Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
The multitudes of Gary Paulsen fans (or more accurately, Brian fans) will be thrilled to find that the author has penned yet another story about Brian Robeson. Although Paulsen once claimed that he would "write no more about Brian," he seems to have been softened by the "staggering amounts of mail from readers" begging for more about the teen who is more at home alone in the wilderness than in the hustle and bustle of city life. In Brian’s Hunt, the 16-year-old returns to the remote woods and lakes of Canada, where he encounters a mysteriously injured dog. His experiences two years earlier, after surviving a plane crash and months alone with only a hatchet to protect and provide for himself (Hatchet, Brian’s Winter, etc.), have prepared him well to survive now. But can anything prime him for the horror that awaits...


Hunting Fear
Kay Hooper

Paperback

From Publishers Weekly
Hooper (Sense of Evil; Touching Evil; etc.) pits a team of psychic special agents against a diabolical serial killer in the first installment of her new Fear trilogy. Kidnapping would-be victims in Golden, N.C., the murderer sets up a torturous ending for them and then dares the lawmen to arrive in time for a last-second rescue. The primary agent assigned to stop the carnage is Lucas Jordan, who leads the investigation with a unique team of clairvoyant agents. He also gets a significant assist from Samantha Burke, a former lover who ends up on the case when she arrives in Golden working as a sideshow psychic for a traveling carnival. The initial chapters are rather boilerplate as Hooper focuses on the team's futile efforts to save local victims, but the action picks up when the murders turn personal and the...

From Publishers Weekly
In the thrilling fifth installment of Lindskold's Firekeeper fantasy saga, Firekeeper, a human girl raised by a pack of wise wolves, receives a message from Truth, an oracular jaguar, that Firekeeper is the only one who can help her regain her sanity, which was lost in battle in the previous book, Wolf Captured (2004). Firekeeper's wolflike sense of curiosity leads her to accept Truth's challenge, and she soon takes to the road accompanied by, among others, Blind Seer, her faithful wolf companion, and Darian Carter, a native of the land of Liglim. They seek to reunite Truth with her senses and to find out who belongs to the voice Truth is hearing in her head. With a smaller cast of characters and more interaction between animals, this volume is more tightly focussed than earlier entries in the series. The...

The Greatest Hunting Stories Ever Told: Twenty-Nine Unforgettable Tales

Book Review
If the captivating smile of a young Hemingway crouched over a lion isn't enough to pull you inside the covers of The Greatest Hunting Stories Ever Told, the remarkable prose you'll find throughout its pages will. Its target is serious writing, and it bags some powerful literary prey. Lamar Underwood, long an editor at Sports Afield and Outdoors, has assembled a stellar collection from the pens of Hemingway (naturally), Faulkner, Turgenev, Thomas McGuane, Vance Bourjaily, Patrick O'Brian, Robert Ruark, and Teddy Roosevelt, all of whose prose hunts for big answers as well as big game.

While clearly addressed to the fraternity of hunters, the essays and stories in this collection transcend the boundaries of the field. McGuane, writing passionately about how the hunt for food defines who we are in "The Heart of the Game,"...

Questions for Barbara Ehrenreich

Through over three decades of journalism and activism and over a dozen books, Barbara Ehrenreich has been one of the most consistent and imaginative chroniclers of class in America, but it was her bestselling 2001 book, Nickel and Dimed, a undercover expose of the day-to-day struggles of the working poor, that has been the most influential work of her career. Now, with Bait and Switch, she has gone undercover again, this time as a middle-aged professional trying to get a white-collar job in corporate America. We asked her a few questions about what she found:

Book Review
John Lucht, an executive recruiter during the past three decades for some of America's top corporations, knows what it takes to snag a new six-figure job. Rites of Passage at $100,000 to $1 Million+ is his newly revised guide to the ins and outs of a search for a job that ends in success. It promises a "comprehensive cram course in accelerating your career"--a contemporary corporate equivalent of the traditional initiation into adulthood from which it takes its title--updated for the cyber-age. And it delivers, with Lucht offering inside tips on the basic routes to a new executive-level position: personal contacts (i.e., "ask for a reference instead of a job"); networking ("never fail to get into the office of anyone whose name is mentioned to you, never depart with less than three new names"); executive recruiters...

