His son Ogedai has built a white city on a great plain and made a capital for the new nation.

Now the armies have gathered to see which of Genghis' sons has the strength to be khan. The Mongol empire has been at peace for two years, but whoever survives will face the formidable might of their great enemy, China's Song dynasty.
