Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Enter an adrenaline-laced epic where dreams and reality collide. Fleeing his assailants through deserted alleyways, Thomas Hunter narrowly escapes to the roof of a building. Then a silent bullet from the night clips his head...and his world goes black. From the blackness comes an amazing reality of another world-a world where evil is contained. A world where Thomas Hunter is in love with a beautiful woman. Then he remembers the dream of the chase as he reaches to touch the blood on his head. Where does the dream end and reality begin? Every time he falls asleep in one world, he awakes in the other-both facing catastrophic disaster. Thomas is being pushed beyond his limits...even beyond the limits of space and time. Black is an incredible story of evil and rescue, betrayal and love, pursuit and death, and a terrorist's threat unlike anything the human race has ever known. Some say the world hangs in the balance of every choice we make. Now the fate of two worlds hangs in the balance of one man's choice.

Memoirs of a Geisha

Product : Memoirs of a Geisha
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this literary tour de force, novelist Arthur Golden enters a remote and shimmeringly exotic world. For the protagonist of this peerlessly observant first novel is Sayuri, one of Japan's most celebrated geisha, a woman who is both performer and courtesan, slave and goddess. We follow Sayuri from her childhood in an impoverished fishing village, where in 1929, she is sold to a representative of a geisha house, who is drawn by the child's unusual blue-grey eyes. From there she is taken to Gion, the pleasure district of Kyoto. She is nine years old. In the years that follow, as she works to pay back the price of her purchase, Sayuri will be schooled in music and dance, learn to apply the geisha's elaborate makeup, wear elaborate kimono, and care for a coiffure so fragile that it requires a special pillow. She will also acquire a magnanimous tutor and a venomous rival. Surviving the intrigues of her trade and the upheavals of war, the resourceful Sayuri is a romantic heroine on the order of Jane Eyre and Scarlett O'Hara. And "Memoirs of a Geisha" is a triumphant work - suspenseful, and utterly persuasive. "From the Trade Paperback edition."

Product : Take Your Best Shot: Do Something Bigger Than Yourself
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Discover how you can respond to God's call in your own life, whether it's in your own town or on the other side of the world. Teen Austin Gutwein has taken his best shot several thousand times to help AIDS orphans in Africa and in the process has built a school and a medical clinic "Take Your Best Shot" tells how one boy made an incredible difference in the lives of those without hope while challenging the reader to do the same. The interactive dialogue will leave space for the reader to respond. By the end of the book, the reader will know the testimony of Austin and other teens from around the world who are committed to a life of sharing Christ's love, and will have begun to search for God's voice in their own lives. The book will also equip and challenge readers with information on a variety of ministries and organizations around the world to help people, animals, and the environment. "Austin is an outstanding young man He inspires us to dream bigger, reach higher and love deeper. His story deserves a wide hearing." Max Lucado "I am very impressed with Austin Gutwein's story in "Take Your Best Shot." This book is filled with words of encouragement, inspiration, and hope. It's guaranteed to motivate you into action." Pat Williams, Senior Vice President, Orlando Magic "I spent a day with Austin and his family and found them inspiring. His story, I believe, challenges us all. The first thing I thought as I drove to the airport was: What was I doing when I was twelve? And then, of course, the next thought: What, exactly, am I doing now?" John Larson, Former NBC National Correspondent "When people ask me how they can possibly make a difference fighting a problem as big as 'global poverty', I tell them about a boy named Austin who, like David, stared Goliath in the eye without flinching. This young man has done more to make a difference in the lives of children orphaned by AIDS than most American churches, let alone individuals. If you are older than 10 and you haven't yet done your part to change the world, read "Take Your Best Shot" and be inspired. Austin Gutwein shows us the way." Richard Stearns, President, World Vision US, Author of The Hole in Our Gospel "When people ask who has most impacted me over the last year, without hesitation I can say Austin Gutwein and the story of Hoops of Hope. I am around amazing leaders all the time, and Austin rivals all of them. Austin is my friend. And Austin is one of my heroes. You can't be around Austin or the amazing work of Hoops of Hope without being deeply impacted and inspired. Trust me. Do yourself a favor and read this book and the incredible story. But once you do, be prepared to be changed and challenged. You'll see the world and your significant role in helping those less fortunate in an amazingly fresh way."

