From the creator of the popular website Ask a Manager and New York’s work-advice columnist comes a witty, practical guide to 200 difficult professional conversations—featuring all-new advice! There’s a reason Alison Green has been called “the Dear Abby of the work world.” Ten years as a workplace-advice columnist have taught her that people avoid awkward conversations in the office because they simply don’t know what to say. Thankfully, Green does—and in this incredibly helpful book, she tackles the tough discussions you may need to have during your career. You’ll learn what to say when • coworkers push their work on you—then take credit for it • you accidentally trash-talk someone in an email then hit “reply all” • you’re being micromanaged—or not being managed at all • you catch a colleague in a lie • your boss seems unhappy with your work • your cubemate’s loud speakerphone is making you homicidal • you got drunk at the holiday party Praise for Ask a Manager “A must-read for anyone who works . . . [Alison Green’s] advice boils down to the idea that you should be professional (even when others are not) and that communicating in a straightforward manner with candor and kindness will get you far, no matter where you work.”—Booklist (starred review) “The author’s friendly, warm, no-nonsense writing is a pleasure to read, and her advice can be widely applied to relationships in all areas of readers’ lives. Ideal for anyone new to the job market or new to management, or anyone hoping to improve their work experience.”—Library Journal (starred review) “I am a huge fan of Alison Green’s Ask a Manager column. This book is even better. It teaches us how to deal with many of the most vexing big and little problems in our workplaces—and to do so with grace, confidence, and a sense of humor.”—Robert Sutton, Stanford professor and author of The No Asshole Rule and The Asshole Survival Guide “Ask a Manager is the ultimate playbook for navigating the traditional workforce in a diplomatic but firm way.”—Erin Lowry, author of Broke Millennial: Stop Scraping By and Get Your Financial Life Together

The poetry of Jody Cooke while greatly varied and at times seemingly unfocused in theme is a wonderful read and filled with rich emotional commentary. From man's base desires and carnal hunger to the more brutal aspects of rage, obsession, and the need for violence. Mr. Cooke takes a deep look into man's heart and pulls out the things we all try so desperately to hide. In other works he explores more romantic themes such as love, family, and the untamed wilds of our deepest imagination. Contained within this book are many such pieces. A body of work that is the result of a lifetime of creation. Here is a brief examination of a few of my favorites.

How I wish marriage could offer insurance for love! We marry for companionship, to spend our life with another person in the best possible manner. As time progresses, marriage like any other relationship passes through different phases of life. Relatives, friends, finance and children have a significant impact on marriage and test the bond between a husband and wife. Situations threaten to derail the heart and mind that has forgotten to ‘love,’ the essence of any marriage and the strength that holds two hearts together to overcome any challenge. But once ‘love’ is lost from a relationship, the strength to live life is lost. The heart and mind start sailing in a stormy sea of emotions, looking for something or someone to hold the heart steady and calm the turbulence in the mind. The Love Baby is a story of a loving heart that has lost the love in its life, and so it struggles to survive. It is the story of a woman who puts her everything at stake to find happiness again and undertakes a journey from a loveless married life to a blissful love life.

Stratos Gazis hates being called a hit man. What he is, is a conscientious fixer. He fixes problems that few can fix. Things that people are willing to pay handsomely to get done provided he concludes the targets deserve their fate. The story centers around the blue-eyed orphan Emma, the “baby blue” of the title, a beautiful teenage girl with a talent for card tricks of exceptional sophistication – all the more impressive for her tender years and the blindness that has afflicted her since the age of eight. Emma and her adoptive father, a former investigative journalist, roam the streets of Athens together, earning enough to keep body and soul together by performing Chaplinesque sketches. When the ex-journalist is brutally murdered, Angelino, a well-connected Athenian underworld figure, takes the girl under his wing and retains the services of Stratos to find her father’s killers. Meanwhile, Costas Dragas, a top homicide cop and Gazis’s best friend, has taken on the investigation of a spate of murders of pedophiles, and as usual, has gone to war with the media. It slowly emerges that their cases intersect and that corporate interests, more powerful than they could ever have imagined, lie behind the murders they both need to solve. Through a combination of experience and the ability to read the ailing city, its residents and its streets with consummate skill, the case is solved, but not without some subliminal tutoring from a great classic of the cinema.

Aotearoa is a land of extraordinary queer writers, many of whom have contributed to our rich literary history. But you wouldn't know it.

This landmark book brings together and celebrates queer New Zealand writers from across the gender and LGBTQIA+ spectrum with a generous selection of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and much, much more. From established names to electrifying newcomers, the cacophony of voices brought together in Out Here sing out loud and proud, ensuring that future generations of queers are afforded the space to tell their stories and be themselves without fear of retribution or harm.

“BLUES FROM THE HEART, “For The World To Know”. It speaks about the passion, bond, desire and vulnerability of being in love. Ted say digging through the dark sides of heart and soul takes courage, guts, bravery, nerve and dare. However, once you unearth the heavy blanket of pain and sorrow, slowly but surely the heaviness starts to fade away, then its lightness brings new meaning of hope. Once you break the mirror of the shadow that follows you, then your heart and soul is liberated, rejuvenated, and the freedom gives you wings to escape from the peat of darkness to the sunlight of a new purpose in life. Falling in love it’s easy, but to hold on and fulfill the desires, it is another thing, often leading to heart break, isolation, loneliness, depression or even suicidal.

What happens when you ask God, “What do you want me to do today?” This is not a success story. And it’s not one of those stories that has a beginning, a middle, and then a perfectly tidy hind end either. It’s really just a beginning. For thirty days Kendra Broekhuis prayed “to maintain the joy of being wife and mommy amid the daily grind. To see the world through God’s eyes. To live intentionally. To build relationships and share Christ’s love with our neighbors. To learn what it really means to give. To collide ‘motherhood’ with ‘mission.’” This became her motto, her credo, her personal mission statement. Some days it led to actions the Lord gently nudged her to take. Other days it led to reflections the Lord gently whispered into her heart. Every day it led to a single word, one underlying theme that ties all thirty days – all thirty chapters – and their wide variety of topics together: giving. These thirty days found Kendra and her husband and daughter in a strange time of transition. They had just moved back to the United States after teaching for three years in the beautiful country of Guatemala. They were in a new city, working a new job, living in a new apartment building, in search of a new church. And they wanted to put it all together: all of their experiences, all of the things they had just seen and learned and read and discussed. It wasn’t a clean slate but rather a chance to live intentionally. When Kendra and her husband sought advice about the transition from fellow missionary friends, the advice was, “Get to know your neighbors.” It might sound like strange advice, but it made sense. Jesus tells us to “Love God and love your neighbor.” Many times the word neighbor is meant to be vague, but it shouldn’t always be. Part of being mission-minded, no matter where you live or work, is being willing to love the people closest to you, people we often overlook. Kendra’s neighbors—as in the people who live in the other eleven apartments in her building—are whom she often found the Lord’s generosity overflowing to and from during these thirty days.
