Product : Terminator and Philosophy: I'll Be Back, Therefore I Am
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Are cyborgs our friends or our enemies? Was it morally right for Skynet to nuke us? Is John Connor free to choose to defend humanity, or not? Is Judgment Day inevitable? The Terminator series is one of the most popular sci-fi franchises ever created, captivating millions with its edgy depiction of the struggle of humankind for survival against its own creations. This book draws on some of history's philosophical heavy hitters: Descartes, Kant, Karl Marx, and many more. Nineteen leather-clad chapters target with extreme prejudice the mysteries surrounding intriguing philosophical issues raised by the Terminator series, including the morality of terminating other people for the sake of peace, whether we can really use time travel to protect our future resistance leaders in the past, and if Arnold's famous T-101 is a real person or not. You'll say "Hasta la vista, baby" to philosophical confusion as you develop a new appreciation for the complexities of John and Sarah Connor and the battles between Skynet and the human race.

Covered Wagon Women, Volume 11: Diaries and Letters from the Western Trails, 1879-1903

Product : Covered Wagon Women, Volume 11: Diaries and Letters from the Western Trails, 1879-1903
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The stories seem simple--they left, they traveled, they settled--yet the restless westering impulse of Americans created one of the most enduring figures in our frontier pantheon: the hardy pioneer persevering against all odds. Undeterred by storms, ruthless bandits, towering mountains, and raging epidemics, the women in these volumes suggest why the pioneer represented the highest ideals and aspirations of a young nation. In this concluding volume of the Covered Wagon Women series, we see the final animal-powered overland migrations that were even then yielding to railroad travel and, in a few short years, to the automobile. The diaries and letters resonate with the vigor and spirit that made possible the settling and community-building of the American West.

The Unforgettable Season

Product : The Unforgettable Season
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : One of "Sports Illustrated"'s top 100 sports books of all-time The 1908 National League pennant race was without question the most exciting and dramatic battle of all time. Three teams, the Giants, the Cubs, and the Pirates, battled from start to finish, concluding the season with just one game separating them in the standings. The story of this race is like a Hall of Fame sprung to life, including John McGraw, Christy Mathewson, Tinker-to-Evers-to-Chance, Mordecai "Three Finger" Brown, and Honus Wagner. Yet the one name that truly stands out belongs to a young Giant rookie, Fred Merkle. His base-running blunder in a key game between the Giants and the Cubs cost the New Yorkers the pennant through an entirely unforeseeable set of circumstances that set off a near-riot in New York. More than mere history, "The Unforgettable Season" uses a judicious selection of newspaper stories to recreate the unforgettable season through the eyes and florid language of sportswriters of the day. With no film, TV, or radio accounts of the game to cloud readers' minds with facts, the newspaper writers had free reign to invent and embellish the larger-than-life figures and events of 1908. It is their efforts that make this book often unintentionally hilarious and unforgettable.

Breaking the Spirit of Addiction

Product : Breaking the Spirit of Addiction
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Breaking the Spirit of Addiction was inspired by the Holy Spirit to help people who are slaves to drug and other addictions. This book provides an in-depth look at how Jesus Christ offers complete and permanent deliverance from Satan's traps, as opposed to the constant recycling process in which many addicts find themselves just "going through the motions" of secular recovery programs. Additionally, this book helps addicts to clearly identify the strongholds they are dealing with, by providing practical biblically-based principles to overcome them. The author, Sam J. Jones, is Bishop of the Good News Fellowship of Churches in Birmingham Alabama. The Good News Fellowship is a mission sponsored by the Eastern Mennonite Missions of Salunga, PA. Long before he became Bishop, Jones worked successfully with hundreds drug addicts for over 17 years. Jones is the president and founder of Highways & Hedges Outreach Training Center, which began in Kankakee, Illinois, Milwaukee, Wisconsin and is now located in Birmingham, Alabama. He is a master trainer for the National Center for Fathering where he trains facilitators across the nation to facilitate classes to "return the fathers heart to their children." He is presently employed with the University of Alabama Birmingham as a project director of the Birmingham Fatherhood Initiative where he worked with over 250 fathers weekly who are struggling with some type of drug addiction.

