NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JULIA ROBERTS, OWEN WILSON, AND JACOB TREMBLAY! Over 6 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller WONDER and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face. The book that inspired the Choose Kind movement. I won´t describe what I look like. Whatever you´re thinking, it´s probably worse. August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid-but his new classmates can´t get past Auggie´s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie´s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community´s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. ´´Wonder is the best kids´ book of the year,´´ said Emily Bazelon, senior editor at Slate.com and author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel ´´a meditation on kindness´´ -indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can´t blend in when you were born to stand out. Join the conversation: #thewonderofwonder

Health Justice Now: Single Payer and What Comes...

Single payer is the tool-health justice is the goal! Single payer healthcare is not complicated: the government pays for all care for all people. It´s cheaper than our current model, and most Americans (and their doctors) already want it. So what´s the deal with our current healthcare system, and why don´t we have something better? In Health Justice Now, Timothy Faust explains what single payer is, why we don´t yet have it, and how it can be won. He identifies the actors that have misled us for profit and political gain, dispels the myth that healthcare needs to be personally expensive, shows how we can smoothly transition to a new model, and reveals the slate of humane and progressive reforms that we can only achieve with single payer as the springboard. In this impassioned playbook, Faust inspires us to believe in a world where we could leave our job without losing healthcare for ourselves and our kids; where affordable housing is healthcare; and where social justice links arm-in-arm with health justice for us all.

Console Wars

A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR: NPR, Slate, Publishers Weekly, Goodreads Following the success of The Accidental Billionaires and Moneyball comes Console Wars-a mesmerizing, behind-the-scenes business thriller that chronicles how Sega, a small, scrappy gaming company led by an unlikely visionary and a team of rebels, took on the juggernaut Nintendo and revolutionized the video game industry. In 1990, Nintendo had a virtual monopoly on the video game industry. Sega, on the other hand, was just a faltering arcade company with big aspirations and even bigger personalities. But that would all change with the arrival of Tom Kalinske, a man who knew nothing about videogames and everything about fighting uphill battles. His unconventional tactics, combined with the blood, sweat and bold ideas of his renegade employees, transformed Sega and eventually led to a ruthless David-and-Goliath showdown with rival Nintendo. The battle was vicious, relentless, and highly profitable, eventually sparking a global corporate war that would be fought on several fronts: from living rooms and schoolyards to boardrooms and Congress. It was a once-in-a-lifetime, no-holds-barred conflict that pitted brother against brother, kid against adult, Sonic against Mario, and the US against Japan. Based on over two hundred interviews with former Sega and Nintendo employees, Console Wars is the underdog tale of how Kalinske miraculously turned an industry punchline into a market leader. It´s the story of how a humble family man, with an extraordinary imagination and a gift for turning problems into competitive advantages, inspired a team of underdogs to slay a giant and, as a result, birth a $60 billion dollar industry.

Start with No (eBook, ePUB)

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Start with No offers a contrarian, counterintuitive system for negotiating any kind of deal in any kind of situation-the purchase of a new house, a multimillion-dollar business deal, or where to take the kids for dinner. Think a win-win solution is the best way to make the deal? Think again. For years now, win-win has been the paradigm for business negotiation. But today, win-win is just the seductive mantra used by the toughest negotiators to get the other side to compromise unnecessarily, early, and often. Win-win negotiations play to your emotions and take advantage of your instinct and desire to make the deal. Start with No introduces a system of decision-based negotiation that teaches you how to understand and control these emotions. It teaches you how to ignore the siren call of the final result, which you can´t really control, and how to focus instead on the activities and behavior that you can and must control in order to successfully negotiate with the pros. The best negotiators: * aren´t interested in ´´yes´´-they prefer ´´no´´ * never, ever rush to close, but always let the other side feel comfortable and secure * are never needy; they take advantage of the other party´s neediness * create a ´´blank slate´´ to ensure they ask questions and listen to the answers, to make sure they have no assumptions and expectations * always have a mission and purpose that guides their decisions * don´t send so much as an e-mail without an agenda for what they want to accomplish * know the four ´´budgets´´ for themselves and for the other side: time, energy, money, and emotion * never waste time with people who don´t really make the decision Start with No is full of dozens of business as well as personal stories illustrating each point of the system. It will change your life as a negotiator. If you put to good use the principles and practices revealed here, you will become an immeasurably better negotiator.

Enjoy all three Outlaw Hartes stories together for the first time! New York Times bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne brings readers along on three heartwarming romantic journeys as the Harte siblings find their happily ever after. Originally titled The Valentine Two-Step , Taming Jesse James , and Cassidy Harte and the Comeback Kid. Star Valley Winter Single father Matt Harte learned the hard way not to trust women. His wife left him because she couldn´t deal with ranch life—so the last thing he wants to do is plan the annual Valentine´s Day dance. His daughter, Lucy, has plans for her father; she´s determined to get him to fall for beautiful vet and recent Salt River transplant Ellie Webster. Ellie knows that Matt doesn´t want her in his town, let alone on the too-small dance committee of two. It´s not as if she wants to spend all that one-on-one time with the rugged rancher, imagining what it would be like to be his partner—for real... Springtime in Salt River Jesse James Harte grew up as wild and untamed as his Old West namesake, but now he´s the law in this stretch of the Wyoming high country. That meant trouble is his business—and if he´d ever seen somebody in trouble, it was the town´s new schoolteacher, Sarah McKenzie. She is as beautiful as a mountain meadow in springtime. But the haunted look in her eyes says she´s running from something—something that might be catching up with her. He ached to protect her, to take that look away—and make her his forever. Return to Star Valley Ten years ago, Cassidy Harte had stood at the altar waiting for Zach Slater. And when he didn´t show up—and was said to have disappeared with her brother´s flirtatious wife—she did the only thing she could do. Held her head up high. Helped raise her motherless niece. And swore never to get involved with a man again. And then back into her life walked Zach—with an ´´I´m sorry” on his lips, an explanation she refused to hear and the vow that he would make her his once again. And this was one vow he was determined to keep....
