Fred Trueman was a national treasure, a legend not only to cricket fans the world over but also to those who only ever took a passing interest in the game. As one of the greatest fast bowlers in cricketing history, Trueman´s dazzling performances raised the spirits of a nation and struck terror in the hearts of even the most formidable of opponents. In this audiobook, Trueman tells the full, definitive story of his life in his own inimitable fashion. From his village childhood to his debut for Yorkshire at the tender age of 18, to his international test triumphs and his other and equally successful careers as a commentator, stalwart of BBC Radio´s Test Match Special, raconteur, and after-dinner speaker, Freddie recalls, with characteristic honesty, the highs and lows of his public and private life. This audiobook is bursting with riotous anecdotes, trenchant opinions on the game he loved, and genuine warmth. Language: English. Narrator: Fred Trueman.

´´The purpose of politics is not to defeat your opponent as much as it is to provide superior leadership and better ideas than the opposition.´´ - Jack Kemp The late 1970s were miserable for America. It was the post-Vietnam, post-Watergate era, a time of high unemployment, ruinous inflation, gasoline lines, Communist advances, and bottomed-out US morale. In the 1980s it all turned around: ´´stagflation´´ ended, and nearly two decades of prosperity ensued. The Soviet Union retreated then collapsed. America again believed in itself. And around the world, democratic capitalism was deemed ´´the end of history´´. Ronald Reagan´s policies sparked the American renaissance, but the Gipper´s leadership is only part of the story. The economic theory that underpinned America´s success was pioneered by a star professional quarterback turned self-taught intellectual and ´´bleeding-heart conservative´´: Jack Kemp. Kemp´s role in a pivotal period in American history is at last illuminated in this first-ever biography, which also has lessons for the politics of today. Kemp was the congressional champion of supply-side economics - the idea that lowering taxes would foster growth. Even today, almost no one advocates a return to a top income tax rate of 70 percent. Kemp didn´t just challenge the Democratic establishment. He also encouraged his fellow Republicans to be growth (not austerity) minded, open their tent to minorities and blue-collar workers, battle poverty and discrimination, and once again become ´´the party of Lincoln´´. Kemp approached politics the same way he played quarterback for the Buffalo Bills: with a refusal to accept defeat. Yet he also was incapable of personal attack, arguing always on the level of ideas. He regarded opponents as adversaries, not enemies, and often cooperated with them to get things done.... ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Morton Kondracke, Fred Barnes.

Based on the movie Cowboys and Aliens starring Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig.1875, New Mexico Territory. A stranger with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution.The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don´t welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde. It´s a town that lives in fear. But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Screaming down with breath-taking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known. Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where he´s been, he realizes he holds a secret that could give the town a fighting chance against the alien force. With the help of the elusive traveller Ella, he pulls together a posse comprised of former opponents - townsfolk, Dolarhyde and his boys, outlaws and Apache warriors - all in danger of annihilation. United against a common enemy, they will prepare for an epic showdown for survival. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Fred Berman.
