How do the metaphors we use to describe procreation affect our view of the relative worth of each gender? Carol Delaney discloses the powerful meanings condensed in the seemingly innocent images of "seed" and "soil." Drawing on her work in a small Turkish village of Sunni Muslims, she shows us that the images are categorically different, hierarchically ordered, and unequally valued. The ways in which the creation of a child is understood in Turkey furnish a key to understanding a whole range of Turkish attitudes toward sexuality and gender, honor and shame, authority and submission, time and space, inside and outside, open and closed. Moreover, the symbols and meanings by which they represent procreation provide the means for understanding relationships between such seemingly disparate elements as the body, family, house, village, nation, this-world and other-world. Delaney points out that these symbols do not embellish reality; they provide the key to a particular conception of it, a conception that gives coherence to social life. The patterns revealed are not distinctly Turkish; they also comment on some of our own deeply-held assumptions and values about procreation.

Der Autor arrangiert seine Gesichte der "positiven Energie" um die Metapher eines Busses, welcher sinnbildlich für das Leben eines jeden Einzelnen steht und stellt zehn konkrete Handlungsmaxime für ein positiveres und glücklicheres Leben vor. Um zu diesen Empfehlungen zu gelangen, begleiten wir George, der als Teamleiter bei einem Glühbirnenfabrikanten arbeitet. George hat nicht nur auf der Arbeit seinen Weg verloren. Als ehemals gefeierter Günstling seinen Chefs steht er mittlerweile nicht nur unter Dauerstress sondern auch auf der Abschussliste. Das wirkt sich auch auf sein Privatleben aus. Zu wenig Zeit für seine Kinder und zu wenig Zuwendung für seine Frau führen immer wieder zu Spannungen in der einst so harmonischen Beziehung. Seine Existenz ist nicht viel mehr als ein Scherbenhaufen. Bis zu dem Tag, als ihn ein platter Reifen zwingt, den Bus zu nehmen und er auf die Busfahrerin Joy trifft. Was er in diesem Moment noch nicht weiß: Joy und die Passagiere ihres Busses haben es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, gescheiterte Existenzen wie George mittels zehn einfacher Regeln wieder auf den rechten Weg zu führen. Zunächst reagiert George sehr ablehnend, doch schließlich lässt er sich auf die "Behandlung" der ewig lächelnden Busfahrerin ein und kann schon bald erste Erfolge verzeichnen. Letzten Endes rettet die Fahrt im "Energy Bus" nicht nur seinen Job und seine Ehe, sondern macht ihn auch zu einem glücklicheren Menschen.
