Red Roulette: An Insider's Story of Wealth, Power, Corruption and Vengeance in Today's China Audiobook

Red Roulette: An Insider's Story of Wealth, Power, Corruption and Vengeance in Today's China

Author: Desmond Shum Narrator: Tim Chiou Release Date: September 2021

'THE BOOK CHINA DOESN'T WANT YOU TO READ' CNN In the headline-making and bestselling tradition of Bill Browder's Red Notice comes a unique and incendiary memoir from an entrepreneur who rose to the zenith of power and money in 21st century China and whose wife was disappeared - and then mysteriously reappeared four years later on the eve of Red Roulette's publication and global media coverage about it. As Desmond Shum was growing up impoverished in China, he vowed his life would be different. Through hard work and sheer tenacity, he earned an American college degree and returned to his native country to establish himself in business. There, he met his future wife, the highly intelligent and equally ambitious Whitney Duan who was determined to make her mark within China's male-dominated society. Whitney and Desmond formed an effective team and, aided by relationships they formed with top members of China's Communist Party, the so-called Red Aristocracy, he vaulted into China's billionaire class. Soon they were developing the massive air cargo facility at Beijing International Airport, and they followed that feat with the creation of one of Beijing's premier hotels. They were dazzlingly successful, travelling in private jets, funding multi-million-dollar buildings and endowments, and purchasing expensive homes, vehicles and art. But in 2017, their fates diverged irrevocably when Desmond, while living overseas with his son, learned that his now ex-wife Whitney had vanished along with three co-workers. In Red Roulette Desmond Shum pulls back the curtain on China's ruling elite and reveals the real truth of what is happening inside China's wealth-making machine. This is both Desmond's story and Whitney's, because she has not been able to tell it herself.

App Kid: How a Child of Immigrants Grabbed a Piece of the American Dream Audiobook

App Kid: How a Child of Immigrants Grabbed a Piece of the American Dream

Author: Michael Sayman Narrator: Michael Sayman Release Date: September 2021

An inspiring and deeply personal coming of age memoir from one of Silicon Valley's youngest entrepreneurs-a second-generation Latino immigrant who taught himself how to code as a thirteen-year-old and went on to claim his share of the American dream. As his parents watched their restaurant business collapse in the wake of the Great Recession, Michael Sayman was googling "how to code." Within a year, he had launched an iPhone app that was raking in thousands of dollars a month, enough to keep his family afloat-and in America. Entirely self-taught, Sayman headed from high school straight into the professional world, and by the time he was seventeen, he was Facebook's youngest employe ever, building new features that wowed its founder Mark Zuckerberg and are now being used by more than half a billion people every day. Sayman pushed Facebook to build its own version of Snapchat's Stories and, as a result, engagement on the platform soared across all demographics. Millions of Gen Z and Millennials flocked to Facebook, and as teen engagement rose dramatically on Instagram and WhatsApp, Snapchat's parent company suffered a billion-dollar loss in value. Three years later, Sayman jumped ship for Google. App Kid is the galvanizing story of a young Latino, not yet old enough to drink, who excelled in the cutthroat world of Silicon Valley and went on to become an inspiration to thousands of kids everywhere by following his own surprising, extraordinary path. In this candid and uplifting memoir, Sayman shares the highs and lows, the successes and failures, of his remarkable journey. His book is essential and affirming reading for anyone marching to the beat of their own drum.

Lyrics of My Life: My Journey with Family, HIV and Reality TV Audiobook

Lyrics of My Life: My Journey with Family, HIV and Reality TV

Author: Branden James Narrator: Daniel Henning Release Date: September 2021

The world was not the least bit surprised when Branden James became a finalist on season eight of America's Got Talent, receiving high praise from the judges for his emotional, operatic vocals. Coming out and sharing intimate details of his broken ties with his religious family on the show, he received countless messages from fans who could relate to his personal struggles. Through it all, Branden was surprised by one startling realization: how vital it was for him to be completely authentic in order to help others and himself. Branden continued to inspire his fans by publicly sharing further stories of struggling with depression, overcoming the tumultuous time when he contracted HIV, and being a victim of sexual assault, all while still identifying with the Christian faith. Lyrics of My Life is authentically Branden: a memoir highlighting the conflicts of growing up gay in a world that looked upon his true self and beliefs as an impractical, sinful way of life. Branden spares no details about his unstable life as a young adult, estrangement from his close-knit family, and, despite it all, his unbreakable will to overcome adversity. In a quest for his own personal freedom, Branden finds reconciliation with his family, rediscovers his faith, and realizes that affliction and hardship are not what define us as human beings.

