Direct, blunt, and brutally honest, Tim Grover breaks down what it takes to be unstoppable: You keep going when everyone else is giving up, you thrive under pressure, you never let your emotions make you weak. In "The Relentless 13", he details the essential traits shared by the most intense competitors and achievers in sports, business, and all walks of life.

  • Free Market Economics: A Primer

Widespread ignorance regarding free markets permeates both the Left and the Right. Not only are most talking heads ignorant of how a free market works, they don't even know what a free market is. Does a free market economy lead to depressions, monopolies, unemployment, and price gouging, as critics allege? Or is it the antidote to such problems? Moreover, doesn't a free market foster inequality? Doesn't it allow businessmen to exploit workers and rip-off consumers? Or does a free market benefit everyone?

  • The Real Lincoln

  • A New Look at Abraham Lincoln, His Agenda, and an Unnecessary War

Most Americans consider Abraham Lincoln to be the greatest president in history. His legend as the Great Emancipator has grown to mythic proportions as hundreds of books, a national holiday, and a monument in Washington, D.C., extol his heroism and martyrdom. But what if most everything you knew about Lincoln were false? What if, instead of an American hero who sought to free the slaves, Lincoln were in fact a calculating politician who waged the bloodiest war in American history in order to build an empire that rivaled Great Britain's?

Austrian economics is the most powerful explanation of why governments, no matter how well-intentioned, lack the knowledge, wisdom, and ability to direct the lives of multitudes of people better than those people can do for themselves. In this book, economist Richard Ebeling introduces you to the central ideas in Austrian economics, as well as their importance for us today.

Great introduction and/or redux of Austrian Economics. Always learn something new when I read other Austrians.
