By Lee Lowry
When Jenny Longworth offers aid and comfort to David Perry, a long-ago college sweetheart who recently lost his French wife, Sandrine, to cancer, their old passion is revived, creating a gauntlet of social and moral conflicts. Against cautionary counsel, Jenny disrupts her life in Boston and moves to Europe to be at David’s side as he attempts to put his world back together. While some of David’s friends welcome Jenny, others view her with hostility. Struggling with their own grief, David’s children, Marc and Delphine, react to Jenny’s presence with confusion and ambivalence, leaving David and Jenny in a quandary as to the future of their relationship. A compelling story of loss, loyalty, and love spanning two continents and four decades, If You Needed Me reminds us that passion is not the sole province of the young and that love is not for the faint of heart. Author Lee Lowry weaves a tale that confronts the challenges of late love and second marriage with honesty and accuracy, and the characters provide a rich, multi-layered examination of the nature of love with all its pain and beauty.

By Luigi Morelli
Legends & Stories for a Compassionate America The American dream has been abused, neglected, and nearly completely discredited. It is now turning into a nightmare: witness the extreme and still-growing social disparity, and the aspirations to world empire that consume precious resources in war efforts around the world. Yet this is the nature of a dream—to hover between potential and reality, advance and retreat. The legends and stories in this book begin with our Native American heritage and continue with historical turning points and biographies of important individuals at the time of the American Revolution and up to modern times. The first part of the book concerns the birth of the nation; the second records periodic efforts to revive the original founding impulses. Through the biographies of important individuals, the role of national holidays and determining events, the book allows the American soul to reveal itself. When these phenomena appear in their fullest light, the American dream appears as a whole that is more than the sum of its parts (the stories and legends); moreover, it is a whole that is universal. The book speaks with relevance and urgency to all who want to renew hope in the future of our nation and of the world. Luigi Morelli is also the author of A Revolution of Hope: Spirituality, Culture and Social Change

By Karie Holton and Elwood Holton
Millions of employees attend some type of training or learning event during their tenure. Unfortunately, only 10 to 30 percent of what they learn will actually be applied in their work, presenting a situation referred to as a learning transfer problem. In Are You Making Money for Your Hive? authors Karie Holton and Elwood Holton illustrate how businesses can make learning really work to get real results. Focusing on learning transfer, this fable is told through the eyes of Buzz and Buster, two honey bees from different hives. Buzz uses learning to produce honey; as a result, he and his hive mates enjoy a prosperous and productive life. Buster, on the other hand, looks around and sees plenty of honey in his hive and ignores the need to learn how to make more. Eventually, his hive runs out of honey, and nobody knows what to do. Buzz teaches Buster how to collect nectar from flowers to make honey so that he can do the hard work necessary to save his hive. Sharing a set of principles and practices to get results by applying learning on the job, this guide communicates how a strong commitment to learning transfer can make a real difference in your business or organization.

Many of our greatest business thought leaders proclaim that the most powerful way to transform a business is to transform its culture. In Shift: Indigenous Principles for Corporate Change, author Glenn Geffcken offers a culturally based process and path to help move companies from stagnation to change, from mediocrity to innovation, and from disconnection to harmony. Geffcken details a set of principles that underlie indigenous societies throughout the world—principles that have kept them in a state of grace and harmony with nature for longer than recorded history can account. Shift draws on the wisdom of indigenous cultures, their teachings, and their implications for significant transformation of core behaviors, beliefs, values, and ethics—which, taken as a whole, represent a paradigm shift of magnitude rarely seen in the business world. Through personal stories and experiences from Glenn Geffcken’s twenty-four years in the corporate world, in parallel with an eighteen-year immersion in North American indigenous culture and religion, Shift traces a path of self-discovery and organizational transformation. Geared toward businesspeople and entrepreneurs focused on culture as a force of positive change, it offers a methodology to help you break free and consider a different course.

By Charles E. Farnsworth
“Whirlwind & Storm introduces us to the colorful and impetuous Lieutenant Colonel Charles Farnsworth, a Connecticut cavalryman in the Union Army. Farnsworth was fiery, ambitious, and bold, sometimes a little too bold for his own good---in combat, in business ventures, and in the river crossing that ended his life tragically early. Drawing from a rich and previously ignored trove of letters and diaries, Farnsworth’s great-grandson and namesake, a military veteran himself, has done a marvelous job of bringing alive this officer in all his flawed glory.” Adam Hochschild, author of To End All Wars: A Story of Loyalty and Rebellion, 1914-1918 and other books. “With excellent research and clear writing, Whirlwind & Storm paints an impartial, intriguing, and entertaining account of the author’s privileged ancestor, who served heroically with the First Connecticut Cavalry battalion in the Civil War. Before, during, and after the war “Charlie” Farnsworth exuded those common human traits that so defined him: driven, disciplined, courageous, opportunistic, and passionate. Whirlwind & Storm adds an illuminating, original, and personal work to the collage of our great American heritage.” Robert B. Angelovich, author of the forthcoming Riding for Uncle Samuel: The History of the First Connecticut Cavalry in the Civil War. An intimate look at a young Norwich, Connecticut cavalry officer---in war, love, and his attempts to strike it rich---and his fierce ambition to make his mark in the Civil War and early Reconstruction. Lieutenant Colonel Charles Farnsworth’s letters and diaries form the cornerstone for this short biography about an adventurer who helped organize the First Connecticut Cavalry. The book covers “Charlie’s” near-fatal shooting while searching for Confederate bushwhackers in Virginia, his protests against incompetent Union leadership, his capture and confinement in Richmond’s notorious Libby Prison, his romantic entanglements, his political connections with President Lincoln that sent him south in early 1865, and his tragic struggle to make his mark in Georgia during the early years of Reconstruction.

This book won't waste your time. It explains the fundamentals leading to investment success while avoiding the all-too-common "dumbed-down" information that just tells readers what they already know. Sophisticated concepts like "marked-to-market" and "the snapback phenomenon" and "Modern Portfolio Theory" are some of the book's themes that can lead to confidence and success as investors. For retirees, the book's purpose is to provide a do-it-yourself course of action allowing for an "end-run" around the financial services industry with the latter's excessive costs --- costs that eat up what could otherwise have been more retirement income. Knowing how to effectively self-manage assets and implement a mix of cost-effective investments is a critical skill for retirees. Understanding and applying some simple basics will deliver the most on-going income while still combating the disasterous effects of inflation.

Some say leaders are individuals who get people to do what they want them to do, while others say leaders are those who are perceived by others as powerful and influential. Still others say that leaders are simply born to lead. Regardless of the definition, however, it is undeniable that leadership plays an important role in society. In Leadership for Adolescents, author Dr. Carolyn M. Anderson offers a seven-step guide to help teenagers understand the role of a leader and to teach them the skills needed for a leadership position. Detailing key characteristics, she discusses the I-in-leader theme—developing a basic understanding of self and of the leadership skills, competencies, and characteristics one already possesses. She also explores • essential verbal and nonverbal communication skills; • decision-making in small groups; • conflict, what it means, and how it can be managed; • the need for integrity and the importance of an ethical approach to living and leading; and • the importance of continuous learning. The process of assuming a leadership role entails learning, experiencing, and continuous growth in skill building. Including discussion exercises to reinforce learning, the book provides a foundation that can help teens navigate their academic career and eventual career path.
