Poetry Comes In Many Forms... Music....Latin...


'Beginning Latin Poetry' by Gavin Betts & Daniel Franklin. The plentiful notes are quite helpful and aid the reader in terms of vocabulary, syntax, and understanding the content. There is also a glossary at the end of the book containing presumably all the words that occur in the text. The selections on the whole look like they'll will make worthwhile reading from the point of view of content. There are some "essays" explaining Roman books, how editing Latin texts is done, and other topics of likely interest to readers, though some of the comments are a bit quaint. Overall though, the book is highly recommended!

'2007-2008 Annual Supplement to The Piano Book' by Larry Fine. This book is meant to be a supplement to Larry Fine's other book, "The Piano Book." It contains up-to-date information about expected price ranges for all models and all sizes of all brands of pianos (both grands and uprights). It is very, very helpful and can help you negotiate a price with a pushy salesperson. I would recommend that you purchase this eBook along with the most recent edition for the most complete information, but this supplement alone could still be helpful. Check below for the Coupon Code so you can receive a Discount on either of these two eBook Titles.

Beginning Latin Poetry Reader eBook edition by Betts, Gavin, Franklin, Daniel
As a learner of Latin, you want to experience the Roman world by reading its writers in their original language. But you may be unsure where to begin in the classical canon or you may worry that your Latin skills are insufficient to tackle authentic texts.

Study Where To Study.... uh?


'Students' Guide to Colleges:'by Jordan Goldman, Colleen Buyers. I think it's really indicative of what makes this book great. There's just tons of new ideas in it, things you won't find in any other guide, and you can really tell the makers put a lot of time and thought into figure out how to make this whole college search process easier. It is just as (if not more) informative as the other guides - but then it's also fun to read, and tells you what the other guides don't, like "What would a prospective student not see on a campus tour", and "what wouldn't an admissions officer tell a prospective college student." I can't recommend this book enough!! I have a ton of friends and relatives who I have recommended this book to and they thank me all the time! That's my kind of eBook.

'MCAT Physics' by Garrett Biehle. The MCAT Physics Book is a wonderful tool in helping prospective medical students achieve high scores on the Physical Sciences section of the MCAT. The thoroughness of the topics covered and the quality of the questions make this book very valuable. Buy this book early and give yourself time to work through it -- you will end up feeling very comfortable in the physical sciences test. I wish the author would write a similar book for every other MCAT subject, but I guess we can't get everything that we want!

Educate Your Language, And You're Hacking Skills


'The Bilingual Edge' by Kendall King. I found this eBook an excellent discussion about why, when and how to teach your child a second language. The authors, who are both academicians and mothers of young children, guide the reader through a very complete and empirically-based discussion, but it feels like they are sitting in your living room and chatting over coffee. The tone of this book is very friendly and the authors really make the reader feel like he/she could pull off the feat of giving a young child the gift of bilingualism! Where was this book when my kids were mere babes?
'CEH: Official Certified Ethical Hacker Review Guide: Exam 312-50' by Kimberly Graves. This book is a perfect review for people who are knowledgeable on the subject of ethical hacking, desire certification, and want that last minute review and prep guide before going in for the exam. It is cost effective and to the point! Many guides already exist to teach the subject of ethical hacking. This official guide sums up exactly (and only) the CEH exam objectives as presented by EC-Council and provides practice tests. Studiers can rapidly recognize areas they need more focus on before testing. Use the Coupon Code below to receive a discount on these two eBook Titles!

Bilingual Edge, The eBook edition by King, Kendall
It's no secret that parents want their children to have the lifelong cultural and intellectual advantages that come from being bilingual. Parents spend millions of dollars every year on classes, computer programs, and toys, all of which promise to help children learn a second language. But many of their best efforts (and investments) end in disappointment.

"There is grandeur in this view of life....". Charles Darwin


Alec Klein's book takes a local and personal look at one of the nation's leading public schools for the gifted and talented. Observations witnessed at Stuyvesant to the nation at large, Klein chooses, instead, to focus on a few of the people who make this school exceptional. This book is an effortless read that offers personal and caring insight into the passions of learning and teaching. A Class Apart is a quintessentially American story! Books of baseball wisdom are not unique - but this book is one-of-a-kind. The On Deck Circle of Life is a great read, one that I think is "So Cool." Dr. Rotbart's experience as a pediatrician and as a coach is evident on every page - he writes in an easy to understand, gentle style that kids and their parents will love. Be sure to check below to receive your coupon code for a discount on these two eBooks.

A Class Apart eBook edition by Klein, Alec
Enter Stuyvesant High, one of the most extraordinary schools in America, a place where the brainiacs prevail and jocks are embarrassed to admit they play on the woeful football team. Academic competition is so intense that students say they can have only two of these three things: good grades, a social life, or sleep. About one in four Stuyvesant students gains admission to the Ivy League. And the school's alumni include several Nobel laureates, Academy Award winners, and luminaries in the arts, business, and public service. A Class Apart follows the lives of Stuyvesant's remarkable students, such as Romeo, the football team captain who teaches himself calculus and strives to make it into Harvard; Jane, a world-weary poet at seventeen, battling the demon of drug addiction; Milo, a ten-year-old prodigy trying to fit in among high-school students who are literally twice his size; Mariya, a first-generation American beginning to resist parental pressure for ever-higher grades so that she can enjoy her sophomore year. And then there is the faculty, such as math chairman Mr. Jaye, who is determined not to let bureaucratic red tape stop him from helping his teachers. He even finds a job for a depressed math genius who lacks a college degree but possesses the gift of teaching. This is the story of the American dream, a New York City school that inspires immigrants to come to these shores so that their children can attend Stuyvesant in the first step to a better life. It's also the controversial story of elitism in education. Stuyvesant is a public school, but children must pass a rigorous entrance exam to get in. Only about 3 percent do so, which, Stuyvesant students and faculty point out, makes admission to their high school tougher than to Harvard. On the eve of the hundredth anniversary of Stuyvesant's first graduating class, reporter Alec Klein, an alumnus, was given unfettered access to the school and the students and faculty who inhabit it. What emerges is a book filled with stunning, raw, and heartrending personalities, whose stories are hilarious, sad, and powerfully moving.

