With authoritative reporting honed through eight presidencies from Nixon to Obama, author Bob Woodward reveals in unprecedented detail the harrowing life inside President Donald Trump’s White House and precisely how he makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies. Woodward draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources, meeting notes, personal diaries, files, and documents. The focus is on the explosive debates and the decision-making in the Oval Office, the Situation Room, Air Force One, and the White House residence.

The passion of my mission had its roots in my youth when I rejected the dogma and doctrine of organized religion. I drifited in and out of several Christian denominations, always seeking answers to questions which religious people could not answer to my satisfaction. My joy and enthusiasm for life and learning have been sharply curtailed by the sobering reality that we live in a troubled world from which I cannot escape. I frequently think of the many children who go to sleep hungry every night, many of them wet and cold.

Not usually a fan of self help books, but this one found me at an appropriate time. The narrator, Dave Bosco, did and excellent job of drawing me in and keeping me focused. Well worth my time.

It is the smallest of anomalies. A tiny error lurking in Bob Ludlow’s DNA that could have untold consequences for civilization. Dr. Barry Gifford hopes that understanding this genetic error could provide revolutionary advances for humanity. Bob believes in Barry and his vision for the future. The two men team up to solve the mystery of Bob’s genetics and to develop a drug based on this inborn error. Unfortunately, in the cutthroat world of medical research, altruism doesn’t always take precedence over money or ego. Dr. Dexter Brunswick, a bitter man with a tough past, is strangely jealous of Barry’s accomplishments. Yet he needs Barry’s research to unlock the treasures hidden in Bob’s genetic code. Unlike Barry’s noble intentions, Brunswick’s plans are more sinister.

What you are about to hear is the true, untold story of the god the world has come to know as Superman. There are many things that must be cleared regarding this "man", much lore and superstition that must be debunked if we ever hope to grasp his true identity and nature. The first fable that must be put to bed is the notion that Superman is an alien from Krypton, a fiction clearly made up to protect his actual identity. You see his story is real, and that is why it has been told, this is why you think you know it.

With its acid edge and wicked humor, JL Davis (writing as Jeff Davis) delivers a rapid fire depiction of bureaucracy gone wild that digs underneath the fingernails of the typical blue collar worker, satirizing both modern day relationships and business life. Specifically, if we can't stand our jobs and families, live for the day to escape!

Kenny, a former sitcom star, is a veteran comedian whose career nosedives after a damaging video goes viral. In these 18 stories we also meet: a distraught husband who experiences heartbreak and salvation after a texting teenager changes his life; a man who returns to his hometown to find his first love stacking jars in Costco; a western sheriff who confronts a pedophile - and his own past; and a successful attorney who abandons his career to play the iPad guitar.
