To the final page of this dual memoir, Martha and Ken Grimes keep the listener entertained and informed. Double Double is a unique and honest dual memoir of alcoholism, a disease that affects nearly 45 million Americans each year. People who suffer from alcoholism as well as their families and friends know that while it is possible to get sober - there is no one ´´right´´ way to do this. Now, award-winning mystery writer Martha Grimes and her son, Ken Grimes, offer two points of view on their struggles with alcoholism. In alternating chapters, they share their stories - stories of drinking, recovery, relapse, friendship, travel, work, success, and failure. Double Double is an intensely personal, candid and illuminating book, filled with insights, humor, a little self-deprecation, and a lot of self-evaluation. 1. Language: English.

Usually timid and subservient, councilor Golyadkin has lately become worryingly paranoid. After being humiliatingly thrown out of a party for acting erratically, he runs off into the night where he is shocked to come across a man who appears to be his exact double. The double follows him home and begins to insinuate himself into every part of Golyadkin´s life, and alternates between befriending him and cruelly taunting him. Worse still, the double has all the qualities that Golyadkin himself lacks such as charisma, self-assurance, and decisiveness. Considered to be a response to the work of Gogol, this book explores themes of loneliness, individualism and man´s search for identity, told through the eyes of an extremely unreliable individual. Can Golyadkin get rid of the double before he takes over his life completely? Just who is this bizarre man, and why is he persecuting Golyadkin? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alastair Cameron.

Filled with colorful characters and history, Double Entry takes us from the ancient origins of accounting in Mesopotamia to the frontiers of modern finance. At the heart of the story is double-entry bookkeeping: the first system that allowed merchants to actually measure the worth of their businesses. Luca Pacioli - monk, mathematician, alchemist, and friend of Leonardo da Vinci - incorporated Arabic mathematics to formulate a system that could work across all trades and nations. As Jane Gleeson-White reveals, double-entry accounting was nothing short of revolutionary: it fueled the Renaissance, enabled capitalism to flourish, and created the global economy. John Maynard Keynes would use it to calculate GDP, the measure of a nation’s wealth. Yet double-entry accounting has had its failures. With the costs of sudden corporate collapses such as Enron and Lehman Brothers, and its disregard of environmental and human costs, the time may have come to re-create it for the future. 1.

First published in 1846, Fyodor Dostoyevsky´s novella The Double is a classic doppelganger story and the second major work published by the author. It is the story of Yakov Petrovich Golyadkin, a government clerk who believes that a fellow clerk has taken over his identity and is determined to bring about his ruin. Considered the most Gogolesque of Dostoyevsky´s works, the novella brilliantly depicts Golyadkin´s descent into madness in a way that is hauntingly poetic. The Double illustrates Dostoyevsky´s uncanny ability at capturing the complexity of human emotion, especially the darker side of the human psyche. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nick Sullivan.
