Eisenhower, 1961-1969,by David Eisenhowerand Julie Nixon Eisenhower, with Arthur Moreyas narrator. Tantor Audio is publisher. After President Dwight D. Eisenhower left office in 1961, he retired to a farm in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Living next door was his teenage grandson, David; they would be neighbors for the rest of the decade. Based on personal stories, letters, diaries, and the reminiscences of Eisenhower’s closest friends, Going Home to Glory is both an intimate chronicle of the elder statesman’s final years and a coming of age story.  In this book, Eisenhower emerges as both a beloved and forbidding figure, whether relaxing at home or playing golf, advising presidents Kennedy and Johnson and 1968 presidential hopeful Richard Nixon, or rendering sage advice to young people—including the author. Set amidst the turbulent 60s, the author describes Eisenhower's many efforts to influence a bewildered nation on civil rights and Vietnam.  David Eisenhower's first book about his grandfather, Eisenhower at War, was a best seller and a finalist for the 1987 Pulitzer Prize in History. Going Home to Glory, a personal sequel, offers completely new insight into one of the country's most respected presidents.https://www.amazon.com/Going-Home-to-Glory-audiobook/dp/B004991TDU/ref=sr_1_1?crid=2SG2LHZXE3ODR&dchild=1&keywords=going+home+to+glory+eisenhower&qid=1612896601&s=books&sprefix=going+home+eisenhower%2Cstripbooks%2C150&sr=1-1

Diana B. Henriques (Author), Pam Ward (Narrator), Tantor Audio (Publisher)https://www.amazon.com/Wizard-Lies-Bernie-Madoff-Death/dp/B0058B98KO/ref=tmm_aud_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1567039217&sr=1-1Who is Bernie Madoff, and how did he pull off the biggest Ponzi scheme in history? These questions have fascinated people ever since the news broke about the respected New York financier who swindled his friends, relatives, and other investors out of $65 billion through a fraud that lasted for decades. Many have speculated about what might have happened or what must have happened, but no reporter has been able to get the full story - until now.          In The Wizard of Lies, Diana B. Henriques of the New York Times - who has led the paper's coverage of the Madoff scandal since the day the story broke - has written the definitive book on the man and his scheme, drawing on unprecedented access and more than 100 interviews with people at all levels and on all sides of the crime, including Madoff's first interviews for publication since his arrest. Henriques also provides vivid details from the various lawsuits, government investigations, and court filings that will explode the myths that have come to surround the story.        A true-life financial thriller, The Wizard of Lies contrasts Madoff's remarkable rise on Wall Street, where he became one of the country's most trusted and respected traders, with dramatic scenes from his accelerating slide toward self-destruction. It is also the most complete account of the heartbreaking personal disasters and landmark legal battles triggered by Madoff's downfall - the suicides, business failures, fractured families, shuttered charities.
