In an era of cynicism and divisiveness, the tale of this young angel who refused to give up hope combined with the simple act of a young father doing what he ought to do—standing by his ailing daughter through thick and thin—set the social-media world into a whirlwind of positivity. Their inspirational story made the sports world (and the celebrity world alongside it) sit up and smile at the ESPYs. It grabbed the attention of audiences far outside of sports, too, on the Today Show and Good Morning America, and in the pages of People magazine, US Weekly, and more. Everyone seemed to want to know one thing: How did this dad and his little girl find a way to smile through the pain, and to keep fighting even when everything seemed to be going against them? The news media fell in love with the message and told the story the best they could in sound bites and interview clips, and yet the millions of readers and viewers who watched it all unfold in real time are still hungering for more. To Devon Still and his daughter, this wasn’t just a story. This was their test. This was their faith on the line. And this book is their chance to show the world just how powerful faith can be. It’s their chance to show people there’s always reason for hope—and to give them some actionable steps they can take to better their own lives, right now.

More encounters with the sometimes rich, sometimes famous, but always quirky residents of the Hamptons, by the editor and publisher of Dan’s Papers. “Dan’s memoirs are like Dan’s newspapers: charming, whimsical, fun, and filled with insightful knowledge of the East End conveyed with a twinkle in the eye. Come to think of it, that describes Dan in person as well! Buy this book!” — Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs Yes, Dan Rattiner is still in the Hamptons, and after fifty-plus years on the eastern end of Long Island, most of them as publisher of the region’s free weekly newspaper, Dan’s Papers, he still has a lot of stories to tell. Here, offered in his signature dry, observant, and self-deprecating wit, are Rattiner’s further encounters with the billionaires and celebrities, the farmers and fishermen, the eccentric artists and ordinary folks, who together make the Hamptons one of the most fashionable, exclusive, and entertaining communities in the United States. As Tom Wolfe once noted, “ If a guy says it happened in the Hamptons, and Dan Rattiner doesn’t know about it, it didn’t.” The people he writes about are presented in chronological order from 1959 to today, just as Rattiner lived it and has remembered it. Still in the Hamptons will help you understand what the Hamptons used to be and what it has become, and will provide an entertaining read along the way.

“Nikki Turner has truly brought the female hustlers to light. Fellas betta watch out, because the Girls in the Game are taking over!” –LaJill Hunt, author of Drama Queen and No More Drama A collection of explosive stories handpicked by the undisputed “queen of hip-hop fiction,” Girls in the Game presents an all-women crew of urban-lit divas. The game here is survival, and every ghetto-hardened gangsta in these tales does what she’s gotta do to make it on–or off–the mean streets. Call them what you will, but until you’ve faced their reality you’ll never know what you would do if you were in their pumps. Just remember: It’s a dirty game, and women are usually the best players. “The game ain’t to be told but sold. If that’s so, the women in Girls in the Game should be millionaires!” –KaShamba Williams, author of Mind Games “She’s baaaaaaaack! Nikki Turner has returned, bringing with her the new divas of urban fiction. These ladies raise the bar as they chronicle the streets like never before. Get ready for a literary treat.” –Tracy Brown, author of White Lines From the Trade Paperback edition.

Multi-platinum music producer and author of Gotta Get Signed How To Become A Hip Hop Producer, Sahpreem A. King is back with his long awaited follow up, Surviving The Game How To Succeed In The Music Business. In this book, Sahpreem takes music business newcomers by the hand and teaches them how to succeed in the music business the do-it-yourself way. In addition, Sahpreem talks about music publishing, marketing and promotion, starting an online record label, the power of social media, and making money from your music without being signed to a record deal. Music is a business. That’s what this book is all about. For a whole host of justifiable reasons, there have been numerous other books that have been published about the “talent side” of the music industry. What distinguishes this book is the author’s firsthand experience in the industry from both the talent side and the business side. Artists from all genres of music, managers, producers, A&R directors, entertainment lawyers, PR consultants, label executives, and the public at large will benefit immeasurably from reading and studying King’s advice and good counsel. Sahpreem King’s practical approach on how to get into the music business, and how to do well as a result of your passion for the art form and your willingness to grind and work hard every day, is informed by his years of experience, first as a DJ and recording artist, and then as a successful producer. The book is more than an industry insider’s view. Sahpreem tells you what to do and what not to do, from imparting to you his basic knowledge about music to the deeper wisdom that he has acquired over the last twenty years.

The word concussion was unheard of in youth sports a decade ago. The injury was indeed occurring, but youth athletes were often told to "shake it off" after "getting their bell rung". Science and increased awareness about concussion and brain health have transformed the way youth parents, coaches, and players pursue athletics. Fear of incurring concussions, as well as incomplete or incorrect information, is leading some parents to keep their children out of contact sports, such as football and soccer, where concussion is more prevalent. Back in the Game: Why Concussion Doesn't Have to End Your Athletic Career does not dwell on perpetuating fears but, rather, provides the most up-to-date understanding of the condition. This is a real-world discussion of what science and medicine know, what parents and coaches need to understand about concussion, evaluation and treatment, and what possible post-concussive issues exist. The expertise and experiences of noted sports neurologist Jeffrey S. Kutcher, MD, along with reporting and interviews by award-winning sports journalist Joanne C. Gerstner, make this book a timely, relevant, and real discussion about concussions in youth sports. Athletes and professional coaches who have participated in the formation of this book include two-time Olympic gold medalist soccer player Kate Markgraf, former NHL/Team Canada head coach Andy Murray, champion X-Games snowboarder Ellery Hollingsworth, along with an array of youth parents, coaches, and athletes from across the country.

