CITY OF SIN is a deep dive into the American heart of darkness, a much-needed outing of a society that allows its most vulnerable to be trampled by unchecked desire and greed. Brian Joseph has done a remarkable and undaunted job of investigative journalism. Michael Connelly, best-selling author and executive producer of Bosch CITY OF SIN tells the inside story of how the biggest sex trafficking investigation in Las Vegas history careened off the rails, ending law enforcement careers and harming hundreds of vulnerable women, but resulted in its target, Mally Mall, a Hip Hop music producer who has worked with stars ranging from Drake to Justin Bieber, receiving only 33 months in prison. This layered saga spans more than a decade, and incorporates an array of captivating characters, including world-famous musicians, violent pimps, unscrupulous journalists, and crooked cops. It takes readers from the streets of Las Vegas to its most exclusive hotel suites, from police raids to newsrooms, and from recording studios to one of the biggest party pads in all of Sin City, complete with a veritable zoo of exotic animals. Drawing on confidential records and exclusive interviews, CITY OF SIN opens with Angela Delgado, a Houston woman who gets sucked into Mally’s sprawling empire and becomes one of his elite “priority girls.” The focus then shifts to law enforcement’s investigation of Mally, which is hopelessly mismanaged. While Vice Sgt. Don Hoier watches in horror as police officers and then later FBI agents trip all over themselves, Mally’s star steadily rises as he produces bigger and bigger records and lands a role on a weekly VH1 reality show. CITY OF SIN sheds light on domestic sex trafficking and American society’s disregard for its victims, and the price of fame and celebrity and the intersection of Hip Hop and pimping. It will appeal to readers of true crime, current events, pop culture, even politics. Long-time investigative reporter Brian Joseph is uniquely positioned to tackle this ambitious story as he investigated sex trafficking in Las Vegas for more than two years for the Las Vegas Review-Journal and has developed countless sources in this hard-to-penetrate subculture.
We Called It A War is Sargent Shriver’s first-hand account of leading President Johnson’s War on Poverty. Written on the cusp of the 1970s, the manuscript was recently rediscovered among Shriver’s personal papers and subsequently edited by long-time friend and law partner, David Birenbaum. The book recounts Shriver’s role in translating President Johnson’s audacious pledge to end poverty into a working set of social programs that continue to uplift and empower communities across the United States today.
In leading this effort, Shriver was tasked with drafting the requisite legislation, ushering it through a skeptical Congress, creating the Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO), and recruiting the talented anti-poverty warriors who would take the OEO from concept to implementation.
Shriver’s words reveal a public administrator skilled at creating major social policy; a global citizen driven by his Catholic faith and commitment to social justice; a principled pragmatist who successfully executed grand ideas; a social entrepreneur whose skeptical approach to bureaucracy enabled him to liberate the creative energies of the diverse individuals who collaborated with him; and a politician who earned the trust and respect of his adversaries.
Shriver’s anti-poverty efforts continues to resonate. Virtually all of the War on Poverty programs, many of them conceived personally by Shriver, continue to deliver tangible, consequential benefits to millions of people in all stages of life. These programs include Head start, Community Action, Legal Services, Job Corps, Americorps VISTA, Foster Grandparents, Upward Bound, and Neighborhood Health Services. Fifty years on, Shriver’s words remind us that to achieve equal opportunity and justice for all of our sisters and brothers, we must again create an environment that nurtures bold ideas and empowers decisive, community-based action.
ESPN's Tim MacMahon examines the pressure of building around a prodigy in the NBA, through the prism of the Dallas Mavericks' Luka Doncic.
THE WONDER BOY chronicles Doncic's journey from the most hyped European teen prospect in basketball history to a generational NBA star -- and all the madness that ensues as the Mavericks attempt to avoid blowing the golden opportunity of having a young, perennial MVP candidate as the franchise centerpiece. The book digs behind the scenes of the drama and dysfunction in Dallas during the early years of Doncic's career, when owner Mark Cuban's front office focused as much on internal power struggles as actually improving the basketball team. And it covers the new regime's effort to earn Doncic's loyalty, which requires putting the ruthless competitor in position to win. Readers will learn never-before-reported details about the blockbuster deal for Kristaps Porzingis that blew up in the Mavs' faces, the divorces with coach Rick Carlisle and GM Donnie Nelson, the series of mistakes that led to Jalen Brunson leaving after a run to the Western Conference finals, the new pairing with mercurial Kyrie Irving, roster moves that could have been made and much more.
As the clock ticks on the Mavs' search for a co-star, THE WONDER BOY dives into how the Mavericks have handled a dilemma every NBA team would love to have.

Love Your Neighbor makes the case for capitalism as the only system that can end poverty, solve intractable
crises, and increase human flourishing.
Love Your Neighbor builds on the National Best Seller Flight of the Buffalo by Ralph Stayer with James
Belasco. Ralph's story and experience transformed the business world. It offers a bold and straightforward
plan for rethinking leadership—still taught in business schools and leadership seminars worldwide. Finally,
after decades of more experience, Love Your Neighbor delivers the sequel that readers demanded. Love Your
Neighbor is the fruit of that patience—and thirty years of reflection and leadership.
As the longtime CEO of Johnsonville Foods, Ralph learned to let his workers lead. Love Your Neighbor shows
that the real secret behind Johnsonville's success was a conscious decision to align the company's practices
with God's plan for human flourishing.
Love Your Neighbor defends and champions capitalism which continues to be under attack in America—and
why faith-informed capitalism is the only vehicle that can bring prosperity and purpose to everyone.
Love Your Neighbor goes beyond that of another pretty sermon—it's a blueprint for transformation based on
Ralph's decades of experience as one of America's most successful CEOs. It provides a moral foundation for
capitalism during a time of challenge and crisis, demonstrating its vast superiority over socialism and other fallen
economic systems. Ralph's experience at Johnsonville Foods points to a proud and unapologetic conviction in
capitalism that serves God, builds strong communities, and embodies what it means to love your neighbor.
From the bestselling author of the Love & Respect phenomenon comes a healthier way to communicate in the digital age, where one misstep can cost you everything.
Every day we are given plenty of new examples of people communicating without thinking and soon regretting it. Social media means what it says: it's social! Our methods of communication today allow for something to potentially be broadcast around the world in seconds.
Every day we have the potential of both verbal and written blunders. It makes no difference if we are talking to a stranger in a store, chatting on a cell phone with our mothers, or sending an e-mail to a coworker; we can and do miscommunicate, and people can and do get the wrong idea. When we don't pause long enough to think before speaking or writing, it commonly yields a misunderstanding and leads to a clash.
This book is about preventing misunderstandings and allowing for understanding. From external examples to internal turmoil, Before You Hit Send is about the four things we must think through before communicating. In all things we wish to say or write, we would be wise to ask ourselves,
- Is it true?
- Is it kind?
- Is it necessary?
- Is it clear?
Learn to ask and answer these four questions honestly, thinking wisely before you speak. Uncover why we consciously and subconsciously get into communication disasters to begin with. Through this enlightening guide, you may be surprised what you discover about yourself.
