101 Skills You Need to Survive in the Woods: The Most Effective Wilderness Know-How on Fire-Making,

Author: Kevin Estela Narrator: Matthew Boston Release Date: June 2020

'Feeder' mind-set means being in control of a situation, proactive rather than reactive. It is an optimistic outlook that reframes any situation as a learning experience. Kevin Estela teaches survival skills from this feeder-based perspective, which is what separates his teaching style from other wilderness instructors. Kevin has written the quintessential guide for an outdoor enthusiast's 'bucket list' of skills-how to make a fire, build a shelter, gather food, find water, use a knife correctly, and make cordage. These skills will keep you safe and better prepare you to deal with emergencies in the field, when you'll need the additional skills of signaling and communication, navigation, and crisis first aid taught in this book. Each chapter concludes with more advanced techniques to build your skills in various challenging situations, with tips that even seasoned survival enthusiasts haven't thought of. 101 Skills You Need to Survive in the Woods is a lifetime reference you will turn to over and over again. It will become the first thing you pack for any adventure and just might save your-or someone else's-life.

Blockchain Basics: A Non-Technical Introduction in 25 Steps

Author: Daniel Drescher Narrator: Matthew Boston Release Date: May 2020

In twenty-five concise steps, you will learn the basics of blockchain technology. No mathematical formulas, program code, or computer science jargon are used. No previous knowledge in computer science, mathematics, programming, or cryptography is required. Terminology is explained through analogies and metaphors.

It does so by explaining both the technical concepts that make up the blockchain and their role in business-relevant applications. What you'll learn: what the blockchain is; why it is needed and what problem it solves; why there is so much excitement about the blockchain and its potential; major components and their purpose; how various components of the blockchain work and interact; limitations, why they exist, and what has been done to overcome them; and major application scenarios. Who this book is for: Everyone who wants to get a general idea of what blockchain technology is, how it works, and how it will potentially change the financial system as we know it.

The Intelligent Gardner: Growing Nutrient-Dense Food Audiobook

The Intelligent Gardner: Growing Nutrient-Dense Food

Author: Steve Solomon Narrator: Matthew Boston Release Date: March 2020

Beyond organic-a practical guide to nutrient-dense food Vegetables, fruits, and grains are a major source of vital nutrients, but centuries of intensive agriculture have depleted our soils to historic lows. As a result, the broccoli you consume today may have less than half the vitamins and minerals that the equivalent serving would have contained a hundred years ago. This is a matter of serious concern, since poor nutrition has been linked to myriad health problems including cancer, heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes. For optimum health we must increase the nutrient density of our foods to the levels enjoyed by previous generations. To grow produce of the highest nutritional quality the essential minerals lacking in our soil must be replaced, but this re-mineralization calls for far more attention to detail than the simple addition of composted manure or NPK fertilizers. The Intelligent Gardener demystifies the process, while simultaneously debunking much of the false and misleading information perpetuated by both the conventional and organic agricultural movements. In doing so, it conclusively establishes the link between healthy soil, healthy food, and healthy people.

Strong Towns: A Bottom-Up Revolution to Rebuild American Prosperity Audiobook

Strong Towns: A Bottom-Up Revolution to Rebuild American Prosperity

Author: Charles L. Marohn Jr. Narrator: Matthew Boston Release Date: November 2019

Strong Towns: A Bottom-Up Revolution to Build American Prosperity is a book of forward-thinking ideas that breaks with modern wisdom to present a new vision of urban development in the United States. Presenting the foundational ideas of the Strong Towns movement he cofounded, Charles Marohn explains why cities of all sizes continue to struggle to meet their basic needs, and reveals the new paradigm that can solve this longstanding problem. You'll learn why inducing growth and development has been the conventional response to urban financial struggles-and why it just doesn't work. New development and high-risk investing don't generate enough wealth to support itself, and cities continue to struggle. Listen to this book to find out how cities large and small can focus on bottom-up investments to minimize risk and maximize their ability to strengthen the community financially and improve citizens' quality of life. Strong Towns acknowledges that there is a problem with the American approach to growth and shows community leaders a new way forward. The Strong Towns response is a revolution in how we assemble the places we live.
