In Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Bennet had this to say about Mr. Darcy: “We all know him to be a proud, unpleasant sort of man...” Miss Elizabeth Bennet, herself, spoke of Mr. Darcy's arrogance, his conceit, and his selfish disdain of the feelings of others—the last man in the world whom she could ever be prevailed on to marry. The gentleman's housekeeper, Mrs. Reynolds, described him as the best landlord and master who ever lived. Such varying accounts as these are exceedingly puzzling, indeed. This amorous, provocative, and at times tumultuous tale, illustrates Mr. Darcy as a wealthy young man of sense and education, as well as considerable worldly experience—not at all uncommon for Regency-era gentlemen of his social standing. He is his own master. He enjoys his lifestyle and has no particular desire to marry at all. That is until he renews his acquaintance with Miss Elizabeth Bennet—her own circumstances greatly diminished pursuant to the sudden and tragic death of her father. Follow Mr. Darcy's journey from a man who, indeed, is proud and haughty, to one who seeks to please a woman worthy of being pleased.

If you do what you love and love what you do, you will never work a day in your life. It’s simple advice, but it proved to be a game changer for Terrence Boyle, who looks back at his unlikely life of going from a high school dropout to a successful IBM systems programmer in this memoir. During his hardscrabble life growing up in Jersey City, New Jersey, he found there was never a shortage of things to do: From sledding, to climbing cliffs, to enjoying Tom Sawyer-like adventures with his friends, there was never a dull moment. In looking back at his life, he pays tribute to all the angels in his life, including his mom, his wives, various friends and employers, and others. He also looks back at a varied career, which included adventures in real estate, rebuilding houses, and working his dream job at IBM. The author quit smoking cigarettes on April 7, 1985. One year later, almost to the day, he lost his son to AIDs. He thought if he could survive the death of his 23-year-old son without smoking again, which he did, he would have beat the habit for life,” Join the author as he looks back at a wonderful life filled with angels who allowed him to have his cake and eat it too!

A book of deep and practical wisdom, and uncommon common sense, by one of the nation's most eminent educators. F. Washington Jarvis was headmaster of Boston's Roxbury Latin School, the oldest school in continuous operation in North America. This book, winner of the 2001 Christopher Award, collects Jarvis's addresses, reprinted from his school's publications. His approach is anecdotal. "If it is true that a picture is worth a thousand words, it is ten times as true when you are speaking to young teenagers. They are gripped by the story of how real people cope with real situations. They are interested when you share with them the concrete realities of your own life and experience, and they are almost always willing to listen to adults who actually believe in something, who actually stand for something." The author never talks down to his audience. He knows that students are asking the deepest questions, questions about whether life has meaning and purpose. He also knows that teenagers often find themselves caught by surprise in situations where they have to make tough decisions. And he believes that they are willing, even eager, to know how others have coped in similar situations.
