    Mo Rocca has always loved obituaries - reading about the remarkable lives of world leaders, captains of industry, innovators, and artists. But not every notable life has gotten the send-off it deserves. With Mobituaries - the book companion to the CBS podcast of the same name - the journalist, humorist, and history buff is righting that wrong, profiling the people who have long fascinated him - from the 20th century’s greatest entertainer…to sitcom characters gone all too soon…to a shamefully forgotten Founding Father.

    An aging judge about to step down. Aggressive prosecutors friendly with the judge. A disgraced president. A nation that had already made up its mind. The Watergate trials were a legal mess-and now, with the discovery of new documents that reveal shocking misconduct by prosecutors and judges alike, former Nixon staffer Geoff Shepard has a convincing case that the wrongdoing of these history-making trials was actually a bigger scandal than the Watergate scandal itself.

    We all want the same things. We want to live a life of purpose and meaning. We want to leave a legacy for our children and grandchildren. We want to leave the world a better place.

    In Alexander the Great, Anthony Everitt judges Alexander’s life against the criteria of his own age and considers all his contradictions. We meet the Macedonian prince who was naturally inquisitive and fascinated by science and exploration, as well as the man who enjoyed the arts and used the poet Homer’s great epic, the Iliad, as a bible. As his empire grew, Alexander exhibited respect for the traditions of his new subjects and careful judgment in administering rule over his vast territory. But his career also had a dark side.

Like no other portrait of its famous subject, Forty Ways to Look at Winston Churchill is a dazzling display of facts more improbable than fiction, and an investigation of the contradictions and complexities that haunt biography.

    The broadcast that George VI made to the British nation on the outbreak of war in September 1939 - which formed the climax of the multi-Oscar-winning film The King’s Speech - was the product of years of hard work with Lionel Logue, his iconoclastic, Australian-born speech therapist. Yet the relationship between the two men did not end there. Far from it: In the years that followed, Logue was to play an even more important role at the monarch’s side.
