Valedictorians at the Gate: Standing Out, Getting In, and Staying Sane While Applying to College Audiobook

Valedictorians at the Gate: Standing Out, Getting In, and Staying Sane While Applying to College

Author: Becky Munsterer Sabky Narrator: Eliza Foss Release Date: August 2021

An inspiring battle cry for sanity in the college application process that looks beyond the rankings to successfully determine what’s truly the best school for you or your child After spending years as an admissions director at Dartmouth, Becky Sabky had seen it all. The perfect grades, the perfect scores, and the perfect extracurriculars. Valedictorians were knocking at the gate, but Becky realized that in their quest for admission many of these students were missing something. Their transcripts were golden, their interviews polished, but they weren’t applying for college, they were competing for it—and in the end they didn’t know what prize they were really striving for. In Valedictorians at the Gate, Sabky looks beyond the smoke and mirrors of the intimidating admissions gauntlet and places the power firmly where it should be: in the hands of the students themselves. Offering prescriptive, actionable advice for students and their (hopefully not helicoptering) parents, Sabky illuminates the pathway to finding the school that is the ideal match. Witty and warm, informative and inspiring, Valedictorians at the Gate is the needed tonic for overstressed, overworked, and overwhelmed students on their way to the perfect college for them. A Macmillan Audio production from Henry Holt and Company

Saving the News: Why the Constitution Calls for Government Action to Preserve Freedom of Speech Audiobook

Saving the News: Why the Constitution Calls for Government Action to Preserve Freedom of Speech

Author: Martha Minow Narrator: Eliza Foss Release Date: July 2021

In Saving the News, Martha Minow takes stock of the new media landscape. As Minow shows, the First Amendment of the US Constitution assumes the existence and durability of a private industry. Although the First Amendment does not govern the conduct of entirely private enterprises, nothing in the Constitution forecloses government action to regulate concentrated economic power, to require disclosure of who is financing communications, or to support news initiatives where there are market failures. Moreover, the federal government has contributed financial resources, laws, and regulations to develop and shape media in the United States. Thus, Minow argues that the transformation of media from printing presses to the internet was shaped by deliberate government policies that influenced the direction of private enterprise. In short, the government has crafted the direction and contours of America's media ecosystem. Building upon this basic argument, Minow outlines an array of reforms, including a new fairness doctrine, regulating digital platforms as public utilities, using antitrust authority to regulate the media, policing fraud, and more robust funding of public media. As she stresses, such reforms are the kinds of initiatives needed if the First Amendment guarantee of freedom of the press continues to hold meaning in the twenty-first century.

Citadels of Pride: Sexual Abuse, Accountability, and Reconciliation Audiobook

Citadels of Pride: Sexual Abuse, Accountability, and Reconciliation

Author: Martha C. Nussbaum Narrator: Eliza Foss Release Date: May 2021

A groundbreaking exploration of sexual violence by one of our most celebrated experts in law and philosophy. In this essential philosophical and practical reckoning, Martha C. Nussbaum, renowned for her eloquence and clarity of moral vision, shows how sexual abuse and harassment derive from using people as things to one's own benefit?like other forms of exploitation, they are rooted in the ugly emotion of pride. She exposes three "Citadels of Pride" and the men who hoard power at the apex of each. In the judiciary, the arts, and sports, Nussbaum analyzes how pride perpetuates systemic sexual abuse, narcissism, and toxic masculinity. The courage of many has brought about some reforms, but justice is still elusive?warped sometimes by money, power, or inertia; sometimes by a collective desire for revenge. By analyzing the effects of law and public policy on our ever-evolving definitions of sexual violence, Nussbaum clarifies how gaps in U.S. law allow this violence to proliferate; why criminal laws dealing with sexual assault and Title VII, the federal law that is the basis for sexual harassment doctrine, need to be complemented by an understanding of the distorted emotions that breed abuse; and why anger and vengeance rarely achieve lasting change. Citadels of Pride offers a damning indictment of the culture of male power that insulates high-profile abusers from accountability. Yet Nussbaum offers a hopeful way forward, envisioning a future in which, as survivors mobilize to tell their stories and institutions pursue fair and nuanced reform, we might fully recognize the equal dignity of all people.

Grace & Steel: Dorothy, Barbara, Laura, and the Women of the Bush Dynasty Audiobook

Grace & Steel: Dorothy, Barbara, Laura, and the Women of the Bush Dynasty

Author: J. Randy Taraborrelli Narrator: Eliza Foss Release Date: March 2021

From New York Times bestselling celebrity biographer J. Randy Taraborrelli comes Grace & Steel, the epic, hidden history of the exceptional women behind the greatest political dynasty of all time—the Bush family. Bestselling author J. Randy Taraborrelli reveals the unsung heroines of the inimitable Bush family dynasty: not only First Ladies Barbara and Laura, but other colorful women whose stories have been left out of history for far too long, including Barbara’s mother-in-law, the formidable Dorothy Bush; the enigmatic Columba and the controversial Sharon; and Laura’s twins, Jenna and Barbara. No matter the challenges related to power and politics, the women of the Bush dynasty always fought for equality in their marriages as they raised their children to be true to American values. In doing so, they inspired everyday Americans to do the same. Or, as Barbara Bush put it, “The future of this nation does not depend on what happens in the White House, but what happens in your house.” Details from the book include: —The tragedy Barbara faced in burying her three-year-old daughter, Robin, and her struggle with depression over the decades that followed. —The tragic night a teenage Laura Bush accidentally killed a good friend—a story she did not discuss publicly for decades. —The revelation of the affair that almost doomed George HW's hopes for the presidency. —The truth behind the fraught relationship between Nancy Reagan and Barbara Bush that culminated in an angry phone call during which Barbara told her she would never speak to her again—and she didn't. A Macmillan Audio production from St. Martin's Press '...a unique and colorful look at one of America’s most powerful political families.” -- Publishers Weekly “Where Taraborrelli excels is in excavating the personal histories of the three women and how they were forever shadowed by painful episodes in their lives. [The Bush women] created a singular, admirable legacy, and this book portrays them as genuine, struggling human beings.” -- Washington Post

