Move over, Cinderella: make way for the Turnip Princess! And for the “Cinderfellas” in these stories, which turn our understanding of gender in fairy tales on its head.A rare discovery in the world of fairy tales—now for the first time in EnglishWith this volume, the holy trinity of fairy tales—the Brothers Grimm, Charles Perrault, and Hans Christian Andersen—becomes a quartet. In the 1850s, Franz Xaver von Schönwerth traversed the forests, lowlands, and mountains of northern Bavaria to record fairy tales, gaining the admiration of even the Brothers Grimm. Most of Schönwerth’s work was lost—until a few years ago, when thirty boxes of manuscripts were uncovered in a German municipal archive. Now, for the first time, Schönwerth’s lost fairy tales are available in English. Violent, dark, and full of action, and upending the relationship between damsels in distress and their dragon-slaying heroes, these more than seventy stories bring us closer than ever to the unadorned oral tradition in which fairy tales are rooted, revolutionizing our understanding of a hallowed genre.Available Formats:4.5 hrs • Jun/09/2015 • Unabridged
When you stop trying to do so much, you get so much more done.According to Shaa Wasmund, “You can do anything … but you can’t do everything. At least not at the same time. Many (if not most) of the things that will create your best life are perfectly attainable when you are willing to stop doing what’s not important and start prioritizing what is.”Our culture has made it a badge of honor to be stressed, frazzled, and running on empty—but Wasmund is on a mission to change that. Her book is for everyone who runs from task to task, trying to be all things to all people, never feeling like they have the time or energy to give anything their full attention. She shows that when we embrace a less-is-more attitude, we can appreciate all the good things we already have and find the courage to prune the nonessentials. Only then we can find the space in which to pursue exciting new opportunities.It is often fear that keeps us stuck in our patterns. If we’re super busy, then no one can say we’re not working hard. But there’s another way that’s both more enjoyable and more productive, if only we can break those patterns. Wasmund teaches us how to become experts in the things we’re truly passionate about, rather than mediocre jacks of all trades. Her productivity tools include some strange sounding ideas like using a digital sundown, eating frogs, and batch tasking. Above all, she can help us say “no” to the wrong things so that we’ll have time to say “yes” to the things that really matter—for our careers and personal lives.Available Formats:11.2 hrs • Apr/21/2015 • Unabridged
