“Bourbon, compared with its older cousin, Scotch, has a hint of caramel sweetness to it, making it a natural flavoring agent for dessert. Ms. Hulsman’s recipes for cakes, cookies, custards, ice creams and other confections are not designed for the calorie-shy, but they may well enchant anyone with a sweet tooth and an interest in traditional and modern American cuisine. Her presentations are clear and concise, with short introductory paragraphs preceding her instructions.” —Wall Street Journal
Farley himself has continued to contribute to that conversation writing recently in Real Clear Defense about the Air Force’s new strategic white paper:
“Addressed to ‘Airmen and Airpower Advocates,’ America’s Air Force: A Call to the Future sounds a lot of familiar notes. It hypes the concept of “strategic agility,” a worthy contribution, but ends up defining the service’s contribution in reactive terms. A Call to the Future tackles procurement failures and speaks to the need for partnerships, but fails to contribute seriously to the most gripping procurement problem the Air Force currently faces – the F-35 – or to provide a framework for thinking about the failure of airpower partnerships in Iraq and Afghanistan.” —Real Clear Defense
It is a very different time. There is a desire for instant news. Everything is tweeted and everything is blogged. The 24-hour news cycle really makes people hungry to consume media… You can’t escape the media input now.
“Brilliantly arranged & one of the most informative Lincoln books ever written. A captivating and informative book that belongs on the bookshelf of every lover of history!”–Joseph Garrera, President, The Lincoln Group of New York
“Noted Lincoln scholar Steers succinctly and eloquently debunks 14 popular myths about the Great Emancipator’s life and death.”–Publishers Weekly
“For those wanting answers about Lincoln, this is a fine volume. Leaving humor to the fun front cover, the contents are at once deferential to those seeking basic information and probing about deeper layers of the president’s life. A solid offering displaying expert research.” —Library Journal
“Lincoln Legends is a worthy addition to the library of anyone interested in learning the truth about Lincoln and his heritage.”–Civil War Times
“Edward Steers, by producing a well-written and thoroughly researched and documented book, provides a welcome service to readers who believe that historical accounts must be based on evidence and that fictitious ones should be treated as such. Lincoln Legends is a welcome addition to collections of Lincoln books.”–Journal of the Abraham Lincoln Association
“Through meticulous research, Steers eventually uncovers a larger irony: Lincoln, whom he calls ‘a passionate advocate for truth,’ will forever be shrouded in legend.”–New York Post
