Baruch Spinoza was one of the most important and controversial thinkers of the 17th century. He rejected both the mind-body dualism of Descartes and traditional religious views, which got him violently attacked for atheism while he was actually seeking to redefine God as the whole of the laws of Nature. His metaphysics are a brilliant attempt to reconcile human freedom with a belief in scientific explanation, and his Theological-Political Treatise, the first argument for democracy by a major philosopher, contributed as much as the Declaration of Independence or Thomas Paine´s Common Sense to modern liberal, secular, and democratic thinking. Discover the gist of Spinoza´s philosophy with this selection of 100 quotes taken among his most influential, in a practical and accessible format. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Spera.

This is a summary of Ron Chernow´s Alexander Hamilton (2004), a voluminous book that chronicles the life and legacy of one of America´s Founding Fathers. Alexander Hamilton gained prominence as one of America´s Founding Fathers and leader of the Federalist Party. And as a Federalist, he was a major proponent for a strong centralized government. A true patriot, Hamilton was a very versatile man. He earned a law degree, worked alongside George Washington, helped draft the Federalist Papers, and became the first secretary of the treasury. Long after his death, Hamilton remains a significant political figure in the history of the United States. Hamilton had a less than privileged childhood by any standards. His date of birth was never verified, but it was officially documented that he was born on January 11, 1755, in Nevis in the British West Indies. Born to unmarried parents, Hamilton grew up in poverty and had little formal education, unlike the other Founding Fathers. At an early age, he took an apprenticeship with merchant Thomas Stevens.

From Mike Pesca, host of the popular Slate podcast The Gist, comes the greatest sports minds imagining how the world would change if a play, trade, injury, or referee´s call had just gone the other way. No announcer ever proclaimed: ´´Up Rises Frazier!´´ ´´Havlicek commits the foul, trying to steal the ball!´´, or ´´The Giants Lose the Pennant, The Giants Lose The Pennant!´´ Such moments are indelibly etched upon the mind of every sports fan. Or rather, they would be, had they happened. Sports are notoriously games of inches, and when we conjure the thought of certain athletes - like Bill Buckner or Scott Norwood - we can´t help but apply a mental tape measure to the highlight reels of our minds. Players, coaches, and of course fans, obsess on the play when they ask, ´´What if?´´ Upon Further Review is the first audiobook to answer that question. Upon Further Review is an audiobook of counterfactual sporting scenarios. Inside the listener will hear expertly reported histories, where one small event is flipped on its head, and the resulting ripples are carefully documented, the likes of... What if the US boycotted Hitler´s Olympics? What if Bobby Riggs beat Billie Jean King? What if Bucky Dent popped out at the foot of the Green Monster? What if Drew Bledsoe never got hurt? Upon Further Review takes classic arguments conducted over pints in a pub and places them in the hands of dozens of writers, athletes, and historians. From turning points that every sports fan rues or celebrates to the forgotten would-be inflection points that defined sports, Upon Further Review answers age-old questions, and settles the score, even if the score bounced off the crossbar. Full cast of narrators includes Shira Springer, Peter Thomas Fornatale, Jesse Eisenberg, Ben Lindbergh, Jonathan Hock, Mary Pilon, Steve Kornacki, Louisa Thomas, Nate DiMeo, Jeremy Schaap, Neil Pain, Will Leit... 1.

This is a summary of Timothy Egan´s The Immortal Irishman: The Irish Revolutionary Who Became an American Hero From the National Book Award-winning and best-selling author Timothy Egan comes the epic story of one of the most fascinating and colorful Irishman in 19th-century America. The Irish-American story, with all its twists and triumphs, is told through the improbable life of one man. A dashing young orator during the Great Famine of the 1840s, in which a million of his Irish countrymen died, Thomas Francis Meagher led a failed uprising against British rule, for which he was banished to a Tasmanian prison colony. He escaped and six months later was heralded in the streets of New York - the revolutionary hero, back from the dead, at the dawn of the great Irish immigration to America. Meagher´s rebirth in America included his leading the newly formed Irish Brigade from New York in many of the fiercest battles of the Civil War - Bull Run, Antietam, and Fredericksburg. Twice shot from his horse while leading charges, left for dead in the Virginia mud, Meagher´s dream was that Irish-American troops, seasoned by war, would return to Ireland and liberate their homeland from British rule. The hero´s last chapter, as territorial governor of Montana, was a romantic quest for a true home in the far frontier. His death has long been a mystery to which Egan brings haunting, colorful new evidence.
