Détails: The incredible true story of the PI Moms scam and the small-time reporter who exposed it: “A jaw-dropping tale of ambition, crime, and reality TV” (Ira Glass, host of NPR’s This American Life). In 2010, an unbelievable story came across the desk of Diablo magazine lifestyle reporter Pete Crooks. The pitch went like this: Retired cop Chris Butler ran a private investigation firm in Concord, California, staffed entirely by soccer moms. Sexy and smart, these women were the real-life Charlie’s Angels—trained in investigation, self-defense, and weaponry. Butler and his PI Moms had already been featured in People magazine and on Dr. Phil. Now Butler’s publicist was offering Crooks an opportunity to ride along with them as they prepared to start filming a reality TV show. But after the ride-along, and a few mysterious emails, Crooks found himself chasing a very different kind of story. It turned out the “sting” he’d witnessed had been an elaborate setup. The more he learned about Butler’s operation, the more Crooks realized he was in far over his head—deep in the underbelly of fraud, police corruption, drug-dealing, and people willing to do anything for fame. “You are going to laugh a lot . . . Only a true noir fan could have done such a bang-up job.” —Beth Lisick, New York Times–bestselling author of Everybody into the Pool

Détails: The rules: no kissing on the mouth, no staying the night, no telling anyone, and above all… No falling in love. Anna Jones just wants to finish college and figure out her life. Falling for star quarterback Drew Baylor is certainly not on her to do list. Confident and charming, he lives in the limelight and is way too gorgeous for his own good. If only she could ignore his heated stares and stop thinking about doing hot and dirty things with him. Easy right? Too bad he’s committed to making her break every rule… Football has been good to Drew. It’s given him recognition, two National Championships, and the Heisman. But what he really craves is sexy yet prickly Anna Jones. Her cutting humor and blatant disregard for his fame turns him on like nothing else. But there’s one problem: she's shut him down. Completely. That is until a chance encounter leads to the hottest sex of their lives, along with the possibility of something great. Unfortunately, Anna wants it to remain a hook up. Now it’s up to Drew to tempt her with more: more sex, more satisfaction, more time with him. Until she’s truly hooked. It's a good thing Drew knows all about winning. All’s fair in love and football…Game on.

Détails: Do you have an employee whose performance keeps deteriorating—despite your close monitoring? Brace yourself: You may be at fault—by unknowingly triggering the set-up-to-fail syndrome. Perhaps things started off swimmingly. But then something--a missed deadline, a lost client—made you question the person's performance. You began micromanaging him. Suspecting your reduced confidence, he started doubting himself—and stopped giving his best. You viewed his new behavior as additional proof of mediocrity, and tightened the screws further. In The Set-Up-to-Fail Syndrome, Jean-Francois Manzoni and Jean-Louis Barsoux show how this insidious cycle hurts everyone: employees stop volunteering ideas, preventing your organization from getting the most from them; you lose energy to attend to other activities; and your reputation suffers as other employees deem you unfair. Team spirit wilts as targeted performers are alienated. But the set-up-to-fail syndrome doesn't have to happen. The authors provide preventive measures, such as loosening the reins as new employees master their jobs. If the syndrome has already erupted, Manzoni and Barsoux explain how to discuss the dynamic with your employee and reverse the cycle.

Détails: Former child actor Paul Petersen once said, “Fame is a dangerous drug and should be kept out of the reach of children.” It is certainly true that many child actors have fallen prey to the dangers of fame and suffered for it later in life, but others have used fame to their advantage and gone on to even more successful careers in adulthood. This work is a compilation of interviews with 39 men and women who, as children, worked in the motion picture industry in Hollywood. They all handled their childhood celebrity differently. Lee Aaker, Mary Badham, Baby Peggy, Sonny Bupp, Ted Donaldson, Edith Fellows, Gary Gray, Jimmy Hunt, Eilene Janssen, Marcia Mae Jones, Sammy McKim, Roger Mobley, Gigi Perreau, Jeanne Russell, Frankie Thomas, Beverly Washburn, Johnny Whitaker, and Jane Withers are among those interviewed. They talk candidly about their experiences on and off the set, the people they worked with, and what they did after their careers ended. The pros and cons of being a child actor and the effects that it had on them later in life are discussed at great length.

