Financial crime seems horribly complicated but there are only so many ways you can con someone out of what's theirs. In fact, there are four. A veteran regulatory economist and market analyst, Dan Davies has years of experience picking the bones out of some of the most famous frauds of the modern age. Now he reveals the big picture that emerges from their labyrinths of deceit. Along the way you'll find out how to fake a gold mine with a wedding ring, a file and a shotgun. You'll see how close Charles Ponzi, the king of pyramid schemes, came to acquiring his own private navy. You'll learn how fraud has shaped the entire development of the modern world economy. And you'll discover whether you have what it takes to be a white-collar criminal mastermind, if that's what you want. (Which you don't. You really, really don't.)

From the bestselling author of Tripping the Prom Queen comes a fascinating and provocative look at the reasons behind female deception. Little White Lies, Deep Dark Secrets reveals how society doles out mixed messages to women, fostering the lies they tell. Among the liars are: •A woman who shoplifts, and has it "down to a science" •A woman who tells her husband she is working late in order to be with her lover •A woman who lies about her children's achievements to her friends •A woman who pretends her husband is doing well when they are going broke •A woman who has covered up her husband's emotional abuse for years •A woman whose secret is her misery in being a stay-at-home mom in suburbia •A woman who lies about loving her partner, deciding it's better to stay than be alone •And many other secrets and deceptions Honest and even outrageous, Susan Shapiro Barash is fast becoming the author who explores issues that are important to women—issues that they are loath to talk about . . . until now.

Although evangelicals enjoyed repect and leadership in American society in the decades before the Civil War, their fortunes declined precipitately in the wake of the industrialism, modernism, and secularism of the next half-century. But the 1920s evangelicals felt like an embattled minority within a largely unbelieving culture, and perceived that history was very much out of their control. Frank examines the spiritual significance of these events by placing them against a biblical understanding of the gospel. He sees in the confidence and self congratulation of the turn-of-the-century evangelicals a protrait of the spiritually rich of the Bible who must lose their riches before they can come to know God truly. Harmful uses of the gospel are explored through dispensational premillenialism, the 'victorious life' theology, and the revivalism of Billy Sunday. Altogether, Less Than Conquerors is a call to replace the blurred and self-serving gospel of a besieged subculture with the genuine gospel of Jesus Christ.

This “delicious, sensual mystery” explores the dangerous psychological intensity between an intellectual, inhibited husband and his free-spirited wife (USA Today). John Chambers is lying in bed, waiting for his wife to come home from a mysterious errand. Before he married Clara, he devoted himself to Nietzsche and classical music, was intensely cerebral, and so attracted to self-denial that he even went through periods of refusing to speak and abstaining from sex. But now he has lost himself in this wild, impulsive woman—and he is passionately awaiting her return. As evening passes into night, he reflects on the bond between them, experiences a bizarre Chinese-food delivery—and dips into Clara’s exceedingly candid diary—in “one of the most uninhibited and intensely sexy novels to appear in some time,” an erotically suspenseful tale that “exerts an almost hypnotic attraction” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

"Born in Brotherhood" is not about outlaw bikers. Far from it. It''s about the people who led America''s fight for liberty. It''s about their values and ingrained principles. It''s about the solemn vows that, with rare exception, molded their character. "Born In Brotherhood" makes the War for Independence come alive. It provides a brutally candid look at the embryonic struggles to achieve the American dream. But James E. McNabney''s book goes even further. By focusing on the Freemasons and revealing the Masonic vows taken by America''s most revered forefathers, "Born In Brotherhood" answers many of the attacks made upon this "secret" fraternity. Except for the days of King Solomon, the world has been besieged by partisan struggles, religious wars, and sophistry from every persuasion --and lately, some slanted documentary and even terrorism. "Born In Brotherhood" begs us to take a deeper look at what America stands for: principles that unite, not divide humanity; principles that remind us to oppose tyranny in any form. American forefathers sacrificed their lives and fortunes to form a new nation, constitutionally empowering people of every nationality, sect or opinion to live peacefully together without fear of injustice. "Born In Brotherhood" gives a small sample of the struggles, convictions and principles of our forefathers --principles that too many of us seem to have dangerously forgotten. Written from years of historic and Masonic research, "Born In Brotherhood" presents the reader with a generally unique and unexplored dimension to America''s beginnings
