The Chosen Shore: Stories of Immigrants

Product : The Chosen Shore: Stories of Immigrants
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A Korean street child is adopted into an upper-middle-class suburban home. A Vietnamese monk dishes up fast food to fund a spiritual center. A woman saves for a home back in Ghana, where she will never live. All are immigrants to the United States, known to most of their fellow Americans only as statistics. The stories that statistics can't tell unfold in this book, in which twenty-three recent immigrants recall navigating the paradoxes, pitfalls, and triumphs of becoming Americans. Candid, evocative, and richly detailed, their oral histories comprise a compelling portrait of the changing face of the American population. In venues from the "San Francisco Chronicle "to the "New York Times, "Ellen Alexander Conley's fiction has been hailed as "wonderful," "impassioned," and "memorable." Conley brings the same passion and skill to her depiction of our nation's most recent arrivals. These personal histories, along with Conley's thoughtful overview of literature on immigration, give us a firsthand sense of what it means to become an American.

The Shame of Survival: Working Through a Nazi Childhood

Product : The Shame of Survival: Working Through a Nazi Childhood
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : While we now have a great number of testimonials to the horrors of the Holocaust from survivors of that dark episode of twentieth-century history, rare are the accounts of what growing up in Nazi Germany was like for people who were reared to think of Adolf Hitler as the savior of his country, and rarer still are accounts written from a female perspective. Ursula Mahlendorf, born to a middle-class family in 1929, at the start of the Great Depression, was the daughter of a man who was a member of the SS at the time of his early death in 1935. For a long while during her childhood she was a true believer in Nazism--and a leader in the Hitler Youth herself. This is her vivid and unflinchingly honest account of her indoctrination into Nazism and of her gradual awakening to all the damage that Nazism had done to her country. It reveals why Nazism initially appealed to people from her station in life and how Nazi ideology was inculcated into young people. The book recounts the increasing hardships of life under Nazism as the war progressed and the chaos and turmoil that followed Germany's defeat. In the first part of this absorbing narrative, we see the young Ursula as she becomes an enthusiastic member of the Hitler Youth and then goes on to a Nazi teacher-training school at fifteen. In the second part, which traces her growing disillusionment with and anger at the Nazi leadership, we follow her story as she flees from the Russian army's advance in the spring of 1945, works for a time in a hospital caring for the wounded, returns to Silesia when it is under Polish administration, and finally is evacuated to the West, where she begins a new life and pursues her dream of becoming a teacher. In a moving Epilogue, Mahlendorf discloses how she learned to accept and cope emotionally with the shame that haunted her from her childhood allegiance to Nazism and the self-doubts it generated.

Product : Dress Accessories, C.1150-C.1450
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Brooches, rings, buckles, pendants, buttons, purses and other accessories were part of everyday dress in the middle ages. Over two thousand such items dating from the period 1150-1450 are described and discussed here, all found in recent archaeological excavations in London - then as now one of western Europe's most cosmopolitan cities, its social and economic activity compounded by the waterside bustle of the Thames. These finds constitute the most extensive and varied group of such accessories yet recovered in Britain, and their close dating and the scientific analysis carried out on them have been highly revealing. Important results published here for the first time show, for example, the popularity of shoddy, mass-produced items in base metals during the high middle ages and enable researchers to identify the varied products of rival traditions of manufacture mentioned in historical sources. Anyone needing accurate information on period costume will welcome this book, which will appeal to the general reader interested in costume and design, as well as to archaeologists and historians. THE AUTHORS are members of staff of the Museum of London.

Description : Why do we work? And why do we work so obsessively? Al Gini observes that work rules, runs and sometimes ruins our lives.

In this provocative, lively, and sometimes disturbing meditation, Gini reveals that work is not only a fundamental aspect of our humanity, but a profound reflection of our deepest selves. Peppered with real voices from workers and employers across American, and with references from psychology, history, popular literature and economics, "My Job, My Self, " speaks to every employed person who has yet to understand the costs and challenges of a lifetime of labor.

