A scout’s iconoclastic views of basketball, love, and American culture. Brimming with truth, humor, and humanity, bestselling author Charley Rosen lays bare the trials and tribulations of anyone who loves sports for the game of it, not the business. Naturally sarcastic, a touch disillusioned, but always the idealist, Rob Lassner is an NBA scout who must assess the potential of high school and college players while appeasing a “shit-for-brains” owner who wouldn’t know a crosscourt pass if it knocked the silver spoon out of his blathering mouth. Scout’s Honor is the story of one man’s attempt to balance his love for the purity of basketball with the below-the-rim bullshit side of the game that pays his bills. With charming irreverence and colorful prose, Rosen’s novel is steeped in both literary richness and the art of the jump shot.

A bright young man with cerebral palsy has his destiny intertwined with Princess Diana’s. Visiting a school for disabled boys, the future Princess Diana singles out wheelchair-bound Alex to dance with—a five-minute encounter that colors the rest of his life, though quickly forgotten by her. Alex, a survivor of severe school bullying, thinks constantly of the tall girl with blue eyes—until one day he sees her on television, the new fiancée of Prince Charles. Alex’s story interweaves with Diana’s final day before her fatal accident in the late summer of 1997. In the unsatisfying company of her billionaire boyfriend she careens from one luxurious, alien Paris location to another, tormented by paparazzi. All day she tries to reach a friend in London, hoping to hear news that will bring a new direction to her life. “Dancing with Diana is a beautifully wrought story that takes us deep into two hard-to-imagine worlds. Alex, a bright young man with cerebral palsy, has his destiny intertwined, in double-helix fashion, with Princess Diana. The latter we meet in her last few hours, and Alex we accompany from childhood through manhood. His ungainly yet triumphant progress towards self-acceptance and independence has an extraordinary echo in Diana’s own brave, doomed search for an authentic life. This is a very fine book that side-steps clichés about celebrity to create a new awareness of Diana, and also gives us a startling sense of life lived strongly and meaningfully with cerebral palsy.” — Dan Yashinsky, author of Tales for An Unknown City and The Storyteller at Fault

"The Sphinx, the Pyramids, the stone temples are, all of them, ultimately, as flimsy as London Bridge; our cities but tents set up in the cosmos. We pass. But what the bee knows, the wisdom that sustains our passing life—however much we deny or ignore it—that for ever remains." —P. L. Travers

“Irresistible. A major force in the renaissance of storytelling in America.” —New York Times “The Robe of Love takes us straight to the heart singing, glorious reminding us in story after story that no matter who we are—unschooled or learned, young or old – we must make the journey, no matter how difficult. And if we do so faithfully, the deepest love of life waits for us with open arms.” —China Galland, author of Longing for Darkness: Tara and the Black Madonna Acclaimed story teller Laura Simms gives us a rich tapestry of tales that unveil the secrets of love in all of its forms. Passionate, riveting, often humorous, these stories of emotional, physical, and spiritual love come from a variety of traditions, including Celtic, Inuit, Persian, Hindu, Jewish, and African. As meaningful today as when they were first told her evocative, retellings of these tales of the mysteries of the heart lead us to many faces and profound requirements of love. “A varied and subtle collection of stories, both wise and intensely engaging, on the profound instructions of love.” —Goia Timpanelli, author of Sometimes the Soul and Tales from the Rood of the World “One can never know what love will look like or what form it will take. Each of these fourteen stories is a passage to love with its own perils and triumphs, disappointments, and miracles. It is in the power of story to remind us what we have forgotten, what we need to remember to restore our hearts.” —Terry Tempest Williams, author of Refuge, Red, and Leap Laura Simms is an internationally renowned storyteller, author, and recording artist whom Maori elders call “as good as our grandparents.” She is the author of the award-winning children’s book, Rotten Teeth (Houghton Mifflin) and the spoken word recording The Gift of Dreams (Sounds True) which Publishers Weekly called “spellbinding,” among other books and recordings. A contributing editor to Parabola magazine, she is co-chairman of the National Healing Story Alliance, and has served as artist-in-residence at New York City’s Lincoln Center for the Arts.

Chemistry can be a daunting subject for the uninitiated, and all too often, introductory textbooks do little to make students feel at ease with the complex subject matter. Basic Chemistry Concepts and Exercises brings the wisdom of John Kenkel’s more than 35 years of teaching experience to communicate the fundamentals of chemistry in a practical, down-to-earth manner. Using conversational language and logically assembled graphics, the book concisely introduces each topic without overwhelming students with unnecessary detail. Example problems and end-of-chapter questions emphasize repetition of concepts, preparing students to become adept at the basics before they progress to an advanced general chemistry course. Enhanced with visualization techniques such as the first chapter’s mythical microscope, the book clarifies challenging, abstract ideas and stimulates curiosity into what can otherwise be an overwhelming topic. Topics discussed in this reader-friendly text include: Properties and structure of matter Atoms, molecules, and compounds The Periodic Table Atomic weight, formula weights, and moles Gases and solutions Chemical equilibrium Acids, bases, and pH Organic chemicals The appendix contains answers to the homework exercises so students can check their work and receive instant feedback as to whether they have adequately grasped the concepts before moving on to the next section. Designed to help students embrace chemistry not with trepidation, but with confidence, this solid preparatory text forms a firm foundation for more advanced chemistry training.
