Torie Clarke, renowned and respected in political and business circles as one of the nation's most gifted communicators, offers a complete guide to the new age of transparency.

The Osama bin Laden I Know: An Oral History of al Qaeda's Leader

No one knows more about Osama bin Laden than Peter Bergen. In 1997, well before the West suddenly became aware of the world's most sought-after terrorist, Bergen met with him and has followed his activities ever since.

Amazing Book - Parasites that literally take over the brains of animals!

If you liked the video of the fungus that can take over an ant's brain, this book is full of such stories. Toxoplasma makes infected rats fearless, thus more likely to be eaten by cats, who will then pick up the microbe. Screwworms can render the least scratch fatal, causing their hosts (monkeys) to stay safe, thus preserving the parasite as well.

Pearl Harbor was not an accident, a mere failure of American intelligence, or a brilliant Japanese military coup. It was the result of a carefully orchestrated design, initiated at the highest levels of our government. According to a key memorandum eight steps were taken to make sure we would enter the war by this means. Pearl Harbor was the only way, leading officials felt, to galvanize the reluctant American public into action.

This great question of Pearl Harbor--what did we know and when did we know it?--has been argued for years…
