Becoming A Master Manager: A Competency Framework
Robert E. Quinn
Sue R. Faerman
Becoming a Master Manager
This is one book I believe all managers should read. Talking to several people in the business world, they don't see where they fit in as a manager. Many of them are too much of one thing or not enough of another. After taking a Competing Values Management Practices Survey, then reading this book, and taking the survey again, you can see on the "spider-web graph" where in the circle you fit ...
Disney's the Hunchback of Notre Dame (Golden Look-Look Books)
Western Publishing Company
Earthenware and Crystal
Just a friendly warning: this book does not have a happy ending. It's a heartbreaking, frustrating, deeply upsetting book that will leave you feeling dazed and overwhelmed long after you've finished it. So why read it? Because it's amazing, that's why. "The Hunchback of Notre Dame", also known as "Notre Dame de Paris" in the original French edition, is a story of contrasts. On the one hand, ...

Fabulous for Teachers!
I taught from this book while student teaching in a Gifted English class at a middle school, and through it, watched my students come to a new understanding of Grammar. They were excited about learning how the English language fits together, and they all wanted to know how I learned to teach like that! I give all the credit to The Magic Lens! I bought a copy for my own classroom!

Life and Action: Elementary Structures of Practice and Practical Thought
Harvard University Press
Any sound practical philosophy must be clear on practical concepts?concepts, in particular, of life, action, and practice. This clarity is Michael Thompson?s aim in his ambitious work. In Thompson?s view, failure to comprehend the structures of thought and judgment expressed in these concepts has disfigured modern moral philosophy, rendering it incapable of addressing the larger questions that should be its focus. In three investigations, ...

Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Physical Principles and Sequence Design
E. Mark Haacke
Robert W. Brown
An excellent intro for readers with some math background
This book is a welcome introduction for readers who are comfortable with basic differential equations and vector calculus. As an applied mathematician interested in learning the fundamentals of MRI, I had grown quite frustrated with the simplified literature on one hand ("MRI for technologists", "MRI for medical people", "MRI for dummies"...) and the professional literature on the other, ...
Surface-Launched Acoustic Wave Sensors: Chemical Sensing and Thin-Film Characterization
David C. Stone
With respect to chemical applications, surface-launched acoustic wave sensors were originally developed as sensing devices for specific chemical and biological species, but more recently have been applied to the study of thin film and interfacial properties.

, Michael T. Battista, ...
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
This is one of the best resources I've ever used (not that I've used very many). It's partly scripted, so if you're not real confident about teaching math, this is a big help. This series stresses math concepts instead of math algorithms, so kids learn ideas instead of trying to memorize steps. There are plenty of black-line masters if you're short on materials, connections with other content ...
