Wow. Such great books. More than half the books are on my favorites list... and I'm in the middle of reading "I know why the caged bird sings" - so worth the time. Desantis has brought FL to a new low.      source

Fear of Falling by Barbara Ehrenreich The book closely examines the insecurities of the American middle class in an attempt to explain its turn to the right during the last two decades of the 20th century. Worth reading. A book from 1986; still very true. #GoodRead #GoodReads      source
Blowout book cover
Corrupted Democracy, Rogue State Russia, and the Richest, Most Destructive Industry on Earth
Rachel Maddow - 2019-10-01
Goodreads Rating
Blowout exposes the dark and corrupt world of the oil-and-gas industry, revealing how it has weakened democracies, destroyed environments, and propped up authoritarian regimes. From Oklahoma City to Siberia to Equatorial Guinea, Rachel Maddow takes us on a riveting journey, highlighting the greed and incompetence of Big Oil and Gas. This book is a clarion call to stop subsidizing the wealthiest industry on earth, to fight for transparency, and to check the influence of predatory oil executives and their enablers. The stakes have never been higher: as Maddow writes, "Democracy either wins this one or disappears."

.@Maddow deserves Emmy and Pulitzer.. and more.. for her work in the interview of Lev Parnas, and her book "Blowout" - she is the best reporter. True journalist. Watched 1/14 (documents) and 1/15 (Lev Parnas Interview Part-1) shows twice. I can not wait for part-2 - on 1/16/20.      source
