Book Summary:

From award-winning author Tera Lynn Childs comes a sweet, sassy story about friendship, fame, and how far one girl will go to prove she’s broken the pattern. “Seriously, this book was just plain fun and it would make an excellent movie. Hint, Hint, Hollywood.” — Nat at Bibliojunkies Every girl deserves a little revenge… Bethany Lange knows a thing or twelve about gay men. The Southern belle turned city girl has dated five of them. So when a friend offers her a consulting job on a new gay makeover show, she snatches up the golden opportunity faster than you can say, “Never wear stripes with paisley.” Color her déjà blue when one of the cast members turns out to be her latest ex. Bethany doesn’t believe for a second that he’s actually gay and she vows to reveal the truth, even if she has to stalk him to get the proof. She finds an unlikely partner in Chris, the show’s kitchen god. He’s sweet, sexy, and funny. The perfect—and perfectly unavailable—guy. Between the long talks and late-night stakeouts, she’s finding it harder and harder to resist being attracted to him. As the stalking and the stakes escalate, can Bethany prove she’s a closet cleaner no more? Can she stop falling for unavailable guys and find one that’s a perfect fit? Only time—and stalking—will tell. Straight Stalk is a standalone book in the City Chicks series, a romantic chick lit romp perfect for fans of The Devil Wears Prada, Janet Evanovich, and Queer Eye. Praise for Straight Stalk “The big city setting is perfect for these kinds of romances, and the writing is wonderful ... I cannot wait to read more.” — The YA Lit Chick “I will be putting the rest of Tera Lynn Childs' books onto my to-read list” — Shelby on Goodreads “A very funny, light read, that keeps you guessing, laughing, and cheering for Bethany all the way.” — Jessie on Goodreads “I loved this book so much!” — Abbie on Goodreads “This was amazing!” — Nadette on Goodreads

Book Summary:

Finally! A Man Speaks to Men. Never have books promised to pry men away from their six-packs and remote controls to take a two-part course on the sport of seduction. As an author who has given new meaning to the word 'touch down' , he shows you how to 'touch her'. No subject is off-limits --- or out of bounds. So ladies, get ready to play ball!! Straight Talk: Volume One Playing For Keeps ***How To Love A Woman And Make Her Love You Back*** Round One - The Try-Outs In this first of two sizzling volumes, Wright gives raw tutorials on winning a woman's affections. In locker room voice former pro basketball player Gerry Wright answers all the questions that aspiring Casanovas are dying (but too proud) to ask. From what to wear, to how to smell, to how to equip the bachelor pad, Volume I gets a man to first base ---without striking out. Loaded with clever, hard-nosed information, Straight Talk elevates men from sitting on life's bleachers as all of the quality babes walk by to becoming an All-Star at love. Unlike books like Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, this two-book series deals with the real world, and gives the low down of what women really want --- in "guy talk"! Crammed with nuggets of practical information spiked with sporting terms, Playing For Keeps is savvy, sexy, and funny. Straight Talk: Volume Two Papa's Got A Brand New Bag ***A Man's Guide To Lovin' His Woman Down*** Round Two - The Knockout Volume I Straight Talk: Playing For Keeps got a fellow's foot in the door and into her head ---- Volume II Papa's Got A Brand New Bag pitches step-by-step details on how to perform in her bed. Gerry Wright, personal trainer and former pro basketball player gets straight to the point --- most men are lousy lovers. Perceptive, real and wise, in Volume II Wrigt teaches men the blow-by-blow moves that leave a woman crying "time-out!" In the same no-holds-barred locker room style of Volume I, Wright explicitly coaches mankind on the sensual techniques to win over the opposite sex. Based on the shared experiences on different continents as Wright played basketball, he delivers the low down on the sexual "left hooks" and "curve balls" - that American women are dying for men to throw. More than a primer on body parts (and yes) oral sex the book also instructs men to listen to their partners. Perceptive, clever, and graphic --- Wright's instincts brand him as America's personal trainer at love. Wright's hand size (a full 11 1/4 inches spread) afforded him the ability to earn Sports Illustrated notoriety as a slam-dunk king. In two erotically raw volumes he gives tips that will have women in the palm of your hand (regardless of how many inches you're wielding). Wright's coaching a new team of men --- and, frankly fellows, she won't be trading you to another team after you read Wright's Straight Talk. Letter to Gerry Wright: Dear Mr. Wright, I went to a little book store called "Consider The Alternatives" on Thursday, April 19, looking for a book about relationships. I told Judy, the owner, that I have read many books to try to understand my man. And I couldn't seem to find one about women for men to read that wasn't just about sex. She called me at my home the very next day and left me a message that two books came in about the subject we were discussing and would I mind coming and taking them to read and review. I went to the store the very next day and read the cover letter, then the contents of the books. I immediately took them home to read. I am 2/3 through Volume 1 and I can't put it down. You must promote this book every where. Your book is heroic to all of us who have been criticized for saying the things you had the balls to say and say it straight. These two books must be marketed ASAP. Get the word out! Thank-you so much for your gift to men and women. Your reward is very great. T.R.

