Description : The story of the relationship between the most devastating heavyweight boxer in history and the mentor who made him. When legendary boxing trainer Cus D'Amato saw thirteen-year-old Mike Tyson spar in the ring, he proclaimed 'That's the heavyweight champion of the world'. D'Amato played a huge role in Tyson's formative years, legally adopting him at age sixteen, and shaping him both physically and mentally after years of living in poverty. He would train the young boxer for several years, dying just months before Tyson became the youngest heavyweight champion in history. In Iron Ambition, Tyson shares the life lessons that D'Amato passed down to him and reflects on how the trainer's words of wisdom continue to resonate with him outside the ring. The book also chronicles Cus's courageous fight against the mobsters who controlled boxing, revealing more than we've ever know about this singular cultural figure.

Description : How succeed in life and work like a successful person Some people have a strong will to succeed but don't have the ambition to direct their power. And others have ambition or dreams, but they don't possess a strong will that will make sure they succeed in spite of all those big obstacles and hurdles and keep going strongly. What you need is a strong will, coupled with a sublime ambition. Then you have that rare combination to success. Success of any degree. And this book is all about both. It presents to you one of the greatest classic self-help writers Orison Swett Marden's book An Iron Will and his another book Ambition and Success, bound together in one single volume. The First Book: An Iron Will: The book is written in such a powerful way that it will make you to realize the importance of developing a strong iron will for your success. All the great men and women in history invariably possessed an iron will which saw them through all their seemingly enormous challenges and hardships. Very few today possess a strong will power to stay in the process to succeed. This book can teach and inspire you to be and become one. Some Insights From the Book: 1. "We rise by the things that are under our feet; By what we have mastered of good or gain." 2. "The star of an unconquered will Arose in his breast, Serene, and resolute and still, And calm and self-possessed." 3. Never allow yourself to be convinced that you are not complete master of yourself. Stoutly affirm your own superiority over bodily ills. We should keep a high ideal of health and harmony constantly before the mind. 4. The power to hold on is characteristic of all men who have accomplished anything great. The Second Book: Not the Salary but the Opportunity Of course Will Power will put you into the top league. When you couple this power with excellent ways to approach your work or job or profession, you take yourself to a whole new level. And that is what the second little book is all about. How to become a star in your field with simple ways. Some Nuggets From the Book:1. The quality which you put into your work will determine the quality of your life. The habit of insisting upon the best of which you are capable, of always demanding of yourself the highest, never accepting the lowest or second best, no matter how small your remuneration, will make all the difference to you between failure and success. 2. Do not fear that your employer will not recognize your merit and advance you as rapidly as you deserve. If he is looking efficient employees--- and what employer is not? --- it will be to his own interest to do so, -- just as soon as it is profitable. W.Bourke Cockran, himself a remarkable example of success, says: "The man who brings to his occupation a loyal desire to do his best is certain to succeed. By doing the thing at hand surpassingly well, he shows that it would be profitable to employ him in some higher form of occupation, and, when there is profit in his promotion, he is pretty sure to secure it."

Description : Be sure to check out IRON AMBITION: My Life with Cus D’Amato by Mike Tyson “Raw, powerful and disturbing—a head-spinning take on Mr. Tyson's life.”—Wall Street Journal Philosopher, Broadway headliner, fighter, felon—Mike Tyson has defied stereotypes, expectations, and a lot of conventional wisdom during his three decades in the public eye. Bullied as a boy in the toughest, poorest neighborhood in Brooklyn, Tyson grew up to become one of the most ferocious boxers of all time—and the youngest heavyweight champion ever. But his brilliance in the ring was often compromised by reckless behavior. Yet—even after hitting rock bottom—the man who once admitted being addicted “to everything” fought his way back, achieving triumphant success as an actor and newfound happiness and stability as a father and husband. Brutal, honest, raw, and often hilarious, Undisputed Truth is the singular journey of an inspiring American original.
Description : The Egyptian civilisation lasted for over three thousand years, from 3100 B.C. to 30 B.C. This period saw the rise and fall of a succession of ancient Near-Eastern Empires that were a potential threat to Egypt. Weapons and equipment changed slowly over the centuries; flint and stone weapons were replaced by copper, bronze and later iron. The ambitions of individual Pharaohs varied considerably and in order to maintain military supremacy, foreign innovations, such as the chariot, were eagerly adopted and used to great effect. Information on aspects of military history is sketchy for some periods of Egyptian history, but nevertheless a wealth of material does survive; from scenes on the walls of temples and tombs, correspondence and peace treaties between nations, and the examples of the weapons and equipment that have been recovered from the ancient sites. This book looks in detail at the weapons and equipment used, at the Egyptian army and its soldiers and at some of the campaigns and battles fought by the warrior pharaohs, on land and water.
Description : The riveting novel of iron-willed Alva Vanderbilt and her illustrious family as they rule Gilded-Age New York, written by Therese Anne Fowler, a New York Times bestselling author of Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald. Alva Smith, her southern family destitute after the Civil War, married into one of America’s great Gilded Age dynasties: the newly wealthy but socially shunned Vanderbilts. Ignored by New York’s old-money circles and determined to win respect, she designed and built nine mansions, hosted grand balls, and arranged for her daughter to marry a duke. But Alva also defied convention for women of her time, asserting power within her marriage and becoming a leader in the women's suffrage movement. With a nod to Jane Austen and Edith Wharton, in A Well-Behaved Woman Therese Anne Fowler paints a glittering world of enormous wealth contrasted against desperate poverty, of social ambition and social scorn, of friendship and betrayal, and an unforgettable story of a remarkable woman. Meet Alva Smith Vanderbilt Belmont, living proof that history is made by those who know the rules—and how to break them.
