Summary:

"Vinny tells his roller-coaster story with passion and humor, inviting all of us to join his bicycle ride through the many winding paths of his life. Coming out, growing up, serving his country and fighting for others against all odds: This journey gives hope to anyone on the front line of our equality struggle." Lt. Dan Choi West Point Graduate, Iraq War Veteran and Infantry Officer, honorably discharged for telling the truth and starting a group of West Point LGBT Graduates. An accomplished, aging man is preparing for yet another dream-to conduct the first known bicycle-book tour (which will require peddling both miles and books.) Who will believe 2,500 miles is possible for a man with gravely serious medical issues-at age sixty-five? Witnessing the lifetime spiritual journey of Vinny Pirelli, starting at age six with his very first bicycle, you track his development of being the only boy among many siblings, through growing pains of adolescence and teen years. He struggles with, and represses homosexual tendencies, putting his emotions into bicycling and writing songs. As a young adult, Vinny proves successful at whatever he attempts-even in building a family with the first girl he had sexual feelings for. As a ten-year Army leader, he learns hard lessons of losing friendships, love and trust, with the ultimate betrayal of his own father. J.V. Petretta is a graduate of U. of Maryland, European Division. He is a ten-year U.S. Army Veteran with three overseas tours, including Vietnam. After his honorable discharge, he received a Meritorious Service Medal for distinguished service as 1st Armored Division's Nuclear Control Chief. In addition to earning numerous business accolades, he organized and conducted a 5,000 mile bicycle tour in 1995, bringing critical awareness and funding for AIDS. Author's proceeds from the sale of this book will be divided among selected cycling and LGBT advocate groups, and his own future work in Africa. Contact: [email protected]

Summary:

Eddie Montgomery came from a very poor family, and Vicki came from a family of modest means. They married at 18 years of age when she became pregnant. Eddie had dyslexia and was lucky to graduate from high school, but he had two great attributes. He was blessed with a wonderful personality, and he was very good-looking. Vicki was a drop dead gorgeous girl and developed excellent business management skills. The couple bought Victory Ford, a large dealership in Omaha, Nebraska, when Eddie was 25 years old, making him the youngest dealer in Ford Motor Company's history. Using a technique they discovered purely by accident, Eddie and Vicki developed Victory Ford into the number one Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury dealership in the United States. And the way they did it was both unique and fascinating. This is the story of a young couple-unafraid of trying new things-who are determined to overcome their humble beginnings. Eddie and Vicki's experience in the "swinging" lifestyle brings a titillating element to the novel and offers an exciting twist to their success story, reminding the reader that not every dream is impossible.

Summary:

When Reagan and Gorbachev sat down in Reykjavik in 1986, George Shultz said that it was “the poker game with the highest stakes ever played.” It was the last time the world had a chance to do away entirely with nuclear weapons. This is the behind-the-scenes story of this remarkable summit conference. An Impossible Dream is the first exploration of recently-available archives of both sides—top-secret archives of the Kremlin, the personal papers of Gorbachev, as well as Reagan's archives. These chronicles, personal diaries and previously classified memoranda are deeply enriched by the personal reminiscences of many of the key players at this era. But above all, the stage is set with a personal and exclusive preface from Gorbachev himself. An Impossible Dream is the deeply important examination of the present and the future. The hazards of the nuclear age are legion, from aging weapons to new software that is vulnerable to terrorist attacks. With elements of the Trump administration considering a unilateral abrogation of the intermediate range nuclear missile (INF) treaty, the roots of which were laid at Reykjavik. Serina lays out this pivotal moment in history clearly and dramatically in this landmark work, as the world stands poised on the edge of a potential new arms race.

