A Higher Call By Adam Makos with Larry Alexander

A Higher Call
This book is probably unlike any you have read about the Second World War. It combines the stories of two men–– a young American B-17 pilot and a seasoned German fighter pilot –– with some big slices of World War II history. But it is the two pilots, united by a common humanity, who capture and keep readers’ interest. Read the book before the movie comes out.Read the review »

By The People by Charles Murray

By The People by Charles Murray
Murray's book is interesting, if depressing. By The People lays out a strategic plan that might just strike terror into the hearts of bureaucrats if it comes to fruition. An honest reader, with an open mind, should see the truth in much of what Murray says. The book will resonate most strongly with those of a libertarian bent and is not necessarily geared to conservatives. Murray tries to present an honest appraisal of the state of government and a practical strategy for fixing some of the issues before us. As he says throughout, we can never go back, but he thinks he has a way forward which at least ensures our survival.Read the review »
