Sid Meier's Memoir!: A Life in Computer Games Audiobook

Sid Meier's Memoir!: A Life in Computer Games

Author: Sid Meier Narrator: Charles Constant Release Date: November 2020

The life and career of the legendary developer celebrated as the 'godfather of computer gaming,' and creator of Civilization. Over his four-decade career, Sid Meier has produced some of the world's most popular video games, including Sid Meier's Civilization, which has sold more than 51 million units worldwide and accumulated more than one billion hours of play. Sid Meier's Memoir! is the story of an obsessive young computer enthusiast who helped launch a multibillion-dollar industry. Writing with warmth and ironic humor, Meier describes the genesis of his influential studio, MicroProse, founded in 1982 after a trip to a Las Vegas arcade, and recounts the development of landmark games, from vintage classics like Pirates! and Railroad Tycoon, to Civilization and beyond. Articulating his philosophy that a video game should be 'a series of interesting decisions,' Meier also shares his perspective on the history of the industry, the psychology of gamers, and fascinating insights into the creative process, including his rules of good game design.

Innovation Capital: How to Compete - and Win - Like the World's Most Innovative Leaders Audiobook

Innovation Capital: How to Compete - and Win - Like the World's Most Innovative Leaders

Author: Curtis Lefrandt, Jeff Dyer, Nathan Furr Narrator: Charles Constant Release Date: November 2020

Great leaders of innovation know that creativity is not enough. They succeed not only on the basis of their ideas, but because they have the vision, reputation, and networks to win the backing needed to commercialize them. It turns out that this quality-called 'innovation capital'-is measurably more important for innovation than just being creative. The authors have spent decades studying how people get great ideas (the subject of The Innovator's DNA) and how people test and develop those ideas (explored in The Innovator's Method). Now they share what they've learned from a multipronged research program designed to determine how people compete for, and obtain, resources to launch new ideas: how you can build a personal reputation for innovation; what techniques you can use to amplify your innovation capital; how you can garner attention for your ideas and projects and persuade audiences to support them; and what it means to provide visionary leadership and how you can achieve it. Featuring interviews with the superstars of innovation-individuals like Jeff Bezos (Amazon), Elon Musk (Tesla), Marc Benioff (Salesforce), Indra Nooyi (PepsiCo), and Shantanu Narayen (Adobe)-this book will help you position yourself and your ideas to compete for attention and resources so that you can launch innovations with impact.

Die for Me: The Terrifying True Story of the Charles Ng/Leonard Lake Torture Murders Audiobook

Die for Me: The Terrifying True Story of the Charles Ng/Leonard Lake Torture Murders

Author: Don Lasseter Narrator: Charles Constant Release Date: October 2020

In 1985, Charles Ng and Leonard Lake were spotted shoplifting. Ng escaped, but Lake's capture led police to a concrete bunker in the Sierra Nevada foothills, where they discovered the grisly evidence of an orgy of sex crimes, torture, and murder that claimed at least sixteen victims. Lake committed suicide: Ng fled to Canada, where he was tracked down and extradited to California. This fourteen-year, $10 million legal case was the costliest and longest criminal prosecution in California history.

The Tough Standard: The Hard Truths About Masculinity and Violence Audiobook

The Tough Standard: The Hard Truths About Masculinity and Violence

Author: Ronald F. Levant, Shana Pryor Narrator: Charles Constant Release Date: September 2020

Men are commonly expected to act 'masculine' (e.g., self-sufficient, stoic, strong, dependable, brave, tough, and hard-working) while avoiding stereotypically 'feminine' traits (e.g., emotional expressivity, empathy, and nurturance). Few, however, realize that these qualities-when taken to the extreme-can cause emotional constriction, substance abuse, depression, aggression, and violence in many men. Further, even though most men are not violent, decades of research has shown that masculinity is distinctly related to sexual and gun violence and men's poorer health. Considering how girls and women have benefited from decades of conversations on navigation of their gender in a changing world, similar processes are urgently needed for boys and men. The Tough Standard connects the dots between masculinity and the present moment in American culture (defined by high-profile movements such as Me Too, March for Our Lives, and Black Lives Matter), synthesizes over four decades of research in the psychology of men and masculinities, and proposes solutions to corresponding social problems.

The Unelected: How an Unaccountable Elite is Governing America Audiobook

The Unelected: How an Unaccountable Elite is Governing America

Author: James R. Copland Narrator: Charles Constant Release Date: September 2020

America is increasingly polarized around elections, but as James R. Copland explains, the unelected control much of the government apparatus that affects our lives. Congress has largely abdicated its authority. "Independent" administrative agencies churn out thousands of new regulations a year. Courts have enabled these agencies to expand their powers beyond those authorized by law?and limited executive efforts to rein in the bureaucratic behemoth. No ordinary citizen today can know what is legal and what is not. Some 300,000 federal crimes exist, 98 percent of which were created by administrative action rather than Congressional lawmaking.The proliferation of rules and the severity of sanctions give enormous discretion to unelected enforcement agents?upending the rule of law. Private attorneys regulate vast swathes of conduct through lawsuits, based upon legal theories never voted upon by the people's elected representatives. A combination of historical accident, decisions by judges and law professors, and self-interested advocacy by the plaintiffs' bar have left the United States with the world's most-expensive litigation system.Finally, state and local officials have increasingly pursued agendas to dictate the terms of national commerce. In reaching beyond their borders, these "new antifederalists" have been subjecting the citizens of Wyoming and Mississippi to the whims of the electorates of New York and San Francisco?inverting the constitutional design.

