  • Baking: From My Home to Yours

    Dorie Greenspan has written recipes for the most eminent chefs in the world: Pierre Hermé, Daniel Boulud, and arguably the greatest of them all, Julia Child, who once told Dorie, “You write recipes just the way I do.” Her recipe writing has won widespread praise for its literate curiosity and “patient but exuberant style.” (One hard-boiled critic called it “a joy forever.”) In Baking: From My Home to Yours, her masterwork, Dorie applies the lessons from three decades of experience to her first and real love: home baking. The 300 recipes will seduce a new generation of bakers, whether their favorite kitchen tools are a bowl and a whisk or a stand mixer and a baker’s torch.

    Even the most homey of the recipes are very special. Dorie’s favorite raisin swirl bread. Big spicy muffins from her stint as a baker in a famous New York City restaurant. French chocolate brownies (a Parisian pastry chef begged for the recipe). A dramatic black and white cake for a “wow” occasion. Pierre Hermé’s extraordinary lemon tart.
    The generous helpings of background information, abundant stories, and hundreds of professional hints set Baking apart as a one-of-a-kind cookbook. And as if all of this weren’t more than enough, Dorie has appended a fascinating minibook, A Dessertmaker’s Glossary, with more than 100 entries, from why using one’s fingers is often best, to how to buy the finest butter, to how the bundt pan got its name.

  • The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2006

    In his introduction to The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2006, Brian Greene writes that "science needs to be recognized for what it is: the ultimate in adventure stories."

    The twenty-five pieces in this year's collection take you on just such an adventure. Natalie Angier probes the origins of language, Paul Raffaele describes a remote Amazonian tribe untouched by the modern world, and Frans B. M. de Waal explains what a new breed of economists is learning from monkeys. Drake Bennett profiles the creator of Ecstasy and more than two hundred other psychedelic compounds -- a man hailed by some as one of the twentieth century's most important scientists.

    Some of the selections reflect the news of the past year. Daniel C. Dennett questions the debate over intelligent design -- is evolution just a theory? --while Chris Mooney reports on how this debate almost tore one small town apart. John Hockenberry examines how blogs are transforming the twenty-first-century battlefield, Larry Cahill probes the new science uncovering male and female brain differences, Daniel Roth explains why the programmer who made it easy to pirate movies over the Internet is now being courted by Hollywood, and Charles C. Mann looks at the dark side of increased human life expectancy.

    Reaching out beyond our own planet, Juan Maldacena questions whether we actually live in a three-dimensional world and whether gravity truly exists. Dennis Overbye surveys the continuing scientific mystery of time travel, and Robert Kunzig describes new x-ray images of the heavens, including black holes, exploding stars, colliding galaxies, and other wonders the eye can't see.

  • Kehinde Wiley: The World Stage: India-Sri Lanka

    Kehinde Wiley's acclaimed World Stageseries inserts into the language of old master portraiture the very ethnicities and ethnic iconography that western art has most excluded from it, or that western art has portrayed solely in colonial, Orientalist terms. Among the countries he has previously depicted in this ambitious traveling epic are Brazil, Africa and China. The rhetoric of Wiley's paintings is powerful in its candor, color and its playfulness with constructions of visual meaning, and as Paul Miller (DJ Spooky) also notes, "Wiley's canvas surfaces are a mirror reflection of America's unceasing search for new meanings from the ruins of the Old World of Europe and Africa." This volume includes a selection of new World Stageportraits, focusing on India (specifically the cities of New Delhi and Mumbai) and Sri Lanka. Text in English and Hindi.

  • The Optimistic Child: A Proven Program to Safeguard Children Against Depression and Build Lifelong Resilience

    The epidemic of depression in America strikes 30% of all children. Now Martin E. P. Seligman, the best-selling author of Learned Optimism, and his colleagues offer parents and educators a program clinically proven to cut that risk in half. With this startling new research, parents can teach children to apply optimism skills that can curb depression, boost school performance, and improve physical health. These skills provide children with the resilience they need to approach the teenage years and adulthood with confidence. Over the last thirty years the self-esteem movement has infiltrated American homes and classrooms with the credo that supplying positive feedback, regardless of the quality of performance, will make children feel better about themselves. But in this era of raising our children to feel good, the hard truth is that they have never been more depressed. As Dr. Seligman writes in this provocative new book, "Our children are experiencing pessimism, sadness, and passivity on

  • Doctors and Discoveries: Lives That Created Today's Medicine

    Doctors and Discoveries tells the story of Western medicine through the lives of its most influential figures, chosen for their relevance to contemporary medicine. With eighty-six profiles-from Hippocrates to today's gene hunters-this is the most extensive collection to be published in a single volume in more than fifty years. Famous figures like Louis Pasteur and Claude Bernard are profiled alongside lesser-known but intriguing figures such as patent-medicine pioneer Lydia Pinkham and the founder of chiropractic, D. D. Palmer. Founders, modernizers, and heroes are presented in a spirited and engaging style that makes for engrossing reading or browsing. Doctors and Discoveries is the perfect gift for anyone interested in history, science, or just great storytelling. "For the history of medicine, and much of modern medicine itself, there can be no better introduction than these biographies skillfully woven into our accumulated knowledge. They make for compulsive reading." (Edward O. Wilson, University Professor at Harvard University)

  • The Silmarillion

    The tales of The Silmarillion were the underlying inspiration and source of J.R.R. Tolkien's imaginative writing; he worked on the book throughout his life but never brought it to a final form. Long preceding in its origins The Lord of the Rings, it is the story of the First Age of Tolkien's world, the ancient drama to which characters in The Lord of the RIngs look back and in which some of them, such as Elrond and Galadriel, took part.

    The title Silmarillion is shortened from Quenta Silmarillion, "The History of the Silmarils," the three great jewels created by Feanor, most gifted of the Elves, in which he imprisoned the light of the Two Trees that illumined Valinor, the land of the gods. When Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, destroyed the Trees, that light lived on only in the Silmarils; Morgoth seized them and set them in his crown, guarded in the impenetrable fortress of Angband in the north of Middle-earth. The Silmarillion is the history of the rebellion of Feanor and his people against the gods, their exile in Middle-earth, and their war, hopeless despite all the heroisim of Elves and Men, against the great Enemy.

    The book includes several other, shorter works beside The Silmarillion proper. Preceding it are "Ainulindale," the myth of Creation, and "Valaquenta," in which the nature and powers of each of the gods is set forth. After The Silmarillion is "Akallabeth," the story of the downfall of the great island kingdom of Numenor at the end of the Second Age; completing the volume is "Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age," in which the events of The Lord of the Rings are treated in the manner of The Silmarillion.

    This new edition of The Silmarillion contains the revised and corrected "second edition" text and, by way of introduction, a letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien in 1951, which provides a brilliant exposition of his conception of the earlier Ages. It also contains almost fifty full-color illustrations by the artist Ted Nasmith, many of which appear for the first time.

  • The 42nd Parallel

    With his U.S.A. trilogy, comprising THE 42nd PARALLEL, 1919, and THE BIG MONEY, John Dos Passos is said by many to have written the great American novel. While Fitzgerald and Hemingway were cultivating what Edmund Wilson once called their "own little corners," John Dos Passos was taking on the world. Counted as one of the best novels of the twentieth century by the Modern Library and by some of the finest writers working today, U.S.A. is a grand, kaleidoscopic portrait of a nation, buzzing with history and life on every page.

    The trilogy opens with THE 42nd PARALLEL, where we find a young country at the dawn of the twentieth century. Slowly, in stories artfully spliced together, the lives and fortunes of five characters unfold. Mac, Janey, Eleanor, Ward, and Charley are caught on the storm track of this parallel and blown New Yorkward. As their lives cross and double back again, the likes of Eugene Debs, Thomas Edison, and Andrew Carnegie make cameo appearances.

  • Where Did the Towers Go? Evidence of Directed Free-energy Technology on 9/11

    This book is a forensic analysis of what effectively is a crime scene. Ground Zero and the surrounding areas were photographed countless thousands of times, yet no one really assessed all of the phenomena found in these photographs. What is presented in this book is not a theory and it is not speculation. It is evidence. It is the body of empirical evidence that must be explained in order to determine what happened at Ground Zero. Anyone declaring who did what or how they did it before they have determined what was done is merely promoting either speculation or propaganda. The popular chant, "9/11 was an inside job," is, scientifically speaking, no different from the chant that "19 bad guys with box cutters did it." Neither one is the result of a scientific investigation supported by evidence that would be admissible in court. Neither identifies what crime was committed or how it was committed. The order of crime solving is to determine 1) WHAT happened, then 2) HOW it happened (e.g., what weapon), then 3) WHO did it. And only then can we address 4) WHY they did it (i.e. motive). Let us remember what is required to (legally) convict someone of a crime. You cannot convict someone of a crime based on belief. You cannot convict someone of a crime if you don't even know what crime to charge them with. If you accuse someone of murder using a gun, you'd better be sure the body has a bullet hole in it. Yet, before noon on 9/11/01, we were told who did it, how they did it, and why they did it (they hate us for our freedoms); before any investigation had been conducted to determine what had even been done. Many people have speculated as to who committed the crimes of 9/11 and/or how they did so. But without addressing what happened, speculation of this kind is nothing more than conspiracy theory. My research is not speculation. It is a forensic investigation of what happened to the WTC complex on 9/11.

  • Self-Love Diet:: The Only Diet That Works

    Develop a daily self-love practice, the only diet that works.


    Testimonial by Anita Johnston, PhD

    Rather than promoting the deprivation that is typical of modern day diet mentality, Michelle Minero graciously invites us to imagine how our lives and our world might be different if, instead, we fed ourselves a consistent diet of loving thoughts and kind behaviors. She offers up surprisingly easy-to-follow, practical steps for doing so, skillfully demonstrating how following the path of self-love can lead to freedom from body hatred and eating difficulties. This book is a gift for anyone struggling with eating, weight, and negative body image!

    -Anita Johnston, PhD
    Author, Eating in the Light of the Moon

    Testimonial by Pamela Carlton, MD

    This book is a must read. It is especially helpful for anyone with an eating disorder or chronic dieting and the people who love them. What a wonderful world it would be if women loved and accepted themselves and their bodies unconditionally. Michelle Minero helps the reader along that path. She helps us to see the ways that our society and we ourselves perpetuate self-criticism. She then presents ways in which we can change that critical self-talk into self-love. At the end of each chapter Michelle Minero gives practical action points that help the reader incorporate the key concepts into their life. I will definitely be recommending Self-Love Diet: The Only Diet That Works to my patients and their families.

    When we grow up experiencing indifference, rejection and abuse, we make choices which are addictive and self-destructive.

    -Bernie Siegel, MD
    Author of A Book of Miracles and 101 Exercises For The Soul

    Testimonial by Ovidio Bermudez, MD

    This book presents in a creative and accessible style a basic premise of self-help and wellbeing: self-love. Michelle Minero has been able to encapsulate and present in an easy to understand practice and put into action this difficult to grasp and even more difficult to internalize principle. Self-Love Doet: The Only Diet That Works will help many with eating disorders, and I recommend it to every clinician working with individuals strugging with self-acceptance. Kudos to Michelle for putting forth this valuable tool.

  • The Bonehunters' Revenge: Dinosaurs and Fate in the Gilded Age

    When dinosaur fossils were first discovered in the Wild West, they sparked one of the greatest scientific battles in American history. Over the past century it has been known by many names -- the Bone War, the Fossil Feud -- but the tragic story of the competition for fame and natural treasure between Edward Drinker Cope and Othniel Charles Marsh, two leading paleontologists of the Gilded Age, remains prophetic of the conquest of the West as well as a watershed event in science.
    With a historian's eye and a novelist's skill, David Rains Wallace charts in fascinating detail the unrestrained rivalry between Cope and Marsh and their obsession to become the first to make available to the world the abundant, unknown fossils of the western badlands. This story will surely fascinate anyone who has had to confront the myriad facets of professional jealousy, its sterile brooding, and how it leads to an emotional abyss.

  • They Dance in the Sky: Native American Star Myths

    For countless generations, Native American storytellers have watched the night sky and told tales of the stars and the constellations. The stars themselves tell many tales—of children who have danced away from home, of six brothers who rescue a maiden from the fearful Rolling Skull, of the great wounded sky bear, whose blood turns the autumn leaves red, and many more.

  • The Underachieving Ovary

    Will there be light at the end of the birth canal? Does the word 'endometriosis' make you want to stick a fork in your eye? No? Then perhaps this book isn't for you. It's funny, and (sometimes alarmingly) frank. It contains an impressive array of synonyms for 'vagina' and it's certainly NSFW. It's about having a devil womb and a hot knife lodged in a shoulder. It's about becoming blackly bitter and twisted in infertility, then slowly finding a way to untwist. It's part memoir, part dark comedy, wrapped up loosely as a journal full of TMI and quirk. Put it this way: If Helen Fielding and Marian Keyes were to go through IVF, and use Caitlin Moran as a surrogate, this book would be their baby.

    Stanislavski, Strasberg, Meisner, Adler, Berghoff, Hagen, Mamet . . . now Batson. In TRUTH, the most sought after acting guru in Hollywood and on Broadway distills her half century's experience as an actor, director, teacher, and personal coach into a step by step process for creating a character from first read-through to final performance. Debunking a century's worth of myths about "method acting," Batson identifies the unifying forces of Need, Public Persona, and Tragic Flaw to unite the actor with his or her character. TRUTH shows how actively defining and understanding these three principles leads to the most truthful performances possible.

  • Hashimoto's Thyroiditis: Lifestyle Interventions for Finding and Treating the Root Cause

    What's Really Going on in Hashimoto's? Hashimoto's is more than just hypothyroidism. Most patients with Hashimoto's will present with acid reflux, nutrient deficiencies, anemia, intestinal permeability, food sensitivities, gum disorders and hypoglycemia in addition to the "typical" hypothyroid symptoms such as weight gain, cold intolerance, hair loss, fatigue and constipation. The body becomes stuck in a vicious cycle of immune system overload, adrenal insufficiency, gut dysbiosis, impaired digestion, inflammation, and thyroid hormone release abnormalities. This cycle is self-sustaining and will continue causing more and more symptoms until an external factor intervenes and breaks the cycle apart. The lifestyle interventions discussed in this book aim to dismantle the vicious cycle piece by piece. We start with the simplest modifications, by removing triggers, and follow with repairing the other broken systems to restore equilibrium, allowing the body to rebuild itself.

  • The Tapir's Morning Bath: Solving the Mysteries of the Tropical Rain Forest

    One hundred and fifty years ago, Charles Darwin asked how a rain forest could contain so many species: “What explains the riot?” The same question occupies the scientists who toil on Panama’s Barro Colorado Island today. Tropical and steamy, these six square miles comprise the best-studied rain forest in the world, a locus of scientific activity since 1923.
    In THE TAPIR'S MORNING BATH, Elizabeth Royte weaves together her own adventures on Barro Colorado with tales of researchers struggling to parse the intricate workings of the rain forest, the most complicated natural system on the planet. Through the lens of the field station, she also traces the history of modern biology from its earliest days of collection and classification through the decline of the naturalist to the days of intense niche specialization and rigorous scientific quantification.
    As Royte counts seeds and sorts insects, collects monkey dung and radiotracks bats, she begins to wonder: what is the point of such arcane studies? The world over, rain forests are rapidly disappearing and species are going extinct. While humanizing the scientists in the field, she explores the tension between their research and the reality of a world that may not have time for the answers.

  • A Woman′s Place: An Oral History of Working Class Women 1890-1940

    A Woman?s Place is based upon Elizabeth Roberts?s interviews with 160 elderly people from the towns of Barrow, Lancaster and Preston. They recall their memories of family life as children, youths and adults in the period between the last decade of the nineteenth century and the outbreak of the Second World War.

    A Woman?s Place shows working-class women to be conscious of, and secure in, the separate, private sphere of home and family, with little feeling of male oppression, but more of class oppression and economic injustice to man and woman alike. A woman?s key place within the family as budget manager and domestic decision taker was widely recognized. It was, however, a position won at great cost. The hazards of childbirth, the grueling physical routines of washing, cleaning and cooking, the necessity of undertaking part-time, or (in Preston especially) full-time paid employment to boost the family?s meager income, were the coin with which that role was bought. This hard female experience from childhood to motherhood is carefully and sensitively recorded, and the oral evidence supported and elucidated by documentary material from a wide range of local and national sources.

    Elizabeth Roberts?s classic work in the oral history of the family is now reissued to coincide with the publication of Women and Families to which it is a direct prequel. Taken together the two books provide an unrivaled picture of almost a century of social change.

  • The War of the Ring: The History of The Lord of the Rings, Part Three

    In The War of the Ring Christopher Tolkien takes up the story of the writing of The Lord of the Rings with the Battle of Helm's Deep and the drowning of Isengard by the Ents. This is followed by an account of how Frodo, Sam and Gollum were finally brought to the Pass of Kirith Ungol, at which point J.R.R. Tolkien wrote at the time: 'I have got the hero into such a fix that not even an author will be able to extricate him without labour and difficulty'. Then comes the war in Gondor, and the book ends with the parley between Gandalf and the ambassador of the Dark Lord before the Black Gate of Mordor. In describing his intentions for The Return of the King J.R.R. Tolkien said that 'It will probably work out very differently from this plan when it really gets written, as the thing seems to write itself once it gets going'; and in The War of the Ring totally unforeseen developmenst that would become central to the narrative are seen at the moment of their emergence: the palantir bursting into fragments on the stairs of Orthanc, its nature as unknown to the author as to those who saw it fall, or the entry of Faramir into the story ('I am sure I did not invent him, though I like him, but there he came walking into the woods of Ithilien').

    The book is illustrated with plans and drawings of the changing conceptions of Orthanc, Dunharrow, Minas Tirith and the tunnels of Shelob's Lair.

  • The God Delusion

    A preeminent scientist -- and the world's most prominent atheist -- asserts the irrationality of belief in God and the grievous harm religion has inflicted on society, from the Crusades to 9/11.

    With rigor and wit, Dawkins examines God in all his forms, from the sex-obsessed tyrant of the Old Testament to the more benign (but still illogical) Celestial Watchmaker favored by some Enlightenment thinkers. He eviscerates the major arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of a supreme being. He shows how religion fuels war, foments bigotry, and abuses children, buttressing his points with historical and contemporary evidence. The God Delusion makes a compelling case that belief in God is not just wrong but potentially deadly. It also offers exhilarating insight into the advantages of atheism to the individual and society, not the least of which is a clearer, truer appreciation of the universe's wonders than any faith could ever muster.

On to a real man, please!AWESOME ADVICEThis book sucked me in and made me realize I did everything wrong! Everything! I begged I pleaded, I cried, I texted and texted about how I felt. The whole time he sat back and relaxed and ignored me or gave me a two-word response. Not anymore. After reading this book and looking back, I'm not even sure I want him back in my life now! That is how good this book is. I had standards before him, and now I have standards again! Going to read it over and over to remind myself of who I am and that I deserve someone that wants me, not wants me to belittle myself. Definitely a great read for those sitting and crying!

    What parents are saying

    "I know many people have special relationships with pets and love them as children, but for us, Lucy the dog was more than just a pet. She was a service animal for our daughter, who is eleven and has seizures. Lucy literally saved our child's life. Unfortunately for all of us, we recently had to say goodbye to Lucy. Some people prefer to wait to get a new pet after one dies, but we had to get a new one right away. We've learned that no dog can ever replace Lucy but we have found a different, though just as strong, bond with our new companion, Ricky. This book has helped all of us talk about what we miss about Lucy and remember her together in a really powerful way. Thank you so much for this book."

    "Last year, we adopted a kitten that our ten-year-old son found abandoned. Unfortunately, the kitten was sicker than we knew and we had her for only about seven months. My son fell in love with her quickly and was devastated by her loss. He has been struggling with feeling guilty. He's afraid he didn't take good enough care of her. This memory book has been so beneficial to help him walk through this grief and understand that they had a lot of love to share in a very short time."

    "I am so pleased with how engaged my kid, who's eight, has been with this activity book. We lost a beloved dog who had been with us before my son entered our life. We were having trouble grieving ourselves while helping our son through his sadness. Memories of You has helped us all!"

  • The Chief: The Life of William Randolph Hearst

    David Nasaw's magnificent, definitive biography of William Randolph Hearst is based on newly released private and business papers and interviews. For the first time, documentation of Hearst's interactions with Hitler, Mussolini, Churchill, and every American president from Grover Cleveland to Franklin Roosevelt, as well as with movie giants Louis B. Mayer, Jack Warner, and Irving Thalberg, completes the picture of this colossal American. Hearst, known to his staff as the Chief, was a man of prodigious appetites. By the 1930s, he controlled the largest publishing empire in the country, including twenty-eight newspapers, the Cosmopolitan Picture Studio, radio stations, and thirteen magazines. As the first practitioner of what is now known as synergy, Hearst used his media stronghold to achieve political power unprecedented in the industry. Americans followed his metamorphosis from populist to fierce opponent of Roosevelt and the New Deal, from citizen to congressman, and we are still fascinated today by the man characterized in the film classic CITIZEN KANE. In Nasaw's portrait, questions about Hearst's relationships are addressed, including those about his mistress in his Harvard days, who lived with him for ten years; his legal wife, Millicent, a former showgirl and the mother of his five sons; and Marion Davies, his companion until death. Recently discovered correspondence with the architect of Hearst's world-famous estate, San Simeon, is augmented by taped interviews with the people who worked there and witnessed Hearst's extravagant entertaining, shedding light on the private life of a very public man.

