If Cyd Charisse knows one thing, it's that Shrimp is her true love. Shrimp, the hottest pint-size surfer-artist in San Francisco. That boy (as her mother called him), who was the primary cause of Cyd being grounded to Alcatraz, formerly known as her room. The boy who dumped Cyd before she left home to spend the summer in New York City. Now it's the start of senior year. Cyd has changed, but maybe Shrimp has changed too -- and maybe Cyd and Shrimp will need to get to know each other all over again to figure out if it's for real. Can Cyd get back together with Shrimp and keep the peace with her mom? And can she get a life outside of her all-encompassing boy radar? This sequel to Gingerbread has all the sharp humor and searing attitude of the original, which ELLEgirl praised as "not just Another Teen Novel" and Teen People called "unforgettable." In Shrimp, Cyd might be a little older and a little wiser, but she's still the same irrepressible free spirit determined to find her own way in the world, on her own terms.

The Serving Leader Five Powerful Actions to Transform Your Team, Business, and Community, 10th Anniversary Edition, Revised and Expanded It's people who make organizations great, so how can leaders best help their people achieve that greatness? As Ken Jennings and John Stahl-Wert show in this new edition of their bestseller, you can't just demand greatness—you have to inspire it. The most effective leaders don't just stand in front of their people, they stand behind them too. As one of the characters in the book notes, “You qualify to be first by putting other people first.” This concept sounds paradoxical, but it leads to extraordinary outcomes—and The Serving Leader shows precisely how and why. While Jennings and Stahl-Wert use a compelling fictional story to outline the basics of Serving Leadership, all the characters in it are based on real people, the organizations depicted are based on real organizations—and the results they achieved are what really happened. This edition features a new foreword by Ken Blanchard, a new introduction, and a new chapter checking back in with Mike, the main character, to see what he has learned in the twelve years since he embraced Serving Leadership On one level this is the most practical guide available to implementing Serving Leadership; on a deeper level, it is a book about the personal journey of growth that real leadership requires. Great organizations are great because they're filled with people who freely choose to do their very best. It's a maddeningly simple concept yet stunningly hard to execute. Jennings and Stahl-Wert show leaders how to earn that kind of commitment.

The Irish have always been an important part of San Francisco. An 1852 census showed that almost nine percent of the city of 36,000 hailed from Ireland; by 1900, nearly a quarter of the population had come here from the Emerald Isle. Today a walk through any part of the city will showcase influential Irish street names such as Downey, Fell, Kearney, O'Farrell, O'Shaughnessy, and McAllister. Churches such as St. Brigid's and St. Patrick's still are supported by many of the faithful, while landmark buildings such as the Fairmont, Phelan, and Flood stand sentinel over the city's bustling downtown. Many businesspeople handle their finances through the successors of the original Hibernia Bank, established here by Irish immigrants in 1859. And after work, many folks like to relax with a pint at pubs such as Kate O'Brien's, Abbey Tavern, or the Little Shamrock.

Overcoming Depression - One Christian's Perspective is a personal testimony that details a depressive episode in my life that spanned 2= years. There were a number of factors that led to this depressive episode in my life. I could not eat, I cried a lot, and I felt worse than sad. There were some days I could not get out of bed, and I began to have thoughts of suicide. Nevertheless, I would not let the emotional despair of depression take hold of my life without taking a stand; so, I purposed in my heart to take this journey to overcome depression leaning and depending on the everlasting arms of Jesus Christ. This particular time in my life was an emotional roller coaster I had never ridden before. So, as I tell my testimony of overcoming depression and how God delivered me from going down into the emotional pit of depression, it is my prayer that you would also purpose in your heart to overcome because greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world (Jn. 4:4).

In addition to the 12th edition, the authors now offer a Concise Version. Continuing the tradition that has made Morgan, Rotunda, and Dzienkowski's Problems & Materials on Professional Responsibility a leader in its field, this concise version of the casebook uses problems to provide an overview of lawyers' professional responsibility. This condensed edition covers these topics in an abbreviated format. The concise coursebook is based on the 12th edition of Problems & Materials on Professional Responsibility, which has been the most widely-used Professional Responsibility coursebook and the leader in its field since its first edition in 1976, over 35 years ago. It is designed for 2 hour classes and for seminars in legal ethics. As the law has evolved, so has the 12th edition. Yet, some schools and professors would like to offer a shorter course than the 12th edition anticipates. This abridged edition fits the bill. The authors have carefully designed it to be familiar to long time users, and accessible to new adopters. It focuses on the major issues of law governing the practice of law and the law of judicial disqualification, while shortening the volume of material and focusing on only the most essential topics. It continues its tradition of offering the most usable and up-to-date course materials to teach legal ethics and the law governing the practice of law. Students using this book will learn what they need to pass the state bar exam on Professional Responsibility yet also be introduced to the larger topics that the 12th edition covers more thoroughly. A comprehensive teacher's manual is available as well.
