Beyond Measure
Vicki Abeles

"Beyond Measure: Rescuing an Overscheduled, Overtested, Underestimated Generation"

From the director of Race to Nowhere, the popular 2010 documentary on our education system that has become a long-running grassroots phenomenon, and a new film, Beyond Measure, comes a groundbreaking book for parents, students, and educators on how to revolutionize learning, prioritize children’s health, and re-envision success for a lifetime.

From kindergarteners to high-schoolers, millions of American students are being pressured to perform in ways that make them less intellectually flexible, creative, and responsive to today’s world. In Race to Nowhere, Vicki Abeles identified a widespread problem in our nation’s schools: as students race against each other to have constantly higher grades, better test scores, and more AP courses than their classmates, they are irreparably damaging their mental and physical health.

Now Abeles taps into this same grassroots community across the nation to find the solutions in Beyond Measure, which publishes simultaneously with the release of her new documentary. Pulling from powerful anecdotes and convincing new research, Abeles presents inspirational, quantifiable success stories and shows how anyone—students, parents, and educators—can effect change. Teachers who cut students’ workload see scores rise; kids discover their own motivation once parents relieve the pressure to perform; schools that institute later start times have well-rested students who are able to learn more efficiently; and schools that emphasize depth over test prep find students more attentive, inventive, and ready to thrive.

It’s no secret that our education system is broken, and Beyond Measure inspires parents, educators, and students to take practical steps to fix it—starting today. In so doing, it empowers all of us to redefine learning and success, and to discover the true, untapped potential awaiting our children, not just in college, but in life.

Band of Brothers
Stephen E. Ambrose

Band of Brothers: E Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne from Normandy to Hitler's Eagle's

Stephen E. Ambrose’s iconic New York Times bestseller about the ordinary men who became the World War II’s most extraordinary soldiers: Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, US Army.

They came together, citizen soldiers, in the summer of 1942, drawn to Airborne by the $50 monthly bonus and a desire to be better than the other guy. And at its peak—in Holland and the Ardennes—Easy Company was as good a rifle company as any in the world.

From the rigorous training in Georgia in 1942 to the disbanding in 1945, Stephen E. Ambrose tells the story of this remarkable company. In combat, the reward for a job well done is the next tough assignment, and as they advanced through Europe, the men of Easy kept getting the tough assignments.

They parachuted into France early D-Day morning and knocked out a battery of four 105 mm cannon looking down Utah Beach; they parachuted into Holland during the Arnhem campaign; they were the Battered Bastards of the Bastion of Bastogne, brought in to hold the line, although surrounded, in the Battle of the Bulge; and then they spearheaded the counteroffensive. Finally, they captured Hitler's Bavarian outpost, his Eagle's Nest at Berchtesgaden.

They were rough-and-ready guys, battered by the Depression, mistrustful and suspicious. They drank too much French wine, looted too many German cameras and watches, and fought too often with other GIs. But in training and combat they learned selflessness and found the closest brotherhood they ever knew. They discovered that in war, men who loved life would give their lives for them.

This is the story of the men who fought, of the martinet they hated who trained them well, and of the captain they loved who led them. E Company was a company of men who went hungry, froze, and died for each other, a company that took 150 percent casualties, a company where the Purple Heart was not a medal—it was a badge of office.

The Wizards of Magog
The Golden Tome 3
N. A. Preece

The third book in the series takes Jon and his friends on an unexpected and deadly journey. Forces beyond their control have combined to bring about the downfall of the Seers and all they stand for. Ebon has returned as if from the dead, only this time he has powerful allies, the Wizards of Magog; age-old enemies of the Seers.

Many leagues from their destination, Jon, Hamill and Auger Wind-rider have been thrown into a fight for survival, not only for their own lives but also those of the Seers, who keep the earth-power in balance between their world and that of the Wizards.

Manipulating the unsuspecting Ebon; the Wizards are determined to force their way back into the world of the Seers, from whence they were banished millennia ago.