The Thief of Happiness: The Story of an Extraordinary Psychotherapy

Product : The Thief of Happiness: The Story of an Extraordinary Psychotherapy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Compulsively readable." --Francine Prose, O: The Oprah Magazine The Thief of Happiness is the story of a sevenyear therapy between the author and the mysterious Dr. Sing--a therapy that was part cult of two, part enchantment, and part love story. In an age when the great and subtle gifts of therapy are downplayed in favor of psychopharmacology, Friedman has written the most detailed and vivid portrayal yet of what actually goes on between therapist and patient. " S]trangely profound. . . . an author] with a great eye for detail." --Joshua Wolf Shenk, The Washington Post " E]xcellent in the way H.D.'s Tribute to Freud] is: it illuminates the intricate, murky relationship between therapy and real life. . . . Friedman is at her best when relaying the delicately nuanced exchanges that occur between the patient and therapist. . . . The book could, like Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird, develop a cult following." --Publishers Weekly "The memoir is sometimes dismissed as a genre for the self-absorbed and self-pitying, yet The Thief of Happiness is neither. . . . An impressive accomplishment and a fine addition to the existing literature on therapy." --Carmela Ciuraru, Forward Bonnie Friedman is widely known as a "writer's writer." Her Writing Past Dark: Envy, Fear, Distraction, and Other Dilemmas in the Writer's Life was on the Village Voice best-seller list in 1994. Her work is anthologized in many writing textbooks and collections like The Best Writing on Writing. It has also appeared in The New York Times, Self, Redbook, and Ladies Home Journal.

Shadow Divers Exposed: The Real Saga of the U-869

Product : Shadow Divers Exposed: The Real Saga of the U-869
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The U-869 was one of more than 1,200 U-boats that were constructed for the Nazi war machine. It was sunk off the American eastern seaboard by a combination hedgehog and depth-charge attack. There were no survivors to tell the tragic tale. Now, for the first time, the real saga of the U-869 can be told in full. Archival documents have established that the U-boat was sunk by two American destroyer escorts. Seven crewmembers of those aggressive warships have supplemented the official record with their personal recollections. Shadow Divers Exposed works on a multitude of levels. It presents the actual circumstances that surrounded the loss of the U-869. It puts the discovery of the U-869 into perspective with other U-boats that have been found in American waters. It provides an overview of the U-boat war through accounts of other U-boat losses. And it corrects some of the gross errors, wild exaggerations, and deliberate distortions that filled the pages of Shadow Divers. The author interviewed a number of witnesses whose testimony contradicted the theatrical plot and boastful embellishments that formed the essential ingredients of Shadow Divers. Some of these witnesses actually performed the deeds for which the chosen protagonists of Shadow Divers were given credit. These witnesses disputed many of the fictitious elements that ran rampant through the pages of Shadow Divers. By means of forensic analyses of shipwreck collapse, torpedo mechanics, and U-boat survivors' accounts, the present volume explains why the U-869 could not have been sunk by a circular run of its own torpedo - as Shadow Divers had its uninformed readers believe.

