WHY SCIENCE DOES NOT DISPROVE GOD

By a renowned science writer, a much-needed, clear-eyed presentation of the fact that faith in God and empirical science are by no means mutually exclusive. A must-read for educated believers. Has our knowledge of current science indeed disproved the existence of God? Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Lawrence Krauss, highly esteemed scientists and writers all posit that we have no choice but to accept that the creation of the universe came out of nothing. Amir Aczel, himself a mathematician, physicist and much published author, disagrees and demonstrates in multiple ways that science has as yet in no way provided definitive proof that the assumption of a Creator must be false. To nail down this thesis, Aczel offers brilliant and incisive analyses of the theories and findings of such titans as Albert Einstein, Roger Penrose, Alan Guth, and Charles Darwin, all of whose major breakthroughs without question leave open the possibility and even the strong likelihood of a Creator. Aczel also lucidly discourses on arcane aspects of physics and shows that quantum theory, the anthropic principle, the fine-tuned dance of protons and quarks, the existence of anti-matter and the theory of parallel universes also all fail to disprove a Creator. Amir Aczel earned his PhD in mathematics from UC Berkeley. He is perhaps best known for FERMAT’S LAST THEOREM, a book published in 22 languages. In 2012, he was awarded a Sloan Foundation grant; in 2004, he was awarded the presigous John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship. From 2005 to 2007, Aczel was a visiting scholar in the history of science at Harvard University. He is currently a research fellow in the history of science at Boston University. He also writes for Discover Magazine online, regularly publishes in the Scientific American and has written science pieces for the New York Times and Wall Street Journal. William Morrow

Set in the world of high-stakes poker and underground gambling, Molly Bloom reveals how she built one of the most exclusive, high stakes underground poker games in the world - an insider’s story of excess and danger, glamour and greed. Starting out as a cocktail waitress, Molly Bloom formed the most elite poker game in Hollywood—she was its mistress, its lion tamer, its agent, and its oxygen. Everyone wanted in, but few were invited to the table. Hundreds of millions of dollars were won and lost at her table. Staged in palatial suites, celebrities, business moguls, and millionaires flocked to Molly’s table. She flew privately, dined at exquisite restaurants, hobnobbed with the heads of Hollywood studios, was courted by handsome leading men, and was privy to the world’s most delicious gossip, until it all came crashing down around her. Things went very bad when she tried to create a similar situation with Wall Street types in New York, and lost everything. MOLLY’S GAME delivers Ben Mezrich style storytelling mixed with an insider’s look at how one of the biggest poker games in the world was built from the ground up, how it was lost, and what she learned in the process. !t Books

CARNIVORE: A Memoir by One of the Deadliest American Soldiers of All Time

The memoir of perhaps the deadliest American ground soldier of all time: a commander turned sniper who survived the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan—and late-stage cancer. As commander of the “Carnivore”—the most lethal Bradley Fighting Vehicle of the Iraq War—Dillard Johnson was at the forefront of the 2003 invasion. Awarded a Silver Star with Valor for his heroic efforts to save his crew, he was personally responsible for 2,000 confirmed enemy kills. But surviving the enemy was only the beginning. Johnson would use the intensity, focus, and humor that kept him alive on the battlefield to fight stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma—which developed from the radiation poisoning he suffered discharging 5,000 uranium rounds in combat. Despite learning he had a 1 in 4 chance of survival, Johnson made a miraculous recovery—and then returned to Iraq for a second combat tour as an Army sniper. He is officially credited with 121 snipers kills, believed to be the most ever by a U.S. Army sniper and second only (across all branches) to Chris Kyle. In CARNIVORE, this decorated hero tells his amazing story. Funny, exciting, and insightful, it is a story only one man can tell. SFC Dillard Johnson, U.S. Army (Ret.), earned a Silver Star, a Bronze Star, four Purple Hearts, Presidential Unit Citation, Meritorious Service Medal, six Army Commendation Medals, seven Army Achievement Medals, and numerous other awards.  James Tarr is a contributing editor for both Handguns and Rifle Shooter magazines.

LOVE ILLUMINATED

Love is the thing. Love wakes us up in the morning and can send us to bed each night with worry and anxiety. But we all want it.

BLOOD FEUD: The Clintons vs. The Obamas

Former editor-in-chief of the The New York Times Magazine Edward Klein--author of the #1 New York Times bestselling blockbuster The Amateur--reports on President Obama’s activist agenda for his second term. In a masterpiece of political reporting, Klein delivers an astonishing exposé on our nation’s 44th President, and the activist agenda his administration plans for his second term. As the head of one of the most secretive White Houses in recent history, Obama, Klein reveals, presides over a deep network of liberal elites that seek to drive radical, damaging policies into law before he leaves office. Relying on sweeping research and interviews with closely guarded individuals, Klein breaks down the confusing torrent of national news into a sensational and wholly fact-based account of Obama’s amateurish leadership, and the cast of true-believers that collude to push his liberal platform.