Old and valued friends have sought Jon out and together they endeavour to combat the ever present influence of the malevolent seer. Sorrow at the loss of one of their little band weighs heavily on their minds as Ebon reaches out across the void that separates them, by means of the ‘Rod of Dread’. Creating a dark angel from Amethyst’s spent magic; Ebon seeks to rule over both worlds. Only Urim, the elusive and mysterious Seer, aided by the gallant group of friends, can stop him before the Wizards break through and wreak their revenge on the Seers.

A battle of wills plays out across the land as opposing forces face each other for control of the earth-born energy that gives the Seers their power.

Will Ebon at last be brought to account? Will Jon finally obtain that which he has sought after, to become a Seer? Who will prevail, the Seers or the Wizards?

In this chapter of history from the Chronicles of the Sight, we discover the truth behind the mystery that is the Seer, Urim and why he has used Jon as a pawn in his games of life and death.

Is he friend or foe...Time Will Tell.

Research shows that people cannot reach their full potential unless they are in healthy connection with others. Dr. Amy Banks teaches us how to rewire our brains for healthier relationships and happier, more fulfilling lives.

In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Banks give us a road map for developing the four distinct neural pathways in the brain that underlie the four most important ingredients for close relationships: calmness, acceptance, emotional resonance, and energy. Four Ways to Click gives you the tools you need to strengthen the parts of your brain that encourage connection and to heal the neural damage that disconnection can cause.

Hell's Corner
David Baldacci

John Carr, aka Oliver Stone-once the most skilled assassin his country ever had-stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he's fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes.

Then Stone's mission changes drastically before it even begins. It's the night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister. As he watches the prime minister's motorcade leave the White House that evening, a bomb is detonated in Lafayette Park, an apparent terrorist attack against both leaders. It's in the chaotic aftermath that Stone takes on a new, more urgent assignment: find those responsible for the bombing.

British MI-6 agent Mary Chapman becomes Stone's partner in the search for the unknown attackers. But their opponents are elusive, capable, and increasingly lethal; worst of all, it seems that the park bombing may just have been the opening salvo in their plan. With nowhere else to turn, Stone enlists the help of the only people he knows he can trust: the Camel Club. Yet that may be a big mistake.

In the shadowy worlds of politics and intelligence, there is no one you can really trust. Nothing is really what it seems to be. And Hell's Corner truly lives up to its name. This may be Oliver Stone's and the Camel Club's last stand.

The Barber's Song
Douglas Bassett

The Barber’s Song is the story of a family plunged into the refiner’s fire—battling, growing, and sharing the lessons of their difficult journey together. Filled with faith and hope, this moving narrative gives readers an eternal perspective on their earthly sojourn. “People often speak of life and death as if these two concepts were mutually exclusive,” writes best-selling author K. Douglas Bassett. “This book is an attempt to bring together life and death—the latter being an extension of the former. More than just being connected, I believe they flow into each other.”

Written for those who need answers or edification regarding their own mortality or the mortality of someone they love, The Barber’s Song is an affirmation of the reality of eternal life and the power of the Atonement, which paves way for the ultimate family reunion. Doug Bassett has crafted a message that sinks deep into the heart of those who are willing to risk loving another person completely.

"The Barber’s Song can help readers get and keep their priorities straight." —Jack R. Christianson, director, Orem Institute of Religion

The Lincoln Hypothesis
Timothy Ballard

Abraham Lincoln became the sixteenth US president during a very dark time in America's history. Author Timothy Ballard explores the crucial role that President Lincoln played to bring this nation closer to heaven. Readers will see Lincoln as a man inspired of God who invoked a covenant relationship between America and its maker—not unlike the national covenants invoked by righteous leaders in the Book of Mormon. In addition, The Lincoln Hypothesis reveals documented evidence that Abraham Lincoln did, in fact, check out the Book of Mormon as he struggled with making some of the most critical decisions of his presidency. Did he read it? Did it influence him? Was the Book of Mormon a key factor in Lincoln's success and the healing of a nation?

The author states, "As you read, you will, like a prosecutor reviewing a case, or like a jury determining a verdict, identify valuable pieces of evidence that can be fully substantiated. You will also identify pieces of evidence that cannot. I ask you to consider all the evidence and weight it accordingly. Through this study, many questions regarding the interplay between the restored gospel and the Civil War will be answered. New questions may emerge that will not be so easily answered. Either way, in the end you will find yourself on a most exhilarating investigative journey."

