That One Patient: Doctors and Nurses’ Stories of the Patients Who Changed Their Lives Forever Audiobook

That One Patient: Doctors and Nurses’ Stories of the Patients Who Changed Their Lives Forever

Author: Ellen De Visser Narrator: Julian Wadham, Karen Cass Release Date: February 2021

THE INTERNATIONAL BEST SELLER FEATURING INTERVIEWS WITH DR ANTHONY FAUCI, DAME SALLY DAVIES AND DR JIM DOWN For every doctor there is that one patient, whose story touches them in a way they didn’t expect, changing their entire outlook on life. This inspiring and deeply moving book is the story of those patients. Every weekend, in Holland’s most popular newspaper, de Volkskrant, renowned science-journalist Ellen de Visser asks a different medical professional to tell her about ‘that one patient’; the patient who changed everything for them. Every day, in every country, thousands of patients share their stories with their doctors: stories they may never have told anyone else; stories that are heartbreaking, sometimes funny, and – just occasionally – unforgettable. To be able to do their job to the best of their abilities, medical experts use their ‘professional empathy’: they sympathize with their patients but try to keep themselves at a distance. But there is always that one patient who, for whatever reason, bridges this distance and often unwittingly, has a lasting impact on their doctor’s life. There’s the dying patient whose decision to donate their organs would save the lives of five different people, bringing incredible comfort to the family they left behind. Or the little girl who showed clear evidence of having been beaten by an adult, but who remained too loyal to her step-father to say a word. There’s the little boy, diagnosed with life-threatening malaria in a Sudanese refugee camp, whose astonishing survival against the odds still inspires their doctor each time they stand by the bed of a child who looks unlikely to make it. And there’s the cancer patient whose love of cycling and unflagging optimism inspired his oncologist in ways he could never have imagined. That One Patient is brimming with intimate stories of connection and of the unanticipated ways we can affect one other’s lives. All of them remind us of just how extraordinary humans can be, and of our incredible capacity for bravery, strength and humour.

A Curious Boy: The Making of a Scientist Audiobook

A Curious Boy: The Making of a Scientist

Author: Richard Fortey Narrator: Mike Grady Release Date: February 2021

What makes a scientist? In a charming memoir, beloved and brilliant scientist Richard Fortey offers a tour of the natural world in all its joys, puzzles and curiosities. In this memoir, Richard Fortey – a palaeontologist and natural historian – tells the story of how as a young boy he became fascinated with the natural world, leading to a long life exploring its secrets. He leads a journey through botany and birds, fossils and fungi, using a different object to lead each chapter. A great brown trout caught by his father opens up the world of fish, streams and rivers. A blue thrush’s egg takes us out tramping through water meadows and into the social world of birds and trees. Richard takes us back to his past as a small boy who was allowed a little shed at the bottom of the garden in which to play chemist, and where, with the guidance of the encyclopaedia, he made the likes of potassium cyanide from horse hoof clippings, and then the ‘smelliest substance’ – a chemical that when taken outside the shed’s confines brought mayhem to his school, and the Central Line. Educational and inspiring, this is a charming memoir of a life in the thrall of science and the wonders of the natural world.

All Dogs Great and Small: What I’ve learned training dogs Audiobook

All Dogs Great and Small: What I’ve learned training dogs

Author: Graeme Hall Narrator: Graeme Hall Release Date: February 2021

Brought to you by Penguin. Have you ever wished you could get the dogs in your life to behave better? Enter Graeme Hall: The Dogfather. Having worked with more than 5,000 dogs - from Great Danes to Chihuahuas, and everything in-between - he's seen pretty much every behavioural issue going and whether it's house-destruction, fear and anxiety, or aggression, he's fixed it. Backed up by scientific research, Graeme has established a set of golden rules for dog training which he follows each and every time he works with dogs and their people. His simple, practical and effective rules will enable you to understand your dog and help you drive better behaviours. With chapters on communication, rewards, getting a puppy, kids and dogs, lead walking, and much more, Graeme has an answer for every dog-related worry imaginable. You will learn how to talk to dogs like he does - and understand what they're saying in return. You'll find out how to be a kind leader your dog will willingly follow and you'll get to see why excitement might be at the root of the problem. A dog with behavioural issues is an unhappy dog. And likely has an unhappy owner. But the good news is, at heart, every dog wants to be a good dog. Through sharing entertaining and sometimes hilarious stories of some of the very special dogs Graeme has loved or helped, All Dogs Great and Small will give you the tools to help your beloved pooch practise perfect manners, and bring much-needed harmony to your home. © Graeme Hall 2021 (P) Penguin Audio 2021