My Stormy Youth

Product : My Stormy Youth
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Powerful Story of Surviving Death Camps My Stormy Youth presents the Yiddish-translated memoirs of Holocaust survivor Mr. Norman Kamelgard, a 74 year old New Jersey resident born in Poland. Mr. Kamelgard's somber account of Nazi occupied Poland, transformed from a cultural Mecca to desolate slave-labor ghettos, traces his family's fate from preWar posterity to death in the concentration camp. His miraculous survival and emigration to Israel encountered further resistance from British authorities, who imprisoned him for bypassing entry procedures and thinking he was a terrorist. Kamelgard's poignant story captures the profound tragedies forever imprinted in Shoa survivors. Like other survivors, his broken dreams of childhood passionately call attention to the enigma of War and futility of genocide. Sixty-two years after Kristallnacht, Norman Kamelgard found inspiration to publish his memories, first written while a British prisoner. Later he contacted a friend who translated the entire Yiddish version into English. Then, through the serendipity of contacting a Michigan cousin, he learned of the editor, another cousin and psychologist of several books. Parts of My Stormy Youth inspired footage in Director Steven Spielberg's "Schindler's List."

Shadow of Death: A Brady Coyne Novel

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Boston attorney Brady Coyne has just received a call from Jimmy D'Ambrosio, a Democratic party kingmaker and acting campaign manager for prosecutor Ellen Stoddard, who's running for a Senate seat. She's got a real shot at becoming the state's first woman to hold the post, except for one thing: her husband Albert, a college professor and Brady's occasional fishing partner, has been acting strangely, and now he's disappeared altogether. D'Ambrosio wonders if Albert's having a romantic dalliance with a coed, or if some other scandal is threatening to break. Either way, the campaign can't be involved, so he wants Coyne to investigate and keep any threatening skeletons locked firmly away in the closet. But after Coyne uncovers evidence of a murder, D'Ambrosio claims client-attorney privilege and threatens to have him disbarred if he leaks a word of the case to anyone. But Brady refuses to drop the case, and follows the trail to the little town of Southwick, New Hampshire, where an idyllic facade hides a terrible secret. And as the campaign draws to a climax, it seems that Brady Coyne has just been elected most likely to be the next to die.

Connecting with the Congregation

Product : Connecting with the Congregation
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : For most people, rhetoric is a dubious term at best. Whenever they see the word, they expect it to be preceded by something like "empty" or "mere." In other words, in the common understanding, rhetoric is what happens when people want their hearers to believe them and they don't care whether what they say is right or wrong, true or false. The ancient practice of rhetoric, however, wasn't about slick speech designed to convince or persuade; it was about connecting with one's hearers. It was the recognition that, not only what one says, but also who one is, where one is speaking, and those to whom one speaks, are crucial ingredients of getting the message across. If a speaker does not understand these factors, then the power and effectiveness of what he or she says is diminished. Like everyone else, preachers use rhetoric, whether they realize it or not. All preachers pick up signals about the special nature of the message they are conveying, the circumstances in which they are conveying it, and the listeners to whom it is conveyed. The problem is that they are too often unaware of how they understand and use this information -- and hence they use it to poor effect. This volume uses the time-established principles of rhetoric -- a field of study which has enjoyed a revival in recent years -- to help preachers better connect with the congregation. Here they will discover how to understand their own particular authority, the changing and specific character of the congregation each time it meets to worship, and how the Christian message lends itself to different kinds of speech in different situations. What one learns by using rhetoric to understand preaching, the authors contend, isnothing less than how to be a more effective -- and faithful -- servant of the Word.