Stack and Sway: The New Science of Jury Consulting

Product : Stack and Sway: The New Science of Jury Consulting
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A new - and largely hidden - profession has emerged during the past three decades. Drawing on the techniques of modern social science, psychology, and market research, its practitioners seek to remake the way we pursue justice in the United States. Trial consultants help lawyers to pick - some would say, stack - juries predisposed to render the "right" verdict. And consultants apply sophisticated research methods to predict how jurors are likely to respond to arguments, witnesses, and evidence. Based on the results of the research, they craft case strategies, help to prepare witnesses, and test and retest arguments - all before a single word is uttered in open court. For fees that sometimes approach six, or even seven, figures, the new jury experts offer attorneys and their clients what they most desire - a way to remove uncertainty.What are we to make of this new industry? Do the techniques work? Is this, as some critics have argued, a new form of high-tech jury-rigging, not much more acceptable than cruder forms of jury tampering? Or do the methods of jury consultants amount to little more than an extension of what attorneys have always done? One thing is clear. The profession is growing steadily. Jury consultants have already made their mark in big-money civil cases. And they have played key roles in prominent criminal trials. After hearing jurors acquit in the O. J. Simpson case, the first person thanked by defense attorney Johnnie Cochran was his jury expert. The burgeoning of the trial consulting industry seems destined to continue. During the past few years, firms have started to offer low-cost consultations, sometimes conducting research for as little as $2000 per case. Forbetter or worse, the wares of the trial consultant are now within the reach of many who previously deemed them too expensive. When a new trade roams the halls of our legal system, aspiring to change America's road to justice, we had all best pay attention. This book will reveal the "tricks of the trade" and explore the many ways in which trial consultants have infiltrated the courtroom. The authors -- a social psychologist and an attorney -- present cases where consultants arguably have been responsible for huge jury awards and controversial criminal verdicts. However, it is not their purpose to launch an all-out attack on this growing industry. Instead, they aim to pull back the curtains, allowing a fair and balanced assessment of a new phenomenon in American justice.To achieve this objective, the authors must address issues that lie at the very heart of the American jury system. Are juries fickle? Are they easily swayed? Are jurors influenced - as many have charged - by their age, gender, race, ethnicity, occupation, intellect, personality, or politics? Here, the authors sort through the work of many jury researchers, arriving at conclusions that are balanced and credible. They conclude with sensible and far-reaching proposals for change.

Degas at Harvard

Product : Degas at Harvard
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This handsomely illustrated book presents more than seventy paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, and sculptures by Edgar Degas (1834-1917) in Harvard University's collections--one of the most important holdings of the artist's work in the United States. In 1911, the Fogg Art Museum was the first museum to mount a one-man exhibition on Degas and was the only museum to do so during the artist's lifetime. This book examines the history of Degas's reception in the U.S., and in particular the pivotal role that Harvard played. Marjorie Benedict Cohn offers a historical account of the formation of the prized collection of Degas's works at the Fogg. Jean Sutherland Boggs provides an engaging personal recollection of her initial encounter in 1944 with Degas and his champion at the Fogg, associate director Paul J. Sachs, who inspired not only Boggs's later work on Degas but also that of many other art historians, museum directors, and curators.

Trees, Shrubs & Cacti of South Texas

Product : Trees, Shrubs & Cacti of South Texas
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This revised edition of the popular field guide provides a color photograph and gives family name, scientific name, common name, and a general description for each of more than 180 species of trees, shrubs, and sub-shrubs and more than twenty species of cactus common to the fourteen southernmost counties of Texas. The book contains twelve species not included in the previous edition, plus newly updated information. It describes frequently encountered species as well as many rare or endangered species, and native plants as well as introduced plants that have escaped cultivation and are reproducing in the wild. The text accompanying each plant's photograph includes not only a general description of the plant and its habit, but also its geographical range; a brief description of the habitat in which it can be found; its value and uses, if any, by wildlife and livestock; and other distinguishing ecological characteristics. Most of the plants were photographed at either the flowering or fruiting stage so that they might be more easily recognized. Although only fourteen counties of South Texas are represented, the extensive ranges of many of the included species make this book a useful reference for plants in other areas of Texas, the southwestern United States, and northern Mexico. This publication will be useful to ranchers and ranch managers, scientists, and anyone else interested in the flora of southern Texas. Information gleaned from this book will contribute to sound land management programs.

