Healing into Possibility: The Transformational Lessons of a Stroke
Alison Bonds Shapiro
HJ Kramer/New World Library
A guide to surviving any challenge in life!
I have never had a stroke and I hope I never do, but at 58, I know from the past that more challenges await. Alison's book "Healing into Possibility" will be one of my handbooks at the ready when they come. I read the book in 2 sittings because, like a good suspense novel, I couldn't wait to see how she got out of the current predicament she was in. The profound lesson that Alison reminds us of ...
Problems as Possibilities: Problem-Based Learning for K-16 Education (2nd Edition)
Association for Supervision & Curriculum Deve
Great Concept - poor follow through
The idea that this book is based upon is a great one - this gives the theoretical idea. Unfortunately it gives almost no assistance on implementation. It is not very useful. It would be more useful if it had more examples with information on: how much time should be expected to accomplish/solve the "problem". In my opinion (as a science teacher for 11 years) this is often done in a very ...
From Disability to Possibility: The Power of Inclusive Classrooms
Useful tool for teachers and occupational therapists
My friend Bev gave this book to her daughter, a Special Ed teacher who teaches 6th grade middle school. She is going to use it for her classroom to increase inclusive education opportunities. She has already incorporated some of the strategies and it has been a useful tool in evaluations. My daughter Tracy is an occupational therapist who works with many children including those with ...
To Change the World: The Irony, Tragedy, and Possibility of Christianity in the Late Modern World
James Davison Hunter
Oxford University Press, USA
Buying the book because of the review...
Hunter was interviewed about this book by Christopher Benson in Christianity Today, May 2010, pp.33-36. The quote that sold me on buying the book was at the end of the interview: "Christians need to abandon talk about 'redeeming the culture', 'advancing the kingdom', and 'changing the world'. Such talk carries too much weight, implying conquest and domination. If there is a possibility for ...

The Possibility of Everything
OK, it's not a Christian book - but it is Spiritual
I typically read Christian books - books that fit my beliefs about GOD (according to the WORD of God - the Bible). But this book really intrigued me. It wasn't "new agey" or anything, but very real and innocent. Almost like a beginners book of faith. The author is an excellent writer - that's the good part of the book. But it would really soar if it had some deeper understanding of the miracles ...
The Realm of Possibility
Knopf Books for Young Readers
You Are Happy Even If You Are Afraid To Admit It - secret to all good YA books?
Though this book drags in a few of the poems, it's mostly very readable, as free-verse poetry tends to be if you read it quickly. Sexuality and sentimentality - or, if you like, adolescent angst - are heavily featured, but Levithan is so good at rendering them that the book hardly ever feels trite or emotionally abusive. However, the standout entry is clearly "The Patron Saint of Stoners," ...

A Guide to Possibility Land: Fifty-One Methods for Doing Brief, Respectful Therapy
W. W. Norton & Company
A vade mecum for creating possibilities
I gave 4 stars in an earlier review which was lost in the transfer. After re-reading the book, I like it even more. This is not a book that some people will take to right away. It is more like notes or hand-out on 51 therapeutic techniques. The line drawings of animals by Sandy Beadle have nothing to do with the content. The authors admit that this is a "weird collaboration". When you look ...
Paul Graham: A Shimmer of Possibility
An absolutely stunning achievement
In my experience there are two types of people who are drawn to photography. One group focuses on the experience of the individual image. The other group, focuses less on the individual image and more on the overall impact -- either the ability of the photographer to create a consistent style that runs through the images or the way that the images are sequenced. In very rare cases, like Robert ...
Conversation, Language, And Possibilities: A Postmodern Approach To Therapy
Provokes energy about the postmodern era for therapists!
The book presents a good description of the paradigm shift in the mental health therapy field from the era of family therapy to the postmodern period. The author, as always, does justice to the value of being curious and suspending judgement. She makes it clear about the power of being tenative and listening respectfully. I enjoyed the book.

According to Storm Steele's evil step-mother Verity Poole he is "an impossible child" and he is then forced to attend School of Possibilities--a school for kids that had been having trouble in their education. As Storm tries to rebel against the school's strict policies, they punish him by forcing him to date the headmaster's daughter and other crazy and unfair methods. Then, as time went on, ...
The Possibility of Fireflies
Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing
Read it in one night, it was so good.
I loved the storyline, partially because I knew a girl like Ellie, but mostly because it's just such an easy situation to fall into and empathize with. It's real and relate-able. Easily one of my favorite books.
The Possibility of an Island (Vintage International)
if you want the truth youll get it
Its not optimistic, or happy book. But its showing what its like to be a human. And we all know that's not an easy task. Some would say the book is about sax and sex only, but I strongly disagree. Author is showing all aspects of the life using sex as a tool, a weapon. Through it he shows love, desperation, fears. If you wanna see that you're not alone in your dark thoughts you should read this ...
The Price of Everything: A Parable of Possibility and Prosperity
Princeton University Press
Ramon, a Stanford University student, is outraged to find out that a nearby mega-store hiked prices the night of a disaster and he plans to take action against the price-gouging retailer. Most of us in Ramon's situation would be equally outraged, but we should stop and reconsider. There is more to the price hike than meets the eye. Ramon is forced to reconsider everything he thought he knew ...
The Future of Educational Entrepreneurship: Possibilities for School Reform
Edited by Frederick M. Hess
Harvard Education Press
Stuck on the supply side
Hess is a perceptive observer of what he sees. Unfortunately, his observations and insights correlate only to the narrow world of for-profit charters and ed. services ventures. He gets it right on why schools and districts are hard to work with and hard to improve. However, his contributing commentators and his own examples and ideas are drawn from the small group of folks who think that economic ...

We enthusiastically recommend it to anyone who wants to grow and to remain excited about the future!
