As a fourteen-year-old, he was Malcolm Little, the president of his class and a top student. At sixteen, he was hustling tips at a Boston nightclub. In Harlem, he was known as Detroit Red, a slick street operator. At nineteen, he was back in Boston, leading a gang of burglars. At twenty, he was in prison. It was in prison that Malcolm Little started the journey that would lead him to adopt the name Malcolm X, and there he developed his beliefs about what being black means in America—beliefs that shook America then and still shake America today. Walter Dean Myers’ classic biography sheds light on a black man whose beliefs changed America.Available Formats: Download, Digital Rental0.9 hrs • Jan/15/2013
The Negotiator in You: Sales is an audiobook specifically geared to people who sell anything and everything. Salespeople negotiate constantly with prospective and existing clients, and internally with bosses and representatives of other divisions. Moreover, salespeople are vulnerable to external forces that either enhance or severely limit their efforts during negotiations. In this audiobook, salespeople will learn to overcome the following key challenges: short-term gratification (making the sale) vs. long-term (building the relationship); giving away more than necessary; taking lessons from one negotiation and transferring them; negotiating up, down, and sideways; mapping the players and getting alignment; ensuring that an agreement makes sense for you and your company; retaining your profit margin and still getting the deal done; and dealing with difficult customers—while still making the sale.Available Formats: Download, Digital Rental6.8 hrs • Dec/11/2012 • Unabridged

Candide, published simultaneously in five European capitals in 1759, became an instant bestseller and is now regarded as one of the key texts of the Enlightenment. Voltaire’s preoccupations with evil and with various kinds of human folly and intolerance found a perfect vehicle in the philosophical tale. A master storyteller, he combined often wildly entertaining action with profoundly serious sense, parodying the traditional chivalric and oriental tales with which his public was more familiar to create a witty allegory of a young man whose optimism gives way to disillusionment after a series of terrible misfortunes.Available Formats: Download, Digital Rental6.9 hrs • Oct/16/2012 • Unabridged
