New York's Finest: Stories of the NYPD and the Hero Cops Who Saved the City Audiobook

New York's Finest: Stories of the NYPD and the Hero Cops Who Saved the City

Author: Michael Daly Narrator: Michael Daly, P.J. Ochlan Release Date: December 2021

The gritty, true blue story of two remarkable cops and an equally extraordinary nurse who provided the spirit and smarts that transformed Fear City into the safest big city in America. NEW YORK'S FINEST is the story of a city's transformation through the tireless efforts of Detective Steven McDonald, Nurse Justiniano, Jack Maple, and a host of hero cops-including the great niece of Jazz Age great Josephine Baker-the finest of The Finest. The son and grandson of cops, Officer McDonald was shot and paralyzed from the neck down while on patrol in 1986. The doctors said that if he did survive, he would be better off dead. It was then he came under the care of one Nurse Nina Justiniano. Where the teenage gunman was produced by the worst of Harlem's social ills, she personified its many graces, rescuing Steven from despair and urging him to transcend hate and bitterness. McDonald was then promoted to detective at the urging of NYPD Deputy Commissioner Jack Maple, a postal worker's son who sported a bow tie, Homburg hat, and two-tone shoes as he implemented transformative crime-fighting strategies to deter violent subway robberies. Coming up in the force, Maple had been routinely mocked for imagining the impossible: that Times Square would one day be a destination for families and tourists. Now, resentments and tensions are mounting in the same neighborhoods that most benefited from the careful consideration of officers like McDonald and Maple. But as NEW YORK'S FINEST illustrates, their legacies, and those of people like Nurse Justiniano, may well rescue New York City from its present state of unrest and struggle in the wake of protests and the pandemic.

The Beatles, the Bible, and Bodega Bay: My Long and Winding Road

Author: Ken Mansfield Narrator: Gabe Wicks Release Date: December 2021

The Beatles, the Bible and Bodega Bay presents two portraits: the young man in London on top of the Apple building (and on top of the world!) as he watches the Beatles perform for the last time, and the older man on a remote Sonoma beach on his knees looking out to sea and into the heart of his Creator. The former Capital Records executive shares his reflections and commentary on the Fab Four, through the lens of his current Christian faith, in a personal and powerful memoir of God's transforming love.. *Because of Ken's personal relationship, respect and loyalty to Apple and the Beatles he sought all necessary official and personal approvals from Capitol, Apple, and each of the Beatles including Yoko on John's behalf. At the time of the original release of The Beatles, The Bible and Bodega Bay he was informed that outside of their own Anthology that this was the only book approved by them. Once again, out of that same respect there have been no changes or updates-the content before you is exactly the same as the original book. These are the thoughts and events exactly as they were happening then…a unique insider's look at a time that will never exist again.

Cast A Diva: The Hidden Life of Maria Callas Audiobook

Cast A Diva: The Hidden Life of Maria Callas

Author: Lyndsy Spence Narrator: Emily Ellet Release Date: December 2021

Maria Callas (1923-1977) was the greatest opera diva of all time with a career that remains unmatched by any prima donna. Much of her life was overshadowed by her fiery relationship with Aristotle Onassis, who broke her heart when he left her for Jacqueline Kennedy, and her reputation was marred by legendary tantrums on and off the stage. However, little is known about Callas the woman; a girl who was brought up between New York and Greece, and who was forced to sing by her emotionally abusive mother. She left her family behind in Greece for an international career and was feted by royalty and Hollywood stars. A self-made woman, she fought sexism to rise to the top, but there was one thing she wanted but could not have: a happy private life. Fame provided celebrity and riches, but her last days were spent as a recluse in her Paris apartment, listening to her old recordings and addicted to prescription drugs. In Cast a Diva, bestselling author Lyndsy Spence reveals the incredible story of a woman who was a true feminist icon.

Starstruck: My Unlikely Road to Hollywood Audiobook

Starstruck: My Unlikely Road to Hollywood

Author: Leonard Maltin Narrator: Leonard Maltin Release Date: December 2021

Hollywood historian and film reviewer Leonard Maltin invites listeners to pull up a chair as he tells stories, many of them hilarious, from fifty-plus years of interacting with legendary movie stars, writers, directors, producers, and cartoonists. Maltin grew up in the first decade of television, immersing himself in TV programs and the 1930s and '40s movies hitting the small screen. His fan letters to admired performers led to unexpected correspondences, then to interviews and the publication of his own fan magazine. Maltin's career as a freelance writer and New York Times bestselling author, as well as his thirty-year run on Entertainment Tonight, gave him access to Katharine Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Sean Connery, Shirley Temple, and Jimmy Stewart, among hundreds of other Golden Age stars, his interviews cutting through the Hollywood veneer and revealing the human behind each legend. Starstruck also offers a fascinating glimpse inside the Disney empire, and Maltin's tenure teaching USC's popular film course reveals insights into moviemaking along with access to past, current, and future stars of film, such as George Lucas, Kevin Feige, Quentin Tarantino, and Guillermo del Toro.

