Some three thousand years ago, the warriors of Greece journeyed to the ends of the earth in the quest for the Golden Fleece. One woman fought alongside them. When the king of Pagasae left his infant daughter on the slopes of a mountain to die, he believed he would never see her again. But Atalanta, against the will of the gods and the dictates of the Fates, survived—and went on to bring to life one of the greatest legends of all of ancient Greece... Teaching herself to hunt and fight, Atalanta is determined to prove her worth to her father and, disguising herself as a man, she wins a place on the greatest voyage of that heroic age: the journey of Jason and the Argonauts to the very ends of the known world in search of the legendary Golden Fleece. But Atalanta is discovered, and abandoned in the mythical land of Colchis, where she is forced to make a choice that will determine her place in history. Here then is the legend of Jason and the Argonauts as never told before: the true story of the princess who sailed and fought alongside Jason and Theseus and Peleus (father of Achilles), and who ultimately ran a race that would decide her destiny. Based on the myths of the ancient Greeks, For the Winner brings alive a mythological world where the gods can transform a mortal's life on a whim, where warrior heroes carve out names that will echo down the ages—and where one woman fights to determine her own fate.

What makes a winner? Why do some succeed both in life and in business, and others fail? The 'winner effect' is a term used in biology to describe how an animal that has won a few fights against weak opponents is much more likely to win later bouts against stronger contenders. As Ian Robertson reveals, it applies to humans, too. Success changes the chemistry of the brain, making you more focused, smarter, more confident and more aggressive. And the more you win, the more you will go on to win. But the downside is that winning can become physically addictive. By understanding what the mental and physical changes are that take place in the brain of a 'winner', how they happen, and why they affect some people more than others, Robertson explains what makes a winner or a loser - and how we can use the answers to these questions to understand better the behaviour of our business colleagues, employees, family and friends.

Do you want to do something spectacular with your life? Maybe you just want to achieve a simple goal that has been eluding you for years. Whatever size your dream may be, this new self-help guide by an experienced Police Officer and mentor can help you achieve it. Seymour Council III has spoken with hundreds of teens in his capacity as a Police Officer and in his current position as the Sergeant of the Juvenile Unit/School Resource Officers. His own life experiences have taught him how to enthusiastically approach challenges. As such, he's combined his perspective with a program formed from his experiences and from conversations he's had with youths who were exposed to greater life challenges and those whose perception of themselves was low. The result is the W.I.N.N.E.R. system, which lays down basic steps anyone can follow to achieve personal success in life. Council was originally inspired by athletes. Sports provides a solid framework for approaching problems and visualizing goals. Council uses sports terminology to connect with readers and help create a goal-oriented mentality. This program can be followed by anyone from their early teens to early twenties and beyond. If you need a little focus in your life or are a mentor or loved one to someone needing the same, this book will provide a step-by-step plan for success.

As the war intensifies, both Kestrel and Arin discover unexpected roles in battle, terrible secrets, and a fragile hope. The world is changing.
