Mark Twain’s daughter Susy wrote: ´´Papa…doesn’t like to go to church at all, why I never understood, until just now, he told us the other day that he couldn’t bear to hear any one talk but himself, but that he could listen to himself talk for hours without getting tired, of course he said this in joke, but I’ve no dought [sic] it was founded on truth.´´ Here is one of the great autobiographies of the English language - exuberant, wonderfully contemporary in spirit, by a man twice as large as life who—he said so himself—had no trouble remembering everything that had ever happened to him and a lot of things besides. Nothing ever happened to Mark Twain in a small way. His adventures were invariably fraught with drama. Success and failure for him were equally spectacular. And so he roared down the years, feuding with publishers, being a sucker for inventors, always learning wisdom at the point of ruin, and always relishing the absurd spectacle of humankind, which he regarded with a blend of vitriol and affection. 1.

Why Wall Street Matters , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, ...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A timely, counterintuitive defense of Wall Street and the big banks as the invisible - albeit flawed - engines that power our ideas and should be made to work better for all of us. Maybe you think the banks should be broken up and the bankers should be held accountable for the financial crisis in 2008. Maybe you hate the greed of Wall Street but know that it´s important to the proper functioning of the world economy. Maybe you don´t really understand Wall Street, and phrases such as credit default swap make your eyes glaze over. Maybe you are utterly confused by the fact that after attacking Wall Street mercilessly during his campaign, Donald Trump has surrounded himself with Wall Street veterans. But if you like your smartphone or your widescreen TV, your car or your morning bacon, your pension or your 401(k), then - whether you know it or not - you are a fan of Wall Street. William D. Cohan is no knee-jerk advocate for Wall Street and the big banks. He´s one of America´s most respected financial journalists and the progressive best-selling author of House of Cards. He has long been critical of the bad behavior that plagued much of Wall Street in the years leading up to the 2008 financial crisis, and because he spent 17 years as an investment banker on Wall Street, he is an expert on its inner workings as well. But in recent years he´s become alarmed by the cheap shots and ceaseless vitriol directed at Wall Street´s bankers, traders, and executives - the people whose job it is to provide capital to those who need it, the grease that keeps our economy humming. In this brisk, no-nonsense narrative, Cohan reminds us of the good these institutions do - and the dire consequences for us all if the essential role they play in making our lives better is carelessly curtailed. 1.

Zadig ou la Destinée, Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 135min
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Zadig ou la Destinée est le conte philosophique majeur de Voltaire. C´est à la fois un concentré d´humour, une critique au vitriol de la société du XVIIIe, et une réflexion cruciale sur ce que cela signifie d´être heureux. Le jeune Zadig a en effet tout pour l´être : il est beau, riche et vertueux, et s´apprête à épouser la plus belle de Babylone. Mais la destinée a d´autres plans en réserve, et notre jeune philosophe apprendra à ses dépens que le bonheur ne dépend pas uniquement de nous. Trahi par sa fiancée, traîné en justice par des canailles, menacé par des fanatiques religieux et secouru par un ange, Zadig traversera des épreuves rocambolesques - toutes l´occasion pour Voltaire d´exprimer tout son génie, sa cruauté, sa gaieté et sa haine de la sottise humaine. 1.

In this hour, Jack Abramoff. He’s hardly a murderer. But to many in the Beltline, he’s the devil incarnate. Senator Conrad Burns, said ´´I wish he’d never been born.” Congresswoman Deborah Price said, ´´He is a creep, and we hate him.” Paul Begala summed it up when he said on Crossfire ´´Jack Abramoff, he’s scum.” How did this guy earn such vitriol? Jack Abramoff was the notorious lobbyist at the center of one of Washington’s most far-reaching corruption scandals.He served four years for fraud, tax evasion and conspiracy to bribe public officials. His testimony brought down dozens of other public and elected officials. And he still owes 44 million dollars in restitution. Abramoff is out of jail now, and he told Anne Strainchamps he intends to spend the rest of his life making amends.Next, there’s one devil we NEVER sympathize with: the terrorist. But... Hold on. Not so fast, says filmmaker Marshall Curry. His documentary If a Tree Falls follows Daniel McGowan – a convicted terrorist… currently serving time. McGowan used arson as political protest with The Earth Liberation Front – a group the FBI considers America’s number one domestic terrorist threat.After that, there´s a biblical concept we’ve been talking about – redemption. The dictionary defines it as deliverance from sin. Atonement for guilt. But are there – should there be – limits to the kind of sins that can be redeemed? What about mass murder? And finally, Jim Fleming responds to the documentary film If a Tree Falls that follows Daniel McGowan – a convicted terrorist… currently serving time. McGowan used arson as political protest with The Earth Liberation Front – a group the FBI considers America’s number one domestic terrorist threat. [Broadcast Date: April 5, 2013] 1.

