When Keith Schooley took a job with one of the largest, most respected securities firms on Wall Street, he had high hopes for a successful career in finance. He was proud to work for a company of such high integrity as Merrill Lynch. It didn't take long, however, for Schooley to realize Merrill Lynch's well-cultivated reputation was not based on what went on behind the facade. The story follows the chronological events that eventually led him to a courtroom battle with the behemoth firm. It begins with Schooley encountering a number of questionable events within the firm, including cheating on insurance exams. His concerns deepened when he was told, "Don't worry about product knowledge. Just sell." In a daring move, Schooley decides he cannot look the other way and writes a lengthy memo to Merrill Lynch management that details 10 specific incidents of wrongdoing within the company. There were several attempts made by Merrill Lynch to quiet the whistle-blower, which were followed by Schooley's controversial dismissal. The latter part of the book details Schooley's wrongful termination suit, which ends up going to arbitration. Skeptical he would get a fair hearing, Schooley appealed to all regulators possible that might be able to force Merrill Lynch to own up to its actions, including the New York Stock Exchange and the National Association of Securities Dealers. Despite having in his corner legal heavyweight attorney Stephen Jones, who represented Schooley in the initial rounds of his fight, and Professor Michael Rustad, the nation's leading authority on punitive damages who testified on Schooley's behalf, the result of the arbitration is a disappointment. In the end, Schooley paid the ultimate price, not only losing a job but sacrificing his marriage as well. Finding strength in his faith, Schooley exhausted every motion and petition he could file with the courts before presenting his case in the court of public opinion.

National Book Award–winner Timothy Egan turns his historian's eye to the largest-ever forest fire in America and offers an epic, cautionary tale for our time. On the afternoon of August 20, 1910, a battering ram of wind moved through the drought-stricken national forests of Washington, Idaho, and Montana, whipping the hundreds of small blazes burning across the forest floor into a roaring inferno that jumped from treetop to ridge as it raged, destroying towns and timber in the blink of an eye. Forest rangers had assembled nearly ten thousand men to fight the fires, but no living person had seen anything like those flames, and neither the rangers nor anyone else knew how to subdue them. Egan recreates the struggles of the overmatched rangers against the implacable fire with unstoppable dramatic force, and the larger story of outsized president Teddy Roosevelt and his chief forester, Gifford Pinchot, that follows is equally resonant. Pioneering the notion of conservation, Roosevelt and Pinchot did nothing less than create the idea of public land as our national treasure, owned by every citizen. Even as TR's national forests were smoldering they were saved: The heroism shown by his rangers turned public opinion permanently in favor of the forests, though it changed the mission of the forest service in ways we can still witness today. This e-book includes a sample chapter of SHORT NIGHTS OF THE SHADOW CATCHER.

This is "the Word" -- one man's word, certainly -- about the art (and artifice) of the state of our computer-centric existence. And considering that the "one man" is Neal Stephenson, "the hacker Hemingway" (Newsweek) -- acclaimed novelist, pragmatist, seer, nerd-friendly philosopher, and nationally bestselling author of groundbreaking literary works (Snow Crash, Cryptonomicon, etc., etc.) -- the word is well worth hearing. Mostly well-reasoned examination and partial rant, Stephenson's In the Beginning... was the Command Line is a thoughtful, irreverent, hilarious treatise on the cyber-culture past and present; on operating system tyrannies and downloaded popular revolutions; on the Internet, Disney World, Big Bangs, not to mention the meaning of life itself.

Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best novels of all time Published in 1975, Ragtime changed our very concept of what a novel could be. An extraordinary tapestry, Ragtime captures the spirit of America in the era between the turn of the century and the First World War. The story opens in 1906 in New Rochelle, New York, at the home of an affluent American family. One lazy Sunday afternoon, the famous escape artist Harry Houdini swerves his car into a telephone pole outside their house. And almost magically, the line between fantasy and historical fact, between real and imaginary characters, disappears. Henry Ford, Emma Goldman, J. P. Morgan, Evelyn Nesbit, Sigmund Freud, and Emiliano Zapata slip in and out of the tale, crossing paths with Doctorow's imagined family and other fictional characters, including an immigrant peddler and a ragtime musician from Harlem whose insistence on a point of justice drives him to revolutionary violence.
