    A fascinating overview of the Allies’ post-WWII program to gain access to advanced Nazi war machines and the technology they ultimately recovered.    Prior to the Allied D-Day assault on Normandy, France, rumors had already been circulating that high-tech Nazi super-weapons (wunderwaffe) had reached or were near completion. At the war’s end, a mad scramble ensued to discover the enemy’s secrets, fueled in large part by a US desire to regain its technological edge and to keep these weapons out of Soviet hands. Operation Lusty (LUftwaffe Secret TechnologY) was in full swing.   In Operation Lusty, aviation historian Graham M. Simons delivers a comprehensive and detailed history of the program while cataloging the advanced war equipment that was ultimately discovered—from U-boats, carriers, and battleships to radar equipment and operating systems, to fighters, bombers, rockets, and other V-weapons. With access to previously unreleased documentation and wide-ranging archival materials, Simons distinguishes what was fact in the Nazi arsenal from what was pure fantasy, dreamed up by Joseph Goebbels’s powerful propaganda machine.  Operation Lusty sheds new light on the furious race for postwar technological superiority, and offers an insider’s look at the full spectrum of military spoils that were gained.

    The author of Media Today offers “a trenchant, timely, and troubling account of [retailers’] data-mining, in-store tracking, and predictive analytics” (The Philadelphia Inquirer).   By one expert’s prediction, within twenty years half of Americans will have body implants that tell retailers how they feel about specific products as they browse their local stores. The notion may be outlandish, but it reflects executives’ drive to understand shoppers in the aisles with the same obsessive detail that they track us online. In fact, a hidden surveillance revolution is already taking place inside brick-and-mortar stores, where Americans still do most of their buying.   Drawing on his interviews with retail executives, analysis of trade publications, and experiences at insider industry meetings, advertising and digital studies expert Joseph Turow pulls back the curtain on these trends, showing how a new hyper-competitive generation of merchants—including Macy’s, Target, and Walmart—is already using data mining, in-store tracking, and predictive analytics to change the way we buy, undermine our privacy, and define our reputations. Eye-opening and timely, Turow’s book is essential reading to understand the future of shopping.   “Turow shows shopping today to be an exercise in unwitting self-revelation—and not only online.”—The Wall Street Journal   “Thoroughly researched and clearly presented with detailed evidence and fascinating peeks inside the retail industry. Much of this information is startling and even chilling, particularly when Turow shows how retail data-tracking can enable discrimination and societal stratification.”—Publishers Weekly   “Revealing . . . Valuable reading for shoppers and retailers alike.”—Kirkus Reviews

    “A real find. Not a how-to manual or step-by-step action plan, it instead offers an unyielding glimpse into the hearts, minds and behaviors of seniors.” —Marilee Driscoll, author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Long-Term Care Planning   This collection of vignettes addresses senior concerns and how their adult children address those concerns. Read stories about real people and real events, and how they relate to the aging process.   “Sue Cunningham has written a little gem of a book that is both insightful and practical. Drawing on her years of experience working with the children of aging parents, she has collected a series of pithy stories and observations that simultaneously inspire and educate. Unwrapping the Sandwich Generation is a recommended read for professionals and children of elders alike!” —John Paul Marosy, president, Bringing Elder Care Home LLC, MA   “Not a ‘how to’ book, but rather real life, relatable stories that provide a glimpse into what it’s like to be part of the sandwich generation.” —CareGivers.com, “9 Sanity Saving Resources for Sandwich Generation Month”   “Unwrapping the Sandwich Generation should be a bit of required reading for counselors of seniors who want to be knowledgeable of and familiar with all the things that are happening to the aging population. A must read for children of aging parents who are becoming more dependent than they want to become. A ‘coffee table’ tome for continuing care centers where we now allow our parents to reside, this book will be in use for some time to come for it is us.” —Fred L. Adair, PhD, LPC, NCC, Professor Emeritus, The College of William and Mary
