    An extended and fearless exploration on the meaning of manhood in contemporary Western culture—at a moment in time in which both Fatherhood and Manhood have become endangered concepts. Pointing out the need for strong male relationships and guidance, this book offers an essential prescription for the psychological health of modern Western societies, which have lost the thread of traditional cultures and their time-honored rites of passage. The extensive letter exchange between father and son demonstrates intimacy and honesty in analyzing and exploring the often tumultuous events of their lives. Trained in two different psychological disciplines, their interaction provides the reader a look at the complexity of growing up in America's fast-changing culture, offering invaluable insights for both children and parents. With an introduction by Donald’s son, Jared Cohen, author of the NY Times bestseller Accidental Presidents.

    If you're looking for a parenting book, this is not it. This is not a treatise on how to be a mother. 
    This is a book about a young girl who moves to a new town every couple of years; a misfit teenager who finds solace in a local music scene; an adrift twenty-something who drops out of college to pursue her dream of making cheesecake on a stick a successful business franchise (ah, the ideals of youth).  Alone in a new city, she summons her inner strength as she holds the hand of a dying stranger.  Davies is a woman who finds humor in difficult pregnancies and post-partum depression (after reading "Pie" you might never eat Thanksgiving dessert the same way).  She is a divorcee who unexpectedly finds second love.  She is a happily married suburban wife who nevertheless makes a mental list of all the men she would have slept with.  And she is a parent who finds herself tested in ways she could never imagine. In stories that cut to the quick, Davies explores passion, loss, illness, pain, and joy, told from her singular, gimlet-eyed, hilarious perspective. 
    Mothers of Sparta is not a blow-by-blow of Davies' life but rather an examination of the exquisite and often painful moments of a life, the moments we look back on and say, That one, that one mattered. Straddling the fence between humor and, well…not humor, Davies has written a book about what it's like to try to carve a place for oneself in the world, no matter how unyielding the rock can be.

    “From the seminal Last House on the Left to Scream 2 . . . Robb’s concoction is entertaining and informative about a recognized cinematic auteur.” —Booklist   Writer, producer, and director Wes Craven has successfully tapped into the horror vein for over forty years, serving up scary, funny, cutting-edge thrillers that have become classics in the genre. His films have been both critical and commercial successes, most notably Nightmare on Elm Street, which spawned a series of sequels and made Craven (and his creation, Freddy Kruger) an international sensation. He then created a second indelible series in the horror movie trope with Scream. In Screams & Nightmares, Brian J. Robb examines Craven’s entire career, from his low-budget beginnings to his most recent box office hits, from the banned thriller The Last House on the Left and the cult classic The Hills Have Eyes to the outrageous Shocker and The People Under the Stairs. Through exclusive interviews with Craven, Robb provides in-depth accounts of the making of each of the films—including the final installments of the Scream series—Craven’s foray into writing novels, and his numerous television projects.  “Dripping with fascinating details . . . this is a treat.” —The Washington Post  “A remarkably addictive and easy-to-read guide to Craven’s work, piling in juicy snippets and lesser-known background . . . a comprehensive picture of Craven and his output.” —Sci-Fi Bulletin  “Definitive . . . info-packed and exceptionally well written . . . there is no writer better qualified to chronicle the life and work of a remarkable talent.” —The Dark Side

    Hunting: You've got to Be kidding! is a wonderful true story about a man with a dream. Written by Kevin A Dettler, it is a humorous and emotional story of his endeavor to achieve what only 120 hunters in the world had accomplished. The book takes you through a chronological order of years as the author hunts all the big game species that call North America home. Readers are captivated as Kevin, in his unique way, relates the emotional, financial, and spiritual aspects required to fulfill the dream. That being one of the 120(now about 140) worldwide hunters to receive the award from Safari Club international for collecting and registering all 29 species, thus "The North American 29 award". You will be entertained as the book's focus dwells, not on the hunting, but on the mental processes associated with hunting trophy big game animals. Best of all are the many humorous "you've got to be kidding" moments! It really is a story of faith in God and perseverance. Enjoyed by non-hunters also, including men and women.
