1- Undisputed Truth by Mike Tyson

“Mike Tyson” has defied stereotypes, expectations, and a lot of conventional wisdom during his three decades in the public eye. Tyson grew up to become one of the most ferocious boxers of all time and the youngest heavyweight champion ever. But his brilliance in the ring was often compromised by reckless behavior. Yet even after hitting rock bottom the man who once admitted being addicted to everything fought his way back and achieved triumphant success.

2- Transcription Novel

In this inventive thriller, a naïve young secretary lands in the middle of a clandestine fifth column operation run by “MI5” in World War II, London, where she is recruited to transcribe the recorded meetings of Nazi sympathizers.

“Atkinson’s” use of comedy in the first half of the novel is unexpected and inspired and when the heroine is assigned her own false identity and charged with befriending a middle aged woman who is a Nazi sympathizer, the humor tilts toward the madcap.

3- “Silent Spring”

“Silent Spring” is as groundbreaking controversial and relevant today as it was when it was first published in 1962. It’s strange to read “Silent Spring” after more than 50 years from its publication in a handsome new edition from the America library .

Now it seems like a dispatch from disappeared world in large part because of “Silent Spring”.

Carson’s book appeared first in serialized form in the New Yorker in June 1962, drawing much attention from other media and a promise by then-former president ”Kennedy” to investigate the claims in this book. A few weeks after Kennedy’s promise, the book itself came out.

The book jumped to the best-seller book list and stayed there for months, selling more than 600,000 copies in it’s first six months.
