E Pluribus One
By Sophia A. Nelson
In her newest book, political pundit and thought leader Sophia Nelson encourages readers to rediscover America's lost political enthusiasm, passion, and civility by introducing the codes of how Americans are called to lead and be engaged as citizens. From Code #1, "Courage , Conviction and Character," to Code, # 10 Commit, E-PLURIBUS ONE offers these codes as a solution to the great political divide. Including a substantive analysis of the American political landscape, Nelson challenges readers to get reconnected and re-engaged; to answer the call of service and of unity; and to demand more of those who seek our votes and work toward a more perfect union. Readers will be energized and motivated to focus on our Oneness in a way that they have not, since our great democratic republic was formed in 1776.
E Street Shuffle
By Clinton Heylin
Bruce Springsteen is one of the most important and controversial rock stars of our times: this is the story of the man - a complex, poetic loner whose albums went on to sell 18 million copies - and the band that gave his inner vision a punch and a swagger. Clinton Heylin has written the most factually accurate, informative book on Springsteen to date. As in Heylin's definitive Bob Dylan title Revolution in the Air, E Street Shuffle will focus on Bruce Springsteen and his work: the songs he's written, the way they were recorded, how they sounded live. Heylin also has unparalleled access to the people around Springsteen: current and former members of the E Street Band; CBS A&R personnel; Springsteen's 'New Dylan' contemporaries, as well as fellow Asbury Park musicians and scenesters, and rock critics. This is the essential book for any fan of the Boss.Praise for Clinton Heylin:"Arguably the world's greatest rock biographer." - The Irish Independent."The only Dylanologist worth reading." - The New York Times.
By Robert Hargrove
Today every business is an e-business, and whether you are selling golf outings over the Internet or manufacturing the carts, there is no escaping the fact that every aspect of organizational design is profoundly affected by the new rules of the electronic economy. What many people and organizations overlook, however, is the degree to which these new rules are requiring a fundamentally different style of leadership. In E-Leader , Robert Hargrove identifies the new mindset and skills that leaders must develop in order to thrive in a world where wealth is built on relationships and experiences, not products or even technology. The old model of leader as "steward," protecting the company's brands and assets, is being replaced by a model of leader as "entrepreneur," searching constantly for new sources of wealth creation establishing creative ventures with suppliers, distributors, and even competitors and discovering new ways to attract, retain, and nurture talent- all at the speed of light. E-Leader captures the energy of the mavericks who are redefining leadership on the electronic frontier and shows managers in all types of organizations how to manage for the future, not for the past or even the present.

By Laura Jackson
The Eagles have enjoyed colossal success spanning three decades. They are a remarkable mesh of lyrical and musical talent, twinned with an explosive blend of personalities. They are a group of individually diverse and vivid characters - something which played a crucial part in propelling them to global success but has also led to bitter personality clashes, paranoia and tension, leaving them at bitter odds with one another, burned out and depressed at the start of the 1980s. The Eagles have one of the most fascinating sex, drugs and rock and roll stories that there is. At their decadent height they enjoyed an insatiable appetite for drugs and groupies, and threw some of the wildest parties in the business. Laura Jackson follows their fascinating story from the early '70s when they established an immediately identifiable sound that was unique to them, through their career and personal highs and lows, to their break up in 1982 and their eventual reform in 1994. The Eagles: Flying High provides a definitive insight into one of the best selling bands in recording history.

Early Detection And Treatment Of Substance Abuse Within Integrated Primary Care
By Nicholas A. Cummings
Substance abuse can result in severe health problems; families suffer; people are victimized on account of substance-related crime; and most tragically, thousands of innocent children die each year in impaired driving accidents. Given its far-reaching impact on the welfare of society, healthcare professionals should make substance abuse a priority. Most patients with substance abuse problems present in primary care settings, oftentimes with other complaints. When professionals, working in primary or integrated care settings, know what to look for and there is adequate infrastructural support with respect to triage, implementing substance programs with an eye on early detection and intervention can dramatically improve health outcomes and create significant financial benefits.

By Jim Marshall, Barry Feinstein, Daniel Kramer
Bob Dylan appeals as much to the generation of today as to his contemporaries. This attractively-priced paperback edition of early Dylan presents rare pictures of Dylan's early years by three leading rock photographers. Barry Feinstein, Daniel Kramer and Jim Marshall were alongside Dylan from the beginning and were given unique and personal access to the artist and his life behind the scenes. The conversational and personal captions by the authors explain each photograph and shed light on Dylan's life during those times - recording, playing pinball, hamming for the camera, spending time with girlfriends, or simply lost in thought. Some of the photographs are well-known classics that now belong in the permanent collection sof the Whitney Museum of American Art and the George Eastman House. Many others, however, appeared in this book for the first time and provide rare visual footbage of the early years of America's most compelling musical artist.
Early One Morning
By Virginia Baily
A grey dawn in 1943: on a street in Rome, two young women, complete strangers to each other, lock eyes for a single moment.One of the women, Chiara Ravello, is about to flee the occupied city for the safety of her grandparents' house in the hills. The other has been herded on to a truck with her husband and their young children, and will shortly be driven off into the darkness. In that endless-seeming moment, before she has time to think about what she is doing, Chiara makes a decision that changes her life for ever.

She is twenty-seven, single, with a sister who needs her constant care, a hazardous journey ahead of her, and now a child in her charge - a child with no papers who refuses to speak and gives every indication that he will bolt at the first opportunity. Three decades later, Chiara lives alone in Rome, a self-contained, self-possessed woman working as a translator and to all appearances quite content with a life which revolves around work, friends, music and the theatre. But always in the background is the shadow of Daniele, the boy from the truck, whose absence haunts her every moment. Gradually we learn of the havoc wrought on Chiara, her family and her friends by the boy she rescued, and how he eventually broke her heart. And when she receives a phone call from a teenage girl named Maria, claiming to be Daniele's daughter, Chiara knows that it is time for her to face up to the past.

Earth Hates Me
By Ruby Karp
Earth Hates Me presents a look inside the mind of the modern teenager--from a modern teenager's perspective. Fifteen-year-old Ruby Karp addresses the issues facing every highschooler, from grades to peer pressure to Snapchat stories, and unpacks their complicated effects on the teen psyche. With dashes of humor throughout, Ruby advises her peers on the importance of feminism ("not just the Spice Girls version"), how to deal with jealousy and friend break-ups, family life, and much more. The book takes an in-depth look at the effect of social media on modern teens and the growing pressures of choosing the right college and career. With Ruby's powerful underlying message "we are more than just a bunch of dumb teenagers obsessed with our phones," Earth Hates Me is the definitive guide to being a teen in the modern age.
By Mark Hertsgaard
From toxic polluted cityscapes of industrial China to poverty-stricken tribes in Sudan, from children's leukaemia wards in ex-soviet nuclear disaster zones to the conference tables of Rio's Earth Summit, Mark Hertsgaard's quest around the globe forms an urgent investigation into the future of the environment. The ecological ravages of capitalist hyperconsumption and communist mismanagement can only worsen as developing nations - desperately trying to bridge the ancient divide between rich and poor - achieve 'progress' at the expense of environmental degradation. Questioning the credibility of sustainable development with leading figures such as Al Gore and Jacques Cousteau, Mark Hertsgaard depicts with an eye for anecdote and human detail the activities of government agencies, business leaders and citizen activists engaged in saving (or destroying) the environment. Whether describing the lethal appeal of the automobile or detailing the impact of Amazonian deforestation on world climate change, his first-hand reportage and storyteller's sense of narrative produce a vital, edifying - and even hopeful - call for action. Time is running out.
