The nine : [inside the secret world of the Supreme Court] by Jeffrey Toobin( Recording )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bestselling author Jeffrey Toobin takes you into the chambers of the Supreme Court and reveals the complex dynamic among the nine people who decide the law of the land. Just in time for the 2008 presidential election-- where the future of the Court will be at stake-- Toobin reveals an institution at a moment of transition, when decades of conservative disgust with the Court have finally produced a conservative majority, with major changes in store on such issues as abortion, civil rights, presidential power, and church-state relations. Based on exclusive interviews with the justices themselves, The Nine tells the story of the Court through personalities-- from Anthony Kennedy's overwhelming sense of self-importance to Clarence Thomas's well-tended grievances against his critics to David Souter's odd nineteenth-century lifestyle. There is also, for the first time, the full behind-the-scenes story of Bush v. Gore-- and Sandra Day O'Connor's fateful breach with George W. Bush, the president she helped place in office."

6 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1998, William Queen was a veteran law enforcement agent with a lifelong love of motorcycles and a lack of patience with paperwork. When a "confidential informant" made contact with his boss at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, offering to take an agent inside the San Fernando chapter of the Mongols (the scourge of Southern California, and one of the most dangerous gangs in America), Queen jumped at the chance, not realizing that he was kick-starting the most extensive undercover operation inside an outlaw motorcycle gang in the history of American law enforcement. Nor did Queen suspect that he would penetrate the gang so successfully that he would become a fully "patched-in" member, eventually rising through their ranks to the office of treasurer, where he had unprecedented access to evidence of their criminal activity. After he spent twenty-eight months as "Billy St. John," the bearded, beer-swilling, Harley-riding gang-banger, the truth of his identity became blurry, even to himself

Are you too busy? Are you always running behind? Is your calendar loaded with more than you can possibly accomplish? Is it driving you crazy? You're not alone. Crazybusy--the modern phenomenon of brain overload--is a national epidemic. Without intending for it to happen, we've plunged ourselves into a mad rush of activity, expecting our brains to keep track of more than they comfortably or effectively can. In fact, as attention deficit disorder expert and bestselling author Edward M. Hallowell, M.D., argues in this groundbreaking new audiobook, brain overload has reached the point where our entire society is suffering from culturally induced ADD. But as Dr. Hallowell argues, being crazybusy can also be an opportunity. The impulse to be busy can be turned to our advantage once we get in touch with our needs and take charge of how we really want to spend our time. Through quick exercises (perfect for busy people), focused advice on everything on everything from lifestyle to time management, and examples chosen from his extensive clinical experience, Dr. Hallowell goes step-by-step over the process of unsnarling frantic lives
