Tommy Kane has worked as a creative director in advertising for over 30 years. Over that time he has both cultivated a very particular obsession with squirrels, and a catharsis in documenting his surroundings in his sketchbooks with his humble weapon of choice the Uni-ball Vision Fine Point. His wife Yun Lee s own passion is exotic travel and at first she balks at his preference to sit on a camping stool on a street corners, pen in hand, instead of visit the museums she had planned to see, but soon realises the zen it provides him and the happiness his sketches bring to those they know. With a unique and emotive attention to detail in Kane s sketching and painting style, and inspired by his wife s wanderlust, he has captured cultural idiosyncrasies with an uncanny humour and tenderness in his valiant attempt to sketch the world.

They warned us! Our President and the heads of state, all of our governing bodies. They predicted it would be a long and costly conflict. Nothing like Vietnam in the 60s or the Desert Storm War of 1991. Yes, we the people were warned but we backed our President by a great majority when he promised to get justice for the thousands of innocent civilians killed in the terrorist attacks in September 2001. Two thousand one. It seems so long ago when life was peaceful and the economy strong. Everyone had a good life and we lived in the land of the free. All that has changed. We were warned but we had no idea. This is my story of how it changed and how some of us survived the final war.

"[A] taut and unique blend of legal drama, fantasy, and noir." —Publishers Weekly, starred review Max Gladstone's Craft Sequence chronicles the epic struggle to build a just society in a modern fantasy world. Shadow demons plague the city reservoir, and Red King Consolidated has sent in Caleb Altemoc—casual gambler and professional risk manager—to cleanse the water for the sixteen million people of Dresediel Lex. At the scene of the crime, Caleb finds an alluring and clever cliff runner, Crazy Mal, who easily outpaces him. But Caleb has more than the demon infestation, Mal, or job security to worry about when he discovers that his father—the last priest of the old gods and leader of the True Quechal terrorists—has broken into his home and is wanted in connection to the attacks on the water supply. From the beginning, Caleb and Mal are bound by lust, Craft, and chance, as both play a dangerous game where gods and people are pawns. They sleep on water, they dance in fire...and all the while the Twin Serpents slumbering beneath the earth are stirring, and they are hungry. Set in a phenomenally built world in which lawyers ride lightning bolts, souls are currency, and cities are powered by the remains of fallen gods, Max Gladstone's Craft Sequence introduces readers to a modern fantasy landscape and an epic struggle to build a just society.

Today's business environment demands a new approach to leadership, one that effectively connects individuals and organizations in the midst of change. Leading with Sense offers a new, practical approach to meeting this challenge. Drawing on her experience as a poetic translator and her expertise in cross-cultural leadership, Valérie Gauthier outlines the tenets of savoir-relier: a framework for building sensible, trustworthy, and lasting relationships that enables leaders to value difference, work across boundaries, and navigate complex systems. Savoir-relier teaches leaders to tap into their senses in the midst of strategizing, allowing them to act intuitively and rationally at once. Few leaders dare to claim that their "gut feelings" are critical to their decisions. But, by engaging their intuition, they are able to draw on experience, better appreciate their environment, build confidence, and summon the courage to tackle the task at hand. Leading with Sense trains readers to be poets and translators in the business context. With savoir-relier, we can write our own stories, deciphering the challenges that we face with acumen, humility, and respect. Using real-world examples of this pioneering approach, Gauthier provides readers with methods and tools for cultivating a savoir-relier mindset to build positive relationships, nurture diversity, drive mindful innovation, and foster success.
