Frank Ramsey: A Sheer Excess of Powers Audiobook

Frank Ramsey: A Sheer Excess of Powers

Author: Cheryl Misak Narrator: Liam Gerrard Release Date: September 2020

When he died in 1930 aged twenty-six, Frank Ramsey had already invented one branch of mathematics and two branches of economics, laying the foundations for decision theory and game theory. Keynes deferred to him; he was the only philosopher whom Wittgenstein treated as an equal. Had he lived he might have been recognized as the most brilliant thinker of the century. This amiable shambling bear of a man was an ardent socialist, a believer in free love, and an intimate of the Bloomsbury set. For the first time Cheryl Misak tells the full story of his extraordinary life.

Trump and Churchill: Defenders of Western Civilization Audiobook

Trump and Churchill: Defenders of Western Civilization

Author: Nick Adams Narrator: Liam Gerrard Release Date: August 2020

Trump and Churchill both fought valiantly to protect Western Civilization, and while fighting different forms of tyranny, Trump could very well be to the twenty-first century what Churchill was to the twentieth. What do Winston Churchill-the eloquent, eternally quotable wordsmith, pudgy politician of fifty years, wealthy aristocrat, war-time Prime Minister of England-and Donald Trump, the 6'4', brash, Twitter happy, political neophyte, billionaire entrepreneur-have in common? In his new book, complete with never-before-told anecdotes, bestselling author Nick Adams explores how both leaders, with seemingly nothing in common, turned their day's prevailing politics on its head. In doing so, they both endured shockingly similar battles instigated by the political establishment seeking their destruction. Trump and Churchill's unorthodox approach to both domestic and international relations has rescued Western Civilization from the brink.

Sensible Politics: Visualizing International Relations Audiobook

Sensible Politics: Visualizing International Relations

Author: William A. Callahan Narrator: Liam Gerrard Release Date: August 2020

Visual images are everywhere in international politics. But how are we to understand them? In Sensible Politics, William A. Callahan uses his expertise in theory and filmmaking to explore not only what visuals mean, but also how visuals can viscerally move and connect us in 'affective communities of sense.' The book's rich analysis of visual images (photographs, film, art) and visual artifacts (maps, veils, walls, gardens, cyberspace) shows how critical scholarship needs to push beyond issues of identity and security to appreciate the creative politics of social-ordering and world-ordering. Here 'sensible politics' isn't just sensory, but looks beyond icons and ideology to the affective politics of everyday life. It challenges our Eurocentric understanding of international politics by exploring the meaning and impact of visuals from Asia and the Middle East. Sensible Politics offers a unique approach to politics that allows us to not only think visually, but also feel visually-and creatively act visually for a multisensory appreciation of politics.

New York Times bestselling author Karen Ranney takes readers back to beautiful Scotland in the first novel in her breathtaking new series. Since she was a little girl, Jennifer Adaire, daughter of the Earl of Burfield, has loved Gordon McDonnell even though his station as the gardener’s son made him strictly forbidden to her.

Out of My Skull: The Psychology of Boredom Audiobook

Out of My Skull: The Psychology of Boredom

Author: James Danckert, John D. Eastwood Narrator: Liam Gerrard Release Date: June 2020

We avoid boredom at all costs. It makes us feel restless and agitated. Desperate for something to do, we play games on our phones, retie our shoes, or even count ceiling tiles. And if we escape it this time, eventually it will strike again. But what if we listened to boredom instead of banishing it? Psychologists James Danckert and John Eastwood contend that boredom isn't bad for us. It's just that we do a bad job of heeding its guidance. When we're bored, our minds are telling us that whatever we are doing isn't working-we're failing to satisfy our basic psychological need to be engaged and effective. Too many of us respond poorly. We become prone to accidents, risky activities, loneliness, and ennui, and we waste ever more time on technological distractions. But, Danckert and Eastwood argue, we can let boredom have the opposite effect, motivating the change we need. The latest research suggests that an adaptive approach to boredom will help us avoid its troubling effects and, through its reminder to become aware and involved, boredom might lead us to live fuller lives. Out of My Skull combines scientific findings with everyday observations to explain an experience we'd like to ignore, but from which we have a lot to learn. Boredom evolved to help us. It's time we gave it a chance.

