´The most important book about our economy and society to be published in my lifetime´ Irvine Welsh From Paul Mason, the award-winning Channel 4 presenter, Postcapitalism is a guide to our era of seismic economic change, and how we can build a more equal society. Over the past two centuries or so, capitalism has undergone continual change - economic cycles that lurch from boom to bust - and has always emerged transformed and strengthened. Surveying this turbulent history, Paul Mason wonders whether today we are on the brink of a change so big, so profound, that this time capitalism itself, the immensely complex system by which entire societies function, has reached its limits and is changing into something wholly new. At the heart of this change is information technology: a revolution that, as Mason shows, has the potential to reshape utterly our familiar notions of work, production and value; and to destroy an economy based on markets and private ownership - in fact, he contends, it is already doing so. In this groundbreaking, Sunday Times top ten book, Mason shows how, from the ashes of the recent financial crisis, we have the chance to create a more socially just and sustainable global economy.
Death is the easy way out. Still clinging rabidly to power, the Elites spin lies of prejudice and hatred, stoking the flames of war. The sole driving force toward peace, Mira, had sacrificed everything. But her strength alone was not enough. It will take the strength of many to finish what she started. As the world lurches toward war, each party has much to lose. Human. Vampire. Otherkin. The only outcomes are peace or death. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kerri McCann.

In this Footbook, Phil Smith (Mytho, Crab Man) extends his critical account of the gentle walking arts to the predatory lurch of the living dead. The author has been a keen observer of the zombie mythos for the past 35 years, and here he draws on the massof plots, images and metaphors that can be found swarming in zombie movies and comics. Instead of treating zombie media as a kind of parallel universe, he concentrates on the normality of the zombie apocalypse - showing how zombies have been used to depict, slave labour, wage labour, the consumer, the dispossesed, the disenfranchised and the underprivileged, and then moving on to explain how much more complicated it is than that.
What John Berger did to ways of seeing, well-known indie musician Damon Krukowski does to ways of listening in this lively guide to the transition from analog to digital culture. Having made his name in the late 1980s as a member of the indie band Galaxie 500, Damon Krukowski has watched cultural life lurch from analog to digital. And as an artist who has weathered the transition, he has challenging, urgent questions for both creators and consumers about what we have thrown away in the process. Are our devices leaving us lost in our own headspace even as they pinpoint our location? Does the long reach of digital communication come at the sacrifice of our ability to gauge social distance? Do streaming media discourage us from listening closely? Are we hearing each other fully in this new environment? Rather than simply rejecting the digital disruption of cultural life, Krukowski uses the sound engineer´s distinction of signal and noise to reexamine what we have lost as a technological culture, looking carefully at what was valuable in the analog realm so we can hold on to it. Taking a set of experiences from the production and consumption of music that have changed since the analog era - the disorientation of headphones, flattening of the voice, silence of media, loudness of mastering, and manipulation of time - as a basis for a broader exploration of contemporary culture, Krukowski gives us a brilliant meditation and guide to keeping our heads amid the digital flux. Think of it as plugging in without tuning out. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Damon Krukowski. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/030366de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.

I never really knew just how life-saving mouth-to-mouth resuscitation could be. By all means, I shouldn´t be feeling nearly as pissy over the course of this vacation as I am. The atmosphere is sublime, the circumstances are almost surreally beautiful in some ways, and I´m about as spoiled and as pampered as I could possibly hope to be. But, in many other ways, I feel as though I´m being seriously left in the lurch. My husband, Darren, has spent the entirety of what was supposed to be a romantic week-long getaway talking business on his cell phone, and by and large, left me so alone throughout my days that I feel like pulling my hair out. That´s when I decide to go for a swim, thinking that maybe I can put a bit of this discontent out of my mind for a while. But somehow, without even realizing it, I end up starting to drown, unable to come back up to the surface, and my field of vision going black before my eyes. I´m saved, thank God, by the good graces of my attractive, buxom brunette lifeguard, who pulls me from the water and literally breathes the life back into me. And things, I´m about to find, escalate into far more intimate territory from there. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Veronica Heart.

When Paul Miller´s pharmaceutical company goes public, making his family IPO millionaires, his wife, Janice, is sure this is the windfall she´s been waiting years for - until she learns, via messengered letter, that her husband is divorcing her (for her tennis partner!) and cutting her out of the new fortune. Meanwhile, 400 miles south in Los Angeles, the Millers´ older daughter, Margaret, has been dumped by her newly famous actor boyfriend and left in the lurch by an investor who promised to revive her fledgling post-feminist magazine, Snatch. Sliding toward bankruptcy and dogged by creditors, she flees for home, where her younger sister Lizzie, 14, is struggling with problems of her own.Formerly chubby, Lizzie has been enjoying her newfound popularity until some bathroom graffiti alerts her to the fact that she´s become the school slut.The three Miller women retreat behind the walls of their Georgian colonial to wage battle with divorce lawyers, debt collectors, drug-dealing pool boys, mean girls, country club ladies, evangelical neighbors, their own demons, and each other, and in the process they become achingly sympathetic characters we can´t help but root for, even as the world they live in epitomizes everything wrong with the American Dream.Exhilarating, addictive, and superbly accomplished, All We Ever Wanted Was Everything crackles with energy and intelligence and marks the debut of a knowing and very funny novelist, wise beyond her years. 1.
