I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."
Mark Hyman tallys the price of youth sports in the USA in dollars and lives. From equipment to private lessons, from tournament trips to MRIs, parents are bleeding themselves dry for their children’s activities.
Some parents try to live their dreams through their children. They believe they're investing in their children’s future, led astray by the many corporate youth programs who tell them their kids are the next Venus & Serena Williams— they just need more lessons, more workshops, more camps.
This fine investigative journalism might make you think twice before you send your kid across the country to Lacrosse summer camp.
A Melville-style conquest of the Biggest Wave in the World, the story of the men who captured it—and those who were destroyed. Sherlock Holmes meets Adventure Tale.
Cortes Bank, the fabled land off the North Pacific, has the special elements to make the largest waves in the world. Dixon explains in depth why it's possible, and what it takes to surf it. Fascinating, frightening, thrilling.
This is one of those books about a legend—the whole time you’re reading it you’re thinking, “Wow, Billie Jean is AWESOME.”
"Game, Set, Match" is a biography about Billie Jean King, the woman who "made" women’s tennis, and helped bring the world’s attention to women’s sports.
She was also a closeted lesbian for a long time, and then later came out, before it was the least bit fashionable. Balls!
A great under-dog story, fantastic build up, with a satisfying ending.
Narrated by Donna Postel, who voices another of my favorite books, "The Ultimate Guide to Sex and Disability."
