In A Nice Little Place on the North Side, leading columnist George Will returns to baseball with a deeply personal look at his hapless Chicago Cubs and their often beatified home, Wrigley Field, as it turns one hundred years old. This book examines both the unforgettable stories that forged the field’s legend and the larger-than-life characters, from Wrigley and Ruth to Veeck, Durocher, and Banks, who brought it glory, heartbreak, and scandal. Drawing upon his trademark knowledge and inimitable sense of humor, Will also explores his childhood connections to the team, the Cubs’ future, and what keeps longsuffering fans rooting for the home team after so many years of futility. George Will is a columnist, television personality and author. With more than 450 newspapers printing his columns, a biweekly Newsweek column and appearances as a political commentator on ABC, Mr. Will may be one of the most influential writers in America. Mr. Will won the Pulitzer Prize in 1976 for commentary.

Grover Norquist has a plan for cutting taxes for working Americans and for the major corporations that are fleeing for foreign shores. As president of Americans for Tax Reform, Grover Norquist is the go-to expert on taxation. Now, Norquist makes the case for a major tax reform, including a possible flat tax. On the current path, America will coast through inertia to ever-growing government and taxation, as entitlements consume more of our national economy. Norquist presents an alternative future where government spending is reformed, and taxes and the IRS radically curtailed. End the IRS Before It Ends Us lays out what taxation in America should look like. Norquist offers a solution where America thrives, and Americans keep their hard-earned cash.
