Understanding Today’s Complex World of the Future is a Little Like Having Bees Live in Your Head

But, there they are.Title: “The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload”

Author: Daniel J. Levitin

Rank: 87

Blurb: “Levitin turns his attention to an issue that affects everyone in the digital age: organization. It’s the reason that some people are more adept than others at managing today’s hyper flow of data. The Organized Mind explains the science behind their success and — with chapters targeted specifically to business readers — shows how all of us can make small but crucial changes to regain mastery over our lives.”

Review: “At times Levitin may appear longwinded in his narrative.”

Blurb: “The Cheneys reveal the damage done by President Obama’s policies and demonstrate how his unwillingness to defend and protect American power has weakened the nation and diminished the ability of future presidents to defend us.”

Review: “It also explains how U.S. strength promotes peace, and what U.S. leadership has accomplished, from World War 2 through the Age of Terror.”

Authors: Donald J. Trump and Tony Schwartz

Rank: 88

Blurb: “Even a maverick plays by rules”

Review: “Hope he wins the Presidency. Voting for him. Was wavering toward others but they have a lot of serious crimes against humanity, the business world in their past. A couple politicians committed murder. I won’t mention who. Anyone can do a search-investigation. Its covered up due to the money they pay, people they silence.”

The Gift That Keeps On Grieving

Father Knows Beasts.Title: “Plunder and Deceit”

Author: Mark R. Levin

Rank: 5

Blurb: “This essential new book is, against all odds, a likeminded appeal to reason and audacity — one intended for all Americans but particularly the rising generation. Younger people must find the personal strength and will to break through the cycle of statist manipulation, unrelenting emotional overtures, and the pressure of groupthink, which are humbling, dispiriting, and absorbing them; to stand up against the heavy hand of centralized government, which if left unabated will assuredly condemn them to economic and societal calamity.”

Review: “I have lots of estrogen in my family… four daughters from the age of 12 to 30. I’m ordering 4 additional books because they are both ‘plundered’ and ‘deceived’… and Mark Levin’s book rationally outlines why.”
