<b>#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER</b><br />  <br /> “[<i>Collusion</i>] is invaluable in collating the overwhelming evidence of a web of relationships between the Kremlin, Trump and members of Trump’s circle.” —Michelle Goldberg, <i>The New York Times</i><br />  <br /> <b>An explosive exposé that lays out the Trump administration’s ties to Moscow, and Russia’s decades-in-the-making political game to upend American democracy.<br /> </b> <br /> December 2016. Luke Harding, the <i>Guardian</i> reporter and former Moscow bureau chief, quietly meets former MI6 officer Christopher Steele in a London pub to discuss President-elect Donald Trump’s Russia connections. A month later, Steele’s now-famous dossier sparks what may be the biggest scandal of the modern era. The names of the Americans involved are well-known—Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Jared Kushner, George Papadopoulos, Carter Page—but here Harding also shines a light on powerful Russian figures like Aras Agalarov, Natalia Veselnitskaya, and Sergey Kislyak, whose motivations and instructions may have been coming from the highest echelons of the Kremlin.<br />  <br /> Drawing on new material and his expert understanding of Moscow and its players, Harding takes the reader through every bizarre and disquieting detail of the “Trump-Russia” story—an event so huge it involves international espionage, off-shore banks, sketchy real estate deals, the Miss Universe pageant, mobsters, money laundering, poisoned dissidents, computer hacking, and the most shocking election in American history.

She was best known for the Arthurian fiction novel THE MISTS OF AVALON and for her very popular Darkover series.<br /><br />She was also a monster.<br /><br />THE LAST CLOSET: The Dark Side of Avalon is a brutal tale of a harrowing childhood.

<i>Work Less, Make More</i> is a dense delivery of solid systems and sane advice. It's not 80/20, it's 80/20 squared. Every few pages, James punches you in the face with an instantly actionable hack.<br /><i><b>~ Perry Marshall, Author of 80/20 Sales & Marketing, Ultimate Guide to Google AdWords, and Evolution 2.0</b></i><br /><br />In <i>Work Less, Make More</i>, James proves that keeping your business strategy simple produces far greater success (and happiness) than if you focus only on 'hustling'.<br /><i><b>~ John Reese</b></i><br /><br />James possesses a 'no-holds barred' approach to business which frees him to think outside ingrained assumptions regarding one's current realities and future opportunities. His candid advice in <i>Work Less, Make More</i> provides bold and practical wisdom for any person, of any vocation, who wants to lift the lid on their creative potential and move into unexplored territories of freedom and opportunity. <br /><i><b>~ Ian Freestone</b></i><br /><br />I found <i>Work Less, Make More</i>--part memoir, part how-to guide--to be truly extraordinary! James brings his unique analytical insights about how to think regarding complex issues in business. He describes the systems that he has designed to shape both meaningful work and relationships,as well as, a life worth living. Now isn't that what we all want? So many authors attempt to "motivate" you,without giving any real instruction. I find that James provides both. Every page is full of so many principles, wisdom and insights--and I love how James incorporates his history and his life in such a thoughtful way. His book has already changed how I think about making decisions in my life and in my business. It's a must read. Highly recommended.<br /><i><b>~ Tim Papadopoulos</b></i><br /><br />----<br /><br />In 2006, whilst working in a full-time job, James Schramko wrote this in a notebook:<br /><br /><i>MY GOALS … create automated income so that I am independently wealthy and enjoy my life passionately.</i><br /><br />Within three years, he’d built his own business and achieved those goals. At which point he set about helping his coaching clients do the same. Leveraging his knowledge and experience, they were able to make more money while reducing their work hours. Significantly.<br /><br /><b>This freed them up to spend more time living.</b><br /><br />It’s easy to think working less and making more is something available only to a blessed few. But James has proven over and over again that this is not the case. All you require is:<br /><br />• An open mind,<br />• The ability to focus on what’s important,<br />• An understanding of business models, and<br />• A willingness to challenge your assumptions.<br /><br />Work Less, Make More will break down all the barriers standing between you and the above. <br /><br /><b>It will teach you how to effectively leverage yourself, your team and your business via:</b><br /><br />• Increasing your personal effectiveness<br />• Planning and goalsetting<br />• Learning focus and the power of 64:4<br />• Building a team<br />• Creating an offer that converts<br />• Leveraging the Profit Formula to boost cash flow<br />• Understanding the importance of Customer Lifetime Value<br />• Choosing the right business model<br />• Removing compromise from your life<br /><br /><b>This book is for you if you are:</b><br /><br />• A business owner (big or small)<br />• Currently in a job with a hard ceiling on how much you can earn<br />• Overworked and underpaid<br />• Stressed out and missing out on precious time with family and friends.<br /><br />If you want to build a business that gives you financial peace of mind while allowing you to enjoy life NOW, not later ... Work Less, Make More will get you on your way. It will help ensure the business you're building will work for you, not the other way around.

<b>Shortlisted for the 2018 Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Nonfiction</b><br /><b><b><br /></b>From the legendary whistle-blower who revealed the Pentagon Papers, an eyewitness expos</b><b>é</b><b> of the dangers of America's Top Secret, seventy-year-long nuclear policy that--chillingly--continues to this day.</b><b><br /> </b><br />Here, for the first time, former high level defense analyst Daniel Ellsberg reveals his shocking first-hand account of America's nuclear program in the 1960s. From the remotest air bases in the Pacific Command, where he discovered that the authority to initiate use of nuclear weapons was widely delegated, to the secret plans for general nuclear war under Eisenhower, which, if executed, would cause the near-extinction of humanity, Ellsberg shows that the legacy of this most dangerous arms buildup in the history of civilization--and its proposed renewal under the Trump administration--threatens our very survival. No other insider with high level access has written so candidly of the nuclear strategy of the late Eisenhower and early Kennedy years, and nothing has fundamentally changed since that era.<br /> <br />Framed as a memoir--a chronicle of madness in which Ellsberg acknowledges participating--this gripping expose reads like a thriller and offers feasible steps we can take to dismantle the existing "doomsday machine" and avoid nuclear catastrophe, returning Ellsberg to his role as whistleblower. <i>The Doomsday Machine</i> is thus a real-life Dr. Strangelove story and an ultimately hopeful--and powerfully important--book about not just our country, but the future of the world.
