Author: James K. Harter, PH.D., Ph.D. James K. Harter, Rodd Wagner Narrator: John McLain Release Date: December 2016

More than a decade ago, Gallup combed through its database of more than 1 million employee and manager interviews to identify the 12 elements most important for sustaining high performance. These were identified in the 1999 bestseller First, Break All the Rules. The Gallup study now includes 9 million employee and manager interviews spanning 114 countries and conducted in 41 languages. The authors weave together the latest Gallup insights with recent discoveries in the fields of psychology, physiology, game theory, neuroscience, and management. Chapters in the book follow great managers as they harness employee engagement to turn around a failing call center, save a struggling restaurant, improve patient care in a hospital, maintain production through power outages, and face a host of other challenges in settings around the world. Written to be accessible to all managers and employees, 12 explains what every company needs to know about human nature on the job.

A Swollen Red Sun Audiobook

A Swollen Red Sun

Author: Matthew McBride Narrator: John McLain Release Date: June 2014

God, drugs, corruption, and morality come together in this gripping tale of desperation. In Gasconade County, Missouri—once called the meth capital of the world—Deputy Sheriff Dale Banks discovers $52,000 hidden in the broken-down trailer that Jerry Dean Skaggs uses for cooking crystal. And he takes it. Banks knows what he did was wrong, but he did it for all the right reasons. At least, he thinks so. But for every wrong deed, there is a consequence. Jerry Dean can’t afford to lose that $52,000—he owes it to his partners and to a crooked cop. He also can’t afford to disappoint the crazed and fearsome Reverend Butch Pogue, who is expecting Jerry Dean to deliver the chemicals the reverend needs for his next batch of meth. To avoid the holy man’s wrath, Jerry Dean sets in motion a series of events that will threaten Banks’ family, his life, and everything he thinks he knows about the world. “A Swollen Red Sun, simply put, is an epic piece of modern crime fiction. But within that, McBride never loses his sense of powerful intimacy with the characters, their lives, their families, and their demons.”—Todd Robinson, author of The Hard Bounce

All Saints: The Surprising Story of How Refugees From Burma Brought Life to a Dying Church Audiobook

All Saints: The Surprising Story of How Refugees From Burma Brought Life to a Dying Church

Author: Jeanette Windle, Michael Spurlock Narrator: John McLain Release Date: August 2017

This nonfiction audio book will tell the story behind the upcoming film ALL SAINTS. The movie is inspired by the true story of salesman-turned-pastor Michael Spurlock (Corbett), the tiny church he was ordered to shut down, and a group of refugees from Southeast Asia. Together, they risk everything to plant seeds for a future that might just save them all. Michael's first assignment as their new pastor is to close down All Saints, a dilapidated country church with a dozen devoted members and a mortgage well beyond its means. But when the church hesitantly begins welcoming Karen refugees from Burma-former farmers scrambling for a fresh start in America-Michael feels called to an improbable new mission. Jeopardizing his family's future by ignoring his superiors, Michael must choose between completing what he was assigned to do-close the church and sell the property-or listening to a still, small voice challenging the people of All Saints to risk it all and provide much-needed hope to their new community. This nonfiction book will tell the true story that inspired the film while also diving deeper into the background of the Karen people, the church, and how a community of believers can coordinate their efforts to help those in need.

America the Strong: Conservative Ideas to Spark the Next Generation Audiobook

America the Strong: Conservative Ideas to Spark the Next Generation

Author: John T. E. Cribb, William J Bennett, William J. Bennett Narrator: John McLain Release Date: September 2015

What is F.L.I.N.T.? It’s what makes America strong. We live in a culture that often dismisses and ridicules conservative values. By the time liberal professors, the news media, and Hollywood get through with them, many young Americans are convinced “conservative” means extremist and intolerant. It’s a distortion that endangers America’s future. Bill Bennett and coauthor John Cribb explain what conservatism really means, using five fundamental principles summarized by the word FLINT: Free enterprise Limited government Individual liberty National defense Traditional values America the Strong shows the next generation how these principles have made the United States a great nation and why they are worth preserving. It answers more than one hundred questions, from “Do conservatives hate the government?” to “What’s wrong with having an open border?” to “Why can’t rich people pay all the taxes?” ***Please contact member services for additional documents***