The On Deck Circle of Life eBook edition by Rotbart, M.D., Harley A
Everything a child needs to know about life can be learned from the dugout steps. Every pitch, hit, and play on the baseball field is its own life lesson. From taking charge under a pop fly, to taking risks on the base paths, to taking heart on the bench, THE ON DECK CIRCLE OF LIFE connects parents and their kids through the analogies, axioms, and allegories that baseball offers for life off the field. The author brings his unique perspective as pediatrician, teacher, kids' baseball coach, and parent to this book of 101 life lessons. As an internationally recognized pediatric specialist and professor, Dr. Harley Rotbart has been named to Best Doctors in America every year since 1996. As a kids' baseball coach, from T-ball through high school, Coach Harley has studied the fine points of a fine game. He has used baseball to guide his players, his patients, and his own kids in everything from homework, humility and helping others, to dating, driving and drugs. Written for kids of all ages to read, and for parents to read over their kids' shoulders, this is a warm and wise playbook for the game of life.

eBooks that feature Teachers and Cats


eBooks are a wonderful invention for students, teachers and parent. This week we celebrate teachers with Jonathan Kozol's compilation of Francesca's letters. They remind us that Teachers have tremendous chanlleges and awesome opportunities. On the lighter side we showcase the perfect "story hour" book. Kids are sure to love all of the books in Erin Hunter's Warrior Series.

Letters to A Young Teacher by Kozol, Jonathon

“In lovingly supportive letters to a young woman on her first job as a first grade teacher, Kozol brings us heartwarming stories of the magic of kids who delight in words like ‘wiggly’ and ‘wobbly,’ ‘bamboozle’ and ‘persnickety’–and who could resist a child called Pineapple? This remarkable book is a testament to teachers who not only respect and advocate for children on a daily basis but who are the necessary guardians of the spirit. Every citizen who cares about the future of our children ought to read this.” –Eric Carle, author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar

“What a wonderful book! Anyone who cares about rebuilding our public education system should read it. I could not put it down!” –Linda Darling-Hammond, Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Education, Stanford University

“This book cuts to the heart of the matter of what it means to be a teacher today. The truth about testing, vouchers and their impact on public schools–it’s all captured here. But here, too, we also experience the exhilaration of putting together lesson plans, the joys of comforting children, and the anxiety of a teacher’s first days in school. Francesca’s journey will leave you hopeful for our nation’s children.” –Reg Weaver, President, National Education Association

“Jonathan Kozol’s advice to the teacher Francesca shows all the qualities that make him the nation’s wisest and boldest and most clear-headed writer on education: his passion for teaching, his respect for students, his refusal to submit to the stifling demands of the educational bureaucrats in and out of government. He tells personal classroom stories with a refreshing honesty, and conveys the excitement and joy of preparing a new generation to remake the world. Teachers, students, parents alike will find this book inspiring.” –Howard Zinn, author of A People’s History of the United States

“With Letters to a Young Teacher, Jonathan Kozol reminds us that teaching remains a wonderful and essential calling. Committed, gifted teachers who recognize the 'inherent value' of every child are needed now more than ever. I hope this inspiring book will spark a new generation of teacher-leaders heeding Kozol's passionate call and example.” –Marian Wright Edelman, President, Children's Defense Fund

Business doesn't have to be Busy-ness - Work Smarter, not Harder

4 hour work week

In the changing world of business and industry, working smarter - not harder is the key. Here are two eBooks to help you examine how you work and if it's working for you.

The Three Tensions: Winning the Struggle to Perform Without Compromise (Adobe Reader) eBook edition
by Dodd, Dominic
A manager argued that he could either increase his business unit's margins or its sales, but not both. His chief executive reminded him of the time when people lived in mud huts and faced the stark choice between light and heat: punch a hole in the side of your hut and you let the daylight in but also the cold, or block up all the openings and you stay warm but sit in darkness. The invention of glass made it possible to overcome the dilemma—to let in the light but not the cold. How then, he asked his manager, will you resolve your dilemma between no sales or no margin improvement? Where is the glass?
From the Introduction

"To win, leaders have to push their companies beyond trade-offs. They must find strong growth at premium returns, not one or the other. They must deliver great results today and build for the future at the same time, not push for earnings that can't be sustained. The Three Tensions is about having both at the same time, more of the time. I recommend it to any manager serious about winning."
—James Kilts, former chairman, CEO, and president, The Gillette Company

"Leadership can't be just about telling people what you expect of them. The Three Tensions sets out a range of helpful tactics leaders can adopt to really engage their people in the search for good performance on many fronts."
—Andrew Cosslett, chief executive, InterContinental Hotels Group PLC

"The Three Tensions speaks to fundamental management issues, perhaps the most fundamental. Managers looking for new ideas on how to improve performance will find it very stimulating. I found my own thinking very much influenced by it."
—John Roberts, professor of economics, strategic management, and international business, Stanford Business School
