A curious mind and a bad attitude land Carlos Mason in jail for something that he didn't do. Carlos Mason, a sixteen-year-old juvenile, gets arrested by a drug task force team that has him labeled as a drug dealer. Carlos is innocent of all charges against him and is not a drug dealer, but he gets taken to jail anyway for his obnoxious behavior toward the officers. Once Carlos goes to court to explain his innocence, he goes verbally wild on the judge for not taking his side of the situation, which quickly turns an overnight stay behind bars into a two-year incarceration, where he comes face-to-face with some of the most aggressive and dangerous inmates in the country. But with Carlos being an aggressive person as well and with very little fear in his heart, he refuses to be intimidated by the inmates' ferocious approach toward him. Carlos must quickly learn how to survive among the inmates if he wants any chance of getting back to the outside world alive. While in lockdown, Carlos becomes a master of reverse psychology, but before he can use it, he must learn to respect the people around him that have very different mind-sets and different mentalities. The story takes an unexpected turn toward a very shocking ending.
Can their marriage survive the ultimate betrayal? Young and passionately in love, Clara and Ben Pipestone came from vastly different worlds. She was a college student, studying the indigenous people of the Great Plains. He fixed cars in the winter and followed the amateur Indian rodeo circuit all summer. Ignoring those who doomed their relationship to failure, they married, settled into their life in Bismarck, North Dakota, and had a beautiful daughter, Anna. But now, thirteen years later, Ben's alcoholism blurs his judgment and lands him in the arms of another woman. The betrayal has torn their marriage apart, and their daughter is paying the price. Shoplifting, drinking, and running with a bad crowd, Anna is out of control. Determined to save their troubled teenage daughter, Clara and Ben take Anna and join a two week trek on horseback across an unforgiving winter terrain, a journey across sacred land in remembrance of Ben's Lakota ancestors. Can their journey bring them a better understanding of the past and each other? Can it heal their broken trust and unite them as a family? Bestselling author Kathleen Eagle set aside a gratifying seventeen-year teaching career on a North Dakota Indian reservation to become a full-time novelist. The Lakota Sioux heritage of her husband and their three children has inspired many of her stories. Among her other honors, she has received the Romance Writers of America's prestigious RITA Award.
Joe "Duff" McBride's new book, A Tale of Two Gimps: "Such Is Life," tells the eye-opening and, at times, sidesplitting story of his misadventures as a self-titled "gimp"--the result of a car accident as a teenage boy that left him physically disabled, but with his sense of humor fully intact. His witty perspective on life, especially the difficulties of his new situation, is shared and even amplified by his friendship with "Mouse," another teenage boy who finds himself in a similar predicament. When the two teens become acquainted at a rehabilitation hospital in Philadelphia, they are both also becoming acquainted with the tremendous challenges forced upon them by their spinal cord injuries. These problems are more than just the physical handicaps, but the emotional and psychological ones as well, as the two boys manage to keep the spirits of others high as well as their own, at the same time they struggle daily with the kinds of basic activities that most people take for granted. Even thought the book is intended to entertain the reader with unblinking honesty and biting humor, it also presents a remarkable account of two young men doing the best they can. A Tale of Two Gimps is a unique work, offering a glimpse into a world many can't imagine. It is sad, touching, hilarious, filled with hope, disgusting, shocking, crude and raw. Just like life. It shows how, for these two indomitable young men, 'it was the worst of circumstances, and it was the best of circumstances.'
Since the middle of the twentieth century, Turkish playwriting has been notable for its verve and versatility. This two-volume anthology is the first major collection of plays in English of modern Turkish drama, a selection dealing with ancient Anatolian mythology, Ottoman history, contemporary social issues and family dramas, ribald comedy from Turkey’s cities and rural areas. It also includes several plays set outside Turkey. The two volumes together will feature seventeen plays by major playwrights published or produced from the late 1940s to the present day, with volume 1,“Ibrahim the Mad” and Other Plays, encompassing plays from the 1940s through the 1960s, and volume 2, "I, Anatolia" and Other Plays, including plays from the 1970s through the 1990s. They grant to English readers the pleasure of riveting drama in translations that are colloquial as well as faithful. For producers, directors, and actors they provide a wealth of fresh, new material, with characters ranging from Ottoman sultans to a Soviet cosmonaut, from the Byzantine Empress Theodora to a fisherman's wife, from residents of an Istanbul neighborhood to King Midas, from Montezuma to a Turkish cabinet minister.
Rick returns to Prison where some horrific events passed during his absence. The only good news in all the tragedy is that Tyreese managed to miraculously survive against the horde of zombies. And the murderer of the Greeene sisters is finally revealed.
What separates average businesses from extraordinarily successful ones? Better product? Nope. Your competitor will rapidly reverse-engineer your "secret sauce" and get their "better-than-you" version on the market faster than you can say "Usain Bolt." Better customer service? Guess what? All of your competitors say they provide the best customer service. It's a wishy washy phrase ... a vague generality with no meaningful specific. Better pricing? You're kidding, right? The company that lives on price dies on price. Harsher reality: Almost all industries today struggle with the increasing commoditization of their products and services, putting considerable pressure on prices and margins, leading to fiercer competition. The Solution? You must create an Uncopyable Attachment with your customers. They must see you as not only delivering a superior product but also as a high-value relationship they simply cannot get anywhere else. In Uncopyable, Steve Miller compellingly argues that new advantage isn't found by going "outside the box" - you must actually build your own box. Uncopyable will guide you to achieving an unfair and enduring competitive advantage.
