Unstoppable Audiobook

Unstoppable

Author: Sonu Bhasin Narrator: Pallavi Bharati Release Date: December 2019

How do you go from being a shopkeeper to multi-billionaire in forty years? Kuldip Singh Dhingra, the patriarch of the Dhingra family and the man credited with building Berger Paints, has remained a mystery. He is low-profile, eschews media and continues to operate from a small office in Delhi. In this candid and captivating biography Kuldip reveals his story for the first time. Kuldip lost his father to an accident early in his life. He and his brothers, Sohan and Gurbachan, started as shopkeepers in Amritsar. From an annual turnover of Rs. 10 lakh in 1970, the Dhingras have built a business with an annual turnover of over Rs. 7,500 crore today. They are among the top thirty richest families in India with a net worth of over $ 4.5 billion. This never-before-told story of Kuldip moves from Amritsar to Europe to Delhi where he became the largest exporter to the Soviet Union in the 1980s. In 1990 the Dhingras bought Berger. From dealing with KGB to negotiating with the flamboyant Vijay Mallya; from being pushed to sell arms to challenging big businesses-Unstoppable narrates what a man can achieve if he pursues his dreams relentlessly.

Savarkar Vol 1 (Part 2) Audiobook

Savarkar Vol 1 (Part 2)

Author: Vikram Sampath Narrator: Pratik Sharma Release Date: December 2019

As the intellectual fountainhead of the ideology of Hindutva, which is in political ascendancy in India today, Vinayak Damodar Savarkar is undoubtedly one of the most contentious political thinkers and leaders of the twentieth century. Accounts of his eventful and stormy life have oscillated from eulogizing hagiographies to disparaging demonization. The truth, as always, lies somewhere in between and has unfortunately never been brought to light. Savarkar and his ideology stood as one of the strongest and most virulent opponents of Gandhi, his pacifist philosophy and the Indian National Congress. An alleged atheist and a staunch rationalist who opposed orthodox Hindu beliefs, encouraged inter-caste marriage and dining, and dismissed cow worship as mere superstition, Savarkar was, arguably, the most vocal political voice for the Hindu community through the entire course of India's freedom struggle. From the heady days of revolution and generating international support for the cause of India's freedom as a law student in London, Savarkar found himself arrested, unfairly tried for sedition, transported and incarcerated at the Cellular Jail, in the Andamans, for over a decade, where he underwent unimaginable torture. From being an optimistic advocate of Hindu-Muslim unity in his treatise on the 1857 War of Independence, what was it that transformed him in the Cellular Jail to a proponent of 'Hindutva', which viewed Muslims with suspicion? Drawing from a vast range of original archival documents across India and abroad, this biography in two parts-the first focusing on the years leading up to his incarceration and eventual release from the Kalapani-puts Savarkar, his life and philosophy in a new perspective and looks at the man with all his achievements and failings.

The Greatest Trade Ever: How One Man Bet Against the Markets and Made $20 Billion Audiobook

The Greatest Trade Ever: How One Man Bet Against the Markets and Made $20 Billion

Author: Gregory Zuckerman Narrator: Marc Cashman Release Date: December 2019

Brought to you by Penguin. 'The definitive account of a sensational trade' Michael Lewis, author of The Big Short Autumn 2008. The world's finances collapse but one man makes a killing. John Paulson, a softly spoken hedge-fund manager who still took the bus to work, seemed unlikely to stake his career on one big gamble. But he did - and The Greatest Trade Ever is the story of how he realised that the sub-prime housing bubble was going to burst, making $15 Billion for his fund and more than $4 Billion for himself in a single year. It's a tale of folly and wizardry, individual brilliance versus institutional stupidity. John Paulson made the biggest winning bet in history. And this is how he did it. 'Extraordinary, excellent' Observer 'A must-read for anyone fascinated by financial madness' Mail on Sunday 'A forensic, read-in-one-sitting book' Sunday Times 'Simply terrific. Easily the best of the post-crash financial books' Malcolm Gladwell 'A great page-turner and a great illuminator of the market's crash' John Helyar, author of Barbarians at the Gate

Una España mejor Audiobook

Una España mejor

Author: Mariano Rajoy Narrator: Mariano Rajoy Release Date: December 2019

El primer audiolibro narrado por un Presidente del Gobierno en España. La crónica personal de la etapa de Mariano Rajoy al frente del Ejecutivo. «Ha sido un honor -no lo hay mayor- haber sido Presidente del Gobierno de España. Ha sido un honor dejar una España mejor que la que encontré.» El audiolibro de Una España mejor es la crónica personal de la etapa al frente del Ejecutivo de Mariano Rajoy, narrado por él mismo. Un testimonio imprescindible para entender los hechos decisivos de unos años en los que España se enfrentó a trances muy complejos como la amenaza del rescate, la abdicación del rey o la crisis catalana, asuntos que ocupan un lugar destacado en sus páginas. La narración del audiolibro mantiene el estilo del expresidente, gran orador, y aporta el valor de la emoción en la narración de momentos claves de nuestra historia. El audiolibro tiene una duración de 12 horas y refleja, a través de su voz, los matices de muchas de las historias que relata en primera persona e incluye el audio original de los fragmentos de los discursos que encabezan cada capítulo. Esta es la primera vez que un Presidente del Gobierno español graba su propio audiolibro, algo habitual fuera de nuestras fronteras como demuestran los ejemplos de George W. Bush, Tony Blair, Bill Clinton o Barack Obama. «Este libro responde solo a la voluntad de contar mi historia y mis vivencias desde la responsabilidad que tenía encomendada durante unos años en los que nuestro país pudo haber quebrado, pudo haberse roto, pudo haber sufrido una severa merma en su sistema de protección social o incluso pudo haber vivido una seria crisis institucional por el relevo en la Jefatura del Estado. Todo pudo haber ocurrido, pero nada de ello sucedió. Así es como yo lo vi y como yo lo viví.». Fin de la cita.
