2) 41: A Portrait of My Father by George W. Bush (Nov. 11)
A number of books have been written about the 43 men who have served as President of the United States, but none of them have ever told the story of a President and his father, another President. An intimate and unique biography, 41 by George W. Bush covers the entire scope of his father’s life and career, including his service during World War II, his pioneering work in the Texas oil business and his rise in politics. This new book shines a light on both the accomplished statesman and the warm man known by his family. George W. Bush also discusses his father’s influence on him throughout his own life from his childhood in Texas to his decision to go into politics.
3) For Love of Country: What Our Veterans Can Teach Us About Citizenship, Heroism, and Sacrifice by Howard Schultz and Rajiv Chandrasekaran (Nov. 4)
Starbucks CEO and longtime veterans’ advocate Howard Schultz teams up with National Book Award finalist Rajiv Chandrasekaran of The Washington Post to write For Love of Country, an enlightening and inspiring corrective. The two authors honor acts of valor in Afghanistan and Iraq. They tell the stories of two Marines who sacrificed their lives to stop an oncoming truck bomb and protected 33 of their brothers in arms, an Army sergeant who repeatedly ran through gunfire to save the lives of his wounded comrades and a 60-year-old doctor who joined the Navy to honor his fallen son. In For Love of Country, we also see how veterans make vital contributions once they return home through stories of former soldiers who aided resident in rebuilding after natural disasters, the story of a retired general who lead efforts to improve treatments for brain-injured troops and the story of a former infantry officer who traded in a Pentagon job to teach in an inner-city neighborhood. Filled with powerful, unforgettable stories, Schultz and Chandrasekaran demonstrate just how indebted we are to those who protect us and what they have to offer our nation when their military service is done.

Laura Hillenbrand recounts the story of Louie Zamperini, a World War II lieutenant who found himself stranded in the Pacific Ocean after his American military plane crashed. As a boy, he had been a smart delinquent who broke into houses, stole and fought his way through middle school.

After the war reached U.S. soil, he enlisted in the army air corps and embarked upon a journey that tested the very core of his humanity. After Zamperini’s bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean, he was forced to face his greatest challenge yet: surviving 47 days in the open sea only to be captured and interned by the Japanese. Driven to his limits of endurance, Unbroken is a tale of overcoming extreme hardship, fighting brutality with hope, humor, and rebellion. The young adult adaptation of #1 New York Times bestseller Unbroken includes more then 100 black-and-white photos and an exclusive “In Conversation” with Hillenbrand and Zamperini.
