Author: Christine S. Richard Narrator: Caroline Shaffer Release Date: July 2020

Its heart is the story of how hedge fund manager Bill Ackman warned that MBIA Inc., a little-known insurance company, had guaranteed nearly a trillion dollars of debt. Branded a fraud in the financial press, Ackman, a short seller who stood to gain billions from the bankruptcy of the company was investigated by the Eliot Spitzer and by the Securities Exchange Commission.

Locavesting: The Revolution in Local Investing and How to Profit From It Audiobook

Locavesting: The Revolution in Local Investing and How to Profit From It

Author: Amy Cortese Narrator: Caroline Shaffer Release Date: July 2020

We buy local and eat local. So why is it so hard to invest local? The truth is, our financial markets have evolved to serve big business, a fact only underscored by the recent financial crisis and bailout. Wall Street has come roaring back, but Main Street is fighting for its life. In catering to those companies deemed too big too fail, weve created a new group that could be labeled too small too succeed. Author Amy Cortese believes that by investing locally, in the companies that create jobs and healthy communities, we can begin to rebuild the economy and repair our tattered financial system Locavesting is a how- to guide for investing locally and explores the emerging phenomenon of locavesting through narrative accounts of people like Dante Hess, Chris Lindstrom and Woody Tasch, who are the pioneers of this movement -- the Muhammad Yunuss of the capital markets. She also illustrates how, in many ways, locavesting is a return to the very roots of our economic system -- and our humanity. The book offers a totally fresh perspective on investing and explores powerful new ideas for making capitalism work again for the rest of us.

This groundbreaking multicultural anthology shares moving personal stories about the impacts of Alzheimer’s and dementia. An estimated 5.7 million Americans are afflicted by Alzheimer’s disease, including ten percent of those over sixty-five, and it is the sixth leading cause of death. But its effects are more pervasive: For the nearly six million sufferers, there are more than sixteen million family caregivers and many more family members. Alzheimer’s wreaks havoc not only on brain cells—it is a disease of the spirit and heart for not only those who suffer from it, but also for their families. This groundbreaking anthology presents forty narratives, both nonfiction and fiction, that together capture the impact and complexity of Alzheimer’s and other dementias on patients, as well as their caregivers and family. Deeply personal, recounting the wrenching course of a disease that kills a loved one twice—first they forget who they are, and then the body succumbs—these stories also show how witnessing the disease and caring for someone with it can be powerfully transformative, calling forth amazing strength and grace.

Glass Slippers, Ever After, and Me

Author: Julie Wright Narrator: Caroline Shaffer Release Date: January 2020

Charlotte Kingsley loves to write and dreams of having her reimagined fairy tales published, but she keeps getting rejected over and over. And to top it all off, her best friend, Anders, gets engaged, making her realize she's going to lose the Prince Charming who lives next door. After yet another rejection letter, Charlotte decides to switch gears. What if she wrote a book about celebrating women for who they really are instead of trying to create a fantasy world for them to visit? She could call it The Cinderella Fiction, fill it with practical advice for living authentically, become ridiculously successful, and then find the confidence to tell Anders how she feels before it's too late. Encouraged with her plan, Charlotte's new book practically writes itself, and a small publisher offers to publish it. As it's a small company with limited resources, Charlotte decides to sink money into hiring a premier publicity firm to make her book a bestseller. She also discovers that Anders has called off his engagement and wants to try a relationship with Charlotte. Suddenly her fairy tale dreams seem to be coming true. However, Charlotte's publicist has very specific ideas about how to market the book-and the author. Charlotte, with her average looks, cluttered apartment, and penchant for ice cream, must undergo a total transformation in a social media makeover. People who see Charlotte through a carefully curated Instagram account will relate and naturally want to buy her book. At first, Charlotte is excited to enter this fantasy world and play "dress up," and Anders reluctantly agrees to go along with it, even though it means he's largely out of the picture. But the toll of her new life soon proves exhausting. Telling women to "be authentic" even while she herself is undergoing elaborating staging to get just the right image makes her feel like a fraud. Meanwhile, her relationship with Anders is falling apart, since he suspects their relationship is just another one of her carefully curated images. Charlotte must decide what she believes in: the fairy tale persona or the woman Anders has always loved-before he's gone forever.
