From a Pulitzer Prize–winning investigative reporter at The New York Times comes the explosive story of the rise of the processed food industry and its link to the emerging obesity epidemic. Michael Moss reveals how companies use salt, sugar, and fat to addict us and, more important, how we can fight back.

>History of Words
Holy Sh*t tells the story of two kinds of swearing - obscenities and oaths - from ancient Rome and the Bible to today. With humor and insight, Melissa Mohr takes listeners on a journey to discover how "swearing" has come to include both testifying with your hand on the Bible and calling someone a *#$&!* when they cut you off on the highway. She explores obscenities in ancient Rome - which were remarkably similar to our own - and unearths the history of religious oaths in the Middle Ages, when swearing (or not swearing) an oath was often a matter of life and death.

For more than 25 years John Thavis held one of the most fascinating journalistic jobs in the world: reporting on the inner workings of the Vatican. His daily exposure to the power, politics, and personalities in the seat of Roman Catholicism gave him a unique, behind-the-scenes perspective on an institution that is far less monolithic and unified than it first appears. Thavis reveals Vatican City as a place where Curia cardinals fight private wars, scandals threaten to undermine papal authority, and reverence for the past is continually upended by the practical considerations of modern life.

Thavis takes listeners from a bell tower high above St. Peter’s to the depths of the basilica and the saint’s burial place, from the politicking surrounding the election of a new pope and the ever-growing sexual abuse scandals around the world to controversies about the Vatican’s stand on contraception and more.

Perceptive, sharply written, and witty, The Vatican Diaries will appeal not only to Catholics - lapsed as well as devout - but to anyone interested in international diplomacy and the role of religion in an increasingly secularized world.

Originally written for the pulp magazines of the 1920s and '30s, H. P. Lovecraft's astonishing tales blend elements of horror, science fiction, and cosmic terror that are as powerful today as they were when first published. This tome brings together all of Lovecraft's harrowing stories, including the complete Cthulhu Mythos cycle, just the way they were when first released. It will introduce a whole new generation of readers to Lovecraft's fiction, as well as attract those fans who want all his work in a single, definitive volume.

>Political Philosophy
In Please Stop Helping Us, Jason L. Riley examines how well-intentioned welfare programs are in fact holding black Americans back. Minimum-wage laws may lift earnings for people who are already employed, but they price a disproportionate number of blacks out of the labor force. Affirmative action in higher education is intended to address past discrimination, but the result is fewer black college graduates than would otherwise exist. And so it goes with everything from soft-on-crime laws, which make black neighborhoods more dangerous, to policies that limit school choice out of a mistaken belief that charter schools and voucher programs harm the traditional public schools that most low-income students attend.

In theory these efforts are intended to help the poor - and poor minorities in particular. In practice they become massive barriers to moving forward.

Please Stop Helping Us lays bare these counterproductive results. People of goodwill want to see more black socioeconomic advancement, but in too many instances the current methods and approaches aren’t working. Acknowledging this is an important first step.

Tracing one scientist's journey toward understanding the crucial importance of the microbiome, this revolutionary book will take listeners to the forefront of trail-blazing research while revealing the damage that overuse of antibiotics is doing to our health: contributing to the rise of obesity, asthma, diabetes, and certain forms of cancer. In Missing Microbes, Dr. Martin J. Blaser invites us into the wilds of the human microbiome, where for hundreds of thousands of years bacterial and human cells have existed in a peaceful symbiosis that is responsible for the health and equilibrium of our body. Now this invisible eden is being irrevocably damaged by some of our most revered medical advances-antibiotics-threatening the extinction of our irreplaceable microbes with terrible health consequences. Taking us into both the lab and deep into the fields where these troubling effects can be witnessed firsthand, Blaser not only provides cutting-edge evidence for the adverse effects of antibiotics, he tells us what we can do to avoid even more catastrophic health problems in the future

Written by: Thom Hartmann
Narrated by: Dan Woren
Length: 9 hrs and 35 mins
Unabridged Audiobook
Release Date:11-12-13

The United States is more vulnerable today than ever before - including during the Great Depression and the Civil War - because the pillars of democracy that once supported a booming middle class have been corrupted, and without them, America teeters on the verge of the next Great Crash.

