44 Questions for Black America is a fresh new look at the racial dynamic of the United States. Author Byron F. Wilson addresses Black American issues with unyielding honesty and conviction, and holds both white and Black Americans accountable for Black America's less than desirable condition. His controversial, no holds barred approach examines our world with a fearlessly aggressive mix of research and editorial conclusion. Wilson not only exposes the problems, but also offers realistic solutions, a practice rarely seen in similar literary works. 44 Questions offers Black America a new sense of direction by replacing hope with action.

One of the greatest GAA footballers of the modern era, Paul Galvin has enjoyed a brilliant and at times controversial career. Winning four senior All Ireland medals with Kerry and eight Munster championships, he was also a three-time All Star and 2009 Footballer of the Year. His inter-county career took off in the late 1990s, when he picked up a Munster minor championship medal in 1997 and another at under-21 level in 1999. But it was in the senior team throughout the 2000s that Paul came into his own. In a period defined by great rivalry with Tyrone, he became a key playmaker for Kerry, never failing to give his all in pursuit of victory. Over the course of a career marked by courage, physicality and an intense passion for the Green and Gold, there were many glorious days. There were other days too, with controversial incidents that led to a number of suspensions, most notably in 2008, the year in which Paul also had the honour of being the Kerry captain. 2009 brought redemption. But 2010 presented new challenges. In this fiercely honest autobiography, Paul offers – in his own words – a compelling, unflinching account of a career that has fascinated football fans for over a decade.
