• Tainted By Suspicion

      Tainted By Suspicion

      $15.95


      “Fred Lucas has performed a valuable service amid a tumultuous election year in reminding us all of our four most controversial elections, contests settled only by the intervention of other branches of government while many in the nation cried fraud. He does so in a book that moves easily between a well-researched work of history and a novel-like examination of what might have been if the outcome had gone the other way. Overall, it’s a timely and welcome reminder of how earlier citizens struggled to 'make America great.'”

          – George Condon, Chief White House Correspondent, National Journal

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “Tainted by Suspicion is rich in detail, mesmerizing and meaty. You think politics today is tough? You ain’t seen nothing till you’ve read Fred Lucas’s Tainted by Suspicion. Engrossing. Must Read. A page turner.”

          – Craig Shirley, author of three critically praised bestselling books on President Reagan, Rendezvous with Destiny: Ronald Reagan and the Campaign that Changed America, Reagan's Revolution: The Untold Story of the Campaign That Started It All and Last Act: The Final Years and Emerging Legacy of Ronald Reagan.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “The thing about historical trivia is that its not trivial. Fred Lucas, wise in the ways of Washington (both George and DC), has penned a book exploring the presidential election controversies, highlighting those in particular where one man won the popular vote and the other won the electoral college. I love books that capture the moments in pivotal elections. It is a great way to study history, akin to using an autopsy to study anatomy. If you want to know what politics was like in 1800, 1824, 1876, 1888, and 2000 no work can give you a better insight. This book is for junkees. Like me.”

          – Dick Morris, best selling author, former presidential advisor.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “I've sat next to Fred in the White House briefing room for years, and have known for quite some time that he's a diligent reporter and gifted writer. Tainted by Suspicion reflects those skills -- this is really a terrific read. It's important for Americans to understand that election controversies are nothing new -- and go all the way back to the beginning. Fred covers a lot of ground and he covers it well. Jefferson-Adams in 1800, Jackson-John Quincy Adams in 1824, Hayes-Tilden in 1876 and Bush-Gore in 2000 - and more - these are great stories and Fred brings history to life. Great book and highly recommended.”

          – Paul Brandus, White House bureau chief, West Wing Reports and author of Under This Roof - the White House and Presidency

    • In Global Warming We Trust

      In Global Warming We Trust

      $15.95


      “Anthony Sadar’s “In Global Warming We Trust” provides important information and profoundly thoughtful insights that reveal how a powerful “climate industrial complex” manipulates public vulnerability to guilt and fear to advance disastrous government energy and environmental policies that impact broad aspects of our lives. Included are a cabal of agenda-driven “green energy” rent seekers, guilt and fear- messaging politicians and environmental activists, scientifically-corrupted academicians, and compliant media pundits that misrepresent facts and distort basic science. Written by a well- informed meteorologist, there is much to trust in this fine book.”

          – Larry Bell, author of Climate of Corruption: Politics and Power Behind the Global Warming Hoax and Scared Witless: Prophets and Profits of Climate Doom

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “Tony Sadar possesses the knowledge and field experience to challenge the high priests of manmade global warming on the science that they choose to ignore. He reminds us that science is never really "settled," using inconvenient facts leavened with a measure of humor.”

          – Stan Penkala, PhD, President, Air Science Consultants

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “Tony Sadar is an air pollution meteorologist whose insight from decades of experience in government service, academia, and industry consulting makes the case for more independent thinking and less dependence on groupthink when it comes to solving critical environmental problems. In Global Warming We Trust gives a perspective sorely needed in today's climate science debate.”

          – Susan T. Cammarata, Esq., Family and Environmental Lawyer

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “In Global Warming We Trust is a unique mix of science and a clear understanding of precisely how politics, money, and power have perverted it. The book is easily understandable by the layman, but it will also richly reward any scientist who reads it.”

          – Jay Lehr, Ph.D, Science Director of The Heartland Institute

      Radical By Nature

      $20.95


      “Thomas McCaffrey’s “Radical by Nature” brings vital insights and rational sensibility revealing how radical extremism under the banner of “save the planet” mantra pitches costly and destructive “green energy” panaceas that make no technological or economic sense. His book differentiates between true conservation, a purpose that we should all champion, and agenda-driven anti-capitalist activism promulgated through manipulated fear and guilt. It’s well worth reading.”

      “Dr. Carlin’s analysis provided a rigorous overview of important developments in the scientific literature on climate change—developments which emerged since the publication of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) Fourth Assessment Report in 2007 and a report by the U.S. Climate Change Science Program (CCSP) in 2008.”

          – 2009 letter to then-EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson from U.S. Senators James Inhofe and John Barrasso

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “Mr. Carlin is instead an explanation for why the science debate is little reported in this country. The professional penalty for offering a contrary view to elites like Al Gore is a smear campaign. The global-warming crowd likes to deride skeptics as the equivalent of the Catholic Church refusing to accept the Copernican theory. The irony is that, today, it is those who dare critique the new religion of human-induced climate change who face the Inquisition.”

          – Kimberley A. Strassel, Wall Street Journal, July 3, 2009

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “I’m proud to say that Alan used materials from WUWT in his report [to EPA], and that he has been vindicated for standing up to the sloppy rush job. Thank you Mr. Carlin, for having integrity where others did not.”

          – Anthony Watts, webmaster of WattsUpWithThat.com, September 30, 2011

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      "Having observed how the EPA has functioned for more than three decades, Carlin warns that its current “environmental policy has been hijacked by radicals intent on imposing their ideology by government fiat on the rest of us whether we like it or not…If environmental policy is based on government fiat or ‘green’ policy prescriptions the results have been and are very likely to continue to be disastrous.”

      So long as it remains heavily funded and backed by the federal government, we must, like Carlin, speak out against environmental extremism. We must elect new people to govern in a more realistic, science-based fashion. We must urge our current legislators to rein in the rogue Environmental Protection Agency."

          – Alan Caruba

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “What the world needs is not decreased fossil fuel use but increased use with careful control of conventional pollutants using conventional controls where needed and justified. Conventional controls are much less expensive and much more certain to be effective than attempting to reduce fossil fuel use in order to reduce conventional pollution.

      The much maligned carbon dioxide is not a pollutant, as EPA and Obama claim, but rather a basic input to plant photosynthesis and growth, which is the basis of life on Earth. Decreasing atmospheric CO2 levels would decrease plant productivity and therefore the food supply for the rest of the ecosystem and humans, and vice versa. Further, attempts to reduce it will prove enormously expensive, futile, harmful to human welfare, and in the longer run, to environmental improvement. It is now increasingly evident that efforts to reduce CO2 emissions by governmental coercion will have important non-environmental adverse effects in terms of loss of freedom of scientific inquiry, economic growth and development, and the rule of law.”

          – Rafe Champion

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “This is excellent book. Quite possibly it is the most broadly-based outstanding contribution to the literature on the science, the economics, the politics, and the public policy issues on both climate change and related environmental developments.

      It is well-written, well researched, well argued, and thoroughly accessible for a general audience without dumbing down the science. The author is trained in physics and received a Ph.D in economics at MIT. He manages gracefully to weave strong arguments against the Catastrophic strain of Athropogenic Global Warming (CAGW) while illuminating the dire consequences of both the economic and the public policy effects of CAGW. He also offers a devastating analysis of UN Science, showing why it is not science.

      When he started to publish against the CAGW story with arguments he came to appreciate only after a period sympathetic to CAGW , he was muzzled by his employer (the EPA) after working there over 30 years. It led to his retirement and this wonderful book. The last part of the book offers a telling analysis of the current Environmental Movement in the World. It should be required reading for all literate students."

