    This true, soul-baring story of grief, tragedy, and eventual triumph will have you listening intently, alternately laughing and crying. The author, consumed by grief, banished himself to a strange mountain called Mt Bandi Bandi, in the western hills of New South Wales in Australia. When a young man arrived with a strange story to tell, they became a team, building a house using their bare hands and very modest tools. Soon others joined, driven by their own demons. They began to accept the magic of the mountain. The sacred mountain gave, and it took away.

    It’s a freezing winter’s night in 1954. A baby boy, a few hours old, is left by his mother, wrapped in nothing but two sheets of newspaper and hidden amongst the undergrowth by a canal bank. An hour later, a late-shift postman is walking wearily home when he hears a faint cry. He finds the newspaper parcel and discovers the newborn, white-cold and whimpering, inside. After being rushed to hospital and against all odds, the baby survives. He’s baptised by the hospital chaplain as Richard.

    Professor David Wilson has spent his professional life working with violent men - especially men who have committed murder. Aged 29 he became, at that time, the UK's youngest ever prison governor in charge of a jail, and his career since then has seen him sat across a table with all sorts of killers: sometimes in a tense interview; sometimes sharing a cup of tea (or something a little stronger); sometimes looking them in the eye to tell them that they are psychopaths.

    On the eighth day, God created sexual intercourse. And it was good. But for girls like Dani Fankhauser who were told sex was to happen only once you cross the threshold of marriage, that “goodness” seemed...questionable. As young women, we learned how to say no to sex but not how to ask a guy to put on a condom. We were told to limit physical affection because it undermined love but not how to deal with our own desires and drive. Our own bodies, and their capacity for pleasure, were left a mystery.

    Germany was a deeply divided nation when Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party came to power in 1933. As the shadow of the swastika lengthened, its citizens quickly came to realize that the Nazis' brutal programme was not optional. Everyone was expected to play their part in "national revival", especially those chosen as sacrificial victims.  Life in the Third Reich draws on the recollections of those who lived through the rise and fall of one of the most vicious and sadistic regimes the world has ever seen.

    By the age of 13, vulnerable Sheffield teenager Samantha Owens had fallen through the cracks in the care system. Bounced around numerous foster carers after her home life became too chaotic, Samantha thought she had found a friend in the streetwise Amanda Spencer. The older girl bought her clothes, styled her hair and found her places to stay. Samantha's welfare was the last thing on Spencer's mind, however, as in reality she was grooming the young girl for exploitation of the worst possible kind.

    Imagine a simple thing like a round stone underfoot or an unnoticed overhead danger, and how quickly life can take a dramatic turn. For Iain MacLeod, it was a slippery mattress cover. Iain MacLeod's memoir draws us into the experience of those who live with a physical disability, and it speaks to the challenges they must overcome on a daily basis. “Billions of people get out of bed every day without any problem, but when I got out of bed that day, it went horribly wrong,” says MacLeod, a Scotsman with Cerebral Palsy.

    The Circuit des Champs de Bataille (the Tour of the Battlefields) was held in 1919, less than six months after the end of the First World War. It covered 2,000 kilometres and was raced in appalling conditions across the battlefields of the Western Front, otherwise known as the Zone Rouge. The race was so tough that only 21 riders finished, and it was never staged again. With one of the most demanding routes ever to feature in a bicycle race, and plagued by appalling weather conditions, the Circuit des Champs de Bataille was beyond gruelling, but today its story is largely forgotten.

    These are the recollections of a draftee assigned to an infantry platoon in an air cavalry troop. BlueGhost Reveille follows me as a 22-year-old as I became a squad leader and then Platoon Sergeant during the war in Vietnam. The pieces of this audiobook are as factual as 50-year-old memories will allow. There is no intentional fiction in this work. The stories are about everyday life during this year in a combat unit. Some pieces are mundane, some are humorous, and the parts about going to serious war will get your heart up in your throat.
