Summary : During the height of the crack epidemic that decimated the streets of D.C., Ruben Castaneda covered the crime beat for the Washington Post. The first in his family to graduate from college, he had landed a job at one of the country's premier newspapers. But his apparent success masked a devastating secret: he was a crack addict. Even as he covered the drug-fueled violence that was destroying the city, he was prowling S Street, a 24/7 open-air crack market, during his off hours, looking for his next fix. Castaneda's remarkable book, S Street Rising, is more than a memoir; it's a portrait of a city in crisis. It's the adrenalin-infused story of the street where Castaneda quickly became a regular, and where a fledgling church led by a charismatic and streetwise pastorwas protected by the local drug kingpin, a dangerous man who followed an old-school code of honor. It's the story of Castaneda's friendship with an exceptional police homicide commander whose career was derailed when he ran afoul of Mayor Marion Barry and his political cronies. And it's a study of the city itself as it tried to rise above the bloody crack epidemic and the corrosive politics of the Barry era. S Street Rising is The Wire meets the Oscar-winning movie Crash. And it's all true.

Summary : John Kendrick is down on his luck, struggling to make ends meet. He finds himself in the right place at the right time, and suddenly, everything seems to go his way. He is living a life others only dream about. He has the perfect wife, perfect job, and perfect home. He has everything he ever hoped to have. Is it the perfect life, or it is just the calm before the storm? If it seems too good to be true, it usually is, and he discovers he has to make a choice. It's a lesson we all face at one time or another. What's easy isn't always right, and sometimes, what's right can be dangerous.

Summary : NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • When did America give up on fairness? The author of Fantasyland tells the epic history of how America decided that big business gets whatever it wants, only the rich get richer, and nothing should ever change—and charts a way back to the future. “The one book everyone must read as we figure out how to rebuild our country.”—Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs and Leonardo da Vinci During the twentieth century, America managed to make its economic and social systems both more and more fair and more and more prosperous. A huge, secure, and contented middle class emerged. All boats rose together. But then the New Deal gave way to the Raw Deal. Beginning in the early 1970s, by means of a long war conceived of and executed by a confederacy of big business CEOs, the superrich, and right-wing zealots, the rules and norms that made the American middle class possible were undermined and dismantled. The clock was turned back on a century of economic progress, making greed good, workers powerless, and the market all-powerful while weaponizing nostalgia, lifting up an oligarchy that served only its own interests, and leaving the huge majority of Americans with dwindling economic prospects and hope. Why and how did America take such a wrong turn? In this deeply researched and brilliantly woven cultural, economic, and political chronicle, Kurt Andersen offers a fresh, provocative, and eye-opening history of America’s undoing, naming names, showing receipts, and unsparingly assigning blame—to the radical right in economics and the law, the high priests of high finance, a complacent and complicit Establishment, and liberal “useful idiots,” among whom he includes himself. Only a writer with Andersen’s crackling energy, deep insight, and ability to connect disparate dots and see complex systems with clarity could make such a book both intellectually formidable and vastly entertaining. And only a writer of Andersen’s vision could reckon with our current high-stakes inflection point, and show the way out of this man-made disaster.

Summary : Brianna has longed for a life with more meaning and more purpose. What truly makes her soul come alive is music, but her life is full of laundry and dishes. One night her life is ripped apart by a fire in her village. With no family, no home, and no food, she must learn to survive on her own. But deep in her soul, anger is kindled against the Holy One for bringing so much pain into her life. Brianna sets off on an adventure that will ultimately bring her to the Hall of Minstrels, the heart of music in the kingdom, but all she ends up with is a pile of laundry and a stack of dishes. When life seems to have reached its dullest point and nothing really matters anymore, then the Holy One may pour destiny on our souls and overflow our lives with purpose and love. Then we realize that we don't have to know all of the answers to all of the questions, to know that the Holy One cares for us.

Summary : Poverty. War. Bureaucracy. Divisiveness. Gridlock. Exploitation. Farmland degradation. Water shortages. Oil Spills. Nuclear meltdowns. Unemployment. Job dissatisfaction. Debt. Divorce. Depression. Anxiety. Addiction. Fear. Isolation. Loneliness. The 21st century world we live in is charging full steam ahead, seemingly at the speed of light. Though this breakneck pace has created many amazing marvels of modern technology, it has also created a more complex set of interlocking problems than our species has ever seen before. We all contribute to perpetuating faulty global systems in one way or another, but it takes a lot of humility to be able to admit that. By firstly focusing upon changing and improving one's own ways of living, and beginning with the mantra of “it's all my fault” — rather than immediately pointing fingers and telling everyone else to change — we can break down cultural barriers, inspire action, and make much more rapid progress to reduce the immense suffering that exists in this world. Directly or indirectly, it affects us all. It's time for a new paradigm; a new type of culture that incorporates the interests of all global citizens. It's All My Fault lays out how we got here, how we can move forward in this journey, and delves deep into personal insights and vivid experiences from the author's life. It describes a practical set of innovative ideas that have the potential to ultimately lead to the day in which many of our greatest challenges — such as poverty, homelessness, and underemployment — become a thing of the past.