Détails: My Story The Setup My story has been partially told so many times to my students and my grandchildren that I realized that I need to just print it. So many people want to know how it was back in the day. I promised myself that I would write it down whenever I got the chance. Well, the cancer treatments allowed me the time to do so. Also, this was a good time because my aunt and brothers and sister are all still alive. They helped to reinforce how I remembered the events. It still hurts to relive the two brothers going off to the Vietnam War and only one getting back alive. Then I realize that my life was already planned, already set up by God. I just needed to follow the plan and continue to be a beacon of light for others to see. I hope that this book might uplift someone else who is struggling with a serious illness and has not realized that we should rejoice in what God is doing in our lives even though we dont understand. Enjoy!

Détails: New York Times bestseller—now a major motion picture directed by and starring James Franco! From the actor who somehow lived through it all, a “sharply detailed…funny book about a cinematic comedy of errors” (The New York Times): the making of the cult film phenomenon The Room. In 2003, an independent film called The Room—starring and written, produced, and directed by a mysteriously wealthy social misfit named Tommy Wiseau—made its disastrous debut in Los Angeles. Described by one reviewer as “like getting stabbed in the head,” the $6 million film earned a grand total of $1,800 at the box office and closed after two weeks. Years later, it’s an international cult phenomenon, whose legions of fans attend screenings featuring costumes, audience rituals, merchandising, and thousands of plastic spoons. Hailed by The Huffington Post as “possibly the most important piece of literature ever printed,” The Disaster Artist is the hilarious, behind-the-scenes story of a deliciously awful cinematic phenomenon as well as the story of an odd and inspiring Hollywood friendship. Actor Greg Sestero, Tommy’s costar and longtime best friend, recounts the film’s bizarre journey to infamy, unraveling mysteries for fans (like, who is Steven? And what’s with that hospital on Guerrero Street?)—as well as the most important question: how the hell did a movie this awful ever get made? But more than just a riotously funny story about cinematic hubris, “The Disaster Artist is one of the most honest books about friendship I’ve read in years” (Los Angeles Times).

