The Mother of All Booklists: The 500 Most Recommended Nonfiction Reads for Ages 3 to 103 is written for parents, grandparents, and teachers unfamiliar with the bewildering array of award and recommended reading lists. This book is a long overdue composite of all the major booklists. It brings together over 100 of the most influential book awards and reading lists from leading magazines, newspapers, reference books, schools, libraries, parenting organizations, and professional groups from across the country. The Mother of All Booklists is to reading books what the website Rotten Tomatoes is to watching movies—the ultimate, one-stop, synthesizing resource for finding out what is best. Mother is not the opinion of one book critic, but the aggregate opinion of an army of critics. Organized into five age group lists each with one hundred books—preschoolers (ages 3-5), early readers (ages 5-9), middle readers (ages 9-13), young adults (ages 13-17), and adults (ages 18+)—The Mother of All Booklists amalgamates the knowledge of the best English-language booklists in the United States, including a few from Canada and Great Britain. Each of the 500 books is annotated, describing the contents of the book and suggesting why the book is unique and important. Each includes a picture of the book cover.

Following on from the success of Men Explain Things to Me comes a new collection of essays in which Rebecca Solnit opens up a feminism for all of us: one that doesn't stigmatize women's lives, whether they include spouses and children or not; that brings empathy to the silences in men's lives as well as the silencing of women's lives; celebrates the ways feminism has shifted in recent years to reclaim rape jokes, revise canons, and rethink our everyday lives.

The cardinal question that The Mother of All Minds seeks to answer is this one: where does the explosive advance in information, change and complexity of our modern times leave human thinking skills-leave the mind itself? This highly resourceful work''s confident answer: doing what it always does best! On the leading edges of the envelope, says the author of The Mother of All Minds, the human brain has been busy rewiring itself so as to prepare the mind for keeping pace with a restless, demanding, ever-changing world. Not every computer gets upgraded, of course. And not every mind will find itself propelled to the cutting edge. But in that amazing blaze of history since the middle of the last millennium''s final century, more and more contemporary minds have made such a move in their own self-interest. And more-perhaps many more-will do so soon. The Mother of All Minds is the story of this emerging migration to the mind of the future and what it can mean for you.Perhaps of more importance, it offers "how to" instructions for making sure you don''t miss this opportunity of all opportunities if it comes within your grasp. Opening the door to this latest example of the brain''s harnessing its natural powers for upgrade requires that you successfully undertake "the mother of all personal breakthroughs." Make the momentous leap across the gap separating traditional thinking skills of Alpha from the new ones articulated in The Mother of All Minds, and you land neurons first in the middle of what the author calls the new Beta mind (because it is a much-improved-on replacement in many categories for the species'' first great mind, one called-naturally-Alpha).Page after riveting page, this groundbreaking work tracks and narrates these kinds of late-breaking, over-the-top developments:o The mind''s unexpected developmental U-turn. Rather than break new ground by creating one revolutionary new thinking skill after another, the latest epic shift of mind has chosen to assemble an astonishing new "total thinking package" largely crafted from mental skills we already have in place. It''s a startling development that no "mind-change forecaster" anticipated. And one that only the pioneering American psychologist Dr. Clare W. Graves, whose work serves as an important backdrop for The Mother of All Minds, provided a persuasive model for understanding. o Booby traps everywhere! One by one and in detail, The Mother of All Minds warns of the dangers that can imperil us as we pass through each of Alpha''s multiple growth stages. Become marooned in any one of these "grooves of obsolescence" and there''s no further advance, either as an individual or as a species. And even advanced users of Alpha have found themselves stymied in recent decades by a yawning "psychological barrier reef of the mind." o A mind that reads itself, among others. Beta can offer a window on the world of others and on its own user''s world that can be little short of prescient. One of this new mind''s most powerful skills is its ability often to discern what any mind may be basing its current conclusions on. Such knowledge may offer you precisely the clues you need to save a relationship, cement a deal, inspire a new point of view, avoid disaster or initiate a myriad of other outcomes that can help you be a more effective and productive person. o A startling new role for a universal human experience. One of The Mother of All Minds''s most astonishing revelations (to be kept secret until you read the book) surrounds a groundbreaking new explanation of what lies behind endless eons of sorrow-processing and how they relate to the species'' relentless construction of a mind capable of processing more and more complexity.o A proxy for optimism. Optimism''s successor under Beta is what the author styles "hope"-timism. This new "take" on a traditional mental quality from Alpha stakes its new strength of purpose and commitment on an unshakable long-range faith that human nature will, despite its many, momentous challenges, have the chance to behave optimally, given its genetic coding. Numerous other surprising insights and developments await the reader of The Mother of All Minds. And by the end of the book, each reader will have important clues to where she or he currently resides on this remarkable odyssey of the species. The author believes many psychologically aware and ambitious persons will find the vision and roadmap spelled out in The Mother of All Minds for the near-term future of the planet and those responsible for it at this moment to be compelling and realistic. And will want to be in the thick of the demanding assignments ahead with every ounce of nitro their neurons can muster.Mr. Lynch''s argument is that the world needs all the Beta thinkers it can get, and needs them now. What better reason, he asks, does any intelligent person with a responsive conscience and a dream of betterment on Earth for the greater good need to commit to seeking out and traveling the road he''s mapping?The author has been a serious student for more than three decades of the interlocking mysteries of mind, society and the changing nature of our protean world. His book, Strategy of the Dolphin: Scoring a Win in a Chaotic World (written with Paul L. Kordis), was an international success a decade ago because-or so many readers in seven languages indicated-of its no-nonsense, authentic-feeling, bold-spirited counsel to thoughtful individuals and organizations caught up directly in the gathering, sometimes blinding change speeds of the Information Revolution. And now-he''s written a powerful, audacious, strategic, wisehearted sequel!

"... Brings to life the history of the most important agency of government in nineteenth century New Zealand as it traces the evolution of the Department of Internal Affairs from its genesis as the Colonial Secretary's Office in 1840 to the present day. Having given birth in due course to Public Works, Justice, Health and Social Welfare, the Department nonetheless still has an extraordinary array of functions -- each a small but integral part of a smoothly running democracy. It plays a significant role in some of the controversial issues of our day including the reform of local government, royal visits, state patronage of the arts and culture and the regulation of gambling and lotteries." -- Back cover.

Events in this story of the "Mother of All Battles," as Saddam designated the 1991 war, are drawn from primary Iraqi sources, including government documents, video and audiotapes, maps, and photographs captured by U.S. forces in 2003 from the regime's archives and never intended for outsiders' eyes. The book is part of an official U.S. Joint Forces Command research project to examine contemporary warfare from the point of view of the adversary's archives and senior leader interviews. Its purpose is to stimulate thoughtful analyses of currently accepted lessons of the first Gulf War. While not a comprehensive history, the author's balanced Iraqi perspective of events between 1990 and 1991 takes full advantage of his unique access to material. The result is a completely unknown but fully documented view from the other side.
