Iconic couples´ therapist and best-selling author Esther Perel returns with a provocative look at relationships through the lens of infidelity, providing the insight we so desperately need to help us move beyond a simplistic discussion. An affair: it can rob a couple of their relationship, their happiness, their very identity. Adultery has existed since marriage was invented, and so, too, have the prohibitions against it - in fact adultery has a tenacity that marriage can only envy. And yet this extremely common human experience is so poorly understood. What are we to make of this time-honoured taboo - universally forbidden yet universally practiced? Why do people cheat? When we say ´infidelity´, what exactly do we mean? Is there such a thing as an affair-proof marriage? Is it possible to love more than one person at once? Can an affair ever help a marriage? Psychotherapist Esther Perel is recognised as one of the most insightful and original voices on modern love. For the past 10 years, she has worked with hundreds of couples who have grappled with infidelity. Betrayal hurts, she argues, but healing is possible. An affair can even be the doorway to a new marriage - with the same person. With the right approach, couples can learn from these tumultuous experiences, together or apart. Weaving real-life stories with incisive psychological and cultural analysis, Perel invites listeners into a truly revealing exploration of modern marriage. 1. Language: English.

This is the inside story of how America turned from a respected republic into a feared empire. ´´Economic hit men,´´ John Perkins writes, ´´are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder.´´ John Perkins should know; he was an economic hit man. His job was to convince countries that are strategically important to the U.S., from Indonesia to Panama, to accept enormous loans for infrastructure development and to make sure that the lucrative projects were contracted to Halliburton, Bechtel, Brown and Root, and other United States engineering and construction companies. Saddled with huge debts, these countries came under the control of the United States government, World Bank, and other U.S.-dominated aid agencies that acted like loan sharks, dictating repayment terms and bullying foreign governments into submission. This extraordinary real-life tale exposes international intrigue, corruption, and little-known government and corporate activities that have dire consequences for American democracy and the world. 1.

From If the First Lady Hired Me...: I can´t predict where their marriage goes from here. In any individual situation, it´s unwise to guess. I do know, for solid certainty, that cheating is the kiss of death to marriage and monogamous relationships. First lady of the US, can you hear me? If so, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Justin Hopson. I am a seasoned private investigator and retired New Jersey state trooper. Please know that I´ve been chasing cheaters for more than a decade now. In fact, I´ve had the unenviable task of investigating more than 100 divorce cases and have testified in a fair share of court proceedings. Infidelity, unfaithfulness, and adultery are too gentle of words, too proper for what they describe. Cheating is a better choice, much more direct....This audiobook depicts the most riveting real-life cases that licensed Private Eye Justin Hopson has investigated by untangling the web of deception behind cheating. From Melania Trump and the alleged affairs of America´s 45th president to the tragic end of a small-town love triangle, this pause-resister will keep you binging! You´ll learn how to catch a cheater...you´ll understand ´´why´´ they cheated...and you´ll realize what to do next. No excuses, no alibis, no apologies. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Justin Hopson.

A shocking exposé of Volkswagen´s fraud by the New York Times reporter who covered the scandal. In mid-2015 Volkswagen proudly reached its goal of surpassing Toyota as the world´s largest automaker. A few months later, the EPA disclosed that Volkswagen had installed software in 11 million cars that deceived emissions-testing mechanisms. By early 2017 VW had settled with American regulators and car owners for $20 billion, with additional lawsuits still looming. In Faster, Higher, Farther, Jack Ewing rips the lid off the conspiracy. He describes VW´s rise from ´´the people´s car´´ during the Nazi era to one of Germany´s most prestigious and important global brands, touted for being ´´green´´. He paints vivid portraits of Volkswagen chairman Ferdinand Piëch and chief executive Martin Winterkorn, arguing that the corporate culture they fostered drove employees, working feverishly in pursuit of impossible sales targets, to illegal methods. Unable to build cars that could meet emissions standards in the United States honestly, engineers were left with no choice but to cheat. Volkswagen then compounded the fraud by spending millions marketing ´´clean diesel´´, only to have the lie exposed by a handful of researchers on a shoestring budget, resulting in a guilty plea to criminal charges in a landmark Department of Justice case. Faster, Higher, Farther reveals how the succeed-at-all-costs mentality prevalent in modern boardrooms led to one of corporate history´s farthest-reaching cases of fraud - with potentially devastating consequences. 1.

Though written around 1513, more than 500 years ago, Italian diplomat Niccolò Machiavelli´s The Prince is still both widely listened to and very influential. Listeners turn to it for its direct advice on the question of how to attain - and retain - power. Machiavelli´s answer, in brief: Use any means necessary to make sure the state survives. Given the changeable nature of politics, the strong ruler that Machiavelli describes may need to lie or cheat, deceive, and, if necessary, resort to acts of violence - all the while maintaining an image of goodness. With enough skill - along with luck and favorable circumstances - the prince will retain his power. Machiavelli´s ideas continue to be used today by leaders both scrupulous and unscrupulous. Rightly or wrongly, his name remains a byword for political behavior that deals in realities rather than theories, making The Prince arguably one of the most influential books in the Western tradition. 1.

First published in 1935, when Americans were still largely oblivious to the rise of Hitler in Europe, this prescient novel tells a cautionary tale about the fragility of democracy and offers an alarming, eerily timeless look at how fascism could take hold in America. Doremus Jessup, a newspaper editor, is dismayed to find that many of the people he knows support presidential candidate Berzelius Windrip. The suspiciously fascist Windrip is offering to save the nation from sex, crime, welfare cheats, and a liberal press. But after Windrip wins the election, dissent soon becomes dangerous for Jessup. Windrip forcibly gains control of Congress and the Supreme Court and, with the aid of his personal paramilitary storm troopers, turns the United States into a totalitarian state. 1.
