As a progressive commentator on Fox News and now CNN, Sally Kohn has made a career out of bridging intractable political differences, learning how to talk civilly to people whose views she disagrees with passionately. Famously "nice", she even gave a TED Talk about what she termed emotional correctness. But these days, even Kohn has found herself wanting to breathe fire at her enemies. It was time, she decided, to look into the ugliness erupting all around us.

For nearly 10 years, Ben Rhodes saw almost everything that happened at the center of the Obama administration - first as a speechwriter, then as deputy national security advisor, and finally as a multipurpose aide and close collaborator. He started every morning in the Oval Office with the President’s Daily Brief, traveled the world with Obama, and was at the center of some of the most consequential and controversial moments of the presidency. Now, he tells the full story of his partnership with a man who also happened to be a historic president of the United States.

so much accomplished by Obama and so much reversed out of jealousness and bad political reasons. But I believe once something changes its changed for ever so Trump can cancel deals etc but change has taken place. So proud to have Obama as our president he is a true role model for all citizens and people of the world.

In the spirit of Steve Jobs and Moneyball, Elon Musk is both an illuminating and authorized look at the extraordinary life of one of Silicon Valley's most exciting, unpredictable, and ambitious entrepreneurs - a real-life Tony Stark - and a fascinating exploration of the renewal of American invention and its new makers.

Finally someone thinking of not just themselves but creating business and wealth to accomplish interplanetary existence. Also real innovation is back with Elon and I am reinvigorated to help contribute when sometimes I thought true innovation was on the decline.

great book and brings up the sad side of apple and iPhone from e waste and the horrible consequences, to iPhone team not getting recognition and used and abused especially since there are very few left. abuse towards employees and Steve jobs reaction to the Chinese factory worker s suffering a commiting suicide to the retail store memebers not getting paid or treated right. I believe an e waste charge should be adopted and paid by apple and other companies products and it goes to safe disposal and human rights on e product sold
