Pants on Fire - , Preview:

Katie Ellison is not a liar. It's just that telling the truth is so . . . tricky. She knows she shouldn't be making out with a drama club hottie behind her football-player boyfriend's back. She should probably admit that she can't stand eating quahogs (clams), especially since she's running for Quahog Princess in her hometown's annual Quahog Festival. And it would be a relief to finally tell someone what really happened the night Tommy Sullivan is a freak was spray-painted on the new wall outside the junior high school gymnasium—in neon orange, which still hasn't been sandblasted off. After all, everyone knows that's what drove Tommy out of town four years ago. But now Tommy Sullivan has come back. Katie is sure he's out for revenge, and she'll do anything to hang on to her perfect (if slightly dishonest) existence. Even if it means telling more lies than ever. Even if, now that Tommy's around, she's actually—no lie—having the time of her life..

Ten years later, Prohibition is in full swing, post-WWI America is in the grips of rampant xenophobia, and Bea's hopes for her future remain unfulfilled. She returns to her uncle’s house, seeking a refuge from her unhappiness.

Pants on Fire - Paul Christopherson Preview:

Pants on Fire explores the lies that govern America—why people go along with them and what it costs to do so. It reveals the plutocracy that benefits and examines what needs to be done to bring back a true democracy. It’s no secret: The wealthy demand—and get—what they want from the system at the expense of everyone else. Seven key lies advance their agenda: The way to grow the economy is to stimulate the people at the top. Loose money is another way to grow the economy. The stock market is the best investment and the best economic indicator. Executive compensation is tied to performance. Regulation is bad; deregulation is good. Bailing out Wall Street was necessary to preserve the system. The health care question is about who pays. These claims are driving the biggest economic crisis in modern history, and producing a society ready to explode with anger. Provocative and sometimes funny, Pants on Fire looks past the individual problems to the eventual, necessary solution..

The Capture of Rafael Ortega - Joel Edward Stein Preview:

Rafael Ortega leads a quiet, uneventful life in the port town of Cádiz, but danger is never far from sight. The Spanish Inquisition looms over Spain with watchful eyes, waiting for any sign of heresy, and press gangs roam the coast looking for vulnerable young men to kidnap into servitude. For a Jewish boy like Rafael, whose family’s faith is itself a dangerous secret, the question is less of if, but of when. It is on one fateful morning that the clock runs out: news of religious Inquisitors at Rafael’s doorstep sends him rushing home in fear for his family. While risking a shortcut through the seedy backstreets of town, he is ambushed. The next thing he knows, he’s been bound, stuffed into a wagon, and smuggled aboard a ship. Her name is El Albatros, and Rafael is now an unwilling member of her crew. Unaware of the fate of his family, Rafael finds himself in uncharted territory—at the mercy of El Albatros and the whims of the men on board as she journeys across the ocean to the New World. It is a voyage that will take them straight into the pirate-infested waters of the Caribbean, and Rafael, headed for the far side of the known world, can only hope he will make it out alive..

The Despot's Apprentice - Brian Klaas Preview:

”[A] primer on the threat to democracy posed by—and I can’t believe I’m saying this—the current president of the United States.” —David Litt, New York Times bestselling author Donald Trump isn’t a despot. But he is increasingly acting like The Despot’s Apprentice, an understudy in authoritarian tactics that threaten to erode American democracy, including: Attacking the press Threatening rule of law by firing those who investigate his alleged wrongdoings Using nepotism to staff the White House and countless other techniques Donald Trump is borrowing tactics from the world’s dictators and despots. Trump’s fascination with the military, his obsession with his own cult of personality, and his deliberate campaign to blur the line between fact and falsehood are nothing new to the world of despots. But they are new to the United States. With each authoritarian tactic or tweet, Trump poses a unique threat to democratic government in the world’s most powerful democracy. At the same time, Trump’s apprenticeship has serious consequences beyond the United States. His bizarre adoration and idolization of despotic strongmen—from Russia’s Putin, to Turkey’s Erdogan, or to the Philippines’ Duterte—has transformed American foreign policy into a powerful cheerleader for some of the world’s worst regimes. In The Despot’s Apprentice, an ex-US campaign advisor who has sat with the world’s dictators explains Donald Trump’s increasingly authoritarian tactics and how Trump uniquely threatens American democracy... and how to save it from him..

Rock, Paper, Scissors - Len Fisher Preview:

Praised by Entertainment Weekly as “the man who put the fizz into physics,” Dr. Len Fisher turns his attention to the science of cooperation in his lively and thought-provoking book. Fisher shows how the modern science of game theory has helped biologists to understand the evolution of cooperation in nature, and investigates how we might apply those lessons to our own society. In a series of experiments that take him from the polite confines of an English dinner party to crowded supermarkets, congested Indian roads, and the wilds of outback Australia, not to mention baseball strategies and the intricacies of quantum mechanics, Fisher sheds light on the problem of global cooperation. The outcomes are sometimes hilarious, sometimes alarming, but always revealing. A witty romp through a serious science, Rock, Paper, Scissors will both teach and delight anyone interested in what it what it takes to get people to work together..