Détails: What therefore, is the incentive to create poor people and legislate a means to keep them down? Did I hear you say capitalism? You are right. The status quo must be maintained. Some may not see hypocrisy in this. But, let us think about this rationally. If non-blacks were to empathize (for lack of a better word) with white folks, what will be a reason to discriminate against others and institutionalize racism? Let’s look at a few angles. 1.Hatred? Hatred or hate is a deep emotional and extreme dislike. Such hatred can be directed against certain individuals or groups. To say hatred is the reason to keep non-whites poor will be far-fetched. Even when non-whites were slaves, they had cherished values of—live and let live. Disdain? May be, but definitely, not hatred. 2.Fear? Fear is a phobia. Phobia is the extreme aversion embedded deep in our psyches, activated when we come face-to-face with that which we fear. Some people—mostly non blacks—are afraid of black people. Is it a fear based on facts or a belief that the black man is inherently bad or is it a fear of repercussion emanating from what our grandfathers did to the black man? This angle is worth pursuing but then, it is just a very lethal phobia. 3.Greed? This is more like it. Greed is good for those at the top. Greed is good for the few landowners represented by corporations now. The rich have a need to create an imaginary enemy. They do not want to be seen as the enemy just like the corporations don’t want you to know that they manage the world’s resources for a select few. They hand out some minute resources, here and there to the operators/managers of the corporations, who are the middle class. Thus, the middle class thinks they are buddy-buddy with the landowners. The landowners must provide an incentive so as to maintain a grip at their corporations, so the design is to make the middle class believe that the lower class is at that level because they are lazy and seeking handouts. Were black people lazy during slavery? Did black folks seek handouts during slavery? Of course, they received handouts in shapes of chit lings, pig feet and cow feet. How all of a sudden, blacks became lazy, as soon as slavery was “over”. Can you begin to see the design now? 4.By design? It is a design in plain sight. Many people cannot see it. Those who see it, are incapable to do anything about it because by design, the whole plot has been legislated into law. Just like apartheid, the various governments and departments at many levels justified the discrimination, through laws the oppressed cannot surmount. It was so then and it is so today with little or no legislative modification in sight. Have you ever imagined why the 44th president of United States is having so much problems with the Congress? You think the Congress populated by mostly old white men are giving the black president a tough time because of race? Or, you think they hate the first black president of the union? If you answered yes to any of these questions you are yet to understand the workings of a country, some have christened “God’s own Country”. The fear of a black president undoing four hundred years of discriminative laws, the phobia of taking down the protections of the rich landowners and the enforcers of that protection led to a section of a congress to proclaim from day 1 of the black president’s inauguration: “if Obama wants it, we reject it right off the bat.” This simply means, an opposition to President Obama’s policies on all fronts. Some were not hiding their enthusiasm for an Obama failure, they worked for it. They feared an Obama presidency that might implement programs that would invite non-whites to participate thus engaging in capitalism. Slogans like “take our country back” were dusted up for re-use. It was strategic. They were all noises meant to drown some of Obama’s signature programs like the affordable care act, popularly known as Obamacare. It has always been by design.

Détails: This book is an examination of cultural resistance to segregation in the world of black baseball through an analysis of editorial art, folktales, nicknames, “manhood” and the art of clowning. African Americans worked to dismantle Jim Crow through the creation of a cultural counter-narrative that centered on baseball and the Negro Leagues that celebrated black achievement and that highlighted the contradictions and fallacies of white supremacy in the first half of the twentieth century.

Détails: A haunting examination of groupthink and mass hysteria in a rural community The place is Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692, an enclave of rigid piety huddled on the edge of a wilderness. Its inhabitants believe unquestioningly in their own sanctity. But in Arthur Miller's edgy masterpiece, that very belief will have poisonous consequences when a vengeful teenager accuses a rival of witchcraft—and then when those accusations multiply to consume the entire village. First produced in 1953, at a time when America was convulsed by a new epidemic of witch-hunting, The Crucible brilliantly explores the threshold between individual guilt and mass hysteria, personal spite and collective evil. It is a play that is not only relentlessly suspenseful and vastly moving but that compels readers to fathom their hearts and consciences in ways that only the greatest theater ever can.

Détails: “We Set the Dark on Fire burns bright. It will light the way for a new generation of rebels and lovers.” —NPR “Mejia pens a compelling, gripping story that mirrors real world issues of immigration and equality.” —Buzzfeed Five starred reviews!! In this daring and romantic fantasy debut perfect for fans of The Handmaid’s Tale and Latinx authors Zoraida Córdova and Anna-Marie McLemore, society wife-in-training Dani has a great awakening after being recruited by rebel spies and falling for her biggest rival. At the Medio School for Girls, distinguished young women are trained for one of two roles in their polarized society. Depending on her specialization, a graduate will one day run a husband’s household or raise his children. Both paths promise a life of comfort and luxury, far from the frequent political uprisings of the lower class. Daniela Vargas is the school’s top student, but her pedigree is a lie. She must keep the truth hidden or be sent back to the fringes of society. And school couldn’t prepare her for the difficult choices she must make after graduation, especially when she is asked to spy for a resistance group desperately fighting to bring equality to Medio. Will Dani cling to the privilege her parents fought to win for her, or will she give up everything she’s strived for in pursuit of a free Medio—and a chance at a forbidden love?
