Book Description :

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Gillian Flynn’s Edgar Award-winning homage to the classic ghost story, published for the first time as a standalone. A canny young woman is struggling to survive by perpetrating various levels of mostly harmless fraud. On a rainy April morning, she is reading auras at Spiritual Palms when Susan Burke walks in. A keen observer of human behavior, our unnamed narrator immediately diagnoses beautiful, rich Susan as an unhappy woman eager to give her lovely life a drama injection. However, when the "psychic" visits the eerie Victorian home that has been the source of Susan’s terror and grief, she realizes she may not have to pretend to believe in ghosts anymore. Miles, Susan’s teenage stepson, doesn’t help matters with his disturbing manner and grisly imagination. The three are soon locked in a chilling battle to discover where the evil truly lurks and what, if anything, can be done to escape it. “The Grownup,” which originally appeared as “What Do You Do?” in George R. R. Martin’s Rogues anthology, proves once again that Gillian Flynn is one of the world’s most original and skilled voices in fiction.

Book Description :

A young woman is making a living faking it as a cut-price psychic (with some illegal soft-core sex work on the side). She makes a decent wage mostly by telling people what they want to hear. But then she meets Susan Burke. Susan moved to the city one year ago with her husband and 15-year-old stepson Miles. They live in a Victorian house called Carterhook Manor. Susan has become convinced that some malevolent spirit is inhabiting their home. The young woman doesn't believe in exorcism or the supernatural. However when she enters the house for the first time, she begins to feel it too, as if the very house is watching her, waiting, biding its time . . . The Grownup, which originally appeared as 'What Do You Do?' in George R. R. Martin's Rogues short story anthology, proves once again that Gillian Flynn is one of the world's most original and skilled voices in fiction.

Book Description :

OMG! I’m the Grown-Up! gives care-givers an innovative strategy for managing the interpersonal dynamics of giving-care she calls the Praxis for Care. This book presents the Praxis for Care as a strategy that guides care-givers toward taking actions that are satisfying to both persons. It is a practical, easily applied approach that balances the care recipient’s needs with those of the care-giver. Dr. Yarbrough likens giving-care to riding a teeter-totter where the needs of both persons go up and down based on the circumstances at hand. As a care-giver, Dr. Yarbrough has experienced how easily one can forget herself while meeting a loved one’s care needs. That experience taught her that care-giving and giving-care are two fundamentally different practices. According Dr. Yarbrough, care-giving is what you do for your loved one; giving-care is what you do for both of you. OMG! I’m the Grown-Up! guides readers through the Praxis for Care. Using thinking points, self-reflection, and journal exercises readers build an individualized care journey for providing the best care for both people.

Book Description :

For many years, scientists thought that the human brain simply decayed over time and its dying cells led to memory slips, fuzzy logic, negative thinking, and even depression. But new research from neuroscien tists and psychologists suggests that, in fact, the brain reorganizes, improves in important functions, and even helps us adopt a more optimistic outlook in middle age. Growth of white matter and brain connectors allow us to recognize patterns faster, make better judgments, and find unique solutions to problems. Scientists call these traits cognitive expertise and they reach their highest levels in middle age. In her impeccably researched book, science writer Barbara Strauch explores the latest findings that demonstrate, through the use of technology such as brain scans, that the middle-aged brain is more flexible and more capable than previously thought. For the first time, long-term studies show that our view of middle age has been misleading and incomplete. By detailing exactly the normal, healthy brain functions over time, Strauch also explains how its optimal processes can be maintained. Part scientific survey, part how-to guide,The Secret Life of the Grown-Up Brainis a fascinating glimpse at our surprisingly talented middle-aged minds.

Book Description :

This book is dedicated to the unrelenting pursuit of Biblical truth concerning our apostolic founders’ vision of Christ’s interactive, maturing church. As the early apostles were committed to the growing-up of each individual disciple of the Body of Christ, so this book is written to challenge and exhort all believers and followers of Christ to not settle for the same-old predictable church style of stale hierarchal leadership with mediocre followers and results. If the reader would be willing to humble oneself and dare to become boldly unchained and unafraid of embracing what is presented in this book, through scriptural truth, then a much greater understanding of the goals of early Christian discipleship could be greatly realized for the full stature and steely strength of united saints in these most desperate of latter times.

Book Description :

Diana West sees a US filled with middle-age guys playing air guitar and thinks "No wonder we can't stop Islamic terrorism." She sees Moms Who Mosh and wonders "Is there a single adult left anywhere?" But, the grown-ups are all gone. The disease that killed them was incubated in the sixties to a rock-and-roll score, took hold in the seventies with the help of multiculturalism and left us with a nation of eternal adolescents who can't decide between "good" and "bad", a generation who can't say "no". From the inability to nix a sixteen year-old's request for Marilyn Manson concert tickets to offering adolescents parentally-funded motel rooms on prom night to rationalizing murderous acts of Islamic suicide bombers with platitudes of cultural equivalence, West sees us on a slippery slope that's lead to a time when America has forgotten its place in the world. In The Death of the Grown-Up Diana West serves up a provocative critique of our dangerously indecisive world leavened with humor and shot through with insight.

