Kate Atkinson’s dazzling Life After Life, one of the top-selling adult books of 2014, explored the possibility of infinite chances, as Ursula Todd lived through the turbulent events of the last century again and again. In A God in Ruins, Atkinson turns her focus on Ursula’s beloved younger brother, Teddy - would-be poet, RAF bomber pilot, husband, and father - as he navigates the perils and progress of the 20th century.

We all 'have it in us' - it depends upon us to get it out into Expression. And, this Individual Expression lies at the heart of the 'Secret of Success'.

While William Walker Atkinson was best known as one of the leading thinkers in the New Thought movement in the early 20th century, he also authored numerous esoteric books under his own name and under various pseudonyms including Yogi Ramacharaka and Theron Q. Dumont. This book is a detailed exploration of contact mind reading, which was a highly popular diversion in the early 20th century. This book contains practical instructions for conducting experiments and demonstrations, including various parlour skits which could be used to create an evening's entertainment. Nonetheless, Atkinson treats the subject seriously, and does not consider it a mere spectacle. Rather, he sees it as a gateway to deeper mysteries of the mind, to which he alludes. Editor Jason Augustus Newcomb has clarified many of the instructions for modern listeners, as well as added additional material from his own practical experiences with this subject. 1.

Louise Penny says Nicci French's books are "fabulous". Joseph Finder says they're "in the rich vein of Kate Atkinson". And Tami Hoag calls them "truly unique". Enter the world of Nicci French with Dark Saturday, an electrifying, sophisticated psychological thriller about past crimes and present dangers, featuring an unforgettable protagonist.... A decade ago 18-year-old Hannah Docherty was arrested for the shocking murder of her family. It was an open-and-shut case, and Hannah has been incarcerated in a secure psychiatric hospital ever since. When psychotherapist Frieda Klein is asked to meet Hannah and give her assessment, she reluctantly agrees. But what she finds horrifies her. Hannah has become a tragic figure, old before her time. And Frieda is haunted by the idea that Hannah might be as much of a victim as her family - that she might, in fact, be innocent. As Hannah's case takes hold of her, Frieda begins to realize that she's up against someone who will go to any lengths to keep the truth from surfacing - even kill again. Utterly compelling and enthralling, Dark Saturday speeds listeners down a twisting trail of secrets, suspense, and murder. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Beth Chalmers.
