You Don't Own Me: How Mattel v. MGA Entertainment Exposed Barbie's Dark Side Audiobook

You Don't Own Me: How Mattel v. MGA Entertainment Exposed Barbie's Dark Side

Author: Orly Lobel Narrator: Karen White Release Date: April 2018

When Carter Bryant began designing what would become the billion-dollar line of Bratz dolls, he was taking time off from his job at Mattel, where he designed outfits for Barbie. Later, back at Mattel, he sold his concept for Bratz to rival company MGA. Law professor Orly Lobel reveals the colorful story behind the ensuing decade-long court battle. This entertaining and provocative work pits audacious MGA against behemoth Mattel, shows how an idea turns into a product, and explores the two different versions of womanhood, represented by traditional all-American Barbie and her defiant, anti-establishment rival-the only doll to come close to outselling her. In an era when workers may be asked to sign contracts granting their employers the rights to and income resulting from their ideas-whether conceived during work hours or on their own time-Lobel's deeply researched story is a riveting and thought-provoking contribution to the contentious debate over creativity and intellectual property.

Work Like a Woman: A Manifesto For Change Audiobook

Work Like a Woman: A Manifesto For Change

Author: Mary Portas Narrator: Mary Portas Release Date: November 2018

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Work Like a Woman written and read by Mary Portas. By most people's standards I would say I've had a pretty good career. I've reached the top of the 'ladder' and been lucky enough to have had a damned good life. But at what cost? At the cost of who I truly was. I played the business game for years, where the rules were set by men for men. I was tough and aggressive. I put in long hours, was competitive and resilient. But I suppressed my natural energy, sensitivity and instinct. I worked like this until I couldn't any more. And then I changed. My team and I rebuilt my business on the values that matter: collaboration, empathy, instinct and trust. Values not always associated with leadership or winning, but which have made every one of us feel good. Now I want to share what I've learned through my own experiences, and am still learning, to change the way you work so that female energy and power will be seen as the most valuable currency in today's new world of work. It's time to create an unstoppable force for change. A feminine force. It's time to #WorkLikeAWoman.

Women and Leadership Audiobook

Women and Leadership

Author: Deborah L. Rhode Narrator: Jo Anna Perrin Release Date: March 2019

In Women and Leadership, the eminent legal scholar Deborah L. Rhode focuses on women's underrepresentation in leadership roles and asks why it persists and what we can do about it. Although organizations generally stand to gain from increasing gender equity in leadership, women's underrepresentation is persistent and pervasive. Rhode explores the reasons, including women's family roles, unconscious gender bias, and exclusion from professional development networks. She stresses that we cannot address the problem at the individual level; instead, she argues that we need broad-based strategies that address the deep-seated structural and cultural conditions facing women. She surveys a range of professions in politics, management, law, and academia and draws from a survey of prominent women to develop solutions that can successfully chip away at the imbalance. These include developing robust women-to-women networks, enacting laws and policies that address work/life imbalances, and training programs that start at an earlier age. Rhode's clear exploration of the leadership gap and her compelling policy prescriptions will make this an essential book for anyone interested in leveling the playing field for women leaders in America.

Wolf Boys: Two American Teenagers and Mexico's Most Dangerous Drug Cartel Audiobook

Wolf Boys: Two American Teenagers and Mexico's Most Dangerous Drug Cartel

Author: Dan Slater Narrator: Pete Simonelli Release Date: September 2016

The story of two American teens recruited as killers for a Mexican cartel, and their pursuit by a Mexican-American detective who realizes the War on Drugs is unwinnable. What's it like to be an employee of a global drug-trafficking organization? And how does a 15-year-old American boy go from star quarterback to trained assassin, surging up the cartel corporate ladder? At first glance, Gabriel Cardona is the poster boy American teenager: great athlete, bright, handsome, and charismatic. But the streets of his border town of Laredo, Texas, are poor and dangerous, and it isn't long before Gabriel abandons his promising future for the allure of the Zetas, a drug cartel with roots in the Mexican military. His younger friend Bart, as well as others from Gabriel's childhood, join him in working for the Zetas, boosting cars and smuggling drugs, eventually catching the eye of the cartel's leadership. Meanwhile, Mexican-born Detective Robert Garcia has worked hard all his life and is now struggling to raise his family in America. As violence spills over the border, Detective Garcia's pursuit of the boys, and their cartel leaders, puts him face to face with the urgent consequences of a war he sees as unwinnable. In Wolf Boys Dan Slater shares their stories, taking us from the Sierra Madre mountaintops to the dusty, dark alleys of Laredo, Texas, on a harrowing, often brutal journey into the heart of the Mexican drug trade. Gabriel's evolution from good-natured teenager into a feared assassin is as inevitable as Garcia's slow realization of the futile nature of his work. A nonfiction thriller, Wolf Boys depicts more than just Gabriel, Bart, and the officers who took them down. It shows, through vivid detail and rich, often moving, narrative, the way in which the border itself is changing, disappearing, and posing new, terrifying, and yet largely unseen threats to American security. Ultimately though, Wolf Boys is the intimate story of the "lobos" themselves: boys turned into pawns for cartels. Their stories show how poverty, ideas about identity, and government ignorance have warped the definition of the American dream. ©2016 Dan Slater (P)2016 Simon & Schuster

