Now streaming on Netflix and BBC iPlayer! The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars in Gretchen McNeil’s witty and suspenseful novel about four disparate girls who join forces to take revenge on high school bullies and create dangerous enemies for themselves in the process. Perfect for fans of E. Lockhart, Karen M. McManus, and Maureen Johnson. Bree Deringer, Olivia Hayes, Kitty Wei, and Margot Mejia have nothing in common.

The girls have different goals, different friends, and different lives, but they share one very big secret: They’re all members of Don’t Get Mad, a secret society that anonymously takes revenge on the school’s bullies, mean girls, and tyrannical teachers. But when their latest target ends up dead with a blood-soaked “DGM” card in his hands, the girls realize that they’re not as anonymous as they thought—and that someone now wants revenge on them. As the unlikely group searches for the killer, they also uncover secrets and lies that rock their tenuous friendship to the core. Soon the clues are piling up, the police are closing in . . . and everyone has something to lose.

Don t Get Mad Get Even Book Excerpt:

Armed with a guide for motherhood in one hand and adoption papers in the other, Bruce and Linda Pratt welcomed two new sons into their family. All was peaceful, until Linda's army unit recalled her to active duty, leaving Bruce to raise their two sons, Blake and David, on his own. Unfortunately, Bruce was without the vital information from the "Mother's Handbook, " and was forced to use his wits as he went along. Between dressing his sons entirely in the color brown ("chocolate" brown to be precise), and hanging plastic sheeting from the ceiling to spare it from the frequent, unexplained Jell-O explosions, Bruce had his hands full looking after his two energetic boys. Though slightly less conventional than Linda's education in motherhood, Bruce came up with his own unique and somewhat unconventional solutions to everyday problems. Thankfully, Bruce's elderly and somewhat eccentric father was always ready to assist with his eclectic adaptation of common sense and a few alternative tricks stuffed up his sleeves, just in case. Based on (well, almost) true stories, "Don't Get Mad, Get Even" is an amusing glimpse into the world of improvised parenting. Only with love, imagination, and a little duct tape, can parents give children what they need to grow, and become all that God has planned for them.

Definitive account of the 2001-2004 New England Patriots. Analyzes "success factors" responsible for three Super Bowl victories in four seasons. Entertains with humorous, insightful quotations from players, coaches, executives and owners. Essential reading for fans of Bill Belichick's Patriots and anyone seeking to build a great organization. * "Lavin makes a strong... case that the Patriots 'are a better organization than they are a team.'" (Richard Sandomir, New York Times, Jan. 22, 2005) * "Whether you're a New England fan or not, you'll be fascinated by [this] intriguing new book." (John McClain, Houston Chronicle, Jan. 30, 2005) * "Lavin has melded together fascinating quotes, statistics, and revelations that keep the reader entranced throughout the 350-page tome. A wonderful opportunity to [meet] the players, characters, and team... Lavin's remarkable story provides the recipe for championship stew." (Christopher Young, Boston Phoenix, Jan. 31, 2005) * "Fascinating." (Dave Perkins, Toronto Star, Feb. 5, 2005) * "An impressive look at what drives the team's success... It doesn't read like some wonkish, academic text." (Greg Gatlin, Boston Herald, Feb. 6, 2005) * "Timely, insightful book."

Having read and enjoyed other football-as-a-metaphor-for-life books such as The Packer Way by Ron Wolf, Winning the NFL Way by Bob LaMonte... and Think Like A Champion by Mike Shanahan, I can say that Management Secrets of the New England Patriots is as comprehensive and well-written a book as you can find on this subject. ...It was his intention to merge his studies of high-performance organizations and his obsession with his favorite team. This he has done most admirably." (Doug Farrar, Yahoo! Sports, Dec. 31, 2005) * "Intriguing and exhaustingly researched, Management Secrets of the New England Patriots succeeds at going beyond the headlines into the inner workings of the Kraft/Belichick aura. ...Much more than a look at the Patriots business acumen. Liberally infused with recollections from players, staff and opponents, Secrets will score in resounding fashion with fans of the three-time champions." (Ken Castro, Patriots Insider, Mar. 24, 2005) * "Fascinating read... Gives you a real insight into what goes on in making this franchise what they are. ...I really recommend it." (Ed Berliner, Comcast TV's Sports Pulse, Feb. 28, 2005) * "It's a fascinating read, and I'm sure every general manager and owner in the National Football League has rushed out to get it." (Jack Arute, Sirius Satellite Radio's NFL Rewind, May 8, 2005) * "Must Read... If the word 'management' in the title scares you or makes you think 'academic,' please take another look... A great read." (Stan Jaksina, PatsFans.com, May 30,2005) * "A stunning compendium on the Patriot Way." (Bob George, PatsFans.com, June 12, 2005)

Emotion Concepts Book Excerpt:

This chapter briefly describes the general goals of the book, introduces the most fundamental features of the methodology that is employed to achieve these goals, and gives an outline of the structure of the book. A more detailed account of the goals and methodology is presented in chapters 2 and 3, respectively. What the Book Is About The main objective of this study is to attempt to answer the question: How do people understand their emotions? As we shall see in the next chapter, a large number of scholars have tried to provide answers to this question. The interest in the way people understand their emotions has led scholars to the issue of the nature of emotion concepts and emotional meaning. Since the notion of understanding involves or presupposes the notions of concept and meaning, it was only natural for scholars with an interest in the way people understand their emotions to tum their attention to emo tion concepts and the meaning associated with emotion terms. So the broader issue has often become more specific. For example, Davitz in his The Language of Emotion formulated the central question in the following way: "What does a person mean when he says someone is happy or angry or sad?" (Davitz 1969: 1).

Metaphors of Anger Pride and Love Book Excerpt:

This study is an attempt to uncover the structure of three emotion concepts: anger, pride and love. The results indicate that the conceptual structure associated with these emotions consists of four parts: (1) a system of metaphors, (2) a system of metonymies, (3) a system of related concepts, and (4) a category of cognitive models, with a prototypical model in the center. This goes against an influential view of the structure of concepts in linguistics, psychology, anthropology, according to which the structure of a concept can be represented by a small number of sense components.
