The Penultimate Truth

by Philip K. Dick

"At a time when most 20th-century science fiction writers seem hopelessly dated, Dick gives us a vision of the future that captures the feel of our time."--WiredIn the future, most of humanity lives in massive underground bunkers, producing weapons for the nuclear war they've fled. Constantly bombarded by patriotic propaganda, the citizens of these industrial anthills believe they are waiting for the day when the war will be over and they can return aboveground. But when Nick St. James, president of one anthill, makes an unauthorized trip to the surface, what he finds is more shocking than anything he could imagine.

Penumbra

by Keri Arthur

TWIN KILLING Agent Sam Ryan wants out of the Special Investigations Unit. She's sick of the attitude from her partner, Gabriel Stern. She's sick of the paperwork. Most of all, she's sick of feeling lonely. But her boss isn't about to let her go that easily. He gives Sam a choice: either stay stuck in her office or guard a clone replacement of Dan Wetherton, a government minister. Sam reluctantly chooses the latter--even though she suspects she's being used as bait to draw out the SIU's elusive nemesis. Gabriel would like nothing better than to be on his own, without a partner to hold him back. Then he learns that Sam has been assigned to protect Wetherton--or whatever it is that's replaced him. Wetherton's clone could have come from only one place: Hopeworth, the military base that contains the secrets of Sam's past. Determined to protect her, Gabriel is drawn into a fight against unspeakable evil. And all too soon, Sam and Gabriel discover that the connection between them is far more powerful than anyone could ever have imagined.

Peony in Love

by Lisa See

“I finally understand what the poets have written. In spring, moved to passion; in autumn only regret. ” For young Peony, betrothed to a suitor she has never met, these lyrics from The Peony Pavilion mirror her own longings. In the garden of the Chen Family Villa, amid the scent of ginger, green tea, and jasmine, a small theatrical troupe is performing scenes from this epic opera, a live spectacle few females have ever seen. Like the heroine in the drama, Peony is the cloistered daughter of a wealthy...

People Are Idiots and I Can Prove It!

by Larry Winget

We talk a lot about the things we want. I want more money. I want a better relationship with my spouse. I want good responsible kids. I want a promotion. I want to be healthy. I want to be smarter. I want to retire. I want, I want, I want. . . But do you know what people really want? They want what they've got. It's a simple formula: You have what you want because your actions produced your results. Not your words and certainly not your wants. In his signature caustic, yet loveable style, Larry dishes out straight talk on what he calls "life's messes" and offers up his advice topped with a dollop of common sense. We all know that people do stupid things to sabotage their success, and we can all think of areas in our own lives where we are just plain being idiots! So here is what Larry is proposing: Recognize where you are being an idiot and then take action to stop being an idiot. He takes on business, family, health, being fat, being stupid, success, money, and more, and tells us step by step what we need to change. He tells us to take responsibility for our words and our wants and put them into action. Why Larry? We have seen him do it as an expert on TV, coaching people on taking control of their money. We turn to him for business advice and kick-in-the- pants motivation. But why ask Larry for advice on things like relationships and parenting? Larry says the answers to most problems, whether personal or professional, go hand in hand. What it takes to be a great leader is what it takes to be a great parent. The principles it takes to be a good salesperson are the same principles it takes to get along with others. The principles of personal success are the same principles of business success and financial success. This book is a little mirror you can hold up to your life to reflect back to you your areas of stupidity. A mirror that has a little action plan taped to the back of it. A little bit of business. A little bit of personal development. A little finance. A little parenting. A little health and wellness. And a whopping dose of common sense!The Pitbull of Personal Development ® and New York Times bestselling author Larry Winget brings us advice on the dumb things we are doing to sabotage our success. Larry Winget is back, and this time he's telling us that most people are idiots! And that seems harsh. But in fact this is Larry's most positive book yet because he believes that what people really want is to be told the truth. And usually the truth isn't pretty. When you have had it with hand holding and making excuses for why you are not doing as well as you could be doing, when you are ready to hear someone tell it to you like it is, tell you exactly what you are doing wrong and how to fix it, Larry is your man. Do you have a plan for success? Why not? It's time to cut out the endless chatter about the things you want, the things you wish you had. It's time to stop wasting your time with excuses and explanations for why you aren't quite where you need to be. This book is the swift kick you need to cut out the bad habits that are keeping you from your goals. Figure out what you really want, not what you say you want, and get started on your action plan for success.

