New author, Rick Elkin, has been working on his new book for several years. The book tells his personal journey from youthful idealism to a current state of acute concern for the future of our country and the home of our children. It explores the epidemic of narcissism and apathy so endemic to the Millennial generation, and suggests ways citizens can recalculate the future of our grand experiment in representative democracy.
Elkin became serious abut politics and his community when the World Trade Centers fell. In his mind, the whole world shifted on it’s axis that day. He is of the opinion that America has been slow to recognize how much impact it had on our collective psyche, on our position of leadership in the world, and on the future. Many of the pages of the book urge Americans to WAKE UP and begin to think seriously about solutions to our countries issues that grow more serious by the day. Purchase the paperback first edition online at Amazon.com.

Inbound Marketing: Get Found Using Google, Social Media, and Blogs by Brian Halligan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Good book for the individual that is new to Social Media and Blogging. “Inbound Marketing” covers the essential topics in clear and easy to understand manner that is easy to read. If you already have Facebook and Twitter accounts and you know about Digg and other bookmarking sites, this may not be the book for you. Since the authors clearly know much more in-depth information than what is shared in this first book; I hope they get around to writing a second one for people with more social media experience.