How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need Audiobook

How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need

Author: Bill Gates Narrator: Bill Gates, Wil Wheaton Release Date: February 2021

Brought to you by Penguin. Bill Gates has spent a decade investigating the causes and effects of climate change. With the help of experts in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, political science, and finance, he has focused on what must be done in order to stop the planet's slide toward certain environmental disaster. In this book, he not only explains why we need to work toward net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases, but also details what we need to do to achieve this profoundly important goal. He gives us a clear-eyed description of the challenges we face. Drawing on his understanding of innovation and what it takes to get new ideas into the market, he describes the areas in which technology is already helping to reduce emissions, where and how the current technology can be made to function more effectively, where breakthrough technologies are needed, and who is working on these essential innovations. Finally, he lays out a concrete, practical plan for achieving the goal of zero emissions-suggesting not only policies that governments should adopt, but what we as individuals can do to keep our government, our employers, and ourselves accountable in this crucial enterprise. As Bill Gates makes clear, achieving zero emissions will not be simple or easy to do, but if we follow the plan he sets out here, it is a goal firmly within our reach. © Bill Gates 2020 (P) Penguin Audio 2020

Crypto Asset Investing in the Age of Autonomy: The Complete Handbook to Building Wealth in the Next  Audiobook

Crypto Asset Investing in the Age of Autonomy: The Complete Handbook to Building Wealth in the Next

Author: Jake Ryan Narrator: Barry Abrams Release Date: February 2021

We've seen evidence that a new economic cycle has begun. Technological revolutions come by way of a cluster of new innovations. About a decade ago, you started to see AI, robotics, and IoT (sensors) delivering on automation. That's been powerful, but not transformational. It does not force businesses to fundamentally change how they do business. The last piece of the puzzle is cryptocurrency because it allows us to process and transfer economic value without human intervention. Soon, there will be a global race to build autonomous operations. Businesses and organizations without autonomous operations simply will not be able to compete with those that do because autonomy is the ultimate competitive advantage. Crypto is the mechanism that will accrue value from being the infrastructure for the next digital financial revolution. Crypto Asset Investing in the Age of Autonomy lays out a case that we've begun a new technological revolution similar to the Internet Age of the 1990s. Artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, robotics, and cryptocurrency are converging to deliver on a new age, what author Jake Ryan calls the Age of Autonomy. Understanding the transformation that's taken place before anyone else can yield enormous investment opportunity. In this book, you'll learn how and why to invest in crypto assets.

Author: Richard O. Moore Iii Narrator: Walter Dixon Release Date: February 2021

Cyber Intelligence-Driven Risk provides a solution to one of the most pressing issues that executives and risk managers face: How can we weave information security into our business decisions to minimize overall business risk?

Building, buying, or outsourcing a CI-DR program is the answer. In his work with executives at leading financial organizations and with the US military, author Richard O. Moore III has tested and proven this next-level approach to Intelligence and Risk. This book is a guide to: building, buying, or outsourcing a cyber intelligence-driven risk program; understanding the functional capabilities needed to sustain the program; using cyber intelligence to support Enterprise Risk Management; reducing loss from cyber events by building new organizational capacities; and supporting mergers and acquisitions with predictive analytics.

