Canada's premiere rock radio interviewer and radio series host, Jeff Woods, narrates the audio version of his acclaimed first nonfiction book, featuring a nostalgic romp through his own career in radio and records, alternating between that and exclusive conversations with the legends of rock. Woods has followed his passion wherever it’s taken him. Radio, Records & Rockstars takes you behind the curtain, revealing what's happened to radio as Jeff also reveals the unvarnished truth of his own storied life, including his professional and romantic peaks and valleys. This work of reflection and conversation relates the stumbles and defeats, truths and triumphs of the artists who will go down in history as helping to define a generation - and of the man who has long brought their stories to listeners across Canada and those tuning in from the USA and around the world. 1.

Next generation companies don't just cater to existing markets, they create new ones - and they pay Henry Maddox top dollar to show them how. Maddox uses sophisticated marketing strategies to break apart large markets into smaller, more profitable, consumption hungry ones. Combined with modern data mining (known as big data), these techniques allow companies to not only profit from consumers, but control them. But when Henry is forced to face how his techniques affect real people, he realizes he has inadvertently given corporations the power to destroy society for their own ends. The Curtain explores the effect that increasingly sophisticated data manipulation has on our communities, families, and daily lives. In an age of digital distractions, who remembers the transcendent morality that has made past civilizations prosper? When corporations have the technology and motive to pull people apart, what keeps us together? 1. Language: English. Narrator: R. C. Bray.

By one expert's prediction, within 20 years half of Americans will have body implants that tell retailers how they feel about specific products as they browse their local stores. The notion may be outlandish, but it reflects executives' drive to understand shoppers in the aisles with the same obsessive detail that they track us online. In fact, a hidden surveillance revolution is already taking place inside brick-and-mortar stores, where Americans still do most of their buying. Drawing on his interviews with retail executives, analysis of trade publications, and experiences at insider industry meetings, advertising and digital studies expert Joseph Turow pulls back the curtain on these trends, showing how a new hyper-competitive generation of merchants - including Macy's, Target, and Walmart - is already using data mining, in-store tracking, and predictive analytics to change the way we buy, undermine our privacy, and define our reputations. 1.

Dorfman's supremely relatable personality has inspired incredible devotion from her fans, who follow her every move on social media.

In a world violated by terror, the old lines have blurred. Meet the next generation of covert ops. John Dempsey's life - as an elite Tier One Navy SEAL named Jack Kemper - is over. A devastating terrorist action catapults him from a world of moral certainty and decisive orders into the shadowy realm of espionage, where ambiguity is the only rule. His new mission: hunt down those responsible for the greatest tragedy in the history of the US Special Ops and bring them to justice. But how does a man torn between duty and revenge walk the line and preserve his soul? As Dempsey struggles with the games of spies, the case propels him across the globe in a desperate effort to prevent a new, horrifying attack on American soil. Once, John Dempsey followed orders blindly. Now he sees behind the curtain, and the security of the civilized world rests on one question: Can a Tier One Navy SEAL adapt and become the world's most lethal spy? 1. Language: English.

Scaling a new peak of rash overambition, Tim Moore tackles the 9,000 kilometer route of the old Iron Curtain on a tiny-wheeled, two-geared East German shopping bike. Asking for trouble and getting it, he sets off from the northernmost Norwegian-Russian border at the Arctic winter's brutal height, bullying his plucky MIFA 900 through the endless and massively subzero desolation of snowbound Finland. Sleeping in bank vaults, imperial palaces and unreconstructed Soviet youth hostels, battling vodka-breathed Russian hostility, Romanian landslides and a diet of dumplings, Moore and his 'so-small bicycle' are sustained by the kindness of reindeer farmers and Serbian rock gods, plus a shameful addiction to Magic Man energy drink. Haunted throughout by the border detritus of watchtowers and rusted razor wire, Moore reflects on the curdling of the Communist dream and the memories of a Cold War generation reared on the fear of apocalypse - at a time of ratcheting East-West tension. After three months, 20 countries and a 58 degree jaunt up the centigrade scale, man and bike finally wobble up to a Black Sea beach in Bulgaria, older and wiser, but mainly older. 1.

The author was accused of sabotage on the 10th anniversary of the 1956 revolution. He was 17 years old. He tried to escape through the Hungarian-Yugoslav border with one of his classmates. Caught by border patrol, he was jailed and treated very badly. He barely survived the month-long ordeal. Stamped as an enemy of the state, he was taken to a labor camp at age 19. He had to do forced labor instead of regular military service. Against all odds, he was able to break free from the communist bloc at age 23. Of course, given the brainwashing his generation was subjected to, when he reached the Italian shore, swimming from Yugoslavia during a night in August of 1973, his quest for freedom was just beginning. After spending six months in Italy, he was admitted to the US as a political refuge. In 1976, after the Communist governments signed the Human Rights Declaration at the 1975 Helsinki Conference, he believed that the amnesty the Hungarian government issued was credible and returned to his homeland. How he managed to free himself again, and survive the torture he had to endure when captured on the Yugoslav-Italian border in the fall of 1977, is also described in Escapes from Behind the Iron Curtain. 1.