The United States is in the midst of an economic implosion that could make the Great Depression look like child's play. In The Crash of 2016, Thom Hartmann argues that the facade of our once-great United States will soon disintegrate to reveal the rotting core where corporate and billionaire power and greed have replaced democratic infrastructure and governance. Our once-enlightened political and economic systems have been manipulated to ensure the success of only a fraction of the population at the expense of the rest of us.

The result is a "for the rich, by the rich" scheme leading to policies that only benefit the highest bidders. Hartmann outlines the destructive forces - planted by Lewis Powell in 1971 and come to fruition with the "Reagan Revolution" - that have looted our nation over the past decade, and how their actions fit into a cycle of American history that lets such forces rise to power every four generations.

However, a backlash is now palpable against the "economic royalists" - a term coined by FDR to describe those hoarding power and wealth - including the banksters, oligarchs, and politicians who have plunged our nation into economic chaos and social instability.

Release Date:01-16-14

A provocative and lively exploration of the increasingly important world of macroeconomics, by the author of the bestselling The Undercover Economist.

Thanks to the worldwide financial upheaval, economics is no longer a topic we can ignore. From politicians to hedge-fund managers to middle-class IRA holders, everyone must pay attention to how and why the global economy works the way it does.

Enter Financial Times columnist and best-selling author Tim Harford. In this new book that demystifies macroeconomics, Harford strips away the spin, the hype, and the jargon to reveal the truth about how the world’s economy actually works. With the wit of a raconteur and the clear grasp of an expert, Harford explains what’s really happening beyond today’s headlines, why all of us should care, and what we can do about it to understand it better.

Length: 23 hrs and 8 mins
Unabridged Audiobook
Release Date:10-26-10

As lead guitarist of the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards created the riffs, the lyrics, and the songs that roused the world. A true and towering original, he has always walked his own path, spoken his mind, and done things his own way.

Now at last, Richards pauses to tell his story in the most anticipated autobiography in decades. And what a story! Listening obsessively to Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters records in a coldwater flat with Mick Jagger and Brian Jones, building a sound and a band out of music they loved. Finding fame and success as a bad-boy band, only to find themselves challenged by authorities everywhere. Dropping his guitar's sixth string to create a new sound that allowed him to create immortal riffs like those in "Honky Tonk Woman" and "Jumpin' Jack Flash". Falling in love with Anita Pallenberg, Brian Jones's girlfriend. Arrested and imprisoned for drug possession. Tax exile in France and recording Exile on Main Street. Ever-increasing fame, isolation, and addiction, making life an ever faster frenzy. Through it all, Richards remained devoted to the music of the band, until even that was challenged by Mick Jagger's attempt at a solo career, leading to a decade of conflicts and ultimately the biggest reunion tour in history.

Author of the extremely popular "Dear Economist" column in Financial Times, Tim Harford reveals the economics behind everyday phenomena in this highly entertaining and informative book. Can a book about economics be fun to read? It can when Harford takes the reins, using his trademark wit to explain why it costs an arm and a leg to buy a cappuccino and why it's nearly impossible to purchase a decent used car. Supermarkets, coffee houses, airlines, insurance companies, and more are sucking money from our wallets. To protect ourselves and our bank accounts, we must better understand why companies do what they do.

Program Type: Audiobook

What are the grand dynamics that drive the accumulation and distribution of capital? Questions about the long-term evolution of inequality, the concentration of wealth, and the prospects for economic growth lie at the heart of political economy. But satisfactory answers have been hard to find for lack of adequate data and clear guiding theories. In Capital in the Twenty-First Century, Thomas Piketty analyzes a unique collection of data from 20 countries, ranging as far back as the 18th century, to uncover key economic and social patterns. His findings will transform debate and set the agenda for the next generation of thought about wealth and inequality.