    • Rainy Day Women

      Rainy Day Women

      $10.95


      “Determined to clear a close friend who’s suspected of murdering a popular feminist leader, Austin Starr struggles to balance family and personal independence. Vivid detail of the 1960s and a clever plot make Rainy Day Women an outstanding follow-up to Kay Kendall’s strong debut, Desolation Row. Austin Starr is a memorable protagonist, and Kendall’s skill at crafting a compelling mystery kept me turning the pages!”

          – Robert Rotstein, author of The Bomb Maker’s Son and Corrupt Practices


      “Kay Kendall’s second Austin Starr mystery will have you believing it’s 1969 all over again. In a book where the musical references mean you’ll find yourself humming tunes now known as “classic vinyl”, Kendall peppers her work with references to the times which make the decades disappear – and she respects her readers enough to not overdo it. Her sense of place as she allows the mystery to unfold within Vancouver’s University of British Columbia, beset by the rain for which the “wet” coast is known, is pitch perfect. Hot diggity - a thoroughly enjoyable read. Now I’m off to dig out my Bob Dylan albums and find an old bra I can burn.”

          – Cathy Ace, author of The Cait Morgan Mysteries, and the WISE Enquiries Agency Mysteries


      “Feminism, the '60s, murder, and a friend in big trouble.  Austin Starr is back to help, leaving her husband behind but bringing her baby along.  Rainy Day Women is an entertaining and fast-paced mystery set in a turbulent time.  Right on!”

          – Bill Crider, Anthony Award-winning author of The Sheriff Dan Rhodes Mystery Series


      “An exciting jaunt back to the days of flower power and Women's Lib, Kay Kendall's Rainy Day Women explores serious issues that still resonate today, nearly fifty years later. Austin Starr's second mystery (after 2013's Desolation Row) packs danger and lots of heart, and hits all the right notes in depicting the late sixties. Austin is a smart, relentless sleuth with a baby on her hip and a Makarov pistol in her macramé purse. Right on, sister!”

          – James W. Ziskin, author of the Ellie Stone Mysteries, STYX & STONE, NO STONE UNTURNED, and STONE COLD DEAD


      "Kendall's crackerjack amateur-sleuth novel, set in the days of Mad Men, reminds you how much has changed since then, but also that the rules for writing a knockout mystery remain the same: compelling characters, vivid setting, absorbing story."

          – Timothy Hallinan, award-winning author of the Poke Rafferty Bangkok thrillers and the Junior Bender mysteries


      "Kendall paints a vivid portrait of the times – everything from macramé purses to bell bottoms and beads – but it’s her protagonist who wins our hearts in a mystery that explores issues as timely today as they were for the Woodstock generation. Highly recommended."

          – Lynne Raimondo, author of the Mark Angelotti crime novels, Dante's Wood, Dante's Poison, and Dante's Dilemma


      "The hours passed by like minutes as Rainy Day Women drew me back to the volatile and heady times when Women's Liberation first made its mark. A smart. deftly written mystery with depth that kept me guessing—all the way to the end."

          – D. J. McIntosh, bestselling author of The Witch of Babylon


      "Austin Starr is at it again, tackling a mystery in the heady days of budding feminism. But this time around she has to juggle her investigation with a new baby. A totally absorbing book."

          – Terry Shames, award-winning author of A Deadly Affair at Bobtail Ridge


      "Austin Starr is back, and that’s great news for mystery fans….Suspenseful and entertaining, this is a worthy follow-up to Kendall’s excellent debut, Desolation Row."

The stories helped Wired won two National Magazine Awards for General Excellence and countless other awards in the five years that I was editor-in-chief. When we needed someone to research a complicated story and deliver not just an insightful but engaging piece, we turned to Charles. We counted on his intelligence, curiosity, and enthusiasm, and he delivered every single time.

I feel lucky that he worked for us.”

      $18.95


      Scared Witless delivers much forewarning on the nature of the climate-hysteria business, especially for those just entering the climate debate market of ideas. . . Written in a quite readable, folksy style, Scared Witless provides an understanding and perspective much needed for the layperson and professional alike regarding the level of human culpability to climate change. . . Once again, professor Bell has provided a valuable tool that can be used in the deconstruction of the superficial edifice of “settled” climate science. Scared Witless has put the prophets and profits of climate doom on notice – knowledgeable challengers will not go quietly."

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “I have been reading Larry Bell’s commentaries on the Forbes magazine site for a long time. He is a Professor of Architecture at the University of Houston, but he is known to his readers as one of the most perceptive writers about the global warming/climate change hoax with which we have been living since the late 1980s. He brings a host of facts along with his opinion, making him invaluable to those trying to sort out the lies. His latest book is Scared Witless: Prophets and Profits of Climate Doom ($22.95, Stairway Press, softcover) and if you have been promising yourself you want to know the truth about the alleged threats to planet Earth, then this most certainly is the book to read. You will learn how and why billions have been squandered by our government and others on the apocalyptic myths that have been repeated endlessly in the mainstream media. There is no scientific basis to much of what is still being taught in our schools and presented as climate policy by the government and the many environmental groups that profit from keep everyone frightened. Bell’s book is easy to read which is a blessing when you consider the science it addresses and presents.”

          – Alan Caruba, of factsnotfantasy.blogspot.com

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “Larry Bell’s Scared Witless exposes how the global puppetmasters, international governments and the UN, environmental organizations, scientific establishments and the all too compliant media have orchestrated what may be the greatest and most dangerous-to-mankind hoax ever perpetrated. Their motivation is taxation or profit and an ideological shared desire to replace our energy and global economic system. They have conducted a focus group based marketing campaign to convince the public to buy their expensive “solutions” to stop climate change they claim is running amok. These solutions threaten many hundreds of millions of people worldwide, especially the poor including those who are newly impoverished by their policies.

      Climate activists expect us to ignore the total failures of models and manipulated data that don’t agree with their alarmist predictions. They characterize CO2 as a  greenhouse monster responsible for an ever- growing list of headline-grabbing weather disasters. They ignore the scientific method, claiming the science is settled and that since all “real scientists” agree, factual validation is no longer required.

      As more and more people are beginning to question unsupportable climate alarm claims and challenge false science we are witnessing the sort of stepped up  hysterical fear-mongering  tactics that Leon Festinger  predicted in When Prophecies Fail. Accordingly, Scared Witless is an essential read for those who are tired of the relentless government and media offensive on their sensibility, especially one that seriously threatens the future of their loved ones and this great country.”

      “Larry Bell's new book, Scared Witless: Prophets and Profits of Climate Doom, reminds me of Thomas Paine's celebrated pamphlet Common Sense, published by a brave Philadelphia namesake, Robert Bell in 1776. Common Sense laid out how King George III and his henchmen were using "noble lies" to justify their attempted enslavement of the American  people.  Scared Witless explains how the contemporary climate movement is trying to use noble lies to scare the American people into surrendering their hard-won rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to would-be philosopher kings.

      In an entertaining, common-sense style Scared Witless recounts the forces behind climate movement. The dubious science that has been invoked to buttress the cause is clearly described -- from the infamous "hockey-stick" temperature record to non-existent dangers from ocean "acidification." There is nary an equation, but for those interested in more detail, there are excellent citations of  more quantitative sources in  scientific journals and books. The non-scientific drivers of the movement are revealed with great lucidity  --  from the "profits" mentioned in the title, to the lust for political power.  I hope that  Scared Witless will enjoy the same success in American society as Common Sense did more than 200 years ago.”

