Good to Go: What the Athlete in All of Us Can Learn from the Strange Science of Recovery by Christie Aschwanden
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 231 MB
Overview: An eye-opening, myth-busting exploration of how the human body can best recover and adapt to sports and fitness training
In recent years "recovery" has become a sports and fitness buzzword. Anyone who works out or competes at any level is bombarded with the latest recovery products and services: from drinks and shakes to compression sleeves, foam rollers, electrical muscle stimulators, and sleep trackers.
In Good to Go, acclaimed FiveThirtyEight science writer Christie Aschwanden takes listeners on an entertaining and enlightening tour through this strange world. She investigates whether drinking Gatorade or beer after training helps or hinders performance, she examines the latest trends among athletes – from NFL star Tom Brady’s infrared pajamas to gymnast Simone Biles’ pneumatic compression boots to swimmer Michael Phelps’ "cupping" ritual – and she tests some of the most controversial methods herself, including cryochambers, floatation tanks, and infrared saunas.
At a time when the latest recovery products and services promise so much, Good to Go seeks answers to the fundamental question: Do any of them actually help the body recover and achieve peak performance?

Almighty by Dan Zak (.M4B)

Almighty: Courage, Resistance, and Existential Peril in the Nuclear Age by Dan Zak
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 295 MB
Overview: On a tranquil summer night in July 2012, a trio of elderly peace activists infiltrated the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Nicknamed the "Fort Knox of Uranium", Y-12 was reputedly one of the most secure nuclear weapons facilities in the world, a bastion of warhead parts that harbored hundreds of metric tons of highly enriched uranium – enough to power thousands of nuclear bombs.
The activists – a house painter, a Vietnam war veteran, and an 82-year-old Catholic nun – penetrated the complex’s exterior with alarming ease; their strongest tools were two pairs of bolt cutters and three hammers. Once inside, the pacifists hung freshly spray-painted protest banners and streaked the complex’s white walls with six baby bottles’ worth of human blood. Then they waited to be arrested.
With the symbolic break-in, the Plowshares activists had hoped to draw attention to a costly military-industrial complex that stockpiled deadly nukes and drones. But they also triggered a political, legal, and moral firestorm when they defeated a multimillion-dollar security system. What if they had been terrorists with a deadly motive? Why does the United States continue to possess such large amounts of nuclear weaponry in the first place? And above all, are we safe?
In Almighty, Washington Post reporter Dan Zak explores these questions by reexamining the 70-year history of America’s nuclear weapons programs and its attendant madness. At a time when we are rightly concerned about proliferation in such nations as North Korea and Iran, the United States’ massive arsenal is plagued by its own questions of security. This truly life-or-death issue is unraveled in Zak’s eye-opening and terrifying account. From the influential biophysicist who first educated the public on atomic energy to the prophet who predicted the emergence of the Oak Ridge facilities to the jury who convicted the Plowshares activists under the Sabotage Act, Zak’s Almighty reshapes the accepted narratives surrounding America’s atomic weapons.
Powerful, illuminating, and ambitious, Almighty makes the case that, more so than any other global peril, our greatest modern-day threat of nuclear disaster begins at home.

Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 802mb
Overview: A former mercenary turned blind priest, Ash is running from his amoral past – a victim of a power-hungry corporation, Titanus, which used him for mysterious experiments, discarding him when he lost his sight.

Through its experimentation, Titanus unwittingly created a dark mirror world called Shade, a place where no human can survive – except for Ash. By opening a rift, Ash can escape into Shade, where his vision is restored, his wounds heal more quickly, and, if necessary, he can drag his attackers in with him, turning them to dust.

While attempting to implement a global teleportation system, Titanus makes a grave error and opens several dangerous rifts, which threaten to tear the planet apart. Believing Ash to be the only one able to close them, Titanus exploits those Ash cares about most to coerce him into cooperating.

But the creatures they have inadvertently released from Shade will be the least of their worries.

Requirements: M4B Player, 121mb, 4 hrs 26 mins
Overview: New York Times best-selling author J. Sterling brings you a brand new stand-alone romance that will excite and delight you. Falling for your rival has never been more fun!

They say you always want what you can’t have. And what I want is Julia La Bella. I’m supposed to hate her with every fiber of my being, but I’ll let you in on a little secret…. I don’t. Not even close. The woman is stunning. She’s also a colossal pain in my…you-know-what.

Julia’s my number-one competitor in the wine industry and she also happens to live next door. Not a good combination for a guy who’s been told to "stay away from her" his whole life. Our parents can’t stand each other: a bitter, outdated rivalry with no end in sight. Which doesn’t fare well for my heart. Or my loins. Yeah, I went there.

What can I say: I want her. I’ve always wanted her.

So how am I going to convince her to see me as the super-hot, smart, irresistible guy next door, instead of the one person on earth she supposedly can’t stand? I’m not entirely sure, but we’re about to find out. Wish me luck.
