7. What's Wrong with University And How to Make It Work for You Anyway (Large Print 16pt) - Jeff Rybak

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

The university system has its problems. Students invest a lot of time and money in education but all too often don't get what they came for. In What's Wrong With University, Jeff Rybak addresses the most pressing concerns for undergraduate students, and helps them cope with the university system. He illustrates the university as having five distinct functions, which are often in conflict with each other. Students often find themselves at cross purposes with those with different goals and motivations, and also with institutional features designed around the needs of those other students. As a result they are frequently frustrated by their experiences, lost in a system that isn't suited to them. Jeff explains how university really works, and provides advice on how all students can overcome these internal conflicts to get what they most want from the university experience.

8. The Lucky Ones Our Stories of Adopting Children from China (Large Print 16pt) - Ann Rauhala

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

'What a lucky girl!'' Everybody who has adopted a daughter from China has heard that one. And every parent has said, or thought, in reply: ''No, we're the lucky ones.'' This anthology sets out to explain why people who have adopted children from China feel as though they've won the lottery. Since the late 1980s, as many as 7,000 Chinese - born girls have been adopted annually and now live in the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. They are officially orphans, victims of a rigorous birth control policy limiting most families to one child. These thousands of girls have formed an international Diaspora, a human wave with no exact parallel and yet numerous points of comparison - sharing issues with war orphans from Vietnam or even with Chinese workers who built the New World's railroads. The memoirs collected in The Lucky Ones are organized beginning with infertility, moving to acceptance of a multiracial family, anticipating the adoption, reflecting during the trip to China and, at last, grappling with an odd destiny - turning terrible beginnings into happy endings. The story of these girls is compelling as a narrative of hope and optimism but it may also become a story of dislocation and crisis of identity. These baby immigrants add unusual texture to the lives of the families they join - they come here not by choice but by someone else's design.

9. Gone to Hell True Crimes of America's Clergy (Large Print 16pt) - Randall Radic

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

Theft, extortion, embezzlement, mafia ties, drunk driving and even murder - these are the true stories of priests gone bad.
It's a dark and windy Easter in Toledo, Ohio when Sister Margaret is found murdered in the chapel, the victim of a Satanic ritual. Twenty years later her murderer is revealed to be the parish priest Father Gerald. Monsignor Skehan and Father Guinan embezzled 8.1 million dollars from their affluent Palm Beach, Florida, church, Guinan fleeing to Ireland and leaving Skehan to face the music. Father Fink of Texas crashed his car into a restaurant while driving drunk, injuring ten people. The civil lawsuits that ensued featured innovative - and shady - defense tactics.
Radic dramatically retells these stories and many others, drawing on his personal trials as a pastor convicted of embezzlement, forgery, and fraud.

10. Forgiven (Large Print 16pt) - Vince Russo

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

The mid - 90s marked the beginning of the most exciting and controversial era in the history of pro wrestling. The days of Hulkamania and Saturday morning cartoons were gone - fan interest waned, the on - air product became dated and ratings plummeted. And then, from Long Island, New York, the WW''s billionaire owner Vincent Kennedy McMahon found a most unlikely savior.Ask any wrestling fan about Vince Russo and you're sure to get a heated reaction. Opinion varies, but it's always passionate: the guy's a genius; or he single - handedly ruined the sport. Either way, Russo is perhaps the most enigmatic and influential figure in modern wrestling. What's weird about being ''the most hated man'' in an industry where public ire is money in the bank? Vince Russo wasn't even a wrestler - he just wrote the stuff.A visionary trendsetter, Russo surfed the zeitgeist. Before phrases like ''shock TV'' and ''reality TV'' were ever uttered, Russo brought those revolutions to pro wrestling fans worldwide. Part of the select few responsible for creating the late 90s phenomenon known as ''sports entertainment,'' as lead writer Russo took the WWF's flagship program Monday Night Raw to unimaginable heights, its 8 Nielsen rating market share making it, to this day, the highest rated cable program in television history.Forgiven: One Man's Journey from Self - Glorification to Sanctification is the book that every wrestling fan has been waiting for - for the first time fans will get the true story from the man who was involved with it all. Other books have touched on the successes and tragedies - the double cross that cost Bret Hart his championship and ruined his two decade long father/son relationship with Vince McMahon; the rise to superstardom of ''The Heartbreak Kid'' Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Mick Foley, and The Rock; the tragic accidental death of Owen Har - but none can offer this perspective: Vince Russo was part of it all, writing it all. But Forgiven is not just destined to be another best - selling wrestling book. Here, the most misunderstood man in sports entertainment finally comes clean - with the fans, and more importantly, with himself. A touching and beautifully written memoir, Forgiven offers Russo's life, his work, and his very soul as a modern day parable about the price of success. In heart breaking detail he shows how a ''Godforsaken'' business and the desire for power and acclaim led him, unwittingly, into a spiritual wasteland. As one of TV's most successful writers of the late 90s, there was nothing he wouldn't put before the camera to make wrestling entertainment's hottest commodity. But as he became more and more successful - with million dollar a year salaries being dangled before him - he became despondent. Ultimately, Vince Russo's Forgiven becomes a story of redemption. In the end, it is Russo's faith and family, not his ''role'' in professional wrestling, that bring him true happiness. Finding guidance and forgiveness in God, he becomes more powerful than he ever was helping to guide an entertainment empire.