A Movable Feast: Ten Millennia of Food Globalization

Product : A Movable Feast: Ten Millennia of Food Globalization
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In the last twenty-five years alone, the range of fruits and vegetables, even grains, that is available at most local markets has changed dramatically. Over the last 10,000 years, that change is almost unimaginable. This groundbreaking new work, from the editor of the highly regarded Cambridge World History of Food, examines the exploding global palate. It begins with the transition from foraging to farming that got underway some 10,000 years ago in the Fertile Crescent, then examines subsequent transitions in Egypt, Africa south of the Sahara, China, southeast Asia, the Indus Valley Oceanic, Europe, and the Americas. It ends with chapters on genetically modified foods, the fast food industry, the nutritional ailments people have suffered from, famine, the obesity epidemic, and a look at the future on the food front. Food, at its most basic, fuels the human body. At its most refined, food has been elevated to a position of fine art. The path food has taken through history is a fairly straightforward one; the space which it occupies today could not be more fraught. This sweeping narrative covers both ends of the spectrum, reminding us to be grateful for and delighted in a grain of wheat, as well as making us aware of the many questions that remain unanswered about what lies ahead. Did you know. . . - That beans were likely an agricultural mistake? - That cheese making was originated in Iran over 6000 years ago? - That pepper was once worth its weight in gold? - That sugar is the world's best-selling food, surpassing even wheat? - That Winston Churchill asserted, in 1942, that tea was more important to his troops than ammunition? - That chili con carne is one of the earliest examples of food globalization? - That, by 1880, virtually every major city in America had a Chinese restaurant? - That white bread was once considered too nutritious? Kenneth Kiple reveals these facts and more within A Movable Feast.

Resistance of the Heart: Intermarriage and the Rosenstrasse Protest in Nazi Germany

Product : Resistance of the Heart: Intermarriage and the Rosenstrasse Protest in Nazi Germany
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In February 1943, the Gestapo swiftly arrested approximately 10,000 Jews remaining in Berlin. Most of them died within days in the gas chambers of Auschwitz. Two thousand of those Jews, however, were locked into a temporary collection center on a street called Rosenstrasse, in the heart of Berlin. These two thousand had non-Jewish, German husbands, wives, and children. As news of the huge arrest spread throughout the city hundreds of Gentile spouses, mostly women, hurried to the Rosenstrasse in protest. A chant broke out: "Give us back our husbands". For a week the Berlin police and uniformed SS dispersed the women with threats to shoot them down. Again and again, the women regrouped and advanced in solidarity until the Gestapo backed down and freed their loved ones. The Rosenstrasse protest came at a time when the Nazi terror system had ground into its highest gear. This open protest challenged the regime on its very doorstep and became the single successful public protest inside Nazi Germany against Hitler's campaign to annihilate European Jews. Who were these intermarried Germans who dared to disobey history's most ruthless regime? Why did they choose to suffer the stigmas of intermarriage? And why did Hitler and Goebbels give in to the protesters and release two thousand Jews? If more Germans had protested, might the Holocaust have been slowed or even stopped? Resistance of the Heart is a powerful response to these questions. The history of the Rosenstrasse protest demonstrates the courage -- and compromise -- of self-protective resistance. Using interviews with survivors and thousands of Nazi records never before examined in detail, Nathan Stoltzfus has reconstructed aprecise, inspiring story.

Description : In this call to listen to the God who speaks, Dr. Klaus Bockmuehl (formerly professor of theology at Regent College, Vancouver, BC) encourages the cultivation of a "listening heart" -- a day-by-day, obedient sensitivity to the voice of God. Tracing themes in divine guidance first through the Old and New Testaments, Dr. Bockmuehl then turns to the "living testimonies" of church history and a crucial doctrinal struggle rooted in the Reformation that has left its legacy in secular and religious ideology alike. Insightful and devotional, "Listening to the God Who Speaks" instructs and motivates readers for a life attentive to God's voice, liberated by a "new creativity and spontaneity that go beyond peraonsl piety to implementation of the Kingdom of God in all human affairs."