      “It's all here, ladies and gentlemen. The bogus science, the scheming and the scams, the plots, the paybacks, the crony considerations. It's all laid out in a friendly and folksy prose without pretensions or rationalizations. Just the facts. There is no anger here, just a wistful thoroughly knowledgeable person bearing witness to the central fiasco of our era -- catastrophic global warming -- and its entourage of associated corrupt practices and events. Whether it is EPA, the many rent seekers profiting at the public trough, the central government policy wonks dreaming up endless ways to make government yet larger, the greens with their basketful of money and their army of lawyers equipped to push for the judgements they need, the prophets of doom who never fail to "fail upward" despite their track record of utter failure, and of course the current occupant of the White House,... the reader will meet the whole cast of characters. Amply referenced, Dr. Bell's latest book "Scared Witless: Prophets and Profits of Climate Doom" will educate any reader who is not so cognitively dissonant as to reject fact altogether. It will arm anyone who suspected the worst with the facts to confirm that suspicion. Highly recommended, the only suggestion I would make is that a book this rich in content deserves a good index to help move it from an educational read to an educational reference, and through it to Dr. Bell's many educational columns.”

      “Awesome That somebody finally gets it ! The climate always changes and has been for billions of years here on earth. Far greater warming periods and cooling periods than experienced now, and far greater concentrations of CO2, as one of the "supposed" greenhouse gases that are blamed by all the hysterians and alarmists. Our oceans both emit and absorb quantities of CO2 that are orders of magnitude larger than what mankind could ever produce. Too, and factually, we happen to be in a period where CO2 is actually at a long term deficit, so if anything, we have a much larger risk of going into a mini ICE age, than of any sort of 'warming'. That all said, it's still a good thing to focus on better resource use, cleaner air, and sustainability. Let's just not get all hyped up about stuff that is so wrong, and so mis-leading, it's borderline criminal behavior. And at the very least, I'm incredibly unethical - I point right to Al Gore when I say that. Check out the size of his mansion sometime, and understand the hypocrite for what he truly is.

      “I met Larry Bell shortly after reviewing his 2011 book Climate of Corruption: Politics and Power Behind The Global Warming Hoax. A book brought about through his friendship with renowned climate scientist Fred Singer to whom this new book is dedicated. Larry’s first book led to his selection as a columnist for Forbes and Newsmax. More than three hundred columns later he has become, in my opinion, the most astute analyst of all that goes on in our world of environmental terrorism, perpetrated by our government with the full but somewhat veiled support of the many environmental zealot groups whose vast income is derived from this very terror. Their intention for whatever reason is to bring society as we know it to its knees.

      For a few years a number of us have implored Larry to consolidate his best columns into a book for posterity. He refused until now, and this new book makes it obvious why. He could not, in his words from the Preface, create a "patchwork of old articles". He knew he would have to start from scratch and that is what he finally did. He reviewed his vast storehouse of knowledge gained from years of weekly analytical columns. He then created a perfectly coordinated fresh approach to explaining the fix we are in and how we got here at the hands of those who for whatever reason desire to march society backwards into The Dark Ages.

      If you care about our environment, our government, our children, our future and society in general, you must read this amazing book. There have now been many outstanding books describing the damage being done by environmental zealotry, most of which I cited in my recent paper encouraging the phase out of the EPA as we know it. But none have chronologically and precisely taken you down the destructive path we will continue to follow if enough of us do not rise up with The Heartland Institute, and force an end to the socialist goal of destroying our productive capitalist society.

      Larry works his magic in only 227 uncrowded narrative pages with a prose style equivalent to his chatting with you. His 18 brief chapters deal with laser like precision on the fraudulent climate consensus, the climate modeling travesty, the famous Hockey Stick, how real data is ignored, the political destruction of science, the climate religion, impacts on your neighborhood, melting glaciers, coral reef health, biodiversity fraud, green energy madness, biofuel pipe dreams, fossil fuel lies, the EPA Rampage, Green Fascism, carbon taxes, from Malthus to Ehrlich to Holdren to McCarthy, and finally the United Nation's plan for America and how to defund it.

      I can't summarize this book but I can tantalize readers with some material that was new to me after 45 years of studying EPA. Larry quotes Mikhail Gorbachev in 1996' "the threat of environmental crisis will be the international disaster key to unlock The New World Order". He quotes the U.S. Government Accounting Office as saying between 2003 and 2010 a total of $106.7 billion was spent on climate issues, which does not include the $79 billion spent for climate change technology research, tax breaks for green energy and foreign aid to other countries to address their climate problems.

      He tells us ""the federal government regulatory operations cost $54 billion a year, bigger than the combined expenditures of McDonalds, Ford, Disney and Boeing". Those many billions fund the growth of government agencies that depend upon public fear; university departments that bend objectivity to secure research grants; activist environmental groups that rely on crisis premised donations to support lobbying and media programs; anti-fossil alternative energy lobbies seeking special subsidies, and a wide range of politicians, prophets and profiteers who cash in on save the world hype.

      Bigger problems ensue, he says, "when monstrous regulatory bureaucracies are allowed to inflict callous abuse and endangerment upon legal and economic structures of the very society they were established to protect. And this is clearly occurring.”

      Until you read chapter 15 Green Fascism, you could not possibly imagine the collusion going on the past ten years between EPA and the Sierra Club, the American Lung Association, Environmental Defense and a host of other groups who receive grants from EPA then sue them and settle on a prearranged settlement plan. Concurrently their personnel move from EPA to those groups and back again through the revolving door of their coordinated attack on American industry. And did you know that many of these groups are funded secretly, escaping public notice, by a billionaires club described by Larry through a quote from a Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works Minority Staff Report (before the 2014 election) which said:

      "While it is uncertain why they operate in the shadows and what they are hiding, what is clear is that these individuals and foundations go to tremendous lengths to avoid public association with the far left environmental movement they so generously fund”.

      This book provides unlimited ammunition for the climate/energy realists who support the work of Heartland and other free market libertarian organizations.”

      “David Ellison has his hand on the fading pulse of American education. His exposé on the various false fixes of school reform–including vouchers, charters, standardized testing, and even the current Common Core Standards–leaves the reader sharing both his outrage as well as his ‘stubborn hope that America and it’s schools will be great again.’ This is a must-read for teachers, parents, law makers… anyone who claims to care about this country’s schools and the children who too often fail to thrive in them.”

          - Jay Davidson, author of Teach Your Children Well: A Teacher’s Advice for Parents

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      "A veteran teacher schools us on the dangerous course of our present educational reforms. A must read.

      Veteran teacher David Ellison has clearly and concisely identified the myriad problems with today’s school reform in America in his new book titled Bloodletting: Why Education Reform Is Killng America’s Schools. He discusses the issues that have led to our current state of despair, outlining specific reasons these most recent reforms are damaging our schools, and provides clear, but difficult, solutions. He calls out various government and big business officials for their attempts to use market-based reforms and explains why these are all steps in the wrong direction using the analogy of the primitive and dangerous medical practice of bloodletting:

      We understand that those well-meaning doctors-of-old had misdiagnosed their patients. Indeed, diseases are much too diverse and complex ever to allow for any simple, generic cure. Thus, instead of healing, bloodletting often made people sicker.” (Introduction)

      Ellison reveals the true causes of today’s plight: poverty, unqualified and disillusioned teachers, vouchers and charter schools, and gross underfunding. He highlights efforts of researchers to get these education reformers to use data to make things better rather than ignoring what it shows to further their harmful agendas. He debunks merit-pay as a solution to ineffective teachers by pointing out that what really gets teachers excited is “the moment when we show a student who never thought she could succeed that she can.” (p. 33) He also calls out charter schools for taking the best and brightest teachers and students from public schools, giving them smaller class sizes and more support and then leaving the kids who really need that support to wallow in paltry conditions.

