Half Truths Youth Leader Guide Book Excerpt:

They are simple phrases. They sound Christian—like something you might find in the Bible. We’ve all heard these words. Maybe we’ve said them. They capture some element of truth, yet they miss the point in important ways. Join Adam Hamilton in this 5-week Bible study to search for the whole truth by comparing common Christian clichés with the wisdom found in Scripture. The clichés include: Everything happens for a reason. God helps those who help themselves. God won’t give you more than you can handle. God said it, I believe it, that settles it. Love the sinner, hate the sin. Contains everything needed to conduct a 5-session study, including discussion questions, activities, and suggestions for organizing and facilitating a group.

Hard Facts Dangerous Half truths and Total Nonsense Book Excerpt:

The best organizations have the best talent. . . Financial incentives drive company performance. . . Firms must change or die. Popular axioms like these drive business decisions every day. Yet too much common management “wisdom” isn’t wise at all—but, instead, flawed knowledge based on “best practices” that are actually poor, incomplete, or outright obsolete. Worse, legions of managers use this dubious knowledge to make decisions that are hazardous to organizational health. This practical and candid book challenges leaders to commit to evidence-based management as a way of organizational life – and shows how to finally turn this common sense into common practice.

Summary of Stephen Denning s The Leader s Guide to Storytelling Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I made a pilgrimage to the International Storytelling Center in Jonesborough, Tennessee, in 1998. I was seeking enlightenment. I had begun to see stories help galvanize an organization around a defined business goal. #2 The story of the Zambia health worker was a simple example of how World Bank staff and managers could envision a different future for the organization. But I began to wonder how the tool of narrative could be used even more effectively. #3 The strength of analysis is that it can cut through the fog of myth, gossip, and speculation to get to the hard facts. However, this strength is also a weakness. Analysis doesn’t offer a route to the heart, and that’s where you must go if you are to motivate people to take action and do so with energy and enthusiasm. #4 I learned that telling the story in a traditional manner, with a beginning, middle, and end, would not be effective with my audience. I wanted them to focus on their own situations, not on Zambia. I decided to tell the story in a minimalistic manner, without detail and texture.

Manual for Survival Book Excerpt:

Governments and journalists tell us that though Chernobyl was "the worst nuclear disaster in history," a reassuringly small number of people died (44), and nature recovered. Yet, drawing on a decade of fine-grained archival research and interviews in Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus, Kate Brown uncovers a much more disturbing story, one in which radioactive isotypes caused hundreds of thousands of casualties. Scores of Soviet scientists, bureaucrats, and civilians documented stunning increases in cases of birth defects, child mortality, cancers, and a multitude of prosaic diseases, which they linked to Chernobyl. Worried that this evidence would blow the lid on the effects of massive radiation release from weapons testing during the Cold War, international scientists and diplomats tried to bury or discredit it. A haunting revelation of how political exigencies shape responses to disaster, Manual for Survival makes clear the irreversible impact on every living thing not just from Chernobyl, but from eight decades of radiation from nuclear energy and weaponry.

Growing Girls Book Excerpt:

In the early years of the twentieth century, Americans began to recognize adolescence as a developmental phase distinct from both childhood and adulthood. This awareness, however, came fraught with anxiety about the debilitating effects of modern life on adolescents of both sexes. For boys, competitive sports as well as "primitive" outdoor activities offered by fledging organizations such as the Boy Scouts would enable them to combat the effeminacy of an overly civilized society. But for girls, the remedy wasn't quite so clear. Surprisingly, the "girl problem"?a crisis caused by the transition from a sheltered, family-centered Victorian childhood to modern adolescence where self-control and a strong democratic spirit were required of reliable citizens?was also solved by way of traditionally masculine, adventurous, outdoor activities, as practiced by the Girl Scouts, the Camp Fire Girls, and many other similar organizations. Susan A. Miller explores these girls' organizations that sprung up in the first half of the twentieth century from a socio-historical perspective, showing how the notions of uniform identity, civic duty, "primitive domesticity," and fitness shaped the formation of the modern girl.
