A six-month New York Times bestseller: “Not only the best Watergate book, but a very good book indeed” (The Sunday Times). As White House counsel to Richard Nixon, a young John W. Dean was one of the primary players in the Watergate scandal—and ultimately became the government’s key witness in the investigations that ended the Nixon presidency. After the scandal subsided, Dean rebuilt his career, first in business and then as a bestselling author and lecturer. But while the events were still fresh in his mind, he wrote this remarkable memoir about the operations of the Nixon White House and the crisis that led to the president’s resignation. Called “fascinating” by Commentary, which noted that “there can be little doubt of [Dean's] memory or his candor,” Blind Ambition offers an insider’s view of the deceptions and machinations that brought down an administration and changed the American people’s view of politics and power. It also contains Dean’s own unsparing reflections on the personal demons that drove him to participate in the sordid affair. Upon its original publication, Kirkus Reviews hailed it “the flip side of All the President’s Men—a document, a minefield, and prime entertainment.” Today, Dean is a respected and outspoken advocate for transparency and ethics in government, and the bestselling author of such books as The Nixon Defense, Worse Than Watergate, and Conservatives Without Conscience. Here, in Blind Ambition, he “paints a candid picture of the sickening moral bankruptcy which permeated the White House and to which he contributed. His memory of who said what and to whom is astounding” (Foreign Affairs).

A product of share-cropping parents and raised on one of the biggest plantations in the South, Ever allowed those disappointments to diminish her self-confidence and sully her self-esteem.

As darkness began to envelop her, and inspired by the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Ever eventually decided to stop feeling sorry for herself and face her fears. Through two turbulent marriages, a host of setbacks, and a life that was getting harder and harder to manage, Ever encountered defeats, but was determined not to be defeated. Now, decades after she lost her eyesight, her powerful story is one of inspiration and ambition....and helping others realize their lives have purpose as they reach their full potential in spite of any obstacles in their paths.

Blind Faith, Blind Ambition is more than just the compelling story of a common man with uncommon faith creating extraordinary results. It's a recipe for how anyone can achieve this for themselves. Eric Schaffert was modestly born and raised in steel country, in Mahoning County - and has lived most of his life in that region. Yet he has become one of the most decorated sales professionals in the history of the world's largest pharmaceutical company. His secret to success is so simple, it's available to anyone. In the author's words: "Everything we see, experience or create in our life, our world, starts with a dream. The ability to dream big dreams is what has historically made America and Americans especially unique. There seems to be, however, a mentality in many areas that the American dream of finding success, however you wish to define it, is dead. More than a few have intimated that dreaming big dreams is a romantic endeavor without much utility in the real world. If someone had told me in 1976 that I would achieve both financial independence and fulfillment in my chosen profession, I would have said that's a wonderful vision. If that same person said I would also be associated with one of the world's pharmaceutical giants, be inducted into their sales Hall of Fame, and to then accept this award during a ceremony at Mar-a-Lago, the home of Donald Trump, I would have said this person's ability to dream big dreams exceeded even mine. Every one of us has a 'Mahoning County' in our personal history - where we were born, where we grew up, where we started our careers. I also believe each and every one of us has a 'Mar-a-Lago' in our personal dreams - that special destination we hope our life's journey will lead us to both professionally and personally. My story is not only about finding success and fulfillment in sales or business, but more importantly the business of life. Follow my journey to Mar-a-Lago. It is my sincere wish that I inspire you in at least some small way to not only dream but to also find the faith I have found, one that will sustain you in the pursuit of your dreams."

History has been taught through illusions in order to divide and establish power. These constant illusions force the Psychopathic Genius to develop a stream of consciousness that evokes a maladaptive schizophrenic disposition. In this schizophrenic state, the Psychopathic Genius manifests recurring illusions that were once used to control as a means of controlling. As the story progresses, these illusions become so cliche that it forces the Psychopathic Genius to rebuke societal doctrine. This epic doesn't evolve, instead, it shows the continual war that we all fight: Protagonist vs. Antagonist, God vs. Satan, Adam vs. Eve, Rich vs. Poor, Old vs. New, Parent vs. Child, Black vs. White, Right vs. Wrong, Morality vs. Judgment, Society vs. Individual, Master vs. Slave and most pertinent to the Psychopathic Genius: Nigger vs. Racist. Step inside the lost paradise of a Brave New World. This book is rated PG: Psychopathic Genius... Vanity is the only sanity.

If countries are to manage their forest sustainably they must implement existing laws effectively, and they must do so now! Cut and Run offers readers valuable insight on how this might be done."