Kiddie Lit: The Cultural Construction of Children's Literature in America

Product : Kiddie Lit: The Cultural Construction of Children's Literature in America
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The popularity of the Harry Potter books among adults and the critical acclaim these young adult fantasies have received may seem like a novel literary phenomenon. In the nineteenth century, however, readers considered both Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn as works of literature equally for children and adults; only later was the former relegated to the category of "boys' books" while the latter, even as it was canonized, came frequently to be regarded as unsuitable for young readers. Adults -- women and men -- wept over Little Women. And America's most prestigious literary journals regularly reviewed books written for both children and their parents. This egalitarian approach to children's literature changed with the emergence of literary studies as a scholarly discipline at the turn of the twentieth century. Academics considered children's books an inferior literature and beneath serious consideration. In Kiddie Lit, Beverly Lyon Clark explores the marginalization of children's literature in America -- and its recent possible reintegration -- both within the academy and by the mainstream critical establishment. Tracing the reception of works by Mark Twain, Louisa May Alcott, Lewis Carroll, Frances Hodgson Burnett, L. Frank Baum, Walt Disney, and J. K. Rowling, Clark reveals fundamental shifts in the assessment of the literary worth of books beloved by both children and adults, whether written for boys or girls. While uncovering the institutional underpinnings of this transition, Clark also attributes it to changing American attitudes toward childhood itself, a cultural resistance to the intrinsic value of childhood expressed through sentimentality, condescension, and moralizing. Clark's engaging and enlightening study of the critical disregard for children's books since the end of the nineteenth century -- which draws on recent scholarship in gender, cultural, and literary studies -- offers provocative new insights into the history of both children's literature and American literature in general, and forcefully argues that the books our children read and love demand greater respect.

Xanthippic Dialogues

Product : Xanthippic Dialogues
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In Plato's dialogues, an idealized Socrates expounds the ideas for which Plato will, until the end of history, be famous. The world of Forms; the ideal Republic with its totalitarian masterplan; the tribute to Eros, god of love (or at least of homosexual love); the promise of the soul's salvation -- all this has come down to us in the distinctive tone of voice of Plato's teacher. But how much of it did Socrates believe? Were Plato's contemporaries really taken in? And what lay behind his philosophy, from which the real world of men and women was so rigorously excluded? Until the discovery of the Xanthippic Inquiries, we had no answer to those questions. Now at last the real Plato is revealed to us, by the women whom he banished from his arguments. In this brilliant and witty expose, the mask of abstraction is lifted, to reveal the truth that lies beneath. And the truth is Xanthippe: wife of Socrates, teacher of Aristotle, and Founding Mother of the Western world. This is a book that no feminist can afford to ignore.

The Reluctant Parting: How the New Testament's Jewish Writers Created a Christian Book

Product : The Reluctant Parting: How the New Testament's Jewish Writers Created a Christian Book
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Now in paperback, The Reluctant Parting is a poignant look at the New Testament exploring the forgotten question of intention and identity in Christianity's core writings- How did Jesus's followers stop being Jewish without meaning to? While other books have demonstrated the "Jewishness" of Jesus, none have grappled with the implications of the New Testament authors' relationship to their own Judaism. The Christian New Testament has led a life never imagined by its Jewish sectarian authors. Through lively and accessible scholarship, Galambush reveals the anguish of the early Christians as they first struggled with, and then left behind, the larger Jewish community. She illuminates the human drama of the split between Jews and Christians, revealing a deep loss at the heart of Christian tradition that continues to cry out for reconciliation between Christianity and the Judaism it so painfully left. Not just another well-credentialed scholar, Galambush is uniquely positioned as both a convert to Judaism and a former associate pastor to identify what is at stake for Jews as well as for Christians. The book's deeply empathic portrayal of the early Christians' struggle with their Jewish identity will allow it to serve as a resource for Jews and Christians alike.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Doo Dads are singing "My Girl" on the radio and fourteen-year-old Gary is studying pictures of naked women, aware that Grandpa is looking down from heaven wondering how the boy turned out so badly. He has never so much as kissed a girl, except his rebellious cousin Kate, a sophisticate of seventeen who knows about "The New Yorker" and also how to swear and exhale smoke rings. But this is a summer of change for Gary: he fights back against his bullying born-again sister and his tyrannical teacher, and most significantly, he receives an Underwood typewriter-a typewriter that will help Gary believe he can become a writer. With his trademark gift for treading "a line delicate as a cobweb between satire and sentiment" ("The Cleveland Plain Dealer"), Keillor's touching and funny novel brilliantly captures a newly minted America and delivers an unforgettable comedy about the universal aspects of adolescence-from first loves to fear and fascination with bodily functions.

