The Skinny Audiobook

The Skinny

Author: Jonathan Wells Narrator: Arthur Morey Release Date: November 2021

"Everyone had a clearer vision of my body than I did. It didn't feel as if my body was really mine." At fourteen-years-old, Jonathan Wells weighed just 67 pounds, igniting a scrutinizing persecution of his body that followed him into adulthood.As a boy in preparatory day school in upstate New York in the 1970s, Wells's teacher abuses and humiliates him for his size, forcing Wells, for the first time, to question his right to take up space in the world. Wells's father, reading his weight as a clear deficit of masculinity, and perhaps sexuality, creates a workout regimen meant to bulk him up. When that doesn't help, he has Wells seen by a slew of specialists, all claiming he is in perfect health, and yet the problem cannot be denied: he is simply too skinny.Wells's complicated relationship with his charming but elusive mother does not help matters. As the eldest son, he is privy to the struggles of a fraying marriage in which he, however slight, plays a divisive role. Wells is sent to boarding school in Switzerland, where his size continues to generate controversy, from the merely rude to the violently abusive. And yet, even as he manages to establish an identity of his own, one which must invariably contend with gender norms and conventions, his father's obsession with his size follows him to Europe, threatening to destroy the space he has painstakingly won for himself.As he grows into an adult, combatting the intrusive liberties others take with his body, Jonathan must define masculinity for himself, ultimately coming to terms with the damage of a father's love.The critically acclaimed poet and author of the collection Debris, Jonathan Wells gives us a thoughtful, candid, and powerful memoir about the universal exploration of adolescence and self-image, the frailty of masculinity, and all the places we seek comfort in a world trying to redefine us.

Our National Forests: Stories from America's Most Important Public Lands Audiobook

Our National Forests: Stories from America's Most Important Public Lands

Author: Greg M. Peters Narrator: Arthur Morey Release Date: November 2021

The 193 million acres covered by the National Forests, land that includes forests, mountains, deserts, and grasslands, are called “The People’s Lands” for a reason. More accessible than our national parks, more geographically diverse than Bureau of Land Management lands, and vaster than wildlife reserves, America’s National Forests welcome more than 170 million people every year. With Our National Forests, Greg Peters reveals the challenges and successes contained within these forests, and what the future may hold for these amazing places. From the story of how the Forest Service grows millions of seedlings in the West each year, to their efforts to save the hellbender salamander (aka “the last dinosaur”) in Appalachia, the narrative will span the breadth of the country and its diverse ecology. People are at the center of the stories, whether the dedicated folks in the Forest Service, or the everyday citizens who support and tend to the protected lands near their homes.

How God Works: The Science Behind the Benefits of Religion Audiobook

How God Works: The Science Behind the Benefits of Religion

Author: David DeSteno Narrator: Arthur Morey Release Date: September 2021

Drawing on a wealth of new evidence, pioneering research psychologist David DeSteno shows why religious practices and rituals are so beneficial to those who follow them—and to anyone, regardless of their faith (or lack thereof). Scientists are beginning to discover what believers have known for a long time: the rewards that a religious life can provide. For millennia, people have turned to priests, rabbis, imams, shamans, and others to help them deal with issues of grief and loss, birth and death, morality and meaning. In this absorbing work, DeSteno reveals how numerous religious practices from around the world improve emotional and physical well-being. With empathy and rigor, DeSteno chronicles religious rites and traditions from cradle to grave. He explains how the Japanese rituals surrounding childbirth help strengthen parental bonds with children. He describes how the Apache Sunrise Ceremony makes teenage girls better able to face the rigors of womanhood. He shows how Buddhist meditation reduces hostility and increases compassion. He demonstrates how the Jewish practice of sitting shiva comforts the bereaved. And much more. DeSteno details how belief itself enhances physical and mental health. But you don't need to be religious to benefit from the trove of wisdom that religion has to offer. Many items in religion's "toolbox" can help the body and mind whether or not one believes. How God Works offers advice on how to incorporate many of these practices to help all of us live more meaningful, successful, and satisfying lives.

Rationality: What It Is, Why It Seems Scarce, Why It Matters Audiobook

Rationality: What It Is, Why It Seems Scarce, Why It Matters

Author: Steven Pinker Narrator: Arthur Morey Release Date: September 2021

Brought to you by Penguin. Can reading a book make you more rational? Can it help you understand why there is so much irrationality in the world? These are the goals of Rationality, Steven Pinker's follow-up to Enlightenment Now. In the twenty-first century, humanity is reaching new heights of scientific understanding - and at the same time appears to be losing its mind. How can a species that developed vaccines for Covid-19 in less than a year produce so much fake news, quack cures and conspiracy theorizing? Pinker rejects the cynical cliché that humans are an irrational species - cavemen out of time saddled with biases, fallacies and illusions. After all, we discovered the laws of nature, lengthened and enriched our lives and set the benchmarks for rationality itself. Instead, he explains that we think in ways that are sensible in the low-tech contexts in which we spend most of our lives, but fail to take advantage of the powerful tools of reasoning we have built up over the millennia: logic, critical thinking, probability, correlation and causation, and decision-making. These tools are not a standard part of our educational curricula, and have never been presented clearly and entertainingly in a single book - until now. Rationality also explores its opposite: how the rational pursuit of self-interest, sectarian solidarity and uplifting mythology by individuals can add up to crippling irrationality in a society. Collective rationality depends on norms that are explicitly designed to promote objectivity and truth. Rationality matters. It leads to better choices in our lives and in the public sphere, and is the ultimate driver of social justice and moral progress. Brimming with insight and humour, Rationality will enlighten, inspire and empower. © Steven Pinker 2021 (P) Penguin Audio 2021

