From the guitarist of the pioneering band Sleater-Kinney, a candid, funny, and deeply personal look at making a life - and finding yourself - in music. Before Carrie Brownstein became a music icon, she was a young girl growing up in the Pacific Northwest just as it was becoming the setting for one the most important movements in rock history. Seeking a sense of home and identity, she would discover both while moving from spectator to creator in experiencing the power and mystery of a live performance. With Sleater-Kinney, Brownstein and her bandmates rose to prominence in the burgeoning underground feminist punk-rock movement that would define music and pop culture in the 1990s. They would be cited as ´´America´s best rock band´´ by legendary music critic Greil Marcus for their defiant, exuberant brand of punk that resisted labels and limitations and redefined notions of gender in rock. Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl is an intimate and revealing narrative of her escape from a turbulent family life into a world where music was the means toward self-invention, community, and rescue. Along the way Brownstein chronicles the excitement and contradictions within the era´s flourishing and fiercely independent music subculture, including experiences that sowed the seeds for the observational satire of the popular television series Portlandia years later. With deft, lucid prose Brownstein proves herself as formidable on the page as on the stage. Accessibly raw, honest, and heartfelt, this audiobook captures the experience of being a young woman, a born performer, and an outsider and ultimately finding one´s true calling through hard work, courage, and the intoxicating power of rock and roll. 1.

Embrace your inner beta and get ahead - on your own terms. What does success look like? Five a.m. conference calls and late nights in the office? Winning every argument in the office and always getting your own way? What does a successful woman look like? The shoulder-pad wearing alpha? The dogmatist who rules with an iron fist? The reality is far more nuanced. Yet women are still reduced to alpha boss or the beta secretary or assistant, but when 47 percent of the workforce are reduced to two unhelpful stereotypes, how can you embrace your inner beta and be a success on your own terms? It´s an important question, because the world is changing fast. Successful companies need people who can lead with emotional intelligence, be flexible to new ideas and adapt their plans when required, leaving their egos at the door. The beta woman´s time is now. Beta celebrates the collaborators, the pragmatists, and the people who believe that being nice works and getting your own way isn´t always the most important thing. It explores the unsung workforce of beta women who are being great bosses and great leaders and are still living their own lives: having relationships, making time for friends, having families. Fully researched and rich with interviews, anecdotes and case studies, Beta will be a smart and entertaining listen that really explores the role of women in the workplace today. 1.
