    How to weed out factual from fake news by the author of Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism.   In the last few years, the journalism industry has cut costs by eliminating important safeguards: companies have reduced the number of fact-checkers, editors, and journalists. What this means is that editors and reporters cannot spend time verifying information. Moreover, journalists are not required to have professional experience or training to cover their beats. Fierce competition to get a scoop may lead to journalists making careless errors or not double-checking information.   To maintain audiences and readership, journalists, editors and producers will choose sensational stories that “shock.” Combined with time and budget constraints, journalists may unwittingly or deliberately disseminate false or misleading information to the public. It is important to get a story, interview a subject or nab a scoop first—the accuracy of these elements is secondary. Competition from other media outlets also means the goal of a journalist is to get the scoop first—how it makes it on the air (flawed, inaccurate, questionably obtained) is unimportant.   In Don’t Believe It!, Alexandra Kitty demonstrates with example upon example how manufactured news is endemic in our media and shows the reader how to spot suspicious stories and evaluate sources, eyewitnesses and data. This is a comprehensive bible to information verification from a logical standpoint, showing how to be skeptical without being jaded, step by step, with case studies and a classification manual.

    One of the most perilous moments in American history was the transitioning from President Donald Trump to President Joe Biden. 
    But, as #1 New York Times bestselling author Bob Woodward and renowned journalist Robert Costa disclose in Peril (2021), it was far more than a national political crisis. This study takes readers deep into the Trump White House, the Biden White House, the 2020 election, the Pentagon, and Congress, with vivid, firsthand descriptions of what transpired. Peril is reinforced throughout by never-before-seen information from secret instructions, transcripts of phone calls, journals, emails, meeting minutes, and other personal and government data, resulting in an unprecedented historical account. 
    The remarkable story of the end of one presidency and the start of another is told in Peril.

    The Library of the World's Best Literature, Ancient and Modern, is a work of enormous proportions. Setting out with the simple goal of offering "American households a mass of good reading", the editors drew from literature of all times and all kinds what they considered the best pieces of human writing, and compiled an ambitious collection of 45 volumes (with a 46th being an index-guide). Besides the selection and translation of a huge number of poems, letters, short stories and sections of books, the collection offers, before each chapter, a short essay about the author or subject in question. In many cases, chapters contemplate not one author, but certain groups of works, organized by nationality, subject or period; there is, thus, a chapter on Accadian-Babylonian literature, one on the Holy Grail, and one on Chansons, for example.The result is a collection that holds the interest, for the variety of subjects and forms, but also as a means of first contact with such famous and important authors that many people have heard of, but never read, such as Abelard, Dante or Lord Byron. According to the editor Charles Dudley Warner, this collection "is not a library of reference only, but a library to be read."This fifth volume contains chapters from "Bismarck" to "Brandt".

    Experience World War II from the perspective of a married couple in this collection of letters exchanged between an American serviceman and his wife. During World War II, the millions of letters American servicemen exchanged with their wives and sweethearts were a lifeline, a vital way of sustaining morale on both fronts. Intimate and poignant, Miss You offers a rich selection from the correspondence of one such couple, revealing their longings, affection, hopes, and fears and affording a privileged look at how ordinary people lived through the upheavals of the last century’s greatest conflict.“In Fairburn, Georgia, when I was growing up, everyone knew them simply as “CharlieandBarbara,” one word―for they seemed almost uncannily close, a single unit of harmony, two parts of a whole. Now everyone who reads this extraordinary document of love in a time of war will feel the power of that closeness. Miss You is the quintessential American chronicle…. Read and cherish it―there are none of us who wouldn’t have chosen for ourselves such a love as this.”—Anne Rivers Siddons, New York Times–bestselling author of Peachtree Road “A volume that offers extraordinary insight into the daily experiences of Americans at war.”—Georgia Historical Quarterly “Their great love―the connecting theme of this wonderful book―is something so rare it is both beautiful and ennobling.”—Atlanta Journal-Constitution “It is the insight gained by reading these letters that make this book exceptional…. By the book’s close, the reader has gained an intimate and truthful understanding of wartime psyche and feels deeply how crucial these letters were to those they were comforting.”—Hannah M. Jocelyn, Southern Historian

    My Secret Life, the anonymously written erotic memoirs of a Victorian English gentleman who refers to himself simply as 'Walter' is one of the most idiosyncratic and sexually obsessed books ever written. In this vast autobiographical confessional the author recounts, in meticulous detail, his sexual exploits throughout the course of a life devoted entirely to the pursuit of carnal pleasure. Through this compelling exploration of the author's sexual behavior we are left with a uniquely entertaining insight into life behind the closed doors of Victorian society. My Secret Life is evocative, provocative, sorrowful, suspenseful, obscene, exciting and highly erotic...in it we are privy to the thoughts, emotions and memories of one of the most unusual, unsung and colorful English eccentrics of the Victorian era. 
    Now, for the first time, the complete unabridged version of this unique text is being narrated and scored by film composer Dominic Crawford Collins as an 'audiofilm' (an audiobook in which the emotional landscape is explored through the music score). Each chapter of My Secret Life will be released at monthly intervals over the next ten or so years culminating in what is likely to become the longest audio book ever to be produced.
