NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE
The harrowing, true account from the brave men on the ground who fought back during the Battle of Benghazi.
13 HOURS presents, for the first time ever, the true account of the events of September 11, 2012, when terrorists attacked the US State Department Special Mission Compound and a nearby CIA station called the Annex in Benghazi, Libya. A team of six American security operators fought to repel the attackers and protect the Americans stationed there. Those men went beyond the call of duty, performing extraordinary acts of courage and heroism, to avert tragedy on a much larger scale. This is their personal account, never before told, of what happened during the thirteen hours of that now-infamous attack.

13 HOURS sets the record straight on what happened during a night that has been shrouded in mystery and controversy. Written by New York Times bestselling author Mitchell Zuckoff, this riveting book takes readers into the action-packed story of heroes who laid their lives on the line for one another, for their countrymen, and for their country.

13 HOURS is a stunning, eye-opening, and intense book--but most importantly, it is the truth. The story of what happened to these men--and what they accomplished--is unforgettable.

A Common Struggle: A Personal Journey Through the Past and Future of Mental Illness and Addiction

$9.99
More Info

**A New York Times Bestseller**

Patrick J. Kennedy, the former congressman and youngest child of Senator Ted Kennedy, details his personal and political battle with mental illness and addiction, exploring mental health care's history in the country alongside his and every family's private struggles.

On May 5, 2006, the New York Times ran two stories, "Patrick Kennedy Crashes Car into Capitol Barrier" and then, several hours later, "Patrick Kennedy Says He'll Seek Help for Addiction." It was the first time that the popular Rhode Island congressman had publicly disclosed his addiction to prescription painkillers, the true extent of his struggle with bipolar disorder and his plan to immediately seek treatment. That could have been the end of his career, but instead it was the beginning.

Since then, Kennedy has become the nation's leading advocate for mental health and substance abuse care, research and policy both in and out of Congress. And ever since passing the landmark Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act--and after the death of his father, leaving Congress--he has been changing the dialogue that surrounds all brain diseases.

A Common Struggle weaves together Kennedy's private and professional narratives, echoing Kennedy's philosophy that for him, the personal is political and the political personal. Focusing on the years from his 'coming out' about suffering from bipolar disorder and addiction to the present day, the book examines Kennedy's journey toward recovery and reflects on Americans' propensity to treat mental illnesses as "family secrets."

Beyond his own story, though, Kennedy creates a roadmap for equality in the mental health community, and outlines a bold plan for the future of mental health policy. Written with award-winning healthcare journalist and best-selling author Stephen Fried, A Common Struggle is both a cry for empathy and a call to action.

Alice in Credit Land

$12.00
More Info

Remember the debt crisis? The worst economic crisis in America since the Great Depression. The United States almost went under. 

People say it was caused by the federal government forcing poor people to own their own homes. Were they nuts? Everyone knows that poor people can't own their own homes. That's why we have projects. That's why we have trailer parks. That's why we have shelters. 

Well it's going to happen all over again. Poor people are saying there aren't any apartments they can afford anymore, and banks won't help them buy trailers. So they are trying to own homes again. Don't fall for it! It will bring the economy down again. Here's the proof! 

This is the true story of Alice, a poor person, who wanted to buy a home the last time around.

All Women are Bitches

$12.00
More Info
All Women Are Bitches is a short, historically factual, very irreverent and slightly biased account of the relationships between women and men and their connection to religion. Although this is clearly meant to be a handbook for men, it is dedicated to all the beautiful women who inspired me to write it. I realize that many of you will understandably be quite upset with me and think that only an asshole would write a book with a title like this. You could be right about that, but please don't rush to judgment. Do you really think I spent all this time and effort to be known as the asshole who wrote a book? The contents might surprise you, and if you take the time to read the entire book, you may change your opinion. I'm actually very loveable. And ladies, if you do decide to read this handbook for men, there is a section near the end where I offer you some helpful advice that you may be able to use in the future. And don't get all negative on me before I even start; I'm not telling you what to do because I know better. I'm only offering advice. When I decided well over a year ago to write a book, I wasn't really sure what to write about. My initial thought was to come across as likeable and for the book to be entertaining, easy reading, and non-offensive. Obviously that didn't happen. Days went by and I had nothing, so I wrote this instead.

Award Winning Real Estate Sales

$9.99
More Info
Regardless of where in the United States you are licensed to sell real estate, the market is subject to cyclical highs and lows. Many real estate agents find that when the market is flourishing listings can be plentiful and clients can be obtained through traditional methods. But what happens when the market tanks? Some agents leave the profession in disgust. Others search for less conventional ways to continue their real estate success. This book will help all agents garner more listings in any market but it is intended for those who are searching for a way to, not just survive, but rather to thrive when market conditions are not so conducive to word of mouth or traditional advertising methods. Marketing to "For Sale By Owners" (FSBOs) can be intimidating to many real estate agents causing them to shy away from one of the most lucrative marketing strategies available to them. In fact, because many agents refuse to approach a FSBO, it remains one of the most productive weapons available in an agent's arsenal. After all, these are people who have already made a firm decision to sell their home. They just don't realize yet that they will net more money from the sale if they hire a real estate agent even after paying commissions as high as 6 or 7%. This book will demystify the process of working with FSBOs. It will teach you all you need to know to not only identify and approach a FSBO, but to contract for the listing and make more money than you ever thought possible in any real estate market, particularly a depressed or declining one.

Butterfly Club: Is That You?

$10.00
More Info

The death of a loved one is a tragic event. Yet in our darkest hours, God often provides hope and comfort through the smallest things-like a butterfly.

In the vein of "When God Winks" and "Chicken Soup for the Christian Soul, The Butterfly Club "presents real people's stories of how God can, and does, use signs to communicate His presence to those in need. When author Phyllis Calvey heard story after story of how God used the sign of a butterfly to comfort those grieving the loss of a loved one, she set out to gather as many of those stories as she could find. Compiled together, these tales from people who share a common spiritual experience involving a butterfly-The Butterfly Club-answer the age-old question, "Does God speak to us?"

Whether you are grieving, or consoling someone who is, these stories of God's undeniable presence will spark hope and dispel the difference between a mere coincidence and a genuine sign from God.
