Beauty lies in the truth. A wife with a thirst for revenge desperately trying to save her marriage while hiding in the shadows of her memories...A woman with questionable intentions, a sketchy past, and a taste for unavailable men...A husband in love with his wife, a man mesmerized by his mistress, a willing hostage caught between two obsessive women. A murderer, a liar, and a cheater. You think you know which one is which, but nothing is as it seems. After all, everyone wears a mask. Some are just better at hiding the truth than others. Lies will be exposed. Truths revealed. Blood shed. All in the name of something far more potent than love and much more toxic. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rebecca Roberts, Mateo Reate.

In this New York Times best seller, Tyrese Gibson, multi-platinum R&B singer and movie star, and Rev Run of Run-DMC and star of Run´s House, present a bold, honest, and uncensored look into the male mind. Tyrese and Rev are the unlikeliest of best friends - Rev is married with six kids, and Tyrese is a single dad still hesitant to settle down. But after an unexpected argument in which Rev insisted that marriage is forever, and Tyrese countered that you could bail when the sex went bad, the two decided not just to agree to disagree, but to team up and open their debate to a larger audience. Manology will help you weed out the cheaters, manipulators, and pimps from the good men, and it will give you the tools to know if your man is the marrying kind. In ´´Manology after Dark´´, the guys even give the lowdown on what men need in bed, before and after they put a ring on your finger. Some behavior can´t be changed, but as Tyrese and Rev share, it´s better to face the truth. With Rev´s hard-earned knowledge on how to make a marriage work, and Tyrese´s sometimes uncomfortable, but always honest take on the single man´s mind-set, Manology is your one source to help you take control of your love life and truly understand your man. 1.

First published in 1935, when Americans were still largely oblivious to the rise of Hitler in Europe, this prescient novel tells a cautionary tale about the fragility of democracy and offers an alarming, eerily timeless look at how fascism could take hold in America. Doremus Jessup, a newspaper editor, is dismayed to find that many of the people he knows support presidential candidate Berzelius Windrip. The suspiciously fascist Windrip is offering to save the nation from sex, crime, welfare cheats, and a liberal press. But after Windrip wins the election, dissent soon becomes dangerous for Jessup. Windrip forcibly gains control of Congress and the Supreme Court and, with the aid of his personal paramilitary storm troopers, turns the United States into a totalitarian state. 1.