Big Dirty Money: The Shocking Injustice and Unseen Cost of White Collar Crime Audiobook

Big Dirty Money: The Shocking Injustice and Unseen Cost of White Collar Crime

Author: Jennifer Taub Narrator: Eliza Foss Release Date: September 2020

How ordinary Americans suffer when the rich and powerful break the law to get richer and more powerful--and how we can stop it. There is an elite crime spree happening in America, and the privileged perps are getting away with it. Selling loose cigarettes on a city sidewalk can lead to a choke-hold arrest, and death, if you are not among the top 1%. But if you're rich and commit mail, wire, or bank fraud, embezzle pension funds, lie in court, obstruct justice, bribe a public official, launder money, or cheat on your taxes, you're likely to get off scot-free (or even win an election). When caught and convicted, such as for bribing their kids' way into college, high-class criminals make brief stops in minimum security 'Club Fed' camps. Operate the scam from the executive suite of a giant corporation, and you can prosper with impunity. Consider Wells Fargo & Co. Pressured by management, employees at the bank opened more than three million bank and credit card accounts without customer consent, and charged late fees and penalties to account holders. When CEO John Stumpf resigned in 'shame,' the board of directors granted him a $134 million golden parachute. This is not victimless crime. Big Dirty Money details the scandalously common and concrete ways that ordinary Americans suffer when the well-heeled use white collar crime to gain and sustain wealth, social status, and political influence. Profiteers caused the mortgage meltdown and the prescription opioid crisis, they've evaded taxes and deprived communities of public funds for education, public health, and infrastructure. Taub goes beyond the headlines (of which there is no shortage) to track how we got here (essentially a post-Enron failure of prosecutorial muscle, the growth of 'too big to jail' syndrome, and a developing implicit immunity of the upper class) and pose solutions that can help catch and convict offenders.

Unleashed: The Unapologetic Leader's Guide to Empowering Everyone Around You Audiobook

Unleashed: The Unapologetic Leader's Guide to Empowering Everyone Around You

Author: Anne Morriss, Frances Frei Narrator: Eliza Foss Release Date: June 2020

The Power of Empowering Others Leadership isn't easy. It takes grit, courage, and vision, among other things, that can be hard to come by on your toughest days. When leaders and aspiring leaders seek out advice, they're often told to try harder. Dig deeper. Look in the mirror and own your natural-born strengths and fix any real or perceived career-limiting deficiencies. Frances Frei and Anne Morriss offer a different worldview. They argue that this popular leadership advice glosses over the most important thing you do as a leader: build others up. Leadership isn't about you. It's about how effective you are at empowering other peopleand making sure this impact endures even in your absence. As Frei and Morriss show through inspiring stories from ancient Rome to present-day Silicon Valley, the origins of great leadership are found, paradoxically, not in worrying about your own status and advancement, but in the unrelenting focus on other people's potential. Unleashed provides radical advice for the practice of leadership today. Showing how the boldest, most effective leaders use a special combination of trust, love, and belonging to create an environment in which other people can excel, Frei and Morriss offer practical, battle-tested toolsbased on their work with companies such as Uber, Riot Games, WeWork, and othersalong with interviews and stories from their own personal experience, to make these ideas come alive. This book is your indispensable guide for unleashing greatness in other people...and, ultimately, in yourself.

Uncommon Service: How to Win by Putting Customers at the Core of Your Business Audiobook

Uncommon Service: How to Win by Putting Customers at the Core of Your Business

Author: Anne Morriss, Frances Frei Narrator: Eliza Foss Release Date: June 2020

Are you meeting your customers demand for great serviceand saving money at the same time? If not, youre at a serious disadvantagemissing out on building a sustainable business thats profitable, scalable, and capable of delivering excellence every day. In Uncommon Service, Harvard Business School professor Frances Frei and coauthor Anne Morriss bring a provocative new argument to the table: that companies must dare to be bad in order to be great, choosing strategic ways to underperform while fueling a winning service advantage. According to the authors, uncommon service is created by specific design choices made in the very blueprint of a business model. And its not about making a customer happy; instead, its about creating an organization where all employeesnot just star performersprovide excellent service as a matter of routine. Outstanding service organizations create offerings, funding strategies, systems, and cultures that set their people up to excel casually. Introducing a decidedly fresh view of service, the authors present an organizational design model built on tough choices you must make about four dimensions of your business: Your service offering: How do customers define excellence in your offering? Your service funding mechanism: How will you get paid for delivering excellence? Your employee management system: How will you prepare your employees to deliver excellence every day? Your customer management system: How will you get your customers to behave in ways that improve their service experiencewithout disrupting anyone elses? Create an organizational culture that reinforces smart decisions around these four dimensions and youll achieve a service advantage that rivals cant hope to copy. Frei and Morriss illustrate the power of this approach with examples of winning companies from a wide array of industriesincluding financial services, commercial aviation, health care, and retail. Practical and engaging, Uncommon Service makes a powerful case for a new and systematic approach to customer service as a pathway to unprecedented productivity and profitability
