Summary

From the bestselling author of One Child comes the story of three of former special education teacher Torey Hayden’s most extraordinary challenges. 
Nine-year-old Cassandra, kidnapped by her father and found starving, dirty, and picking through garbage cans—is a child prone to long silences and erratic, violent behavior. 
Charming, charismatic four-year-old Drake will speak only in private to his mother—while his tough, unbending grandfather's demands for an immediate cure threatens to cause irreparable harm. 
And though she had never worked with adults, Hayden agrees to help fearful and silent eighty-two-year-old massive stroke victim Gerda—discovering in the process that a treatment's successes could prove nearly as heartbreaking as its limitations.

    For the Thrill of It

    It was a crime that shocked the nation: the brutal murder in Chicago in 1924 of a child by two wealthy college students who killed solely for the thrill of the experience. Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb were intellectuals—too smart, they believed, for the police to catch them. When they were apprehended, state's attorney Robert Crowe was certain that no defense could save the ruthless killers from the gallows. But the families of the confessed murderers hired Clarence Darrow, entrusting the lives of their sons to the most famous lawyer in America in what would be one of the most sensational criminal trials in the history of American justice. 
    Set against the backdrop of the 1920s—a time of prosperity, self-indulgence, and hedonistic excess in a lawless city on the brink of anarchy—For the Thrill of It draws the reader into a world of speakeasies and flappers, of gangsters and gin parties, with a spellbinding narrative of Jazz Age murder and mystery.

    The Atlantis Secret: A Complete...

    THE CATACLYSM OF ALL CATACLYSMS 
    Ancient man witnessed an extraordinary array of cosmic activity, comets and meteors lighting up the skies, fireballs exploding in the atmosphere, and meteorites plunging to the ground. But what effects did such things have on the human psyche? In this remarkable book, Alan F. Alford explains how the sages of old drew an astonishing conclusion: long ago, they decided, a living planet had exploded and seeded the beginning of all life on earth. This 'Cataclysm of all cataclysms' - a forerunner of the modern Big Bang - had been witnessed by no man, and yet it became the cornerstone of the Sumerian and Egyptian civilizations. 
    THE MYTH OF ALL MYTHS 
    In Sumer and Egypt, the Exploded Planet myth was encoded in the tales of gods and peoples coming down from the sky. Millennia later, the ancient Greeks adopted similar ideas. In the myths and cults of the Olympian gods, in the mystery schools, in the cosmogonies of Thales, Anaximander, Heraclitus, Anaxagoras, Empedocles and Philolaos, in the 'soul religion' of Orpheus, Pythagoras, Parmenides, Socrates and Plato, in all of these places, the Exploded Planet cosmogony is to be found. 
    THE SECRET OF ALL SECRETS 
    Plato was initiated into the Exploded Planet secret, and used it as the basis for his story of Atlantis. In a theory that unifies all of Greek religion and explains every single aspect of the Atlantis story (a genuine first) Alan. F. Alford explains that the modern-day quest for Atlantis in the form of an ancient civilization, lost beneath the waves, is completely misguided. To search for the truth of the story - and Plato insisted that it was true - the reader must contemplate eternal mysteries such as the beginning of time, the role of cataclysms in the flux of the Universe, and the spiritual identity and destiny of man. This is 'The Atlantis Secret'. 
    YOU WON'T BELIEVE IT 'TIL YOU READ IT! 
    THE ATLANTIS SECRET is a truly ground-breaking book that offers a revolutionary, but common-sense solution to some of the greatest mysteries of our age. It will be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in the religion, myths, and mysticism of the Greeks, and is essential reading for those who seek true understanding of the mystery of Atlantis.

    How to Talk About Books You...

    In this delightfully witty, provocative book, literature professor and psychoanalyst Pierre Bayard argues that not having read a book need not be an impediment to having an interesting conversation about it. (In fact, he says, in certain situations reading the book is the worst thing you could do.) Using examples from such writers as Graham Greene, Oscar Wilde, Montaigne, and Umberto Eco, he describes the varieties of "non-reading"-from books that you've never heard of to books that you've read and forgotten-and offers advice on how to turn a sticky social situation into an occasion for creative brilliance. Practical, funny, and thought-provoking, How to Talk About Books You Haven't Read-which became a favorite of readers everywhere in the hardcover edition-is in the end a love letter to books, offering a whole new perspective on how we read and absorb them.

    What do we mean by 'culture'? This word, purloined by journalists to denote every kind of collective habit, lies at the centre of contemporary debates about the past and future of society.�  In this thought-provoking book, Roger Scruton argues for the religious origin of culture in all its forms, and mounts a defence of the 'high culture' of our civilization against its radical and 'deconstructionist' critics.�  He offers a theory of pop culture, a panegyric to Baudelaire, a few reasons why Wagner is just as great as his critics fear him to be, and a raspberry to Cool Britannia.�  A must for all people who are fed up to their tightly clenched front teeth with Derrida, Foucault, Oasis and Richard Rogers.
