Radical Remission Audiobook

Radical Remission

Author: Kelly A. Turned, Ph.D, Kelly A. Turner Ph.D Narrator: Joyce Bean Release Date: July 2014

Kelly Turner, Ph.D., a researcher and psychotherapist who specializes in integrative oncology, gives the listener the results of her research on over a thousand cases of Radical Remission—people who have defied a serious or even terminal cancer diagnosis with a complete reversal of the disease. The results of this study, which focused on seventy-five factors, include astounding insights of the nine key factors that Dr. Turner found among nearly every Radical Remission survivor she has studied and an explanation of how the listener can put these practices to work in his or her own life. Every chapter of Radical Remission includes dramatic stories of survivors’ journeys back to wellness. The realization that the possibilities for healing are more abundant than we had previously known gives people concrete ways to defy the overwhelming prognosis of terminal cancer. This is an audiobook for those who are in the midst of receiving conventional cancer treatment, who are looking for other options because that treatment has done all that it can, or who seemingly have no options left but still feel that the future holds the possibility of hope. Kelly Turner’s Radical Remission shows that it is possible to triumph over cancer, even in situations that seem hopeless. Encompassing diet, stress, emotions, spirituality, and other factors that profoundly affect our health and well-being, Turner’s discussion of how our choices can cause the seemingly miraculous to happen will open your eyes to what is possible when it comes to lasting healing.

This Is Not The Story You Think It Is... Audiobook

This Is Not The Story You Think It Is...

Author: Laura Munson Narrator: Joyce Bean Release Date: January 2010

"I don't love you anymore. I'm not sure I ever did." His words came at me like a speeding fist, like a sucker punch, yet somehow in that moment I was able to duck. And once I recovered and composed myself, I managed to say, "I don't buy it." Because I didn't. He drew back in surprise. Apparently he'd expected me to burst into tears, to rage at him, to threaten him with a custody battle. Or beg him to change his mind. . . . I really wanted to fight. To rage. To cry. But I didn't. Instead, a shroud of calm enveloped me, and I repeated those words: "I don't buy it." You see, I'd recently committed to a non-negotiable understanding with myself. I'd committed to "The End of Suffering." I'd . . . decided to take responsibility for my own happiness. And I mean all of it. When Laura Munson's essay appeared in the "Modern Love" column of The New York Times, it created a firestorm. Readers sent it to their friends, therapists gave it to their patients, pastors read it to their congregations. People everywhere were struck by Munson's wisdom. But how was she able to implement this strategy? How was she able to commit herself to an "End of Suffering" at such a critical time? At forty years old, certain parts of Munson's life were going exactly as planned-she had two wonderful children, a husband she adored, a cherished home. Yet she and her husband, the once golden couple, weren't looking so golden anymore. While she had come to peace with her life, her husband had not. Poignant, wise, and often exceedingly funny, This Is Not The Story You Think It Is... recounts Munson's journey. Shaken to her core after the death of her beloved father, and having sought guidance and solace in stacks of books and hours of therapy, she finally realized that she had to stop basing her happiness on things outside her control. And once she had this key piece of wisdom, she realized she could withstand almost anything. Written as she experiences her crisis, moment by moment, sometimes breath by breath, Munson's book is raw and searingly honest in the very best sense. She takes readers by the hand as they embark, together, on a journey whose outcome is not known. Filled with wisdom, truth, and heart-and a great tomato sauce recipe-This Is Not The Story You Think It Is... is ultimately about how to be responsible for your own well-being. It is a candid, powerful, unforgettable memoir.

Arm Candy Audiobook

Arm Candy

Author: Jill Kargman Narrator: Joyce Bean Release Date: May 2010

For two decades, thirty-nine-year-old Eden Clyde has been enjoying wealth and glamour as the muse and lover of Otto Clyde, the ultrafamous, and much older, king of the art world. Genetically, she hit the lottery, but Eden is unlucky in love: Eighteen years ago she put aside her dream of true love and marriage, and has turned a blind eye to Otto's philandering in exchange for a life without want. In her younger days this seemed like a fair bargain, but as forty looms overhead - and as the beauty for which she's known begins to fade - she feels the cost of the arrangement finally taking its toll on her happiness. Eden leaves their cozy downtown loft for New York's frostier Upper East Side, where she begins to search for the girl and the life she left so many years ago. With encouragement from a raucous but lovable group of girlfriends, Eden soon finds herself embroiled in a heated love affair with Gotham's most eligible bachelor: the much younger Chase Lydon. But just as their relationship is getting serious, an old flame resurfaces. Does Eden want the life she's living - and loving - right now, or the love she left behind? On the brink of her fortieth birthday, it's time for Eden to follow her heart, but this time not even Eden is sure where that will lead. . . . Poignant and laugh-out-loud funny, and written with heart and humor, Arm Candy shows that although sometimes forty may feel like the ultimate f word, it's never too late to find true love.

There’s Ginny, the freckle-faced Kansas cake baker whose online writing is about to lead her out of a broken marriage and into a world of sensual delights.

Poison Flower: A Jane Whitefield Novel

Author: Thomas Perry Narrator: Joyce Bean Release Date: March 2012

Poison Flower, the seventh novel in Thomas Perry's celebrated Jane Whitefield series, opens as Jane spirits James Shelby, a man unjustly convicted of his wife's murder, out of the heavily guarded criminal court building in downtown Los Angeles. But the price of Shelby's freedom is high. Within minutes, men posing as police officers kidnap Jane and, when she tries to escape, shoot her. Jane's captors are employees of the man who really killed Shelby's wife. He believes he won't be safe until Shelby is dead, and his men will do anything to force Jane to reveal Shelby's hiding place. But Jane endures their torment and is willing to die rather than betray Shelby. Jane manages to escape but she is alone, wounded, thousands of miles from home with no money and no identification, hunted by the police as well as her captors. She must rejoin Shelby, reach his sister before the hunters do, and get them both to safety. In this unrelenting, breathtaking cross-country battle, Jane survives by relying on the traditions of her Seneca ancestors. When at last Jane turns to fight, her enemies face a cunning and ferocious warrior who has one weapon that they don't.

The Well-Dressed Ape: A Natural History of Myself Audiobook

The Well-Dressed Ape: A Natural History of Myself

Author: Hannah Holmes Narrator: Joyce Bean Release Date: June 2009

THE WELL-DRESSED APE, aka Homo sapiens, is a strange mammal. It thinks of itself as complex, intelligent, and in every way superior to other animals - but is it, really? With wit, humility, and penetrating insight, science journalist Hannah Holmes casts the inquisitive eye of a trained researcher and reporter on...herself. And not just on herself, but on our whole species - what Shakespeare called "the paragon of animals." In this surprising, humorous, and edifying audio, Holmes explores how the human animal fits into the natural world, even as we humans change that world in both constructive and destructive ways. Comparing and contrasting the biology and behavior of humans with that of other creatures, Holmes demonstrates our position as an animal among other animals, a product of - and subject to - the same evolutionary processes. And not only are we animals - we are, in some important ways (such as our senses of smell and of vision), pitiably inferior ones. That such an animal came to exist at all is unlikely. That we have survived and prospered is extraordinary. At the same time, Holmes reveals the ways in which Homo sapiens stands apart from other animals. Despite the vast common ground we share with our fellow creatures, there are significant areas in which we are unique - our capacity for self-reflective thought and our talent for changing ourselves in response to natural challenges. Deftly mixing personal stories and observations with the latest scientific theories and research results, Hannah Holmes has fashioned an engaging and informative field guide to that oddest and yet most fascinating of primates: ourselves.
