  • To Whom it May Concern, It was easy to call us forbidden and harder to call us soulmates. Yet I believed we were both. Forbidden soulmates. When I arrived to Edgewood, Wisconsin I didn't plan to find him. I didn't plan to stumble into Joe's bar and have Daniel's music stir up my emotions. I had no clue that his voice would make my hurts forget their own sorrow. I had no idea that my happiness would remember its own bliss. When I started senior year at my new school, I wasn't prepared to call him Mr. Daniels, but sometimes life happens at the wrong time for all the right reasons. Our love story wasn't only about the physical connection. It was about family. It was about loss. It was about being alive. It was silly. It was painful. It was mourning. It was laughter. It was ours. And for those reasons alone, I would never apologize for loving Mr. Daniels. -Ashlyn Jennings

  • Four hundred years ago an alien menace attacked a peaceful US colony and sent humanity speeding down a new evolutionary path. Nine people survived, but they would never be the same. Their modified DNA was passed on to their descendants and meta-humans with superpowers were born. Now a reluctant hero is thrust into a collision course with the aliens as those changes threaten to end that path with an earth-shattering conclusion. After a violent plane crash, Wolff Kingsley finds himself surrounded by meta-humans, alien technology, and mind-bending foes. Unwillingly recruited as a member of Diamond Justice, Wolff faces an uncertain future and fears a return to his past. He struggles to understand his friendship with a remnant of alien technology known as Glip-2, his concern for a young girl with an interest in him, and his growing love for a mysterious meta-human woman who may be tied to the origin of the threat. After a strange storm terrorizes a major city, Wolff must decide whether he will help Diamond solve the centuries old mystery and save millions of innocent lives before time runs out or flee the people he has grown to care about.

  • Superheroes soar in this promising debut—and they’re kids! Twelve-year-old Daniel, the new kid in town, soon learns the truth about his nice—but odd—new friends: one can fly, another can turn invisible, yet another controls electricity. Incredible. The superkids use their powers to secretly do good in the town, but they’re haunted by the fact that the moment they turn thirteen, their abilities will disappear—along with any memory that they ever had them. Is a memory-stealing supervillain sapping their powers? The answers lie in a long-ago meteor strike, a World War II–era comic book (Fantastic Futures, starring the first superhero, Johnny Noble), the green-flamed Witch Fire, a hidden Shroud cave, and—possibly, unbelievably—“powerless” regular-kid Daniel himself. Superhero kids meet comic book mystery in this action-filled debut about the true meaning of a hero.

In a series of online posts, Parker H., a young psychiatrist, chronicles the harrowing account of his time working at a dreary mental hospital in New England. Through this internet message board, Parker hopes to communicate with the world his effort to cure one bewildering patient. We learn, as Parker did on his first day at the hospital, of the facility's most difficult, profoundly dangerous case--a forty-year-old man who was originally admitted to the hospital at age six. This patient has no known diagnosis. His symptoms seem to evolve over time. Every person who has attempted to treat him has been driven to madness or suicide. Desperate and fearful, the hospital's directors keep him strictly confined and allow minimal contact with staff for their own safety, convinced that releasing him would unleash catastrophe on the outside world. Parker, brilliant and overconfident, takes it upon himself to discover what ails this mystery patient and finally cure him. But from his first encounter with the mystery patient, things spiral out of control, and, facing a possibility beyond his wildest imaginings, Parker is forced to question everything he thought he knew. Fans of Sarah Pinborough's Behind Her Eyes and Paul Tremblay's The Cabin at the End of the World will be riveted by Jasper DeWitt's astonishing debut.

