Fatherhood 101-without the trial-and-error. David George's father died when he was three months old. As the youngest in his family-and the only boy-he had no male role model. When he married, he had two children-both boys. David, an award-winning advertising copywriter, had to figure everything out for himself, asking: "Did I make the right decision?" "Was I a good or a bad dad?" The result is Good Dad/Bad Dad, a Daddy 101 manual-minus the trial and error. Topics range from baby-proofing your house to setting up a 529 college plan and everything in between. Conversational, boisterous, and sometimes irreverent, it's like getting expert advice from a favorite buddy, with humor and a whole lot of heart.

Philippines, Filipinos, Filipinas, Pinoy, Pinay, Pilipino, Pilipina. Confused? It seems everybody has a name for the inhabitants of the Philippines, including the Pinoys themselves. But don't worry. On the first page of this delightful guide to the etiquette, customs and taboos of more than 7,000 islands that is the Philippines, you'll find the best traveling tip you need to use when among the smiling and talkative people of this tropical paradise. Did we say talkative? That's an understatement! Filipinos are the most bubbly and communicative and therefore caring and friendliest people in Southeast Asia. This former U.S. colony has adopted American vocabulary, accents and lifestyles more than any other country in the region. Filipinos are also the Asian leaders in abbreviations which liberally sprinkle their conversation ("my D.I. is in the C.R."). They are also masters of inventing new words--witty and amusing--for just about everything from food to the foibles and weaknesses of their fellow countrymen. To ensure that you, the foreign resident, fleeting visitor or armchair traveler, enjoy your stay in the Philippines, we present a light hearted but practical guide to the do's and don'ts of this dynamic country. DON'T tell your best friend that he's got food stuck between his teeth. DO slouch in the back of your taxi as you leave the motel after a romantic afternoon. And DON'T throw water over the guy downstairs singing his heart out. He's just serenading his ladylove on the fourth floor. Want to know more? Then DO buy this book!
"Dos & Don'ts of Education Reform" is a unique critical study of legislated reform in the U.S. Resisting the temptation to make facile recommendations for future action, this book takes pointed aim at the failure of education reform. Roselli blames a narrow-minded focus on testing and accountability, advocating instead for an honest, morally-driven construction of theory and practice. He breaks new ground in this close, multidisciplinary examination of curriculum, instruction and assessment by demonstrating how to create the conditions for a successful school experience for all students: a sociocultural view of success and a strong desire to improve the human condition. This book is an excellent accompaniment to courses such as social foundations of education and critical issues in education, as well as those dealing with educational policy and leadership.
With this book, an international group of approximate 50 HR leaders, professors and senior consultants compiled their knowledge and experience in an easy-to-navigate format to allow busy HR executives finding exactly the advice they need. Re-inventing the wheel – unfortunately – still is a common practice in Human Resources Management. Traditional literature on HR fails to provide advice based on current, real-life experience and online forums lack a logical structure. Hence, there is a clear need for a resource with practical, structured and experience-based advice on Human Resources Management. The book also provides readers from other functional areas and job starters a realistic insight into today's HR management – be it as a personal career orientation or as a way to enrich their overall management knowledge.
