Summary: Keep Sharp by Sanjay Gupta, MD

Summary

Keep Sharp is Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s comprehensive guide to cognitive dysfunction disease in its various forms, including dementia, its prevention, treatment, and strategies to cope. Gupta bravely initiated a noble and global quest to gather up and analyze how doctors tackle brain function problems and cognitive challenges. He holds an impressive list of characters and anecdotes from his efforts. Keep Sharp appeals to a diversified bevy of listeners as a double gem for popular science and medical advice. Although avoiding medical jargon is impossible for cognitive dysfunction, Gupta shows us a simplified, engaging, and compelling story built around one of the most complex objects we know of - the human brain.  Defining his terms right out of the gate gives the listener what they need to understand and act upon. The listener begins to learn how physical and mental activities affect our brains. Boosting one’s brain prowess with medically established methods to help prevent Alzheimer's arises as a dominant theme. Dr. Gupta sculpted his narrative's contents with plenty of advice for those who show symptoms of the first stages of dementia. He puts his arm around the listener, tells him or her how to get the help they need, secure a proper diagnosis, and shows how to come to grips with the most adverse effects. Gupta pieces together valuable resources in the final chapter to guide those who carry a diagnosis of dementia. Though his approach is predictably straightforward and practical, he infuses it with the empathy and understanding of a good doctor. His goal: bring the issue of Alzheimer’s, its significance, its challenges, and possible solutions to a broader audience. This book is not intended as medical advice. If you have health problems, consult with your physician. Rather than replace Dr. Gupta's book, it serves to complement it.

Summary: United States of Socialism: Dinesh D'Souza

Summary

Warning!: This is a best seller summary and analysis of the United States of Socialism by New York Times best-selling author Dinesh D’Sousa. It is not the original book, nor intended to replace it. If you are a Democrat don't listen to this audiobook because you would learn many characteristics about your party that are embarrassingly despicable. If you are to survive at all as a Conservative or Independent, then this is a must-listen. Your family will always live under constant attack. Dinesh D’Sousa writes to expose the Democrat socialists, their “Socialist Dream” for what a “racket” it is and then proceeds to bury them. He shares how the socialists first arose, how their diabolical techniques are infused with a form of alienating “Identity Socialism,” and how we must rally behind Trump's lead to stop them. Use this best-selling summary and analysis audiobook to: Decide if the original book is for you. Hint: It is! Get chapter-by-chapter main points and takeaways. Gain a better understanding. Learn what you must know in 15-30 minutes. Refresh your memory of the parent book. Enjoy occasional editorial comments. Scott Campbell penned many related books on socialism, Marxism, the Deep State, the Obamas, and Trump but is not associated with D'Sousa or his publisher in any way. Scott Campbell is wholly responsible for the content of the summary audiobook. If you are the author, publisher, or representative of the original work, please contact scampbell@whitehatrevolution.com with any concerns or comments. Identity politics is a political strategy. People of a particular identity bond into alliances to exclude all others. Race, class, religion, gender, sexual orientation, and socio-cultural background are common identities. There might be an intersection of several identities. White, Christian, heterosexual male, middle-class, and Conservative is the intersectional identity who the socialists want to alienate and annihilate. It also describes many of President Trump’s supporters. For a replacement, they might want a non-White, Muslim, transgender female, lower class, and Democrat - someone who, solely because of their perceived identity, will blindly follow Democrats. Identity politics' goal is to force group agendas upon others to bring about socialist “change” towards establishing total control of a society and its wealth. Identity intersectional politics is a strategy adopted by socialists to intentionally create divides and conflicts. The Obama administration in its second term became experts at it. Democrat identity socialists are trying to magnify and harness this natural array of divisions to create a majority coalition to implement their desired changes. Dinesh D'Sousa is blessed with one of the most brilliant and analytical minds of our time. As a devoted supporter of our Founding Fathers, the Bill of Rights, and our Constitution, he champions Conservative causes. He defines Conservatism as holding sacred the principles of the American Revolution and promoting the "self-made man". Embedded in free markets, the self-made man brims with ideas that lead to invention and advancement. D'Sousa likes to recognize Ben Franklin and Frederick Douglas as prime examples of self-made men. He likes Abraham Lincoln for representing the virtues of the American Revolution and the concept and importance of equal rights for all. D’Sousa migrated to America as an exchange student. He wanted to see our middle-class abundance and experience our relative freedom from corruption. He was in for a big surprise.

