Confessions of a Fat Cosmo Girl: How I Lost 122 Pounds & Kept it Off & How You Can Too Audiobook

Confessions of a Fat Cosmo Girl: How I Lost 122 Pounds & Kept it Off & How You Can Too

Author: Hazel Dixon-Cooper Narrator: Jo Anna Perrin Release Date: February 2021

You are not a failure. And you are not alone. You are being scammed by a system that promises quick fixes that fix nothing and sells you money-sucking programs that do nothing but fuel overeating. At each meal, 93 million overweight American adults and 14 million overweight children and adolescents risk their lives. More than 300,000 die unnecessarily every year from obesity-related diseases. Hazel Dixon-Cooper was a size twenty-two woman in a size two world until she dumped the weight-loss industry, discovered how food companies lie, and learned that doctors rarely know more about nutrition than we do. Confessions of a Fat Cosmo Girl examines the most popular weight-loss programs and reveals the truth about why they fail; confronts the medical profession's solution of slice-and-dice bariatric surgery; and debunks the deceptive benefits of fad diets and over-the-counter weight-loss products. The book also explores sugar addiction and how it contributes to every major life-threatening disease; shows you how to clear your life of toxic food, toxic people, and your own toxic beliefs; proves the life-saving benefits of moving to a plant-based diet; and offers a twenty-one-day challenge that will change your life.

Odin: Ecstasy, Runes, & Norse Magic

Author: Diana L. Paxson Narrator: Jo Anna Perrin Release Date: November 2020

Odin is arguably one of the most enigmatic and complex characters in Norse mythology. Revered since the Viking Age, Odin has been called the greatest of the gods-the god of words and wisdom, runes and magic, a transformer of consciousness, and a trickster who teaches truth. He is both war god and poetry god, and he is the Lord of Ravens, the All-Father, and the rune master.Odin: Ecstasy, Runes, and Norse Magic is the first book on Odin that is both historically sourced and accessible to a general audience. It explores Odin's origins, his appearances in sagas, old magic spells, and the Poetic Edda, and his influence on modern media, such as Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Each chapter features suggestions for rituals, exercises, and music so that listeners can comprehend and become closer to this complicated god.Author Diana Paxson draws on both scholarship and experience to provide context, resources, and guidance for those who are drawn to work with the Master of Ecstasy today.

Beyond Dealmaking: Five Steps to Negotiating Profitable Relationships Audiobook

Beyond Dealmaking: Five Steps to Negotiating Profitable Relationships

Author: Melanie Billings-Yun Narrator: Jo Anna Perrin Release Date: July 2020

Getting to yes is not the same as getting results. The business landscape of the 21st century has fundamentally changed. As our choice of suppliers, markets, employers, and partners has proliferated, businesses can no longer stay on top by negotiating short-term victories. Nor can any organization hope to navigate this complex economy by pursuing an endless cycle of zero-sum transactions. The key to winning unbeatable, long-term results is to negotiate solid long-term relationships. Until now, even the most enlightened negotiation books have focused on the signed agreement as their ultimate goal. But yes is often the easiest place to get. The other party will say yes to be polite or to make you go away when they feel cornered by forceful analytical arguments. The difficulty is in getting those same people to carry out their promise, fully, willingly and consistently. In short, unless you have built a mutually satisfying relationship you may never move beyond yes. Traditionally, negotiation has been approached as an isolated activity, separate from the business relationship or even from implementation. However, businesses that focus only on getting the deal often find their victory doesnt translate into profits. In two decades as an international negotiator and mediator, Melanie Billings-Yun, Ph.D. has seen hundreds of disputes arise and deals collapse because the negotiation process left a bitter taste in one partys mouth, because one side felt forced or tricked into unfair terms, or because those terms were too rigid to cope with the changes that inevitably occur. From that extensive experience she developed a model of relationship negotiation that has already won thousands of adherents around the world. The GRASP method has five clear steps: Understand the Goals of all parties, beyond the immediate deal. Develop Routes to maximize mutual benefit and promote synergy among the parties. Build openness, trust and common understanding through valid Arguments. Benchmark Substitutes to keep relationships from growing stale or one-sided. Increase your Persuasion through empathetic communication and genuine care. Through narrative lessons and stories, readers will learn how fairness, honesty, empathy, flexibility and mutual problem-solving will take them out of the punishing transactional grind and enable them to achieve sustainable success. By following the simple but powerful five-step GRASP negotiation process and drawing on the lessons at the end of each chapter, readers will find that negotiation becomes positive, exciting and rewarding instead of painful and punishing. Most important, they will see how they personally can profit from the central lesson of the 20th century: the greatest victories come not through fighting battles, but through building alliances.

