Book Excerpt :

Kate Carter is an ordinary eighteen-year-old. Other than a somewhat obsessive fondness for iced tea and complete swearing-off of boys ever since a blind date when she was fifteen (don’t ask), she’s about as normal as they come. At least until she steps into art class. There, she’s surrounded by pencils, paper, paint and her stoic table partner, Silent Nathan. Which is fine with her—no guys, remember? When her new art teacher starts a series on how to use art in the everyday world, Kate starts getting excited. And it’s not about the electrical engineer career her dad has envisioned for her. When the “real-life” sketching leads to Kate accidentally sketching a man wanted for first-degree murder, and when her sketch shows up on the news, Kate becomes an instant celebrity. But just as she’s learning to enjoy her fame, the man she helped catch escapes from jail. Suddenly, Kate’s life is far from normal.

Book Short Summary:

Americans were shocked and outraged to see chaos unfold at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. The melee shut down plans by some Republican lawmakers to object to Congress’s official certification of the 2020 presidential election results. Democrats, the news media, and many leading Republicans immediately blamed the roughly four-hour disturbance on President Trump. The president “incited an insurrection,” the American pubic was told. It prompted a second impeachment trial of Donald Trump after he left office. But one year later, the original narrative of what happened that day has crumbled while hundreds of Americans have been swept up in an unprecedented investigation led by Joe Biden’s Justice Department to punish them for their involvement in the January 6th protest. The public has been misled—and flat-out lied to—about a number of aspects related to that day. This book exposes them all.

We spend countless hours training our dogs, but how often do we consider what they have to teach us? “Our canine companions aren’t just our best friends,” explains Tami Simon. “Sometimes they can also be carriers of a special medicine and the wisdom lessons we most need.” The Dharma of Dogs shares the reflections of spiritual teachers and writers who have found a source of deep truth and practical wisdom beneath the furry surface of our four-legged friends.

Book Short Summary:

Craft Vibrant Characters and an Intimate Reading Experience The key to excellent fiction lies in its characters: the unforgettable protagonists, antagonists, and secondary characters who populate the world of your story. Understanding and effectively using point of view allows you to write a powerful narrative that draws readers in and engages them with characters in a meaningful way. Through a blend of practical instruction, useful examples, and helpful exercises, Writing the Intimate Character shows you how to create the experience of living through a character rather than just reading about one. Inside, you'll learn: • The functions and benefits of first-person, third-person intimate, omniscient, and second-person points of view. • How to apply character cues--specific behaviors, sensory perceptions, dialogue, and visual imagery--to develop a realistic protagonist and secondary cast. • The surface and subset feelings that get to the root of your character’s emotions. • How different viewpoints affect the story you want to tell. Writing the Intimate Character helps you craft a novel in which readers can experience your characters' senses, dive inside their minds, and truly feel their emotions. "Writing the Intimate Character, the latest engaging guide by Jordan Rosenfeld, is a rich resource we'll all be learning from for the rest of our lives. 'Does the term point of view seem too dull and dry?' she asks. 'Try intimacy instead.' And then she shows us how, with diverse examples and wise observation. Now that I have Jordan's take on how to create a character from the inside out, I'm eager to get to it. You, too, will find this book that inspiring." --Rebecca Lawton, author of Sacrament: Homage to a River and other books "Writing the Intimate Character provides insights, examples, and exercises that will be useful not only to those who are new to writing fiction but to those, like myself, who are coming back to it after a break. Jordan Rosenfeld's explanation of how narrative voice works with point of view and other literary elements to create characters that readers care deeply about is clear and revelatory. The book can be worked through methodically or dipped into as needed. It's a useful tool for getting the gears of imagination working or for jump-starting and fine-tuning a work in process." --Zoe Zolbrod, author of the novel Currency and the memoir The Telling "Jordan Rosenfeld has a keen insight into how to construct characters who are truly lived-in. With intelligence and wit, she walks you through every element of powerful characterization, from selecting your POV to demonstrating character growth throughout your story. Whether you're new to fiction or a more experienced writer, put your trust in Jordan Rosenfeld; she'll help you tell a better story." --Laura Bogart, freelance writer and novelist

