The aviators. The Amtrak. The ice cream cones. The memes. Few politicians are as iconic, or as beloved, as Joe Biden. Now, in The Book of Joe, Biden fans will finally have the definitive look at America's favorite vice president-and what he can teach us. Structured around key moments in Biden's life and career-and filled with Biden-isms like "That's a bunch of malarkey" and "I may be Irish, but I'm not stupid"-this blend of biography, advice, and humor will reveal the experiences that forged Joe Biden, and the lessons we can use in our own lives. Along the way, listeners will also encounter fun asides about his love of muscle cars, his most endearing gaffes, his bromance with President Obama, and much more. Yet beneath the memorable Biden-isms, the book will reveal an inspirational story of a man who keeps "getting back up." We need this right now. Much as Biden has come back from both professional missteps and personal heartbreaks, sometimes we all have to get back up and fight. Given Biden's reputation as a decent, plainspoken, patriotic statesman of integrity, this entertaining and practical book will be both a celebration of great political figure and an essential guide to creating the America he believes in so dearly.Show more
n entertaining look at the life and wisdom of Alexander Hamilton, the Founding Father who mastered the arts of wit, war, and wealth, long before becoming the subject of the runaway Broadway hit Hamilton: An American Musical. Two centuries after his death, Alexander Hamilton is shining once more under the world’s spotlight—and we need him now more than ever. Hamilton was a self-starter. Scrappy. Orphaned as a child, he came to America with nothing but a code of honor and a hunger to work. He then went on to help win the Revolutionary War and ratify the Constitution, create the country’s financial system, charm New York’s most eligible ladies, and land his face on our $10 bill. The ultimate underdog, he combined a reckless, renegade spirit with a much-needed dose of American optimism. As he made his mark on history, Hamilton also mastered the arts of wit, war, and wealth. He died before he could teach us these lessons, but Alexander Hamilton’s Guide to Life unlocks his core principles—intended for anyone interested in success, romance, money, or dueling. They include: · Speak with Authority Even If You Have None (Career) · Seduce with Your Strengths (Romance) · Find Time for the Quills and the Bills (Money) · Put the Father in Founding Father (Friends & Family) · Being Right Trumps Being Popular (Leadership) For history buffs and pop-culture addicts alike, this mix of biography, humor, and advice offers a fresh take on a nearly forgotten Founding Father, and will spark a revolution in your own life.Show more
