Author: Benjamin L. Castleman
Each year, many students with affordable college options and the academic skills needed to succeed do not enroll at all, enroll at institutions where they are not well-positioned for success, or drop out of college before earning a credential. Efforts to address these challenges have included changes in financial aid policy, increased availability of information, and enhanced academic support. This volume argues that the efficacy of these strategies can be improved by taking account of contemporary research on how students make choices. In Decision Making for Student Success, scholars from the fields of behavioral economics, education, and public policy explore contemporary research on decision-making and highlight behavioral insights that can improve postsecondary access and success. This exciting volume will provide scholars, researchers, and higher education administrators with valuable perspectives and low-cost strategies that they can employ to improve outcomes for underserved populations.

This book is a collection of my favorite essays about money-related topics. It will give you a new perspective on profit and prosperity. Perhaps it will encourage you to work harder and make more money. Or maybe it will do the opposite. Either way, the book reflects my experiences in the consulting world and is the first book in my “Beyond Success” series, providing information about different facets of success and money. However, the book is about more than money. It covers productivity, organizational waste, customer relationships, staff motivation, and more, and how all these elements combine in making money. This book may not change your life, but it will make you think about money in ways you probably never thought of before. If you’re a business owner, this book of ideas that never grow old will help you think about ways to revitalize your business for more profit. If you’re not a business owner, this book will help you consider how and where you spend your money and whether your spending should change. Considerations in Making Money provides insights that can help you create an extraordinary approach to money. “High praise for Mary’s first book. Her writing is clear, direct, and informative, with just the right touch of playfulness to make even the hardened reader smile.

A disliked man does not go very far. He generally leaves the neighborhood. Now and then, a genius, like Galileo or Whistler, may walk on a lonely path from choice, or from the compulsion of the creative spirit within him; but few of us need to follow such examples. -from "Think More of People and Less of Things" Do your job a little better than expected. Learn all you can from those above you. Waste no time on little things. Back yourself to win. The business advice in this handy little book, first published in 1926, are the bricks that build solid foundations for success, but they're ones that far too many who strive for success forget along the way. Casson, a business journalist, knows wherefrom he speaks: he met and interviewed many of the biggest successes of the early 20th century, and the knowledge and wisdom he gleaned from those meetings is still pertinent today. Also available from Cosimo Classics: Casson's Creative Thinkers. Canadian journalist HERBERT NEWTON CASSON (1869-1951) contributed to numerous New York and London publications, writing mostly about business and technology. He is also the author of The Romance of Steel: The Story of a Thousand Millionaires (1907) and The History of the Telephone (1910).

Flour + Water + Yeast + Science = Successfully Delicious Sourdough The transformation of a few ingredients into a crackling-crusted sourdough is nothing short of miraculous. Complex and fascinating chemical and biological processes are taking place in your mixing bowl and oven, thanks to wild yeast and bacteria, and the natural sugars, enzymes, and proteins found in flour. However, baking a great loaf of sourdough does not have to be complicated or overwhelming. Understanding the science behind these processes makes all the difference. In Sourdough by Science, molecular biologist Karyn Newman provides a reliable path to sourdough success by arming you with informative descriptions of what’s happening on a molecular scale and a strategy for learning from and optimizing your own bakes. Recipes are delectable, doable, and dependable—from a Rustic Boule to Wild Challah to Hazelnut Buns— teaching you the hows and whys of bread making along the way. Sourdough by Science has the answers to an array of sourdough questions: What is a sourdough starter? How do different flours respond? When should you add salt to a dough? How does the crust get crisp and crackly? The book makes it easy for readers to develop sourdough intuition with an invaluable and wide-ranging troubleshooting guide. Complete with resources and step-by-step photos, this is an essential book to build your bread-baking expertise.

What is a successful marriage? How do you get to a successful marriage? What's the role of the wife in ensuring a successful marriage? These questions are, among others, current and recurring questions to which Z.T. Fomum provides answers, based on the Word of God and on his long experience in marriage. Since it was sin that disturbed the first union between Adam and Eve, you should know that the health of a marriage depends on the place that God occupies in that marriage, from the very beginning. It also depends on the wife’s ability to take on the character of Christ, so as to restore the sovereignty of God in the union where man is honoured as the earthly husband. The wife can therefore orchestrate a happy marriage, provided that her heart is free from all forms of idols. Filled with the Holy Spirit, the woman subject to God will be the anchor of a successful marriage on earth. Women are not asked to submit because they are secondary beings. No! They submit because that's their responsibility, and God says so. That's what stabilises the marriage and propels it to success. This book is simply good and true. It is recommended to everyone before and after the marriage celebration.
