5. Reading the Bible Backwards (Large Print 16pt) - Robert Priest

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Reverse engineering the word, meme splicing, morpheme replacement therapy, phonetic modifications: these are some of the techniques in play throughout Reading the Bible Backwards, the lyrical thought experiments that make up this eagerly anticipated new collection of poems by Robert Priest. By throwing the Bible and other cultural narratives on the turntable and spinning them backwards, Priest unleashes surprisingly new but strangely familiar music and meaning. Whether the movements are sideways, inverted, or omni - directional, his satire has never been sharper - or darker. Ultimately, though, Priest's lyric voice has never been more finely tuned or elegant, especially in the wonderfully groundbreaking ''I Love You Forwards'' poems that afford this book its remarkable balance.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Unrealized potential is rampant in today's workplace - if you're frustrated, you're not alone. Even top performers say that 30 to 40 percent of their talent lies untapped, according to surveys by Don Maruska and Jay Perry. A Gallup survey found that only 29 percent of all US employees felt engaged by their work, costing employers an estimated 400 to 500 billion dollars a year. Company - sponsored talent development programs can help, but they can't reach everyone. The good news is you have the power to develop your own talent, without waiting for someone else to give you the thumbs up. Take Charge of Your Talent presents three keys that you can use to determine your own career destiny. You'll begin by gaining a fresh perspective on your aspirations and opportunities through a carefully structured conversation with your chosen Talent Catalyst - a coworker, relative, or friend. Then you'll discover a host of ways to accelerate through obstacles, keep your hopes and energy high, and turn challenges into opportunities. Finally, you'll put it all together and transform your knowledge and skills into tangible assets and a personal brand that give you room to grow and multiply the payoffs for yourself and your organization.

7. Roadshow Landscape with Drums: A Concert Tour by Motorcycle (Large Print 16pt) - Neil Peart

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

For thirty years, drummer, author, and songwriter Neil Peart had wanted to write a book about ''the biggest journey of all in my restless existence: the life of a touring musician.'' Finally, the right time, and the right tour . . . In the summer of 2004, after three decades, twenty gold albums, and thousands of performances spanning four continents, the band Rush embarked on a celebratory 30th Anniversary World Tour. The ''R30'' tour traveled to nine countries, where the band performed fifty - seven shows in front of more than half a million fans. Uniquely, Peart chose to do his between - show traveling by motorcycle, riding 21,000 miles of back roads and highways in North America and Europe - from Appalachian hamlets and Western deserts to Scottish castles and Alpine passes. Roadshow illuminates the daunting rigors of a major international concert tour, as well as Peart's exploration of the scenic byways and country towns along the way. His evocative and entertaining prose carries the reader through every performance and every journey, sharing the bittersweet reflections triggered by the endlessly unfolding landscape. Observations and reflections range from the poignantly, achingly personal to the wickedly irreverent. Part behind - the - scenes memoir, part existential travelogue, Roadshow winds through nineteen countries on both sides of the Atlantic, in search of the perfect show, the perfect meal, the perfect road, and an elusive inner satisfaction that comes only with the recognition that the journey itself is the ultimate destination. The inner workings of the tour, the people Peart works with and the people he meets, the roads and stages and ever - changing scenery - all flow into an irresistible story.

11. Augustine in Carthage and Other Poems (Large Print 16pt) - Alessandro Porco

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Augustine in Carthage, and Other Poems is the daring new collection of poetry from Alessandro Porco. Equally crude and charming, locker - room macho and sensitive, these poems are always singularly marked by formal ingenuity and stylistic lan. A poetry that gleefully articulates the possibilities of a 21st century balls - deep masculinity, Porco's new collections begins with its most important work, ''Augustine in Carthage,'' a trans - historical re - imagining of Book III of St. Augustine's Confessions, which includes (among other things) philosophizing strippers, Tampico bombers, rabbit holes, coprology, and comic - book heroism. But for all its bombast ''Augustine in Carthage'' examines, quite seriously, ideas related to the experience of experience, the morality of poetry, and the hypocrisy of spiritual conversion. The book ends with an equally significant suite of depraved yet learned limericks: Porco's perverse star shines in this unprecedented contribution to Canadian letters, exploring myriad filthy matters of heart. Augustine in Carthage, and Other Poems also includes translations of Italian poetry, re - mixes of classic English poems, performance pieces, tender love poems, and - if you would believe - even a short pornographic novel. Reminding readers that through Tradition the strange and new emerges, this is a deeply - felt and original collection, a work that understands (as its epigraph, in the words of Diderot, insists) ''there is a bit of testicle at the bottom of our most sublime feelings and our purest tenderness.''

12. Far and Away A Prize Every Time (Large Print 16pt) - Neil Peart

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Following in the tradition of Ghost Rider and Traveling Music, Rush drummer Neil Peart lets us ride with him along the backroads of North America, Europe, and South America, sharing his experiences in personal reflections and full - color photos. Spanning almost four years, these 22 stories are open letters that recount adventures both personal and universal - from the challenges and accomplishments in the professional life of an artist to the birth of a child. These popular stories, originally posted on Neil's website, are now collected and contextualized with a new introduction and conclusion in this beautifully designed collector's volume.
Fans will discover a more intimate side to Neil's very private personal life and will enjoy his observations of natural phenomena. At one point, he anxiously describes the birth of two hummingbirds in his backyard; at the same time, his wife is preparing for the birth of their daughter - a striking synchronicity tenderly related to readers.
A love of drumming, nature, art, and the open road threads through the narrative, as Neil explores new horizons, both physical and spiritual. This is the personal, introspective travelogue of rock's foremost drummer, enthusiastic biker, and sensitive husband and father. Far and Away is a book to be enjoyed again and again, like letters from a distant friend.

