A comprehensive list of books to read in January

Moondust: In Search Of The Men Who Fell To Earth | Andrew Smith

The Apollo lunar missions of the 1960s and 1970s have been called the last optimistic acts of the twentieth century.

Twelve astronauts made this greatest of all journeys and were indelibly marked by it, for better or for worse.

Journalist Andrew Smith tracks down the nine surviving members of this elite group to find their answers to the question “Where do you go after you’ve been to the Moon?”

A thrilling blend of history, reportage, and memoir, Moondust rekindles the hopeful excitement of an incandescent hour in America’s past.

The book also captures the bittersweet heroism of those who risked everything to hurl themselves out of the known world.

And well, they were never again quite able to accept its familiar bounds.

No Apology: The Case for American Greatness | Mitt Romney

On his first presidential visit to address the European nations, President Obama felt it necessary to apologize for America’s international power. 

He repeated that apology when visiting Latin America.

Obama also did it again to Muslims worldwide in an interview broadcast on Al-Arabiya television.

In No Apology, Mitt Romney asserts that American strength is essential—not just for our own well-being, but for the worlds.

Governments such as China and a newly-robust Russia threaten to overtake us on many fronts.

Moreover, Islam continues its dangerous rise. 

Drawing on history for lessons on how great powers collapse, Romney shows how and why our national advantages have eroded.

From the long-term decline of our;

  • Manufacturing base
  • The laggard educational system that has left us without enough engineers, scientists, and other skilled professionals.
  • Our corrupted financial practices that led to the current crisis, and
  • The crushing impact of entitlements on our future obligations.

America is in debt, overtaxed, and unprepared for the challenges it must face.

We need renewal: fresh ideas to cut through complicated problems and restore our strength. 

Creative and bold, Romney proposes simple solutions to rebuild industry, create good jobs, reduce out of control spending on entitlements and healthcare, dramatically improve education, and restore a military battered by eight years of war. 

Most important, he calls for a new commitment to citizenship, a common cause we all share, rather than a laundry list of individual demands. 

Many of his solutions oppose President Obama’s policies, many also run counter to Republican thinking, but all have one strategic aim:

To move America back to political and economic strength. 

Personal and dynamically-argued, No Apology is a call to action by a man who cares deeply about America’s history, its promise, and its future. 

The Thirst | Jo Nesbo

The murder victim, a self-declared Tinder addict.

The one solid clue—fragments of rust and paint in her wounds—leaves the investigating team baffled.

Two days later, there’s a second murder: a woman of the same age, a Tinder user, an eerily similar scene.

The chief of police knows there’s only one man for this case.

But Harry Hole is no longer with the force.

He promised the woman he loves, and he promised himself, that he’d never go back: not after his last case, which put the people closest to him in grave danger.

But there’s something about these murders that catches his attention, something in the details that the investigators have missed.

For Harry, it’s like hearing “the voice of a man he was trying not to remember.”

Now, despite his promises, despite everything he risks, Harry throws himself back into the hunt for a figure who haunts him, the monster who got away.

Another One Goes Tonight | Peter Lovesey

Two police officers are about to head home after a long night shift when they receive one last call.

En route to investigate, the patrol car spins off the road, killing one of the exhausted cops and leaving the other in critical condition.

Detective Peter Diamond is assigned to look into the case.

His supervisor is desperately hoping Diamond will not discover the officers were at fault.

Instead, Diamond discovers something even worse.

A civilian on a motorized tricycle was involved in the crash and has been lying on the side of the road for hours.

Diamond administers CPR, but the man’s fate is unclear.

Soon, though, Diamond becomes suspicious of the civilian victim and begins a private inquiry that leads to a trail of uninvestigated deaths.

As the man lingers on life support, Diamond must wrestle with the fact that he may have saved the life of a serial killer. 

The Greatest Game Ever Played | Mark Frost

Ouimet and Vardon were two men from different generations and vastly different corners of the world.

Their lives, unbeknownst to them at the time, bore remarkable similarities.

This, setting them on parallel paths that led with a kind of fated inevitability to their epic battle at Brookline years in the future.

This collision resulted in the big bang’ that gave rise to the sport of golf as we know it today.

For Mark Frost, Francis Ouimet and Harry Vardon represent everything that’s right about sports in general and sportsmen in particular; gentlemen, champions, teachers, leaders, and each in their own quiet way, heroes.

In THE GREATEST GAME EVER PLAYED, Frost attempts to create penetrating studies of both of these men, along with over dozens of the game’s seminal figures, within the dramatic framework offered by the tournament when they finally met, one of the most thrilling sports events in history, the 1913 U.S. Open.