12. Nine for the Devil A John the Lord Chamberlain Mystery (Large Print 16pt) - Mary Reed

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 27.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The year is 548 and Empress Theodora is dead, the victim of cancer. Or so everyone in Constantinople, capital of the Roman Empire, believes. Everyone except Emperor Justinian who orders John, his Lord Chamberlain, to find the murderer or suffer the consequences. John embarks on an impossible investigation. There is no sign of foul play, but many of the quarreling, backstabbing aristocrats at the imperial court had good reason to want Theodora dead. Suspects include General Artabanes, forced to occupy a house with an unloved wife; Justinian's cousin Germanus, who has seen his career blocked; and Antonina and her husband General Belisarius, enraged by Theodora's attempt to marry their daughter to her grandson by compelling the young couple to live together. Could the exiled and much hated former tax collector John the Cappadocian have played a role? Might Gaius, palace physician, have tampered with Theodora's medication? Pope Vigilius, detained in the capital due to a religious controversy, is not above suspicion. Even John's friends, the lawyer Anatolius and Felix, captain of the place guards, are acting strangely. As if seeking a murderer who seems to be a figment of the emperor's grief - deranged imagination isn't difficult enough, John must also grapple with domestic upheavals. His daughter, living on an estate outside the city, is about to give birth, and his aging servant Peter is dying. Will John be able to serve justice, his loved ones, and the emperor?

13. The Rose in the Wheel A Mystery (Large Print 16pt) - S. K. Rizzolo

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 26.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

This well imagined, carefully detailed, and cleverly plotted debut draws on actual historical events of 1811 London. Regency London knows Constance Tyrone as the conspicuously celibate founder of the St. Catherine Society, dedicated to helping poor women. One wet November evening a carriage mows down Constance outside her office. Curiously, while her corpse's one foot is bare, the other is shod in a clean satin slipper despite the muddy road. Why was a gentlewoman abroad in the night? And if she died under the wheel, whose hands bruised her neck and stole her monogrammed crucifix? Dismissing the idea of an accident, Bow Street Runner John Chase forms an unlikely alliance with Penelope Wolfe, wife of the chief suspect. A young mother paying the price for an imprudent marriage, Penelope is eager to clear her husband Jeremy, a feckless portrait painter whose salacious drawings of the victim suggest an erotic interest. Chase's first task is to learn the identity of the mysterious benefactor who goes bail for Wolfe while Penelope traces the victim's last movements. Barrister Edward Buckler, intrigued, shakes off his habitual lethargy and joins their investigation. As horrifying murders on the Ratcliffe Highway claim all London's attention, the trio discovers that it won't be easy to unravel the enigma of Constance Tyrone, a woman who revives the legend of martyred St. Catherine.

17. Convert From Adam to Christ: In Adam All Will Die, in Christ All Will Be Made Alive (Large Print 16pt) - Emilio Ramos

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

How does God work in the life of a new convert? Emilio Ramos uses Scripture and the writings of Christian leaders to help the reader understand the mysteries of conversion. The book is an excellent preparation for all who are called to be evangelists, pastors, teachers, and church leaders. Convert: Adam to Christ is about what God does in converting people by taking us out of Adam and putting us into Christ. Emilio's friend Ray Comfort writes, ''We are living in an age where many are lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God. An unbiblical form of Christianity is not only accepted but promulgated throughout the contemporary church. . . . So it's refreshing to find men like my friend Emilio Ramos who have a deep and abiding love for the Word of God.'' Here is an excerpt from the book: ''Paul's commitment to biblical truth was so uncompromised that once the gospel was undermined he would not hesitate to defend the truth even at the expense of significant earthly relationships with other apostles. This is what makes Paul's commitment to the truth so penetrating, that he lived out what he said at the opening of the Galatian letter, 'But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!' Paul would stand up for the gospel even at the cost of significant relationships, friendships, and ministry opportunities. Although doing this was not easy or comfortable, it was necessary.'' Emilio Ramos is committed to taking this same stand for the gospel, and his writing gives the reader insight into what conversion to Christ actually entails.
