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.

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.
