American Sniper by Chris Kyle,Scott McEwen,Jim DeFelice Summary

The #1 New York Times bestselling memoir of U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle, and the source for Clint Eastwood’s blockbuster movie which was nominated for six academy awards, including best picture. From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. His fellow American warriors, whom he protected with deadly precision from rooftops and stealth positions during the Iraq War, called him “The Legend”; meanwhile, the enemy feared him so much they named him al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle, who was tragically killed in 2013, writes honestly about the pain of war—including the deaths of two close SEAL teammates—and in moving first-person passages throughout, his wife, Taya, speaks openly about the strains of war on their family, as well as on Chris. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle’s masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time.

Time to Write, Second Edition by John Sylvester Lofty Summary

Analyzes interviews with students, teachers, and administrators to develop a new set of literacies essential for student success in the digital age. “To read John’s work is to take on the role of a patient listener … A book, like a piece of music, is scored for time, and I feel Time to Write is scored adagio.… I believe that Time to Write can be read as a critique of [the] time-chopping approach to education—and an argument for presence, for being fully open to experience, for being there … To do good work, we must enter something like ‘island time’ or what John calls ‘existential time’—or what is sometimes called ‘flow’ when we lose, at least temporarily, a sense of clock time.” — from the Foreword by Thomas Newkirk Twenty-five years ago, John Sylvester Lofty studied the influence of cultural time values on students’ resistance to writing instruction in an isolated Maine fishing community. For the new edition of Time to Write, Lofty returned to the island to consider how social and educational developments in the intervening years may have affected both local culture and attitudes toward education. Lofty discovered how the island time values that previously informed students’ literacy learning have been transformed by outside influences, including technology, social media, and the influx of new residents from urban areas. Building on the ethnographic findings of the original study, the new edition analyzes the current conflict between the digital age time values of constant connections and instant communication, and those of school-based literacy. Lofty examines the new literacies now essential for students in a technologically connected world, both those who aspire to continue the traditional island work of lobster fishing, and for the many who now choose to pursue other careers and attend college on the mainland.

Daddin’ by Dion McInnis Summary

This is a book of moments...the moments that describe and illuminate the verbs of fatherhood. In our society, mothers mother. They care for, nurture and love their children in ways that give meaning and understanding to the verb “to mother.” When we talk about a man fathering a child, the intended meaning is usually that the man sired a child. What are the verbs that describe what happens each day for a father? The verb of being a dad is now daddin’. This book blends stories and insights of being son to a father and father to three sons, over the years of havin’, learnin’, listenin’, lovin’, playin’, fishin’, growin’, leavin’ and livin’. Those comprise the verbs and the chapters of this father’s view of living and loving the role of dad. This is, at its core, a tribute to my parents and my sons.

The Know-It-All by A. J. Jacobs Summary

33,000 pages 44 million words 10 billion years of history 1 obsessed man Part memoir and part education (or lack thereof), The Know-It-All chronicles NPR contributor A.J. Jacobs's hilarious, enlightening, and seemingly impossible quest to read the Encyclopaedia Britannica from A to Z. To fill the ever-widening gaps in his Ivy League education, A.J. Jacobs sets for himself the daunting task of reading all thirty-two volumes of the Encyclopaedia Britannica. His wife, Julie, tells him it's a waste of time, his friends believe he is losing his mind, and his father, a brilliant attorney who had once attempted the same feat and quit somewhere around Borneo, is encouraging but, shall we say, unconvinced. With self-deprecating wit and a disarming frankness, The Know-It-All recounts the unexpected and comically disruptive effects Operation Encyclopedia has on every part of Jacobs's life -- from his newly minted marriage to his complicated relationship with his father and the rest of his charmingly eccentric New York family to his day job as an editor at Esquire. Jacobs's project tests the outer limits of his stamina and forces him to explore the real meaning of intelligence as he endeavors to join Mensa, win a spot on Jeopardy!, and absorb 33,000 pages of learning. On his journey he stumbles upon some of the strangest, funniest, and most profound facts about every topic under the sun, all while battling fatigue, ridicule, and the paralyzing fear that attends his first real-life responsibility -- the impending birth of his first child. The Know-It-All is an ingenious, mightily entertaining memoir of one man's intellect, neuroses, and obsessions and a soul-searching, ultimately touching struggle between the all-consuming quest for factual knowledge and the undeniable gift of hard-won wisdom.

