Explanation of the Book:

How do we create new ways of looking at the world? Join award-winning data storyteller RJ Andrews as he pushes beyond the usual how-to, and takes you on an adventure into the rich art of informing. Creating Info We Trust is a craft that puts the world into forms that are strong and true. It begins with maps, diagrams, and charts — but must push further than dry defaults to be truly effective. How do we attract attention? How can we offer audiences valuable experiences worth their time? How can we help people access complexity? Dark and mysterious, but full of potential, data is the raw material from which new understanding can emerge. Become a hero of the information age as you learn how to dip into the chaos of data and emerge with new understanding that can entertain, improve, and inspire. Whether you call the craft data storytelling, data visualization, data journalism, dashboard design, or infographic creation — what matters is that you are courageously confronting the chaos of it all in order to improve how people see the world. Info We Trust is written for everyone who straddles the domains of data and people: data visualization professionals, analysts, and all who are enthusiastic for seeing the world in new ways. This book draws from the entirety of human experience, quantitative and poetic. It teaches advanced techniques, such as visual metaphor and data transformations, in order to create more human presentations of data. It also shows how we can learn from print advertising, engineering, museum curation, and mythology archetypes. This human-centered approach works with machines to design information for people. Advance your understanding beyond by learning from a broad tradition of putting things “in formation” to create new and wonderful ways of opening our eyes to the world. Info We Trust takes a thoroughly original point of attack on the art of informing. It builds on decades of best practices and adds the creative enthusiasm of a world-class data storyteller. Info We Trust is lavishly illustrated with hundreds of original compositions designed to illuminate the craft, delight the reader, and inspire a generation of data storytellers.

Explanation of the Book:

“Meet a young man named Odd . . . who helps the dead get even." From the infinite imagination of #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz comes the suspenseful graphic-novel debut of a natural-born hero with a supernatural twist. Odd Thomas is a regular nineteen-year-old with an unusual gift: the ability to see the lingering spirits of the dead. To Odd, it’s not such a big deal. And most folks in sleepy Pico Mundo, California, are much more interested in the irresistible pancakes Odd whips up at the local diner. Still, communing with the dead can be useful. Because while some spirits only want a little company . . . others want justice. When the sad specter of a very frightened boy finds its way to him, Odd vows to root out the evil suddenly infecting the sunny streets of Pico Mundo. But even with his exceptional ability–plus the local police and his pistol-packing girlfriend, Stormy, backing him–is Odd any match for a faceless stalker who’s always a step ahead . . . and determined to kill again?

Explanation of the Book:

Out of the dirt on Todd’s smelly sock came a race of miniature people who worship Todd as a god. Now, the tiny Toddlians need everyone's prayers! The Toddlians have always believed in the omnipotence of their god, twelve-year-old Todd Butroche. After all, Todd is their creator and they would not exist if it were not for him and his benevolent grossness. But when the Toddlians are confronted with a vile “red thing” (a moldy apple) and its mysterious and horrifying inhabitant (a worm!), they begin to believe Todd has forgotten all about them. There’s only one solution to the Toddlians’ problems: to find a new god! And so they decide to build a raft à la Noah’s ark in order to search for a more thoughtful deity. But who can the Toddlians turn to in their time of despair? And does Todd really not remember the miniature race generated by the dirt on his smelly sock? It will take more than divine intervention to save the Toddlians and mend their relationship with their neglectful creator.

Explanation of the Book:

Wal-Mart's mighty presence is no longer restricted to America. To the alarm of the UK retail sector, June 1999 saw Wal-Mart devour Asda. And given Wal-Mart's track record in the rest of the world, such alarm is well-founded. For instance, within seven years of Wal-Mart invading Canada and Mexico it became the largest retailer in both countries. It took less than two years for it to become the fourth largest retailer in Germany, while France and several Scandinavian countries now look destined for Wal-Mart's shopping basket. In Sam We Trust offers an exhaustive in-depth investigation into this powerful retailing empire. Bob Ortega, The Wall Street Journal's authority on Wal-Mart, goes beyond the headlines and Sam Walton's carefully crafted public image to reveal the ruthless penny-pinching manipulator behind the visionary genius. He also provides an illuminating history of retailing that includes case studies of such important Wal-Mart competitors as Sears, J.C. Penny, Price Clubs and, of course, Kmart. In Sam We Trust describes in detail not only how Wal-Mart became what it is, but also how it works today. In this new edition, Bob Ortega brings us up to date with Wal-Mart's worldwide shopping spree and gives us a unique peep behind the doors of the Asda deal and its likely impact on British retailing, shoppers and communities. In Sam We Trust provides a fascinating context for current developments: Ortega's incisive analysis of Sam Walton's controversial rise to power and the creation of the world's most successful retail business makes for a shocking yet compelling read.

Explanation of the Book:

Sean was a misunderstood individual who is attempting to comprehend and understand the real world, just like many of us do. He is also a kind being whom many have referred to as an old soul, a young person who seems much older than he actually is. His aim is to please everyone and especially those surrounding him. An example of his generosity was playing Santa Claus for as many children as he was able to physically reach. Those of whom he was unable to touch left him with nothing less than guilt. The word 'can't' was simply not part of his vocabulary. At one point in his life; however, he realized that life is not always as it seems. This concept had a profound effect on him, one which he just couldn't seem to escape. It made his mind twist and turn, just as the plot in this book. His new outlook on life consumed his every activity of daily living!Until one day when he stumbled, quite accidentally, upon an option presented to him in which he may be given the opportunity to end the earth's madness. But nothing comes without a catch, for accepting this offer may not end beneficially for those he loved dearly.Realizing there may be, in certain instances, worse occurrences than death; such as a future murderer or pedophile dying prior to having had the opportunity to continue living and committing the crimes they are destined for, he seriously considered selling his soul. After all; to better mankind, sacrifices are bound to be a part of the plan.This is the story of a conflicted soul who is torn between right and wrong while realizing that it's not always as it seems. Has this young boy experienced enough of life to possess the ability to wisely choose the unknown?

