Aerial Warfare: A Very Short Introduction Audiobook

Aerial Warfare: A Very Short Introduction

Author: Frank Ledwidge Narrator: Jonathan Yen Release Date: June 2020

Aerial warfare has dominated war-making for over 100 years, and despite regular announcements of its demise, it shows no sign of becoming obsolete. In this Very Short Introduction Frank Ledwidge offers a sweeping look at the history of aerial warfare, introducing the major battles, crises, and controversies where air power has taken center stage, and the changes in technology and air power capabilities over time. Highlighting the role played by air power in the First and Second World Wars, he also sheds light on the lesser-known theaters where the roles of air forces have been clearly decisive in conflicts, in Africa, South America, and Asia. Along the way, Ledwidge asks key questions about the roles air power can deliver, and whether it is conceptually different from other forms of combat. Considering whether bombing has ever been truly effective, he discusses whether wars can be won from the air, and concludes by analyzing whether there is a future for manned air power, or if it is inevitable that drones will dominate 21st century war in the air.

Wrestling with Angels Audiobook

Wrestling with Angels

Author: John Hanrahan Narrator: Jonathan Yen Release Date: May 2020

In 1984, John Hanrahan was featured in Interview magazine's iconic Olympic Issue as one of America's top athletes vying for a spot on the US Olympic Team. He had come within a point of defeating the mighty Soviet world medalist and had defeated other prominent world competitors. He was within reach of a lifetime dream, but then abandoned the Final Trials. The coach searched frantically for him at LaGuardia airport. He was nowhere to be found. He hadn't exactly fallen off the face of the earth; his face was appearing in worldwide ad campaigns as a top fashion model-but he'd become a full-blown drug addict, unable to face his competition, and unwilling to confront the truth of his situation. Then, in 1985, Hanrahan died from a drug overdose. He went to another place while a doctor worked frantically to revive him. He was given another chance at life, and he feels he came back for a reason . . . He returned wanting to shout his story from the rooftops, but was unable to fully share his experiences to help others. He was crippled by the stigma of being judged as a drug addict, and it wasn't until he nearly lost his own son to the ravages of addiction that he broke through and gained the strength and courage to tell his story.

Your Blood Never Lies: How to Read a Blood Test For A Longer, Healthier Life Audiobook

Your Blood Never Lies: How to Read a Blood Test For A Longer, Healthier Life

Author: James B. Lavalle Narrator: Jonathan Yen Release Date: May 2020

A standard blood test indicates how well the kidneys and liver are functioning, the potential for heart disease, and a host of other vital health markers. Unfortunately, most of us cannot decipher these results ourselves, nor can we even formulate the right questions to ask about them-or we couldn't until now. In Your Blood Never Lies, bestselling author James LaValle clears up the mystery surrounding blood test results. In simple language, he explains all of the information found on these forms, making it understandable and accessible. This means that you can look at the results yourself and know the significance of each marker. Dr. LaValle even recommends the most effective conventional and complementary treatments for dealing with any problematic findings. Rounding out the book are the names of test markers that should be requested for a more complete physical picture. A blood test can reveal so much about your body, but only if you can interpret the results. Your Blood Never Lies provides the up-to-date information you need to take control of your health.

Polarization: What Everyone Needs to Know Audiobook

Polarization: What Everyone Needs to Know

Author: Nolan Mccarty Narrator: Jonathan Yen Release Date: April 2020

The 2016 election of Donald J. Trump invoked a time for reflection about the state of American politics and its deep ideological, cultural, racial, regional, and economic divisions. But one aspect that the contemporary discussions often miss is that these fissures have been opening over several decades and are deeply rooted in the structure of American politics and society. In Polarization: What Everyone Needs to Know Nolan McCarty takes readers through what scholars know and don't know about the origins, development, and implications of our rising political conflicts, delving into social, economic, and geographic determinants of polarization in the United States. While the current political climate seems to suggest that extreme views are becoming more popular, McCarty also argues that, contrary to popular belief, the 2016 election was a natural outgrowth of forty years of polarized politics, rather than a significant break with the past. A concise overview of a complex and crucial topic in US politics, this book is for anyone wanting to understand how to repair the cracks in our system.

Losing Jon: A Teen's Tragic Death, a Police Cover-Up, a Community's Fight for Justice Audiobook

Losing Jon: A Teen's Tragic Death, a Police Cover-Up, a Community's Fight for Justice

Author: David Parrish Narrator: Jonathan Yen Release Date: April 2020

A Chilling True Story of Injustice David Parrish was in disbelief when he learned that nineteen-year-old Jon Bowie's body had been found hanged from a backstop at the local high school's baseball field and the death declared a suicide. David had known Jon and his twin brother since they were boys. He had coached them on the baseball field and welcomed them into his home for sleepovers with his own sons. However, when David learned how Jon's body was found, he felt compelled to find the facts behind this incomprehensible tragedy. Soon, David would learn of a brutal incident at a local motel where Jon and his brother had been severely beaten by police officers, the charges filed against those officers, and the months of harassment and intimidation Jon and his brother endured. Few in the utopian community of Columbia, Maryland, believed Jon could commit such a final act. Like many others, David wondered how a fateful night of teens blowing off steam could lead to such a tragic end. As law enforcement failed to find answers and seemed intent on preventing the truth from surfacing, David uncovered a system of cover-ups that could only lead to one conclusion-Jon's death was an act of murder.
