Two best friends document their post-college lives in a hilarious, relatable, and powerfully honest epistolary memoir. Fast friends since they met at Brown University during their freshman year, Jessica Pan and Rachel Kapelke-Dale vowed to keep in touch after their senior year through in-depth—and brutally honest—weekly e-mails. After graduation, Jess packs up everything she owns and moves to Beijing on a whim, while Rachel heads to New York to work for an art gallery and to figure out her love life. Each spends the next few years tumbling through adulthood and reinventing themselves in various countries, including France, China, and Australia. Through their messages from around the world, they swap tales of teaching classes of military men, running a magazine, and flirting in foreign languages, along with the hard stuff: from harrowing accidents to breakups and breakdowns. Reminiscent of Sloan Crosley’s essays and Lena Dunham’s Girls, Graduates in Wonderland is an intimate, no-holds-barred portrait of two young women as they embark upon adulthood.

When I sat down to write this book, it was not an attempt to create a renowned literary work, nor was it about money or profit. I had become deeply saddened and angered, to the verge of outrage, due to the venal actions of my (elected?) government. This book speaks to the lies, hypocrisy and nefarious activities of this Bush bastard and his "colleagues-in-crime". I have no political affiliation per se. This is not about "Right" or "Left"--in this book I speak to right and wrong! This man (now there's an oxymoron) and his cronies have come to us with God on their lips and blood on their hands. I only have hopes in awakening the sleeping apathetic and complacent.

Anyone who watches the former U.S. Secretary of Labor and The Daily Show and CNBC commentator's videocasts, viewed on his Inequality Media website, has seen Reich's informal lectures on student debt, social security, and gerrymandering, which he accompanies by quickly drawing cartoons to illustrate his major points. Collected here, for the first time, are short essays, edited from his presentations, and Reich's clean-line, confident illustrations, created with a large sketchpad and magic marker. Economics in Wonderland clearly explains the consequences of the disastrous policies of global austerity with humor, insight, passion, and warmth, all of which are on vivid display in words and pictures.

This work of fiction, was inspired by an actual case where the Kentucky Bar Association investigated a prominent lawyer for merely writing a letter to the Kentucky Legislature which was critical of a ruling of the Legislative Ethics Commission. The Ministry is a secret government agency and their actions are not subject to disclosure. The legal rules cited actually exist and provide a warning to those who create such rules of the need for reform, not only to protect lawyers, but to protect the public who consume legal services and expect their lawyer to have the right to fearlessly represent them. This case was only made public when the attorney, John M. Berry Jr. and the ACLU, filed a federal lawsuit. That case is currently on appeal to the 6th. U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Alice is a member of the Ky. Supreme Court. She fights the Ministry of Ethics, an agency of the Courts which investigates and sanctions attorneys for any conduct they find to be offensive. This book was published in April of 2011. In November of 2011 the chief KBA ethics prosecutor was fired. The Bar Association has never given a reason for her discharge.

What would happen if a shy introvert lived like a gregarious extrovert for one year? If she knowingly and willingly put herself in perilous social situations that she’d normally avoid at all costs? Writer Jessica Pan intends to find out. With the help of various extrovert mentors, Jessica sets up a series of personal challenges (talk to strangers, perform stand-up comedy, host a dinner party, travel alone, make friends on the road, and much, much worse) to explore whether living like an extrovert can teach her lessons that might improve the quality of her life. Chronicling the author’s hilarious and painful year of misadventures, this book explores what happens when one introvert fights her natural tendencies, takes the plunge, and tries (and sometimes fails) to be a little bit braver.

The first year or so of a pastor's tenure in a new congregation is precarious; many pastors stay at a new congregation for fewer than five years. This handbook helps coach both experienced and new pastors to enter a new congregation effectively. Drawing from organizational systems leadership material in religious and secular worlds, it offers nearly fifty tips and tools designed to help new pastors analyze their congregation's system and then to lead leaders within the congregation to affect positive change. Using imagery from Alice in Wonderland to clarify various archetypal roles within the church community, Harris provides concrete suggestions for facilitating communication and dealing with difficult behaviors within the congregation. He provides a coaching approach to ministry, in which the pastor reframes issues and asks provocative questions—a powerful strategy to maximize a new pastor’s chances for success. Readers will find tools to help them uncover critical information about their new congregation regarding: congregational norms, particularly regarding the office of pastor, conflict, and holy objects; their history and sense of God's call; the true leaders among the congregation; mutual accountability.

This monograph considers student affairs research, providing an overview of research issues; a practical guide to conducting and teaching about research; and a critique of current research assumptions, methods, and practices. "The Promise of Student Affairs Research" (Karl Beeler and Deborah Ellen Hunter) uses "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" as a metaphorical starting point for describing the campus environment, introduces ways to view research as a practical tool, and argues for research based on student characteristics at the individual campus level. "In Search of the Lost Chord: Applying Research to Planning and Decision Making" (Larry Benedict) lists reasons cited for failing to conduct research in student affairs and shows that research need not be expensive or time consuming. "Of Puzzles and Pieces: Organizing and Directing a Campus-Based Research Agenda" (William Weitzer and Gary Malaney) describes a simple four-step process for planning the design of research projects. "Rethinking Research in Student Affairs" (George Kuh) presses the profession to move forward in its thinking about what constitutes useful knowledge. "The Call to Assessment: What Role for Student Affairs?" (Gary Hanson) provides an overview of assessment issues in higher education and student affairs. "Peering Through the 'Looking Glass' at Preparation Needed for Student Affairs Research" (Deborah Ellen Hunter and Karl Beeler) discusses how student affairs professionals can be motivated and taught the skills for competency in research. "Student Affairs Research on Trial" (Robert Brown) passes judgment on the profession as a producer and user of research. (NB)
