Emotional Intelligence : 10th Anniversary Edition; Why It Can Matter More Than IQ
“A thoughtfully written, persuasive account explaining emotional intelligence and why it can be crucial.”–USA Today Everyone knows that high IQ is no guarantee of success, happiness, or virtue, but until Emotional Intelligence, we could only guess why. Daniel Goleman’s brilliant report from the frontiers of psychology and neuroscience offers startling new insight into our “two minds”–the rational and the emotional–and how they together shape our destiny. Drawing on groundbreaking brain and behavioral research, Goleman shows the factors at work when people of high IQ flounder and those of modest IQ do surprisingly well. These factors, which include self-awareness, self-discipline, and empathy, add up to a different way of being smart–and they aren’t fixed at birth. Although shaped by childhood experiences, emotional intelligence can be nurtured and strengthened throughout our adulthood–with immediate benefits to our health, our relationships, and our work. The twenty-fifth-anniversary edition of Emotional Intelligence could not come at a better time–we spend so much of our time online, more and more jobs are becoming automated and digitized, and our children are picking up new technology faster than we ever imagined. With a new introduction from the author, the twenty-fifth-anniversary edition prepares readers, now more than ever, to reach their fullest potential and stand out from the pack with the help of EI.

Jake Brigance, lawyer hero of A Time to Kill and Sycamore Row, is back, in his toughest case ever.
‘A new Grisham legal thriller is always an event, but this one is exceptional as the author is returning to Jake Brigance, the hero of his very first book, A Time To Kill . . . There is a lot of Grisham in Brigance – they were both street lawyers on the side of the people, not big corporations. It gives the book an emotional core that burns with a white heat’ – Daily Mail
‘A master of plotting and pacing . . . suspenseful’ – New York Times
CAN A KILLER EVER BE ABOVE THE LAW?
Deputy Stuart Kofer is a protected man. Though he’s turned his drunken rages on his girlfriend, Josie, and her children many times before, the police code of silence has always shielded him.
But one night he goes too far, leaving Josie for dead on the floor before passing out. Her son, sixteen-year-old Drew, knows he only has this one chance to save them. He picks up a gun and takes the law into his own hands.
In Clanton, Mississippi, there is no one more hated than a cop killer – but a cop killer’s defence lawyer comes close. Jake Brigance doesn’t want this impossible case but he’s the only one with enough experience to defend the boy.
As the trial begins, it seems there is only one outcome: the gas chamber for Drew. But, as the town of Clanton discovers once again, when Jake Brigance takes on an impossible case, anything is possible …
Starring the same hero and setting that featured in John Grisham’s multi-million-selling bestsellers A Time to Kill (adapted as a film starring Samuel L. Jackson and Matthew McConaughey) and Sycamore Row, A Time for Mercy is an unforgettable thriller you won’t be able to put down.
‘When Grisham gets in the courtroom he lets rip, drawing scenes so real they’re not just alive, they’re pulsating’ Mirror
‘A superb, instinctive storyteller’ The Times
‘Storytelling genius … he is in a league of his own’ Daily Record

NO ONE WRITES DRAMA LIKE JOHN GRISHAM
Ultimate Hacking Challenge: Train on dedicated machines to master the art of hacking Paperback – 3 June 2017UGX 115,000
This is not your regular hacking book. Hell, some might say it is not even a book. This is a training program that gives you a free coupon to access dedicated and real machines with real flaws for 24 hours straight. Reading about hacking is fun, hacking real systems is a whole other level of awesomeness! This program is an opportunity to hone your skills on the training platform at www.hacklikeapornstar.com/training: no simulation, no regex based wargames, no far-fetched hacking-like tricks that only work in CTF games… You get a free coupon to access real machines with real and common flaws. The kind of vulnerabilities you find in every corporate environment around the world: -Bypassing application whitelisting -Privilege escalation -Pivoting on other machines It’s up to you to exploit them in a meaningful way without screwing up the system. I strongly encourage you to take on the training, struggle with the challenge on your own for a few minutes before reading the chapter describing the solution. Try your usual techniques, read about new ones, and have fun. If you are looking for a passive read about hacking, there are other interesting (and more comprehensive) books to try (preferably mine). This piece of work is about concrete action! This is, in my opinion, the best way to fully internalize the concepts and reflexes that make a great hacker. In case you are discovering the world of hacking/pentesting, I planted several links to resources explaining the different concepts we are dealing with.