Fatal Flaws by Hank Hanegraaff Summary

As more and more so-called experts challenge what the Bible says about the creation of man, we must take aim with straightforward, Christ-centered answers. Today's generation is bombarded with theories about humankind and its origins. In Fatal Flaws, now in paperback with a study guide included, Hank Hanegraaff keeps Christians from falling prey to corrupting scientific speculation about the origins of life and reminds us that we are God's creation. This common-sense approach puts the concept of evolution in the grasp of everyday Christians and reminds us that ultimately the key to our purpose in this life comes from understanding whose we are and who created us.

A Worldwide Christian Delucion by Johannes J.D Villion Summary

A WORLDWIDE CHRISTIAN DELUSION Encyclopedia America (1956) volume 27, page 294L states: “Christianity is derived from Judaism and Judaism was [and still is] strictly Unnitarion [believe in one God]. The road which led from Jerusalem to Nicaea was scarcely a straight one. 4th century Trinatairians did not reflect accurately early [original Bible] Christian teachings regarding the nature of God. Rather, it was a deviation from this teaching.” Neither Jesus nor his followers intended anything they said about their new revelation to contradict the credo. Constantine himself presided, actively guiding the discussion, and personally proposed the crucial formula expressing the relationship of Christ to God in the creed issued by the council, of one substance with the Father. Overawed by the emperor, the bishops, with two exceptions only, signed the creed, many of them much against their inclination. Henry Chadwick writes in his book titled The Early Church: “Constantine who was the chief architect of the doctrine of the Trinity was not a Christian. Constantine like his father, worshiped the sun; his conversion should not be interpreted as an inward experience of grace . . . It was a military matter.” Historian Will Durant says: “Christianity did not destroy paganism, it adopted it.” At a Jesus seminar in America in 1993, it was concluded that “82% of the words ascribed to Jesus in the gospel were not actually spoken by him” (Britannica, 12th edition, vol. 3, p. 643). There you have it, from the pens of learned Christian scholars that the present Bible is the work of ordinary men and can never be divine. What additional proof could any intelligent person need to disqualify every Bible in existence as the word of God in any language! Can any sensible person argue with such irrefutable evidence?

Ashes to Ashes by Richard Kluger Summary

No book before this one has rendered the story of cigarettes -- mankind's most common self-destructive instrument and its most profitable consumer product -- with such sweep and enlivening detail. Here for the first time, in a story full of the complexities and contradictions of human nature, all the strands of the historical process -- financial, social, psychological, medical, political, and legal -- are woven together in a riveting narrative. The key characters are the top corporate executives, public health investigators, and antismoking activists who have clashed ever more stridently as Americans debate whether smoking should be closely regulated as a major health menace. We see tobacco spread rapidly from its aboriginal sources in the New World 500 years ago, as it becomes increasingly viewed by some as sinful and some as alluring, and by government as a windfall source of tax revenue. With the arrival of the cigarette in the late-nineteenth century, smoking changes from a luxury and occasional pastime to an everyday -- to some, indispensable -- habit, aided markedly by the exuberance of the tobacco huskers. This free-enterprise success saga grows shadowed, from the middle of this century, as science begins to understand the cigarette's toxicity. Ironically the more detailed and persuasive the findings by medical investigators, the more cigarette makers prosper by seeming to modify their product with filters and reduced dosages of tar and nicotine. We see the tobacco manufacturers come under intensifying assault as a rogue industry for knowingly and callously plying their hazardous wares while insisting that the health charges against them (a) remain unproven, and (b) are universally understood, so smokers indulge at their own risk. Among the eye-opening disclosures here: outrageous pseudo-scientific claims made for cigarettes throughout the '30s and '40s, and the story of how the tobacco industry and the National Cancer Institute spent millions to develop a "safer" cigarette that was never brought to market. Dealing with an emotional subject that has generated more heat than light, this book is a dispassionate tour de force that examines the nature of the companies' culpability, the complicity of society as a whole, and the shaky moral ground claimed by smokers who are now demanding recompense
