“I am most grateful for two things: that I was born in North Korea, and that I escaped from North Korea.” - Yeonmi Park "One of the most harrowing stories I have ever heard - and one of the most inspiring." - The Bookseller “Park's remarkable and inspiring story shines a light on a country whose inhabitants live in misery beyond comprehension. Park's important memoir showcases the strength of the human spirit and one young woman's incredible determination to never be hungry again.” —Publishers Weekly In In Order to Live, Yeonmi Park shines a light not just into the darkest corners of life in North Korea, describing the deprivation and deception she endured and which millions of North Korean people continue to endure to this day, but also onto her own most painful and difficult memories. She tells with bravery and dignity for the first time the story of how she and her mother were betrayed and sold into sexual slavery in China and forced to suffer terrible psychological and physical hardship before they finally made their way to Seoul, South Korea—and to freedom. Park confronts her past with a startling resilience. In spite of everything, she has never stopped being proud of where she is from, and never stopped striving for a better life. Indeed, today she is a human rights activist working determinedly to bring attention to the oppression taking place in her home country. Park’s testimony is heartbreaking and unimaginable, but never without hope. This is the human spirit at its most indomitable.

'I am most grateful for two things: that I was born in North Korea, and that I escaped from North Korea.' Yeonmi Park was not dreaming of freedom when she escaped from North Korea. She didn't even know what it meant to be free. All she knew was that she was running for her life, that if she and her family stayed behind they would die - from starvation, or disease, or even execution. This book is the story of Park's struggle to survive in the darkest, most repressive country on earth; her harrowing escape through China's underworld of smugglers and human traffickers; and then her escape from China across the Gobi desert to Mongolia, with only the stars to guide her way, and from there to South Korea and at last to freedom; and finally her emergence as a leading human rights activist - all before her 21st birthday.

Eunsun Kim was born in North Korea, one of the most secretive and oppressive countries in the modern world. As a child Eunsun loved her country...despite her school field trips to public executions, daily self-criticism sessions, and the increasing gnaw of hunger as the country-wide famine escalated. By the time she was eleven years old, Eunsun's father and grandparents had died of starvation, and Eunsun was in danger of the same. Finally, her mother decided to escape North Korea with Eunsun and her sister, not knowing that they were embarking on a journey that would take them nine long years to complete. Before finally reaching South Korea and freedom, Eunsun and her family would live homeless, fall into the hands of Chinese human traffickers, survive a North Korean labor camp, and cross the deserts of Mongolia on foot. Now, Eunsun is sharing her remarkable story to give voice to the tens of millions of North Koreans still suffering in silence. Told with grace and courage, her memoir is a riveting exposé of North Korea's totalitarian regime and, ultimately, a testament to the strength and resilience of the human spirit.

Despite the long human history of the Canadian central arctic, there is still little historical writing on the Inuit peoples of this vast region. Although archaeologists and anthropologists have studied ancient and contemporary Inuit societies, the Inuit world in the crucial period from the 16th to the 20th centuries remains largely undescribed and unexplained. In Order to Live Untroubled helps fill this 400-year gap by providing the first, broad, historical survey of the Inuit peoples of the central arctic.Drawing on a wide array of eyewitness accounts, journals, oral sources, and findings from material culture and other disciplines, historian Renee Fossett explains how different Inuit societies developed strategies and adaptations for survival to deal with the challenges of their physical and social environments over the centuries. In Order to Live Untroubled examines how and why Inuit created their cultural institutions before they came under the pervasive influence of Euro-Canadian society. This fascinating account of Inuit encounters with explorers, fur traders, and other Aboriginal peoples is a rich and detailed glimpse into a long-hidden historical world.

In Awatangi, Jess meets Keri, a local lawyer who has also recently returned home. Like Jess, Keri surfs, and like Jess, she seems to feel some attachment to her family roots in Awatangi.

