"The Strunk & White of academic writing."—Richard Bullock, Wright State University As employers, politicians, parents, and other citizens lament the decline of writing skills among Americans, this little book comes to the rescue. An instant bestseller when it first appeared as a college textbook, "They Say / I Say" gives writers precisely what they need to know in the all-important domain of persuasive writing. Cutting through the clutter of educational diagnoses and nostrums, it goes right to the heart of what writers most need to do, and that is to listen to what others are saying (they say), summarize it, and then offer their own argument (I say) as a response. Offering user-friendly templates to help writers make these key moves in their own writing, "They Say / I Say" is already being called the Strunk & White of persuasive writing.

What is wrong with Nicholas? Nothing is wrong with Nicholas, he just happens to have ADHD. Readers follow Nicholas, and his animated and sometimes comical clock companion, through a typical day. A day in which Nicholas loses a friend or two, talks too much, forgets his homework, gets sent to the principal's office, is teased by his peers, and feels all around inadequate. Readers can vividly view how the symptoms of ADHD accumulate and often follow a domino effect. Readers will also gain insight into the thoughts and feelings behind many of the behaviors exhibited by children who have ADHD. As reviewed by New York Times best-selling author Ellen Tanner Marsh Recently Mark Haddon wrote a book called The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, which made the unusual and imaginative leap of letting a boy with autism tell the story himself. Whether fictional or not, books about characters with one psychological dysfunction or another are typically written from the third-person point of view so that we learn the "truths" from someone other than the sufferer. In They Say I Have ADHD, I Say Life Sucks! Thoughts From Nicholas, Lisa-Anne Ray-Byers brilliantly and adeptly follows the same principle as Haddon, allowing Nicholas-a boy with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder-to tell his own story. Nicholas wonders, Why can't I be normal? In truth, disorganization and messiness go with being a kid, but Nicholas has been convinced of exactly the opposite by a mother and teachers who do not seem to understand childhood, nor how to accommodate Nicholas's actual "disorder." Fortunately, Ray-Byers has done an outstanding job telling this story in the first person, thus bringing much needed insight to the difficulties children with ADHD face from their waking hours until bedtime. To read this book is to learn to sympathize and certainly to gain a better understanding that may possibly lead to better treatment for those afflicted. For this reason alone, the value of this book cannot be overstated! About Lisa-Anne Lisa-Anne Ray-Byers is a native of the beautiful island of Bermuda.

A revelatory and timely look at how technology boosts our cognitive abilities—making us smarter, more productive, and more creative than ever It’s undeniable—technology is changing the way we think. But is it for the better? Amid a chorus of doomsayers, Clive Thompson delivers a resounding “yes.” In Smarter Than You Think, Thompson shows that every technological innovation—from the written word to the printing press to the telegraph—has provoked the very same anxieties that plague us today. We panic that life will never be the same, that our attentions are eroding, that culture is being trivialized. But, as in the past, we adapt—learning to use the new and retaining what is good of the old. Smarter Than You Think embraces and extols this transformation, presenting an exciting vision of the present and the future. From the Trade Paperback edition.
