    Johann Sebastian Bach has been called the father of Western music; precise and incredibly prolific, his works fill 52 volumes. He was an obstinate but nevertheless modest man and the outstanding tributes paid to his work more than a 100 years after his burial in an unmarked grave, would have probably amused him. This programme traces the development of his life and work and is copiously illustrated with examples of his music.

    At least one out of four people prefers to avoid the limelight, tends to listen more than they speak, feels alone in large groups, and requires lots of private time to restore their energy. They're introverts, and here is the book to help them boost their confidence while learning strategies for successfully living in an extrovert world. After dispelling common myths about introverts-they're not necessarily shy, aloof, or antisocial - The Introvert Advantage explains the real issues. Introverts are hardwired from birth to focus inward, so outside stimulation - chitchat, phone calls, parties, office meetings - can easily become "too much."

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is without doubt the most famous of all musical child prodigies. At the age of 6 he enthralled the Austrian Court with his unbelievable virtuosity. Yet he died friendless and in poverty at the age of 36, a victim of jealousy, and vicious intrigue. Mozart's story is a tragedy, but one filled with superb music; for he brought new colour, passion and power to opera, symphony and concerto.

    The Bible is not necessarily easy to understand because it is not a book but more than 60 books, written by those inspired by God over a period of 1700 years. There have been many Bible study guides, methods, systems and outlines published in a sincere effort to help people read the Bible. However, for many people these guides are intimidating and unintentionally confusing as they direct the reader to take a section of one book, sections from other books, and piece them together like building a puzzle.

    This audio biography vividly traces the life of a man who is regarded as the greatest scientist the world has ever known. It tells of his schooldays and earliest experiments, through the terrible plague years when he began the work that was to make him famous forever, to the publication of his book, The Principia, a masterpiece that did no less than describe the workings of the universe. Yet he was a modest man, who cared little for his appearance and detested argument.

    [Contains explicit content] If you think about it, Texas and Florida really just go together. They're in the south, but they sure ain't "the South." They both enjoy guns and chaos. And they both contain some of the strangest juxtapositions in the country. In this episode of Sounds Like America, host Michelle Buteau takes you on a rich, wild ride through these two eccentric states - stopping for weird ducks, Disney World, cicada horror shows, and of course, a football game led by a coach with a voice like a chainsaw.

    David Allen, author of Getting Things Done, uses lists so he doesn't have to make a plan. This may seem counterintuitive, but it's actually extremely intuitive thinking. As soon as something crosses your mind, it is best to deal with it immediately in the most appropriate way. Most of the time, that means writing an action item down on a list to do later.
