Loved it! Brought back memories of my over 40 years as a nurse. If we could only go back to the early 70s, when we could REALLY CARE for patients, NOT CLIENTS!

When NASCAR star Dale Earnhardt, Jr., retired from professional stock car racing in 2017, he walked away from his career as a healthy man. But for years, he had worried that the worsening effects of multiple racing-related concussions would end not only his time on the track but his ability to live a full and happy life. Torn between a race-at-all-costs culture and the fear that something was terribly wrong, Earnhardt tried to pretend everything was fine, but the private notes about his escalating symptoms that he kept on his phone reveal a vicious cycle.

Great information for anyone who has suffered a head injury. Concussions, no matter how insignificant, can have severe and lasting effects on anyone. Long term, dementia and Alzheimer's disease can be the end result. Be cognizant of this. Get treatment.

In Everything Trump Touches Dies, political campaign strategist and commentator Rick Wilson brings his darkly funny humor and biting analysis to the absurdity of American politics in the age of Trump. Wilson mercilessly exposes the damage Trump has done to the country, to the Republican Party he served for decades, and to the conservative movement that has abandoned its principles for the worst president in American history. No left-winger, Wilson is a lifelong conservative who delivers his withering critique of Trump from the right.

How did you last as long as you did! I see the trump White House much like I would a troll house. I think of trump followers as lemmings. Blindly following their leader off the cliffs of decency. Great job!

The election of Donald Trump in 2016, like most of his campaign, came as a shock to many Americans. How could a man so lacking in capacity, so void of any intellectual heft, become the president of the United States? How could a man with no detectable personal qualities outside of resentment and the will to dominate appeal to millions of Americans, enough so that he was able to win the highest office in the land? With this book, journalist Amanda Marcotte will outline how Trump was the inevitable result of American conservatism’s degradation into an ideology of blind resentment.

such truth from a preemptive author! A scary look at the first 2 years of an illigitament presidency. The manipulation of the American public to believe a pathologic, mysonigic , paranoid, racist person who has unfortunately became the 45th president of the United States. and the people who have attempted to maintain the persona of legitimacy.

In KL, Wachsmann fills this glaring gap in our understanding. He not only synthesizes a new generation of scholarly work, much of it untranslated and unknown outside of Germany, but also presents startling revelations, based on many years of archival research, about the functioning and scope of the camp system.

Very concise and complex. At times difficult to listen to, but extremely interesting. As we know, history has a tendency of repeating itself, but this should never happen again.

Our age is obsessed by the idea of conspiracy. We see it everywhere---from Pearl Harbor to 9/11, from the assassination of Kennedy to the death of Diana. In this age of terrorism we live in, the role of conspiracy is a serious one---one that can fuel radical or fringe elements to violence. For award-winning journalist David Aaronovitch, there came a time when he started to see a pattern among these inflammatory theories.