Falling Man

Product : Falling Man
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : There is September 11 and then there are the days after, and finally the years. "Falling Man" is a magnificent, essential novel about the event that defines turn-of-the-century America. It begins in the smoke and ash of the burning towers and tracks the aftermath of this global tremor in the intimate lives of a few people. First there is Keith, walking out of the rubble into a life that he'd always imagined belonged to everyone but him. Then Lianne, his es-tranged wife, memory-haunted, trying to reconcile two versions of the same shadowy man. And their small son Justin, standing at the window, scanning the sky for more planes. These are lives choreographed by loss, grief and the enormous force of history. Brave and brilliant, "Falling Man" traces the way the events of September 11 have reconfigured our emotional landscape, our memory and our perception of the world. It is cathartic, beautiful, heartbreaking.

Bonding with Your Teen Through Boundaries

Product : Bonding with Your Teen Through Boundaries
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A counselor teaches parents practical ways to lovingly provide boundaries in four critical areas of their teen's life, resulting in bonding and deeper respect in the relationship. We provide our children with boundaries because we want to keep them safe and we want to teach them to make good decisions. While the boundaries themselves may change as our children grow older, the need for them does not. Parents need advice to navigate complex and difficult scenarios that may arise with their teen. June Hunt and Jody Capehart provide such advice in Bonding with Your Teen through Boundaries. Drawing on biblical principles, they show parents how to provide appropriate boundaries in four critical areas of a teen's life: at home, at school, and in their personal and social lives. Each chapter opens with a real-life scenario followed by concrete advice on what to say and what disciplinary action, if any, to take with your teen. Practical and realistic in its tone, the book continually shows how discipline and boundaries are helpful catalysts for healthy bonding. This thoroughly revised and updated edition of Bonding with Your Teen includes new material that addresses the ever-increasing impact of technology on teenagers.

It's the bones of missing children, however, that disturb her, and lately she's had more than her share of them. Someone has been abducting young girls in the area for several years, and their remains have recently been found in shallow graves in a nearby wooded area. And Lindsay is asked to identify them. A lot of strange things have happened since Lindsay and her colleagues from the Anthropology Department at the University of Georgia first began excavating the Indian settlement at Jasper Creek. First came the grave robbers and pot hunters, then the mysterious opposition that jeopardizes their work. After the shady lawyer who has orchestrated some of the trouble is murdered and someone attempts to abduct a nine-year-old girl, Lindsay finds herself in the middle of a crime that took place sixty years earlier. Because so much time has passed, it looks as if the murderer will get away with the crime. Can Lindsay provide the proof needed to bring the killer to justice?

Product : Overcoming Speechlessness: A Poet Encounters the Horror in Rwanda, Eastern Congo, and Palestine/Israel
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : " Alice Walker] has transcended expectations in her response to September 11. "Sent by Earth" . . . is simple, practical, and beyond argument."--"The New Yorker," on "Sent by Earth" "There is only one daughter, one father, one mother, one son, one aunt or uncle, one dog . . . or goat in the Universe, after all: the one right in front of you."--From "Overcoming Speechlessness" In 2006 Alice Walker, working with Women for Women International, visited Rwanda and the eastern Congo to witness the aftermath of the genocide in Kigali. Invited by Code Pink, an antiwar group working to end the Iraq War, Walker traveled to Palestine/Israel three years later to view the devastation on the Gaza Strip. Here is her testimony. Bearing witness to the depravity and cruelty, she presents the stories of the individuals who crossed her path and shared their tales of suffering and courage. Part of what has happened to human beings over the last century, she believes, is that we have been rendered speechless by unusually barbaric behavior that devalues human life. We have no words to describe what we witness. Self-imposed silence has slowed our response to the plight of those who most need us, often women and children, but also men of conscience who resist evil but are outnumbered by those around them who have fallen victim to a belief in weapons, male or ethnic dominance, and greed. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, Alice Walker is the author of more than thirty books including "The Color Purple" and "Sent by Earth." Her writings have been translated into more than two dozen languages. From her essays concerning the civil rights movement to cries for intervention on the Gaza Strip, Walker continually and eloquently calls attention to ignored injustices around the world.

While Campbell claims that God told her to "send her three children to Him," it is up to Karp to prove that she was fully aware of the nature and consequences of her actions. Meanwhile, an Islamic terrorist, The Sheik, and his homegrown suicidal "jihadis" hatch a plan, a spectacular outrage to occur in Manhattan's heartland, that if successful could destroy the economy of the United States and the world. Standing between the terrorist Sheik and his diabolical scheme are Butch's wife, Marlene Ciampi, a private detective focused on protecting women from abusers; the couple's daughter, Lucy, who has joined a secretive anti-terrorist organization; and a wonderfully eccentric-but effective-group of crime fighters as has ever graced the pages of a book.

