Wheat belly : lose the wheat, lose the weight, and find your path back to health by William Davis( file )
14 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 715 libraries worldwide
Since the introduction of dietary guidelines calling for reduced fat intake in the 1970s, a strange phenomenon has occurred: Americans have become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever. After putting over two thousand of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing amazing results, cardiologist William Davis has concluded that it is not fat, sugar, or a sedentary lifestyle that is causing America's obesity epidemic--it is wheat. Here, Dr. Davis exposes the truth about modern-day wheat, which has been genetically modified almost beyond recognition. He sheds light on wheat's connection to weight gain and a host of other adverse effects from diabetes to heart disease to immunologic and neurologic disorders. Finally, to help listeners make the move to a wheat-free diet, he offers an action plan packed with food and lifestyle tips, meal plans, and recipes

Beyond band of brothers : [the war memoirs of Major Dick Winters] by Richard D Winters( Sound Recording )
15 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 646 libraries worldwide
They were called Easy Company - but their mission was never easy. Immortalized as the Band of Brothers, they suffered 150 percent casualties while liberating Europe - an unparalleled record of bravery under fire. Dick Winters was their commander - "the best combat leader in World War II" to his men. This is his story - told in his own words for the first time. On D-Day, Dick Winters parachuted into France and assumed leadership of the Band of Brothers when their commander was killed. He led them through the Battle of the Bulge, the attack on Foy - where Easy Company reached its breaking point - and into Germany, by which time each member had been wounded. Outside Munich, they liberated an S.S. death camp from the horrors of the Holocaust and captured Berchtesgaden, Hitler's alpine retreat. Briefly on active duty during the Korean War, Winters then lived on a small Pennsylvania farm and was a highly successful businessman. Made famous by Stephen Ambrose's Band of Brothers, he is a hero in a world hungry for them. Beyond Band of Brothers is Winters's memoir - based on his wartime diary - but it also includes his comrades' untold stories. Virtually all this material is being released for the first time. Only Winters was present from the activation of Easy Company until the war's end. He explains the cohesion behind the Band of Brothers and the comradeship that is war's only redeeming quality, the debilitating effect of combat, the horror of seeing friends killed and wounded, and the key qualities that have made him a role model of cool-headed leadership under fire and a recipient of the Distinguished Service Cross. Neither a protest against war nor a glamourization of combat, this is a tribute to the human spirit by a man who earned the love and respect of the men of Easy Company - and the adulation of new generations worldwide

Blackwater : the rise of the world's most powerful mercenary army by Jeremy Scahill( file )
14 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 535 libraries worldwide
A largely untold facet of the war on terror is the widespread outsourcing of military tasks to private mercenary companies. Accountable neither to the citizenry nor to standard military legal codes, these largely unregulated corporate armies are being entrusted with ever-greater responsibilities on behalf of the nation. Meet Blackwater USA, the world's most secretive, powerful, and fastest growing private army on the planet. Founded by fundamentalist Christian megamillionaire Erik Prince, the scion of a conservative dynasty that bankrolls extreme-right-wing causes, this company of soldiers is now being sent "to the front lines of a global battle, waged largely on Muslim lands, that an evangelical President whom Prince helped put in the White House has boldly defined as a 'crusade'." Ranging from the blood-soaked streets of Fallujah to Washington, D.C., where they are hailed as heroes, this is the dark story of Blackwater's rise to power

In this globe-trotting account of one leading counterterrorism agent's life and career, Burton, as a member of an elite secret counter-terrorist division, tells how he was plunged into a murky world of violent religious extremism, one that would take him from the streets of Middle Eastern cities to the informant-filled alleys of American slums. Told in compelling first-person, here, too, is Burton's advice on personal safety for today's most powerful CEOs, gleaned from his experience at Stratfor, the private firm Barron's calls "the shadow CIA."

The laughing policeman : a Martin Beck police mystery by Maj Sjöwall( Sound Recording )
12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 337 libraries worldwide
On a cold and rainy Stockholm night, nine bus riders are gunned down by an unknown assassin. The press, anxious for an explanation for the seemingly random crime, quickly dubs the killer a madman. But Superintendent Martin Beck of the Stockholm Homicide Squad suspects otherwise: this apparently motiveless killer has managed to target one of Beck's best detectives, young Ake Stenstrom. Reasoning that Stenstrom would not have been riding that lethal bus without a reason, Beck retraces his steps and chases year-old clues to a crime long thought unsolvable. With its wonderfully observed lawmen (including the inimitable Martin Beck), its brilliantly rendered felons and their murky Stockholm underworld, and its deftly engineered plot, this is another incredible installment in the acclaimed Martin Beck mystery series
