Are we in possession of messages of extraterrestrial origin? If so, what do they mean? What do these messages from the edge of eternity portend for the future? What has the science of cryptology revealed about these ancient texts? Is our universe itself a "digital message"? Do these messages explain the interval between the miracle of our origin and the mystery of our destiny? Listen to the implications of our finite universe and the shocking discoveries of quantum physics at the very boundaries of reality and learn their significance to our origin and personal destinies!

What is "the big lie" of the Democratic Party? That conservatives - and President Donald Trump in particular - are fascists. Nazis, even. In a typical comment, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow says the Trump era is reminiscent of "what it was like when Hitler first became chancellor." But in fact, this audacious lie is a complete inversion of the truth. Yes, there is a fascist threat in America - but that threat is from the Left and the Democratic Party.

D'Souza does a masterful job exposing the strategic Leftist lie that has falsly turned Fascism into a right wing ideology.
This book should be required reading for all HS students and college students.

Five hundred years after Luther's now famous 95 Theses appeared, Eric Metaxas, acclaimed biographer of the best-selling Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy and Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery, paints a startling portrait of the wild figure whose adamantine faith cracked the edifice of Western Christendom and dragged medieval Europe into the future.

Metaxas struck gold again with this book.
From the miticulous research, to the sprinkles of humor, Metaxas masterfully presents this inflection point in human history known as Marten Luther.

I liked it so much, I bought the paper book just so I could have the author sign it at a book signimg.

Since 2014, international monetary agencies have been issuing warnings to a small group of finance ministers, banks, and private equity funds: The US government's cowardly choices not to prosecute J.P. Morgan and its ilk and to bloat the economy with a $4 trillion injection of easy credit are driving us headlong toward a cliff. As Rickards shows in this frightening, meticulously researched book, governments around the world have no compunction about conspiring against their citizens.

We are living in a rare time and to understand it, we need to overcome our brain's design for linear thinking. We live in exponential, mathematically complex times.
Rickards outdoes himself with his technical explainitions of complexity theory interspersed with deeply relevant stories from history and his own multi hued experience - alll to bring us to the denouement that is our era itself.
To get to the other side with your estate still in existance, not to mention in tact, read this book.

I have been in the help desk, I have been in IT management, I have been in the upper echelons of management and business ownership.
The ideas put forth in this book are groundbreaking for today's economy and will be the groundwork for the highly agile businesses of the 21st Century.
If you want to make progress in your Enterprise and you are getting blowback from your managers, give them this book.

This novel of page-turning action and adventure poses the question, "If a society had no knowledge of Christianity, and then a Bible were discovered, what would happen?" Four hundred years after a deadly virus and nuclear war destroyed the modern world, a new and noble civilization emerges. In this kingdom, called Chiveis, snow-capped mountains provide protection, and fields and livestock provide food. The people live medieval-style lives, with almost no knowledge of the "ancient" world.