Free Culture: How Big Media Uses Technology and the Law to Lock Down Culture and Control Creativity

Product : Free Culture: How Big Media Uses Technology and the Law to Lock Down Culture and Control Creativity
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From "the most important thinker on intellectual property in the Internet era" ("The New Yorker"), a landmark manifesto about the genuine closing of the American mind. Lawrence Lessig could be called a cultural environmentalist. One of America's most original and influential public intellectuals, his focus is the social dimension of creativity: how creative work builds on the past and how society encourages or inhibits that building with laws and technologies. In his two previous books, Code and The Future of Ideas, Lessig concentrated on the destruction of much of the original promise of the Internet. Now, in Free Culture, he widens his focus to consider the diminishment of the larger public domain of ideas. In this powerful wake-up call he shows how short-sighted interests blind to the long-term damage they're inflicting are poisoning the ecosystem that fosters innovation. All creative works-books, movies, records, software, and so on-are a compromise between what can be imagined and what is possible-technologically and legally. For more than two hundred years, laws in America have sought a balance between rewarding creativity and allowing the borrowing from which new creativity springs. The original term of copyright set by the Constitution in 1787 was seventeen years. Now it is closer to two hundred. Thomas Jefferson considered protecting the public against overly long monopolies on creative works an essential government role. What did he know that we've forgotten? Lawrence Lessig shows us that while new technologies always lead to new laws, never before have the big cultural monopolists used the fear created by new technologies, specifically the Internet, to shrink the public domain of ideas, even as the same corporations use the same technologies to control more and more what we can and can't do with culture. As more and more culture becomes digitized, more and more becomes controllable, even as laws are being toughened at the behest of the big media groups. What's at stake is our freedom-freedom to create, freedom to build, and ultimately, freedom to imagine.

Pirates of Barbary: Corsairs, Conquests and Captivity in the Seventeenth-Century Mediterranean

Product : Pirates of Barbary: Corsairs, Conquests and Captivity in the Seventeenth-Century Mediterranean
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The stirring story of the seventeenth-century pirates of the Mediterranean-the forerunners of today's bandits of the seas-and how their conquests shaped the clash between Christianity and Islam. It's easy to think of piracy as a romantic way of life long gone-if not for today's frightening headlines of robbery and kidnapping on the high seas. Pirates have existed since the invention of commerce itself, but they reached the zenith of their power during the 1600s, when the Mediterranean was the crossroads of the world and pirates were the scourge of Europe and the glory of Islam. They attacked ships, enslaved crews, plundered cargoes, enraged governments, and swayed empires, wreaking havoc from Gibraltar to the Holy Land and beyond. Historian and author Adrian Tinniswood brings alive this dynamic chapter in history, where clashes between pirates of the East-Tunis, Algiers, and Tripoli-and governments of the West-England, France, Spain, and Venice-grew increasingly intense and dangerous. In vivid detail, Tinniswood recounts the brutal struggles, glorious triumphs, and enduring personalities of the pirates of the Barbary Coast, and how their maneuverings between the Muslim empires and Christian Europe shed light on the religious and moral battles that still rage today. As Tinniswood notes in "Pirates of Barbary," "Pirates are history." In this fascinating and entertaining book, he reveals that the history of piracy is also the history that shaped our modern world.

Philanthropy, Heirs & Values: How Successful Families Are Using Philanthropy to Prepare Their Heirs for Post-Transition Responsibi

