´´What does it mean to be human?´´ asks acclaimed psychologist and talk-show host Dan Gottlieb at the beginning of this award-winning book. The answers are within. With the gentle and guiding voice that has endeared him to millions of readers and listeners, Dan describes how we gain deeper wisdom and understanding from the unexpected events in our lives. A classic storyteller, Dan provides tender and deeply affecting ´´lessons” that reveal his own very human vulnerability as well as the love and generosity of others. These revelations come from an author who has experienced many forms of loss in his own life. From the moment he suffered a spinal cord injury that left him quadriplegic at the age of 33, Dan found himself facing the kinds of questions that most people encounter over the course of a lifetime. In the process of rebuilding his career, his family, and his life, Dan made discoveries about what all humans have in common, including a longing for love, understanding, and security. And he learned that the speed of life only takes us further away from what we long for. In this audio, Dan is unstintingly generous in sharing the thoughts and feelings that have touched the lives of so many. From ´´Our Orphanhood” (why the universality of loneliness can make us feel less alone) and ´´We, the Wounded” (how wounds may be inevitable, but so is healing) to ´´What Our Children See” (how parental stress can shape a child’s future) and ´´Holding My Mother’s Hand” (a moving recollection on the death of a parent), Dan reflects on the challenges that all of us face as humans and the feelings that, too often, we do not allow to surface.And, finally, Dan succeeds in answering the primary question: What does it mean to be human? His answers—challenging and reassuring, humorous and transcendent—are sure to touch the heart of every listener. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Gottlieb.

Distinguished diplomat Ambassador Wendy Sherman brings listeners inside the negotiating room to teach how to put diplomatic values like courage, power, and persistence to work in their own lives.Few people have sat across from the Iranians and the North Koreans at the negotiating table. Wendy Sherman has done both. During her time as the lead US negotiator of the historic Iran nuclear deal and throughout her distinguished career, Wendy Sherman has amassed tremendous expertise in the most pressing foreign policy issues of our time. Throughout her life - from growing up in civil-rights-era Baltimore to stints as a social worker, campaign manager, and business owner to advising multiple presidents - she has relied on values that have shaped her approach to work and leadership: authenticity, effective use of power and persistence, acceptance of change, and commitment to the team. Not for the Faint of Heart takes listeners inside the world of international diplomacy and into the mind of one of our most effective negotiators - often the only woman in the room. She shows why good work in her field is so hard to do, and how we can learn to apply core skills of diplomacy to the challenges in our own lives. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wendy R. Sherman.

Even a hot mess needs a happily ever after. With the quiet help of his wealthy family, Sebastian ´´Baz´´ Acker has successfully kept his painful past at bay. But as the end of college draws near, his friends - his buffer zone - are preparing to move on while his own life is at a crippling standstill. With loneliness bearing down on him, Baz hooks up - then opens up - with Elijah Prince, the guy Baz took a bullet for last year. The aftershocks of their one-night stand leave giant cracks in Baz´s carefully constructed armor. For the first time, the prospect isn´t terrifying. Accustomed to escaping his demons by withdrawing into his imagination, Elijah isn´t used to having a happy herd of friends. He´s even less comfortable as the object of a notorious playboy´s affections. Yet all signs seem to indicate this time happiness might be within his grasp. When Baz´s mother runs for a highly sought-after public office, the media hounds drag Baz´s and Elijah´s pasts into the light. In the blinding glare, Baz and Elijah face the ultimate test: discovering if they´re stronger together...or apart.
