A Narrative Compass: Stories that Guide Women's Lives
Each of us has a narrative compass, a story that has guided our lifework. In this extraordinary collection, women scholars from a variety of disciplines identify and examine the stories that have inspired them, haunted them, and shaped their research, from Little House on the Prairie to Little Women, from the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland to Nancy Drew, Mary Jane, and even the Chinese memoir Jottings from the Transcendant's Abode at Mt. Youtai. Telling the "story of her story" leads each of the essayists to insights about her own approach to studying narratives and to a deeper, often surprising, understanding of the power of imagination.Contributors are Deyonne Bryant, Minjie Chen, Cindy L. Christiansen, Beverly Lyon Clark, Karen Coats, Wendy Doniger, Bonnie Glass-Coffin, Betsy Hearne, Joanna Hearne, Ann Hendricks, Rania Huntington, Christine Jenkins, Kimberly Lau, Pamela Riney-Kehrberg, Maria Tatar, Ebony Elizabeth Thomas, Roberta Seelinger Trites, Claudia Quintero Ulloa, and Ofelia Zepeda.

Dive to the Bottom of the World There's a place in the ocean so deep that if Mt Everest sat on the spot, there would still be a mile of water overhead. It's called the Challenger Deep, and lies in the Mariana Trench in the Western Pacific. At 35,000 feet, it is the deepest place on Earth. Detailed maps of the surrounding seafloor show it as a sort of bottomless hole with no details, no topography, very little known. It's an environment as extreme as any on Earth. At present, there is no capability to go to the Challenger Deep, explore it, and discover what's there. But why would anyone want to go there in the first place? Because, deep in the dark, lie clues to some of our most basic and pressing questions - how does the Earth work, and how did life arise on it? To go after the answers, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) has assembled a team of its most experienced and capable scientists and engineers to do the best work of their careers, and make ready to dive to this deepest place in the world. Beginning now and through 2006, the team will plan a mission to the Challenger Deep, then design and build a one-of-a-kind deepest diving vehicle - a Hybrid Remotely Operated Vehicle - to execute it. "Hybrid" because the HROV will operate in two modes. In mode one, it will b...

Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win (New Edition)
An updated edition of the blockbuster bestselling leadership book that took America and the world by storm, two U.S. Navy SEAL officers who led the most highly decorated special operations unit of the Iraq War demonstrate how to apply powerful leadership principles from the battlefield to business and life. Now with an excerpt from the authors' new book, THE DICHOTOMY OF LEADERSHIP. Combat, the most intense and dynamic environment imaginable, teaches the toughest leadership lessons, with absolutely everything at stake. Jocko Willink and Leif Babin learned this reality first-hand on the most violent and dangerous battlefield in Iraq. As leaders of SEAL Team Three’s Task Unit Bruiser, their mission was one many thought impossible: help U.S. forces secure Ramadi, a violent, insurgent-held city deemed “all but lost.” In gripping, firsthand accounts of heroism, tragic loss, and hard-won victories, they learned that leadership―at every level―is the most important factor in whether a team succeeds or fails. Willink and Babin returned home from deployment and instituted SEAL leadership training to pass on their harsh lessons learned in combat to help forge the next generation of SEAL leaders. After leaving the SEAL Teams, they launched a company, Echelon Front, to teach those s...