Crisis on Campus: A Bold Plan for Reforming Our Colleges and Universities

Product : Crisis on Campus: A Bold Plan for Reforming Our Colleges and Universities
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Aprovocative look at the troubled state of American higher education and a passionately argued and learned manifesto for its future. In a widely read and hugely controversial 2009 "New York Times "op-ed piece, Mark C. Taylor (chair of the Department of Religion at Columbia University and former professor at Williams College) proposed sweeping changes for our colleges and universities. Now Taylor expands and refines the ideas presented in that piece--wildly unpopular with most faculty, but wildly popular with students and parents. Taylor's suggestions are both thought-provoking and rigorous: from ending tenure, re-envisioning departments, and encouraging greater cooperation within the university to emphasizing teaching rather than increasingly rarified research and including the use of online networks to connect students worldwide. He aims to accommodate the students of today while anticipating those of tomorrow, remaining attuned to schools' financial woes and the skyrocketing cost of education. In the end, Taylor imagines a system as improvisational, as responsive to new technologies, and as innovative as are the young members of the iPod and Facebook generation. In "Crisis on Campus, "we have a bold and necessary catalyst for a long overdue national debate.

The Arlington Reader: Contexts and Connections

Product : The Arlington Reader: Contexts and Connections
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Because textbooks tend to uproot readings from the conversations that prompted them, students are often left without much of the original context that would help them understand and interpret a text. Those additional voices are important, particularly when students are working with complex material. "The Arlington Reader, " Second Edition, offers class-proven readings and fresh and exciting new selections along with many of those voices brought back into the conversation. Each of the 9 thematic chapters includes essays plus related material such as reviews, response essays, quotations, photographs, and interviews. For instance, N. Scott Momaday's "The Way to Rainy Mountain" is followed by photos of Momaday and Rainy Mountain, excerpts from Momaday's other writings, and a piece by Paula Gunn Allen. This allows students to get a sense of the context from which these essays sprung and to make thematic connections of their own. It also brings fresh perspectives to instructors. In addition, each chapter includes linked readings in order to show students the importance of learning to distinguish and relate ideas, all at a very affordable low price.

Description : By the Newbery Honor-winning author of "Shabanu" On a day when fish leap among the stars and birds soar beneath the waters, a remarkable girl named Parvati is born in a village in the South of India. As she grows, she becomes known for the peculiar events that seem to spring from beneath her dancing feet, and is widely thought to have supernatural powers. When a great master of Indian classical dance comes to see for himself, he recognizes in Parvati a rare talent and invites her to study with him at his gurukulam in the city of Madras. There she commits herself to a rigorous and solitary program of study, dance, and devotion. But when she meets a boy with his own extraordinary powers, her life is turned upside down, and she must question the one thing of which she has always been most sure - that she was born to dance. In this powerful novel rich with mysticism, Suzanne Fisher Staples tells the poignant story of a strong girl who refuses to squander her magical gifts in the face of life's ordinary but perplexing mysteries.

Beyond Malthus: Nineteen Dimensions of the Population Challenge

Product : Beyond Malthus: Nineteen Dimensions of the Population Challenge
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Human demands are pressing up against more and more of the Earth's limits. This book from the Worldwatch Institute examines the impacts of population growth on global resources and services, including food, fresh water, fisheries, jobs, education, income, and health. Despite the current hype of a "birth dearth" in parts of Europe and Japan, the fact remains that human numbers are projected to increase by over 3 billion by 2050. Rapidly growing nations are likely to outstrip the carrying capacity of their natural support systems. Governments worn down by several decades of rapid population growth often cannot mobilize the resources necessary to cope with emerging threats such as new diseases, food and water shortages, and mass unemployment. Already, in several African nations, hunger, disease, and social disintegration are leading to rising death rates, checking the rapid growth of population. Either nations with surging populations will quickly shift to smaller families or nature will impose its own, less humane limits to growth. As the world enters the new millennium, no challenge is perhaps so urgent as the need to quickly reduce population growth. Pakistan's population is projected to increase from 148 million to 357 million, surpassing that of the United States before 2050. Zimbabwe, Botswana, Zambia, Namibia, and Swaziland, where over one-fifth of the adult population is infected with HIV, will likely reach population stability shortly after the year 2000, as AIDS-related deaths offset soaring birth rates.