Believers, Thinkers, and Founders: How We Came to be One Nation Under God Audiobook

Believers, Thinkers, and Founders: How We Came to be One Nation Under God

Author: Kevin Seamus Hasson Narrator: John McLain Release Date: April 2016

In Believers, Thinkers, and Founders: How We Came to Be One Nation Under God, Kevin Seamus Hasson - founder and president emeritus of the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty - offers a refreshing resolution to a familiar conundrum: If there is real religious freedom in America, how is it that our government keeps invoking God? He's everywhere - from our currency to the Pledge of Allegiance. Isn't that all entirely too religious? And just whose God are we talking about anyway? If we are intellectually honest, shouldn't we scrub all these references to God from our public life? Yet the Declaration of Independence says that God is the source of our rights. \u201cThe traditional position, writes Hasson, \u201cis that our fundamental human rights -including those secured by the First Amendment - are endowed to us by the Creator, and that it would be perilous to permit the government ever to repudiate that point. America has steadfastly repeated that for more than 200 years, throughout all branches and levels of government. To say that there is no Creator who endows us with rights, Hasson argues, \u201cis to do more than simply tinker with one of the most famous one-liners in history; it is to change the starting point of our whole explanation of who we are as Americans and, ultimately, why our government is a limited one in the first place. What to do? Hasson looks closely at the nation's founding and sees a solution in the classical distinction between faith and reason. The existence of God, he points out, can traditionally be known by reason alone, while who God is can only be seen by faith. By recognizing the distinction between the \u201cself-evident Creator referred to in the Declaration of Independence and God as revealed in our faith traditions, we can move past the culture wars that plague us. In short, Hasson argues that we can have a robust First Amendment without abandoning our natural rights. In Believers, Thinkers, and Founders, Hasson examines that idea while looking at a host of issues - including the Pledge of Allegiance, prayer at public events, and the Declaration of Independence - as he demonstrates how we can still be one nation under God.

Black Knight in Red Square

Author: Stuart M. Kaminsky Narrator: John McLain Release Date: May 2021

A Soviet cop stars in this novel of 'sweaty-palmed suspense . . . Equal parts likeable characters and believable dangers' (The Washington Post Book World). The Moscow Film Festival is in town, and the elite artists of the East and West have convened at the legendary Metropole Hotel to drink, gossip, and flirt. But the party is about to come crashing down. Four men-one American, one Japanese, and two Russians-will all be dead by morning, poisoned. To keep the killings under wraps, the Kremlin hands the investigation over to the famously discreet police investigator Porfiry Rostnikov. A hard-boiled cop with more than three decades' experience navigating the deadly jungle of the Soviet bureaucracy, Rostnikov is about to find himself both in the international spotlight and in the crosshairs of a terrorist, who is targeting foreigners to embarrass the Soviet state and will happily sacrifice any Russian who gets in the way. This Edgar Award-nominated follow-up to Death of a Dissident confirms Stuart Kaminsky's status as 'the Ed McBain of Mother Russia' (Kirkus Reviews).

Blood Aces: The Wild Ride of Benny Binion, the Texas Gangster Who Created Vegas Poker Audiobook

Blood Aces: The Wild Ride of Benny Binion, the Texas Gangster Who Created Vegas Poker

Author: Doug J. Swanson Narrator: John McLain Release Date: August 2014

The astonishing story of Benny Binion—a rip-roaring saga of murder, money, and the making of Las Vegas Benny Binion was many things: a cowboy, a pioneering casino owner, a gangster, a killer, and founder of the hugely successful World Series of Poker. Blood Aces tells the story of Binion’s crucial role in shaping modern Las Vegas. From a Texas backwater, Binion rose to prominence on a combination of vision, determination, and brutal expediency. His formula was simple: run a good business, cultivate the big boys, kill your enemies, and own the cops. Through a mix of cold-bloodedness, native intelligence, folksiness, and philanthropy, Binion became one of the most revered figures in the history of gambling, and his showmanship, shrewdness, and violence would come to dominate the Vegas scene. Veteran journalist Doug J. Swanson uses once-secret government documents and dogged reporting to show how Binion destroyed his rivals and outsmarted his adversaries—including J. Edgar Hoover. As fast paced as any thriller, Blood Aces tells a story that is unmatched in the annals of American criminal justice, a vital yet untold piece of this country’s history. “The big life and fast times of one of the most charismatic and dangerous good ol’ boys in America’s criminal history…An entertaining and provocative portrait of a man whose dichotomies were largely a product of the violent times in which he thrived.”—Kirkus Reviews