    The Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man

  • Genre : Biography & Autobiography
  • NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • The raw, candid, unvarnished memoir of an American icon. The greatest movie star of the past 75 years covers everything: his traumatic childhood, his career, his drinking, his thoughts on Marlon Brando, James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor, John Huston, his greatest roles, acting, his intimate life with Joanne Woodward, his innermost fears and passions and joys. With thoughts/comments throughout from Joanne Woodward, George Roy Hill, Tom Cruise, Elia Kazan and many others. "Newman at his best…with his self-aware persona, storied marriage and generous charitable activities…this rich book somehow imbues his characters’ pain and joy with fresh technicolor." —The Wall Street Journal In 1986, Paul Newman and his closest friend, screenwriter Stewart Stern, began an extraordinary project. Stuart was to compile an oral history, to have Newman’s family and friends and those who worked closely with him, talk about the actor’s life. And then Newman would work with Stewart and give his side of the story. The only stipulation was that anyone who spoke on the record had to be completely honest. That same stipulation applied to Newman himself. The project lasted five years. The result is an extraordinary memoir, culled from thousands of pages of transcripts. The book is insightful, revealing, surprising. Newman’s voice is powerful, sometimes funny, sometimes painful, always meeting that high standard of searing honesty. The additional voices—from childhood friends and Navy buddies, from family members and film and theater collaborators such as Tom Cruise, George Roy Hill, Martin Ritt, and John Huston—that run throughout add richness and color and context to the story Newman is telling. Newman’s often traumatic childhood is brilliantly detailed. He talks about his teenage insecurities, his early failures with women, his rise to stardom, his early rivals (Marlon Brando and James Dean), his first marriage, his drinking, his philanthropy, the death of his son Scott, his strong desire for his daughters to know and understand the truth about their father. Perhaps the most moving material in the book centers around his relationship with Joanne Woodward—their love for each other, his dependence on her, the way she shaped him intellectually, emotionally and sexually. The Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man is revelatory and introspective, personal and analytical, loving and tender in some places, always complex and profound.

Against the backdrop of a reluctant America's entry into a world war and FDR's hawkish build-up of a modern navy, Washington's gossip-ridden society, and the nation's surging economy, Weintraub summons up the early influences on the young and enterprising nephew of his predecessor, “Uncle Ted.”

Brodie can’t imagine what secret in Mary’s past has left her so buttoned-up, though he’d dearly love to find out. Maybe then she’d trust him enough to explore their explosive chemistry. But he needs this job, so he’ll play by her rules and bide his time . . . until an enemy determined to outwit them strikes and he needs to get close—in every way—to protect her. Otherwise they could lose much more than a precious collectible. They could lose it all. Praise for Driven to Distraction “As usual, Foster delivers fascinating characters, intense sexual tension, and suspense that keeps readers glued to the page.” —Kirkus Reviews

  • The discovery of fission created a new kind of fear, not simply a new iteration of the previous responses to new technology. This new fear was profound, disquieting and all encompassing. By the time nuclear power was introduced, anxiety and concern about nuclear weapons had already fostered perceptions that left a long-lasting legacy that would taint nuclear power for decades. Nuclear power would struggle to cope with the blurred distinctions between military and civilian applications for its entire history. The public would experience nuclear power through the lens of the media, increasingly this lens became a prism which projected a distorted image of nuclear power. Gradually, the distortions became more apparent than reality and the gap in public knowledge widened. Like everything, nuclear power requires representation for the public to assimilate it. The lack of depiction of nuclear power served to amplify the distortions in public perception and reinforced avoidance about nuclear technology. Avoidance about nuclear power is the dominant response, most people do not want to hear about it, learn about it and know about it. Coverage of nuclear power has been dominated by the threat of accidents or any kind of incident that occurred at nuclear power plants. This negative attention about accidents and their potential impact would interfere with the integration of nuclear power into modern society. Accidents seemed limitless in their potential damage, and the lack of public knowledge about their impact allowed imaginations to run wild. The crux of the pro-nuclear and anti-nuclear debate rests on the estimations about the significance of potential accidents. Were they capable of massive destruction and tremendous risk or was their impact compact, limited and minor? The scale of a 'worst-case scenario' became the key question of the nuclear power debate, and proved to be quite powerful in affecting its history. Chernobyl, Fukushima, and even Three Mile Island became larger-than-life incidents and each acquired their own mythology. The perceptions of what happened set the tone for attitudes about nuclear power. Despite being an essential part of the natural environment, radiation is rarely well understood. We are exposed to radiation everyday from the earth below and the sun above, yet parents believe it is more important for children to learn about volcanoes than radiation. The fear of nuclear power and radiation has become significant in itself, changing the course of history. Nuclear power has been decisively shaped by political struggles and emotional arguments that even affected its technological development. Negative feelings about nuclear power contrast with the benign feelings towards wind and solar, so considerable resources and subsidies are devoted to them, in the hope these can make a meaningful impact to reduce emissions. A strong consensus supports wind and solar in contrast to the divisive debate around nuclear power. The emotional responses are driving our attitudes to technology and energy, which does not always result in the most logical ends. The history of nuclear power is both revelatory and surprising, and it will definitely change the way you think about energy in the modern world.