Description : A satire of traditional Christmas stories and noir, "The Fat Man" makes the perfect gift for the literary-minded. A hardboiled elf is framed for murder in a North Pole world that plays reindeer games for keeps, and where favorite holiday characters live complex lives beyond December. Fired from his longtime job as captain of the Coal Patrol, two-foot-three inch 1,300-year-old elf Gumdrop Coal is angry. He's one of Santa's original elves, inspired by the fat man's vision to bring joy to children on that one special day each year. But somewhere along the way things went sour for Gumdrop. Maybe it was delivering one too many lumps of coal for the Naughty List. Maybe it's the conspiracy against Christmas that he's starting to sense down every chimney. Either way, North Pole disillusionment is nothing new: Some elves brood with a bottle of nog, trying to forget their own wish list. Some get better. Some get bitter. Gumdrop Coal wants revenge. Justice is the only thing he knows, and so he decides to give a serious wakeup call to parents who can't keep their vile offspring from landing on the Naughty List. But when one parent winds up dead, his eye shot out with a Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model BB gun, Gumdrop Coal must learn who framed him and why. Along the way he'll escape the life-sucking plants of the Mistletoe Forrest, battle the infamous Tannenbomb Giant, and survive a close encounter with twelve very angry drummers and their violent friends. The horrible truth lurking behind the gingerbread doors of Kringle Town could spell the end of Christmas-and of the fat man himself. Holly Jolly

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Willard F. Harley, Jr. is the highly successful author of many books on marriage, including the best-selling His Needs, Her Needs. In his latest book, Buyers, Renters, and Freeloaders, he turns his attention for the first time to singles who are tired of revolving-door romances and are looking for a lasting, meaningful relationship. The key to starting a successful, lifelong relationship, according to Dr. Harley, lies in discovering whether you (and your partner) are Freeloaders, Renters, or Buyers. Much like freeloading roommates who won't pay their fair share, relationship freeloaders are unwilling to put much effort into caring for someone. Renters are people who view a relationship as tentative and are only willing to provide care as long as terms are fair or until they find something better. The ideal partner, a Buyer, is someone who regards a relationship as he or she does a home-permanent and exclusive. Buyers, Renters, and Freeloaders shows readers how to measure their Romantic Relationship Attitude and offers practical advice for transforming Freeloaders and Renters into fully committed Buyers. It also includes a Personal History Questionnaire to help readers better understand themselves and their partner and Four Guidelines for Successful Negotiation to assist couples in maintaining Buyer behavior. Together these tools will help singles create a satisfying, exclusive, and permanent romantic union destined to last a lifetime.

Global AIDS: Myths and Facts: Tools for Fighting the AIDS Pandemic

Product : Global AIDS: Myths and Facts: Tools for Fighting the AIDS Pandemic
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : AIDS is the most devastating communicable disease in history, and structures of poverty and injustice are magnifying the crisis in underresourced countries. More than 36 million people are infected with HIV/AIDS-the vast majority of them in the poor world, or in poor and marginalized communities within wealthy countries. And since AIDS was first recognized in the early 1980s, 13 million children have been orphaned and 22 million people have died from the disease. Irwin and Millen, co-authors of the critically "praised Dying for Growth: Global Inequality and the Health of the Poor, " demonstrate that it is morally imperative and practically feasible to control the spread of AIDS by overturning common myths about treatment and prevention. For example, it is often argued that ordinary citizens in rich countries can do little to fight AIDS in poor counties. But Irwin and Millen show how individual activists, students, health providers, and members of international health organizations have helped to play pivotal roles in lowering drug prices and securing increased funding for vaccine development. Activism and education by groups like ACT UP, Student Global AIDS Campaign, and various religious organizations is forcing national and international leaders to take greater responsibility for the global AIDS crisis. Features a comprehensive resource guide. Illustrated with photographs.Alexander Irwin is an assistant professor of religious studies at Amherst College. Joyce Millen is Director of Research for the Institute for Health and Social Justice. Irwin and Millen are co-authors "of Dying for Growth: Global Inequality and the Health of the Poor. "James Orbinski, president of Doctors Without Borders, "called Dying for Growth" "deeply intelligent, thoroughly researched-a must-read for all citizens and activists committed to meaningful change."