Liar’s Circus Audiobook

Liar’s Circus

Author: Carl Hoffman Narrator: Charles Constant Release Date: September 2020

In this work of daring and immersive contemporary anthropology, Carl Hoffman, who has written about the most dangerous and remote corners of the world, journeys deep inside Donald Trump’s rallies seeking to understand the strange and powerful tribe that forms the president’s base. This book proceeds from the premise that Donald J. Trump's rallies are a singular and defining force—a kind of Rosetta stone to understanding the Age of Trump. Yet while much remarked upon, the rallies are, in fact, little examined, with the focus almost always on Trump’s latest outrageous statement. But who are the tens of thousands of people who fill America’s stadiums and arenas? What do they see in Trump? And what curious alchemy—between president and adoring crowd—happens there that might explain Trump’s rise? To those on the Left, the rallies are a Black Mass of American politics at which Trump plays high priest, recklessly summoning the darkest forces within the nation. To the MAGA faithful, the rallies are a form of pilgrimage, a joyous ceremony that like all rituals binds people together and makes them feel a part of something bigger than themselves. Both sides would acknowledge that this travelling roadshow (the Wall Street Journal reports there have been more than 550 ticketed campaign events since 2015) is the pressurised, combustible core of Trump’s political power, a meeting of the faithful where Trump is unshackled and his rhetoric reaches its most extreme, with downstream consequences for the rest of the nation. To date, no reporter has sought to understand the rallies as a sociological phenomenon examined from the bottom up. In 2019, Carl Hoffman began to do just this and embedded himself in the Trump rallies. He has stood in line for days with crowds of supporters; he has traveled across the country from Minnesota to Texas to Mississippi interviewing hundreds of attendees and immersing himself in their culture. A former contributing editor to National Geographic Traveler, Hoffman has travelled to 80 countries on assignment; he has written about cannibals in New Guinea, Mumbai’s railways (the deadliest in the world), and the indigenous tribes of Borneo. Now he trains his unique eye on his own country.

Collision on Tenerife: The How and Why of the World's Worst Aviation Disaster Audiobook

Collision on Tenerife: The How and Why of the World's Worst Aviation Disaster

Author: Jon Ziomek Narrator: Charles Constant Release Date: June 2020

The world's worst air disaster happened more than forty years ago on a remote Atlantic Ocean island, when two fully loaded 747 passenger jets collided after a horrendous series of human errors. One of the jets, KLM Flight 4805, was traveling more than 150 miles an hour and was within seconds of lifting off when it crashed into Pan Am Flight 1736 taxiing in its path. The loss of lives was staggering-583 dead. The crash happened after a lengthy series of major and minor human errors. In the intervening years, has aviation advanced to the point that such a disaster can't happen again? In this riveting account, written from the perspective of the passengers in the cabin as well as the crew members in the cockpits, Jon Ziomek explains how this largely forgotten accident took place-and what has happened since to reduce the possibility of another such catastrophe.

Suspicious Minds: Why We Believe Conspiracy Theories Audiobook

Suspicious Minds: Why We Believe Conspiracy Theories

Author: Rob Brotherton Narrator: Charles Constant Release Date: June 2020

Conspiracy theorists do not wear tin-foil hats (for the most part). They are not just a few kooks lurking on the paranoid fringes of society with bizarre ideas about shape-shifting reptilian aliens running society in secret. They walk among us. They are us. Everyone loves a good conspiracy. Yet conspiracy theories are not a recent invention. And they are not always a harmless curiosity. In Suspicious Minds, Rob Brotherton explores the history and consequences of conspiracism, and delves into the research that offers insights into why so many of us are drawn to implausible, unproven and unproveable conspiracy theories. They resonate with some of our brain's built-in quirks and foibles, and tap into some of our deepest desires, fears, and assumptions about the world. The fascinating and often surprising psychology of conspiracy theories tells us a lot-not just why we are drawn to theories about sinister schemes, but about how our minds are wired and, indeed, why we believe anything at all. Conspiracy theories are not some psychological aberration-they're a predictable product of how brains work. This book will tell you why, and what it means.

n of 1: One man's Harvard-documented remission of incurable cancer using only natural methods

Author: Glenn Sabin Narrator: Charles Constant Release Date: May 2020

Twenty-five years ago my doctors had no cure for my cancer. So I went on a quest to find my own treatment. This is my story . . . In 1991, Glenn Sabin was a twenty-eight-year-old newlywed diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)-a disease doctors called 'uniformly fatal.' Treatments could buy him some time and eventually ease his discomfort, but there was no conventional cure. Glenn's prognosis was clear: he was going to die. Although Glenn and his wife, Linda, continued to consult with doctors, cancer specialists and top oncologists, Glenn made a monumental decision: he would become his own health advocate. While he continued to 'watch and wait,' Glenn would figure out how to stay alive. No one could predict when a large-scale clinical trial would discover a cure for CLL, so Glenn began his own, medically monitored and carefully researched lifestyle changes. He would conduct his own, single patient clinical trial. He would become an 'n of 1.' Today, Glenn is not only alive, but a 2012 biopsy at Harvard confirmed that his bone marrow contains no leukemic cells. His case is now part of the medical literature.