Book Description :

Nautilus Gold Award Winner: Parenting & Family A practical guide to understanding teens from bestselling author and global youth advocate Josh Shipp. In 2015, Harvard researchers found that every child who does well in the face of adversity has had at least one stable and committed relationship with a supportive adult. But Josh Shipp didn’t need Harvard to know that. Once an at-risk foster kid, he was headed straight for trouble until he met the man who changed his life: Rodney, the foster parent who refused to quit on Shipp and got him to believe in himself. Now, in The Grown-Up’s Guide to Teenage Humans, Shipp shows all of us how to be that caring adult in a teenager’s life. Stressing the need for compassion, trust, and encouragement, he breaks down the phases of a teenage human from sixth to twelfth grade, examining the changes, goals, and mentality of teenagers at each stage. Shipp offers revelatory stories that take us inside the teen brain, and shares wisdom from top professionals and the most expert grown-ups. He also includes practice scripts that address tough issues, including: FORGIVENESS: What do I do when a teen has been really hurt by someone and it’s not their fault? COMMUNICATION: How do I get a teen to talk to me? They just grunt. TRUST: My teen blew it. My trust is gone. Where do we go from here? BULLYING: Help! A teen (or their friend) is being harassed. DIFFICULT AND AWKWARD CONVERSATIONS: Drugs. Death. Sex. Oh my. Written in Shipp’s playfully authoritative, no-nonsense voice, The Grown-Up’s Guide to Teenage Humans tells his story and unpacks practical strategies that can make a difference. Ultimately, it's not about shortcuts or magic words—as Shipp reminds us, it’s about investing in kids and giving them the love, time, and support they need to thrive. And that means every kid is one caring adult away from being a success story.

Book Description :

All those 'how to be polite' books for kids, meh... 'Teach your teddy bear good manners'...yawn. My kid - and maybe your kid, too - doesn't mind if his teddy bear is rude, but he doesn't like losing in a negotiation, and he wants to be taken seriously by grownups, and that's where the real opportunity is hiding. Let's explain to our kids that being strategic and diplomatic in their speech and polished in their manners attracts a special trust from grownups, and pays off big time in ice creams, movies, robots, unicorns, and other objects of desire. With my kid, abstract concepts such as being nice to your teddy bear for the sake of human decency, simply don't work. So I have no qualms about telling him: Learn to talk to me like a well-mannered grownup, and I will oblige you with the stuff that you want. I also wrote this book from the perspective of being on the kid's side. The book is not didactic, it doesn't lecture about polite speech or manners, it treats these things as currency in getting what you want, and we make fun of grownups here and there in a good-natured way. The Magic of Big Words is an independent reading book for kids ages 7-11 (about level 4-5). The goal of the book is to - expand our kids' vocabulary in the grownup direction; - teach (or polish) polite and diplomatic communication with grownups; - teach that quality and responsibility in communication gets results; - introduce the concept of style, and develop interest in learning about style and the history of languages. What are 'big words'? To explain we compare everyday (or kids') speech made mostly of short words of Germanic origin with educated, grownup speech sprinkled with the post-Norman-Conquest French-Latin 'big words' (like 'appreciate,''reasonable,' or 'consequences'). To introduce this idea we'll learn about William the Conqueror, the Norman invasion and the battle of Hastings, and compare two versions of the same story - A written in everyday language, and in the literary 'big words' language. Then we'll explore being diplomatic in our speech: How diplomats communicate and how to turn up the volume of politeness to get the grownups to YES (when 'please' is not enough). In this part we'll cover ultra-polite ways to - ask for help or things - ask for permission to speak - disagree - express displeasure - say NO diplomatically - soften your speech stylistically to prevent defensiveness - give diplomatic advice - use euphemisms Next we'll play with being sophisticated in our speech: This is our show-off Professor's English. We'll cover - a bunch of Norman-Conquest words to expand our vocabulary (like great = spectacular, pretty = exquisite, and so on); - words and expressions of French origin used in educated speech (like 'carte blanche') - common Latin expressions used in educated speech (like 'et cetera') - words of Italian origin used in educated speech (like 'fiasco'). Along the way, we'll introduce simple linguistic concepts, such as: word origin, word vs expression, euphemism, idiom, word roots, and enjoy discussing funny English words (like 'ragamuffin'), hilarious idioms, and the longest word in English (the character limit does not permit me to type it here!) And finally, we'll put this all together in a BIG strategy that will enable kids to conduct a stellar negotiation and get from their parents (or Santa) anything (or almost anything) they want. Regrettably, I can't share this secret information here. For the sake of this book, I have to be on kids' side, and therefore I'd better wrap up this description before I spill any more beans...
