Personality Isn't Permanent: Break Free From Self-Limiting Beliefs and Rewrite Your Story Audiobook

Personality Isn't Permanent: Break Free From Self-Limiting Beliefs and Rewrite Your Story

Author: Benjamin Hardy Narrator: Sean Pratt Release Date: June 2020

Psychologist and bestselling author Benjamin Hardy, PhD, debunks the pervasive myths about personality that prevent us from learning-and provides bold strategies for personal transformation   In Personality Isn't Permanent, Dr. Benjamin Hardy draws on psychological research to demolish the popular misconception that personality-a person's consistent attitudes and behaviors-is innate and unchanging. Hardy liberates us from the limiting belief that our "true selves" are to be discovered, and shows how we can intentionally create our desired selves and achieve amazing goals instead. He offers practical, science-based advice to for personal-reinvention, including:          • Why personality tests such as Myers-Briggs and Enneagram are not only psychologically destructive but are no more scientific than horoscopes    • Why you should never be the "former" anything--because defining yourself by your past successes is just as damaging to growth as being haunted by past failures    • How to design your current identity based on your desired future self and make decisions here-and-now through your new identity    • How to reframe traumatic and painful experiences into a fresh narrative supporting your future success    • How to become confident enough to define your own life's purpose    • How to create a network of "empathetic witnesses" who actively encourage you through the highs and lows of extreme growth    • How to enhance your subconscious to overcome addictions and limiting patterns    • How redesign your environment to pull you toward your future, rather than keep you stuck in the past    • How to tap into what psychologists call "pull motivation" by narrowing your focus on a single, definable, and compelling outcome   The book includes true stories of intentional self-transformation-such as Vanessa O'Brien, who quit her corporate job and set the Guinness World Record for a woman climbing the highest peak on every continent in the fastest time; Andre Norman, who became a Harvard fellow after serving a fourteen-year prison sentence; Ken Arlen, who instantly quit smoking by changing his identity narrative; and Hardy himself, who transcended his childhood in a broken home, surrounded by issues of addiction and mental illness, to earn his PhD and build a happy family. Filled with strategies for reframing your past and designing your future, Personality Isn't Permanent is a guide to breaking free from the past and becoming the person you want to be.

Put Your Money Where Your Life Is: How to Invest Locally Using Self-Directed IRAs and Solo 401(k)s Audiobook

Put Your Money Where Your Life Is: How to Invest Locally Using Self-Directed IRAs and Solo 401(k)s

Author: Michael H. Shuman Narrator: Sean Pratt Release Date: June 2020

"As so many Americans feel powerless to confront a financial system designed to serve the few, Shuman offers us real choices: tools that align our lives with our values. That's power. I love this highly readable, timely, surprising book." -Frances Moore Lappé, author of Daring Democracy and Diet for a Small Planet Americans agree on very little these days, but red state conservatives and blue state progressives can agree on one critical point: Wall Street can no longer be trusted. Yet most of us continue to invest our money in the stocks and bonds of Fortune 500 companies, transferring our capital far from where we live and work. Local investing expert Michael Shuman offers another alternative. He shows how we can use two well-established-but rarely used-investment tools to keep our money close and get a return as good as or better than what we'd get investing in distant, indifferent corporations. Shuman explains the nuts and bolts of self-directed IRAs and solo 401(k)s and how they can be combined with other recently legalized local investing tools. He details how to set these accounts up, identify and evaluate a whole range of local investment opportunities, and make sure account holders stay on the right side of the law. While the book is written for people without a lot of investment experience-Shuman explains concepts like "liquidity" and "diversification" in simple terms-even if you're as experienced as Warren Buffett, this book will make you rethink everything you know about investing. With Shuman's expert advice, you can strengthen your investment portfolio and your community, neighborhoods, and schools at the same time!

Age Later: Health Span, Life Span, and the New Science of Longevity Audiobook

Age Later: Health Span, Life Span, and the New Science of Longevity

Author: Nir Barzilai, M.D. Narrator: Sean Pratt Release Date: June 2020

How do some people avoid the slowing down, deteriorating, and weakening that plagues many of their peers decades earlier? Are they just lucky? Or do they know something the rest of us don’t? Is it possible to grow older without getting sicker? What if you could look and feel fifty through your eighties and nineties? Founder of the Institute for Aging Research at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and one of the leading pioneers of longevity research, Dr. Nir Barzilai’s life’s work is tackling the challenges of aging to delay and prevent the onset of all age-related diseases including “the big four”: diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s. One of Dr. Barzilai’s most fascinating studies features volunteers that include 750 SuperAgers—individuals who maintain active lives well into their nineties and even beyond—and, more importantly, who reached that ripe old age never having experienced cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, or cognitive decline. In Age Later, Dr. Barzilai reveals the secrets his team has unlocked about SuperAgers and the scientific discoveries that show we can mimic some of their natural resistance to the aging process. This eye-opening and inspirational audiobook will help you think of aging not as a certainty, but as a phenomenon—like many other diseases and misfortunes—that can be targeted, improved, and even cured. A Macmillan Audio production from St. Martin's Press “In this technical but promising book, Barzilai scrutinizes the lives of centenarians to find the key factors behind their healthy longevity. Readers who enjoy learning the science behind medical theories will be fascinated.” --Booklist “A thoughtful take on aging that should be of interest to all concerned with the overlap of health and aging.” --Library Journal

Stan: The Life of Stan Laurel: Fred Lawrence Guiles Hollywood Collection Audiobook