"Close your eyes and…imagine what it would feel like to be happy and excited and fulfilled in your work." Can’t do it? Career coach Jansen’s no-nonsense volume just might help. Herself a former disgruntled employee (she worked in broadcasting, recruiting, outplacement and other fields), Jansen is a big proponent of jobs that suit: work, after all, "is not ‘one size fits all.’" She identifies six reasons people find their employ unsatisfying, from boredom with an overly familiar routine, to insecurity in the face of discrimination or a toxic boss, to lack of focus on work due to an eye on upcoming retirement. Several quizzes and questionnaires ("When you think about the things you find meaningful, what comes to mind?"; "Do you prefer to be the leader rather than have others lead"?) help...

Emily Post's the Etiquette Advantage in Business
Peggy Post
0060760028
May 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Could a better understanding of etiquette have prevented the Enron scandal? Well, lying to shareholders never constituted good manners in anyone's book, nor good business sense, so perhaps. Drawing such lines is what the Posts attempt in the early chapters of this updated version of their business etiquette book, where they equate good ethics with good business. But really, is the slope between saying that the boss is in a meeting (when he's not) and distorting P&L statements actually that slippery? In trying to suggest that it is, the early chapters of this book provide little helpful guidance on actionable business conduct and come dangerously close to mimicking an employee handbook. Once the authors leave behind the discussion of ethics, cubicle etiquette and general office building conduct-please, no singing...

101 Great Answers to the Toughest Interview Questions (101 Great Answers to the Toughest Interview Questions)
Ron Fry

February 1, 2000
Paperback

From Library Journal
Two more sources for job hunters. Both are useful, affordable guides to the interview process with different focuses. Fry's emphasis on one aspect of the procedure, the one-on-one interview (i.e., the selection rather than the screening), in a question-and-answer format offers a fresh, active approach to a timely subject. After two introductory chapters of guidelines, the author identifies the toughest themes of a successful encounter and provides proven responses in clear, readable text. In a revision of his comprehensive classic Sweaty Palms ( LJ 7/78), Medley updates his how-to handbook of job interviewing techniques, emphasizing skills and strategic planning. Although still verbose, the guide, however, gives full explanations of a wide coverage of tips from preparation and salary negotiation to issues of sex in...


Guided by Voices
Jim Greer

Nov 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Greer's celebration of Guided by Voices (and, therefore, of all things Robert Pollard) is an admirer's sincere, cocoonish labor of love, committed to telling how Pollard/GBV "came to be considered by some one of the truly great artists of our time." The keenness of Greer's interest ensures a detailed retelling of GBV history, from its start as a Dayton, Ohio, garage band (Pollard was then a fourth-grade teacher). Musicians have come and gone, but besides inspiring an impressive list of other acts, GBV has endured as one of the longest-running nineties indie-rock aggregations. Mainstream acceptance has been elusive, but reading Greer makes one think that overwhelming success could destroy the band's particular appeal. Of course, not a lot of discouraging words appear here, but those interested in maverick performers who...

Steve Bodio, Shooting Sportsman
If you haven't read this legendary little book, you might wonder if an essay originally written by a Spanish philosopher as an introduction to a friend's big game hunting memoirs could have any relevance to a modern bird hunter. I'd say it's not only "relevant', it's absolutely essential reading for any thoughtful hunter and fisherman. ...and now Wilderness Adventures has brought out what I think will be the standard: a beautiful slipcased edition, bound in fine cloth, with excellent pencil illustrations by Eldridge Hardie and a new foreword by Datus Proper. It's the one to own.
