Abraham Lincoln, Princess Diana, Rick in Casablanca--why do we perceive certain people as heroes? What qualities do we see in them? What must they do to win our admiration? In Heroes, Scott T. Allison and George R. Goethals offer a stimulating tour of the psychology of heroism, shedding light on what heroism and villainy mean to most people and why heroes--both real people and fictional characters--are so vital to our lives. The book discusses a broad range of heroes, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Walt Kowalski in Gran Torino, Senator Ted Kennedy, and explorer Ernest Shackleton, plus villains such as Shakespeare's Iago. The authors highlight the Great Eight traits of heroes (smart, strong, selfless, caring, charismatic, resilient, reliable, and inspiring) and outline the mental models that we have of how people become heroes, from the underdog who defies great odds (David vs. Goliath) to the heroes who redeem themselves or who overcome adversity. Brimming with psychological insight, Heroes provides an illuminating look at heroes--and into our own minds as well.

Spirit of Heroes Book 2 of the Heroes Series The three remaining Nephilim, the giant heroes of old, have struggled throughout history to free their angelic ancestors from the pit of hell. Only the seven heroes of The Faction have stood against them and their cult of followers. But time is running out for monsters, demons, and heroes alike. As the members of The Faction share their secret tales and the true extent of their enemy's power is revealed, it becomes clear that God has gathered them for an apocalyptic battle. With a shadowed prophesy of betrayal and escape driving them all towards a frightening destiny, the burden of unraveling the greatest mystery rests especially heavy on the youngest hero, No Argentar. Peleg, Sabrina, Subaran, Simon, Fever, and Seraph must help No mature into the leader he was destined to be, even as battles rage without and within. Legions of enemies and rivers of blood stand between the heroes and their ultimate victory. Magic, treachery, and love will lead No and The Faction to the ends of the earth and beyond.

The Oxus in Afghanistan's High Pamir is one of the greatest rivers of the world, and also one of the least known. Running through the core of Central Asia, it is unusual in a myriad of ways—the most surprising of which is that it never reaches the sea. Through the centuries, the majestic Oxus has been the source of legends. For explorers and travelers in Central Asia, the Oxus provided an enduring mystery—where exactly was its source? In 2008 Bill Colegrave and two colleagues set out to find the true source and settle the argument for once and all. No easy task, but they succeeded. This is a vivid account of this quest, and also tells of the author's previous precarious visits to one of the most unstable regions of the world. Bill Colegrave brings to life an extraordinary cast of characters—including those Victorian adventurers, soldiers, and statesmen who traveled before him, as well as his fellow explorers and guides on his own extraordinary adventure.
