Over the course of his stellar career, Gordon has learnt every trick in the trade to create dishes that taste fantastic and that can be produced without fail during even the most busy service. Armed with that knowledge, he has written an inspired collection of recipes for the time-pressed home cook who doesn't want to compromise on taste or flavour.

All the recipes take 30 minutes or less and use readily available ingredients that are transformed into something special with Gordon's expertise.
He swore to take a bullet for the President and left it all behind to take a bullet for the American people. Why would a successful, twelve-year Secret Service agent resign his position in the prime of his career to run for political office against all the odds? New York Times bestseller, Life Inside the Bubble is an intimate look at life inside the presidential "bubble," a haze of staffers, consultants, cronies, acolytes, bureaucrats and lobbyists that creates the "alternate reality" in which monumental policy decisions are made. And it is the story of a dedicated Secret Service professional who, after years inside the "bubble," walked away in favor of sounding a clarion call to the American people in defense of sane government and the U.S. Constitution. Finally, why the Fast & Furious scandal, the bombings in Boston and the terrorist attacks in Benghazi are harbingers of what's to come without a bold change in direction. Take the journey with Dan Bongino from the tough streets of New York City where he was raised, and later patrolled as a member of the NYPD, to the White House as a member of the elite Presidential Protective Division, through his ultimate decision to resign from the Secret Service - during the Obama Administration - in the prime of his career to run for the United States Senate against the feared Maryland Democratic machine. Follow his experiences inside the Washington, D.C., matrix and discover why a government filled with some incredibly dedicated people nevertheless continues to make such frequent and tragic mistakes. 1.

Born in a Pennsylvania steel town in 1903, Homer L. Litzenberg Jr. began his long and distinguished military career as a private in the Pennsylvania National Guard. After less than two years of service, Litzenberg left the National Guard and enlisted in the US Marine Corps. Demonstrating his great abilities and leadership potential while serving in stateside posts and in combat in Haiti, Litzenberg was able to earn a commission as a second lieutenant through the Officer Candidate School after only two years of service as a Marine. As a staff officer and planning officer, Homer Litzenberg served at various times at the highest levels of the US Armed Forces command structure. He worked with and for such notable military leaders as Fleet Admiral Ernest J. King, General of the Armies George C. Marshall, General George S. Patton Jr., and Commandant of the Marine Corps General Clifton B. Cates. In combat in Haiti and Nicaragua in the 1920s, and the Marshall and Marianas Islands during World War Two, Homer Litzenberg proved himself to be a courageous and skillful leader of Marines. He was one of the very few Marines to participate in amphibious assaults in both the North Africa / European Theater and the Pacific Theater. He faced the ultimate test as a combat leader during the Korean War when he led the 7th Marine Regiment in the 1st Marine Division’s breakout from the Chosin Reservoir despite the horrendous cold and overwhelming numbers of Communist Chinese forces. For his leadership, he was awarded the Navy Cross, second only to the Medal of Honor in the hierarchy of American military/naval decorations. While many Marine officers and even several prominent generals, including Lieutenant General Lewis “Chesty” Puller, General Graves B. Erskine, and Commandant of the Marine Corps General Carl Mundy, have begun their careers as enlisted Marines, very, very few earned their commissions without having earned college degrees or having even attended college bef 1.

The international conspiracy explained. In this work of shocking revelations, William Guy Carr, a noted author who had a distinguished career as a Canadian naval officer, including outstanding service during World War II, shows how the conspiracy of atheistic-materialistic men have manipulated world events to secure ultimate control of the wealth, natural resources, and man-power of the entire world. This satanic conspiracy, Carr goes on to show, strives to abolish Christianity and all religions, dismantle all ordered national governments, weaken patriotism, and destroy traditional family life. Pawns in the Game traces the history of the great conspiracy and the World Revolutionary Movement, showing the roles of the Illuminati, the Freemasons, the communists, and the United Nations. This audiobook shows the conspiracy as part in the American Revolution, the French Revolution, the Communist takeover of Russia, and World War II. In carrying out their long-range plan, Carr shows how the conspirators have come ever closer to reaching their goal by infiltrating key centers of power and influence - gaining control of central banks and the world money supply and manipulating the media. In this important, rousing work, the author sounds the alarm to awaken Christians and patriots to the grave danger of World War Three and an oppressive new world order. He presents practical measures to expose, counter, and ultimately defeat the forces of evil. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrew Heyl.

For fans of Catch Me if You Can and The Sting, Handsome Devil is the dazzling true story of Count Victor Lustig, history's most daring - and flamboyant - con man. In Paris he sold the Eiffel Tower to scrap metal dealers, not once - but twice. His confidence games and sleight-of-hand scams relieved the filthy rich of their cash during America's depraved Jazz era. He evaded the law like a figure from fiction, slipping into disguise, leaping from jail cell windows, and leaving sneering letters for his enemies at the Secret Service. In Handsome Devil, acclaimed journalist Jeff Maysh brings to life one of the 20th century's most unforgettable public enemies, "Count" Victor Lustig, a dashing criminal mastermind and counterfeiter whose fake banknotes threatened to topple America's economy. Written in staggering detail and culminating in a desperate manhunt led by FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, Handsome Devil reveals the real man behind the myth: a genius who applied his talents to crime, and who kept a loving wife and daughter in the dark for most of his storied career. Set during America's original financial "bubble", Lustig's tale, from petty thief on the streets of Europe, to the most wanted man in the world, is the ultimate parable of American greed. Jeff Maysh investigates outrageous criminal plots and urban legends. His deeply immersive stories have appeared in publications including the Atlantic, Playboy, and Cosmopolitan. His story about the rise and fall of the "Bombshell Bandit" for the BBC was named the best crime story of 2015 by Longform.org. He is British, and lives in Los Angeles. 1. Language: English.

The West of the old times, with its strong characters, its stern battles, and its tremendous stretches of loneliness, can never be blotted from my mind. (Buffalo Bill Cody) The Wild West has made legends out of many men and women through the embellishment of their stories, but it was Buffalo Bill Cody who truly brought the Wild West to life and provided the images that people today still associate with the 19th century West. Though he had a long career that spanned service in the Civil War, trapping, and even a stint with the Pony Express, Buffalo Bill eventually became synonymous with his world-famous Wild West Show. By depicting stereotypical Western scenes like riding the Pony Express and gunfights between cowboys and Indians, Buffalo Bill became one of the men most responsible for establishing how the public remembered the Wild West, and the show influenced subsequent film and literature. The show also featured several kinds of activities that are still part of rodeos today, including riding bucking broncos, roping livestock, and target shooting. Wild West shows were popular in America during the late 19th century, but it was Buffalo Bill who made them popular overseas and truly mastered the art of showmanship. Employing famous figures of the era, including Annie Oakley and Sitting Bull, Buffalo Bill managed to make national celebrities out of his show's participants while deftly promoting himself as the ultimate showman, making himself one of the most famous figures of the Wild West in the process. With plenty of experience shooting bison and riding for the Pony Express, Buffalo Bill would also participate as a cowboy in his own show. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tracey Norman.