It's Not a Rumour: A Rock and Roll Journey Through Life and Alzheimer's Audiobook

It's Not a Rumour: A Rock and Roll Journey Through Life and Alzheimer's

Author: Frederick Moore Narrator: Michael Butler Murray Release Date: September 2021

Frederick Moore spent his 1950s Minneapolis childhood obsessively teaching himself guitar and writing songs. In the 1960s his bands Skogie and the Flaming Pachucos reached local stardom. After, they put everything they had into their cars and caravanned to Los Angeles. From a garage in suburban Arleta, they evolved Skogie into a new band called The Kats. In the 1980s, The Kats sold out every major club in Los Angeles. The Kats were offered dozens of record contracts while headlining alongside The Police, The Knack, Flash Cadillac and the Continental Kids, and The Motels. They turned down every single one. The 1990s and early 2000s led Moore to the computer-programming world. Coding and music seemed to go hand in hand for him, and he found himself rising through the programming ranks quickly until developing early-onset Alzheimer's. It's Not a Rumour is an unorthodox, hysterical story of survival, and of making it big in music and life without ever making a dime. It's also about getting diagnosed with one of the most frightening diseases known to man, treating memory loss through writing, music, diet, exercise, and natural supplements, and Moore's wife, Renee, who, through her tireless love and research, helped him hold on to these memories as long as he could to share them with the world.

Doce años de esclavitud Audiobook

Doce años de esclavitud

Author: Solomon Northup Narrator: Víctor Sabi Release Date: September 2021

Un desgarrador testimonio de primera mano sobre la experiencia de la esclavitud en Estados Unidos en el siglo XIX. Tal vez el mejor testimonio sobre la época más sombría de la historia estadounidense son las memorias de Solomon Northup, un afroamericano nacido como hombre libre en Nueva York, pero luego engañado, secuestrado y vendido, para acabar doce años esclavizado en varias plantaciones de Luisiana. Sus conmovedoras memorias, escritas después de su liberación en 1853, están introducidas en esta edición por el agudo estudio de la profesora e investigadora Marta Puxan-Oliva. Doce años de esclavitud ha perdurado como una crónica sobre el mal y el lado oscuro del ser humano, pero nos lega también un bello tratado sobre la amistad y la superación. Reseñas: «Cuando lo leí por primera vez, me pregunté: '¿Por qué este libro no está en los estantes de todo el mundo?'. Para mí, es un clásico. Debería encontrarse en todas las escuelas.» Steve McQueen, director de la adaptación cinematográfica del libro «Aterrador, fascinante y fuente de inspiración [...] La historia de Northup parece casi bíblica, escructurada como el descenso y la resurrección de un protagonista que, al igual que Cristo, tenía 33 años en el momento de su abducción [...] Northup nos recuerda lo frágil que es la naturaleza de la libertad en cualquier sociedad humana.» Henry Louis Gates, Jr., The Root «El testamento conmovedor y vital de uno de los 'muchos miles perdidos' en la esclavitud, que supo conservar su humanidad en las entrañas de la humillación.» Saturday Review

Fits and Starts: A Memoir of Living with Epilepsy Audiobook

Fits and Starts: A Memoir of Living with Epilepsy

Author: Franziska Thomas Narrator: Franziska Thomas, Tracy Wiles Release Date: September 2021

'I understand this doesn't look good. Please trust me when I say it isn't as bad as it first appears. I'm not being ironical, facetious or glib. Physical pain is inevitable when you have a tendency to throw yourself around, suffering is optional.' In 1992 Franziska Thomas had her first seizure and her whole world was turned upside down - literally. In Fits and Starts Franziska gives a compelling personal description of living with Epilepsy, an illness shrouded in secrecy and antiquated myths. Laden with self-deprecating humour she describes her own coming of age - as an epileptic, a teacher, and ultimately, a mother. Alternately stubborn and mischievous, down trodden and determined, Franziska remains ever hopeful despite the constant set backs and instinctively refuses to conform to the role the outside world has chosen for her. This searingly honest and thought-provoking memoir is the story of the author's fits, injuries, and memory loss, set inside the wider story of Epilepsy and society. Focussing on her own experience of repeatedly falling down, getting up, then falling down again. Read by Tracy Wiles and Franziska Thomas. Produced by award-winning audio company Almost Tangible, featuring an original title song by Stephanie MacGaraidh. ***About the book: Fits & Starts has sold thousands of copies making it one of the BEST-SELLING books about living with Epilepsy. Any questions you have about Epilepsy, either as an epileptic or someone who knows and loves an Epilepsy sufferer, your questions could be answered here. ***About the author: Franziska has previously worked as a journalist and History teacher. She is currently working as an author and Fundraising Manager for a UK and Nepal based charity. She lives in London with her husband Tim, their children Oskar and Kurt and two misbehaving Maine Coons.

