The Nurture Effect

Anthony Biglan

What if there were a way to prevent criminal behavior, mental illness, drug abuse, poverty, and violence? Written by behavioral scientist Tony Biglan, and based on his ongoing research at the Oregon Research Institute, The Nurture Effect offers evidence-based interventions that can prevent many of the psychological and behavioral problems that plague our society.For decades, behavioral scientists have investigated the role our environment plays in shaping who we are, and their research shows that we now have the power within our own hands to reduce violence, improve cognitive development in our children, increase levels of education and income, and even prevent future criminal behaviors. By cultivating a positive environment in all aspects of society-from the home, to the classroom, and beyond-we can ensure that young people arrive at adulthood with the skills, interests, assets, and habits needed to live healthy, happy, and productive lives.The Nurture Effect details over 40 years of research in the behavioral sciences, as well as the author's own research. Biglan illustrates how his findings lay the framework for a model of societal change that has the potential to reverberate through all environments within society.

Motherless Daughters

Hope Edelman
Authors:
Hope Edelman

Ask any woman whose mother has died, and she will tell you that she is irrevocably altered, as deeply changed by her mother's death as she was by her mother's life. Although a mother's mortality is inevitable, no book had discussed the profound, lasting, and far-reaching effects of this loss- until Motherless Daughters , which became an instant classic. Twenty years later, it is still the book that women of all ages look to for comfort and understanding when their mothers die, and the book that they continue to press into each other's hands.Building on interviews with hundreds of mother-loss survivors, the author's personal story of losing her mother, recent research in grief and psychology, and with a new afterword exploring how the legacy of mother loss shifts with the passage of time, Motherless Daughters reveals the shared experiences and core identity issues of motherless women:Why the absence of a nurturing hand shapes a woman's identity throughout her lifespanHow present-day relationships are defined by past lossesHow a woman can resolve past conflicts and move toward acceptance and healingWhat grief really is: not a linear passage, but an ongoing cyclical journey

But when that pits her against her own husband - and when she meets an enigmatic young revolutionary - she's pushed to discover how far she'll bend society's rules to do what's right.

One Tough Mother

Gert Boyle, Kerry Tymchuk, Mark O. Hatfield
Authors:
Gert Boyle, Kerry Tymchuk, Mark O. Hatfield

When a heart attack claimed Gert Boyle's husband in 1970, the forty-six-year-old housewife and mother of three found herself at the helm of Columbia Sportswear, a small outerwear manufacturer in Portland, Oregon, that was struggling financially. With no business experience whatsoever, Boyle was faced with the challenge of running Columbia, which had been founded in 1937 by her father , a Jewish immigrant who had fled Hitler's Germany. Boyle and her son Tim persevered, turning a company that in 1970 had forty employees and less than 800,000 in annual sales into the leading seller of skiwear in the United States, with more than 2000 employees and over a billion in annual sales. Along the way, thanks in part to a creative marketing campaign that billed her as "one tough mother," Boyle established herself as an industry icon, and the first woman ever inducted into the International Sporting Goods Hall of Fame. One Tough Mother presents an honest and often irreverent account of Boyle's journey from a childhood in Nazi Germany to incredible success in America. She offers insights into succeeding in business and in life, and shares many of the advertisements and strategies that have made her so recognizable.

It's a Girl

Andrea J. Buchanan
Authors:
Andrea J. Buchanan

The most popular question any pregnant woman is asked , aside from "When are you due?" , has got to be "Are you having a girl or a boy?" When author Andrea Buchanan was pregnant with her daughter, she was thrilled to be expecting a girl. Some people were happy for her visions of flouncy pink dresses and promises of mother-daughter bonding were the predictable responses. Other people, though, were concerned: "Is your husband OK with that?" "You can try again." "Girls are tough." This mixed message led her to explore the issue herself, with help from her fellow writers and moms, many of whom had had the same experience. As she did in It's a Boy: Women Writers on Raising Sons, Buchanan and her contributors take on what it's really like to raise a child-in this case, a girl-from babyhood to adulthood. It's a Girl, is a wide-ranging, often humorous, and honest collection of essays about the experience of the mother-daughter bond, taking on topics like "princess power" ("Shining, Shimmering, Splendid"), adding a girl to a brood of boys ("Confessions of a Tomboy Mom"), dealing with a daughter's eating disorder ("The Food Rules"), and mothering "hardcore mini-feminists" ("Tough Girls").

Authors:
Andrea J. Buchanan

The most popular question any pregnant woman is asked , aside from "When are you due?" , has got to be "Are you having a girl or a boy?" When author Andrea Buchanan, already a mom to a little girl, was pregnant with her second child, she marveled at the response of friends and total strangers alike: "Boys are wonderful," "Boys are so much better than girls," "Boys love their mothers differently than girls." This constant refrain led her to explore the issue herself, with help from her fellow writers and moms, many of whom had had the same experience.The result is It's A Boy , a wide-ranging, often-humorous, and honest collection of essays about the experience of mothering boys. Taking on topics like aggression, parenting a teenage boy, and wishing for a daughter but getting a son, It's A Boy explores what it's like to mother sons and how that experience may be different, but no less satisfying, than mothering girls.

Authors:
Chris West, Ruth Stanat

For businesses large and small, a global marketplace represents a source of great promise,and peril. While trade barriers have come down, and advances in communication and information technology have made new markets accessible as never before, one false move can spell disaster, especially for small and midsize companies. Nevertheless, with a combination of ambitious vision and careful planning, even the smallest businesses can expand far beyond their home country's borders.In Global Jumpstart, Ruth Stanat and Chris West draw on their many years of experience helping companies of all sizes expand into new markets to offer entrepreneurs a complete, step-by-step guide to launching a global strategy that will minimize risk, make the best use of their skills and resources, and capitalize on opportunities.Applying rigorous field-tested research and information-gathering techniques and citing the most current resources, Stanat and West present a comprehensive and immediately practical program for establishing a global mind-set, undertaking market research, building competitive intelligence, assessing customer needs, and evaluating a wide variety of options for expansion,from, exporting to franchising to strategic alliances and joint ventures.The book also features the "global marketing audit," a self-assessment tool for determining your company's global readiness along many dimensions, including product mix, human resource capabilities, and sales and distributions infrastructure. All of the principles are illustrated through colourful case examples of companies as diverse as Powell Books of Portland, Oregon Zion View Ostrich Ranch of St. George, Utah and Applied Sweepers, Inc., Falkirk, Scotland.In many respects, the question is not whether to go global, but when and how. For small and midsize firms, the process of going global need not be overwhelming, as long as they are armed with commitment and information. Global Jumpstart will be an essential resource for initiating and sustaining that rewarding process.
