Hangdog Days: Conflict, Change, and the Race for 5.14 Audiobook

Hangdog Days: Conflict, Change, and the Race for 5.14

Author: Jeff Smoot Narrator: Danny Campbell Release Date: June 2019

Hangdog Days vividly chronicles the era when rock climbing exploded in popularity, attracting a new generation of talented climbers eager to reach new heights via harder routes and faster ascents. This contentious, often entertaining period gave rise to sport climbing, climbing gyms, and competitive climbing-indelibly transforming the sport. Jeff Smoot was one of those brash young climbers, and here he traces the development of traditional climbing 'rules,' enforced first through peer pressure, then later through intimidation and sabotage. In the late '70s, several climbers began introducing new tactics including 'hangdogging,' hanging on gear to practice moves, that the old guard considered cheating. As more climbers broke ranks with traditional style, the new gymnastic approach pushed the limits of climbing from 5.12 to 5.13. When French climber Jean-Baptiste Tribout ascended To Bolt or Not to Be, 5.14a, at Smith Rock in 1986, he cracked a barrier many people had considered impenetrable. In his lively, fast-paced history enriched with insightful firsthand experience, Smoot focuses on the climbing achievements of three of the era's superstars: John Bachar, Todd Skinner, and Alan Watts, while not neglecting the likes of Ray Jardine, Lynn Hill, Mark Hudon, Tony Yaniro, and Peter Croft.

Love in the Afternoon: A Dove Pond eNovella Audiobook

Love in the Afternoon: A Dove Pond eNovella

Author: Karen Hawkins Narrator: Danny Campbell, George Newbern, Tavia Gilbert Release Date: June 2019

A woman with a legendary green thumb, a man living in an emotional desert, and a small boy unable to connect with others. Can the three of them, with a little help from the charmed town of Dove Pond (and a pesky ghost), turn a nightmare into a fairytale and forge their own happily ever after? Young widow Sofia Rodriquez has just accepted the position of greenhouse manager for Ava Dove's booming herbal tea business. Sofia is delighted to have found a job that will make use of her gardening skills and allow her to spend time with her son, Noah, who has been diagnosed with Asperger's. Adding to her joy is the charming farmhouse she's renting on the edge of Dove Pond. The only cloud on Sofia's horizon is her next door neighbor, Jake, whose yard is a thorny jungle worthy of Sleeping Beauty. Soon enough, Sofia discovers that Jake himself is just as thorny and unpleasant as his yard. After his fiancé left him, work-from-home IT whiz and game developer Jake Klaine has gone from Prince Charming to complete hermit. But Jake isn't really alone; he's living with a ghost: a (formerly) hairy man named Doyle who's a fan of bad puns and who refuses to leave Jake's bathtub. This is nothing new for Jake, as he's been talking to ghosts since he was a boy. He finds real people harder to deal with, like the kid next door who won't stop bugging him about the new game he's developing. Sofia and Jake know all too well that life isn't a game. They've both lost the person they loved most. But under the watchful eye of the ghostly Doyle and Sofia's new friend Ava, who has abilities of her own, Jake and Sofia decide to take a chance and let in an outsider. Soon they discover that, with a little magic, even the thorniest walls are no match for the innocent trust of a lonely child and the fierce determination of a woman wielding a razor-sharp pruner and a heart big enough to make even the most stubborn flower bloom.

Before I Wake Audiobook

Before I Wake

Author: David Morrell Narrator: Cassandra Campbell, Danny Campbell Release Date: June 2019

Before I Wake is David Morrell's third short-story collection and his first since the 2004 publication of Nightscape. It's been a long wait between these volumes, but the wait has now ended in spectacular fashion. Morrell, of course, has long been an acknowledged master of the authentic, edge-of-your-seat action thriller, and that aspect of his talent is on full display in such stories as 'My Name Is Legion' and 'The Interrogator.' But there are other types of stories here as well. Some, such as 'Time Was' and 'The Companions,' reflect the early influence of such seminal writers as Rod Serling and Ray Bradbury. An assortment of literary figures, among them J. D. Salinger ('The Architecture of Snow'), Arthur Conan Doyle ('The Spiritualist'), and Laura Ingalls Wilder ('They') make vivid, often surprising appearances in this volume. Before I Wake is a thriller fan's dream, a rich, resonant collection that reminds us, once again, of its author's enduring and unmistakable importance. This is popular fiction as it should be written. It doesn't get better than this. Note: Due to licensing conflicts, the stories 'The Abelard Sanction' and 'The Opium-Eater' do not appear in this audio recording.

Everyday Chaos: Technology, Complexity, and How We're Thriving in a New World of Possibility Audiobook

Everyday Chaos: Technology, Complexity, and How We're Thriving in a New World of Possibility

Author: David Weinberger Narrator: Danny Campbell Release Date: May 2019

Artificial intelligence, big data, modern science, and the internet are all revealing a fundamental truth: The world is vastly more complex and unpredictable than we've allowed ourselves to see. Now that technology is enabling us to take advantage of all the chaos it's revealing, our understanding of how things happen is changing--and with it our deepest strategies for predicting, preparing for, and managing our world. This affects everything, from how we approach our everyday lives to how we make moral decisions and how we run our businesses. Take machine learning, which makes better predictions about weather, medical diagnoses, and product performance than we do--but often does so at the expense of our understanding of how it arrived at those predictions. While this can be dangerous, accepting it is also liberating, for it enables us to harness the complexity of an immense amount of data around us. We are also turning to strategies that avoid anticipating the future altogether, such as A/B testing, Minimum Viable Products, open platforms, and user-modifiable video games. We even take for granted that a simple hashtag can organize unplanned, leaderless movements such as #MeToo. Through stories from history, business, and technology, philosopher and technologist David Weinberger finds the unifying truths lying below the surface of the tools we take for granted--and a future in which our best strategy often requires holding back from anticipating and instead creating as many possibilities as we can. The book’s imperative for business and beyond is simple: Make. More. Future. The result is a world no longer focused on limitations but optimized for possibilities.

