Through a candid narrative, parents describe the surreal experience of having twin sons with severe autism. Valerie Hall's episodic text chronicles Jack's and James' condition as it transforms family life and poses ominous implications for the future. Her reactions to her own life in a world where autism makes the rules are candid and unfiltered. She rejects the tropes of most autism literature, spurning both memoir and how-to prescriptions. Instead she invites you to encounter Jack and James as she does, as boys who are both beautiful and broken. The day-to-dayness of her account has the disturbing effect of allowing the listener to step into a world where expectations are upended and encounters take on an aura of the surreal. The audiobook includes the narrative of the book; photographs (by Bruce Hall) are available to view on the Visual Summit website. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Valerie Hall.

Set The Rum Diaries or I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell in an out-of-control fraternity house, and you get Total Frat Move - the next (d)evolution in college debauchery. Put simply, it is time for a national update on college fraternities. Greek life today makes Animal House (now more than three decades old) look like a Pixar movie. The Total Frat Move website and twitter feed were created to fill this vacuum for "fraternity humor", and both went viral the minute they hit the web - and have not stopped growing since. "The website is so awful, so atrocious, it has been my policy to call for the immediate annihilation of its users. They should have their toes chewed off by rabid weasels, at the very least." —Robert Beckhusen, The University Star "Yesterday I discovered TotalFratMove.com. Today, I am an addict." —Tatiana Schlossberg (JFK's granddaughter), Broad Recognition Magazine This audiobook of completely new narrative material will give everyone a chance to experience the glory that is college life through the eyes of Townes Prescott III, the fictional epitome of a hard-partying fraternity member. Prescott will guide listeners through all of the "nuances" of 21st century frat life, including unforgettable events such as rush, bid night, hell week, tailgating, and road trips. While the stories have been fictionalized for the sake of narrative, variations of everything in the audiobook happen every year in colleges across America. Also included are the best one-liner TFMs and photos from the Total Frat Move website. Waking up in the hospital with your fake ID's name on your wristband. TFM.

Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The most compelling scientific evidence for life beyond death ever compiled. Evidence of the Afterlife shares the firsthand accounts of people who have died and lived to tell about it. Through their work at the Near Death Experience Research Foundation, radiation oncologist Jeffrey Long and his wife, Jody, have gathered thousands of accounts of near-death experiences (NDEs) from all over the world. In addition to sharing the personal narrative of their experiences, visitors to the website are asked to fill out a one hundred-item questionnaire designed to isolate specific elements of the experience and to flag counterfeit accounts. The website has become the largest NDE research database in the world, containing over 1,600 NDE accounts. The people whose stories are captured in the database span all age groups, races, and religious affiliations and come from all over the world, yet the similarities in their stories are as awe-inspiring as they are revealing. Using this treasure trove of data, Dr. Long explains how medical evidence fails to explain these reports and why there is only one plausible explanation?that people have survived death and traveled to another dimension. 1.

In his sophomore year of college, Mark Zuckerberg created a simple website to serve as a campus social network. The site caught on like wildfire, and soon students nationwide were on Facebook. Today, Facebook is nearly unrecognizable from Zuckerberg's first, modest iteration. It has grown into a tech giant, the largest social media platform and one of the most gargantuan companies in the world, with a valuation of more than $576 billion and almost 3 billion users. There is no denying the power and omnipresence of Facebook in American daily life. And in light of recent controversies surrounding election-influencing "fake news" accounts, the handling of its users' personal data, and growing discontent with the actions of its founder and CEO, never has the company been more central to the national conversation. Based on years of exclusive reporting and interviews with Facebook's key executives and employees, including Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg, Steven Levy's sweeping narrative digs deep into the whole story of the company that has changed the world and reaped the consequences.
