    A physician shares the darkest depths of his depression, suicidal ideation, addiction, and the important lessons he learned through years of personal recovery.Pediatric oncologist and palliative care physician Dr. Adam B. Hill suffered despair and disillusionment with the culture of medicine, culminating in a spiral of depression, alcoholism, and an active suicidal plan. Then while in recovery from active addiction, he lost a colleague to suicide, further revealing the extent of the secrecy and broken systems contributing to an epidemic of professional distress within the medical field. By sharing his harrowing story, Dr. Hill helps identify the barriers and obstacles standing in the way of mental health recovery, while pleading for a revolutionary new approach to how we treat individuals in substance use recovery. In fighting stereotypes/stigma and teaching vulnerability, compassion, and empathy, Hill’s work is being lauded as a road map for better practices at a time when medical professionals around the world are struggling in silence.

    Former president Ulysses S. Grant fell on hard times in his dying days - his family’s fortunes decimated by Ponzi scheme investments - and the general’s last hope was that these memoirs might provide a small inheritance for his surviving wife and children.  
    More than that, Grant’s memoirs remain among the most unique and insightful histories of 19th-century U.S. military campaigns, drawing on the author’s experiences in the Civil War and Mexican-American War. Fluid performer Peter Johnson captures the honest forthrightness and concise clarity that define Grant’s work in stark contrast to other Victorian military histories. Listeners are treated to Grant’s account of Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s surrender at Appomattox, and his surprising indictment of American motives in the country’s war against Mexico.

    This biography of the pioneering WWI flying ace who mentored the Red Baron is “fascinating . . . [it] captures combat aviation at its inception” (MiG Sweep: The Magazine of Aviation Warriors).   With a total of forty victories, Oswald Boelcke was Germany’s first ace in World War I—and a century later he remains a towering figure in the history of air warfare, renowned for his character, inspirational leadership, organizational genius, development of air-to-air tactics, and impact on aerial doctrine.   Paving the way for modern air forces across the world with his pioneering strategies, Boelcke had a dramatic effect on his contemporaries. The famed Red Baron’s mentor, instructor, squadron commander, and friend, he exerted a tremendous influence upon the German air force. He was one of the first pilots to be awarded the famous Pour le Mérite, commonly recognized as the “Blue Max.” All of this was achieved after overcoming medical obstacles in childhood and later life with willpower and determination.   Boelcke even gained the admiration of his enemies: After his tragic death in a midair collision, Britain’s Royal Flying Corps dropped a wreath on his funeral, and several of his captured foes sent another wreath from their German prison camp. His name and legacy live on, as seen in the Luftwaffe’s designation of the Tactical Air Force Wing 31 “Boelcke.” This definitive biography reveals his importance as a fighter pilot who set the standard in military aviation.

    A thought-provoking retelling of the Gospel story from an atheist perspective.   Upon its hardcover publication, renowned author Philip Pullman’s The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ provoked heated debates and stirred a frenzy of controversy throughout the clerical and literary worlds alike with its bold retelling of the life of Jesus Christ.   In this remarkable piece of fiction, famously atheistic author Philip Pullman challenges the events of the Gospels and puts forward his own compelling and plausible version of the life of Jesus. Written with unstinting authority, The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ is a pithy, erudite, subtle, and powerful book by a beloved author, a text to be read and reread, studied and unpacked, much like the Good Book itself.   “The erudite fantasy author, Philip Pullman, makes explicit his complaint against Christian dogma with [this] challenging deconstruction of the Gospels.” —Entertainment Weekly   “Inspiring . . . Again and again, [Pullman] displays a marvelous sense of the elemental power of Jesus’s instructions and parables.” —The Washington Post

    A biography of the heroic Bomber Command pilot who made his mark flying de Havilland Mosquitoes on air raids into Nazi Germany during World War II. When Air Vice Marshal Don Bennett formed the Pathfinder squadrons in 1942, the majority of the chosen pilots were highly experienced aircrew. Some, however, were exceptions and found themselves flying with this elite band with no previous combat experience. “Bertie” Boulter was one such pilot. After being accepted for pilot training with the RAF and learning to fly in Canada, Bertie was posted to No. 11 Radio School at Hooton Park as a staff pilot flying Avro Ansons and the lugubrious Botha. In October 1944, he was posted to No. 128 Pathfinder Squadron based at Wyton and flying the legendary de Havilland Mosquito XX. He was now in the thick of Bomber Command’s destruction of Germany’s industrial centers and communications system. November saw the first of his nineteen visits to Berlin and the first bale-out. Flying at 7,000 ft, with seriously malfunctioning Merlins, Bertie and his navigator were forced to abandon the aircraft and landed safely close to the front line. Another bale-out occurred because of dense fog near his home base in January 1945. This was on his return from a raid on Berlin made by 36 aircraft, twelve of which failed to return. Bertie’s logbook records that he flew 48 combat operations during which 128,000 lb of ordnance was dropped on enemy territory. He was still flying a Stearman biplane fifty years later and he still meets regularly with survivors of the Pathfinder squadrons.
