Against the Gates of Hell
Author: Mylow Young
Genre: Religious - Inspirational

DESCRIPTION: He had always looked down on those who partook and pedaled drugs which claimed the lives of many in the streets.  Now Kerby Wilson finds himself duped by his own pride and going down a very desperate path of his own.  Distraught over the death of his parents and,  the murder of a fellow police officer, Kerby alienates those closest to him, pushing them away-his wife, brother, police force buddies and old friends. As the bottom falls out of his life and darkness consumes his soul, he sells all that he holds dear for an elusive state of peace. Herby, Kerby's identical twin brother is angry with Kerby for turning on his family, friends, and the police force and for going down this destructive path. As his heart hardens and he is caught up in his own battle of resentment and bitterness, he tries to shut Kerby out. But Rene, his God-fearing wife won't allow that to happen. Instead she continually appeals to his conscience, reminding him of God's unfailing love and Kerby's need for his help. When Kerby uses his past identity as a police officer to rob the biggest drug dealer in Philly, a price is put on his head. Learning of Kerby's latest antics, Herby, family and friends are challenged to push past their struggles to help keep him alive and break free of his addiction. This hope-filled story reveal the internal and external struggles of two men who find themselves in need of God's grace, love and forgiveness as they fight for their lives against the very gates of hell.


Six Rules for Brand Revitalization: Learn How Companies Like McDonald's Can Re-Energize Their Brands
Author: Larry Light
Genre: Business - Consumer Behavior

DESCRIPTION: At the turn of the millennium, McDonald's faced a host of serious problems: a decline in food quality, branding issues, indifferent employees, shoddy service and a poor bottom line. The global brand consulting company Arcature LLC was brought in to develop a global brand direction, and Light (global chief marketing officer of McDonald's during those years)-with others-resuscitated the brand. Though the authors offer a few rushed suggestions for executives trying to recover their failing brands, or to avert the crisis in the first place, the book is essentially a hosanna to Light's corporate messianic abilities. The titular six rules-refocus the organization, restore brand relevance, reinvent the brand experience, reinforce a results culture, rebuild brand trust and realize global alignment-are addressed, but sketchily, and without much direction for how they can be applied to companies that are not lucky enough to be the world's most successful fast-food chain. Though the book offers small nuggets of useful advice, it suffers from its self-congratulatory tone, anecdotal filler and dry writing.

The Logic of Chance: The Nature and Origin of Biological Evolution (FT Press Science)
Author: Eugene V. Koonin
Genre: Science - Evolution

DESCRIPTION: The Logic of Chance offers a reappraisal and a new synthesis of theories, concepts, and hypotheses on the key aspects of the evolution of life on earth in light of comparative genomics and systems biology. The author presents many specific examples from systems and comparative genomic analysis to begin to build a new, much more detailed, complex, and realistic picture of evolution. The book examines a broad range of topics in evolutionary biology including the inadequacy of natural selection and adaptation as the only or even the main mode of evolution; the key role of horizontal gene transfer in evolution and the consequent overhaul of the Tree of Life concept; the central, underappreciated evolutionary importance of viruses; the origin of eukaryotes as a result of endosymbiosis; the concomitant origin of cells and viruses on the primordial earth; universal dependences between genomic and molecular-phenomic variables; and the evolving landscape of constraints that shape the evolution of genomes and molecular phenomes.


Do the Right Thing
Author: James F. Parker
Genre: Business - Leadership

DESCRIPTION: People matter most. You know that. But most companies would rather slash costs, cut headcount, replace well-paid employees with lower-paid employees or outsourced workers, and reduce customer service. No wonder so many fail-while others focused on doing the right thing remain profitable and growth oriented for decades. James F. Parker shows why "doing the right thing" isn't just naïve "feel-goodism:" it's the most powerful rule for business success. Parker's stories won't just convince you: They'll move you. Naïve? No way. In this book, Southwest Airlines' former CEO proves why doing what's right is the #1 rule of business success. James F. Parker tells how after 9/11, Southwest made three pivotal decisions: no layoffs, no pay cuts, and no-hassle refunds for any customer wanting them. The result: Southwest remained profitable and its revenue passenger miles for 4Q01 held steady while the rest of its industry nearly collapsed...and Southwest's market cap soon exceeded all its major competitors combined. These pivotal decisions grew naturally from Southwest's culture of mutual respect and trust. Parker offers deeply personal insights into that culture, revealing how those same principles are used by other people and organizations, showing you that it's really not that hard to Do The Right Thing!

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.
