    After her plane crashes, a 17-year-old girl spends 11 days walking through the Peruvian jungle. Against all odds, with no food, shelter, or equipment, she gets out. A better equipped group of adult survivors of the same crash sits down and dies. What makes the difference?

    Struggling with a recession... European nations at risk of defaulting on their loans... A possible global financial crisis. It happened before, in the 1970s. The Oil Kings is the story of how oil came to dominate U.S. domestic and international affairs. Brilliantly reported and filled with astonishing details about some of the key figures of the time, this is the history of an era that we thought we knew, an era whose momentous reverberations still influence events at home and abroad today.

    I can stop myself from remembering where I was while all this was going on. And none of us had any idea. Interesting history and its probably not the history you remember...

    We are a nation battered every day by stories about horrific calamities, tragic events, frightening statistics. Inevitably our thoughts turn personal and we wonder if we have what it takes to get through the worst thrown our way. While there are plenty of books about coping with adversity, it isn't until now, with The Survivors Club, that we discover the human factors that determine survival.

    Chills down the spine. Why do some people survive and some don't? Great points on doing your very best to be a survivor. And what causes survivors to survive. A must read.

    As president of Shell Oil, John Hofmeister was known for being a straight shooter, willing to challenge his peers throughout the industry. Now, he's a man on a mission, the founder of Citizens for Affordable Energy, crisscrossing the country in a grassroots campaign to change the way we look at energy in this country.

    David says: "Intelligent and Realistic"

    Overall

    Mr. Hofmeister captures the true nature of the differences in political and energy industry speak. Excellent read on how we can repair and move into the next generation keeping our energy needs available.

    Every schoolchild is taught the great turning points in American history, such as Gettysburg, Pearl Harbor, the Kennedy assassination, and 9/11. But other, equally significant events have altered our destiny without being understood---or even widely noticed. Acclaimed conservative historian Larry Schweikart now takes an in-depth look at seven such episodes and reveals the profound ways they have shaped America.

    Russell says: "WOW!! an eye opener"
    "Why ISN"T THIS IN THE HISTORY BOOKS?"
    Overall

    Reality is only known by a few. This opens up what really happened and where it took us. Excellent read, captivating. Highly recommended for any red blooded American. Should be a required reading history book at the college level.

    Reporter Sam Kean reveals the periodic table as it’s never been seen before. Not only is it one of man's crowning scientific achievements, it's also a treasure trove of stories of passion, adventure, betrayal, and obsession. The infectious tales and astounding details in The Disappearing Spoon follow carbon, neon, silicon, and gold as they play out their parts in human history, finance, mythology, war, the arts, poison, and the lives of the (frequently) mad scientists who discovered them.

    Ethan M. says: "Excellent, if unfocused"
    "Chemistry of Chemistry"
    Overall

    Excellent learning tool and interesting history of the periodic table, the people who made the discoveries, and the people who got credit...Should be part of every college level Chem 1 course.

    Have you ever wondered how a magician saws a woman in half? Or makes coins materialize out of thin air? Or reads your mind? Magic tricks work because humans have a hardwired process of attention and awareness that is hackable. A good magician uses your mind's intrinsic properties against you in a form of mental jujitsu, to fool you every time, even when you know full well that you are being tricked.

    Roy says: "Very Informative"
    "Fascinating Read"
    Overall

    Good read, enjoyed. Slight of hand or slight of mind? Each section made we wonder if I could do the tricks. And you can....

    Why can't we solve our problems anymore? Why do threats such as the Gulf oil spill, worldwide recession, terrorism, and global warming suddenly seem unstoppable? Are there limits to the kinds of problems humans can solve? Rebecca Costa confronts - and offers a solution to - these questions in her highly anticipated and game-changing book, The Watchman's Rattle.

    Roy says: "A Macro Perspective on Complexity and Cognition"

    Overall

    Insightful and thought provoking reality check. The comparisons and behaviors in the societies and studies discussed seem futuristic yet so simple. And are here today.... And I though it was just me....
