    In an era of ballooning corporate campaign expenditures, unleashed by the Supreme Court in Citizens United, trust in our government is at an all time low. More than ever before, Americans believe that money buys results in Congress - and that our Republic has been lost.Using examples that resonate as powerfully on the Right as on the Left, Republic, Lost not only makes clear how the economy of influence defeats the will of the people, but offers cogent strategies to correct our course....

    Story

    Simple and precise unwinding of the complete breakdown of our election, congressional, lobbying and ethical systems and how broke they are. Sadly the constitutional convention is all that is left to correct our broken system.

    When the Navy sends their elite, they send the SEALs. When the SEALs send their elite, they send SEAL Team Six—a secret unit tasked with counterterrorism, hostage rescue, and counterinsurgency. In this dramatic, behind-the-scenes chronicle, Howard Wasdin takes listeners deep inside the world of Navy SEALs and Special Forces snipers, beginning with the grueling selection process of Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL - the toughest and longest military training in the world.

    Allan says: "unique among these books"

    Did you know you can beat stress, lift your mood, fight memory loss, sharpen your intellect, and function better than ever simply by elevating your heart rate and breaking a sweat? The evidence is incontrovertible: Aerobic exercise physically remodels our brains for peak performance.

    Kathleen says: "Spark"
    "exercise feels good but i had no idea...."
    Overall

    The book has a nice fact based no to techy or sciency approach...the examples are key and the actionable info in this is huge...not to pushy and a real good start to 'getting me hooked' as the author indicates...much success can't wait for the forthcoming titles, 'Burn: Now that your heart rate is up...', and many more...
