About the Book

Marathon Crasher is David Davis’s stunning account of how Merry Lepper became the first American woman to complete a marathon At a time when television was pushing male-dominated sports coverage into living rooms across America, women were struggling just to set foot onto the playing field. Barred from officially registering for long-distance running competitions, some women ran anyway, defying the authorities and the rules. Still, no American woman had ever successfully completed sports’ ultimate endurance test: the marathon. That changed in December of 1963, when Merry Lepper became the first. Leaping out of her hiding place...

Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compasionate Conservatism Who Gives, Who Doesn’t, and Why It Matters

Author: Arthur C. Brooks

About the Book

We all know we should give to charity, but who really does? Approximately three-quarters of Americans give their time and money to various charities, churches, and causes; the other quarter of the population does not. Why has America split into two nations: givers and non-givers? Arthur Brooks, a top scholar of economics and public policy, has spent years researching this trend, and even he was surprised by what he found. In Who Really Cares, he demonstrates conclusively that conservatives really are compassionate-far more compassionate than their liberal foes. Strong families, church attendance, earned income (as opposed to state-subsidized...

The Great American Bank Robbery: The Unauthorized Report About What Really Caused the Great Recession

Author: Paul Sperry

About the Book

You may not realize it, but you helped pay for a $10 million, fourteen-month government “investigation” of the housing collapse. Only your $10 million didn’t buy much, and it certainly didn’t buy truth; any hope of that went out the window on day one. The congressionally appointed panel―made up primarily of anti-market, historic revisionists―managed to shift the blame away from Washington and onto mortgage lenders and “greedy” Wall Street executives, while protecting the real culprits at the core of the crisis: POLITICIANS LIKE THEMSELVES. It’s not about Democrat or Republican, left or right, black or white. It’s about...
