Comebacks: Powerful Lessons from Leaders Who Endured Setbacks and Recaptured Success on Their Terms Audiobook

Comebacks: Powerful Lessons from Leaders Who Endured Setbacks and Recaptured Success on Their Terms

Author: Andrea Redmond, Patricia Crisafulli Narrator: Jane Jacobs Release Date: July 2020

In turbulent economic times, when careers are derailed by layoffs and leaders are forced to rewrite their professional plans, readers are hungry for introspection that can enlighten as well as uplift. Comebacks features an all-star cast of business leaders who suffered a public fall from the pinnacle of their careers, often in the midst of extreme media scrutiny. Based on revealing interviews, the ten profiles in the book provide a behind-the-headline glimpse into the lives of seasoned leaders, showing how they drew upon resources, both internal and external, to navigate their way forward and to learn leadership and life lessons that allowed them to excel in future ventures. Together, the ten profiles reveal that all leaders face adversity, but true leaders turn adversity into success--and redefine success through their leadership. High-profile leaders featured include: Jamie Dimon, renowned CEO of JPMorgan Chase, who at the peak of his career with Citigroup was fired as president Former HP Chair Patricia Dunn who, forced to resign after being indicted for corporate espionage charges and while battling cancer, was exonerated from any wrongdoing and now is active in philanthropic work. Former Baxter International CEO Harry Kraemer who, after 22 years at the pharmaceutical firm, had to step down due to poor corporate earnings, is now a highly regarded business professor at Northwestern University Former Ford Motor Company CEO Jacques Nasser who, forced to resign from the automaker after devoting years to the company, has recently landed the coveted position of Chairman of Chairman of BHP Billiton, the worlds largest natural resources company. Former founder and CEO of JetBlue David Neeleman who, asked to step down after a series of weather-related delays in 2007 caused an uproar among passengers and consumers, has moved on to found a new airline in Brazil. Honest and soul-searching, the stories in Comebacks will resonate with readers who are experiencing their own reversal, are disillusioned by career choices, or are exploring other paths aligned with their values and priorities.

Anything That Moves: Renegade Chefs, Fearless Eaters, and the Making of a New American Food Culture Audiobook

Anything That Moves: Renegade Chefs, Fearless Eaters, and the Making of a New American Food Culture

Author: Dana Goodyear Narrator: Jane Jacobs Release Date: November 2013

New Yorker writer Dana Goodyear combines the style of Mary Roach with the on-the-ground food savvy of Anthony Bourdain in a rollicking narrative look at the shocking extremes of the contemporary American food world. A new American cuisine is forming. Animals never before considered or long since forgotten are emerging as delicacies. Parts that used to be for scrap are centerpieces. Ash and hay are fashionable ingredients, and you pay handsomely to breathe flavored air. Going out to a nice dinner now often precipitates a confrontation with a fundamental question: Is that food? Anything That Moves, a behind-the-scenes look at foodie culture, is simultaneously a humorous adventure and a serious attempt to understand the implications of the way we eat. This is a universe populated by insect-eaters and blood drinkers, avant-garde chefs who make food out of roadside leaves and wood, and others who serve endangered species, pets, and Schedule I drugs—a cast of characters, in other words, who flirt with danger, taboo, and disgust in pursuit of the sublime. Behind them is an intricate network of scavengers, dealers, and pitchmen responsible for introducing rare and exotic ingredients into the marketplace and, ultimately, bringing them to the family table. Highly entertaining and deeply revelatory, Anything That Moves explores the raucous, strange, fascinatingly complex world of contemporary American food culture, and the places where the extreme is bleeding into the mainstream.

Weekends with Daisy Audiobook

Weekends with Daisy

Author: Sharon Kahn Lutterell Narrator: Jane Jacobs Release Date: September 2013

When Sharron Luttrell, a journalist still deeply mourning the loss of her family dog, found out about a weekend puppy raiser program for a service dog organization, she knew it was just she needed to help her move on. It seemed ideal; pick up a puppy on Friday, return it on Sunday night, get a new puppy each year. No strings attached. Well, it turns out that there were strings – and they tugged at her every Sunday evening when she had to return “her dog” to prison. This memoir chronicles Sharron’s year co-parenting Daisy, a sweet lab puppy, with Ryan, a convicted felon who by the time they met had already spent more than half of his life behind bars for a crime he’d committed as a sixteen-year-old. The book traces Daisy’s evolution from puppy to service dog, and how through the process of training and caring for her, Sharron tests the limits of her own strength, compassion, and capacity for love.

You Are Why You Eat: Change Your Food Attitude, Change Your Life Audiobook

You Are Why You Eat: Change Your Food Attitude, Change Your Life

Author: Dr. Ramani Durvasula Narrator: Jane Jacobs Release Date: March 2013

An intelligent, timely, and prescriptive book that shows how people's attitude toward food often reflects their attitude toward other areas in their life-jobs, relationships, money-and how they can let go of trying to please others and satisfy their true appetites. What if you could stop eating, stop working at a bad job, stop a bad relationship-stop anything when you have had enough? Understanding WHY you eat can lead to real and lasting change-both in weight loss and all other areas of life. In You Are WHY You Eat, food becomes a digestible metaphor. Most of us are unable to walk away-from a plate of food or a bad situation. But instead of staying and trying to please others all the time, what would happen if you listened to your inner voice? Dr. Ramani Durvasula reveals that how you eat and live often ties directly into the desire to please your stakeholders-parents, partners, friends, and society. Understanding WHY you eat will lead to real change and let you take back your life. In You Are WHY You Eat, Dr. Ramani takes a fresh, brave, and edgy approach to self-help. Through real-life anecdotes and thought-provoking exercises, she gives you the tools you need to live on your terms. This powerful book will help you trust your gut, while making that gut smaller at the same time. And it will teach you to live a life that is bolder, more authentic, and less riddled with regret. This book is about learning how to quit, when to quit, when to walk away, and how to acknowledge when you are full. It's about turning off the voices of the world and listening to the one that matters most: your own.
