To win her heart he's going to need a little help... The Girl Next Door is a follow up read to Meg Gray's debut novel, The Teacher. Jam packed with many of the same down-to-earth characters from The Teacher, plus a few new witty sidekicks, The Girl Next Door is sure to delight fans of Meg's City Streets, Country Roads Novels. Jocelyn Banks, a small town investigative reporter, is averse to change. Yet, when she moves to the city of Portland, Oregon and takes a temporary job at The Portland Daily Report, a fast-paced newspaper, changes start happening faster than she's ready for. Doing her best to push herself out of the underdog status at her new job, Jocelyn learns that the big city isn't what she thought it was going to be. The one thing that hasn't changed though is her firm resolve to guard her heart from getting broken again, especially by her new neighbor who looks like the kind of guy that entertains a different lady every other night. Luke Lewis decides to join his brother Marcus in Portland, Oregon when his playboy antics get out of hand in Seattle, Washington. Emerging from beneath a pile of pro-bono cases he's finally handed a high profile case, which if played just right could land him a brand new corner office. But he's not sure that's what he wants. As the biggest deal of his life is about to literally go up in smoke he realizes the only thing he knows for sure is that he wants to win the favor of the one woman determined to shut him out. Humor-filled, cheeky, and teased with mystery, The Girl Next Door is a story about facing changes, trusting your heart, and believing in love.

NATIONAL BESTSELLER WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE The searing, post-apocalyptic novel about a father and son's fight to survive. A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food—and each other. The Road is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.

A New York Times Notable Book Winner of the Kiriyama Book Prize In the heart of China's Sichuan province, amid the terraced hills of the Yangtze River valley, lies the remote town of Fuling. Like many other small cities in this ever-evolving country, Fuling is heading down a new path of change and growth, which came into remarkably sharp focus when Peter Hessler arrived as a Peace Corps volunteer, marking the first time in more than half a century that the city had an American resident. Hessler taught English and American literature at the local college, but it was his students who taught him about the complex processes of understanding that take place when one is immersed in a radically different society. Poignant, thoughtful, funny, and enormously compelling, River Town is an unforgettable portrait of a city that is seeking to understand both what it was and what it someday will be.

This book brings together distinguished writers from diverse fields and their specialised perspectives on new ideas and the challenges they pose to the hegemony of neo-classical scientific management. It explores various possibilities for the future development of the understanding of management and organisation in the context of new economic conditions taking shape in both the East and the West. The focus on these makes this volume topical. It provides today’s managers with alternatives to conventional approaches to management that are now facing a credibility crunch. Managing in Changing Times: A Guide for the Perplexed Manager shows the manager that there are no easy, quick-fix, off the shelf solutions to complex problems. Solutions require thinking and action with multiple perspectives and require considerable effort to master. This imparts the book a global appeal as it speaks to every manager. The initial chapters present the ideas of Schumacher and Capra which, the author shows, could be used as catalysts to evolve a post-scientific global management era. The book will be a handy reference material for students of management, managers and management pundits.

THE BATTLE FOR ROOM 314 In a fit of idealism, Ed Boland left a twenty-year career as a non-profit executive to teach in a tough New York City public high school. But his hopes quickly collided headlong with the appalling reality of his students' lives and a hobbled education system unable to help them: Freddy runs a drug ring for his incarcerated brother; Nee-cole is homeschooled on the subway by her brilliant homeless mother; and Byron's Ivy League dream is dashed because he is undocumented. In the end, Boland isn't hoisted on his students' shoulders and no one passes AP anything. This is no urban fairy tale of at-risk kids saved by a Hollywood hero, but a searing indictment of schools that claim to be progressive but still fail their students. Told with compassion, humor, and a keen eye, Boland's story is sure to ignite debate about the future of American education and attempts to reform it.