Perpetual Prisoner Machine: How America Profits from Crime

Product : Perpetual Prisoner Machine: How America Profits from Crime
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In "The Perpetual Prisoner Machine," author Joel Dyer takes a critical look at the United States' criminal justice system as we enter the new millennium. America has more than tripled its prison population since 1980 even though crime rates have been either flat or declining. The U.S. now incarcerates nearly two million people in its prisons and jails on any given day and over five million of its citizens are currently under some form of justice department supervision. These facts raise an obvious question: If crime rates aren't going up, why is the prison population? "The Perpetual Prisoner Machine" provides the answer to this question and, shockingly, it has little to do with crime or justice. The answer is "profit."In the 1990s, through their mutual and pension funds, millions of American investors are now unwittingly profiting from crime. As a result of America's controversial push towards the privatization of its justice system, a growing number of well-known and politically influential U.S. Corporations--and subsequently their shareholders--are now cashing in on a prison trade whose profit potential is tied directly to the growth of the prison population. A disturbing realization, when you consider the influence that these same multi-national companies now have over our government's policy-making process by way of their lobbyists and their ability to fill campaign coffers."The Perpetual Prisoner Machine" explains how the new prison-industrial complex has capitalized upon the public's fear of crime--which has its origins in violent media content--to help bring about the "hard on crime" policies that have led to our prison-filling, and therefore profitable, "war on crime." Inaddition to a quest for profits, Dyer describes an astounding chain of events including media consolidation and globalization, advances in communication technology, and the increasing political dependence upon public opinion polls and campaign funding that have led to the creation of what the author calls "the perpetual prisoner machine," a mechanism designed to suck the funds from social programs that diminish the crime-enhancing power of poverty and spit them into the bank accounts of those who own stock in the prison-industrial complex.Dyer concludes that powerful, market-driven forces have manipulated America into fighting a very real war against an imaginary foe. "Unfortunately," says Dyer, "real wars have real casualties. And in this case, the victims are America's poor, particularly those segments of our black and Hispanic population who live in poverty and who now comprise the vast majority of the new human commodity."

A Pocket Philosophical Dictionary

Product : A Pocket Philosophical Dictionary
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Here is the only available English translation of one of the landmarks of European Enlightenment thought, Voltaire's 1764 edition of A Pocket Philosophical Dictionary. Highly entertaining and still highly relevant, the "dictionary" actually consists of a sequence of short essays, arranged in alphabetical order, covering everything from Apocalypse and Atheism to Tolerance and Tyranny. The unifying thread of these articles is Voltaire's vitriolic critique of established religion: ridicule of established dogma, attacks on superstition, and pleas for toleration. Witty and ironic, this is very much a work of combat, part of Voltaire's high-profile political struggle in the 1760s to defend the victims of religious and political intolerance. This new translation is based on the definitive French edition of 1764 that provoked widespread controversy and condemnation. In his Introduction Nicholas Cronk considers the nature of Voltaire's engagement in political debate, literary style, contemporary reaction, the lasting impact of the work and its continuing relevance to debates on religious intolerance. The volume also includes an up-to-date bibliography and full explanatory notes.

The Post-Birthday World

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this eagerly awaited new novel, Lionel Shriver, the Orange Prize-winning author of the international bestseller "We Need to Talk About Kevin," delivers an imaginative and entertaining look at the implications, large and small, of whom we choose to love. Using a playful parallel-universe structure, "The Post-Birthday World" follows one woman's future as it unfolds under the influence of two drastically different men. Children's book illustrator Irina McGovern enjoys a quiet and settled life in London with her partner, fellow American expatriate Lawrence Trainer, a smart, loyal, disciplined intellectual at a prestigious think tank. To their small circle of friends, their relationship is rock solid. Until the night Irina unaccountably finds herself dying to kiss another man: their old friend from South London, the stylish, extravagant, passionate top-ranking snooker player Ramsey Acton. The decision to give in to temptation will have consequences for her career, her relationships with family and friends, and perhaps most importantly the texture of her daily life. Hinging on a single kiss, this enchanting work of fiction depicts Irina's alternating futures with two men temperamentally worlds apart yet equally honorable. With which true love Irina is better off is neither obvious nor easy to determine, but Shriver's exploration of the two destinies is memorable and gripping. Poignant and deeply honest, written with the subtlety and wit that are the hallmarks of Shriver's work, "The Post-Birthday World" appeals to the what-if in us all.