The book ends with a review of future developments in dairy cow husbandry ranging from the use of robotics to allow cows almost complete control of their own environment to the use of intermediate technology to roll back the major constraints on dairy production in the tropics.

  • If It's A Choice, My Zygote Chose Balls: Making Sense of Senseless Controversy

    Jeremy Hooper's Good As You website (www.GoodAsYou.org) is known for blending passion and wit, making the case for LGBT equality worldwide. In If It's a Choice, My Zygote Chose Balls: Making Sense of Senseless Controversy, Jeremy continues that style, blending a unique mix of memoir and social commentary that argues for equal rights based on relatable human principles.

    Hooper leads readers through his own life story, revealing the positive and unnecessarily encumbered aspects of growing up gay in contemporary society. The noted author and activist writes in a sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, but always sharply informed style, opening a window into the realities of family rejection and acceptance. Whether offering direct guidance for would-be straight allies or sharing the inner monologue of a boy who knew who he was long before early adulthood would allow him to own it, Hooper provides a wealth of insight and argument to push the equality conversation forward.

    "From constant talk about marriage to the popular parlor game 'Which celebrity is gay?' our world is, in many ways, obsessed with LGBT topics," says Hooper. "However, there is serious neglect in terms of actually tackling the issues at hand. I want to address the weighty topics head on, but in a relatable way."

    As someone who spends ten to twelve daily hours slogging through the "culture war" for his celebrated website, Jeremy Hooper knows better than anyone how far the LGBT community still has to go in order to obtain full equality. At the same time, his focused lens had led him to believe that some of the usual LGBT activism has isolated the fight and stories, leaving much of the continued struggle to go unrealized by the population at large. So Hooper's answer is to present relatable tales that are just as proactive in changing hearts and minds as any textbook gay rights treatment, but doing so in a package that pops with universal heart and wit. Hooper calls out the B.S. for what it is, while keeping an equal focus on uniting folks from all walks of life for the common causes of peace, equality, acceptance, and, ironically enough-family values. All of this while remembering to keep his tongue in or around the cheek region.

    Written to engage and entertain, as well as inspire further discussion and action, the book is aimed at a wide range of readers interested and open to learning.

  • Chew On This: Everything You Don't Want to Know About Fast Food

    Kids love fast food. And the fast food industry definitely loves kids. It couldn’t survive without them. Did you know that the biggest toy company in the world is McDonald’s? It’s true. In fact, one out of every three toys given to a child in the United States each year is from a fast food restaurant.

    Not only has fast food reached into the toy industry, it’s moving into our schools. One out of every five public schools in the United States now serves brand name fast food. But do kids know what they’re eating? Where do fast food hamburgers come from? And what makes those fries taste so good?

    When Eric Schlosser’s best-selling book, Fast Food Nation, was published for adults in 2001, many called for his groundbreaking insight to be shared with young people. Now Schlosser, along with co-writer Charles Wilson, has investigated the subject further, uncovering new facts children need to know.

    In Chew On This, they share with kids the fascinating and sometimes frightening truth about what lurks between those sesame seed buns, what a chicken ‘nugget’ really is, and how the fast food industry has been feeding off children for generations.

    Featuring cover art by M. Wartella.

  • Veterinary Parasitology

    This book is intended for veterinary students studying parasitology, practising veterinary surgeons, and those in animal science who require information on all aspects of parasitic disease in domestic animals.

    The text is comprehensive, covering both temperate and tropical zones, and deals with all three aspects of parasitology - helminthology, entomology and protozoology - as well as some blood-borne rickettsial infections traditionally taught in the subject. There are also chapters dedicated to reviews of epidemiology, immunity, anthelmintics, ectoparasiticides and laboratory diagnosis.

    Because the text is intended for those directly involved in the diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitic infections of domestic animals, diseases which are common or important are treated in some detail, the less important being discussed more briefly. For the same reason, details of classification and taxonomy have been kept to the minimum necessary to indicate the relationships between the various species and to facilitate their identification.

  • Unweaving the Rainbow: Science, Delusion and the Appetite for Wonder

    Did Newton "unweave the rainbow" by reducing it to its prismatic colors, as Keats contended? Did he, in other words, diminish beauty? Far from it, says acclaimed scientist Richard Dawkins; Newton's unweaving is the key to much of modern astronomy and to the breathtaking poetry of modern cosmology. Mysteries don't lose their poetry because they are solved: the solution often is more beautiful than the puzzle, uncovering deeper mysteries. With the wit, insight, and spellbinding prose that have made him a best-selling author, Dawkins takes up the most important and compelling topics in modern science, from astronomy and genetics to language and virtual reality, combining them in a landmark statement of the human appetite for wonder.
    This is the book Richard Dawkins was meant to write: a brilliant assessment of what science is (and isn't), a tribute to science not because it is useful but because it is uplifting.

  • The Tiddler Invasion: Small Motorcycles of the Sixties

    This is the book collectors, restorers, and nostalgic fans of the machines of our youth have been waiting to arrive! After years of extensive research through archives of motorcycle magazines, books, and brochures from the classic era, the founder of the seminal Tiddlerosis website has published his magnum opus on the subject. The Tiddler Invasion covers many miles of two-wheeled motorized nostalgia. Thousands of facts, figures, colors, specifications, and even original prices are packed into more than 600 detailed pages. The story of the invasion of the USA by small motorcycles and scooters in the 1955-1975 era is told with enthusiasm for these many wondrous little machines by someone who lived through that special time in our nation's history. The book includes approximately 180 charts of the popular models sold in the U.S. during the period and well over 400 B&W photos. The author and two major collectors of these special little bikes share nostalgic personal remembrances of a wondrous time past. The focus of The Tiddler Invasion is on the most common machines of the period, mostly from Japan. Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, and Suzuki each have a detailed chapter. Bridgestone, Hodaka, Tohatsu, and other early brands share a chapter. The story basically begins with the arrival of the Honda 50 in 1959 and ends with the release of the Gold Wing in 1975. The tiddler era rose to prominence in the Sixties and began its slow descent into obscurity as the Kawasaki Mach III, the Honda 750 Four, and the Kawasaki Z-1 took over the U.S. motorcycle market. The major brands from the USA are detailed in a chapter, too. This group is of course dominated by Harley-Davidson, Allstate, and Cushman, just as it was back then. There are no H-D Big Twins here, but plenty of Hummers, Toppers, Super Eagles, Mopeds and Twingles! There were countless European brands and models imported in the Sixties, but only those of significance are included. As we all know, most of the European models were either large road burners, obscure small Italian bikes and scooters, or off-road competition machines. You will not find Nortons, Guzzis, Maicos or Parillas here, but the European chapter is quite sizable nonetheless. The most difficult element to communicate to a prospective reader is the definition of the machines and parameters included in this book. The concept of The Tiddler Invasion is unique to the time and place. Although the 50cc machines began Americans' rush to motorcycle dealerships, the market rapidly expanded from that point. The smallest machines covered in the book are the true tiddlers, but these little putt-putts for kids comprised only the tip of the iceberg. Many classic 250cc sports machines such as the Ducati Diana, Harley-Davidson Sprint H, Honda Hawk, Yamaha YDS-2, Suzuki X-6, and Bultaco Metralla roar through the pages of this book! The Kawasaki Triples scream through it so much you will choke on the two-stroke smoke! The author has a thing for the Honda Scramblers, as if they were dark-haired beauties in bikinis or something. The kings of upswept exhaust pipes and crossbrace handlebars get their own chapter. Once you have possession of this book, you will never want to give it up. The Tidder Invasion is not a coffee table book of pretty color pictures. It is a reference guide crammed to the Snuff-or-Nots with useful info for collectors and enthusiasts of small classic motorcycles. The author began collecting motorcycle brochures and magazines in 1962. Reproductions of and detailed information from these sources are included in this extensive reference guide. The author of this book is not a collector, a photographer, or a restorer. He is a super-nerd who clearly loves these classic machines. The earliest part of this book was written in 1985 on a 1959 IBM typewriter. Now with the help of modern computers, the whole, wonderful, magical story of that very special era in American history can finally be told!

These articles suggest additional exercises and methods of healing the wounds while working towards better relationships, peace and contentment.- "Joe Soll has probably worked with adoptees and first parents more than anyone else on the planet. His approach has always involved empathy, intuition and introspection, without which dialogue runs dry. Few know the depth of the adoptee and first parent experience as well as Joe Soll, especially the dark side, where loss and loneliness reside.

  • Physiological and Clinical Anatomy of the Domestic Mammals: Central Nervous System

    To the beginner, the brain and spinal cord all too often appear discouragingly complex in form and function. This book is intended for those who have virtually no knowledge of the central nervous system but wish to comprehend quickly and relatively painlessly the most essential principles of how it is constructed and the way it works. The book has been written primarily for undergraduate students of the biomedical sciences and for veterinary students in particular.

The discussions are based on a generalized mammal, with occasional specific details of man and domestic animals. The core material exploits every possible way of saving time and labour in grasping the basic aspects of structure and function. More advanced passages are relevant to research students, or to clinicians especially those in veterinary practice.

  • Four Steps to Funding: Avoid Rejection and Get Your Grant Funded on the Next Try with This Simple Four Step Formula

    What goes on inside your grant reviewer's head? Understanding this is the key to avoiding rejection and getting your next grant funded. You may wonder...What is my reviewer really looking for? Did they reject my grant just because of politics? Why did one reviewer love my grant and another one hate it? How can I revise my grant to make it more fund-able? The answers lie within a four step process reviewers go through when they read your grant proposal - a process most reviewers aren't even aware they're doing. If you gloss over one of these steps - or worse, leave it out all together - your grant will be rejected, and you may get cryptic reviews back that don't explain why it was rejected or help you avoid another rejection. Four Steps to Funding gives you the simple process that will clarify your thinking, organize your proposal, and address reviewer objections before you submit your grant. Going far beyond the typical "word-smithing" and fill-in-the-blank examples of other grant writing books, 4 steps to funding gets into the mind of your reviewer and provides techniques for persuading him/her of the value of your work, your own credibility, and your approach. Written in an easy to read, engaging style, the concepts in this book are critical, for writing NIH or NSF grants. However, the concepts are easily applicable to Foundation, SBIR, or even business or non-profit proposals. It is your turn to crack the code, by learning the four steps that your next grant proposal must have in order to succeed. Your proposal will go beyond providing the facts and will get your reviewer excited about your work, and ready to fund it!

  • Size Matters: How Height Affects the Health, Happiness, and Success of Boys - and the Men They Become

    An award-winning journalist tackles the hot topic of male body image and shows how physical size during childhood affects our psychology, social status, relationships, and income as adults.
    With a mix of fresh research, incisive reportage, and bracing candor, Size Matters traces the surprising history of society’s bias against shortness and reveals how short people can and do thrive in spite of this insidious bigotry. Drawing on his own childhood experiences (he was shorter than 99 percent of boys his age), Stephen Hall explains the evolution of the growth chart, the biology of childhood aggression, and the wrenching phenomenon of bullying. He explores the factors that determine why one child’s small stature may lead to anguish while another short child develops an emotional resilience that will enrich his later life. Weaving together recent findings from the fields of animal behavior, psychology, and evolutionary biology, Hall assesses the role of physical size in mating success and argues that the alpha male may not be king of the mountain after all.
    Hall also pinpoints the social forces that create and cash in on our anxieties about size, from bulked-up superhero action figures to pharmaceutical companies selling growth hormone to increase a child’s height -- at a cost of up to $40,000 a year. He introduces us to families who have agonized over whether to make that huge investment. He explains new research showing that a person’s height as a teenager has lifelong psychological consequences. He even tracks down kids he bullied in elementary school and kids who bullied him in high school to show that these childhood encounters have lasting effects on our adult lives. Along the way, Hall builds a persuasive case against societal attitudes that make size (or any difference) matter and argues forcefully that being short has psychological, social, and biological advantages. Size Matters will raise the consciousness -- and the spirits -- of any short male and anyone who cares about him.

  • The Girl Pretending To Read Rilke

    The Girl Pretending to Read Rilke is a coming-of-age novel set in a biology lab in the summer of 1963 in Boston. Both the heroine, 19-year-old Bronwen, and America are suffering growing pains and soon all the standards of the past will be shattered as the Pill and the war in Vietnam change people's expectations forever. A shocking telegram forces Bronwen to choose between family and the temptations of a dazzling future in science. "Barbara Riddle has given us a sharp, funny glimpse into a little-explored moment in women's recent history. The year is 1963, the same year Betty Friedan published The Feminine Mystique. Brave young women were heading out from college and looking for lives very different from those their mothers had lived. My excitement about The Girl Pretending to Read Rilke stems in part from the fact that I was there- heading for graduate school in science in 1963. I recognize Riddle's heroine Bronwen for her spirit of adventure as well as her sometimes crippling self-doubts (carefully nourished by the all-too-realistic boyfriend-from-hell). Today's 20-somethings will recognize her as a woman struggling, like themselves, for personal coherence in a world that still has difficulty seeing us as complete and entire human beings." -Barbara Ehrenreich (author, Nickel and Dimed)

  • Ending the Food Fight: Guide Your Child to a Healthy Weight in a Fast Food/Fake Food World

His groundbreaking research is the basis for some of the most successful diets of the last decade, including the South Beach Diet and SugarBusters.

Dr. Ludwig wins parents' trust but also offers hope to their children, who often feel teased, bullied, and defeated.

    In Ending the Food Fight, Dr. Ludwig shares his program with parents everywhere, giving them all the tools they need to help their children win the food fight, once and for all.

  • Jordan's Point, Virginia: Archaeology in Perspective, Prehistoric to Modern Times

    Jordan's Point, a nearly triangular promontory in the James River, is situated in Prince George County, just east of the confluence of the James and Appomattox Rivers. A broad terrace overlooking the James, Jordan's Point is bounded by small streams, tidal marshes, and protective uplands that rise to a height of 100 feet or more. In 1607, when the first European colonists saw Jordan's Point, it was graced by the homes and cleared fields of natives they would call the Weyanoke. Virginia colonist Samuel Jordan established a community called Jordan's Journey around 1621, giving his name to what became known as Jordan's Point.

    In time, the settlement became a hub of social and political life. By 1660, Jordan's Point had come into the possession of the Blands, one of England's most important mercantile families. They leased their property to one or more of their agents, usually merchants and mariners involved in inter-colonial trade. Richard Bland I and his descendants developed Jordan's Point into a family seat and working plantation they retained until after the Civil War. At Jordan's Point enslaved men, women, and children toiled in the fields, enabling the Blands to prosper. Richard Bland IV went on to become a distinguished American patriot, and one of his sons became a physician.

    Featuring more than one hundred photos and illustrations, most in color, and intended for a general reader, Jordan's Point, Virginia: Archaeology in Perspective, Prehistoric to Modern Times tells the story of Jordan's Point, which spans thousands of years, through the cultural features that archaeologists have unearthed there. This is a book that will attract readers interested in Native American studies, Virginia and colonial history, and archaeology.

  • The Secrets of Baking: Simple Techniques for Sophisticated Desserts

    The Secrets of Baking is a comprehensive primer that guides the cook through the world of baked goods and other desserts, from time-honored classics of the French patisserie to the inspired and fanciful creations that made Spago the famous restaurant it is today. At the same time, it advances a radically new understanding of these recipes, one that will give the baker greater flexibility and confidence in the kitchen.
    Instead of grouping desserts into traditional categories (pies, cakes, cookies), Sherry Yard arranges them around crucial master recipes. Starting with these recipes -- simple, basic guidelines for making caramel, chocolate sauce, lemon curd, pound cake, and brioche, to name just a few -- Yard shows the cook how to create dozens of variations. Knowing how ingredients interact opens the door to a multitude of baking possibilities. For example, cream puff dough forms the foundation for éclairs, profiteroles, and the caramel-coated tower the French call croquembouche, but understanding how and why it behaves the way it does allows the cook to create deep-fried beignets, mascarpone-filled cannolis, or simmering-hot dumplings.
    This authoritative, friendly bake-shop bible contains fascinating mini-lessons on food science, illuminating bits of baking history, and time-saving tips. Newcomers to the world of baking will feel at ease with such simple, homey desserts as Banana Bread and Mississippi Mud Pie, and elaborate show-stoppers like Chocolate Brioche Sandwich with Espresso Gelato and Blackberry-Lime-Filled Doughnuts with Blackberry Sorbet and Berries will transform amateur bakers into expert pastry chefs.

  • The Secret Addiction: Overcoming Your Marijuana Dependency

    After almost a decade of living a life behind a veil of smoke and many failed attempts at quitting, Tony DeRamus began his journey of discovering the answers to abstaining from what most people consider to be a harmless drug, a non-addictive drug. For many of those who are trapped in this cloud of smoke, know this is far from the truth. Sadly, many of those individuals simply do not know how to find their way out. Although The Secret Addiction began as a personal quest, Dr. DeRamus quickly realized that there was very limited information specifically for marijuana addicts. Yes, the topic of addiction is extremely popular, but marijuana addicts consider themselves different and many times can't relate to a program focused mainly on alcohol or cocaine. The Secret Addiction will help guide those who are looking for the answers to escaping their dependency on marijuana whether it has been two years or twenty years. Compiled with the latest research, questionnaires, motivational and behavioral strategies, The Secret Addiction has been written exclusively for the marijuana user.

  • Patterns of Culture

    "Unique and important . . . Patterns of Culture is a signpost on the road to a freer and more tolerant life." -- New York Times

    A remarkable introduction to cultural studies, Patterns of Culture is an eloquent declaration of the role of culture in shaping human life. In this fascinating work, the renowned anthropologist Ruth Benedict compares three societies -- the Zuni of the southwestern United States, the Kwakiutl of western Canada, and the Dobuans of Melanesia -- and demonstrates the diversity of behaviors in them. Benedict's groundbreaking study shows that a unique configuration of traits defines each human culture and she examines the relationship between culture and the individual. Featuring prefatory remarks by Franz Boas, Margaret Mead, and Louise Lamphere, this provocative work ultimately explores what it means to be human.

    "That today the modern world is on such easy terms with the concept of culture . . . is in very great part due to this book." -- Margaret Mead

    "Benedict's Patterns of Culture is a foundational text in teaching us the value of diversity. Her hope for the future still has resonance in the twenty-first century: that recognition of cultural relativity will create an appreciation for 'the coexisting and equally valid patterns of life which mankind has created for itself from the raw materials of existence.'" -- from the new foreword by Louise Lamphere, past president of the American Anthrolopological Association

    Ruth Benedict (1887-1948) was one of the most eminent anthropologists of the twentieth century. Her profoundly influential books Patterns of Culture and The Chrysanthemum and the Sword: Patterns of Japanese Culture were bestsellers when they were first published, and they have remained indispensable works for the study of culture in the many decades since.

  • Scaredies Away! A Kid's Guide to Overcoming Worry and Anxiety (made simple)

    ''This wonderful book is a must for all parents to help their children to normalize the symptoms of anxiety. What a gift to give to our children." Dr. Harry Barry (MD, author and mental health advocate) "Scaredies Away: A Kid's Guide to Overcoming Worry & Anxiety (made simple)" is a breath of fresh air and a sigh of relief for confused parents who are overwhelmed by the complicated books out there that are dull, boring and very confusing. This engaging & interactive self-help book will finally provide you and your child the relief you have been looking for. The ONE technique (instead of 20 outdated techniques!) found only in Scaredies Away is a cognitive-behavioral technique most often used to treat anxiety. Scaredies Away truly has it all--a fun-filled fiction story with brilliant colorfull illustrations to keep your child engaged- not bored, a phenomenal parent information and guidance section which is an integral part of the book, a colorful and fun goal sheet and a FREE code to download the book on audio for a soothing evening listen or read along! The reviews are in. KIDS and PARENTS LOVE this book! Scaredies Away is written by a Nationally Certified School Psychologist and world renowned anxiety expert who speaks globally on anxiety. Why haven't you heard of this book? It's simple--because Scaredies Away is a self-published book and does not have the advertising budget that the big publishers have. The authors insisted on delivering Scaredies Away in a fun and entertaining way so that your kids would actually want to read the book thereby getting the help they need. The publishers would not publish this book as fiction/self-help book. They wanted another dry and boring self-help book. But as a previous teacher, therapist, and school psychologist this author and mother of two knew better. She knew kids learned better when they were entertained, when the content was put in simple terms and when the material was developmentally appropriate. The first week of launch Scaredies Away hit the #1 spot in its category on Amazon and has since received numerous five star reviews. Those dry how-to manuals are a dime a dozen. That's what is different about this book--the kids LOVE it. Scaredies Away is such a very special and uniquely crafted book. It has become many children's favorite bedtime book even when they are not anxious. While it was important for the authors to make sure your kids would be entertained -as parents too-they knew their primary goal was to help you help your child find comfort, hope and the freedom to just be a kid again. They know you just want your child to be OK again. They get it. They've been there too. This book was crafted with you and your child in mind- not the criteria of the big publishers. Synopsis: Eight-year-old Jack is scared...of the dark...of swimming in the ocean...and of riding the biggest roller coaster on the boardwalk. Jack usually runs away from what scares him. Most people do! But now that his cousin Clay has taught him how to overcome his fears all on his own, Jack is ready to take on the world! And with the Magic Finger Countdown, you will be too! Scaredies Away demonstrates a simple and effective technique called the Magic Finger Countdown which is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. The technique is used for conquering fear in almost any situation--from staying in a big kid bed at night, to imaginary monsters in the closet, to talking in front of a group. Children do not have to live with debilitating fear and anxiety. Behavior can be changed, and anxiety can be transformed into a sense of personal power. Read this book with your children or students, explore the Afterword for tips on implementing the technique, and encourage children to try the Magic Finger Countdown in any situation where they feel afraid. Give your child the comfort and the freedom to just be a kid again. Cataloging data available

  • The Pursuit of Perfection: And How It Harms Writers

    In this WMG Writer's Guide, international bestselling author Kristine Kathryn Rusch discusses the destructive ways peer workshops and the quest for perfection derail many writers' careers.

