THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN THE WORLD
Silicon Valley billionaire Mike Gold has an audacious idea: Provide everyone on Earth cheap, clean energy by beaming solar power from the Moon. He wants to fund the development and startup costs for this endeavor through donated funds, including a billion dollars of his own money.

On the other side of the world, the secretive ruling council of the Saudi Royal Family, the Sab’a, decrees that Mike Gold is the most dangerous man in the world. They instruct the man they call Scorpion to declare all-out but covert war on Mike Gold. He must annihilate Mike Gold and his blasphemous idea.

As Mike starts his new venture, Global Lunar Electrical Energy (GLEE), he finds enemies everywhere. Friends of the Moon claims Gold and his billionaire cronies want to rape the Moon, like they have the Earth.

Now Mike Gold must mobilize all his resources to counterattack or succumb to the Gold Jihad.

Memoir
Through The Golden Doors by Barbara Bookman
The history of a Jewish-American family, from Brest-Litovsk to Brooklyn to Long Island to California
Edited by Phil Bookman

Barbara Bookman was a first-generation American born in Brooklyn, New York in 1920. She died in 1996 at the age of 75 in Walnut Creek, California. She was a wife, mother, grandmother, friend, student, leader, school-builder, public servant, and role-model for women long before the adjective liberation was applied to them. She was well into her 60s when she began writing seriously. She wrote from the heart, as she did all things. Her memoir, Through The Golden Doors, was written during her last decade. It tells the story of a Jewish-American family, from the pogroms of Brest-Litovsk at the dawn of the 20th century to Brooklyn and beyond, through two world wars and the Great Depression.
