Relentless

By Julian Edelman, Tom E. Curran
Authors:
Julian Edelman, Tom E. Curran
Of the many storylines to the Patriots' incredible 2016 season, the continuing domination of the team's star wide receiver Julian Edelman was one of the most memorable. Not only did he break his previous personal record for most yards in a season with 1,106, but he also he emerged--on the front page of sports sections across the country--as the Patriots' hero after making an against-all-odds catch when the Patriots were losing 28-20 in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl. Those two seconds in which Edelman seemed to defy gravity, diving forward to catch a football that had ricocheted off two opposing defenders before it reached the ground, will no doubt remain at the center of his legacy. And it should. Edelman had been preparing for that moment his whole life: over warm California winters when he would lead his brothers and sisters in a football scrimmage on not just Thanksgiving, but Christmas, too; at Woodside High School where he led his team to a 13-0 record as a senior; at Kent State University where as quarterback he led his team in passing and rushing as a senior, breaking his school's previous record for total offense; and on the legendary New England Patriots, where he worked with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick to develop his game and become a two-time Super Bowl champion. Taking readers through Edelman's childhood, NFL career, and two incredible Super Bowl victories, this book is the first-hand account of the making of a champion and an indispensable text on what is perhaps the most memorable win in Super Bowl history.

The Rise of Andrew Jackson

By David S. Heidler, Jeanne T. Heidler
Authors:
David S. Heidler, Jeanne T. Heidler
The Rise of Andrew Jackson recounts our seventh president's unlikely ascent to the highest office in the land. Born poor in what became the border region between North and South Carolina, Jackson's sole claim on the public's affections derived from his victory in a thirty-minute battle in early 1815 on the banks of the Mississippi River. A disputatious, often cruel man, he did not seem cut out for any public office, let alone the highest in the land. Yet he acquired acolytes-operatives, handlers, editors, politicians-who for more than a decade labored to make him the President of the United States, and who finally succeeded in 1828.The acclaimed historians David and Jeanne Heidler are the first to examine Jackson's rise by looking primarily at the men (and they were all men) who made it possible, among them future president Martin van Buren, the Karl Rove of his day; Sam Houston, later a leader of the Texas Revolution; and John Overton, Jackson's onetime roommate and romantic rival. They and other of Jackson's supporters published quaint stories of kindness, such as the rescue of the Indian baby Lyncoya. They made him the friend of debtors (he privately dismissed them as deadbeats) and the advocate for low tariffs or high tariffs (he had no opinion on the matter). They styled him the ideological heir of Thomas Jefferson, though he had openly opposed President Jefferson, and the Sage of Monticello himself had been openly dismayed by Jackson's popularity.The Heidlers have pored over the sources from the era-newspaper accounts, private correspondence, memoirs, and more-to tell a story of rude encampments on frontier campaigns and of countless torch lit gatherings where boisterous men munched barbecue, swigged whiskey, and squinted at speakers standing on tree stumps. Theirs is a tale of ink-stained editors in cluttered newspaper offices churning out partisan copy and of men pondering deals and pledges in the smoke-filled rooms of hotels and meeting halls. The Rise of Andrew Jackson is, in sum, an eye-opening account of the first instance of deliberate image-building and myth-making in American history-of nothing less than the birth of modern politics.Eventually, Jackson's supporters would be called Jacksonian Democrats and their movement would be labeled Jacksonian Democracy, giving the impression that it arose from an ethos espoused by the man himself. Yet as the Heidlers indelibly show, that was just another trick of the men trying to harness the movement, who saw in Jackson an opportunity not so much for helping the little man but for their own personal revenge against the genteel politicos of their day.

The Reckless Club

By Beth Vrabel
Authors:
Beth Vrabel
On the last day of middle school, five kids who couldn't be more different commit separate pranks, each sure they won't be caught and they can't get in trouble. They're wrong. As punishment, they each have to volunteer one beautiful summer day-the last one before school-at Northbrook Retirement and Assisted Living Home, where they'll push creamed carrots into toothless mouths, perform the world's most pathetic skit in front of residents who won't remember it anyway, hold gnarled hands of peach fuzzed old ladies who relentlessly push hard candies, and somehow forge a bond with each other that has nothing to do with what they've done and everything to do with who they're becoming. All the action takes place in the course of this one day, with each chapter one hour of that day, as the five kids reveal what they've done, why they did it, and what they're going to do now.

A Rabble of Dead Money

By Charles R. Morris
Authors:
Charles R. Morris
The Great Crash of 1929 violently disrupted the United States' confident march toward becoming the world's superpower. The suddenness of the cataclysm and the long duration of the collapse scarred generations of Americans. A Rabble of Dead Money is a lucid and fast-paced account that pulls together the intricate threads of policy, ideology, international hatreds, and sheer cantankerousness that finally pushed the world economy over the brink.Award-winning writer Charles R. Morris anchors his narrative in America while fully sketching the poisonous political atmosphere of postwar Europe. 1920s America was the embodiment of the modern age-cars, electricity, credit, radio, movies. Breakneck growth presaged a serious recession by the decade's end, but not a depression. It took heroic financial mismanagement, a glut-induced global collapse in agricultural prices, and a self-inflicted crash in world trade to produce the Great Depression.Vividly told and deeply researched, A Rabble of Dead Money anatomizes history's greatest economic catastrophe-and draws its lessons for the present.
