Second Thoughts from the Author: Cara Bertrand. The continuing adventures of an ordinary teenage girl with extraordinary mental abilities, perfect for readers who love books and series such as Vampire Academy, Spellbound, and Sweet Peril Secrets, lies, and looming deaths—all things Lainey Young deals with in a typical day of high school. In her senior year at Northbrook Academy—a New England boarding school where the majority of the students and nearly all the staff are members of the Sententia, a hidden society of the psychically gifted—Lainey has even more to worry about. Things like classes, college, her boyfriend, and, of course, the vision she glimpsed of her impending death. But to her surprise, Lainey finds one worry she can cross off her list, namely Senator Daniel Astor, the leader of the Sententia. After a shocking discovery when they finally meet, Lainey realizes maybe she was wrong to distrust the Senator. She relaxes even further when he seems to accept her refusal to work for him after graduation. But with her secrets mounting and the time to solve them running out, there's a final enigma Lainey hasn't yet encountered: Daniel Astor doesn't take no for an answer. Ever.

Second Thoughts from the Author: Janet M. Ruane. Co-authored by Karen A. Cerulo, the Eastern Sociological Society’s Robin L. Williams Lecturer for 2013-2014 Do birds of a feather flock together or do opposites attract? Is honesty the best policy? Are children our most precious commodity? Is education the great equalizer? Adages like these shape our social life. This Sixth Edition of Second Thoughts reviews several popular beliefs and notes how these conventional wisdoms cannot be taken at face value, but instead require careful second thoughts. This unique text encourages students to step back and sharpen their analytic focus with 25 essays that use social research to expose the gray areas of commonly held beliefs, revealing the complexity of social reality and sharpening students’ sociological vision.

Second Thoughts from the Author: David Galef. How does our perspective change after the first reading? What distortions emerge through repetition? How do we determine what's worth rereading, and what is the role of such repetition in our lives? What are the gains and losses? Second Thoughts answers these questions and investigates the phenomenon of rereading narrative texts from various genres. Contributors of this volume explore rereading children's literature, rereading Proust, how rereading functions in the oral tradition, and why so many people reread romances. Essays range from rereading Shakespeare and Spenser to rereading on a desert island and the rereading of hypertext.

Second Thoughts from the Author: Wilfred R. Bion. Second Thoughts is a collection of papers on Schizophrenia, Linking and Thinking, and his commentary upon them in the light of later work. Originally composed between 1950 and 1962, it derives its title from the lengthy critical commentary which Bion attached to these case histories in the year of publication, 1967, and represents the evolutionary change of position marked in his three previous books and brought to further refinement in the present work.

Second Thoughts from the Author: Donald N. Mccloskey. For this important new volume, Donald N. McCloskey has assembled twenty-four essays by leading economic historians who argue that commonly accepted perceptions of our economic past can be wrong and, therefore, misleading. The essays reevaluate various issues and events that influence today's economic thinking, thus examining the past as a way of preparing for the future. Such notable contributors as Robert Higgs, Julian and Rita Simon, Elyce Rotella, Terry Anderson, Barry Eichengreen, Price Fishback, Susan Phillips, and J. Richard Zecher address a wide range of issues, including the Teapot Dome scandal, banking regulation, "new" immigration problems, AT&T and deregulation, Third World development policies, the role of "big" government, technological innovation, and property rights. Specially written for this collection in clear, nontechnical prose, the essays that comprise Second Thoughts fully explore the role of government policy in the outcome of events. This book is an essential reference for all who are interested in how our economic past and the way we interpret it determine the directions we will choose for our future.

Second Thoughts from the Author: Niklas Asker. "Niklas Asker's debut hits just the right notes of longing, passion and tender reflection about those other lives and other loves that might have been. Like that special, meaningful album track or rock video, Second Thoughts will win your heart." -- Paul Gravett, author of Graphic Novels: Stories To Change Your Life "Niklas Asker is a young artist whose work puts him right in the center of the new transnational comics culture. His comics combine the best traits of European bandes dessin_es and American graphic novels, with a bit of Asian manga thrown in for good measure."-- Fredrik Str_mberg, author of Swedish Comics History and The Comics Go to Hell Jess is a novelist without a novel. John is a photographer running away to New York. Though it lasts only a moment, their brief encounter in London's Stansted Airport will transform both of their lives. How do you measure the distance between satisfaction and settling? At what point does wishful thinking take on a life of its own? ... In SECOND THOUGHTS, the clean, emotional ink-work of Swedish newcomer Niklas Asker guides two characters, in two worlds, through modern city life and love. Reality and fiction overlap in this haunting, deceptive, and inspiring graphic novel about the lives we imagine for ourselves, the lives we imagine for others, and the lives we ultimately must live.
