Win Charles Multi Author and Podcaster with Cerebral Palsy on a mission to help others with disabilities
Born with Cerebral Palsy, Win Charles has defied the odds by becoming an author. Her memoir I, Win is an amazing story of how she remembers her life through the years of having a condition called “CP”. Competing in the Kona Iron Man Triathlon, she truly is an inspiration to many. Today she is planning on touring the country and speaking to schools and institutions to raise awareness about cerebral palsy. She is also an advocate of veterans across the world.
After losing her mom Win decided to write “I, Win”, her own biography. It was an exciting process but she was not as happy with the end result as she could have been because the process was rushed. She knew she wanted to do things differently but she didn’t listen to her intuition and speak up so the book would be more polished and professional.
After a horrible experience in the hospital that caused her spine to go dead, Win was told she had to go through excruciating physical therapy and psychological treatment. She did the physical therapy but said “no thank you” to seeing a psychologist. Instead, she channeled her anger into art and then into a book which has opened up all new avenues in her life.
Win is tenacious. If she wants to get something she doesn’t stop until she has figured it out how to get it. She is resilient and persistent. If you want to get what you want, you have to figure it out!
The book: I, Win - At age 24 I decided to tell my story. Writing this autobiography gave me the opportunity to pay tribute to my family members who are passionate about life and have instilled this passion in me.
My parents' extraordinary support, encouragement, and pure love were my foundation as I navigated life, overcame obstacles, and achieved successes as a young woman

Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story - Bono
Bono—artist, activist, and the lead singer of Irish rock band U2—has written a memoir: honest and irreverent, intimate and profound, Surrender is the story of the remarkable life he’s lived, the challenges he’s faced, and the friends and family who have shaped and sustained him.
Narrated by the author, Surrender is an intimate, immersive listening experience, telling stories from Bono’s early days in Dublin, to joining a band and playing sold out stadiums around the world with U2, plus his more than 20 years of activism.
Throughout a remarkable life, music has always been a constant for Bono and in the audiobook, his distinctive voice is interwoven with a very personal soundtrack adding atmosphere and texture to each and every scene. From moments of classic U2 hits to snippets by The Clash, Patti Smith, Verdi, Johnny Cash and Mozart, Surrender also exclusively features clips of newly recorded re imagined versions of U2 songs including ‘Sunday Bloody Sunday’, ‘With Or Without You’, ‘One’, ‘Beautiful Day’ and more, glimpsed for the first time on Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story.