But Rusch offers hope for writers who have suffered at the hands of critique--external and internal--and outlines a path to healing.

  • Confessions of a Band Geek Mom: One Exhausted Parent's Take on Carpools, Room Mothers, High School Band, and Hernias

    Stand-up comic and writer/filmmaker Stacy Dymalski learned about parenting the hard way; she became one. After 36 years of childless living spoiled her into believing happy hour was just a normal part of one's daily commute, she moved to Utah (to ski everyday, of course) and within a year got pregnant. (Isn't that what happens to any woman who moves to Utah?) Before she knew it she had two young sons and suddenly sleep won out over midnight comedy shows. Juicy Juice replaced Gray Goose vodka (although they are good mixed). Prada bags gave way to diaper bags. Showers couldn't last longer than a "Bob the Builder" video. Vacations took a back seat to music lessons, and band instruments littered the house like empty beer bottles in a college dorm. And for the first 10 years of her sons' lives she felt compelled to clean up her language (sort of). In between carpools and doing crazy stuff like lobbying for sex education in schools (so our kids don't grow up thinking the missionary position involves a bicycle and a doorbell) Stacy has documented her parenting journey in this delightful collection of laugh-out-loud stories that her children are sure to contest once they're old enough to understand the art of irony and exaggeration.

  • Hurricane: The Miraculous Journey of Rubin Carter

    In 1967, the black boxer Rubin "Hurricane" Carter and a young acquaintance, John Artis, were wrongly convicted of triple murder by an all-white jury in Paterson, New Jersey. Over the next decade, Carter gradually amassed convincing evidence of his innocence and the vocal support of celebrities from Bob Dylan to Muhammad Ali. He was freed in 1976 pending a new trial, but he lost his appeal -- to the amazement of many -- and landed back in prison.
    Carter, bereft, shunned almost all human contact until he received a letter from Lesra Martin, a teenager raised in a Brooklyn ghetto. Against his bitter instincts, Carter agreed to meet with Martin, thus taking the first step on a tortuous path back to the world. Martin introduced him to an enigmatic group of Canadians who helped wage a successful battle to free him. As Carter orchestrated this effort from his cell, he also embarked on a singular intellectual journey, which led ultimately to a freedom more profound than any that could be granted by a legal authority.

  • Being Sober and Becoming Happy: The Best Ideas from The Director of Spiritual Guidance at Hazelden

    In this hopeful and useful guide, Dr. John MacDougall explains how to maintain our spiritual condition so that we can remain reliably sober, and come to restore our relationships with God, ourselves, and those we love. By practicing the spiritual principles of the Twelve Step programs, and making a daily commitment to our program of recovery, we reliably become happy. Contents Introduction Chapter 1: Staying Sober Chapter 2: Spirituality and Recovery Chapter 3: Surrender and Trust Chapter 4: Practice What Principles Chapter 5: Spiritual Recovery from Trauma and Abuse Chapter 6: Love and Romance Chapter 7: Hope Chapter 8: Finding Joy in Life Chapter 9: Becoming Happy Advance reviews for Being Sober and Becoming Happy: THIS BOOK IS WRITTEN BY A BRILLIANT MIND WITH A GIFT FOR HUMOR, CLARITY, ORIGINALITY, AND MOST IMPORTANT -SIMPLICITY. IN MY OPINION, NO BETTER BOOK HAS BEEN WRITTEN ON RELAPSE PREVENTION AND THE 12 STEPS SINCE THE BIG BOOK. THE AUTHOR HAS SPENT 30 YEARS IN AL-ANON, NA AND AA AND KNOWS WHAT HELPS - AND WHAT DOESN'T - BACKWARDS AND FORWARDS. OF EQUAL IMPORTANCE, THIS IS A BOOK ABOUT POSITIVE TRANSFORMATION FOR US ALL, ESPECIALLY THOSE IN RECOVERY FROM ANY SORT OF SUFFERING. George E, Vaillant MD Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School Author of Spiritual Evolution "As we realize we have a God, rather than we are gods, we get to stop trying to control life, and we get to simply live life instead. I've decided that my life is unmanageable only when I am trying to manage it. My life isn't meant to be managed, it is meant to be lived." This quote is one of the hundreds of pithy ideas from John MacDougall's new book, the book you are soon to be engrossed in. His insights, and they materialize with ease on every page, are amazing and I've loved hearing him share them in meetings and on the "circuit" for years. But having all that wisdom, told with humor at times, but with clarity always, in one place is what makes this book invaluable. John simply gets to the core of any issue with such ease, and he makes himself understood with little work on the reader's part. He writes, or speaks, and we listen and learn with our hearts and minds. John MacDougall has been instrumental in the lives of so many people, those in the fellowship and those who have simply been lucky enough to share a few moments of his time while passing through some stage of life. He doesn't reserve his gift of understanding how life works, life without alcohol or pills but always with a God of one's understanding, for any one group of people. John is simply "the whole package," wherever you meet him; on the pages of a book or in a meeting or an auditorium. You get him whole, unfiltered and erupting always with knowledge, wisdom, humor and a loving heart. Every time you are in his presence, you come away knowing more about the 12 Steps and how to live them, and with the backdrop of humor that helps to make the information even more significant. I love this book! Even after 37 years in Alcoholics Anonymous and a few more than that in Al-Anon, I found myself jotting down insights for my own edification, and to share with others. That's what spending any time with John is like. We are never too old to take on a new idea, one that not only benefits us but every single person who is crossing our path quite by divine appointment, today or any tomorrow. John has gotten better with age, with his commitment to the work of helping others, and his passion for passing on that which he has learned. Every one who chooses to gather even an inkling of the wisdom in these pages will bring benefit to the world we all share. Thank you, John. Thank you for helping every one of us make a difference in this life through the application of the principles you so completely embody. Karen Casey, Ph.D., author of Each Day A New Beginning.

  • Comprehensive Anger Management: Step By Step Guide To Transforming Your Anger

    Anger is one of the most difficult emotions to manage. Once we are angry it can feel almost impossible to step back from the strength of our rage and the resulting loss of control.

    Managing anger is also difficult because often there seems to be no rhyme or reason why it rises up. Sometimes it is triggered by something big and at other times it is set off by the smallest thing.

    Uncontrolled anger hurts our relationships and our work lives, eating us from the inside out.

    But it doesn't have to be this way.

    Comprehensive Anger Management will teach you why you experience anger, what preventative steps you can take before you enter situations that arouse your anger, and what to do once you start to feel anger rising inside you.

    Comprehensive Anger Management is written in a simple step-by-step format. If you follow the steps and work through the tools in this book you will regain control over your anger, and all your emotions.

  • Carry On, Mr. Bowditch

    Readers today are still fascinated by “Nat,” an eighteenth-century nautical wonder and mathematical wizard. Nathaniel Bowditch grew up in a sailor’s world—Salem in the early days, when tall-masted ships from foreign ports crowded the wharves. But Nat didn’t promise to have the makings of a sailor; he was too physically small. Nat may have been slight of build, but no one guessed that he had the persistence and determination to master sea navigation in the days when men sailed only by “log, lead, and lookout.” Nat’s long hours of study and observation, collected in his famous work, The American Practical Navigator (also known as the “Sailors’ Bible”), stunned the sailing community and made him a New England hero.

  • Play It Away: A Workaholic's Cure for Anxiety

    ACTUAL READER FEEDBACK

    "This book saved my life. Every tip is natural, just the way I want to treat my anxiety."

    "Play It Away really hits on what 'living in the moment' is all about. Reading this book has been one of the most valuable investments I've made, both professionally and personally."

    "I work in the mental health field, so I have read my weight in self-help books. I would highly recommend this to anyone wrestling with anxiety. Or really, just anyone."

    "When reading Play It Away, I felt as though I was talking with a friend over a beer, rather than reading a book pointing out what I was doing wrong. Charlie relates to the reader in an extraordinary way and offers tangible advice that doesn't seem out of reach. This is certainly a different kind of self-help book that I will keep on my bookshelf for years to come."

    "Living on the road for the better part of 7 years representing and speaking for Tony Robbins landed me in the hospital: adrenals burnt out, depressed, poor digestion, and miserable. It was pretty hard to be a 'motivational speaker' when I was actually dying on the inside. Charlie's book serves as a great reminder to enjoy life more, and also provides the necessary "how to" information and practical advice to enjoy life and be more productive. Highly recommend this book to anyone who is busy and wants to enjoy their life more."

    "It might be because I see so much of myself in the author's story, but this book has already changed my life. It reminded me of all of the things that I used to fill my free time with that I completely abandoned, and it gave me concrete, actionable ways to re-integrate them into my life. I've already recommended this book to over a dozen good friends. It's a very solid read."

    "I've been feeling 98% back to my former self 98% of the time. Sometimes I have a hard time believing the five months that I was crippled with anxiety even happened. My confidence is back and I'm having fun again."

    "After reading your book, everything clicked for me. There are so many parts in it that I can relate to; the anxious feeling from coffee, lack of sleep, too much time spent on my laptop/iPhone, and so many other things. I can't explain how nice it was to know that someone finally understood AND has solutions to change those feelings. The answers I've been searching for and asking doctors about for almost the last 3 years, you were able to summarize in one book."

    "Play It Away is a gift. It's totally changed how I think about my interactions with friends, women, and people I meet for the first time. I'm more open, playful, and happier overall since reading (and applying) this book."

    "This book provides simple but profound advice on how to gift yourself with a stress-free, happier existence."

    "What a truly inspiring and incredible read for anyone struggling with anxiety or depression. The author's style is so full of energy and bubbly, it made me want to go out and take my own adventure."

    "Here's the cure to your stress!"
    --Tony Robbins, #1 Bestselling Author of Personal Power, 40 million copies sold

    "For all Type-A driven readers -- especially those who struggle with the shut-off switch -- this one is for you."
    --Tim Ferriss, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of The 4-Hour Workweek and The 4-Hour Body

    "Charlie's transformation through the rediscovery of his own innate play nature stands as an example available to all of us. Access your own unique play capacities and infuse them into your life! It works!"
    --Stuart Brown, M.D., Bestselling Author of Play

  • The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2007

    "Science is about not knowing and wanting badly to know. Science is about flawed and complicated human beings trying to use whatever tools they've got, along with their minds, to see something strange and new. In that sense, writing about science is just another way of writing about the human condition." -- from the introduction by Richard Preston

    The twenty-eight pieces in The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2007 span a wide range of topics, from the farthest reaches of space to the everyday world around us to the secrets hiddin in our own bodies. Michael Lemonick travels to an extinct volcano in Hawaii, where telescopes at the summit are providing researchers with a glimpse of the most distant galaxy ever seen -- and profound new insights into the creation of the universe. Neil deGrasse Tyson takes a sharp, witty look at Americans' delirium over space travel. And with surgical precision Michael Perry describes how a medical autopsy is performed. Dead men can tell tales.

    Here we also see examinations of the sometimes harmful impact of science on the natural world. Susan Casey gives an alarming portrait of plastic waste pollution in the world's oceans, including a dead zone in the mid-Pacific that's twice the size of Texas. Michael Shnayerson heads to West Virginia, where the Appalachians are being blasted at the rate of several ridgetops a week, all in the pursuit of ever-elusive coal. And Paul Bennett goes deep beneath Rome's streets, where cutting-edge excavation techniques are revealing newfound treasures in one of the world's oldest cities.

    A profile of a late, distinguished British ornithologist by John Seabrook reveals that the man's personal collection of bird skins, now in the British Natural History Museum, was largely stolen or bought and intentionally mislabeled. Richard Conniff visits a former Brooklyn social worker turned primatologist who has become a fierce advocate of the lemur. And Patricia Gadsby takes us into the kitchens of Europe's finest chefs to explain how the new field of molecular gastronomy is revolutionizing fine cuisine.

  • Sedimentology and Stratigraphy

    Sedimentology and Stratigraphy is the first introductory text to relate sedimentological units to the larger stratigraphic picture. Representing current research priorities, it leaves behind an older--and now outdated--generation of textbooks. The author?s aim is to consider the earth in terms of its physical environments, to describe the processes that affect generation, transport and deposition of sediment, and to build up a picture of the stratigraphy generated by these processes. The initial treatment is geomorphological and the general approach is non-mathematical. This will become the introductory textbook of choice in sedimentology and stratigraphy. The first introductory text to relate the units of sedimentology to the larger, stratigraphic picture. Eclipses an older generation of textbooks written before sequence stratrigraphy gave rise to a renaissance in stratigraphy. Covers the full range of sedimentology, from sub-microscopic analysis of grains of sand to the palaeogeographic evolution of whole basins. Largely a non-mathematical approach, within the grasp of students starting a degree course. Explains clearly the technical terms of soft-rock geology.

  • The God Particle: If the Universe Is the Answer, What Is the Question?

    A fascinating tour of particle physics from Nobel Prize winner Leon Lederman.

     

    At the root of particle physics is an invincible sense of curiosity. Leon Lederman embraces this spirit of inquiry as he moves from the Greeks' earliest scientific observations to Einstein and beyond to chart this unique arm of scientific study. His survey concludes with the Higgs boson, nicknamed the God Particle, which scientists hypothesize will help unlock the last secrets of the subatomic universe, quarks and all—it's the dogged pursuit of this almost mystical entity that inspires Lederman's witty and accessible history.

  • Through a Window

    THROUGH A WINDOW is the dramatic saga of thirty years in the life of a community, of birth and death, sex and love, power and war. It reads like a novel, but it is one of the most important scientific works ever published. The community is Gombe, on the shores of Lake Tangganyika, where the principal residents are chimpanzees and one extraordinary woman who is their student, protector, and historian. In her classic In the Shadow of Man, Jane Goodall wrote of her first ten years at Gombe. In Through a Window she brings the story up to the present, painting a much more complete and vivid portrait of our closest relative. We see the community split in two and a brutal war break out. We watch young Figan's relentless rise to power and old Mike's crushing defeat. We learn how one mother rears her children to succeed and another dooms them to failure. We witness horrifying murders, touching moments of affection, joyous births, and wrenching deaths. In short, we see every emotion known to humans stripped to its essence. In the mirror of chimpanzee life, we see ourselves reflected. Perhaps the best book ever written about animal behavior, Through a Window is also essential reading for anyone seeking a better grasp of human behavior.

    Broken Patterns, by award-winning journalist Anita M. Harris, places modern American professional women --and their mothers and grandmothers--in remarkable historical context. Based on interviews with women who entered male-dominated careers in the 1970s and 1980s, the book outlines a "push-pull" pattern of generational and historical development going back to the Colonial period in America. Broken Patterns will be of special interest to women at all career stages because it shows how the experiences of mothers and grandmothers influence career decisions and lives. And it traces the impact of rapid technological and social change on family structures, psyches, and gender roles. Unlike several new books arguing that women's quest for equality has stalled, Broken Patterns takes a hopeful view. It suggests that progress is not linear, nor cyclic, but spiral. "As individuals, as generations and as a society," Harris writes, "we push forward toward a goal, reach an impasse, pull back to retrieve and reintegrate aspects and values of the past in order to move forward, once again." The new edition includes stories of present day college students and recent graduates, a new preface and an afterword assessing how far women have come since Broken Patterns was originally published, in 1995. NPR Reporter and author Margot Adler calls the book "A splendid study of professional women."

  • Beethoven: Anguish and Triumph

    Jan Swafford’s biographies of Charles Ives and Johannes Brahms have established him as a revered music historian, capable of bringing his subjects vibrantly to life. His magnificent new biography of Ludwig van Beethoven peels away layers of legend to get to the living, breathing human being who composed some of the world’s most iconic music. Swafford mines sources never before used in English-language biographies to reanimate the revolutionary ferment of Enlightenment-era Bonn, where Beethoven grew up and imbibed the ideas that would shape all of his future work. Swafford then tracks his subject to Vienna, capital of European music, where Beethoven built his career in the face of critical incomprehension, crippling ill health, romantic rejection, and “fate’s hammer,” his ever-encroaching deafness. Throughout, Swafford offers insightful readings of Beethoven’s key works.

    More than a decade in the making, this will be the standard Beethoven biography for years to come.

  • Stop the Thyroid Madness: A Patient Revolution Against Decades of Inferior ThyroidTreatment

    **IMPORTANT TO READ: the "USED" books are NOT the most recent updated revision book, even if it automatically shows the new cover since it's the same ISBN. Neither are "COLLECTIBLES".

    Besides a new cover, there are now revised updates scattered throughout this acclaimed book alongside what was already life-changing information and still there! Many product names have been updated. There are exciting new, improved, and added details to both the adrenal chapters, alongside the adrenal treatment gold already in there.

    AND AS ALWAYS, NEW and FORMER READERS WILL LEARN THAT...

    • The TSH lab test and its ridiculous "normal" range is a complete failure for diagnosis and treatment.
    • T4-only medications like Synthroid or Levothyroxine result in lingering hypothyroid symptoms...sooner or later...
    • A large percentage of patients on T4, or held hostage to the TSH lab test no matter what meds they are on, end up with fatigue, the need to nap, adrenal problems, poor levels of iron, B12 or vitamin D, depression, rising cholesterol or blood pressure, etc.
    • Details on a far better treatment protocol that has been there all along, and it's PATIENTS who have figured out HOW TO GET WELL AGAIN.

Bowthorpe, M.Ed. became a thyroid patient activist in 2002 after a complete turnaround with the use of desiccated thyroid and correcting debilitating issues which plagued her after T4-only use.

    She is also the author of the newest book Hashimoto's: Taming the Beast.

Languages can be an interesting and fun topic of conversation. Perhaps you can find a native speaker who is willing to help you with pronunciation.

  • Hot Yoga, Coconut Water and Eustress: 10 Strategies for Bringing Intention to Your Leadership Practice

    This book includes excerpts from some of my most popular blog posts, presentations and other writing, along with new ideas and material. It is meant to stimulate your thinking about each strategy then give you structured guidance on how to incorporate the strategy into your intentional leadership practice. I use the term "leadership practice" as analogous to a yoga practice, or pursuit of excellence in and mastery in any field or area of life. The assumption is that leadership, like yoga, piano, sculpting or healthy living, is something that you: 1) make commitment to, 2) incorporate structured practice into your routine and 3) pursue unwaveringly over time. Some days' performance will be better than others', of course. You are not seeking perfect outcomes all the time, but perfect practice.
    As you read, think about times in your life that mirror the hectic scenario presented above and ways in which you might intervene on your own behalf. No one else will do this for you. Leadership is a choice.

  • Lords and Lemurs: Mad Scientists, Kings With Spears, and the Survival of Diversity in Madagascar

    In the extreme south of Madagascar is a place called Berenty, where Tandroy tribesmen, French lords, mad scientists, and two or three species of lemurs may be found gathered peacefully under a tamarind tree. Forty years ago Alison Jolly went to Berenty to study lemurs, and she has been enthralled by it ever since. In Lords and Lemurs she tells the story of the place, its people, and its other animals.
    The owner of Berenty, Jean de Heaulme, arrived there in 1928 as a six-month-old baby, riding with his mother in the sidecar of his father's Harley-Davidson motorcycle. The de Heaulme family has lived at Berenty ever since, supporting Madagascar's fight for independence from France, serving in the government, and enduring economic turmoil, civil war, and even imprisonment. Although they are relics of a colonial system that seized land and tortured dissidents, the de Heaulmes also epitomize noblesse oblige in the best sense of the phrase, showing a remarkable sense of responsibility for both the people and the ecosystem of Berenty. Early on they set aside a large portion of their estate as a nature preserve, where lemurs and other animals have thrived over the years. Jean de Heaulme became a blood brother to one of the local Tandroy nobles -- the kings with spears. Traditionally the Tandroy were warriors who raided for women, cattle, and slaves. Now those who live at Berenty can take what they need from the modern world -- medical care, education, and a cash income -- without giving up their own customs and way of life. Many Tandroy still live in traditional villages surrounded by walls of thorn, and even the men who hold salaried jobs work hard so they can return to their clan with enough cattle to buy a bride or two. When a clan elder dies, the family offers a grandiose funeral where, amid gunfire and dancing and merrymaking and sex, a whole herd of zebu cattle is sacrificed to honor the new Ancestor -- even if he happens to be a Christian. Alison Jolly and her husband were honored to be invited to attend a Tandroy funeral.
    Poignant and colorful, tragic and funny, Lords and Lemurs is a remarkable tale of one of the last great places on earth and the extraordinary people who live there, a tale of marriage, birth, and death, of spear fights and stink fights and dancing. It shows how human warmth and dignity can reach out beyond any social system.