Explanation of the Book:

Eric Dregni’s great-grandfather Ellef fled Norway in 1893 when it was the poorest country in Europe. More than one hundred years later, his great-grandson traveled back to find that—mostly due to oil and natural gas discoveries—it is now the richest. The circumstances of his return were serendipitous, as the notice that Dregni won a Fulbright Fellowship to go there arrived the same week as the knowledge that his wife Katy was pregnant. Braving a birth abroad and benefiting from a remarkably generous health care system, the Dregnis’ family came full circle when their son Eilif was born in Norway. In this cross-cultural memoir, Dregni tells the hair-raising, hilarious, and sometimes poignant stories of his family’s yearlong Norwegian experiment. Among the exploits he details are staying warm in a remote grass-roofed hytte (hut), surviving a dinner of rakfisk (fermented fish) thanks to 80-proof aquavit, and identifying his great-grandfather’s house in the Lusterfjord only to find out it had been crushed by a boulder and then swept away by a river. To subsist on a student stipend, he rides the meat bus to Sweden for cheap salami with a busload of knitting pensioners. A week later, he and his wife travel to the Lofoten Islands and gnaw on klippefisk (dried cod) while cats follow them through the streets. Dregni’s Scandinavian roots do little to prepare him and his family for the year in Trondheim eating herring cakes, obeying the conformist Janteloven (Jante’s law), and enduring the mørketid (dark time). In Cod We Trust is one Minnesota family’s spirited excursion into Scandinavian life. The land of the midnight sun is far stranger than they previously thought, and their encounters show that there is much we can learn from its unique and surprising culture.

Explanation of the Book:

A highly readable account of a complex subject, In Math We Trust is all you need to find out about Bitcoin, cryptocurrency, the future of money and the journey to being your own bank. Money is the most important human invention after language. It provides tokens for the faith we have in each other and society, but that trust has been violated repeatedly throughout history by the middlemen and authorities we rely upon in order to transact with each other. Now a new kind of money promises to rescue us from these tyrants and return us to the roots of money, without relying on third-parties. Instead of putting our faith in banks and governments, we can trust math. Simon Dingle has been working with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies since 2011, designing products that make it easier to engage with this new world of money. He is also a broadcaster, writer and speaker who makes complex subjects simple for his audiences. Having led the product team at one of the world’s first Bitcoin exchanges and on other popular fintech products, Simon continues to design and invest in projects that make money more fair, this in addition to his weekly radio show that helps people with technology more generally. In this book Simon looks at the evolution of human trust that not only explains how cryptocurrencies work and the origins of Bitcoin, but how you can use these networks to take control of your own financial universe.

From the internationally bestselling author of The Marriage Lie comes a riveting exploration of grief and guilt in the wake of one family’s shocking loss. When former DC journalist Abigail Wolff attempts to rehabilitate her career, she finds herself at the heart of a shocking conspiracy involving the death of a soldier in Afghanistan. This loss has unspeakable emotional consequences for the family and as news of what happened comes to light, Abigail will stop at nothing to write the story. As she stumbles upon more and more evidence in the case, it seems there are fewer and fewer people she can trust…including her own father, a retired army general. Stunned by the revelations, she is equally surprised to find herself falling for the slain soldier’s brother, Gabe, a bitter man struggling to hold his family together. Her investigation eventually leads her to an impossible choice, one of unrelenting sacrifice to protect those she loves. Beyond the buried truths and betrayals, questions of family loyalty and redemption, Abigail’s search is, most of all, a desperate grasp to carry on—and seek hope in the impossible.

Explanation of the Book:

Today we are facing insurmountable problems because we have taken God out of our homes, schools, churches—and now our nation. Have we taken God out of our lives? Have we become too busy for God? Are we so preoccupied with the cares of this world or the things of this world that we don’t take time or make time for our God? In God We Trust is based on the fact that America started as a nation trusting God, and author B. B. Hicks goes on to look at where we are today as a nation, as a church, and as people of God. In God We Trust teaches us about how to get to know God, trust God, and turn back to God. And most importantly, it will help us learn how to stay connected to God. In God We Trust is a clarion call to the nation, as well as to the church, to turn back to God. We, as people of God, need to put first things first—and God should be first in our lives. We should perform a self-assessment to determine what are our priorities and what is first on our agenda. The Bible tells us that God is a jealous God, and he wants to be first in all things (Exodus 20:4–5). Through Jesus Christ, we can learn to put God first.

Explanation of the Book:

The thing of it is that when we go to a doctor, we put our trust in them. We assume that they are there to help us and if they can't, they will send us to someone who can. In Doc We Trust, almost as much as In God We Trust. But should we? I guess you really have to evaluate if the doctor is trustworthy-professionally trustworthy. I was naive and gullible, despite the fact that I had completed a PhD at Columbia University at the age of 27. I had a poor self-concept and after four and a half years of treatment at the hand of an abusive psychiatrist, I had become unable to function. I had spent the last two years in bed fighting a delusional obsession. There had to be a way out. Enter Dr. Harry Albert, the guardian angel who led me out of hell, gave me my life back and guided me to hold the abusive psychiatrist accountable for what he had done to me. In Doc We Trust is a true story of a tragic experience I had as a young woman in psychotherapy. I believe there is much in the story that others will identify with, and I hope that they will not become victims as I did. For others, this is just an amazing story with an unusual end that I think you will enjoy reading.