Over a mere three decades, the video game has become the entertainment medium of choice for millions of people, who now spend more time in the interactive virtual world of games than they do in watching movies or even television. The release of new games or game-playing equipment, such as the PlayStation 2, generates great excitement and even buying frenzies. Yet, until now, this giant on the popular culture landscape has received little in-depth study or analysis. In this book, Mark J. P. Wolf and four other scholars conduct the first thorough investigation of the video game as an artistic medium. The book begins with an attempt to define what is meant by the term "video game" and the variety of modes of production within the medium. It moves on to a brief history of the video game, then applies the tools of film studies to look at the medium in terms of the formal aspects of space, time, narrative, and genre. The book also considers the video game as a cultural entity, object of museum curation, and repository of psychological archetypes. It closes with a list of video game research resources for further study.

This work is hard core and not for the weakest of souls. I dont worship the devil nor do I take part in cult rituals and nor do I do much at all, hell, I am very lazy. I do not attend stuff sacred rituals because I am a lazy piece of crap. I will say this, though: this book is made up of grim and intrepid societal bush whack of uncanny proportions. There are a lot of good love stories because after all, there wouldnt be anything for anyone without some good old love. As far as this books limits, like Dirt from Hard Time Radio, 89.3 said, as he said it best: this work was put together like a horror movie and thats all it is man; and there it is. Good luck to all.

Do you still curse yourself over the day you met your hero; when instead of asking him the one question that's been nagging you for years, you couldn't utter a word because you were suddenly (and uncharacteristically) struck dumb? Well, curse no more. Still Talking Blue is a unique collection of interviews that will answer everything you wanted to know about your Everton heroes and with none of the unnecessary waffle - because it only asks the relevant questions, as submitted by the fans. Collated via the Internet, disenfranchised Evertonions scattered across the globe proudly display their astounding recall of bygone events and trivia. From Iceland to South Africa, Australia to Israel, long-suffering Bluenoses are finally given the opportunity to ask questions of their heroes and they do so with panache. The book contains in-depth interviews spanning the decades from the '50s, when shorts were long and Dave Hickson's quiff was the envy of Hollywood, right through to Dave Watson's final days at the club. Join us as we endeavour to track down John Bailey's 'big hat' and Gordon West's handbag, and move seamlessly on to more pressing topics such as Kevin Ratcliffe's biggest regret, Mick Lyon's worst injury and Alan Harper's favourite goal. So, if you lie awake at night wondering just what went wrong in the '68 Cup Final, whether Jimmy Gabriel still has his white trench coat, if Barry Horne really does like The Cocteau Twins or how Dave Hickson has managed to hang on to his hair, then unfurrow your brow because the answers all lie within these pages. No Evertonion should be expected to survive without this book.

Peter C. Newman called him "the Totem of the Titans." From a small Prairie town, Daryl K. "Doc" Seaman became an icon of Canadian business and hockey. He is one of the last of a breed of postwar entrepreneurs and sportsmen who forged modern Canada, striking deals on a handshake and always keeping their word. After flying 82 combat missions during the Second World War, Doc Seaman worked in the oil industry with his brothers, turning a small Alberta drilling business into a global giant, Bow Valley Industries. Later, he led a group that brought the Atlanta Flames to Calgary. Still a Flames co-owner, he helped reshape Hockey Canada and restore Canada’s glory in international hockey. Doc Seaman’s life is a remarkable saga of courage, resolve, generosity, and success. It ultimately leaves us not only with a deep appreciation of one iconic Canadian but also with a wider understanding of our country.

If youre still single and you have looked for love in many faces or have wondered what you have done wrong and find it difficult to maintain hope while your situation is shrieking with despair, then author Mia Montgomery has the perfect book for you. Its My Business Why I Am Still Single discusses various reasons why many women remain single and unfulfilled. Through this insightful book, she shares her own experiences with the hope that other women will learn from them. Follow her journey from living loneliness to loving singleness as she laces it with poetry reflecting her candid, honest emotions. What Readers Think About This Book "I was so compelled by your honesty and realness. The poetry was beautiful. Wow, what a gift!!! I also think that the questions were a very wise choice. Thank you for being brave enough to share your life through this book. Know that you have impacted me in a great way. You have confirmed and reiterated my position about relationships. This book was right on time. I will be re-reading it. I now understand the importance of knowing, loving, and understanding me!!!!" --D.Johnson, Florida "This book wasnt about feeling pity over singleness. It is a book that makes a woman look inside and assess who she really is." --M. Edwards, Florida "I am a married woman and still this book made me re-look the way that I sometimes treat my husband and the things that I have expected from him. The poetry alone brings insight and triumph to your spirit!" --J. Murrell, Florida "Though I have read many books, I really enjoyed reading this book by Mia Montgomery. I felt that the author really paid attention to some of the main reasons and the points as to why many women who are single. She dealt with issues that need to be corrected and addressed (reversing what mama told you) and how to function within a relationship without losing yourself. The author used evidence of her life and the lives of her friends in order to make her points clear. Her evidence was convincing because I felt as if I were walking in her shoes, but mostly I felt as if, the pages were answering questions to topics I wanted answers to but didn't know how or who to ask." "There are many books in bookstores that talk about being single, but I've yet to read a book where the author totally puts themself, their experiences, and their reputation on the pages, in hopes that you will learn from their mistakes and not repeat them. The information is unique and it offers fresh insight to single women that will help to empower us and build us up. I think the author was very successful in carrying out the purpose of the book. This is a book that will uplift and build women, during their season of being single." --L. Heriscar, Orlando, FL
