Collaborative Society Audiobook

Collaborative Society

Author: Aleksandra Przegalinska, Dariusz Jemielniak Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: March 2020

Humans are hard-wired for collaboration, and new technologies of communication act as a super-amplifier of our natural collaborative mindset. This volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series examines the emergence of a new kind of social collaboration enabled by networked technologies. This new collaborative society might be characterized as a series of services and startups that enable peer-to-peer exchanges and interactions though technology. Some believe that the economic aspects of the new collaboration have the potential to make society more equitable; others see collaborative communities based on sharing as a cover for social injustice and user exploitation. The book covers the 'sharing economy,' and the hijacking of the term by corporations; different models of peer production, and motivations to participate; collaborative media production and consumption, the definitions of 'amateur' and 'professional,' and the power of memes; hactivism and social movements, including Anonymous and anti-ACTA protest; collaborative knowledge creation, including citizen science; collaborative self-tracking; and internet-mediated social relations, as seen in the use of Instagram, Snapchat, and Tinder. Finally, the book considers the future of these collaborative tendencies and the disruptions caused by fake news, bots, and other challenges.

A Meal with Jesus: Discovering Grace, Community, and Mission around the Table Audiobook

A Meal with Jesus: Discovering Grace, Community, and Mission around the Table

Author: Tim Chester Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: February 2020

Meals have always been important across societies and cultures, a time for friends and families to come together. An important part of relationships, meals are vital to our social health. Author Tim Chester sums it up: 'Food connects.' Chester argues that meals are also deeply theological-an important part of Christian fellowship and mission. He observes that the book of Luke is full of stories of Jesus at meals. These accounts lay out biblical principles. Chester notes, 'The meals of Jesus represent something bigger.' Six chapters in A Meal with Jesus show how they enact grace, community, hope, mission, salvation, and promise. Moving from biblical times to the modern world, Chester applies biblical truth to challenge our contemporary understandings of hospitality. He urges sacrificial giving and loving around the table, helping listeners consider how meals can be about serving others and sharing the grace of Christ.

Lone Wolf: The Remarkable Story of Britain's Greatest Nightfighter Ace of the Blitz - Flt Lt Richard Audiobook

Lone Wolf: The Remarkable Story of Britain's Greatest Nightfighter Ace of the Blitz - Flt Lt Richard

Author: Andy Saunders, Terry Thompson Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: February 2020

During the Second World War, Flt Lt Richard Stevens led an extraordinary campaign as an RAF nightfighter. Known to contemporaries as 'Cat's Eyes' and by the height of his success in July 1941 as the 'Lone Wolf', Flt Lt Stevens was the RAF's highest scoring nightfighter pilot with fourteen victories. What makes his story unique is that all this was achieved without the aid of radar or another crew member. Instead Flt Lt Stevens used extraordinary skill, instinct, and innate marksmanship. Described as 'one of the greatest nightfighter pilots who ever fought in Fighter Command' by Sir Archibald Sinclair, Secretary of State for Air and with AVM B. E. Embry also crediting 'his high standard of courage and skill as a nightfighter pilot' as a contribution to the final defeat of the enemy at night-it is not hard to see why Stevens was greatly admired by his peers. Thanks to over twenty years of painstaking research by Terry Thompson and a rich resource of documentation and photography, Andy Saunders is now able to tell the exceptional story of one of Britain's finest nightflying pilots of the Second World War. This extraordinary biography will be eagerly devoured by WWII military aviation enthusiasts and students of air warfare.

Mengele: The Complete Story Audiobook

Mengele: The Complete Story

Author: Gerald L. Posner, John Ware Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: January 2020

Based on exclusive and unrestricted access to more than 5,000 pages of personal writings and family photos, this definitive biography of German physician and SS-Hauptsturmfuhrer Josef Mengele (1911-1979) probes the personality and motivations of Auschwitz's 'Angel of Death.' From May 1943 through January 1945, Mengele selected who would be gassed immediately, who would be worked to death, and who would serve as involuntary guinea pigs for his spurious and ghastly human experiments (twins were Mengele's particular obsession). With authority and insight, Mengele examines the entire life of the world's most infamous doctor.

Truth We Can Touch: How Baptism and Communion Shape Our Lives Audiobook

Truth We Can Touch: How Baptism and Communion Shape Our Lives

Author: Tim Chester Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: January 2020

Many Christians often feel confused about the sacraments of baptism and Communion. What is happening when someone goes down into the water in baptism? What's the significance of eating bread and wine together as a church on Sunday mornings? In this book, Tim Chester makes a compelling case that God has given us truth we can touch for a reason: the sacraments embody the promises, grace, and presence of Christ. He looks throughout the Bible to explain how the sacraments are intended to actually shape Christians' lives by giving us physical bread, wine, and water we can point to as an expression of our union with Christ. The aim is to help listeners treasure baptism and Communion and approach them rightly so churches can receive the full benefit God intends them to physically bring us.

