Slam-Dunk Success: Leading from Every Position on Life's Court Audiobook

Slam-Dunk Success: Leading from Every Position on Life's Court

Author: Byron Scott, Charlie Norris, Jon Warech Narrator: Byron Scott, Charlie Norris, S Release Date: April 2018

Great leadership begins with great understanding. No one knows that better than basketball legend Byron Scott and lifelong business executive Charlie Norris who, respectively, won NBA championships and resurrected multimillion-dollar corporations by being team players no matter their position. Whether it's on the basketball court, in the boardroom, or in everyday life, getting to the heads and hearts of people is paramount to getting the most out of them. In SLAM-DUNK SUCCESS, Scott and Norris share their parallel formulas for victory and prove that, with the right tools, winning can happen anywhere. As a player Scott won three championships with the Los Angeles Lakers, and as coach he twice took the New Jersey Nets to the NBA Finals and won Coach of the Year honors with the New Orleans Hornets. With every team his role changed, but his winning mentality never faltered. As CEO of McKesson Water, Charlie Norris turned a $200 million-dollar company into a company that sold ten years later for $1.1 billion dollars and, as chairman of the board of Freshpet, he helped lead the start-up from early stage testing to become a publicly traded company with a market value of over $350 million. In each job, he led with the same amount of conviction and care. Their book-which grew from their unlikely friendship and realization that two men from completely different backgrounds could have the same leadership ideals-breaks down their keys to motivating others, negotiating deals, and creating prosperity from scratch. Their blueprint includes lessons on listening, turning failure into learning opportunities, and delegating authority with extreme precision. Leadership is a full-time job and Byron Scott and Charlie Norris's story is a guidebook for leaders in all fields and in any position looking to better both their careers and lives. Champions are formed when people make those around them better and this book shows how you can be a winner every day.

The Authorized Roy Orbison: The Authorized Biography Audiobook

The Authorized Roy Orbison: The Authorized Biography

For the first time, legendary performer Roy Orbison's story as one of the most beloved rock legends will be revealed through family accounts and records. Roy Orbison is a rock and roll icon almost without peer. He came of age as an artist on the venerable Sun Records label; toured with The Beatles; had massive hits in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s; invented the black-clad, sunglasses-wearing image of the rock star; and reinvented the art of songwriting many times over. He is a member of the Rock & Roll and Songwriters Halls of Fame, a recipient of the Musicians Hall of Fame's inaugural Iconic Riff Award, and the winner of multiple GRAMMY® awards. He is known the world over for hits like "Blue Bayou," "You Got It," and "Oh, Pretty Woman" and was a member of the band that inspired the term "supergroup"-the Traveling Wilburys, with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, and Tom Petty. Despite these and countless other accolades, the story of Roy Orbison's life is virtually unknown to his millions of fans around the world. Now, for the first time ever, the Orbison Estate, headed by Roy's sons, Wesley, Roy Jr., and Alex Orbison, has set out to set the record straight. The Authorized Roy Orbison tells the epic tale of a West Texas boy, drawn to the guitar at age six, whose monumental global career successes were matched at nearly every turn by extraordinary personal tragedies, including the loss of his first wife in a motorcycle accident and his two oldest sons in a fire. It's a story of the intense highs and severe lows that make up the mountain range of Roy Orbison's career; one that touched four decades and ended abruptly at perhaps its highest peak, when he passed away at the age of fifty-two on December 6, 1988. Filled with hundreds of photographs, many never before seen, gathered from across the globe and uncovered from deep within the Orbison Vault, The Authorized Roy Orbison shows Roy Orbison as a young child and follows him all the way through to the peak of his stardom and up to his tragic end. Wesley, Roy Jr., and Alex Orbison-Roy's Boys-have left no stone unturned in order to illustrate the people, places, things, and events that forged their father, the man behind those famous sunglasses. **Contact Customer Service for Additional Material**

Why Suffering?: Finding Meaning and Comfort When Life Doesn't Make Sense Audiobook

Why Suffering?: Finding Meaning and Comfort When Life Doesn't Make Sense

Author: Ravi Zacharias, Vince Vitale Narrator: Ravi Zacharias, S, Vince Vitale Release Date: October 2014

Why would a loving and powerful God allow so much pain and suffering? In WHY SUFFERING? Ravi Zacharias and Vince Vitale carefully walk you through a variety of responses that considered together provide a clear, comprehensive, and convincing answer. Responses like: -Where there is the possibility of love, there has to be the reality of freedom, and therefore the possibility of pain. -Wishing God had made a different world is to wish yourself out of existence. -The cross is the key to a compelling and rational explanation for trusting in God in the face of suffering. -In comparison with other world religions, the Christian response is highly distinctive. -The reality of evil only makes sense in light of the reality of divine goodness. -Relational knowledge about God takes the argument beyond reason to the presence of God amidst suffering. -God's decision to allow temporal suffering is understandable when viewed from an eternal perspective. -Divine goodness shows how to conquer not in spite of, but even through suffering. Here is a book written with great respect for the complexity of the issue, recognizing that some who read it will be in the trenches of deep suffering themselves and others questioning the very existence of a loving God. WHY SUFFERING? provides an answer to the problem of pain and suffering with emotional sensitivity and intellectual integrity.

Simply put... HOLLYWOOD SAID NO!

LeaderShift: A Call for Americans to Finally Stand Up and Lead

Author: Oliver DeMille, Orrin Woodward Narrator: Oliver DeMille, Orrin Woodward, S Release Date: April 2013

A most provocative business parable for our troubled times, LeaderShift is the story of how David Mersher, the successful CEO of IndyTech, sets out to discover why the United States is losing its leadership edge and what he can do to turn things around and make America truly great again.

Pot Psychology's How to Be: Lowbrow Advice from High People Audiobook

Pot Psychology's How to Be: Lowbrow Advice from High People

Author: Rich Juzwiak, Tracie Egan Morrissey Narrator: Rich Juzwiak, S, Tracie Egan Morrissey Release Date: November 2012

Nobody needs advice, but everybody wants it. Conversely, everybody wants to give advice but we need to. It's in our blood...because we're stoned. That's the point. And what better way to legitimize two stoned people's need to babble advice than with a book? Allow us to introduce ourselves: We're Tracie and Rich. We go way back. We met as teenagers in 1998, during our freshman year at NYU. We were at a dorm party, where lesbians and gay men were making out. Tracie had short hair and glasses; Rich approached and asked, "Do you like Ani DiFranco?" That was not a come-on. We didn't kiss (and Tracie is not a lesbian, anyway), but we did shotgun a joint. From there, a friendship was born. Flash forward 12 years. We host an Internet video series in which we answer viewer-submitted questions, solving their problems with the help of an herbal remedy. Basically we get stoned and tell people how to live their lives. We give our two cents (or is that 420 sense?) on all of life's non-problems from party etiquette, problems in the workplace, what religion to be, to whether or not your boyfriend/girlfriend/parent/friend/teacher/pet is gay. At this point, we want to get higher, and take things to the next level. We've already gotten inside people's heads-now we want to get in their pants. With a pocket guide, pervert. It is intended to be a reference guide for people to carry through life. Because you never know when life will present a non-problem outside of a wifi hot zone. (And that's a non-problem solved right there.) ***Please contact Member Services for additional documents***
