  • Muzzled: The Assault on Honest Debate

    Prize-winning Washington journalist Juan Williams was dismissed by NPR for speaking his mind and saying what many Americans feel - that he gets nervous when boarding airplanes with passengers dressed in Muslim garb. NPR banished the veteran journalist in an act of political correctness that ultimately sparked nationwide outrage. Muzzled is a hard-hitting critique of the topics and concerns we can't talk about without suffering retaliation at the hands of the political correctness police.

    Story

    Juan Williams, is obviously a man filled with some rage after his unjustified firing from NPR. He does a fine job of explaining that the true racism in our nation is mostly from the intolerant far Left, and not from the "racist Right" as the Left constantly screams.
    Juan also does a fine job of exposing how our nation has become too polarized and too "politically correct" to the point that most real debates on the issues are limited to only superficial attention by the media. We've been effectively stifled to the extreme, thus leaving the real problems of our economy and society unfixed.
    However, Juan also spends a good portion of the book pointing out the nearly infinite failures of Liberal thinking and policies, while also proudly wearing the same label. I found it particularly insightful that Juan admitted to being brought up under the belief that the fictional TV character, Archie Bunker, was the stereotypical bigoted Republican - to be protested against. Juan Williams explains that his community upbringing cemented this prejudice, and has thus dedicated his career to refuting and rejecting conservative beliefs. His book further proves that the Left are the bigger hypocrites, and pose a far greater danger to the "muzzling" of American thinking.

  • Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department

    Justice is supposed to be blind, especially to race and politics. Yet as Department of Justice (DOJ) whistleblower J. Christian Adams divulges in his shocking exposé, Injustice, justice under the Obama administration is anything but blind. Here, Adams reveals the never-before-published truth about the corrupt, racist, and politicized inner workings of the Obama Justice Department, as well as the untold story of the DOJ’s corrupt handling of the New Black Panther voter intimidation case.

    Story

    Adams opens our eyes with a scathing report on how our nation's "free elections", aren't. "Civil Rights" is clearly an oxymoron.
    I was shocked to learn how often and how easy it has been for elections to be slanted or outright stolen, right in front of us. The primary right and responsibility of all Americans has been corrupted by a liberal, race-prejudiced administration, and the DOJ has made us powerless to stop it.
    Adams should be rewarded the Nobel for bravely bringing this information to our attention. At the least, he would be deserving of it.

  • No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller

    No One Would Listen is the exclusive story of the Harry Markopolos-lead investigation into Bernie Madoff and his $65 billion Ponzi scheme. While a lot has been written about Madoff's scam, few actually know how Markopolos and his team - affectionately called "the Fox Hounds" by Markopolos himself - uncovered what Madoff was doing years before this financial disaster reached its pinnacle. Unfortunately, no one listened, until the damage of the world's largest financial fraud ever was irreversible.

    Brendan says: "Shocking, terrific"
    "Been there, done that."
    Overall

    Having also been a whistleblower in a multi-billion dollar Wall Street fraud, I believe Harry has perfectly caught the essence of the internal frustration and personal conflict of the story.

  • Day of Reckoning: How Hubris, Ideology, and Greed are Tearing America Apart

    In Day of Recokoning, the author explicates the current existential crisis in the United States. President Bush's conversion to an ideology of "democratism" after 9/11, Buchanan says, has led the country to the edge of strategic disaster while creating fierce divisions among Americans.

    James says: "A Sure Enough "Eye Opener"!"
    "Scary"
    Overall

    A frightening and pessimistic depiction of the eventual collapse of American society. Backed by a combination of facts and opinions, the conclusions reached are a scare tactic incentive for America to change its essence as free and compassionate society, in order to survive.

    Mark Twain once observed, "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on." His observation rings true: urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas (business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others) struggle to make their ideas "stick". In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds draw their power from the same six traits.

    Jeremy says: "Even Better The Second Time"
    "Made to Stick"
    Overall

    Excellent, especially for anyone working in the services or "selling intangibles" business.