The Believer Audiobook

The Believer

Author: Sarah Krasnostein Narrator: Jennifer Vuletic Release Date: August 2021

From the award-winning author of The Trauma Cleaner comes an exploration of the power of belief. This book is about ghosts and gods and flying saucers and certainty in the absence of knowledge. Weaving together the stories of six extraordinary ordinary people, The Believer looks at the stories we tell ourselves to deal with the distance between the world as it is, and the world as we'd like it to be. How they can stunt us - or save us. Some of the people you will meet believe in things most people don't. Ghosts. UFOs. Heaven and the Devil. The literal creation of the universe in six days. Others believe in things most people would like to. Dying with autonomy. Facing one's own transgressions with an open heart. Intensely personal and gorgeously written Krasnostein talks with her characteristic compassion and empathy to these believers - and finds out what happens when their beliefs crash into her own. "A philosophical meditation on all aspects of faith and self-delusion, with the elegant phrasing of ideas that made The Trauma Cleaner such a delight." GUARDIAN "The author has the rare combination of skills that allows her to not only build enough trust and rapport with her interview subjects that they will reveal intimate details about their lives, but to also distil a person down to their essence and put that on the page in a way that is simultaneously informative, sensitive and enthralling...the true strength of The Believer is in each compellingly rendered story...[Those] who liked The Trauma Cleaner or Ramona Koval's A Letter To Layla will find much to appreciate in The Believer.'

Appetite: A Memoir in Recipes of Family and Food Audiobook

Appetite: A Memoir in Recipes of Family and Food

Author: Ed Balls Narrator: Ed Balls Release Date: August 2021

'Delightfully different' - Delia Smith   Ed Balls was just three weeks old when he tried his first meal: pureed roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. While perhaps ill-advised by modern weaning standards, it worked for him in 1967, and from that moment on he was hooked on food.   Appetite is a memoir with a twist: part autobiography, part cookbook, each chapter is a recipe that tells a story. Ed was taught to cook by his mother, and now he's passing these recipes on to his own children as they start to fly the nest. Sitting round the table year after year, the world around us may change, but great recipes last a lifetime.   Appetite is a celebration of love, family, and really good food.

At Home on St. Simons Audiobook

At Home on St. Simons

Author: Eugenia Price Narrator: Nan Mcnamara Release Date: August 2021

Here, for the first time outside the pages of a small Island newspaper called Georgia's Coastal Illustrated, Eugenia shares with her worldwide reading public, some of what life was like during the first years in which she and her best friend and fellow writer, Joyce Blackburn, were becoming Islanders. "These short pieces," Genie says, "Include my observations day by day of what it was like at last to be at home on St. Simons. We were learning how to be neighbors, after so many years of complex life in the huge northern city of Chicago; learning how to care deeply for people with whom, at first glance, we had little in common. We were understanding what it really meant to have come home." Eugenia Price, called by many St. Simons' own "beloved invader", tells you here about those early years as they were being lived. Her St. Simons Memoir, cherished by thousands, was written from memory and notes in old desk calendars, but At Home on St. Simons illuminates some of the experiences which most changed her - as they occurred. More than fourteen million people have read Eugenia Price's books which have been translated into fifteen languages. Much of the magic these millions remember so vividly years after the reading, began in the simply, sad, joyous and absorbing events related to this singular volume. Never before published is a brand new opening chapter, in which Ms. Price attempts to explain-almost as to herself-why, in the face of such drastic change on the once provincial little coastal island, she is still-at home on St. Simons. Her readers do not have to see the Island firsthand, to recognize their own response to her sense of place.
