<h2><i>“Iron…and…salt,” whispers the old man. The dead old man. “Hurry or it will be too late…”</i></h2><br />In a bid to escape the stresses of city life, Brian Roy moves his family out into the country, a decision that will forever thrust him into the chilling world of ghosts…<br /><br /><i>This digital box set contains all of the six thrilling supernatural novels in this best-selling series:</i><br /><br /><b>Moving In: </b>The utopia of a peaceful country oasis is brutally shattered when Brian discovers a dead body in the woods, and his home has been infiltrated by murderous ghosts. Perhaps this wasn’t the change he was looking for, but Brian prays that he’s up to the challenge.<br /><br /><b>The Dunewalkers: </b> William Engberg moves into a house by the shore to escape his tragic past. Unfortunately, he finds a legion of unwanted guests in his new home: ghosts. Determined to beat them, he enlists the help of ghost hunter Brian Roy, who is armed with a rare journal on how to vanquish the dead. <br /><br /><b>Middlebury Sanitarium: </b> Brian Roy leads a successful ghost hunting organization called The Leonidas Group, but he may have finally met his match against the evil spirits lurking in Middlebury Sanitarium. Encountering everything from a vengeful King, to lost souls still fighting WWI, Brian and his team have their hands full. <br /><br /><b>The First Church: </b> In his latest adventure, Brian Roy will fight the ghosts of headless Japanese soldiers wreaking havoc in a New Hampshire church. They have indiscriminately murdered and maimed everyone from children to police officers, and the ghosts’ thirst for vengeance is as insatiable as their thirst for saké.<br /><br /><b>The Paupers’ Crypt:</b> Brian Roy succumbs to the stress of his job, and gives himself a break by taking up work as a superintendent at Woods Cemetery. At first, he couldn’t be happier … until dead people rear their grisly heads and grasping hands, pulling him back into his old job of ghost hunting. <br /><br /><b>The Academy: </b>Brian’s exhaustion is deeper than ever before. But when he finds out his cousin Mitchell, the principal of the Academy, is running into some ghostly trouble, he races against time to stop them. <br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><b>What reviewers are saying:</b><br /><br />★★★★★ 'Bravo.

<b>On December 16, 1944, the vanguard of three German armies, totalling half a million men, attacked U.S. forces in the Ardennes region of Belgium and Luxembourg, achieving what had been considered impossible — total surprise.</b><br /><br />In the most abysmal failure of battlefield intelligence in the history of the U.S. Army, 600,000 American soldiers found themselves facing Hitler’s last desperate effort of the war.<br /><br />The brutal confrontation that ensued became known as the Battle of the Bulge, the greatest battle ever fought by the U.S. Army — a triumph of American ingenuity and dedication over an egregious failure in strategic intelligence. <br /><br /><em>A Time for Trumpets</em> is the definitive account of this dramatic victory, told by one of America’s most respected military historians, who was also an eyewitness to the conflict: MacDonald commanded a rifle company in the Battle of the Bulge. <br /><br />His account of this unique battle is exhaustively researched, honestly recounted, and movingly authentic in its depiction of hand-to-hand combat.<br /><br />Mingling first-hand experience with the insights of a distinguished historian, MacDonald places this profound human drama unforgettably on the landscape of history.<br /><br /><em>A Time for Trumpets</em> is a thorough account of an immensely influential battle.<br /><br /><h2>Praise for Charles MacDonald</h2><br /><br /><b>'Charles B. MacDonald writes not just military history but history of people caught up in momentous events. His is an epic account of one of history’s most dramatic battles.' — John Toland, historian</b><br /><br /><b>'Combines a historian’s detachment and precision with the personal feeling of a man who was there...Moving beyond expectations' — The New York Times</b><br /><br /><b>The trumpets of the title peal throughout these pages...in a book that will appeal specialists and general readers alike.' — Publishers Weekly</b><br /><br /><b>Charles B.

