Great New Books

Tesla by Richard Munson

Nikola Tesla, Edison’s contemporary, is often deemed by today’s scientists and engineers as the greater prodigy. In this celebratory, comprehensive profile of Tesla, Munson turns the spotlight onto the inventor’s inner world, tracing the roots of Tesla’s uncanny resourcefulness to his early life. This is an insightful addition to the legacy of this still underappreciated visionary genius.

Ruthless Tide by Al Roker

The winner of 13 Emmys, Roker returns to the topic of the Johnstown flood 0f 1889 where more than 2200 people were killed in what remains the deadliest flood in U.S. history.

The Outsider by Stephen King

When a young boy’s mutilated corpse is found in a public park, the evidence points to Little League coach and high school English teacher Terry Maitland. Despite his vehement claims of innocence, witnesses put him at the scene of the crime, and his fingerprints and DNA are found all over the murder scene. Another fly off the shelf thriller from this horror master.

The Restless Wave by John McCain

In this candid political memoir, an American hero reflects on his life and what matters most. Written while confronting a mortal illness, McCain looks back on his years in the Senate, his historic 2008 campaign for the presidency and his crusades on behalf of democracy and human rights in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. At the same time, he offers a positive vision of America that looks beyond the Trump presidency.

Clapper considers such controversial questions as, Is intelligence ethical? Is it moral to intercept communications or to photograph closed societies from orbit? What are the limits of what we should be allowed to do?

Garlic slows cell damage, reduces blood pressure and helps prevent hardening of the arteries. It also contains compounds that help fight off colds and other infections and probably cuts the risk of developing colorectal cancer. Parsnips packs a day’s worth of fiber in a cup-size serving which reduces total and LDL “bad” cholesterol levels. Also packed with potassium to protect against high blood pressure. To be continued…
