Oprah Winfrey

"[Oprah Winfrey and Bruce D. Perry] are both capable, likable narrators who are sincerely engaged with their subject matter...The performances of these two humanitarians make this a must-hear for anyone recovering from their traumatic past." -- AudioFile Magazine

This program is read by the authors.

Our earliest experiences shape our lives far down the road, and What Happened to You? provides powerful scientific and emotional insights into the behavioral patterns so many of us struggle to understand.


“Through this lens we can build a renewed sense of personal self-worth and ultimately recalibrate our responses to circumstances, situations, and relationships. It is, in other words, the key to reshaping our very lives.”—Oprah Winfrey

This audiobook is going to change the way you see your life.

Have you ever wondered "Why did I do that?" or "Why can't I just control my behavior?" Others may judge our reactions and think, "What's wrong with that person?" When questioning our emotions, it's easy to place the blame on ourselves; holding ourselves and those around us to an impossible standard. It's time we started asking a different question.

Through deeply personal conversations, Oprah Winfrey and renowned brain and trauma expert Dr. Bruce Perry offer a groundbreaking and profound shift from asking “What’s wrong with you?” to “What happened to you?”

Here, Winfrey shares stories from her own past, understanding through experience the vulnerability that comes from facing trauma and adversity at a young age. In conversation throughout the audiobook, she and Dr. Perry focus on understanding people, behavior, and ourselves. It’s a subtle but profound shift in our approach to trauma, and it’s one that allows us to understand our pasts in order to clear a path to our future—opening the door to resilience and healing in a proven, powerful way.

#1 New York Times Bestseller

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.

For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.

There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

“Un capolavoro del giallo e del mistero! L’autore ha svolto un magnifico lavoro, a sviluppare i personaggi con un approfondito lato psicologico, così ben descritto, che ci fa sentire all’interno della loro mente, provare le loro paure e gioire del loro successo. La trama è molto intelligente e vi intratterrà per tutta la durata del libro. Ricco di colpi di scena, questo libro vi terrà svegli fino all’ultima pagina.”

KILLER PER CASO è il libro #5 nella serie di bestseller dei misteri di Riley Paige, che comincia con il KILER DELLA ROSA, bestseller (Libro #1)—un romanzo scaricabile gratuitamente, con oltre 600 recensioni da cinque stelle! 

Un’evasione da una prigione di massima sicurezza. Chiamate frenetiche dell’FBI. Il peggior incubo dell’Agente Speciale Riley Paige è divenuto realtà: un serial killer che ha catturare anni fa è a piede libero.

E il suo obiettivo principale è lei.

Riley è abituata a dare lei la caccia, ma per la prima volta, si ritrova—insieme alla sua famiglia—ad essere la preda della caccia. Mentre il killer la perseguita, al contempo, lascia dietro di sé una scia di morte, e Riley deve fermarlo prima che sia troppo tardi—per le altre vittime, e per se stessa.

Ma questo non è un killer ordinario. E’ fin troppo intelligente, e il loro gioco del gatto col topo troppo contorto, e in qualche modo, riesce ad eluderla e a stare sempre ad un passo avanti a lei. Disperata di fermarlo, Riley si rende conto che c’è un solo modo: deve immergersi nel passato, nella contorta mente del killer, nei suoi vecchi casi e riapprendere quale sia la sua causa scatenante. L’unico modo di fermarlo, lei si rende conto, è affrontare l’oscurità che pensava di essersi lasciata alle spalle.

Un cupo thriller psicologico, caratterizzato da una suspense mozzafiato, KILLER PER CASO è il libro #5 in un’affascinante nuova serie—con un nuovo amato personaggio—che vi terrà incollati alle pagine fino a notte fonda. 

Il libro #6 nella serie di Riley Paige sarà presto disponibile.


“Un fantasy pieno zeppo di azione che sicuramente verrà apprezzato dai fan dei precedenti romanzi di Morgan Rice insieme ai sostenitori di opere come il CICLO DELL’EREDITÀ di Christopher Paolini... Amanti del fantasy per ragazzi divoreranno quest'ultima opera della Rice e imploreranno di averne ancora.”

