13 hours: the inside account of what really happened in Benghazi Cover
Mitchell Zuckoff
On the night of September 11, 2012, terrorists attacked the US State Department Special Mission Compound and a nearby CIA station called the Annex in Benghazi, Libya. A team of six American security operators fought to repel the attackers and protect the Americans stationed there. Those men--Mark "Oz" Geist, Kris "Tanto" Paronto, John "Tig" Tiegen, Jack Silva, Dave "D.B." Benton, and Tyrone "Rone" Woods--went beyond the call of duty, performing extraordinary acts of courage and heroism, to avert tragedy on a much larger scale. This is their personal account, never before told, of what happened during the thirteen hours of that now infamous attack. When the diplomatic Compound was overrun, the operators were initially told to stand down, but the team went into action regardless. Fighting to save lives while the Compound buildings were set ablaze and choking smoke reduced visibility to zero, they succeeded in retaking the Compound and then escaping to the relative safety of the nearby Annex. But more deadly attacks followed, involving grenades, mortars, and wave after wave of machine-gun fire. Stationed on the rooftops of the Annex, the team fought through the night to repel mounting enemy forces and firepower. Four Americans would not make it out alive, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. 13 HOURS sets the record straight on what happened during a night that has been shrouded in mystery and controversy. Written by author Mitchell Zuckoff, this riveting audiobook takes listeners into the action-packed story of heroes who laid their lives on the line for one another, for their countrymen, and for their country.

The edge of the sky: all you need to know about the all-there-is Cover
Roberto Trotta
Bronson Pinchot, narrator
From the big bang to black holes, from dark matter to dark energy, from the origins of the universe to its ultimate destiny, The Edge of the Sky tells the story of the most important discoveries and mysteries in modern cosmology--with a twist. The book's lexicon is limited to the thousand most common words in the English language, even excluding physics, energy, galaxy, and universe. Through the eyes of a fictional scientist (Student-People) hunting for dark matter with one of the biggest telescopes (Big-Seers) on Earth (Home-World), cosmologist Roberto Trotta explores the most important ideas about our universe (All-There-Is) in language simple enough for anyone to understand. The Edge of the Sky tells the story of the universe on a human scale, and the result is out of this world.
