Description : Obsessively-detailed, and very funny, instructions on nearly everything in life you are very possibly doing all wrong. Help is here! From how to eat an ice-cream cone to developing "principles" when you have none, the author's mission is to elevate, and ennoble, those fleeting instincts we all harbor to get our lives in order. "Hills is preoccupied primarily with the little things," Nora Ephron wrote in the New York Times"and he writes about them deliciously." This volume includes three titles previously published individually: How To Do Things Right, How to Retire at 41, and How to Be Good. They have been edited, revised and combined into one volume and the contents will have you laughing out loud, thinking hard, and at least temporarily rearranging your frazzled life. Hills is wise, witty, and very, very funny. But behind the humor, Hills remains a deeply sage and serious writer. This is his best advice, from years of experience, served up from the heart of one of the most charming humorists to grace the American scene.

Description : Joe came out of prison a changed man. There would be no more drugs and no more crime. He had lived precariously all his adult life, but he hoped to leave all that behind. He was starting over. Joe found his way to his grandfather's house in a small town. He faced his challenges head on, but there was one memory he couldn't shake. Coming out of prison, Joe discovered that he had a two-year-old son. Little Stevie was thriving with parents who loved him, and Joe wouldn't interfere. Long ago, he'd decided to never have kids. No sweet little kid deserved a dad like him. Joe went to church and joined a men's Bible study. Many of the people he met there reminded him about-but more importantly, showed him-God's love and grace. Compelled by this truth, Joe gave his life to Christ, and God began to use him. But then tragedy struck. After picking up the newspaper at the coffee shop, Joe shouted out in anguish at what he had read. His mind was numb. His heart was broken. What could he do? Joe didn't understand, but soon he would stand amazed as he watched God's plan unfold.

Description : This book is dedicated to good teachers everywhere. Human nature dictates that from time to time, even the best of teachers may make mistakes. When they are made aware of such aberrations, good teachers will recognize and repair them. They will, at a moments notice, set things right with their students. Bad teachers will refuse to acknowledge blunders and will engage in cover ups. Parents and caregivers need to be mindful that they may run into bad teachers anywhere, in any time period, who may be guilty of the same sins. Of necessity then, in defense of their children, parents and caregivers must be the watch dogs, the whistle blowers, and the prime movers for bringing about meaningful change. In her book, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, Amy Chua has set forth seven driving principals by which she governed her children. Her fifth rule is ... (5) if your child ever disagrees with a teacher or coach, you must always take the side of the teacher or coach; ..." [Chua A. (2011). New York, NY: PENGUIN BOOKS, P. 5.] My advice states the contrary, and I offer convincing, concrete examples as to why you should Never Trust a Teacher! Remember to FLIP the book over to find Twenty--Two Timeless Tips to Trump the System. Before being critical of teachers, parents must prepare their children to be ideal students when they arrive at school. In this supplement to the larger book, I offer fundamental guidelines for parents and caregivers as they begin their childrearing years and gradually ease their children into the world of public school, always remembering that Literacy and Love Go Hand in Hand.

Description : A How-To Guide for the Modern Leader Inspired by Peter Drucker's groundbreaking book The Effective Executive, Laura Stack details precisely how 21st-century leaders and managers can obtain profitable, productive results by managing the intersection of two critical values: effectiveness and efficiency. Effectiveness, Stack says, is identifying and achieving the best objectives for your organization—doing the right things. Efficiency is accomplishing them with the least amount of time, effort, and cost—doing things right. If you're not clear on both, you're wasting your time. As Drucker put it, “There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.” Stack's 3T Leadership offers twelve practices that will enable executives to be effective and efficient, grouped into three areas where leaders spend their time: Strategic Thinking, Teamwork, and Tactics. With her expert advice, you'll get scores of new ideas on how you, your team, and your organization can boost productivity.

Description : We should all have a right standing with God, which means that we should have his righteousness as Christians. I know that in this world it is a difficult situation and a challenge each day to do the right thing for God because of where you may be, like work, church, school, or even at home when you have friends over. As Christians, doing what is right in the eyes of God is done all the time no matter where we are. Doing it God's way is the best way to doing things, and we would be blessed when we do it. As real Christians or children of the Most High God, we are to do the right thing, and we would be able to see and feel that it is the right thing to do, to help others that are in need, help people to see the truth, to read his Word, showing all that we are walking in his light and staying out of the dark of this world. The earthly life of Jesus is described as being led or filled with the Holy Spirit. We also must do as he did. God loves you and offers a wonderful plan for your life. Find your relationship with God. Learn how to do what is right by following Jesus Christ in all that he did. Learn from his truth, learn to hear his voice. Know his spiritual principles. Believe in God, and he will.

Description : This illuminating study critiques the concept of leadership as understood in the last 75 years and looks to the twenty-first century for a reconstructed understanding of leadership in the postindustrial era. More similarities in past decades were found than had been thought; the thread throughout Rost's book is that leadership was conceived of as good management. He develops a new definition and paradigm for leadership in this volume that distinguishes leadership from management in fundamental ways. The ethics of leadership from a postindustrial perspective completes the paradigm. The book concludes with suggestions that can be immediately utilized in helping to transform our understanding of leadership.

