Genovese, Gambino, Bonnano, Colombo, and Lucchese. For decades these Five Families ruled New York and built the American Mafia (or Cosa Nostra) into an underworld empire. Today, the Mafia is an endangered species, battered and beleaguered by aggressive investigators, incompetent leadership, betrayals, and generational changes that produced violent, unreliable leaders and recruits.

Everyone loves a good spy story, but most of the ones we hear are fictional. That's because the most dangerous and important spycraft is done in secret, often without anyone even noticing. In Survive Like a Spy, best-selling author and former CIA officer Jason Hanson takes the listener deep inside the world of espionage, revealing true stories and expert tactics from real agents engaged in life-threatening missions around the world.

Peter Drucker, "the father of modern management", records his insights here on the management of non-profit human-service institutions. Speaking from knowledge gained over the last 35 years through working with such clients as the American Red Cross and the Girl Scouts, Drucker illustrates how the "third sector", made up of not-for-profit organizations, is not only larger and more important than most people realize, but is also the fastest growing part of American society.
