Learn about Route 66 with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Route 66 is arguably the most famous road in the United States of America. Stretching 2,448 miles across much of the country, from Chicago in the East to Los Angeles in the West, it was also America's longest road. As it wound its way across the remarkable scenery of America, Route 66 originally passed through the states of Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. In the early 1920s, entrepreneurs Cyrus Avery and John Woodruff conceived the idea of building a massive highway that linked Chicago to Los Angeles. Their inspiration sprung from the changing needs of the American people. The nation needed to be more accessible to its inhabitants. While there were already highways in America at the time, none were as big, and most excluded rural communities. Also known as "Highway 66", building of the road began in 1926.

From best selling author Natalie Goldberg ( Writing Down the Bones), here is the story of her life as a spiritual seeker struggling to "free the writer within," a vividly told odyssey that takes you from the 1950s schoolyards of Long Island to the high plains of Taos to the Zen temples of Japan. Threaded with the story of Goldberg's 12-year relationship with legendary Zen master Katagiri Roshi, Long Quiet Highway illustrates the challenges - and rewards - that unfold when a Western student seeks a teacher of Eastern wisdom. As she puts it, "In the West, a teacher imparts knowledge to a student. In the East, a teacher transmits not more or less than his or her being." In a never-before-published interview, Goldberg describes the process of finding the right teacher, and speaks out about the problems that can arise from this uniquely close relationship. Observant and relentlessly honest, Long Quiet Highway starts out as a reflection on the people, places, and experiences that helped Natalie Goldberg discover the transformational power of writing. Soon it crystallizes into a greater work - a winding koan that cuts through sentiment to get at the truth of the spiritual life and the discipline needed to achieve it. 1. Language: English.

Do you know what to do when stopped and questioned by the police - in your car, on the streets or in your home? If you answered "NO" to this question - you need to hear this audiobook! Not only should you read this book but you should tell everyone you love and care about to read it also. Do you trust the police? The goal is to arm yourself with the knowledge and power you need so you don't become just another victim. Not only should young males be weary of actions by the police but what about sexual profiling in this country? Women who often drive alone are at just a higher risk of being accosted by the police as others. Women are just as likely to be profiled as men by local, state and federal law enforcement officers especially since the creation of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS.gov) in 2003. Many women will no longer stop when directed by a police officer to pull over. Some will call 911 and ask for additional police to come to the scene and refuse to open their windows until backup police arrive. Cops are known to rape or extort women for sex during highway pullovers. The situation is badly deteriorating. It comes as no surprise that unstable, aggressive bullies gravitate to police work, and quite a few are sexual predators. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Spencer Bryant.

Shotguns and Stagecoaches tells the true stories of the Wild West heroes who guarded the iconic Wells Fargo stagecoaches and trains, battling colorful thieves, vicious highwaymen, and robbers armed with explosives. The phrase "riding shotgun" was no teenage game to the men who guarded stagecoaches and trains in the Western frontier. Armed with sawed-off double-barreled shotguns and an occasional revolver, these express messengers guarded valuable cargo through lawless terrain. They were tough, fighting men who risked their lives every time they climbed into the front boot of a Concord coach. Boessenecker introduces soon-to-be iconic personalities like "Chips" Hodgkins, an express rider known for his white mule and his ability to outrace his competitors, and Henry Johnson, the first Wells Fargo detective. Their lives weren't just one shootout after another - their encounters with desperadoes were won just as often with quick wits and memorized-by-heart knowledge of the land. The highway robbers also get their due. It wouldn't be a story about the Wild West without Black Bart, the most infamous stagecoach robber of all time, and Butch Cassidy's gang, America's most legendary train robbers. Through the Gold Rush and the early days of delivery with horses and saddlebags, to the heyday of stagecoaches and huge shipments of gold, and finally the rise of the railroad and the robbers who concocted unheard-of schemes to loot trains, Wells Fargo always had courageous men to protect its treasure. Their unforgettable bravery and ingenuity make this audiobook a thrilling listen. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alex Hyde-White.