14. Trouble in the Camera Club (Large Print 16pt) - Don Pyle

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Trouble in the Camera Club features over 300 photographs by Don Pyle and another 200 images of related ephemera from the earliest days of Toronto's punk music scene, featuring early gigs by Toronto bands like The Viletones, Teenage Head, The Curse, The Diodes, and The Ugly, and visiting punks the Ramones, Iggy Pop, Patti Smith, The Clash, Vibrators, The Stranglers, and other artists influential to the punk movement including Bryan Ferry, David Bowie, and Cheap Trick.
Starting in 1976, at age 14, Don Pyle witnessed and photographed some of the earliest gigs of Toronto punk acts and many of the artists whose sensibilities aligned with this new, festering subculture. According to Steven Leckie of The Viletones, Pyle's photographs ''made everyone look heroic, as good as Annie Leibovitz and Linda McCartney.''
In 1977, Pyle bought a 35mm camera and joined his high school's camera club to learn how to develop and print, and to get free chemicals for processing. His trial - and - error education in photography resulted in a collection of images that, 30 - something years later, are as much historic document as they are pictures of an under - represented and significant period in Toronto's musical cultural development. Scratched, water - marked, and dusty negatives were restored to reveal his hidden history of the revolution. Numerous artists that have since passed away are captured in this book in their creative prime, frozen in youthful self - absorbed beauty. These are photos taken by a kid in awe of what he was seeing and who was pressed against the stage at every gig, not by a ''professional'' who observed from the sidelines.
Trouble in the Camera Club is a one - of - a - kind photo - documentary of this golden moment - the birth of punk.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

In an affluent city perched on Ontario's Niagara Escarpment, residents begin turning up on the pathologist's autopsy table with what looks like epidemic mad cow disease. Zol Szabo, a public - health doctor and former chef, and Hamish Wakefield, a young infectious - diseases specialist, must trace the epidemic to its source while dodging the deadly prions that appear to have contaminated almost everything in the supermarket. Things spin out of control and more lives are threatened when a government - appointed investigator pulls rank, hijacks the investigation, and allows his inflated ego to supersede common sense. Incidents of contamination of the food supply are featured almost weekly in the news. In Tainted, the clock is ticking to discover the source of the disease before it can spread, while navigating the political minefield of the hospital and the media. A suspenseful and vexing medical thriller, Tainted comments on the vagaries of modern medicine, and explores the complexities of relationships between men: fathers and sons, colleagues and subordinates, gay men and their lovers. Tainted is a medical thriller that illustrates the potential disastrous consequences of misplacing our trust in those who manufacture our food and our pharmaceuticals.

16. I'm Sorry I Broke Your Company When Management Consultants Are the Problem, Not the Solution (Large Print 16pt) - Karen Phelan

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Karen Phelan is really sorry. She had the best of intentions. She got into consulting because she wanted to help. She tried hard to optimize processes, develop measures, and manage human assets - to do business by the numbers, the management consultant way. The only problem, she found, is that businesses are run by people, not formulas and scorecards. And people don't follow the formulas. From strategy development to process improvement, target metrics, talent management, leadership competencies, and more, Phelan dissects a whole range of consulting treatments for unhealthy companies and shows why they're essentially fad diets: superficial would - be fixes that don't result in any lasting improvement and can actually cause serious damage. But consultants don't seem to notice. If reality doesn't conform to the theories, they conclude, something must certainly be wrong - with reality. People aren't trying hard enough to make the theories work. Using tragicomic tales from her many years as a consultant, Phelan exposes precisely how various management fads fail when taken from the printed page to the actual working world. The solution is not as glamorous as applying the management model du jour, just more effective. Over and over, Phelan found that there's simply no substitute for taking the time to understand the unique dynamics of an organization, talking to the people who run it - on every level, not just in the C - suites - and getting them to work together better. With a mix of cleared - eyed business analysis, heart - wrenching stories, and hard - won lessons for both consultants and the people who hire them, this book is impossible to put down and impossible to ignore. Karen Phelan and other consultants may have ''broken'' your company, but she's eager to repair the damage and make amends. She offers the perfect antidote to years of management malpractice.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Dr. Zol Szabo chose public health for its noble ideals and predictable hours. He never expected to be intimidated by the Prime Minister's Office, roughed up by the RCMP, or threatened by the Hamilton mob.
Though Zol and his team have investigated every centimetre of Camelot Lodge, a residence for healthy seniors blessed with generous pensions and high - ranking political connections, the source of the converted mansion's spate of fatal food poisonings remains elusive. As the death count rises, the outbreak threatens Zol's beloved grandfather Art Greenwood, a military veteran, engineering genius, and piano whiz. The Mounties muscle in, and Zol's boss threatens him with exile to North Overshoe. Zol's friend and colleague Hamish Wakefield, obsessed with microbes and car washes, discovers dangers at the Lodge that make the rabid bats in the turret and the dumpster - diving cook seem like minor indiscretions.
As Zol and Hamish struggle with the scientific details, Zol's private - eye girlfriend Colleen tails potential suspects, and the health unit's epidemic specialist Natasha Sharma sifts through mountains of disappointing data. It takes Art Greenwood, marshalling the insights of his silver - haired companions, to expose the deaths for what they are: a string of murders. Decades after wars are over, peace is not as simple as a comfy chair in Camelot.
