DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Dan Caro has been proving the world wrong since he was in diapers. When he was two years old, he was engulfed in a fireball during a gasoline explosion in the family garage and was left with third-degree burns over most of his body - so severe that doctors held out little hope he'd survive more than a few days. Dan was in such excruciating pain that his devastated parents silently prayed for God to end their son's suffering and welcome him into heaven. And it seemed as if God was willing to oblige - Dan technically died on the operating table several times in the hours following the accident. But even though his heart stopped, Dan's spirit wasn't ready to give up . . . somehow he knew he had work to do. Despite the odds, Dan survived, but life would not be easy. The fire left him badly maimed and disfigured. His hands were burned away, as was most of his skin and nearly all of his face. He would endure years of painful surgeries and endless months of lonely isolation in burn units, only to suffer the agony of social rejection, shunned and called ''monster'' by both children and adults in his Louisiana hometown. With the support of his loving parents and siblings, Dan did not despair. He kept his heart open to the world and focused on the positive energy around him. Before his sixth birthday, he vowed that his life would not be defined by the way others saw him or the restrictions of his so-called physical handicaps. Dan set himself a series of life goals, starting with the art of tying his shoelaces without fingers. Once he had achieved that milestone, he decided he could do anything . . . so why not learn to play the drums? When Dan was told he'd never be able to do so, he promised himself that one day he'd become one of the most accomplished drummers in the city that gave jazz its name - New Orleans! Since that day, Dan's music has inspired thousands, and many more have also been inspired by his personal philosophy of focusing on the positive, refusing to accept limits, and living life with an open heart. Today, the young man who was once shunned and called ''monster'' by his neighbors is very much in demand as a public speaker and travels the country encouraging others to not just overcome life's hardships, but to view adversity as a gift that can drive us toward reaching our full potential.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Richard Mitchell was the Underground Grammarian. Here, back in print after many years, is The Gift of Fire, his last book, with a preface by his daughter, Daphne Mitchell Keller. In this collection of interconnected essays, he explores the teachings of Jesus and Socrates, parables of St. Peter and the Brothers Grimm, and the writings of Orwell and Aquinas, and considers what they have to teach us about living a good life. Best known for his long-running newsletter, The Underground Grammarian, and his previous writings about education, Mitchell guides his readers through the thorny perils of everyday morality, helping them respond with deep self-awareness to everything from traffic jams to war, partisan politics, and inequality. From the preface: "Nowhere in The Gift of Fire does Richard Mitchell, who was my father, claim that we can't think. Quite the opposite, in fact. There is no person, he says, who does not have the capacity to be educated, no one who lacks the ability to become able to tell the good from the bad, or who is somehow prevented forever from taking the grasp of his own mind. There are those who have not learned to do these things, or who are unwilling to do them, or who don't even know that they could be done. It's no surprise that many people don't do them. But he would (and in fact does) argue that every one of us could."

My Court knows that I've lost the sacred stone of our people, putting everyone in danger. When the Royal Guard comes for me with a pair of fire manacles, I'm not surprised. But when my estranged mate, king of the Sea Fae, strolls into the Court of Fire to help me.... Well, that bit is unexpected. I'm in no position to turn down help, even if my mate is hardly speaking to me. If we don't recover the Soul Stone soon, all of my people will burn from within. As we go deep into enemy territory, the desire between us becomes impossible to resist. And if I can't fight it, he'll never let me go.

Editor: Anchor

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The reigning consensus holds that the combination of free markets and democracy would transform the third world and sweep away the ethnic hatred and religious zealotry associated with underdevelopment. In this revelatory investigation of the true impact of globalization, Yale Law School professor Amy Chua explains why many developing countries are in fact consumed by ethnic violence after adopting free market democracy. Chua shows how in non-Western countries around the globe, free markets have concentrated starkly disproportionate wealth in the hands of a resented ethnic minority. These “market-dominant minorities” – Chinese in Southeast Asia, Croatians in the former Yugoslavia, whites in Latin America and South Africa, Indians in East Africa, Lebanese in West Africa, Jews in post-communist Russia – become objects of violent hatred. At the same time, democracy empowers the impoverished majority, unleashing ethnic demagoguery, confiscation, and sometimes genocidal revenge. She also argues that the United States has become the world’s most visible market-dominant minority, a fact that helps explain the rising tide of anti-Americanism around the world. Chua is a friend of globalization, but she urges us to find ways to spread its benefits and curb its most destructive aspects.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Grace Moore is a Seattle woman with a unique sense of fashion, an obsession for delicious and exotic food, and a highly illegal magical ability to change the reality around her. When the summoners in nearby Spokane are wiped out, her own Grove pulls her from a cushy research position and sends her as an understrength, token response to the attack. Robert Lorents is a foster kid living in Spokane. A teenage band nerd with his head wrapped around romantic fantasies and his heart firmly ensconced in his saxophone case, the sudden death of his one remaining biological relative launches him down a path to learn his own fantastic--if felonious--powers. These two are forced together by circumstance-- an unwilling mentor and an uncontrolled student-- to face a threat on their own that has already annihilated summoners far more powerful than they. To save reality as we know it, they must learn to work with one another, discover the true nature of their opponent, and, of course, avoid getting arrested for trying to save our existence.
