Scheidungen, kein Kontakt zu den Kindern, Gefängnis wegen Betrugs - all das hat Harvard-Professor Clayton M. Christensen bei ehemaligen Kommilitonen gesehen und es hat ihn zum Nachdenken angeregt: Wie konnte es so weit kommen? Und wie macht man es besser? Seine Überlegungen führten Christensen zu den drei grundlegenden Fragen: Wie führe ich ein glückliches und sinnerfülltes Privatleben? Wie werde ich beruflich erfolgreich und habe Freude an meiner Arbeit? Und wie vermeide ich es, im Gefängnis zu landen? Er findet die Antworten in Wirtschaftstheorien, die er auf persönliche Lebensentscheidungen überträgt - so zum Beispiel die Einführung einer Familienkultur, um den eigenen Kindern Leitlinien an die Hand zu geben. Dabei gibt er jedoch nicht rigide Verhaltensregeln vor, sondern liefert Denkanstöße, mit deren Hilfe der Leser zu seiner ganz persönlichen, maßgeschneiderten Strategie für ein erfülltes und erfolgreiches Leben gelangt.

Selbst der Tod hat ein Herz ... Molching bei München. Hans und Rosa Hubermann nehmen die kleine Liesel Meminger bei sich auf – für eine bescheidene Beihilfe, die ihnen die ersten Kriegsjahre kaum erträglicher macht. Für Liesel jedoch bricht eine Zeit voller Hoffnung, voll schieren Glücks an – in dem Augenblick, als sie zu stehlen beginnt. Anfangs ist es nur ein Buch, das im Schnee liegen geblieben ist. Dann eines, das sie aus dem Feuer rettet. Dann Äpfel, Kartoffeln und Zwiebeln. Das Herz von Rudi. Die Herzen von Hans und Rosa Hubermann. Das Herz von Max. Und das des Todes. Denn selbst der Tod hat ein Herz. „Die Bücherdiebin“ ist eine Liebesgeschichte, eine Hommage an Bücher und Worte und eine Erinnerung an die Macht der Sprache, die im Roman von Markus Zusak viele Facetten zeigt: den lakonisch-distanzierten Ton des Erzählers, Poesie und Zuversicht – und die reduzierte Sprache der Nazipropaganda.

The articles presented in this book bring together educators’ work and experiences from around the world (Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, and Australia) in the context of teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL). This publication, therefore, offers a richness and diversity of contexts and experiences to its readers. What sets this book apart is its balance between and explicit coverage of both research and the theoretical and practical aspects of teaching. This project has been prompted by the increasing split between the fields of linguistics, literatures and English language teaching, and will uniquely address this gap. Additionally, the volume gives practical applications on how to use theories of linguistics and literary texts in the classroom. This book provides undergraduate and graduate students, teacher-learners, practicing teachers, and teacher educators some theoretical and contextual knowledge of English language teaching practices and settings. Articles in this book can be used as supplementary texts for courses in the areas of English Language Teaching, pre-service and in-service teacher education, applied linguistics, literature, and language and culture studies.

Approaching public communication from a liberal arts point of view, Speaking the Truth in Love provides a distinctly Christian perspective of rhetoric. Written and oral rhetoric are interwoven throughout the text. Two foundational ideas control the majority of the text. The first is from Plato's 'Phaedrus' as stated by Paul in Ephesians 4:15, Òspeaking the truth in love. The second is from the Apostle Peter in 1 Peter 4:11, Òif anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. The spiritual responsibility of communicating truth in accordance with the nature of God, especially the virtue of love, is an awesome privilege and opportunity. Sound content spoken or written eloquently with charisma will enable words to have a maximum impact.The text is designed to be a culminating learning experience for undergraduate communication programs or as an introductory text for graduate programs involving public communication. Beginning with a philosophy of language, meaning, and interaction, argument is built against secular deconstructive thought where everyone has a different truth based on language. Alongside philosophy we explore ethics and theology from an evangelical perspective. Following this a brief history outlines rhetorical thought from pre-testament classics to today. Based upon these ideas we take a closer look at communication theory as it relates to public communication. Finally, the text addresses the practice of both written and oral communication.
