Suitable for boys and girls aged 7 to 11 years. Keeping secrets safe can be a burden for a child. Children need to be able to confide in a responsible adult. Help your child understand the impact that keeping secrets can have on all those involved. Billy Field and Ant Turner are asked to keep a secret from Max Turner, Ant's sister, about her upcoming birthday present.

When Billy accidently damages his dad's new car he makes a pact with Ant about keeping it a secret. This puts a burden on them both, and nearly gets Eddy Jost into a lot of trouble. Does Max find out what her surprise birthday present is? Did Eddy get into more trouble? Will Billy own up? How does Ant cope with keeping secrets?

Agile!, 1 Springer, Berlin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Are you attracted by the promises of agile methods but put off by the adoring tone and fanaticism of so many of the agile texts? Would you like to know which agile techniques work, which ones will not matter much, and which ones will actually harm your projects? Then you need Bertrand Meyer s Agile! : the first exhaustive, unbiased review of agile principles, techniques and tools.§Agile methods are clearly one of the most important developments in software over the past decades, but they are a surprising mix of the best and the worst. Until now every project and every developer had to sift by themselves through the ideas and sort out the gems from the gravel. This book, the result of an immersion of several years in the practice of agile development and the agile literature, spares you the pain. It offers both a thorough descriptive presentation of agile techniques and a perceptive, no-nonsense analysis of their benefits and limitations, by one of the top names in software engineering.§The first achievement of Meyer s book is to serve as a primer on agile development : one chapter each introduces agile principles, roles, managerial practices, technical practices and artifacts. This concise yet complete review will enable you to master all the important agile ideas. A separate chapter analyzes the four major agile methods: Extreme Programming, Lean Software, Scrum and Crystal.§The accompanying critical analysis explains what you should retain and discard from agile ideas. It is based on Meyer s thorough knowledge of the methods, principles and literature of software engineering, and his extensive personal experience of programming and project management. He fearlessly calls the agile proponents bluff by debunking the hyped and unsound ideas, and highlights the truly brilliant contributions even those to which their own authors do not do full justice. §Three important chapters precede the core discussion of agile ideas: an extended overview, serving as a concentrate of the entire book; a dissection of the intellectual devices used by agile authors to convey their arguments; and a measured review of the classical software engineering techniques, such as requirements analysis and lifecycle models, which agile methods love to criticize. The final chapters describe the precautions that a company should take during a transition to agile development, and present the overall assessment of agile ideas, with a carefully defined list of the ugly, the hyped, the good and the truly brilliant. §This is the first book to discuss agile methods, beyond the brouhaha, in the general context of modern software engineering. It is a key resource for projects that want to combine the best of established results and agile innovations.§

Fruits of the Cotton Patch, Volume Two Cascade Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In honor of what would have been Clarence Jordan's one hundredth birthday and the seventieth anniversary of Koinonia Farm, the first Clarence Jordan Symposium convened in historic Sumter County, Georgia, in 2012, gathering theologians, historians, actors, and activists in civil rights, housing, agriculture, and fair-trade businesses to celebrate a remarkable individual and his continuing influence. Clarence Jordan (1912-1969), a farmer and New Testament Greek scholar, was the author of the Cotton Patch versions of the New Testament and the founder of Koinonia Farm, a small but influential religious community in southwest Georgia. Fruits of the Cotton Patch,Volume 2 contains Symposium presentations that interpret Jordan's storytelling and the meaning of his prophetic voice in the areas of peacemaking in the context of historical harms, the future of the affordable housing movement, and the direction of the New Monastic movement. These essays and others invite the curious, the student, and the teacher alike to experience the life and work of Clarence Jordan and its powerful connection to the present. In a world filled with so much cynicism and callousness, Clarence Jordan reminds us that 'the life together' can be a more hopeful and compassionate alternative. This book echoes Jordan's call to be a prophetic demonstration plot in a world desperately in need of reconciliation. --Anton Flores-Maisonet, Alterna, Georgia Rarely does a book so artfully include humor, inspiration, creativity, and scholarship. Yet this volume does so in a manner that fittingly reflects the legacy of a man, who had a PhD but was well known for his down-to-earth stories, and who moved comfortably between the worlds of formal podiums and dirt farm fields. Read it to learn more about Clarence Jordan and the Koinonia community! --Brian Kaylor, author of For God's Sake, Shut Up! This collection of essays witnesses to the Jesus-like figure of Clarence Jordan, as the books and letters in the New Testament testify to Jesus as the Christ. The love for and reverence of Clarence, combined with the stories of opposition to his ministry, confirm his Christ-likeness, just as the crucifixion and resurrection confirmed Jesus as the Messiah. --Ronald H. Stone, author of Politics and Faith Both volumes of these books should come with a warning label. For years, Clarence Jordan has been both a gadfly and a mentor for me. These volumes, which consist of presentations delivered at a symposium of which I was privileged to be a part, reawakened in me the challenge to be a prophet of God, not a false prophet of a church, and a disciple of Jesus, not just an admirer. --Billy E. Vaughn, Spencer Baptist Church, North Carolina Clarence Jordan has long been one of my heroes. It is a delight to spend time with people who have incorporated his vision of a lived faith in God into their creative work. As a neighbor of Clarence Jordan's is quoted in Roots as saying of him, 'he gone now, but his footprint still here. This fine book affirms that statement and gives me hope for all of our futures. --Martha Woodroof, author of Small Blessings Clarence Jordan's prophetic and Jesus-centered reading of the Bible is still relevant and can be seen in the voices collected in this book. They give his vision new life, necessary for healing the deep divisions found in humanity today. --Kelli Yoder, Assistant editor/web editor for Mennonite World Review Kirk Lyman-Barner received his Master of Divinity from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. He is Director of U.S. Field Operations for The Fuller Center for Housing and pastor of Praxis Americus United Church of Christ. Cori Lyman-Barne

