America Gives, and America Takes: Alien Cultures and Judicial Systems in Focus By George C. Udeozor
America Gives . . . . And America Takes . . . . is as much a story about the highs and lows of one man's American Dreams as those of countless others who fled their countries of origin to pursue the promise they were certain to achieve in America. As the author finds out, because of unforeseen cultural conflicts, not all American Dreams which become reality may remain so for long. This book is non-fiction based on the life of the author and the actual events that took place to the best of the author's memory and perception as they happened. The author's account are based on his views, ideals, opinions, and understanding of those events and the people involved. Any reference to persons, agencies, governments, or any entity is the opinion of the author pertaining to the events which took place as they relate to him. The book provides no definitive statement or conclusion as to the character and intentions of each individual or entity mentioned in the book. The readers may make their own determination and opinion based on the information provided, as well as obtaining additional information concerning the facts, from their own further investigation.

About the Author

George Udeozor is the unlikely author of this literary marvel which takes the reader on a breath-taking journey through the chilling nightmares of the darkness and evil that may lurk at the edges of the American Dream. Like most success-driven immigrants, the author, after a childhood plagued by civil war and economic hardship, worked his way through High School in Nigeria and College in the United States before launching a career in banking with Barclays Bank of California, Los Angeles. Although successful as a banker, the author could not resist the lure of profit and adventure in the International Business arena. His quick success as a Finance/Defense Consultant and marriage to his beautiful wife, a glamorous Medical Doctor gave the appearance of nothing less than the actualized American dream. In this book, the author tells the story of his plight from one nation to another and the struggles of political power intertwined with culture which appears to be at the base of each judicial system and those in its charge.

The Oxford Shakespeare: The Complete Works By William Shakespeare
Hailed by The Washington Post as "a definitive synthesis of the best editions" and by The Times of London as "a monument to Shakespearean scholarship," The Oxford Shakespeare is the ultimate anthology of the Bard's work: the most authoritative edition of the plays and poems ever published.

Now, almost two decades after the original volume, Oxford is proud to announce a thoroughly updated second edition, including for the first time the texts of The Reign of Edward III and Sir Thomas More, recognizing these two plays officially as authentic works by Shakespeare. This beautiful collection is the product of years of full-time research by a team of British and American scholars and represents the most thorough examination ever undertaken of the nature and authority of Shakespeare's work. The editors reconsidered every detail of the text in the light of modern scholarship and they thoroughly re-examined the earliest printed versions of the plays, firmly establishing the canon and chronological order of composition. All stage directions have been reconsidered in light of original staging, and many new directions for essential action have been added. This superb volume also features a brief introduction to each work as well as an illuminating General Introduction. Finally, the editors have added a wealth of secondary material, including an essay on language, a list of contemporary allusions to Shakespeare, an index of Shakespearean characters, a glossary, a consolidated bibliography, and an index of first lines of the Sonnets.

Compiled by the world's leading authorities, packed with information, and attractively designed, The Oxford Shakespeare is the gold standard of Shakespearean anthologies.

Failing Forward: Turning Mistakes into Stepping Stones for Success By John Maxwell
Are some people born to achieve anything they want while others struggle? Call them lucky, blessed, or possessors of the Midas touch. What is the real reason for their success? Is it family background, wealth, greater opportunities, high morals, an easy childhood?

New York Times best-selling author John C. Maxwell has the answer: The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.

Most people are never prepared to deal with failure. Maxwell says that if you are like him, coming out of school, you feared it, misunderstood it, and ran away from it. But Maxwell has learned to make failure his friend, and he can teach you to do the same.

"I want to help you learn how to confidently look the prospect of failure in the eye and move forward anyway," says Maxwell. "Because in life, the question is not if you will have problems, but how you are going to deal with them. Stop failing backward and start failing forward!"

Hit Makers: How Things Become Popular Paperback by Derek Thompson
Drawing on ancient history and modern headlines - from vampire lore and Brahms's Lullaby to Instagram - Thompson explores the economics and psychology of why certain things become extraordinarily popular. With incisive analysis and captivating storytelling, he reveals that, though blockbuster films, Internet memes and number-one songs seem to have come out of nowhere, hits actually have a story and operate by certain rules. People gravitate towards familiar surprises: products that are bold and innovative, yet instantly comprehensible. Whether he is uncovering the secrets of JFK and Barack Obama's speechwriters or analysing the unexpected reasons for the success of Fifty Shades of Grey, Thompson goes beyond the cultural phenomena that make the news by revealing the desires that make us all human. While technology might change, he shows, our innate preferences do not, and throughout history hits have held up a mirror to ourselves. From the dawn of Impressionist art to the future of Snapchat, from small-scale Etsy entrepreneurs to the origin of Star Wars, Derek Thompson tells the fascinating story of how culture happens - and where genius lives

Aké: The Years of Childhood: Wole Soyinka’s Memoir
Aké, the first volume of Nigerian Nobel prize winner Wole Soyinka's (possibly slightly fictionalized) autobiography, is the first book of his I've read. For most authors, an autobiography is probably not the best place to start; most of the time, I want a reason to care about what the author has done before getting into his life story.

In this case, though, it doesn't disappoint at all. Aké chronicles young Wole's childhood up to about 11 years of age, and given that he was born in 1934, that's a fairly tumultuous time. While the world war rages somewhere just beyond the horizon, Nigeria is somewhere in between the old ways and the new ones, stuck between old tribal kingdoms and the new world, the old religion and Christianity, the old language and English, still ruled by the British but beginning to find a new identity of its own - which isn't an easy process, as shown by the occasional sobering flash-forward to Nigeria in the early 80s.

Ake tells the story of Wole Soyinka's first eleven years as a child (1934–1945), a period that coincides with major historical events in Nigeria, and around the world – World War II and the famous Women's Uprising in Egbaland, an event in which the author played the role of a courier.

Told, of course, with the benefit of hindsight, the story of Ake is rich, and the wit is bold and blithe. His touching and vivid evocation of the colourful sights, sounds, and aromas of the world that shaped him is lyrical, laced with humour and adorned with the sheer delight of a child's-eye view.

This account contains invaluable and delightful vignettes of some of the individuals and events which were to shape the future political and human rights activist, and Nobel Laureate.
