Marijuana is the world's most popular illicit drug, with hundreds of millions of regular users worldwide. One in three Americans has smoked pot at least once. The Drug Enforcement Agency estimates that Americans smoke five million pounds of marijuana each year. And yet marijuana remains largely misunderstood by both its advocates and its detractors. To some, marijuana is an insidious "stepping-stone" drug, enticing the inexperienced and paving the way to the inevitable abuse of harder drugs. To others, medical marijuana is an organic means of easing the discomfort or stimulating the appetite of the gravely ill. Others still view marijuana, like alcohol, as a largely harmless indulgence, dangerous only when used immoderately. All sides of the debate have appropriated the scientific evidence on marijuana to satisfy their claims. What then are we to make of these conflicting portrayals of a drug with historical origins dating back to 8,000 B.C.? Understanding Marijuana examines the biological, psychological, and societal impact of this controversial substance. What are the effects, for mind and body, of long-term use? Are smokers of marijuana more likely than non-users to abuse cocaine and heroine? What effect has the increasing potency of marijuana in recent years had on users and on use? Does our current legal policy toward marijuana make sense? Earleywine separates science from opinion to show how marijuana defies easy dichotomies. Tracing the medical and political debates surrounding marijuana in a balanced, objective fashion, this book will be the definitive primer on our most controversial and widely used illicit substance.

By the end of the 1996 season - the deadliest in the history of Mount Everest - 13 climbers in all had perished. If it wasn't the weather, and if it wasn't just the presence of journalists, what else fatally compromised Rob Hall's team, the Adventure Consultants? Were they really on a winning wicket when things -suddenly- went south on summit day, or was something else insidiously eating at the team's ability to perform all along? If so, what was it? What was the actual psychology that drove a record number of strong, brave men, and a Japanese woman, to certain death? On May 10 two big teams were locked in a deadly rivalry but exactly what was the psychology of this rivalry on the level of the ordinary client climber? This is the meat and potatoes of NEVEREST II. How did three doctors, a publisher and a lawyer gel with two blue collar workers and a Japanese woman? What was the impact of the merge on summit day, and of one [American] team ultimately -winning- the charge up the world's highest mountain? Did the -losing- team also quickly lose morale, including the urgency to take care of their teammates? Did losing a leader leave a lethal leadership vacuum in its wake, especially for a team that was used to following orders? Two decades after the disaster, mystery, misperceptions and misrepresentations persist. New, bolder narratives have recently emerged pointing the finger at Krakauer and even Rob Hall. Do these new accusations hold water? Do they expose new and even more troubling questions? What new information is revealed about the client climbers? In NEVEREST II freelance photojournalist and amateur climber Nick van der Leek probes deep inside the Everest '96 canon. The disturbing insights he gleans from research into the psychological fabric of client climbers and their behavior patterns reveals a new controversial context of indiscretions lurking just below the surface of the disaster. In the end the essence of the question NEVEREST II answers is this: what were the Adventure Consultants climbers doing while their teammates were dying only a few meters away? If Lou Kasischke cared so much about the truth [as much as we do] why did he wait 16 years to tell his story? If climbing is answering a call to adventure and embarking on a well worn route to heroism, NEVEREST II demonstrates how climbing Everest is also a highway exposing the charlatan and the coward.

It’s time to set the record straight about Steven Avery. The Netflix series Making a Murderer was a runaway hit, with over 19 million US viewers in the first 35 days. The series left many with the opinion that Steven Avery, a man falsely imprisoned for almost 20 years on a previous, unrelated assault charge, had been framed by a corrupt police force and district attorney’s office for the murder of a young photographer. Viewers were outraged, and hundreds of thousands demanded a pardon for Avery. The chief villain of the series? Ken Kratz, the special prosecutor who headed the investigation and trial. Kratz’s later misdeeds—prescription drug abuse and sexual harassment—only cemented belief in his corruption. This book tells you what Making a Murderer didn’t. While indignation at the injustice of his first imprisonment makes it tempting to believe in his innocence, Avery: The Case Against Steven Avery and What Making a Murderer Gets Wrong and the evidence shared inside—examined thoroughly and dispassionately—prove that, in this case, the criminal justice system worked just as it should. With Avery, Ken Kratz puts doubts about Steven Avery’s guilt to rest. In this exclu- sive insider’s look into the controversial case, Kratz lets the evidence tell the story, sharing details and insights unknown to the public. He reveals the facts Making a Murderer conveniently left out and then candidly addresses the aftermath—openly discussing, for the first time, his own struggle with addiction that led him to lose everything. Avery systematically erases the uncertainties introduced by the Netflix series, confirming, once and for all, that Steven Avery is guilty of the murder of Teresa Halbach.

