    Euripides' classic tragedy in a new verse translation and a new, full cast audio production. After Troy fell to the Greeks, Andromache, the wife of the slain Trojan king Hector, was taken as prize and given to Achilles' son Neoptolemus as his concubine. He treated her kindly, and in the fullness of time she bore him a son. But Neoptolemus went on to take as his wife Hermione, the daughter of Menelaus, but she could bear him no children. Enraged with jealousy, Hermione plots the death of Andromache.

    Bonds are the world's leading financial instrument, far exceeding the size of stock (equity) markets, yet few Americans understand them, let alone know how to invest in them, or realize how easy such investments are. With simple, easy-to-understand examples, The Itty Bitty Bond Book 2016 takes listeners through the ins and outs of savings bonds, corporate bonds, municipal bonds, treasuries, and CDs, with emphasis on resources that are accessible to everyone, not just the wealthy.

Interest rates are near record lows and it seems crazy to invest in them, but then real estate, stocks, and alternate investments all have their own risks. Or maybe you think that bonds are only for rich, old people. But did you know that you can invest in bonds for as little as $25? Did you know that the U.S. bond market is by far the largest financial market in the world, much larger than the stock market?
