              Shame: Free Yourself, Find Joy and Build True Self-Esteem (Audio disc / Other, Unabridged edition)

              Shame is a difficult emotion, and most of us do what we can to avoid it. But veteran psychologist Joe Burgo shows us how we can use shame - which is an inevitable part of being human - as a tool for better understanding ourselves and our relationships with others. Encounters with... embarrassment, guilt, self-consciousness and remorse are an unavoidable part of everyday life, and they sometimes have lessons to teach us - about our goals and values, about the person we expect ourselves to be. Richly illustrated with clinical stories from Burgo's 35 years in private practice, Shame suggests that this often excruciating emotion tells us a lot about our own self-awareness, and should not always be considered a toxic influence in our lives. Joseph Burgo takes an intimate look at the full spectrum of shame - often masked by addiction, promiscuity, perfectionism, self-loathing or narcissism - and offers a new, positive route forward on the road to authentic self-esteem.

              A mysterious entity may be the key to a starship's survival--or a terrifying new threat--as the Odyssey One series continues... The Empire has set its sights on its next target: human Terrans. As effective allies of the Priminae, the denizens of Earth have proven themselves enemi...es to the Empire, and now the Imperial forces know more about the Terran home world than ever before. The battle for the planet's survival will see the Odysseus first into the breach. But more perils loom for Commodore Eric Weston and his comrades. They're at odds with the political conflicts dividing Earth's government and challenged by the mysterious presence haunting their vessel--its intentions unclear, and the extent of its powers unknown. As the Empire brings the battle home, the crew of the Odysseus will need to determine whether this entity will support them in their fight for survival, or prove to be another dangerous foe. There's no turning back...and the only way forward may be a pathway to doom.

              THE THIRD TARGETThe Islamic State, a dangerous al Qaeda offshoot also known as ISIS, is on the rampage. Already they have attacked two governments, brutally killing anyone who stands in their way. Now they have their sights set on a third target. But who will it be? The United St...ates? Israel? Or someone else? When award-winning New York Times correspondent J. B. Collins hears rumors that ISIS has captured a cache of chemical weapons, he risks everything by sneaking into Syria to locate and interview the commander of the terrorist organization. Under intense pressure from multiple governments not to publish his findings, he faces a decision that could cost him his career or his life. With the American president set to visit the region, the Middle East teeters on the edge of explosion. As a war-weary world hopes for peace, and a bloodthirsty terrorist regime grows in strength, who will prevail? Can Collins, with the help of a mysterious and beautiful Mossad agent, alert the world to the danger before ISIS can unleash its apocalyptic vision? Or with chemical weapons in the hands of radical Islamic jihadists, is it already too late?THE FIRST HOSTAGENew York Times correspondent J. B. Collins saw the horrific evidence with his own eyes.

Brought into the inner circle of the king of Jordan, Collins is desperate to discover the fate of the president before it s too late. But there s a problem: someone is leaking secrets to ISIS. And Collins finds himself a prime suspect. Now he s in a race to clear his own name in time to prevent the unthinkable. What he encounters along the way will change him forever. Deep in the tunnels beneath an ancient city, he will come face-to-face

              The Strenuous Life: Theodore Roosevelt and the Making of the American Athlete (Audio CD / Audio, Unabridged)

              Crippling asthma, a frail build, and grossly myopic eyesight: these were the ailments that plagued Teddy Roosevelt as a child. In adulthood, he was diagnosed with a potentially fatal heart condition and was told never to exert himself again. Roosevelt's body was his weakness, the... one hill he could never fully conquer, and as a result he developed what would become a lifelong obsession with athletics that he carried with him into his presidency. As President of the United States, Roosevelt boxed, practiced Ju-Jitsu, played tennis nearly every day, and invited athletes and teams to the White House constantly. He made certain that each of his children participated in athletics. During Roosevelt's administration, America saw an unprecedented rise in fitness, sports, and recreational athletics unlike any that has come before or after it. Under Roosevelt, baseball's first ever World Series took place. Interscholastic sports began, and schools began to place a legitimate emphasis on physical education. The NCAA formed, and the United States hosted the Olympic Games for the first time. It was a period of dynamic change, a time which set in place the athletic paradigm by which we still operate today. Roosevelt resided squarely in the midst of the upheaval. He fought desperately (and sometimes successfully) to shape American athletics in accordance with his imperialistic view of the world. This book shows that, in one way or another, we can trace our fanaticism for fitness directly back to the 26th President of the United States and his relentless pursuit of The Strenuous Life, which shaped not only his own decisions, but the landscape of the country as it entered into the 20th century.
