A Darkness More Than Night: Booktrack Edition Audiobook

A Darkness More Than Night: Booktrack Edition

Author: Michael Connelly Narrator: Richard Davidson, Richard M. Davidson Release Date: August 2017

A Darkness More Than Night: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!* LAPD Detective Harry Bosch crosses paths with FBI profiler Terry McCaleb in the most dangerous investigation of their lives. Harry Bosch is up to his neck in a case that has transfixed all of celebrity-mad Los Angeles: a movie director is charged with murdering an actress during sex, and then staging her death to make it look like a suicide. Bosch is both the arresting officer and the star witness in a trial that has brought the Hollywood media pack out in full-throated frenzy. Meanwhile, Terry McCaleb is enjoying an idyllic retirement on Catalina Island when a visit from an old colleague brings his former world rushing back. It's a murder, the unreadable kind of murder he specialized in solving back in his FBI days. The investigation has stalled, and the sheriff's office is asking McCaleb to take a quick look at the murder book to see if he turns up something they've missed. McCaleb's first reading of the crime scene leads him to look for a methodical killer with a taste for rituals and revenge. As his quick look accelerates into a full-sprint investigation, the two crimes - his murdered loner and Bosch's movie director - begin to overlap strangely. With one unsettling revelation after another, they merge, becoming one impossible, terrifying case, involving almost inconceivable calculation. McCaleb believes he has unmasked the most frightening killer ever to cross his sights. But his investigation tangles with Bosch's lines, and the two men find themselves at odds in the most dangerous investigation of their lives. *Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration so that listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

Davidson's conversational style perfectly matches Coach K's relaxed tone.

The Neuroscience of Compassion Audiobook

The Neuroscience of Compassion

Author: Richard Davidson, Richard M. Davidson Narrator: Richard Davidson, Richard M. Davidson Release Date: July 2015

Discuss what the tools of modern neuroscience have revealed about the brains of people who spent years cultivating well-being and qualities of mind that promote a positive outlook. Utilize the tools of modern neuroscience along with the wisdom of Buddhism to study kindness and compassion--how spirituality meets science through the new field of contemplative neuroscience. In 1992, the neuroscientist Richard Davidson got a challenge from the Dalai Lama. By that point, he'd spent his career asking why people respond to, in his words, "life's slings and arrows" in different ways. Why are some people more resilient than others in the face of tragedy? And is resilience something you can gain through practice? The Dalai Lama had a different question for Davidson when he visited the Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader at his residence in Dharamsala, India. "He said: 'You've been using the tools of modern neuroscience to study depression, and anxiety, and fear. Why can't you use those same tools to study kindness and compassion?' ... I did not have a very good answer. I said it was hard." The Dalai Lama was interested in what the tools of modern neuroscience could reveal about the brains of people who spent years, in Davidson's words, "cultivating well-being ... cultivating qualities of the mind which promote a positive outlook." The result was that, not long afterward, Davidson brought a series of Buddhist monks into his lab and strapped electrodes to their heads or treated them to a few hours in an MRI machine. "The best way to activate positive-emotion circuits in the brain is through generosity," Davidson, who founded the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds at University of Wisconsin, Madison, said in a talk at the Aspen Ideas Festival. "This is really a kind of exciting neuroscientific finding because there are pearls of wisdom in the contemplative tradition-the Dalai Lama frequently talks about this-that the best way for us to be happy is to be generous to others. And in fact the scientific evidence is in many ways bearing this out, and showing that there are systematic changes in the brain that are associated with acts of generosity."

The Mind's Eye Audiobook

The Mind's Eye

Author: Oliver Sacks Narrator: Oliver Sacks, Richard Davidson Release Date: October 2010

In The Minds Eye, Oliver Sacks tells the stories of people who are able to navigate the world and communicate with others despite losing what many of us consider indispensable senses and abilities: the power of speech, the capacity to recognize faces, the sense of three-dimensional space, the ability to read, the sense of sight. For all of these people, the challenge is to adapt to a radically new way of being in the world. There is Lilian, a concert pianist who becomes unable to read music and is eventually unable even to recognize everyday objects, and Sue, a neurobiologist who has never seen in three dimensions, until she suddenly acquires stereoscopic vision in her fifties. There is Pat, who reinvents herself as a loving grandmother and active member of her community, despite the fact that she has aphasia and cannot utter a sentence, and Howard, a prolific novelist who must find a way to continue his life as a writer even after a stroke destroys his ability to read. And there is Dr. Sacks himself, who tells the story of his own eye cancer and the bizarre and disconcerting effects of losing vision to one side. Sacks explores some very strange paradoxes, people who can see perfectly well but cannot recognize their own children, and blind people who become hyper-visual or who navigate by tongue vision. He also considers more fundamental questions: How do we see? How do we think? How important is internal imagery, or vision, for that matter? Why is it that, although writing is only five thousand years old, humans have a universal, seemingly innate, potential for reading? The Minds Eye is a testament to the complexity of vision and the brain and to the power of creativity and adaptation. And it provides a whole new perspective on the power of language and communication, as we try to imagine what it is to see with another persons eyes, or another persons mind.From the Hardcover edition.

The War Lovers

Author: Evan Thomas Narrator: Richard Davidson, Richard M. Davidson Release Date: April 2010

On February 15, 1898, the USS Maine exploded in the Havana Harbor. Although there was no evidence that the Spanish were responsible, yellow newspapers such as William Randolph Hearst's New York Journal whipped Americans into frenzy by claiming that Spain's "secret infernal machine" had destroyed the battleship. Soon after, the blandly handsome and easily influenced President McKinley declared war, sending troops not only to Cuba but also to the Philippines, Spain's sprawling colony on the other side of the world. ...

Quantrill's War: The Life and Times of William Clarke Quantrill Audiobook

Quantrill's War: The Life and Times of William Clarke Quantrill

Author: Duane Schultz Narrator: Richard Davidson Release Date: February 2010

Award-winning novelist and historian, Duane Schultz, dramatically recreates the treachery of Civil War "Colonel" William Clarke Quantrill's life and the riveting climax of his infamous raid on Lawrence, Kansas. From letters and diaries, Schultz skillfully weaves together this exciting, dark side of Quantrill-a man who was part warrior, part villain. At first, William Clarke Quantrill conveniently sided with whomever was the strongest at the time-abolitionists or slavery supporters-but eventually, he settled on backing the Confederacy. With his charismatic personality, he attracted a motley band of idealists and renegades for his guerilla army. Quantrill longed to be an officer, but when the Confederacy refused to commission him because of his tactics of murdering for pleasure and looting for gain, he simply took the title of colonel and later, captain. Narrator Richard M. Davidson takes the listener to the battlefields, bringing to life the people, sights, and sounds of the Civil War. The combination of Schultz's masterful descriptions and Davidson's sense of timing makes Quantrill's history as exciting as today's headlines.
