#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ? When we deny our stories, they define us. When we own our stories, we get to write the ending. Don´t miss the hourlong Netflix special Brené Brown: The Call to Courage! Social scientist Brené Brown has ignited a global conversation on courage, vulnerability, shame, and worthiness. Her pioneering work uncovered a profound truth: Vulnerability-the willingness to show up and be seen with no guarantee of outcome-is the only path to more love, belonging, creativity, and joy. But living a brave life is not always easy: We are, inevitably, going to stumble and fall. It is the rise from falling that Brown takes as her subject in Rising Strong. As a grounded theory researcher, Brown has listened as a range of people-from leaders in Fortune 500 companies and the military to artists, couples in long-term relationships, teachers, and parents-shared their stories of being brave, falling, and getting back up. She asked herself, What do these people with strong and loving relationships, leaders nurturing creativity, artists pushing innovation, and clergy walking with people through faith and mystery have in common? The answer was clear: They recognize the power of emotion and they´re not afraid to lean in to discomfort. Walking into our stories of hurt can feel dangerous. But the process of regaining our footing in the midst of struggle is where our courage is tested and our values are forged. Our stories of struggle can be big ones, like the loss of a job or the end of a relationship, or smaller ones, like a conflict with a friend or colleague. Regardless of magnitude or circumstance, the rising strong process is the same: We reckon with our emotions and get curious about what we´re feeling; we rumble with our stories until we get to a place of truth; and we live this process, every day, until it becomes a practice and creates nothing short of a revolution in our lives. Rising strong after a fall is how we cultivate wholeheartedness. It´s the process, Brown writes, that teaches us the most about who we are. ONE OF GREATER GOOD´S FAVORITE BOOKS OF THE YEAR ´´[Brené Brown´s] research and work have given us a new vocabulary, a way to talk with each other about the ideas and feelings and fears we´ve all had but haven´t quite known how to articulate. . . . Brené empowers us each to be a little more courageous.´´-The Huffington Post

A New York Times best-selling historian sheds new light on Sherman’s epic ´´March to the Sea´´, especially the soldiers, doctors, nurses, and civilians who would change the nation for the better. America in the antebellum years was a deeply troubled country, divided by partisan gridlock and ideological warfare, angry voices in the streets and the statehouses, furious clashes over race and immigration, and a growing chasm between immense wealth and desperate poverty. The Civil War that followed brought America to the brink of self-destruction. But it also created a new country from the ruins of the old one - bolder and stronger than ever. No event in the war was more destructive, or more important, than William Sherman´s legendary march through Georgia - crippling the heart of the South´s economy, freeing thousands of slaves, and marking the beginning of a new era. This invasion not only quelled the Confederate forces, but transformed America, forcing it to reckon with a century of injustice. Dickey reveals the story of women actively involved in the military campaign and later, in civilian networks. African Americans took active roles as soldiers, builders, and activists. Rich with despair and hope, brutality, and compassion, Rising in Flames tells the dramatic story of the Union´s invasion of the Confederacy and how this colossal struggle helped create a new nation from the embers of the Old South. 1.

They´ve lived in orbit around planet Lumus for centuries and, for all they know, no one else exists but them. However, they don´t know how their race got here. No history book has an answer and no historian has the guts to find out. It´s as if the history of their race, the human race, originated in orbit around this planet. Any knowledge of their distant past has either been erased or their Prime Director is correct - they were birthed here. Most don´t question it. Some do. Regardless, life is undisturbed. All they know is peace. There is no torment, no struggle, and no war. The starships and starfighters that make up their military - Star Guild - are for show, unneeded, and manufactured only to help with tech research. They know of no enemy, no threat, no carnage, and because of this they aren´t prepared for what´s coming. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Walton.

Global warming has transformed the Earth, and it´s about to get even hotter. The Arctic Ice Cap has all but melted, and the international community is racing desperately to claim the massive amounts of oil beneath the newly accessible ocean. Enter the Gaia Corporation. Its two founders have come up with a plan to roll back global warming. Thousands of tiny mirrors floating in the air can create a giant sunshade, capable of redirecting heat and cooling the earth´s surface. They plan to terraform Earth to save it from itself—but in doing so, they have created a superweapon the likes of which the world has never seen. Anika Duncan is an airship pilot for the underfunded United Nations Polar Guard. She’s intent on capturing a smuggled nuclear weapon that has made it into the Polar Circle and bringing the smugglers to justice. Anika finds herself caught up in a plot by a cabal of military agencies and corporations who want Gaia Corporation stopped. But when Gaia Corp loses control of their superweapon, it will be Anika who has to decide the future of the world. The nuclear weapon she has risked her life to find is the only thing that can stop the floating sunshade after it falls into the wrong hands. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carolyn Michelle Smith.

USA Today best-selling author Kennedy Layne concludes the Surviving Ashes series with an explosive story where the strength of love rises against the loss of humanity.... Van Overton had given years of service to his country. He´d paid his dues and he no longer needed to put his life on the line. He could live out the rest of his days doing what he did best - making money from inside the heart of the world´s fastest paced financial system. Allie James had wished time and again for something - anything - to happen just so she didn´t have to open another eviction notice. She adored the hustle and bustle of the city, her cozy apartment in a good neighborhood, and the rugged looking man across the hall wasn´t half bad to look at either. Regrettably, she´d been thinking more along the lines of winning the lottery than an approaching apocalypse. Van should have known his luck wouldn´t hold out, but a supervolcano eruption? It was a good thing his time in the military had taught him to be ready for just about anything. Unfortunately, his next-door neighbor didn´t fit into anyone´s idea of a survival plan. Allie was everything he tried to avoid in a woman, but she was definitely the one who had the ability to steal his heart. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rock Engle.
