In this eagerly anticipated memoir, Palin paints an intimate portrait of growing up in the wilds of Alaska; meeting her lifelong love; her decision to enter politics; the importance of faith and family; and the unique joys and trials of life as a high-profile working mother. She also opens up for the first time about the 2008 presidential race, providing a rare, mom's-eye view of high-stakes national politics - from patriots dedicated to "Country First" to slick politicos bent on winning at any cost.

In the tradition of old-fashioned limericks, the late Pulitzer Prize-winning author, John Patrick penned this delightful collection of lyrical poetry that is guaranteed to stretch even the wildest of imaginations. More than a compilation of naughty songs, Dirty Ditties is a hilarious look at such subjects as sin, virtue, greed, divorce, fame, hope, love, maturity, food, weight and royalty.

The Story of Philosophy is a timeless overview of Western thought. Will Durant's goal was to humanize knowledge by centering the story around certain dominant personalities. He brilliantly illustrates how philosophy has evolved over time, explaining the historical, cultural, and political context of each movement and each great thinker. The best-selling philosophy book of the past century, this masterpiece of eloquent, clear prose continues to fascinate.

I enjoyed this book. Not because I don't like Barack Obama, but because I do. This book paints a solid picture of the opposition. This is my 4th Obama book. Two of his own and one by David Mendell. To say the least the Obama Nation will provide you with an understanding of the motivations and feelings of the anti-crowd. The book is filled with misinterpretations and implausible suggestions. Largely, this book will tell you that many things about Barack Obama are some how out of line with mainstream America. Which mainstream America though? This is the America of white blibber blabber, right wing intolerance. I enjoyed the book, because I find it necessary to understand ignorance and intolerance in the political arena. Wup Wup Wup
