Meet Tasha—single and still searching. A producer for Britain’s most popular morning show working under a nightmare boss, Tash is well-versed in the trials and tribulations of twenty-first century dating. She and her three best friends certainly haven’t lived the fairy tale they thought they would: there’s Andy, who’s hooked on passion, but too much of a tomboy to have moved much beyond the beer-drinking contest stage; Mel, stuck in a steady but loveless relationship; and Emma, endlessly waiting for her other half to propose. Their love lives are only complicated by the sort of men who seem to drift in and out: Andrew—suave, good-looking and head over heels in love . . . with himself; Simon, who is allergic to commitment but has a bad-boy nature that’s impossible to resist; and Adam—perfectly attractive, but too sweet to be sexy. The bestselling first novel that launched Jane Green, one of the brightest stars in contemporary women’s fiction, Straight Talking sets the record straight regarding the real world of dating, and follows the adventures of Tash and her friends as they search for fulfillment and the right kind of love. Funny, flirty, and ultimately tender, Straight Talking gets at the heart of modern romance.

A father once taught his son that the two things he should avoid debating are faith and politics. He was adamant that his son avoids political arguments, citing that no one ever wins them because people are passionately stubborn about the powers that represent them. Concerning matters of faith, his father offered the same counsel, claiming people are equally as passionate about the “higher power(s)” they represent. In Straight Talk, against his father’s advice, the author dives into both arguments. Within is a conversation for theocracy over democracy and God’s Will over man’s way. In Straight Talk For Crooked Church, Pastor Armand arms the reader with an awareness of the Divine Design for Church. This read will undoubtedly tear down obstacles that hinder churches from being and functioning as God’s intended Bride. This book is not a vaccination against the challenges of Church leadership or Church scandal. It serves, however, as a kind of blueprint churches need to stand upright and be strong. While critics of the Church are leery of so-called “Jesus freaks,” Straight Talk seeks to correct any misinterpretations about the Church by painting an accurate picture of the Body of Christ, along with its functions, as they were originally intended by its Architect, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Open communication about sex with your children isn’t necessarily easy, but it can be done; this indispensable book will guide you every step of the way.

If you start talking early enough, kids will listen. FOR MANY PARENTS, the talk is one of the most dreaded rites of passage in the child-raising experience--but it doesn’t have to be. The key is to start early when talking about sex with your child. In Dr. Fred Kaeser’s progressive approach, parents become their child’s first resource for sexual information (instead of ceding control to peers, the school system, or the media) in order to have a lasting and positive influence over their child’s sexual development. As the former director of health in the New York City public schools, there’s nothing Dr. Kaeser hasn’t been asked by kids, or by parents. And he has seen firsthand the results of our increasingly sexualized youth culture, and how it’s making children grow up faster than ever these days. From sexting to cyberbullying, challenges and pressures abound--even for kids in kindergarten. This means that parents must begin laying the groundwork for basic conversations about sex when their child is as young as three years old. Parents then build their discussions on this early foundation, introducing more information at developmentally appropriate ages (for example, talking about puberty with your eight-year-old, and discussing safe sex with your ten-year-old). What Your Child Needs to Know About Sex (and When) goes far beyond the birds and the bees to discuss uncomfortable issues with a winning frankness and empowering attitude. It offers families the tools they need for navigating how and when to have positive dialogues about sexuality and helps parents learn to use everyday teachable moments. Open communication about sex with your children isn’t necessarily easy, but it can be done; this indispensable book will guide you every step of the way.

Author: Ed Schultz

Ed Schultz is here to slay the "right-wing radio dragon" and revitalize the charge against Bush-era "conservative cruelty" with his own bold, irreverent truth-talk. When the self-described "gun-toting, meat-eating, drug-free liberal" from America's heartland came out swinging with his syndicated radio program, The Ed Schultz Show, listeners realized right away that this was no cookie-cutter liberal, but a tough-talking advocate for everything that's right about the left. "A free press is all that stands between you and a dictatorship," warns Schultz, in defiance of the Bush administration and ultra-conservative talking heads like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, whom he blames for quashing political debate just when America needs it most. While Big Ed has what it takes to "go bare-knuckle brawling" with his staunchest detractors, it is with a deep compassion and impeccable common sense that he describes how our "government by the rich and for the rich" is imperiling the lives of average hard-working Americans. In Straight Talk from the Heartland, Schultz rails against the havoc that our nation's leaders are wreaking on everything from international relations to homeland defense, from our skyrocketing federal deficit to the disenfranchised families of rural America who are struggling to make ends meet. With a heady mix of patriotism, outrage, humor, and hope, he makes an urgent appeal to universal virtues such as honesty and liberty, and reminds readers of what he calls the Four Pillars of a Great Nation: Defending America: "We have lost faith in our leaders. The world has lost faith in us. Our foray into Iraq, to disarm a nation of biological and nuclear weapons they did not have, has shrunk American credibility like a cheap sweater." A Sound Economy: "The Bushies are like street hustlers. While they show you a meager tax cut with one hand, they steal your wallet with the other." Feeding the Nation: "Bad farm policy and bad trade agreements are running the American farmer off the land. It's killing small towns, and small towns are the heart of this nation." Educating America: "Don't start counting your tax break just yet. Your state and local taxes are rising to support the unfunded mandate of the No Child Left Behind act." "I'm here to give it to you straight," Big Ed says. "I've got faith that, when Americans grasp what's going on around them, they'll start acting like a bear fresh out of hibernation -- famished, ill-tempered, and ready to start raising hell." Straight Talk from the Heartland is the wake-up call America has been waiting for.

This new and expanded second edition is written for people who stutter and for those who interact with people who stutter, including caregivers, teachers, and speech-language pathologists. The text is presented in two parts. The first part includes basic information about the disorder and addresses common questions that people have about stuttering: What is stuttering? What causes it? How does it develop? Can it be prevented? This section also includes a new chapter entitled Living with Stuttering. The second part of the book discusses effective therapy approaches used with both children and adults who stutter. This part includes another new chapter, Evaluating People Who Stutter. The text is written in a very reader-friendly and practical manner. It represents a reasonably thorough review of what is known about stuttering and offers bottom-line conclusions rather than theoretical speculations and research findings that arrived at these conclusions. While the text includes the technical language used by speech-language pathologists in reference to stuttering, great care has been taken to explain each term. In addition, the book includes a helpful glossary. This unique and exceptional book is written by a clinician who stutters and who is passionate about helping others learn about stuttering. He addresses the reader, not as a guru of truth, but as a person who has gained some understanding about stuttering through both his professional and personal experiences with the disorder.

Author: Bill Hull
Publisher: Baker Books
Every church wants to experience the fullness of God, but many feel discomfort and confusion when the question of gifts of the Holy Spirit is raised. What does it mean to move in the power of the Holy Spirit? Isn't the issue of gifts of the Spirit divisive to evangelical churches? Straight Talk on Spiritual Power begins with Bill Hull's own theological journey from being a student at a charismatic university to a cessationist to a pastor with a moderate position affirming the full ministry of the Holy Spirit in the church today. Using Jesus as the ultimate model, Hull searches the Scriptures and finds a consistent balance between the Word of God and the power of the Spirit. He shares the gradual change in his own church as it grew to experience the gospel with power, the Holy Spirit, and deep conviction. Conscious of the fears and confusion often surrounding this topic, Hull carefully looks at topics such as speaking in tongues, baptism in the Holy Spirit, healing, prophecy, and miracles, and offers thorough scriptural as well as practical instruction.
