Author: Felicity Hassan, Suki Sandhu Narrator: Ako Mitchell Release Date: March 2022

Brought to you by Penguin. LEAD MEANINGFUL AND POSITIVE CHANGE WITH THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO IMPLEMENTING DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION Of the very few Fortune 500 companies that share diversity data, 72% of their senior executives are white men. And it's been proven that companies with more diverse management teams have nearly 20% higher revenues. Surely YOU don't want to be left behind? Moral imperatives aside, the business case for diversity and inclusion is clear - they are clear drivers of innovation, profit and employer brand. But how can male white leadership implement this change? There's no denying it's difficult - perhaps you feel left out of the conversation, afraid to make mistakes, and confused about the evolving language of diversity and inclusion. In this practical guide, leading diversity specialists Felicity Hassan and Suki Sandhu OBE teach you how to create an inclusive environment for your employees and have educated conversations about diversity, illuminating what can sometimes be tricky territory with humour and heart. © Felicity Hassan, Suki Sandhu 2022 (P) Penguin Audio 2022

Brought to you by Penguin. An accessible, powerful overview of Noam Chomsky's political thought In sixteen extended talks with Alternative Radio's David Barsamian, Noam Chomsky explains why the 'war on drugs' is really a war on poor people; how attacks on political correctness are attacks on independent thought; how historical revisionism has recast the United States as the victim in the Vietnam War. Widely recognized as one of the most original and important thinkers of our age, Chomsky's trenchant analysis of current events is a breath of fresh air in a world more and more polluted by mainstream media. © Noam Chomsky 2022 (P) Penguin Audio 2022

Take Your Breath Away Audiobook

Take Your Breath Away

Author: Linwood Barclay Narrator: Ako Mitchell, Julia Locascio, Laurel Lefkow Release Date: February 2022

A missing woman. A husband suspected. The truth will … Take Your Breath Away Linwood Barclay is… ‘A suspense master’ Stephen King    ‘In a class of his own’ T.M. Logan ‘One of the finest thriller writers in the world’ Mark Billingham It’s always the husband, isn’t it? One weekend, while Andrew Mason was on a fishing trip, his wife, Brie, vanished without a trace. Most people assumed Andy had got away with murder, but the police couldn’t build a strong case against him. For a while, Andy hit rock bottom – he drank too much, was abandoned by his friends, nearly lost his business and became a pariah in the place he had once called home. Now, six years later, Andy has put his life back together. He’s sold the house he shared with Brie and moved away for a fresh start. When he hears his old house has been bulldozed and a new house built in its place, he’s not bothered. He’s settled with a new partner, Jayne, and life is good. But Andy’s peaceful world is about to shatter. One day, a woman shows up at his old address, screaming, ‘Where’s my house? What’s happened to my house?' And then, just as suddenly as she appeared, the woman – who bears a striking resemblance to Brie – is gone. The police are notified and old questions – and dark suspicions – resurface. Could Brie really be alive after all these years? If so, where has she been? It soon becomes clear that Andy’s future, and the lives of those closest to him, depends on discovering what the hell is going on. The trick will be whether he can stay alive long enough to unearth the answers… PRAISE FOR LINWOOD BARCLAY: ‘A suspense master’ STEPHEN KING   ‘A full-throttle powerhouse of a thriller – Linwood Barclay is in a class of his own’ T.M. LOGAN ‘One of the finest thriller writers in the world’ MARK BILLINGHAM ‘The twists keep coming’ THE TIMES 'No one can thrill you and chill you better than Barclay' TESS GERRITSEN ‘Another lightning-paced page-turner with a twist that really did take my breath away. Absolutely classic Linwood’ MARK EDWARDS ‘Gripping, propulsive, and surprising – he wasn’t kidding, I’m breathless’ DAVID KOEPP

Now Comes Good Sailing: Writers Reflect on Henry David Thoreau Audiobook

Now Comes Good Sailing: Writers Reflect on Henry David Thoreau

Author: Various Narrator: Ako Mitchell, Barbara Barnes, Kaliswa Brewster, Kate Harper, Peter Marinker, William Hope Release Date: October 2021

This audiobook brings together original pieces on Thoreau by twenty-seven of today's leading writers With narration by William Hope, Barbara Barnes, Kaliswa Brewster, Kate Harper, Peter Marinker, and Ako Mitchell Features essays by Jennifer Finney Boylan • Kristen Case • George Howe Colt • Gerald Early • Paul Elie • Will Eno • Adam Gopnik • Lauren Groff • Celeste Headlee • Pico Iyer • Alan Lightman • James Marcus • Megan Marshall • Michelle Nijhuis • Zoë Pollak • Jordan Salama • Tatiana Schlossberg • A. O. Scott • Mona Simpson • Stacey Vanek Smith • Wen Stephenson • Robert Sullivan • Amor Towles • Sherry Turkle • Geoff Wisner • Rafia Zakaria • and a cartoon by Sandra Boynton The world is never done catching up with Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862), the author of Walden, “Civil Disobedience,” and other classics. A prophet of environmentalism and vegetarianism, an abolitionist, and a critic of materialism and technology, Thoreau even seems to have anticipated a world of social distancing in his famous experiment at Walden Pond. In Now Comes Good Sailing, twenty-seven of today’s leading writers offer wide-ranging original pieces exploring how Thoreau has influenced and inspired them—and why he matters more than ever in an age of climate, racial, and technological reckoning. Here, Lauren Groff retreats from the COVID-19 pandemic to a rural house and writing hut, where, unable to write, she rereads Walden; Pico Iyer describes how Thoreau provided him with an unlikely guidebook to Japan; Gerald Early examines Walden and the Black quest for nature; Rafia Zakaria reflects on solitude, from Thoreau’s Concord to her native Pakistan; Mona Simpson follows in Thoreau’s footsteps at Maine’s Mount Katahdin; Jennifer Finney Boylan reads Thoreau in relation to her experience of coming out as a trans woman; Adam Gopnik traces Thoreau’s influence on the New Yorker editor E. B. White and his book Charlotte’s Web; and there’s much more. The result is a lively and compelling collection that richly demonstrates the countless ways Thoreau continues to move, challenge, and provoke readers today.

