An economic horror story: The complete meltdown of a major modern country’s financial system, and its disastrous effects on every aspect of society. A hundred years ago, many theorists believed - just as they did at the beginning of our 21st century - that the world had reached a state of economic perfection, a never-before-seen human interdependence that would lead to universal growth and prosperity. Then, as now, the German mark was one of the most trusted currencies in the world. Yet the early years of the Weimar Republic in Germany witnessed the most calamitous meltdown of a developed economy in modern times. The Downfall of Money will tell anew the dramatic story of the hyperinflation that saw the mark - worth 4.2 to the dollar in 1914 - plunge until it traded at over 4 trillion to 1 by the autumn of 1923. The story of the Weimar Republic’s financial crisis clearly resonates today, when the world is again anxious about what money is, what it means, and how we can judge if its value is true. It is a trajectory of events uncomfortably relevant for our own uncertain world. Frederick Taylor - one of the leading historians of Germany writing today - explores the causes of the crisis and what the collapse meant to ordinary people and traces its connection to the dark decades that followed. Drawing on a wide range of sources and accessibly presenting vast amounts of research, The Downfall of Money is a timely and chilling exploration of a haunting episode in history. 1.

The definitive account of Bill Cosby´s transition from revered father figure to convicted criminal, told by a veteran crime reporter and former senior writer for People Magazine. Bill Cosby´s decades-long career as a sweater-wearing, wholesome TV dad came to a swift and stunning end on April 26, 2018, when he was convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand. The mounting allegations against Bill Cosby - more than 60 women have come forward to accuse him of similar crimes - and his ultimate conviction were a shock to Americans, who wanted to cleave to their image of Cosby as a pudding-pop hero. Award-winning journalist and former People Magazine senior writer Nicki Weisensee Egan was the first reporter to dig into the story when Constand went to the police in 2005. Other news organizations looked away, but Egan doggedly investigated the case, developing ties with entrenched sources and discovering incriminating details that would ultimately come to influence the prosecution. In her debut audiobook, Chasing Cosby, Egan shares her firsthand account of Cosby´s 13-year run from justice. She tells us how Cosby planned and executed his crimes and how Hollywood alliances and law enforcement knew what Cosby was doing but did nothing to stop him. A veteran crime reporter, Egan also explores the cultural and social issues that influenced the case, delving into the psychological calculations of a serial predator and into the psyche of a nation that fervently wanted to put their faith in the innocence of ´´American´s Dad´´. Rich in character and rife with dramatic revelations about popular culture, media power, and our criminal system, Egan´s account will inform and fascinate listeners with its candid telling of humanity´s most enduring tale: the rise and fall of a cultural icon.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible L 1.

Brought to you by Penguin.One of the last major stories on the Third Reich that remains largely untold is that of the extraordinary wave of suicides, carried out not just by much of the Nazi leadership, but by thousands of ordinary Germans, in the Second World War´s closing period. Some of these were provoked by terror in the face of advancing Soviet troops or by personal guilt, but many could not be explained in such relatively straightforward terms. Florian Huber´s remarkable book, a bestseller in Germany, confronts this terrible phenomenon. Other countries have suffered defeat, but not responded in the same way. What drove whole families, who in many cases had already withstood years of deprivation, aerial bombing and deaths in battle, to do this? In a brilliantly written, thoughtful and original work, Huber sees the entire project of the Third Reich as a sequence of almost overwhelming emotions and scenes for many Germans. He describes some of the key events which shaped the period from the First World War to the end of the Second, showing how the sheer intensity, glamour and ferocity of Hitler´s regime swept along millions. For over 12 years a relentless and terrible drama shaped German life and its sudden end was, for thousands of people, simply impossible to absorb. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sam Peter Jackson.

For more than a decade, Marion Jones was hailed as the ´´the fastest woman on the planet´´. At the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, she became the first woman ever to win five medals at one Olympics. That same year, the Associated Press and ESPN named her Athlete of the Year. She was on the cover of Vogue and Time. She seemed to have it all - fame, fortune, talent, and international acclaim. Now she is a convicted felon. The trouble started in 2003 when she lied to federal agents about her use of a performance-enhancing drug and her knowledge of a check-fraud scam. In 2007, no longer able to live with the lies, she admitted the truth. In a sad end to what seemed like a storybook career, she was stripped of her medals, and her track-and-field records were wiped from the books. She was incarcerated at Carswell federal prison in Fort Worth, Texas - a prison known for its violence and abuse. While there, she kept herself in shape and her sanity intact by running on a dirt track and a treadmill in the prison´s improvised weight room. But her imprisonment was not the end for Marion Jones. In fact, it marked a new beginning. She is now using her story to change the lives of people the world over and inspire others who, like her, face obstacles that seem insurmountable. On the Right Track is the candidly told story of how Marion came to grips with her lies and the consequences of her actions, and how she found meaning in all of it. What she tells her children and has now applied to her own life is that when you make a mistake, you admit it, you accept the consequences, you move on, you make the wrong a right. She teaches her children and others to take a break and pause before making impulsive and potentially harmful decisions. At the heart of this book are real issues that we all face: learning to grow through pain; making decisions that will help us far into the future; overcoming failure and discouragement; and 1.

Having the desire to achieve and stay positive provides people with the atmosphere they need to make it all possible. Times of difficulties tend to produce a sense of defeat if we keep thinking about what had just occurred, rather than looking at it as a way to improve. It comes from not reflecting on the negative aspects of what had occurred, but reflecting on the positive aspects that may occur as a result. Hard times in life will inevitably happen to all of us, but when you look at the situations that cause you to fall, you will learn something in life. One of the stories of falling is the story of the Kingpin, Joaquin Archivaldo ´´El Chapo´´ Guzman Loera. His desire for film fame led to his downfall. His story is different from any story in life, and his downfall is different as well. His downfall was a good thing for many people in Mexico, along with other countries. This drug lord attempted to escape several times, but never did become truly successful. Let us take a closer look at why and how. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Millian Quinteros.
