Eleven rings : the soul of success / Phil Jackson and Hugh Delehanty
During his storied career as head coach of the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers Phil Jackson won more championships than any coach in the history of professional sports. Even more important he succeeded in never wavering from coaching his way from a place of deep values. Jackson was tagged as the Zen master half in jest by sportswriters but the nickname speaks to an important truth: this is a coach who inspired not goaded who led by awakening and challenging the better angels of his players' nature not their egos fear or greed. This is the story of a preacher's kid from North Dakota who grew up to be one of the most innovative leaders of our time. In his quest to reinvent himself Jackson explored everything from humanistic psychology and Native American philosophy to Zen meditation. In the process he developed a new approach to leadership based on freedom authenticity and selfless teamwork that turned the hypercompetitive world of professional sports on its head.--From publisher description

Their jobs were shrouded in mystery but they were buoyed by a sense of shared purpose close friendships and a surplus of handsome scientists and Army men. But against this wartime backdrop a darker story was unfolding. The penalty for talking about their work even the most innocuous details was job loss and eviction. One woman was recruited to spy on her coworkers. They all knew something big was happening at Oak Ridge but few could piece together the true nature of their work until the bomb Little Boy was dropped over Hiroshima Japan and the secret was out. The shocking revelation: the residents of Oak Ridge were enriching uranium for the atomic bomb. Though the young women originally believed they would leave Oak Ridge after the war many met husbands there made lifelong friends and still call the seventy-year-old town home. The reverberations from their work there work they did not fully understand at the time are still being felt today

Wave / Sonali Deraniyagala
On the morning of December 26 2004 on the southern coast of Sri Lanka Sonali Deraniyagala lost her parents her husband and her two young sons in the tsunami she miraculously survived. In this brave and searingly frank memoir she describes those first horrifying moments and her long journey since.

Before Watchmen : Minutemen/Silk Spectre / Darwyn Cooke Amanda Conner writers Darwyn Cooke Amanda Connor artists Phil Noto Paul Mounts colorists
The prequels to the best-selling graphic novel of all-time are finally here: BEFORE WATCHMEN! For over twenty years the back stories of the now-iconic characters from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon's landmark graphic novel had been the subject of much debate and theorizing. Now DC Comics has assembled the greatest creators in the industry to further paint the world of WATCHMEN starting with this first volume starring MINUTEMEN and SILK SPECTRE. The critically acclaimed and Eisner Award-winning creator of DC: THE NEW FRONTIER Darwyn Cooke lends his talents MINUTEMEN. As the predecessor to the Watchmen the Minutemen were assembled to fight against a world that have more and more rapidly begun to spin out of control. Can these heroes from completely different backgrounds and with completely different attitudes on crime come together? Or will they fall apart before they begin? SILK SPECTRE takes an introspective look at the WATCHMEN feature player's struggles with her overbearing superhero mother and her scattered path toward taking the mantle of the Silk Spectre. With gorgeous art by co-writer and illustrator Amanda Conner (POWER GIRL The Pro) SILK SPECTRE takes a very different perspective at the world of BEFORE WATCHMEN

Cross roads : a novel / by Wm. Paul Young
" Anthony Spencer is egotistical proud of being a self-made business success at the peak of his game even though the cost of winning was painfully high. A cerebral hemorrhage leaves Tony comatose in a hospital ICU. He 'awakens' to find himself in a surreal world a 'living' landscape that mirrors dimensions of his earthly life from the beautiful to the corrupt. It is here that he has vivid interactions with others he assumes are projections of his own subconscious but whose directions he follows nonetheless with the possibility that they might lead to authenticity and perhaps redemption. The adventure draws Tony into deep relational entanglements where he is able to 'see' through the literal eyes and experiences of others but is blind to the consequences of hiding his personal agenda and loss that emerge to war against the processes of healing and trust. Will this unexpected coalescing of events cause Tony to examine his life and realize he built a house of cards on the poisoned grounds of a broken heart? Will he also have the courage to make a critical choice that can undo a major injustice he set in motion before falling into a coma? -- Provided by publisher;"" William Paul Young author of the international bestseller THE SHACK tells a story of the incremental transformation of a man caught in the torments of his own creation somewhere between heaven and earth. -- Provided by publisher"""

To sell is human : the surprising truth about moving others / Daniel H. Pink
" From the bestselling author of Drive and A Whole New Mind comes an exploration of the power of selling which each of us does every day--whether we know it or not. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics one in nine Americans works in sales. More than fifteen million people earn their keep by convincing someone else to make a purchase. But dig deeper and a startling truth emerges: Yes one in nine Americans works in sales--but so do the other eight out of nine. Whether we're entrepreneurs persuading funders employees pitching colleagues or parents and teachers cajoling kids we spend our days trying to move others. Today like it or not we're all in sales. Or as Daniel H. Pink puts it everyone is in the moving business. In this provocative book Pink offers a fresh look at the art and science of selling. He shows that sales whether pushing a product or peddling an idea isn't what it used to be. Because of powerful economic changes the glad-handing truth-bending form of sales is a relic. In its place is a new approach to moving people that involves three very human qualities and four surprising skills. As he did in Drive and A Whole New Mind Pink lays out the science for his counterintuitive insights offers vivid examples and stories and provides readers with tools to put the ideas into action. Smart yet accessible bold yet well argued this is the first book on sales for people who've never read a book about sales. It will change how you see your world and transform what you do at work at school and at home -- Provided by publisher;"" In the tradition of his bestselling book Drive a revolutionary look at the art of selling.