  • The Emotionally Intelligent Investor: How self-awareness, empathy and intuition drive performance

    The Emotionally Intelligent Investor challenges several long-held assumptions and beliefs, by asserting that a good investment approach starts with introspection. Too many investment gurus tell you to emulate their techniques despite the fact that you may have very different personality traits, motivations and biases. Would Shaquille O'Neal tell a short basketball player to play like him? This book provides a unique template for self-reflection and a framework for developing an investment approach that works best with who you are.Whereas the consensus opinion is that investing success comes from blocking out emotions and making purely rational decisions, the best money managers actually use their feelings. They actively sense what others in the market are thinking, and they employ gut instincts when making decisions.

  • We Got the Water: Tracing My Family's Path Through Auschwitz

    We Got the Water is the story of the Klein family: Herman and Bertha, and their three children, Lilly, Oli and sixteen-year-old Gabi. In the spring and summer of 1944, along with more than 400,000 other Hungarian Jews, they were forced from their homes, rounded up, and sent to Auschwitz. The Kleins were aboard one of the very first trains of this mass deportation. Author Jill Gabrielle Klein follows her father, his sisters and their mother through Auschwitz and into slave labor camps in Poland and Germany, providing a narrative--both harrowing and inspirational--of resilience in the face of terror. As it charts the author's personal quest to reconstruct the past, the book also documents the inexorable disappearance of living Holocaust survivors, whose first-person accounts illuminate this dark period and inscribe it in our collective memory.

  • Punished by Rewards: The Trouble with Gold Stars, Incentive Plans, A's, Praise, and Other Bribes

    The basic strategy we use for raising children, teaching students, and managing workers can be summarized in six words: Do this and you'll get that. We dangle goodies (from candy bars to sales commissions) in front of people in much the same way we train the family pet. Drawing on a wealth of psychological research, Alfie Kohn points the way to a more successful strategy based on working with people instead of doing things to them. "Do rewards motivate people?" asks Kohn. "Yes. They motivate people to get rewards." Seasoned with humor and familiar examples, Punished By Rewards presents an argument unsettling to hear but impossible to dismiss.

  • The God Delusion

    A preeminent scientist -- and the world's most prominent atheist -- asserts the irrationality of belief in God and the grievous harm religion has inflicted on society, from the Crusades to 9/11.

    With rigor and wit, Dawkins examines God in all his forms, from the sex-obsessed tyrant of the Old Testament to the more benign (but still illogical) Celestial Watchmaker favored by some Enlightenment thinkers. He eviscerates the major arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of a supreme being. He shows how religion fuels war, foments bigotry, and abuses children, buttressing his points with historical and contemporary evidence. The God Delusion makes a compelling case that belief in God is not just wrong but potentially deadly. It also offers exhilarating insight into the advantages of atheism to the individual and society, not the least of which is a clearer, truer appreciation of the universe's wonders than any faith could ever muster.

  • Wittgenstein: Meaning and Mind, Volume 3 of an Analytical Commentary on the Philosophical Investigations, Part II: Exegesis §§243-247

    This third volume of the monumental commentary on Wittgenstein?s Philosophical Investigations covers sections 243-427, which constitute the heart of the book. Like the previous volumes, it consists of philosophical essays and exegesis. The thirteen essays cover all the major themes of this part of Wittgenstein?s masterpiece: the private language arguments, privacy, avowals and descriptions, private ostensive definition, criteria, minds and machines, behavior and behaviorism, the self, the inner and the outer, thinking, consciounesss, and the imagination. The exegesis clarifies and evaluates Wittgenstein?s arguments, drawing extensively on all the unpublished papers, examining the evolution of his ideas in manuscript sources and definitively settling many controversies about the interpretation of the published text.

    This commentary, like its predecessors, is indispensable for the study of Wittgenstein and is essential reading for students of the philosophy of mind.

    A fourth and final volume, entitled Wittgenstein: Mind and Will will complete the commentary.

  • The Lord of the Rings

    One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them

    In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell by chance into the hands of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins.

    From Sauron's fastness in the Dark Tower of Mordor, his power spread far and wide. Sauron gathered all the Great Rings to him, but always he searched for the One Ring that would complete his dominion.

    When Bilbo reached his eleventy-first birthday he disappeared, bequeathing to his young cousin Frodo the Ruling Ring and a perilous quest: to journey across Middle-earth, deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord, and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom.

    The Lord of the Rings tells of the great quest undertaken by Frodo and the Fellowship of the Ring: Gandalf the Wizard; the hobbits Merry, Pippin, and Sam; Gimli the Dwarf; Legolas the Elf; Boromir of Gondor; and a tall, mysterious stranger called Strider.

    This new edition includes the fiftieth-anniversary fully corrected text setting and, for the first time, an extensive new index.

    J.R.R. Tolkien (1892-1973), beloved throughout the world as the creator of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion, was a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, a fellow of Pembroke College, and a fellow of Merton College until his retirement in 1959. His chief interest was the linguistic aspects of the early English written tradition, but while he studied classic works of the past, he was creating a set of his own.

    Praise for The Lord of the Rings

    "An extraordinary work -- pure excitement." -- New York Times Book Review

    "One of the great fairy-tale quests in modern literature." -- Time

    "A remarkable book." -- Newsweek

    "A work of immense narrative power that can sweep the reader up and hold him enthralled for days and weeks." -- The Nation

    "Here are beauties which pierce like swords or burn like cold iron." -- C. S. Lewis

    "The first thing one asks of an adventure story is that the adventure should be various and exciting . . . Tolkien's invention is unflagging." -- W. H. Auden

    "J.R.R. Tolkien's epic trilogy remains the ultimate quest, the ultimate battle between good and evil, the ultimate chronicle of stewardship of the earth. Endlessly imitated, it never has been surpassed." -- Kansas City Star

    "A masterful story . . . an epic in its own way . . . with elements of high adventure, suspense, mystery, poetry, and fantasy." -- Boston Sunday Herald

  • The Lord of the Rings: A Reader's Companion

    In The Lord of the Rings: A Reader's Companion internationally acclaimed scholars Wayne G. Hammond and Christina Scull examine Tolkien's masterpiece chapter by chapter, offering expert insights into its evolution, structure, and meaning. They discuss in close detail important literary and historical influences on the development of The Lord of the Rings, connections between that work and other writings by Tolkien, errors and inconsistencies, significant changes to the text during its fifty years of publication, archaic and unusual words used by Tolkien, and words and passages in his invented languages of Middle-earth. Thousands of notes, keyed to standard editions of The Lord of the Rings but universally accessible, reveal the richness and complexity of one of the most popular works of fiction in our time. In addition to their own expertise and that of other scholars and critics, Hammond and Scull frequently draw upon comments by Tolkien himself, made in letters to family, friends, and enthusiasts, in draft texts of The Lord of the Rings, and in works written in later years which amplify or illuminate characters and events in the story. Extensive reference is made also to writings by Tolkien not previously or widely published, including elaborate time-schemes, an unfinished manuscript index to The Lord of the Rings, and most notably, the important Nomenclature or guide to names in The Lord of the Rings prepared for the use of translators, long out of print and now newly transcribed and printed in its entirety. With these resources at hand, even the most seasoned reader of The Lord of the Rings will come to a greater enjoyment and appreciation of Tolkien's magnificent achievement.

    Do you sense things aren't quite right with your child's school experience? Maybe your child is clearly struggling or, perhaps, your child is doing all right, but you believe something is lacking?

They also consider a variety of options regarding educational choices and the path to making them. Finally, they provide some questions (and hopefully answers) intended to help you make your way along this path.

  • The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2003

    Since its inception in 1915, the Best American series has become the premier annual showcase for the country's finest short fiction and nonfiction. For each volume, a series editor reads pieces from hundred of periodicals, then selects between fifty and a hundred outstanding works. That selection is pared down to the twenty or so very best pieces by a guest editor who is widely recognized as a leading writer in his or her field. This unique system has helped make the Best American series the most respected -- and most popular -- of its kind.

  • The Concept of Time

    The Concept of Time presents the reconstructed text of a lecture delivered by Martin Heidegger to the Marburg Theological Society in 1924. It offers a fascinating insight into the developmental years leading up to the publication, in 1927, of his magnum opus Being and Time, itself one of the most influential philosophical works this century. In The Concept of Time Heidegger introduces many of the central themes of his analyses of human existence which were subsequently incorporated into Being and Time , themes such as Dasein, Being-in-the-world, everydayness, disposition, care, authenticity, death, uncanniness, temporality and historicity. Starting out by asking: What is time?, Heidegger proceeds to radicalise the concept of time and our relation to it, ending with the question: Are we ourselves time? Am I time?

  • Portraits of American Bikers: Inside Looking Out

    Introduction (portion of) By Bill Hayes, Author, Motorcycle Culture Historian, and American Biker. It's been a long time since the mainstream media first discovered the motorcycle club culture and its seductive appeal. That particular journey has seen our lifestyle creatively populated by villains, clowns, cutthroats, buffoons, deviants, sadists, criminals, badasses, and everything in between. But no matter what characters or images the writers, reporters, producers, and directors have devised to represent our lifestyle, the bottom line is that people love it. They fear it. And deep down in those trembling, vicarious bones they would give anything to be a part of it. Anything, for just one ride in an endless pack, hammer-down in the screamer lane of some interstate. Anything, to walk proudly into a bar or an event with a set of colors on recognized colors that are not given, but earned, through serious effort, blood, and brotherhood. Anything, to be able to call a brother at any hour of the day or night when they needed help with anything, and to know that their back is covered. Anything, to be intimate with the powerful family life that is truly enjoyed and unapologetically embraced by so few. But envied or not, this way of life often comes at a high price. A patch on one s back can translate into a titillating target for law enforcement, as well as media. For a variety of reasons commercial gain, high-profile PR, and political pandering among them both have dipped to sordid lows in their pursuit of the biker essence. Those clowns and buffoons of the old B biker movies have increasingly given way to the cutthroats and the criminals. Entire television networks use shows about the presumed inside of the motorcycle clubs as their commercial anchors. Dozens of books and productions glorify the dirt-digging adventures of undercover law enforcement infiltrators, turncoats, and snitches...

  • Bread and Roses, Too

    2013 Laura Ingalls Wilder Award

    Rosa’s mother is singing again, for the first time since Papa died in an accident in the mills. But instead of filling their cramped tenement apartment with Italian lullabies, Mamma is out on the streets singing union songs, and Rosa is terrified that her mother and older sister, Anna, are endangering their lives by marching against the corrupt mill owners. After all, didn’t Miss Finch tell the class that the strikers are nothing but rabble-rousers—an uneducated, violent mob? Suppose Mamma and Anna are jailed or, worse, killed? What will happen to Rosa and little Ricci? When Rosa is sent to Vermont with other children to live with strangers until the strike is over, she fears she will never see her family again. Then, on the train, a boy begs her to pretend that he is her brother. Alone and far from home, she agrees to protect him . . . even though she suspects that he is hiding some terrible secret. From a beloved, award-winning author, here is a moving story based on real events surrounding an infamous 1912 strike.

  • Statistical Methods in Medical Research

    The explanation and implementation of statistical methods for the medical researcher or statistician remains an integral part of modern medical research. This book explains the use of experimental and analytical biostatistics systems. Its accessible style allows it to be used by the non-mathematician as a fundamental component of successful research.

    Since the third edition, there have been many developments in statistical techniques. The fourth edition provides the medical statistician with an accessible guide to these techniques and to reflect the extent of their usage in medical research.

    The new edition takes a much more comprehensive approach to its subject. There has been a radical reorganization of the text to improve the continuity and cohesion of the presentation and to extend the scope by covering many new ideas now being introduced into the analysis of medical research data. The authors have tried to maintain the modest level of mathematical exposition that characterized the earlier editions, essentially confining the mathematics to the statement of algebraic formulae rather than pursuing mathematical proofs.

  • The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter

    With the publication of her first novel, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, Carson McCullers, all of twenty-three, became a literary sensation. With its profound sense of moral isolation and its compassionate glimpses into its characters' inner lives, the novel is considered McCullers' finest work, an enduring masterpiece first published by Houghton Mifflin in 1940. At its center is the deaf-mute John Singer, who becomes the confidant for various types of misfits in a Georgia mill town during the 1930s. Each one yearns for escape from small town life. When Singer's mute companion goes insane, Singer moves into the Kelly house, where Mick Kelly, the book's heroine (and loosely based on McCullers), finds solace in her music. Wonderfully attuned to the spiritual isolation that underlies the human condition, and with a deft sense for racial tensions in the South, McCullers spins a haunting, unforgettable story that gives voice to the rejected, the forgotten, and the mistreated—and, through Mick Kelly, gives voice to the quiet, intensely personal search for beauty.
    Richard Wright praised Carson McCullers for her ability "to rise above the pressures of her environment and embrace white and black humanity in one sweep of apprehension and tenderness." She writes "with a sweep and certainty that are overwhelming," said the New York Times. McCullers became an overnight literary sensation, but her novel has endured, just as timely and powerful today as when it was first published. The Heart is a Lonely Hunter is Carson McCullers at her most compassionate, endearing best.

Scrooge also has a rich and powerful enemy who will stop at nothing, to ruin him.Fortunately, the ghost of Jacob Marley continues to play a role in his old partner's life. His assistance is crucial, since Scrooge needs all the help he can get if he is not to revert to his former wretched state.Character development, twists and turns, and a surprise ending are facilitated by period language and authentic settings.

  • Triumph: The Untold Story of Jesse Owens and Hitler's Olympics

    Why is it that some writers struggle for months to come up with the perfect sentence or phrase while others, hunched over a keyboard deep into the night, seem unable to stop writing?

    In July 2008, Moire O'Sullivan made a solo attempt on the Wicklow Round, a gruelling endurance run spanning a hundred kilometres over twenty six of Ireland's remotest mountain peaks. After twenty one and a half hours she collapsed, two summits from the end. Battered and bruised, yet undeterred, she returned a year later to become the first person ever to complete the Round in less than twenty four hours. "Mud, Sweat, and Tears" is the first book to tell one woman's story about her passion for mountain running, a passion that has brought her to the heights of some of Ireland's most impressive mountains and to the depths of her own human limitations. "Inspiring stuff: an awe-inspiring tale of guts, passion and pig-headed refusal to surrender." Richard Askwith, Author of Feet in the Clouds.

  • J.R.R. Tolkien: A Biography

    The authorized biography of the creator of Middle-earth. In the decades since his death in September 1973, millions have read THE HOBBIT, THE LORD OF THE RINGS, and THE SILMARILLION and become fascinated about the very private man behind the books. Born in South Africa in January 1892, John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was orphaned in childhood and brought up in near-poverty. He served in the first World War, surviving the Battle of the Somme, where he lost many of the closest friends he'd ever had. After the war he returned to the academic life, achieving high repute as a scholar and university teacher, eventually becoming Merton Professor of English at Oxford where he was a close friend of C.S. Lewis and the other writers known as The Inklings.

    Then suddenly his life changed dramatically. One day while grading essay papers he found himself writing 'In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit' -- and worldwide renown awaited him.

    Humphrey Carpenter was given unrestricted access to all Tolkien's papers, and interviewed his friends and family. From these sources he follows the long and painful process of creation that produced THE LORD OF THE RINGS and THE SILMARILLION and offers a wealth of information about the life and work of the twentieth century's most cherished author.

Authentic and updated -- nearly one third of the maps are new, and the text is fully revised -- the atlas illuminates the enchanted world created in THE SILMARILLION, THE HOBBIT, and THE LORD OF THE RINGS.
    Hundreds of two-color maps and diagrams survey the journeys of the principal characters day by day -- including all the battles and key locations of the First, Second, and Third Ages. Plans and descriptions of castles, buildings, and distinctive landforms are given, along with thematic maps describing the climate, vegetation, languages, and population distribution of Middle-earth throughout its history. An extensive appendix and an index help readers correlate the maps with Tolkien's novels.

    During Goodall's forty years of studying chimpanzees, she has become one of the world's most honored scientists.

  • Sober for Good: New Solutions for Drinking Problems -- Advice from Those Who Have Succeeded

    Finally someone has gone straight to the real experts: hundreds of men and women who have resolved a drinking problem. The best-selling author Anne M. Fletcher asked them a simple question: how did you do it? The result is the first completely unbiased guide for problem drinkers, one that shatters long-held assumptions about alcohol recovery.

    Myth: AA is the only way to get sober.
    Reality: More than half the people Fletcher surveyed recovered without AA.

    Myth: You can't get sober on your own.
    Reality: Many people got sober by themselves.

    Myth: One drink inevitably leads right back to the bottle.
    Reality: A small number of people find they can have an occasional drink.

    Myth: There's nothing you can do for someone with a drinking problem until he or she is ready.
    Reality: Family and friends can make a big difference if they know how to help.

    Weaving together the success stories of ordinary people and the latest scientific research on the subject, Fletcher uncovers a vital truth: no single path to sobriety is right for every individual. There are many ways to get sober - and stay sober. SOBER FOR GOOD is for anyone who has ever struggled not to drink, coped with someone who has a drinking problem, or secretly wondered, "Do I drink too much?"

  • American Biker: The History, the Clubs, the Lifestyle, the Truth

    American Biker: The History, The Clubs, The Lifestyle, The Truth is the long-awaited new work by Bill Hayes, author of the bestselling The Original Wild Ones: Tales of the Boozefighters Motorcycle Club. Expanding upon filmmaker Randall Wilson's documentary, American Biker, Hayes' book is perhaps the most comprehensive and introspective look at the biker world ever compiled. American Biker, the book, takes the four elements of its subtitle-the history, the clubs, the lifestyle, and the truth-and delivers on each with powerful impact. The History of the machine itself is there, of course, but more importantly, American Biker delivers a history of the motorcycle culture told from the inside; from those who have truly lived it. The Clubs-the MC-are reverently explored with an honest voice that doesn't come from law enforcement infiltrators, snitches, money-oriented opportunists, biased media, or anyone else on the outside of the culture. The Lifestyle-the image-is also examined; from the often fantasy-driven entertainment industry, to the weekend-warriors, to those who have truly made all of this a way of life. And because it is written from the inside, The Truth on all issues and aspects of the biker world is never compromised-even when discussing controversial topics. From club politics to Property of patches, from cop clubs to racism, American Biker never backs down. The voices of truth in American Biker include former United States Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell; Easyriders Europe Editor, Michael Stein; actor and biker Robert Patrick; Motorcycle Hall of Famers John Rogue Herlihy and Keith Ball; President of the mother chapter of the Hessians MC, Spike longtime member and officer of the Vietnam Vets MC, Popeye documentary filmmaker Randall Wilson; bikers on the street from Daytona to Sturgis to Hollister; and many, many more. The voice of author Bill Hayes is also heard loudly throughout, as it relates years of personal experiences. As it decries media exploitation and distortion. As it lays bare the never-ending battles between law enforcement and bikers. And as it speaks with genuine emotion and pure love and respect for the biker culture. American Biker is a must-read for anyone wanting to truly understand the biker lifestyle.

  • Building VBA Apps: Using Microsoft Access 2010

    Microsoft Access is a complete relational database management system that offers powerful tools for creating tables, queries, forms, and reports. Access includes another important tool: Visual Basic for Applications - an easy to learn yet full featured programming language that will take your database design beyond the normal. With VBA you can write code that lets forms and reports respond to events triggered by user or database interactions. With VBA you can programmatically access the data in tables stored either in Access or in ODBC (open database connectivity)-compliant database servers for the purposes of accessing, archiving or migrating data. Further extending the power of VBA is COM (component object model) which is used to extend the functionality found in Microsoft Access to include components found in other applications such as Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Internet Explorer. All of these topics, plus the basics of the VBA language, building error handlers, and more are covered in this book. This title is the fourth in a series on Building components for a Microsoft Access 2010 database. The books in this series focus on a task-based approach to learning Microsoft Access and therefore differ from other books that feature a complete review of all the commands and tools available in Microsoft Access. Schiavone taught database design for large organizations for over 10 years. This task-based approach to learning is the result of years of field experience in training office and technology workers what they need to know to get the job done.

  • One Giant Leap: The Story of Neil Armstrong

    As a young boy, Neil Armstrong had a recurring dream in which he held his breath and floated high above the people, houses, and cars. He spent his free time reading stacks of flying magazines, building model airplanes, and staring through the homemade telescope mounted on the roof of his neighbor's garage. As a teenager, Neil became obsessed with the idea of flight, working odd jobs to pay for flying lessons at a nearby airport. He earned his student pilot's license on his sixteenth birthday. But who was to know that this shy boy, who also loved books and music, would become the first person to set foot on the moon, on July 20, 1969. Here is the inspiring story of one boy's dream - a dream of flying that landed him more than 200,000 miles away in space, gazing upon the awesome sight of a tiny earth hanging suspended in a perfectly black sky.