      As a local educator in my twentieth year, Ellison’s book spoke to me in a powerful way as both a teacher and a parent. Especially enlightening was the section that detailed the legacy of the great reforms the California Teacher’s Association has championed throughout its history and how as an organization we need to get back to those roots and focus more on addressing the issues that are truly hurting our children. In this time where I find myself drowning in mandated testing and the implementation of the Common Core standards, it often feels impossible to see beyond my classroom to the needs of our children as a whole. As a parent, I worry about the state our schools will be in as my children reach middle and high school. Will they get the support they need, or will they be beaten down by seemingly unreachable standards and anxiety-producing tests? Will they get to enjoy the arts? Will they receive vocational training, if that is what they desire? They’ve already had many experiences taken away from them such as the field trips that kids look forward to every year. My son even had his recess cut this year in the afternoon. This is having a huge impact on his ability to get his energy out before he comes home and his ability to focus on homework.

      I’ve had the privilege of observing Mr. Ellison as a presenter. I’ve had a child be inspired by his teachings, and his writings have galvanized me in my own work. I’ve worked in the same district as Mr. Ellison for fourteen years and experienced the frustrations he describes in the book. I can assure you he has meticulously and accurately portrayed the state of education in our community.

      Perhaps the most resounding portion of the book is our leaders’ refusal to look at the impressive example of Finland as a better option for school reform. In fact, we are moving in the opposite direction and I fear what that will do to our already crippled education institution. I have hope, however, because I work with some of the most downtrodden of our kids and they come to school each week attempting to reach their goal of earning a high school diploma despite the type of backstories Mr. Ellison describes in the book. Mr. Ellison states on page 94 that “the truth is, our educational system is so dysfunctional that we cannot just reform it. We must transform it, transcend it, redesign in from the ground up according to...an entirely new and enlightened paradigm.” In order to go to work each week and send my own children to school each day, I have to believe we can do this. It’s going to take parents, teachers, and all community stakeholders to make this happen, but it can be done. Bloodletting is an effective critique of educational reform in all it’s gore and glory. Reading this book will educate you, infuriate you, and hopefully, inspire you."

      The Private War of Corporal Henson

      $13.95


      ““The Private War of Corporal Henson” by E. Michael Helms is a story of the victory of the human spirit in Corporal Nathan Henson. It is about an overcomer at a turning point in life where he can sink, as some of his comrades do, under the burden of PTSD, or embrace another type of battle as an ex-Marine and face the challenge of living and loving fully after seeing a great deal of the worst that life has to offer.

      The classic theme of the overcomer who triumphs over all the odds is really what the spirit of the Marine Corps is about. It is what we celebrate in life and is a choice to take a risk and care once more, and grow in depth and character. This book is about a man coming into his own despite great loss and tragedy in his past. The reader cannot help but love Nathan Henson as he lets his landlady’s cat, who is a lush, lap up some beer and follow him around looking for goodies. The cat knows where to find some fun.

      This is a tale of dawning understanding of life and forgiveness of himself for things in battle that were not his fault and learning to re-frame experience in a more realistic way. It shows Nathan getting unstuck from the past and moving into a more mature and complex view of living. The story is structured around a series of therapy sessions for combat veterans who are all stuck at the point of trauma and each man’s story is unique and fascinating as is his response to counseling. Nathan’s charming sense of humor is disarming and rings delightfully true. His hilarious bouts with high blood pressure have everything to do with his doctor’s new nurse with the spun gold hair and her rising and falling breasts as she breathes close to him and measures his blood pressure that is invariably high as he all but swoons when her soft hands take his pulse. The corporal discovers that despite all the sex he has had he was still a virgin because he was never emotionally engaged with a woman during sex.

      He almost faints when he sees the lady in question “poured” into a nipple showing white bathing suit during a camping trip. “Where’s the rest of it?” He quips while taking in an eyeful.

      This book is no holds barred and goes into all the misery of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder so expect some grisly realistic depictions of that malady as well as a road map for sufferers to get well if that is what they want. “The Private War of Corporal Henson” contains hauntingly poetic descriptions of nature that are among the most delicate and beautiful that this reader has encountered in literary classics in the English language. You will be sad when you finish this book and miss Nathan Henson. Thumbs up this is a must read, can’t put it down book.”

      “Given To Me For An Honest Review

      The Private War of Corporal Henson by E. Michael Helms is a must read. It's a real page turner and those pages will seem to turn theirselves until you finish reading. I found this to be a good read. It's the story of one Marine who came home after serving in VietNam, but it really is the story of all those who served and came back. They left a war zone, caught a flight and landed in the World but what they found was another war zone.Corporal Henson's story could be anyone's story. They suffered from the horrors of war, the feelings of guilt (they made it back others didn't) the loss of friends, depression, fear of being alone and so many other emotions. As you read this book you will get that feeling that you are drawn in and become a part of this story. I recommend this book to everyone and I look for more great books by E. Michael Helms.”

      “A compelling memoir!

      Susan Pease Banitt, a Harvard trained psychotherapist and social worker, has quoted remarkably about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as:

      “PTSD is a whole-body tragedy, an integral human event of enormous proportions with massive repercussions.”

      The Private War of Corporal Henson by E. Michael Helms is a semi-autobiographical memoir which is about a Corporal named Nathan Henson and is also the sequel to The Proud Bastards . Although, I didn't get to read E. Michael Helm's previous book, still after reading this one, I was left completely amazed and touched by Henson's story after the war in Vietnam! We rarely had any idea about the lives of the soldiers after the war and Michael has drawn a vivid picture of them in his new book, The Private War of Corporal Henson .

      A complete eye-opener!

      First of all, I'd like to thank the author, E. Michael Helms, for giving me this opportunity to read and review his book.

      Corporal Henson has returned home to Florida from the war in Vietnam. But along with his luck to be alive from the grotesque war, he has also brought along infinite number of painful memories. Soon he finds that he is suffering from PTSD and hence joins a support group with the other veterans in order to make peace with his ghosts of his past. There he befriends few of the veterans and form a strong brotherly bond with them. But the road to a good life and to make peace with his past seems like a grueling struggle and is filled with enough challenges to make peace with his inner soul.

      E. Michael Helms has drawn his readers into this compelling fictional memoir, where the pain is raw and the struggle is strikingly portrayed. And as you turn the pages, you'll fall in love with Helm's storytelling and smooth flow of narration. Also there is enough rocking chemistry that keeps the readers more glued to the book! A story of an emotional wreck cannot be easy to write, but the author has pulled the strings quite skillfully and made the plot not only intriguing but also thoroughly mesmerizing!

      Read this book to have a firsthand experience into the lives of those who have felt pain right through their very skin and how hard it is for them to overcome the trauma in a day!”

      “Powerful and emotional story by an awesome writer

      The Private War of Corporal Henson, written by E. Michael Helms, is an amazing,honest, real, heart filled, and powerful story that takes you into the lives of four Vietnam War vets after the war is over.

      The war may be over but not for these soldiers left scarred by the profound loss and hurt they endured and carried home with them.

      They left one war only to come home to a new war all their own. The soldiers in this story are from various MOS's and branches of service, yet they share the same internal battle of learning how to let go of their guilt, pain, and loss so that they may go on living in this polar opposite world they find themselves only half living in. Their other half is still on the battlefield. Will they come out of this new war alive?

      This book takes you with them as they try to improvise, adapt, and overcome.

      Throughout reading this story, I found myself feeling everything from profound sadness and sorrow to happiness and everything in between. I cried, laughed, expressed anger out-loud, and often I would drift off in deep thought thinking about the soldiers in this story.

      You will also want to read 'The Proud Bastards', which is a memoir of the author's experience in the Vietnam War.