Product : Philanthropy, Heirs & Values: How Successful Families Are Using Philanthropy to Prepare Their Heirs for Post-Transition Responsibi
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This first-of-a-kind book by Roy Williams and Vic Preisser of The Williams Group reveals the hidden power of philanthropy to prepare your heirs for wealth and responsibility. After interviewing 3,250 affluent families, and examining almost 100 family foundations, the authors disclose how successful families are using philanthropy to teach their heirs Values, develop their appreciation for focus on a specific Mission, and instill a sense of Accountability. In many cases, the use of philanthropy as a teaching tool by the family leaders determined whether or not the family remained unified-and financially successful-in their post-transition period. As in their prior groundbreaking book Preparing Heirs C 2003, the authors provide exercises, examples and checklists for each of five major age groups, beginning at age five. The book is easy to read and filled with specific guidance and examples. Viewing philanthropy as a tool to improve your odds of post-transition success adds a new benefit to the traditional rationale behind family foundations and family giving programs.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Weasel Words: The colorful words that narrow the range of thought, inflate language, avoid responsibility, alleviate the discomfort of a waffling speaker, make the bad sound good, are at variance with the real or purported meaning, are a misnomer, euphemism, evasion, or are simply delightful forms of flim-flam identified by the two distortion detectives. From A to Z--this hard-hitting, politically savvy dictionary takes on all those American evasions, put-on-holds, distortions, circumventions, obfuscations, and misleading terms that constantly besiege us in today's "spinning" world, as well as popular catch phrases that simply annoy. Now when you listen to politicians, academics, bureaucrats, and television's talking heads, or get sent on an endless round of recorded euphemisms on the telephone when you are trying desperately to get help or clarification--you'll really understand what you are hearing. The authors, both veterans of government and academia, provide a handbook for deciphering such weaseling jewels as: -amicable often followed by agreement, meaning both sides were mutually disgruntled by the outcome-economically disadvantaged for poor -encore TV broadcast the rerun ad nauseum of previously broadcast television programs.-episode a bureaucratic term used by governments and power companies to indicate a hazardous condition resulting in illness and death due to excessive pollution or radiation leaks.-mild irregularity for the last unmentionable on TV, constipation.-negative economic growth for recession.-mobile home community for trailer park-o.g.a. for "other government agency," used by the military at overseas interrogation sites to indicate the Central Intelligence Agency-sound science for anti-environmental policies that ignore scientific evidence. The authors provide a guide to the rich and varied language of deception, evasion and cant threatening today's society useful for students of English, business ethics, government and popular culture. They you and other connoisseurs of clear English and fed-up progressives to help them stamp out weasel words and get to the heart of what's wrong with our society today--one "weasel word" at a time.

Tower

Product : Tower
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Taking up the storied themes of crime fiction--loyalty and betrayal, temptation and treachery--Tower lifts and elevates them, forging a tale both barbaric and baleful, swaggering and broken-hearted. Brutal, soaring street poetry to take your breath away."--Megan Abbott, Edgar Award-winning author of Queenpin and Bury Me Deep "A rough and profane read, with haunting echoes of a Southie of the mind."--Daniel Woodrell, author of Winter's Bone An original novel. From a rough Brooklyn neighborhood, Nick and Todd forge a lifelong bond that persists in the face of blood and betrayal. Low-level wiseguys with little ambition and less of a future, the friends become players in the destruction of an international crime syndicate stretching from the Kennedy Airport to the streets of New York, Boston, and Belfast, to the alleyways of Mexican border towns. Their paths are littered with the bodies of cops, snitches, lovers, and stone killers. In the tradition of The Long Goodbye, Mystic River, and The Departed, Tower is a powerful meditation on friendship, fate, and fatality. A twice-told tale done in the unique format of parallel narratives that intersect at deadly crossroads, Tower is like a beautifully crafted knife to the heart. Ken Bruen (The Guards, Priest) and Reed Farrel Coleman (The James Deans, Soul Patch) have each been twice nominated for the Edgar Award. They have each won the Shamus Award twice and have also either received or been nominated for the Barry, Anthony, and Macavity awards. Bruen divides his time between America and Ireland. Coleman lives on Long Island.

How Mumbo-jumbo Conquered the World: A Short History of Modern Delusions

Product : How Mumbo-jumbo Conquered the World: A Short History of Modern Delusions
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In 1979 two events occurred that would shape the next twenty-five years. In America and Britain, an era of weary consensus was displaced by the arrival of a political marriage of fiery idealists: Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher transformed politics with a combination of breezy charm and assertive "Victorian values." In Iran, the fundamentalist cleric Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini set out to restore a regime that had last existed almost 1,300 years ago. Between them they succeeded in bringing the twentieth century to a premature close. By 1989, Francis Fukuyama was declaring that we had now reached the End of History. What colonized the space recently vacated by notions of history, progress and reason? Cults, quackery, gurus, irrational panics, moral confusion and an epidemic of idiocy, the proof of which was to be found in every state, every work-place, and every library. In "Idiot Proof," columnist Francis Wheen brilliantly evokes the key personalities of the post-political era--including Princess Diana and Deepak Chopra, Osama bin Laden and Nancy Reagan's astrologer--while lamenting the extraordinary rise in superstition, relativism and emotional hysteria over the past quarter of a century. In turn comic, indignant, outraged and just plain baffled by the idiocy of it all, "Idiot Proof" is a masterful depiction of the daftness of our times and a plea that we might just think a little more and believe a little less.

