As recommended by USA Today and excerpted on! Still the Greatest is a love song to the songwriting and recording achievements of Paul, John, George, and Ringo after each struck out on his own. In this creative history, Jackson selects the best songs by each in his solo career and organizes them into fantasy albums they might have formed had they stuck it out. This romp through the post Beatle history of each artist delves into the circumstances behind the composition, recording, and reception of each work, offering a refreshing take on how spectacular much of the Beatles second act truly is. Jackson assesses the over seventy albums and nine hundred songs they collectively released, selecting the creme de la creme of their output."

In Bed Stuy, New York, a small misunderstanding can escalate into having a price on your head—even if you’re totally clean. This gritty, triumphant debut that Publishers Weekly calls “a funny and rewarding read” captures the heart and the hardship of life for an urban teen. A lot of the stuff that gives my neighborhood a bad name, I don’t really mess with. The guns and drugs and all that, not really my thing. Nah, not his thing. Ali’s got enough going on, between school and boxing and helping out at home. His best friend Noodles, though. Now there’s a dude looking for trouble—and, somehow, it’s always Ali around to pick up the pieces. But, hey, a guy’s gotta look out for his boys, right? Besides, it’s all small potatoes; it’s not like anyone’s getting hurt. And then there’s Needles. Needles is Noodles’s brother. He’s got a syndrome, and gets these ticks and blurts out the wildest, craziest things. It’s cool, though: everyone on their street knows he doesn’t mean anything by it. Yeah, it’s cool…until Ali and Noodles and Needles find themselves somewhere they never expected to be…somewhere they never should've been—where the people aren’t so friendly, and even less forgiving.

In his own words, the heavyweight champion of the world pulls no punches as he chronicles the battles he faced in and out of the ring in this fascinating memoir edited by Nobel Prize-winning novelist, Toni Morrison. Growing up in the South, surrounded by racial bigotry and discrimination, Ali fought not just for a living, but also for respect and rewards far more precious than money or glory. He was named Sportsman of the Century by Sports Illustrated and the BBC. Ali redefined what it meant to be an athlete by giving hope to millions around the world and inspiring us all to fight for what is important to us. This is a multifaceted portrait of Muhammad Ali only he could render: sports legend; unapologetic anti-war advocate; outrageous showman and gracious goodwill ambassador; fighter, lover, poet, and provocateur; an irresistible force to be reckoned with. Who better to tell the tale than the man who went the distance living it?

The Greatest Generation Comes Home

The Veteran in American Society

At the conclusion of World War II, Americans anxiously contemplated the return to peace. It was an uncertain time, filled with concerns about demobilization, inflation, strikes, and the return of a second Great Depression. Balanced against these challenges was the hope in a future of unparalleled opportunities for a generation raised in hard times and war. One of the remarkable untold stories of postwar America is the successful assimilation of sixteen million veterans back into civilian society after 1945. The G.I. generation returned home filled with the same sense of fear and hope as most citizens at the time. Their transition from conflict to normalcy is one of the greatest chapters in American history. The Greatest Generation Comes Home combines military and social history into a comprehensive narrative of the veteran’s experience after World War II. It integrates early impressions of home in 1945 with later stories of medical recovery, education, work, politics, and entertainment, as well as moving accounts of the dislocation, alienation, and discomfort many faced. The book includes the experiences of not only the millions of veterans drawn from mainstream white America, but also the women, African Americans, Latinos, and Asian Americans who served the nation. Perhaps most important, the book also examines the legacy bequeathed by these veterans to later generations who served in uniform on new battlefields around the world.

The Greatest Story Ever Forged

Curse of the Christ Myth

Is God fact or fiction? This is the question that has been the subject of debate for millennia, oftentimes leading to violence, as we have seen in the countless religious wars throughout the course of history, including the Islamic and Christian wars of today. The Greatest Story Ever Forged discusses this question, and outlines the fabrications giving birth to these monotheistic religions, their early developments, and how they have tyrannized the West and Middle East for these many centuries. Though there have been many defenders of the faith, David Hernandez shows how these religions have infinitely caused more damage to man than any good they have ever been credited for having done. This is what he calls ''the Curse of the Christ Myth,'' which derives from ''the big lie'' as propounded by the inventors of the Christ Myth, who battled as fiercely among themselves as they did against their detractors or non-believers. These include everyone from the Jews to the Pagans to the Gnostics to the heretics, and any form of ''infidels'' in an effort to establish their ''true'' religions.

"The Greatest" uses an "absolute adjusting slugging percentage" relative to the era in which each player played to rank the greatest players in history. This eliminates the problem of comparing statistics due to the dead ball era, rule changes such as the mound being raised and the strike zone widened from 1963 to 1968, domed stadiums, and the enhanced vitamin era of the 1990's and 2000's. The book also used "absolute defensive statistics" to determine who the greatest defensive players were at each position. Contrary to public opinion it was discovered that Derek Jeter, for example, was a poor defensive shortstop due to poor statistical range. Finally, the book ranks the greatest pitchers in history by comparing the earned run average relative to the era in which each pitched. Greg Maddux, for example, had two of the top five single seasons of all time using this unique objective method.

The world of sports is my escape from the day to day cold hard reality that is my life, people must understand that my life is full of obstacle and it takes a lot of effort just to get started sometimes, sports get me going like nothing else, in my life it is my passion. When I am watching football or basketball I am in the zone my zone. A lot of sports break down various sports because it is their job but I do it because I really, really, really love my sports. People must realize that there is a whole world of sports outside of what we see on T.V. I am talking about those athletes that are not in the spotlight like Lebron, Kobe, or Peyton. I am talking about the athletes like me, the ones living with disability. These people are fighting a double battle because they deal with their physical situation just to do something that they all love just to have some kind of outlet and still we get little of no attention for any of our accomplishments. It is like I said before ?people don?t care about the handicap?, I should say that ?some do but most don?t.? As for me, I will keep doing what I?m doing until someone, somewhere pays attention. Sports gives me and others like me this kind of hope, that alone is reason enough to love the entire world of sports. Just like in the world of sports, people must stop ignoring and underestimating the underdog in the game of life, because the very ones that you count out could be the ones that make the biggest impact. As you can see this thing called sports runs deeper than what everyone wants to realize, it makes people like me believe in somebody.
