All you need to know about Game of Thrones! This project endeavors to serve two kinds of listeners at the same time: those who like history and those who like Game of Thrones. The two are often mutual interests. In effect this audiobook is a real-life historical breakdown of the cultures, characters, and events contained within George R. R. Martin´s epic book series A Song of Ice and Fire (ASOIAF). The books and short stories, along with the global smash hit HBO TV series Game of Thrones, which is based upon the ASOIAF novels, is set in a complex, engrossing medieval fantasy world every bit as interesting, complicated, morally gray, and brutal as humanity´s real history. The reason for Mr. Martin´s level of detail in crafting his characters, locations, cultures, and histories within the ASOIAF world is rather simple. George R. R. Martin is a lifelong student of history as well as an unashamed history nerd. In interview after interview, the author of this truly expansive world admits to drawing upon real events, real cultures, and actual peoples within world history as templates for his imagination to build upon. Mr. Martin seems to have a particular affinity for the medieval period (5th to 15th centuries CE) of Europe and the Middle East, with a great deal of inspiration coming from British history during that era. In addition he draws heavy influence from the Renaissance era (15th to 17th centuries CE). He is also not afraid to dive further back into human history for literary fuel. The ancient Celts, Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and Persians, among others, are all present in some form within the ASOIAF world. Nearly every culture on earth, along with a bit of its history, has a place in ASOIAF. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Phillip J Mather.

An enthralling historical narrative filled with critical leadership insights that will be of interest to a wide range of listeners - including those in government, business, education, and the arts - Forged in Crisis, by celebrated Harvard Business School historian Nancy Koehn, spotlights five masters of crisis: polar explorer Ernest Shackleton, President Abraham Lincoln, legendary abolitionist Frederick Douglass, Nazi-resisting clergyman Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and environmental crusader Rachel Carson. What do such disparate figures have in common? Why do their extraordinary stories continue to amaze and inspire? In delivering the answers to those questions, Nancy Koehn offers a remarkable template by which to judge those in our own time to whom the public has given its trust. She begins each of the book´s five sections by showing her protagonist on the precipice of a great crisis: Shackleton marooned on an Antarctic ice floe; Lincoln on the verge of seeing the Union collapse; escaped slave Douglass facing possible capture; Bonhoeffer agonizing over how to counter absolute evil with faith; Carson racing against the cancer ravaging her in a bid to save the planet. The narrative then reaches back to each person´s childhood and shows the individual growing - step by step - into the person he or she will ultimately become. Significantly, as we follow each leader´s against-all-odds journey, we begin to glean an essential truth: Leaders are not born but made. In a book dense with epiphanies, the most galvanizing one may be that the power to lead courageously resides in each of us. Whether it´s listened to as a repository of great insight or as exceptionally rendered human drama, Forged in Crisis stands as a towering achievement. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nancy Koehn.

Seventeen-year-old Bryar Rose has a problem. She is descended from one of the three magical races - shifters, fairies, or witches. That makes her one of the Magicorum, and Magicorum always follow a fairy tale life template. In the case of Bryar, that template should be Sleeping Beauty. Trouble is, Bryar is nowhere near the Sleeping Beauty life template. Not even close. She does not like birds or woodland creatures. She cannot sing a note. And she certainly cannot stand Prince Philpot, the so-called His Highness of Hedge Funds that her aunties want her to marry. Even worse, Bryar finds herself attracted to a hottie werewolf named Knox and is under attack by evil mummy-zombies. If Bryar cannot figure out who - or what - she really is, it might cost both her and Knox their lives...as well as jeopardize the very nature of magic itself. 1. Language: English.

Impossible Goals, Inevitable Successes Why are you struggling to grow your business when everyone else seems to be crushing their goals? If you needed to triple revenue within the next three years, would you know exactly how to do it? Doubling the size of your business, tripling it, even growing 10 times larger isn´t about magic. It´s not about privileges, luck, or working harder. There´s a template that the world´s fastest growing companies follow to achieve and sustain much, much faster growth. From Impossible to Inevitable details the hyper-growth playbook of companies like the record-breaking Zenefits (which skyrocketed from $1 million to $100 million in two years); Salesforce.com (the fastest growing multibillion-dollar software company); and EchoSign, aka Adobe Document Services (which catapulted from $0 to $144 million in seven years). Whether you have a $1 billion or a $100,000 business, you can use the same insights as these notable companies to learn what it really takes to break your own revenue records. For instance, one of the authors shows how he grew his income from $67,000 to $720,000 in four years while maintaining a 20 to 30 hour work week and welcoming a new child - nine times. This powerful, effective book provides a template for you to kick off your biggest growth spurt yet. This template includes the seven ingredients of hyper-growth: You´re not ready to grow until you nail a niche. Overnight success is a fairy tale. You´re not going to be magically discovered. You need sustainable systems that create predictable pipeline. Growth exposes your weaknesses, and it will cause more problems than it solves - until you make sales scalable. It´s hard to build a big business out of small deals. Figure out how to double your deal size. It´ll take years longer than you want, but don´t quit too soon. Make sure you can do the time. Yo... 1.

´´Make them laugh, make them cry, and hack to laughter. What do people go to the theatre for? An emotional exercise. I am a servant of the people. I have never forgotten that.´´ (Mary Pickford) A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history´s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors´ American Legends series, listeners can get caught up to speed on the lives of America´s most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. At the end of the 20th century, the American Film Institute compiled a list of the 25 greatest actors and actresses in Hollywood over the past 100 years, but only a select few worked all the way back in the silent era of films, before ´´talkies´´ revolutionized the industry at the end of the 1920s. Among them was Mary Pickford, who was ranked 24th, but was arguably the most influential actress when it came to creating the career template for all actresses who followed, from name changes to salary. Like many actresses of the early 20th century, ´´Little Mary´´ got her start by acting on the stage, and she eventually made it to Broadway. By the time she had finished her run there, she had caught the eye of film director D.W. Griffith, who would go on to make Birth of a Nation and was working for the Biograph at the time. Pickford figured she would best make a mark by playing as many roles as possible, to the extent that she was appearing in an average of one film per week. ´´I played scrubwomen, and secretaries, and women of all nationalities.... I decided that if I could get into as many pictures as possible, I´d become known....´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lavina Jadhwani.
