In the mountains of Guanajuato, Mexico sits a picturesque community favored by artists and tourists. But for American-born Jayne Valseca and her husband Eduardo, son of a legendary Mexican newspaper publisher, it became a hell on earth when Eduardo was ambushed by strangers and kidnapped in the summer of 2007.

Jayne knew that in Mexico kidnapping was a pervasive and lucrative business-a burgeoning criminal industry with few happy endings. This time the merchandise was her husband. Sealed in a dark seven-by-six, two-feet-wide box, Eduardo lived for seven months on little more than eggshells and chicken bones. He was subjected to the most cruel and humiliating mental and physical torture imaginable. He had no reason to believe he'd ever be found alive. As the ransom escalated, so did the stakes. But Jayne refused to be a pawn in the kidnappers' sick game. She decided to become a player. If she was to get her husband back alive, she'd have to be more cunning than the kidnappers and be cool, calculated and determined . . .

From February to November of 1906, California journalist Albert Sonnichsen made his way through the remnants of the Ottoman Empire, observing firsthand a country falling apart. Entrenched among a group of revolutionaries at war with the Greeks and Turks, he took special pleasure in seeking out the region's most notorious guerrillas (many of whom he captured in photographs). The prose is as taut and contemporary as the story is riveting-history as lived in the trenches, from one of the first "embedded" journalists. A native of San Francisco, ALBERT SONNICHSEN (1878-1931) worked as a foreign reporter for the New York Tribune, McClure's, and the New York Evening Post. He also wrote Ten Months a Captive Among Filipinos.

Presented with striking simplicity, We Must Change the Way We Live is a thoughtful and compelling narrative on financial prudence. It offers a simple-to-follow guide on how to plan for advanced education, retirement, debt elimination, and personal investments. It also lays out a reasoned view on how to strengthen America's leadership in higher education and fiscal discipline.
Unlike most other resources on financial education, the approach in this book is grounded on how we, as individuals, can be best prepared to not only become financially independent, but also, and perhaps even more important, offer a helping hand to others who otherwise would be limited in their own efforts to succeed. The author's early struggles in life, his humble beginnings as a naturalized American, and the unparalleled opportunities that America continues to offer, bolster the argument for self-empowerment. In that sense, this book begins with a thoughtful reflection on the core American values of hard work and excellence, both of which helped build this nation into an enviable destination for those seeking to actualize their dreams of a better life.
At the dawn of the 21st Century, two important phenomena that gained renewed attention were globalization and financial crisis. Globalization is the reality of how economic integration among nations has heightened the pace of international competition, especially in commerce and technology. The collapse of the U.S. housing market in 2007, and the financial crisis that followed it, exposed the fragility of our financial system, in particular, when financial prudence is overlooked. In We Must Change the Way We Live, these events are used as a backdrop in articulating how we can advance our competencies to meet the rising challenges of the highly competitive and ever changing global economy.