The Winning Spirit: 16 Timeless Principles That Drive Performance Excellence

Product : The Winning Spirit: 16 Timeless Principles That Drive Performance Excellence
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Widely considered the best NFL quarterback of all time, Joe Montana personifies performance excellence and personal integrity both on and off the field. Yet the word most closely associated with him is not "winner"-it's "leader." Since his retirement a decade ago, he has become a popular motivational speaker sought out by corporations nationwide, speaking to capacity audiences as large as twenty thousand. Now making his message available to a broader audience, Montana teams up with performance coach Tom Mitchell to extend to all areas of life the truths of success on the field. The Winning Spirit shows that ultimately performance excellence is fueled by personal integrity. This is the key to winning the inner game, which is about accountability and attitude, as well as desire, enthusiasm, effort, and appreciation. For example: - Know What You Want: First, identify goals, then turn clarity into action. - Strive for Excellence: Surpass expectations and reach new heights - Fail Fast and Move On: Take chances, learn from mistakes, and keep pressing forward-don't let fear or regret take you out of the game. - Remember the "I" in Team: Make yourself the priority-because intense preparation is the individual responsibility of each member of the team. - Welcome Pressure: Want to be the best? Work with or compete against the best - Walk Like a Champ: Your life is not just about achieving success, but also about having a purpose and creating significance. With great stories and practical strategies, Joe Montana and Tom Mitchell give us hard-won advice based on years of success. This timely and timeless message is nothing less than a contemporary motivational classic.

Helen's Eyes: A Photobiography of Annie Sullivan, Helen Keller's Teacher

Product : Helen's Eyes: A Photobiography of Annie Sullivan, Helen Keller's Teacher
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The epic story of Annie Sullivan's perseverance and triumph in the face of hardship will enthrall readers of every age. This pioneering teacher overcame disability and misfortune before achieving her success as one of the most famous educators of all time. This is the inspiring photobiography of Anne Mansfield Sullivan, a woman born into a life of daunting disadvantage and social obstacle. She grew up poor, with little education, the child of struggling Irish immigrants. By the age of eight, Annie was almost blind because of untreated trachoma. Following her mother's death, the young girl entered an almshouse, where she spent four years among the most wretched of society's outcasts. Her inquiring intellect and determination helped her escape this bleak detention, and she was sent to the Perkins School for the Blind. There, at the age of 14, her education began, and her lively mind soon blossomed. After graduation, she was hired as a teacher for Helen Keller, a six-year-old girl who was blind and deaf due to illness. With patience and compassion, Annie reached into the dark, silent world of the little girl, opening her mind and soul to life's beauty. She became "Helen's eyes." Because of her inspired breakthroughs and accomplishments with Helen, Annie was soon known as the "Miracle Worker." Annie and Helen spent the rest of their lives together--two complex women with feisty personalities who achieved international acclaim. Marfe Ferguson Delano's evocative account of teacher and student breaking down barriers to enjoy the wonders of intellectual discovery is a profoundly moving story.

It's 1889, and the Cherokees are being moved onto reservations within the Oklahoma District. The remainder of the land promised to them decades ago is being opened for white settlers to homestead. Of course, the Cherokees are unhappy. Some are outraged and want to stand and fight-despite Britt's warning that they will be punished swiftly and severely by the U.S. Army. Before long, white settlers converge from all directions. Lee and Kathy Belden and their two children come from Texas, where they lost their farm after years of drought. Martha Ackerman, newly widowed, arrives from Kansas with her three young children and her parents.

The Indian Clerk

Product : The Indian Clerk
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The brilliant new novel from one of our most respected writers--his most ambitious and accessible to date. On a January morning in 1913, G. H. Hardy--eccentric, charismatic and, at thirty-seven, already considered the greatest British mathematician of his age--receives in the mail a mysterious envelope covered with Indian stamps. Inside he finds a rambling letter from a self-professed mathematical genius who claims to be on the brink of solving the most important unsolved mathematical problem of all time. Some of his Cambridge colleagues dismiss the letter as a hoax, but Hardy becomes convinced that the Indian clerk who has written it--Srinivasa Ramanujan--deserves to be taken seriously. Aided by his collaborator, Littlewood, and a young don named Neville who is about to depart for Madras with his wife, Alice, he determines to learn more about the mysterious Ramanujan and, if possible, persuade him to come to Cambridge. It is a decision that will profoundly affect not only his own life, and that of his friends, but the entire history of mathematics. Based on the remarkable true story of the strange and ultimately tragic relationship between an esteemed British mathematician and an unknown--and unschooled--mathematical genius, and populated with such luminaries such as D. H. Lawrence, Bertrand Russell, and Ludwig Wittgenstein, "The Indian Clerk" takes this extraordinary slice of history and transforms it into an emotional and spell-binding story about the fragility of human connection and our need to find order in the world.

