This Boy s Life Book Excerpt:

This unforgettable memoir, by one of our most gifted writers, introduces us to the young Toby Wolff, by turns tough and vulnerable, crafty and bumbling, and ultimately winning. Separated by divorce from his father and brother, Toby and his mother are constantly on the move, yet they develop an extraordinarily close, almost telepathic relationship. As Toby fights for identity and self-respect against the unrelenting hostility of a new stepfather, his experiences are at once poignant and comical, and Wolff does a masterful job of re-creating the frustrations and cruelties of adolescence. His various schemes - running away to Alaska, forging checks, and stealing cars - lead eventually to an act of outrageous self-invention that releases him into a new world of possibility.

The Boys Life of Abraham Lincoln Book Excerpt:

Purchase one of 1st World Library's Classic Books and help support our free internet library of downloadable eBooks. Visit us online at www.1stWorldLibrary.ORG - - Abraham Lincoln's forefathers were pioneers - men who left their homes to open up the wilderness and make the way plain for others to follow them. For one hundred and seventy years, ever since the first American Lincoln came from England to Massachusetts in 1638, they had been moving slowly westward as new settlements were made in the forest. They faced solitude, privation, and all the dangers and hardships that beset men who take up their homes where only beasts and wild men have had homes before; but they continued to press steadily forward, though they lost fortune and sometimes even life itself, in their westward progress. Back in Pennsylvania and New Jersey some of the Lincolns had been men of wealth and influence. In Kentucky, where the future President was born on February 12, 1809, his parents lived in deep poverty.

Whitey Book Excerpt:

From the bestselling writers of Black Mass, now a major film, comes the definitive biography of Whitey Bulger – the most brutal modern day mafia boss since Gotti. Drawing on previously classified material, Whitey tells the story of James J. ‘Whitey’ Bulger, the crime boss, psychopath and killer who brought the FBI to its knees. From his childhood on the streets of South Boston and his cell in Alcatraz in the 1950s, to the corrupt pact with the FBI and the fifteen years he hid in plain sight as one of the FBI's Ten Most Wanted, Whitey is the story of corruption, greed and an insatiable hunger for power and control. A sadistic crime boss who liked to get his hands dirty even at the top, this explosive biography creates a portrait of a monster, and one of the most successful organised crime careers of all time.

What Mama Didn t Tell Ya Book Excerpt:

What Mama Didn’t Tell Ya! (Relationship Advice for the Young and Young at Heart) While it is envisioned the main readership will be female, this book will also appeal to a male audience in enabling them to seek guidance as to how to successfully address their own interactions with the world. It is a must read for young girls even before they enter their first relationship, women who are at various stages in the relationship ‘world’ as well as boys and men who are interested in finding out about themselves and their interactions with women. What Mama Didn’t Tell Ya provides advice for young girls through to older women. The advice relates to emotional self-discovery and gaining an understanding of relationships. It is insightful and understands how difficult it is for young people to assimilate their understanding of what is going on in the world as well as with their own emotions. It encourages people to get to know themselves and establish their standards and boundaries in a way that will benefit their future relationships, not only romantic ones, but all relationships. Using straight-talking and uncomplicated language with references from music, poetry and comedy, the book brings the issues to life with examples of actual situations. This book aims to answer important questions and raise issues for people from all ages (above 16), genders, ethnicities, countries and walks of life. It provides a platform by which to gain insight into the interplay between childhood and adulthood, current and possible future relationship issues, personal safety and matters encompassing sexual health and intimacy. What Mama Didn’t Tell Ya reads as a non-judgmental conversation with a friend, imparting knowledge with a witty but dry sense of humour whilst asking the reader to consider their own opinions on topics at particular stages. It does not seek to impose particular views, it rather gives the reader food for thought in how and why they handle relationships in the way they do in order that they can make their own informed choices for their future.

The Wonder of Boys Book Excerpt:

"THE WONDER OF BOYS is a provocative book that electrifies the debate over how this nation raises sons." — USA Today In this insightful and practical book, Michael Gurian describes what boys need to become strong, responsible, sensitive men. Instead of encouraging us to stifle boys' natural propensities for competition and aggression, Gurian offers effective and practical guidelines for channeling them. He shows how the evils boys are susceptible to, including gang activity, sexual misconduct, and crime, become necessary outlets when positive role models and adult support are not available. Most important, Gurian explains what a boy really needs--a primary and an extended family, relationships with mentors, and intense support form his school and community--and details how we can provide these things for the boys we love.
