When Cliff Hardy signs on as a bodyguard for charismatic populist Rory O’Hara, who is about to embark on a campaign of social and political renewal, it looks like a tricky job; O’Hara has enemies. Sure enough, a murder and a kidnapping soon cause the campaign to fall apart. Hired to investigate the murder, Hardy uncovers hidden agendas among O’Hara’s staff and powerful political and commercial forces at work. His investigation takes him from the pubs and brothels of Sydney, to the heart of power in Canberra, and the outskirts of Darwin. There he teams up with a resourceful indigenous private detective and forms an uneasy alliance with the beautiful Penelope Marinos, formerly O’Hara’s PA. A rogue intelligence agent becomes his target and Hardy stumbles upon a terrible secret that draws them into a violent and disturbing confrontation. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dino Marnika.

Midsized companies are often overlooked by Wall Street and mainstream media outlets, though they are an integral part of national economics. Thus it’s important for national economic success to have a thriving midsized company sector. But that is not easy to do, largely because the factors that throttle growth of midsized companies can be quite different than those of their smaller and larger business brethren. Some of these factors are well known, but others can creep up on management teams and go almost unnoticed until it’s too late. Drawing upon his own experience and interviews with more than 99 companies, author Robert Sher runs through seven ´´silent growth killers´´ that plague midsized companies which, if not addressed, eventually cripple growth. Mighty Midsized Companies offers clear, tangible, actionable advice about dealing with these killers and growing despite them. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Walter Dixon.

Award-winning neurologist and scholar Dr. David Perlmutter makes a compelling case for a grain-free lifestyle in his nonfiction book, Grain Brain. He claims that carbohydrates hinder brain development, impairing cognitive function and contributing to the development of neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer´s and dementia. Most diseases of the brain, he argues, are preventable when one eats properly and adopts other healthy habits. He then gives readers the insight and advice they need to improve their lives and keep their brains functioning at peak efficiency for decades to come. This summary explores the major ideas found in Grain Brain, as well as the key take-aways from each chapter. Use it to help you make sense of the key thoughts Perlmutter presents and understand why the foods you eat play such an important role in your brain´s health. The book also presents readers with lists of must-have dietary staples, foods to consume in moderation, and foods to avoid, along with recipes that are both nutritious and tasty. Still, listeners may want to approach Grain Brain with caution: Although he uses scientific studies to back up his claims, Perlmutter does not acknowledge or respond to work that directly contradicts his own sources, which hampers his credibility. He also makes some illogical claims with no research to back them up. Allow our summary of Grain Brain to give you a complete picture of everything you should take away from this nonfiction piece. 1.
