American cartel : inside the battle to bring down the opioid industry / Higham, Scott

"AMERICAN CARTEL is an unflinching and deeply documented dive into the culpability of the drug companies behind the staggering death toll of the opioid epidemic. It follows of a small band of DEA agents led by Joe Rannazzisi, a tough-talking New Yorker who had spent a storied 30 years bringing down bad guys, along with a band of lawyers led by West Virginia native Paul Farrell Jr. who fought to hold the drug industry to account in the face of the worst man-made drug epidemic in American history. It is the story of underdogs prevailing over corporate greed and political cowardice, persevering in the face of predicted failure, and how they found some semblance of justice for the families of the dead with the most complex civil litigation in American history. The lawyers and investigators discovered hundreds of thousands of confidential corporate emails and memos during courtroom combat with legions of white-shoe law firms defending the opioid industry. One breathtaking disclosure after another-from emails that mocked addicts to invoices chronicling the rise of pill mills--showed the indifference of big business to the epidemic's toll. Its narrative approach echoes work such as A Civil Action and The Insider, moving dramatically between corporate boardrooms, courthouses, lobbying firms, DEA field offices and Capitol Hill while capturing the human toll of the epidemic on America's streets. AMERICAN CARTEL is the story of those who were on the front lines of the fight to stop the human carnage. Along the way, they suffer a string of defeats, some of their careers destroyed by the very same government officials who swore to uphold the law, before they finally prevail over some of the most powerful corporate and political influences in the nation"--Provided by publisher.

Baby steps millionaires : how ordinary people built extraordinary wealth--and how you can too / Ramsey, Dave

"You can baby step your way to becoming a millionaire. Most people know Dave Ramsey as the guy who did stupid with a lot of zeros on the end. He made his first million in his twenties-the wrong way-and then went bankrupt. That's when he set out to learn God's ways of managing money and developed the Ramsey Baby Steps. Following these steps, Dave became a millionaire again-this time the right way. After thirty years and millions of lives changed, the evidence is undeniable: if you follow the Baby Steps, you will become a millionaire. In Baby Steps Millionaire, you will . . . * Discover how anyone can become a millionaire, no matter their starting point * Take a deeper look at Baby Step 4 to learn how Dave invests and builds wealth * Learn how to bust through the barriers that prevent people from becoming millionaires * Hear true stories from ordinary people who dug themselves out of debt and built wealth. Baby Steps Millionaires isn't a book that tells the secrets of the rich. It doesn't teach complicated financial concepts reserved only for the elite. As a matter of fact, this information is straightforward, really practical, and maybe even a little boring. But the life you lead if you follow the Baby Steps is anything but boring! You don't need a large inheritance or the winning lottery number to become a millionaire. Anyone can do it-even today. For those who are ready, it's game on!"--Provided by publisher.

Disability friendly : how to move from clueless to inclusive / Kemp, John D.

"Although progress has been made around equality for marginalized groups defined by race, gender, sexual orientation and others - most organizations' Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) efforts do not include people with disabilities. Although 90% of organizations claim to prioritize diversity, only 4% consider disability in DE&I initiatives. Yet people with disabilities make up 15% of the population - about 1 billion people worldwide. They are all too often overlooked. DISABILITY FRIENDLY starts with the roadblocks able people have to understanding and engaging people with disabilities, and how to get over the initial discomfort many able people have. It goes on to explain how businesses, schools, government, churches, and other organizations can open up to the contributions and talents of people with disabilities and create a culture of inclusion and reasonable accommodation. It explains the leader's role and how to communicate a vision for change that inspires others. Finally, it explains how to engage, recruit, and hire people with disabilities. This groundbreaking book will open the world's eyes to the overlooked potential of people with disabilities"--Provided by publisher.
