  • The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Great Depression and the New Deal

    In this timely new P.I . Guide, Murphy reveals the stark truth: free market failure didn't cause the Great Depression and the New Deal didn't cure it. Shattering myths and politically correct lies, he tells why World War II didn't help the economy or get us out of the Great Depression; why it took FDR to make the Depression "Great"; and why Herbert Hoover was more like Obama and less like Bush than the liberal media would have you believe.

    I expected to hear it was all the liberals faults but yikes! Nothing new here, you could just listen to talk radio and get the same information and bias.

    Junger turns his brilliant and empathetic eye to the reality of combat - the fear, the honor, and the trust among men in an extreme situation whose survival depends on their absolute commitment to one another. His on-the-ground account follows a single platoon through a 15-month tour of duty in the most dangerous outpost in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley.

  • The Disappeared: Retrieval Artist, Book 1

    Retrieval artists help the lost find their way back home, whether they like it or not. Specialized private detectives, they investigate the most unusual crimes in the galaxy. But Miles Flint isn't a retrieval artist. He's just a cop, trying to do his job.

    Joshua says: "An Intriguing New Universe"
    "Avoid this book"
    Overall

    As a science fiction reader, I try to keep my mind open to possibilities. However in this book, the author has the legal system making people give up their children as punishment for crimes. This is over the top for me and very unpleasant to read about.
