Beacon Audiobooks releases "The Life of Johnny Depp" by Charles River Editors.

Beacon Audiobooks has just released an incredible new audiobook "American Legends: The Life Of Johnny Depp", written by Charles River Editors and narrated by Morley Shulman. Throughout the history of Hollywood, perhaps no actor has a reputation as unique as Johnny Depp.

Depp began his career in a very traditional manner by being a teen heartthrob on shows like 21 Jump Street, but as he once admitted, "As a teenager I was so insecure.

I was the type of guy that never fitted in because he never dared to choose. I was convinced I had absolutely no talent at all. For nothing. And that thought took away all my ambition too." However, that ambition clearly resurfaced over the last 25 years, because Depp has since taken on some of the most unique and eccentric roles in the industry, explaining, "I like the challenge of trying different things and wondering whether it's going to work or whether I'm going to fall flat on my face."

In addition to being renowned for portrayals of people like John Dillinger and Hunter S. Thompson, Depp has played some of the most memorable fictional characters of the last 30 years, including Edward Scissorhands, Captain Jack Sparrow, and Willy Wonka, making his larger-than-life roles pop culture fixtures and helping the movies bank billions of dollars. Of course his success hasn't been limited to the box office, as he has also won countless awards and been nominated three times for the Oscar for Best Actor.

It's no wonder Depp was recently named the highest paid actor in the world. Although Depp has played some of Hollywood's most famous characters, he has also cultivated one of the town's most alluring and mysterious reputations. Depp has matured from being a teen idol to People's Sexiest Man of the Year on multiple occasions, but even as he has gained millions of fans across the globe, he has maintained enough distance from the spotlight to leave people wondering what he's truly like, and some of the glimpses suggest he can be just as eccentric as his characters. Perhaps not surprisingly, he has approached it with some of his trademark humor, quipping, "I pretty much try to stay in a constant state of confusion just because of the expression it leaves on my face."

"American Legends: The Life of Johnny Depp" examines the life and career of one of America's most famous living actors. Beacon Audiobooks has just released "The Life of Johnny Depp" in audiobook format and it is now available for download worldwide on digital download sites like iTunes, Amazon and Audible.com.

Narrated by Morley Shulman and written by Charles Rivers' Editors, this book is a must have for all boxing enthusiasts. Download your copy today!

Beacon Audiobooks Releases American Legends:The Life Of Judy Garland By Charles River Editors

Beacon Audiobooks has just released American Legends:The Life of Judy Garland, written by Charles River Editors and narrated by Patricia Hoeksema.

"I was born at the age of twelve on a Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer lot." – Judy Garland A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history’s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors’ American Legends series, readers can get caught up to speed on the lives of America’s most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. In many ways, Judy Garland’s rise to fame seems almost predestined.

Not only was she a national sensation at a young age, but her parents and sisters were all vaudeville entertainers. On top of that, Garland’s parents owned and operated a movie theater, making it all the easier to draw the conclusion that singing and acting were simply professions which she was born into by virtue of her pedigree. Judy’s early childhood quickly demonstrated that she had a gifted voice that developed well beyond its years and seemingly did not require any formal training in order to achieve success; her first performance before a public audience came when she was still a toddler, and she would continue to act up until her death, never pausing for more than a few months at a time. That Garland was able to secure starring roles almost immediately after signing a contract with MGM in 1935 only corroborates the belief that Garland was practically born with the ability to succeed in show business and the motion picture industry.

Of course, Garland might be known today based more on her demise than anything else, and there’s no denying that one of the most fascinating (and tragic) aspects of her life story is the manner in which her downward spiral occurred with the same rapid progression as her meteoric ascent. Garland died in 1969 at the age of 47, but she had lost control over her life years earlier and was actually fortunate to live as long as she did. As early as 1950, when she was still yet to turn 30 years old and remained a box office attraction, Garland’s contract was terminated by MGM and she would never again find consistent employment as a movie star. At an age in which most actresses were in the prime of their careers, Garland’s career was nearly finished.

The contrast between Garland’s innocent, universally adored performances in films such as The Wizard of Oz (1939) and The Pirate (1948) could not be more dissimilar to the image of the wasted, drug-addled Garland who passed away as a result of a drug overdose before the age of 50. The question therefore remains: how did Garland go from a position of immense wealth and acclaim to the poverty-ridden individual who was too mentally unstable to act in movies and ultimately died prematurely? American Legends: The Life of Judy Garland profiles the life and career of one of America’s most famous actresses.

You will learn about Judy Garland like you never have before, in no time at all. Beacon Audiobooks has just released American Legends:The Life of Judy Garland in audiobook format and it is now available for download worldwide on digital download sites like iTunes, Amazon and Audible.com.

Narrated by Patricia Hoeksema and written by Charles Rivers' Editors, this book is a must have for all Judy Garland fans. . Download your copy today!

Beacon Audiobooks Releases "The Life Of Mike Tyson" by Charles River Editors

Beacon Audiobooks has just released an incredible new audiobook "The Life Of Mike Tyson", written by Charles River Editors and narrated by Don Hoeksema. "Everybody in boxing probably makes out well except for the fighter."


(Mike Tyson) A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history's most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees?

In Charles River Editors' American Legends series, listeners can get caught up to speed on the lives of America's most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. "Iron" Mike Tyson was one of the most feared opponents to ever step into a boxing ring.

With unbelievable power that floored or stopped all but two of his first 28 professional opponents, Tyson began an unprecedented ascent to the top of the boxing world, becoming the youngest champion in history with a second-round TKO over Trevor Berbick, the last man to box and defeat Muhammad Ali. That victory, in November 1986, prompted one British sports reporter to write, "The noble and manly art of boxing can at least cease worrying about its immediate future, now it has discovered a heavyweight champion fit to stand alongside Dempsey, Tunney, Louis, Marciano, and Ali."

Tyson became one of the biggest names in sports during the 1980s and could literally do no wrong in the ring, compiling a 37-0 record with 33 KO/TKOs. On top of that, he was the face of the iconic Nintendo game Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!, a favorite among every video gamer in Generations X and Y. It was a stunning rise for a kid who grew up poor with no father in rough neighborhoods of New York City. Taunted for his now instantly recognizable high voice and lisp, Tyson was quick to fight and a petty criminal who became orphaned upon his mother's death when he was 16.

Beacon Audiobooks has just released "The Life Of Mike Tyson" in audiobook format and it is now available for download worldwide on digital download sites like iTunes, Amazon and Audible.com.

Narrated by Don Hoeksema and written by Charles Rivers' Editors, this book is a must have for all boxing enthusiasts. Download your copy today!
