The Petty Demon is one of the funniest Russian novels. It is also the most decadent of the great Russian classics, replete with naked boys, sinuous girls, and a strange mixture of beauty and perversity. The main hero, Peredonov, is as comical as he is disgusting. He is at once a victim, a monster, a silly hypocrite, and a sadistic dullard. The plot moves from Peredonov´s petty quest for a promotion to arson and murder via one of the most incredible and uproarious scandal scenes in world literature, the masquerade ball, which the boy Sasha attends as a beautiful geisha. Even in its censored form, it is one of the most provocative and sexually open of Russian books. Sologub removed many passages which would have been unacceptable at the time of publication. In this edition these censored sections are appended, and all are keyed so that the reader can place them in the novel as it was written. Please note: This audiobook is in Russian. 1. Russian.

Falling in love isn´t a crime - but falling in love with a Russian mafia boss could be deadly. Competitive tennis player Carter Cook wants a taste of freedom. Her overprotective father monitors every aspect of her life, so when he becomes employed by Vladimir Ivanov - a sexy Russian with an array of tattoos and an accent that weakens her knees - a bit of danger is within Carter´s grasp. Behind her father´s back, she enjoys spending time with Vladimir at his lavish estate. But is he really the upstanding businessman she believes him to be? Vladimir Ivanov reigns as godfather of a Russian mafia crime ring. Vladimir spent five years of his life in a Siberian prison camp and has earned every tattoo inked into his skin. He is a powerful man who gets what he wants, and after stalking the gorgeous tennis player for years - he wants Carter. A little charm melts her heart, and behind the scenes, he orders his henchman to track her every move. He´s a tattooed stick of dynamite ready to blow at the slightest spark. As their romance reaches deadly levels, Carter senses something´s not right. When she´s lured into a compromising position at the hands of a shady European drug dealer, she calls in Boris, Vladimir´s right hand man, to rescue her - without telling Vladimir. With his authority questioned, he sets out to teach Carter a lesson about loyalty she´ll never forget. When Carter realizes she´s in too deep, she must fight for her freedom before the attraction turns fatal. But the Russian mafia plays for keeps, and Vladimir´s fierce lust to possess her spirals their romance out of control. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Melissa Moran.

It´s a familiar scene in organizations today: a new competitive threat or a big opportunity emerges. You quickly create a strategic initiative in response and appoint your best people to make change happen. And it does - but not fast enough. Or effectively enough. Real value gets lost and, ultimately, things drift back to the default status. Why is this scenario so frequently repeated in industries and organizations across the world? In the groundbreaking new book Accelerate (XLR8), leadership and change management expert, and best-selling author, John Kotter provides a fascinating answer - and a powerful new framework for competing and winning in a world of constant turbulence and disruption. Kotter explains how traditional organizational hierarchies evolved to meet the daily demands of running an enterprise. For most companies, the hierarchy is the singular operating system at the heart of the firm. But the reality is, this system simply is not built for an environment where change has become the norm. Kotter advocates a new system - a second, more agile, network-like structure that operates in concert with the hierarchy to create what he calls a ´´dual operating system´´ - one that allows companies to capitalize on rapid-fire strategic challenges and still make their numbers. Accelerate (XLR8) vividly illustrates the five core principles underlying the new network system, the eight Accelerators that drive it, and how leaders must create urgency in others through role modeling. And perhaps most crucial, the book reveals how the best companies focus and align their people´s energy and urgency around what Kotter calls the big opportunity. If you´re a pioneer, a leader who knows that bold change is necessary to survive and thrive in an ever-changing world, this book will help you accelerate into a better, more profitable future.
