The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens Workbook
Sean Covey
1929494173
Dec 1999
Paperback
·
 
From AudioFile
In a sparkling production, Covey answers questions from a professional announcer and introduces short testimonials from real teenagers about how they implemented each of the seven habits. Snappy music is used as background and transitions, and the tone of the entire program is hip and contemporary. Being based on a time-proven set of principles helps the effort, and the author uses many of his father's anecdotes and analogies. His own charm and authority come through in spite of the hot-dog antics of the professional announcer. The production is remarkable for its freshness and provides two hours of upbeat help for any teenager who wants it.

Captivating
John Eldredge
0785207007
July 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Description

Every little girl has dreams of being rescued by the hero, of being swept away into a great adventure, of being the beautiful princess. Sadly, when women grow up, they are taught to be tough, efficient, and independent. Many Christian women are tired, struggling under the weight of the pressure to be a "good servant," a nurturing caregiver, passionate lover, or capable home manager.

What the Wild at Heart Field Manual did for men, the Captivating: A Guided Journal can do for women. By revealing the three distinctly female desires every woman shares, John and Stasi Eldredge invite participants to recover their feminine hearts, which may have suffered many wounds but were originally defined in the image of a passionate God.

Word Smart, 3rd Edition

Aug 2001
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The words people use say a lot about them. Some words say that they are smart, persuasive, and informed. Others say that they don't know what they're talking about. Knowing which words to use and how to use them are keys to getting the most from one's mind and to communicating effectively.

To find out which words readers absolutely need to know, The Princeton Review researched the vocabularies of educated adults. The Princeton Review analyzed newspapers from The New York Times to The Wall Street Journal, magazines from Time to Scientific American, and books from current bestsellers to classics. Editors threw out words that most people know and focused on the words that people misunderstand or misuse.

TPR also combed through the SAT and other standardized tests to...


And the Band Played on: Politics, People, and the AIDS Epidemic
Randy Shilts
0312241356
January 1988
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
In the first major book on AIDS, San Francisco Chronicle reporter Randy Shilts examines the making of an epidemic. Shilts researched and reported the book exhaustively, chronicling almost day-by-day the first five years of AIDS. His work is critical of the medical and scientific communities' initial response and particularly harsh on the Reagan Administration, who he claims cut funding, ignored calls for action and deliberately misled Congress. Shilts doesn't stop there, wondering why more people in the gay community, the mass media and the country at large didn't stand up in anger more quickly. The AIDS pandemic is one of the most striking developments of the late 20th century and this is the definitive story of its beginnings. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