When a girl falls in love with the man she believes can give her the traditional life she desires, she sacrifices everything to make her dreams come true. Brad has it all. He is handsome, popular, and charismatic. Who could resist his many charms? In desperate pursuit of the normal life she believes Brad can give to her, she tries her best to be everything he wants— a devoted wife, lover, and mother—but it is never enough. For a decade, she devotes every moment of every day to his happiness. Slowly, she realizes that in addition to the loss of her youth, she has also sacrificed much more to maintain the illusion of a perfect marriage. After drastically altering her life just to be near him, she starts to see through his gossamer-thin promises. But try as she might to hold her head up as evidence of Brad’s moral defects mounts, her sense of self weakens. Unaware of how deeply she is being damaged and how blatantly she has been deceived, she must make a choice. Will she abandon her fantasy of the traditional nuclear family so she can reclaim her long-forgotten self-worth? Or will she continue to languish at the hands of a toxic man? She is a simple girl who just wanted something better. And despite it all, her journey is one filled with surprisingly sharp humor, raw honesty— and optimism.

Book Short Summary:

Mixed martial arts (MMA)—unarmed fighting games permitting techniques derived from a variety of martial arts and combat sports— has exploded from the fringes of sport into a worldwide phenomenon, a sport as controversial as it is compelling. This is the first book to pay MMA the serious philosophical attention it deserves. With contributions from leading international scholars of the philosophy of sport and martial arts, the book explores topics such as whether MMA qualifies as a martial art, the differences between MMA and the traditional martial arts, the aesthetic dimensions of MMA, the limits of consent and choice in MMA and whether MMA can promote moral virtues. It also explores cutting-edge practical and ethical topics, including the role of gender in MMA, and the question of whether trans athletes should be allowed to compete in the women’s divisions. The contributors to this anthology take down, ground and pound, and submit many essential questions about this fascinating recent development in the culture of sport and spectacle. This is important reading for anybody with an interest in combat sports, martial arts, or the philosophy, sociology, culture or history of sport.

Book Short Summary:

While there are hundreds of books on leadership, no other book links epidemiological concepts to leadership. Epidemiologists look for treatments by matching the determinants to the disease.

The book includes over 550 references on leadership, psychology, epidemiology, management, systems theory, and others, as well as over 60 case studies analyzed to illustrate points about leadership and determinants. Additionally, each chapter includes a list of key terms and concepts, discussion items, and highlights of lessons learned. At the end of the book, there is a section on leadership and motivation theories and models, as well as a section that provides leadership style surveys and assessments that can help readers identify their leadership style, while also becoming aware of what changes in leadership style can improve workplace climate.

Book Short Summary:

"It's happening this second. Scientists are re-imagining and re-engineering the world forever. With brutal honesty and engaging story-telling, Michael Guillen gives us a clear-eyed look at a future that is already here. Consider this unsettling, brilliantly written, must-read book your official wake up call." -- ERIC METAXAS, #1 national bestselling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy "Michael Guillen has tackled an important subject in The End of Life as We Know It... This book is a sobering look at where we could be headed. A fascinating read." -- DAVID LIMBAUGH, bestselling author of Jesus is Risen and The True Jesus In all aspects of life, humans are crossing lines of no return. Modern science is leading us into vast uncharted territory—far beyond the invention of nuclear weapons or taking us to the moon.Today, in labs all over the world, scientists are performing experiments that threaten to fundamentally alter the practical character and ethical color of our everyday lives. In The End of Life as We Know It: Ominous News from the Frontiers of Science, bestselling author and Emmy award winning science journalist Michael Guillen takes a penetrating look at how the scientific community is pushing the boundaries of morality, including: • Scientists who detached the head of a Russian man from his crippled, diseased body, and stitching it onto a healthy new donated body. • Fertility experiments aimed at allowing designer babies to be conceived with the DNA from three or more biological parents. • The unprecedented politicization of science – for example, in the global discussion about climate change that is pitting “deniers” against “alarmists” and inspiring Draconian legislation, censorship, and legal prosecutions. • The integration of Artificial Intelligence into communications and the economy. The End of Life as We Know It takes us into labratories and boardrooms where these troubling advances are taking place and asks the question no scientists seem to be asking: What does this mean for the future of humanity? PREVIOUS PRAISE FOR MICHAEL GUILLEN: “Guillen succeeds triumphantly…He writes with extraordinary grace and clarity.” — CHRISTOPHER LEHMANN-HAUPT, The New York Times “Guillen knows how to tell a story.” — Wall Street Journal “Michael Guillen is ‘Winsomely brilliant.’” — ERIC METAXAS, #1 national bestselling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy “Michael Guillen bridges the seeming gap between science and faith better than anyone I know.” — CAL THOMAS, Syndicated and USA Today columnist/Fox News contributor

