REVIEW: Privacy is becoming an antiquated concept. In "Data and Goliath: The Hidden Battles to Collect Your Data and Control Your World" (ISBN: 9780393244816), security expert Bruce Schneier leads you through a labyrinth of surveillance that should scare the hell out of you.
BOOK REVIEW: Considering the filth-in-human-form known as Roger Ailes, the despicable lead character in "The Loudest Voice in the Room: How the Brilliant, Bombastic Roger Ailes Built Fox News -- and Divided a Country" (ISBN: 978-0-8129-9285-4), you might expect to come away from each chapter feeling demeaned. Instead, author Gabriel Sherman just leaves you shaking your head in shock and shame.
BOOK REVIEW: Was FDR a great president or the greatest president? That's one of the questions dealt with by Conrad Black in his lengthy (500,000+ words) biography of FDR -- “Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Champion of Freedom” (ISBN: 978158648184) -- a man who even today is known just by his initials.
BOOK REVIEW: Perhaps nothing could have lived up to the anticipation for Malcolm Gladwell's new book but unfortunately "David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants" (ISBN: 9780316204361) is limp, frivolous, a little silly, and unnecessary. The only saving grace is that it is written with a fluid style so it won't take you too long to read.
BOOK REVIEW: How often is there a media brouhaha over a book about fairy tales? RWNJs are offended by Reza Aslan's 'Zealot' but they should be pleased that it will be one of the least-read bestsellers ever.
PETERSBURG, Va. /Publishers Newswire/ -- In 'Education Behind Bars' (ISBN: 978-1934597774; Sunbury Press) author Christopher Zoukis makes the case for why all Americans should support education in our prison system. Most Americans don't realize that the United States could save upwards of $60 billion each year by simply educating prisoners. 'Why should the American taxpayer care about people who are incarcerated in our prison system? Simple, it is a true cost-saving measure that should be discussed,' says the author.