It won both the Orange Prize and the Whitbread Book of the Year Award, and has sold over a million copies worldwide. With "The Long Song," Levy once again reinvents the historical novel. Told in the irresistibly willful and intimate voice of Miss July, with some editorial assistance from her son, Thomas, "The Long Song "is at once defiant, funny, and shocking. The child of a field slave on the Amity sugar plantation, July lives with her mother until Mrs. Caroline Mortimer, a recently transplanted English widow, decides to move her into the great house and rename her “Marguerite.” Resourceful and mischievous, July soon becomes indispensable to her mistress. Together they live through the bloody Baptist war, followed by the violent and chaotic end of slavery. Taught to read and write so that she can help her mistress run the business, July remains bound to the plantation despite her “freedom.” It is the arrival of a young English overseer, Robert Goodwin, that will dramatically change life in the great house for both July and her mistress. Prompted and provoked by her son’s persistent questioning, July’s resilience and heartbreak are gradually revealed in this extraordinarily powerful story of slavery, revolution, freedom, and love.

Description : Compassionately written by an experienced team of professionals, this book offers parents and families essential information about the causes, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders of sex development, or DSD. DSD refers to medical conditions, usually discovered at birth, in which there is disagreement between a person's genetic sex (i.e., chromosomes) and the appearance of the person's external or internal reproductive structures. After their child is diagnosed with DSD, parents need answers to a host of questions, including - What is DSD, why does it occur, how is it identified, and how is it treated?- Did we do something to cause our child's DSD?- Is my baby a boy or a girl?- Will my child grow up to be normal and healthy?- Does my child need surgery? This concise book answers parents' questions in a reassuring and forthright way, giving affected individuals, their families, and their health care providers a current and evidence-based picture of DSD. It offers clear explanations of how newborns with DSD are evaluated, diagnosed, and treated; describes the different kinds of DSD; and pays close attention to both psychosocial and medical aspects of DSD. This guide also includes information about the importance of support groups and education for affected individuals and their families. In their daily work, the authors treat, support, and educate people with DSD and their families. This resource gives parents and families access to the authors' expertise so they can reach a meaningful understanding of their child's DSD and make informed decisions about their child's health.

Description : One of Comedy Central's Top 100 Stand-Up Comedians of All Time, award-winning dramatic actor, and an internet pioneer, Kevin Pollak has done it all for thirty years and is ready to spill the beans. Best known for performances in "A Few Good Men" and "The Usual Suspects," he shares never-before-heard stories of film legends like De Niro, Hanks, Howard, Lemon, Loren, Lucas, Martin, Mathau, Reiner, Scorcese, Singer, Willis, and more. He turned down his first invitation to do stand-up on "The Tonight Show" because he knew that he'd have a bigger impact if he sat next to Johnny instead of performing onstage. When he gambled for a spot on the most coveted couch in showbiz, he had no agent, no auditions, no prospects. But his gut was right: A year later, his first sit with the king of late night led to three visits a year, every year, until Carson retired. Now a new media entrepreneur, Pollak is laughing proof that you can do anything you want--except have a rational conversation with Rip Torn, who's an evil, paranoid $# %.

How to Be a Woman: My Mother, Schiaparelli, and Me

Product : How to Be a Woman: My Mother, Schiaparelli, and Me
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From the best-selling author of "Stuffed," comes a richly illustrated memoir, written with charm and panache, that juxtaposes two lives--an iconoclastic Italian fashion designer and the author's mother--to explore how a girl fashions herself into a woman. Audrey Morgen Volk, an upper-middle-class New Yorker, was a great beauty and lover of fashion, and the polished hostess at her family's garment district restaurant. Elsa Schiaparelli--"Schiap"--the high-fashion designer whose creations shocked the world, broke every rule, blurred the line between fashion and art, and believed that in both fashion and life, everything, even a button, has the potential to delight. Audrey's daughter Patricia read Schiap's autobiography, "Shocking Life," at a tender age, and was transformed by it. These two very different women--volatile, opinionated, and brilliant, each in her own way--offered Patricia lessons about womanhood and personal style that would stay with her throughout her life. Moving seamlessly between the Volks' Manhattan and Florida homes and Schiap's astonishing life in Rome and Paris (among friends such as Dali, Duchamp, Picasso), "Shocked" weaves Audrey's notions of domesticity with Schiaparelli's often outrageous creations into a dazzling meditation on beauty, then and now, and on being a daughter, sister, and mother. It is funny, wise, and utterly delightful.