Excerpt from Brevia: Short Essays and Aphorisms But with our present short period of existence, there is no time for indulging in these luxuries of mischief. There is not greater nonsense talked about anything than about inconsistency. The truth is, no man ever is inconsistent. His utterances are inconsistent; but, did we know all about him, and about the circumstances which he has to encounter, we should not speak of the man as inconsistent. A curious illustration of what I mean may be given in this way. There shall be a father and a son advocating opposite views. The world says, How unlike are these two men; whereas the opposition of their views shows, perhaps, the similarity of their characters: if they agreed now, their ages and their experience of life being so different, it would be a proof of great dissimilarity of character.

Ah, cruel Three! In such an hour, Beneath such dreamy weather, To beg a tale of breath too weak To stir the tiniest feather! Yet what can one poor voice avail Against three tongues together? Imperious Prima flashes forth Her edict 'to begin it': In gender tone Secunda hopes There will be nonsense in it!'

"Gallowglass" is a thrilling crime classic from the bestselling, prize-winning author Barbara Vine. When Sandor snatched little Joe from the path of a London Tube train, he was quick to make clear the terms of the rescue. 'I saved your life,' he told the homeless youngster, 'so your life belongs to me now'. Sandor began to tell him a fairy-tale: an ageing prince, a kidnapped princess chained by one ankle, a missed rendezvous. But what did this mysterious story have to do with Sandor's preparations? Joe had only understood his own role: he was a gallowglass, the servant of a Chief..."On one level this is a novel about kidnapping. On another its concerns are obsession, the destructive nature of romantic illusions, and love. As Ms Vine unfolds it, nothing is quite what it seems". ("Guardian"). Gallowglass is a modern crime masterpiece that will have you gripped from the first page to the last. If you enjoy the novels of P.D. James, Ian Rankin and Scott Turow, you will love this book. Barbara Vine is the pen-name of Ruth Rendell. She has written fifteen novels using this pseudonym, including "A Fatal Inversion" and "King Solomon's Carpet" which both won the Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger Award.

First collected by his devoted family and colleagues as a 75th birthday present, The Unpublished David Ogilvy collects a career's worth of public and private communications - memos, letters, speeches, notes and interviews - from the 'Father of Advertising' and founder of Ogilvy & Mather. Still fizzing with energy and freshness more than 25 years after it was first published, its success outside the private circle of friends and colleagues it was created for was, in the words of one of its editors: 'because so often he spoke out on important matters long before the crowd caught up to him; because all of what he says, he says so well; because so little of what he says in the book had ever before appeared in print'. It includes The Theory and Practice of Selling the AGA Cooker, described by Fortune magazine as 'the finest sales instruction manual ever written', and an interview in which he makes disclosures that even long-standing associates had never heard before. This is a business book unlike any other: a straightforward and incisive look at subjects such as salesmanship, management and creativity, presented in his trademark crisp prose. Whether carefully prepared for a lecture or as a private joke to a friend, his writing always underlines the importance of the rule, 'it pays an agency to be imaginative and unorthodox'.

The Child's Child is the new crime novel by bestselling, prize-winning author Barbara Vine. What sort of betrayal would drive a brother and sister apart? When Grace and her brother Andrew inherit their grandmother's house in Hampstead, they decide to move in together. It seems the obvious thing to do: they've always got on well, the house is large enough to split down the middle, and neither of them likes partying or loud music. There's one thing they've forgotten though: what if one of them wants to bring a lover into the house? When Andrew's partner James moves in, it alters the balance - with almost fatal consequences. Barbara Vine's is the pen-name of Ruth Rendell, and The Child's Child is the first book she has published under that name since The Birthday Present in 2008. It's an intriguing examination of betrayal in families, and of those two once-unmentionable subjects, illegitimacy and homosexuality. A taut, thrilling read, it will be enjoyed by readers of P.D. James and Ian Rankin. "Cracking stuff. The Vine continues to flourish...(A) miracle of storytelling with her customary aplomb and cool composure". (Express on The Child's Child). "The Rendell/Vine partnership has for years been producing consistently better work than most Booker winners put together". (Ian Rankin). Ruth rendall has published fourteen novels under the Vine name, two of which, Fatal Inversion and King Solomon's Carpet, won the prestigious Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger Award. Also available in Penguin by Barbara Vine: The Minotaur, The Blood Doctor, Grasshopper, The Chimney Sweeper's Boy, The Brimstone Wedding, No Night is Too Long, Asta's Book, King Solomon's Carpet, Gallowglass, The House of Stairs, A Dark-Adapted Eye.