<div>“As homo sapiens’ entry in any intergalactic design competition, industrial civilization would be tossed out at the qualifying round.”<br /><br />— David Orr, <i>Earth in Mind</i><br /><br /> <br /><br />Design has built global brands, disrupted industries, and transformed our lives with technology. It has also contributed to the complex challenges we face today. In <i>The Intergalactic Design Guide</i>, business strategist and designer Cheryl Heller shows how social design can help address our most pressing challenges, from poverty to climate change.<br /><br /> <br /><br />Social design offers a new approach to navigate uncertainty, increase creativity, strengthen relationships, and develop our capacity to collaborate. Innovative leaders like Paul Farmer, Oprah Winfrey, and Marshall Ganz have instinctively practiced social design for decades. Heller has worked with many of these pioneers, observing patterns in their methods and translating them into an approach that can bring new creative energy to any organization. From disrupting the notion of “expert” by seeking meaningful input from many voices to guiding progress through open-ended questions instead of five-year plans, social design changes how humans relate to each other, with powerful positive impacts.<br /><br /> <br /><br /><i>The Intergalactic Design Guide</i> explains eleven common principles, a step-by-step process, and the essential skills for successful social design. Nine in-depth examples—from the CEO of the largest carpet manufacturer in the world to a young entrepreneur with a passion for reducing food waste—illustrate the social design process in action.<br /><br /> <br /><br />Social design is a new kind of creative leadership that generates both traditional and social value, and can change the way we all view our work. Whether you are launching a start-up or managing a global NGO, <i>The Intergalactic Design Guide</i> provides both inspiration and practical steps for designing a more resilient and fulfilling future.<br /><br /> </div>
Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion

Until recently, Elizabeth Cline was a typical American consumer. She’d grown accustomed to shopping at outlet malls, discount stores like T.J. Maxx, and cheap but trendy retailers like Forever 21, Target, and H&M. She was buying a new item of clothing almost every week (the national average is sixty-four per year) but all she had to show for it was a closet and countless storage bins packed full of low-quality fads she barely wore—including the same sailor-stripe tops and fleece hoodies as a million other shoppers. When she found herself lugging home seven pairs of identical canvas flats from Kmart (a steal at $7 per pair, marked down from $15!), she realized that something was deeply wrong. <p><br />Cheap fashion has fundamentally changed the way most Americans dress. Stores ranging from discounters like Target to traditional chains like JCPenney now offer the newest trends at unprecedentedly low prices. Retailers are pro­ducing clothes at enormous volumes in order to drive prices down and profits up, and they’ve turned clothing into a disposable good. After all, we have little reason to keep wearing and repairing the clothes we already own when styles change so fast and it’s cheaper to just buy more. </p><p><br />But what are we doing with all these cheap clothes? And more important, what are they doing to us, our society, our environment, and our economic well-being? </p><p><br />In <i>Overdressed, </i>Cline sets out to uncover the true nature of the cheap fashion juggernaut, tracing the rise of budget clothing chains, the death of middle-market and independent retail­ers, and the roots of our obsession with deals and steals. She travels to cheap-chic factories in China, follows the fashion industry as it chases even lower costs into Bangladesh, and looks at the impact (both here and abroad) of America’s drastic increase in imports. She even explores how cheap fashion harms the charity thrift shops and textile recyclers where our masses of cloth­ing castoffs end up.</p><p><br />Sewing, once a life skill for American women and a pathway from poverty to the middle class for workers, is now a dead-end sweatshop job. The pressures of cheap have forced retailers to drastically reduce detail and craftsmanship, making the clothes we wear more and more uniform, basic, and low quality. Creative inde­pendent designers struggle to produce good and sustainable clothes at affordable prices.</p><p><br />Cline shows how consumers can break the buy-and-toss cycle by supporting innovative and stylish sustainable designers and retailers, refash­ioning clothes throughout their lifetimes, and mending and even making clothes themselves.</p><p><i><br />Overdressed </i>will inspire you to vote with your dollars and find a path back to being well dressed and feeling good about what you wear.</p>

Over the last twenty-five years, we have seen a dramatic shift in the balance of power from institutions to civil society. Individuals have never been more demanding toward Big Business.<br /> <br />This unstoppable change has been fueled by the New Normal—an interconnected, hyper-transparent, and media-anarchic world forcing companies to rethink their contribution to society. Not all businesses have found the answer to thrive in the New Normal beyond delivering short-term shareholder value.<br /> <br />Alberto Lopez-Valenzuela has worked with leaders of some of the world’s biggest companies and has spent years analyzing how companies build authentic reputations that create tangible value. Using extensive research and in-depth interviews with some of the most forward-thinking leaders in Corporate Affairs, Alberto shares a new model, The Connecting Leader, to help companies establish an authentic relationship with key stakeholders that not only delivers greater economic value but also enables a positive social contract.
