by G.K. Chesterton
Chesterton is the most quoted modern writer, and for reason. He's written on everything with a style that's deep and light, witty and somber, humorous and convicting, poetic and prosaic... With Chesterton , I laugh and think.
In Manalive, Chesterton's childlike, enigmatic, and optimistic Innocent Smith restores the joy of being alive. This wierd fugitive, of sorts, interacts with "serious" folk (doctors, reporters...) whose dullness and cynicism contrast to his folly. Yet isn't Innocent Smith the cleverest of all: he knows the joy of daily life and how to keep it from getting dull. Readers, it's contagious.
by Dr. Kevin Leman
He's funny and the subject is intriguing. Birth order affects personality, marriage and relationships, parenting style, career, and children! Whether at home or on the job, birth order powerfully influences the way people interact with others and the world. An "ah ah" book that helps parents identify character traits common to oldest, youngest, and in between.

Try and pass on the magnitude of the D-Day embarkment. Eyewitness D-Day features interviews with more than 50 survivors and presents the harrowing inside story of June 6th, 1944, through the eyes of the courageous men and women who actually witnessed the fighting. Hundreds of contemporary photos, including wartime pictures of the veterans, and a detailed foldout map of the Normandy beaches, create a visually impressive record of the day and a glimpse of the sacrifice which bought our freedom.

Appreciative Inquiry is a change management approach that looks at what works well. Instead of focusing on the conventional question, “What is the problem?” AI explores the successes and the circumstances that make for these positive accomplishments. The prevailing goal is to identify how to make those great moments happen again. If an organization did it once, it can do it again.
Your and my home is one great organization. Sure, we all have challenges and a few bloopers. We have reasons to be proud too. Hammond’s Thin Book (only 63 pages) makes Appreciative Inquiry clear. That’s the first step to applying AI at home!
by Dr. Gary Chapman and Dr. Ross Campbell
We think we're loving our kids, but they don't seem to act like they're feeling loved. Yikes! Chapman and Campbell introduce five different communication styles which communicate love and respect: physical touch, affirmation, gifts, shared moments, and acts of service. Your love language may be different from your child's. Discover your child's primary language and learn what you can do to effectively convey unconditional feelings of respect, affection, and commitment that will resonate in your child's emotions and behavior.

by Joseph Michelli, Ph.D.
Does discipline have to be boring ? Not according to radio psychologist, lecturer, author, AND parent, Joseph Michelli. He presents humor and laughter as a means to reach parenting objectives…such as kids who respect boundaries and people.
The book intertwines the psychology of laughter, humorous personal stories (I found myself laughing out loud in the Paris metro), and out-of-the-box practical ideas for distressing common challenging situations between parents and kids.

by M.C. Escher and Maurits Cornelis Escher
Hands that draw each other. People walking up from the first floor to downstairs. It's possible with Escher. Described as the "architect of perfectly impossible worlds", the master of sureal perspectives and optical illusions shares his works. Of the 90 pages in this book, 70 are dedicated to full color photos of his works. Intriguing, magical, wierd, and technically superb.
Escher (1898-1972) continues to teach every generation a new perspective. He's a modern way to encourage kids to respect older generations!

When I first approached the Bible, the numbers in the text and the language distracted me. (People refer to specific Bible verses according to these numbers.) The Message presents the text in paragraph form which facilitates the reading. The langauge used is what you and I hear every day. This contemporary vocabulary renders the Biblical texts evocative and intriguing. I re-discover Biblical texts through this translation.
