Mistakes Men Make By Byron Harmon
A true player never loses his game. But what happens when the rules are suddenly changed? Former NFL star and perpetual playboy Eric Swift is tackling the Big Apple -- giving 100% to his new job as a TV sportscaster and 200% to New York City's throbbing nightlife and beautiful women. Even Eric's ultraconservative coanchor, Eden Alexander, can't resist his charms. But when Eden agrees to a date, sHe insists on choosing the location: the Black Baptist Church Convention, to witness revolutionary rapper-turned-preacher Reverend Francois. Eric might have missed the reverend's message, but when it comes to wooing Eden he doesn't miss a beat: Soon he's feigning his faith...while secretly indulging in sin on the side.

Presidential Courage By Michael R. Beschloss

From the acclaimed bestselling author of The Conquerors Michael Beschloss has brought us a brilliantly readable and inspiring saga about crucial times in America's history when a courageous President dramatically changed the future of the United States. With surprising new sources and a dazzling command of history and human character, Beschloss brings to life these flawed, complex men -- and their wives, families, friends and foes. Never have we had a more intimate, behind-the-scenes view of Presidents coping with the supreme dilemmas of their lives. You will be in the room with the private George Washington, braving threats o

F impeachment and assassination to make peace with England. John Adams, incurring his party's "unrelenting hatred" by refusing to fight France and warning his enemies, "Great is the guilt of an unnecessary war." Andrew Jackson, in a death struggle against the corrupt Bank of the United States. Abraham Lincoln, risking his Presidency to insist that slaves be freed. Beschloss also shows us Theodore Roosevelt, taunting J. P. Morgan and the Wall Street leaders who dominated his party. Franklin Roosevelt, defying the isolationists -- and maybe the law -- to stop Adolf Hitler. Harry Truman, risking a walkout by top officials to recognize a Jewish state. John Kennedy, the belated champion of civil rights, complaining that he has cost himself a second term. And finally, two hundred years after Washington, Ronald Reagan, irking some of his oldest backers to seek an end to the Cold War. As Beschloss shows in this gripping and important book, none of these Presidents was eager to incur ridicule, vilification or threats of political destruction and even assassination. But in the end, bolstered by friends and family, hidden private beliefs and, sometimes, religious faith, each ultimately proved himself to be, in Andrew Jackson's words, "born for the storm." .