      Anytime you pick up a book by author E. Michael Helms you are guaranteed an incredible read! I was first introduced to Mr. Helms when I read his historical fiction novel, "Of Blood & Brothers: Book One" nearly two years ago. Since then I have read every book he has written and fall more in love with his fictional stylings every time.

      The Private War of Corporal Henson actually follows his book, The Proud Bastards, which is a semi-autobiographical story of his time in the Vietnam War. That little background only serves to draw readers deeper into this book and connect even more emotionally with Corporal Henson.

      This book, as with all of Mr. Helms books, is a wonderful read and one that readers will enjoy from cover to cover.”

      “A compelling look at loss in the wake of Vietnam...

      THE PRIVATE WAR OF CORPORAL HENSON was quite honestly more than I expected. I thoroughly enjoyed THE PROUD BASTARDS, Helms' memoir of his time as a marine in Vietnam, but didn't know what to expect from the fictional (and semi-autobiographical) sequel. Not only is THE PRIVATE WAR OF CORPORAL HENSON the heart-rending story of a group of veterans facing down their demons, it is also--surprisingly--a compelling romance. I appreciate and admire Helms' style in dealing with such an emotional and complex premise. How are veterans supposed to reacclimatize to a society that has moved on where they cannot? And more universally--how do we deal with loss? Helms takes these questions on in a case-by-case look through the lives of his well-drawn and most-believable characters. Be it Vic Guerino's familial struggles, Dan Matthews' flirtation with the needle, or Nathan Henson's inability to find intimate connection, all was handled with the deft and beautifully descriptive hand of an author who has dealt with his own loss and hence paints a story that is refreshingly un-contrived. THE PROUD BASTARDS was fascinating because of its gritty and brave portrayal of an unpopular war; THE PRIVATE WAR OF CORPORAL HENSON is more so because it tackles a far more courageous endeavor--not the recounting of events but their emotional aftermath.”

      “A Powerful Story from the Heart of Powerful Author

      Once again, E. Michael Helms has rocked me to my knees with his words. The Private War of Corporal Henson follows a young soldier returning from Vietnam, to the unwelcoming arms of the country he swore to serve with his life. He may no longer be on the battlefield, but the trauma his heart and mind underwent is still burning through him, neatly labled PTSD. How does a man deal with the horrors of war, the loss of friends, and the guilt of surviving when he no longer fits in the civilian world he has returned to? Tortured by nightmares and flashbacks, Nathan Henson finds a common ground and a brotherhood in a group of vets also struggling to find a way to cope. Together they form a bond where brother can lean on brother, where it is okay to cry, to laugh and to remember. Their group is a safe zone for their darkest horrors. But will it be enough to overcome the soul haunting guilt?

      Years have passed and still Nathan Henson suffers as he refuses to give up on healing. When those he thought were strong falter, where will he find the strength to hang on? Nathan seeks to fill the void in his heart that even his “brothers” can’t fill, giving him hope and terrifying him at the same time. Is Nathan worthy of love? Is he able to give it or will he lose his tenuous hold on his demons and push away a second chance at life and love?

      E. Michael Helms writes from the heart, from experiences he can relate to and has lived. With each page, the suffering of these men comes to life in an up close way as the brutal truth of their abandonment and lack of understanding from the country they served fails to give them more than a band-aid for their gaping wounds. For me, it was terrifying to be in the mind of Nathan Henson, to know that so many are still prisoners of a war that ended long ago and few are able to find escape. E. Michael Helms reminds us that time cannot always heal all wounds when they become entangled in an evil so vile, despicable and unthinkable. We can read about it, watch someone we know try to “deal” with PTSD, but only one who has come through that hell can truly understand. With his amazing gift for writing, Mr. Helms has once again created characters that come to life with a realism that will clutch at your heart and burrow deep into your soul. He has taken a dark topic, and remembered to light a candle of hope for his main character, as well as those who got to know Nathan, signature Helms writing, powerful magnetic.”

      “Yet another fantastic book from author E. Michael Helms

      (review via epicbookquest.com)

      “It wasn’t the homecoming Nathan Henson had envisioned… a quick flight back to “the World” on a freedom bird to some west coast airport where one could hopefully slip back into the heartland unnoticed by hostile demonstrators. Forty-eight hours from the jungle to the streets. Welcome home.“

      For Corporal Henson, the war may be over, but the battle has just begun. Suffering from PTSD, he struggles to adjust back to civilian life, haunted by memories from the battlefield, and of his fellow soldiers who lost their lives there.

      In search of healing, he joins a group with other veterans where they recount their tales and experiences, forming a deep bond of brotherhood. The road to recovery is difficult- the war has taken its toll on all of them, though they each have different ways of dealing with it. Some better than others.

      For Nathan, his saving grace comes in the form of a beautiful young woman, giving him a second chance at a love that he thought he would never feel again. And yet, the scars remain- and the more he struggles to come to terms with his past, and to help his brother soldiers, the more he fears he will lose everything all over again.

      Yet another fantastic book from author E. Michael Helms, The Private War is honest and real, offering the reader a glimpse into the everyday realities of our veterans. To me, this book had a much different feel than the other works I have read by Helms, written with a raw emotion and almost desperate sincerity, though it certainly kept all the key marks I have come to expect from this author- complex characters, true romance, and the ultimate struggle of good over evil. Written as a semi-autobiographical fictional sequel to “The Proud Bastards”, Helms draws upon his own experiences during the Vietnam war to shape this powerful story of human emotion and struggle. Highly recommended!

      I have received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.”

      $15.95


      “Todd Sentell’s fictional Toonamint of Champions is like a convergence of NBC’s ‘The Office’ and Golf Channel’s ‘Big Break.’ The narrative is antic in the extreme and occasionally hysterical in its savage characterization of a certain oleaginous Southern golf gentility.”

          -Golfweek

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “Golf inspires its share of mystical celebration, but it also provides fertile ground for low comedy-take Caddyshack, or the novels of Dan Jenkins and Rick Reilly. When it comes to over-the-top slapstick, though, golf journalist Sentell makes Jenkins and Reilly look like somber social realists out of the Emile Zola school.”

          -Booklist

      “If it’s wacky you want it’s wacky you’ll get with Toonamint of Champions Georgia humorist Todd Sentell’s spoof about a golf nut’s lifelong dream to putt around the Augusta National Golf Course and as a bonus have his non-golfing hairdresser girlfriend LaJuanita Mumps pinned as“the first ever” female member of the Club. Regardless of which way your funny bone swings Sentell’s Toonamint of Champions will give a brand new meaning to ‘par for the course.’”

      “Since reading this book, I’ve become a fan of other comedic authors, including Carl Hiaasen and Christopher Moore, but I think a new book has taken over the crown as my favorite funny book. Sentell has filled his story with bigger than life characters, and I was literally laughing on almost every page ... his is a unique writing style that’s basically full of run-on sentences, but his wordplay is fantastic. It’s sort of like Elmore Leonard, except nobodygets shot at the end of each sentence.”

