A brand new child in 5 easy steps Book Excerpt:

If you are struggling with your children and want to be a better parent, A Brand New Child in 5 Easy Steps is the book for you. It is inspired by the amazing, child-transforming results which South Africa's 'Super Granny' Andalene Salvesen has gained from her home visits around the world, and shows that your child only changes when you become an empowered parent. Children are not born with boundaries and parents are often ill-equipped to enforce appropriate house rules. A Brand New Child in 5 Easy Steps will help parents to regain their authority so that children can once again just be children. It guides parents to choose creative ideas for discipline thereby eliminating today's epidemic of shouting and guilt-based parenting. Andalene covers all the childhood phases, from tots to teens, dealing with appropriate consequences for anything from tantrums to silent defiance. Andelene's five easy steps will empower every parent to achieve the desired results with their children. Parents will easily relate to Andalene's descriptions of her home visits - often humorous, sometimes emotional - and the problems she encounters in different homes. Parenting can be an exciting journey, and A Brand New Child in 5 Easy Steps is an excellent start to moving your family into a healthier, happier and more empowered direction.

Bond Daddy Book Excerpt:

The lure of fast money pulls Aaron and Jack into a world driven by high-pressure commission sales where morals and ethics take a backseat to big paydays. Best friends since high school, Aaron and Jack are hired by a brokerage firm that begins the strict training of each broker before they are licensed. Surviving the firm's grueling interview process, harsh cold-calling and aggressive tactics, each takes a different path in an attempt to endure the shark-infested trading floor. Aaron's natural aptitude with people gives him quick success; however, Jack’s first sale eludes him for months—causing marital problems and pushing him to the brink of depression. But as the friends turn into big producers, the firm's partners do more than just take them from the poor house to fancy cars. Aaron and Jack are introduced to a hedonistic lifestyle filled with wild adventures and seedy relationships riddled with dangerous vices. Inspired by actual events from a 1970s Houston, Texas, boiler room operation, Bond Daddy chronicles the successes, excesses, and failures of men pushed to their limits who end up secretly living abroad, wasting away in prison or mysteriously murdered.

Stephen Spender Book Excerpt:

One of the leading poets and cultural icons of the 20th century, Stephen Spender was a prominent writer, literary critic, and social commentator--and close friend of some of the best-know creative talents of his day. Now, in this penetrating biography, John Sutherland paints a vivid portrait of Spender and of the glittering literary world of which he was a part, drawing on exclusive access to Spender's private papers. This briskly paced, compelling narrative illuminates the vast range of Spender's literary, political, and artistic interests. We follow Spender from childhood to his days at Oxford (where he first became friends with W.H. Auden, Christopher Isherwood, and Isaiah Berlin); to his meteoric rise as poet in the 1930s, while still in his twenties; to his later years as cultural statesman, at home in both Britain and America. We witness many of the century's defining moments through Spender's eyes: the Spanish Civil War, World War II, the Cold War, the 1960s sexual revolution, and the rise of America as a cultural force. And along the way, we are introduced to many of Spender's accomplished friends, including Dylan Thomas, Sylvia Plath, Cecil Day-Lewis, Joseph Brodsky, Lucian Freud, George Orwell, Virginia Woolf, and T.S. Eliot. Perhaps most important, Sutherland has been granted exclusive access to Spender's private papers by his wife Natasha Spender. Thus he is able to provide a far more intimate look at the poet's personal life than has appeared in previous biographies. Featuring 36 unpublished photographs, Stephen Spender: A Literary Life throws light not only on this supremely gifted writer, but also on the literary and social history of the twentieth century.

Mama Day Book Excerpt:

A “wonderful novel” steeped in the folklore of the South from the New York Times–bestselling author of The Women of Brewster Place (The Washington Post Book World). On an island off the coast of Georgia, there’s a place where superstition is more potent than any trappings of the modern world. In Willow Springs, the formidable Mama Day uses her powers to heal. But her great niece, Cocoa, can’t wait to get away. In New York City, Cocoa meets George. They fall in love and marry quickly. But when she finally brings him home to Willow Springs, the island’s darker forces come into play. As their connection is challenged, Cocoa and George must rely on Mama Day’s mysticism. Told from multiple perspectives, Mama Day is equal parts star-crossed love story, generational saga, and exploration of the supernatural. Hailed as Gloria Naylor’s “richest and most complex” novel, it is the kind of book that stays with you long after the final page (Providence Journal).

