Bailey By My Side: Golden Lessons for Life

by Patricia Burlin Kennedy

From The Book Jacket: "She taught me that insights come when we connect with our hearts; and that its not the size of the house that matters, but the love that dwells within." Bailey is a very special Golden Retriever. She is a dog with a heart of gold who constantly watches over her household, quietly monitoring comings and goings while keeping a vigil at the bottom of the stairs each night, until every one of her charges is safely at home and tucked into bed. Bailey also teaches her people the virtues of patience and dedication. With quiet wisdom, she turns her attention to whoever will benefit the most from her compassionate brown eyes and wagging tail. In her own unassuming way, Bailey gives of her time and energy to lift the burdens of those around her. Bailey's most important lesson of all, however, is that simple mercies are reward enough-to both giver and recipient.

Bailout Nation: How Greed and Easy Money Corrupted Wall Street and Shook the World Economy

by Barry Ritholtz Bill Fleckenstein Aaron Task

An engaging look at what led to the financial turmoil we now find ourselves inBailout Nation offers one of the clearest looks at the financial lenders, regulators, and politicians responsible for the financial crisis of 2008. Written by Barry Ritholtz, one of today's most popular economic bloggers and a well-established industry pundit, this book skillfully explores how the United States evolved from a rugged independent nation to a soft Bailout Nation-where financial firms are allowed to self-regulate in good times, but are bailed out by taxpayers in bad times.Entertaining and informative, this book clearly shows you how years of trying to control the economy with easy money has finally caught up with the federal government and how its practice of repeatedly rescuing Wall Street has come back to bite them.The definitive book on the financial crisis of 2008Names the culprits responsible for this tragedy-from financial regulators to politiciansShows how each bailout throughout modern history has impacted what happened in the futureExamines why the consumer/taxpayer is left suffering in an economy of bubbles, bailouts, and possible inflationRitholtz operates a hugely popular blog, www.ritholtz.com/blogScathing, but fair, Bailout Nation is a voice of reason in these uncertain economic times.

Bailout Over Normandy

by Ted Fahrenwald

A daredevil pilot in the famed 352nd Fighter Squadron, the author of this remarkable memoir bailed out of his burning Mustang two days after D-Day and was launched on a thrilling adventure on the ground in Occupied France. After months living and fighting with the French Resistance, Fahrenwald was captured by the Wehrmacht, interrogated as a spy, and interned in a POW camp--and made a daring escape just before his deportation to Germany. Nothing diminished this pilot's talent for spotting the ironic humor in even the most aggravating or dangerous situations--and nothing stopped his penchant for extracting his own improvised and sometimes hilarious version of justice. A suspenseful WWII page-turner and an outrageously witty tale of daring and friendship, this book brings to vivid life the daily bravery, mischief, and intrigues of fighter pilots, Resistance fighters, and other Allies in the air and on the ground. Captured by the Wehrmacht, however, interrogated as a spy, and interned in a POW camp, the author made a daring escape just before his deportation to Germany. Nothing diminished Ted's talent for spotting the ironic humor in even the most aggravating or dangerous situations, nor his penchant for extracting his own improvised and sometimes hilarious version of justice. The author recorded his swashbuckling adventures at age twenty-four, after his discharge and return to the States. Afterward he went into business and never again put pen to paper. But his immediate reminiscence of his wartime experience--recently found--reveals a rare literary talent.

With Mimi complaining about everything from the state of Lucy's lawn to another neighbor's lovable dog, quaint Tinker's Cove, Maine, is now entangled in cul-de-sac politics and backstabbing. And when Mimi doesn't show up for her shift at The Hat and Mitten Fund bake sale, the scent of burnt sugar leads Lucy to a shocking discovery: Mimi, face down on her kitchen floor--with a knife in her back. While the police start their investigation, Lucy gets busy writing up the murder for the local Pennysaver--and following a few leads of her own. Lucy knows the women in her neighborhood didn't like Mimi, but they certainly didn't want her dead...right? "I like Lucy Stone a lot, and so will readers." --Carolyn Hart "Leslie Meier writes with sparkle and warmth." --Chicago Sun Times "Mothers everywhere will identify with Lucy Stone and the domestic problems she encounters." --Publishers Weekly