DEAL WITH THE DEVIL: The FBI's Secret Thirty-Year Relationship with a Mafia Killer

When do the crimes of a Mafia informant outweigh the benefits of his cooperation with law enforcement? This scrupulously investigated tale (Lance pored over more than 1,150 pages of previously secret FBI files) will have true crime fans on the edge of their seats. - PW Starred review

In the annals of modern organized crime, there is no story more violent, colorful, or troubling than that of New York’s Scarpa family. In DEAL WITH THE DEVIL award-winning, investigative reporter Peter Lance draws on three decades and 1150 pages of previously unpublished FBI reports—and exclusive new interviews—to chronicle the eye-opening careers of Gregory Scarpa and his son Greg Junior: men who were engaged for nearly half a century in a dangerous clandestine alliance with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, while brazenly pursuing their own violent criminal activities. Lance traces the history of Colombo crime family killer Greg Scarpa Sr., known as “The Killing Machine,” who for years was a Top Echelon Informant to the FBI. In forty-two years of murder and racketeering—he stopped counting after 50 homicides—he did only 30 days in jail thanks to his relationship with the Feds. DEAL WITH THE DEVIL peels back the layers on that relationship, which a trial judge later called “a deal with the devil,” and traces Scarpa Sr.’s career, from his earliest days as an enforcer hired by the FBI to intervene in the Mississippi Burning case, to his role openly informing on Joe Colombo in the 1960s and early 1970s, his high-profile robberies and hijacking cases; his discontinuation as an informant in 1975; and—most dramatically—his reopening by swaggering, controversial FBI agent Lin DeVecchio in 1980. In the twelve years that followed, Scarpa and his son, Greg Jr., committed or ordered 25 separate murders while enjoying the status of DeVecchio’s trusted informant. DEAL WITH THE DEVIL contains fascinating, all-new accounts of dozens of unsolved murders, and also takes the story beyond the AIDS-related death of Greg Sr. in prison in 1994, to detail Greg Jr.’s role in uncovering evidence against WTC bomber Ramzi Yousef and informing on Oklahoma City bomber Terry Nichols, both fellow inmates at the Supermax facility in Colorado. Finally, Lance traces how the FBI’s DeVecchio was indicted on four counts of murder in 2007 based on evidence (from Lance and others) of his relationship with Scarpa Sr., which DA Charles Hynes called “the most stunning example of official corruption that I have ever seen”—only to have those charges thrown out after one witness’s credibility was questioned. DEAL WITH THE DEVIL is a work of eye-opening investigative journalism that reads like a Scorsese movie. Peter Lance, a five-time Emmy Award-winning journalist, is the groundbreaking 1000 YEARS FOR REVENGE, COVER UP, and TRIPLE CROSS. He is a former correspondent for ABC News and has covered hundreds of stories worldwide for 20/20, Nightline, and World News Tonight. Among his other awards are the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Prize and the Sevellon Brown Award from the Associated Press Managing Editor’s Association. William Morrow

Menzies, Gavin and Hudson, Ian



WHO DISCOVERED AMERICA?: The Untold History of Peopling in America

Greatly expanding on his blockbuster 1421, historian Gavin Menzies uncovers the complete untold history of how mankind came to the Americas--exploding the “land bridge” theory, as well as Columbus’s “discovery,” with his new revelations that various global civilizations were making transoceanic voyages 130,000 years ago. With meticulous research and an adventurer’s spirit, Menzies has uncovered astounding new evidence that calls into question everything about mankind’s peopling of the American continents - from theories of ancient man’s initial migration there to Columbus’s fateful voyage. Traveling to the far-flung reaches of the earth, Menzies offers a revolutionary new alternative to the “Beringia” theory of how the human race crossed a land bridge connecting Asia and North America during the last Ice Age; in truth, ancient seafaring voyages from China, Korea, and Japan brought travelers to the Americas thousands of years prior. WHO DISCOVERED AMERICA? is a fascinating new account with astonishing implications for the history of all mankind. Gavin Menzies is the bestselling author of 1421: The Year China Discovered America and 1434: The Year Chinese Ignited the Renaissance and THE LOST EMPIRE OF ATLANTIS. His ideas have been profiled in the New York Times Magazine and Wall Street Journal, and he has lectured at the Library of Congress, Royal Geographic Society, National Maritime Museum, and other prestigious venues. He lives in London, England. William Morrow

THE TRIDENT: The Forging and Reforging of a Navy SEAL Leader

A Navy SEAL’s highly-charged account of his combat missions in Iraq and his miraculous recovery from wounds that might have killed him—if it were not for his grit and the devotion of his wife and family. Former Lieutenant Jason Redman had a legendary career as a SEAL, from 1995-2013, and was deployed to Columbia, Peru, Afghanistan and Iraq, where he served as a team assault force commander. In western Iraq alone, he conducted forty capture-kill missions with his men and captured more than 120 Al Qaida insurgent leaders and fighters. But the high-stakes of combat are only part of his story. In September 2007, while leading a mission against a key senior Al Qaida commander in Iraq, Redman’s team was ambushed. He was gravely wounded by an enemy machine gun at point-blank range. Shot twice in the arm and once in the face, Redman nearly died on the battlefield. During the intense recovery that followed—a process that took years and included 37 surgeries and 190 hours under general anesthesia—Redman earned national media attention when he posted a sign on his door at Bethesda Naval Medical Center, telling all those who entered to not “feel sorry for my wounds.” THE TRIDENT is an intense and unforgettable story of a man’s determination to overcome adversity no matter the cost and the evolution of a modern warrior, husband, and father. Former Lieutenant Jason Redman spent 11 years as an enlisted Navy SEAL. For his bravery in battle, he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal with Valor, the Purple Heart, the Navy Commendation Medal, Joint Service Achievement Medal, Navy Achievement Medal (five awards), and the Combat Action Ribbon (two awards). After being severely wounded in Iraq while acting as Assault Force Commander, Redman returned to active duty with the Navy SEALs, retiring in 2013. He has founded a non-profit corporation called Wounded Wear, which provides clothing tailored for wounded warriors. John R. Bruning is the author or co-author of seventeen nonfiction and military history books, including the critically acclaimed Outlaw Platoon with Sean Parnell. William Morrow