Summary:

The Redress Movement refers to efforts to obtain the restitution of civil rights, an apology, and/or monetary compensation from the U.S. government during the six decades that followed the World War II mass removal and confinement of Japanese Americans. Early campaigns emphasized the violation of constitutional rights, lost property, and the repeal of anti-Japanese legislation. 1960s activists linked the wartime detention camps to contemporary racist and colonial policies. In the late 1970s three organizations pursued redress in court and in Congress, culminating in the passage of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, providing a national apology and individual payments of $20,000 to surviving detainees.

Summary:

In 2006, a previously unknown Irish technology company by the name of Steorn created headlines globally when it took out a full-page ad in The Economist, in which it claimed to have made the scientific breakthrough of this – or any other – century: perpetual motion, nothing less than a complete and immediate solution to the global energy crisis. The investment money poured in, with some of Ireland’s most respected entrepreneurs and institutions getting on board, but the demonstration of their perpetual-motion machine was a spectacular failure. So how did so many well-meaning and otherwise sensible people get things so desperately, absurdly wrong? The story begins with a malfunctioning CCTV system and ends with an exploding battery, and it drives home Ireland’s frenzied state of mind during the Celtic Tiger years.

Summary:

Andrew Allan is an author of picture books for adults: short, illustrated stories told in a traditional picture book format that deal with themes and situations indicative to grown-up life. Relationships, pursuing one's goals and dreams, dealing with difficult people and situations are just a few examples of themes that he explores in his stories. The Impossible Dream Killer, the second in Allan's series of adult picture books, is a story about an evil dream killer who preys on the aspirations of children in their sleep. It is a funny, gloomy narrative that reminds us of those voices that constantly put down the dreams and goals of others... though Allan has something else in store for the Dream Killer and his prey in this book.

Summary:

We live in disturbed times. Seemingly more now than at any time in the previous five decades, the planet appears riven. Against this troubling global background, An Impossible Dream traces author Peter Campbells six-week, eight-hundred-kilometre long walk along the Camino de Santiago across northern Spain, capturing what he saw and what he felt during the journey. Using the Camino as a backdrop, Campbell looks back at the cultural and religious conflicts of the Iberian Peninsula in the Middle Ages, and he reflects on the history of the Crusades, the Knights Templar, the legendary El Cid, and much more, drawing comparisons between now and times past. Through vivid descriptions and introspective reflection, An Impossible Dream portrays the physical, emotional, and psychological challenges Campbell faced as he undertook this epic walk, the relationships formed along the way, and the spiritual questions asked and answered. He considers his own conflicts and intolerances, and he offers an insightful reminder for anyone who has already walked the Camino, and a fascinating perspective for those who have yet to undertake that journey. He tells a story of a walk through lifea life lived, questions asked, and lessons learned.

Summary:

Contemporary debate over the legacy of racial integration in the United States rests between two positions that are typically seen as irreconcilable. On one side are those who argue that we must pursue racial integration because it is an essential component of racial justice. On the other are those who question the ideal of integration and suggest that its pursuit may damage the very population it was originally intended to liberate. In An Impossible Dream? Sharon A. Stanley shows that much of this apparent disagreement stems from different understandings of the very meaning of integration. In response, she offers a new model of racial integration in the United States that takes seriously the concerns of longstanding skeptics, including black power activists and black nationalists. Stanley reformulates integration to de-emphasize spatial mixing for its own sake and calls instead for an internal, psychic transformation on the part of white Americans and a radical redistribution of power. The goal of her vision is not simply to mix black and white bodies in the same spaces and institutions, but to dismantle white supremacy and create a genuine multiracial democracy. At the same time, however, she argues that achieving this model of integration in the contemporary United States would be extraordinarily challenging, due to the poisonous legacy of Jim Crow and the hidden, self-reinforcing nature of white privilege today. Pursuing integration against a background of persistent racial injustice might well exacerbate black suffering without any guarantee of achieving racial justice or a worthwhile form of integration. As long as the future of integration remains uncertain, its pursuit can neither be prescribed as a moral obligation nor rejected as intrinsically indefensible. In An Impossible Dream? Stanley dissects this vexing moral and political quandary.
