In The Low-Carb Fraud, longtime leader in the nutritional science field T. Colin Campbell outlines where and how the low-carb proponents get it wrong: Where the belief came from that carbohydrates are bad and why it persists despite all the evidence to the contrary. The foods we misleadingly refer to as "carbs" aren't all created equal, and treating them that way has major consequences for our nutritional well-being.

"Mostly war stories, ploddingly told"
When Barack Obama ran on a platform of "hope and change" four years ago, he promised to unite the country. But as Kate Obenshain reveals in Divider-in-Chief, Obama has done exactly the opposite.

As a result, America has become a nation of even greater polarization and disillusionment.