There's a Hair in My Dirt!: A Worm's Story

Product : There's a Hair in My Dirt!: A Worm's Story
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Once upon a time, in a place far away, lived a man named Gary Larson who used to draw cartoons. It was a cartoon that appeared for many years in daily newspapers and was loved by millions. (And was confusing to millions more.) But one day he stopped. Gary went into hiding. He made a couple of short films. He played his guitar. He threw sticks for his dogs. They threw some back. Yet Gary was restless. He couldn't sleep nights. Something haunted him. (Besides Gramps.) Something that would return him to his roots in biology, drawing and dementia -- a tale called "There's a Hair in My Dirt A Worm's Story." It begins a few inches underground, when a young worm, during a typical family dinner, discovers there's a hair in his plate of dirt. He becomes rather upset, not just about his tainted meal but about his entire miserable, wormy life. This, in turn, spurs his father to tell him a story -- a story to inspire the children of invertebrates everywhere...

Oath Breaker

Product : Oath Breaker
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Torak circled the fire and Thiazzi came after him: slowly, cracking his whip, playing with his prey as a lynx plays with a lemming. Torak was exhausted. He wasn't going to last much longer. When he was outcast, Torak was the hunted one. Nine moons later he becomes the hunter, when he vows to avenge the killing of one of his closest friends. Racked by guilt and grief, he follows the killer into the Deep Forest, where the World Spirit stalks the hidden valleys as a tall man with the antlers of a stag. But there is a rottenness at the heart of the Forest, for its clans have succumbed to the lies of the Soul-Eaters. Here Torak must face fire, war, and overwhelming evil. The fifth book in the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series, "Oath Breaker" is a story about keeping promises and the true cost of vengeance.

My View from the Corner

Product : My View from the Corner
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Dundee is one of the greatest innovators in the annals of the sweet science...guiding world champions as diverse in gladiatorial gifts and mind-sets as Carmen Basilio, Willie Pastrano, Luis Rodriguez, Sugar Ray Leonard, George Foreman (in his comeback) and, of course, Muhammad Ali...Bert Randolph Sugar has superbly captured Dundee's unique diction...by the end the reader will know precisely what it is like to listen to the Bill Walsh of boxing hold court on the exotic art of the cornerman."--"The New York Times" Angelo Dundee has lived a half-century of boxing history. During that period he trained a record-breaking fifteen world champions and countless top contenders--wiping away their sweat and blood and instilling whatever it took to win. "My View from the Corner" is his story in his own words. It is also the story of the legendary ring warriors he has forged into champions, including all-time greats Muhammad Ali, "Sugar" Ray Leonard, and George Foreman, as well as champs such as Willie Pastrano and Carmen Basilio. But you won't just read about prize fighters. Dundee can't tell his tale without including an amazing cast of characters who could only exist in the larger-than-life world of professional boxing. You'll find engrossing stories involving everyone from sportscaster Howard Cosell to artist LeRoy Nieman to mobster Frank Costello. Muhammad Ali also contributes a foreword of his own--delivering his personal insights on Dundee--the man, the friend, and the boxing trainer. The veteran trainer gives you a ringside seat and the inside scoop into what really happened during such classic sports moments as: The Ali-Liston rematch, which even today many believe was "fixed" The Rumble in the Jungle (Ali vs. Foreman) where Dundee was accused of loosening the ring ropes in order to let Ali perform his now famous "rope-a-dope" The second Leonard-Duran fight known for Duran uttering the infamous ""no mas""--Dundee reveals Duran never actually spoke those words Foreman vs. Moorer where George Foreman made history by becoming the oldest man to win the Heavyweight Championship Leonard vs. Hagler, which ended with one of the most controversial decisions in boxing history For the first time, Dundee also candidly discusses his feelings about Ali's conversion to Islam, the mob and its influence on boxing, training Russell Crowe for "Cinderella Man" (which Dundee also appeared in), the psychology of training fighters, and much more. "My View from the Corner" is filled with the depth and insight that can only come from a man who truly loves what he does . . . and is unquestionably the best in the world at it.
