Why The New Deal Matters Audiobook

Why The New Deal Matters

Author: Eric Rauchway Narrator: Peter Lerman Release Date: April 2021

The greatest peaceable expression of common purpose in US history, the New Deal altered Americans' relationship with politics, economics, and one another in ways that continue to resonate today. No matter where you look in America, there is likely a building or bridge built through New Deal initiatives. If you have taken out a small business loan from the federal government or drawn unemployment, you can thank the New Deal. While certainly flawed in many aspects-the New Deal was implemented by a Democratic Party still beholden to the segregationist South for its majorities in Congress and the Electoral College-the New Deal was instated at a time of mass unemployment and the rise of fascistic government models and functioned as a bulwark of American democracy in hard times. This book looks at how this legacy, both for good and ill, informs the current debates around governmental responses to crises.

George Washington's Final Battle: The Epic Struggle to Build a Capital City and a Nation Audiobook

George Washington's Final Battle: The Epic Struggle to Build a Capital City and a Nation

Author: Robert P. Watson Narrator: Peter Lerman Release Date: March 2021

George Washington is remembered for leading the Continental Army to victory, presiding over the Constitution, and forging a new nation, but few know the story of his involvement in the establishment of a capital city and how it nearly tore the United States apart. In George Washington's Final Battle, Robert P. Watson brings this tale to life, telling how the country's first president tirelessly advocated for a capital on the shores of the Potomac. Washington envisioned and had a direct role in planning many aspects of the city that would house the young republic. In doing so, he created a landmark that gave the fledgling democracy credibility, united a fractious country, and created a sense of American identity. Although Washington died months before the federal government's official relocation, his vision and influence live on in the city that bears his name. This little-known story of founding intrigue throws George Washington's political acumen into sharp relief and provides a historical lesson in leadership and consensus-building that remains relevant today. This book will fascinate anyone interested in the founding period, the American presidency, and the history of Washington, DC.

Author: Patrick Henry Winston Narrator: Peter Lerman Release Date: December 2020

Do you want to interest a lecture hall of restless students in subjects that you find fascinating? Then you need this book. Make It Clear explains how to communicate-how to speak and write to get your ideas across. Written by an MIT professor who taught his students these techniques for more than forty years, the book starts with the basics-finding your voice, organizing your ideas, making sure what you say is remembered, and receiving critiques ('do not ask for brutal honesty')-and goes on to cover such specifics as preparing slides, writing and rewriting, and even choosing a type family. The book explains why you should start with an empowerment promise and conclude by noting you delivered on that promise. It describes how a well-crafted, explicitly identified slogan, symbol, salient idea, surprise, and story combine to make you and your work memorable. The book lays out the VSN-C (Vision, Steps, News-Contributions) framework as an organizing structure and then describes how to create organize your ideas with a 'broken-glass' outline, how to write to be understood, how to inspire, how to defeat writer's block-and much more.

My House Is Killing Me!: A Complete Guide to a Healthier Indoor Environment (2nd Edition) Audiobook

My House Is Killing Me!: A Complete Guide to a Healthier Indoor Environment (2nd Edition)

Author: Connie L. May, Jeffrey C. May Narrator: Peter Lerman Release Date: December 2020

It's a world we barely see, but it is teeming with life. In the dust of a typical house, carpet beetles, mites, silverfish, and other creatures live and die, producing allergen-laden dust. Meanwhile, stinky mold, bacteria, and yeast lurk undetected in heating and cooling systems. Debris dispersed into the air from these organisms can cause runny noses, itchy eyes, coughing, headaches, and breathing difficulties. Some people, especially those made highly sensitive by allergies, suffer from devastating health problems and the worry that, as one such sufferer lamented, 'My house is killing me!' Scrutinizing house dust and air samples with a microscope, indoor air quality expert Jeffrey C. May has spent his career helping people identify what's causing their chronic health problems. In this thoroughly revised edition of My House Is Killing Me! Jeff and Connie May draw on the dramatic personal stories of their clients' suffering and relief to help listeners understand the links between environmental factors and human health. Explaining how air conditioning, finished basements, and other home features affect indoor air quality, the authors offer a step-by-step approach to identifying, controlling, and often eliminating the sources of indoor pollutants and allergens.

The Real Business of IT: How CIOs Create and Communicate Value Audiobook

The Real Business of IT: How CIOs Create and Communicate Value

Author: George Westerman, Richard Hunter Narrator: Peter Lerman Release Date: November 2020

If you're a general manager or CFO, do you feel you're spending too much on IT or wishing you could get better returns from your IT investments? If so, it's time to examine what's behind this IT-as-cost mind-set. In The Real Business of IT, Richard Hunter and George Westerman reveal that the cost mind-set stems from IT leaders' inability to communicate about the business value they create-so CIOs get stuck discussing budgets rather than their contributions to the organization. The authors explain how IT leaders can combat this mind-set by first using information technology to generate three forms of value important to leaders throughout the organization: - Value for money when your IT department operates efficiently and effectively - An investment in business performance evidenced when IT helps divisions, units, and departments boost profitability - Personal value of CIOs as leaders whose contributions to their enterprise go well beyond their area of specialization The authors show how to communicate about these forms of value with non-IT leaders-so they understand how your firm is benefiting and see IT as the strategic powerhouse it truly is.

The Sprawl: Reconsidering the Weird American Suburbs Audiobook

The Sprawl: Reconsidering the Weird American Suburbs

Author: Jason Diamond Narrator: Peter Lerman Release Date: November 2020

For decades the suburbs have been where art happens despite: despite the conformity, the emptiness, the sameness. Time and again, the story is one of gems formed under pressure and that resentment of the suburbs is the key ingredient for creative transcendence. But what if, contrary to that, the suburb has actually been an incubator for distinctly American art, as positively and as surely as in any other cultural hothouse? Mixing personal experience, cultural reportage, and history while rejecting cliches and pieties and these essays stretch across the country in an effort to show that this uniquely American milieu deserves another look.

Less Than Human: Why We Demean, Enslave, and Exterminate Others Audiobook

Less Than Human: Why We Demean, Enslave, and Exterminate Others

Author: David Livingstone Smith Narrator: Peter Lerman Release Date: October 2020

A revelatory look at why we dehumanize each other, with stunning examples from world history as well as today's headlines 'Brute.' 'Cockroach.' 'Lice.' 'Vermin.' People often regard members of their own kind as less than human, and use terms like these for those whom they wish to harm, enslave, or exterminate. Dehumanization has made atrocities like the Holocaust, the genocide in Rwanda, and the slave trade possible. But it isn't just a relic of the past. We still find it in war, genocide, xenophobia, and racism. Smith shows that it is a dangerous mistake to think of dehumanization as the exclusive preserve of Nazis, communists, terrorists, Jews, Palestinians, or any other monster of the moment. We are all potential dehumanizers, just as we are all potential objects of dehumanization. The problem of dehumanization is everyone's problem. Less Than Human is the first book to illuminate precisely how and why we sometimes think of others as subhuman creatures. It draws on a rich mix of history, evolutionary psychology, biology, anthropology, and philosophy to document the pervasiveness of dehumanization, describe its forms, and explain why we so often resort to it. Less Than Human is a powerful and highly original study of the roots of human violence and bigotry, and it as timely as it is relevant.