In the wake of tragic shootings in Newtown and Aurora, the anti-gun lobby has launched a campaign of lies, distortion, misrepresentation, and emotional manipulation that is breathtaking in its vitriol and its denial of basic facts. Their goal is to take away our Second Amendment rights and then disarm law-abiding Americans. Emily Miller tells her personal story of how being a single, female victim of a home invasion drove her to try to obtain a legally registered gun in Washington, D.C. The narrative - sometimes shocking, other times hilarious in its absurdity - gives the listener a real-life understanding of how gun-control laws only make it more difficult for honest, law-abiding people to get guns, while violent crime continues to rise. Using facts and newly uncovered research, Miller exposes the schemes politicians on Capitol Hill, in the White House, and around the country are using to deny people their Second Amendment rights. She exposes the myths that gun grabbers and liberal media use to get new laws passed that infringe on our right to keep and bear arms. The gun rights debate isn´t just about firearms. It´s about protecting a fundamental right that is enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. It´s about politicians who lie, manipulate, and outright break existing laws to get what they want. It´s about President Obama wanting a bigger federal government to control you. Not just your guns - you. The fight for gun rights is the fight for freedom. Emily Miller says stand up and fight back now because your Second Amendment will only be the first to go. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carla Mercer-Meyer.

Notre monde n´est qu´apparence. Et dans cet univers codé et réservé aux silhouettes jeunes et belles qui hantent les pages des magazines, nombreuses sont les femmes qui ne trouvent pas leur place. C´est le cas de Clotilde, une héroïne pas comme les autres puisqu´elle est pourvue d´une physionomie qualifiée dès sa petite enfance de ´´grosse, pataude, maladroite et laide´´. Au regard de cette étiquette qui lui colle à la peau, Clotilde s´est réfugiée dans un quotidien où elle tente de disparaître pour ne pas déranger le monde qui tourne sans elle. Tête baissée et corps enseveli sous une peau gonflée de kilos superflus, elle avance dans la vie à pas lents, avec une seule certitude, celle de ne pas avoir de place dans cette société. Son installation à Bordeaux, sa ville natale va l´entraîner dans de nouvelles aventures. Une seconde naissance. La découverte de voisines des plus étonnantes. Drôles, fantaisistes, et en quête d´un bonheur incertain. Puis, l´amour d´un enfant et qui sait, celui d´un homme ? Une nouvelle existence, presque entièrement réglée dans un quartier où l´on observe à la loupe et parfois au vitriol la vie des autres. La recherche d´un travail va la conduire par le plus heureux des hasards à pénétrer un cercle bien fermé, celui de l´art contemporain. C´est donc dans un musée en quête de création et d´esthétisme que Clotilde va s´épanouir. Un hymne à l´amitié, à la culture et à la différence. Une écriture décomplexée et vive qui fait l´éloge de la disgrâce. 1. French. Marie-Christine Letort. http://samples.audible.de/bk/sixt/000610/bk_sixt_000610_sample.mp3.

That a Jew living in Nazi Berlin survived the Holocaust at all is surprising. That he was a homosexual and a teenage leader in the resistance and yet survived is amazing. But that he endured the ongoing horror with an open heart, with love and without vitriol, and has written about it so beautifully is truly miraculous. This is Gad Beck´s story. 1. Language: English.

Four men in a rowboat make an historic attempt on the Northwest Passage to focus global attention on an environmental catastrophe. ´´Vallely transports the reader to places few will ever go: the very edges of the earth and of human endurance.´´ (Evan Solomon) In this gripping first-hand account, four seasoned adventurers navigate a sophisticated, high-tech rowboat across the Northwest Passage. One of the ´´last firsts´´ remaining in the adventure world, this journey is only possible because of the dramatic impacts of global warming in the high Arctic, which provide an ironic opportunity to draw attention to the growing urgency of climate change. Along the way, the team repeatedly face life-threatening danger from storms unparalleled in their ferocity and unpredictability and bears witness to unprecedented changes in the Arctic habitat and inhabitants, while weathering gale-force vitriol from climate change deniers who have taken to social media to attack them and undermine their efforts. 1.