  • Don't Be A Victim!: An Officer's Advice on Preventing Crime

    People are planning for world changing, collapse of society events in droves; from flu pandemics to potential electromagnetic pulses (EMPs). While this is a goal worth pursuing, the odds that any of these events will happen during an individual's lifetime are dramatically low. The last pandemic on the magnitude of the 1918 "Spanish Flu" was ... well, 95 years ago. The closest thing the world has seen to an EMP was the Carrington Event, a solar storm in 1859, 159 years ago. Meanwhile, in the United States alone, a violent crime happens every 1.2 seconds. Violence toward women happens every 7 seconds. Someone has their vehicle stolen every 17 seconds. A mass killing, where four or more people (not including the shooter) are killed, happens about every two weeks. While it is prudent to be prepared for catastrophes that could weaken or destroy a fragile social structure, we should not do so at the expense of guarding ourselves from threats that we are more likely to encounter. Written by a law enforcement veteran who has worked for police agencies across the United States, the U.S. Department of Justice and INTERPOL, Don't Be a Victim, offers common sense strategies to help prevent crime, protect your home, and keep your family safe from criminals. This book will educate you on: o Understanding the minds of criminals, their motivations and patterns of behavior o Preventive measures to thwart off criminals o Recognizing common threats, from at home to abroad o Preventing violent crimes against women, children, and the elderly, including internet crime, physical and sexual abuse and financial exploitation This comprehensive, yet easy-to-read book also provides helpful information on illegal drugs, carjackings, business and corporate security, and modern day fraud and scams. Don't Be a Victim is a must read for anyone seeking protection from the many dangers that threaten us every day.

  • The Healing Journey for Binge Eating

    We live in a society that spends billions of dollars on diets. The how-tos are plentiful, while the underlying issues are ignored--a pattern that keeps the diet industry thriving and the dieter in a perpetual cycle of failure. Throughout the pages of The Healing Journey for Binge Eating readers will learn to recognize their individual patterns that perpetuate an unhealthy relationship with food and their body as well as gain insight into the barriers preventing them from forming a healthy relationship with food. Just like putting a puzzle together, there is no specific order in which to use this workbook. Each chapter will serve as a piece of the puzzle for creating a healthy relationship with food by providing specific practices to implement as well as opportunities for self-reflection. The workbook, along with the journal companion, is designed to help one create an individualized healing journey. This workbook is broken into five parts (1) understanding your relationship with food, (2) slowing down, (3) making peace with yourself, (4) making peace with your body, and (5) tools for your healing journey. Each part takes the reader into an in-depth self-reflection of how they might be stuck. This workbook can be done with the assistance of a therapist, in a group, self-study, or as a participant of The Healing Journey for Binge Eating virtual retreats. Overcoming binge eating takes time, persistence, and patience. The Healing Journey series was designed to provide you with a step-by-step individualized path to your own personal recovery. This is not a quick-fix program; this is a lifestyle change. It is a self-awareness program. We are a quick-fix society. Each day we are inundated with hundreds of messages about how to go about losing weight. You have heard the messages "Lose weight in two weeks," "Walk it off," "Fit into your favorite dress by Labor Day." No wonder diets have a 95 percent failure rate. They set you up for failure and leave you feeling like you will never overcome your relationship with food. That food has the power over you, and that it is you that failed and not the diet. They couldn't be more wrong. Take a stand against the diet industry, throw out the diet books and the scales. Learn to adopt a philosophy of tuning into your body, instead of tuning out. Throughout this workbook there will be many opportunities to journal. It is also helpful to have a separate journal to elaborate on questions that resonate and hit home or purchase The Healing for Binge Eating Journaling companion. The use of journaling is a helpful tool to connect with your feelings. By using the written word, you are slowing down your mind, giving you the chance to draw parallels between what is going on (events/triggers) and what your needs (emotions/feelings) are at that time. This will give you the chance to create a deeper understanding of why you have stayed connected to your relationship with food. Try not to censor your responses; those are your truths for right now. It takes a lot of courage to put those words on paper and connect to them. In the words of Confucius, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."

  • Two Cities: A Love Story

    A redemptive, healing novel, Two Cities brings to brilliant culmination the themes John Edgar Wideman has developed in fourteen previous acclaimed books. It is a story of bridges -- bridges spanning the rivers of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, bridges arching over the rifts that have divided our communities, our country, our hearts. Narrated in the bluesy voices of its three main characters, Two Citiesis a simple love story, but it is also about the survival of an endangered black urban community and the ways that people discover for redeeming themselves in a society that is failing them. With its indelible images of confrontation and outrage, matched in equal measure by lasting impressions of hope, Two Cities is a compassionate, lacerating, and nourishing novel.

    The novel that became an award-winning play and a major motion picture and that has charmed generations of readers, Carson McCullers’s classic The Member of the Wedding is now available in small- format trade paperback for the first time. Here is the story of the inimitable twelve-year-old Frankie, who is utterly, hopelessly bored with life until she hears about her older brother’s wedding. Bolstered by lively conversations with her house servant, Berenice, and her six-year-old male cousin — not to mention her own unbridled imagination — Frankie takes on an overly active role in the wedding, hoping even to go, uninvited, on the honeymoon, so deep is her desire to be the member of something larger, more accepting than herself. “A marvelous study of the agony of adolescence” (Detroit Free Press), The Member of the Wedding showcases Carson McCullers at her most sensitive, astute, and lasting best.

  • High School Dropout to Harvard: My Life with Dyslexia

    School was a struggle for John D. Rodrigues. He knew he was smart, but teachers and classmates didn't believe him. All they saw was a kid who wore freakish orthopedic shoes, couldn't sit still in class, and struggled miserably with reading. At age sixteen, John had had enough. He dropped out, certain he'd never return to school.

    Thanks to a chance encounter, John discovered ice sculpting. Here, finally, was something the young man was good at, and he took to it passionately. His talent for releasing beauty from massive blocks of ice led to jobs working in famous hotels and on cruise ships. He was happy, but his failure to graduate tugged at the back of his mind.

    The failure, as it turned out, wasn't John's. It was the fault of the school system that had never diagnosed his dyslexia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Armed with strategies that played to his strengths, John passed remedial classes in community college and then went on to study at Harvard and the University of California, Berkeley.

    In High School Dropout to Harvard, John candidly recounts his inspirational journey and dispenses hard-won, practical advice for other readers who may be facing similar challenges.

  • Trauma and the Twelve Steps: A Complete Guide For Enhancing Recovery

    Criticism of 12-step recovery is nothing new; however, 12-step programs are increasingly getting a bad rap for being too "one size fits all," or not applicable to individuals struggling with issues beyond the scope of simple alcoholism or addiction, especially issues surrounding traumatic stress. "Trauma and the Twelve Steps: A Complete Guide to Enhancing Recovery" takes the posture that there is nothing wrong with using 12-step recovery principles in treatment or in continuing care with individuals who are affected by trauma-related issues. However, this book also explains how rigid application of 12-step principles can do more harm than good for a traumatized person, and that learning some simple accommodations based on the latest knowledge of traumatic stress can enhance the 12-step recovery experiences for trauma survivors. Written for professionals, sponsors, and those in a position to reach out and help recovering addicts, the user-friendly language in this book will teach you how to unify the traditional knowledge of 12-step recovery with the latest findings on healing trauma. In doing so, you will be able to help others, and maybe even yourself, "work a recovery" program like never before!___________________________________"At last, someone has thoughtfully and intelligently reconciled the practical wisdom of the 12 steps with best practices for posttraumatic stress. In "Trauma and the Twelve Steps," Jamie Marich tosses aside the rigid orthodoxies that have hampered both fields and delivers - in beautiful, eminently readable English - a coherent treatment approach that is sure to maximize sobriety and healing."-Belleruth Naparstek, Author of Invisible Heroes: Survivors of Trauma and How They Heal; creator of the Health Journeys guided imagery audio series"It's critically important for people in 12 step based-treatment to keep trauma in mind and not re-traumatize people with coercive practices like forced 4th and 5th steps or misguided ideas that addiction has nothing to do with trauma. I support these efforts, promoted in Dr. Marich's work, to help those whose choice of recovery paths is within the 12-step framework."-Maia Szalavitz, Journalist and best-selling author of Born for Love and The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog

  • Radio Mastery for VFR Pilots: Everything you need to know to talk to Air Traffic Control

    Why is it so hard to put an intelligible sentence together when you key the microphone of your aircraft radio? Communication on the aviation radio band is complicated. It's complicated because: --The language of air traffic control is specialized. --You must speak precisely and efficiently, without all the filler and extra words we use in everyday conversation. --Every time you key your microphone, the government and your peers listen to--and evaluate--everything you say. --You have to fly and navigate while talking. Any one of those 3 items takes a lot of concentration, and you are expected to do all 3 simultaneously, with little or no tolerance for error. When you look at the above list, it's no wonder so many student pilots, and even certified pilots, become brain locked when they key the microphone. The mental, and even physical demands of speaking on the aircraft radio are ridiculously high. Learning how to meet those demands takes training, patience, and practice; a lot of hands-on practice. Radio Mastery for VFR Pilots is the training and the practice you need to talk confidently to Air Traffic Control (ATC). From VFR flight in uncontrolled airspace through VFR flight at busy, controlled airports, every situation is covered with real-life examples and plenty of humor. Best of all, each chapter concludes with hands-on practical exercises you can apply in your airplane and at home. If you have been flying miles out of your way simply to avoid controlled airspace, Radio Mastery for VFR Pilots is the solution to your problem. If you have avoided contacting ATC for flight following because you believe it is "too much work," this book will change your mind. Whether you are just learning to fly, or you are a certified pilot, Radio Mastery for VFR pilots is going to open the door to ATC and make you a skilled, confident communicator on the aircraft radio.

  • Leaving Loneliness: A Workbook: Building Relationships with Yourself and Others

    Addressing persistent loneliness requires reflection and action to address the loneliness at its core. This book focuses squarely on what psychologists call your attachment style, an invisible but pervasive approach to relationships that influences how lonely or socially abundant your life is to become. Your attachment style can leave you nourished with love, isolated and longing, or trapped in stormy and unstable relationships, depending on your particular attachment style. Kirkus Reviews calls Leaving Loneliness, "A curative, uplifting workbook" (review is below). That is because attachment styles can be changed, and this workbook's purpose is to help you on your path to do exactly that. Are you ready to work on this? If so, use the reflective activities and begin replacing loneliness with connection.

    Kindle Edition:

    To respond to questions in the workbook, just touch the screen for several seconds, and a notepad will appear, allowing you to type and save your responses.

    Editorial Review:

    A gentle guide to healing childhood wounds and developing full, satisfying relationships in adulthood. Narang, in this book, seeks to identify barriers to emotional success, and his soothing tone enhances the work considerably. The author clearly explains the workbook's overall format and each activity's rationale ("you will address the problem first and then move toward building strength, much in the way that if you had an infection in your foot, you would heal that infection first before moving on to building muscles by running"). The variety of exercises is impressive. Not every exercise will apply to every person, he explains, which allows the reader to tailor the workbook to his or her own needs. This flexible approach, combined with the author's easily understandable, peaceful style, make this a restorative work for a wide audience. A curative, uplifting attachment workbook. -- Kirkus Reviews

  • A Million Steps

    Kurt Koontz thought he was well prepared for his 490-mile walking trip on the historic Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route in Spain. He was fit and strong. He had a good guidebook and all the right equipment. His pilgrim passport would grant him access to the shelter of hostels along the way. But all that, however helpful, did not begin to encompass the grandeur of his external or internal adventure. A Million Steps climbs over the high meadows of the Pyrenees, quests through the unceasing wind of the Meseta, and dances in the rains of Galicia. While following the yellow arrows that mark the route, Koontz also navigates through his personal history of addiction, recovery, and love. With outgoing humor and friendliness, he embraces the beauty of the countryside and joyful connections to other pilgrims from around the world. Part diary, part travelogue, A Million Steps is a journey within a journey all the way to the Cathedral de Santiago de Compostela and beyond.

  • Strangers in Paradise: How Families Adapt to Wealth Across Generations

    An astonishing fact is that the vast majority of the wealthy come from middle-class or working-class backgrounds. Born and raised in modest economic circumstances, they find themselves as adults in the wonderful but unfamiliar world of wealth, like immigrants to a new land. Their adjustment is often harder than they anticipate. Yet awaiting wealth's newcomers is an even more daunting task: how to raise children and grandchildren successfully in the family's new world of affluence. Written by a prominent wealth psychologist, Strangers in Paradise takes an innovative approach to the challenges facing wealth's "immigrants and natives." Combining clear reasoning with real-world stories, Strangers in Paradise outlines for the first time how the key process for families of wealth - like all immigrant families - is adaptation.

  • Sequoyah: The Cherokee Man Who Gave His People Writing

    The story of Sequoyah is the tale of an ordinary man with an extraordinary idea—to create a writing system for the Cherokee Indians and turn his people into a nation of readers and writers. The task he set for himself was daunting. Sequoyah knew no English and had no idea how to capture speech on paper. But slowly and painstakingly, ignoring the hoots and jibes of his neighbors and friends, he worked out a system that surprised the Cherokee Nation—and the world of the 1820s—with its beauty and simplicity. James Rumford’s Sequoyah is a poem to celebrate literacy, a song of a people’s struggle to stand tall and proud.

  • Hooligans and Rebels: An Oral History of Working-Class Childood and Youth 1889-1939

    In this fascinating book, Stephen Humphries examines all aspects of childhood delinquency, from hooliganism, teenage gangs and vandalism to juvenile crime and classroom anarchy. He shows that far from being simply the product of contemporary society, the rebellion of under-privileged children and youth has a long and compelling history. By drawing on oral testimonies and forgotten documentary accounts, the author evokes a vivid picture of young people at war with adults in the days when children were to be "seen and not heard". The recollections of working-class people, rarely if ever heard in conventional histories, provide an authentic and often moving account of how working-class children coped with an often harsh and oppressive world.
    Hooligans and Rebels will be welcomed by all those interested in oral history, and the history of youth in modern British society.

  • My Brother's Voice: How a Young Hungarian Boy Survived the Holocaust: A True Story

    Stephen Nasser somehow dug deep within his soul to survive the brutal and inhumane treatment his captors inflicted on the Jews. He was the only one of his family to survive--but the memory of his brother's dying words compelled him to live. Stephen's account of the Holocaust, told in the refreshingly direct and optimistic language of a young boy, appeals to both younger audiences and his contemporaries. Written in a straightforward, narrative style, Nasser avoids the cloying or maudlin language that characterizes some stories of the Holocaust. Perhaps it's for that reason readers will find his book one they won't forget--and one they recommend to others as a "must read."

  • Classic Home Desserts: A Treasury of Heirloom and Contemporary Recipes

    “More a story of the pleasures of real dessert-making than anything yet written.”—M.F.K. Fisher

    For this monumental collection, Richard Sax devoted more than a decade to searching out and perfecting more than 350 of the world’s most beloved desserts, “the ones made at home by mothers and grandmothers rather than by professional pastry chefs.” Every uncomplicated homespun classic is here: cobblers and crisps, cakes and cookies, puddings and soufflés, pies and pastries, ice creams and sauces—nineteen chapters in all.

Sidebars with every recipe—profiles of cooks, engaging recollections of favorite desserts, quotations from hundreds of literary works, and excerpts from old recipes—show how sweets are indelibly woven into the texture of our lives.

  • The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For

    From the author of Fun Home—the lives, loves, and politics of cult fav characters Mo, Lois, Sydney, Sparrow, Ginger, Stuart, Clarice, and others
    For twenty-five years Bechdel’s path-breaking Dykes to Watch Out For strip has been collected in award-winning volumes (with a quarter of a million copies in print), syndicated in fifty alternative newspapers, and translated into many languages. Now, at last, The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For gathers a “rich, funny, deep and impossible to put down” (Publishers Weekly) selection from all eleven Dykes volumes. Here too are sixty of the newest strips, never before published in book form.
    Settle in to this wittily illustrated soap opera (Bechdel calls it “half op-ed column and half endless serialized Victorian novel”) of the lives, loves, and politics of a cast of characters, most of them lesbian, living in a midsize American city that may or may not be Minneapolis.
    Her brilliantly imagined countercultural band of friends—academics, social workers, bookstore clerks—fall in and out of love, negotiate friendships, raise children, switch careers, and cope with aging parents.
    Bechdel fuses high and low culture—from foreign policy to domestic routine, hot sex to postmodern theory—in a serial graphic narrative “suitable for humanists of all persuasions.”

  • Nightmarriage

    Chad Thomas Johnston's Nightmarriage is a whimsical memoir that explores the terrors of marriage and the perils of parenthood. Adapted from Johnston's blog series of the same name, Nightmarriage proves that, when two people marry, their flaws tie the knot, too. In essays such as "My Wife, the Black Hole," "Hearts and Jumper Cables," "Knives and Wives," "Honeymoonwalking (to Jail)," and "Blessed Are the Tentmakers," Johnston weaves stories on his literary loom that are equal parts luminous and lunatic.

    Writing as only a minister's son with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder can, Johnston has crafted an observational ode to both the blunders and wonders of wedlock, and his writing is punctuated accordingly with absurd alliteration, appalling puns, and madcap metaphors. Nightmarriage is a must-read for fans of David Sedaris, Robert Fulghum, and Anne Lamott.

    While Johnston created the cover art himself, the interior of the book features original work by artists BARRR, Dan Billen, Ben Chlapek, Megan Frauenhoffer, Danny Joe Gibson, Mark Montgomery, and Darin M. White. The appendices of the book also include Twitter stream excerpts, recipes, artist information, and other miscellany from the world of Chad Thomas Johnston.

  • Divorce with Sanity: A Practical Guide to Divorce with Dignity, Self-Respect, and Cooperation.

    The sad and tragic truth in the U. S. is that more than 50% of all first marriages end in divorce. Most divorces occur within the existing litigated court process, wherein the divorcing parties are almost required by the very nature of the adversarial process to become antagonistic to each other, waste time and money, and treat children as pawns in their power struggle. The physical, emotional, psychological, and financial costs of litigated divorce can be enormous. Now, there is another way: Divorce with Sanity. Richard S Rabbin, a respected Family Law Attorney who has handled countless divorce cases during the past three decades, has written a book that provides people seeking divorce with an entirely different approach to the divorce process. People can separate with dignity, self-respect, and cooperation. They now have the tools to escape the adversarial divorce process and create their own divorce rather than allowing the court to do it for them.

  • Minimalism: Live a Meaningful Life

    Minimalism is the thing that gets us past the things so we can make room for life's most important things--which actually aren't things at all. At age 30, best friends Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus walked away from their six-figure corporate careers, jettisoned most of their material possessions, and started focusing on what's truly important. In their debut book, Joshua & Ryan, authors of the popular website THE MINIMALISTS, explore their troubled pasts and descent into depression. Though they had achieved the American Dream, they worked ridiculous hours, wastefully spent money, and lived paycheck to paycheck. Instead of discovering their passions, they pacified themselves with ephemeral indulgences--which only led to more debt, depression, and discontent. After a pair of life-changing events, Joshua & Ryan discovered minimalism, allowing them to eliminate their excess material things so they could focus on life's most important "things": health, relationships, passion, growth, and contribution.

  • Hallucinabulia: the Dream Diary of an Unintended Solitarian

    Hallucinabulia: the Dream Diary of an Unintended Solitarian is a document of disaster and recovery. The third volume in the Ghosts Trilogy, it joins Ghosts and Ballyhoo: Memoirs of a Failed L.A. Music Journalist and Chasing the Last Whale, a fictional black comedy about love and suicide in contemporary, wartime America.

    Like its two companion titles, Hallucinabulia explores the theme of overcoming a deeply traumatic past by transforming anger over loss into gratitude for what once was. Plagued by chronic nightmares until an incurable illness finally allowed him to achieve happiness, Wictor published this very private record in order to bear witness, banish, and entertain. The healing power of laughter is again demonstrated and affirmed.

    Wictor's near-perfect recall allowed him to capture some of the most off-kilter, frightening, strange, and funny imagery that a twisted imagination could ever devise. The diary--divided into twelve chapters organized by subject matter--provides context to the memoir and the novel by presenting the nocturnal battles the author fought with his demons, as well as the salvation that his angels conferred. Straight from Wictor's subconscious, the dialog, bizarre scenery, and outlandish situations are preserved in the form of intricately detailed short stories.

    The characters introduced in Ghosts and Ballyhoo and romanticized in Chasing the Last Whale are finally set free in Hallucinabulia, being no longer bound by law, nature, or even reality. The result is a book that travels an arc from incomprehensibly brutal to indestructibly optimistic, as intense evil gives way to infinite beauty and good.

  • Veterinary Epidemiology

    Veterinary Epidemiology is the study of disease and other health-related events in animal populations. It seeks to identify the causes and effects of disease, and investigates the ways in which infection is transmitted and maintained.

