Book Excerpt :

THE GRIPPING NEW ADVENTURE FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE LEFT HAND OF GOD SERIES Welcome those of you from the Old World. Welcome to the New. Mankind's most reluctant hero - Thomas Cale - is back. ________ Thomas Cale has been running from his enemies. Believing him to be the incarnation of God's rage, the world's most violent religious sect trained him to destroy His greatest mistake. Mankind itself. But Cale has other ideas. Cale is a paradox: arrogant and innocent, generous and pitiless. Feared and revered by those that created him, he has already used his terrifying talent for violence and destruction to bring down the most powerful civilization in the world. But having fled to America, Thomas Cale has been caught. He has been given a choice. Murder the American president - the father of that fragile democracy and the the best hope for ending slavery - or be handed over for execution himself. The survival of rule by the people, and the right of millions not to be owned by others, rests on Cale's decision . . . ________ Praise for Paul Hoffman: 'Fiction on a grand and ambitious scale' Daily Telegraph 'Brooding and magnificent' Eoin Colfer 'Exhilaratingly engaging writing' Spectator 'Gripped me from the first chapter' Conn Iggulden 'A riveting, powerful tale' Publishers Weekly

Book Short Summary:

Much of contemporary communication occurs between and among small groups, whether in person in a work setting or on the Internet via email, Facebook, or instant messages. How we engage in our small-group communication in each medium matters. To be effective we have to consider our group roles, norms, cohesion, process, and phases of development, as well as our personal verbal and nonverbal communication and listening styles. To succeed as a member of a team, we need to consider the limits of our personal experience and perspective, recognize the creative strength of diverse perspectives in decision making and problem solving, develop our conflict-management skills, and strengthen our leadership skills. To be successful necessitates an understanding of group process, participation style, ethical group behavior, and the influences of the medium. Small Group and Team Communication explores all these different interconnections and the communication strategies we use in our work and social groups. The authors use the systems perspective as their core approach throughout the text, treating small groups as complex open systems reliant upon communication to achieve success. Many chapters highlight the importance of considering ethics and diversity in relation to a variety of topics. Harris and Sherblom address the growing influence of computer-mediated communication to this discipline. Real-world, applied examples show students that what they’re learning aren’t simply abstract concepts, but knowledge that will serve them outside the classroom.

Silence falls over the boys, a rare respite from jokes n stories, as they absorb the scene the pines across the valley and tag alders crowding the Fox below, the rivers gorgeous dark reddish-brown color the result of tannins, the decaying leaves and other vegetation along the riverside. & yang...

A powerful and evocative saga - the sequel to A GIRL CALLED THURSDAY. When Thursday Tilford returns to Haslar Hospital after two years serving as a VAD in Egypt, she finds many changes. With the town packed with troops waiting to leave for the Normandy beaches, and Haslar on standby for the wounded, Thursday's thoughts go to the two men who are vying for her heart: Connor Kirkpatrick, the naval doctor she met at Haslar in 1940, and army doctor Mark Sangster, who travelled with her on the troopship to Egypt. Although she longs to keep her promise to Connor, Thursday's feelings for Mark force her to consider the nature of promises and even, in the end, the nature of love itself. It is only as the war ends and she is presented with an ultimatum that she understands the truth about love, about promises - and about herself.

Book Short Summary:

All DC police sergeant Mike Wesley wants to do is coast through his last year before retiring, but when he is assigned a 21 year old female rookie to "mentor", she turns their first murder case into a serial killer scenario that covers 20 years and scores of Satanic-type murders. When his partner targets a local businessman as a suspect, Wesley is caught between his quest for the truth and his Captain's orders to squelch the investigation. As they shadow the suspect, Wesley discovers an even greater scope to the murders than his partner had imagined. When he bypasses his Captain and goes to the FBI, Wesley discovers the impact of high-level politics on law enforcement, the pervasiveness of Satanic cult behavior, and uncovers the shocking truth behind "the crime of the century." Will you believe what the story suggets, a crime so staggering as to defy belief, or is this just another clever horror story? There's only one way to find out.

Book Short Summary:

In this unforgettable space opera, #1 New York Times bestselling author George R. R. Martin presents a chilling vision of eternal night—a volatile world where cultures clash, codes of honor do not exist, and the hunter and the hunted are often interchangeable. A whisperjewel has summoned Dirk t’Larien to Worlorn, and a love he thinks he lost. But Worlorn isn’t the world Dirk imagined, and Gwen Delvano is no longer the woman he once knew. She is bound to another man, and to a dying planet that is trapped in twilight. Gwen needs Dirk’s protection, and he will do anything to keep her safe, even if it means challenging the barbaric man who has claimed her. But an impenetrable veil of secrecy surrounds them all, and it’s becoming impossible for Dirk to distinguish between his allies and his enemies. In this dangerous triangle, one is hurtling toward escape, another toward revenge, and the last toward a brutal, untimely demise.