Description : "Childhood Motor Speech Disabilities" provides a comprehensive, up-to-date outline of all childhood motor speech disabilities. This book also gives readers a complete picture of the major nervous system disorders associated with dysarthria, presents the five types of childhood dysarthria, and clarifies the classification of childhood dysarthria. The eight years since the publication of the first edition have seen an increased interest in the nature and habilitation of the controversial disorder known as developmental verbal dyspraxia (DVD). The heated controversy and intense interest in DVD is questioned and put in perspective by pointing out that it is a low frequency pediatric phonological disorder compared to the widespread phonological delay of unknown origin. "Childhood Motor Speech Disability" also reviews and critiques a three-part research study by JSHR and two major textbooks that have been published since the first edition. For readers interested in childhood motor speech disabilities.

Description : Walker Brown was born with a genetic mutation so rare that doctors call it an orphan syndrome: perhaps 300 people around the world also live with it. Walker turns twelve in 2008, but he weighs only 54 pounds, is still in diapers, can't speak and needs to wear special cuffs on his arms so that he can't continually hit himself. "Sometimes watching him," Brown writes, "is like looking at the man in the moon - but you know there is actually no man there. But if Walker is so insubstantial, why does he feel so important? What is he trying to show me?" In a book that owes its beginnings to Brown's original "Globe and Mail" series, he sets out to answer that question, a journey that takes him into deeply touching and troubling territory. "All I really want to know is what goes on inside his off-shaped head," he writes, "But every time I ask, he somehow persuades me to look into my own."

A trip to Europe with her parents does little to raise her spirits, until she meets William, Duke of Whitfield. In time, despite her qualms, William insists on giving up his distant right to the British throne to make Sarah his dutchess and his wife. On their honeymoon, the newlyweds buy an old French chateau, but not long after, the war begins. William joins the allied forces, leaving Sarah, their first child, an infant, and their second child on the way, in France. After the Nazi forces take over the chateau, Sarah continues to survive the terror and deprivation of the Occupation, unwavering in her belief that her missing-in-action husband is still alive. After the war, as a gesture of goodwill, the Whitfields start buying jewels offered for sale by impoverished war survivors. With Sarah's style and keen eye, the collection becomes the prestigious Whitfield's jewelry store in Paris. Eventually, their jewelry business expands to London and Rome, as their family grows. Phillip, their firstborn, is stubborn and proud; Julian, their second son, is charming and generous and warm; Isabelle is rebellious and willful; and Xavier, unusual and untamed is the final unexpected gift of their love. They each find their own way, but will be drawn to the great house of gems their parents built.

He shares for the first time his broader vision to promote peace through education and literacy, as well as touching on military matters, Islam, and women-all woven together with the many rich personal stories of the people who have been involved in this remarkable two-decade humanitarian effort.

He has met with heads of state, top military officials, and leading politicians who all seek his advice and insight.

Breaking the Da Vinci Code: Answers to the Questions Everyone's Asking

Product : Breaking the Da Vinci Code: Answers to the Questions Everyone's Asking
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Many who have read the New York Times best-seller The Da Vinci Code have questions that arise from seven codes -- expressed or implied -- in Dan Brown's book. In Breaking the Da Vinci Code: Answers to the Questions Everyone's Asking, Darrell Bock, Ph.D., responds to the novelist's claims using central ancient texts and answers the following questions: Who was Mary Magdalene?Was Jesus Married?Would Jesus Being Single be Un-Jewish?Do the So-Called Secret, Gnostic Gospels Help Us Understand Jesus?How Were the New Testament Gospels Assembled?Does Mary's Honored Role as Apostle Match the Claims of the New School?What Is the Remaining Relevance of The Da Vinci Code? Darrell Bock's research uncovers the origins of these codes by focusing on the 325 years immediately following the birth of Christ, for the claims of The Da Vinci Code rise or fall on the basis of things emerging from this period. Breaking the Da Vinci Code distinguishes fictitious entertainment from historical elements of the Christian faith. For by seeing these differences, one can break the Da Vinci code. Ultimately, though, there is another code lurking behind the pages of this novel. Most readers of the novel have no idea that this other code is there. In fact, Bock didn't notice it at first himself. Breaking the Da Vinci code, though, will lead readers to discover why this novel has become something of a public phenomenon and why the issues it raises are worthy of careful study and reflection.

