E-book Explanation:

In the depths of the Great Recession, a cancer nurse, a car dealership worker, and an insurance fraud specialist helped uncover the largest consumer crime in American history—a scandal that implicated dozens of major executives on Wall Street. They called it foreclosure fraud: millions of families were kicked out of their homes based on false evidence by mortgage companies that had no legal right to foreclose. Lisa Epstein, Michael Redman, and Lynn Szymoniak did not work in government or law enforcement. They had no history of anticorporate activism. Instead they were all foreclosure victims, and while struggling with their shame and isolation they committed a revolutionary act: closely reading their mortgage documents, discovering the deceit behind them, and building a movement to expose it. Fiscal Times columnist David Dayen recounts how these ordinary Floridians challenged the most powerful institutions in America armed only with the truth—and for a brief moment they brought the corrupt financial industry to its knees.

E-book Explanation:

"You were the love of my life, Shay. It never mattered to me that I wasn't yours." Thanks to her philandering husband, Shayna Chastain's twenty-five-year marriage crashed and burned. But she's no stranger to blindsides and heartbreak. She will do what she has always done: put one foot in front of the other and march forward. It's not easy to do, and her ex is making it even harder. And then there's the new man in her life . . . Sean Parker owns an Italian restaurant that has become Shayna's oasis. Their mutual attraction is instant, but the fallout from their relationship will last a lifetime. Because behind Sean's clean-cut, stylish exterior hides an unsavory past he has no intention of disclosing. What matters to him is right now. And right now, there's no way in hell he's going to lose the only woman he's ever loved. The only woman he can't live without. It could all be perfect, if only her meddling ex would get out of the way . . . Frank Chastain is a steely real estate mogul, who begrudgingly signed the dissolution papers Shayna forced on him. He never wanted to divorce the love of his life, always believed they could work it out. She'll be back. He's sure of it. And, now, more than ever, he needs that to be true. Because he needs Shayna to help him seal the lid shut on the secret that's threatening to destroy him. When the deadly consequences of secrets and lies shatter Shayna's world, she will be left to pick up the pieces, alone, once again.

E-book Explanation:

From the airlines we fly to the food we eat, how a tiny group of corporations have come to dominate every aspect of our lives—by one of our most intrepid and accomplished journalists “If you’re looking for a book . . . that will get your heart pumping and your blood boiling and that will remind you why we’re in these fights—add this one to your list.” —Senator Elizabeth Warren on David Dayen’s Chain of Title Over the last forty years our choices have narrowed, our opportunities have shrunk, and our lives have become governed by a handful of very large and very powerful corporations. Today, practically everything we buy, everywhere we shop, and every service we secure comes from a heavily concentrated market. This is a world where four major banks control most of our money, four airlines shuttle most of us around the country, and four major cell phone providers connect most of our communications. If you are sick you can go to one of three main pharmacies to fill your prescription, and if you end up in a hospital almost every accessory to heal you comes from one of a handful of large medical suppliers. Dayen, the editor of the American Prospect and author of the acclaimed Chain of Title, provides a riveting account of what it means to live in this new age of monopoly and how we might resist this corporate hegemony. Through vignettes and vivid case studies Dayen shows how these monopolies have transformed us, inverted us, and truly changed our lives, at the same time providing readers with the raw material to make monopoly a consequential issue in American life and revive a long-dormant antitrust movement.
