Elizabeth and Betsy had been school friends in 1950s London. Elizabeth, prudent and introspective, values social propriety. Betsy, raised by a spinster aunt, is open, trusting, and desperate for affection. After growing up and going their separate ways, the two women reconnect later in life. Elizabeth has married kind but tedious Digby, while Betsy is still searching for love and belonging. In this deeply perceptive story, Anita Brookner brilliantly charts the resilience of a friendship tested by alienation and by jealousy over a man who seems to offer the promise of escape.

The Emmy award-winning news anchor of Outnumbered Overtime with Harris Faulkner and co-host of the talk show Outnumbered shares the lessons she learned growing up in a military family paying homage to the military ideals that shaped her and showing how everyone can benefit from bringing the wisdom of military service into their lives. Born into a military family, Harris Faulkner revered her father, a decorated career officer who served three tours of duty in Vietnam and raised his children with the values and ideals of the U.S. military. Accompanying him from posting to posting, young Harris experienced firsthand how success in life was rooted in the knowledge, integrity, and leadership that came from her military surroundings. Indeed, these formative lessons in leadership and work ethic became the guiding principles for her career as a journalist, lessons she credits with her rise to become one of the top hosts on Fox News. Now, she shares the advice, wisdom, and tools that she absorbed through her military upbringing, examining how these ideals have shaped her professional and personal outlook and how everyone can incorporate them into their own lives. Using her father’s career as the backdrop to her experience, she explores the lessons in courage, duty, patriotism, and responsibility that helped her succeed, demonstrating the truth to the axiom that in military families everyone serves—together. Along the way she also interviews current and former military families, generals and other officers, and tells stories from her father’s career to illuminate how and why the message and mission of the military is so effective at changing lives both on and off the battlefield. Illustrated with sixteen pages of never-before-seen photos of her early life and career, this instructive book, part memoir, part motivational life guide, reminds us of our most important values—the keys to a successful life.

From the New York Times Best-Selling Author of DEFCON One "Exciting and controversial. A powerful novel of the rules of war—and a man who broke them."—W. E. B. Griffin Marine pilot Brad Austin and his carrier-based F-4 Phantom group fly into the heart of enemy territory daily without fear, but the rules of engagement hinder them nearly as much as the North Vietnamese. Restricted from attacking the enemy's MiG bases, Austin and the other American pilots are vulnerable to attack without the ability to retaliate, a weakness that tragically leads to the death of Austin's wingman. Consumed by the need to avenge his comrade, Austin goes one-on-one with the enemy in a battle that ultimately proves in war there can be no rules. In a fast-paced, thrilling look into the life of a Vietnam War fighter pilot, Joe Weber takes us high into the flack-filled skies above Hanoi and shows us the air war as only a veteran fighter pilot can. Joe Weber "does an admirable job of evoking in such readers a visceral understanding of the restrictions that precluded victory in Vietnam. In Rules of Engagement, Weber's political points will hit close to home, and they will strengthen the resolve of many, such as myself, who are determined never to allow the mistakes of Vietnam to be repeated."—Senator John McCain "Weber's writing has a great deal of panache. His knowledge of military hardware is impressive, and his edge-of-the-seat scenes are thrilling."—The Book Reader

In this provocative book, the acclaimed author of Holy Days, Lis Harris, offers a fascinating look at the institution of marriage: how it is changing, what it may yet become. Rules of Engagement follows the trials and triumphs of four very real couples: upper-class Sarah and Eaton, whose 1950s marriage has been transformed in the wake of feminism; working-class Mike and Claire, who have struggled through multiple separations and reconciliations in their common-law marriage; middle-class African-Americans Carlita and Samuel, striving to succeed with their two young children in an often hostile world; and middle-aged Neal and Vera, idealists whose relationship has survived an experiment with "open marriage." From these four couples, Harris draws invaluable lessons about relationships in general and about the unique nature of American marriage, an institution that continues to thrive in an ever-changing world because of our willingness to experiment with and reinvent it.

How many of your employees would stay with you if they were offered another job? CIPD research shows that even employees who are basically satisfied with their lot no longer trust their employer. After years of redundancies, zero bonuses, minimal pay rises and promotion freezes, how are you going to get the levels of commitment you need from a workforce that no longer trusts you? How do we get these disgruntled, demotivated - some might say just plain disgusted - employees to take an active and hopefully enthusiastic part in your business? Johnson offers practical remedies for rebuilding the psychological contract and regaining commitment. He argues that although trust has vanished from the workplace, there are ways to develop a new psychological contract between employer and employee. This book offers practical, down-to-earth solutions that human resource and general managers can use to re-energise the employees (and themselves )

I then provide a short introduction to each couple that was interviewed in my study so readers can relate to their examples throughout the book. This is followed by a general introduction to the book which includes why they should care about having a healthy marriage, the six areas that research has shown to be important to a marriage, and the 6 rules for a healthy marriage. The first chapter is my personal experience with marriage and divorce, effectively setting up an example of what not to do in a marriage. My personal story will help readers understand the rules more thoroughly, and understand where I am coming from in writing the book. The first chapter also lays out the structure of the book and briefly explains my research and how the 6 rules were identified. The following 6 chapters will explain the 6 rules of keeping 6 vital areas of marriage healthy: finances, extended family, parenting, and family dynamics, preserving the relationship, and respecting differences. Each chapter will break down the importance of one of the rules, how it works to keep a marriage healthy, and strategies for incorporating the rule into the reader’s life. The chapters will include stories from the couples interviewed in the study that will give the reader further examples of the 6 rules. The next chapter will describe the essence of a strong marriage and how to apply the rules in general. The final section is The Tools of Engagement.

By telling their stories about their remarkable careers in traditionally male-dominated environments, Martha LaGuardia-Kotite demonstrates how tenacious and courageous women can achieve the unimaginable. Among the pioneering women profiled are Vivien Crea, who as vice commandant of the Coast Guard held the highest position of any woman in the history of the U.S. military; Tammy Duckworth, a Purple Heart recipient and triple amputee who was shot down in Iraq while piloting a helicopter; and Heather Wilson, an Air Force Academy graduate, Rhodes scholar, and the country’s only female veteran in Congress. Included are the inspirational stories of women Marines, one of the three female Space Shuttle commanders, and the first female members of the military service academies’ gender-integrated classes, who recall the highs and lows of their trailblazing experiences. These are only a few of the remarkable women who tell their own inspiring stories. Representative of a widely diverse group of enlisted women and officers from different races and cultures, they have succeeded since the mid-1970s at combating prejudices and aiding change in the military with intelligence, passion, and honor.