The Overton Window
Glenn Beck

"From the "New York Times " #1 bestselling author of "The Christmas Sweater ", "An Inconvenient Book", "Common Sense", and "Arguing with Idiots " comes a heart-stopping new thriller about the consequences America will soon face if we continue to take our freedoms for granted."

Meet Noah Gardner, a twenty-something public relations executive who seems to have all the makings of a killer eHarmony profile. He's smart, handsome, well educated and, like many in the younger generation, far more concerned about the future of his social life than the future of his country.

But that all changes when Noah meets Molly Ross, a mailroom worker at his company who is consumed by the thought that the America we know is about to be lost forever. Noah doesn't believe much in conspiracy theories, or care much about the day-to-day happenings in Washington, but as events begin to unfold exactly the way Molly predicted, Noah becomes increasingly suspicious.

As the two ruling political parties do their best to keep Americans divided and distracted, a historic terrorist attack shakes the country to its core. As those around him panic, Noah realizes that a master plan to transform America is rapidly unfolding. Exposing that plan, and revealing the conspirators behind it, is the only way to save both the country and woman that he loves.

Seamlessly weaving together American history, frightening facts about America's present condition, and a fast-paced plot, Glenn's new thriller will educate, enlighten, and, most importantly, entertain his fans in a whole new way.

Shadowed
Stephanie Black


Gifted musician Catherine Clayton was born into a life of wealth and privilege. Following the death of her father, she makes a bold decision she hopes would make him proud: she’s using the family money to establish a music school and offer free lessons to the underprivileged. A providential suggestion from an old college friend leads Catherine to select Riley, New York, as the perfect location for her new school. Hit hard by the economic downturn, Riley personifies economic hardship: peeling paint, overgrown landscapes, and damaged buildings. But the damage runs much deeper than Catherine first realizes. Two years ago, Riley was rocked by weeks of vandalism followed by the brutal murder of beautiful elementary school secretary Olivia Perry. Everyone in town loved Olivia-but especially the two men with whom she was caught in a love triangle. Though the murder remains unsolved, Catherine receives ominous warnings that one of these men, Adam Becket, is responsible for the girl’s death. Unimpressed by the lack of evidence against him, Catherine is drawn to the shy but endearing Adam. Could he really have been involved in Olivia’s murder? Just as Catherine is settling in and getting to know Adam, a vandal strikes again, and it’s eerily reminiscent of the events surrounding Olivia’s murder. The death threats splashed on the walls prove that the killer is back-and this time, it’s Catherine who wonders if she’s come to the wrong place at the wrong time.

The Caterpillar Way
Craig Bouchard
Hardcover

“The Caterpillar Way: Lessons in Leadership, Growth, and Shareholder Value”
by Craig Bouchard and James Koch

In the early 1980s, Caterpillar, Inc. lost one million dollars per day for three consecutive years. Its continuing existence came into question. Today, "CAT" is the world's most profitable manufacturer of construction and mining equipment and large engines. The now legendary global company made numerous well-calculated, though risky decisions for three consecutive decades--in the process scaling to heights unimaginable to even the finest business enterprises. How did they do it? The Caterpillar Way.

The Caterpillar Way provides essential management lessons in powerful behind-the-scenes stories. You'll learn how the Caterpillar leaders responded quickly to changing markets, allocated capital efficiently throughout the firm, and nourished a cultish team spirit that wins. Innovative leaders make game-changing decisions.

If any company is built to last, it's Caterpillar, Inc. With its trademark yellow trucks, cranes, machinery and engines, this home-grown manufacturer has survived more than its share of ups and downs to become the #1 industry leader of construction equipment in the world. The Caterpillar Way reveals, for the first time, the remarkable inside story, written with full access to the way CAT runs its business, from bottom to top.

Fires of Faith
Brock Brower

Fires of Faith: The Inspiring Story Behind the King James Bible

Fires of Faith: The Inspiring Story Behind the King James Bible Brock Brower, Lee Groberg, and Steven Porter Since its original publication in 1611, the King James Bible has had immeasurable influence on religion, language, culture, art, and literature yet its road to influence and acceptance was paved with darkness. International politics, subversion, lust, and bloodshed set the stage for the heroic heretics, who sought to translate the word of God into the English vernacular.