Book Summary:

So begins this collection of Stéphane Dion's speeches from 1996 to 1998. Organized around four central themes, Straight Talk shows the breadth and strength of Dion's convictions. Dion believes that Canada is first and foremost a nation of caring people, in contrast to the image projected by the endless, dry constitutional debate. He argues that the melding of diversity and unity that is the basis of this nation is possible only because of the particular federalism that Canadians have invented. This federalism, however, is far from perfect and it is the responsibility of government to continue to work to improve it, always remembering that its core must be the quality of service it provides to Canadians. Dion believes that the Quebec question is not a constitutional question but one that concerns identity: many francophones believe that their identity and culture are not respected in the rest of Canada and see the anglophone majority as a force for assimilation, while many in other provinces feel that separatists do not share the same values of openness and tolerance. He believes strongly that the secession process the Parti Québecois has proposed - effecting independence on the basis of incorrect legal theory, an unclear referendum question, and a majority of fifty percent plus one - is difficult to reconcile with democracy and raises questions that must be discussed openly and resolved democratically. Straight Talk is a refreshingly honest and frank discussion about a matter that has been at the forefront of Canadian's thoughts for too many years.

Book Summary:

In writing the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, our Founding Fathers established a democratic republic with a solid political basis. What they wrote was the political map that future representatives would need to follow to conduct the people's business in an efficient and effective manner. As long as they faithfully carried out the people's will, our democracy and republic would function in a way congruent with our forebears' wishes. What in the world happened? H. John Lyke, a board-certified psychologist and professor emeritus at Metropolitan State College of Denver, and the author of multiple political psychology books, suggests that ever since George Washington retired as captain of our ship of state, subsequent presidents and members of Congress have failed to use the sailing chart of the Constitution. Instead, they've chosen to pursue their own and their political parties' self-interests. Lyke uses psychological principles to explore the reasons why our government has fallen so low, and in the voice of a kind but determined therapist, he offers simple and viable solutions to get us back to following our map.

Book Summary:

Your #1 goal should be to have money for retirement. We all want the finer things in life; we are a society obsessed with instant gratification. However, all of your decisions (the financial ones, at least) should be primarily based on both your future and your retirement. With this as an overall theme, this book will walk you down the road to retirement, providing you with options and choices that are most appropriate for your particular situation. No one said the road would be easy, but do not worry, we will face those speed bumps head on, and we will do it together. The best time to start planning for retirement is now! A significant change in the last 20 years is the position of global investments. In 1990, 75 percent of investment opportunities were in the United States and 25 percent in other places around the world. Currently, it is almost the opposite with about 75 percent of the opportunities outside the United States. The U.S. is still the #1 financial leader in the world. Japan is #2. In 2010, China overtook Germany to become #3. We need to recognize that other countries are maturing and we want to make sure you have considered all investment opportunities that exist. By the end of this book, you will be comfortable enough to make your own decisions regarding your investments. If you are not, it will allow you to be comfortable asking any financial consultant the right questions. This book is about giving you new tools. So, we brought in Morningstar® to enable you to evaluate your options and introduced a global perspective to help you maximize potential returns. Think of it this way: if this were your favorite coffee blend (with all the right ingredients), you would want a refill.

