An Unreasonable Woman Free from Amazon Kindle Store

An Unreasonable Woman: A True Story of Shrimpers, Politicos, Polluters, and the Fight for Seadrift, Texas by Diane Wilson is free today from the Amazon Kindle store, and has received a perfect 5 out of 5 stars based on 17 customer reviews.  You can pick up your free copy by clicking here or typing in http://amzn.to/q1Ad6O into your computer’s web browser.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

In the battle to halt the monstrous pollution destroying Texas’ Lavaca Bay, it seemed impossible that one little lady could take on a multibillion-dollar international chemical company and win–but win Wilson did. A minimally educated shrimp-boat captain and mother of five, Wilson suffered great personal tragedy, including death threats and divorce, in her frustrating and demoralizing crusade against Formosa Plastic’s proposed $1.3 billion expansion of its PVC manufacturing facility in Calhoun County, Texas, already deemed the most toxic district in the country. Armed with nothing more than her deep-seated love for the bay outside her door and an unwavering sense of justice, Wilson almost single-handedly set out to reveal the environmental destruction, worker intimidation, legal machinations, and political manipulation that epitomized Formosa’s ruthless business practices. With unbridled passion, Wilson renders her “Diane-versus-Goliath” confrontation in honest and unadorned prose, liberally and gracefully lacing it with passages of heartbreaking lyricism and provocative wisdom that reveal the depth of her commitment. Few people in this world deserve to be called heroes; Wilson assuredly is one of them.

AIDS: Taking a Long Term View Free from Amazon Kindle Store

AIDS: Taking a Long-Term View by the AIDS 2031 Consortium is free today from the Amazon Kindle store, and you can pick up your free copy by clicking here or typing in http://amzn.to/oWbr33 into your computer’s web browser.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

The definitive report on the AIDS pandemic: where it stands, where it’s headed, what we’ve learned, and the choices we face

Over 25 million people have died from AIDS, and more than 33 million are living with HIV today. While treatments have moved AIDS from a fatal to a chronic disease, it remains the sixth greatest cause of death globally–and many of those infected in the poorest countries don’t have access to treatments. In short, AIDS is a continuing worldwide health crisis.

In this book, the aids2031 Consortium’s experts examine the first 30 years of the AIDS response and propose options for the future, focusing on what needs to be done differently now to change the face of AIDS by 2031, which will mark 50 years since AIDS was first reported.

They address the full scope of the pandemic: basic science, public health, funding, treatment options, and social and societal impacts. Then, they review the full spectrum of possible responses over the next two decades, carefully assess progress, and discuss both persistent and emerging challenges.

Written to be easily understandable by all readers, this book is the single best source of reliable information on where the AIDS pandemic stands today, where it’s headed, and what can be done to create better outcomes between now and 2031.

  • · The future of AIDS
    What has been accomplished and what remains to be done
  • · Generating new knowledge and using it more effectively
    Focusing scientific research and efficiently applying what it yields
  • · Planning for more effective prevention
    Creating programs that work better and offer greater local ownership
  • · Financing AIDS programs for the next generation
    Overcoming donor fatigue and other challenges
  • · Authoritative, complete, up-to-date, and accessible
  • · Covers scientific advances, treatment options, public health, funding, and directions for progress
  • · For policymakers, researchers, health professionals, stakeholders, and citizens

The world is approaching a moment of truth. Over the past 30 years, the worldwide mobilization against AIDS has generated historic achievements and prevented millions of deaths. Yet ominous signs suggest that the AIDS response is beginning to fracture.

The global community has repeatedly mobilized to address global health crises only to lose interest prematurely, with catastrophic impact. Will this tragic story be repeated with AIDS? Or will decision-makers chart a healthier, more enlightened course?

In this book, the aids2031 Consortium, a worldwide group of experts, examines the possible future of AIDS, the factors likely to determine its course, and the steps needed to sharply reduce new infections and deaths. It identifies successful strategies that can be strengthened, as well as changes needed to respond more effectively and sustainably.

40 Days Without Food Free from Amazon Kindle Store

40 Days Without Food by Russ Masterson is free today from the Amazon Kindle store, and has received an average user rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars based on 12 customer reviews.  You can pick up your free copy by clicking here or typing in http://amzn.to/poMk3q into your computer’s web browser.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Russ Masterson had read and heard about purpose, but didn’t have a clue what his own purpose was to be. And there was emptiness where there should have been value. “I had a college degree, and soon a seminary degree to accompany it, yet I didn’t know where to go or what to do.” As he puts it, “I kept hoping a step would arrive when it was time to lift my foot.”

Disillusioned with his life, as well as with God, he heard this advice: fast from food for 40 days. Faithless and frazzled, Russ accepted the challenge, hoping for direction, reflecting on the past, and wrestling with issues like purpose, faith, and love.

In this book, readers will find a fresh literary voice–an insightful thinker who meets people in their humanity while helping them to see they can be rescued from it. The journey of these forty days without food will help you explore what really matters in life.

How Can I Talk If My Lips Don’t Move Free from Amazon Kindle Store

How Can I Talk If My Lips Don’t Move: Inside My Autistic Mind by Tito Rajarshi Mukhopadhyay is free today from the Amazon Kindle store, and has received a perfect 5 out of 5 stars based on 10 customer reviews.  You can pick up your free copy by clicking here or typing in http://amzn.to/qK67qy into your computer’s web browser.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

In short chapters, some including evocative prose poems, Mukhopadhyay, a severely autistic adolescent whose mother painstakingly taught him how to read and write, introduces the reader to his daily inner life. Sometimes his thoughts are compulsive—he misses an entire film while mentally drawing diagonals across every one of the design squares on the cinema’s ceiling—and sometimes fragmented, as when looking at a bucket: I might easily get distracted by its redness, since it would remind me of how my hands bled when I had fallen from a swing, how I was so absorbed in that red that I had forgotten about my pain, and how that red resembled a hibiscus…. Mukhopadhyay reflects on autism without romanticizing it, acknowledging my physical and neurological limitations and declaring, I am not worried about hell because I have experienced it here on earth. Occasionally, his writing is somewhat sketchy, but for the most part this is an eye-opening book on a serious disorder and the hope that other autistic children can learn to transcend it through education and imaginative self-reflection.

Facebook Fairytales Free From Amazon Kindle Store

Facebook Fairytales: Modern-Day Miracles to Inspire the Human Spirit by Emily Liebert is free today from the Amazon Kindle store, and has received a perfect 5 out of 5 stars based on 21 customer reviews.  You can pick up your free copy by clicking here or typing in http://amzn.to/nPTUBv into your computer’s web browser.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Stories to touch and inspire, for and from the social-networking generation.

Once upon a time there was an online social network called Facebook, and it brought together people from all over the globe, helping them to reignite romances, launch careers, and even find organ donors. Facebook Fairytales brings to light inspirational “happy endings” stemming from the increasingly popular social-networking site. Author Emily Liebert crafts captivating narratives of real-life stories from interviews with Facebook users who have used the site’s many applications to find biological parents, relay messages to loved ones during the Mumbai terrorist attacks, donate money to Chinese orphanages, and try to hunt down a hit-and-run criminal. Readers will relate to these tales and, simultaneously, be charmed by the little spark of magic that sets them apart from your everyday success stories.

Liebert also interviews and shares the story of Chris Hughes, Facebook cofounder who worked on the Obama new-media campaign, revolutionizing the use of social-networking sites as a political tool. Complete with an introductory interview with Facebook founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook Fairytales is a collection of tales that will inspire you to seek out your “happily ever after” on the world’s most popular social-networking site—and maybe find Prince Charming along the way.
