Surviving Lasts a Lifetime: A Parent's Journey Through Medical Trauma details the journey of a young mother who survives a near death experience against all odds. It chronicles the survival, recovery, and the difficult task of moving on, and integrating a new normal. Astrid wrote letters as a "guide to life" for her children in case she would not live to teach them to her own children, as the trauma brought into sharp focus life's great questions about love, family, and purpose. This book is a source and inspiration for other survivors, parents, caregivers, medical professionals, and mental health professionals dealing with such a devastating chapter to give them strength facing their own challenges. It is intended as a reminder that people are surviving all around us, and that surviving lasts a lifetime, and does not necessarily fit neatly into society's stringent guidelines and expectations for coping with any given trauma. 1.

What is The Bigs? In baseball, "the bigs" is slang for the big leagues. When you become responsible for yourself, and you are being paid to do a job, you are in the big leagues. The real world is tough, competitive, and much is expected. This is a quintessentially American story of one man's journey through his career and life. Wall Street veteran Ben Carpenter chronicles the people he met, the experiences he had, the mistakes he made, and what he learned along the way. Listeners will encounter a colorful cast of real-life characters which include Big Hank, Hoops, Sweater Girl, The Zombies, Mr. Nuts, The Cheese, Deep Throat, and The RAT. Their tales illuminate Carpenter's progress from newly minted liberal arts graduate, to the owner of an out-of-control bar in Manhattan, to the CEO of a major international investment company. While the real world can be very fun, it's also very much a battle, and that battle is not easy for anyone. The Bigs is an eye-opening audiobook with specific, comprehensive, and practical advice you won't hear anywhere else. This is a book that parents will want to listen to and give to their children - and their children will want to listen and share with their friends. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nick Podehl.

In 1790, it was not a given that the young US, bruised and healing from its struggle for independence and populated by fewer than four million inhabitants, would even survive, much less flourish. But the great adventure that came next - the exploration and settlement of the lands lying to the west and stretching to the Pacific Ocean - would build a nation where only a patchwork of Eastern seaboard colonies had existed before. The first audiobook in this series, Out Where the West Begins: Profiles, Visions, & Strategies of Early Western Business Leaders, profiled 50 individuals who made significant contributions to the economic development of a young nation. This second volume follows the saga of more than 100 influential men and women - political and military leaders, religious thinkers, civil rights proponents, suffragettes, African American pioneers, writers and artists, explorers and surveyors, architects, inventors, innovators, medical professionals, and conservationists - who together wove the story of early Western frontier America. The engaging account of their lives forms a unique tapestry of human experience. In the words of the author, “Understanding our distinctive past helps us better comprehend who we are now and who we wish to become.” 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Cummings.
