In this deeply personal collection of essays, creator of the The Conversation Amanda de Cadenet shares the hard-won advice and practical insights she´s gained through her experiences as a businesswoman, friend, wife, and mother. Amanda is on a mission to facilitate conversations that allow all women to be seen, heard, and understood. Through her multimedia platform The Conversation, she interviews some of today´s most badass women - from Hillary Clinton to Lady Gaga - in no-holds-barred conversations that get to the heart of what means to be female. Now, in It´s Messy, Amanda offers listeners an extension of that conversation, inviting them into her life and sharing her own story. From childhood fame to a high-profile marriage (and divorce) to teen motherhood to the sexism that threatened to end her career before it started, Amanda shares the good, the bad, and the messy of her life, synthesizing lessons she´s learned along the way. Through it all, she offers an original perspective as a feminist on the front lines of celebrity culture. Edgy, irreverent, poignant, and provocative, It´s Messy addresses the issues, concerns, and experiences relevant to women today. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Amanda de Cadenet.

People ask Kelly Osbourne all the time: ´´What´s your secret?´´ Kelly Osbourne may not always have been a typical role model, but no one can say that her perspective isn´t hard won after spending three decades in the spotlight: from growing up completely exposed to the heavy metal scene - replete with crazy antics most listeners have only begun to hear about - to spending her teenage years as the wild middle child of an even wilder Ozzy Osbourne, to the family´s popular stint on their wacky eponymous reality show. Since then Osbourne has forged her own path as a style icon and powerful woman in the media who isn´t afraid to tell it like it is and be honest with her fans. But being the daughter of a music legend hasn´t always been glamorous; growing up Osbourne is an experience that Kelly wouldn´t trade, but there are battle scars, and she is finally now ready to embrace and reveal their origins. Told as a series of letters to various people and places in her life, There Is No F--king Secret gives listeners an intimate look at the stories and influences that have shaped Osbourne´s highly speculated-about life, for better or for worse. The stories will make listeners´ jaws drop, but ultimately they will come away empowered to forge their own paths to confidence, no matter how deranged and out of control they may be, and to learn the ultimate lesson: that there just is no f--king secret. 1.

Sometimes life provides you with a much needed wake up call - a realization that you’re cruising down the wrong path. Having experienced obstacles and major challenges, author Shannon Jamail learned many of life’s lessons in the school of hard knocks. Through toil and toughness, she became a badass businesswoman, rocking it out in the corporate world but caught in a constant cycle of ego, judgment, comparison, stress, anxiety, and internal conflict. After clambering into success, Shannon realized that her life was full of material wealth but empty of truth and real purpose. Shifting gears, Jamail dedicated her life to holistic wellness, mental health, and diving deep into the exploration of the shadow side of the self. This book chronicles her adventures in moving from darkness to light - with a few detours along the way.Surrender is self-help with a side of sass. Written in a fresh, funny, authentic voice, Surrender reminds the listener that even in the dark moments of life, we are not alone nor helpless. Author and therapist turned coach Shannon Jamail weaves hilarious, relatable anecdotes of fall-on-your-face spiritual shortcoming moments with practical and relevant tools for changing your habits, thoughts, and life - one somewhat clumsy, sometimes hysterical step at a time - to obtain the fulfillment we all are truly seeking. 1.

Life sometimes is hard. There are challenges. There are difficulties. There is pain. As a younger man I sought to avoid them and only ever caused myself more of the same. These days I choose to face life head on - and I have become a comet. I arc across the sky of my life and the harder times are the friction that lets the worn and tired bits drop away. It´s a good way to travel; eventually I will wear away all resistance until all there is left of me is light. I can live towards that end. (Richard Wagamese, Embers)In this carefully curated selection of everyday reflections, Richard Wagamese finds lessons in both the mundane and sublime as he muses on the universe, drawing inspiration from working in the bush-sawing and cutting and stacking wood for winter as well as the smudge ceremony to bring him closer to the Creator. Embers is perhaps Richard Wagamese´s most personal volume to date. Honest, evocative, and articulate, he explores the various manifestations of grief, joy, recovery, beauty, gratitude, physicality, and spirituality-concepts many find hard to express. But for Wagamese, spirituality is multifaceted. From this audiobook, listeners will find hard-won and concrete wisdom on how to feel the joy in the everyday things. Wagamese does not seek to be a teacher or guru, but these observations made along his own journey to become, as he says, ´´a spiritual bad-ass,´´ make inspiring listening. 1. Language: English.

The New York Times Best Seller With You. Do not listen if you are sensitive to disturbing scenes, as the next novel, Torn from You, is a very dark romance. Sculpt is an illegal fighter. He´s also the lead singer of a local rock band. No one knows his real name. And from the moment I met him, he made me forget mine. In order to convince Sculpt to give me self-defense lessons, I had to follow his one rule: no complaining, or he´d walk. I didn´t think it would be a problem. I could handle a few bruises. What I hadn´t anticipated was landing on my back with Sculpt on top of me and my entire body burning up for him. I tried to ignore it. I failed, of course. And having a hot, tattooed badass on top of me week after week, acting completely immune to what he was doing to me - it was frustrating as hell, so I broke his rule. I complained. Then he kissed me. Author´s note: This novella is a prequel. Listening to it before Torn from You is not required but is highly recommended. Warning: huge cliffhanger. Like huge! However, With You is released on the same day as Torn from You the novel. Due to sexual content and strong language, not recommended for listeners under 18. 1. Language: English.