      “Brilliant and Precise

      You would think that people with an axe to grind against logic or the presumed lack of it, would use logic somewhere to contest it. But honestly, perhaps I am another buffoon. I don't get it. However, with two forgotten Masters in Physics from two of the best colleges, may I say this?:---- Newton's law was knowingly modified or improved by Einstein. He didn't ever say Newton was wrong did he? Certainly not with an outraged sense of modesty. Similarly, Feynman, Schrodinger, Heisenberg et al, built on Classical Mechanics to create Quantum Mechanics. They are complementary...one is a first approximation of the other, that's all. No one has said that Newton or Einstein was either "vicious" or stupid. They all built on the foundations of simplicity. The basis of the improvement was indeed simple. And it is true that the likelihood of something being wrong is proportional to the complexity of the argument. That is why the concept of KISS came about: Keep it Simple Stupid. Where I come from originally, we always have a bunch of soothsayers sitting by the roadside, emphatically claiming that say, on June 21, the world will be over. Thankfully, on June 22 they move on to another location or show up in a disguise. Not what Professors do, it seems! In contrast, Ken, and I know him for a decade, is truly a brilliant mind. In general, agreement and disagreement must be based on facts, not fixed notions like "let's hang the first person who dare says the earth is round" and so on. Logic! Someone may claim Ken is not using it, or is "vicious" somewhere, but where does that place that person with a far more obvious lack of logic and an almost disabling level of viciousness and outraged indignation, which is very suspicious in itself if you ask me. Almost like a personal or religious belief is being desperately protected. Can we talk facts for a change? Can we ever understand or at least accept an opposite viewpoint? One that doesn't shatter our comfort level, however blind our comfort level? Ken is a master. You just need to read his books far more carefully. Or it may really bother you!”

      $13.95


      “In Bryn Greenwood’s gritty and unsentimental novel, characters struggle to balance what they know to be true against how the world wishes to see them. Dryly humorous and quirky, you’ll find yourself thinking about the issues it raises long after you’ve turned the final page.”

          –Liz Michalski, author of Evenfall

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “Rarely does one find a character-centered book so gripping. From first page to last, Lie Lay Lain is impossible to put down. Greenwood’s eye for detail is phenomenal, and her dialogue so pitch-perfect that I don’t even feel like I’ve just read a book. I feel like I’ve become intimately acquainted with two very real people - aspirations, faults, insecurities and all. I tried to start another book after I finished Greenwood’s, and I couldn’t do it. Jennifer and Olivia were people to me; I cared about them deeply, and I needed time to let them go.”

          –Ramsey Hootman, author of Courting Greta

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “The worst lies are the ones we tell ourselves

      Jennifer Palhete has it all. She's rising up the corporate ladder, although the hours are killing her. She has the perfect fiancée. She's also a shop-a-holic with tastes she can't really afford, and a family who just doesn't "get" her. She doesn't recognize how much she's lying to herself. But a horrific accident becomes the fulcrum that tilts Jennifer's carefully balanced life in directions she could never anticipate when a dying woman mistakes Jennifer for someone else and begs her to take care of her daughter, Shanti.

      Olivia Holley is a mousy church secretary, living at home with her dysfunctional parents and a brain-damaged brother. She's the one everyone leans on. Not even Olivia recognizes that all that leaning has all but crushed the life from her. She counts the lies she tells and tries to balance them. How many good lies make up for the bad lies? But when Olivia decides to turn a lie into a truth, her world shifts in ways she never expected and isn't equipped to manage.

      Jennifer's lies. Olivia's lies. Promises made. Promises broken. And a search for truths that will change everything.

      What I really like about Ms. Greenwood's writing is her eye for the tiny details that lend verisimilitude to her characters and settings and bring them to life. Even secondary characters are well described and aren't merely cardboard puppets propping up the action. But the real draw is her central characters and their arc--the way a small, almost inconsequential action turns into a groundswell that upends everything and forces them to either change and grow, or surrender to mediocrity. It's about learning not to lie to yourself first.

      The story is told in two viewpoints--Jennifer and Olivia--alternating in clearly marked chapters. Their lives--and lies--intertwine and tangle and unravel and reshape both of them. If I had any nit to pick it would be at the very end. The book opens with Jennifer and should have ended with her, instead of Olivia, to give more a sense of coming full circle. Jennifer's ending is inferred, but readers like to see justice actually done, and it would have felt more complete and satisfactory to me to have seen Jennifer's resolution and justice for Shanti actually on the page. But enough is there that I wasn't left unsatisfied. I'm greedy. I wanted just a bit more.

      This book pretty much defies genre classification. It's a character-driven literary piece with elements of suspense, romance, and what is called "inspirational fiction." Don't worry about where to put it on your bookshelf, just enjoy Ms. Greenwood's deft storytelling and wonderful characterizations.”

      “A truly enjoyable read.

      I love Bryn Greenwood's writing. Her characters are real people. You get to know them gradually. I love how the layers are added. A memory here, a reaction to a new event, there. And a plot-line to weave them all together that just keeps me reading and reading for more details about these people.

      Jennifer and Olivia are two people that we can relate to. Parts of us are in each of them. And their struggles to interact with friends/family/work and church are what we deal with every day. But, the stories each of them are living, and the how the stories eventually come together are so well written.

      Thank you, Bryn, for writing about people that I think about long after the book is done.”

      “This was a Good Read

      I'm a writer who hates reviews — don't much like reading them and hate to write them. Why I feel this way is a matter between me and a guy with a couch I pay $100 an hour to listen when I can afford him.

      What's important for you is that I am writing a review, short as it is, because I liked this book. As someone mentioned, the main characters were very realistic and easy to identify/empathize with. How two very different lives become entangled is a clever plot device — there are inciting incidents in both lives early on but the turns in both story arcs share a common event.

      If you want nonstop action, this is not the book for you, but if you enjoy well-developed characters and occasional surprises, I suggest you pick up a copy. I found myself repeating this question throughout: "Now what is she going to do?"”

          – John C. Philipp, 4 Star Amazon Review

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “Overlapping trajectories

      Jennifer and Olivia are two women on very different trajectories at the beginning of this interesting, well-written novel. (It unfolds slowly, but that's a good thing--the reader truly gets to know these women and their problems, mistakes, and situations well. Action/plot drive ramps up in the second half of the novel, and it's enough to satisfy anyone who prefers mysteries or thrillers, but you have to KNOW the characters first, so I applaud Greenwood's pacing decisions here.)

      Jennifer and Olivia's lives overlap in interesting ways, and the woman who seems to have it all slips and the beaten down woman finds her voice. That's not to say the downfall or rise of either character is complete, because many questions remain at the end, but it's fulfilling to see Olivia gain confidence, and to see Jennifer become less shallow. The title has extra resonance because each character is both the perpetrator and the victim of a lie and, like making the grammatically correct decision about which word to use, the way forward for each woman is muddled by complications.

      This is a very good, thoughtful novel.”

          – Sarah Hancockon, 4 Star Amazon Review

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “I loved this book

      The pace is slow but comfortable and the plots in Lie Lay Lain are always interesting... different from anything I've personally experienced but completely plausible. I often found myself wondering what I'd do in the characters' situations.

      I find Bryn's writing style to be very visual. After finishing one of her books, I feel like I've seen a nice indie film. Not wall-to-wall car crashes but a slice of lives which I understand and enjoy "watching".”

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “I was pleasantly surprised by this book, well I think that is putting it a little lightly, I was stunned by this book. This is the first book by Mike Farris that I have read and it definitely won't be the last. This book follows Terri Squire as she is struggling to turn her acting career around. She is bequeathed a screenplay from a screenwriter who committed suicide. Terri ends up making the movie but finds herself the prime suspect when suspicions arise concerning the screenwriter's death.

      At the beginning of the book I didn't really like Terri. I didn't feel much sympathy for her over her career trouble and I couldn't believe that she would let her agents come crawling back when the mysterious script showed up. As I read more of the book and Terri's past was revealed a bit more I started to like her and really feel bad for her.

      There was so much that happened in this book, so much action. Just when I thought something else couldn't possibly happen to top the last mysterious death/shooting/chase scene something else would happen leaving me hanging on the edge of my seat. Everything kept building up towards an explosion at the end and let me tell you I was definitely not disappointed with the ending. I would highly recommend this book if you are looking for a lot of action and a lot of mystery.”

