Secrets Of A Strong Mind from the Author: LaRae Quy. Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you needed to be stronger willed? Do you want to find better ways to overcome the obstacles in your life? If the answer is yes to either of these questions, this is the book for you. We will all face adversity of different kinds this year, and the way in which we embrace it will determine the direction that life takes us. The plans we have for life frequently are derailed with hardships and disappointments. Now, with Secrets of A Strong Mind, we can learn how to embrace challenges and empower the leader in us. Secrets of A Strong Mind reveals the six core components needed to move through barriers so we can lead our life from a place of personal strength. LaRae Quy spent over twenty years working as an FBI undercover and counterintelligence agent. Her job was to identify foreign spies who were operating in the United States, find out what they were stealing, stop them, assess whether they possessed the type of information the U.S. needed, and if they did, find ways to persuade them to work for our government. LaRae shares the skills she needed to survive as an undercover agent. Although we may never need to talk ourselves out of a desperate situation with criminals or spies, getting people to trust us is important in business and personal life. She reveals how the same tools she used in the world of spying and counterintelligence to survive in environments of hostility, deception, and fear can help us navigate through the confusion and duplicity we find in relationships, investments, and business. Secrets of A Strong Mind shows how we can view failure and obstacles as opportunities to earn new problem-solving skills . With real-life stories, practical exercises, and inspiring tactics, Secrets of A Strong Mind teaches the skills needed to take full advantage of life. LaRae provides the tools for excavating the significance of our own stories and memories to help us uncover the unknown about ourselves. The learning process will not fatigue us; instead, it will invigorate us. It will lead to new strengths. Secrets of A Strong Mind will empower the leader in you to live with the mental toughness needed to overcome life’s obstacles and achieve your goals. It is an ideal book for discussion groups, church groups, and corporate off-sites.

Wedge from the Author: Mark Riebling. Prophetic when first published, even more relevant now, Wedge is the classic, definitive story of the secret war America has waged against itself. Based on scores of interviews with former spies and thousands of declassified documents, Wedge reveals and re-creates -- battle by battle, bungle by bungle -- the epic clash that has made America uniquely vulnerable to its enemies. For more than six decades, the opposed and overlapping missions of the FBI and CIA -- and the rival personalities of cops and spies -- have caused fistfights and turf tangles, breakdowns and cover-ups, public scandals and tragic deaths. A grand panorama of dramatic episodes, peopled by picaresque secret agents from Ian Fleming to Oliver North, Wedge is both a journey and a warning. From Pearl Harbor, McCarthyism, and the plots to kill Castro through the JFK assassination, Watergate, and Iran Contra down to the Aldrich Ames affair, Robert Hanssen's treachery, and the hunt for Al Qaeda -- Wedge shows the price America has paid for its failure to resolve the conflict between law enforcement and intelligence. Gripping and authoritative -- and updated with an important new epilogue, carrying the action through to September 11, 2001 -- Wedge is the only book about the schism that has informed nearly every major blunder in American espionage.

Plain Secrets from the Author: Joe Mackall. Joe Mackall has lived surrounded by the Swartzentruber Amish community of Ashland County, Ohio, for over sixteen years. They are the most traditional and insular of all the Amish sects: the Swartzentrubers live without gas, electricity, or indoor plumbing; without lights on their buggies or cushioned chairs in their homes; and without rumspringa, the recently popularized "running-around time" that some Amish sects allow their sixteen-year-olds. Over the years, Mackall has developed a steady relationship with the Shetler family (Samuel and Mary, their nine children, and their extended family). Plain Secrets tells the Shetlers' story over these years, using their lives to paint a portrait of Swartzentruber Amish life and mores. During this time, Samuel's nephew Jonas finally rejects the strictures of the Amish way of life for good, after two failed attempts to leave, and his bright young daughter reaches the end of school for Amish children: the eighth grade. But Plain Secrets is also the story of the unusual friendship between Samuel and Joe. Samuel is quietly bemused—and, one suspects, secretly delighted—at Joe's ignorance of crops and planting, carpentry and cattle. He knows Joe is planning to write a book about the family, and yet he allows him a glimpse of the tensions inside this intensely private community. These and other stories from the life of the family reveal the larger questions posed by the Amish way of life. If the continued existence of the Amish in the midst of modern society asks us to consider the appeal of traditional, highly restrictive, and gendered religious communities, it also asks how we romanticize or condemn these communities—and why. Mackall's attempt to parse these questions—to write as honestly as possible about what he has seen of Amish life—tests his relationship with Samuel and reveals the limits of a friendship between "English" and Amish.