In this sequel to the bestselling THE CRAVEN SILENCE, true crime maestros van der Leek and Wilson shine a light where none have dared before.

Shocking facts missing from the hit Netflix series Making a Murderer. In 1985, Steven Avery went to prison for the brutal sexual assault of a female jogger on the shores of Lake Michigan. Eighteen years later, DNA evidence proved his innocence. But in 2005 Avery was arrested again—this time for the murder of Teresa Halbach, a young freelance photographer. Proof that Steven Avery was rightfully convicted of murder. Prosecutor Michael Griesbach played a central role in overturning Avery’s initial conviction. But he believes Avery is guilty of Teresa Halbach’s murder. He also believes the producers of Making a Murderer have clouded the truth about the explosive case. With meticulous care, Griesbach reviews the evidence to set the record straight at last. “In searing, bare-bones prose, Griesbach confirms Avery’s guilt. Read this book for clear, concise, unimpeachable evidence that Steven Avery is a monster.” —M. William Phelps “A riveting, powerful take on the story that had all of America talking. Highly recommended.” —Gregg Olsen “A masterpiece of truth-seeking; a page-turning re-examination of the facts; a must-read real-life legal thriller.” —Robert K. Tanenbaum With 16 pages of dramatic photos

Juan Martinez, the fiery prosecutor who convicted notorious murderess Jodi Arias for the disturbing killing of Travis Alexander, speaks for the first time about the shocking investigation and sensational trial that captivated the nation. Through two trials, America watched with baited breath as Juan Martinez fought relentlessly to convict Jodi Arias of Murder One for viciously stabbing her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander to death. What emerged was a story wrought with sex, manipulation, and deceit that stunned the public at every turn. Arias, always playing the wronged and innocent woman, changed her story continually as her bizarre behavior surrounding the crime and its aftermath came to light. Unwavering, Arias and her defense team continued to play off the salacious details of the case, until she was finally found guilty and—controversially—sentenced to life behind bars. Now, speaking openly for the first time, prosecutor Juan Martinez will unearth new details from the investigation that were never revealed at trial, exploring key facts from the case and the pieces of evidence he chose to keep close to the vest. Throughout the trials, his bullish and unfaltering prosecution strategy was both commended and criticized, and in his book, Martinez will illuminate the unique tactics he utilized in this case and how they lead to a successful conviction, and-for the first time-discuss how he felt losing the death penalty sentence he’d pursued for years. Going beyond the news reports, Martinez will explore the truth behind the multiple facades of Jodi Arias. Sparring with her from across the stand, Martinez came to know Arias like no one else could, dissecting what it took for a seemingly normal girl to become a deluded, cunning, and unrepentant murderer. With new stories from behind the scenes of the trial and Martinez’s own take on his defendant, the book takes you inside the mind of Jodi Arias like never before. Complete with 16 pages of photos from the case and trial, this book is the definitive account of the case that shocked America.

Nobody knows who killed JonBen�t Ramsey. Despite the efforts of Colorado's legendary super sleuth Lou Smit, the JonBen�t Ramsey case has - to the present date - defied demystification. Smit, who cracked over 200 cases and had a 90% success record, devoted the last years of his life to finding JonBen�t's killer. Smit died in 2010 having failed to solve this confounding case. 6 years later, despite massive media attention and widespread public scrutiny the most famous of cold cases remains unsolved.Now two rising stars of the true crime genre have put their heads together for their toughest assignment yet. "The caseload involved is colossal. It's overwhelming. At times I've felt like I was drowning; literally dying while I was investigating this case. I haven't felt anything as bad on any other case; that should indicate what we're dealing with here." - Nick van der Leek, PhotojournalistBut The Craven Silence is more than just an investigation into the murder of a beautiful little girl, it's an investigation into the very basements of the human condition. To genuinely probe the cold desecration of our common humanity, the authors move through the veneers of winter and Christmas to deeper and darker places."I can understand how this case obsessed Smit but ultimately it defeated him and just about everyone else. We're trying to avoid getting bogged down or lost inside this twenty year old story; we're trying to find something no one else has and when we do, stay humble." - Lisa Wilson, bestselling author and bloggerIn The Craven Silence the authors have burrowed behind Boulder's chummy bureaucracy in search of not one murderer, but several...
