Steven Gould: Jumper: Griffin's Story
Jumper: Griffin's Story was written by Gould to compliment the 2008 film Jumper starring Samuel L Jackson. The novel explores the life of Griffin O'Connor as he uses his teleportation powers to hunt his parents' murderers. Rule One: Never jump where someone can see you. Rule Two: Never jump near home. Rule Three: Never jump to or from the same place twice. Rule Four: Only jump if you have, only if they find you. The first time it happened, Griffin O'Connor was only five years old; he jumped from the steps of the Martyr's Memorial in Oxford, in front of a busload of tourists. The second time it happened his family had to cross an ocean to protect his secret. But four years later Griff accidentally broke his parent's rules and jumped again. That night the men from Oxford found them, and by morning his parents had been murdered, leaving Griff alone, wounded and only nine years old. Griffin grows up with only two goals: to survive, and to kill the people who want him dead. And a Jumper bent on revenge is not going to let anything stand in his way.
After hearing about her classmate's new puppy, Posey wants a dog of her own even though she's a little bit scared of dogs. When a new neighbor moves in with a dog that has a very big bark, Posey tries not to be afraid. Will her special pink tutu give her the courage to befriend the next-door dog? A revolutionary rethinking of everything we know about power It shapes every interaction we have, whether we're trying to get a two-year-old to eat green vegetables or ask for a promotion at work. But how do we really gain power? And what does it do to us? As renowned psychologist Dacher Keltner reveals, the new science of power shows that our Machiavellian view of status is wrong. Influence comes not to those who are ruthless, Jumper: Griffin's Story ebook pdf but to those with socially intelligence and empathy. Yet, ironically, the seductions of success lead us to lose those very qualities that made us powerful in the first place. Keltner draws on fascinating case studies to illuminate this 'power paradox', revealing how it shapes not just companies and elections but everyday relationships. As his myth-busting research shows, power - and powerlessness - distorts our behaviour, affecting whether or not we will have an affair, break the law, drive recklessly or find our purpose in life. In twenty original 'power principles', Keltner shows how we can retain power by maintaining a focus on others.