Do you feel like you struggle to make time for everything? We are living in a time-poor society, working more than ever and with less time for ourselves and family. The pressures and stress of the obligations we feel we have, often leave us without time to do everything that we would like to. More critically, we lack the time to reflect, review our lives and consider our direction. Time to contemplate if the decisions we are making are going to lead us to a life of purpose or an old age filled with regret. Time for Anything is based on 5 years of research by Craig D Robinson. Using the techniques in this book, Craig went from working in an entry level position to, in just four years: start 2 companies, recharge with 12 weeks holiday a year, start a family, grow and sell his startups and retire at the age of 34. This book shows you how you too can have time for it all.

You Are Not In Control According to research, 99% of the thoughts, emotions and actions you had today are the same as the ones you had yesterday. We simply repeat things unconsciously. We think we're in control but we really are not. Our programming simply repeats things daily. You cannot fight this programming with willpower. You need to consciously reprogram it with new routines so that it works for you, rather than against you, in achieving your goals. External Results Are An Illusion. Change Yourself And Your External Results Change The default thing we try to do if we're not getting the external results we seek is to reach out and try to change the results, often without changing ourselves. Striving to create an external result that is not in alignment with who you currently are internally is really a case of chasing shadows. The reality is that the external world you see is simply a reflection of your state of consciousness. The only way to change your external world is to change yourself internally. So for the external changes you want to see in your life you need to first detail out the external goals, and then map them to internal changes you need to make in order to achieve them. With this shift in thinking, there is no need for you to get anxious about making external changes that are outside your control. You just need to focus on making the required internal changes as internal change is all within your control. Your External World Is Simply A Mirror Of You It can be difficult for you to really see yourself due to the multitude of smokescreens and the fact we humans are masters at self-deception. However an accurate way of seeing yourself is in your external circumstances. External reality acts as a mirror to enable us see what's really going on inside. This is good news because when you become aware of this law you realise all the power to change your reality lies within you. The reflection never lies, just as you cannot stand in front of a physical mirror and see a different person in your reflection. The law of correspondence is as real as gravity. Growth Is All That Matters Growth is what matters in life, not the material things we acquire. Material things can disappear in a flash but growth remains forever. If you don't try new things and deal with whatever learning curve is required then you don't grow. In This Book You'll Learn: The difference between the ego and consciousness and the role of the ego in shaping your life. How to use challenges in life as welcome tools to create a better version of yourself instead of seeing them as bad. How to use the Law of Correspondence which is always in operation in your life whether you're aware of it or not. How to transform yourself to the person who can automatically get the kind of results you want in life. How to use the power of delayed gratification to make your life easier. A step by step guide for how to create and instil positive habits and make them effortless within 30 days. How to increase your productive capacity so that you can get more done without necessarily working harder. How to use the power of giving to get the things you want in life.What to know more?

A man named Jesus, whom is considered the Christ by countless people around the world to this day, lost his life at the hands of barbarians while residing in Canaan, where he devoted his life to making those around him aware they had the potential to become gods. Despite the accumulation of so many technological innovations over the past two millennium that were supposed to ease the daily hardship of people everywhere, so more time could be devoted to pursuits that cultivate the mind, evidence indicates that the size of the Homo-sapien brain, male and female alike, has persistently decreased over this passage of time. The pain, and suffering, endured by Jesus was supposed to serve as a wake up call to the savages in his midst, and the generations to follow, that they had much to learn about what he means to be civilized, as we see amply evidence of to this very day.

Judith's marriage to Adam is failing fast. Despite her best efforts, his attention is entirely taken up by his law practice while her existence-if he remembers it-is merely something to criticize. Thankfully, Judith has an antique shop and her best friend and business partner, Susan, to keep her focused on the good things in life. Tired of being overlooked and undervalued, Judith decides to leave her husband and reconnect with herself as a single woman rather than as Adam's wife. Soon, Judith's world expands to include a support group of women also facing divorce. Slowly learning to extend to herself the same compassion she offers her friends, Judith begins to rediscover her own value as a person and as a woman. And her efforts don't go unnoticed. While Judith rebuilds her life, with the encouragement of her growing circle of friends, a secret admirer starts leaving thoughtful gifts on her doorstep-which she begins to hope will lead to a face-to-face meeting. A celebration of friendship and love, where every character counts, "The Things That Fall Away" is an insightful story that brings to light the beauty of everyday things and the wonder of being truly cherished.