Now, in his first novel, Sarris continues to explore the fragile ties that bind Native American families in their struggles for freedom and dignity. Told from the points of view of Johnny Severe, his grandmother, Elba, and his mother, Iris, Watermelon Nights reaches to the past and toward the future to uncover the secrets behind each character's extraordinary powers of perception. When eighteen-year-old Johnny contemplates leaving home for the big city, he discovers there's more than his floundering used-clothing store keeping him where he is. We learn how the tragic events of his grandmother's childhood, as well as his mother's attempts to separate herself from her Indian past, make Johnny's dilemma all the more difficult. Gritty yet rich in detail and emotion, Watermelon Nights confirms Greg Sarris as an important voice in contemporary American literature.

The River Wife

Product : The River Wife
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From acclaimed novelist Jonis Agee, whom "The New York Times Book Review "called "a gifted poet of that dark lushness in the heart of the American landscape," "The River Wife" is a sweeping, panoramic story that ranges from the New Madrid earthquake of 1811 through the Civil War to the bootlegging days of the 1930s. When the earthquake brings Annie Lark's Missouri house down on top of her, she finds herself pinned under the massive roof beam, facing certain death. Rescued by French fur trapper Jacques Ducharme, Annie learns to love the strong, brooding man and resolves to live out her days as his "River Wife." More than a century later, in 1930, Hedie Rails comes to Jacques' Landing to marry Clement Ducharme, a direct descendant of the fur trapper and river pirate, and the young couple begin their life together in the very house Jacques built for Annie so long ago. When, night after late night, mysterious phone calls take Clement from their home, a pregnant Hedie finds comfort in Annie's leather-bound journals. But as she reads of the sinister dealings and horrendous misunderstandings that spelled out tragedy for the rescued bride, Hedie fears that her own life is paralleling Annie's, and that history is repeating itself with Jacques' kin. Among the family's papers, Hedie encounters three other strong-willed women who helped shape Jacques Ducharme's life-Omah, the freed slave who took her place beside him as a river raider; his second wife, Laura, who loved money more than the man she married; and Laura and Jacques' daughter, Maddie, a fiery beauty with a nearly uncontrollable appetite for love. Their stories, together with Annie's, weave a haunting tale of this mysterious, seductive, and ultimately dangerous man, a man whose hand stretched over generations of women at a bend in the river where fate and desire collide. " The River Wife "richly evokes the nineteenth-century South at a time when lives changed with the turn of a card or the flash of a knife. Jonis Agee vividly portrays a lineage of love and heartbreak, passion and deceit, as each river wife comes to discover that blind devotion cannot keep the truth at bay, nor the past from haunting the present. "From the Hardcover edition."

Far Left of Center: The American Radical Left Today

Product : Far Left of Center: The American Radical Left Today
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Histories of American radical left groups abound. The Communist party, the tiny Trotskyist movement, and the New Left have all been abundantly chronicled. Very little information has been available, however, about the Radical Left today. Far Left of Center remedies that deficit. Part One deals with the Communist party of the United States, the largest and most influential Marxist-Leninist group in the United States. Part Two deals with Trotskyist, Maoist, the other Marxist-Leninist organizations in the United States. Part Three deals with organizations that eschew formalities to Marxist-Leninist parties and are not under the control of these parties, although they may work with them towards some of the same objectives. The basic premise of this volume is that these far-left groups support and defend oppressive and totalitarian regimes and cooperate with those dedicated to the destruction of democracy and intellectual freedom. The author is careful to distinguish these groups from democratic socialists in the United States, who have vigorously and continuously denounced Marxism-Leninism and those regimes founded on its principles. Klehr has written a sober, well-documented, comprehensive account of the Radical Left in the United States today.

So, off she goes, from Chicago to Bard Academy, an exclusive prep school that treats troubled teenagers with a healthy dose of higher learning and old-fashioned discipline. But all is not what it seems at this educational institute, and Mia and her classmates soon discover that the teachers are actually ghosts, stuck in limbo, some of them famous authors who died before their time, including Virginia Woolf, Ernest Hemingway, and Charlotte Bronte. And what's even more disturbing is that not all the ghosts have good intentions.