Description : A celebration of good craftsmanship by a Norwegian master carpenter - the anatomy of a job well done. "An enriching and poetic tribute to manual labour" Karl Ove Knausgård "In Thorstensen's skilled hands, the everyday story of a suburban loft conversion is turned into an urgent study on the value of doing good work. It should be widely read." Robert Penn - author of The Man Who Made Things Out of Trees This is, quite simply, the story of a loft conversion. It is also a book about work and identity, about collaboration and pride in skilled craftsmanship, and about what it means to make things with your hands in a consumerism-driven world. A master carpenter and builder with thirty years' experience, Thorstensen gives a matter-of-fact, reflective voice to the workers who construct our living spaces and our urban environment. He looks upon his tools as an important part of himself and as a reflection of his respect for his trade, and he addresses the gulf in understanding and communication between skilled craftsmen and "academic" workers. From the moment of a client's phone call to their occupation of a newly constructed living space, Making Things Right tracks the project as it takes shape: the delicate negotiation to establish an optimum plan; the collaboration with a trusted team of specialist painters, plasterers, plumbers, electricians; the handling of materials; the blood, sweat and frustration involved in doing a job well. Why is it that manual skills are underestimated? After all, working with your hands gives you time to think. With all its practical detail, Making Things Right is the simple philosophy of a working life. Will interest readers of The Craftsman by Richard Sennett: Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain; The Man Who Made Things Out of Trees by Robert Penn; Do No Harm by James Marsh and A Shepherd's Life by James Rebanks Translated from the Norwegian by Sean Kinsella

Description : Winner, Susan W. Stinson Book Award for Dance Education—University of North Carolina Greensboro Winner, Ruth Lovell Murray Book Award—National Dance Education Organization “Original and groundbreaking…. This is a pivotal text to propel dance education beyond the status quo tenants of ‘best practices.’…This text may well be the driver moving personal, value-based pedagogies beyond methods-based instruction. An exciting read and an honest journey in meaningful decision making.”—Susan Kirchner, Towson University The first of its kind, this volume presents research-based fictionalized case studies from experts in the field of dance education, examining theory and practice developed from real-world scenarios that call for ethical decision-making. Dilemmas faced by dance educators in the studio, on stage, in recreation centers and correctional facilities, and on social media are explored, accompanied by activities for humanizing dance pedagogy. These challenges converge from educational policies and mandates developed over the past two decades, including teacher-proof “scripted” curriculum, high-stakes testing, standardization, and methods-centered teacher preparation; difficulties are often perpetuated by those who want to make change happen but do not know how.

Description : The United States is more racially, culturally, and linguistically diverse now than at any given point in its history. Urbanization and immigration are key contributors to population growth and shifts, particularly in the southeastern part of the country. Educators are scrambling to determine how best to serve different demographics, and many families in new places are trying to adjust to unfamiliar school systems. For all concerned, this period of adjustment is marked by significant personal, curricular, and institutional development. However, one group of individuals has not maintained pace with the rest: African American males continue to lag behind their counterparts in every measured educational variable as outlined by the No Child Left Behind legislation, despite the educational, social, and economic changes of the past fifty years (since the 1954 landmark Brown vs. Board of Education decision). This book - beyond providing educators, parents, and students with a critique of present day educational experiences for those who are the «other» in America, particularly the black male - conceptually integrates queer legal theory, the tenets of critical spirituality, and notions of collaborative activism to construct a blueprint for realizing academic achievement and academic success for all students.

Couples, who ignore problems in their marriage, end their relationship in divorce. The Almighty is not a God of enmity and separation but a God of love and Unity. The Will of God for every man and woman is to have a winning marriage. This book has been specially designed to make that happen; it covers issues affecting marriages and how to deal with them. It comes with lots of advice that will help you build a fantastic matrimonial home. It will teach you what love is and when to know that someone is the right one for you.

Description : A unique work on the underlying ontology, cosmology, and moral philosophy of the Yijing. In The Primary Way, the distinguished scholar of Chinese philosophy Chung-ying Cheng synthesizes his lifetime of work on the Yijing, also known as the I Ching or Book of Changes. Cheng offers a systematic engagement with the classic Chinese text as a philosophy that is still valuable and relevant today. In contemporary philosophical terms, Cheng has developed the ontological hermeneutics of the Yijing as well as its philosophical methodology of symbolic reference in a holistic and onto-generative system of trigrams and hexagrams. The book is organized around eight themes that illuminate Cheng’s interpretation of the Yijing as a philosophy for creative human action and transformation. He demonstrates how the philosophy of change in the Yijing embodies early Chinese ontology, cosmology, epistemology, and virtue ethics in the interpretation of divinatory judgments. Cheng’s work shows how the philosophy of change contains a vision of humanity as creatively related to heaven and earth, and how it gives positive meaning to any change as part of a ceaseless creativity. With this understanding, it enables humanity to develop its potential as a partner of heaven and earth. Chung-ying Cheng is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Hawai‘i. His many books include New Dimensions of Confucian and Neo-Confucian Philosophy, also published by SUNY Press.

Description : How do we live well? The first sentence of Grace and Gravity raises the fundamental question that constantly occupies our minds-and of all those who lived before us. Paradoxically, the impossibility of answering this question opens up the very room needed to find ways of living well. It is the gap where all disciplines fall short, where architecture does not fit its inhabitants, where economy is not based on shortage, where religion cannot be explained by its followers, and where technology works far beyond its own principles. According to Lars Spuybroek, the prize-winning former architect, this marks the point where the “paradoxical machine” of grace reveals its powers, a point where we “cannot say if we are moving or being moved”. Following the trail of grace leads him to a new form of analysis that transcends the age-old opposition between appearances and technology. Linking up a dazzling and often delightful variety of sources-monkeys, paintings, lamp posts, octopuses, tattoos, bleeding fingers, rose windows, robots, smart phones, spirits, saints, and fossils-with profound meditations on living, death, consciousness, and existence, Grace and Gravity offers an eye-opening provocation to a wide range of art historians, architects, theologians, anthropologists, artists, media theorists and philosophers.
