14 Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds (Abridged Edition) - Charles Mackay
Auteur : Charles Mackay
Genre : Personal Finance
First published in 1841, Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds is often cited as the best book ever written about market psychology. This Harriman House edition includes Charles Mackay's account of the three infamous financial manias - John Law's Mississipi Scheme, the South Sea Bubble, and Tulipomania.

Between the three of them, these historic episodes confirm that greed and fear have always been the driving forces of financial markets, and, furthermore, that being sensible and clever is no defence against the mesmeric allure of a popular craze with the wind behind it.

In writing the history of the great financial manias, Charles Mackay proved himself a master chronicler of social as well as financial history. Blessed with a cast of characters that covered all the vices, gifted a passage of events which was inevitably heading for disaster, and w

It was the second time he committed bigamy.The second story is about Andersen’s personal spiritual journey. Seeking to understand why her life was ravaged, Andersen developed an ability to channel spiritual guidance, and learned that her soul planned the entire debacle. The object of the exercise was for her to experience and then release the devastating betrayal, so that she could return to wholeness.Although Love Fraud is a work of nonfiction, it is written with the

19 Nazi Germany and the Jews, 1933-1945 - Saul Friedländer
Auteur : Saul Friedländer
Genre : History
Nazi Germany and the Jews, 1933-1945 is an abridged edition of Saul Friedländer's definitive Pulitzer Prize-winning two-volume history of the Holocaust: Nazi Germany and the Jews: The Years of Persecution, 1933-1939 and The Years of Extermination: Nazi Germany and the Jews, 1939-1945.

The book's first part, dealing with the National Socialist campaign of oppression, restores the voices of Jews who were engulfed in an increasingly horrifying reality following the Nazi accession to power. Friedländer also provides the accounts of the persecutors themselves—and, perhaps most telling of all, the testimonies of ordinary German citizens who, in general, stood silent and unmoved by the increasing waves of segregation, humiliation, impoverishment, and violence.

The second part covers the German extermination policies that resulted in the murder of six million European

36 Heaven and Hell: A 2011 Abridged Edition - Emanuel Swedenborg & Simon Parke
Auteur : Emanuel Swedenborg & Simon Parke
Genre : Spirituality
Reader’s note

This is an abridged version of Swedenborg’s original, which is about twice the length. When deciding what to omit, avoidance of repetition was usually the determining factor. Even in this edition he revisits his main themes frequently. The original numbering of the paragraphs has been maintained, however, to enable readers clearly to see which passages have been omitted. 

Swedenborg wrote this work in Latin, so it is now two languages away from his native Swedish, (though he could speak English well.) The only editing has been to abbreviate some of his sentences which can creak under the weight of multiple sub-clauses. Thus on occasion, what was originally one sentence might now be three, though the literary style remains that of Swedenborg. 

I have also brought some variety to the vocabulary, to free Swedenborg and his ideas f

Laurence
Tristram
50 Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy, Abridged - Emma Laybourn
Auteur : Emma Laybourn
Genre : Classics
Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy, first published in 9 volumes between 1759 and 1767, is considered one of the great works of English literature.
It is also widely regarded as one of the most difficult to read because of its density and erratic, leap-frogging plot. This abridgment shortens the book to two-thirds of its original length, and slightly simplifies it, making it accessible to the general reader whilst retaining Sterne's wit and style.