One of the most acclaimed modern American novelists, Scott Spencer captures the intensity of human passion - and its capacity to both destroy and redeem - with unparalleled precision and insight. Now, in his most stunning novel yet, this wry, witty, and deeply sensitive writer returns to the territory of his New York Times best seller A Ship Made of Paper, in a gripping and provocative psychological thriller of morality and manhood, choice and fate.Paul has been on his own since he was a teenager, leading a life of freedom and independence, beholden to no one and nothing. Fearless, resolute, and guided by his own private moral code, he has hunted for food in Alaska, fought forest fires, and been deputized in a manhunt for a kidnapper in South Dakota.Once he thought his life would have no particular rhyme or reason, touched only by transient strangers. Then he meets the beautiful, intelligent, loving Kate Ellis and her daughter, Ruby, who offer order and constancy. But Paul is a man of deep convictions, and the compromises we all make to get along in the world elude him.On his way home after rejecting a job remodeling a luxurious Manhattan apartment, Paul stops to gather his thoughts at a state park just off the highway. Instead of peace, he finds a man savagely beating a dog, and in a few fateful moments Paul is plunged into a world of violence and onto a tumultuous journey of self-knowledge, guilt, and redemption.With the psychological acuity and razor-sharp prose for which he has been celebrated, award-winning novelist Scott Spencer once again takes us on an unforgettable journey of manhood lost and found. 1.

One of the most well-written business books I've read in the last decade.” — Angelique Rewers, CEO of The Corporate AgentThe Craft reveals the deep secret to true corporate innovation, growth and transformation:Your success will be determined by your ability to decode the underlying beliefs, values and attitudes of those who sit across the table from you.How your board members, investors, customers, partners and employees perceive, react and think under differing situations will either unlock the exponential financial value harbored within your company – or, block it. Managing these deeper codes is a craft which eludes too many CEOs and senior executives. As a result, they misplay the most critical inflection points where real financial value can be created – including enterprise sales, M&A transactions, financings, exits, reorganizations and negotiations. The Craft sets forth the techniques and methods for integrating this knowledge and understanding into the corporate strategies of global companies, mid-market leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators.Chris Mailander is the CEO of Ironheart Corporate Advisory. He has worked across five continents and nine industries helping CEOs, leaders of nations and global investors navigate their most critical moments – while creating billions of dollars in new financial value for the companies and economies they lead.“The Craft is a playbook for corporate executives seeking to become the kind of ‘super-athletes’ who have the ability to redefine the entire game.” — Dana Frix, former managing partner of global law firm UNKNOWN N N ©2019 Chris Mailander;(P)2019 Chris Mailander http://www.audible.de/pd/B07SD4261Q?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true http://www.audible.de/pd/B07SD4261Q?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true Reframing Healthcare: A Roadmap for Creating Disruptive Change (Unabridged) 20.95 AVAILABLE Reframing Healthcare: A Roadmap for Creating Disruptive Change (Unabridged) Reframing Healthcare: A Roadmap for Creating Disruptive Change (Unabridged) Zeev E.

Do you get disappointed and disillusioned when you see your plans topple like a pack of cards? Some folks seem to have everything - wealth, health, success, happiness, and relationships - everything in their life is perfect, while you are barely able to scrape through life. Life doesn’t seem fair, isn’t it? Success is not destiny. It is a decision - the decision to be more self-disciplined, focused, and purposeful! Success is not as much about luck and fortune as it is about a decision we make. Self-discipline is your highway to success. It is the difference between, “I could have achieved this”, and “Yes, I have achieved this”. Successful people are able to leverage the power of self-discipline to optimize their productivity, make good use of their time, practice self-control, and be in the driver’s seat where their actions are concerned. They are not driven by events, circumstances, or other people. They hold the steering wheel and map of their life and determine the course of their life in the direction that they desire. The good news is self-discipline is not a magic wand available to a selected few. Anyone can practice greater self-discipline with consistency, perseverance, smart strategies, and effort. If you have a bad habit that is stopping you from accomplishing your goals, you can start giving it up today. If you have self-limiting or negative thoughts that are restricting you from achieving the success you are capable of accomplishing, you can discard those thoughts starting today. The key to your success in your hands alone! Your words, thoughts, actions, and habits define your ultimate destiny!This audiobook is the route map for your success.