The author takes readers from a bell tower high above St. Peter's to the depths of the basilica and the Saint's burial place from the politicking surrounding the election of a new pope and the ever-growing sexual abuse scandals around the world to controversies about the Vatican's stand on contraception and more

Why priests? : a failed tradition / Garry Wills
In his most provocative book yet Pulitzer Prize?-winner Garry Wills asks the radical question: Why do we need priests? Author Wills spent five years as a young man at a Jesuit seminary and nearly became a priest himself. But after a lifetime of study and reflection he now poses some challenging questions: Why do we need priests at all? Why did the priesthood arise in a religion that began without it and opposed it? Would Christianity be stronger without the priesthood as it was at its outset? Meticulously researched persuasively argued and certain to spark debate Why Priests? asserts that the anonymous Letter to Hebrews a late addition to the New Testament canon helped inject the priesthood into a Christianity where it did not exist along with such concomitants as belief in an apostolic succession the real presence in the Eucharist the sacrificial interpretation of the Mass and the ransom theory of redemption. But Wills does not expect the priesthood to fade entirely away. He just reminds us that Christianity did without it in the time of Peter and Paul with notable success.--From publisher description

ZEALOT : the life and times of Jesus of Nazareth / Reza Aslan
Sifting through centuries of mythmaking Reza Aslan sheds new light on one of history's most influential and enigmatic characters by examining Jesus through the lens of the tumultuous era in which he lived: first-century Palestine an age awash in apocalyptic fervor. Scores of Jewish prophets preachers and would-be messiahs wandered through the Holy Land bearing messages from God. This was the age of zealotry--a fervent nationalism that made resistance to the Roman occupation a sacred duty incumbent on all Jews. And few figures better exemplified this principle than the charismatic Galilean who defied both the imperial authorities and their allies in the Jewish religious hierarchy

Super immunity : the essential nutrition guide for boosting your body's defenses to live longer stronger and disease free / Joel Fuhrman
Every year in September the spectre of cold and flu season arrives. It has become a fact of life. We might as well allot for our sick days knowing that we will be hit at least once if not two to three times before Spring's arrival. In every office and in every family there are those who get sick regularly and those who manage to stay healthy through it all. In Super Immunity Dr. Fuhrman will explain why some of us get sick more regularly than others and offer a proven program to stay healthy through the year. Dr. Fuhrman argues that our current approach to disease is doing far more harm than good. He asserts that flu shots antibiotics supplements and alternative treatments are not the answer and can actually make us more sick. He explains why our current efforts are failing us. The truth is far too many have depleted or compromised immune systems. This is no surprise given antibiotics are prescribed with every cough and sniffle and it is too easy to get simply stuck in a vicious cycle of a cold or flu that passes from one family or office member to the next before you have a chance to get healthy again. The answer he suggests is as simple as what we eat. Super Immunity offers a detailed proven and easy-to-follow program for escaping the sick bug and returning us to health and well-being. There is no need to dread the first Fall day cringe at the first back to school sniffle or call your doctor and schedule that flu shot. Super Immunity is a medical break-through that will work for you. Isn't it time you became the one who stays healthy during flu season? -- Provided by publisher

Breakpoint : why the web will implode search will be obsolete and everything else you need to know about technology is in your brain / Jeff Stibel
What can the human brain and its relationship to the internet tell us about our society our technologies and our businesses? A lot as it turns out. The internet today is a virtual replica of the brain and the networks that leverage it grow and collapse in ways that are easily predictable if you understand the brain and other biological networks. We're living in the midst of a networking revolution. All of the major technology innovations of the 21st century--social networking cloud computing search engines and crowdsourcing to name a few--leverage the internet and are thus bound by the rules of networks. We've seen the exponential growth of these technologies and they've led to a more efficient and tightly connected world. But what many people don't realize is that all networks eventually reach a breakpoint and collapse. This happens in the brain it happens in nature it happened to MySpace and it will happen to Facebook and Google. It is critical to understand where the breakpoint is in the networks you use in order to achieve optimum success. Navigating the world of new technologies today can be like walking through a minefield unless you know the path. Imagine what you could do with a roadmap for where things are headed? In this fascinating look at the future of business and technology neuroscientist and entrepreneur Jeff Stibel shows how the brain can act as a guide to understanding the future of the internet and the constellation of businesses and technologies that run on it. He'll show how leaders like Marissa Mayer are using artificial intelligence to literally remake Yahoo! and how startups like oDesk and Kickstarter are using crowdsourcing the next wave of revolutionary technology to create something much larger and smarter than the sum of their parts.