      “New book discovery is the tonic this patient needed

      Whether fighting a simple 24-hour flu virus or dealing with the subject of doctors who trade copies of hospital MRI reports before debating on whether a patient should remain housebound — and I have lived them both in the past couple months — I would wager that either a good movie or a brilliant new book is the patient’s best tonic.

      There is no way anyone can convince me otherwise.

      Ah, but how about the discovery of a book set in the world of movies and Hollywood? Could that fresh new author really pull this off?

      After reading a new novel by Mike Farris called “The Bequest,” my guess is an enthusiastic yes, and for a good many reasons. In fact, Hollywood also may bid on this story.

      The tale manages to be gripping even when barely believable. For example, Teri Squire, a young, beautiful actress, already having won more than one Academy Award, stars in a series of bombs. Nobody wants to buy what she is selling. Her new movie is another “Heaven’s Gate.” The press turns on her, labeling her box-office “poison.”

      But get this: The agency holding her contract plans to dump it that very day. Her manager, also her lover, also plans to turn on her, in effect firing her on the same day.

      This is the most ridiculous and unbelievable part of the book.

      A two-time Oscar winner may be shunned, even ignored or moved to the back pages in the Los Angeles Times, but never is fired.

      Farris simply wanted to move his new story into high gear quickly. So do it.

      This new story is indeed intriguing, involving the last screenplay by a loser author. How much of a loser, you ask?

      This author, Leland Crowell, never has sold a script. He planned for months to commit suicide by driving his car into the rocks along California’s Big Sur coastline.

      And his lawyer and mother are made aware that, before he died, he bequeathed his final script to actress Teri Squire.

      No one else can make the movie.

      The press eats it up. So does a cynical public.

      Yes, and so do Squires’ former representatives, who want her to return and make the movie — which they have not even read yet. Squire, however, is sickened by such dark publicity — well, at least until she picks it up out of her pile of rejects and reads it a couple of days later.

      It turns out that “The Precipice” is about a serial killer involved with a counselor who happens to be a first class hypnotist.

      She hands it over to her agency and work begins on everything behind the scenes.

      Mind you, no one knows that Crowell’s lawyer committed suicide after learning that he had completed his assignment, convincing Squire that she owed it to this pathetic writer to make his movie.

      Movies are not overnight projects. To his credit, Farris is extremely comfortable with words and descriptions. There are funny insults traded in the open by the California Highway Patrolmen and those working for the Beverly Hills Police.

      But what the reader finds is a mystery thriller that goes far beyond the length of a simple motion picture. Farris has written an exciting venture that involves not only Crowell’s family, but secrets within Squire’s lineage, as well.

      Will the movie remain on screen?

      Probably?

      But “The Precipice” appears to be on the verge of making viewers discover mysterious nooks and crannies that may never be fully explained. At the very least, it becomes a crackerjack novel, overall.

      It may not be perfect, but few will fault it as they close the book jacket and sigh in the wee hours of the night. After all, no one will want to put this story down; that much is for sure.”

In 1810, there was one billion people in the world, today seven billion people, technologically superior but biologically the same, we continue to dehumanize and demonize other people on the road to new wars. Denis Rancourt is asking questions that our youth need to hear.”

          -Terrance Nelson, Co-Chair, American Indian Movement, Spokesman Okiijida Warrior Society, former five-term Chief of Roseau River Anishinabe First Nation

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      “To understand Denis Rancourt and his book, Hierarchy and Free Expression in the Fight Against Racism, you have to know the difference between critical thinking and independent thinking.

      Critical thinking is nothing special. Every college student is taught to do it, to prepare for employment fielding matters for employers. On the job, critical thinking amounts to little more than the ability to say, “The boss isn’t going to like this.” You don’t need your own ideology to say that. You need only understand the boss’s ideology and use it to guide your work.

      The safest way to avoid making a fatal mistake in such work, and to advance through the ranks, is to adopt the assigned way of thinking as your own. Your life becomes routine and you vanish from history, but you get a roof over your head and more than enough food for your pie hole. It’s the Devil’s bargain for survival in hierarchical organizations.

      Rancourt is having none of it. Having become an activist and thereby having experienced the excitement, exhilaration and fulfillment of helping to shape the society he lives in, Rancourt sees cog-in-the-wheel life as a living death.

      As a tenured professor of physics at the University of Ottawa, Rancourt noticed that students were emerging from physics courses without truly grasping the concepts behind the techniques that they were learning. The instruction was more indoctrination than education. Grades reflected obedience and memorization more than real understanding. The system prepared students to be obedient critical thinkers but did not arm them with the understanding required to be independent thinkers. That served employers, who want technically trained employees who don’t have their own agendas.

      Rancourt became an outspoken critic of the university. (And I was fortunate enough to get to know him at that time.) He blogged about how the institution’s undemocratic structure and corporate orientation led to malfeasance at all levels, from the president’s office to the classroom. And he worked to promote student activism. In response, the university repeatedly tried to discipline him for various contrived infractions, but the repressive measures didn’t hold up upon review. Finally, the university fired Rancourt under the pretext that an unconventional grading system that he used in one class wasn’t permitted by the rules, despite its success in getting students to grasp concepts. His dismissal led to one of the biggest academic freedom cases in Canada.

      The university continued to try to silence Rancourt even after it fired him. As I describe below, the university used public money to finance a private lawsuit against Rancourt for refusing to withdraw his stinging criticism of one of the university’s “service intellectuals” (a term that Rancourt uses incisively).

      Rancourt’s book is more wide-ranging than its title implies, as it covers much more than the fight against racism. Rancourt argues for student liberation, tries to use biology to explain social hierarchy, discusses how workplace hierarchy is a source of stress and a health hazard, criticizes establishment medicine, describes how the social system works to keep individuals powerless, and discusses the role of collaborators in maintaining the status quo. He brings independent thinking to each topic, often opening up new lines of thinking about long-standing social problems. In this way his book is seminal, and one hopes that he and others will follow through on his ideas and see where they lead.

      In a theme that pervades the book, Rancourt argues that the structure of society reflects the state of an ongoing battle between oppressive hierarchy and the individual’s impulse for freedom and influence. He says that the hierarchical system needs to disorient and incapacitate us. It uses brutal methods that exploit the dependence of our self-identities on our social status, over which the bosses exercise much control.

      In another theme, Rancourt is highly critical of critical race theory. He argues that suppressing the expression of racist opinions prevents real, enlightening debate and thereby undermines the individual’s political development and the struggle against racism.

      The racism issue that Rancourt addresses arose after the student union on his campus publicly reported a pattern of discrimination by the university. To the embarrassment of the university, the report received much media attention. In response, the president of the university asked a black assistant professor to publicly “evaluate” the student report. In just a few days’ time, and with university guidance behind the scenes, the professor produced an “independent” public report, which the university posted on its website, questioning the validity of the student findings.

      To present as “independent” an evaluation produced in this way would be considered unethical in science, journalism, government, and even advertising. It would be seen as a gussied-up version of: “I’m not a racist, am I?” “Of course not, boss.”1,2 However, when Rancourt criticized the relationship between the professor and her employer in terms that Malcolm X used to describe similar situations, the university moved to silence him. It hired a top corporate lawyer to pursue a million dollar lawsuit against Rancourt, in the name of the black professor.

      But that effort to silence Rancourt backfired. Lawyers usually advise litigants to shut up, but Rancourt repeatedly spoke out about the lawsuit and made its details public; the media reported on it. In the book, Rancourt discusses the suit and critiques the philosophy behind it.

      I don’t agree with Rancourt on every issue. For example, he says that it is “self-evident” that social hierarchy is natural, a product of human biology. If such biological determinism hadn’t been discredited by 20th century history, then I would respond by asserting that the ongoing fight for democracy is natural. And in this I would quote Rancourt himself, for the main thrust of his book is that social hierarchy has to be forced upon people.