The People Could Fly: American Black Folktales

by Virginia Hamilton

24 folktales briefly and dramatically told lend themselves to be read aloud or acted out around campfires, on stormy nights, or to be discussed for readers of all ages. Their heroes prevail through cleverness, perseverance, quick thinking and, often, magic. The stories come from far and wide where enslavement of Africans was practiced from Portugal, to the United States, to the Cape Verde Islands. After each story, Virginia Hamilton, the Newberry Award winning author, provides concise information about its source, history, symbols, storytelling elements and interpretation. Find out how the lion who goes about scaring the other animals by roaring, "Me and myself!" is silenced, how Little Daughter evades a stalking wolf with her goodest, sweetest, song, and how a man whose horse and grandmother is killed by a bully, avoids being killed himself, becomes wealthy, and brings the brute to justice. In one story a young man uses his three obedient rabbits to outwit a princess, queen, and king, catching them in a sackful of lies. Another story warns that should you ever cut off a creature's big , long tail and eat it, it will come for you in the night calling for you to give it's, "tailypo," back. It will creep up your wall, through your window, across your floor, on to your bed and you'll be too scared to move, too scared to scream...<P><P>Winner of the Coretta Scott King Medal

The People Factor

by Van Moody

The relationships in your life will make the difference between happiness and misery. The right relationship will launch you to the heights of achievement; the wrong one will tether you to mediocrity. Your relationships will be your sources of greatest joy and your venues of greatest pain. Van Moody says, "When people show you who they are, pay attention." We need to undertake the important task of evaluating our relationships intelligently. We need to recognize the people with whom God has called us to walk in mutually beneficial relationships and to identify those who will derail our destinies or hinder His purposes for our lives. It is high time we cultivate our Relational IQs, understanding not only how to build great relationships but also how to avoid or skillfully exit bad ones. Van Moody saw this need every day of his pastoral life, but he could not find a concise, practical resource for people who need to become more relationally savvy. He needed a beyond-the-basics study guide for Relational IQ. The People Factor is his solution.God works in our lives through our relationships. Yet, all too often, we get our relationship advice from the most toxic sources we can find. The People Factor is based on the most effective, trustworthy relationship book of all time: the Bible. If you hunger for a richer, more fulfilling life, your Relational IQ is the place to start. If you put The People Factor principles to work, you will become stronger, happier, and healthier in all your relationships. You will be a better spouse, a better friend, a better boss, a better parent, and a better person.

They succeed, finding not only that tribe but also a group of forest dwellers they dub "The Dreamers," who turn out to be fantastically long-lived but progressively more senile. Perina suspects the source of their longevity is a hard-to-find turtle; unable to resist the possibility of eternal life, he kills one and smuggles some meat back to the States. He scientifically proves his thesis, earning worldwide fame and the Nobel Prize, but he soon discovers that its miraculous property comes at a terrible price. As things quickly spiral out of his control, his own demons take hold, with devastating personal consequences.

People Love You

by Jeb Blount

What you experience is what you remember. The more emotional the experience, the deeper it is branded into your memory. Experience has a massive impact on buying decisions. Every touch point, every time you or someone in your company engages a customer, it creates an experience - something they remember. When they have a negative experience, they tend to vote with their feet (and their wallets) and head straight to your competitors. When customers have positive emotional experiences, it anchors them to your brand, your product or service, and ultimately to you. In the twenty-first century, competitive advantages derived from unique products are services are short-lived because competitors are able to quickly and easily duplicate or match your offering. Likewise a focus on customer satisfaction and loyalty will no longer give you the competitive edge. Delivering a legendary customer experience has emerged as the single most important competitive advantage for companies across all industries. In People Love You you'll learn the real secrets of customer experience including: 7 Essential Principles of Customer Engagement5 Levers for Creating a Legendary Customer ExperienceThe Secret to Bridging the Experience GapHow to Leverage the Pull Strategy to become a Trusted Advisor2 Most Important Rules for Dealing with Pissed-off CustomersIn a hypercompetitive, global marketplace protecting your company's customer base, the lifeblood of your business, must become your number one priority. The rubber hits the road with account managers, project managers, sales professionals, and customer service professionals--the people most connected to customers--who are on the frontlines of customer experience. They build unique and enduring emotional connections with customers that creating long-term revenue and profit streams. In People Love You, human relationship guru, Jeb Blount, gives you a powerful playbook for interacting with customers in a way that creates deep, enduring, visceral connections that withstand relentless economic and competitive assaults.
