Books Description:

#1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci returns with his most breathtaking thriller yet! Will Robie and Jessica Reel are two of the most lethal people alive. They're the ones the government calls in when the utmost secrecy is required to take out those who plot violence and mass destruction against the United States. And through every mission, one man has always had their backs: their handler, code-named Blue Man. But now, Blue Man is missing. Last seen in rural Colorado, Blue Man had taken a rare vacation to go fly fishing in his hometown when he disappeared off the grid. With no communications since, the team can't help but fear the worst. Sent to investigate, Robie and Reel arrive in the small town of Grand to discover that it has its own share of problems. A stagnant local economy and a woefully understaffed police force have made this small community a magnet for crime, drugs, and a growing number of militant fringe groups. But lying in wait in Grand is an even more insidious and sweeping threat, one that may shake the very foundations of America. And when Robie and Reel find themselves up against an adversary with superior firepower and a home-court advantage, they'll be lucky if they make it out alive, with or without Blue Man . . . INCREDIBLE PRAISE FOR DAVID BALDACCI'S #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING WILL ROBIE SERIES: "Fast-paced entertainment at its best." --Florida Times-Union "Robie and Reel are complex characters, and anything they do is a pleasure to follow...Baldacci knows how to get readers to turn the pages." --Associated Press "David Baldacci has never been better than in The Guilty. His latest to feature conflicted assassin extraordinaire Will Robie takes the character--and series--to new heights....A stunning success from one of America's great literary talents." --Providence Sunday Journal on The Guilty "A first-class thriller...David Baldacci's four bestselling novels about government assassin Will Robie have straddled that line of edgy, high-concept suspense, augmented with a bit of the political thriller, and deep character studies." --Sun-Sentinel (FL) on The Guilty "With a lightning pace, captivating characters, and astonishing twists throughout, The Hit is guaranteed to keep your attention from the first page to the last." --The Times-News (NC) on The Hit

Books Description:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Who was Bobby Fischer? In this “nuanced perspective of the chess genius” (Los Angeles Times), an acclaimed biographer chronicles his meteoric rise and confounding fall, with an afterword containing newly discovered details about Fischer’s life. Possessing an IQ of 181 and remarkable powers of concentration, Bobby Fischer memorized hundreds of chess books in several languages, and he was only thirteen when he became the youngest chess master in U.S. history. But his strange behavior started early. In 1972, at the historic Cold War showdown in Reykjavik, Iceland, where he faced Soviet champion Boris Spassky, Fischer made headlines with hundreds of petty demands that nearly ended the competition. It was merely a prelude to what was to come. Arriving back in the United States to a hero’s welcome, Bobby was mobbed wherever he went—a figure as exotic and improbable as any American pop culture had yet produced. Commercial sponsorship offers poured in, ultimately topping $10 million—but Bobby demurred. Instead, he began tithing his limited money to an apocalyptic religion and devouring anti-Semitic literature. Bobby reemerged in 1992 to play Spassky in a multi-million dollar rematch—but when the dust settled, he was a wanted man, transformed into an international fugitive because of his decision to play in Montenegro despite U.S. sanctions. Fearing for his life, traveling with bodyguards, Bobby lived the life of a celebrity fugitive—one drawn increasingly to the bizarre. Drawing from Fischer family archives, recently released FBI files, and Bobby’s own emails, Endgame is unique in that it limns Bobby Fischer’s entire life—an odyssey that took the chess champion from an impoverished childhood to the covers of Time, Life and Newsweek to recognition as “the most famous man in the world” to notorious recluse.

Rewrites the rules of commerce by pursuing outcomes rather than products; the seventh book in the Management on the Cutting Edge series comes from a definitive source--the MIT Sloan Management Review. Would you rather pay for healthcare or for better health? For school or education? For groceries or nutrition? A car or transportation? A theater performance or entertainment? In The Ends Game, Marco Bertini and Oded Koenigsberg describe how some firms are rewriting the rules of commerce: instead of selling the "means" (their products and services), they adopt innovative revenue models to pursue "ends" (actual outcomes). They show that paying by the pill, semester, food item, vehicle, or show does not necessarily reflect the value that customers actually derive from their purchases. Revenue models anchored on the ownership of products, they argue, are patently inferior.

Jon voted for the first time in 2004 at the age of 52 after his father died 7 months before 9/11 in 2001, which in Jon’s opinion would have killed him if he had made it those extra 7 months anyway! What ignited the flame under Jon’s political fired up ass was seeing a Senator from Chicago who was being considered to run for the Presidency being shown rubbing elbows with Reverend 'God Damn America'' Wright and Jon’s generation's 'Weather Underground' Bomber William 'Bill' Ayers who over the years had become a community planner like Barack Obama in Chicago, but the Mainstream Media never informed their viewers of this very important fact about Bill Ayres past, and couldn’t understand how that could have possibly been missed! Bottom line though is that was the exact moment Jon got up off the couch and started his quest to understand and monitor the goings on within today's American politics, and what the impact was on America and the American people then and today when this kind of information is kept from the American People!
