From the #1 New York Times bestselling authors, a brand-new series about the Cold War—and a different breed of warrior.

In the first weeks after World War II, James D. Cronley, Jr., is recruited for a new enterprise that will eventually be transformed into something called the CIA. For a new war has already begun against an enemy that is bigger, smarter, and more vicious: the Soviet Union.

The Soviets have hit the ground running, and Cronley’s job is to help frustrate them, harass them, and spy on them any way he can. But his first assignment might be his last. He’s got only seven days to extract a vital piece of information from a Soviet agent, and he’s already managed to rile up his superior officers. If he fails now, his intelligence career could be the shortest in history.

Because there are enemies everywhere—and, as Cronley is about to find out, some of them wear the same uniform he does…

After 9/11, the United States government embarked on an unprecedented effort to protect America. The result has been calamitous: after ten years of unparalleled spending and growth, the result is that a system put in place to keep America safe may in fact be putting us in even greater danger-but we don't know because it's all Top Secret.

In TOP SECRET AMERICA, award-winning journalists Dana Priest and William M. Arkin lift the curtain on this clandestine universe. From the companies and agencies keeping track of American citizens and the military commanders building America's first "top secret city" to a hidden army within the U.S. military more secret than the CIA, this new national security octopus has become a self-sustaining "Fourth Branch" of government. A tour de force of investigative journalism, TOP SECRET AMERICA presents a fascinating and disturbing account of government run amok and a war on terrorism gone wrong in a post-9/11.

The Secrets Of Top Students Tips Tools And Techniques For Acing High School And College

Unlock your academic potential with tips, tools, and techniques from some of the best students in the country.  
Author Stefanie Weisman was a top student all her life, graduating first in her class from Stuyvesant High School and Columbia University and getting degrees in both history and computer science. But it wasn't because she was a "natural" or smarter than everyone else -- it was because she had developed powerful and time-saving techniques for studying, taking notes, writing papers, taking tests, and much, much more, which anyone can put into practice!

The Secrets of Top Students is a conversational, down-to-earth guide for high school and college students on how to maximize their learning and get the grades they want. Full of innovative strategies from Weisman and 45 other top students -- including Rhodes scholars, Goldwater scholars, Fulbright award winners, college valedictorians, Intel Science Fair finalists, and a National Spelling Bee champion -- this book will appeal to students of all levels, giving them the advice they need from a voice they can trust.

The Secrets of Top Students answers questions such as:
  • What are the Top 50 Tips for acing exams?
  • How can you take killer notes?
  • What are three game-changing learning techniques?
  • How should you structure a paper?
  • How should you read for maximum comprehension?
  • What should you expect from STEM classes?
  • What is the first thing you should do when taking a math test?
  • What is an often overlooked place for coming up with a thesis?
  • How can you use mantras to get better grades?
  • How can you manage the stress of school?
  • What music should you listen to while studying?
  • Should you bring your laptop to class?
  • Why is it bad to be a perfectionist?
  • What motivates top students to achieve academic success?
  • How can you prevent procrastination?
  • What foods should you eat to boost your brainpower?
  • How can sleep, diet, and exercise affect your GPA?
  • How much do top students really study?
  • And much, much more.
Weisman's book is unique for a number of reasons:

As the number one student in both high school and college, she has firsthand knowledge of how to excel in school.

She has degrees in subjects as varied as computer science, history, and art history.  Her broad experience in science and math, as well as the humanities, led her to include sections on how to survive STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), how to ace homework and tests in these subjects, and more. 

Her survey of forty-five other outstanding students provides unique insight into what it takes to succeed academically. 

Weisman received her latest degree in 2011, so she pays special attention to the pros and cons of technology in the classroom.

Weisman's holistic view of academic excellence has led her to include sections on the mind-body connection (diet, nutrition, and exercise), how much students should study, and how to get and stay motivated.  She also discusses how students can incorporate the latest research on education and learning into their everyday study habits.

Her book includes techniques that work for both high school and college students.  In high school, students should be learning skills that are transferable to college.  For those in college now, it's not too late to learn good study skills or improve on the ones they already have.  Plus, a lot of high schools these days are just as hard as college, if not harder!

The Secrets of Top Students includes the following chapters:
Chapter 1: What's My Motivation?
Chapter 2: Time Management 101
Chapter 3: The Mind-Body Connection
Chapter 4: How to Play the Game (Navigating Academia)
Chapter 5: In the Classroom
Chapter 6: Learning to Read (Again)
Chapter 7: Honing Your Homework Skills
Chapter 8: How to Write a Paper
Chapter 9: Getting Ready for the Test
Chapter 10: The Art of Taking Tests