Piketty shows that modern economic growth and the diffusion of knowledge have allowed us to avoid inequalities on the apocalyptic scale predicted by Karl Marx. But we have not modified the deep structures of capital and inequality as much as we thought in the optimistic decades following World War II. The main driver of inequality - the tendency of returns on capital to exceed the rate of economic growth - today threatens to generate extreme inequalities that stir discontent and undermine democratic values. But economic trends are not acts of God. Political action has curbed dangerous inequalities in the past, Piketty says, and may do so again.

A work of extraordinary ambition, originality, and rigor, Capital in the Twenty-First Century reorients our understanding of economic history and confronts us with sobering lessons for today.

The Disaster Artist is a non-fiction book written by Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell. Hailed by The Huffington Post as "possibly the most important piece of literature ever printed", in it Greg Sestero reveals the troubled development and filming of The Room while detailing his own struggles as a starving young actor and his relationship with the mysterious Tommy Wiseau. The book focuses on the difficulties and odd experiences he had behind the scenes and his unlikely friendship with Wiseau.(Wikipedia)

The various versions follow the same basic plot but they are in many places mutually contradictory, as Adams rewrote the story substantially for each new adaptation. Throughout all versions, the series follows the adventures of Arthur Dent, a hapless Englishman, although the story also follows the adventure of other major characters: Ford Prefect (who named himself after the Ford Prefect car to blend in with what was assumed to be the dominant life form, automobiles), an alien from a small planet somewhere in the vicinity of Betelgeuse and a researcher for the eponymous guidebook; Zaphod Beeblebrox, Ford's semi-cousin and the Galactic President; the depressed robot Marvin the Paranoid Android; and Trillian, formerly known as Tricia McMillan, a woman Arthur once met at a party in Islington and the only other human survivor of Earth's destruction.

>Psychology
Numerous studies have shown us that those given authority are more likely to lie, cheat and steal, while also being harsher in their judgments of others for doing these same things. Science tells us people with power feel less compassion for the suffering of others.

Previous experiments also show us that those who are obedient to authority are capable of the worst forms of murder, and tolerant of the worst forms of abuse. They will even chastise those of us who resist corrupt authority. They become facilitators of evil, believing that obedience to authority absolves them of personal responsibility.

This is the fifth draft of a renegade psychological experiment on authoritarian sociopathy, specifically on police brutality. We aim to show the world beyond a shadow of a doubt, that power corrupts absolutely, and corrupt authority deserves no obedience.

I was really wondering which one would come first, the 'Hitchhike\r's Guide to the Galaxy' series or the 'Harry Potter' series, I knew one of the two would be coming, thanks for proving me right.

Fair enough, thanks for the dump anyway. Looking forward to listening to some of these.

Yeah, I currently already own the Stephen Fry release but I've had some really bad luck with it, each time I try to listen to it something always occurs and I lose my place, or I miss something, or someone interrupts me, etc... I think I've heard the first hour of the first book at-least four or five times now.

The Hellbound Heart
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hellbound_Heart

I haven't actually gotten around to listening to this yet, but it's a horror audiobook that was posted in a now-dead thread. Apparently the original had an annoying hiss, and the OP of that thread had fixed it.

Please don't zip torrents, it's bad practice. Due to this, I'm currently seeding every book in this thread except for this one.

Yeah I didn't either until I found out that every other torrent for this audio book was corrupted or couldn't get seeders due to ridiculous site requirements.

I'm downloaded it, unzipped it, and scanned it several times. It's fine. It's also the most complete audio book I could find for it. Not to mention that it passed the test of others on this thread that was also about books >>610628 which is the only reason that I trusted it in the first place.
>>
>>641950
It's less that I think it's malware, it's more that users can't tell information about it before the entire download is complete, or if they can, it's annoyingly difficult.

See:- ZIP specification references reading both the header and tail of the file before data can be extracted, this means if you're downloading in sequential order you won't be able to start listening to it until it's fully done, you also won't be able to check the bit rate and stuff like that.