Die Lebensgeschichte eines amerikanischen Sklaven Audiobook

Die Lebensgeschichte eines amerikanischen Sklaven

Author: Fredrick Douglass Narrator: Gerrit Stratmann Release Date: December 2021

Diese einzigartige und eindrückliche biographische Beschreibung der Lebensumstände in der Sklaverei wurde im Jahr 1845 von Fredrick Douglass, einem der herausragenden Protagonisten der amerikanischen Anti-Sklaverei-Bewegung, unter dem Titel „Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave“ veröffentlich. Aus der englischen Sprache übersetzt von Elke Will. Frederick Douglass wurde als Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey in der Nähe von Easton in Talbot County, Maryland, als Sklave geboren. Als kleiner Junge wurde er als Hausdiener nach Baltimore geschickt, wo er mit Hilfe der Frau seines Herrn das Lesen und Schreiben erlernte. 1838 entkam er der Sklaverei und ging nach New York City, wo er Anna Murray heiratete, eine freie farbige Frau, die er in Baltimore kennengelernt hatte. Bald darauf änderte er seinen Namen in Frederick Douglass. Im Jahr 1841 sprach er auf einem Kongress der Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society in Nantucket und beeindruckte die Anwesenden so sehr, dass sie ihn sofort als Agenten anstellten. Er war ein so beeindruckender Redner, dass zahlreiche Personen bezweifelten, dass er jemals ein Sklave gewesen sein könne, und so entschloss er sich seine Lebensgeschichte niederzuschreiben.

Cambiar de idea (Caballo de Troya 2019, 2) Audiobook

Cambiar de idea (Caballo de Troya 2019, 2)

Author: Aixa De La Cruz Narrator: Paula Iwasaki Release Date: December 2021

Premio Euskadi de Literatura en castellano 2020 Aixa de la Cruz firma una adictiva y brutal crónica en primera persona sobre su paso a la treintena. Cambiar de idea es un giro radical en la escritura de su autora, un punto de inflexión idóneo para reflexionar sobre el paso a la edad adulta. ** Premio Euskadi de Literatura en castellano ** Premio Librotea Tapado 2020 ** Finalista Premio Dulce Chacón 2020 «He tardado diez años de lecturas, y fiestas, y conversaciones con las mejores mentes de mi época en entender que el avatar de hombre es el traje nuevo del emperador [...]. Mi propio y escasísimo caché como mujer que escribe se ha desmoronado desde que dejé de escribir como los chicos: con voces falsamente neutrales, con personajes que pasan de puntillas por su género y se hermanan desde la hiperviolencia y las parafilias. Eso es lo que los editores que no publican a mujeres quieren que escribamos las mujeres. Los editores que no publican a mujeres andan locos por publicar a mujeres que escriban de una determinada manera, para refrendar que la subjetividad masculina es la subjetividad universal. Sus autores pueden ser sentimentales e intimistas, pero sus autoras siempre estarán estancadas en la impostura de lo masculino.» A punto de cumplir los treinta, Aixa de la Cruz pone en marcha la escritura de unas memorias que recorren algunos de los momentos más significativos de su vida: desde el día en que una de sus mejores amigas sufre un fatídico accidente de coche hasta el divorciode la autora;desde las consecuencias de escribir una tesis doctoral hasta sus relaciones sexuales con otras mujeres; desde una infancia en la que maduró sin un «biopadre» hasta su descubrimiento del feminismo. Cambiar de idea ofrece una escritura hipnótica que va mucho más allá de la simple exposición de la primera persona: el relato del yo sirve para vehicular agudas reflexiones sobre diferentes temas de calado social y para desplegar un estilo literario rico y combativo, que posiciona a Aixa de la Cruz no ya como una de las mejores narradoras de su generación, sinotambién -y sobre todo- como una pensadora brillante. La crítica ha dicho... «Un libro lúcido, lleno de fuerza y rabia, doloroso en su sinceridad.» Laura Freixas, La Vanguardia « Cambiar de idea es la obra de una gran narradora que además es una gran pensadora. En tiempos en los que el lector siempre tiene razón, Aixade la Cruz nos saca de nuestras casillas porque ella misma lleva tiempo fuera. Su libro es la mejor demostración de que no hace falta estar de acuerdo con la teoría para estarlo con la práctica.» Javier Rodríguez Marcos, El País «Funciona todo, brilla, te lleva hasta el final como un tren en marcha que no se para.» Elizabeth Duval «De lo mejor que he leído de feminismo en primera persona. Quizás exagero, pero yo creo que está al nivel de Teoría King Kong.» Ernesto Castro «El diálogo metaliterario es, de por sí, formalmente fascinante.» Adrián Véitez, Zenda «Un recorrido personal de distintas situaciones vitales para terminar hablando de cómo el feminismo ha llegado a influir en los últimos años.» Europa Press «Una de las voces que más va a dar que hablar.» Rosa Martí, Esquire «Un ensayo memorístico que escuece como la sal en una herida mal cerrada.» Mónica Zas Marcos, El Diario «Un brillante ensayo feminista para el perdón de los pecados o una oración millennial que nos invita a celebrar la vida como conflicto y como cambio.» Begoña Méndez, El Cultural

