NORTH by Scott Jurek with Jenny Jurek Read by the Authors – Audiobook Excerpt by HachetteAudio

http://ift.tt/2FrCYje

From the author of the bestseller Eat and Run, a thrilling new memoir about his grueling, exhilarating, and immensely inspiring 46-day run to break the speed record for the Appalachian Trail.

Scott Jurek is one of the world’s best known and most beloved ultrarunners. Renowned for his remarkable endurance and speed, accomplished on a vegan diet, he’s finished first in nearly all of ultrarunning’s elite events over the course of his career. But after two decades of racing, training, speaking, and touring, Jurek felt an urgent need to discover something new about himself. He embarked on a wholly unique challenge, one that would force him to grow as a person and as an athlete: breaking the speed record for the Appalachian Trail. North is the story of the 2,189-mile journey that nearly shattered him.

When he set out in the spring of 2015, Jurek anticipated punishing terrain, forbidding weather, and inevitable injuries. He would have to run nearly 50 miles a day, every day, for almost seven weeks. He knew he would be pushing himself to the limit, that comfort and rest would be in short supply — but he couldn’t have imagined the physical and emotional toll the trip would exact, nor the rewards it would offer.

With his wife, Jenny, friends, and the kindness of strangers supporting him, Jurek ran, hiked, and stumbled his way north, one white blaze at a time. A stunning narrative of perseverance and personal transformation, North is a portrait of a man stripped bare on the most demanding and transcendent effort of his life. It will inspire runners and non-runners alike to keep striving for their personal best.

ASK ME ABOUT MY UTERUS by Abby Norman Read by the Author – Audiobook Excerpt by HachetteAudio

http://ift.tt/2oni4XQ

For any woman who has experienced illness, chronic pain, or endometriosis comes an inspiring memoir advocating for recognition of women’s health issues
In the fall of 2010, Abby Norman’s strong dancer’s body dropped forty pounds and gray hairs began to sprout from her temples. She was repeatedly hospitalized in excruciating pain, but the doctors insisted it was a urinary tract infection and sent her home with antibiotics. Unable to get out of bed, much less attend class, Norman dropped out of college and embarked on what would become a years-long journey to discover what was wrong with her. It wasn’t until she took matters into her own hands–securing a job in a hospital and educating herself over lunchtime reading in the medical library–that she found an accurate diagnosis of endometriosis.

In Ask Me About My Uterus, Norman describes what it was like to have her pain dismissed, to be told it was all in her head, only to be taken seriously when she was accompanied by a boyfriend who confirmed that her sexual performance was, indeed, compromised. Putting her own trials into a broader historical, sociocultural, and political context, Norman shows that women’s bodies have long been the battleground of a never-ending war for power, control, medical knowledge, and truth. It’s time to refute the belief that being a woman is a preexisting condition.

STING-RAY AFTERNOONS, written by Steve Rushin, read byGreg Baglia – Audiobooks Clips by HachetteAudio

http://ift.tt/2v8yrwC

A bittersweet, funny memoir of childhood told through a tour of 1970s America via its objects, history, and culture.

——–

Steve Rushin’s childhood featured Bic Pen spitball launchers, Mr. Clean and Scrubbing Bubbles, light sabers and Schwinn bikes, and a father whose job was selling 8-track tapes for 3M. In STINGRAY AFTERNOONS, he uses the objects of ’70s America to tell the story of a father, and a family that seems right out of That ’70s Show — and begins to go its own ways at the dawn of the ’80s.

A rare talent able to blend the laugh out loud funny with tender moments, Rushin invites readers into his childhood. His observations of America during this period — its litterbugs, leaded gas, and cultural rebirth — add up to a powerful memoir and a poignant look at a family that you’ll want to share with every child of the ’70s you know.
