In this revealing and beautifully written memoir, Mark Obama Ndesandjo recounts his complex relationship with his older half brother, President Barack Obama, including their first meeting in Kenya over 20 years ago. The book also offers the author's inspiring personal story about identity and multiculturalism. Rare family photos add to the book's personal nature, as does the intense recounting of domestic violence in the home of Barack Obama, Sr. and his third wife, Ruth Baker, Mark's Jewish-American mother. The book also attempts to set the record straight on several points of the president's best-selling memoir Dreams from My Father. In its connection to President Obama, Mark's story takes on an even greater significance because it becomes all the more directly a story of American identity and a window into the complex figure of the father they share, Barack Obama, Sr.; their roots in Kenya; their multicultural identities; and their relationships with America. 1.

Agnes Baker Pilgrim, known to most as Grandma Aggie, is in her 90s and is the oldest living member of the Takelma Tribe, one of the Confederated Tribes of Siletz. A descendant of both spiritual and political tribal leaders, Grandma Aggie travels tirelessly around the world to keep traditions alive, to help those in need, and to be a voice for the voiceless, helping everyone to remember to preserve our Earth for animals and each other in a spiritual environment. Considered an excellent speaker, she has mesmerized her audience wherever she appears, and now her wit, wisdom, memories, advice, stories, and spirituality have been captured for all to hear. Honored as a "Living Cultural Legend" by the Oregon Council of the Arts, Grandma Aggie here speaks about her childhood memories, about her tribe and her life as a child growing up in an area that often didn't allow Indians and dogs into many public places, as well as about such contemporary issues as bullying, teen suicide, drugs and alcohol, Pope Francis, President Obama, water conservation, climate change, and much more. This is an amazing recording of one of the oldest and most important voices of the First Nation and of the world. Her stories and advice will mesmerize and captivate you as well as provide a blueprint for how all the inhabitants of the Earth can live together in harmony, spirituality, and peace. 1.

In this hour, the style of type used by the Obama campaign is called Gotham and was designed by the team of Jonathan Hoefler and Tobias Frere-Jones. They tell Anne Strainchamps how they feel about having designed the font of Hope and Change and where the design originally came from. Next, novelist Nicholson Baker reviewed the Kindle, Amazon's electronic reading device, in The New Yorker in an article called "A New Page: Can the Kindle Really Improve the Book?" Baker tells Anne Strainchamps that e-readers have some advantages over the printed book, but the Kindle isn't his favorite.Then, Matthew Carter designed Verdana, the internet font, and co-founded Bitstream, the first digital foundry. He co-designed Helvetica - the most ubiquitous font family in the world. He even designed Bell Centennial, the phone book font. Carter tells Steve Paulson his career in fonts began very traditionally, at a printing factory.After that, Tracy Honn, director of the Silver Buckle Press in Madison, WI, takes TTBOOK's Charles Monroe-Kane and Caryl Owen on a tour of this working museum of letterpress printing, and its star, The Trolley: a Golding Official #6 from the late 1800s. And finally, Kitty Burns Florey is the author of Script and Scribble: The Rise and Fall of Handwriting. She says handwriting is the original font and talks with Jim Fleming about practicing Palmer method. [Broadcast Date: August 18, 2010] 1. Language: English.

THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER THE OBSERVER BOOK OF THE YEAR THE INSIDE STORY ON PRESIDENT TRUMP, AS ONLY BOB WOODWARD CAN TELL IT. ' Fear is a meticulously researched account of a White House and a president in financial, legal and personal disorder...essential reading...' Daily Mail 'I think you've always been fair.' - President Donald J. Trump, in a call to Bob Woodward, August 14, 2018 'The sheer weight of anecdotes depicts a man with no empathy and a pathological capacity for lying.' - The Financial Times 'Fuelling his narrative is an astonishing cast of rogues, ideologues, self-made millionaires and men in uniform who have spent the past two years in and out of Trump's administration.' - The Sunday Times 'Woodward's meticulous account of office intrigues, the president's men don't seem to be trembling with fright. What they mostly feel is contempt for Trump or pity for his ignorance and the "teenage logic" of his obsessively vented grievances.' - The Observer 'Horribly fascinating. Strongly recommended. If you can bear it.' Richard Dawkins 'To me the standout message from the book...is that the president is a bit clueless, a bit vain, a bit dangerous even; but his people are utterly at sea...' - Justin Webb, The Times 'He is the master and I'd trust him over politicians of either party any day of the week.' - Peter Baker, New York Times 'His work has been factually unassailable . . . In an age of 'alternative facts' and corrosive tweets about 'fake news,' Woodward is truth's gold standard.' - Jill Abramson, The Washington Post ' Fear depicts a White House awash in dysfunction, where the Lord of the Flies is the closest thing to an owner's manual.' The Guardian 'I wonder how many journalists have arrived in Washington over the years dreaming of becoming the next Bob Woodward . . . Though his books are often sensational, he is the opposite of sensationalist. He's diligent, rigorous, fastidious about the facts, and studiously ethical . There's something almost monastic about his method . . . He's Washington's chronicler in chief .' - Nick Bryant, BBC 'I've been on the receiving end of a Bob Woodward book. There were quotes in it I didn't like. But never once - never - did I think Woodward made it up. Anonymous sources have looser lips and may take liberties. But Woodward always plays is straight. Someone told it to him.' - Ari Fleisher, White House Press Secretary for George W. Bush With authoritative reporting honed through eight presidencies from Nixon to Obama, author Bob Woodward reveals in unprecedented detail the harrowing life inside President Donald Trump's White House and precisely how he makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies. Woodward draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources, meeting notes, personal diaries, files and documents. The focus is on the explosive debates and the decision-making in the Oval Office, the Situation Room, Air Force One and the White House residence. Fear is the most intimate portrait of a sitting president ever published during the president's first years in office.
