The Maverick (Hayden Family Series) Book Review:

I know you've heard about me. The middle Hayden brother, the one whose wife ran off. I'm not the short-tempered new owner of the Hayden Cattle Company, like my big brother. I'm not the wild stallion with a mystery ax to grind, like my little brother. I'm Warner Hayden. Single-father, second-in-command of my family's ranching dynasty, and my steady, secure world is about to get rocked by America's sweetheart. I'd heard Tenley Roberts was coming to our small town to film her latest movie, I just didn't think she'd be driving a 1976 Bronco. So, no, I didn't know the identity of the beautiful stranger I helped on the side of the road, but I figured it out a few days later. And I haven't been the same since. Tenley is unexpectedly funny, and complicated. I'm recently divorced, fearful of the way she makes my heart beat double-time, and gun-shy.Despite all this, we're too wrapped up in each other to care. But then things with Tenley take an unforeseen turn, and everyone assumes I'll take my licks the way I always have. Not this time. Maybe I am the nice, dependable brother. But I'm also a Hayden, born and bred. And this bull has horns.

Amy Lowell Anew Book Review:

The controversial American poet Amy Lowell (1874-1925), a founding member of the Imagist group that included D. H. Lawrence and H. D., excelled as the impresario for the “new poetry” that became news across the U. S. in the years after World War I. Maligned by T. S. Eliot as the “demon saleswoman” of poetry, and ridiculed by Ezra Pound, Lowell has been treated by previous biographers as an obese, sex-starved, inferior poet who smoked cigars and made a spectacle of herself, canvassing the country on lecture tours that drew crowds in the hundreds for her electrifying performances. In fact, Lowell wrote some of the finest love lyrics of the 20th century and led a full and loving life with her constant companion, the retired actress Ada Russell. She was awarded the Pulitzer Prize posthumously in 1926. This provocative new biography, the first in forty years, restores Amy Lowell to her full humanity in an era that, at last, is beginning to appreciate the contributions of gays and lesbians to American’s cultural heritage. Drawing on newly discovered letters and papers, Rollyson’s biography finally gives this vibrant poet her due.

Power Play Book Review:

A WALL STREET JOURNAL BUSINESS BESTSELLER • The riveting inside story of Elon Musk and Tesla's bid to build the world's greatest car—from award-winning Wall Street Journal tech and auto reporter Tim Higgins. “A deeply reported and business-savvy chronicle of Tesla's wild ride.” —Walter Isaacson, New York Times Book Review Tesla is the envy of the automotive world. Born at the start of the millennium, it was the first car company to be valued at $1 trillion. Its CEO, the mercurial, charismatic Elon Musk has become not just a celebrity but the richest man in the world. But Tesla’s success was far from guaranteed. Founded in the 2000s, the company was built on an audacious vision. Musk and a small band of Silicon Valley engineers set out to make a car that was quicker, sexier, smoother, and cleaner than any gas-guzzler on the road. Tesla would undergo a hellish fifteen years, beset by rivals—pressured by investors, hobbled by whistleblowers. Musk often found himself in the public’s crosshairs, threatening to bring down the company he had helped build. Wall Street Journal tech and auto reporter Tim Higgins had a front-row seat for the drama: the pileups, breakdowns, and the unlikeliest outcome of all, success. A story of impossible wagers and unlikely triumphs, Power Play is an exhilarating look at how a team of innovators beat the odds—and changed the future.

John, the Maverick Gospel Book Review:

This book introduces the reader to the Gospel of John in a unique way. Robert Kysar focuses on the religious thought of the Fourth Gospel, providing a survey of the major theological themes. He argues that the religious thought of the Fourth Gospel is different than other New Testament literature, and presents it in the context of universal religious questions so that is may be viewed as a fundamental human expression of the religious quest. This excellent book, written in a lively style, is distinguished from other introductions to the Fourth Gospel by the way in which it invites the reader to be involved in the reading of the Gospel itself.

The Puck Talks Here Book Review:

Peter Pocklington rapidly gained his place in Canada's national consciousness as "Peter Puck" - the maverick entrepreneur from oil-rich Alberta who made millions, employed thousands, bucked the political establishment, was the hostage in a famous kidnapping and, most prominently of all, transformed the Edmonton Oilers into the best and most successful hockey team in history. Then, in a few short years, he went from hero to villain - and when he sent Wayne Gretzky, Canada's most revered hockey player, to California, his effigy was burned and his reputation trashed. In The Puck Talks Here, Pocklington's remarkable life is recounted in page-turning fashion - from glorious heights to disheartening depths, to inspired renewal to crushing defeat. The book was previously published under the title "I'd Trade Him Again" (First printing 2009, second printing 2011). This third manuscript is identical to the second printing, but the authors have chosen to retitle the book so as to more accurately, in their opinion, reflect the content. "A lively insider's read." GARTH WOOLSEY, TORONTO STAR "A hell of a life and a hell of a book... I couldn't put it down."

By his early thirties, Paul Allen was a world-famous billionaire-and that was just the beginning. In 2007 and 2008, Time named Paul Allen, the cofounder of Microsoft, one of the hundred most influential people in the world. Since he made his fortune, his impact has been felt in science, technology, business, medicine, sports, music, and philanthropy. His passion, curiosity, and intellectual rigor-combined with the resources to launch and support new initiatives-have literally changed the world. In 2009 Allen discovered that he had lymphoma, lending urgency to his desire to share his story for the first time. In this classic memoir, Allen explains how he has solved problems, what he's learned from his many endeavors-both the triumphs and the failures-and his compelling vision for the future. He reflects candidly on an extraordinary life. The book also features previously untold stories about everything from the true origins of Microsoft to Allen's role in the dawn of private space travel (with SpaceShipOne) and in discoveries at the frontiers of brain science. With honesty, humor, and insight, Allen tells the story of a life of ideas made real.

More Money Than God Book Review:

Wealthy, powerful, and potentially dangerous, hedge-find managers have emerged as the stars of twenty-first century capitalism. Based on unprecedented access to the industry, More Money Than God provides the first authoritative history of hedge funds. This is the inside story of their origins in the 1960s and 1970s, their explosive battles with central banks in the 1980s and 1990s, and finally their role in the financial crisis of 2007-9. Hedge funds reward risk takers, so they tend to attract larger-than-life personalities. Jim Simons began life as a code-breaker and mathematician, co-authoring a paper on theoretical geometry that led to breakthroughs in string theory. Ken Griffin started out trading convertible bonds from his Harvard dorm room. Paul Tudor Jones happily declared that a 1929-style crash would be 'total rock-and-roll' for him. Michael Steinhardt was capable of reducing underlings to sobs. 'All I want to do is kill myself,' one said. 'Can I watch?' Steinhardt responded. A saga of riches and rich egos, this is also a history of discovery. Drawing on insights from mathematics, economics and psychology to crack the mysteries of the market, hedge funds have transformed the world, spawning new markets in exotic financial instruments and rewriting the rules of capitalism. And while major banks, brokers, home lenders, insurers and money market funds failed or were bailed out during the crisis of 2007-9, the hedge-fund industry survived the test, proving that money can be successfully managed without taxpayer safety nets. Anybody pondering fixes to the financial system could usefully start here: the future of finance lies in the history of hedge funds.