Short Stories - Volume One Audiobook

Short Stories - Volume One

Herbert George Wells was one of the most prolific and visionary British writers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. H. G. Wells, as he is universally known, is now best remembered for his science fiction novels, although he wrote across many genres, including nonfiction. His fiction embraces history, science fiction, horror, satire, fantasy, and social commentary. Wells was also a futurist, foreseeing air travel, tanks (as in “The Land Ironclads”—part of this anthology) space travel, nuclear weapons, and even satellite television. Amongst his writings are dozens of short stories; some are very well known, others less so. When planning this collection, Raconteurs sought stories that we enjoyed ourselves and which embody the range of H. G. Wells’s imagination and talent. This collection of thirteen short stories includes gothic horror, fantasy, ghost stories, science fiction, satire, and stories of domestic and social commentary. It is a collection that we hope will intrigue and entertain you—and leave you wanting to hear more. H. G. Wells’s Short Stories - Volume One is produced by Raconteurs in partnership with Spoken Realms and includes: “The Magic Shop” – read by James Gillies“The Remarkable Case of Davidson’s Eyes” – read by Nigel Patterson“The Door in the Wall” – read by Greg Wagland“The Man Who Could Work Miracles” – read by Malk Williams“The Story of the Late Mr Elvesham” – read by Tim Bruce“The Diamond Maker” – read by Liam Gerrard“Miss Winchelsea’s Heart” – read by Helen Lloyd“A Moonlight Fable” – read by James Gillies“The Red Room” – read by Nigel Patterson“The Star” – read by Greg Wagland“The Land Ironclads” – read by Malk Williams“The Jilting of Jane” – read by Tim Bruce“The Cone” – read by Liam Gerrard

Slowdown: The End of the Great Acceleration-and Why It's Good for the Planet, the Economy, and Our L Audiobook

Slowdown: The End of the Great Acceleration-and Why It's Good for the Planet, the Economy, and Our L

Author: Danny Dorling Narrator: Liam Gerrard Release Date: May 2020

A powerful and counterintuitive argument that we should welcome the current slowdown-of population growth, economies, and technological innovation Drawing from an incredibly rich trove of global data, this groundbreaking book reveals that human progress has been slowing down since the early 1970s. Danny Dorling uses compelling visualizations to illustrate how fertility rates, growth in GDP per person, increases in life expectancy, and even the frequency of new social movements have all steadily declined over the last few generations. Perhaps most surprising of all is the fact that even as new technologies frequently reshape our everyday lives and are widely believed to be propelling our civilization into new and uncharted waters, the rate of technological progress is also rapidly dropping. Rather than lament this turn of events, Dorling embraces it as a moment of promise and a move toward stability, and he notes that many of the older great strides in progress that have defined recent history also brought with them widespread warfare, divided societies, and massive inequality.

AI Ethics Audiobook

AI Ethics

Author: Mark Coeckelbergh Narrator: Liam Gerrard Release Date: April 2020

Artificial intelligence powers Google's search engine, enables Facebook to target advertising, and allows Alexa and Siri to do their jobs. AI is also behind self-driving cars, predictive policing, and autonomous weapons that can kill without human intervention. These and other AI applications raise complex ethical issues that are the subject of ongoing debate. This volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series offers an accessible synthesis of these issues. Mark Coeckelbergh describes influential AI narratives, ranging from Frankenstein's monster to transhumanism and the technological singularity. He surveys relevant philosophical discussions: questions about the fundamental differences between humans and machines and debates over the moral status of AI. He explains the technology of AI, describing different approaches and focusing on machine learning and data science. He offers an overview of important ethical issues, including privacy concerns, responsibility and the delegation of decision making, transparency, and bias as it arises at all stages of data science processes. He also considers the future of work in an AI economy. Finally, he analyzes a range of policy proposals and discusses challenges for policymakers.

I, Iago: A Novel Audiobook

I, Iago: A Novel

Author: Nicole Galland Narrator: Liam Gerrard Release Date: April 2020

The critically acclaimed author of The Fool's Tale, Nicole Galland now approaches William Shakespeare's classic drama of jealousy, betrayal, and murder from the opposite side. I, Iago is an ingenious, brilliantly crafted novel that allows one of literature's greatest villains-the deceitful schemer Iago, from the Bard's immortal tragedy, Othello-to take center stage in order to reveal his 'true' motivations. This is Iago as you've never known him, his past and influences breathtakingly illuminated, in a fictional reexamination that explores the eternal question: is true evil the result of nature versus nurture . . . or something even more complicated? Contains mature themes.
