Risk: Living on the Edge Audiobook

Risk: Living on the Edge

Author: Michael E. Tennenbaum Narrator: Adam Grupper Release Date: November 2019

Risk-taker Michael E. Tennenbaum has contributed mightily to American financial institutions, business, and society. A financier, adventurer, and philanthropist, in his debut book, Risk: Living on the Edge, he delivers intriguing insider details on how "impossible" deals are completed, along with an inspiring guide to applying risk-taking successfully to your business and personal life. Tennenbaum takes us behind the scenes at Bear Stearns, illuminating the end of that great American success story as never before disclosed. He imparts insights from investment banking, risk arbitrage, and options; how he employed risk to achieve competitive advantage after leaving Bear Stearns and starting his own firms; the inner machinations of his high-stakes deals; and the backstory to innovations he created. A daredevil who feeds sharks and swims with humpback whales, who has lifted off from an aircraft carrier, descended in a nuclear submarine, trained with the US Navy SEALs, taken the Olympic bobsled run in Innsbruck, and driven an elephant in the Mekong River, Tennenbaum describes his theory of risk as the compelling force of some people's lives and the trait that drives visionary pioneers toward their unending accomplishments. He shares strategies on applying boldness and challenging the status quo to seize opportunities, face struggles that pay off, manage mistakes, and give back to one's community. Listening to Risk, you get to walk in the shoes of an unpredictable, very successful self-made man who follows his own path. Applying personal tales of pushing limits and his experiences with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the Smithsonian Institution, Harvard Business School, and the Joffrey Ballet, among other firms and cultural institutions, he demonstrates how to reach greater heights of performance, achievement, and contentment. Risk is a fascinating look at financial industry management, non-profits and how to help them grow, civic projects and how to combat inertia, and one man's craving to move the needle of social progress.

MacTrump: A Shakespearean Tragicomedy of the Trump Administration, Part I Audiobook

MacTrump: A Shakespearean Tragicomedy of the Trump Administration, Part I

No one thought that MacTrump-Lord of MacTrump Towers, Son of New York-would ascend to the highest position in the kingdom. Yet with the help of his unhappy but dutiful wife Lady MacTrump, his clever daughter Dame Desdivanka, and his coterie of advisers, MacTrump is comfortably ensconced in the White Hold as President of the United Fiefdoms, free to make proclamations to his subjects through his favorite messenger, McTweet. The Democrati, mourning the loss of their cherished leader O'Bama, won't give up without a fight. They still remember the disastrous reign of George the Lesser, and they can see Putain's dark influence on MacTrump. Their greatest hope is MacMueller, tasked with investigating the plot that empowered MacTrump's rise to the throne. As Desdivanka schemes to overthrow her father's councilors, and as Donnison and Ericson-trapped in their own Rosencrantz and Guildenstern-like storyline-prove useless to their father, MacTrump soon realizes he has no true allies. Will he be able to hold on to his throne? Only time will tell in this tragicomic tale of ambition, greed, and royal ineptitude.

Terms of Engagement: Stories of the Father and Son Audiobook

Terms of Engagement: Stories of the Father and Son

Terms of Engagement explores father and son as intimate enemies, each yearning to be understood, acknowledged, and validated by the other. Raw and gripping, these nine stories take place in collision territory - where father and son engage in trying to repair their alienation. Despite this, hope is the theme that pulses through the collection. Hope propels: a desperate father's attempt to get his stay-at-home son off his ass and functioning like an adult; a teenager's uncertain effort to rescue his emotionally distant father; a thirty-year father's strategy to reconnect to his estranged son; and a new dad to break free of his own father's insidious influence. Terms of Engagement delves into the heart of the matter: who am I, as a human being? As an audiobook producer/director, Paul Alan Ruben has won numerous industry awards, including two Grammy Awards for Best Spoken Word. He's been published by Pif Magazine, Pennsylvania English/35 and Connotation Press, and contributed to various non-fiction print and online publications. He lives in Brooklyn, NY.

The Nationalist Revival: Trade, Immigration, and the Revolt Against Globalization Audiobook

The Nationalist Revival: Trade, Immigration, and the Revolt Against Globalization

Author: John B. Judis Narrator: Adam Grupper Release Date: October 2018

Why Has Nationalism Come Roaring Back? Trump in America, Brexit in the U.K., anti-EU parties in Italy, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Austria, Poland, and Hungary, and nativist or authoritarian leaders in Turkey, Russia, India, and China -- Why has nationalism suddenly returned with a vengeance? Is the world headed back to the fractious conflicts between nations that led to world wars and depression in the early 20th Century? Why are nationalists so angry about free trade and immigration? Why has globalization become a dirty word? Based on travels in America, Europe, and Asia, veteran political analyst John B. Judis found that almost all people share nationalist sentiments that can be the basis of vibrant democracies as well as repressive dictatorships. Today's outbreak of toxic 'us vs. them' nationalism is an extreme reaction to utopian cosmopolitanism, which advocates open borders, free trade, rampant outsourcing, and has branded nationalist sentiments as bigotry. Can a new international order be created that doesn't dismiss what is constructive about nationalism? As he did for populism in The Populist Explosion, a runaway success after the 2016 election, Judis looks at nationalism from its modern origins in the 1800s to today to find answers.

The Russian government immediately blames Chechen terrorists, and Oleg Kraskin-a sharp young lawyer in love with the president's daughter-has no reason to doubt it.
