From award-winning sportswriter John Feinstein, The Prodigy is a YA audiobook about a teen golfer poised to blaze his way into Masters Tournament history - and he’ll face secrecy, sacrifice, and the decision of a lifetime to get there. Seventeen-year-old Frank Baker is a golfing sensation. He’s set to earn a full-ride scholarship to play at the university of his choice, but his single dad wants him to skip college and turn pro - golf has taken its toll on the family bank account, and his dad is eager to start cashing in on his son’s prowess. Frank knows he isn’t ready for life on the pro tour - regardless of the potential riches - so his swing coach enlists a professional golfer turned journalist to be Frank’s secret adviser. Pressure mounts when, after reaching the final of the US Amateur tournament, Frank wins an automatic invite to the Masters. And when the prodigy, against all odds, starts tearing up the course at Augusta National, sponsors are lined up to throw money at him - and his father. But Frank’s entry in the Masters hinges on maintaining his standing as an amateur. Can he and his secret adviser - who has his own conflicts - keep Frank’s dad at bay long enough to bring home the legendary green jacket? 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Feinstein.

This book will be about the basics of saving money. Whether it's an emergency fund, cutting back on some stuff, or alternative means of saving, there are ways to make your goal by putting some aside. First I will discuss the importance of an emergency fund. An emergency fund will help you prepare for life's unexpected events. Second I discuss about having the fun fund and the Christmas fund. I don't discuss that much about the fun fund in this book, but I do the Christmas fund. It's better to put some away in advance just so you have the money for Christmas. It is frustrating not to have that money when you need it the most. Third, I discuss about cutbacks that we can make for our finances, whether it is on your coffee, on cable, or on your Internet. There are ways to cut back when you need to for your goal. Lastly, I discuss the alternative means of saving such as putting left over money in the savings and putting left over cash in the safe. I discuss the importance of saving all your change and then cashing it in at a later date, plus the importance of automating it. There are ways where you can automatically send your money in your bank to your savings at the end of the month. These are some ideas about saving money. I know I didn't cover everything in this book, but I did my best to cover the basics. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ken Eaken.

After a five-year sabbatical following the tragic death of his wife and fellow agent, Alysha, Keona Rause returns to the distant colony world of Magenta to resume service with the Magentan Intelligence Service. With him he brings an artificial re-creation of his wife's personality, a simulacrum built from every digital trace she left behind. She has been constructed with one purpose - to discover the truth behind her own death - but Keona's relationship with her has grown into something more, something frighteningly dependent, something that verges on love. Cashing in old favours, Keona uses his return to the service to take on a series of cases that allow him and the artificial Alysha to piece together his wife's last days. His investigations lead him inexorably along the same paths Alysha followed five years earlier, to a sinister and deadly group with an unhealthy fascination with the unknowable alien Masters. But as the wider world of Magenta is threatened with an imminent crisis, Keona finds himself in a dilemma: do his duty and stand with his team to expose a villainous crime, or sacrifice them all for the truth about his wife?

The United States has two separate banking systems today - one serving the well-to-do and another exploiting everyone else. How the Other Half Banks contributes to the growing conversation on American inequality by highlighting one of its prime causes: unequal credit. Mehrsa Baradaran examines how a significant portion of the population, deserted by banks, is forced to wander through a Wild West of payday lenders and check-cashing services to cover emergency expenses and pay for necessities - all thanks to deregulation that began in the 1970s and continues decades later. In an age of corporate megabanks with trillions of dollars in assets, it is easy to forget that America's banking system was originally created as a public service. Banks have always relied on credit from the federal government, provided on favorable terms so that they could issue low-interest loans. But as banks grew in size and political influence, they shed their social contract with the American people, demanding to be treated as a private industry free from any public-serving responsibility. They abandoned less profitable, low-income customers in favor of wealthier clients and high-yield investments. Fringe lenders stepped in to fill the void. This two-tier banking system has become even more unequal since the 2008 financial crisis. Baradaran proposes a solution: reenlisting the US Post Office in its historic function of providing bank services. The post office played an important but largely forgotten role in the creation of American democracy, and it could be deployed again to level the field of financial opportunity. 1. Language: English.