On top of that, if you want to listen to it, the majority of tools require the actual files, not the archived files (I.E. .zip), so to listen and seed at the same time, you need the .zip and all the files making up the .zip, which is an insane request of someone to store the file twice just to be able to donate bandwidth.

Zips = bad for torrents, and I refuse to help distribute it.

The logic is sound and I agree. Which is funny because looking at my torrent list all but one of the things I'm seeding are zip'd or rar'd.

Doesn't affect me anyhow since I grabbed it in the other thread.

>Economics
Release Date: 4/15/2005
Author: Steven D. Levitt, Stephen J. Dubner
Narrator: Stephen J. Dubner
Publisher: Penguin (UK)
Genre: True Crime, Social Science, Business & Economics
Edition: Unabridged
Format: MP3
Bitrate: 128-134 kbps VBR
Length: 06:26:42

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Stephen J. Dubner and Steven Levitt’s cult bestseller, Freakanomics, fantastically read by Stephen J. Dubner himself.

Modern life can be baffling and chaotic. Is there any way of making sense of it? The answer, explains groundbreaking thinker Steven Levitt, lies in economics. Not ordinary economics, but freakonomics. It is at the heart of everything we see and do and the subjects that bedevil us daily: from parenting to crime, sport to politics, fat to cheating, fear to traffic jams.

In Freakonomics Levitt turns conventional economics on its head, stripping away the jargon and calculations of the ‘experts’ to explore the riddles of everyday life and examine topics such as: how chips are more likely to kill you than murder or a terrorist attack; why sportsmen cheat and how fraud can be spotted; why violent crime can be linked not to gun laws, policing or poverty, but to abortion; why a road is more efficient when everyone travels at 20mph; how the name you give your child can give them an advantage in later life; and what really causes obesity epidemics. Ultimately, he shows us that economics is all about how people get what they want, and what makes them do it.

Asking provocative and profound questions about human motivation and contemporary living and reaching some astonishing conclusions, Freakonomics will make you see the familiar world through a completely original lens.

Abridged Audiobook
Release Date:11-27-07

Great companies can fail: not because they do anything wrong, but because they do everything right. Meeting customers' current needs leads firms to reject breakthrough innovations, "disruptive technologies", that create the products and opportunities of the future.

Radical thinking...and a wake-up call. Citing examples from many industries (computers, retailing, pharmaceuticals, automobiles, steel), Clayton M. Christensen explains how to avoid a similar fate. He presents strategies for determining when not to listen to customers, when to pursue small markets at the expense of larger ones, and other ways to ensure long-term growth and profit. This award-winning audiobook shows managers the changes that may be coming: and how to respond for success.

Program Type: Audiobook

We live in a world that's very different from the one in which Emily Post came of age. Many of us who are nice (but who also sometimes say "f*ck") are frequently at a loss for guidelines about how to be a good person who deals effectively with the onslaught of rudeness we all encounter. To lead us through this this miasma of modern manners, syndicated columnist Amy Alkon - The Advice Goddess - gives us a new set of manners for our 21st-century lives. In chapters titled "The Telephone", "The Internet", "The Apology", and "Communicating", among others, Alkon maps out new rules that go beyond what fork to use to answer real questions we all have:

When is it okay to phone somebody instead of emailing or texting? When is it rude?

Why shouldn't you tweet about a guest at a private dinner party? Everybody knows privacy is dead, right?

How do you shut the guy up in the pharmacy line with his cellphone on speaker?

When is it right to approach somebody who's crying in public and when is it right to leave him alone?

When should you unfriend somebody on Facebook and what do you say when she calls you on it?

If you have an STD, when do you tell people, what do you say, and do you have to contact everyone you've ever had sex with?

Real advice for today with more than a touch of humor, Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck is destined to give good old Emily a shove off the etiquette shelf (if that's not too rude to say).

