Embracing the Wide Sky: A Tour Across the Horizons of the Mind by Daniel Tammet
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 164 MB
Overview: Owner of “the most remarkable mind on the planet,” (according to Entertainment Weekly) Daniel Tammet captivated readers and won worldwide critical acclaim with his 2007 New York Times best-selling memoir, Born on a Blue Day, and its vivid depiction of a life with autistic savant syndrome. In his fascinating new book, he writes with characteristic clarity and personal awareness as he sheds light on the mysteries of savants’ incredible mental abilities, and our own.

Tammet explains that the differences between savant and non-savant minds have been exaggerated; his astonishing capacities in memory, math, and language are neither due to a cerebral supercomputer nor any genetic quirk, but are rather the results of a highly rich and complex associative form of thinking and imagination. Autistic thought, he argues, is an extreme variation of a kind that we all do, from daydreaming to the use of puns and metaphors.

Embracing the Wide Sky combines meticulous scientific research with Tammet’s detailed descriptions of how his mind works to demonstrate the immense potential within us all. He explains how our natural intuitions can help us to learn a foreign language, why his memories are like symphonies, and what numbers and giraffes have in common. We also discover why there is more to intelligence than IQ, how optical illusions fool our brains, and why too much information can make you dumb.

Many readers will be particularly intrigued by Tammet’s original ideas concerning the genesis of genius and exceptional creativity. He illustrates his arguments with examples as diverse as the private languages of twins, the compositions of poets with autism, and the breakthroughs, and breakdowns, of some of history’s greatest minds.

The Power of Premonitions: How Knowing the Future Can Shape Our Lives by Larry Dossey
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 256 MB
Overview: Open your mind to the possibility of premonition, explore your capacity to sense the future, and ponder the implication of mind outside of time.

A dream prompts a mother to remove her baby from his crib an hour before a chandelier falls. More than a dozen people are no-shows for choir practice for the first time ever at the moment their church explodes. Before his patients ever call to say they’re coming to the hospital, an ob-gyn gets a pain in his chest signaling they’re ready to deliver. Are these coincidences, or is something happening that we need to pay attention to?

This is the question Dr. Larry Dossey asked himself during his first year of medical practice. He had never had any sense of knowing the future when he experienced a week of premonitions about patients, all of which came true. As a scientist and medical doctor he was taught that knowing the future wasn’t possible. He was scared to talk about his premonitions because if he dared believe anything he was experiencing was possible – that the future could be known before it happened – then his entire education and worldview would be turned on its head. But as suddenly as the premonitions started, they stopped: “It was as if the universe, having delivered a message,” writes Dossey in the introduction, “hung up the phone. It was now my job to make sense of…”

More than an examination of case studies, The Power of Premonitions reveals the world of science and research that proves the human capacity for knowing the future. Experiments consistently show that human beings are as wired to know what’s coming next as we are to see, feel, hear, and think. Dossey uses cutting-edge science to prove the value of what has long been considered the provenance of mystic charlatans and to show listeners how they can cultivate their natural abilities. This is an audiobook for the skeptical mind, but it’s also for the believer’s heart – because its author possesses the rare gift of having both.

Last Breath: Cautionary Tales from the Limits of Human Endurance by Peter Stark
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 163 MB
Overview: In this enthralling blend of adventure and science, veteran travel and outdoor sports writer Peter Stark ( Outdoor magazine) reenacts the drama of what happens inside our bodies, our minds, and our souls in the precarious last moments of life when we push ourselves to the absolute limits of human endurance.

Combining the adrenaline high of extreme sports with the startling facts of physiological reality, Stark narrates a series of outdoor adventure stories in which thrill can cross the line into mortal peril. Each death or brush with death is at once a suspense story, a cautionary tale, and a medical thriller. Will they survive, or will they succumb? Stark describes in unforgettable detail exactly what goes through the mind of a cross-country skier as his body temperature plummets – apathy at 91 degrees, stupor at 90. He puts us inside the body of a doomed kayaker tumbling helplessly underwater for two minutes, five minutes, 10 minutes. He conjures up the physiology of a snowboarder frantically trying not to panic as he consumes the tiny pocket of air trapped around his face under thousands of pounds of snow.

These are among the dire situations that Stark transforms into harrowing accounts of how our bodies react to trauma, how reflexes and instinct compel us to fight back, and how, why, and when we let go of our will to live.

In an increasingly tamed and homogenized world, risk is not only a means of escape but a path to spirituality. In this fascinating, informative audio, Stark reveals exactly what we’re getting ourselves into when we choose to live – and die – at the extremes of endurance.

Beauty knows the Beast’s forest in her bones – and in her blood. After all, her father is the only hunter who’s ever come close to discovering its secrets. So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters out of their comfortable home among the aristocracy and back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved.

The Beast.
Deaf to her sisters’ protests, Yeva hunts this strange creature back into his own territory – a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of magical creatures that Yeva’s only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin – or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty or the Beast?