The New Normal: A Roadmap to Resilience in the Pandemic Era Audiobook

The New Normal: A Roadmap to Resilience in the Pandemic Era

Author: Jennifer Ashton Narrator: Jennifer Ashton Release Date: February 2021

From Dr. Jennifer Ashton—the Chief Medical Correspondent at ABC News covering breaking medical news for Good Morning America and GMA3: What You Need to Know—comes a doctor’s guide to finding resilience in the time of COVID, while staying safe and sane in a rapidly changing world. In March 2020, “normal” life changed, perhaps forever. In its place we were confronted with life and routines that were unusual and different: the new normal.  As we’ve all learned since then, the new normal isn’t just about wearing masks and standing six feet apart—it’s about recognizing how to stay safe and sane in a world that is suddenly unfamiliar. And no one understands this evolving landscape better than Dr. Jennifer Ashton. As ABC’s Chief Medical Correspondent, Dr. Ashton has been reporting on the novel coronavirus daily, helping Americans comprehend the urgent medical updates that have shaped the nation’s continued response to this public health crisis.   Now in The New Normal, Dr. Ashton offers the essential toolkit for life in this unfamiliar reality.  Rooted in her reporting on COVID-19 and the understanding that the virus isn’t going anywhere overnight, The New Normal is built on a simple foundation: thriving in this evolving world demands accepting the new normal for what it is, not what we want it to be. No longer is wellness a buzzword, but an imperative for surviving this unprecedented time. Using her trademark practical, easy-to-follow advice, Dr. Ashton gives you all the necessary information to reclaim control of your life and live safely—from exercise, to diet, to general health—showing how to prepare your body and mind for challenges such as:   - Taking proper medical precautions to protect yourself and your loved ones - Exercising during the pandemic, even if you no longer feel safe at the gym - Finding emotional balance through these uncertain times - Deciphering complicated medical news to learn what to trust and what to ignore   With these straightforward and accessible strategies and many more, Dr. Ashton helps empower you to make the unexpectedly hard decisions about socializing, food-shopping, seeing doctors, and most of all, finding normalcy. At once reassuring and urgent, The New Normal is a holistic roadmap through the ongoing struggles of the pandemic, providing the guidance you need to navigate this unsettling time and take charge of your future wellbeing.

Pandemics: A Very Short Introduction Audiobook

Pandemics: A Very Short Introduction

Author: Christian W. Mcmillen Narrator: Joe Barrett Release Date: February 2021

Christian W. McMillen provides a concise yet comprehensive account of pandemics throughout human history, illustrating how pandemic disease has shaped history and, at the same time, social behavior has influenced pandemic disease. This Very Short Introduction describes history's major pandemics-plague, tuberculosis, malaria, smallpox, cholera, influenza, and HIV/AIDS-highlighting how each disease's biological characteristics affected its pandemic development. McMillen discusses state responses to pandemics, such as quarantine, isolation, travel restrictions, and other forms of social control, and pays special attention to the rise of public health and the explosion of medical research in the wake of pandemics, especially as the germ theory of disease emerged in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Today, medicine is able to control all of these diseases, yet some of them are still devastating in much of the developing world. By assessing the relationship between poverty and disease and the geography of epidemics, McMillen offers an outspoken and thought-provoking point of view on the necessity for global governments to learn from past experiences and proactively cooperate to prevent any future epidemic.

Birthing a Movement: Midwives, Law, and the Politics of Reproductive Care Audiobook

Birthing a Movement: Midwives, Law, and the Politics of Reproductive Care

Author: Renee Ann Cramer Narrator: Susan Ericksen Release Date: February 2021

Midwives in the United States live and work in a complex regulatory environment that is a direct result of state and medical intervention into women's reproductive capacity. In Birthing a Movement, Renee Ann Cramer draws on over a decade of ethnographic and archival research to examine the interactions of law, politics, and activism surrounding midwifery care. Framed by gripping narratives from midwives across the country, she parses out the often-paradoxical priorities with which they must engage-seeking formal professionalization, advocating for reproductive justice, and resisting state-centered approaches. Currently, professional midwives are legal and regulated in their practice in thirty-two states and illegal in eight, where their practice could bring felony convictions and penalties that include imprisonment. In the remaining ten states, Certified Professional Midwives (CPMs) are unregulated, but nominally legal. By studying states where CPMs have differing legal statuses, Cramer makes the case that midwives and their clients engage in various forms of mobilization-at times simultaneous, and at times inconsistent-to facilitate access to care, autonomy in childbirth, and the articulation of women's authority in reproduction.
