Nothing: A Very Short Introduction Audiobook

Nothing: A Very Short Introduction

Author: Frank Close Narrator: Ray Chase Release Date: June 2021

This short, smart book tells you everything you need to know about 'nothing.' What remains when you take all the matter away? Can empty space-'nothing'-exist? To answer these questions, eminent scientist Frank Close takes us on a lively and accessible journey that ranges from ancient ideas and cultural superstitions to the frontiers of current research, illuminating the story of how scientists have explored the void and the rich discoveries they have made there. Listeners will find an enlightening history of the vacuum: how the efforts to make a better vacuum led to the discovery of the electron; the ideas of Newton, Mach, and Einstein on the nature of space and time; the mysterious aether and how Einstein did away with it; and the latest ideas that the vacuum is filled with the Higgs field. The story ranges from the absolute zero of temperature and the seething vacuum of virtual particles and anti-particles that fills space, to the extreme heat and energy of the early universe.

Press Reset: Ruin and Recovery in the Video Game Industry Audiobook

Press Reset: Ruin and Recovery in the Video Game Industry

Author: Jason Schreier Narrator: Ray Chase Release Date: May 2021

From the bestselling author of Blood, Sweat, and Pixels comes the next definitive, behind-the-scenes account of the video game industry: how some of the past decade's most renowned studios fell apart-and the stories, both triumphant and tragic, of what happened next. Jason Schreier's groundbreaking reporting has earned him a place among the preeminent investigative journalists covering the world of video games. In his eagerly anticipated, deeply researched new book, Schreier trains his investigative eye on the volatility of the video game industry and the resilience of the people who work in it. The business of videogames is both a prestige industry and an opaque one. Based on dozens of first-hand interviews that cover the development of landmark games-Bioshock Infinite, Epic Mickey, Dead Space, and more-on to the shocking closures of the studios that made them, Press Reset tells the stories of how real people are affected by game studio shutdowns, and how they recover, move on, or escape the industry entirely. Schreier's insider interviews cover hostile takeovers, abusive bosses, corporate drama, bounced checks, and that one time the Boston Red Sox's Curt Schilling decided he was going to lead a game studio that would take out World of Warcraft. Along the way, he asks pressing questions about why, when the video game industry is more successful than ever, it's become so hard to make a stable living making video games-and whether the business of making games can change before it's too late.

Spend Shift: How the Post-Crisis Values Revolution Is Changing the Way We Buy, Sell, and Live Audiobook

Spend Shift: How the Post-Crisis Values Revolution Is Changing the Way We Buy, Sell, and Live

Author: John Gerzema, Michael D'antonio, Philip Kotler Narrator: Ray Chase Release Date: July 2020

How we, consumers, responded to the 2008 recession and continue to respond to its aftermath is the crux of much speculation. Will we remain 'frugal' or will we go back to our spending ways? What about this economic crisis has changed the way we live and how will it affect America's future? After decades of unfettered indulgence, Americans are spent. We over-consumed--financed with debt--which has overleveraged our country and erased 13 trillion of consumer wealth and nearly 45% in America's equities and housing values. In the process, we have decimated trust in our financial system, government, and business. In SPEND SHIFT, John Gerzema, Chief Insights Officer at Young how we are moving from mindless to mindful consumption; and how we are opting for better goods and services, rather than just 'more.' As a consequence, companies are presented with an extraordinary opportunity to revolutionize their models to reconnect with the new, unwound consumer. Businesses that adapt to these new consumer behaviors will drive business that scale reputation, not debt, and that will expand profit margins by delivering both 'value' and 'values.' Through insight, social data, and in depth observation, SPEND SHIFT analyzes the changing American consumer psyche, documents the five shifting values and consumer behaviors that are remaking America, and explains what it means to businesses and leaders. This will be a must-read for anyone interested in how consumerism is changing and how to understand and connect with consumer during and after the recession.