The Sellout: How Three Decades of Wall Street Greed and Government Mismanagement Destroyed the Global Financial System

Product : The Sellout: How Three Decades of Wall Street Greed and Government Mismanagement Destroyed the Global Financial System
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The definitive account of Wall Street's stunning collapse From critically acclaimed investigative journalist and CNBC personality Charles Gasparino comes a sweeping examination of the most recent volatile, anxiety-ridden era in our nation's socioeconomic history. "The Sellout" traces the implosion of the financial services business back to its roots in the late 1970s when Wall Street embraced a new business model predicated on taking enormous risks. It shows how a backwater business involving the trading of risky bonds packed with mortgages showered countless billions in profits on the financial industry but sowed the seeds of its ultimate demise. Gasparino walks readers through Wall Street's three-decades' love affair with risk, revealing a trail of culpability--from the government bureaucrats who crafted housing policies that encouraged homeownership, to the Wall Street firms that underwrote and invested in risky debt, to the mortgage sellers who handed out loans to people without the financial wherewithal to pay them back, to the homeowners who became convinced they could afford mansions on blue-collar wages. The ongoing tumult in financial markets and the global economy began when some of our most esteemed financial institutions, our government, and even average citizens abdicated their collective responsibilities, eventually selling out investors and selling off the American Dream itself. In the spirit of classics such as "Barbarians at the Gate" and "Liar's Poker," this page-turning narrative captures how avarice, arrogance, and sheer stupidity eroded Wall Street's dominance and profoundly weakened the financial security of millions of middle-class Americans. Eye-opening and engrossing, "The Sellout" provides the most thorough investigation to date of this latest gilded era.

She was just like any other baby gorilla, riding on her mother's back, playing, taking naps. Then, one day, when Miza and her mother were out searching for food, Miza's mother disappeared, leaving her baby alone and frightened. Miza's father, a fierce silverback named Kabirizi and the leader of Virunga's largest family of mountain gorillas, set out to find Miza. The Congolese rangers, who dedicate their lives to protecting the gorillas, were searching for Miza, too. Everyone was worried about her. Then something amazing happened: Kabirizi found Miza and brought her back to live with her family. Virunga is home to roughly 380 mountain gorillas, just over half of the planet's remaining mountain gorilla population. Miza and other mountain gorillas face an especially uncertain future. They are an endangered species, disappearing at an alarming speed. Without our help they could vanish completely. Filled with lush photographs by award-winning photographer Peter Greste, LOOKING FOR MIZA is a powerful call to action. The fate of these majestic creatures is in our hands. This is Miza's story.

It is also one of the most challenging. So how are parents to cope -- especially with the ever-growing social pressures that today's teens face? Dr. Richard Heyman has the answer: with the right communication skills, almost any problem parents face with their teenage children can be overcome. Offering the same practical how-to information that has made the popular How to Say It "RM" series so successful, this important reference teaches parents how to talk to their teens not only as a parent, but as a friend and advisor. One hundred and one A-to-Z topics cover the most common and contentious issues facing teens and their parents. Chapters range from difficult topics such as contraception, pregnancy, tattoos and body piercing, curfews, sex, and drugs to more mundane matters such as budgeting, careers, money, and friends. Based on real-life scenarios, each chapter serves as an instant resource for: -- Words and phrases to use and those to avoid -- Techniques for starting conversations on important issues -- Getting teens to think openly about each action and its consequences -- Ways to offer advice in the right way at the right time Including self tests, sample dialogues and checklists that will help parents assess their own communication skills, How to Say It to Teens is of critical importance to ensuring family harmony, parental sanity, and the emotional and physical well-being of teens.

