Cape Wind: Money, Celebrity, Class, Politics, and the Battle for Our Energy Future on Nantucket Soundby Wendy Williams Robert Whitcomb
When Jim Gordon set out to build a wind farm off the coast of Cape Cod, he knew some people might object. But there was a lot of merit in creating a privately-funded, clean energy source for energy-starved New England, and he felt sure most people would recognize it eventually. Instead, all hell broke loose. Gordon had unwittingly challenged the privilege, power, and assumptions of some of Americas richest and most politically connected people, and they would fight him tooth and nail, no matter what it cost, and even when it made no sense. Wendy Williams and Robert Whitcomb have covered the Cape Wind controversy from its first days, from meetings of concerned mansion owners at the Wianno Club in ultrarich Osterville- near socialite Bunny Mellon's many-chimneyed home-to debates on the floor of the U.S. Senate. Their entertaining, acidly funny account reveals that the battle over wind energy in Nantucket Sound is, at its heart, about an issue relevant everywhere in America: how the wealthy manipulate democracy to serve their own interests. Cape Wind is a rollicking tale of democracy in action and plutocracy in the raw as played out among colorful and glamorous characters on one of America's most historic and renowned pieces of coastline. It is also a cautionary tale about the challenges of evolving beyond reliance on fossil fuels and "foreign oil," and an all-too-real lesson about why America lags behind the rest of the developed world in adopting clean energy. The battle over Nantucket Sound is only the most spectacular of coastal conflicts over energy. the environment, and aesthetics that have erupted in recent years-not only in the U.S. but in many other countries. Wind power is coming, all over the world, and in many places where the turbines appear, so does controversy. As clean energy technology develops, so will the battles. This book explains why, in a deliriously readable way.

Who?"Readers will salivate as they try to figure out where the fictional Ritz ends and the real-life Wendy begins.

New York Times bestselling author and radio and television personality Wendy Williams delivers a page-turning novel based on her alter ego--the divalicious radio DJ Ritz Harper.As the reigning "Queen of Radio," Ritz Harper has managed to out, ridicule, or mess with everyone from hip-hop stars to high-class snobs. So, she's decided to take her career to the next level: Hollywood, baby! Decked out in Chanel from head to toe, and sporting bodacious new breast implants, Ritz is ready for her close-up.

In the dishiest book of the year, the top-rated and controversial radio host delivers the good, the bad, and the ugly on the industry's biggest stars. But we'll let her speak for herself: Whitney Houston: "We have watched her go from our princess...to what looks like one step above a crackhead."
She's the kind of media personality that artists love because she builds them up -- and fear because she can bring them down. She's interviewed many of the biggest names in entertainment -- Jennifer Lopez, Whitney Houston, and Queen Latifah among them -- and is known for her ability to disarm and get them to reveal their secrets. Known as both a "shock jock diva" and "the biggest mouth in New York," Wendy Williams is always at the top of her game, whether she's doing color commentary for the VH1 Fashion Awards or giving romantic advice on her daily drive-time show. But there's more to the Queen of Urban Radio than meets the mike. Wendy's Got the Heat is her story -- about growing up in a predominately white suburb, recovering from drug addiction, struggling to launch a successful career in one of the most male-dominated media industries -- and it's by turns painful, hilarious, triumphant, and totally true.
