News and News Sources:A Critical Introduction Paul Manning
The Ragamuffin Gospel:Good News for the Bedraggled, Beat-Up, and Burnt Out Brennan Manning
No family in the history of American sports has ascended to the storybook level of greatness and royal succession quite like the Mannings. Although the façade has occasionally cracked-murmurs of locker-room scandal, flashes of fraternal jealousy - this talented trio of quarterbacks is enshrined in American culture, epitomizing once-proud but dying nostrums of Southern Christian manhood. With remarkable nuance, ´´outstanding biographer´´ (Dallas Morning News) Mark Ribowsky traces their roots from red-clay Mississippi. From patriarch Archie´s heyday at Ole Miss, with its complicated history, to the rise of his Super Bowl champion sons Peyton and Eli, a complex new cultural reality emerges. Drawing on dozens of new interviews, Ribowsky tells us that the path to football immortality has not always been smooth, nor completely glorious. The result is a distinctly American saga of a flawed lineage that forever changed the game. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Barry Abrams.

MoWith Manning, the Super Bowl MVP, as its focal point, New York Daily News Giants beat writer Ralph Vacchiano’s Eli Manning: The Making of a Quarterback is a fascinating insider’s look at the National Football League, how stars are made and crushed, and how fortunes are won and lost on the performance of one man: the quarterback. From the bold draft day trade that brought Manning to New York, through his dramatic ups and downs on and off the field, his first training camp to his last-minute heroics in Super Bowl XLII, Vacchiano takes a candid and revealing look at the people and events that made Manning’s and his 2007 Giants’ success one of the greatest stories in modern sports history. Complete with exclusive interviews with NFL stars, coaches, and executives and a foreword by former Giants general manager Ernie Accorsi, Vacchiano uses his unfettered access to the world champion Giants to present a true, behind-the scenes look at the quarterback and team that defied all of the experts and oddsmakers to pull off one of the most phenomenal upsets in pro football history. 1.

Drew Manning, a natural fitness junkie and devoted personal trainer, had never been overweight in his life. He never craved junk food or missed an opportunity to work out. Yet despite his obsession with fitness, he failed to help his clients reach their goals. Something had to give. Manning needed to understand what it was like to be on the other side; he had to spend a few months in his clients´ shoes - or rather, size. For six months, Manning radically let himself go. He stopped exercising and ate nothing but the typical American diet of fast and processed foods. Not surprisingly, he started to gain weight. Manning made national news when he posted a blog revealing that he had gained more than 60 pounds. (He ended up gaining 75.) In only half a year, the out-of-shape trainer-turned-blogger had gained more than he ever expected - and not just in pounds. Manning devoted the next six months to losing the weight as quickly as he had gained it. The lessons he learned were priceless, as he had now experienced both sides of the weight-loss battle. What started as a physical challenge became an emotional and mental wake-up call. In Fit2Fat2Fit, Manning reveals the practical takeaways and profound insights of his yearlong journey. With startlingly honest stories, concrete easy-to-implement strategies, recipes, exercises, workout routines, meal plans, and much more, listeners will be fully equipped to achieve any weight-loss goal.

This program includes an introduction read by the author. David E. McCraw recounts his experiences as the top newsroom lawyer for The New York Times during the most turbulent era for journalism in generations. In October 2016, when Donald Trump´s lawyer demanded that The New York Times retract an article focused on two women who accused Trump of touching them inappropriately, David McCraw´s scathing letter of refusal went viral, and he became a hero of press freedom everywhere. But as you´ll see in Truth in Our Times, for the top newsroom lawyer at the paper of record, it was just another day at the office. McCraw has worked at the Times since 2002, leading the paper´s fight for freedom of information, defending it against libel suits, and providing legal counsel to the reporters breaking the biggest stories of the year. In short: If you´ve read a controversial story in the paper since the Bush administration, it went across his desk first. From Chelsea Manning´s leaks to Trump´s tax returns, McCraw is at the center of the paper´s decisions about what news is fit to print. In Truth in Our Times, McCraw recounts the hard legal decisions behind the most impactful stories of the last decade with candor and style. The audiobook is simultaneously a rare peek behind the curtain of the celebrated organization, a love letter to freedom of the press, and a decisive rebuttal of Trump´s fake-news slur through a series of hard cases. It is an absolute must-have for any dedicated fan of The New York Times. ´´[Truth in Our Times] is spirited and hopeful and even, at times, lighthearted. It is, in a way, a love letter to the First Amendment.´´ (The New York Times Book Review) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephen Graybill, David E. McCraw - introduction.