Summary: Rage: Bob Woodward: Disloyal: Michael Cohen

Summary

Pouncing on the moment that President Trump became informed in the Oval Office that the Covid-19 pandemic would most likely become the most significant threat to national security during his Presidency, best-selling author Bob Woodward has woven the story and Trump's other challenges into an anti-Trump tirade that sometimes backfires. Woodard gets frustrated often in his interviews with Trump, and sometimes yells at Trump and gets distressed.  Michael Cohen admits he was mesmerized by Trump like a cult member, began to see himself breaking his moral code, but stuck with Trump for money, power, and fame. Cohen boasts that he knew Trump better than his own family and it was not a pretty sight. He saw Trump as a sociopathic mobster boss who would do anything to win and destroy anybody who challenged him in his quest for success. Cohen dumps a truck load of Trump family skeletons at the listener's feet and then picks them up one by one and executes a meticulous show-and-tell.  He also shows Trump’s uncanny strengths, skills, and abilities and why he thought, originally, that Trump would be a good President. Cohen spent years encouraging him to run. This is a Best Seller Summary and Analysis by Scott Campbell. It is not the original book.  Important books demand widespread listening and understanding.

Summary and Expansion: 1984: George Orwell

Summary

Written in 1944, the novel entitled 1984 proved to be George Orwell’s most chilling prophecy. Timelier than ever, Orwell’s dystopian vision of a government that will do anything to control the narrative forms the basis of one of the greatest novels of all time. 1984 earned its nomination as one of America’s most-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read. This audiobook offer uniqueness, and time and cost-efficiency. Summaries and Expansions, filled with insight, and some added material most relevant to Orwell’s topics and themes, become yours to enjoy. Many of his most famous scenes and passages form a solid foundation for analysis. Protagonist Winston Smith, a character arising from Orwell’s experience as a journalist during World War II, laments: “The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command”. Winston Smith toes the Party line, rewriting history to satisfy the demands of the Ministry of Truth - a job similar to the one Orwell had with the BBC. With each falsehood that he writes and each truth that he buries, Winston grows to hate the Party that seeks power for its own sake and persecutes those who dare to commit thoughtcrimes against it. He starts to think for himself but can’t escape the fact that Big Brother is constantly watching and listening. Even thinking of writing a personal journal, or falling in love, is punishable by death. Winston writes a journal and falls in love. Game on Winston challenges Big Brother’s Doublethink, which became crafted to brainwash the populous into submission. War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength. A stunning and haunting work that blessed us as a unique literary masterpiece, 1984 creates an imaginary world that is both convincing and unforgettable, from beginning to end. There is no denial of the novel’s hold on the imagination of entire generations or the influence of its warnings - a power that seems to gain strength, not lose it, with time. Orwell’s 1984 rose to the top of best seller lists in late 2020 and 2021 because the world continues to evolve from the one which gave him his experiences and motives during the war towards one which matches his gloomy predictions in a most uncanny fashion. Many of us become confronted by oppressive governments worldwide that seek censorship like Big Brother. Now Big Brother wields even more advanced technology. George Orwell (a pen name for Eric Blair; 1903-50) was born in Bengal and educated at Eton. After service with the Indian Imperial Police in Burma, he returned to Europe to earn his living penning novels and essays. Considering himself more of a journalist than an author, Orwell proved to be essentially a political writer who focused his attention on his own times, a man of intense feelings and intense hate. An opponent of totalitarianism, he served in the Loyalist forces in the Spanish Civil War. Besides his classic Animal Farm, his works include a novel based on his experiences as a colonial policeman, Burmese Days, two firsthand studies of poverty, Down and Out in Paris and London and The Road to Wigan Pier, and an account of his experiences in the Spanish Civil War, Homage to Catalonia. The extraordinary novel of political prophecy whose title and terms became part of our language, 1984 offers a clever way to explore the history and nature of the oppressive and cruel regimes involved in World War II and after.