The Ground Breaking: The Tulsa Race Massacre and an American City's Search for Justice Audiobook

The Ground Breaking: The Tulsa Race Massacre and an American City's Search for Justice

Author: Scott Ellsworth Narrator: Ako Mitchell Release Date: August 2021

A gripping exploration of the worst single incident of racial violence in American history, timed to coincide with its 100th anniversary. On 31 May 1921, in the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma, a mob of white men and women reduced a prosperous African American community, known as Black Wall Street, to rubble, leaving countless dead and unaccounted for, and thousands of homes and businesses destroyed. But along with the bodies, they buried the secrets of the crime. Scott Ellsworth, a native of Tulsa, became determined to unearth the secrets of his home town. Now, nearly 40 years after his first major historical account of the massacre, Ellsworth returns to the city in search of answers. Along with a prominent African American forensic archaeologist whose family survived the riots, Ellsworth has been tasked with locating and exhuming the mass graves and identifying the victims for the first time. But the investigation is not simply to find graves or bodies - it is a reckoning with one of the darkest chapters of American history. 'A brilliant update that recounts the events with the swiftness of an especially grim crime thriller. ... An essential historical record surrounding heinous events that have yet to be answered with racial justice.' Kirkus Reviews (starred review) 'Absolutely riveting ... With a stunning combination of objectivity and empathy, it demonstrates how even in polarized times we can come together in pursuit of truth. ... Anyone interested in America's future should read it as a template for the reconciliation that lies ahead.' Tim Blake Nelson 'The persistence, empathy and painstaking research of The Ground Breaking move us much closer to the justice that the victims of Greenwood, and the people of America, deserve. Heartbreaking and inspiring.' Beto O'Rourke

The Precipice: Neoliberalism, the Pandemic and the Urgent Need for Radical Change Audiobook

The Precipice: Neoliberalism, the Pandemic and the Urgent Need for Radical Change

Author: C. J. Polychroniou, Noam Chomsky Narrator: Ako Mitchell Release Date: June 2021

Brought to you by Penguin. In this powerful collection of interviews, Noam Chomsky exposes the problems of our world today, as we stand in this period of monumental change, preparing for a more hopeful tomorrow. 'For the left, elections are a brief interlude in a life of real politics, a moment to ask whether it's worth taking time off to vote . . . Then back to work. The work will be to move forward to construct the better world that is within reach.' He sheds light into the phenomenon of right-wing populism, and exposes the catastrophic nature and impact of authoritarian policies on people, the environment and the planet as a whole. He captures the dynamics of the brutal class warfare launched by the masters of capital to maintain and even enhance the features of a dog-eat-dog society. And he celebrates the recent unprecedented mobilizations of millions of people internationally against neoliberal capitalism, racism and police violence. We stand at a precipice and we must fight to pull the world back from it. © Noam Chomsky, C.J. Polychroniou 2021 (P) Penguin Audio 2021

White Freedom: The Racial History of an Idea Audiobook

White Freedom: The Racial History of an Idea

Author: Tyler Stovall Narrator: Ako Mitchell Release Date: January 2021

This audiobook narrated by Ako Mitchell exposes the racist legacy behind the Western idea of freedom The era of the Enlightenment, which gave rise to our modern conceptions of freedom and democracy, was also the height of the trans-Atlantic slave trade. America, a nation founded on the principle of liberty, is also a nation built on African slavery, Native American genocide, and systematic racial discrimination. White Freedom traces the complex relationship between freedom and race from the eighteenth century to today, revealing how being free has meant being white. Tyler Stovall explores the intertwined histories of racism and freedom in France and the United States, the two leading nations that have claimed liberty as the heart of their national identities. He explores how French and American thinkers defined freedom in racial terms and conceived of liberty as an aspect and privilege of whiteness. He discusses how the Statue of Liberty-a gift from France to the United States and perhaps the most famous symbol of freedom on Earth-promised both freedom and whiteness to European immigrants. Taking readers from the Age of Revolution to today, Stovall challenges the notion that racism is somehow a paradox or contradiction within the democratic tradition, demonstrating how white identity is intrinsic to Western ideas about liberty. Throughout the history of modern Western liberal democracy, freedom has long been white freedom. A major work of scholarship that is certain to draw a wide readership and transform contemporary debates, White Freedom provides vital new perspectives on the inherent racism behind our most cherished beliefs about freedom, liberty, and human rights.