Veterinary Epidemiology provides a comprehensive introduction to the role of epidemiology in veterinary medicine. The concepts and principles of epidemiology are explained with illustrations drawn from both large and small animal medicine, and from the developing as well as the developed world. The methodology and interpretation of surveys, observational studies and clinical trials are explored, with emphasis on modern quantitative methods. Veterinary Epidemiology is an invaluable reference source for veterinary general practitioners, government veterinarians, agricultural economists and members of other disciplines interested in animal disease. It will also be essential reading for undergraduate and intermediate-level postgraduate students of epidemiology

  • Disabled Children: Challenging Social Exclusion

    There is ample evidence that disabled children are less valued members of society than able-bodied children.

Laura Middleton?s book aims to provide sound guidance for social workers, community carers, teachers and health visitors, and her book gives them a better understanding of the disabled child?s experiences and needs. She covers such key themes as discrimination, bullying, appeasement, abuse, communication issues, family support, and children?s rights. Methods for generating a better, more effective service for the child are fully explained and illustrated.

  • Allen′s Fertility and Obstetrics in the Horse

    Diagnostic procedures and treatment techniques commonly used in the routine management of brood mares are described with the reasons for their application. Attention is drawn to those areas where knowledge is scant and where popular belief appears to be misinformed. Whilst recommending what is considered to be ideal, an attempt has been made to set out what is practical, given that the cost of veterinary help can be prohibitive for some mare owners and inconsequential for others. The book has been written primarily for veterinary undergraduates and veterinary surgeons in practice. Additionaly, both mare and stallion owners may find the answers to some of the vexing problems they encounter when breeding their horses. Since the first edition was published in 1988 a number of important advances have been made including the use of ultrasound in diagnosis and the book has been fully updated and expanded to take account of the new developments.

  • A Serious Proposal to the Ladies

    Throughout her life, in her personal relationships as well as in her role as a public intellectual, the English thinker Mary Astell (1666-1731) supported women, wrote to and for women, and, to the greatest extent possible, moved from advocacy for to action on behalf of women. In her first published work, A Serious Proposal to the Ladies (London 1694), Astell proposed the establishment of an educational institution for women aimed solely at fulfilling their needs, a place where women could withdraw from a harsh and threatening world controlled by men and organized to suit men's desires, irrespective of women's. Perhaps nowhere is her feminist position more clearly articulated than on the title page of this, her first publication: she addresses herself to women, her aim is "the advancement of their true and greatest interest," and she identifies herself as "a lover of her sex."But, despite its importance, no previously available edition of A Serious Proposal to the Ladies has addressed the complications of Astell's prose style, and none has added the kind of glossing and notes that will assist student readers in their engagement with her distinctive voice. This edition, designed for classroom use, provides an ample introduction, a carefully modernized text, helpful glosses and notes, and a useful bibliography with references for further reading.

  • The Trouble With Physics: The Rise of String Theory, The Fall of a Science, and What Comes Next

    In this illuminating book, the renowned theoretical physicist Lee Smolin argues that fundamental physics -- the search for the laws of nature -- losing its way. Ambitious ideas about extra dimensions, exotic particles, multiple universes, and strings have captured the public’s imagination -- and the imagination of experts. But these ideas have not been tested experimentally, and some, like string theory, seem to offer no possibility of being tested. Yet these speculations dominate the field, attracting the best talent and much of the funding and creating a climate in which emerging physicists are often penalized for pursuing other avenues. As Smolin points out, the situation threatens to impede the very progress of science. With clarity, passion, and authority, Smolin offers an unblinking assessment of the troubles that face modern physics -- and an encouraging view of where the search for the next big idea may lead.

  • The Production of Space

    Henri Lefebvre has considerable claims to be the greatest living philosopher. His work spans some sixty years and includes original work on a diverse range of subjects, from dialectical materialism to architecture, urbanism and the experience of everyday life. The Production of Space is his major philosophical work and its translation has been long awaited by scholars in many different fields.

    The book is a search for a reconciliation between mental space (the space of the philosophers) and real space (the physical and social spheres in which we all live). In the course of his exploration, Henri Lefebvre moves from metaphysical and ideological considerations of the meaning of space to its experience in the everyday life of home and city. He seeks, in other words, to bridge the gap between the realms of theory and practice, between the mental and the social, and between philosophy and reality. In doing so, he ranges through art, literature, architecture and economics, and further provides a powerful antidote to the sterile and obfuscatory methods and theories characteristic of much recent continental philosophy.

    This is a work of great vision and incisiveness. It is also characterized by its author?s wit and by anecdote, as well as by a deftness of style which Donald Nicholson-Smith?s sensitive translation precisely captures.

    Amalia Bagnacavalli, an illiterate young peasant from the mountains near Bologna, is forced by poverty to take in a child from the city’s foundling home to wet-nurse. When Amalia contracts syphilis from the sickly and malformed baby given to her, the city fathers callously dismiss her pleas for treatment and restitution.
    Bewildered and frightened, she seeks out Augusto Barbieri, an ambitious attorney looking to make a name for himself. He takes up Amalia’s cause, fighting the case for years through the Italian courts before winning an unprecedented and stunning victory for his by now broken client. The unforgettable story of a landmark struggle for basic human rights, Amalia’s Tale is the moving drama of a rural woman whose life was ruined and the man from the city who would not stop -- or so it seemed -- until he had seen justice done.

  • Passive Annual Heat Storage: Improving the Design of Earth Shelters (2013 Revision)

    Still the World's Most Advanced Text on Earth Sheltering and Passive Solar Design!

    Passive Annual Heat Storage (PAHS) is a method of collecting heat in the summertime, by cooling the home naturally, storing it in the earth naturally, then returning the heat to the home in the winter. It includes extensive use of natural heat flow methods and the arrangement of building materials to direct heat from wherever you get it to wherever you want it, all without using machinery to make it work. With the rising cost of energy, all home builders should become familiar with basic PAHS principles.

    The goal of Passive Annual Heat Storage is to provide a method of placing building materials and organizing construction so the comfortable environments produced are continuously pleasant. The resulting subterranean home interiors are balanced with the natural environment and are able to extract all of their energy needs from their surroundings without using any commercial energy sources. Thus, there is no longer any need for using mechanical devices or causing any disruption in global ecosystems.

    Build a home that naturally stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer!

  • Kingbird Highway: The Biggest Year in the Life of an Extreme Birder

    At sixteen, Kenn Kaufman dropped out of the high school where he was student council president and hit the road, hitching back and forth across America, from Alaska to Florida, Maine to Mexico. Maybe not all that unusual a thing to do in the seventies, but what Kenn was searching for was a little different: not sex, drugs, God, or even self, but birds. A report of a rare bird would send him hitching nonstop from Pacific to Atlantic and back again. When he was broke he would pick fruit or do odd jobs to earn the fifty dollars or so that would last him for weeks. His goal was to set a record - most North American species seen in a year - but along the way he began to realize that at this breakneck pace he was only looking, not seeing. What had been a game became a quest for a deeper understanding of the natural world. Kingbird Highway is a unique coming-of-age story, combining a lyrical celebration of nature with wild, and sometimes dangerous, adventures, starring a colorful cast of characters.

  • Knitted, Knotted, Twisted & Twined: The Jewelry of Mary Lee Hu

    Over the past 40 years, Mary Lee Hu has affirmed her distinctive voice in the world of jewelry with her elegant, voluptuous creations. Using wire the way hand weavers use threads, Hu has blazed a trail as both artist and innovator, exploring the nexus between metalsmithing and textile techniques, often through the recovery of historical precedents from an ancient past, and inspired by her innate aspiration to perfection and her stubborn curiosity. Hu's apparently effortless and graceful creations, resulting from twining, weaving, knotting, and braiding, investigate both the possibilities and limits of wire by melding fiber art and jewelry, structure and pattern, light and line.

    Knitted, Knotted, Twisted, and Twined features exquisite earrings, rings, brooches, and neckpieces drawn from public and private collections internationally. The book traces the evolution and refinement of Hu's processes and skill from her earliest experimental pieces in the late 1960s--capturing the spirit of a time when craft and lifestyle were so passionately intertwined--to the confidence and movement of her contemporary creations.

  • The Perfect Mile: Three Athletes, One Goal, and Less Than Four Minutes to Achieve It

    There was a time when running the mile in four minutes was believed to be beyond the limits of human foot speed, and in all of sport it was the elusive holy grail. In 1952, after suffering defeat at the Helsinki Olympics, three world-class runners each set out to break this barrier. Roger Bannister was a young English medical student who epitomized the ideal of the amateur — still driven not just by winning but by the nobility of the pursuit. John Landy was the privileged son of a genteel Australian family, who as a boy preferred butterfly collecting to running but who trained relentlessly in an almost spiritual attempt to shape his body to this singular task. Then there was Wes Santee, the swaggering American, a Kansas farm boy and natural athlete who believed he was just plain better than everybody else.

    Spanning three continents and defying the odds, their collective quest captivated the world and stole headlines from the Korean War, the atomic race, and such legendary figures as Edmund Hillary, Willie Mays, Native Dancer, and Ben Hogan. In the tradition of Seabiscuit and Chariots of Fire, Neal Bascomb delivers a breathtaking story of unlikely heroes and leaves us with a lasting portrait of the twilight years of the golden age of sport.

  • Timber Designers′ Manual

    This major reference manual covers both overall and detail design of structural timber, including aspects such as shear deflection, creep, dynamic and lateral stability considerations for flexural members.

    It has been substantially revised to take account of changes since the last edition, nearly 20 years ago, and to include the latest revision of British Standard BS 5268-2 : 2002, which has brought design concepts closer to European practice and Eurocode 5.

    New features of the Third Edition include:

    • revised information on bolt values including a consideration of improved performance using 8.8 grade bolts
    • new chapters on composite sections and Eurocode 5 on structural timber
    • new developments in materials and products
    • horizontal roof and floor diaphragms
    • vertical shear walls

    The manual continues to provide extensive tables and coefficients that will save the practising engineer many design hours. It will also be of interest as a reference for civil engineering undergraduates and to timber manufacturers. Whilst the design examples in the book are based on BS 5268, a large part of the content will have international appeal, whatever code or standard is being used.

    From reviews of the last edition

    "the complete design manual ... a ?must?"
    Timber Trades Journal

    "the manual continues its established position as an authoritative reference and in providing numerous time saving design aids."
    Institute of Wood Science Journal

  • Eagle Pond

    This original paperback brings together for the first time all of Donald Hall’s writing on Eagle Pond Farm, his ancestral home in New Hampshire, where he visited his grandparents as a young boy and then lived with his wife, the poet Jane Kenyon, until her death. It includes the entire, previously published Seasons at Eagle Pond and Here at Eagle Pond; the poem “Daylilies on the Hill” from The Painted Bed; and several uncollected pieces. In these tender essays, Hall tells of the joys and quiddities of life on the farm, the pleasures and discomforts of a world in which the year has four seasons -- maple sugar, blackfly, Red Sox, and winter. Lyrical, comic, and elegaic, they sing of a landscape and culture that are disappearing under the assault of change.

  • Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic

    A fresh and brilliantly told memoir from a cult favorite comic artist, marked by gothic twists, a family funeral home, sexual angst, and great books.
    This breakout book by Alison Bechdel is a darkly funny family tale, pitch-perfectly illustrated with Bechdel's sweetly gothic drawings. Like Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis, it's a story exhilaratingly suited to graphic memoir form.
    Meet Alison's father, a historic preservation expert and obsessive restorer of the family's Victorian home, a third-generation funeral home director, a high school English teacher, an icily distant parent, and a closeted homosexual who, as it turns out, is involved with his male students and a family babysitter. Through narrative that is alternately heartbreaking and fiercely funny, we are drawn into a daughter's complex yearning for her father. And yet, apart from assigned stints dusting caskets at the family-owned "fun home," as Alison and her brothers call it, the relationship achieves its most intimate expression through the shared code of books. When Alison comes out as homosexual herself in late adolescense, the denouement is swift, graphic -- and redemptive.

  • Don't Sell Your Coat: Surprising Truths About Climate Change

    Not very long ago, scientists, politicians, and journalists were seemingly unanimous: Global warming had already damaged nature, and things were only going to get worse. Snow was rapidly becoming a thing of the past; summers were becoming hotter; storms were becoming more violent; droughts and floods were becoming more intense. This was a nightmare. In the end, though, little of this was true. And the whole idea of climate change was based on a lie: that weather and climate used to be nice. They weren't. As for our own time, snow cover is increasing; summertime heating is negligible; hurricanes are diminishing; droughts and floods both used to be worse. The real nightmare is the politics suffusing modern climate science and the effects this is having on every resident of planet Earth. Don't Sell Your Coat, besides bearing a suggestion for its readers, brings to the public the scientific argument that global cooling is as likely a scenario for the next few decades as any of the nightmares of Al Gore. It also allows non-scientists to enter the debate about climate change armed with facts and to have a sense of humor while they do so.

  • Why They Cheat and How They Get Away With It

    Why they cheat... Presidents, religious leaders, CEOs, school teachers, moms, dads, young, old...they all do it and it's all too common even in what many of us would consider 'great' relationships-but why? One recent survey showed that nearly 70% of respondents in self-described "monogamous" relationships have confessed they've either thought about cheating, have cheated, or are currently cheating...and their partner has no idea. In Why They Cheat and How They Get Away With It, J.L. Ford explains why almost every relationship is at risk and exposes that aspect of human nature that compels otherwise responsible men and women to act on the impulse to cheat-regardless of the personal or professional consequences.

  • Incendiary Circumstances: A Chronicle of the Turmoil of our Times

    "An uncannily honest writer." —New York Times Book Review

    The novelist and journalist Amitav Ghosh has offered extraordinary firsthand accounts of pivotal world events over the past twenty years. He is an essential voice in forums like The Nation, the New York Times, the New Republic, Granta, and The New Yorker, Incendiary Circumstances brings together the finest of these pieces for the first time—including many never before published in the States -- in a compelling chronicle of the turmoil of our times. Incendiary Circumstances begins with Ghosh’s arrival in the Andaman and Nicobar islands just days after the devastation of the 2005 tsunami. We then travel back to September 11, 2001, as Ghosh retrieves his young daughter from school, sick with the knowledge that she must witness the kind of firestorm that has been in the background of his everyday life since childhood. With a prescience born of experience, Ghosh warned decades ago of the dangerous rise of religious extremism. In his travels he has stood on an icy mountaintop on the contested border between India and Pakistan, interviewed Pol Pot’s sister-in-law in Cambodia, shared the elation of Egyptians when Naguib Mahfouz won the Nobel Prize, and stood with his threatened Sikh neighbors through the riots following Indira Gandhi's assassination. With intelligence and authentic sympathy, he "illuminates the human drama behind the headlines" (Publishers Weekly). Incendiary Circumstances is unparalleled testimony of an era defined by the ravages of politics and nature.

    Amitav Ghosh is acclaimed for his political journalism and his travel writing. The New York Times Book Review called his travelogue, In An Antique Land, "remarkable . . . rivals anything by the masters of social realism in modern Egyptian literature." He is also the best-selling author of four novels, including The Hungry Tide and The Glass Palace, which has been published in eighteen foreign editions. Ghosh has won France's prestigious Prix Medici Etranger, India's Sahitya Akademi Award, the Arthur C. Clarke Award, and a Pushcart Prize. Educated in South Asia, the Middle East, and the United Kingdom, Ghosh holds a doctorate in social anthropology from Oxford. He divides his time between Harvard University, where he is a visiting professor, and his homes in Kolkata, India, and Brooklyn, New York.



    Advance Praise for Incendiary Circumstances

    "This absorbing collection of essays by the novelist, journalist, and travel writer Ghosh . . . covers some two decades of catastrophe and upheaval, from sectarian violence in his native India during the 1980s through the September 11 attacks . . . to the recent Indian Ocean tsunami. With an eye for evocative detail, he illuminates the human dramas behind the headlines: the plight of tsunami refugees trying to rebuild their lives and finances after every bank record and piece of ID is lost to the waves; the courage of ordinary Indians protecting their Sikh neighbors from rampaging Hindu mobs . . . He is equally engaging when he turns from current affairs to literary essays on, say, the international culture of novel reading or the Kashmiri poet Agha Shahid Ali. Written in luminous prose with unusual understanding . . . an insightful look at a chaotic world." -- Publishers Weekly Starred Review

    Praise for Amitav Ghosh

    "Ghosh is adept at delineating the complicated crosscurrents of emerging national independence movements. He is even more impressive at portraying the different ways in which individuals react to the turmoil, hardship, and disorientation wrought by war.” – Wall Street Journal

    "A wonderful hybrid of travel writing, reporting, historical analysis, and memoir – in other words, the kind of piece [Ghosh] writes better than almost anyone else.” – Washington Times

  • Bury the Chains: Prophets and Rebels in the Fight to Free an Empire's Slaves

    From the author of the widely acclaimed King Leopold's Ghost comes the taut, gripping account of one of the most brilliantly organized social justice campaigns in history -- the fight to free the slaves of the British Empire. In early 1787, twelve men -- a printer, a lawyer, a clergyman, and others united by their hatred of slavery -- came together in a London printing shop and began the world's first grass-roots movement, battling for the rights of people on another continent. Masterfully stoking public opinion, the movement's leaders pioneered a variety of techniques that have been adopted by citizens' movements ever since, from consumer boycotts to wall posters and lapel buttons to celebrity endorsements. A deft chronicle of this groundbreaking antislavery crusade and its powerful enemies, Bury the Chains gives a little-celebrated human rights watershed its due at last.

  • Stir: Mixing It Up in the Italian Tradition

    Although Barbara Lynch was born and raised in South Boston, not Tuscany, many critics believe her food rivals the best of Italy. It has been praised by Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, and Gourmet, and many more.

    Lynch’s cuisine is all the more remarkable because it is self-taught. In a story straight out of Good Will Hunting, she grew up in the turbulent projects of “Southie,” where petty crime was the only viable way to make a living. But in a home ec class in high school, she discovered her passion. Through a mix of hunger for knowledge, hard work, and raw smarts, she gradually created her own distinctive style of cooking, mining Italian and French classics for ideas and seasoning them with imagination.

    The 150 recipes in Stir combine sophistication with practicality. Appetizers like baked tomatoes and cheese and crisp, buttery brioche pizzas. Dozens of the artful pastas Lynch is famous for, such as little lasagnas with chicken meatballs, and potato gnocchi with peas and mushrooms. Lobster rolls with aïoli. Chicken wrapped in prosciutto and stuffed with melting Italian cheese. Creamy vanilla bread pudding with caramel sauce. Accompanied by Lynch’s forthright opinions and stunning four-color photographs, these dishes will create a stir on home tables.

  • The Hallelujah Life

    Since 1989, nationally recognized activist and child advocate Richard Propes has traveled over 6,000 miles by wheelchair on a one-man mission he calls The Tenderness Tour. In 1989, Propes started The Tenderness Tour with $20 in his pocket, a backpack on his wheelchair, and an uncertain mission to travel for 41 days and over 1,000 miles along the roads of Indiana. A paraplegic and double amputee born with spina bifida, Propes had already far outlived expectations, though he'd experienced more than his share of tragedy along the way including experiencing childhood sexual abuse and the suicide of his wife and death of his newborn daughter. What started out as desperation turned into a life mission offering hope and healing to adults and children alike. Propes returned home from that first Tenderness Tour and set out to change his life and change the world. 30 years later, he's still traveling the roads at 2-3 miles per hour with at least one Tenderness Tour event every year, over 6,000 miles covered, and nearly one million dollars raised for organizations worldwide. Named as one of the 25 Best Wellness Books by Best Ever You, "The Hallelujah Life" is both a brutally honest story and a relentlessly inspiring journey of one man's search for tenderness and lifelong devotion to giving it to everyone he meets.

  • Viktor Frankl: A Life Worth Living

    When he was a teenager in Austria, Viktor Frankl began developing logotherapy, a revolutionary form of psychotherapy based on the belief that humanity’s primary motivational force is the search for meaning. Unlike most forms of psychotherapy, logotherapy encourages patients to look to the future and live their lives fully, rather than relive the past. Then something happened that put Frankl’s philosophies to the test: He and his wife and parents were sent to a concentration camp.

    Frankl survived; his family did not. In his grief, Viktor turned to his work. The outcome was his magnum opus: Man’s Search for Meaning, an account of life in the camps from the point of view not only of a survivor but a psychologist.