--The Wanderer, A Literary Journal (Parlando de L'Ascesa dei Draghi)

LA NOTTE DEL VALORO è il libro numero #6—e l’ultimo capitolo—nella serie fantasy epico campione d’incassi di Morgan Rice, RE E STREGONI (che ha inizio con L’ASCESA DEI DRAGHI, disponibile per il download gratuito)!

In LA NOTTE DEL VALOROSO, Kyra deve trovare un modo di liberarsi da Marda e fare ritorno ad Escalon con il Bastone della Verità. Se ci riuscirà, troverà ad aspettarla la più epica battaglia della sua vita e dovrà affrontare gli eserciti di Ra, una nazione di troll e un branco di draghi. Se i suoi poteri e l’arma di cui è in possesso saranno abbastanza forti, sua madre la aspetterà, pronta a rivelarle i segreti del suo destino e della sua nascita.

Duncan dovrà resistere in maniera epica contro gli eserciti di Ra una volta per tutte. Ma anche se combatte la più grandiosa battaglia della sua vita, conducendo i suoi uomini all’attacco nella Gola del Diavolo, non può certo aspettarsi l’oscuro inganno che Ra ha preparato per lui.

Nella Baia della Morte, Merk e la figlia di re Tarnis devono unirsi ad Alec e ai guerrieri delle Isole Perdute per combattere contro i draghi. Devono trovare Duncan e unirsi a lui per salvare Escalon, anche se Vesuvio è tornato a galla e non possono immaginare l’inganno che li attende.

Nel finale epico di Re e Stregoni, le battaglia più drammatiche, le armi e la stregoneria porteranno tutte insieme a una conclusione inaspettata e mozzafiato, piena di tragedia da spezzare il cuore e rinascita ispiratrice.

Con la sua forte atmosfera e i suoi personaggi complessi, LA NOTTE DEL VALOROSO è una saga di cavalieri e guerrieri, re e signori, onore e valore, magia, destino, mostri e draghi. È una storia di amore e cuori spezzati, di inganno, ambizione e tradimento. È un fantasy perfetto, che ci porta in un mondo che vivrà in noi per sempre e che incanterà lettori di ogni età.

“Se pensavate che non ci fosse più alcuna ragione di vita dopo la fine della serie L’ANELLO DELLO STREGONE, vi sbagliavate. In L’ASCESA DEI DRAGHI Morgan Rice è arrivata a ciò che promette di essere un’altra brillante saga, immergendoci in un mondo fantastico fatto di troll e draghi, di valore, onore e coraggio, magia e fede nel proprio destino. Morgan è riuscita di nuovo a creare un forte insieme di personaggi che ci faranno tifare per loro pagina dopo pagina… Consigliato per la biblioteca permanente di tutti i lettori amanti dei fantasy ben scritti.”

In the near future, every nation in the world has to eliminate 5% of their population, as mandated by the United Nations. The United States chose THE THINNING -- the act of eliminating students in every grade who scores a C or lower. Schools annually go under a lock-down procedure in which all students take a standardized test. The Thinning became the prevailing method in the United States as it was heavily backed by powerful political figures. The PR spin that helped to sell most civilians is that it "Keeps America competitive and ahead in Innovation".

Blake, 17, finds himself at odds with the status quo. The son of a powerful Governor, Blake intends to send a message to the country by purposefully failing his final exam and being sent to the thinning. Blake's father Dean, 42, is a staunch supporter of the Thinning and will do whatever it takes to defend it… even having his son’s failed exam switched with another student’s passing exam.

Laina, 17, a diligent, hard-working student, has worked her entire life to be the best in her class. Laina is rattled to find out that she did not make the grade and will be sent to the thinning, leaving her two younger siblings behind. Unwilling to die unjustly, Laina escapes the shackles of euthanasia to prove her own innocence and vows to uncover the truth.

