Breakfast with Seneca: A Stoic Guide to the Art of Living Audiobook

Breakfast with Seneca: A Stoic Guide to the Art of Living

Author: David Fideler Narrator: Paul Heitsch Release Date: December 2021

The first clear and faithful guide to the timeless, practical teachings of the Stoic philosopher Seneca. Stoicism, the most influential philosophy of the Roman Empire, offers refreshingly modern ways to strengthen our inner character in the face of an unpredictable world. Widely recognized as the most talented and humane writer of the Stoic tradition, Seneca teaches us to live with freedom and purpose. His most enduring work, over a hundred 'Letters from a Stoic' written to a close friend, explains how to handle adversity; overcome grief, anxiety, and anger; transform setbacks into opportunities for growth; and recognize the true nature of friendship. In Breakfast with Seneca, philosopher David Fideler mines Seneca's classic works in a series of focused chapters, clearly explaining Seneca's ideas without oversimplifying them. Best enjoyed as a daily ritual, like an energizing cup of coffee, Seneca's wisdom provides us with a steady stream of time-tested advice about the human condition-which, as it turns out, hasn't changed much over the past two thousand years.

Gold Medal Selling: Ten Conditioning Strategies for World Class Performance Audiobook

Gold Medal Selling: Ten Conditioning Strategies for World Class Performance

Author: Sandler Training Narrator: Paul Heitsch Release Date: November 2021

How much specialized training must a world-class athlete put in before they reach that coveted top step, hear their country's national anthem played, and receive the gold medal? The answer varies by country and by specialty . . . but it is always measured in years and sometimes even in decades. Now, how much sales training do most salespeople get before they start competing on behalf of their company? Often there is zero specialized training-or, if the salespeople are lucky, they may get a couple of days at a seminar. Most sales 'athletes' have simply not put in the training time. Gold medal salespeople, like gold medal athletes, do not let outside circumstances deter them from anything. They assume that reality is up to them to define. External factors do not affect the self-belief of the gold medal sales professional. This book uncovers how to instill and strengthen this critical mindset . . . and what sprinter Usain Bolt's training strategy can teach sales professionals in any industry. Each chapter begins with the real-life story of a gold-medal-winning athlete whose career exemplifies the sales discipline under discussion. Profiles of Jesse Owens, Michael Phelps, Serena Williams, Cathy Freeman, and many other champions, bring the key conditioning principles of Gold Medal Sellers to life!

Love: A Very Short Introduction Audiobook

Love: A Very Short Introduction

Author: Ronald De Sousa Narrator: Paul Heitsch Release Date: November 2021

Although there are many kinds of love, erotic love has been celebrated in art and poetry as life's most rewarding and exalting experience, worth living and dying for and bringing out the best in ourselves. And yet it has excused, and even been thought to justify, the most reprehensible crimes. Why should this be? This Very Short Introduction explores this and other puzzling questions. Do we love someone for their virtue, their beauty, or their moral or other qualities? Are love's characteristic desires altruistic or selfish? Are there duties of love? What do the sciences-neuroscience, evolutionary and social psychology, and anthropology-tell us about love? Many of the answers we give to such questions are determined not so much by the facts of human nature as by the ideology of love. Ronald de Sousa considers some of the many paradoxes raised by love, looking at the different kinds of love-affections, affiliation, philia, storage, agape, but focusses on eros, or romantic love. He considers whether our conventional beliefs about love and sex are deeply irrational and argues that alternative conceptions of love and sex, although hard to formulate and live by, may be worth striving for.

Kill Your Heroes Audiobook

Kill Your Heroes

Author: Slade Grayson Narrator: Paul Heitsch Release Date: November 2021

Eddie Marr never planned to be a supervillain, but it seemed like a surefire way to become rich and famous. All he had to do was come up with a flashy costume, a signature gimmick, and commit a couple of high profile (yet nonviolent) crimes. Eddie figured he'd eventually get caught and spend a year or two in a minimum security prison. Then he'd write a tell-all book, do the talk show circuit, and parlay that into a regular TV hosting gig. But the best laid plans . . . As the Puzzler, Eddie was strictly a C List supervillain. He matched wits with Dark Revenger, a grim and gritty, street-level superhero. Eddie always managed to get away unscathed, but one night, things go horribly wrong and the Dark Revenger is dead. It's one thing to steal the Mona Lisa. But killing a world famous superhero? That's hard time with the worst of the worst. Most people would cash out, change their identity, and go on the run. But Eddie knows there's no running if you're responsible for the death of an A List superhero. The only chance Eddie has in staying out of prison, and staying alive, is to take the Dark Revenger's place and not let the rest of the world know the original is dead.

