The Soil Will Save Us by Kristin Ohlson (.M4B)

The Soil Will Save Us: How Scientists, Farmers, and Ranchers Are Tending the Soil to Reverse Global Warming by Kristin Ohlson
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 206 MB
Overview: Thousands of years of poor farming and ranching practices-and, especially, modern industrial agriculture-have led to the loss of up to 80 percent of carbon from the world’s soils. That carbon is now floating in the atmosphere, and even if we stopped using fossil fuels today, it would continue warming the planet. In The Soil Will Save Us, journalist and bestselling author Kristin Ohlson makes an elegantly argued, passionate case for "our great green hope"-a way in which we can not only heal the land but also turn atmospheric carbon into beneficial soil carbon-and potentially reverse global warming.
As the granddaughter of farmers and the daughter of avid gardeners, Ohlson has long had an appreciation for the soil. A chance conversation with a local chef led her to the crossroads of science, farming, food, and environmentalism and the discovery of the only significant way to remove carbon dioxide from the air-an ecological approach that tends not only to plants and animals but also to the vast population of underground microorganisms that fix carbon in the soil. Ohlson introduces the visionaries-scientists, farmers, ranchers, and landscapers-who are figuring out in the lab and on the ground how to build healthy soil, which solves myriad problems: Drought, erosion, air and water pollution, and food quality, as well as climate change. Her discoveries and vivid storytelling will revolutionize the way we think about our food, our landscapes, our plants, and our relationship to Earth.

The Smartest Guys in the Room By Bethany McLean (.M4B)

The Smartest Guys in the Room: The Amazing Rise and Scandalous Fall of Enron By Bethany McLean (Author), Dennis Boutsikaris (Narrator)
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 587 MB | 22 hrs and 30 mins | Unabridged
Overview: There were dozens of books about Watergate, but only All the President’s Men gave readers the full story, with all the drama and nuance and exclusive reporting. And thirty years later, if you’re going to read only one book on Watergate, that’s still the one. Today, Enron is the biggest business story of our time, and Fortune senior writers Bethany McLean and Peter Elkind are the new Woodward and Bernstein.

Remarkably, it was just two years ago that Enron was thought to epitomize a great New Economy company, with its skyrocketing profits and share price. But that was before Fortune published an article by McLean that asked a seemingly innocent question: How exactly does Enron make money? From that point on, Enron’s house of cards began to crumble. Now, McLean and Elkind have investigated much deeper, to offer the definitive book about the Enron scandal and the fascinating people behind it.

Meticulously researched and character driven, Smartest Guys in the Room takes the reader deep into Enron’s past-and behind the closed doors of private meetings. Drawing on a wide range of unique sources, the book follows Enron’s rise from obscurity to the top of the business world to its disastrous demise. It reveals as never before major characters such as Ken Lay, Jeff Skilling, and Andy Fastow, as well as lesser known players like Cliff Baxter and Rebecca Mark. Smartest Guys in the Room is a story of greed, arrogance, and deceit-a microcosm of all that is wrong with American business today. Above all, it’s a fascinating human drama that will prove to be the authoritative account of the Enron scandal.

The Quantum Story by Jim Baggott

The Quantum Story: A History in 40 Moments by Jim Baggott
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 370 MB
Overview: Utterly beautiful. Profoundly disconcerting. Quantum theory is quite simply the most successful account of the physical universe ever devised. Its concepts underpin much of the 21st-century technology that we now take for granted. But at the same time it has completely undermined our ability to make sense of the world at its most fundamental level. Niels Bohr claimed that anybody who is not shocked by the theory has not understood it. The American physicist Richard Feynman went further: he claimed that nobody understands it.
The Quantum Story begins in 1900, tracing a century of game-changing science. Popular science writer Jim Baggott first shows how, over the space of three decades, Einstein, Bohr, Heisenberg, and others formulated and refined the theory-and opened the floodgates. Indeed, since then, a torrent of ideas has flowed from the world’s leading physicists, as they explore and apply the theory’s bizarre implications. To take us from the story’s beginning to the present day, Baggott organizes his narrative around 40 turning-point moments of discovery. Many of these are inextricably bound up with the characters involved-their rivalries and their collaborations, their arguments and, not least, their excitement as they sense that they are redefining what reality means. Through the mix of story and science, we experience their breathtaking leaps of theory and experiment, as they uncover such undreamed of and mind-boggling phenomenon as black holes, multiple universes, quantum entanglement, the Higgs boson, and much more.
Brisk, clear, and compelling, The Quantum Story is science writing at its best. A compelling look at the 100-year history of quantum theory, it illuminates the idea as it reveals how generations of physicists have grappled with this monster ever since.

