📒The Red Bandanna ✍ Tom Rinaldi
📝The Red Bandanna Book Synopsis : A New York Times bestseller What would you do in the last hour of your life? The story of Welles Crowther, whose actions on 9/11 offer a lasting lesson on character, calling and courage One Sunday morning before church, when Welles Crowther was a young boy, his father gave him a red handkerchief for his back pocket. Welles kept it with him that day, and just about every day to come; it became a fixture and his signature. A standout athlete growing up in Upper Nyack, NY, Welles was also a volunteer at the local fire department, along with his father. He cherished the necessity and the camaraderie, the meaning of the role. Fresh from college, he took a Wall Street job on the 104th floor of the South Tower of the World Trade Center, but the dream of becoming a firefighter with the FDNY remained. When the Twin Towers fell, Welles’s parents had no idea what happened to him. In the unbearable days that followed, they came to accept that he would never come home. But the mystery of his final hours persisted. Eight months after the attacks, however, Welles’s mother read a news account from several survivors, badly hurt on the 78th floor of the South Tower, who said they and others had been led to safety by a stranger, carrying a woman on his back, down nearly twenty flights of stairs. After leading them down, the young man turned around. “I’m going back up,” was all he said. The survivors didn’t know his name, but despite the smoke and panic, one of them remembered a single detail clearly: the man was wearing a red bandanna. Tom Rinaldi’s The Red Bandanna is about a fearless choice, about a crucible of terror and the indomitable spirit to answer it. Examining one decision in the gravest situation, it celebrates the difference one life can make. From the Hardcover edition.
📒The Woman Who Wasn T There ✍ Robin Gaby Fisher
📝The Woman Who Wasn t There Book Synopsis : It was a tale of loss and recovery, of courage and sorrow, of horror and inspiration. Tania Head’s astonishing account of her experience on September 11, 2001—from crawling through the carnage and chaos to escaping the seventy-eighth-floor sky lobby of the burning south tower to losing her fiancé in the collapsed north tower—transformed her into one of the great victims and heroes of that tragic day. Tania selflessly took on the responsibility of giving a voice and a direction to the burgeoning World Trade Center Survivors’ Network, helping save the “Survivor Stairway” and leading tours at Ground Zero, including taking then-governor Pataki, Mayor Bloomberg, and former mayor Giuliani on the inaugural tour of the WTC site. She even used her own assets to fund charitable events to help survivors heal. But there was something very wrong with Tania’s story—a terrible secret that would break the hearts and challenge the faith of all those she claimed to champion. Told with the unique insider perspective and authority of Angelo J. Guglielmo, Jr., a filmmaker shooting a documentary on the efforts of the Survivors’ Network, and previously one of Tania’s closest friends, The Woman Who Wasn’t There is the story of one of the most audacious and bewildering quests for acclaim in recent memory—one that poses fascinating questions about the essence of morality and the human need for connection at any cost.

📒The Last Australian Prime Minister ✍ Uthers Say
📝The Last Australian Prime Minister Book Synopsis : At the time of writing towards the end of March 2013 the Australian media with a uniformity that would have done credit to state-controlled media was telling Australia that Tony Abbott would be the next Prime Minister of Australia. The message was not new. It was the same narrative that Australians had been fed by their newspapers, televisions and radio for the last two years. During those two years while Australian were being told by their media that they had possibly the worst government in the world, others who had access to data and broader perspective and less agenda adjudicated that the country Julia Gillard was Prime Minister of was one of the best country in the world to live in, one of the best countries in the world for a child born in 2013 to be born, one of the most financially sound economies in the world with one of the highest standard of living and greatest opportunities, and a country with one of the lowest debt levels in the developed world. The country that Australia’s news limited media had “awfulized” so effectively was a country that people were literally dying to get to. The Gillard years were a time where Australia’s media enjoyed unfettered freedom of the press. There was a possibility however that others were deprived not only of accurate information and a diversity of views, but of the opportunity to take pride in the remarkable achievements of their country at a time of great economic difficulty across the world, to savour the peace and prosperity in which they lived, to celebrate the successes that the government had achieved – be it avoiding the worst impacts of the GFC, securing a seat on the Security Council, earning a Triple-A credit rating from all major agencies, achieving enviable scores on indicators such as unemployment, growth, inflation, strong dollar, improved safety net, manageable debt levels, and real wage growth, and cementing its place in the world strengthening alliances with old friends and looking forward to an Asian century. Julia Gillard will not be the last Prime Minister of Australia in the same way that she did not assassinate anyone, or stage a coup, or stab anyone in the back, or have blood on her hands. However it is very likely that she would be the last Australian Prime Minister prepared to fight for the freedom of the press of ordinary Australians as distinct from the opposition and many in her own party who are more interested in protecting the freedom of the press of media barons. She is very likely to be the last Prime Minister in Australia who will dare to impose any taxes on corporations and on the wealthy people who run the big corporations. She is likely to be the last Prime Minister who will not stand idly by while middle class tax payers are asked to pay a price for the pollution in our atmosphere so that the big polluters who run the big corporations won’t be asked to pay a carbon tax. Julia Gillard is likely to be the last Australian Prime Minister to put the rights and conditions of Australian workers ahead of the privileges and power of the corporations. A multinational corporation does not owe allegiance to a specific jurisdiction or nation. Its first obligation is to its bottom line. The News Ltd chorus will tell the folk that unless a good product is being provided the folk can turn away. That is logical on one level. But those who are in a position to manipulate the masses have shown throughout history that good folk are trusting of those who have power- especially the power to control the flow of news and information. Examples can be found from the crowd who fell to the charm of Mark Anthony’s silver tongue and were persuaded to avenge Caesar’s death, to the crowd who at the prompting of certain powers of the time shouted “crucify him” on good Friday to the trusting crowd that make News Corporation’s Fox News Channel in its fifth year of dedication to diminishing and destroying the Obama Presidency the most profitable of cable networks in the USA to