Fires of Faith crisscrosses a tumultuous Europe at the birth of religious freedom and chronicles characters central to the Reformation, including John Wycliffe, Martin Luther, King Henry VIII , and Bloody Queen Mary I, culminating with the reign of King James I and his commissioned translation of the Bible. At the forefront of the saga is William Tyndale, the British religious scholar who directed the translation and ultimately became a martyr in the fires of faith.

This intriguing three-part documentary series features more than 130 reenactments filmed in eight countries, with great care taken to represent the scenes visually and historically accurate. Commentary from 18 international scholars and religious leaders tells the story of one of the greatest committee efforts in history, resulted in the most influential and enduring book the Western world has ever seen. Part 1- Yearning for the Word Discover the history of the English Reformation and learn about the varying roles Martin Luther, William Tyndale, and King Henry VIII had in its development. Part 2 - Martyrs for a Book Gutenberg's revolutionary printing press aided the Protestant Reformation and sped up the printing of illegal Bibles being smuggled into England. Within a year, many influential heretics were betrayed, imprisoned, and martyred for their beliefs. Part 3 - The King James Bible In 1604, England's King James ordered a new translation of the Bible. After seven years, 54 scholars, and one of the greatest committee efforts in history, those who persevered brought forth the most widely used book ever written.

Elephant's Graveyard
George Brant

Winner of the 2008 Keene Prize for Literature Winner of the 2008 David Mark Cohen National Playwriting Award

• Characters:
• 10 men, 3 females
• Flexible casting (Roles may be played by any race or gender except when specified.)
• Drama

Elephant's Graveyard is the true tale of the tragic collision of a struggling circus and a tiny town in Tennessee, which resulted in the only known lynching of an elephant. Set in September of 1916, the play combines historical fact and legend, exploring the deep-seated American craving for spectacle, violence and revenge.

"The script-based on a true story about a traveling circus that, in 1916, stumbled into gory disaster in a muddy Tennessee town-is, like the best art, microscopically specific with echoes that radiate outward across time. It conjures a world with its own atmosphere and terrible internal logic. It's mesmerizing... symphonic in its emotional variations on a tragic theme. Elephant's Graveyard buzzes with truth about the consequences of misunderstanding, the invisible but enormous gap between artists and their audiences, and the infernal beauty of vaudeville.

Luke Skywalker Can't Read: And Other Geeky Truths

“Ryan Britt is . . . the Virgil you want to guide you through the inferno of geekery.” —Lev Grossman, author of the bestselling Magician's trilogy

Pop Culture and sci-fi guru Ryan Britt has never met a monster, alien, wizard, or superhero that didn’t need further analysis.

Essayist Ryan Britt got a sex education from dirty pictures of dinosaurs, made out with Jar-Jar Binks at midnight, and figured out how to kick depression with a Doctor Who Netflix-binge. Alternating between personal anecdote, hilarious insight, and smart analysis, Luke Skywalker Can’t Read contends that Barbarella is good for you, that monster movies are just romantic comedies with commitment issues, that Dracula and Sherlock Holmes are total hipsters, and, most shockingly, shows how virtually everyone in the Star Wars universe is functionally illiterate.

Romp through time and space, from the circus sideshows of 100 years ago to the Comic Cons of today, from darkest corners of the Galaxy to the comfort of your couch. For anyone who pretended their flashlight was a lightsaber, stood in line for a movie at midnight, or dreamed they were abducted by aliens, Luke Skywalker Can't Read is full of answers to questions you haven't thought to ask, and perfect for readers of Chuck Klosterman, Rob Sheffield, and Ernest Cline.

Anna Jones Buttimore

Gwen Anderton is looking forward to a peaceful Christmas with her husband Edward in their beautiful home in Wales.

Justin Michaelson is delighted to return to Haven, and to bring his quirky and feisty fiancée Myrtle, but his doubts over whether he should marry her are exacerbated when she takes exception to Gwen s LDS faith.

Fading Hollywood star Jacy Grayson is filming a movie in the rugged Welsh mountains. Desperately clinging to her former fame and glory, she almost fails to recognize the love of the man who has been with her through good times and bad.

