This extraordinary work of investigative journalism takes readers inside America’s isolated Mormon Fundamentalist communities, where some 40,000 people still practice polygamy. Defying both civil authorities and the Mormon establishment in Salt Lake City, the renegade leaders of these Taliban-like theocracies are zealots who answer only to God. At the core of Krakauer’s book are brothers Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they received a commandment from God to kill a blameless woman and her baby girl. Beginning with a meticulously researched account of this appalling double murder, Krakauer constructs a multi-layered, bone-chilling narrative of messianic delusion, polygamy, savage violence, and unyielding faith. Along the way he uncovers a shadowy offshoot of America’s fastest growing religion, and raises provocative questions about the nature of religious belief.

Greg Mortenson, the bestselling author of Three Cups of Tea, is a man who has built a global reputation as a selfless humanitarian and children’s crusader, and he’s been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. But, as Jon Krakauer demonstrates in this extensively researched and penetrating book, he is not all that he appears to be. Based on wide-ranging interviews with former employees, board members, and others who have intimate knowledge of Mortenson and his charity, the Central Asia Institute, Three Cups of Deceit uncovers multiple layers of deception behind Mortenson’s public image. Was his crusade really inspired by a desire to repay the kindness of villagers who nursed him back to health when he became lost on his descent down K2? Was he abducted and held for eight days by the Taliban? Has his charity built all of the schools that he has claimed? This book is a passionately argued plea for the truth, and a tragic tale of good intentions gone very wrong. 100% of Jon Krakauer’s proceeds from the sale of Three Cups of Deceit will be donated to the “Stop Girl Trafficking” project at the American Himalayan Foundation (www.himalayan-foundation.org/live/project/stopgirltrafficking).

The body of a 21st Century scientist, Newton Flotman, is discovered deep underground inside a life support chamber in the 30th Century and is revived from hibernation with ultra-advanced technology. He later learns of many disturbing and beautiful developments, which occurred on Earth during his years of absence. Including the 3rd World War, the final Nuclear Holocaust, which caused horrific death and destruction, and had physically altered the planet to such a degree that even our top geologists and scientists were left wholly baffled...thus began a new era, which they called, 'The Terrain Reformation Period'. Almost 898 years had passed, the year of our Lord AD 2914, he finds himself now living in a reformed world where war, violence, crime, greed, poverty, and money, has long since been abolished. Including all religions and false teachings, where man's success is measured only by his advancement in technology, knowledge, wisdom, and spiritual development, and his eagerness in his quest for the divine love from one true God. Surrounded by generosity, love, and kindness, he struggles to find out about his past (and later discovers some shocking truths too) with the aid of a new invention, Ghost Crystal, a technology that enables direct real-time communication with the spirit world. If you are tired of violence and murder and share a keen interest in technology and spiritual matters, then you will enjoy this adventure immensely. The story is told through the eyes of Newton himself, as he describes, most brilliantly, the perfect blueprint for the creation of an ideal world which most of us would yearn.
