Swamplands: Tundra Beavers, Quaking Bogs, and the Improbable World of Peat

Swamplands highlights the unappreciated struggle being waged to save peatlands by scientists, conservationists, and landowners around the world.

Note: Edward Struzik’s Swamplands is a feat of popular science drawing attention to the environmental importance of this oft disregarded ecosystem. Follow along as Struzik paddles through the bogs, moors, fens, and marshes of the planet and discover the rich biodiversity of animals, insects, birds, and plant life that call the swamp home. Adventure too far off and folklorically regarded environments to learn how the preservation of these peatlands can help prevent forest fires, curb global warming and drought conditions. For those who revere nature and desire a better understanding of swamplands, this is the audiobook for you.  – Nicholas Pouliot

The Murder of Professor Schlick: The Rise and Fall of the Vienna Circle

The Murder of Professor Schlick paints an unforgettable portrait of the Vienna Circle and its members while weaving an enthralling narrative set against the backdrop of economic catastrophe and rising extremism in Hitler’s Europe.

Note: What can the murder of the leader of one of history’s most influential philosophical movements tell us about the cultural and political shifts that would redefine the 20th century? The Murder of Professor Schlick is a fast-paced account of the Vienna Circle, the philosophers and scientists modernizing Enlightenment thought in the 1930s who put themselves in direct opposition to the rise of fascism. As their influence grew and their ideologies disseminated (at great risk to their personal safety), many were forced to emigrate while others paid the ultimate price. David Edmonds’ narrative reads like a thriller and will captivate everyone from the ardent historophile to the casual listener. – Sonia Brand-Fisher
