Dirty Thirty Excerpt :

Dirty Thirty - PB By: Billie Proffitt With a plethora of experiences by her late twenties, Billie Proffitt still felt overwhelmed by the pressure of deciding what she wanted. Raised that well-being is more valuable than the “should’s” of society, she examined not only the roads less traveled, but also the ones that nobody else saw. Her willingness to forge on even as these were littered with pitfalls, paint these non-chronological stories which make up the thirty most important lessons she learned by thirty. Believing as author Natalie Babbitt suggested, that it isn’t death to be feared, “but rather the unlived life,” this gifted storyteller marks the up’s, down’s, backward and eventual steps forward in life that span the range of human emotions. Billie is a bright, quirky, honest young woman who captures the beauty of the human condition with passion and humor - insight and determination. Dirty Thirty doesn’t evoke wistful regret for life’s lost opportunities, but instead inspires reaching toward the great days ahead that yet have to be lived.

NYPD Confidential Excerpt :

For years, the police commissioner and the mayor of New York City have duked it out for publicity, credit, and power. Some have translated their stardom into success after leaving office, while others have been hung out to dry. In the battle for control of the country's most powerful police force, these high-status government officials have often chosen political expediency over public honesty. The result is a legacy of systemic corruption and cover-ups that is nothing less than shocking. Respected journalist Leonard Levitt has covered the NYPD for New York Newsday, and the New York Post among other papers. His columns have made him persona non grata in police headquarters. In NYPD Confidential, he reveals everything he's discovered throughout his decades-long career. With amazing details of backroom deals and larger-than-life powerbrokers, Levitt lays bare the backstabbing, power-grabs, and chaotic internal investigations that have run the NYPD's reputation into the ground in the past—and the forces conspiring to do so once again.

Chemical Free Skin Health Excerpt :

This is a perspective on the chemical world we live in and why I believe all of us should be concerned for our lives, the lives of our families, friends and the animals that share our lives. It is not intended to scare you, although it might. It is really to draw attention to what our lives have become and the chemicals, companies and products that rule it. Our skin is our largest and most vulnerable organ. Love it and it will love you. Protect it and it will protect you. Abuse it and it will shorten your life.There have been more chemicals developed in the last twenty years than in all of mankind. Of the thousands of chemicals in use in the cosmetic, personal care and household products industry, less than 1% have been tested for safety. A few years ago I read that ~63% of American claim to have a skin disorder. Connection? Probably! There are no US Government regulations for skin care or household products.What I have come to believe is that more than 50% of skin disorders are misdiagnosed and are caused by chemicals in the products we use every day.