Also among the visitors are Alan and Judy Fuller, who are trying to escape the seasonal reminders of their greatest sorrow their inability to have children. As always Gwen longs to help, but their heartache is one she shares.

In this atmosphere of uncertainty, sparks fly as the guests are trapped at Haven by the snow. It takes all the magic of Christmas and the faith and love of their remarkable hostess to restore the light and joy the guests long for, even as she comes to realize this Christmas at Haven may be her last.

One Nation
Ben Carson, MD

"One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America's Future"

Dear Reader,

In February 2013 I gave a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast. Standing a few feet from President Obama, I warned my fellow citizens of the dangers facing our country and called for a return to the principles that made America great.

Many Americans heard and responded, but our nation’s decline has continued. Today the danger is greater than ever before, and I have never shared a more urgent message than I do now.

Our growing debt and deteriorating morals have driven us far from the founder’s intent. We’ve made very little progress in basic education. Obamacare threatens our health, liberty, and financial future. Media elitism and political correctness are out of control.

Worst of all, we seem to have lost our ability to discuss important issues calmly and respectfully regardless of party affiliation or other differences. As a doctor rather than a politician, I care about what works, not whether someone has an (R) or a(D) after his or her name. We have to come together to solve our problems.

Knowing that the future of my grandchildren is in jeopardy because of reckless spending, godless government, and mean-spirited attempts to silence critics left me no choice but to write this book. I have endeavored to propose a road out of our decline, appealing to every American s decency and common sense.

If each of us sits back and expects someone else to take action, it will soon be too late. But with your help, I firmly believe that America may once again be one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Sincerely,
Ben Carson

Before My Heart Stops:
A Memoir
Paul Cardall

I was born with half a heart. God made up the difference. After living for more than three decades with congenital heart disease, popular musician Paul Cardall has undergone twentyeight operations and seven open-heart surgeries. But the one surgery he needed most his last chance at seeing his three-yearold daughter, Eden, grow up was a heart transplant. This is the remarkable true story of one man s struggle to survive long enough to get a second chance at life. Paul was a poor candidate for a heart transplant, says Angela Yetman, M.D. It would be technically difficult and possibly fatal . . . but Paul was determined to beat the odds. And beat them he did. Paul hopes this miraculous journey will illustrate two things: (1) Truly, there is a God who is clearly in charge of our lives, and (2) each of us has been put on this earth for a reason. Our job is to find it and live it. Paul says, My soul has been stretched in this journey. I m a witness that these soul-stretching experiences can offer us, if we want them, joy, wisdom, happiness, and a personal relationship with God. Along the way, Paul wrote down his thoughts, feelings, and observations in an online blog called Living for Eden. This book reflects those weekly blog entries insights and wisdom beyond his years. After reading his story, you may come away asking yourself, “Who do I need to love . . . before my heart stops?”

One Question: Life-Changing Answers from Today's Leading Voices

The motivating host of one of the nation's largest leadership conferences offers a collection of inspirational and applicable life lessons through conversations with various high profile people.

Albert Einstein once said, “To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.” What is true of science, I’m convinced, is true in all of life. Great questions are often the keys that unlock possibilities for human advancement. That truth has been proven again and again throughout human history, as great interviewers from Bob Costas to Barbara Walters have captivated audiences and ignited imaginations. In a world where the messages of public figures and politicians are carefully crafted by publicists and media consultants, we often receive only partial pictures and manipulated facts. The right questions uncover truths we might not otherwise know. They pull back the curtain on the wizard and give us a more accurate view of reality. —Excerpt from the Introduction

If you could sit down with the people you most admire and ask just one question, what would you ask?

One Question invites you to peer over the shoulder of a master interviewer with access to today’s best and brightest as he delivers carefully crafted questions and collects answers guaranteed to surprise, challenge, and inspire.

• What is Coach Tony Dungy’s advice for achieving success while maintaining integrity?
• What advice does Malcolm Gladwell give parents about instilling a work ethic in our children?
• How does President Jimmy Carter suggest we continue forward and reinvent ourselves in new seasons?
• What does Robin McGraw have to say to women about reaching their full potential both inside and outside their homes?
