One To Remember by Ken Reid (hockey fans this is for you!)

One To Remember by Ken Reid is a fantastic hockey book!

Though I'm not a sports fan, I love sports stories. 

I do love the Philadelphia Flyers though but am not an AVID fan. 

This book is inspiring, engaging, full of ups and downs, but mostly it's just a reminder of dreams coming true, and dreams being put to the side and picking yourself up to forge new dreams. 

A must for any hockey fan, but honestly, this book is for anyway. Written so well (like a puck floating effortlessly on the ice). 

Thanks to NetGalley and the  Publisher for this ARC. 

Publishes in Sep 2020.

Slanted by Sharyl Attkisson

 Slanted, by Sharyl Attkisson is a frightening look at what  media has become in the last 20 or so years, with many of the influence makers roaring onto the scene within the last 12 years.   

We've become so lazy, that we allow thinking to be done for us. Facts are decided by invisible unknown fact checkers.

Personal narratives are more relevant than the who what where when why and have 3 sources to back up your article.  

In Slanted, Attkisson teaches us how to recognize propagandists, resist the persistence of false media narratives, and who is behind the driving forces behind today's dangerous blend of facts and opinion. 

A must read for every parent, every student.

Unlike most politicians and academicians, she understands the true greatness of America, and sounds an alarm of caution if our nation continues down its current path that wants to abolish  our founding principles and values.This book should be read by everyone. America needs a reality check and this is a great place to start."
