This is the diary of a woman turning 50, who is going through a minor midlife crisis and by accident stumbles upon the exciting world of cougars. She is energetic, impatient, intense, witty, sarcastic, and has tons of built-up sexual tension just screaming to get out. We follow her through a year of ups and downs, laughter and panic, self-examination and growing self-confidence, sexy adventures and delicious orgasms. Her different lovers introduce her to the sensual pleasures in life, and she slowly discovers what she has been missing all those years of self-inflicted abstinence. 1. Language: English.

A little flirting never hurt anyone, right? It takes more than just a new job and a new mount to resolve a midlife crisis, but will the temptation of a younger woman really make it better? Angst had found the adventure he was looking for and got to be the hero, but those days are behind him. To save the ones he loves most, he had to sacrifice his bond with the sword that allowed him to be a hero. Now, Unsel faces a new threat. With the mysterious destruction of a large coastal city, Angst sets out to discover the cause. He soon learns that a war between the Elements is coming, and humans are in the way. It's hard to fight back when Angst is dying, the removal of his bond to the great sword Chryslaenor slowly killing him. Angst needs a sword to live, but Chryslaenor has been stolen! His friends reluctantly join him on another quest, but where do they start? Rose is missing, Angst's focus and spirit is broken, he has, somehow, upset the Elements of Ehrde, and a newcomer wants to overtake the throne. What could make things worse? Perhaps, a kiss from Princess Victoria's younger cousin Alloria? Buried in Angst is David J. Pedersen's long-awaited sequel to his first fantasy novel Angst. Join Angst and his friends as they continue experiencing midlife crisis in medieval times. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Troughton. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/180475/bk_acx0_180475_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Midlife: A Philosophical Guide , Hörbuch, Digit...

Philosophical wisdom and practical advice for overcoming the problems of middle age. How can you reconcile yourself with the lives you will never lead, with possibilities foreclosed, and with nostalgia for lost youth? How can you accept the failings of the past, the sense of futility in the tasks that consume the present, and the prospect of death that blights the future? In this self-help book with a difference, Kieran Setiya confronts the inevitable challenges of adulthood and middle age, showing how philosophy can help you thrive. You will learn why missing out might be a good thing, how options are overrated, and when you should be glad you made a mistake. You will be introduced to philosophical consolations for mortality. And you will learn what it would mean to live in the present, how it could solve your midlife crisis, and why meditation helps. Ranging from Aristotle, Schopenhauer, and John Stuart Mill to Virginia Woolf and Simone de Beauvoir, as well as drawing on Setiya's own experience, Midlife combines imaginative ideas, surprising insights, and practical advice. Writing with wisdom and wit, Setiya makes a wry but passionate case for philosophy as a guide to life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephen R. Thorne.

This isn't a midlife crisis, OK? For a start I'm not old enough yet to have one of those. I'm calling it a happiness project. I've stolen an entire summer from my life, and by the time it's over I plan to leave this place with a list in my hand. The ten things that make me happy, that's all I want to know. How difficult can it be? They may be small things - a perfect cup of coffee, a day without rain - or bigger ones. It's still the beginning, so how can I know? Addolorata Martinelli knows she should be happy. She has everything she thought she wanted - her own business, a husband, a child. So why does she feel as if something is missing? Then when her restaurant, Little Italy, is slated by a reviewer, she realises that she's lost the one thing she thought she could always count on: her love of food. So Addolorata heads to Venice for a summer alone, aiming to find the ten things that make her happy. Once she's found them, she'll construct a new life around her ten things, but will they include her life in London? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jane McDowell.

In 1994, Christopher Buckley published one of the most acclaimed and successful comic novels of the decade, Thank You for Smoking. Now, Buckley returns to the strange land of Washington, DC, in Little Green Men, a millennial comedy of manners about aliens and pundits...and how much they have in common.The reluctant hero of this hilarious novel is John Oliver Banion, a stuffy Washington talk-show host, whose privileged life is thrown into upheaval when aliens abduct him from his exclusive country-club golf course.But were his gray-skinned captors aliens...or something far more sinister? After Banion is abducted again - this time in Palm Springs - he believes he has been chosen by the extraterrestrials to champion the most important cause of the millennium, and he embarks on a crusade, appearing before a convention of UFO believers and demanding that Congress and the White House seriously investigate UFOs. His friends and family suspect that Banion is having some kind of manic-depressive midlife crisis and urge him to seek therapy before his credibility as a pillar of the punditocracy is ruined.So, John Oliver Banion must choose: keep his establishment status or become the leader of millions of impassioned and somewhat scruffy new friends who want to expose the government's secret alien agenda.Little Green Men proves once and for all that the truth is out there. Way out there. And it reaffirms Christopher Buckley's status as the funniest humanoid writer in the universe.Coming soon from Christopher Buckley: One of Our Whales Is Missing 1. Language: English.

Manuscript Missing
37,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Kent and Angie Rowen . . . have everything going for them-popular, good jobs, happy children and grandchildren, prominent parents. They are the last couple the people of Newbridge would expect to have a midlife crisis. Trouble on paradise begins when Kent, successful insurance agent, decides to follow his Walter Mitty dream of becoming an author. Not content with one published novel he is at work on a second, With Hoops of Steel. Night after night he secludes himself in his den, slaving away feverishly at his laptop, neglecting his wife. He is a chapter shy of finishing the manuscript when the sky falls: his laptop and backup CD are stolen! He sinks into a major life-event depression. No one in the family is spared the grief. His psychotherapist is about to recommend new and dangerous deep brain surgery when there's word that With Hoops of Steel has been spotted in the bookstore. Will this push Kent deeper into his black hole, or will it put him on the road to recovery? But how can he prove the book is his? Hmm. His professor-friend Scott Navano knows. The turn of the millennium seemed to me as good a time as any to leave behind a lifetime of nose-to-the-grindstone adventures as WWII pilot, English teacher, and school superintendent in order to chase my favorite phantom-becoming an author. In the first scene of Manuscript Missing we get an early hint of how devastated amateur writer Kent Rowen would become if somehow his manuscript disappeared. Guess what. It happens. I hasten to mention that Angie, his wife, is also missing. We watch as the Rowens and their families cope with the crisis. We empathize with Kent and Angie in their deep depression, loneliness, and utter despair. We follow other characters chasing their phantoms, some similar, by coincidence I'm sure, to may own. We watch a psychoanalyst, a lawyer, and a literary critic at work-fragments, no doubt, of someone's Walter Mitty dreams. The story moves to its climax. Will it be a case of all's well
