1. In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction
Author: by MD Gabor Maté
Published at: North Atlantic Books; Illustrated edition (January 5, 2010)
From bestselling author Gabor Mat, the essential resource for understanding the roots and behaviors of addiction-now with an added introduction by the author. Based on Gabor Mat’s two decades of experience as a medical doctor and his groundbreaking work with the severely addicted on Vancouver’s skid row, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts radically reenvisions this much misunderstood field by taking a holistic approach.
Dr. Mat presents addiction not as a discrete phenomenon confined to an unfortunate or weak-willed few, but as a continuum that runs throughout (and perhaps underpins) our society; not a medical “condition” distinct from the lives it affects, rather the result of a complex interplay among personal history, emotional, and neurological development, brain chemistry, and the drugs (and behaviors) of addiction.
Simplifying a wide array of brain and addiction research findings from around the globe, the book avoids glib self-help remedies, instead promoting a thorough and compassionate self-understanding as the first key to healing and wellness. In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts argues persuasively against contemporary health, social, and criminal justice policies toward addiction and those impacted by it.

5. Get What's Yours – Revised & Updated: The Secrets to Maxing Out Your Social Security (The Get What's Yours Series)
Author: by Laurence J. Kotlikoff
Published at: Simon & Schuster; Revised, Updated edition (May 3, 2016)
Social Security law has changed! Get What’s Yours has been revised and updated to reflect new regulations that took effect on April 29, 2016. Get What’s Yours has proven itself to be the definitive book about how to navigate the forbidding maze of Social Security and emerge with the highest possible benefits.
It is an engaging manual of tactics and strategies written by well-known financial commentators that is unobtainable elsewhere. You could try reading all 2,728 rules of the Social Security system (and the thousands of explanations of these rules), but academia’s Kotlikoff, the popular press’s Moeller, and public television’s Solman explain the Social Security system just as comprehensively, and a lot more comprehensibly.
Moreover, they demonstrate that what you don’t know can seriously hurt you: wrong decisions about which Social Security benefits to apply for cost individual retirees tens of thousands of dollars in lost income every year. (Some of those people are even in the book.

12. The High Cost of Good Intentions: A History of U.S. Federal Entitlement Programs
Author: by John F. Cogan
Published at: Stanford University Press; 1st edition (September 26, 2017)
Federal entitlement programs are strewn throughout the pages of U.S. History, springing from the noble purpose of assisting people who are destitute through no fault of their own. Yet as federal entitlement programs have grown, so too have their inefficiency and their cost.
Neither tax revenues nor revenues generated by the national economy have been able to keep pace with their rising growth, bringing the national debt to a record peacetime level. The High Cost of Good Intentions is the first comprehensive history of these federal entitlement programs.
Combining economics, history, political science, and law, John F. Cogan reveals how the creation of entitlements brings forth a steady march of liberalizing forces that cause entitlement programs to expand. This processas visible in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries as in the present dayis repeated until benefits are extended to nearly all who could be considered eligible, and in turn establishes a new base for future expansions.
13. Social Security Basics: 9 Essentials That Everyone Should Know

The Cure for ComplexityWhen Carroll first started studying Social Security, the massive website and rule book left him feeling like he was trying to drink from a fire hose.
It was just too much information to make sense of all at once, and left him feeling overwhelmed.Sound familiar? Carroll’s later experiences with clients who were distressed, confused, and burned by the Social Security system convinced him that something must be done to help people take the overly complex, verbose, and altogether unruly Social Security rules and distill them down into something simple, actionable, and understandable.
14. The Recovery of Family Life: Exposing the Limits of Modern Ideologies
Author: by Scott Yenor
Published at: Baylor University Press (October 1, 2020)
The Sexual Revolution, which has been underway since the 1950s, is a rolling revolution-a set of unfinishable ambitions, all affecting marriage and family life. Feminists want to liberate women from childrearing as well as the home and build a world beyond gender; progressives aspire to build a society where human beings can choose their natures; and sexual liberation theorists would take human beings beyond repression.
These ideologies have sunk deeply into our culture and our political regime. It is well past time to ask the uncomfortable questions about whether these ideologies betray human nature and undermine human happiness. The Recovery of Family Life defends marriage and family life while exposing the limits and blind spots in these powerful revolutionary ideologies.
After suggesting a general framework within which to understand the ends and means of family policy, Scott Yenor explores what a liberal society should seek to accomplish in marriage and family policy. The framework is applied to some of today’s most important public policy debates on such controversial topics as gay rights, pornography, population decline, women’s equality, rape law, the age of consent, and welfare state politics.
