    A groundbreaking book about the modern presidency, The Clinton Tapes invites readers into private dialogue with a gifted, tormented, resilient President of the United States. Here is what President Clinton thought and felt but could not say in public. This book rests upon a secret project, initiated by Clinton, to preserve for future historians an unfiltered record of presidential experience.

    I think the author (Taylor Branch) did a wonderful job capturing many behind the scenes aspects of the Clinton years in the White House, both personally and professionally. Also, I give credit to the President for having the guts to trust Mr. Branch with such intimate details of his private life.
    Additionally, the author deserves many cudos for his strong journalistic compass, balanced treatment of the material, and laudable ethical example for others who have close access to Presidents...not to breach their sacred trusts by writing kiss and tell stories...attempting to get the last word on some issue or seeking their 15 minutes of fame and fortune!

  • The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine

    Who understood the risk inherent in the assumption of ever-rising real-estate prices, a risk compounded daily by the creation of those arcane, artificial securities loosely based on piles of doubtful mortgages? Michael Lewis turns the inquiry on its head to create a fresh, character-driven narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor, a fitting sequel to his number-one best-selling Liar’s Poker.

    Overall

    This book is a brilliant and unbiased account of the Wall street Meltdown, and the seeds of destruction (planted many years previous) that provided the basis for the ensuing carnage. Rarely do I have the pleasure of listening to a book this insightful!! The research, writing, and unbiased reporting in this book should make the author a Pulitzer Prize candidate!!!

    The authors devoted five decades to the study of world history and philosophy, culminating in the masterful 11-volume Story of Civilization. In this compact summation of their work, Will and Ariel Durant share the vital and profound lessons of our collective past. Their perspective, gained after a lifetime of thinking and writing about the history of humankind, is an invaluable resource for us today.

    The most insightful vision of Philosophy and History I have ever encountered. Durant's work is absolute genius!!
