Primitive: Tapping the Primal Drive Powering the World's Most Successful People Audiobook

Primitive: Tapping the Primal Drive Powering the World's Most Successful People

Author: Marco Greenberg Narrator: Kevin Stillwell Release Date: April 2020

A provocative look at how to better understand your primal, ingrained strengths and chart your professional course accordingly, from an advisor and confidant to Fortune 500 CEOs, cutting edge entrepreneurs and other top business performers. After a thirty-year career working with some of the world's wealthiest people and most successful entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, Marco Greenberg discovered the common denominator in each person's success: they were all acting on what Greenberg defines as our 'primitive' instincts. While the term may be fraught-with associations of being crude and unsophisticated-in Primitive, Greenberg outlines this characteristic as something much more profound, positive and intrinsic to breakout success. It's the drive that leads us to obsess over our mission. It's the instinct that lets us ignore conventions and think up new solutions to old problems. It's the force of passion and dedication that could lead to innovation, if only we know how to harness it. By ROAMING as primitives do-and being Relentless-Oppositional-Agnostic-Messianic-Insecure-Nuts-Gallant-Primitive teaches anyone how to unleash all of these traits, many of them counterintuitive, to maximize results in work and in life.

Pearls of Wisdom: Little Pieces of Advice (That Go a Long Way) Audiobook

Pearls of Wisdom: Little Pieces of Advice (That Go a Long Way)

AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! In this 'sage, valuable volume' (Publishers Weekly), First Lady Barbara Bush shares the best of her advice to family, staff, and close friends. First Lady Barbara Bush was famous for handing out advice. From friends and family to heads of state and Supreme Court justices, and certainly to her staff, her advice ranged from what to wear, what to say or not say, and how to live your life. She especially loved visiting with students of all ages, from kindergartners to college graduates. When she turned 80, she owned up to all her advice-giving and explained it this way: After all, in 80 years of living, I have survived 6 children, 17 grandchildren, 6 wars, a book by Kitty Kelly, two presidents, two governors, big Election Day wins and big Election Day losses, and 61 years of marriage to a husband who keeps jumping out of perfectly good airplanes. So, it's just possible that along the way I've learned a thing or two. At the end of the day, she taught all of us some valuable lessons. As First Lady, she made a point of cuddling a baby with AIDS and hugging a young man who was HIV positive and whose family had rejected him, showing us by example the importance of compassion and the myth of fear. As a mother, she made sure we all knew that your children must come first, and one of the most important things you can do is to read to them. As a friend and mentor, she showed that you had to be true to yourself, and even at the end of her life, she taught us how to die with grace. Full of Barbara Bush's trademark wit and thoughtfulness, Pearls of Wisdom is a poignant reflection on life, love, family, and the world by one of America's most iconic -- and beloved -- public figures.

Nothing More Dangerous Audiobook

Nothing More Dangerous

Author: Allen Eskens Narrator: Kevin Stillwell Release Date: November 2019

Missouri native Allen Eskens' 'stunning small-town mystery' (New York Times Book Review) is 'a coming-of-age book to rival some of the best, such as Ordinary Grace.' (Library Journal, starred review) A LIBRARY JOURNAL Mystery Pick of the Month In a small Southern town where loyalty to family and to 'your people' carries the weight of a sacred oath, defying those unspoken rules can be a deadly proposition. After fifteen years of growing up in the Ozark hills with his widowed mother, high-school freshman Boady Sanden is beyond ready to move on. He dreams of glass towers and cityscapes, driven by his desire to be anywhere other than Jessup, Missouri. The new kid at St. Ignatius High School, if he isn't being pushed around, he is being completely ignored. Even his beloved woods, his playground as a child and his sanctuary as he grew older, seem to be closing in on him, suffocating him. Then Thomas Elgin moves in across the road, and Boady's life begins to twist and turn. Coming to know the Elgins -- a black family settling into a community where notions of 'us' and 'them' carry the weight of history -- forces Boady to rethink his understanding of the world he's taken for granted. Secrets hidden in plain sight begin to unfold: the mother who wraps herself in the loss of her husband, the neighbor who carries the wounds of a mysterious past that he holds close, the quiet boss who is fighting his own hidden battle. But the biggest secret of all is the disappearance of Lida Poe, the African-American woman who keeps the books at the local plastics factory. Word has it that Ms. Poe left town, along with a hundred thousand dollars of company money. Although Boady has never met the missing woman, he discovers that the threads of her life are woven into the deepest fabric of his world. As the mystery of her fate plays out, Boady begins to see the stark lines of race and class that both bind and divide this small town -- and he will be forced to choose sides.

