    Synopsis
    A compelling journey into the science and behavior of psychopaths, written by the leading scientist in the field of criminal psychopathy.We know of psychopaths from chilling headlines and stories in the news and movies—from Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy, to Hannibal Lecter and Dexter Morgan. As Dr. Kent Kiehl shows, psychopaths can be identified by a checklist of symptoms that includes pathological lying; lack of empathy, guilt, and remorse; grandiose sense of self-worth; manipulation; and failure to accept one’s actions. But why do psychopaths behave the way they do? Is it the result of their environment— how they were raised—or is there a genetic compo­nent to their lack of conscience?This is the question Kiehl, a protégé of famed psychopath researcher Dr. Robert Hare, was deter­mined to answer as he began his career twenty years ago. To aid in his quest to unravel the psy­chopathic mind, Kiehl created the first mobile functional MRI scanner to study psychopaths in prison populations. The brains of more than five hundred psychopaths and three thousand other offenders have been scanned by Kiehl’s labora­tory—the world’s largest forensic neuroscience repository of its kind. Over the course of The Psychopath Whisperer, we follow the scientific bread crumbs that Kiehl uncovered to show that the key brain structures that correspond with emotional engagement and reactions are diminished in psy­chopaths, offering new clues to how to predict and treat the disorder.In The Psychopath Whisperer, Kiehl describes in fascinating detail his years working with psy­chopaths and studying their thought processes— from the remorseless serial killers he meets with behind bars to children whose behavior and per­sonality traits exhibit the early warning signs of psychopathy.Less than 1 percent of the general population meets the criteria for psychopathy. But psycho­paths account for a vastly outsized proportion of violent crimes. And as Kiehl shows, many who aren’t psychopaths exhibit some of the behaviors and traits associated with the condition. What do you do if you discover your roommate, or boss, or the person you are dating has traits that define a psy­chopath? And what does having a diminished limbic region of the brain mean for how the legal system approaches crimes committed by psychopaths?A compelling narrative of cutting-edge science, The Psychopath Whisperer will open your eyes on a fascinating but little understood world, with startling implications for society, the law, and our personal lives.

    Synopsis
    ‘By day we were learning logarithms, but by night, in the backs of panel vans and down on Cronulla beach, we paid off the friendship rings our boyfriends gave us …’ Puberty – riddled with anxieties and humiliations – is the time every girl has to go through and no woman forgets. For Deb and Sue it was a time when only ‘top chicks’ survived – and getting into the cool beach gang with the ‘spunkrat surfies’ was all that mattered. Social hierarchies had to be respected and sexual hurdles overcome – whether the girls were ready or not … Kathy Lette’s seminal first novel Puberty Blues, written with Gabrielle Carey when they were teenagers, is a hilarious but horrifying story of the way many young people live, and some of them die. This raw and guileless novel is as painfully true today as ever – and ultimately affirms that whatever else is taken from you, you must never lose the spirit to get out. Fasten your psychological seat belts – this audio book is a bumpy ride. “Puberty Blues is a profoundly moral story” — Germaine Greer

    Synopsis
    In this sequel to Fugitive Days, Ayers charts his life after the Weather Underground, when he becomes the GOP's flaunted “domestic terrorist,” a “public enemy.” Labeled a 'domestic terrorist' by the McCain campaign in 2008 and used by the radical right in an attempt to castigate Obama for 'pallin' around with terrorists,' Bill Ayers is in fact a dedicated teacher, father, and social justice advocate with a sharp memory and even sharper wit. Public Enemy tells his story from the moment he and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, emerged after years on the run and rebuilt their lives as public figures, often celebrated for their community work and much hated by the radical right. In the face of defamation by conservative media, including a multimillion-dollar campaign aimed solely at demonizing Ayers, and in spite of frequent death threats, Bill and Bernardine stay true to their core beliefs in the power of protest, demonstration, and deep commitment. Ayers reveals how he has navigated the challenges and triumphs of this public life with steadfastness and a dash of good humor—from the red carpet at the Oscars, to prison vigils and airports (where he is often detained and where he finally 'confesses' that he did write Dreams from My Father), and ultimately on the ground at Grant Park in 2008 and again in 2012.