An estimated 95% of people have NEVER been taught this single biologically correct way hence the reason for obesity and disease problems throughout the world. This is not a diet but rather a very, very simple lifestyle. You can eat whatever you want whenever you want to. You do not have to become a raw foodist, vegetarian or vegan either. You never diet and you don't even need to exercise. Just eat what you love. After losing his father and brother to cancer while beginning a family of his own around 1991, the author spent over 5,000 hours over the next 20 years self-studying, analyzing and piecing together the world's best health, weight loss, anti-aging and longevity research from the past 80 years. His goal was to insure his children and their generations to come didn't suffer the same fate as his father and brother. 95% of all diets fail and we now know the reason. The mistake all diets make is they have you use willpower to create the needed behavior changes you need. They tell you to count calories, carbs, fats, proteins, eat small portions, etc. This is incorrect and has failed EVERY time with all diets as far back as the 1960's until now. The book shows you that the behavior changes you need will happen AUTOMATICALLY and EFFORTLESSLY when you give your body what it needs each day to create the proper internal balanced chemistry. The proper chemistry INSIDE your body will make the necessary behavior changes OUTSIDE your body that you need to make including stopping overeating, binge eating, snacking, portion control and will eliminate your cravings. You will easily be able to control your appetite while your hunger decreases and your metabolism increases. Food will lose its control over you. All these things happen automatically once you give your body what it needs each day so your internal chemistry becomes balanced. Never diet again, or if you enjoy dieting simply add the steps in this book to make your diet work much better. And while most diets make you less healthy, the lifestyle in this book will make you as healthy as you can be. The book can help everyone regardless of age, gender or ethnicity and regardless of whether you are a vegetarian, meat-eater or any eating style in-between. Testimonials from around the world from medical doctors, celebrities, Olympic athletes and regular people who have tried everything in the past and failed, show that the information in this book is THE proper way humans were meant to become and remain EFFORTLESSLY lean and healthy to 100 without EVER needing to diet, exercise or feel deprived in any way. Also, many moms and dads have told us about the amazing improvements this program has made to their children's attitudes and behaviors. Amazing things happen when you give your body what it needs each day and over 95% of people are not because they have never been taught. This book completely solves that problem.

  • Nursies When the Sun Shines

    Nursies When the Sun Shines is a godsend to parents of nursing toddlers, exhausted from late night wakings for milk. Beautiful watercolor illustrations and a sweet, lulling verse help young children understand the concept of night and day. Night time, the book explains, is for sleeping. "Nursies," on the other hand, happen when the sun shines. In Nursies, a toussle-haired toddler is snuggled up in bed with mom and dad, ready to go to sleep for the night, the family's grey striped cat snoozing soundly at their feet. When the toddler wakes at night for "nursies," mom shows her baby that it's dark outside, and assures baby that she'll have nursies when the sun shines. Later, with brilliant sun streaming through the window, the toddler knows it's time for nursies. The book closes with a heart-warming illustration of a nursing family: the toddler, nuzzled up to mama's breast, daddy kissing toddler's head, and even the family cat purring a love song. Nursies is a groundbreaking children's book, the first-ever to focus on night weaning. Its goal is to facilitate communication between parent and young child, thereby making the process of night weaning as gentle and easy as possible.

    Nursies When the Sun Shines is available in Spanish under the title Lechita Al Amanecer.

In her transformation lie the seeds for anyone who wants to conquer the past and create the future. This transcendent book shows what can happen when you discover who you are and then choose who you most deeply want to be.

    • How We Decide

      The first book to use the unexpected discoveries of neuroscience to help us make the best decisions

      Since Plato, philosophers have described the decision-making process as either rational or emotional: we carefully deliberate, or we “blink” and go with our gut. But as scientists break open the mind’s black box with the latest tools of neuroscience, they’re discovering that this is not how the mind works. Our best decisions are a finely tuned blend of both feeling and reason—and the precise mix depends on the situation. When buying a house, for example, it’s best to let our unconscious mull over the many variables. But when we’re picking a stock, intuition often leads us astray. The trick is to determine when to use the different parts of the brain, and to do this, we need to think harder (and smarter) about how we think.

      Jonah Lehrer arms us with the tools we need, drawing on cutting-edge research as well as the real-world experiences of a wide range of “deciders”—from airplane pilots and hedge fund investors to serial killers and poker players.

      Lehrer shows how people are taking advantage of the new science to make better television shows, win more football games, and improve military intelligence. His goal is to answer two questions that are of interest to just about anyone, from CEOs to firefighters: How does the human mind make decisions? And how can we make those decisions better?

    • The Land of Naked People: Encounters with Stone Age Islanders

      On a lush, remote island, modern civilization has recently made contact with what may be the last group of Stone Age people. The Sentinelese wear no clothes, do not know how to start a fire, and have fervently rejected the intrusion of outsiders. But that is changing, writes Madhusree Mukerjee, who has had exceptional access to that island and the others that make up the Andaman chain in the Bay of Bengal.
      Over seven years, Mukerjee found that other aboriginals on the islands have abandoned their ancient ways for enticements such as motorcycles and plastic toys. The price: outsiders have taken critical land, introduced serious diseases, and left the natives with a broken sense of self. This book offers unprecedented insights into the processes of colonization and modernization, the persistence of harmful myths about “savages,” and the perennially fraught relationship between light- and dark-skinned peoples.
      Mukerjee gives us a fascinating look at a world nearly gone. Combining anthropological findings with historical accounts and personal travel stories, she lets us glimpse a primeval, disappearing humanity.

    • Self Reliance - What Do Mean You Didn't Know?: African-Americans Achieving A Well Spent Life

      In the wake of America's long term fiscal deficit crisis and the strain that it places on the viability of the country's safety net systems like Social Security and Medicare coupled with the fact that most corporations are no longer establishing or funding traditional pension plans, the need to understand this notion of self reliance in the 21st century is now more important than ever for African Americans. A failure to recognize the role that you must play in securing the life that you have envisioned for yourself and your family could prove disastrous. In the end, I can't say that nobody really cares anymore but certainly, nobody should care more than you.

      Penned with a compelling elegance and charm, the "Practical Art of Suicide Assessment" is brimming with clinical wisdom, enlightening case illustrations and a vibrant sense of compassion. Viewed as one of the classics in the field of mental health, and acclaimed by both beginning students and experienced clinicians alike, it describes in a step-by-step fashion exactly how to make a sound suicide assessment. Dr. Shea explores the causes of suicidal ideation as well as the nuances of risk actors, protective factors, and the complexities of the clinical formulation of risk. He skillfully integrates all of this information for the reader by using real-life case examples and addressing daunting clinical challenges head-on such as assessing suicide risk with clients coping with borderline personality disorder or psychotic process. In addition Dr. Shea brings to life the highly acclaimed interview strategy for uncovering suicidal ideation, planning, behavior and intent the "Chronological Assessment of Suicide Events (CASE Approach)". Dr. Shea, the originator of the CASE Approach, shows exactly how to creatively and flexibly use its innovative interviewing techniques to match the unique needs of every client. The CASE Approach has been described by the noted suicidologist and past President of the American Association of Suicidology, David Jobes, Ph.D. as follows: "The CASE Approach moves the clinician almost imperceptibly into the secret internal workings of the mind and soul of the patient tormented by suicidal ideation. I believe that the CASE Approach is a remarkable conceptual and clinical contribution to the field of suicidology. It should be taught to any front-line clinician. It has the power to meaningfully save lives." Dr. Shea concludes the book with a no-nonsense approach to documenting a suicide risk assessment that can both help to save a client's life as well as keep the clinician out of court. Respected across the globe, the Practical Art of Suicide Assessment has been translated into languages as diverse as French and Japanese. Mental Health Presses is pleased to re-issue this classic in contemporary suicide prevention (originally published in 2002).

    • Japanese Yoga: The Way of Dynamic Meditation

      Based on the eclectic Western-Eastern teachings of Nakamura Tempu Sensei, this step-by-step introduction to Japanese yoga (Shin-shin-toitsu-do) presents stretching, healing, and meditation exercises designed for mind/body integration. It is the first book in English to detail the life and teachings of Mr. Nakamura. In Japanese yoga, which is based on mind and body unification principles, the ultimate goal is enhanced concentration, calmness, and willpower for a longer, healthier, and fuller life. H. E. Davey Sensei also shows how Japanese yoga relates to various classical Japanese arts as part of a tradition of spiritual practice with spiritual and aesthetic roots in India, Japan, and the West. Developed by Nakamura Tempu Sensei in the early 1900s from Indian Raja yoga, Japanese martial arts and meditation practices, as well as Western medicine and psychotherapy, Japanese yoga offers a new approach to experienced yoga students and a natural methodology that newcomers will find easy to learn. After a brief history of Shin-shin-toitsu-do, H. E. Davey Sensei presents Mr. Nakamura's Four Basic Principles to Unify Mind and Body. These principles relate the meditative experience to the movement of everyday living and thus make it a "dynamic meditation." Each of the Four Basic Principles is illustrated with step-by-step explanations of practical experiments. Readers are then introduced to different forms of seated and moving meditation, health exercises, and self-healing arts. All these are linked back to the Four Basic Principles and can enhance performance in art, music, business, sports, and other activities. Readers learn to use Japanese yoga techniques throughout the day, without having to sit on the floor or seek out a quiet space. Included at the end of the book are simple but effective stretching exercises, information about ongoing practice, and a glossary and reference section. Amply illustrated and cogently presented, "Japanese Yoga: The Way of Dynamic Meditation" belongs on every mind/body/spirit reading list.

      It is also a refreshing tool for music teachers, private instructors, and parents of musicians, who have a young artist in need of some rails to guide them down the songwriting tracks.

      Whether you're a beginning or advanced musician, author and musician Lisa Donovan Lukas compiles her years of experience teaching and working in the music industry to provide exercises that help the songwriter get started quickly; lessons on structure, lyrics, melody, harmony, and rhythm; and perhaps most importantly--the discovery and development of a good song idea.

      So grab your instrument (and maybe your teacher), and crack open this book to unlock the gates to your own musical journey.

    • My Mom My Hero: Alzheimer's-A mother and daughter's bittersweet journey

      #1 Amazon Best Seller in Memoirs category (June 2013) #7 Amazon Best Seller in Dementia (June 2013) #3 Amazon's "Most Wished For" in Dementia Category (June 2013) A Daughter's Newfound Love When Lisa Hirsch found out her mother, Ruth, had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, her love, appreciation, and caring for her mother was transformed. To Lisa's surprise, it has brought her and Ruth closer together than they've ever been. My Mom My Hero tells the story of this mother-daughter relationship through a series of entries from Lisa's internationally popular blog. Ultimately this is an uplifting and inspirational book for anyone who's going through the difficult and often lonely ordeal of caring for a loved one who suffers from this devastating illness.

    • Animal Welfare: A Cool Eye Towards Eden

      Man controls and dominates the habitat of most animals, both domestic and wild and there is a need for a pragmatic, workable approach to the problem of reconciling animal welfare with economic forces and the needs of man. It is the author?s contention that much of the current philosophical discussion of animal welfare is misdirected now that it is possible to measure to some extent what animals think and feel and how much they can appreciate their quality of life. The book deals with farm animals, pets, wild animals and laboratory animals and dicusses their environmental requirements, fear and stress, their response to pain, injury, disease and death, behaviour and aggression, and the implications of biotechnology and genetic engineering. Finally, the book tries to reconcile reverence for life with the inescapability of killing and reviews the prospects of preserving and enhancing quality of life for animals through legislations, education, economic and moral incentives.

    • Moving Freely Forward: A Handbook for Training Level Dressage

      All too often, dressage books attempt to cover the entire breadth of the discipline within their pages, giving short shrift to any one level. In Moving Freely Forward--the first volume in a three-part series covering training, first, and second level--Krister Swartz gets into the nitty-gritty of training level dressage. In lively language and using analogies that bring the overarching principles of correct riding to life, he breaks down the fundamental skills and concepts needed for training level into pieces that every rider can grasp. A USDF 'L' graduate with distinction, he explains what the judge is looking for at training level, how she arrives at the score for each movement, and what qualities determine each collective score. In an informative lunging primer, he demystifies this essential art, dissecting the techniques that a skilled lunger takes for granted. Finally, in a section that will be invaluable for competitors who must often work on their own, he walks the reader through each training level test, giving concrete advice that will help the rider focus on the essentials and ride proactively, resulting in a confident, purposeful test. Miranda Ottewell's illustrations bring essential principles of riding to life, and illuminate the way the biomechanics of horse and rider function together to achieve the ideal we all recognize when we see a horse and rider in harmony.

    • The Formation Of A Persecuting Society: Power And Deviance In Western Europe, 950-1250

      The Tenth to the Thirteenth centuries in Europe saw the appearance of popular heresy and the establishment of the inquisition; expropriation and mass murder of Jews; the foundation of leper hospitals in large numbers and the propagation of elaborate measures to segregate lepers from the healthy. These have traditionally been seen as distinct and separate developments, and explained in terms of the problems which their victims presented to medieval society. In this stimulating book Robert Moore argues that the coincidences in the treatment of these and other minority groups cannot be explained independently, and that all are part of a pattern of persecution which now appeared for the first time to make Europe become, as it has remained, a persecuting society.

    • The Seven Sins of Memory: How the Mind Forgets and Remembers

      A groundbreaking work by one of the world's foremost psychologists that delves into the complex behavior of memory.

       

      In this fascinating study, Daniel L. Schacter explores instances of what we would consider memory failure—absent-mindedness, transience, blocking, misattribution, suggestibility, bias, and persistence—and suggests instead that these miscues are actually indications that memory is functioning as designed. Drawing from vivid scientific research and creative literature, as well as high-profile events in which memory has figured significantly (Bill Clinton's grand jury testimony, for instance), The Seven Sins of Memory provides a more nuanced understanding of how memory and the mind influence each other and shape our lives.

    • The Knowledge Deficit: Closing the Shocking Education Gap for American Children

      The Knowledge Deficit illuminates the real issue in education today -- without an effective curriculum, American students are losing the global education race.

Hirsch corrects popular misconceptions about hot issues in education, such as standardized testing, and takes to task educators' claims that they are powerless to overcome class differences. Ultimately, this essential book gives parents and teachers specific tools for enhancing children's abilities to fully understand what they read.

    • Voice of Reason: Speaking to the Great and Good Spirit of Revolution of Mind

      Critically acclaimed by some of the world's top humanitarian, academic, and counter-culture icons, McGill's Voice of Reason is an illuminating, yet distressing plea for safety and freedom in a world of uncertainty, violence, and liberty lost. Sometimes eloquently poetic, other times harshly incriminating and shocking, McGill delivers a lovely and inspirational, yet thought-provoking book about the balance of mind and heart. Voice of Reason is a wake-up call for a world in deep crisis, a world which is becoming a global battlefield, and where our poor relationships are increasingly based on self-interest. Exploring the true nature of violence, the destruction of diversity by monocultures, and the cancerous growth of unchecked, predatory corporate capitalism, McGill paints a grim picture of today's materialistic consumer life. Speaking directly to the heart of revolution, from Zuccotti Park to Tehran, McGill believes we must revolt against the endless manipulation and oppression of modern life, and reject the traditions of violence, which have made each of us agents of violence ourselves. McGill explores many solutions to our cultural, political, economic, and environmental miseries, such as achieving greater individual consciousness and compassion, empowering youth, and restoring the woman to her rightful place, as the strong, loving maternal leader of peace and reason. As McGill writes, "The battlefields of life were first meadows and gardens. We made them into battlefields, and by the same power, we must release the dark spell, so they are meadows and gardens once again."

    • Theorizing Museums: Representing Identity and Diversity in a Changing World

      Museums are key cultural loci of our times. They are symbols and sites for the playing out of social relations of identity and difference, knowledge and power, theory and representation. These are issues at the heart of contemporary anthropology, sociology and cultural studies.

      This volume brings together original contributions from international scholars to show how social and cultural theory can bring new insight to debate about museums. Analytical perspectives on the museum are drawn from the anthropology and sociology of globalization, time, space and consumption, as well as from feminism, psychoanalysis, experimental ethnography and literary theory. These perspectives are brought to bear on questions of museums? changing role and position in the representation of the nation-state, of community, and of gender, class and ethnicity.

      The examples in this book are drawn from different kinds of museum around the world, and include significant controversial and experimental exhibitions; the Enola Gay at the Smithsonian; feminist exhibitions in Scandinavia; the National Museum of Sri Lanka; Victorian art at the Tate; the representation of race at Colonial Williamsburg and of colonialism and identity in Canada.

    • Essential Latin Vocabulary: The 1,425 Most Common Words Occurring in the Actual Writings of over 200 Latin Authors

      This book is designed to help beginning and intermediate students master the vocabulary necessary to read real Latin with fluency and comprehension. It also serves as a resource for instructors and tutors. The text presents 1,425 words that allow a student to comprehend about 95 percent of all the vocabulary they will ever see in an actual Latin text. The terms found in the present book have been culled from statistical analyses of the works of more than two hundred authors in order to identify the core vocabulary. Were students to start out by learning the 25 most common words on this list, an astonishing 29 percent of all the vocabulary ever needed would be at their command. If a student masters the 300 most frequent words in this list, well over half of all the vocabulary necessary for fluent reading will be theirs. The goal of the book is to provide the student with the most efficient way to learn vocabulary. Chapters 1 and 2, in particular, are designed for drill, review, and study. The first chapter draws together all words that share the same grammatical classification. For example, all third declension neuter nouns are brought together in one place, with their definitions. By listing the vocabulary in grammatical groups, all the words that share a set of endings are assembled for the student: vocabulary and endings thus reinforce each other. Furthermore, each list of terms is broken down into groups of five words for ease in drawing up vocabulary lists to work with. Within the grammatical lists, each part of speech is preceded by an account of how the terms within are distributed. A student thus quickly learns that while there are 413 verbs that need to be mastered, well over one-third of these (157) are found in the third conjugation, while only about one per-cent (21) will be found in the fourth conjugation. With such information, independent students or instructors can prioritize their study and assignments more appropriately. In the second chapter, large parts of the vocabulary, with their attendant definitions, are regrouped by topics. A student who wishes, therefore, to focus on nature, human emotions, or military issues, will find such vocabulary conveniently grouped together. Chapter three lists the vocabulary terms from the most frequently occurring words to the least frequent. Students or instructors who wish to lean more heavily on the most (or least!) frequently occurring terms within their drills and studies can thus consult this frequency list. After the frequency list, the fourth chapter presents an alphabetical index of the terms. Two final chapters close the text. The first is a list of endings and paradigms for nouns, adjectives and verbs. Complete paradigms and endings are given for review. The final chapter provides the student with an additional one hundred words that are uniquely common in the Latin of the Middle Ages. These one hundred words, if added to the mix, would give the student a Mediaeval vocabulary that would match the efficiency of the Classical vocabulary that is the main focus of the book. For the effort of learning an additional one hundred words, another 1,000 years of Latin texts open up before the student. As a whole, then, this book offers the vocabulary that forms the core of one thousand seven hundred years of Latin literature. If the goal is to learn to read Latin with joy and ease, then the vocabulary terms in this book are one of the major keys to success. By learning these terms, a student's vocabulary should be ready to tackle the Latin of any era from the Classical period to the Renaissance.

      • The Making of English Law

        This volume, originally intended asthe first of two comprising The Making of English Law, provides the first full-length account of the Old English law-codes for over eighty years, and the first that has ever been published in the English language. It is designed to be both an authoritative work of reference for scholars seeking enlightenment on particular legal manuscripts or texts and a coherent account of how the corpus of Old English law from the seventh to the twelfth century came to subsist and survive.

        Part I opens with an account of the historians of early English law, including the immortal F. W. Maitland (1850-1906) and Felix Liebermann, author of the definitive edition of the law codes (1898-1916). It then provides the most detailed examination English of law and legislation on the European continent in the post-Roman era and of the earliest Anglo-Saxon legislators in the seventh century. This sets the scene for the law making of King Alfred and his successors.

        As well as providing an authoritative account of Anglo-Saxon legislation this much-anticipated book opens new perspectives on the emergence of the English State. It will be welcomed as a landmark in the study of English law and government, and as an exploration of the problem of authority in a pre-modern society.

        These changes are to be made to the about the book section and author bio and also to the jacket copy and should be fed out to all relevant websites.

      • Winning With AB32

        "Winning with AB32" was recently featured in the Nov. 15th issue of the Pacific Coast Business Times in an article by Stephen Nellis. California's AB32 is not friendly to businesses. However, within this law there will be Winners and Losers. It's not about hugging trees, it's about increasing your profits and growing your business. The real Winners will be the businesses with enough vision to set goals well beyond the AB32 requirements, and then monetize the reductions. That's the key to winning. They will sell the reductions as offset credits to other businesses in California to create a new revenue stream for themselves. These businesses will quickly learn that by executing a successful program just once, they can create recurring CO2 offsets that can be monetized year after year. The Losers will stand in line to buy these offsets, and once the game gets going, it will be too late for them to do much of anything else. The Winners will be all too happy to sell them their salvation. Legislation and regulations come and go, but "saving money never goes out of style." The businesses that choose this strategy are the real Winners. And you can take that to the bank.

      • 'I Think My Dad Was Born in a Barn': 'My father's memories of everyone's childhood'

        "You see, with Dad there was very little warning, if any at all. As I have said countless times before, while Dad was serving in Korea, he must have also trained as a Ninja warrior. He could take his belt off, whoop us and have his belt back on and buckled before we had a chance to cry. Just scant seconds before Dad pounced on me like a bobcat on a mule carcass; I threw up the white flag. At that moment I would have been willing to get up from the table and walk the seven miles to the barber. Without striking a single blow Dad made his point and got his desired results. Now, that is talent." A compilation of witty short stories written by Tony Windsor as they appear in his weekly newspaper column. Tony's son, Aaron Windsor, decided to pull together over 90 of his father's columns and develop this book. In what might be considered "Wonder Years" meets "The Waltons," Tony has chronicled moments in his life that everyone can identify with and feel an intricate part of. More than a "walk down memory lane," this book will transport people of any age back to a time in their own lives that will be sure to result in a smile, giggle, or out and out laughter. Each story stands on its own and provides short, but extremely detailed accounts of events that are sometimes hilarious, sometimes sobering, but always extraordinarily entertaining. Read it to yourself, read it out loud, just read it and enjoy!

