A FINE MADNESS is about a creative spirit's struggle for survival in an analytical society. Samson Shillitoe, is (according to Shelly's definition) one of "the unacknowledged legislators of the world." But poetry does not rule our world and his obsession with completing his epic poem leads to his violating most accepted standards of behavior and into conflicts, both comic and deadly, with adversaries intent on making him "normal." Since A FINE MADNESS was published in 1964 it has achieved the status of a modern comedy classic. This new edition contains a preface by the author which will add to the reader's enjoyment. "I cannot imagine anyone reading A FINE MADNESS without his vision being sharpened and dignified." New York Times Book Review

WHEAT is a true story of the memories of a boy who grew up on a small Indiana farm just as World War II began. Dawn to dark labor year round instilled in him, the middle of three sons of a hard driving conservative Lutheran, a work ethic he applied the remainder of his life. He continues to work hard, but now it means raising millions of dollars for community projects in Brown County, Indiana. Newkirk founded the Brown County Community Foundation in 1992, served as its volunteer CEO for five years, and through it helped bring into being the Brown County Community YMCA, the award winning Brown County Public Library and the Brown County Career Resource Center. Newkirk also was the founder of the Rotary Club of Brown County. WHEAT will be an inspiration to those who think new opportunities are illusions and fulfillment in everyday life not theirs to achieve.

Wheat That Springeth Green, J. F. Powers’s beautifully realized final work, is a comic foray into the commercialized wilderness of modern American life. Its hero, Joe Hackett, is a high school track star who sets out to be a saint. But seminary life and priestly apprenticeship soon damp his ardor, and by the time he has been given a parish of his own he has traded in his hair shirt for the consolations of baseball and beer. Meanwhile Joe’s higher-ups are pressing for an increase in profits from the collection plate, suburban Inglenook’s biggest business wants to launch its new line of missiles with a blessing, and not all that far away, in Vietnam, a war is going on. Joe wants to duck and cover, but in the end, almost in spite of himself, he is condemned to do something right. J. F. Powers was a virtuoso of the American language with a perfect ear for the telling clich? and an unfailing eye for the kitsch that clutters up our lives. This funny and very moving novel about the making and remaking of a priest is one of his finest achievements.

What a bizarre title. But it is interesting isn't it? Doesn't it make you ask, "What could this be all about"? Well the truth is it's not about dogs at all; it's about leadership and honesty. Nevertheless dogs are a useful metaphor. You see, dogs are the closest thing we can find when searching for examples of uncompromising honesty. Dishonesty is not part of their DNA. In contrast, the problem for many leaders today is that at some level "most people lie." This may seem like a provocative statement but it's true, even though most of the time we do not even know we are doing it. Some, including many renowned psychologists, would even say that at some level we need to lie to survive. Do we? In a world of business, sports and political Watergates and scandals that has even culminated in Papal resignations against a background of "vatileaks," we seem to suffer from a paradoxical scenario. We find ourselves contrasting the lack of honesty that brought down many of our business and sporting figures as exemplified by the likes of Madoff, Lance Armstrong and Oscar Pistorius (to name a few), with the apparent total honesty of leaders such as the Dalai Lama, Kofi Anan and even Richard Branson or Steve Jobs. We all know that whilst some leaders command respect, others do not. Some leaders have willing followers, whilst others are followed through coercion. Some may lose their followers, whilst others should never have any. And some allow their egos to block trust, whilst others are dealers in trust. This book is therefore a journey into one of the hottest topics for leaders today - honest leadership. But this is not just another leadership book, or simply a nice story. It is about honest leaders changing the world. Now that's a big claim. But its deserved, because this book sniffs and scratches around the undergrowth searching for the real meaning of honesty and leadership and finishes up helping you uncover your own truth. And with the aid of a remarkably simple idea - the Eight Axioms of Honest Leadership - this book will provide you with the tools and skills to enable you to identify, train and maybe even tame your own leadership approach and help you to become a "top dog."
