              There is no more universal truth in life than death. No matter who you are, it is certain that one day you will die, but the mechanics and understanding of that experience will differ greatly in today's modern age. Dr. Haider Warraich is a young and brilliant new voice in the con...versation about death and dying started by Dr. Sherwin Nuland and Atul Gawande. Dr. Warraich takes a broader look at how we die today, from the cellular level up to the very definition of death itself. The most basic aspects of dying - the whys, wheres, whens, and hows - are almost nothing like what they were mere decades ago. Beyond its ecology, epidemiology, and economics, the very ethos of death has changed. Modern Death, Dr. Warraich's debut book, will explore the rituals and language of dying that have developed in the last century, and how modern technology has not only changed the hows, whens, and wheres of death, but the what of death. Delving into the vast body of research on the evolving nature of death, Modern Death will provide listeners with an enriched understanding of how death differs from the past, what our ancestors got right, and how trends and events have transformed this most final of human experiences. Cover design by Jeremy Fink.

              The Lost Airman: A True Story of Escape from Nazi-Occupied France (Audio disc / Other, Unabridged edition)

              By Meyerowitz, Seth; Stevens, Peter F.; Read by Ross, Jonathan Todd

              Arthur Meyerowitz was on his second air mission over France when he was shot down in 1943. He was one of only two men on the B-24 Liberator known as Harmful Lil' Armful who escaped death or immediate capture on the ground. After fleeing the wreck, Meyerowitz knocked on the door o...f an isolated farmhouse, whose owners hastily took him in. Fortunately, his hosts not only despised the Nazis but had a tight connection to the French resistance group Morhange and its founder, Marcel Taillandier. Meyerowitz and Taillandier formed an improbable bond as the resistance leader arranged for Meyerowitz's transfers among safe houses in southern France, shielding him from the Gestapo. Based on recently declassified material, exclusive personal interviews and extensive research into the French Resistance, The Lost Airman tells the tense and riveting story of Meyerowitz's trying months in Toulouse - masquerading as a deaf mute and working with downed British pilot Richard Frank Warren Cleaver to evade the Nazis - and of his hair-raising journey to freedom involving a perilous trek over the Pyrenees and a voyage aboard a fishing skiff with U-boats lurking below and Luftwaffe fighters looming above. The Lost Airman is a never-before-told, fascinating story of spycraft and a true account of endurance, perseverance and escape during the Second World War.

More importantly, a home becomes part of th...e psyche that houses your most powerful memories. You can reminisce about a rental, but you'll never love it the same way.

The eight-step process consists of making the decision to buy, how to hire a great real estate agent, determining what you can afford to buy, securing the best financing, recognizing the right home for you, crafting a winning offer and negotiating with sellers, spotting serious issues at inspection, closing on your new home and how to maintain it for years to come. You'll also learn about successful creative financing strategies and ways to overcome less-than-perfect credit.

              The Chickenshit Club: Why the Justice Department Fails to Prosecute Executiveswhite Collar Criminals (Audio CD / Audio, Unabridged)

              Winner of the 2018 Excellence in Financial Journalism Award From Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jesse Eisinger, a blistering account of corporate greed and impunity, and the reckless, often anemic response from the Department of Justice.Why were no bankers put in prison after ...the financial crisis of 2008? Why do CEOs seem to commit wrongdoing with impunity? The problem goes beyond banks deemed Too Big to Fail to almost every large corporation in America--to pharmaceutical companies and auto manufacturers and beyond. The Chickenshit Club--an inside reference to prosecutors too scared of failure and too daunted by legal impediments to do their jobs--explains why. A character-driven narrative, the book tells the story from inside the Department of Justice. The complex and richly reported story spans the last decade and a half of prosecutorial fiascos, corporate lobbying, trial losses, and culture shifts that have stripped the government of the will and ability to prosecute top corporate executives. The book begins in the 1970s, when the government pioneered the notion that top corporate executives, not just seedy crooks, could commit heinous crimes and go to prison. The book travels to trading desks on Wall Street, to corporate boardrooms and the offices of prosecutors and F.B.I agents. These revealing looks provide context for the evolution of the Justice Department's approach to pursuing corporate criminals through the early aughts and into the Justice Department of today. Exposing one of the most important scandals of our time, The Chickenshit Club provides a clear, detailed explanation as to how our Justice Department has come to avoid, bungle, and mismanage the fight to bring these alleged criminals to justice.

              Animalkind: Remarkable Discoveries about Animals and Revolutionary New Ways to Show Them Compassion (Audio CD / Audio, Unabridged)

              The founder and president of PETA, Ingrid Newkirk, and bestselling author Gene Stone explore the wonders of animal life and offer tools for living more kindly toward them.In the last few decades, a wealth of new information has emerged about who animals are--intelligent, aware, a...nd empathetic. Studies show that animals are astounding living beings with emotions, intricate communications networks, and myriad abilities. In Animalkind, PETA founder Ingrid Newkirk and bestselling author Gene Stone present these findings in a concise, cohesive, reader-friendly way, detailing a range of surprising discoveries: that geese fall in love and stay with a partner for life, that mice sing underwater, and that elephants grieve and mourn, even visiting from long distances after a relative has died. Newkirk and Stone pair their tour of the astounding lives of animals with a guide to the exciting new tools that allow humans to avoid using or abusing animals as we once did. The second half of the book shows readers what they can do in their everyday lives to ensure that the animal world is protected from needless harm. Whether it's medicine, product testing, entertainment, clothing, or food, there are now better options to all the uses animals once served in human life. We can substitute faux fleece for real wool, choose plant-based foods instead of meat and cheese, reap the benefits of medical research that no longer requires monkeys caged in laboratories, and scrap captive orca exhibits and elephant rides for virtual reality and animatronics. Animalkind is a fascinating study of why our fellow living beings deserve our respect, and moreover, the steps every reader can take to put this new understanding into action.