      • The New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know

        In this fast-paced information age, how can Americans know what's really important and what's just a passing fashion? Now more than ever, we need a source that concisely sums up the knowledge that matters to Americans -- the people, places, ideas, and events that shape our cultural conversation. With more than six thousand entries,The New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy is that invaluable source.
        Wireless technology. Gene therapy. NAFTA. In addition to the thousands of terms described in the original Dictionary of Cultural Literacy, here are more than five hundred new entries to bring Americans' bank of essential knowledge up to date. The original entries have been fully revised to reflect recent changes in world history and politics, American literature, and, especially, science and technology. Cultural icons that have stood the test of time (Odysseus, Leaves of Grass, Cleopatra, the Taj Mahal, D-Day) appear alongside entries on such varied concerns as cryptography, the digital divide, the European Union, Kwanzaa, pheromones, SPAM, Type A and Type B personalities, Web browsers, and much, much more.
        As our world becomes more global and interconnected, it grows smaller through the terms and touchstones that unite us. As E. D. Hirsch writes in the preface, "Community is built up of shared knowledge and values -- the same shared knowledge that is taken for granted when we read a book or newspaper, and that is also taken for granted as part of the fabric that connects us to one another." A delicious concoction of information for anyone who wants to be in the know, The New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy brilliantly confirms once again that it is "an excellent piece of work . . . stimulating and enlightening" (New York Times) -- the most definitive and comprehensive family sourcebook of its kind.

      • VACCeptable Injuries: Increasing Childhood Diseases & Developmental Disorders

        Using a highly personal approach, VACCeptable Injuries: Increasing Childhood Diseases & Developmental Disorders educates parents about the scientifically-documented risks involved in vaccination. Author Markus Heinze speaks from traumatic personal experience, as the father of a vaccine-injured child. His daughter developed type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disease, at the age of three-and-a-half-years old. After much research in scientific journals and federal databases, he has concluded that a Hepatitis B vaccine, administered shortly after her birth, is to blame. "You don't have to play the lottery with your children's life, hoping nothing goes wrong when they are injected with the potentially lethal neurotoxins routinely included in vaccines," writes Heinze. "This book provides you with a review of the medical and scientific literature surrounding vaccination risks as well as personal stories from those whose lives have been touched by vaccine-related injuries." According to the author's research, tens of thousands of children are severely injured, or in some cases, killed by their exposure to vaccines. Targeting parents and health professionals, VACCeptable Injuries draws on verifiable databases and peer-reviewed research to make its controversial claims. Heinze is aware that many will try to discredit his work, given that he is not a doctor or a scientist. With a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree in education, he is equipped to analyze scientific claims of experienced researchers who have been investigating the connections and correlations between vaccinations and the development of childhood autoimmune disorders, such as type-1 diabetes. Through his academic research, he has discovered that vaccines pose an ongoing danger to our children. Heinze's book is a good choice read before doctors and nurses approach your family and newborn bundle of joy with a vaccination injector in hand. What lies inside the hypodermic needle is a potential mix of neurotoxins and other reactive chemical preservatives that will challenge an infant's fragile immune system to its core. As the author reminds the readers, most parents wouldn't take a chance on a car seat or formula without first consulting the literature or their friends. Yet when we cede ultimate authority over vaccinations to our pediatrician, we throw a far more consequential decision into another's hands without having personally done the requisite research. This book will help parents make a proactive, informed choice no matter what their ultimate decision may end up being. "Only parents whose children have been harmed by a vaccine, or who know children who have been harmed by a vaccine, tend to research the topic of vaccine safety and effectiveness on their own," writes Heinze. "I am one of those parents." Drawing on his research and his anger over his daughter's illness, the author writes with passion about a topic of vital interest to families everywhere. Cogent and comprehensive, VACCeptable Injuries will transform your understanding of vaccines and pediatric medicine alike.

Its three chapters: Colors, Typography, and Composition Patterns build from individual map components to cohesive cartographic constructions.

      • The Way We Work

        In this comprehensive and entertaining resource, David Macaulay reveals the inner workings of the human body as only he could. In order to present this complicated subject in an accurate and entertaining way, he put in years of research. He sat in on anatomy classes, dissections, and even reached inside the rib cages of two cadavers to compare their spleen sizes. He observed numerous surgeries, including a ten-hour procedure where a diseased pancreas was removed, as well as one where a worn-out old knee was replaced by a brand new one. This hands-on investigation gives Macaulay a unique perspective to lead his readers on a visual journey through the workings of the human body.

        The seven sections within the book take us from the cells that form our foundation to the individual systems they build. Each beautifully illustrated spread details different aspects of our complex structure, explaining the function of each and offering up-close glimpses, unique cross-sections and perspectives, and even a little humor along the way.
        This one-of-a-kind book can serve as a reference for children, families, teachers, and anyone who has questions about how his or her body works. When readers see how David Macaulay builds a body and explains the way it works, they will come away with a new appreciation of the amazing world inside them.

      • BEGINNING LIVES LD

        In this text book Rosalind Hursthouse examines the complex questions surrounding the morality of abortion. Beginning by discussing the moral status of the foetus, she outlines and criticizes the main philosophical liberal positions on abortion, discussing alsl their bearing on the related issues of ifanticide, foetal research, surrogacy, murder and our treatment of animals. In place of the currently prevailing positions, the author offers a novel approach to these issues based on the recently revived theory of neo-Aristotelianism which emphasizes moral virtues and vices.

        A central element of Beginning Lives is its emphasis on the special nature of abortion: its unique relation to the facts of women?s pregnancies and hence to our attitudes to childbearing, motherhood, maturity and sexual relations.

In time, Anne grows to understand MacLeod's plight and finds it increasingly difficult to resist Calum's unsettling charm--until the baron sends a reply agreeing to terms. Ripped from passion that will be forever seared into their souls, will Anne and Calum risk everything for love?

      • Anger Management Essentials: A Workbook for People to Manage their Aggression

        Anger Management Essentials is a workbook to help people with anger issues to manage their aggressive behavior. While anger is a normal emotion, aggressive behavior is what we really want to manage since it is often emotionally or physically harmful. Why do we call it an anger management program and not aggressive management? We do so because people know to look for anger management - since the phrase has become widely recognized in our culture. Though the material in this book is best used with a certified anger management counselor, most of the worksheets are self-explanatory, and thus could be used as a self-help workbook. Many people have the misperception that an anger management program is for very angry people - ones who punch holes through walls or break items, and get into fits of rage. What may come as a surprise, however, is that anger management is helpful for many people, since we all experience moments of irritability and frustration. Additionally, anger management includes effective communication and active listening skills, both which can be used in every day life. The author, Anita Avedian, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, had a vision to design an anger management program that could be customized for every reader, focusing primarily on the areas where improvement in dealing with anger is most needed. Ms. Avedian is an authorized trainer and supervisor with the National Anger Management Association (NAMA). She has been facilitating anger management groups and individual sessions for over 15 years. Having worked with court-ordered, probation-required, partner-recommended, work-required, and self-referred individuals, she has designed a program that is helpful in these varied situations. Most anger management programs are designed to last 26 weeks, however this book provides ample tools and skills to be structured into a course up to 52 weeks long, consistent with some court orders. The content can be personalized to suit your individual needs. The workbook covers areas that both directly and indirectly impact one's anger. Stress Management, for example, is a key focus since the more stressors one has, the more likely one is to become angry. Another area covered in the workbook is Emotional Intelligence, due to the high correlation between lower emotional intelligence levels and a greater number of angry episodes. Other topics include Communication and Listening Skills, Developing Healthy Relationships and Boundaries, as well as Letting Go and Forgiveness. Anger Management Essentials is for those interested in managing aggressive behavior, and living a more fulfilling and peaceful life.

      • Veterinary Ectoparasites: Biology, Pathology and Control

        Ectoparasites are of growing significance in modern veterinary medicine and a detailed understanding of the biology of these parasites is fundamental to their appropriate treatment and control. The authors of this book have therefore provided a complete overview of the biology, and behaviour of arthropod ectoparasites along with the pathology and treatment of diseases in livestock and companion animals of temperate habitats.

        This is the only up-to-date book available written specifically for practitioners and students of veterinary medicine, animal husbandry and applied animal sciences. Such a unique volume is essential because in veterinary parasitology, ectoparasites such as the lice, mites, ticks, fleas or dipteran agents of myiasis assume far greater prominence than in other parasitological disciplines. Ectoparasite infestation of domestic and companion animals, therefore, has overt clinical features requiring a distinct approach to diagnosis and control. This book has been written with this in mind. The text takes a unique integrated approach combining both ectoparasite biology and veterinary dermatology.

        In the second edition of this successful book (previously, entitled Veterinary Parasitology), the detailed coverage of individual ectoparasite species has been expanded. Up-to-date information of new veterinary drugs and modes of application has been included and the practical clinical relevance of the information has been strengthened.

      • Classified Woman-The Sibel Edmonds Story: A Memoir

        In this startling new memoir, Sibel Edmonds--the most classified woman in U.S. history--takes us on a surreal journey that begins with the secretive FBI and down the dark halls of a feckless Congress to a stonewalling judiciary and finally, to the national security whistleblowers movement she spearheaded. Having lived under Middle East dictatorships, Edmonds knows firsthand what can happen when government is allowed to operate in secret. Hers is a sobering perspective that combines painful experience with a rallying cry for the public's right to know and to hold the lawbreakers accountable. With U.S. citizens increasingly stripped of their rights in a calibrated media blackout, Edmonds' story is a wake-up call for all Americans who, willingly or unwillingly, traded liberty for illusive security in the wake of 9/11.

      • Introduction to Modern Virology

New and powerful techniques such as PCR are explained in detail and their importance in virology demonstrated. The fourth edition will retain its place as the textbook of choice in virology, continuing to relate our current understanding of viral structure and function in relation to disease, and demonstrating how advances in molecular and cell biology and genetics are affecting the study and control of viruses.

Also included is a Guide to Recovery using simple acts of mindfulness to overcome harmful habits in your thinking, actions and choices that are keeping you from having peace. Once you understand you are not crazy, just coping with the deep-seated effects of codependency, you will be free to create the life you were always meant to have.

      • Guiding Principles for Life Beyond Victim Consciousness

        "Guiding Principles for Life Beyond Victim Consciousness" deftly describes how most of us move in and out of what Lynne Forrest calls "victim consciousness," and then provides a set of well-defined tools or "Guiding Principles" which can be used to break free of this limiting mindset. Lynne defines victim consciousness as "the habit of thinking something outside of us is responsible for our happiness or unhappiness." In this remarkably timely and highly significant book, Lynne outlines a step-by-step process for activating what she calls "observer consciousness" which is the antithesis of victim consciousness. In Lynne's own words, "Observer consciousness is a personal state of awareness that allows us to recognize the happenings in our lives as intentional opportunities to further our connection with ourselves and with Source." Lynne is a seasoned professional who has helped and supported her clients through all kinds of life issues: addiction, problematic relationships, spiritual malaise, etc. She uses a unique blend of ideas and methods distilled from the more classic works of Karpman, Byron Katie, Eckhart Tolle, and others, and presents as a result a clear, profound, and easy-to-follow program. These methods are grounded in universal and metaphysical principles. "How we deal with life's challenges, not the challenges themselves, determine whether or not we are in victim consciousness." -Lynne Forrest Read this book if you want to learn to forgive and accept yourself, and if you are ready to experience a degree of harmony between you and your loved ones that you may have never thought possible. "[I met Lynne] and I was introduced to a 'Higher Way'...(I guess that phrase [applies here], 'When you are ready to learn, the teacher will appear...' and Lynne appeared for me. Lynne is a true healer, and my spiritual mentor. Lynne will take you as deep as you are ready to go. She is a...spiritual mystic." -Nancy K. Miller

      • The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl

        "The Worst Hard Time is an epic story of blind hope and endurance almost beyond belief; it is also, as Tim Egan has told it, a riveting tale of bumptious charlatans, conmen, and tricksters, environmental arrogance and hubris, political chicanery, and a ruinous ignorance of nature's ways. Egan has reached across the generations and brought us the people who played out the drama in this devastated land, and uses their voices to tell the story as well as it could ever be told." — Marq de Villiers, author of Water: The Fate of Our Most Precious Resource

        The dust storms that terrorized America's High Plains in the darkest years of the Depression were like nothing ever seen before or since, and the stories of the people that held on have never been fully told. Pulitzer Prize–winning New York Times journalist and author Timothy Egan follows a half-dozen families and their communities through the rise and fall of the region, going from sod homes to new framed houses to huddling in basements with the windows sealed by damp sheets in a futile effort to keep the dust out. He follows their desperate attempts to carry on through blinding black blizzards, crop failure, and the deaths of loved ones. Drawing on the voices of those who stayed and survived—those who, now in their eighties and nineties, will soon carry their memories to the grave—Egan tells a story of endurance and heroism against the backdrop of the Great Depression.

        As only great history can, Egan's book captures the very voice of the times: its grit, pathos, and abiding courage. Combining the human drama of Isaac's Storm with the sweep of The American People in the Great Depression, The Worst Hard Time is a lasting and important work of American history.

        Timothy Egan is a national enterprise reporter for the New York Times. He is the author of four books and the recipient of several awards, including the Pulitzer Prize. He lives in Seattle, Washington.

        “As one who, as a young reporter, survived and reported on the great Dust Bowl disaster, I recommend this book as a dramatic, exciting, and accurate account of that incredible and deadly phenomenon. This is can’t-put-it-down history.” —Walter Cronkite

        "The Worst Hard Time is wonderful: ribbed like surf, and battering us with a national epic that ranks second only to the Revolution and the Civil War. Egan knows this and convincingly claims recognition for his subject—as we as a country finally accomplished, first with Lewis and Clark, and then for 'the greatest generation,' many of whose members of course were also survivors of the hardships of the Great Depression. This is a banner, heartfelt but informative book, full of energy, research, and compassion." —Edward Hoagland, author of Compass Points: How I Lived

        "Here's a terrific true story—who could put it down? Egan humanizes Dust Bowl history by telling the vivid stories of the families who stayed behind. One loves the people and admires Egan's vigor and sympathy." —Annie Dillard, author of Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

        "The American West got lucky when Tim Egan focused his acute powers of observation on its past and present. Egan's remarkable combination of clear analysis and warm empathy anchors his portrait of the women and men who held on to their places—and held on to their souls—through the nearly unimaginable miseries of the Dust Bowl. This book provides the finest mental exercise for people wanting to deepen, broaden, and strengthen their thinking about the relationship of human beings to this earth." —Patricia N. Limerick, author of The Legacy of Conquest: The Unbroken Past of the American West

      • Architects′ Data

        This is an essential aid in the initial design and planning of a project. The relevant building type is located by a comprehensive index and cross reference system, a condensed commentary covers user requireements, planning criteria, basic dimensions and other considerations of function, siting aspect etc. A system of references based on an extensive bibliography supports the text. In every section plans, sections, site layouts, design details and graphs illustrated key aspects of a building type?s design. Most illustrations are dimensioned or scaled - the metric system of measurement is used throughout, and the equivalent in feet/inches can easily be read either off a graphic scale on the page or from the built-in conversion table. The illustrations are international in origin and include both well know and less famous designers. Architects Data is primarily a handbook of building types rather than of construction techniques and details. However its treatment of components (such as doors and windows) and of spaces for building services is extremely thorough, since consideration of this data is an essential element of the planning process. The opening pages of basic data on man and his buildings cover critical subjects such as scale, drawing practice, noise, light and space for the same reason. Particular attention has also been paid to the implications of energy conservation, means of escape from fire and the needs of the elderly and the disabled.

He makes moving tributes to friends and colleagues, including a eulogy for novelist Douglas Adams; he shares correspondence with the evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould; and he visits with the famed paleoanthropologists Richard and Maeve Leakey at their African wildlife preserve. He concludes the essays with a vivid note to his ten-year-old daughter, reminding her to remain curious, to ask questions, and to live the examined life.

      • The Great Pain Deception: Faulty Medical Advice Is Making Us Worse

        "I recommend this book." John E. Sarno, MD

        "I consider this to be the definitive encyclopedia of TMS." Paul Gwozdz, MD

        "There is great wisdom and clarity here. I highly recommend this book and its message." Christiane Northrup, MD

        "Steve has done an excellent job exploring the realm of mindbody medicine, making this an excellent resource for those who are still looking for answers." Marc Sopher, MD

        "This is a really really great book!" Janette Barber

        Recipient of 2 awards in the 2012 International Book Award contest. The Great Pain Deception was awarded Runner-Up Finalist in "Best New Health Book" of 2012 and also honored as Finalist in "Health: Alternative Medicine."

        Back pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, hand and foot pain, rarely come from herniated discs and joint failures. Pain, such as fibromyalgia, is a deception of the mind created by the brain to keep dark, threatening, and sad emotions from entering consciousness. The vast majority of pains and symptoms emanate from a mindbody process stemming from a personality of perfectionism. However, pain is not "in the mind" of the sufferer--and is often misrepresented as such by people who reject a mindbody process for reasons of ego and monetary gain.

        Symptoms inside and outside of the body are primarily the result of emotional conflict hidden within the body and outside of awareness. We live in a world of medical marvels. However, those marvels have become a double-edged sword, often creating more problems than they resolve. John Sarno, MD, at the NYU School of Medicine discovered in the 1970s that back pain was not coming from the things seen on the imaging, such as herniated discs, arthritis, stenosis, scoliosis, etc. Pain was coming from oxygen reduction through the autonomic nervous system due to elevated tension levels, but had been errantly linked to the "normal abnormalities" seen on MRIs and X-rays.

        Most physicians refused to believe his findings even though his success rate in healing the most troublesome of pain-cases was well above theirs. Dr. Sarno labeled the disorder TMS, or tension myoneural syndrome, currently being called The Mindbody Syndrome. Inside The Great Pain Deception Steve tells his compelling story of a 30-year battle with pain and ultimate healing after discovering Dr. Sarno's work. After Steve healed he began receiving hundreds of emails, calls, and letters, asking for his help--too many to respond to, so he decided to write his experience down in a book. After 10 years of research, Steve has conveyed an amazing testimonial of triumph over tragedy, an inspiring story of healing that is a must read if you suffer from any ailment from mild to severe. The only thing standing between good health, and healing, is ego. Pain and unpleasant symptoms serve a purpose. Disease is the report card of how happy we are; feedback of a life not lived. Symptoms are anger flowing over into the physical realm, signs of internal conflict. Pain and illness are the virtual language of the unconscious mind. When we are untrue to ourselves and needs, living by the codes and wishes of others, denying our deepest desires--symptoms then form to reveal the deeper conflict.

        Modern medicine is pointing us toward our bodies in the attempt to cure us through engineering the human system. These high-tech processes are often making us worse by ignoring the message that the body is trying to convey through such things as colitis, irritable bladder, fibromyalgia, skin disorders and an infinite variety of other symptoms, including cancer. This book does an excellent job of exploring the realm of mind within body--and ultimate healing.

      • The Wilderness World of John Muir

        John Muir's extraordinary vision of America comes to life in these fascinating selections from his personal journals.

         

        As a conservationist, John Muir traveled through most of the American wilderness alone and on foot, without a gun or a sleeping bag. In 1903, while on a three-day camping trip with President Theodore Roosevelt, he convinced the president of the importance of a national conservation program, and he is widely recognized for saving the Grand Canyon and Arizona's Petrified Forest. Muir's writing, based on journals he kept throughout his life, gives our generation a picture of an America still wild and unsettled only one hundred years ago. In The Wildernesss World of John Muir Edwin Way Teale has selected the best of Muir's writing from all of his major works—including My First Summer in the Sierra and Travels in Alaska—to provide a singular collection that provides to be "magnificent, thrilling, exciting, breathtaking, and awe-inspiring" (Kirkus Reviews).

      • Listening!

        Listening is a perfect primer for those looking to enhance their personal and business relationships and advance to the next level. The title speaks for itself - we are all capable of hearing what people are saying, but the art-form is in actually listening and understanding what they are saying. Listening is an acquired skill, but with practice it can be mastered. Listening will sharpen important skills such as asking the right questions, and looking for signs like eye contact and body language. Listening explains the value of waiting for the "silent period" at the end of the spoken word, and how to effectively use silence to elicit more information. Listening will teach you to keep your ego in check and not let it get in the way when starting a negotiation with your adversary or a conversation with your spouse or child. Listening will help you to stay in the present and to use all of your senses to deal more effectively with others. It will appeal to both businesspeople and lay people alike who seek to develop better negotiating skills in their dealings in the workplace, with friends and with family. While business and professional interactions are the stepping-stones for financial success, discussions with friends and family are equally, if not more, important. When we improve our personal skills, we enhance every aspect of every encounter - business and personal. Listening teaches us important listening and negotiating skills, and it does so in an easy to read fashion using real life scenarios to enhance every point. By improving upon the skills identified in Listening, we will all learn to be more effective communicators and negotiators.
