Although this group claimed their taking over was only temporary, America became the Republic of Gilead.

    Born to a black mother and a white father in 1984, Noah and his family navigated many unusual challenges, on top of the usual hardships faced by black families in that time and place. Noah's parents, an African woman and a Swiss man, had an unusual relationship. They never married, and Noah isn't sure to what degree they were even romantically involved. (They were, at the very least, good friends). His mother was keen to have a child, and his father was to be a glorified sperm donor.

    In order to bring its origin to light, Rebecca Skloot weaves together several narrative threads. One is primarily focused on Henrietta Lacks, the woman who, without her knowledge, became central to 20th century biomedical research. Another is the birth of modern biomedical research itself, and its roots in the American eugenics movement. Finally, there is the impact of this research, both of the Lacks Family and on society at large. Skloot divides the book into 3 parts: Life, Death, and Immortality.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson, a former star, amateur wrestler at Harvard who went on to become an award-winning astrophysicist, might be the most well-known science communicator in the United States since the late Carl Sagan. Tyson, who has served as the director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York City since 1996, had published a dozen books prior to Astrophysics for People in a Hurry; all of them have been aimed at a popular audience. In spite of that, Astrophysics for People in a Hurry is probably his most accessible and scaled-down work to date.

    Musk was born in South Africa. His mother Maye, was a model, and his father Errol, was an electrical engineer. Musk had a difficult childhood, and was often bullied in school. His parents divorced when he was nine and he and his brother Kimbal, went to live with their father. Errol was a very unpleasant man, and treated the boys coldly and perhaps abusively. The trauma of his childhood may have affected Musk's need for validation, his obsessive work ethic, and his difficulty in communicating with others later in life.
