In this beautiful collection of memories and reflections, Tom Brokaw speaks of growing up in the American heartland and of the people, the culture, and the values that have shaped his life. He describes his childhood and youth in South Dakota from 1940 to 1960 and his parents´ early lives during the ´20s and ´30s. Brokaw also reflects on the American experience, as he has lived and observed it, during the central decades of the 20th century. Born near Bristol, South Dakota, in 1940, Tom loved to talk from an early age. His first public performance was at the age of four: ´´My father stood at the back of the hall and held up a silver dollar. If he could hear my every word, he said, I would get that silver dollar.´´ After the war, the family moved to Pickstown, a new town built on the Missouri River to house workers constructing the Fort Randall Dam. The move to Pickstown became a pivotal decision in the Brokaws´ lives, as the family began to live out the American dream of community, relative economic security, middle-class pleasures, and, for the Brokaw sons, a good education, American Legion baseball teams in the summer, and a boy´s life outdoors. When Tom was 15, the Brokaws moved to Yankton, and there two events occurred that were to shape Tom Brokaw´s life: To earn money after school, and influenced by his mother´s daily devotion to the Today show with Dave Garroway and The Huntley-Brinckley Report, Brokaw got a job at the local radio station, spinning the new rock-n-roll records; and he met Meredith Auld, a classmate at Yankton High, who would eventually become his wife. As he describes his pilgrimage, Brokaw also reflects on what brought him and so many Americans to lead lives that are a long way from home, yet are forever affected by it. 1. Language: English.

A growing chorus of prominent voices in Congress and elsewhere are calling for the expansion of our Social Security system - people who know that Social Security will not ´´go broke´´ and does not add a penny to the national debt. Social Security Works! will amplify these voices and offer a powerful antidote to the three-decade-long, billionaire-funded campaign to make us believe that this vital institution is destined to collapse. It isn´t. From the Silent Generation to Baby Boomers, from Generation X to Millennials and Generation Z, we all have a stake in understanding the real story about Social Security. Critical to addressing the looming retirement crisis that will affect two-thirds of today´s workers, Social Security is a powerful program that can help stop the collapse of the middle class, lessen the pressure squeezing families from all directions, and help end the upward redistribution of wealth that has resulted in perilous levels of inequality. All Americans deserve to have dignified retirement years as well as an umbrella to protect them and their families in the event of disability or premature death. Sure to be a game-changer, Social Security Works! cogently presents the issues and sets forth both an agenda and a political strategy that will benefit us all. At stake are our values and the kind of country we want for ourselves and for those that follow.

In a low yield world where government bonds pay next to no interest, S&P 500 stocks pay little more than that in dividends, the Canadian government taxes income trusts, and even real estate investment trusts are suffering cash flow problems, one type of security still stands as a beacon of hope to income investors. Master Limited Partnerships or MLPs 9% yields...that increase 9% annually... quarterly distributions almost guaranteed . . . capital gains that leave the S&P 500 in the dust... tax protection... business profits protected by federal government regulation . . . profit from the energy sector without the volatility of market prices because MLPs are paid by volume not final price. Until now, the information available to investors has been scanty. There´ve been only chapters in books. One prominent financial advice company launched a newsletter devoted to them, but the price tag is $399 annually. The Internet contains summary but incomplete articles and snatches of advice (some good, some inaccurate). Finally, investors can learn all about these terrific investments - their rewards and risks; the paperwork hassles and how to get around them; and how to invest in them using both taxable and tax-deferred accounts. In one convenient volume for one low price. This book is the first and only devoted solely to Master Limited Partnerships. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Patrick Ross.
