Cognitive Surplus: Creativity and Generosity in a Connected Age
A new framework for understanding social media
"One thing that makes the current age remarkable is that we can now treat free time as a general social asset that can be harnessed for large, communally created projects, rather than as a set of individual minutes to be whiled away one person at a time," according to Clay Shirky in this book. The time which people are no longer spending passively watching television can now become what the ...

Attached at the Heart: 8 Proven Parenting Principles for Raising Connected and Compassionate Children
Invest in your children now, reap the rewards later
When I read Nicholson and Parker's book, Attached at the Heart, I remembered a few incidents from my experience as a parent. When our first was born I had never held a baby and I was 31 years old. My wife had probably held one but she, too, was a novice. (Aren't we all) Living away from relatives we were on our own. I picked up baby and mother at the hospital on a hot June day in a car with ...

University Press of New England
Enthralling rural history.
Lets get this straight, this is NOT a coffee table book - if you want lots of colour pictures of old farms and barns - look elsewhere.

This book is a treasure trove of ideas, inspiration and many many reasons to remember and ACT on "Putting Your Heart" on paper. Klauser is an extremely engaging writer. I found myself smiling in response to what I thought were personal inside jokes like a lyric from "Sound of Silence" being weaved into a paragraph about the impact of the vocalization of a baby upon a group of tired, unengaged ...
