One woman’s brave journey to take control of her life, health, and future. After a routine pap smear in 2009, Angela Schmidt Fishbaugh discovered that she had tested positive for BRCA1, a genetic trait that predisposed her to breast and ovarian cancer. After her initial shock—and subsequent to consulting with medical professionals, friends, and family—the proactive mother and teacher embarked on a mission to nip the issue at the bud. Angela’s story is one of personal fortitude. During her journey, she contended with a lack of understanding from those around her, as well as the impending loss of her most feminine qualities. However, as is made abundantly clear in Angela’s Decision, she persevered and came out a stronger woman, immensely proud of the decisions she made. The roots of her immense personal strength become evident as Angela offers flashbacks to her past. She shows us the great difficulties she faced while caring for her ailing father and, later, her ailing mother. Written with unbridled candor and lively prose, Angela’s Decision follows Angela’s yearlong journey through a myriad of clinics, hospitals, and numerous operations. It is a story of struggle and trial, highlighting the challenges both she and her family faced in her crusade against her genetic condition, and the great courage she showed in ensuring the mistakes of her parents did not become her own.

Discover this journey of how a short story set in a fictional small town in West Virginia became a screenplay set in Oklahoma, and that script became an award-winning film set and filmed in Australia. All stories portray how a young woman, Angela Jacobs, and her boyfriend make life altering decisions in their small town, along with their friends. Includes the original short story, Billy's Return, and the screenplay adaptation, Angela's Decision, along with excerpts of the adapted shooting script and the adapted TV pilot script. This book allows film students and writers of all levels- from university film programs to writing workshops to self-directed study- to follow the adaptation process from story to screen in one sitting. Gena Taylor Ellis wrote the short story and the adapted screenplay as her graduate thesis at the University of Oklahoma and has since taught screenwriting and adaptation. Not just for film students, the film-watching public will find the memoir-ish read interesting as the author offers an inside look from the writer's prospective- from her humorous beginnings of a wannabe writer as a pageant contestant at the West Virginia Strawberry Festival to a more poignant look at deployment and army life and its effect on her writing. Photos from the film are included. This book also contains two bonus stories. Christmas Tradition, also available as a single eStory, is an adaptation from war letters sent home during the Korean War by the author's uncle. The other bonus is a postmodern-esque story, based on the author's experiences, on the war in Iraq- An Ethnography of Those Left Behind, circa 2004- and never before published. The film, Angela's Decision, is available on Amazon and serves as a companion piece to fully study this adaptation journey. Mat King directed and produced the film, later directing TV shows Wentworth, Doctor Who, Law and Order: UK, and Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, among others. Kate Croser also produced and Aaron Gully filmed it, garnering a top Australian cinematography award. Lead actors Rhiannon Owen (The Strip, McLeod's Daughters) and Xavier Samuel (Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Adore, Love & Friendship), and the supporting actors, give outstanding performances of young people making life decisions. The film garnered many U.S. film festival awards. Read the book first or watch the film first; the study of this adaptation is up to you. View browndotproductions.com for more information. Gena is an award-winning writer and producer. She's also been on screen in TV shows and films, such as Nashville, Chicago Fire, and Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

Who makes the important decisions in your organization? Strategy, product development, budgeting, compensation—such key decisions typically are made by company leaders. That’s what bosses are for, right? But maybe the boss isn’t the best person to make the call. That’s the conclusion Dennis Bakke came to, and he used it to build AES into a Fortune 200 global power company with 27,000 people in 27 countries. He used it again to create Imagine Schools, the largest non-profit charter-school network in the U.S. As a student at Harvard Business School, Bakke made hundreds of decisions using the case-study method. He realized two things: decision-making is the best way to develop people; and that shouldn't stop at business school. So Bakke spread decision-making throughout his organizations, fully engaging people at all levels. Today, Bakke has given thousands of people the freedom and responsibility to make decisions that matter. In The Decision Maker, a leadership fable loosely based on Bakke's experience, the New York Times bestselling author shows us how giving decisions to the people closest to the action can transform any organization. The idea is simple. The results are powerful. When leaders put real control into the hands of their people, they tap incalculable potential. The Decision Maker, destined to be a business classic, holds the key to unlocking the potential of every person in your organization.

On August 7, 1970, a revolt by Black prisoners in a Marin County courthouse stunned the nation. In its aftermath, Angela Davis, an African American activist-scholar who had campaigned vigorously for prisoners' rights, was placed on the FBI's "ten most wanted list." Captured in New York City two months later, she was charged with murder, kidnapping, and conspiracy. Her trial, chronicled in this "compelling tale" (Publishers Weekly), brought strong public indictment. The Morning Breaks is a riveting firsthand account of Davis's ordeal and her ultimate triumph, written by an activist in the student, civil rights, and antiwar movements who was intimately involved in the struggle for her release. First published in 1975, and praised by The Nation for its "graphic narrative of [Davis's] legal and public fight," The Morning Breaks remains relevant today as the nation contends with the political fallout of the Sixties and the grim consequences of institutional racism. For this edition, Bettina Aptheker has provided an introduction that revisits crucial events of the late 1960s and early 1970s and puts Davis's case into the context of that time and our own—from the killings at Kent State and Jackson State to the politics of the prison system today. This book gives a first-hand account of the worldwide movement for Angela Davis's freedom and of her trial. It offers a unique historical perspective on the case and its continuing significance in the contemporary political landscape.
