1. “Freezing Order: A True Story of Money Laundering, Murder, and Surviving Vladimir Putin's Wrath’’ by Bill Browder (Simon & Schuster) Browder, CEO of Hermitage Capital Management, was the largest foreign investor in Russia until 2005. That’s when he became Vladimir Putin’s No. 1 enemy by exposing Putin’s campaign to steal and launder hundreds of billions of dollars and kill anyone who stands in his way.

2. “Actively Unwoke: The Ultimate Guide for Fighting Back Against the Woke Insanity in Your Life’’ by Karlyn Borysenko (Bombardier Books) Borysenko, an organizational psychologist turned unwoke activist, argues that the woke have taken over every major institution in this country — schools and universities, corporate America, the media, and the government. She examines how people have battled wokeness by fighting back in the schools, knowing how to act when the woke come to work, taking a stand with your elected leaders, and, she says, even a few subversive strategies just for fun. She believes the fight isn’t about left or right, Democrat or Republican and not about liberal or conservative values — but rather about protecting American values. (Nonfiction)
3. “The Liver Cure: Natural Solutions for Liver Health to Target Symptoms of Fatty Liver Disease, Autoimmune Diseases, Diabetes, Inflammation, Stress & Fatigue, Skin Conditions, and Many More’’ by Dr. Russell L. Blaylock with Charlotte Libov (Humanix Books) A renowned neurosurgeon describes the liver as the most overlooked and misunderstood of all our body’s organs — because without a healthy liver, you ultimately cannot survive. That’s why, as this book details, it’s vital to take action to protect your liver and the assault it faces everyday by factors in our modern-day life. Blaylock discusses the liver’s role in disease, the poor lifestyle choices that will harm it, the best exercises for liver health and how to follow a pro-liver diet. (Nonfiction)

But this worst single day in the history of life on Earth was as critical for us humankind as it was for the dinosaurs, as it allowed for evolutionary opportunities that were closed for the previous 100 million years.