Four Friends: Promising Lives Cut Short Audiobook

Four Friends: Promising Lives Cut Short

Author: William D. Cohan Narrator: Kevin Stillwell Release Date: July 2019

A powerful portrait of the lives of four boarding school graduates who died too young, John F. Kennedy, Jr. among them, by their fellow Andover classmate, New York Times bestselling author William D. Cohan. In his masterful pieces for Vanity Fair and in his bestselling books, William D. Cohan has proven to be one of the most meticulous and intrepid journalists covering the world of Wall Street and high finance. In his utterly original new audiobook, Four Friends, he brings all of his brilliant reportorial skills to a subject much closer to home: four friends of his who died young. All four attended Andover, the most elite of American boarding schools, before spinning out into very different orbits. Indelibly, using copious interviews from wives, girlfriends, colleagues, and friends, Cohan brings these men to life. Jack Berman, the child of impoverished Holocaust survivors, uses his unlikely Andover pedigree to achieve the American dream, only to be cut down in an unimaginable act of violence. Will Daniel, Harry Truman's grandson and the son of the managing editor of The New York Times, does everything possible to escape the burdens of a family legacy he's ultimately trapped by. Harry Bull builds the life of a careful, successful Chicago lawyer and heir to his family's fortune...before taking an inexplicable and devastating risk on a beautiful summer day. And the life and death of John F. Kennedy, Jr.-a story we think we know-is told here with surprising new details that cast it in an entirely different light. Four Friends is an immersive, wide-ranging, tragic, and ultimately inspiring account of promising lives cut short, written with compassion, honesty, and insight. It not only captures the fragility of life but also its poignant, magisterial, and pivotal moments. Praise for Four Friends: "William Cohan has written a beautiful and heartbreaking book about friendship and privilege, in a corner of American life that suddenly feels very far away." - Malcolm Gladwell, New York Times bestselling author of The Tipping Point and Blink "Four Friends is a tender, bracing meditation on ends and beginnings, large dreams and larger misfortunes, outsized promise and unfathomable loss. It is also an indelible portrait of a time and place, at once masterfully researched and deeply personal." - Stacy Schiff, Pultizer Prize-winning author of A Great Improvisation "Deeply moving, Four Friends explores the idea of fate and shattered promise with intelligence and heart. It will haunt you and make you think." - Susan Orlean, New York Times bestselling author of The Library Book

Chaos: Charles Manson, the CIA and the Secret History of the Sixties Audiobook

Chaos: Charles Manson, the CIA and the Secret History of the Sixties

Author: Dan Piepenbring, Tom O'neill, Tom O’neill Narrator: Kevin Stillwell Release Date: June 2019