Once Blake purposefully fails the test but finds out he has passed, he and Laina begin to investigate and uncover an elaborate conspiracy behind the scenes of the government and the entire thinning program.
From the bestselling author of Blood, Sweat, and Pixels comes the next definitive, behind-the-scenes account of the video game industry: how some of the past decade's most renowned studios fell apart—and the stories, both triumphant and tragic, of what happened next.

Jason Schreier's groundbreaking reporting has earned him a place among the preeminent investigative journalists covering the world of video games. In his eagerly anticipated, deeply researched new book, Schreier trains his investigative eye on the volatility of the video game industry and the resilience of the people who work in it.

The business of videogames is both a prestige industry and an opaque one. Based on dozens of first-hand interviews that cover the development of landmark games—Bioshock Infinite, Epic Mickey, Dead Space, and more—on to the shocking closures of the studios that made them, Press Reset tells the stories of how real people are affected by game studio shutdowns, and how they recover, move on, or escape the industry entirely.

Schreier's insider interviews cover hostile takeovers, abusive bosses, corporate drama, bounced checks, and that one time the Boston Red Sox's Curt Schilling decided he was going to lead a game studio that would take out World of Warcraft. Along the way, he asks pressing questions about why, when the video game industry is more successful than ever, it's become so hard to make a stable living making video games—and whether the business of making games can change before it's too late.
Beauty and glamour meet deception and revenge in this electrifying novel by New York Times bestselling author Amanda Quick

Investigative apprentice Lyra Brazier, the newest resident of Burning Cove, is unsettled when her boss suddenly disappears. Lyra knows something has happened to Raina Kirk, and tracks down her last known appearance at an exclusive hotel and health spa. The health spa is known for its luxurious offerings and prestigious clientele, and the wealthy, socialite background Lyra desperately wanted to leave behind is perfect for this undercover job. What Lyra lacks in investigative experience she makes up for in gut instinct, and her gut isn’t happy that she’s saddled with a partner by Luther Pell, Raina’s dangerous lover, who wants to bring in someone with more experience to help.  

Instead of the suave, pistol-packing private eye she expected, though, Simon Cage is a mild-mannered antiquarian book dealer with a quiet, academic air, and a cool, remote gaze. Lyra suspects that Simon is much more than what he seems, and her instincts are confirmed when they arrive at the spa and pose as a couple: Simon has a unique gift that allows him to detect secrets, a skill that is crucial in finding Raina. 

The unlikely duo falls down a rabbit hole of twisted rumors and missing socialites, discovering that the health spa is a façade for something far darker than they imagined. With a murderer in their midst, Raina isn't the only one in grave danger—Lyra is next.
Do you ever think you’re the only one making any sense? Or tried to reason with your partner with disastrous results? Do long, rambling answers drive you crazy? Or does your colleague’s abrasive manner rub you the wrong way?

You are not alone. After a disastrous meeting with a highly successful entrepreneur, who was genuinely convinced he was ‘surrounded by idiots’, communication expert and bestselling author, Thomas Erikson dedicated himself to understanding how people function and why we often struggle to connect with certain types of people.

Surrounded by Idiots is an international phenomenon, selling over 1.5 million copies worldwide. It offers a simple, yet ground-breaking method for assessing the personalities of people we communicate with – in and out of the office – based on four personality types (Red, Blue, Green and Yellow), and provides insights into how we can adjust the way we speak and share information.

Erikson will help you understand yourself better, hone communication and social skills, handle conflict with confidence, improve dynamics with your boss and team, and get the best out of the people you deal with and manage. He also shares simple tricks on body language, improving written communication, advice on when to back away or when to push on, and when to speak up or shut up. Packed with ‘aha!’ and ‘oh no!’ moments, Surrounded by Idiots will help you understand and communicate with those around you, even people you currently think are beyond all comprehension.

And with a bit of luck you can also be confident that the idiot out there isn’t you!
