Download and read online Sons of Wichita in PDF and EPUB Like the Rockefellers and the Kennedys, the Kochs are one of the most influential dynasties of the modern age, but they have never been the subject of a major biography... until now. Not long after the death of his father, Charles Koch, then in his early 30s, discovered a letter the family patriarch had written to his sons. "You will receive what now seems to be a large sum of money," Fred Koch cautioned. "It may either be a blessing or a curse." Fred's legacy would become a blessing and a curse to his four sons-Frederick, Charles, and fraternal twins David and Bill-who in the ensuing decades fought bitterly over their birthright, the oil and cattle-ranching empire their father left behind in 1967. Against a backdrop of scorched-earth legal skirmishes, Charles and David built Koch Industries into one of the largest private corporations in the world-bigger than Boeing and Disney-and they rose to become two of the wealthiest men on the planet. Influenced by the sentiments of their father, who was present at the birth of the John Birch Society, Charles and David have spent decades trying to remake the American political landscape and mainline their libertarian views into the national bloodstream. They now control a machine that is a center of gravity within the Republican Party. To their supporters, they are liberating America from the scourge of Big Government. To their detractors, they are political "contract killers," as David Axelrod, President Barack Obama's chief strategist, put it during the 2012 campaign. Bill, meanwhile, built a multi-billion dollar energy empire all his own, and earned notoriety as an America's Cup-winning yachtsman, a flamboyant playboy, and as a litigious collector of fine wine and Western memorabilia. Frederick lived an intensely private life as an arts patron, refurbishing a series of historic homes and estates. SONS OF WICHITA traces the complicated lives and legacies of these four tycoons, as well as their business, social, and political ambitions. No matter where you fall on the ideological spectrum, the Kochs are one of the most influential dynasties of our era, but so little is publicly known about this family, their origins, how they make their money, and how they live their lives. Based on hundreds of interviews with friends, relatives, business associates, and many others, SONS OF WICHITA is the first major biography about this wealthy and powerful family-warts and all.

Download and read online Charity Case in PDF and EPUB A blueprint for a national leadership movement to transform the way the public thinks about giving Virtually everything our society has been taught about charity is backwards. We deny the social sector the ability to grow because of our short-sighted demand that it send every short-term dollar into direct services. Yet if the sector cannot grow, it can never match the scale of our great social problems. In the face of this dilemma, the sector has remained silent, defenseless, and disorganized. In Charity Case, Pallotta proposes a visionary solution: a Charity Defense Council to re-educate the public and give charities the freedom they need to solve our most pressing social issues. Proposes concrete steps for how a national Charity Defense Council will transform the public understanding of the humanitarian sector, including: building an anti-defamation league and legal defense for the sector, creating a massive national ongoing ad campaign to upgrade public literacy about giving, and ultimately enacting a National Civil Rights Act for Charity and Social Enterprise From Dan Pallotta, renowned builder of social movements and inventor of the multi-day charity event industry (including the AIDS Rides and Breast Cancer 3-Days) that has cumulatively raised over $1.1 billion for critical social causes The hotly-anticipated follow-up to Pallotta’s groundbreaking book Uncharitable Grounded in Pallotta’s clear vision and deep social sector experience, Charity Case is a fascinating wake-up call for fixing the culture that thwarts our charities’ ability to change the world.

Download and read online The Wolf Boys Club in PDF and EPUB Hidden in the heights of the Colorado Rocky Mountains outside of Denver stands the Complex, a government facility so secret it doesn’t officially exist. Within, seven boys suffer from a deadly disease, one that causes them to fear the open air more than anything else, more than any nightmare any child has ever had. They were told to resign themselves to their fate. They were told that finding a cure would be a miracle. They were told they were never going to leave this place as long as they were alive, and that’s what they’ve always believed-- -- until now. Oliver Taylor is leaving the Complex for the first time in fifteen years. He’ll breathe unfiltered air. He’ll know the touch of another human being. He’ll see the world that was denied him. Through a freak twist of fate, he’s gone into total remission. The doctors are baffled by his sudden health, but loathe letting him go for other reasons. Oliver knows too much. He simply can’t be allowed to go free. Jake Danziger, government operative for the Agency, a branch of the intelligence network with supreme authority, is assigned to him. His job? Be a father figure to a boy who has never had one-- -- and watch him. Watch him closely. But how is Jake supposed to do that when Oliver keeps disappearing? And people keep dying? And Oliver himself seems unaware of anything other than his incredible intelligence, his strength, his speed-- -- and his memories. Shadowy flashes of doctors in surgical masks, of shiny scalpels and a lifetime of agony. Is there another truth hidden within all the secrets? Will Oliver survive to save his brothers? And what lies waiting inside the Complex that the doctors fear so much?
