Pet Food Nation – For decades, dog and cat owners have depended on popular commercial foods to keep their beloved animals well-fed until this year’s national pet food catastrophe, which left pet owners scrambling for an alternative to mass-quantity, factory-produced food. Pet Food Nation is an up-to-date manual for dog and cat owners on the most nutritionally sound way to feed their pets–without relying on commercially-made pet food.
When Parents Hurt (I just started reading this one and so far it’s been great!) – When Parents Hurt supports parents who are struggling with the heartache of having a teenager or an adult child who is troubled, angry, or distant. Psychologist and parent Joshua Coleman, Ph.D., offers insight, empathy, and perspective to those who have lost the opportunity to be the parent they desperately wanted to be and who are mourning the loss of a relationship with their child.
Fifteen Candles – A collection of fifteen kitschy, humorous first person tales about the Quinceañera. This anthology is a cross between ‘ “Hairspray, ” ‘ “Dress Your Family in Denim and Corduroy,” and Stephen King’s “Carrie.” These are the tales of normally repressed spinster aunts in their beehives, drunk and dirty dancing with 15 year old boys, and of fussy, over-priveleged girls getting their comeuppance as six gallons of fruit punch are dumped onto their pristine white gowns. These will also be the tales of that particularly unique form of familial humiliation that is borne out of the best intentions, fierce love, and the infectious joy of parents finally allowing their little girl to grow up.
Rocketeers – In the more than forty years since the first human left the atmosphere of Earth, no one had ever done so without the help of a government agency. That changed on June 21, 2004, when SpaceShipOne, built by aircraft designer Burt Rutan, entered space and ushered in the commercial space age. In Rocketeers, Michael Belfiore goes behind the scenes of this nascent industry, capturing its Wild West, anything-goes flavor, enhanced by the fact that most of the players live and work in , , , and other western states, with plenty of open space for rocket launching. Likening his research to “hanging out in the Wright brothers’ barn,” Belfiore offers an inspiring and entertaining look at people who are not afraid to make their bold dreams a reality.
Connect – Known across corporate America for his energetic and inspirational presentations, Keith Harrell shows how our ability to connect–in our professional lives and personal relationships–is at the core of success. Thought-provoking, practical, and energizing, CONNECT explores the seven core competencies needed to master the art of connecting to heighten productivity and to maximize both personal and professional success.
