A Robbie Fowler: My Life In Football: Goals, Glory & The Lessons I've Learnt

Author: Robbie Fowler Narrator: Luke Francis Release Date: November 2019

To Liverpool fans, Robbie Fowler was 'God'. He is the sixth-highest goal scorer in the history of the Premier League and notched 183 goals for Liverpool alone. But before all of that, he was a Liverpool lad who loved the game, the Kop and everything that came with it. My Life In Football is the story of a boy who became a legend. Born in Liverpool in 1975, Robbie Fowler became a club icon by the time he was 18. Now, he takes us through the games that have shaped his life and football philosophy, over 25 years after he first signed as a professional for Liverpool. Engaging, personal and revealing, Robbie opens up about his astounding achievements, the price of fame and the regrets and struggles of being a professional footballer. From Hillsborough to Madrid, via the cup treble, that goal line celebration, hundreds of goals, Houllier, Benítez, Klopp and more, Robbie explains his thinking about the modern game. Inviting readers inside the dressing room, he shares stories of legendary teammates like Rush, Owen and Gerrard, as well as his rise to football's top table. How did he get back up so many times after the injuries that blighted his career? What gave him the drive to keep going and pursue his dreams? Robbie's My Life In Football harks back to a simpler time when fans and players shared the same story, and when the local boy really could dream of scoring a hat-trick for his home club when Saturday came.

Highlight Real: Finding Honesty & Recovery Beyond The Filtered Life Audiobook

Highlight Real: Finding Honesty & Recovery Beyond The Filtered Life

Author: Emily Lynn Paulson Narrator: Emily Lynn Paulson Release Date: November 2019

A music prodigy, head of her class, and well-liked in school, Emily Paulson decided early that embellishment paved the road to success. As she grew up, she figured out how to make the picture look even better - with a successful husband, five beautiful children, and all the required accompanying accoutrements. Then along came social media, where those pictures of the perfect life grew her a following of women who believed that everything about Emily was #blessed #inspo. But behind the filtered façade was a reality filled with trauma, addiction, and dysfunctional behavior. From disordered eating to breaking the law and nearly destroying her marriage, Emily had been running from her own trauma for years. Living a life shot through with more self-destruction than she could track, Emily knew things had to change when she woke up one morning and realized that she was barely participating in the picture she had so carefully crafted. Highlight Real: Finding Honesty and Recovery Behind the Filtered Life is the true story of what happens when a so-called perfect mother and businesswoman is forced to find reckoning with her past and build a future based on the authenticity she has always sought. Searingly honest, heartbreaking and packed with uncountable did-she-actually-just-say-that moments, Highlight Real is a memoir of healing as well as a fully modern look at what happens when the filters fall off and real life emerges into the light.

Camgirl Audiobook

Camgirl

Author: Isa Mazzei Narrator: Isa Mazzei Release Date: November 2019

At twenty-three, Isa Mazzei was just like any other college graduate: broke, lacking purpose, and searching for an identity. She was also a compulsive seductress with a reputation as a slut and heartbreaker. One day, while working a low-paying retail job, she had a revelation: why not embrace her salacious image and make some money off of it? She began stripping, dancing, masturbating, playing games, making art-and broadcasting it all online for money as a camgirl. In her first month, she racked up hundreds of nightly viewers, and within a year she ranked in the top fifty girls on a site featuring tens of thousands of performers. Over the course of her career, Isa built her own business, explored BDSM, attended a porn convention, slept with a fan, and pushed herself further than she thought possible. And yet, despite her success, she struggled to fit into the community she so desperately wanted to belong to. Camgirl is a relatable look at confronting our past traumas and accepting ourselves for who we are. It masterfully explores the complexities of digital life, sexuality and the tensions between our private and public selves. Mazzei's biting humor and raw vulnerability ensure you'll never think about sex work-or sex-the same way again.

