360 Degree Leader: Developing Your Influence from Anywhere in the Organization
John C. Maxwell
0785260927
January 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
In this latest treatise, leadership mega-guru Maxwell (The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership) taps a rich vein of corporate angst: the plight of the middle manager, saddled with responsibilities but lacking real power, torn by conflicting tasks and time-management dilemmas, seething with thwarted ambition. As Macbeth shows, it's a predicament fraught with tragic potential, but the staid, platitudinous treatment given it by Maxwell and ghostwriter Charlie Wetzel drains away the drama. They generally counsel acceptance of limitations. Maxwell tells middle managers to work diligently in subordinate positions, support the CEO's vision, find the good in incompetent or malevolent leaders, infiltrate their bosses' emotional lives ("Listen to your leader's heartbeat.... What makes them laugh?... Cry?.... Sing?") and...


Broken Prey
John Sandford

May 2006
Mass Market Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Sandford sends series hero Lucas Davenport's family off to London to ensure that domestic concerns never slow the action in this sexy, bloody thriller. Davenport, a Minnesota State Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator, had lately been doing political fix-it jobs for the governor, but this time he's got a psychopathic serial killer on his hands. ("All major metro areas had them, sometimes two and three at a time. The public had the impression that they were rare. They weren't.") The first victim, a young woman, was "scourged" with a wire whip; number two, a young man, had his penis cut off. Evidence first points to recently released sex offender Charlie Pope. Though Charlie is pretty dumb and the killer is extremely smart, it takes Davenport and his series partner, Detective Sloan, a while to realize...

Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul
John Eldredge
0785264698
April 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
John Eldredge became the Robert Bly of evangelicalism with his blockbuster Wild at Heart. Now he teams up with his wife, Stasi, to encourage women to connect with their deepest desires. To facilitate this, the Eldredges reveal in the first chapter what every woman's three core desires are: to be romanced, to play a role in her own adventures and to display beauty. (This formula will be familiar to Eldredge's fans, as Wild at Heart offered a similar tripartite model of men's desires.) The rest of the book is an extended reflection on these three impulses. Drawing heavily on popular films to prove their points, the Eldredges warn that most women tend to become either controlling or needy. Godly women, in contrast, should see God as the ultimate lover, and look to Eve (and not, say, J. Lo) as their model. Also, women should form...

Junie B. Jones Is a Graduation Girl (Junie B. Jones Series #17)

Paperback

Book Review
Junie B. Jones and all of Room 9 are getting ready to graduate from kindergarten! Their teacher--known to our heroine as "Mrs."--distributes their fresh white caps and gowns ("Cats and gowns, cats and gowns!" Junie hollers), and makes her students promise to keep them in their boxes until the big day. But Junie B., being Junie B., is sure that just one peek on the way home won't soil her gown. And then she must show off to her stuffed animals with a lot of whirling and skipping, which of course makes her thirsty. But guess what? "Grape juice can go wrong."

The 17th title in Barbara Park's popular Junie B. Jones beginning chapter book series is filled with more messy antics from the irrepressible 6-year-old with the rather unusual speaking style. She may be trouble, but Junie B. Jones has definite six-appeal. Don't miss...



Microbial Safety of Minimally Processed Foods
Daniel K. Gay
1587160412
Jan 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
While minimally processed foods satisfy the increasing demand for foods with fewer preservatives, higher nutritive value, and fresh sensory attributes, they also carry a greater risk of diseases if they are improperly handled. This book explores novel food-borne disease prevention solutions from the perspectives of food producers, handlers, consumers, inspectors, and researchers. It reports on the latest research on assuring the microbial safety of meats, poultry, fish, vegetables, fruits, and bakery products that receive less than stringent sterilizing preparation. It also explores methods used for pathogen detection and preventing future pathogen occurrences and evaluates HACCP regulations and risk assessments.

The Animal Rescue Club (I Can Read Chapter Book Series)
John Himmelman
0064442241
April 1999
Paperback
·
 
From School Library Journal
Grade 1-3AIn this beginning reader, the young members of the Animal Rescue Club help a squirrel drowning in mud, an opossum stuck in a rooftop gutter, and a goose with a wounded foot. The creatures are taken to an animal hospital where an adult oversees their care. After they have recovered, the children release the creatures back into their habitats. Cartoon illustrations show the club in action. Although an author's note explains that it is dangerous to approach injured animals and that wildlife rehabilitators must be trained and licensed, adults do not assist with the rescues and no mention of training is made in the narrative. The images in the story contrast with the warnings: a youngster rides his bike with a squirrel peeking out of his backpack, a boy totters on a high ladder with an opossum clinging...