The Great Unknown by Marcus du Sautoy

The Great Unknown: Seven Journeys to the Frontiers of Science by Marcus du Sautoy
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 394 MB
Overview: A captivating journey to the outer reaches of human knowledge
Ever since the dawn of civilization, we have been driven by a desire to know – to understand the physical world and the laws of nature. But are there limits to human knowledge? Are some things simply beyond the predictive powers of science? Or are those challenges the next big discovery waiting to happen?
In The Great Unknown, one of the world’s most beloved mathematicians takes us into the minds of science’s greatest innovators as he probes the many deep mysteries we have yet to solve. He reminds us that major breakthroughs were often ridiculed at the time of their discovery and takes us on a whirlwind tour of seven frontiers of knowledge, where scientists are grappling with the unknown. Can you locate consciousness in the brain? Is our universe infinite? What is dark energy made of? What happens to time in space? Is it possible to beat ageing?
At once exhilarating and mind bending, The Great Unknown will challenge you to think in new ways about every aspect of the known world. It invites us to consider big questions – about who we are and the nature of God – that even the most creative scientists have yet to answer definitively.

The Baby Sleep Book: The Complete Guide to a Good Night’s Rest for the Whole Family: The Sears Parenting Library by William Sears, Robert Sears, James Sears, Martha Sears, James McKenna
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 307 MB
Overview: Everything you need to know about getting your baby or toddler to sleep – from America’s foremost baby and childcare experts
For every parent deprived of sleep by a restless infant or toddler, now there’s hope. The Baby Sleep Book is the comprehensive, reassuring, solution-filled resource that every family will want to own.
Babies don’t automatically know how to sleep through the night; they need to be taught. The Sears family has learned from decades of pediatric practice, bolstered by their own parenting experiences, that different babies have different nighttime temperaments – and, of course, different families have different lifestyles. Instead of espousing the kind of "one method fits all" approach advocated in other baby sleep guides, the Sears family explains how you can create a sleep plan that suits the needs of your entire family.
With a sharp focus on practical tools and techniques, The Baby Sleep Book covers such topics as the following:
The facts of infant sleep vs adult sleep
Figuring out where, when, and how your child sleeps best
Fail-safe methods for soothing a crying infant
How to make night nursing easier, and how to stop
Nighttime fathering tips
Whether co-sleeping makes sense for you
Nap-time strategies that work
Medical and physical causes of night waking
Sleep habits in special situations, such as traveling, teething, and illness
Like all books in the highly popular Sears Parenting Library, The Baby Sleep Book is clear, comforting, and uniquely authoritative. Its flexible sensitive approach to solving babies’ sleep problems distinguishes it as definitive – an unrivaled book that offers immediate results.
Genre: Audiobooks > Non-Fiction

The American Health Care Paradox by Elizabeth H. Bradley +

The American Health Care Paradox: Why Spending More Is Getting Us Less by Elizabeth H. Bradley, Lauren A. Taylor, Harvey V. Fineberg
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 221 MB
Overview: For decades, experts have puzzled over why the US spends more on health care but suffers poorer outcomes than other industrialized nations. Now Elizabeth H. Bradley and Lauren A. Taylor marshal extensive research, including a comparative study of health care data from 30 countries to get to the root of this paradox: We’ve left out of our tally the most impactful expenditures countries make to improve the health of their populations – investments in social services.
In The American Health Care Paradox, Bradley and Taylor illuminate how narrow definitions of health care, archaic divisions in the distribution of health and social services, and our allergy to government programs combine to create needless suffering in individual lives, even as health care spending continues to soar. They tell us how, and why, the US health care system developed as it did; examine the constraints on, and possibilities for, reform; and profile inspiring new initiatives from around the world.