Teaching How to Learn in a What-to-Learn Culture

Author: Kathleen R. Hopkins Narrator: Jo Anna Perrin Release Date: July 2020

Although there are ample resources on how to teach reading, math, science, or other types of academic content,there is comparatively little guidance for teachers on how students learn and why.

Joan Crawford: The Last Word: Fred Lawrence Guiles Hollywood Collection Audiobook

Joan Crawford: The Last Word: Fred Lawrence Guiles Hollywood Collection

Author: Fred Lawrence Guiles Narrator: Jo Anna Perrin Release Date: May 2020

For most of her adult life, Joan Crawford was a star who dedicated herself entirely to her career. But since her death, her luster has been tarnished. Here, at last, is a biography that sets the record straight. In her heyday, Joan Crawford was probably the most imitated woman in the world. Magazine covers featured her face, and high-school and college girls copied her makeup and clothing. Born Lucille Fay LeSueur in Kansas City, she spent her childhood on the edge of poverty. But an iron will developed in adolescence drove her to New York City and eventual work in a chorus line. Spotted by a Hollywood talent scout, she was soon on her way to the film capital. Four times married (to actors Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Franchot Tone, and Philip Terry and Pepsi-Cola executive Alfred Steele) and driven by powerful sexuality, Joan Crawford lived her life on the razor's edge. Yet she was a woman of great generosity who cared deeply for her four adopted children, although her ideas about discipline were colored by her own harsh upbringing. Her professional career spanned more than forty years and included such classics as Grand Hotel, Mildred Pierce, and Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? Her remarkable progression from silent films to talkies to television exemplified her ability to adapt, chameleon-like, to the ever-changing demands of the industry that in many senses invented her. A supplemental PDF is included with this audiobook.

You Talkin' To Me?: The Unruly History of New York English Audiobook

You Talkin' To Me?: The Unruly History of New York English

Author: E.J. White Narrator: Jo Anna Perrin Release Date: May 2020

From paddy wagon to rush hour, New York City has given us a number of our popular words and phrases, along the way fashioning a recognizable dialect all its own. Often imitated and just as often ridiculed, New York English has its own identity, imbued with the rich cultural history of (as New Yorkers tell it) the greatest city in the world. How did this unique language community develop, and how has it shaped the city as we know it today? In You Talkin' to Me?, E. J. White explores the hidden history of English in New York City-a history that encompasses social class, immigration, culture, economics, and, of course, real estate. She tells entertaining stories of New York's most famous characters, streets, and cultural institutions, from Broadway to the newspaper office to the department store, illuminating a new dimension of the city's landscape. Full of little-known facts-C-3PO was originally written to have a New York accent; West Side Story was originally going to be East Side Story, about Jewish and Christian New Yorkers; and 'confidence man' started in reference to a specific New York City criminal-the book will delight lovers of language and history alike.

Kingdomtide Audiobook

Kingdomtide

Author: Rye Curtis Narrator: Jo Anna Perrin, Maggie-Meg Reed Release Date: January 2020

The lives of two women-the sole survivor of an airplane crash and the troubled park ranger who leads the rescue mission to find her -intersect in a gripping debut novel of hope and resilience, second thoughts and second chances I no longer pass judgment on any man nor woman. People are people, and I do not believe there is much more to be said on the matter. Twenty years ago I might have been of a different mind about that, but I was a different Cloris Waldrip back then. I might have gone on being that same Cloris Waldrip, the one I had been for seventy-two years, had I not fallen out of the sky in that little airplane on Sunday, August 31, 1986. It does amaze that a woman can reach the tail end of her life and find that she hardly knows herself at all. When seventy-two-year-old Cloris Waldrip finds herself lost and alone in the unforgiving wilderness of the Montana mountains, with only a bible, a sturdy pair of boots, and a couple of candies to keep her alive, it seems her chances of ever getting home to Texas are slim. Debra Lewis, a park ranger, who is drinking her way out of the aftermath of a messy divorce is the only one who believes the old lady may still be alive. Galvanized by her newfound mission to find her, Lewis leads a motley group of rescuers to follow the trail of clues that Cloris has left behind. But as days stretch into weeks, and Cloris's situation grows ever more precarious, help arrives from the unlikeliest of places, causing her to question all the certainties on which she has built her life. Suspenseful, wry and gorgeously written Kingdomtide is the inspiring account of two unforgettable characters, whose heroism reminds us that survival is only the beginning. 'Suspenseful from start to finish ... First novels are often praised for an author's potential, but Kingdomtide displays an exceptional talent fully realized' Ron Rash, New York Times bestselling author of Serena
