  • Parenting Without Power Struggles: Raising Joyful, Resilient Kids While Staying Cool, Calm, and Connected

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 36 mins)
    • By Susan Stiffelman
    • Narrated By Susan Stiffelman

    While most parenting programs are designed to coerce kids to change, Parenting Without Power Struggles does something innovative, showing you how to help your children awaken their natural instincts to cooperate, rather than employing threats or bribes, which inevitably fuels their resistance. By staying calm and being the confident "captain of the ship" your child needs, you will learn how to parent from a place of strong, durable connection, and you'll be better able to help your kids navigate the challenging moments of growing up.

    Nothing really matters says: "Highly recommended."
    "Be the Captain of your ship."

Imagine how amazing it would feel to not get sucked into a back-and-forth verbal struggle with your kids about little things. And remember, you are the parent!

  • The Alchemy of Air: A Jewish Genius, a Doomed Tycoon, and the Scientific Discovery That Fed the World but Fueled the Rise of Hitler

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 47 mins)
    • By Thomas Hager
    • Narrated By Adam Verner
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    At the dawn of the 20th century, humanity was facing global disaster. Mass starvation, long predicted for the fast-growing population, was about to become a reality. A call went out to the worlds scientists to find a solution. This is the story of the two enormously gifted, fatally flawed men who found it: the brilliant, self-important Fritz Haber and the reclusive, alcoholic Carl Bosch. Together they discovered a way to make bread out of air, built city-sized factories, controlled world markets, and saved millions of lives.

    sarah says: "Riveting"
    "History, science, war, & amazing people"

    The Alchemy of Air is a fasinating story. From the need to feed the increasing population of the world, to chemical warfare... This is an amazing history that has all the elements of a great story. And best of all, it is a true story told extreemly well. If you have an introductory knowledge of chemistry, the information on nitrogen fixation will be in your grasp of understanding. The history has a frame of reference that is easy to follow through the 20th century. The narration is smooth and relaxed and well suited to the story that it just carries you along from start to finish.

  • Crazy Salad and Scribble, Scribble: Some Things About Women and Notes on Media

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 59 mins)
    • By Nora Ephron
    • Narrated By Kathe Mazur
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    This edition brings together some of Ephron’s most famous writing on a generation of women (and men) who helped shape the way we live now, and on events ranging from the Watergate scandal to the Pillsbury Bake-Off. In these sharp, hilariously entertaining, and vividly observed pieces, Ephron illuminates an era with wicked honesty and insight. From the famous "A Few Words About Breasts" to important pieces on her time working for the New York Post and Gourmet Magazine, these essays show Ephron at her very best.

    Mitzi Ho says: "too bad"
    "Wanted to love this...but..."

    If you are of the same generation as Nora, you will relate to the stories better than I. I wanted to love this book. I was hoping for some wisdom on aging in that Nora Ephron wit of her screen plays. The stories are like a comentary on the events of the times in which she was living through, many read out like a diary entry. The narnators voice is a good fit for the author, so it is like you are hearing the author read her stories. This book is long if you don't or can't relate to the stories. For example the storie about returning to Wellesley... was a bit of a 'you had to be there'. Unfortunately I could not finish this book as I lost interest.