Martin knows how to hold the reader.”—Asimov’s “George R. R. Martin has the voice of a poet and a mind like a steel trap.”—Algis Budrys

FLORIDA. IT’S WHERE YOU GO TO DIE. Welcome to Polo Springs, a sleepy little town on Florida’s Gulf Coast. It’s a great place to live—if you don’t mind the hurricanes. Or the flooding.

But when Hurricane Ramona slams the coast, the town has a bigger problem on their hands. Bigger iguanas. Bigger than a double-wide.

Book Short Summary:

Few sports polarise public opinion as boxing does. Some contend that it is repugnant and barbaric, for others a legitimate, regulated contest of skill, strength and willpower. What cannot be denied is that the fight game has produced some of sport's greatest icons. Many more are content to make a decent living or at least supplement their income by stepping into the ring. Fighting Chance gets up close with those involved in everyday British boxing. It goes behind the scenes at shows and into gyms to meet champions such as Ricky Hatton, starry-eyed young men dreaming of world titles, hard-nosed pros surviving another pay day and veteran trainers who have seen it all and sometimes wish they hadn't. Many of them say this brutal trade has saved them from a life of crime and drugs, and given them an opportunity to find self-esteem. All recognise the possible cost - Paul Ingles, for example, almost lost his life in the ring - but maintain it is a risk worth taking. Martin Jolley attempted suicide in his darkest hour but survived and sought a kind of refuge as a journeyman boxer, taking fights at short notice and then returning to his day job as a printer. Michael Jennings' brother was killed by an addiction to drugs and he is convinced the sport has spared him the same tragic fate. Others, however, are always tormented by their demons. Michael Gomez, once held on a murder charge, was hailed as a future world champion until he went off the rails, plunging his private life into turmoil and leaving his career on the brink. Brian Hughes, one of the best-known and most successful trainers in the country, admits his love of boxing has been eroded by the 'stinking' side of the business. Often shocking, sometimes humorous, always gripping, Fighting Chance is an odyssey through a world few will have encountered. It gives a candid insight and many of its compelling characters.

Book Short Summary:

No time in my life had ever been good within the time I had spent on this earth at the age of ten, except for when I lived with my grandmother in a west African county called Liberia. You see, my parents had me at a young age, and when my mothers father, who is my grandfather, found out that my mom was pregnant with me, he threw her out after finding out that my dad was the one she claimed was the father. My grandfather, being a high-ranking military man, went to my dad and told him to deny the baby and get on with his life, and if my father was to agree to this proposal, my granddad told my father he would not go and report him to my dads oldest brother, whom they called Mr. Spencer and who was also my grandfathers best friend whom my dad lived with. However, he was treated more like a servant than a family member because of Mrs. Spencer was my dads brothers wife.

Book Short Summary:

A classic examination of the lived realities of American racism, now with a new foreword from Pulitzer Prize winner Isabel Wilkerson. First published in 1941, Deep South is a landmark work of anthropology, documenting in startling and nuanced detail the everyday realities of American racism. Living undercover in Depression-era Mississippi—not revealing their scholarly project or even their association with one another—groundbreaking Black scholar Allison Davis and his White co-authors, Burleigh and Mary Gardner, delivered an unprecedented examination of how race shaped nearly every aspect of twentieth-century life in the United States. Their analysis notably revealed the importance of caste and class to Black and White worldviews, and they anatomized the many ways those views are constructed, solidified, and reinforced. ​ This reissue of the 1965 abridged edition, with a new foreword from Pulitzer Prize winner Isabel Wilkerson—who acknowledges the book’s profound importance to her own work—proves that Deep South remains as relevant as ever, a crucial work on the concept of caste and how it continues to inform the myriad varieties of American inequality.

Book Short Summary:

Making decisions at any age is not always an easy feat. When you are walking with the Lord Jesus Christ, it makes sense to pray and do the next right thing. As life moves at ninety miles an hour, moving with the flow can set you up to make split-second decisions. Taking what we think is the easy way is often the hardest of all. We are told in 1 Peter 5:7 to cast all our cares on Him because He cares for us. Taking the Jesus way out is always the best way. It may not be the easy that we are looking for, but it will not leave the collateral damage that our way leaves behind. The roads that we walk down in life are covered with attractive billboards drawing us to off-ramps that will lead us to destruction. It is so important to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus Christ as we walk life's highways and byways so we are not lured into the craziness that the world has to offer. Taking life one moment at a time is actually a doable thing. Life moves in seconds, not days. Don't let one trial take you down. Romans 8:13 says that we are more than conquerors, and thankfully, God is a god of do-overs!