The First Stone Audiobook

The First Stone

Author: Carsten Jensen Narrator: Ray Chase Release Date: September 2019

From the award-winning author of We, the Drowned comes a brutal, unflinching, and bestselling epic novel of a platoon of soldiers descending into the insanity of the war in Afghanistan. Dispatched to fight the Taliban as part of the NATO forces, the soldiers of the Third Platoon arrive in a desert hell intent on testing their courage and endurance. Among them are the charismatic platoon leader Schrøder, a former games designer fascinated by the imaginative potential of war; Colonel Steffensen, whose negotiating tactics will have deadly consequences; Sidekick, the LifeLogger whose online “war memorial” will blur into horror; and the hardened but vulnerable Hannah, who must bury her womanhood—or sacrifice her soul. Confronted by a betrayal that no military training could prepare them for, the soldiers must embark on a desperate mission to track down an enemy whose methods are as murderous as they are unfathomable. As the hunters become the hunted, the mission turns into a depraved, hallucinatory voyage into an Afghanistan they never knew existed. With the Third Platoon’s most fundamental notions of good and evil called into question, survival becomes their only mission. An explicitly brutal portrait of battle told with the propulsion of a harrowing psychological thriller, The First Stone is a stunning and epic depiction of comradeship, humanity, and the bestial realities of a conflict without end.

Blood, Sweat, and Pixels: The Triumphant, Turbulent Stories Behind How Video Games Are Made Audiobook

Blood, Sweat, and Pixels: The Triumphant, Turbulent Stories Behind How Video Games Are Made

Author: Jason Schreier Narrator: Ray Chase Release Date: September 2017

Developing video games-hero's journey or fool's errand? The creative and technical logistics that go into building today's hottest games can be more harrowing and complex than the games themselves, often seeming like an endless maze or a bottomless abyss. In Blood, Sweat, and Pixels, Jason Schreier takes listeners on a fascinating odyssey behind the scenes of video game development, where the creator may be a team of 600 overworked underdogs or a solitary geek genius. Exploring the artistic challenges, technical impossibilities, marketplace demands, and Donkey Kong-sized monkey wrenches thrown into the works by corporate, Blood, Sweat, and Pixels reveals how bringing any game to completion is more than Sisyphean-it's nothing short of miraculous. Taking some of the most popular, bestselling recent games, Schreier immerses listeners in the hellfire of the development process, whether it's RPG studio Bioware's challenge to beat an impossible schedule and overcome countless technical nightmares to build Dragon Age: Inquisition; indie developer Eric Barone's single-handed efforts to grow country-life RPG Stardew Valley from one man's vision into a multi-million-dollar franchise; or Bungie spinning out from their corporate overlords at Microsoft to create Destiny, a brand new universe that they hoped would become as iconic as Star Wars and Lord of the Rings-even as it nearly ripped their studio apart. Documenting the round-the-clock crunches, buggy-eyed burnout, and last-minute saves, Blood, Sweat, and Pixels is a journey through development hell-and ultimately a tribute to the dedicated diehards and unsung heroes who scale mountains of obstacles in their quests to create the best games imaginable.

After James Audiobook

After James

Author: Michael Helm Narrator: Amy McFadden, Cassandra Campbell, Ray Chase Release Date: September 2016

For fans of Joshua Cohen and Ben Lerner, After James captures the dystopian strangeness of our current world. A neuroscientist walks out of her life and isolates herself in the woods, intending to blow the whistle on a pharmaceutical company and its creativity drug gone wrong. A recently orphaned graduate school dropout is hired as a "literary detective" to decode the work of a mysterious Internet poet who writes about disappearances and murders with an inexplicably precise knowledge of private details. And a virologist discovers her identity has been stolen by a conceptual artist in whose stories someone always goes missing. Ali, James, and Celia exist in worlds where implausibilities that once belonged to science fiction, ancient superstition, or dystopian visions are real or impending. Set in great cities, remote regions, and deadly borderlands, Michael Helm's groundbreaking novel, After James, is told in three parts, each gesturing toward a different fiction genre: the gothic horror, the detective novel, and the apocalyptic. Science and art become characters, and secrets form, hidden in the codes of genetic sequences, poems, and the patterns of political violence. Part to part, elements repeat?otherworldly weather, disturbing artwork, buried corpses?and amid these echoes, a larger mystery arises, one that joins artifice to nature and fiction to reality, delivering us into the troubling wonder of the present world. "Michael Helm brings his acute, soulful intelligence to bear on the question of how we live now. He powerfully evokes the isolation embedded in our relentless hyper-connectedness...He shows us the poignancy in our human need to make sense and the distortions that come from our endless desire for answers."-Dana Spiotta, National Book Award-nominated author
