From the author of Sticks & Stones, a realistic middle-grade story with a dash of magic about a girl who sees other people´s thoughts in bubbles above their heads. Twelve-year-old Sophie Mulvaney´s world has been turned upside down after her mom loses her job and breaks up with Pratik, who Sophie adored. But then: Sophie starts seeing bubbles above people´s heads that tell her what they are thinking. Seeing other people´s thoughts should be cool, but it´s actually just stressful - what does it mean that Pratik wishes she and mom were eating with him? What does Viv Carlson´s school project have to do with her? And when she finds out through the thought bubbles that her best friend Kaya likes her other best friend, Rafael - the very same Rafael that Sophie has her own crush on - Sophie has to find a way to figure out how to deal with knowing more than she should. 1.

Set in San Francisco in 1956, The Broken Bubble traces the ups and downs and ins and outs of four characters who are not quite sure of the lives they’re living. Jim Briskin, local radio DJ, his ex-wife Pat, the young married couple Art and Rachel Emmanual – all are acutely observed and sympathetically portrayed. Briskin is suspended from his job for refusing to read a particularly repellant ad, while Art foolishly gets mixed up in a group of absurd would-be revolutionaries. As they all get entangled and not quite disentangled with each other, it becomes apparent they are seeking only – in typical Dick fashion – to live more or less happily - if not ever after, then at least for a while. Modest as it may seem, it is an ambition very difficult to achieve. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nick Podehl. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/brll/005601/bk_brll_005601_sample.mp3.

In their 2004 book The Coming Collapse of the Dollar, James Turk and John Rubino advised readers to bet against the housing bubble before it popped and to buy gold before it soared. Those were literally the two best investment ideas of the decade. Now Turk and Rubino are back to say that history is about to repeat. Instead of addressing the causes of the 2008 financial crisis, the world´s governments have continued along the same path, accumulating even more debt and inflating even bigger financial bubbles. So another - even bigger - crisis is coming. Whether it ends up being called a ´´crack-up boom´´ or ´´the End of Paper Money´´ or ´´the Second Great Depression,´´ it will change everything, from the kinds of investments that create new fortunes to the kinds of money that most of us save and spend. Among many other things, the authors explain: How governments are hiding the scope of the problems they face. Why the world´s paper currencies will soon stop functioning as money. How you can protect your savings from the threats posed by this transition from ´´unsound´´ paper currencies to ´´sound´´ money like gold and silver. How you can actually make money - perhaps a lot of it - during this transition. ´´Because the Money Bubble involves the world´s major currencies rather than just a discrete asset class like houses or tech stocks, its bursting will be both far more devastating for the unprepared and far more profitable for those able to understand it and act accordingly. Our goal is to usher you into this small but happy second group.´´ - James Turk and John Rubino, The Money Bubble 1. Language: English. Narrator: Larry Wayne.

Hugely popular when it was first published in 1911, and regarded as a classic ever since, Where the Money Grows is an honest, humorous, and richly perceptive tour of Wall Street and its enduring customs, institutions, and characters. The Street, according to author Garet Garrett, is a world populated not only by bulls and bears, but also by ´´wolves´´, ´´hoodoos´´, and ´´invisibles´´. You´ll meet them all in this immensely entertaining and revealing book. Also included is a scintillating article, ´´Anatomy of the Bubble´´, originally published in the Saturday Evening Post. In piercing prose, Garrett unmasks the ´´debt´´ bubble and displays uncanny prescience. Debt, it would seem, can be every bit as dangerous as manias and other ´´irrational exuberance´´. 1.