      But Rancourt’s main goal isn’t to get you to agree with him on the issues. Rather, his goal is to provoke you to reject the boring, worn-out framework within which the issues are debated in the mass media and academe, and think independently. His book worked for me, as I ended up thinking about important issues in new ways.”

      Chain of Command

      $10.95


      “The President and the Vice President are both killed catapulting the Speaker of the House into the White House as the first woman President of the United States. And that is just the opening of Mrs Marshall's first novel. Talk about a thrill a minute. The book is definitely that and then some. Journalist McKenzie McClendon who is relegated to second tier on the newspaper she works for takes a popular opinion of the murders that U.S. Navy SEALS committed the crimes and writes a scathing condemnation of these elite warriors. Former Navy SEAL Noah Hutchins has an entirely different opinion of the crimes. His former buddy is found dead and blamed for one of the murders. He does not believe this and decides to go after the real killers. He convinces McKenzie to work with him with the carrot of being able to write the story of the century about the truth.

      The duo come into contact with several groups involved in the assassination plot; a violent feminist organization, foreign terrorists and crooked politicians.

      When the reader thinks they have the plot all figured out, there is another twist added, and all in all there are more twists and turns than a roller coaster. Noah and McKenzie thrown together in a dangerous situation develop feelings for each other and this develops into an underlying normal theme. The ending is not telegraphed, although clues do appear in the scenario. Definitely a book that is impossible to put down, and needs to be finished in one sitting savoring the literature. Hutchins and McKenzie may appear in a future book written by Mrs Marshall but the most important thing is that there should be future books written by this talented author.”

      “As I’ve said before, it’s difficult to fool me. I usually predict the ending of books. Chain of Command was a great page burner with a wonderful twist at the ending. I predicted part of it, but I suspect most people will be thoroughly shocked. As I said, I was only half right. I fell for part of the trap and it takes talent to get me to fall for a trap. Furthermore, I thought this book was written by a man because the military details were presented so perfectly. Who’s a female veteran? DOH! I realize that’s an old-fashioned, sexist attitude on my part. Ms. Marshall did her homework, as evidenced by the list of people who helped her keep the book believable in the acknowledgments at the end. Anyone who follows this blog knows how important believability is to this reviewer. Bravo Ms. Marshall. Or should I say “Hoo Yah!”? I definitely recommend Chain of Command.”

      “Ilana Mercer calls her book ‘a labor of love to my homelands, old and new.’ The old is South Africa, which the author left in 1995. The new is the U.S.A. In both nations the founding European stock yielded up their dominance in the interests of justice and liberty. Instead of moving to equal citizenship under fair laws, however, both nations - in different style and measure but with similarly dire results - have embraced official tribalism (‘multiculturalism’) and state-enforced racial favoritism (‘affirmative action’). For South Africa the transformation has been fatal - brutally so for victims of the nation's swelling social disorder, as Ms. Mercer documents in heartbreaking detail. For the U.S.A. it is not too late to change course. The lesson of South Africa, if widely known, will help to open American eyes. Here is the lesson, in a compelling and important book.”

      $31.95

      With concise and detailed equations and helpful diagrams to guide the non-scientist, Slaying the Sky Dragon: Death of the Greenhouse Gas Theory, does more than simply expose shocking faux climate science. It is a step-by-step guide to how the United Nations, western governments and leading corporations manipulated the infant science of climatology in pursuit of such disparate goals as global green government, an international carbon trading ponzi scheme and the self-aggrandizement of well-placed UN officials and political leaders.

      Toxic Shock Syndrome

      $9.95

      Glen Wilson; the guy we'd all like to be. He has a healthy disregard for social norms, etiquette, or most anything else that would endear him to the people around him. Still, people can't turn away from him because they admire him too much. They take for granted that they can't take anything for granted when it comes to Glen. Read Entire review at Amazon.com

      Twisted Shadow - A Cynical Novel of Politics

      $11.95

      Glen Wilson. Where to start describing such a character ? He's controversial , misogynist , dysfunctional gentle ogre , bigger than life character you love to hate and hate to love. Emotionally and physically scarred Glen is so well sketched in the body of Mr. Coffman's work that I found myself regarding him as a real , flesh and blood person, a man feeding my need to redeem lost souls from self destruction . Read the entire review at Amazon. This is classic Coffman. You will be surprised at how much you learn when you read this series. Coffman either has lived life large, or is well-studied. His books are great fun, revealing an irreverence we all have deep within us.


    • Steel Waters

      Steel Waters

      $4.95

      Mr. Coffman has created a great character in Glen Wilson. The colorful and unique way Glen sees and describes the world (and its inhabitants) is original, genius and comic all at the same time. He is the book, and carries it well. His unique, and often brilliant, problem-solving skills make for a fun ride. Read the entire review at Amazon.

      Glen Wilson is a new, refreshing adventure character who ads a little 'damn the man' bravado to his character line. Touches on some of the things that are happening on the inside of the capitol beltway. Very enjoyable and entertaining...Read the entire review at Amazon.

      The Hockey Stick Illusion

      $13.95

      This is a superb review of the story of the hockeystick, the temperature reconstruction which was supposed to show that late 20th century temperatures were unprecedented for at least 1,000 years and which was highlighted in the third IPCC report in 2001. What Montford does in this book is take us through Steven McIntyre's attempt to reproduce the original result of Michael Mann and the controversy that followed. His account is very well written and it reads like a detective story. Read the entire review of The Hockey Stick Illusion on Amazon.


    • Exchange

      Exchange

      $9.95

      Exchange starts with a seemingly ‘normal’ disaster. Sharon Mack, an average citizen (or at least she seems so at the beginning of the book) is conscripted by the military to help other citizens deal with the situation. The military is well-practiced, and as the story first unfolds, we understand why: a sphere-shaped piece of our world has suddenly switched places with an alternate reality.

      After making it through the whole book, I was really very attached to the concepts and story itself. The characters were lively, I cared how it all turned out, and as the final pages came to fruition, I full expected a sequel to be in process.

      One of the best things about Dale Cozort's Exchange is the interesting blend of genres. His remarkable facility and affinity for alternate history shine in this work, as well as the sci-fi hints, and the romantic elements as well.

      I was pleasantly surprised by this novel. While there were elements about the main character that made her a little unbelieveable, all in all the novel was an enjoyable read.

      This plot is excellent. While the idea of modern man ending up in the wilds with the likes of saber tooth tigers, dinosaurs, and other ancient creatures, is not new, the reason for this in Exchange is unique. The set up of the swap and how it fits into later parts of the plot make quite a story.
      Exchange is very interesting and I recommended to anyone who likes a general science fiction action story with a spot of romance.

      I'm an analog design engineer with over 20 years of experience in industry. I want to add FPGA's to my bag of tricks, and I ran across Mr. Coffman's book via a search with Google. My book arrived a week ago and I am finding it to be just the kind of book I have been looking for. Read the entire review on Amazon

      When I started reading this book, I was excited about its potential. Written by an engineer, it did not focus on the language, but on real world engineering issues (how about an HDL design book that talks about robustness, metastability, etc. on its first pages?).

      A number of very talented female conservative/libertarian columnists have burst onto the scene in recent years, but most of them seem to have turned into mere apologists for the Republican Party. Republicans Good, Democrats Bad is the preditable theme of nearly every column. Read the rest of the review at Amazon

      Ilana Mercer's intelligent and courageous book BROADSIDES gracefully demonstrates to readers how important are the principles of the right to one's life, liberty, and property -- and how the violation of these principles causes suffering to the innocent, while benefiting the guilty. Most people agree that they must earn their living, that they should not rob or steal another's living - Read the rest of the review at Amazon
