Audacity: How Barack Obama Defied His Critics and Created a Legacy That Will Prevail -On the Street 1/17/2017

One of this years bestselling books to hit the shelves a day after we remember  Martin Luther King is another Audacity Book on Barack Obama’s Yes We can Campaign. It talks about how he strive to pursue his presidential slogan after 2008 amidst his detractors, critics and political enemies.

We will carry this book on the day after MLK at Affordable Books On Line.  An unassailable case that, in the eyes of history, Barack Obama will be viewed as one of America’s best and most accomplished presidents. Written by bestselling author Jonathan ChaitPublisher:  Custom House, Review Quotes:
Chait offers a well-organized, clearly written case that will be valuable to future historians in their assessments. –Kirkus Reviews”

Over the course of eight years, Barack Obama amassed an array of historic achievements. His administration saved the American economy from collapse, expanded health insurance to tens of millions who previously could not afford it, negotiated an unprecedented nuclear deal with Iran, helped craft a groundbreaking international climate accord, reined in Wall Street, launched a fundamental overhaul of our education system, and formulated a new vision of racial progress. He has done all of this despite a left that frequently disdained him as a sellout, and a hysterical right that did everything possible to destroy his agenda, even in instances when they actually agreed with what he was doing before Obama was the one doing it.

While the last historic achievement “Obamacare” is now the ultimate first to be repealed by the incoming administration and Congress, Barack H. Obama is optimistic that it’s revision will still be geared ultimately to the initial goal of providing health insurance to millions of Americans without medical coverage when it was originally conceptualized.

His first act in 2008 was to bail out the auto industry as the precursor to his legacy in stabilizing the great recession in modern time. Now, as the page turns to possibly the most dangerous Commander in Chief in our history, Jonathan Chait, one of America s most incisive and meticulous political commentators, digs deep into Obama s record on major policy fronts the economy, the environment, domestic reform, health care, race, and foreign policy to demonstrate why history will judge our forty-fourth president as among our greatest. Chait explains why so many observers, from cynical journalists to disheartened Democrats, missed the enormous evidence of progress amidst the smoke screen of extremist propaganda and the confinement of short-term perspective. He also reveals why Obama s accomplishments will last despite the reactionary effort by Donald Trump and the Republicans to extinguish them. And in its resounding defense of Obama s tenure, Audacity both makes clear his victories, and what we need to fight for next.

This will be a great reading book in time for the inauguration of the 45th President, Donald Trump on January 20 while watching Barack and Michelle Obama’s historic farewell send of in Marine One from the White House lawn.

Spotlight: American Booksellers Association

indie

The ABA, American Booksellers Association has been the backbone of the bookselling industry especially Indie Bound and Independent Booksellers.

“Founded in 1900, the American Booksellers Association is a national not-for-profit trade organization that works to help independently owned bookstores grow and succeed. ABA’s core members are key participants in their communities’ local economy and culture, and to assist them, ABA provides education, information, business products, and services; creates relevant programs; and engages in public policy and industry advocacy. The Association actively supports and defends free speech and the First Amendment rights of all Americans. A volunteer board of 11 booksellers governs the Association. ABA is headquartered in White Plains, NY.” Excerpt for the American Booksellers Assn website.

There are different tiers and membership levels in the ABA. It is also known for Advocacy Issues and Free Expressions such as pressing issues affecting a new or current bookseller, Issues like Sales Tax, Minimum Wage, Healthcare, Small Business Working Capital and even the fight on the Amazon monopoly as well as big box businesses.

With the onset of Amazon rules the Internet as well as policy and legislations that affect every bookstore owner today, one cannot find the cruel challenges faced by a small independent bookseller without the conglomerative efforts of the ABA.  There are also the professional chapters under the association’s umbrella. Though, there are other associations in the books industry aside, we know for a fact that ABA is indeed the main umbrella in terms of organization.

At Affordable Books @ ADLE International we extremely proud having ABA on our backs. The Indies first program and the different learning bookselling institute had help us increase our knowledge base and education. And proudly we can say that the American Booksellers Association is our association per se.

Affordable Books for All

Such a big mission for making books affordable for all.

  • Today’s Amazon monopoly on books seems to be a hard task on making books affordable.
  • Why is that when Amazon seems to be the cheapest site to buy books?
  • Yes and No. it’s huge drop ship wholesale sellers might be dominating the cheapest price on new and used books. Yet, when your scouting that one hard to find book and the quantity is almost none, these same people are Gods pricing such books as “Gold”. Sometimes looking at one book can be $500 to $3000.
  • As collectible as it may be it’s plain hoarding not to say will a real antiquitarian book collector really buy such a book?
  • So literally the destruction on independent booksellers are we’re trying to make that small profit to survive on a new or used book but it’s impossible to compete as these sellers are selling way lower that the price we buy them from publishers and wholesalers. How they do this is a long explanation but nevertheless it’s their way of doing business.
  • And again for the hard to find out of prints with considerable value valued at the priced of gold is another discussion.

So Affordability for us is competitive pricing while creating that book value, great service and personal buyer connection.

Yes the saga still continues on these monopolies but we’re here to stay our own saga at Affordable books