Book Short Summary:

“Some people won’t believe any of this story. You might be one of them. But every single word is true. Tony DiMarco does catch a murderer, solve a mystery, and find a treasure—all in the first few days after he moves, unexpectedly, to 13 Hangmen’s Court in Boston. The fact that he also turns thirteen at the same time is not a coincidence.” So begins the story of Tony and his friends—five 13-year-old boys, all of whom are living in the same house in the same attic bedroom but at different times in history! None are ghosts, all are flesh and blood, and somehow all have come together in the attic room, visible only to one another. And all are somehow linked to a murder, a mystery, and a treasure. Praise for 13 Hangmen"Fascinating tale. Ghostly fun in old Boston."--Kirkus Reviews "The book’s design nicely differentiates Tony’s story, set in 2009, from the past narratives. Recommend this engaging historical mystery to readers who devoured Dan Gutman’s Baseball Card Adventures series and are ready for a longer, more complex adventure." --Booklist "Corriveau merrily ransacks historical episodes and figures (e.g., the Great Molasses Flood, the Underground Railroad, Boston mayor John F. “Honey Fitz” Fitzgerald) and spins, twists, and manipulates their stories to advance the DiMarco family mystery. The result is a novel that agilely balances humor and tension." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "This is an exceptionally good story, with a wry, humorous tone that has particular boy appeal. It covers baseball, history, sibling rivalry, girls, and mystery, and folds in the space-time continuum." --School Library Journal

Book Short Summary:

Buckle up for a double dose of Bodhi King! Fans of the Bodhi King forensic thriller series will enjoy this two-book value set featuring the cerebral Buddhist pathologist by USA Today Bestselling Author Melissa F. Miller. COLD PATH (Book 5) When a corpse surfaces during an archaeological dig, Bodhi King's in the wrong place at the wrong time. Bodhi tags along as his girlfriend's plus-one at a convention of small-town police chiefs. While Bette is learning the latest in law enforcement advancements, he plans to meditate in the resort's Japanese garden and hike its mountain trails. Instead, he finds himself helping an archaeology professor determine how, why, and when someone buried a woman near the cabin of a post-Civil War sharecropper. As the circumstances around the dead woman's demise come to light, the secrets of the past threaten to unleash destruction in the present. The cold case heats up to a boiling point when his old flame joins the team and a murderer strikes. FLIGHT PATH (Book 6): The cerebral and principled forensic pathologist Dr. Bodhi King confronts his most perplexing case yet. When Bodhi King finds the first dead bird on the beach, he chalks it up to natural causes. Then he finds a second. And a third. He’s camping on the Eastern Shore to re-center himself and recommit to Buddhism, not to play veterinary pathologist. But his tradition values all lives equally, and there appears to be an avian serial killer on the loose. Or is there? Bodhi volunteers to uncover what’s killing the birds. What he discovers leads him to an abandoned military bunker. There, a dysfunctional family feud, a counterfeiter of communications equipment, a dying man, and a cache of seventy-five-year-old crystals provide the answer he seeks—and put his life in danger. Cut off from the outside world, Bodhi pieces together the puzzle. But in order to bring the truth to light and save himself, he’ll have to reconcile his quest for nonattachment with his very real need for help and decide just how committed he is to walking the Noble Eightfold Path.

