1. “Trump 45: America's Greatest President’’ by L.D. Hicks (Post Hill Press) A pictorial history of President Donald Trump, the author says depicts the 45th president “doing more for this country than any other president in this century.’’ Trump is pictured negotiating trade deals, speaking before Congress, hammering out peace agreements with foreign leaders, and bringing troops home from overseas. (Nonfiction)
2. “Zelenskyy: The Unlikely Ukrainian Hero Who Defied Putin and United the World’’ by Andrew L. Urban and Chris McLeod (Regency Publishing) The first major profile of Volodymyr Zelenskyy, covering his childhood, family history, and transformation from TV celebrity and comedian to first Jewish president of Ukraine. The authors, both veteran journalists, say no one has been more surprised by Zelenskyy's power to inspire and mobilize his countrymen and the world than Vladimir Putin, who expected Russia's conquest of its beleaguered neighbor to be the work of an afternoon, only to be outfoxed again and again. (Nonfiction)
3. “Inflation: What It Is, Why It's Bad, and How to Fix It’’ by Nathan Lewis, Steve Forbes and Elizabeth Ames (Encounter Books) Lewis, a renowned expert on money and taxation and chair of Forbes Media, and journalist Elizabeth Ames explain what they say is behind the worst inflationary storm in more than 40 years — one shaking Americans by their pocketbooks. The authors say that today’s problems can be solved by discarding longstanding beliefs that helped bring on the current crisis, including the notion that central banks can create prosperity through artificially creating money “out of thin air,” and that economic “stability” requires “a little inflation.” Such ideas, they write, have been for decades Holy Writ in official Washington, but inflation shows why they are misguided. They also address the everyday concerns of Americans under siege by rising prices, including steps one should take to protect their wealth. (Nonfiction)
4. “War Without Rules: China's Playbook for Global Domination’’ by Robert Spalding (Sentinel) Spalding, a retired U.S. Air Force brigadier general and former China strategist for the chair of the joint chiefs of staff, says Americans are waking up to the reality of China's stealth war on the U.S. He explains how the Chinese Communist Party has promised to use corporate espionage, global pandemics, and trade violations to achieve world dominance — and how Americans can fight back against China’s steadily creeping influence. (Nonfiction)
5. “Wingwalkers” by Taylor Brown (St. Martin’s Press) A former WWI ace pilot and his wingwalker wife barnstorm across Depression-era America, performing acts of death-defying aerial daring. Acclaimed novelist Brown weaves their story into a real-life incident involving author (and failed pilot) William Faulkner. When their paths cross during a dramatic air show, there will be unexpected consequences for all. (Fiction)