Without Precedent Audiobook

Without Precedent

Author: Joel Richard Paul Narrator: Fred Sanders Release Date: February 2018

The rich, dramatic story of John Marshall, the most influential Chief Justice in history, who in the early 1800s played a key role in developing the Supreme Court into a crucial part of government. No member of the Founding Generation had a greater impact on the American Constitution than Chief Justice John Marshall, and no one did more than Marshall to preserve the fragile unity of the fledgling United States as it was struggling to establish itself. Marshall led the Supreme Court for thirty-four years (1801-1835), longer than any other Chief Justice, and he singlehandedly established its supremacy in American life. Buffeted by political enemies who were prepared to do anything to stop him, Marshall brilliantly outflanked them. Against forces that threatened to shatter the union, Marshall defended his vision of a strong national government. Armed with nothing more than his innate intelligence, eloquence and his gift for thinking innovatively, Marshall triumphed against all odds. At a time when all of the country's leading southern statesmen -- Washington, Jefferson, Madison, and Monroe -- were from wealthy landowning families, Marshall grew up in a two-room log cabin shared with fourteen siblings on the hardscrabble frontier of Virginia. His only formal education consisted of one year of grammar school and six weeks of law school. Yet in the space of two decades he went from being an unschooled frontiersman to become a military officer, a successful attorney, a foreign diplomat, a national hero, Washington's biographer, a congressman, Secretary of State, and Chief Justice. During a tumultuous time, against myriad enemies, John Marshall held the Supreme Court, the Constitution, and the union together. Without Precedent is the engrossing true story of the life and times of this exceptional man, who understood the balance of power and mastered the art of self-invention, applying both to everything he did.

Who Owns England?: How We Lost Our Green and Pleasant Land, and How to Take It Back Audiobook

Who Owns England?: How We Lost Our Green and Pleasant Land, and How to Take It Back

Author: Guy Shrubsole Narrator: Malk Williams Release Date: May 2019

'A formidable, brave and important book' Robert Macfarlane Who owns England? Behind this simple question lies this country's oldest and best-kept secret. This is the history of how England's elite came to own our land, and an inspiring manifesto for how to open up our countryside once more. This book has been a long time coming. Since 1086, in fact. For centuries, England's elite have covered up how they got their hands on millions of acres of our land, by constructing walls, burying surveys and more recently, sheltering behind offshore shell companies. But with the dawn of digital mapping and the Freedom of Information Act, it's becoming increasingly difficult for them to hide. Trespassing through tightly-guarded country estates, ecologically ravaged grouse moors and empty Mayfair mansions, writer and activist Guy Shrubsole has used these 21st century tools to uncover a wealth of never-before-seen information about the people who own our land, to create the most comprehensive map of land ownership in England that has ever been made public. From secret military islands to tunnels deep beneath London, Shrubsole unearths truths concealed since the Domesday Book about who is really in charge of this country - at a time when Brexit is meant to be returning sovereignty to the people. Melding history, politics and polemic, he vividly demonstrates how taking control of land ownership is key to tackling everything from the housing crisis to climate change - and even halting the erosion of our very democracy. It's time to expose the truth about who owns England - and finally take back our green and pleasant land.

White Shoe: How a New Breed of Wall Street Lawyers Changed Big Business and the American Century Audiobook

White Shoe: How a New Breed of Wall Street Lawyers Changed Big Business and the American Century

Author: John Oller Narrator: Stephen Graybill Release Date: March 2019

The fascinating true story of how a group of visionary attorneys helped make American business synonymous with Big Business, and Wall Street the center of the financial world The legal profession once operated on a smaller scale-folksy lawyers arguing for fairness and justice before a judge and jury. But by the year 1900, a new type of lawyer was born, one who understood business as well as the law. Working hand in glove with their clients, over the next two decades these New York City "white shoe" lawyers devised and implemented legal strategies that would drive the business world throughout the twentieth century. These lawyers were architects of the monopolistic new corporations so despised by many, and acted as guardians who helped the kings of industry fend off government overreaching. Yet they also quietly steered their robber baron clients away from a "public be damned" attitude toward more enlightened corporate behavior during a period of progressive, turbulent change in America. Author John Oller, himself a former Wall Street lawyer, gives us a richly-written glimpse of turn-of-the-century New York, from the grandeur of private mansions and elegant hotels and the city's early skyscrapers and transportation systems, to the depths of its deplorable tenement housing conditions. Some of the biggest names of the era are featured, including business titans J. P. Morgan and John D. Rockefeller, lawyer-statesmen Elihu Root and Charles Evans Hughes, and presidents Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and Woodrow Wilson. Among the colorful, high-powered lawyers vividly portrayed, White Shoe focuses on three: Paul Cravath, who guided his client George Westinghouse in his war against Thomas Edison and launched a new model of law firm management-the "Cravath system"; Frank Stetson, the "attorney general" for financier J. P. Morgan who fiercely defended against government lawsuits to break up Morgan's business empires; and William Nelson Cromwell, the lawyer "who taught the robber barons how to rob," and was best known for his instrumental role in creating the Panama Canal. In White Shoe, the story of this small but influential band of Wall Street lawyers who created Big Business is fully told for the first time.

When Should Law Forgive? Audiobook

When Should Law Forgive?

Author: Martha Minow Narrator: Janet Metzger Release Date: September 2019

The potential power of forgiveness in an age of resentment. Crimes and violations of the law require punishment, and our legal system is set up to punish, but what if the system was recalibrated to also weigh grounds for forgiveness? What if something like bankruptcy-a fresh start for debtors-were available to people convicted of crimes? Martha Minow explores the complicated intersection of the law, justice, and forgiveness, asking whether the law should encourage people to forgive, and when courts, public officials, and specific laws should forgive. Who has the right to forgive? Who should be forgiven? And under what terms? Minow tackles these foundational issues by exploring three questions: - What does the international response to child soldiers teach us about the legal treatment of juvenile offenders in the US? - Why are the laws surrounding corporate debt more forgiving than those governing American student and consumer debt, and sovereign debt in the developing world? - When do law's tools of forgiveness, amnesties, and pardons strengthen justice, peace, and democracy (think South Africa), and when do they undermine law's promise of fairness (think Joe Arpaio)?
