Reagan Bishop is a pusher. A licensed psychologist who stars on the Wendy Winsberg cable breakout show I Need a Push, Reagan helps participants become their best selves by urging them to overcome obstacles and change behaviors.

Her younger sister, Geri, is and always will be the Bishop family favorite. When a national network buys Reagan´s show, the pressures for unreasonably quick results and higher ratings mount. But Reagan´s a clinician, not a magician, and fears witnessing her own personal failings in prime time. (And seriously? Her family will never let her hear the end of it.) Desperate to make the show work and keep her family at bay, Reagan actually listens when the show´s New Age healer offers an unconventional solution… Record Nielsen ratings follow.

Please don´t let anything bad have happened to her, please don´t let anything have happened to my baby.... Marcus and Lena Fulford are the envy of their friends. Wealthy, attractive and successful, the couple, with their strikingly beautiful teenage daughter Amy, seem settled and content. But appearances mask a strained relationship almost at breaking point. Marcus´s latest business venture has failed, draining Lena, the major breadwinner, dry. Putting Amy into weekly boarding school and striving to get her own career back on its feet, Lena remains alone in the luxurious family house as her marriage heads towards as amicable a divorce as she and Marcus can muster, and joint custody of their only child. So when Amy arranges a sleepover with a school friend one weekend, neither parent sees the need to be in touch with her. Saturday, Sunday, Monday morning pass before Lena - seething from her first, unexpectedly confrontational, meeting with Marcus´s divorce lawyer - phones Amy. Straight to Amy´s voicemail. She must be in lessons. Lena sends a text. She waits. No reply, no contact whatsoever. It is only when Amy is reported missing from school and her friend´s mother reveals that, instead of staying with them, Amy was visiting her father - a fact vehemently denied by Marcus - that Lena contacts the police. Her daughter has not been seen since Saturday afternoon. Where is Amy? Is she alive or dead? Lies and betrayal mount as the hunt for a missing girl becomes a search for a body. 1. Language: English.

It´s been said that a good leader brings out the best in people, while a great leader helps people become something greater than they´d ever imagined they could be. Bad leaders, on the other hand, are said to be nothing but trouble: mean, cruel, twisted, creatures that make the workplace a living hell for everyone. That may all be true (we think that it us) but that doesn’t mean that we can´t learn something useful from our bad bosses. In Bob We Trust is the third collection of annotated leadership columns from Keil Hubert, the American correspondent for London-based Business Reporter. This book includes fully-annotated versions of 13 wryly humourous (with a U) ´Evil Bob´ leadership stories from Business Technology and Business Reporter Online, along with in-depth lessons-learned at the end of each column regarding how to recognize, mitigate, and escape your own bad boss. Finally, in order to keep it from being too darned depressing, Keil shares an inspirational story of a really great leader - one well worth emulating - in the original script he wrote for the last speech he gave to his troops at his military retirement ceremony. Yes, you can read all of the original columns Online, but the only place to listen to the supplementary content is here in this audiobook. That´s got to be worth the cost of a pint, innit? Ta. 1.

I got into medical school by saying I was black. I lied. Honestly, I am about as black as my sister Mindy Kaling. Once upon a time, I was an ethically challenged, hard-partying Indian-American frat boy enjoying my third year of college. That is until I realized I didn´t have the grades or test scores to get into medical school. Legitimately. Still, I was determined to be a doctor and discovered that affirmative action provided a loophole that might help. The only problem? I wasn´t a minority. So I became one. I shaved my head, trimmed my long Indian eyelashes, and applied as an African American. Not even my own frat brothers recognized me. I joined the Organization of Black Students and used my middle name, Jojo. Vijay, the Indian American frat boy, became Jojo, the African American affirmative action applicant. Not everything went as planned. During a med school interview, an African American doctor angrily confronted me for not being black. Cops harassed me. Store clerks accused me of shoplifting. Women were either scared of me or found my bald black dude look sexually mesmerizing. What started as a scam to get into med school turned into a twisted social experiment, teaching me lessons I would never have learned in the classroom. I became a serious contender at some of America´s greatest schools, including Harvard University, Washington University, University of Pennsylvania, Case Western Reserve University, George Washington University, University of Pittsburgh, Yale University, University of Rochester, University of Nebraska Omaha, and Columbia University. I interviewed at 11 schools while posing as a black man. After all that, I finally got accepted into medical school. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Spencer Cannon.
