Defining moments refine our potential and give birth to our purpose. These unexpected twists of events, unforeseen challenges, and courageous leaps of faith outline the blueprint of the lives we build. Crossing Farmers Boulevard: A Journey to Oneness in a Polarizing World is a collection of the pivotal moments that shaped the character, tenacity, and empathy of Dr. Ronald J. Peters, Jr. Born during the infancy of hip-hop culture in Queens, New York, an inquisitive young man discovers a world of wonder and limitless possibilities when he crosses Farmers Boulevard, sometimes with almost deadly consequences, but always with valuable lessons learned. As a child, he was challenged by dyslexia, attention deficit disorder, and an environment that perpetuated fight-or-flight reactive behaviors, including drug use, violence, and devaluation. He utilized hip-hop as a form of self-therapy. Tagging and drawing provided him with an escape from the confines of his learning disabilities and the outlet he needed to self-nurture and exercise his God-given creative thoughts. These expressive activities cultivated his understanding of the polarity of his perceived academic weaknesses and the innovative gifts that they could afford. As an adult, he became a university professor and defied end-stage kidney disease. His engaging memoir plays out as the reverse engineering of an improbable life’s journey full of adventure, discovery, and the transformative power of love.

"This is the book that needed to be written in this time of tribulation for American business.... a must-read." -- Norman R. Augustine, Chairman of the Executive Committee, Lockheed Martin Corporation "Aspiring CEOs and leaders of all kinds -- as well as anyone depressed at recent revelations of the dark side of American business behavior -- should read this book." -- Nannerl O. Keohane, President, Duke University "He has accurately described the critical role that character plays in the leadership equation... and in life. This is a superb book." -- General Charles C. Krulak (Ret), 31st Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps Like a moose in the living room, some problems are hard to ignore. Randall Tobias says that whether these problems are in business or in life, it is best to confront them openly and honestly. Put the Moose on the Table sets forth the ethical lessons Tobias first learned as a youth in Remington, Indiana, which continued to guide his upward trajectory through the business world. Among the topics he discusses are leading by example, dealing with wrenching change, the importance of openness versus secrecy, mentoring, and "the vision thing." This is an enlightening and hopeful book about succeeding without selling out, turning change to advantage, and confronting difficult issues, told from the point of view of one who has played a significant role in two of the major corporate transformations of our time.

The last novel Ernest Hemingway saw published, The Old Man and the Sea has proved itself to be one of the enduring works of American fiction. It is the story of an old Cuban fisherman and his supreme ordeal: a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. Using the simple, powerful language of a fable, Hemingway takes the timeless themes of courage in the face of defeat and personal triumph won from loss and transforms them into a magnificent twentieth-century classic.

When it comes to issues of race and color of one’s skin, ignorance and racism persist to this day. It’s necessary to make connections from the past to erase the veil of ignorance. In Chance or Circumstance?, author James R. Mapp offers an account of the history of race relations and the road to desegregation and open accommodations in Chattanooga, Tennessee, from the 1960s to the present. This memoir tells of people, places, and events that occurred during that tumultuous era. Mapp—a lifetime member of the NAACP—has been entrenched in the movement for racial equality and positive change for more than sixty years. Chance or Circumstance? tells what motivated Mapp and others to endure hardships, sacrifice incomes, and even risk their lives to right a wrong that had oppressed African Americans since slavery. It looks at the effect of Howard School (then, the only high school for Negro students in Chattanooga, Tennessee) and the positive effects on the city that Howard alumni and students have had. Written from an historical and personal perspective, Mapp instills racial pride by revealing the hard work involved in the struggle for civil rights. It details a set of events that played out in this mid-size southern city as students, organizations, and ordinary citizens joined the attack on racial segregation in public accommodations and schools.

With almost 4 million copies sold over 50 years after its original publication, generations of readers have now journeyed with Milo to the Lands Beyond in this beloved classic that Philip Pullman says “comes up bright and new every time I read it . . . it will continue to charm and delight for a very long time yet. And teach us some wisdom, too.” Enriched by Jules Feiffer’s splendid illustrations, the wit, wisdom, and wordplay of Norton Juster’s offbeat fantasy are as beguiling as ever. For Milo, everything’s a bore. When a tollbooth mysteriously appears in his room, he drives through only because he’s got nothing better to do. But on the other side, things seem different. Milo visits the Island of Conclusions (you get there by jumping), learns about time from a ticking watchdog named Tock, and even embarks on a quest to rescue Rhyme and Reason. Somewhere along the way, Milo realizes something astonishing. Life is far from dull. In fact, it’s exciting beyond his wildest dreams!
