Downpour -- Rental of the Week -- exp 09 Jan

$1.99 -- Beneath the Skin -- Jonathan Maberry/ Ray Porter --> 4.9 hrs --> horror

Quote:
Beneath the Skin: The Sam Hunter Case Files

A collection of short stories featuring Sam Hunter, from bestselling author Jonathan Maberry!

Sam Hunter is a bit of an animal. He’s a former Twin Cities cop who lost his badge because of excessive force. Abusive husbands, child molesters, and other lowlifes wound up looking like they’d been mauled by a dog … or a wolf.

Now Sam’s a low-rent PI in Philadelphia. He takes the kinds of cases no one wants. His clients are usually on the fringes of society. The kind who are prey for all manner of predators—human and otherwise.

When Sam takes on a client they become part of his “pack,” and no one protects their own better than a werewolf. At least, the kind of werewolf like Sam, who comes from a long, long line of Benandanti—also known as “the hounds of God.”

Stories in this collection include: “Like Part of the Family,” “Toby’s Closet,” “Crazy Town,” “We All Make Sacrifices,” and “A House in Need of Children.”

Downpour -- Deal of the Week -- exp 09 Jan

$3.95 -- Mars -- Leonard David/ Andrew Reilly --> 3.5 hrs --> science

Quote:
Mars: Our Future on the Red Planet

An inspiring exploration of the establishment of humans on Mars—tying into the National Geographic television documentary series Mars

The next frontier in space exploration is Mars, the Red Planet—and human habitation of Mars isn’t much farther off. In October 2015, NASA declared Mars “an achievable goal”; that same season, Ridley Scott and Matt Damon’s The Martian drew crowds into theaters, grossing over $200 million.

Now the National Geographic Channel fast forwards years ahead with Mars, a six-part series documenting and dramatizing the next twenty-five years as humans land on and learn to live on Mars. Following on the visionary success of Buzz Aldrin’s Mission to Mars and the visual glory of Marc Kaufman’s Mars Up Close, this companion book to the Nat Geo series shows the science behind the mission and the challenges awaiting those brave individuals.

The book combines science, technology, and storytelling, offering what only National Geographic can create. Clear scientific explanations make the Mars experience real and provide amazing visuals to savor and return to again and again.

Well, Downpour's Deal of the Week is non-fiction.

Ya know, if I were monkey-Emperor of the Known Audiobook Universe, the entire self-help genre would be wiped out of existence

Real question: do you make any distinction between "self-help" and "self-development"? It seems like "self-help" leans toward psychology and "self-development" leans toward things that will create business success. Of course, there would be a lot of overlap between the two (Illus.--if Charles Manson were released, he'd probably have trouble getting a job. ha).

Nope - I lump self-help, self-development, leadership, business management, career skills, motivational, inspirational, and anything else to improve one's lot in life all in the self-help category.

I don't discount its value to others, but to me, it's all worthless.

Gotcha. Thanks. I'll have a better idea now of whether or not I should look at, or pass over an item labelled "self-development."

I tend to use the genre Audible assigns it. Sometimes I use the Kindle designation if I find Audible to be too vague. If Audible says "self-dev", then I'll try to use that. If they say "career skills", then I'll use that. Sometimes I mess up and use an overly broad genre label, instead of a more specific one. Also, I try to use one word whenever possible.

But then again, I could just say "yuck" and chances are, you'll like it