Stan: The Life of Stan Laurel: Fred Lawrence Guiles Hollywood Collection

Author: Fred Lawrence Guiles Narrator: Sean Pratt Release Date: April 2020

Surprisingly, this is the first full-length biography of the legendary comic who was the creative half of the universally loved duo Laurel and Hardy. Based upon scores of interviews with family and friends (including the intimate diaries of Virginia Ruth Laurel, whom Stan married three times), Stan tells the very human story of Laurel's struggle to survive against difficult odds, personal and professional. From precarious beginnings in vaudeville with Charlie Chaplin, skinny Stan changed his name and rose to enjoy success and universal acclaim with his big-bellied partner Oliver Hardy. Yet, beneath the exterior of the wistful comic whose sense of humor gave pleasure to so many millions was a man beset by financial worries, alcohol, and unhappy personal relationships that encompassed many dalliances and six marriages. This superb biography provides new insight into the supremely talented man behind the screen image and a fascinating panorama of show business in the first half of this century. A supplemental PDF is included with this audiobook.

The Hidden History of the War on Voting: Who Stole Your Vote—and How to Get It Back Audiobook

The Hidden History of the War on Voting: Who Stole Your Vote—and How to Get It Back

Author: Thom Hartmann Narrator: Sean Pratt Release Date: February 2020

In today's America, only a slim majority of people register to vote, and a large percentage of registered voters don't bother to show up: Donald Trump was elected by only 26 percent of eligible voters. Unfortunately, this is not a bug in our system, it's a feature. Thom Hartmann unveils the strategies and tactics that conservative elites in this country have used, from the foundation of the Electoral College to the latest voter ID laws, to protect their interests by preventing "the wrong people"-such as the poor, women, and people of color-from voting while making it more convenient for the wealthy and white. But he also lays out a wide variety of simple, commonsense ways that we the people can fight back and reclaim our right to rule through the ballot box.

On Call in the Arctic: A Doctor's Pursuit of Life, Love, and Miracles in the Alaskan Frontier Audiobook

On Call in the Arctic: A Doctor's Pursuit of Life, Love, and Miracles in the Alaskan Frontier

Author: Thomas J. Sims Narrator: Sean Pratt Release Date: January 2020

Imagine a young doctor, trained in the latest medical knowledge and state-of-the-art equipment, suddenly transported back to one of the world's most isolated and unforgiving environments-Nome, Alaska. That's what happen to Dr. Sims. His plans to become a pediatric surgeon were drastically changed when, on the eve of being drafted into the Army to serve as a M.A.S.H. surgeon in Vietnam, he was offered a commission in the U.S. Public Health for assignment in Anchorage, Alaska, where he was scheduled to act as Chief of Pediatrics at the Alaska Native Medical Center. But life changed, along with his military orders, when he learned he was being transferred from Anchorage to work as the only physician in Nome. There, he had the awesome responsibility of rendering medical care under archaic conditions to the population of this frontier town plus thirteen Eskimo villages in the surrounding Norton Sound area. And he did it alone with little help and support. All the while, he was pegged as both an "outsider" and an employee of the much-derided federal government. In order to do his job, Dr. Sims had to overcome racism, cultural prejudices, and hostility from those who would have liked to see him sent packing. On Call in the Arctic reveals the thrills and the terrors of frontier medicine, showing how Dr. Sims had to rely upon his instincts, improvise, and persevere against all odds in order to help his patients on the icy shores of the Bering Sea.

Revolution of Values: Reclaiming Public Faith for the Common Good Audiobook

Revolution of Values: Reclaiming Public Faith for the Common Good

Author: Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove Narrator: Sean Pratt Release Date: December 2019

The religious Right taught America to misread the Bible. Christians have misused Scripture to consolidate power, stoke fears, and defend against enemies. But people who have been hurt by the attacks of Christian nationalism can help us rediscover God's vision for faith in public life. Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove explores how religious culture wars have misrepresented Christianity at the expense of the poor, and how listening to marginalized communities can help us hear God's call to love and justice in the world. He highlights people on the frontlines of issues ranging from immigration policy and voting rights to women's rights and environmental stewardship. Through these narratives, we encounter a recovery of values that upholds the dignity of all people. Rediscover hope for faithful public witness that serves the common good. Join the revolution.

The Hidden History of the Supreme Court and the Betrayal of America Audiobook

The Hidden History of the Supreme Court and the Betrayal of America

Author: Thom Hartmann Narrator: Sean Pratt Release Date: October 2019

Thom Hartmann, the most popular progressive radio host in America and a New York Times bestselling author, explains how the Supreme Court has spilled beyond its Constitutional powers and how we the people should take that power back. Taking his typically in-depth, historically informed view, Thom Hartmann asks, What if the Supreme Court didn't have the power to strike down laws? According to the Constitution, it doesn't. From the founding of the republic until 1803, the Supreme Court was the final court of appeals, as it was always meant to be. So where did the concept of judicial review start? As so much of modern American history, it began with the battle between the Federalists and Anti-Federalists, and with Marbury v. Madison. Hartmann argues it is not the role of the Supreme Court to decide what the law is but rather the duty of the people themselves. He lays out the history of the Supreme Court of the United States, since Alexander Hamilton's defense to modern-day debates, with key examples of cases where the Supreme Court overstepped its constitutional powers. The ultimate remedy to the Supreme Court's abuse of power is with the people--the ultimate arbiter of the law--using the ballot box. America does not belong to the kings and queens; it belongs to the people.