Of Fear and Strangers: A History of Xenophobia Audiobook

Of Fear and Strangers: A History of Xenophobia

Author: George Makari Narrator: Paul Heitsch Release Date: September 2021

By 2016, it was impossible to ignore an international resurgence of xenophobia. What had happened? Looking for clues, psychiatrist and historian George Makari started out in search of the idea's origins. To his astonishment, he discovered an unfolding series of never-told stories. While a fear and hatred of strangers may be ancient, he found that the notion of a dangerous bias called 'xenophobia' arose not so long ago. Coined by late nineteenth-century doctors and political commentators and popularized by an eccentric stenographer, xenophobia emerged alongside Western nationalism, colonialism, mass migration, and genocide. In this groundbreaking work, the author investigates these forces alongside the writings of figures such as Joseph Conrad, Albert Camus, and Richard Wright, and innovators like Walter Lippmann, Sigmund Freud, Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, and Frantz Fanon. In the end, Of Fear and Strangers pulls together the most critical contributions, to help us comprehend the 'New Xenophobia' we now face.

Midnight Audiobook

Midnight

Author: Brenden Carlson Narrator: Paul Heitsch Release Date: August 2021

In a gritty, tech-noir version of 1930s Manhattan, an ex-cop and his robot partner must stop a killer who's sending the city into chaos. December, 1933. The city that cannot sleep, where cartels and mobsters go bump in the night. Manhattan's delicate peace is broken when four politicians in the pocket of America's reigning megacorporation are murdered at the Edison Hotel, dispatched by an unknown assassin wielding a rare and unique weapon. The NYPD calls upon the only man for the job: Elias Roche, the Nightcaller. With Upper City bigwigs in a panic and the shadowy Iron Hands poised to make a grab for the Lower City, Roche is having doubts about his role in the complex power structure as a former cop and current mob enforcer. But he sets out to investigate, now under more scrutiny than ever before: a new radio show based on his escapades thrusts unwanted fame upon him, the FBI are breathing down his neck, and a relentless journalist is dogging his every move. Meanwhile, an awakening cynicism in his robot partner, Allen Erzly, is turning their already bleak world upside down. As the pressure mounts, it's a race to find the killer before the eve of the New Year.

The Hidden History of Coined Words Audiobook

The Hidden History of Coined Words

Author: Ralph Keyes Narrator: Paul Heitsch Release Date: July 2021

Successful word-coinages-those that stay in currency for a good long time-tend to conceal their beginnings. We take them at face value and rarely when and where they were first minted. Engaging, illuminating, and authoritative, Ralph Keyes's The Hidden History of Coined Words explores the etymological underworld of terms and expressions and uncovers plenty of hidden gems. He also finds some fascinating patterns, such as that successful neologisms are as likely to be created by chance as by design. A remarkable number of new words were coined whimsically, originally intended to troll or taunt. Casual wisecracking produced software, crowdsource, and blog. More than a few resulted from happy accidents, such as typos, mistranslations, and mishearing (bigly and buttonhole), or from being taken entirely out of context (robotics). Neologizers (a Thomas Jefferson coinage) include not just scholars and writers but cartoonists, columnists, children's book authors. Keyes considers all contenders, while also leading us through the fray between new word partisans, and those who resist them strenuously. He concludes with advice about how to make your own successful coinage. The Hidden History of Coined Words will appeal not just to word mavens but history buffs, trivia contesters, and anyone who loves the immersive power of language.