Rebel Star: Our Quest to Solve the Great Mysteries of the Sun Audiobook

Rebel Star: Our Quest to Solve the Great Mysteries of the Sun

Author: Colin Stuart Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: November 2019

A fascinating and comprehensive guide to the sun-our home star-and why understanding it is pivotal to our future existence here on Earth. In 1869, a great mystery was born. As astronomers observed a total solar eclipse, for the first time they saw the faint glow of the solar corona, the sun's outer atmosphere. Measurements of a previously unknown wavelength that made up this solar light sparked hot debate among scientists, but it was another sixty years before they discovered that this wavelength was in fact iron being burned at a staggering 3 million degrees Celsius. With the sun's surface only 6,000 degrees, this shouldn't be possible. What we now knew about the sun appeared to defy the laws of physics-and nature. But as well as being shrouded in intriguing mystery, the unpredictable nature of the sun's corona poses a serious threat to our life here on earth-the destructive potential of solar storms, caused by solar material traveling out into space at around 1 million miles an hour, is huge. Remaining beyond our reach until now, a new generation of ambitious solar missions are currently traveling closer to the sun than any previous spacecraft in history. As we enter this unprecedented era of heliophysics, there has never been a better time to get to grips with the workings of our home star.

Twilight of the Gods: A Swedish Waffen-SS Volunteer's Experiences with the 11th SS-Panzergrenadier D Audiobook

Twilight of the Gods: A Swedish Waffen-SS Volunteer's Experiences with the 11th SS-Panzergrenadier D

Author: Tbd Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: October 2019

Twilight of the Gods was originally written in Swedish, and published in Buenos Aires shortly after the end of WWII. Erik Wallin, a Swedish soldier who volunteered for service with the Waffen-SS, participated in the climactic battles on the Eastern Front during late 1944 and 1945, later telling his story to this book's editor, Thorolf Hillblad. Wallin served with the Panzer Reconnaissance Battalion, 11th SS-Panzergrenadier Division Nordland, a unit composed mainly of non-German volunteers, including Danes, Norwegians, and Swedes. The division enjoyed a high reputation for its combat capability, and was always at the focal points of the fighting on the Eastern Front in the last year of the war. During this period it saw combat in the Baltic, in Pomerania, on the Oder, and finally in defense of Berlin, where it was destroyed. Erik Wallin served with his unit in all of these locations, and provides the listener with a fascinating glimpse into these final battles. The book is written with a 'no holds barred' approach which will captivate, excite, and maybe even shock the listener-his recollections do not evade the brutality of fighting against the advancing Red Army. Twilight of the Gods is destined to become a classic memoir of the Second World War.

Seven Nights Audiobook

Seven Nights

Author: Simon Strauss Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: October 2019

It's night time, and a young man sits writing at a table. He's afraid. Afraid of having to decide-on a woman, a group of friends, an annual holiday destination. He's afraid of becoming numb to emotion. Afraid of growing up. But all of that is about to change. When an acquaintance makes him a proposition, our unnamed protagonist is drawn into a scheme where each night at seven o'clock, he must commit one of the seven sins-a task that forces him to decide how far he is truly willing to go in his efforts to stave off habit and ennui and save his own life. The most reviewed, discussed, and recommended German language debut of the last decade, Seven Nights has earned Simon Strauss praise as 'one of the greatest talents of his generation' by the Tagesspiegel newspaper.

Maori: A Novel Audiobook

Maori: A Novel

Author: Alan Dean Foster Narrator: Bruce Mann Release Date: September 2019

A sweeping historical novel set in nineteenth-century New Zealand from the New York Times bestselling author. The only son of a poor British coal miner, Robert Coffin sets sail for the far ends of the Earth in search of his fortune, leaving his young bride and infant child behind in England. In the sordid and dangerous South Pacific port of Kororareka, on the sprawling island the native Maori call 'the Land of the Long White Cloud,' Coffin builds a successful new life as a merchant. He gains an unwavering respect for the aboriginal people and their culture, and finds comfort in the arms of his fiery Irish mistress, Mary. But the unexpected arrival of a China-bound clipper bearing his wife, Holly, and son, Christopher, throws Coffin's world into turmoil-compounded by the ever-increasing tension between the Maori tribes and the mistrusted 'pakehas' who are plundering their land. As the years of a volatile nineteenth century progress, the indomitable family of the stalwart adventurer the Maori have named 'Iron Hair' will struggle, sacrifice, and endure through war, chaos, catastrophe, and change.
