NIKKI HALEY RESIGNATION“Until recently ‘disruption’ was a bad word, plain and simple.” That is how Alan Axelrod begins his new book: THE DISRUPTORS, 50 PEOPLE WHO CHANGED THE WORLD. Nevertheless, Axelrod has titled his book THE DISRUPTERS and he defines disrupters as those who upend cultural, technical, spiritual, and scientific paradigms and thus alter the way we live forever. What does Charles Darwin have in common with Steve Jobs – or with Jackson Pollock, Martin Luther, Betty Friedan, Johannes Gutenberg and DJ Kool Herc? They were “DISRUPTORS.” From the invention of the printing press to the fight for women’s equality, from the smartphone to the invention of hip-hop, each visionary in Alan’s book upended our world as we knew it, changing our lives forever, some might say for the better, some for the worse. For those who don’t know ALAN AXELROD, Alan is the author of more than 100 books. He is the co-author of the New York Times bestseller WHAT EVERY AMERICAN SHOULD KNOW ABOUT AMERICAN HISTORY as well as the Businessweek bestsellers PATTON ON LEADERSHIP and ELIZABETH I, CEO. He has appeared on numerous TV and radio programs and in magazine and newspaper articles.

Kavanaugh voteWe take a brief respite from politics in our second half-hour when I am joined by James Mustich, the author of 1,000 BOOKS TO READ BEFORE YOU DIE: A LIFE-CHANGING LIST. If as I do, you love books, boy do I have a book to recommend for you today and an interesting conversation when I speak with the book’s author James Mustich, the co-founder of the acclaimed book catalog, A COMMON READER. In his new catalogue of the greatest books of all times, as compulsively readable, entertaining, surprising, and enlightening as the thousand books it recommends, organized A–Z by the author, the selections takes the reader on a rollercoaster of entries: For example, Flora Thompson’s LARK RISE TO CANDLEFORD is followed by Hunters S. Thompson’s FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS and then by the children’s favorite, ELOISE. The result is an unexpectedly revealing juxtaposition of literature packaged in a beautifully designed book, enlivened throughout with extensive illustrations, its compilation of brief, yet informed and thought-provoking essays accompanying each title, giving the reader a sense of the work’s historical and literary context and the reason why the book is on the list. Extensive, intelligent, it’s a lively library in a book in which readers of all ages will find books to add to their personal collections and to-be-read piles. It is the ultimate gift book for bibliophiles, a veritable treasure trove that brings reading back to the center of our cultural conversation.

First 100 days

Donald Trump’s First 100 days. Will he be impeached or will he survive as President of the United States for his full four-year term? What is it like to cover the presidency of arguably one of the most controversial presidents in United States history? Halli speaks with the Distinguished Professor of History at American University, author of the much talked about book THE CASE FOR IMPEACHMENT, Allan J. Lichtman. And joining Halli at her table is veteran newsman and the political editor for the prestigious NEWSWEEK magazine, Matthew Cooper to review Donald Trump’s First 100 Days in office.

Allan J. Lichtman, has correctly forecasted thirty years of presidential outcomes. And he continued his forecasting winning streak in the fall of 2016 when he predicted that Donald J. Trump would defeat the heavily favored Democrat, Hillary Clinton, to win the presidential elections. The pollsters wish they could have fared as well. Hillary acolytes wish he had broken his winning streak. But all might not be lost for those who are still nursing the Clinton loss. In his new book, THE CASE FOR IMPEACHMENT, Professor Lichtman turns his focus to President Donald Trump and his next forecast – that it is not a question of IF President Trump will be impeached but a question of WHEN!
