From the author of the New York Times best seller Jack Kennedy - and Tip O'Neill’s former chief-of-staff - comes the firsthand, one-of-a-kind story of the friendship between President Reagan and the Speaker of the House. They were the political odd couple - the two most powerful men in the country, a pair who, in author Chris Matthews' words, "couldn't be more different or more the same." For six years, Matthews was on the inside, watching the evolving relationship between President Ronald Reagan and Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill. Their philosophies were miles apart - Reagan intent on scaling back government, O'Neill fervent in defending it. Yet there was common ground too: long lunches shared on St. Patrick’s Day and a mutual respect - political and personal. Three days after Reagan’s shooting, Tip was the first outsider at the president’s bedside. Drawing not only on his own remarkable knowledge but on extensive interviews with those closest to his subjects, Matthews brings this unlikely friendship to life in his unique voice, rendering as lively and novelistic a listen as Jack Kennedy and a timely object lesson in how bipartisan cooperation can work. 1.

Politics makes for strange bedfellows, the old saying goes. Americans, however, often forget the obvious lesson underlying this adage: politics is about winning elections and governing once in office. Voters of all stripes seem put off by the rough-and-tumble horse-trading and deal-making of politics, viewing its practitioners as self-serving and without principle or conviction.Because of these perspectives, the scholarly and popular narrative of American politics has come to focus on ideology over all else. But as Donald T. Critchlow demonstrates in his riveting new book, this obsession obscures the important role of temperament, character, and leadership ability in political success. Critchlow looks at four leading Republican presidential contenders - Richard Nixon, Nelson Rockefeller, Barry Goldwater, and Ronald Reagan - to show that, behind the scenes, ideology mattered less than principled pragmatism and the ability to build coalitions toward electoral and legislative victory.Drawing on new archival material, Critchlow lifts the curtain on the lives of these political rivals and what went on behind the scenes of their campaigns. He reveals unusual relationships between these men: Nixon making deals with Rockefeller, while Rockefeller courted Goldwater and Reagan, who themselves became political rivals despite their shared conservatism. The result is a book sure to fascinate anyone wondering what it takes to win the presidency of the United States - and to govern effectively.The book is published by University of Pennsylvania Press. The audiobook is published by University Press Audiobooks."A compact and illuminating history...."

It is a heroic story of pride and passion you will never forget....

A German named Tillmann is vacationing in the States with his girlfriend and corresponding with an African American colleague about the evolution of blues music. Over the course of the season, the trio’s discussions range from Mariah Carey to Ronald Reagan, from the Black Power movement to Nazi Germany. And as a hurricane churns across the Atlantic, their exploration of how ethnicity, race, and gender are defined — particularly for America’s African and Jewish diasporas — will culminate in revelations about their own ethnic identities. Thomas Meinecke’s groundbreaking writing style is on full display in Pale Blue, as the writer-DJ has crafted his insightful novel with the same uncanny skill with which jazz and blues musicians create their improvisational styles. 9781455880560 N N ©2012 Thomas Meinecke;(P)2012 Brilliance Audio, Inc. http://www.audible.de/pd/B008RO4QAG?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true http://www.audible.de/pd/B008RO4QAG?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true Devil Said Bang: Sandman Slim, Book 4 (Unabridged) 30.95 AVAILABLE Devil Said Bang: Sandman Slim, Book 4 (Unabridged) Devil Said Bang (Unabridged) Richard Kadrey What do you do after you’ve escaped Hell, gone back, uncovered the true nature of God, and then managed to become the new Lucifer?

Well, if you’re James Stark, you have to figure out how to run Hell while also trying to get back out of it... again. Plus there’s the small matter of surviving. Because everyone in Heaven, Hell, and in between wants to be the fastest gun in the universe, and the best way to do so is to take down Lucifer, a.k.a. James Stark. And it’s not like being in L.A. is any better — a serial-killer ghost is running wild and Stark’s angelic alter ego is hiding among the lost days of time with a secret cabal who can rewrite reality. Starting to care for people and life again is a real bitch for a stone-cold killer. 9781469207957 N N ©2012 Richard Kadrey;(P)2012 Brilliance Audio, Inc. http://www.audible.de/pd/B008X9FJOM?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true http://www.audible.de/pd/B008X9FJOM?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true An Apple for the Creature (Unabridged) 30.95 AVAILABLE An Apple for the Creature (Unabridged) An Apple for the Creature (Unabridged) Charlaine Harris (editor), Toni L.

Col. Ray 'Frenchy' L'Heureux always dreamed of bring a pilot. Growing up, he built airplane models and dreamed about soaring over the earth. When he was twelve, his mom treated him to a flying lesson at the local airfield. Taken on a short flight by an instructor and allowed to operate the controls for part of the flight, he was hooked forever. It wasn't until he was running low on college funds and saw a recruiter at his college that he joined the Marines and began the journey towards his dream from Parris Island to Bravo Company and, then, officer training school. One day at an airfield when President Reagan landed on this way to a fundraiser, Frenchy's life changed forever when encountered HMX1, the squadron that flies the President in Marine One. When he saw the white-topped Sea King and White Hawk helicopters, he was determined to become part of that elite group. Inside Marine One is Col. L'Heureux's inspiring story of a young man who dreamed of flying, trained, studied and worked hard to become the pilot who ended up serving four US Presidents - George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. It's also a personal guided tour inside the world's most famous helicopter by a man who knows that flying machine better than any other. Inside Marine One is a great American success story of a young boy who dreamed big, worked hard and finally flew the President of the United States as his number one passenger.