Bloody Sixteen: The USS Oriskany and Air Wing 16 during the Vietnam War Audiobook

Bloody Sixteen: The USS Oriskany and Air Wing 16 during the Vietnam War

Author: Peter Fey Narrator: John McLain Release Date: May 2018

Strategy and reality collide in Peter Fey's gripping history of aircraft carrier USS Oriskany's three deployments to Vietnam with Carrier Air Wing 16 (CVW-16). Its tours coincided with the most dangerous phases of Operation Rolling Thunder, the ill-fated bombing campaign against North Vietnam, and accounted for a quarter of all the naval aircraft lost during Rolling Thunder-the highest loss rate of any carrier air wing during Vietnam. The Johnson administration's policy of gradually applied force meant that Oriskany arrived on station just as previous restrictions were lifted and bombing raids increased. As a result CVW-16 pilots paid a heavy price as they ventured into areas previously designated "off limits" by Washington DC. Named after one of the bloodiest battles of the Revolutionary War, the Oriskany lived up to its name. After two years of suffering heavy losses, the ship caught fire-a devastating blow given the limited number of carriers deployed. With only three months allotted for repairs, Oriskany deployed a third and final time and ultimately lost more than half of its aircraft and more than a third of its pilots. The valor and battle accomplishments displayed by Oriskany's aviators are legendary, but the story of their service has been lost in the disastrous fray of the war itself.

Citizen Newt: The Making of a Reagan Conservative Audiobook

Citizen Newt: The Making of a Reagan Conservative

Author: Craig Shirley Narrator: John McLain Release Date: September 2017

In one way or another Newt Gingrich has been leading a revolution for most of his life. Citizen Newt is the definitive account of that struggle. Writing with the full cooperation of Speaker Gingrich and the players around him, New York Times bestselling author Craig Shirley captures the events, ideas, failures, and successes of Newton Leroy Gingrich-one of the most complex, influential, and durable political figures of our time. Returning to Gingrich's childhood in Pennsylvania and his formative years as a young history professor, Citizen Newt moves through Gingrich's first forays into politics and takes listeners behind the scenes of the congressman's crucial role in the Reagan Revolution, his battles with George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton, and his masterly orchestration of 1994's "Gingrich Revolution" and the Contract with America, which catapulted him to national prominence and forever changed congressional and national politics. Drawing upon untold stories from Gingrich and those who know him best-political allies and opponents, Washington insiders and political iconoclasts, Capitol Hill staffers and colleagues-Shirley has crafted a fascinating, humorous, humanizing, and insightful account of a true American original.

Colter's Journey

Author: J. A. Johnstone, William W. Johnstone Narrator: John McLain Release Date: June 2017

In this thrilling epic of the American West, New York Times bestselling authors William W. Johnstone and J. A. Johnstone capture the human side of the frontier experience in all its glory, grit, and grandeur-through the eyes of one remarkable teenage boy. Leaving their Pennsylvania home to forge a new life in the untamed Oregon Territory of 1845, the Colter family is ambushed by a kill-crazy gang of cutthroats on the Oregon Trail. Fifteen-year-old Tim Colter manages to escape and hide-only to return and find his parents butchered, his sisters Nancy and Margaret missing, and one last killer waiting for his return. Forced to fight for his life, the young Colter embarks on a perilous journey across a lawless frontier, hoping to save his sisters and salvage the dream they lived for. But first, Tim has to figure out how to survive. Luckily, he finds a new friend in Jed Reno, a grizzled one-eyed trapper who has lived in the Rocky Mountains since the 1820s-and who was attacked by the same gang that ambushed Tim's family. Together, the mountain man and the greenhorn set out after the marauders, blazing a trail of vengeance that leads them to one of the deadliest men in the territory. With danger at every turn, and death just a heartbeat away, Colter has no choice but to grow up fast-one bullet at a time.
