Win-Win Partnerships ? Be on the Leading Edge with Synergistic Coaching
Win-Win Partnerships takes Coaching and Partnering to a new level. This book explores much more than employer/employee relationships. One gets a sense of the power that can come only through synergistic partnerships whether they be in or out of the workplace. The coaching process is given extensive, in-depth treatment. Each of the eight steps is given a full chapter with detail and clarity. Chapters one through four explore partnering and coaching through an in-depth look at our values and getting a feel for synergistic partnerships in general. Chapter five introduces the Coaching Model and is a good introduction of the coaching process. In chapter six, we see a specific example of a coaching opportunity and the positive outcome of creating a partnership instead of forcing our commanding style of leadership that can lead to adversarial relationships. Chapters seven through fourteen cover each of the eight steps one by one. Do not miss chapter fifteen: "Creating a Learning Relationship." The authors give eight wrap up points which bring coaching into perspective. Chapter fifteen send you off with a clear idea of what coaching is all about. It's about people, partners, and learning practical skills.

Amapola - Book Review
Alan Heywood writes a stimulating, though sometimes improbable, adventure novel in Amapola. What I mean by this is that the characters are seemingly very lucky or were simply at the right place, at the right time. Yet, other scenes are somewhat reminiscent of a James Bond movie. I liked the humor Alan dabbled throughout the novel and admired the strong female characters. This book certainly has a heavy slant towards the importance of friendships and a pro-Canada theme ? which I loved.George Magee, a retired Major, was never able to forget Sakai, a Costa-Ric...(related: Book Reviews)
Dragon Tales - Book Review
Dragon Tales by Mary C. Fairbanks is truly and entertaining book, chock full of twenty-four dragon stories. Perfect for youth from the age of five to fifteen, even adults would be charmed by its pages. The images are unique and interesting, with a style that left me with the impression they were created on a computer.Caregivers are likely to find the morals to each story helpful to deal with youth problems with social interaction, self-image, overcoming self-absorption, understanding others and more. The author tackles many issues through her lovable, yet egotistical dragons or even through sad and lonely dragons. She shows the importance of freedom and dictates communities working together to solve problems peacefully. The confus...(related: Book Reviews)

Author Joseph Yakel is leading a two-pronged charge to provide his avid readership with worthy materials. After releasing his first family history book in December 2004, he struck again with a comprehensive follow-up research work this month.

Book Excerpt: Give Me A Home Where The Dairy Cows Roam -- 5
May-Day!The school bus had long since disappeared over the last hill toward the main road one afternoon when I set my books on the kitchen table and hurried into the living room to talk to my mother.Mom was sitting in her favorite easy chair by the picture window, and her crutches were laid neatly on the floor next to the chair where she could reach them.Outside the window, the air was so clear everything shimmered and sparkled. The fence posts. The plum trees. The lilacs. But even though the sun was shining and the grass was as green as the bottle of food coloring in the kitchen cupboard, a chilly wind blew out of the west. I would never tell her so, but I was glad my mother had...(related: Book Reviews)
