‘The Last Boy: Mickey Mantle and the End of America’s Childhood‘ by Jane Leavy (HarperCollins) is available for FREE download on the Amazon US Kindle site. Just click here to download!
Award-winning sports writer Jane Leavy follows her New York Times runaway bestseller Sandy Koufax with the definitive biography of baseball icon Mickey Mantle. The legendary Hall-of-Fame outfielder was a national hero during his record-setting career with the New York Yankees, but public revelations of alcoholism, infidelity, and family strife badly tarnished the ballplayer’s reputation in his latter years. In The Last Boy, Leavy plumbs the depths of the complex athlete, using copious first-hand research as well as her own memories, to show why The Mick remains the most beloved and misunderstood Yankee slugger of all time.

‘American Independence: From Common Sense to the Declaration‘ by Benjamin Ponder (Estate Four Publishers) is available for FREE download on the Amazon US Kindle site. Just click here to download! Also at Amazon UK and Amazon CA.
American Independence is a pathbreaking rhetorical history of the dramatic confluence of political events and discourse that turned, in only a few short months, thirteen disaffected but fiercely loyal colonies into “Free and Independent States.” Author Benjamin Ponder focuses upon Thomas Paine’s Common Sense and the vigorous debate sparked by the bestselling pamphlet to demonstrate the constitution of a distinctively American public during the first half of 1776. American Independence employs an integrative analysis of text and context to challenge longstanding scholarly assumptions about the ideological and cultural origins of the American Revolution.