Not Buying It: My Year Without Shopping

Product : Not Buying It: My Year Without Shopping
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Many of us have tried to call a halt to our spending at one time or another. But what if we decided not to buy anything for a whole year? Obviously, we would need necessities like food and soap, but how would be manage without new clothes, treats, entertainment? Funny, smart and self-deprecating, "Not Buying It" is a close look at our society's obsession with shopping and the cold turkey confession of a woman we can all identify with -- someone who can't live without French roast coffee andexpensive wool socks, but who has had enough of spending money for the sake of it. Without consumer goods and experiences, Levine and her partner Paul pursue their careers, nurture family relationships and try to keep their sanity and humour intact. Tracking their progress and lapses, she contemplates the meanings of need and desire, scarcity and security, consumerism and citizenship. She asks the big questions -- can the economy survive without shopping? Are Q-tips a necessity? A thought-provoking account of the pleasures and perils of the purchase-driven life, "Not Buying It" will get readers talking about their reliance on the act of buying and the possibility of getting off the merry-go-round.

Summer on Blossom Street

Product : Summer on Blossom Street
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Knitting and life. They're both about beginnings--and endings. That's why it makes sense for Lydia Goetz, owner of A Good Yarn on Seattle's Blossom Street, to offer a class called Knit to Quit. It's for people who want to quit something--or someone --and start a new phase of their lives. First to join is Phoebe Rylander. She recently ended her engagement to a man who doesn't know the meaning of "faithful, " and she's trying to get over him. Then there's Alix Turner. She and her husband, Jordan, want a baby, which means she "has" to quit smoking. And Bryan Hutchinson joins the class because he needs a way to deal with the stress of running his family's business--not to mention the lawsuit brought against him by an unscrupulous lawyer. Life can be as complicated as a knitting pattern. Just ask Anne Marie Roche. She and her adopted daughter, Ellen, finally have the happiness they wished for. And then a stranger comes to her bookstore asking questions. Or ask Lydia herself. Not only is she coping with her increasingly frail mother, but she and Brad have unexpectedly become foster parents to an angry, defiant twelve-year-old. But as Lydia already knows, when life gets difficult and your stitches are snarled, your friends can "always" help

Product : Sex 180: The Next Revolution
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Young adults are fed up with our sex-saturated culture. They realize that there's more to sex than what the media feeds them, and they realize that there's more to responsibility that "just wait until you're married." Youth want to have God's perspective. Not only that, they want to show their peers there's a better way to relate to the opposite sex. It's time for a revolution. A 180-degree turn is underway. Sex 180 is a guide to that revolution. It's more than a book that preaches abstinence before marriage. Sex 180 shows teens what's wrong with the way people talk and think about sex and challenges them to think differently. With solid biblical teaching, interactive sidebars, and real-life stories, teens, parents, and youth leaders will start to think about sex in a whole new way.

Emmet

Product : Emmet
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This delightful picture book from beloved children's book author Leo Politi, originally published in 1971, tells the story of Emmet, one of the many stray dogs taken in by old Mr. Winkel--among them, Poupee, Oscar, and Puff. Emmet was always the troublemaker of the lot, escaping from Mr. Winkel's yard to chase the neighborhood cats and snatch toys from small children. He even refused to obey the grocer's sign that clearly said, "No dogs allowed" Tired of putting up with Emmet's energetic pranks, Mr. Winkel's neighbors are ready to call the dogcatcher when the rascally dog saves the grocer's shop from a fire set by a prowler. As in all Leo Politi's books, Emmet's adventures are richly illustrated and humorously told--and as Emmet frolics across the pages, every reader, young or old, can recall their own pesky neighborhood dogs--and even the ones in their own backyard.
