The Cat in the Hat introduces beginning readers to maps–the different kinds (city, state, world, topographic, temperature, terrain, etc.); their formats (flat, globe, atlas, puzzle); the tools we use to read them (symbols, scales, grids, compasses); and funny facts about the places they show us (“Michigan looks like a scarf and a mitten! Louisiana looks like a chair you can sit in!”).

Nidali, the rebellious daughter of an Egyptian-Greek mother and a Palestinian father, narrates the story of her childhood in Kuwait, her teenage years in Egypt (to where she and her family fled the 1990 Iraqi invasion), and her family's last flight to Texas. Nidali mixes humor with a sharp, loving portrait of an eccentric middle-class family, and this perspective keeps her buoyant through the hardships she encounters: the humiliation of going through a checkpoint on a visit to her father's home in the West Bank; the fights with her father, who wants her to become a famous professor and stay away from boys; the end of her childhood as Iraq invades Kuwait on her thirteenth birthday; and the scare she gives her family when she runs away from home. Funny, charming, and heartbreaking, A Map of Home is the kind of book Tristram Shandy or Huck Finn would have narrated had they been born Egyptian-Palestinian and female in the 1970s. From the Hardcover edition.

The battle for Saipan is remembered as one of the bloodiest battles fought in the Pacific during World War II, and was a turning point on the road to the defeat of Japan. In this work, the survivors—including Pacific Islanders on whose land the Americans and Japanese fought their war—have the opportunity to tell their stories in their own words. The author offers an introduction to the volume and arranges the oral histories by location—Saipan, Yap and Tinian, Rota, Palau Islands, and Guam—in the first half, and by branch of service in the second half.

In a book poised to become the bible of innovation, a renowned creativity expert reveals the key to the creative process-"borrowing". As a former aerospace scientist, Fortune 500 executive, chief innovation officer, inventor, and software entrepreneur, David Kord Murray has made a living by coming up with innovative ideas. In Borrowing Brilliance he shows readers how new ideas are merely the combination of existing ones by presenting a simple six-step process that anyone can use to build business innovation: ?Defining-Define the problem you're trying to solve. ?Borrowing-Borrow ideas from places with a similar problem. ?Combining-Connect and combine these borrowed ideas. ?Incubating-Allow the combinations to incubate into a solution. ?Judging-Identify the strength and weakness of the solution. ?Enhancing-Eliminate weak points while enhancing strong ones. Each chapter features real-life examples of brilliant borrowers, including profiles of Larry Page and Sergey Brin (the Google guys), George Lucas, Steve Jobs, and other creative thinkers. Murray used these methods to re-create his own career and he shows readers how to harness them to find creative solutions.

In A Trek through Nepal, Max Nadiero captures the essence of a mid-life adventure to the Himalayan Mountains of Nepal. He fills our senses with the colorful descriptions of his fellow travelers, the sherpa guides, and the porters who are hired for a pittance to carry their luggage through jungles, over treacherous mountains, and across raging rivers. His fellow trekkers come from diverse walks of life and are here for various reasons, but most wishing to prove their capabilities and their spirit of adventure. While rather out of shape when he initially begins this journey, he pushes on and becomes increasingly stronger and fitter as the trek progresses. He feels a sense of accomplishment as he moves from dead last in the ranks to the fourth place spot. In the end, there is pride from trying something outside his comfort zone that tested his mettle, his resolve, and his human strength, pushing him to his limits. These are memories he can cherish the rest of his life.

Far across the continent from one another, a young man and woman were simultaneously enjoying a Chinese dinner with close acquaintances. At the end of their meal, as usual, every person at the table was handed a fortune cookie....BUT... The fortune cookie that was handed to each of them was DIFFERENT. From nowhere appeared a short, fat man wearing a colorful gown that fl owed to the fl oor. On his face were huge sunglasses that covered the single eye located in the middle of his forehead. After the two of them read their unusual fortunes, a shocking chain of events were to follow that would instantly force them together and unveil hidden secrets from the past. Together, they found it necessary to take a parlous journey across the storm-ridden United States...and back again revealing hidden mysteries from the past. They not only found love for one another but just what part in their lives the strange little one-eyed may actually played in their fortunes.

The true story of an ordinary woman living an extraordinary existence all over the world. “Gelman doesn’t just observe the cultures she visits, she participates in them, becoming emotionally involved in the people’s lives. This is an amazing travelogue.” —Booklist At the age of forty-eight, on the verge of a divorce, Rita Golden Gelman left an elegant life in L.A. to follow her dream of travelling the world, connecting with people in cultures all over the globe. In 1986, Rita sold her possessions and became a nomad, living in a Zapotec village in Mexico, sleeping with sea lions on the Galapagos Islands, and residing everywhere from thatched huts to regal palaces. She has observed orangutans in the rain forest of Borneo, visited trance healers and dens of black magic, and cooked with women on fires all over the world. Rita’s example encourages us all to dust off our dreams and rediscover the joy, the exuberance, and the hidden spirit that so many of us bury when we become adults.
