Faith, Hope and Healing: Inspiring Lessons Learned from People Living with Cancer Audiobook

Faith, Hope and Healing: Inspiring Lessons Learned from People Living with Cancer

Author: Bernie Siegel, M.D. Narrator: Peter Berkrot Release Date: July 2020

Bernie Siegel broke new ground with his monumental book Love, Medicine, and Miracles, in which he explored the powerful role the mind can play in fighting illness. Sharing stories of seriously ill patients who survived against the odds and those who seemed to give in to their own deaths, the book inspired countless individuals to consider the possibilities of thinking themselves well. Siegel believed-and still does-that the power to heal comes from the human mind through will, determination, and love. Over the last twenty years, his philosophy and advice have led many physicians and other healthcare professionals to help patients participate in and influence their own recovery.Many who experienced Love, Medicine, and Miracles have wondered what comes next. What happened to patients who followed Siegel's advice? In Faith, Hope, and Healing, Siegel shares the inspiring stories of people who have experienced cancer and found deeper faith, hope, joy, and healing through the process. Grouped into sections on faith, hope, and healing, these stories and Siegel's insightful commentaries will encourage and help listeners develop an attitude and personality that survivors share, while also offering myriad ways to get through difficult times and discover the gifts that illness can bring into a person's life. In this book, Siegel reveals what these people's experiences tell us about our common strengths and humanity and how to live an authentic, fulfilling life.

A Dirty Year: Sex, Suffrage, and Scandal in Gilded Age New York Audiobook

A Dirty Year: Sex, Suffrage, and Scandal in Gilded Age New York

Author: Bill Greer Narrator: Peter Berkrot Release Date: July 2020

As 1872 opened, the New York Times headlined four stories that symptomized the decay in public morals that the editors so frequently decried: financier Jim Fisk was gunned down in a love triangle; suffragist and free-love advocate Victoria Woodhull was running for president; antivice activist Anthony Comstock battled smut dealers poisoning children’s minds; and abortionists were thriving. Throughout the year these stories intertwined in unimaginable ways, pulling in others, both famous and infamous—suffragists Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton; Brooklyn’s beloved preacher Henry Ward Beecher; the nation’s richest tycoon, Cornelius Vanderbilt; and William Howe, preeminent counsel to the criminal element. From rigged elections, everyday shootings, and attacks on the press to sexual impropriety, reproductive rights, and the chasm between rich and poor, the issues of the day still resonate. Political parties split over a bitterly contested election; suffragist battled suffragist over bettering women’s place in society; and pious saints fought soulless sinners, until at year-end this jumble of conflicts exploded in the greatest sensation of the nineteenth century.

Dead Girl Blues

But, um, not in that order. Right. But it's what he does with the rest of his life that's really interesting . . .

The Demagogue's Playbook: The Battle for American Democracy from the Founders to Trump Audiobook

The Demagogue's Playbook: The Battle for American Democracy from the Founders to Trump

Author: Eric A. Posner Narrator: Peter Berkrot Release Date: June 2020

What Happens to Democracy When a Demagogue Comes to Power? 'It is hard to imagine understanding the Trump presidency and its significance without reading this book.” — Bob Bauer, Former Chief Counsel to President Barack Obama What—and who—is a demagogue? How did America’s Founders envision the presidency? What should a constitutional democracy look like—and how can it be fixed when it appears to be broken? Something is definitely wrong with Donald Trump’s presidency, but what exactly? The extraordinary negative reaction to Trump’s election—by conservative intellectuals, liberals, Democrats, and global leaders alike—goes beyond ordinary partisan and policy disagreements. It reflects genuine fear about the vitality of our constitutional system. The Founders, reaching back to classical precedents, feared that their experiment in mass self-government could produce a demagogue: a charismatic ruler who would gain and hold on to power by manipulating the public rather than by advancing the public good. President Trump, who has played to the mob and attacked institutions from the judiciary to the press, appears to embody these ideas. How can we move past his rhetoric and maintain faith in our great nation? In The Demagogue’s Playbook, acclaimed legal scholar Eric A. Posner offers a blueprint for how America can prevent the rise of another demagogue and protect the features of a democracy that help it thrive—and restore national greatness, for one and all. A Macmillan Audio production from All Points Books “Cuts through the hyperbole and hysteria that often distorts assessments of our republic, particularly at this time.” —Alan Taylor, winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for History

