Understanding Applied Behavior Analysis Second Edition Book Excerpt:

This introductory guide to ABA demystifies the often complex terminology, the underlying principles, and commonly-used procedures of ABA using accessible, everyday language. This revised and updated edition reflects recent developments and introduces new key terms. Albert J. Kearney explains the kinds of learning and reinforcement processes that form the basis of ABA programs. Having covered these essential principles, he describes how the science of behavior analysis can be effectively applied to real life behavior problems. He looks at how behavior is assessed and various intervention techniques that are often employed with children who have autism and other special needs. Having laid these essential foundations, Kearney touches on more advanced topics: the applications of ABA in behavioral education, such as precision teaching and programmed instruction.

Do I Have to Say Hello Aunt Delia s Manners Quiz for Kids and Their Grownups Book Excerpt:

Twenty-five years after its original publication, Do I Have to Say Hello? Aunt Delia’s Manners Quiz for Kids and Their Grown-ups is back, and do we and our kids all need it. In a series of light-hearted multiple choice quizzes, alternate scenarios, and true-or-false questions, Delia Ephron and Edward Koren, the author and illustrator team who brought us the best-selling How to Eat Like a Child, depict a range of possibilities that reflect life as it is as well as life as it ought to be. Covering table manners, car manners, playground manners, school manners, and more, this is a book that is sure to delight (and horrify) adults and children of all ages. Aunt Delia knows what makes the difference between a pleasant and an excruciating visit to a friend’s house in the company of a young child. She knows the proper order in which the following actions take place: (a) Throw up; (b) Get out of the car; (c) Ask Uncle Jerry to pull over. In short, she is practical and basic: she does not get into fish forks, but she knows what to do with bubble gum. She also deals with such things as kindness, sharing, consideration, generosity, and diplomacy. Delia Ephron’s painfully on-target text is complemented by Edward Koren’s hilarious drawings, which–as ever–present us not as we might wish to appear, but as we really are.

The Child Book Excerpt:

“A mother’s love is a magical thing. It was all she had to keep her sane and she clung to it like a life preserver.” Sarah wakes up one morning and doesn’t recognize her own daughter. Emma has developed a voracious appetite along with a penchant for coming home covered in blood. Her little girl isn’t her little girl anymore. Mrs. McGregor is closely acquainted with evil. She recognizes it immediately from her perch next door as neighborhood animals keep going missing. Jess loves her sister, Sarah, and her niece, Emma, with her entire heart and soul. She knows something is different the moment she crosses the threshold into their home. The air is stifling, and the house is weeping with malcontent. From the very marrow of this seemingly innocent house to the surrounding streets, good and evil are locked in an ancient battle of eternal opposition. This is the most important fight of Sarah’s life. At stake is her daughter’s soul. Can the illuminating light of love shine through the dark shroud of pervasive evil or will malevolence endure?

Through guidance he searches himself, his past and his future, for the answers to unlocking what keeps him from the woman in his dreams, Verana. For others, Vesuvius' return to the light is nothing short of a headache or a terror. Haunted by old nightmares and bad memories, there are few Vesuvius can trust, and fewer he can accept as friends. To supporters, it is all up to him to prove that he is no longer a war criminal.

Supergrow Book Excerpt:

Supergrow is a collection of fifteen essays that appeared between 1966 and 1969 in publications such as the American Scholar, the New York Times, Antioch Review, Esquire, and the Saturday Review. Author Benjamin DeMott discusses everything under the sun--music, improving one's sex life, violence in Mississippi, theater, student revolts--but a single theme unifies the material: people ought to use their imaginations more. The book starts from the assumption that our troubles stem from failures of the imagination. Overcome by mass media, we are often too oblivious to fresh and original ideas. As DeMott states, "the right use of the constructive imagination increases the effectiveness of our energies, enables people to anticipate moves and countermoves, prevents them from becoming frozen into postures of intransigence or martyrdom which, though possessing a terrible beauty,' have as their main consequence the stiffening of resistance and the slowing of change." Supergrow is a sociological and political critique of various aspects of everyday life in America, one informed by a powerful moral sensibility and an Emersonian sense of self-reliance. DeMott takes pop culture seriously, but exhibits a refreshing unwillingness to "go with the flow" and get caught up in fashionable intellectual fads. Graced with a new introduction by the author, Supergrow is an insightful work that is not afraid to tackle difficult subject matter. Whether discussing homosexuality, racism, popular music, or child rearing, Supergrow is well-reasoned, perceptive, and entertaining. As DeMott would hope, it will stimulate the imagination. "Devastating, sustained, profoundly witty, resounding."--New York Times Book Review "I didn't think it possible for a long time to come for any writer to say anything about black-and-white relations or lack of them that had freshness and pertinence. I was wrong."--Nat Hentoff, Village Voice Benjamin DeMott is an essayist, novelist, and journalist. He was professor of English at Amherst College, and a consultant and writer for National Educational Television. He is the author of The Body's Cage, Killer Blues: Why Americans Can't Think Straight about Gender and Power, and You Don't Say, available from Transaction.
