The Council of Dads Book Excerpt:

Facing his own mortality, bestselling author Bruce Feiler decided to ask six men -- a COUNCIL OF DADS -- to play various roles in his daughters's lives, representing the different aspects of their father that they knew best. Here is the moving story of Feiler's illness and recovery -- and the men who promised to be him. When bestselling author Bruce Feiler was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in his leg, he could only imagine all the walks he might not take with his daughters, the ballet recitals he would miss, the art projects left undone, and the aisles he might not walk down. Though his daughters would have plenty of resources in their lives, they wouldn't have their Dad. He decided to write to six men who had been with him throughout his life- men who could become his voice and his daughters' Council of Dads. "Will you listen in on them?" he wrote. "Will you take them out to lunch every now and then? Will you go to a soccer game if you're in town? When they get older, will you indulge them in a new pair of shoes? As time passes, will you invite them to a family gathering on occasion. Will you introduce them to somebody who might help one of their dreams come true?" THE COUNCIL OF DADS is the intimate story of Feiler's illness but it is also about the people who touched and shaped his life, and what it means to be truly known. But this is not just a document of one life that has been to the edge -- rather it is a blueprint for how others can take Feiler's experience and deepen their relationships with their own friends and leave behind a treasured legacy for their children.

Creative Integrative Medicine Book Excerpt:

A family tragedy—the loss of his youngest brother at age eighteen from an osteosarcoma of the skull—triggered Dr. Drouin’s interest in studying medicine. Unsatisfied with the model of healing he encountered in medical school, he explored many other models of medicine that eventually led him to practice what is now called integrative medicine. He soon realized that for these complementary medicines to be accepted and integrated into our health care system, they must be scientifically recognized and become part of the curriculum in medical schools. The entire foundation of our approach to health and disease must be redefined through a deeper understanding of reality as described by quantum physics. Dr. Drouin’s initial quest has evolved into the creation of a medical and natural medicine curriculum that embraces this new paradigm of healing and the foundation of the International Quantum University for Integrative Medicine (Quantum University). The cost of an incomplete model of understanding in medicine has enormous consequences in the management of chronic and mind-related disease. Creative integrative medicine addresses the real questions and offers a solution to the present crisis in health care. “Dr. Paul Drouin is a true hero for writing this long overdue book. Finally, people are being told the truth about health, healing, and alternative treatments. This book has sound scientific proof to empower you back to true ‘health’ care instead of ‘sick’ care. Read and learn.” —Joe Dispenza, DC, New York Times best-selling author of You Are the Placebo and Evolve Your Brain

Four huge disasters, Three months of tourists, Two gorgeous boys, And a partridge in a palm tree In this lighthearted beach read about family, friendship, and fa-la-la, it's up to lovestruck teen Darby to save the spirit of a Southern town called Christmas. Christmas, Kentucky, is a summer tourist destination known for its holiday-themed shops, ornament-sprouting potted palms, giant Snow Globe display, and cheerful residents—including the mayor's daughter, fifteen-year-old Darby Peacher. But as Darby stumbles her way into a job at the town's run-down amusement park, Holly Jolly Land, her summer quickly goes from merry to miserable: the boy of Christmas present is absent, a boy of Christmas past is her supervisor, and the town seems to be losing its cheer as it strives to become more commercial. As she tries to sort out her love life, Darby grows positively Scroogey until she gets wrapped up in reinventing Holly Jolly Land—and the town—as the wonderlands they once were. Tiffany Stewart's debut novel Holly Jolly Summer is brimming with humor, heart, and a sprinkling of summer romance.

Author Bruce Feiler was a young father when he was diagnosed with cancer. He instantly worried what his daughters' lives would be like without him. "Would they wonder who I was? Would they yearn for my approval, my love, my voice?" Three days later he came up with a stirring idea: he would reach out to six men from all the passages in his life, and ask them to be present in the passages in his daughters' lives. And he would call this group "The Council of Dads." "I believe my daughters will have plenty of opportunities," he wrote to these men. "They'll have loving families, but they may not have their dad. Will you help be their dad?" This is the inspiring story of what happened next, the work of a master storyteller confronting the most difficult experience of his life and emerging with wisdom and hope.--From publisher description.

Transmasculinity on Television Book Excerpt:

This book explores how television and streaming services portray transgender characters who identify as male or nonbinary in television media. Transmasculinity on Television takes a closer look at transmasculine and nonbinary characters on broadcast, cable, and streaming services between 2000 and 2021. Significant changes have occurred since the release of the 1999 film Boys Don’t Cry, and in particular through the increase in transgender producers, writers, and actors playing those roles. While a great deal of research has been published on gay, lesbian, and female transgender characters, very little analysis has been done on trans male representation in American media. This book examines the history of how film and television have portrayed transgender characters, how these depictions have developed over time and what impact these representations may have on audience attitudes. This accessible and engaging study is suitable for students and scholars in Gender Studies, Media Studies and LGBTQ Studies.

Finley Ball Book Excerpt:

This is the story of a losing baseball team that became a 1970s dynasty, thanks to the unorthodox strategies and stunts of two very colorful men. When Charlie Finley bought the A's in 1960, he was an outsider to the game—a insurance businessman with a larger-than-life personality. He brought his cousin Carl on as his right-hand man, moved the team from Kansas City to Oakland, and pioneered a new way to put together a winning team. With legendary players like Reggie Jackson, Catfish Hunter, and Vida Blue, the Finleys' Oakland A's won three straight World Series and riveted the nation. Now Carl Finley's daughter Nancy reveals the whole story behind her family's winning legacy—how her father and uncle developed their scouting strategy, why they employed odd gimmicks like orange baseballs and "mustache bonuses," and how the success of the '70s Oakland A's changed the game of baseball.

In this thrilling sci-fi adventure, epic danger and impossible odds are no match for one girl's courage! Twelve-year-old Hope lives in White Rock, a town of inventors struggling to recover from World War III. But adventurous Hope is terrible at inventing. She would much rather sneak off to cliff dive into the Bomb’s Breath, the deadly band of air that surrounds the town. When bandits invade White Rock to steal its greatest invention—priceless antibiotics—the town is left with a heartbreaking choice: hand over the medicine and die from disease, or die fighting the bandits. Help lies in a neighboring town, but the bandits count everyone fourteen and older each hour. Now Hope and her friends Aaren and Brock are only ones who can escape through the Bomb’s Breath. For once, the daring and rebelliousness that usually get Hope into trouble might just save them all.