The Great Dissenter: The Story of John Marshall Harlan, America's Judicial Hero Audiobook

The Great Dissenter: The Story of John Marshall Harlan, America's Judicial Hero

Author: Peter S. Canellos Narrator: Arthur Morey Release Date: June 2021

The definitive, sweeping biography of an American hero who stood against all the forces of Gilded Age America to fight for civil rights and economic freedom: Supreme Court Justice John Marshall Harlan. They say that history is written by the victors. But not in the case of the most famous dissenter on the Supreme Court. Almost a century after his death, it was John Marshall Harlan's words that helped end segregation, and gave us our civil rights and our modern economic freedom. But his legacy would not have been possible without the courage of Robert Harlan, a slave who John's father raised like a son in the same household. After the Civil War, Robert emerges as a political leader. With Black people holding power in the Republican Party, it is Robert who helps John land his appointment to the Supreme Court. At first, John is awed by his fellow justices, but the country is changing. Northern whites are prepared to take away black rights to appease the South. Giant trusts are monopolizing entire industries. Against this onslaught, the Supreme Court seemed all too willing to strip away civil rights and invalidate labor protections. As case after case comes before the court, challenging his core values, John makes a fateful decision: He breaks with his colleagues in fundamental ways, becoming the nation's prime defender of the rights of Black people, immigrant laborers, and people in distant lands occupied by the United States. Harlan's dissents, particularly in Plessy v. Ferguson, were widely read and a source of hope for decades. Thurgood Marshall called Harlan's Plessy dissent his "Bible"—and his legal roadmap to overturning segregation. In the end, Harlan's words built the foundations for the legal revolutions of the New Deal and Civil Rights eras. Spanning from the Civil War to the Civil Rights movement and beyond, The Great Dissenter is an epic rendering of the American legal system's greatest failures and most inspiring successes.

The Outlier: The Unfinished Presidency of Jimmy Carter Audiobook

The Outlier: The Unfinished Presidency of Jimmy Carter

Author: Kai Bird Narrator: Arthur Morey Release Date: June 2021

"Important . . . [a] landmark presidential biography . . . Bird is able to build a persuasive case that the Carter presidency deserves this new look."-The New York Times Book Review An essential re-evaluation of the complex triumphs and tragedies of Jimmy Carter's presidential legacy-from the expert biographer and Pulitzer Prize-winning co-author of American Prometheus Four decades after Ronald Reagan's landslide win in 1980, Jimmy Carter's one-term presidency is often labeled a failure; indeed, many Americans view Carter as the only ex-president to have used the White House as a stepping-stone to greater achievements. But in retrospect the Carter political odyssey is a rich and human story, marked by both formidable accomplishments and painful political adversity. In this deeply researched, brilliantly written account, Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer Kai Bird expertly unfolds the Carter saga as a tragic tipping point in American history. As president, Carter was not merely an outsider; he was an outlier. He was the only president in a century to grow up in the heart of the Deep South, and his born-again Christianity made him the most openly religious president in memory. This outlier brought to the White House a rare mix of humility, candor, and unnerving self-confidence that neither Washington nor America was ready to embrace. Decades before today's public reckoning with the vast gulf between America's ethos and its actions, Carter looked out on a nation torn by race and demoralized by Watergate and Vietnam and prescribed a radical self-examination from which voters recoiled. The cost of his unshakable belief in doing the right thing would be losing his re-election bid-and witnessing the ascendance of Reagan. In these remarkable pages, Bird traces the arc of Carter's administration, from his aggressive domestic agenda to his controversial foreign policy record, taking readers inside the Oval Office and through Carter's battles with both a political establishment and a Washington press corps that proved as adversarial as any foreign power. Bird shows how issues still hotly debated today-from national health care to growing inequality and racism to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict-burned at the heart of Carter's America, and consumed a president who found a moral duty in solving them. Drawing on interviews with Carter and members of his administration and recently declassified documents, Bird delivers a profound, clear-eyed evaluation of a leader whose legacy has been deeply misunderstood. The Outlier is the definitive account of an enigmatic presidency-both as it really happened and as it is remembered in the American consciousness.

