Sharing the Wealth is the incredible true story of how a $40 a week baker became a multi-millionaire owner of a Super Bowl NFL team and an unprecedented philanthropist. The road Alex Spanos took to riches was not a common one. Without the advantages of money, background, education, or connections, Spanos relied on his own heart and determination to achieve success. Spanos recounts how his first gamble was his hardest and most important. As a husband and father of one child, with a second on the way, Spanos was barely making ends meet working in his father´s bakery. When his father refused to give him a raise to equal the going rate for bakers, he walked out, vowing never to return to his father´s employ. His first venture, selling bologna sandwiches to migrant workers, was earning $700,000 annually just five years after he left the bakery. He ultimately made his fortune in the construction business, becoming the #1 builder of apartments in America. Sharing the Wealth also shares the personal side of Alex Spanos. He struck lasting friendships with such celebrities as Bob Hope and Telly Savalas. He was given the key to the city of San Francisco, he provided relief funds after floods ravaged Northern California, and assisted with humanitarian aid when an earthquake struck Greece. Whenever a need arose, Alex Spanos was there to help. Finally, Spanos shares his odyssey of first buying an NFL team, and then ultimately reaching the Super Bowl. 1. Language: English.

On the heels of the best-selling success of The Ultimate Gift and the major motion picture from 20th Century Fox based on that book, Jim Stovall brings you The Millionaire Map. This is the book I wished was available 30 years ago when I was desperate and broke with only a dream of one day being a millionaire. Now, as a multimillionaire, I want to share the wisdom I´ve gained from the journey and provide other travelers with a map to guide them on their journey.´´ (Jim Stovall) The Millionaire Map reveals... You can´t expand your wallet until you expand your mind. Becoming a millionaire is not just about all the things you want to have, but it´s about the things you want to do and give. In order to climb to the financial peak, you´ve got to crawl out of the valley of debt. You will either voluntarily control your money now, or it will force its control on you later. The vast majority of people never arrive at their destination - not because they don´t have what it takes but because they don´t manage what they have. Jim Stovall has enjoyed success as an author, athlete, investment broker, and entrepreneur while dealing with the challenge of blindness. During his remarkable life, Jim has been a national champion Olympic weightlifter, as well as the author of 20 books. In addition to his personal achievements, Jim was honored as the 2000 International Humanitarian of the Year, joining Jimmy Carter, Nancy Reagan, and Mother Teresa as a recipient of this prestigious award. As cofounder and president of the Emmy Award-winning Narrative Television Network (NTN), Jim has also helped make movies and television accessible for America´s 13 million blind and visually impaired people and their families. 1.

A visionary and optimistic thinker examines the tension between privacy and publicness that is transforming how we form communities, create identities, do business, and live our lives. Thanks to the Internet, we now live—more and more—in public. More than 750 million people (and half of all Americans) use Facebook, where we share a billion times a day. The collective voice of Twitter echoes instantly 100 million times daily, from Tahrir Square to the Mall of America, on subjects that range from democratic reform to unfolding natural disasters to celebrity gossip. New tools let us share our photos, videos, purchases, knowledge, friendships, locations, and lives. Yet change brings fear, and many people—nostalgic for a more homogeneous mass culture and provoked by well-meaning advocates for privacy—despair that the Internet and how we share there is making us dumber, crasser, distracted, and vulnerable to threats of all kinds. But not Jeff Jarvis. In this shibboleth-destroying book, he argues persuasively and personally that the Internet and our new sense of publicness are, in fact, doing the opposite. Jarvis travels back in time to show the amazing parallels of fear and resistance that met the advent of other innovations such as the camera and the printing press. The Internet, he argues, will change business, society, and life as profoundly as Gutenberg’s invention, shifting power from old institutions to us all. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeff Jarvis.

When Ohio governor John Kasich ran for president, his powerful message of hope and togetherness struck a chord with American voters. In Two Paths: America Divided or United, he carries that message forward by reflecting on the tumultuous 2016 campaign, sharing his concerns for America and his hopes for our future, and sounding a clarion call to reason and purpose, humility and dignity, righteousness and calm. ´´The country never looked so grand and magnificent as it did from 10,000 feet,´´ he writes of his time on the campaign trail, ´´and it was always a thrilling, faith-affirming thing to look out our window and see the sun splashing across Bryce Canyon in Utah, or the lights of the New York skyline at night as we flew past the Statue of Liberty, or an open field in the heartland that ran as far as our eyes could see.... I´d look out and think what an honor it would be to lead this great nation, what a blessing.´´ To be sure, the full story of the 2016 presidential race will be written over time, but to understand what it was to be on the front lines of one of the most divisive and corrosive campaign battlegrounds in history, listeners won´t find a richer, more thoughtful firsthand account than this one - a frank, refreshing assessment of the American dynamic and a clear path we might follow toward a more promising tomorrow. As Governor Kasich reminds us, America is great because America is good - and because Americans have stayed true to who we are: one nation, under God, indivisible. 1. Language: English.

Drawing upon his own powerful personal story, Zachary R. Wood shares his perspective on free speech, race, and dissenting opinions-in a world that sorely needs to learn to listen. As the former president of the student group Uncomfortable Learning at his alma mater, Williams College, Zachary Wood knows from experience about intellectual controversy. At school and beyond, there´s no one Zach refuses to engage with simply because he disagrees with their beliefs-sometimes vehemently so-and this view has given him a unique platform in the media. But Zach has never shared the details of his own personal story. In Uncensored, he reveals for the first time how he grew up poor and black in Washington, DC, where the only way to survive was by resisting the urge to write people off because of their backgrounds and perspectives. By sharing his troubled upbringing-from a difficult early childhood to the struggles of code switching between his home and his elite private school-Zach makes a compelling argument for a new way of interacting with others and presents a new outlook on society´s most difficult conversations.
Immigrants have been coming to America since the beginning of the seventeenth century in pursuit of their dreams and a better life. Unfortunately in recent years, these very people who have been helping to shape the American Dream for centuries have become targets of abuse. Fiona Citkin, who immigrated to America from Ukraine, examines the individual experiences of eighteen immigrant women from around the world and from all walks of life who today serve as models of success. In sharing their unique and complex stories, Citkin demonstrates how these women succeeded in America under exceptionally difficult circumstances through drive, grit, intelligence, compassion, and leadership skills. Citkin also captures their collective wisdom and explores the values that drove them to action and success, and presents specific advice that will inspire other success seekers to follow in their footsteps. How They Made It in America shares the authentic stories of prominent multicultural female immigrants who overcame seemingly insurmountable odds to achieve success in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
