It is a guide for anyone in business, and a great read for everyone who loves a rags-to-riches story. Filled with encouragement, inspiration, and empowerment, including: How Worthy Cause Marketing out performed paid advertisingHow boot-strapping was used instead of conventional financingThe surprising advantages of being small and brokeHow creating a fun, yet hardworking company culture encouraged innovative leadershipIf you like wine, the wine country, or a story about how a plucky couple disrupted an industry, if you want to know what it takes to really succeed in the face of adversity, if you want to know how to use your core beliefs to build a national brand, then The Barefoot Spirit is for you.

The Grouchy Historian: An Old-Time Lefty Defends Our Constitution Against Right-Wing Hypocrites and  Audiobook

The Grouchy Historian: An Old-Time Lefty Defends Our Constitution Against Right-Wing Hypocrites and

Author: Ed Asner, Ed Weinberger, Ed. Weinberger Narrator: Ed Asner Release Date: October 2017

In the tradition of Al Franken and Michael Moore, Ed Asner-a.k.a. Lou Grant from The Mary Tyler Moore Show-reclaims the Constitution from the right-wingers who think that they and only they know how to interpret it. Ed Asner, a self-proclaimed dauntless Democrat from the old days, figured that if the right-wing wackos are wrong about voter fraud, Obama's death panels, and climate change, they are probably just as wrong about what the Constitution says. There's no way that two hundred-plus years later, the right-wing ideologues know how to interpret the Constitution. On their way home from Philadelphia the people who wrote it couldn't agree on what it meant. What was the president's job? Who knew? All they knew was that the president was going to be George Washington and as long as he was in charge, that was good enough. When Hamilton wanted to start a national bank, Madison told him that it was unconstitutional. Both men had been in the room when the Constitution was written. And now today there are politicians and judges who claim that they know the original meaning of the Constitution. Are you kidding? In The Grouchy Historian, Ed Asner leads the charge for liberals to reclaim the Constitution from the right-wingers who use it as their justification for doing whatever terrible thing they want to do, which is usually to comfort the comfortable and afflict the afflicted. It's about time someone gave them hell and explained that progressives can read, too.

God’s Eye Audiobook

God’s Eye

A demon… Every soul he claims is another chance to advance, until he can walk among us, look like us, make us believe in him. The only thing holding him back is… An angel… The rules of the realm bind him from fighting on the demon’s terms. But this is his chance to steal something away from the demon, to steal the thing the demon wants most… A woman who must choose… A woman who has been chosen, Katharine is suddenly a pawn in a game in which the rules and the stakes are beyond her comprehension. She must take a side even though she can’t tell angel from demon. And in the end, they will all be judged. “As heiress to a Fortune 500 company, Katherine is always suspicious of new men who enter her life. Little does she know that the two newest men in her life represent opposite sides of a force that threatens reality itself. Nor does she know she’s the key to the future. God’s Eye is another wonderful audio-movie recorded at Skyboat Studios. It’s a bit reminiscent of the Twilight movies, with its handsome monsters and beautiful women, but there’s more to it than surface beauty. The production is flawless, down to the funky noises and jarring sounds designed to awaken listeners en route to work in the morning. Stefan Rudnicki heads a cast that includes Kathe Mazur, Joe Barrett, and an all-too-short appearance by Ed Asner.”—AudioFile
