The new history of the book has constituted a vibrant academic field in recent years, and theories of print culture have moved to the center of much scholarly discourse. One might think typography would be a basic element in the construction of these theories, yet if only we would pay careful attention to detail, Joseph A. Dane argues, we would find something else entirely: that a careful consideration of typography serves not as a material support to prevailing theories of print but, rather, as a recalcitrant counter-voice to them. In Out of Sorts Dane continues his examination of the ways in which the grand narratives of book history mask what we might actually learn by looking at books themselves. He considers the differences between internal and external evidence for the nature of the type used by Gutenberg and the curious disconnection between the two, and he explores how descriptions of typesetting devices from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries have been projected back onto the fifteenth to make the earlier period not more accessible but less. In subsequent chapters, he considers topics that include the modern mythologies of so-called gothic typefaces, the presence of nontypographical elements in typographical form, and the assumptions that underlie the electronic editions of a medieval poem or the visual representation of typographical history in nineteenth-century studies of the subject. Is Dane one of the most original or most traditional of historians of print? In Out of Sorts he demonstrates that it may well be possible to be both things at once.

From the popular blogger and provocative author of Jesus Feminist comes a riveting new study of Christianity that helps you wrestle with—and sort out—your faith. In Out of Sorts, Sarah Bessey—award-winning blogger and author of Jesus Feminist, which was hailed as “lucid, compelling, and beautifully written” (Frank Viola, author of God’s Favorite Place on Earth)—helps us grapple with core Christian issues using a mixture of beautiful storytelling and biblical teaching, a style well described as “narrative theology.” As she candidly shares her wrestlings with core issues—such as who Jesus is, what place the Church has in our lives, how to disagree yet remain within a community, and how to love the Bible for what it is rather than what we want it to be—she teaches us how to walk courageously through our own tough questions. In the process of gently helping us sort things out, Bessey teaches us how to be as comfortable with uncertainty as we are with solid answers. And as we learn to hold questions in one hand and answers in the other, we discover new depths of faith that will remain secure even through the storms of life.

Eric, the school bully, is causing trouble for Alex's best friend Charlie. He's been stealing his crisps and flushing his head down the loo. Alex isn't sure that Zeus, the Greek god, is the best person to ask for help but before he can stop him, Charlie has built a temple (from a piece of crumpled paper) to summon Zeus. The problem is, the hot-headed god has now taken over the boys' loos and wants to smite Eric with a thunderbolt. But that's against the school rules, so how exactly will Zeus teach the bully a lesson? Don't worry...Zeus will sort it out! Another hilarious story from the author of ZEUS ON THE LOOSE and ZEUS TO THE RESCUE.

A Carousel of Sorts is a dizzying leap into the shallow end of the pool of life. The story embraces the enormity of the world and the underlying idiosyncrasies that connect us all in the end. And perhaps along the way, on the wings of the fabled Carik birds from the tale, some of those answers will appear somewhere amidst the infinite spectrum between Bob Dylan’s song lyrics and the ingredients to Cocoa Puffs cereal. Sawyer Redwine, happens upon his own chance at redemption by stumbling into the life of Ashton James during a robbery. They hightail their lives across country in order to create a fresh start careening into Blaiku “Willy” Williams, the final piece in this triangle of fate. From the festive weirdness of a religious carnival located in Iowa to the eccentric values of a cosmetics mogul in Minneapolis, the triumvirate’s journey unfolds under a tabloid, fashion reporter’s eyes. Interwoven in the trio’s new America are an angel who appears to be Ted Nugent, a Mafia hitman trying to become a rodeo clown, an elderly woman who speaks only through Hallmark cards, and an obsessive narrator with a bloated ego and a magically spiked six-pack of beer.

Take a management journey to the heart of the restructuring of SN Brussels Airlines, sharing the dos and don’ts of Jean-Frédéric Mognetti’s three years of hands-on experience as restructuring catalyst to the company. In 2002 SN rose out of the ashes of Belgian airline SABENA, witnessing a remarkable turnaround and returning to continuing profits as early as the second year of operations, even going on to acquire Virgin Express in 2005. This was achieved with a modest equity investment of €150 million, 12 times less than the cash that Swiss International Airlines, SN’s former sister company, burned through in the same conditions. As well as describing the actions of both the architects and the doers of this startling achievement, Mognetti broadens the management scope of each step of his corporate transformation proposal with the help of a panel of seven CEOs and chairmen. Together, as if in a virtual board meeting, they outline which management lessons to bear in mind to remain on a healthy growth track and avoid a turnaround being no more than a remission. The virtual board members are : Richard Lapthorne – Chairman of Cable and Wireless plc Sébastien Bazin – CEO Colony Capital Europe José Zurstrassen – Founder & CEO Skynet and Keytrade Bank Pierre Henry – CEO Sodexho Pass International Arthur Lok Jack – Chairman Guardian Insurance Holdings Ltd and Neal & Massy Holdings Ltd Magnus Welander – CEO Envirotainer Bernard Charles – CEO Dassault Systèmes “This book is fascinating and valuable because it deals with an issue few others touch on, namely how to resurrect a company which has collapsed. This is a must read book for anyone interested in company restructuring whether in the airline or other industries.” Professor Rigas Doganis, former Chairman/CEO of Olympic Airways and author of “The Airline Business” “Corporate restructuring is not normally a challenge that managers or employees have to meet. In Out of the Ashes, Jean-Frédéric Mognetti gives us a broad approach and tools to handle such a stressful event, based on his unique blend of academic insight and consulting expertise. Mognetti has skilfully brought into play the experience of seven CEOs and Chairmen who talk about their experience of restructuring, so the book contains a truly grounded set of insights.” Richard Gillingwater, Dean, Cass Business School, City of London Former MBA Director at the Paris EAP-ESCP Business School and Professor at HEC, Jean-Frédéric Mognetti is a well-respected academic and consultant who has helped organisations across the world to achieve sustainable turnarounds and to grow organically. Mognetti is in high demand for his hands-on strategic expertise and his no-nonsense advice. An active consultant to CEOs and boards, he has blue-chip clients such as Sodexho, DHL, Xerox and Orange as well as fast growing companies. He is the author of the book Organic Growth, published by Wiley in 2002.