Book Short Summary:

What if you could become a witch? When my parents shipped me off to an all-girls boarding school, I thought I was in for a boring junior year. The last thing I expected was discovering magic and a secret coven of witches. Although I’d wanted to lie low at my new school, I couldn’t deny how tempting it was to join the witches. As I got more involved in the coven, I discovered something else about myself: I had feelings for my roommate, another girl, for the first time in my life. Suddenly, learning magic didn’t seem so scary. But nothing exists in a vacuum, and along with becoming a witch, I learned our coven must go up against a witch-hunter. Not only that, but he’s the headmaster of the boys’ school across town. Now, I have to juggle my feelings for my roommate, my complicated new friendships, my status as a witch… and schoolwork. Maybe this year won’t be as boring as I thought. If you’re a fan of books by Jen L. Grey, K.F. Breene, and Kelly St. Claire, you’re sure to love this urban fantasy.

After closing a time loop fiasco in The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya (Vol. 5), our protagonist Kyon is ready to start a new year with a blank slate--no time travel, no apocalyptic worries, and maybe some actual peace and quiet with the SOS Brigade, a club comprised of his high school's most extraordinary students.

Book Short Summary:

Pete Hodge returns with another lively tale as he faces unforeseen challenges in this ever-changing world. The year is 2011, the real estate market has collapsed, and he can no longer support himself as a small-town dirt lawyer. Desperate for a steady paycheck, he finds work as a foreclosure attorney, persuading himself that he can become the human face of a heartless bank. But Petes new employer, an erratic narcissist who is pathologically obsessed with money, has hired him for the sole purpose of generating fees. Churning out three lawsuits each week, driving hither and yon for hearings and trials, Pete soon finds himself overwhelmed by a job that brings him no joy. Then the bank unwittingly engages him to foreclose against a neighbor, giving him an opportunity to do justice while also pushing back against his boss. Undeterred by the obvious betrayal of his clients interest, Pete files a deeply flawed lawsuit in hopes of giving his neighbor more time to save his home. Shortly thereafter, he discovers that his avaricious employer may be engaged in a more deplorable violation of the professions ethical rules. From that point, it becomes a race to see which one of them can get the other disbarred first . . . and the new boss has a considerable head start. Written in a tone best described as affable outrage, Coin of the Realm portrays a further skirmish in the ongoing battle between the shearers and the shorn.

Steven Lubet shows exactly how the tactics of the poker table can be adapted to litigation, negotiation, and virtually every aspect of law practice.

A lovable con woman and a disgraced detective team up to find a redneck reality TV star in this raucous and razor-sharp new novel from Carl Hiaasen, the bestselling author of Bad Monkey. Merry Mansfield, the eponymous Razor Girl, specializes in kidnapping for the mob. Her preferred method is rear-ending her targets and asking them for a ride. Her latest mark is Martin Trebeaux, owner of a private beach renourishment company who has delivered substandard sand to a mob hotel. But there's just one problem: Razor Girl hits the wrong guy. Instead, she ends up with Lane Coolman, talent manager for Buck Nance, the star of a reality TV show about a family of Cajun rooster farmers. Buck Nance, left to perform standup at a Key West bar without his handler, makes enough off-color jokes to incite a brawl, then flees for his life and vanishes. Now a routine promotional appearance has become a missing persons case. And Andrew Yancy, disgraced detective-turned-health inspector, is on the job. That the Razor Girl may be the key to Yancy's future will be as surprising to him as anything else he encounters along the way—including the giant Gambian pouched rats that are haunting his restaurant inspections.