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Chaos written by Tom O'Neill with Dan Piepenbring, read by Kevin Stillwell. A journalist's twenty-year obsession with the Manson murders leads to shocking new conspiracy theories about the FBI's involvement in this fascinating re-evaluation of one of the most infamous cases in American history. In 1999, when Tom O'Neill was assigned a magazine piece about the thirtieth anniversary of the Manson murders, he worried there was nothing new to say. Weren't the facts indisputable? Charles Manson had ordered his teenage followers to commit seven brutal murders, and in his thrall, they'd gladly complied. But when O'Neill began reporting the story, he kept finding holes in the prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi's narrative, long enshrined in the bestselling Helter Skelter. Before long, O'Neill had questions about everything from the motive to the manhunt. Though he'd never considered himself a conspiracy theorist, the Manson murders swallowed the next two decades of his career. He was obsessed. Searching but never speculative, CHAOS follows O'Neill's twenty-year effort to rebut the 'official' story behind Manson. Who were his real friends in Hollywood, and how far would they go to hide their ties? Why didn't law enforcement act on their many chances to stop him? And how did he turn a group of peaceful hippies into remorseless killers? O'Neill's hunt for answers leads him from reclusive celebrities to seasoned spies, from the Summer of Love to the shadowy sites of the CIA's mind-control experiments, on a trail rife with cover-ups and coincidences. Featuring hundreds of new interviews and dozens of never-before-seen documents from the LAPD, the FBI and the CIA, CHAOS mounts an argument that could be, according to Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Stephen Kay, strong enough to overturn the verdicts on the Manson murders. In those two dark nights in Los Angeles, O'Neill finds the story of California in the sixties: when charlatans mixed with prodigies, free love was as possible as brainwashing, and utopia-or dystopia-was just an acid trip away. 'Riveting ... Sensational revelations ... True crime fans will be enthralled.' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY '[Full of] scandalous findings ... to me it seems only too plausible. O'Neill's intricately sinister 'secret history' often sounds incredible; that doesn't mean that it's not all true.' OBSERVER

This Is Not a Love Song Audiobook

This Is Not a Love Song

Author: Brendan Mathews Narrator: Emily Cauldwell, Kevin Stillwell, Nicholas Tecosky, Tiffany Morgan Release Date: February 2019

A debut collection of moving and darkly witty stories from an 'admirably fearless' (New York Times Book Review) writer whom critics have compared to Michael Chabon, E.L. Doctorow, and Dennis Lehane When marriages, friendships, and families come undone, to what lengths do we go to keep it all together? That question lies at the heart of Brendan Mathews's buoyant and unforgettable debut story collection. A young mother watches as her desperate husband, convinced a hidden poison lurks inside their walls, tears their home apart. Two journalists bruised by romance and revolution, one a survivor of the Bosnian war, trade tales of lost lovers. A father and his sons haggle over the family business during a high-stakes round of golf. And a lovesick circus clown tries to explain the accidents that bound him to a trapeze artist and a witless lion tamer. If Mathews's novel The World of Tomorrow was an 'outsized' entertainment, a 'big, expressive debut' (Wall Street Journal), then This Is Not a Love Song, two stories from which have been included in The Best American Short Stories, is glorious proof that he excels equally as a miniaturist. From rock-star flameouts to church burnings to ordinary people trying not to fall out of love, these stories are packed with vivid detail, emotional precision, and deft, redemptive humor.

Pain Nation: Sick, Stressed, and All F*cked Up: Is CBD the Cure? Audiobook

Pain Nation: Sick, Stressed, and All F*cked Up: Is CBD the Cure?

Author: Klee Irwin Narrator: Kevin Stillwell Release Date: February 2019

A brilliant, original exploration of how the CBD revolution is going to transform Americans' lives. We are an anxious and uptight nation on the brink, divided by a broken political system and a president who is pushing us over the edge. Many of us are agitated about terrorism, guns, religious fundamentalism, and refugees. With only 5% of the global population, we consume 80% of the world's prescription opioids, antidepressants, and amphetamines-addictive drugs prescribed by medical doctors and known to cause paranoia, homicidal tendencies, and psychosis. Even those who aren't prescribed these medicines are accessing them-think kids using their parents' medication-with disastrous results. Those who can't access opiates through legal means are finding them on the street, resulting in an opioid crisis with overdoses on the rise. The United States has the highest level of suicide in the world. We're stressed, both mentally and physically. We're a nation in pain. How do we deal with this pervasive sickness? CBD (cannabidiol), perhaps the most profound plant medicine ever discovered. Extensive research over the last decade shows that this miracle molecule of the cannabis plant helps with countless medical conditions like nothing we've seen before (and no, it can't get you high). CBD has a proven effect on everything from chronic pain and epilepsy to anxiety and depression. In this provocative book, Klee Irwin makes a compelling case that we should stop being afraid to try this plant medicine. CBD could be the answer so many Americans are seeking.
