The utter despair of not having control of ones life or this of ones loved ones and the struggle to live a life with dignity as others see you as subhuman comes through loud and clear in this work. It is also a testament of what a person can endure when the stakes are high enough. The peculiar institution that the slavery apologists tried to paint a rosy color on by saying the slaves were happy to be controlled and taken care of his dismantled as the feeble stack of cards it is.
Reads like a biography of cancer from its ancient history through the medical follies and progressive steps by Doctors and Scientists to try to find a cure.
An enjoyable collection of poems but I preferred the Poets Corner collection by Lithgow with its mini summary of each poet and poem to give context.
The author builds the case that the mass incarceration of people is no mistake as the system has been made as the next evolution of the old Jim Crow laws in the south. She focuses on a broken war on drugs that have lead to a normalcy in the poor communities of everyone having a criminal back ground and how that background becomes a scarlet letter keeping them out of society and severely limiting their life choices.
An eclectic collection of poets make up this book. I enjoyed the guest readers who did a great job of giving life to the readings. Lithgow's love for poetry comes through as he gives his personal history of reading poetry and then proceeds to give a brief review of each poet. It is certainly a collection I will listen to from time to time.
Full off danger and intrigue and a huge dose of heart as Anthony and his workers strive to save the Elephants and other animals. The tragic story of the baby elephant with the deformed legs was heart wrenching. A great read for any animal lover
An interesting read on how educated people can get wrapped up in nostalgia and labeling things. The exposure over the Pluto declassification as a plant certainly stocked the discussion on scientific topics.
This was very much directed at leadership in the Health Care industry but there was good information here about encouraging the heart to the point that i completed listening to it. I guess I should have read the summary or reviews rather than relying on the cover.
AWOL tells the story of a budding through hiker who take a break from the cube life of Suburbia to take on a through hike of the Appalachian trail. It is full of stories of physical pain and endurance as he battles though with a purest mentality to walk every step of the trail. The characters AWOL meets along the trail, the battle against himself as well as the elements, and the communing with nature stories make for a very interesting read.
Very dated. This is a collection of interviews from top traders from around 1990. I couldn't help but keep wondering how many of them got wiped out by the great recession. Certainly conflicting advice here with some pushing for technical analysis and others not, some pushing for holding for the long term and others flipping trades constantly.
Talks about how to use operations management strategies to turn the usual focus on cutting labor thin to bleed out profits to over staffing to build a happy, healthy, fully engaged work force that will drive profit growth.