To Be Worthy Book Excerpt:

The characters in this story are the same boys featured in THE ROCK. Both boys are now twelve, one beginning, and one finishing his journey through the most wonderful and fearful year of their lives. A twelve-year-old boy is a riddle. He isn’t a little kid, but he isn’t a big kid either. He is a mixture; partly adult; partly big kid; and partly little kid. This story centers on the problem of worthiness as experienced by the twelve-year-old—self worth. This is a problem for many boys because they are on their way toward being men, and are expected to be big, tough, and fearless. In reality, boys this age are about two years behind their female counterparts in many respects; physical size, sexual and emotional maturity. For example, seventh grade girls do most things, even boy things, better than boys. Yet, boys vainly suppress their feelings and emotions to try to prove themselves as "men." Fears of unworthiness tormented Dennis. Throughout his life, Dennis's pride and ego were reinforced by caring for a younger, neighbor boy who suffered from several physical and emotional problems. This made Dennis feel important and needed. The desire to be needed was so intense within Dennis that when his friend grew out of his problems and moved away, his life became empty. His very reason for existence had been taken away. As he visits his best friend, Dennis finds himself in the midst of a real family tragedy, even facing death, and learns that he doesn't have to do "adult things" to be respected and to be happy with himself. This story is also about the McDougalls, a close, old-fashioned family with a deep, evangelical, religious faith. The characters in WORTHY run headlong into this life-changing faith as events unfold throughout the story.

Full Circle on the Mountain Book Excerpt:

Do you believe a personal destiny exists for each of us? If it were possible to catch a glimpse of that destiny, would you have the courage, faith and strength of heart to follow it? What would be the cost, and what would have to be lain on the altar of sacrifice? FULL CIRCLE on the MOUNTAIN answers those questions with a powerful and insightful journey into one woman’s personal destiny. Claudette Elizabeth McAllister grew up a young woman, in rural South Carolina in the fifties, the daughter of a farmer and his bakery shop attendant wife. She was an ordinary girl, with ordinary dreams of going to college and pursuing a career in accounting. Destiny, however, used those dreams to choose another path for her. A presumed "chance meeting" with handsome, educated, and wealthy, Johnny Richardson would change her life and set her on a course with destiny which would not rest until she came full circle with it some twenty years later. In the early sixties, fate, in disguise as a life-threatening experience drives her back to her hometown. There she must face the reality of a son born out of wedlock, the tragic accident that killed her best friend and the realization that her life was somehow being orchestrated by forces beyond her control. Forces that continually required her to sacrifice and endure what seemed impossible for the human spirit. FULL CIRCLE on the MOUNTAIN is a journey along her path of people, places and events which would not only direct and shape her destiny, but weave its threads deeply into an entire family, unaware they too were a part of the great tapestry of this simple woman. " A rare and powerful combination of: entertainment, insight, wisdom and truth." Henri Forget, free-lance editor.

Psychology Concepts and Applications Book Excerpt:

PSYCHOLOGY: CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS, Fourth Edition, offers a concept-based approach supported by a unique pedagogical framework. Author Jeff Nevid provides a broad view of psychology that includes history, major theories, research methods, and important research findings as well as applications of contemporary research to the problems and challenges faced in everyday life. Nevid developed the effective teaching devices in this text based on a comprehensive system derived from research on learning and memory as well as his own research on textbook pedagogy. The text's successful modular format organizes each chapter into manageable instructional units that help students focus on one topic at a time within the context of a larger chapter structure. The material also incorporates four goals that Nevid refers to as the Four E's of Effective Learning: Engaging Student Interest, Encoding Information, Elaborating Meaning, and Evaluating Progress. In the Fourth Edition, Nevid employs a new IDEA Model of Course Assessment--unique to this text--which maps specific learning goals (tied to APA goals) to measurable skills students acquire in their first exposure to psychology. Executed throughout each chapter, the model presents learning objectives that are expressed in the form of active learning verbs, and linked to measurable learning outcomes. The model is integrated with the test-item file, making it easy for instructors to select items measuring these particular outcomes.