Göring's Man in Paris: The Story of a Nazi Art Plunderer and His World Audiobook

Göring's Man in Paris: The Story of a Nazi Art Plunderer and His World

Author: Jonathan Petropoulos Narrator: Paul Heitsch Release Date: June 2021

A charged biography of a notorious Nazi art plunderer and his career in the postwar art world Bruno Lohse (1911-2007) was one of the most notorious art plunderers in history. Appointed by Hermann Göring to Hitler's special art looting agency, he went on to supervise the systematic theft and distribution of over 22,000 artworks, largely from French Jews; helped Göring develop an enormous private art collection; and staged twenty private exhibitions of stolen art in Paris's Jeu de Paume museum during the war. By the 1950s Lohse was officially denazified but back in the art dealing world, offering looted masterpieces to American museums. After his death, dozens of paintings by Renoir, Monet, and Pissarro, among others, were found in his Zurich bank vault and adorning the walls of his Munich home. Jonathan Petropoulos spent nearly a decade interviewing Lohse and continues to serve as an expert witness for Holocaust restitution cases. Here he tells the story of Lohse's life, offering a critical examination of the postwar art world.

To Kidnap a Pope: Napoleon and Pius VII Audiobook

To Kidnap a Pope: Napoleon and Pius VII

Author: Ambrogio A. Caiani Narrator: Paul Heitsch Release Date: May 2021

A groundbreaking account of Napoleon Bonaparte, Pope Pius VII, and the kidnapping that would forever divide church and state. In the wake of the French Revolution, Napoleon Bonaparte, First Consul of France, and Pope Pius VII shared a common goal: to reconcile the church with the state. But while they were able to work together initially, formalizing an agreement in 1801, relations between them rapidly deteriorated. In 1809, Napoleon ordered the Pope's arrest. Ambrogio Caiani provides a pioneering account of the tempestuous relationship between the emperor and his most unyielding opponent. Drawing on original findings in the Vatican and other European archives, Caiani uncovers the nature of Catholic resistance against Napoleon's empire; charts Napoleon's approach to Papal power; and reveals how the Emperor attempted to subjugate the church to his vision of modernity. Gripping and vivid, this book shows the struggle for supremacy between two great individuals-and sheds new light on the conflict that would shape relations between the Catholic church and the modern state for centuries to come.

Toxic: A History of Nerve Agents, From Nazi Germany to Putin's Russia Audiobook

Toxic: A History of Nerve Agents, From Nazi Germany to Putin's Russia

Author: Dan Kaszeta Narrator: Paul Heitsch Release Date: April 2021

Nerve agents are the world's deadliest means of chemical warfare. Nazi Germany developed the first military-grade nerve agents and massive industry for their manufacture-yet, strangely, the Third Reich never used them. At the end of the Second World War, the Allies were stunned to discover this advanced and extensive program. The Soviets and Western powers embarked on a new arms race, amassing huge chemical arsenals. From their Nazi invention to the 2018 Novichok attack in Britain, Dan Kaszeta uncovers nerve agents' gradual spread across the world, despite international arms control efforts. They've been deployed in the Iran-Iraq War, by terrorists in Japan, in the Syrian Civil War, and by assassins in Malaysia and Salisbury-always with bitter consequences. Toxic recounts the grisly history of these weapons of mass destruction: a deadly suite of invisible, odorless killers.

Footsteps of Federer: A Fan's Pilgrimage Across 7 Swiss Cantons in 10 Acts Audiobook

Footsteps of Federer: A Fan's Pilgrimage Across 7 Swiss Cantons in 10 Acts

Author: Dave Seminara Narrator: Paul Heitsch Release Date: March 2021

Roger Federer could live anywhere in the world, but he always returns to the place he loves most: Switzerland. Dave Seminara is a mad traveler and tennis lifer who has written about Federer for the New York Times and other publications. A pair of autoimmune diseases and a knee surgery kept Dave from playing tennis for years, but as he inched toward recovery, he had a bright idea: why not start his tennis comeback on hallowed ground-courts that his hero Roger Federer graced in Switzerland. Footsteps of Federer is a funny, novella-length account of Seminara's travels across seven Swiss cantons in search of insights into Federer's character, which is inextricably linked to his deep roots in, and love for, his country. Seminara timed his unique pilgrimage to the 2019 Swiss Indoors, where he had a chance to ask Roger a number of offbeat questions before and after Federer hoisted his record tenth title there. Seminara's Federer pilgrimage took him to Switzerland's most important abbey, where he prayed with Abbot Urban Federer; to the vineyard of Jakob Federer from Berneck, where the Federer clan originated from; to the stunning villa where Roger and Mirka were married; and to many of the neighborhoods and tennis clubs where Roger has lived and trained at over the years.