Tiempo de magos: La gran década de la filosofía: 1919-1929 Audiobook

Tiempo de magos: La gran década de la filosofía: 1919-1929

Author: Wolfram Eilenberger Narrator: Elsa Veiga Release Date: December 2021

La historia de cómo cuatro genios revolucionaron la filosofía y cambiaron nuestra forma de entender el mundo. «Un libro que no tendrá parangón en mucho tiempo. Engancha como un thriller y ayuda más a la comprensión de nuestro presente que ningún estudio sociológico.» Micha Brumlik, Die Tageszeitung Estamos en 1919. La guerra acaba de terminar. «El doctor Benjamin huye de su padre, el subteniente Wittgenstein comete un suicidio económico, el profesor auxiliar Heidegger abandona la fe y monsieur Cassirer trabaja en el tranvía para inspirarse.» Comienza una década de creatividad excepcional que cambiará para siempre el rumbo de las ideas en Europa. Los años veinte del siglo XX en Alemania dieron forma a nuestro pensamiento contemporáneo, y son el verdadero origen de nuestra moderna relación con el mundo. Entenderlos significa, de alguna manera, entendernos. Ludwig Wittgenstein, Walter Benjamin, Ernst Cassirer y Martin Heidegger, cuatro gigantes de todos los tiempos, lideraron esta revolución y elevaron el alemán a lengua del espíritu. Fue en una Alemania dividida entre las ganas de vivir y el abismo de la crisis económica, entre la lujuria de las noches berlinesas, las conspiraciones de la República de Weimar y la amenaza del nacionalsocialismo, donde encontraron su voz y su estilo. En Tiempo de magos, la vida cotidiana y los dilemas metafísicos son parte de la misma historia. Con un espléndido estilo narrativo, Eilenberger traza conexiones entre los modos de vida y las teorías de estos cuatro filósofos seductores y brillantes, guiados por la necesidad de responder a las preguntas clave de la historia del pensamiento. Sus respuestas iluminan también los peligrosos tiempos que vivimos hoy. ** Finalista al mejor libro de ensayo 2019 concedido por la Asociación de Librerías de Madrid La crítica ha dicho: «Eilenberger narra los destinos entrelazados de cuatro de los pensadores más influyentes del siglo XX. Repleto de historias personales -y de erudición-, este libro nos enseña cómo lidiar con un momento de crisis, habilidad imprescindible que nunca hemos dejado de necesitar.» Anne Applebaum, premio Pulitzer y autora de Gulag, Hambruna roja y El telón de acero «Un recorrido fascinante por las vidas y el pensamiento de los filósofos más desafiantes del siglo XX: Benjamin, Cassirer, Wittgenstein y Heidegger. Un valioso libro lleno de historias e ideas entrelazadas con sutileza y agilidad.» Sarah Bakewell, autora de En el café de los existencialistas «Un tour de force. Hermosamente escrita, recuerda una buena novela por lo mucho que cuesta dejarla. Pero es más que una historia de filosofía de primera categoría: al unir las obras y las vidas de estos cuatro filósofos y establecer conexiones inesperadas entre sus más profundas preocupaciones, Eilenberger traza nuevos caminos para la propia filosofía. Un logro extraordinario.» Susan Neiman, autora de El Mal en el Pensamiento Moderno «Cuando el suelo tiembla bajo nuestros pies nos da por recordar. Sobre todo, qué hicimos la última vez que sucedió. Por eso se lee tan bien Tiempo de magos.» Darío Prieto, El Mundo (La esfera de papel) «De Cambridge a Davos, de Berlín a París, Tiempo de magos ofrece una narrativa novedosa, extremadamente tangible, de una época que dio forma a nuestro pensamiento como ninguna otra.» Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht «Aún quedan algunos libros que nos devuelven por unos días la fascinación de antaño. Este es uno de ellos. Si solo te queda dinero para un libro de filosofía, elige este.» Wolfgang Pichler, General-Anzeiger

Albert Einstein: Book Of Quotes (100+ Selected Quotes)

Author: Quotes Station Narrator: Chris Wolff Release Date: December 2021

ALBERT EINSTEIN: BOOK OF QUOTES - ALBERT EINSTEIN: BOOK OF QUOTES Albert Einstein (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist, widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest physicists of all time. Einstein is known for developing the theory of relativity, but he also made important contributions to the development of the theory of quantum mechanics. Relativity and quantum mechanics are together the two pillars of modern physics. His mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which arises from relativity theory, has been dubbed 'the world's most famous equation'. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics 'for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect', a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory. His intellectual achievements and originality resulted in 'Einstein' becoming synonymous with 'genius'. - QUOTES SAMPLES “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” — “If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” — “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” — “Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value.” — “Never memorize something that you can look up.” — “Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.” — “Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.”