    The Enneagram, Relationships, and Intimacy
  • Author : Suzanne Dion,David Daniels
  • Publisher : N.a

  • ISBN : 1731357966
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Family & Relationships
  • There are lots of books out there written about love; some great ones discuss the importance of early secure attachment, and plenty too have been written about relationships and how to make them better. This book is a bit different. Dr. David Daniels, Professor Emeritus Stanford Medical School, brings his personal passion for human development to over 40 years of study as a private-practice psychiatrist (working primarily with couples), a 61-year marriage, and a deep and comprehensive understanding of human temperament and personality proclivities, to the table. Thanks to having studied something called, "the Enneagram," David says, "Of all of the treatment modalities I worked with and tried out across my therapeutic career, nothing came close to helping couples heal their hearts and relax their defenses as much as I witnessed happening when using a comprehensive application of the Enneagram system." Understanding ourselves as well as others -- with acceptance, discernment, curiosity, and wonderment -- in the way the Enneagram precipitates, provides the greatest foundation from which to build healthier, more receptive and more fulfilling relationships. It is our fundamental relationships that sustain our lives, fuel our happiness, and support our greater development and potential. Bringing this book to fruition was the passionate focus of much of David's time, exploration, and thought the last many years of his life. Within in it holds David's endearing understanding of human relationships and his devotion to contributing to a more loving world.

  • "My worst fear wasn't of dying, it was of living. Living, while everyone around me had their flesh savagely torn from their bodies, to be shoved into the festering and ever-hungry mouths of zombies." Contagious (The Contagium Series Book One) "I wasn’t afraid of death. If I died, it would be over. It terrified me, right down to my very core, to be alive while the rest of the world was dead." During the Second Great Depression, twenty-four year old Orissa Penwell is forced to drop out of college when she is no longer able to pay for classes. Unable to find a job, she moves in with her aunt in Indianapolis. Down on her luck, Orissa doesn’t think she can sink any lower. She couldn’t be more wrong. A virus breaks out across the country, leaving those that are infected crazed, aggressive and very hungry. Orissa is used to only being responsible for herself. When she finds herself a reluctant leader of a group of survivors, she must make a choice—set aside her issues and help the others--or go off alone in search of her own family and friends. Deathly Contagious (The Contagium Series Book Two) Orissa Penwell will do anything in the zombie-plagued world to keep her friends safe. After the discovery of a zombie-proof safe house, she thinks things may actually work out and they can get through the apocalypse together. The compound offers more than just shelter. It gives her and her friends a sense of community and purpose. It gives them a reason to keep living in the dead world. But her chance at happiness is shattered when someone she recently let into her life—and her heart—is killed. Hell-bent on revenge, Orissa will do whatever it takes to seek vengeance and get even…without caring what the risk is for herself. Things quickly go from bad to worse and she finds herself lost and abandoned—and forced to face the zombie-plagued world on her own. When lies, secrets, and desperation are added to the already harrowing world, Orissa discovers that zombies aren’t the only things to worry about. What—or who—will justice cost her? And just how far will Orissa go to avenge someone she loves?