Above the Reich: Deadly Dogfights, Blistering Bombing Raids, and Other War Stories from the Greatest Audiobook

Above the Reich: Deadly Dogfights, Blistering Bombing Raids, and Other War Stories from the Greatest

Sensational eyewitness accounts from the most heroic and legendary American aviators of World War II, never before published as a book They are voices lost to time. Beginning in the late 1970s, five veteran airmen sat for private interviews. Decades after the guns fell silent, they recounted in vivid detail the most dangerous missions that made the difference in the war. Ed Haydon dueled with the deadliest of German aces--and forced him to the ground. Robert Johnson racked up twenty-seven kills in his P-47 Thunderbolt, but nearly lost his life when his plane was shot to ribbons and his guns jammed. Cigar-chomping Curtis LeMay was the Air Corps general who devised the bomber tactics that pummeled Germany's war machine. Robin Olds was a West Point football hero who became one of the most dogged, aggressive fighter pilots in the European theater, relentlessly pursuing Germans in his P-38 Lightning. And Jimmy Doolittle became the most celebrated American airman of the war--maybe even of all time--after he led the audacious raid to bomb Tokyo. Today these heroes are long gone, but now, in this incredible volume, they tell their stories in their own words.

The Sea We Swim In: How Stories Work in a Data-Driven World Audiobook

The Sea We Swim In: How Stories Work in a Data-Driven World

Author: Frank Rose Narrator: Arthur Morey Release Date: June 2021

A practical guide to 'narrative thinking,' and why it matters in a world defined by data. In The Sea We Swim In, Frank Rose leads us to a new understanding of stories and their role in our lives. For decades, experts from many fields—psychologists, economists, advertising and marketing executives—failed to register the power of narrative. Scientists thought stories were frivolous. Economists were knee-deep in theory. Marketers just wanted to cut to the sales pitch. Yet stories, not reasoning, are the key to persuasion. Whether we’re aware of it or not, stories determine how we view the world and our place in it. That means the tools of professional storytellers—character, world, detail, voice—can unlock a way of thinking that’s ideal for an age in which we don’t passively consume media but actively participate in it. Building on insights from cognitive psychology and neuroscience, Rose shows us how to see the world in narrative terms, not as a thesis to be argued or a pitch to be made but as a story to be told. Leading brands and top entertainment professionals already understand the vast potential of storytelling. From Warby Parker to Mailchimp to The Walking Dead, Rose explains how they use stories to establish their identity and turn ordinary people into fans—and how you can do the same.

Rethinking Competitive Advantage: New Rules for the Digital Age Audiobook

Rethinking Competitive Advantage: New Rules for the Digital Age

Author: Ram Charan Narrator: Arthur Morey Release Date: April 2021

Brought to you by Penguin. From the million-copy-bestselling author of Execution Welcome to the age of big tech. The old rules no longer apply. How do companies get ahead in the digital age? In this lively, accessible guide, Ram Charan - bestselling author and advisor to some of the world's top CEOs - reveals that the tech giants have radically rewritten the rules of business. If you want to be competitive, you need to learn to play a new game. Drawing on behind-the-scenes stories from the likes of Netflix, Amazon and Alibaba, Charan sketches out a map of today's business landscape. He shows that the biggest companies succeed because they adhere to a simple rule: pick a single customer experience, then build a platform that transforms it from start to finish. It's a principle that has already revolutionised how the world watches movies (Netflix), goes shopping (Amazon) and browses the internet (Google). But this approach needn't be the preserve of Silicon Valley. By studying the tech giants' methods, Charan has uncovered the eight principles that any company can use to tap into their ecosystems: from homing in obsessively on individual customers' experiences, to using big data to inform every decision, to forging an ambitious culture among employees. And he offers a practical toolbox for implementing these lessons in your business, starting today. Whether you're a C-suite executive or a fledgling entrepreneur, your company can beat the competition in the era of big tech. This book will show you how. 'The most influential consultant alive.'

George Washington: The Political Rise of America's Founding Father Audiobook

George Washington: The Political Rise of America's Founding Father

Author: David O. Stewart Narrator: Arthur Morey Release Date: February 2021

A fascinating and illuminating account of how George Washington became the single most dominant force in the creation of the United States of America, from award-winning author David O. Stewart Washington's rise constitutes one of the greatest self-reinventions in history. In his midtwenties, this third son of a modest Virginia planter had ruined his own military career thanks to an outrageous ego. But by his midforties, that headstrong, unwise young man had evolved into an unassailable leader chosen as the commander in chief of the fledgling Continental Army. By his midfifties, he was unanimously elected the nation's first president. How did Washington emerge from the wilderness to become the central founder of the United States of America? In this remarkable new portrait, award-winning historian David O. Stewart unveils the political education that made Washington a master politician-and America's most essential leader. From Virginia's House of Burgesses, where Washington learned the craft and timing of a practicing politician, to his management of local government as a justice of the Fairfax County Court to his eventual role in the Second Continental Congress and his grueling generalship in the American Revolution, Washington perfected the art of governing and service, earned trust, and built bridges. The lessons in leadership he absorbed along the way would be invaluable during the early years of the republic as he fought to unify the new nation.
