Summary : Since its initial publication and multiple reprints in hardcover in 2005, Teachers Have It Easy has attracted the attention of teachers nationwide, appearing on the New York Times extended bestseller list, C-SPAN, and NPR's Marketplace, in addition to receiving strong reviews nationwide. Now available for the first time in paperback, this groundbreaking book examines how bad policy makes teachers' lives miserable. Many teachers today must work two or more jobs to survive; they cannot afford to buy homes or raise families. Interweaving teachers' voices from across the country with hard-hitting facts and figures, this book is a clear-eyed view of the harsh realities of public school teaching, without chicken-soup-for-the-soul success stories. With a look at the problems of recruitment and retention, the myths of short workdays and endless summer vacations, the realities of the work week, and shocking examples of how society views America's teachers, Teachers Have It Easy explores the best ways to improve public education and transform our schools.

Summary : Sourena Dreams Big and Strives to Achieve “What's the big deal?” you may ask. “A lot of people dream big and strive to achieve their goals.” But you haven't met Sourena. Three decades ago, Sourena Vasseghi was born with severe cerebral palsy—a handicap that's limited his physical abilities but not his dreams and determination. “Luckily, the dreamer inside me knew there was an alternative to blaming my handicap. But like a needle in a haystack, I had to find it.” That, he believed, would give him everything in life—money, career, wife, kids, and a sense of accomplishment. Yet Sourena's profound physical limitations—including a speech impediment that makes his words difficult to understand—rendered his prospects slim. Despair crept in. Not surprisingly, part of Sourena wanted to stuff his dreams into a closet. Thankfully, his inner wisdom and resolve triumphed. He found that “needle” for himself—and potentially for you, too. Sourena realized that “anytime I use my handicap as an excuse for not achieving my dreams, I lose control. It's as if I'm asking the world to take care of me because I don't want to make the right sacrifices.” Since then, the activity behind this belief has fueled Sourena's success as an author, speaker, consultant, and a husband and father. As you strive to manifest your dreams, what sacrifices do you refuse to make? Follow Sourena's example in Big Dreams Take Small Sacrifices to strip away your excuses and embrace what he now knows—that sacrifice is payment for a dream.

Summary : The stunning companion to Kate Atkinson's #1 bestseller Life After Life, "one of the best novels I've read this century" (Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl). Kate Atkinson's dazzling Life After Life explored the possibility of infinite chances, following Ursula Todd as she lived through the turbulent events of the last century again and again. Her new novel tells the story of Ursula Todd's beloved younger brother Teddy--would-be poet, RAF bomber pilot, husband, and father--as he navigates the perils and progress of the 20th century. For all Teddy endures in battle, his greatest challenge is facing the difficulties of living in a future he never expected to have. The stunning companion to Life After Life, A God in Ruins explores the loss of innocence, the fraught transition from the war to peace time, and the pain of being misunderstood, especially as we age. Proving once again that Kate Atkinson is "one of the finest writers working today" (The Chicago Tribune), A God in Ruins is the triumphant return of a modern master.
