The New Supply Chain Agenda by Reuben E. Slone
A fascinating true story based on the crash of a US military plane called The Gremlin Special. The term “Shangri-La” is the name of a fictional utopia and comes from James Hilton’s Lost Horizon. This book has been listed as amongst the best non-fiction of 2011 by both Salon magazine and The New York Times. We have the American hardcover edition of the book, the cover of which you can see above, but I think I much prefer the British edition’s cover:
Clark Howard’s Living Large In Lean Times: 250+ Ways To Buy Smarter, Spend Smarter, and Save Money by Clark Howard
Colossus: Hoover Dam And The Making Of The American Century by Michael Hiltzik
Black Power In Dixie: A Political History Of African Americans In Atlanta by Alton Hornsby Jr.