Meticulously researched and character driven, Smartest Guys in the Room takes the reader deep into Enron's pastжўђnd behind the closed doors of private meetings. Drawing on a wide range of unique sources, the book follows Enron's rise from obscurity to the top of the business world to its disastrous demise. It reveals as never before major characters such as Ken Lay, Jeff Skilling, and Andy Fastow, as well as lesser known players like Cliff Baxter and Rebecca Mark. Smartest Guys in the Room is a story of greed, arrogance, and deceitжўђ microcosm of all that is wrong with American business today. Above all, it's a fascinating human drama that will prove to be the authoritative account of the Enron scandal.

>Minimum-wage laws may lift earnings for people who are already employed, but they price a disproportionate number of blacks out of the labor force
This is objectively wrong.
>>
>>646085
>This is objectively wrong.
Yet we have no correlation between the increase in minimum wage with a subsequent increase in black employment.

According to supply - demand economics, a minimum wage is the setting of a price ceiling on the supply of labor. So if you want people to work for your company, you've got to pay $[Minimum Wage]. The effect of this mandatory price setting above what one would normally pay, is a decrease in the demand of labor. Also, if you take a microeconomic perspective on this situation, minimum wage mainly discriminates against low skilled workers.

>So how does this put a disproportionate amount of blacks out of the labor force?

Blacks are more likely to have fraudulent education, be of a lower socioeconomic standing, resulting in the tendency of being a lower skilled worker. What the minimum wage does is that it restrict low skilled workers from even getting a chance to become more skilled, and then move up the ladder.

However, lifting the minimum wage laws in 2015 would be a terrible situation that would create a class of slave equivalents. Remember that one of the fundamental laws of economics is supply - demand.

The problem I see is immigration. We have so much immigration into the United States that the supply of labor is bloated. Therefore, if there is a huge supply of labor, companies will be able to, without difficulty, charge a lower price for the same amount of work.

>The effect of this mandatory price setting above what one would normally pay, is a decrease in the demand of labor.

This is entirely wrong.

If it takes 5 people to run a KFC, it takes 5 people to run a KFC. KFC won't hire 6 people if wages are low or high, and they won't hire 4 people because there is not enough labor to do the work, no matter how much people are being paid. What min wage does is pass along the increased prices to the customer. This increase of prices leads those with no or minimal income to be able to afford less, and those making above min wage pay more for goods and services without a pay increase.
>>
>>656964
also, usually businesses will force 4 workers to do the work of 5. to save money and exploit the worker as much as possible
>>
>>653260
>And yet without minimum wage we have horrible human rights abuses and shit like the Company store.

What you have here my dear anon is a horrible generalization of a situation that is very complex.

>Everytime someone whines about regulation and how great it would be if goverment wasn't constantly interfering, I'll just point them to Sinclair's The Jungle and ask them if they want to find human fingers in their hamburger.

No one one has a right to complain about over-regulation 100 years into the future because of how a canning factory operated more than 100 years ago? I see.

>lol you know you could always gaf and ask the wealthy elites of the country to release the %90

lol you could always gaf and see how this is not a one-solution issue, but nah,

>just blame it on minorites, play that game.
just blame it on one party entirely, play that game

Much easier.

I agree 100% in your claim that the elite have an excessive amount of money.
However it also seems disingenuous of you to completely and utterly disregard the evidence provided about the situation of blacks. It only attributes to you looking like a fucktard.
>>
>>656964

>If it takes 5 people to run a KFC, it takes 5 people to run a KFC.
Exactly. So if they can only afford 4 employees, the business fails.
When KFC goes out of business, the demand for labor will drop.

>What min wage does is pass along the increased prices to the customer.
Not always. According to microecomomics, the cost displacement and who bears the burden is based on a couple of factors such as elasticity.
If their services/products are elastic in the market, they will lose money if they try to displace the cost onto their customers. Oligopolies and companies with defined brand names will definitely be able to do this while smaller businesses would have to personally bear the expense. That's not good. Once more, I am not disagreeing with the fact that the cost would likely be passed to the customer in some instances, but I believe there are a few more factors at play.

I believe minimum wages are bad, but as i've said before, because we have such a large population of workers, the supply of work in a situation without minimum wage would drive the average wage so low that America would be slaves to corporations similar to the early 1900's.
