A woman in charge [the life of Hillary Rodham Clinton] by Carl Bernstein( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 378 libraries worldwide
"Carl Bernstein's stunning portrait of Hillary Rodham Clinton shows us, as nothing else has, the true trajectory of her life and career with its zigzag bursts of risks taken and safety sought. Marshaling all the skills and energy that propelled his history-making Pulitzer Prize reporting on Watergate, Bernstein gives us the most detailed, sophisticated, comprehensive, and revealing account we have had of the complex human being and political meteor who has already helped define one presidency and may well become, herself, the woman in charge of another. In his preparation for A Woman in Charge, Bernstein reexamined everything pertinent written about and by Hillary Clinton. He interviewed some two hundred of her colleagues, friends, and enemies and was allowed unique access to the candid record of the 1992 presidential campaign kept by Hillary's best friend, Diane Blair. He has given us an audiobook that enables us, at last, to address the questions Americans are insistently--even obsessively--asking about Hillary Clinton: What is her character? What is her political philosophy? Who is she? What can we expect of her? As she decides to run for president, her husband now her valued aide, she has one more chance to fulfill her ambition for herself--to change the world"--Publisher's web site

Fighter pilot [the memoirs of legendary ace Robin Olds] by Robin Olds( Sound Recording )
6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 256 libraries worldwide
"Robin Olds was a larger-than-life hero with a towering personality. A graduate of West Point and an inductee in the National College Football Hall of Fame for his All-American performance for Army, Olds was one of the toughest college football players at the time. In WWII, Olds quickly became a top fighter pilot and squadron commander by the age of 22 and an ace with 12 aerial victories. But it was in Vietnam where the man became a legend. He arrived in 1966 to find a dejected group of pilots and motivated them by placing himself on the flight schedule under officers junior to himself, then challenging them to train him properly because he would soon be leading them. Proving he wasn't a WWII retread, he led the wing with aggressiveness, scoring another four confirmed kills, becoming a rare triple ace. Olds (who retired a brigadier general and died in 2007) was a unique individual whose personal story is one of the most eagerly anticipated military books of the year"--Publisher's description
Reading Judas [the Gospel of Judas and the shaping of Christianity] by Elaine H Pagels( Sound Recording )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 254 libraries worldwide
"The unveiling of the long-lost Gospel of Judas has stirred controversy not just among biblical scholars but also among all those brought up on the story of Judas as the ultimate betrayer. Now two leading experts on the Gnostic gospels tackle the important questions this exciting discovery poses: How could any Christian imagine Judas to be Jesus's favorite, as this gospel proposes? Why is the author of this gospel filled with rage at the other disciples? What are his insights into Jesus's brilliant teaching about the spiritual life? And most important, what vision of God does the author offer? The answers to these questions lead deep into the agonizing disputes and exultant visions of God that ultimately came to shape Christianity. Working from Karen King's brilliant new translation of the fragmentary gospel, Elaine Pagels and King recount the evolution of the gospels as a group, showing how some of them fed into the biggest ideas in Christianity: the complex natures of good and evil and the roles of suffering and redemption. They also show how the portrait of Jesus evolved from that of the victim to that of the triumphant master of his own fate. The Gospel of Judas reveals how history has obscured the vibrant and tumultuous early history of Christianity--a time of intense reflection, experimentation, and struggle involving every fundamental issue of human life. Reading Judas raises deep and compelling themes as important today as they were nineteen hundred years ago. This eloquent, passionate book plunges us into the heart of Christiantity itself."--Container

The view from Mount Joy [a novel] by Lorna Landvik( Sound Recording )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 238 libraries worldwide
"The View from Mount Joy, Lorna Landvik's delightfully quirky and intensely moving new novel, is about a man, a supermarket, the roads not taken, and the great, unexpected pleasures found in living a good life. When hunky teenage hockey player Joe Andreson and his widowed mother move to Minneapolis, Joe falls under the seductive spell of Kristi Casey, Ole Bull High's libidinous head cheerleader, the kind of girl a guy can't say no to, even when saying yes guarantees trouble. Joe balances Kristi's lustful manipulation with the down-to-earth companionship of his smart, platonic girlfriend, Darva. But it is Kristi who will prove to be a temptation (and torment) throughout Joe's life. Years later, having once dreamed of a career in pro hockey or as a globetrotting journalist, Joe can't believe that life has deposited him in the aisles of Haugland Foods. But he soon learns that being a grocer is like being the mayor of a small town: His constituents confide astonishing things and always appreciate the value of a hard-to-pass-up special, a free toy for a well-behaved youngster, a pie for the best rendition of "Alfie," or simply Joe's generous dispensing of the milk of human kindness. For Joe, everyday life is its own roller-coaster ride, and all he wants to do is hold on tight. The path Kristi has charged down, on the other hand, is as wild as Joe's is tame--or at least that's how it appears to the outside world. But who has really risked more? Who has lived more? And who is truly happy? As Joe discovers--in this dramatic, heartbreaking, and hilarious novel--sometimes people are lucky enough to be standing in the one place where the view of the world is breathtaking, if only they'll open their eyes to all there is to see"--Publisher's web site
