Me the People: One Man’s Selfless Quest to Rewrite the Constitution of the United States of America – $1.99 0 comments

The United States Constitution promised a More Perfect Union. It’s a shame no one bothered to write a more perfect Constitution—one that didn’t trigger more than two centuries of arguments about what the darn thing actually says.
Until now.
Perfection is at hand. A new, improved Constitution is here. And you are holding it.
But first, some historical context: In the eighteenth century, a lawyer named James Madison gathered his friends in Philadelphia and, over four long months, wrote four short pages: the Constitution of the United States of America. Not bad.
So prepare yourselves, fellow patriots, for the most significant literary event of the twenty-first, twentieth, nineteenth, and latter part of the eighteenth centuries. Me the People won’t just form a More Perfect Union. It will save America.

Reagan’s Revolution: The Untold Story of the Campaign That Started It All – $1.99 0 comments

Today’s political scene looks nothing like it did thirty years ago, and that is due mostly to Reagan’s monumental reshaping of the Republican party. What few people realize, however, is that Reagan’s revolution did not begin when he took office in 1980, but in his failed presidential challenge to Gerald Ford in 1975-1976.
This is the remarkable story of that historic campaign-one that, as Reagan put it, turned a party of “pale pastels” into a national party of “bold colors.”
Featuring interviews with a myriad of politicos, journalists, insiders, and observers, Craig Shirley relays intriguing, never-before-told anecdotes about Reagan, his staff, the campaign, the media, and the national parties and shows how Reagan, instead of following the lead of the ever-weakening Republican party, brought the party to him and almost single-handedly revived it.

The Girl with Seven Names: A North Korean Defector’s Story – $1.99 0 comments

As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee was one of millions trapped by a secretive and brutal communist regime. Her home on the border with China gave her some exposure to the world beyond the confines of the Hermit Kingdom and, as the famine of the 1990s struck, she began to wonder, question and to realise that she had been brainwashed her entire life. Given the repression, poverty and starvation she witnessed surely her country could not be, as she had been told “the best on the planet”?
Aged seventeen, she decided to escape North Korea. She could not have imagined that it would be twelve years before she was reunited with her family.
This is the unique story not only of Hyeonseo’s escape from the darkness into the light, but also of her coming of age, education and the resolve she found to rebuild her life – not once, but twice – first in China, then in South Korea. Strong, brave and eloquent, this memoir is a triumph of her remarkable spirit. Buy it today for $1.99.

Ronnie and Nancy: Their Path to the White House–1911 to 1980 – Just 99 cents 0 comments

Ronnie and Nancy: he was born in modest circumstances in rural Illinois; she grew up in an enclave of Chicago in an atmosphere of privilege and high expectation.

In researching this book, which has been six years in the writing, Bob Colacello has spent thousands of hours interviewing Nancy Regan as well as hundreds of Reagan intimates. This is a monumental work. Buy it today for only 99 cents.
