Chain Reaction by Darrell Scott,Steve Rabey Book Summary:
Rachel Scott and her killer Eric Harris both talked about starting a "chain reaction." Eric used violence to kill and destroy at Columbine High School. But Rachel chose another path. In a personal creed she wrote one month before her death in the Columbine tragedy, she explained her conviction that if one person goes out of his or her way to show compassion, it will start a world-changing chain reaction of kindness. For Rachel, this was a solemn calling. And now her father, Darrell Scott, is carrying on her crusade by challenging people of all ages to commit themselves to creating a revolution of compassion that can make a real difference in our troubled world. Chain Reaction spells out this challenge in compelling detail, providing moving examples of practical compassion and giving illustrations from Rachel's life and journals.
Beyond Vengeance, Beyond Duality by Sylvia Clute Book Summary:
We are in trouble. Our social, financial, and religious institutions are crumbling. Our criminal justice system is a prime example of society’s dysfunction.More than 1 in 100 Americans are now in jail.Taxes now finance the incarceration of 1 in 53 of adults in their 20s.There are now 2.3 million people locked up in the U.S. (the same number of prisoners in Russia and China combined).The U.S. accounts for 5 percent of the world’s population--and 25 percent of the world’s prisoners. What courtroom veteran and law professor Sylvia Clute saw on a daily basis was all too often the miscarriage of justice. Because of her legal background, Clute focuses on legal horror stories to demonstrate her underlying thesis: The crisis in our legal system is merely symptomatic of a rot found in each of our institutions. It is rooted in a philosophy of dualism that pits us against one another. It is rooted in a philosophy that fails to recognize the oneness or unity of all life. Clute unfolds her argument for applying the philosophy of non-duality to not only our criminal justice system, but to all social relationships. She explores the roots of dualist thinking in the religious traditions of the world and offers the hope that if individuals--and societies--can move beyond dualistic thinking, we will create a society that is truly just and authentically caring. Part social policy, part metaphysics, this is a book for all who are looking for a new model for individual and societal relationships.

Dr. Montori shows how we can work together to create a system that offers tailored healthcare in a kind and careful way.

Behavior and Environment by A. Esser Book Summary:
The International Symposium on "The Use of Space by Animals and Men," sponsored by the Animal Behavior Society, took place at the 135th Annual Meeting of the AAAS in Dallas, Texas, on December 29-31, 1968. This book presents the text of all papers and edited discus sions, as well as the contributions made by several individuals who were unable ·to attend the Symposium. The idea of holding the Symposium evolved following my presenta tion of a paper to the Animal Behavior Society in 1965  on the use of space by psychiatric patients. Members in attendance at that ses sion, chaired by G. Gottlieb, shared his interest in my compilation of human data presented in a measurable spatial context. This plea sant experience persuaded me that a discussion of space might be shared as a frame of reference which could open avenues of communica tion between behavioral scientists, the design community, and the de cision makers in our society.
The Demise of Compassion by Donald G. Davis Book Summary:
Over the years, our nation's value system has been disrupted. During the rise of our present generation and the birthing of a new generation, our nation's caring and compassion appear to have diminished. People are more concerned with their own self-preservation and self-worth. Careers have become the focal point of men and women alike. People have become self-centered, looking for the advancement of their cause, and unfortunately, it is at the expense of love and compassion. Why is compassion in our society on the decline? Dr. Donald Davis seeks to find the causes of and solutions to this decline in his study, The Demise of Compassion: A Casualty of a Changing Culture. In this study, Dr. Davis explores: • compassion versus culture • the essence of compassion • the challenges facing compassion • and the path that is leading to compassion's demise • the road to recovery By utilizing over thirty years of pastoral experience with the thoughts of the leading experts on compassion, Dr. Davis provides a tough but fair look at what is happening in our modern society. Join Dr. Davis as he analyzes the trends in compassion today and shares simple, everyday ways that compassion can be restored in The Demise of Compassion: A Casualty of a Changing Culture.
Free to be Human by David Edwards Book Summary:
This is a book about freedom, and above all about the idea that there is often no greater obstacle to freedom than the assumption that it has already been fully attained. While in the West few individuals today suffer physical restraint by the state, we are still constrained by powerful psychological chains, which are in many ways far more effective, if only because they are so difficult to perceive. Influential writers such as Noam Chomsky and Edward Herman have shown that the corporately controlled mass media of Western democracies serve as a giant filter system favouring powerful state and business interests: what we receive as 'objective news' about domestic politics, human rights and environmental issues, is in fact an extremely partial and biased view of the world. Free to be Human shows how the same filter system distorts our understanding of many personal, ethical and spiritual issues, ensuring that we remain passive, conformist, confused and uninformed; and willing to accept the irrational values of corporate consumerism. David Edwards argues that, in order to counter this continual process of disinformation and disempowerment, we need to master the arts of 'intellectual self-defence' and so become able to challenge the deceptions of a system that subordinates people and planet to the drive for profit.