Book Summary:

Parents these days are under a great deal of pressure to be "perfect." From psychologists to social scientists, journalists to weekend bloggers, everyone has an opinion about the do's and don'ts for raising healthy, well-adjusted--and let's not forget, polite--children in today's fast-paced world. Where does this leave parents? Too often, lacking in confidence, ill equipped, and overwhelmed. Parenting expert Vicki Hoefle makes the bold claim that it's time for parents to get off the perfection path and get back to the real job of parenting: to grow a grown-up. In this no-nonsense parenting guide, Hoefle draws upon twenty-five years of experience with helping parents see the big picture and sidestep what she calls the "detail drama" that too often trumps everyday life with our kids. Parents learn more than just strategies; they learn a methodology that allows them to help their toddlers build a strong foundation for success in adulthood. In her trademark, tell-it-like-it-is style, Hoefle tells parents to trust their intuition and develop an intentional strategy for meeting each child's unique needs. Above all, The Straight Talk on Parenting offers the confidence-boosting reminder that parenting is about practice (and a healthy dose of humor), not perfection.

Book Summary:

After the September 11th terrorist attacks and anthrax scare of 2001, the need to prepare for the possibility of terrorist attacks using nuclear, biological, chemical, or radiological weapons has become increasingly apparent. Written in plain language by a former Army NBC officer, this book dispels several media-propagated myths and tells the real story about what people can and cannot do to protect themselves and their families. Beahm provides handy checklists of household or other useful items, safety procedures, action plans, and emergency planning guides. Each section contains frequently asked questions to provide readers with the essential information they need to prepare their homes, offices, and communities, such as what to look for and where to buy protective equipment; how to find shelter at a designated shelter-in-place; how to construct a safe room and what to stock; and what to do when it’s time to evacuate their home. This book will simultaneously reassure citizens alarmed by the terrorist threat and give them concrete steps to take to feel safer at home and at work.

Book Summary:

Why can't we think straight about the big issues that face our society? Why are we taken in by the phony arguments of populists and scammers? Where are the philosophers hiding when we need them to tell us what makes sense? They are hiding because they have nothing to say. The airy-fairy answers offered by writers of footnotes to Plato were wrong two thousand years ago, and they are still wrong now. All this time, we should have been listening to a different but equally venerable branch of matter-of-fact philosophy pioneered by the much-maligned philosopher Epicurus. His ideas were suppressed in ancient times as heretical, but the development of the theory of games and decisions makes it timely for those of us who care about science to revive his style of thinking–not just about the world around us but about ourselves as well. The price of transferring our allegiance to Epicurus and his modern followers is that we can no longer enjoy the luxury of being told what we want to hear. It would be nice if we were really equipped with a hotline to a metaphysical world of transcendental ideals, but the truth is that we are just the flotsam left behind on the beach when the evolutionary tide went out, and we have to get real about what will and will not work for our imperfect species before it is too late. This book is an attempt to point the way. It has no equations and very little jargon; nor does it pull any punches, either in explaining how game theory works or in exposing the follies of famous metaphysicians.

Book Summary:

Every church wants to experience the fullness of God, but many feel discomfort and confusion when the question of gifts of the Holy Spirit is raised. What does it mean to move in the power of the Holy Spirit? Isn't the issue of gifts of the Spirit divisive to evangelical churches? Straight Talk on Spiritual Power begins with Bill Hull's own theological journey from being a student at a charismatic university to a cessationist to a pastor with a moderate position affirming the full ministry of the Holy Spirit in the church today. Using Jesus as the ultimate model, Hull searches the Scriptures and finds a consistent balance between the Word of God and the power of the Spirit. He shares the gradual change in his own church as it grew to experience the gospel with power, the Holy Spirit, and deep conviction. Conscious of the fears and confusion often surrounding this topic, Hull carefully looks at topics such as speaking in tongues, baptism in the Holy Spirit, healing, prophecy, and miracles, and offers thorough scriptural as well as practical instruction.
