Gideon’s Corpse by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child Â PS 3566 .R3982 G47 2012Â
A plume of radiation above New York City leads to a warehouse where, it seems, a powerful nuclear bomb was assembled just hours before.
Sifting through the evidence, authorities determine that the unthinkable is about to happen: in ten days, a major American city will be vaporized by a terrorist attack.
Ten days. And Gideon Crew, tracking the mysterious terrorist cell from the suburbs of New York to the mountains of New Mexico, learns the end may be something worse–far worse–than mere Armageddon.
How I Got This Way by Regis Philbin Â Â PN 1992.4 .P45 A3 2011
Sure, heâ€™s an excitable guy.
Sure, he loves to complain.
But Regis Philbin loves life . . . and with the wildly unpredictable one heâ€™s led so far, who wouldnâ€™t? After five decades in show businessâ€”and nearly 17,000 unforgettable hours on televisionâ€”he has a lifetimeâ€™s worth of stories to share.
In this entertaining memoir, the irrepressible Reegeâ€”consummate talk-show host, man-about-town, loving husband, father, and yes, obsessive sports fanâ€”looks back at his years in show business. How I Got This Way is filled with stories of lessons learnedâ€”and elbows rubbedâ€”with extraordinary, and often unsuspecting, teachers: David Letterman; Donald Trump; George Clooney; Howard Stern; Jack Nicholson; legendary Notre Dame coaches Frank Leahy, Ara Parseghian, and Lou Holtz; and, of course, longtime cohosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Kelly â€œPippaâ€ Ripa; as well as his own lovely wife, Joyâ€”to name just a few.
Whether heâ€™s revealing what really drove him â€œbonkersâ€ on the set of Seinfeld, how he survived the first known bomb scare on live TV, what Jack Nicholson said about his beautiful leading ladies during their guysâ€™ night out together, or poignant memories of his last moments with his idol and dear friend, Jack Paar, Regis packs every page with his signature heart, wit, dynamic energy, and gratitude for everything life has brought him.
