Fanny says - poems by Brown, Nickole, author.

Fanny says - poems

An "unleashed love song" to her late grandmother, Nickole Brown's collection brings her brassy, bawdy, tough-as-new-rope grandmother to life. With hair teased to Jesus, mile-long false eyelashes, and a white Cadillac Eldorado with atomic-red leather seats, Fanny is not your typical granny rocking in a chair. Instead, think of a character that looks a lot like Eva Gabor in Green Acres, but darkened with a shadow of Flannery O'Connor. A cross-genre collection that reads like a novel, this book is

Emergence - seven steps for radical life change by Rydall, Derek, 1968-

Emergence - seven steps for radical life change

"Are you struggling to improve something about yourself--your health, your mindset, your relationships? Throw aside the self-help books and recognize this one simple, radical truth: the answer is already in you. The harder we try to change, the deeper in the hole we get. We find a new partner but have the same old fights. We strive for an ever bigger paycheck but end up broke at a higher income bracket. This is what happens when the basic principle of life--the Law of Emergence--is disrupted, st

Act like a leader, think like a leader by Ibarra, Herminia, 1961- author.

Act like a leader, think like a leader

"Today's breakneck pace of change has an immense impact on leaders-and as a result, on the organizations they run.