The English Is Coming!: How One Language Is Sweeping the World

Product : The English Is Coming!: How One Language Is Sweeping the World
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : English has fast become the number one language for everything from business and science, diplomacy and education, entertainment and environmentalism to socializing and beyond--virtually any human activity unfolding on a global scale. Worldwide, nonnative speakers of English now outnumber natives three to one; and in China alone, more people use English than in the United States--a remarkable feat for a language that got its start as a mongrel tongue on an island fifteen hundred years ago.Through the fascinating stories of thirty English words used and understood in nearly all corners of the globe, "The English Is Coming "takes readers on an eye-opening journey across culture and commerce, war and peace, and time and space. These mini-histories shed new light on everyday words: the strange turns of fate by which their meanings evolved and their new roles as the building blocks of the first language ever to forge a global community. Exploring such familiar terms as "shampoo "(from a Hindi word for scalp and body hygiene long practiced in India); "robot "(coined by Czech painter Josef Capek for his brother Karel's 1921 play about man-made creatures); "credit "(rooted in a prehistoric phrase of sacred significance: "to put heart into"); and dozens of others, Dunton-Downer reveals with clarity and humor how these linguistic artifacts embody the resilience, appeal, adoptability, and wild inclusiveness that English, through a series of historical accidents, gained on its road to worldwide reach. These words explain not only how English has managed to link our distant and often disparate pasts but also how it is propelling humankind to a future that we can, for the first time, talk about and shape in a language that now belongs to all of us: Global English. Perfect for culture buffs, armchair travelers, and language lovers alike, "The English Is Coming "is sure to inspire truly global conversations for decades to come.

Doing Things Right in Matters of the Heart

Product : Doing Things Right in Matters of the Heart
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Doing Things Right in Matters of the Heart defines and describes biblical masculinity and femininity for single adults. I would also encourage those who are married to read it. John Ensor is a creative and theologically astute writer. I have thanked him for writing this book and you will too." C. J. Mahaney Sovereign Grace Ministries "John Ensor provides a radically biblical alternative to the supposed wisdom of our age. Though sometimes raw, frank, and frustrated, Ensor is always sanctified and often poetic. He celebrates differences, bringing into clear focus the oft-disputed fact that God created men and women to be equal and symmetrical but not identical. For all who are weary of our culture's assault on biblical manhood and womanhood, this book is a refreshing reminder of the Bible's simple wisdom governing love, relationships, marriage, and matters of the heart." Tim Challies Christian blogger (Challies.com); editor, Discerning Reader There is a radical, biblical alternative to much of what is taught and practiced today regarding relationships. Doing Things Right in Matters of the Heart presents a bold plan for escaping the swift currents of contemporary patterns of hooking up, shacking up, and breaking up. It draws a compelling vision of complementarity between the sexes. It instructs men on what to do and informs women on what to look for in their mutual pursuit of a healthy, tender, long-term relationship.

Product : Simple Stunning Weddings: Designing and Creating Your Perfect Celebration
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The three biggest trends in weddings today are simplicity, personalization, and color. Wedding design expert Karen Bussen highlights these elements as she shows couples how to design their own weddings without going crazy or broke. "Simple Stunning Weddings is the first wedding design book to focus on the where of the wedding. Location is the first and most important decision brides and grooms must make: everything else flows from that. Bussen showcases 12 popular wedding settings, including the city loft, country inn, art gallery, botanic garden, and private club, and demonstrates how to make them extraordinary. With the site as the starting point, she creates unifying themes with color, flowers, and personal touches. She explains how to deal with vendors, how to spend the wedding budget, and when it makes sense to hire a specialist. Sharing all her trade secrets, Bussen teaches the power of simplicity and the impact of color, which can be tailored to any budget, always to stunning effect: substituting cotton tablecloths for silk in the same eye-dazzling color combinations, for example, or creating striking flower arrangements using only one or two types of blooms. Whether for a barefoot union on a beach or a formal affair in a hotel ballroom, this fully illustrated, information-filled book is like having Bussen on hand as your personal wedding designer.

Description : More than 2 million Americans suffer from seizures. Each year, almost 200,000 people experience a seizure for the first time and approximately 100,000 require hospital admissions.