Dead Calm Audiobook

Dead Calm

Author: Charles Williams Narrator: Peter Berkrot Release Date: April 2020

Rae and Ingram are nineteen days out of the Panama Canal, sailing slowly across the wide, flat Pacific on the Saracen, when they find Hughie Warriner in his dinghy. He was on a pleasure cruise on his yacht, the Orpheus, he says, when food poisoning killed his passengers and his ship began to sink. After an alleged ten days of desperately fighting to stay afloat, he spied the Saracen and rowed to his salvation. Finding the stranded yacht, against Warriner’s wishes, Ingram boards the Orpheus. There he finds Warriner’s passengers—very much alive and hungry for revenge against the man who attacked them and left them to drown. Ingram tries to get back to his ship, but it’s too late. Warriner escapes in the Saracen, taking Rae hostage, and Ingram has no means to save them but tattered sails, a sinking ship, and rage that burns hotter than the merciless Pacific sun.

The Kosher Capones: A History of Chicago's Jewish Gangsters Audiobook

The Kosher Capones: A History of Chicago's Jewish Gangsters

Author: Joe Kraus Narrator: Peter Berkrot Release Date: January 2020

The Kosher Capones tells the fascinating story of Chicago's Jewish gangsters from Prohibition into the 1980s. Author Joe Kraus traces these gangsters through the lives, criminal careers, and conflicts of Benjamin "Zukie the Bookie" Zuckerman, last of the independent West Side Jewish bosses, and Lenny Patrick, eventual head of the Syndicate's "Jewish wing." These two men linked the early Jewish gangsters of the neighborhoods of Maxwell Street and Lawndale to the notorious Chicago Outfit that emerged from Al Capone's criminal confederation. Focusing on the murder of Zuckerman by Patrick, Kraus introduces us to the different models of organized crime they represented, a raft of largely forgotten Jewish gangsters, and the changing nature of Chicago's political corruption. Hard-to-believe anecdotes of corrupt politicians, seasoned killers, and in-over-their-heads criminal operators spotlight the magnitude and importance of Jewish gangsters to the story of Windy City mob rule. With an eye for the dramatic, The Kosher Capones takes us deep inside a hidden society and offers glimpses of the men who ran the Jewish criminal community in Chicago for more than sixty years.

The Girl in the Photograph: The True Story of a Native American Child, Lost and Found in America Audiobook

The Girl in the Photograph: The True Story of a Native American Child, Lost and Found in America

Author: Byron L. Dorgan Narrator: Peter Berkrot Release Date: November 2019

On a winter morning in 1990, Senator Byron Dorgan of North Dakota picked up the Bismarck Tribune. On the front page, a small girl gazed into the distance, shedding a tear. The headline: Foster home children beaten-and nobody's helping. Dorgan, who had been working with American Indian tribes to secure resources, was distressed. He flew to the Standing Rock Indian Reservation to meet with five-year-old Tamara and her grandfather. They became friends. Then she disappeared. And he would search for her for decades until they finally found each other again. This book is her story, from childhood to the present, but it's also the story of a people and a nation. More than one in three American Indian/Alaskan Native children live in poverty. AI/AN children are disproportionately in foster care and awaiting adoption. Suicide among AI/AN youth ages 15 to 24 is 2.5 times the national rate. How have we allowed this to happen? As distressing a situation as it is, this is also a story of hope and resilience. Dorgan, who founded the Center for Native American Youth at the Aspen Institute, has worked tirelessly to bring Native youth voices to the forefront of policy discussions, engage Native youth in leadership and advocacy, and secure and share resources for Native youth.