The Unfinished Revolution by Kathleen Gerson Book Summary:
In the controversial public debate over modern American families, the vast changes in family life--the rise of single, two-paycheck, and same-sex parents--have often been blamed for declining morality and unhappy children. Drawing upon pioneering research with the children of the gender revolution, Kathleen Gerson reveals that it is not a lack of "family values," but rigid social and economic forces that make it difficult to have a vibrant and committed family and work life. Despite the entrance of women into the workforce and the blurring of once clearly defined gender boundaries, men and women live in a world where the demands of balancing parenting and work, autonomy and commitment, time and money are left largely unresolved. Gerson finds that while an overwhelming majority of young men and women see an egalitarian balance within committed relationships as the ideal, today's social and economic realities remain based on conventional--and now obsolete--distinctions between breadwinning and caretaking. In this equity vacuum, men and women develop conflicting strategies, with women stressing self-reliance and men seeking a new traditionalism. With compassion for all perspectives, Gerson argues that whether one decides to give in to traditionally imbalanced relationships or to avoid marriage altogether, these approaches are second-best responses, not personal preferences or inherent attributes, and they will shift if new options can be created to help people achieve their egalitarian aspirations. The Unfinished Revolution offers clear recommendations for the kinds of workplace and community changes that would best bring about a more egalitarian family life--a new flexibility at work and at home that benefits families, encourages a thriving economy, and helps women and men integrate love and work. Praise for the Hardcover: "Over the past three decades, social change has blown apart the old-fashioned ideal of the nuclear family--and Gerson has set out to map where the pieces have landed." --New York Post "Valuable for the abundance and candor of the testimony from this unmoored generation pioneering through radically altered conceptions of personal and professional life." --Publishers Weekly "This is not a battle that can be won with legal challenges or legislation. Yes, it would undoubtedly be greatly aided by the passage of major social policies such as universal child care. But at its core, this is a fight that plays out within homes and between partners. And as Gerson's research makes clear, the fight has not changed all that dramatically in the past 30 years." --The American Prospect
Compassionate Capitalism by Blaine Bartlett,David Meltzer Book Summary:
International #1 Best Seller Business is the most pervasive and influential force on the planet today. Its activities transcend national and international borders. Its activities are not unduly constrained by financial, political, cultural, ethnic, or religious concerns. The net of this is that business, as a prevalent and important force, has a moral responsibility to guide, enhance, value, and nourish the existence of all that it encounters. In the world today, the absolute opposite of this occurs. Business today seldom assesses the efficacy of its activities through the lens of anything but profit. The true purpose of business is to uplift the experience of existing. It is not to make owners wealthy. It is not to produce ever-cheaper goods and services. It is not to keep an avaricious and toxic economic model afloat. And it is certainly not (with no apology to Milton Friedman) to make a profit. From our perspective, business is nothing less than a spiritual discipline, it requires the same integrity, commitment, intentionality, courage, discipline, and compassion as any other spiritual discipline. Spiritual disciplines honor life, in all its forms, as having innate and intrinsic value simply because it exists. It's the honoring of this value-the ennobling of this value-that is called forth when we approach business as a spiritual undertaking. It is the compassionate thing to do.
A Compassionate Conservative by James Joseph Kenneally Book Summary:
"We could use many more like him in our public life," was how Newsweek summed up the career of Joseph W. Martin Jr., a long-time Republican leader and chairman of the Republican National Committee and National Conventions. In this, the first full-length, scholarly examination of Martin's career, readers will encounter a devoted public servant who often modified his party's extreme stances on domestic matters during the Great Depression and on foreign policy issues leading up to World War II. This political biography effectively illustrates that bipartisanship does not mean abandonment of principles, that kindness, integrity, and gentility are compatible with effective leadership, and that close friendships with members of the opposing party can contribute to a more effective Congress.
Legends and Stories for a Compassionate America by Luigi Morelli Book Summary:
Legends & Stories for a Compassionate America The American dream has been abused, neglected, and nearly completely discredited. It is now turning into a nightmare: witness the extreme and still-growing social disparity, and the aspirations to world empire that consume precious resources in war efforts around the world. Yet this is the nature of a dream—to hover between potential and reality, advance and retreat. The legends and stories in this book begin with our Native American heritage and continue with historical turning points and biographies of important individuals at the time of the American Revolution and up to modern times. The first part of the book concerns the birth of the nation; the second records periodic efforts to revive the original founding impulses. Through the biographies of important individuals, the role of national holidays and determining events, the book allows the American soul to reveal itself. When these phenomena appear in their fullest light, the American dream appears as a whole that is more than the sum of its parts (the stories and legends); moreover, it is a whole that is universal. The book speaks with relevance and urgency to all who want to renew hope in the future of our nation and of the world. Luigi Morelli is also the author of A Revolution of Hope: Spirituality, Culture and Social Change

Visions for a Compassionate America by Luigi Morelli Book Summary:
This book carries further what was brought in the previous book (Legends and Stories for a Compassionate America), from the present into the future. There is a thematic continuity between original Native American impulses (of the Iroquois in particular), the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution, and a twenty-first century impulse that strives to radically and peacefully transform American society. America is at a crossroads. We can choose a culture of denial, a growing politics of secrecy and the continual erosion of individual rights; or we can open the doors to new possibilities. This is both a personal and a national choice, which we are continuously facing. A new civil culture has emerged and grown progressively over the last sixty years. It is now gathering strength and visibility, offering America and the world something completely different from an economic globalization run amok. This movement is already creating new cultural values; promoting a fuller and participatory democracy that meets the needs of all; and fostering a sustainable economy. All elements of the vision add to each other, and form a new paradigm; they bring new meaning and possibilities to the American Dream. Luigi Morelli is also the author of A Revolution of Hope: Spirituality, Culture and Social Change

Innuendo Bonanza! by Garry Bushell Book Summary:
Garry starting collecting TV bloopers more than 20 years ago, when his Bushell on the Box column was first published in The Sun. "To err is human", writes Garry, "but to really cock things up, you need a TV presenter!" Garry's Goofs are rooted in the traditional English love of the innuendo, in particular the unintentional double meaning. Whether it's the host of Antiques Roadshow telling the busty owner of two glass decanters "that's the nicest pair I've seen in ages!" or whether it's the witless presenter of Who Do You Think You Are asking a guest "did your great-grandfather have any children?"... you'll love 'em all! INNUENDO BONANZA contains more than 1,000 classic goofs, guaranteed to have you in stitches. Childish, maybe. Puerile, certainly. But very funny!
