|At Gunpoint by Dr. Rahn Kennedy Bailey
One doctor takes a stand on firearm violence.”I have a great appreciation for the research presented by Dr. Rahn Bailey and his colleagues in the medical community. This anthology offers specific information that is unique to the concerns of gun violence. Firearms and gun violence in America have been at critical points of discussion for decades and this book challenges us to find solutions to this problem. Dr. Bailey and his colleagues offer a clinical medical perspective on gun violence and consider it a ‘health crisis.’ I was particularly drawn to a statement in the book that stood out for me: ‘We have a social responsibility to optimize the management, audit the outcome, and where possible, prevent the damage.’ As a member of the North Carolina Legislature, I find this medical view of gun violence to be a tremendous challenge that should be taken seriously.” – State Senator Paul A. Lowe, Jr. North Carolina District 32

|Purpose: A Shift by Joy E. Mason
In this book, author Joy E. Mason demonstrates how not to look in a distorted mirror for answers, not to be hijacked by our past, not to practice off-purpose thinking and self-grievance and more. She uses personal experiences, like joining a risky lawsuit and dealing with the reality of a brain tumor, as well as lessons of the spiritual leaders who guided her on her journey, to show how her perspective on a purpose-driven life changed over time and how that change led her to the peaceful space she’s in today. Warm, real, and relatable, this down-to-earth book is a practical roadmap to a more fulfilling way to be in the world.
|What She Feels by Chidozie Osuwa
Dealing with love is never easy or straightforward, especially when it comes to prose and poetry, but Chidozie Osuwa handles this subject with a light touch and all of the grace of an artist sensitive to the complexities of experience. Hers is the heart of experience, and her language reflects the maturity of thought and wisdom gleaned from a lifetime of inquiry, exploration, and yes-the scars of heartbreak. Osuwa’s collection of poems avoids clichés and seizes upon fresh images, captivating readers everywhere and keeping this book in the Top 10.
|Capitol Hill’s Criminal Underground by Richard Lawless
Perhaps one of the most thorough explorations of government corruption ever put in writing, this non-fiction account investigates the theft of trillions of U.S. dollars – money laundered in countries that are hostile to the United States. The ratings agencies, the banks and our politicians are funding anti-American activity against their own people. The FBI refuses to investigate, the U.S. Attorneys refuse to prosecute, and the Securities and Exchange Commission refuses to protect the public. With enough evidence to investigate and prosecute over one thousand high-ranking government employees, bankers, and politicians, Capitol Hill’s Criminal Underground will show that the level of arrogance and contempt our political leaders hold for the American people is boundless.
|Legends of Beer-League Hockey by Curt Lesnau