Biloxi: A Novel Audiobook

Biloxi: A Novel

Author: Mary Miller Narrator: Danny Campbell Release Date: May 2019

Mary Miller seizes the mantle of Southern literature with this wry tale of middle age and the unexpected turns a life can take. Like her predecessors Ann Beattie and Raymond Carver, Mary Miller brings an essential voice to her generation. Building on her critically acclaimed novel The Last Days of California and her biting collection Always Happy Hour, Miller slyly transports listeners to her unapologetic corner of the South-this time, Biloxi, Mississippi, home to sixty-three-year-old Louis McDonald, Jr. His wife of thirty-seven years left him, his father has passed-and he has impulsively retired from his job in anticipation of an inheritance check that may not come. In the meantime, he watches reality television, sips beer, and avoids his ex-wife and daughter. One day, he stops at a house advertising free dogs and meets overweight mixed-breed Layla. Unexpectedly, Louis takes her, and, newly invigorated, begins investigating local dog parks and buying extra bologna. Mining the absurdities of life with her signature 'droll minimalist's-eye view of America' (Joyce Carol Oates), Biloxi affirms Miller's place in contemporary literature.

Becoming a Real Estate Agent

Author: Tom Chiarella Narrator: Danny Campbell Release Date: April 2019

Choosing a profession begins with imagining yourself in a career: here are all the details you need to get started in the popular field of real estate—from salary expectations, regional challenges, and how to use social media to your lucrative advantage. What makes a great real estate agent? Is it just numbers? Sales volume? How do you get to the top of the market in boom times? How do you survive a soft market? What tools must you bring to the job? Is it at all like those reality shows on TV? Starting in his own backyard, Esquire writer Tom Chiarella explores the requisite skills needed to thrive in various real estate scenarios: a static buyer's market in rural Indiana, a booming seller's market in Seattle, and the incredibly high-end market of Chicago's luxury high-rises. Forming a personal connection with each of his subjects, he watches them work in the front seat of their cars, at lunches, on street corners, and in the doorways of homes. What Chiarella discovers is that great real estate agents devote themselves to the job with a sense of craftsmanship. Showcasing the individual tools used to develop a successful real estate career, Becoming a Real Estate Agent profiles individuals who live a life of thrilling improvisation, action, and instinct—a life in which excellence is sometimes gauged by the ability to walk away from a commission when circumstance demands it.

The Perilous Adventures of the Cowboy King: A Novel of Teddy Roosevelt and His Times Audiobook

The Perilous Adventures of the Cowboy King: A Novel of Teddy Roosevelt and His Times

Author: Jerome Charyn Narrator: Danny Campbell Release Date: March 2019

Raising the literary bar to a new level, Jerome Charyn re-creates the voice of Theodore Roosevelt, the New York City police commissioner, Rough Rider, and soon-to-be twenty-sixth president through his derring-do adventures, effortlessly combining superhero dialogue with haunting pathos. Beginning with his sickly childhood and concluding with McKinley's assassination, the novel positions Roosevelt as a 'perfect bull in a china shop,' a fearless crime fighter and pioneering environmentalist who would grow up to be our greatest peacetime president. With an operatic cast, including 'Bamie,' his handicapped older sister; Eleanor, his gawky little niece; as well as the devoted Rough Riders, the novel memorably features the lovable mountain lion Josephine, who helped train Roosevelt for his 'crowded hour,' the charge up San Juan Hill. Lauded by Jonathan Lethem for his 'polymorphous imagination and crack comic timing,' Charyn has created a classic of historical fiction, confirming his place as 'one of the most important writers in American literature' (Michael Chabon).

Embracing the Journey: A Christian Parents' Blueprint to Loving Your LGBTQ Child Audiobook

Embracing the Journey: A Christian Parents' Blueprint to Loving Your LGBTQ Child

Author: Greg Mcdonald, Lynn Mcdonald Narrator: Cassandra Campbell, Danny Campbell Release Date: March 2019

A sympathetic, compassionate, and inspiring guide for parents, from the founders of one of the first Christian ministries for parents of LGBTQ children. Greg and Lynn McDonald had never interacted with members of the LGBTQ community until they discovered that their son was gay—and without resources or support, they had no idea how to handle this discovery. At first they tried to "fix" him, to no avail. But even in the earliest days of their journey, the McDonalds clung to two absolutes: they would love God, and they would love their son. This book follows the McDonald family's journey over the next twenty years, from a place of grief to a place of gratitude and acceptance that led the McDonalds' to start one of the first Christian ministries for parents of LGBTQ children. Based on their experience from counseling and coaching hundreds of struggling Christian parents, they offer tools for understanding your own emotional patterns and spiritual challenges. They also help you experience a deeper relationship with God while handling difficult or unexpected situations that are out of your control. You will discover tested principles, patterns, and spiritual lessons that can change the way we all see our families, and help Christians at large think though Christ-like ways to respond to the LGBTQ community. Written in an unvarnished, honest, reassuring, and relatable voice, this is a practical guide for parents and a roadmap to learning to love God, the people He created, and the church, even when they seem to be at odds.
