When she died, Christine O'Gara left behind a fragile, fractured family—estranged, embittered and at odds over custody of her only child. But in time, they'll see that Christine's legacy is strong enough to finally give a young girl the father she deserves. Cora, Christine's mother—No stranger to loss, she's desperate to do right by her daughter and she'll fight with everything she's got. Lexie, Christine's daughter—Torn between grief and rage at the thought of living with the man who abandoned them, she's planning revenge. Alex, Christine's ex-husband—Never truly believed in his own worth…or understood what Christine saw in him. He'd tried to return to her, but he'd been turned away. Only now can he come back and prove Christine right. We can't choose our family. We can learn to deserve the love we crave from them.

Ostensibly a book about therapy dogs, this thoughtful work also looks at the shortcomings of nursing-home life. Dog lovers will enjoy the antics of Hugo's chocolate Lab, who is a great icebreaker at a home, and will learn that dogs needn't be perfectly behaved to be good in their role (far from it, in this case). Readers also learn that residents too often can be neglected by family, even those who live nearby, and that the effects of this neglect are huge in already severely circumscribed lives. Teens volunteering, or contemplating it, at nursing homes and hospitals, as well as social-studies students, will get a great deal out of this sympathetic volume and will be much more understanding and able to help residents/patients in practical but small ways.

National Book Critics Circle Award Winner New York Times Bestseller A New York Times Notable Book of the Year A Washington Post Notable Nonfiction Book of the Year A Boston Globe Best Book of 2016 A Chicago Review of Books Best Nonfiction Book of 2016 From the Civil War to our combustible present, acclaimed historian Carol Anderson reframes our continuing conversation about race, chronicling the powerful forces opposed to black progress in America. As Ferguson, Missouri, erupted in August 2014, and media commentators across the ideological spectrum referred to the angry response of African Americans as "black rage,†? historian Carol Anderson wrote a remarkable op-ed in The Washington Post suggesting that this was, instead, "white rage at work. With so much attention on the flames," she argued, "everyone had ignored the kindling." Since 1865 and the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment, every time African Americans have made advances towards full participation in our democracy, white reaction has fueled a deliberate and relentless rollback of their gains. The end of the Civil War and Reconstruction was greeted with the Black Codes and Jim Crow; the Supreme Court's landmark 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision was met with the shutting down of public schools throughout the South while taxpayer dollars financed segregated white private schools; the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965 triggered a coded but powerful response, the so-called Southern Strategy and the War on Drugs that disenfranchised millions of African Americans while propelling presidents Nixon and Reagan into the White House, and then the election of America's first black President, led to the expression of white rage that has been as relentless as it has been brutal. Carefully linking these and other historical flashpoints when social progress for African Americans was countered by deliberate and cleverly crafted opposition, Anderson pulls back the veil that has long covered actions made in the name of protecting democracy, fiscal responsibility, or protection against fraud, rendering visible the long lineage of white rage. Compelling and dramatic in the unimpeachable history it relates, White Rage will add an important new dimension to the national conversation about race in America.

An evolved civilization existed in India, much before the advent of Roman, Greek, Egyptian or Chinese civilizations in this world. And, yet, India is the only country among them, which went into subjugation, in the last millennium. This book gives an insight into its reasons. It also brings out, why Indians are brilliant individually, but collectively, they belong to a third world country. It dwells on their strength and weaknesses developed over 6000 years, which remain unspoken or spoken in disguise. Also, it reflects on the reasons why great men like Shiv, Ganesh, Hanuman and Krishna, who were born just like Christ, Mohammed and Buddha were consigned into mythology. The readers may find much rationality in its bold attempt to ‘reveal the harsh truth’. It also provides thought-provoking solutions, to ponder and act.

“What can animals tell us about God? Do animals have souls? . . . Hunt offers a compelling story that asks both questions . . . Poignant” (Publishers Weekly). Glee Granger has spent the last eight years of her life entirely focused on Sema, a gorilla that Glee has been teaching sign language. Though Sema isn’t the first gorilla to use sign language, Glee has pushed their interaction to breakthrough levels. Technically, however, Sema belongs to the zoo where she was born—and the zoo wants its gorilla back. Unwilling to be separated from Sema, Glee joins the zoo staff and sees that it’s not as drastic a change as she first thought. That is until a near-death experience overturns everything Glee thought she knew about humans and animals, the seen and the unseen, the spoken and the unspoken. Suddenly, Glee has become the student and Sema the teacher . . . A Christy Award–winning author, “Hunt knows how to craft believable, interesting characters, and readers will find themselves drawn to the lovable Sema, the conflicted Glee and Glee’s scripture-spouting ‘Nana,’ the proprietor of a Florida motel” (Publishers Weekly).

"This country is fairly crowded with doctors, families, and patients—all possessed of good intentions—failing to achieve the simple goal of allowing people to die with dignity and grace." In the 1970s, most Americans died swiftly and brutally: of heart attacks, strokes, cancer, or in accidents. But in the past three decades, medical advances have extended our lives and changed the way we die. In Last Rights, Stephen Kiernan reveals the disconnect between how patients want to live the end of life—pain free, functioning mentally and physically, surrounded by family and friends—and how the medical system continues to treat the dying—with extreme interventions, at immense cost, and with little regard to pain, human comforts, or even the stated wishes of patients and families. Backed with surveys, interviews, and intimate portraits of people from all walks of life, from the dying and their families to the doctors and nurses who care for them, this book will be for our time what Elizabeth Kubler-Ross's books were for a previous generation.

From "America's nerviest journalist" (Newsweek)--a breath-taking epic, a magnificent adventure story, and an investigation into the true heroism and courage of the first Americans to conquer space. "Tom Wolfe at his very best" (The New York Times Book Review) Millions of words have poured forth about man's trip to the moon, but until now few people have had a sense of the most engrossing side of the adventure; namely, what went on in the minds of the astronauts themselves - in space, on the moon, and even during certain odysseys on earth. It is this, the inner life of the astronauts, that Tom Wolfe describes with his almost uncanny empathetic powers, that made The Right Stuff a classic.