A Fly in a Pail of Milk: The Herb Carnegie Story Audiobook

A Fly in a Pail of Milk: The Herb Carnegie Story

Author: Herb Carnegie Narrator: Adenrele Ojo, Leon Nixon Release Date: November 2019

Revised and updated with commentary from Bernice Carnegie, Herb's daughter, and life lessons passed from father to daughter. Herbert Carnegie was the complete hockey package in the 1940s and 1950s. Though his contributions to society both in sport and education have been referenced and profiled in books, documentaries, and thousands of articles, this is Carnegie's own account of striving to break the glass ceiling, starting with his career as a professional hockey player on all-white teams. In 1978, noted hockey journalist Stan Fischler wrote a powerful headline about Carnegie: 'Born Too Soon.' A Fly in a Pail of Milk reveals the feelings of a trailblazer-a man who proved to be unstoppable on the ice and in his resolve to make our world a better place. In this new edition, Herb's daughter Bernice Carnegie shares stories about what it was like to work closely with Herb on youth and educational projects for more than thirty years. She also reflects on parts of her father's writings, sharing personal thoughts, family stories, and conversations about how his journey profoundly influenced her life.

Author: Laurie Lee Narrator: David Sibley Release Date: November 2019

Brought to you by Penguin. An enhanced audio edition containing original audio interviews with the author, Laurie Lee. A moving, never-before-published portrait of the landscape that shaped the life of Laurie Lee, the beloved author of Cider With Rosie 'Before I left the valley I thought everywhere was like this. Then I went away for 40 years and when I came back I realized that nowhere was like this.' Laurie Lee walked out of his childhood village one summer morning to travel the world, but he was always drawn back to his beloved Slad Valley, eventually returning to make it his home. In this portrait of his Cotswold home, Laurie Lee guides us through its landscapes, and shares memories of his village youth - from his favourite pub, The Woolpack, to winter skating on the pond, the church through the seasons, local legends, learning the violin and playing jazz records in the privy on a wind-up gramophone. Filled with wry humour and a love of place, Down in the Valley is a writer's tribute to the landscape that shaped him, and where he found peace. © Laurie Lee 2019.

I Am C-3PO - The Inside Story: Foreword by J.J. Abrams

Author: Anthony Daniels Narrator: Anthony Daniels Release Date: November 2019

DK Audio presents the audiobook edition of I Am C-3PO: The Inside Story, written and read by Anthony Daniels. Including a foreword written and read by J.J. Abrams and a selection of music from the Star Wars films, composed by John Williams. 'The odds of me ever writing a book were approximately...Oh, never mind. My golden companion worries about such things - I don't. I have indeed now written a book - telling my story, in my voice, not his - recognising that our voices and our stories are inextricably intertwined.' When Star Wars burst on to the big screen in 1977, an unfailingly polite golden droid called C-3PO captured imaginations around the globe. But C-3PO wasn't an amazing display of animatronics with a unique and unforgettable voice-over. Inside the metal costume was an actor named Anthony Daniels. In this deeply personal memoir, Anthony Daniels recounts his experiences of the epic cinematic adventure that has influenced pop culture for more than 40 years. For the very first time, he candidly describes his most intimate memories as the only actor to appear in every Star Wars film - from his first meeting with George Lucas to the final, emotional days on the set of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. With a foreword by J.J. Abrams, this book is a nostalgic look back at the Skywalker saga as it comes to a close. I Am C-3PO: The Inside Story reveals Anthony Daniels' vulnerability, how he established his role and what he accomplished, and takes readers on a journey that just happens to start in a galaxy far, far away. 'Gloriously witty, keen and spirited' (J.J. Abrams, Director of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker) Music from the original motion picture soundtracks for A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi was composed and conducted by John Williams.

The Bee and the Acorn: A Memoir

Author: Paula Susan Wallace Narrator: Hannah Chiclana Release Date: November 2019

"In 1977, the world was ready for something new," writes Savannah College of Art and Design president and founder Paula Wallace. "All around us, dreamers were dreaming up new ideas: Star Wars, The Clash, Apple. I was nearing thirty and ... wondered if I could do more." What happened next would change the face of higher education. An engaging, moving, and inspiring memoir, The Bee and the Acorn traces the journey of Wallace and her family to the historic Georgia coastal town of Savannah, where they set about creating a new university for the arts. The tiny college would be a radically different kind of institution, buzzing with progressive ideas about what education could be and what it should do for students. Nearly forty years later, SCAD has become one of the largest and most highly regarded arts universities in the world. Established in 1978, the Savannah College of Art and Design is a private, nonprofit, accredited university, offering more than 100 academic degree programs in 42 majors at locations in Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia; Hong Kong; Lacoste, France; and online via SCAD eLearning.
