Jeremy Williams captured the nation’s imagination by coaching his high school football team to unprecedented heights while combating ALS and caring for a son with spina bifida. This is his family’s inspiring story. America first met Jeremy and Jennifer Williams when Extreme Makeover: Home Edition rebuilt their Depression-era farmhouse into a beautiful, handicapped-accessible haven. Friends, family, and neighbors from their west Georgia community—and all over the state—came together to support the ailing high school coach who had won their respect and their hearts. It made for compelling television but only told a little slice of the story. Tenacious gives you the rest—a tender love story, a thrilling sports story, and an unforgettable testimony to the power of faith and grit in the face of almost overwhelming adversity. In Tenacious you’ll meet: The distraught parents learning their son would be born with spina bifida. The young father facing his own devastating diagnosis of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) with matter-of-fact courage. The coach who guided his underdog team to a 10–0 Cinderella season—while struggling to walk, talk, and even breathe. Packed full of faith, hope, love, and miracles, Tenacious is a story you don’t want to miss.

A B C s of Behavioral Forensics

Get practical insights on the psychology of white-collar criminals—and how to outsmart them Understand how the psychologies of fraudsters and their victims interact as well as what makes auditors/investigators/regulators let down their guard. Learn about the psychology of fraud victims, including boards of directors and senior management, and what makes them want to believe fraudsters, and therefore making them particularly vulnerable to deception. Just as IT experts gave us computer forensics, we now have a uniquely qualified team immersed in psychology, sociology, psychiatry as well as accounting and auditing, introducing the emerging field of behavioral forensics to address the phenomenon of fraud. Ever wonder what makes a white-collar criminal tick? Why does she or he do what they do? For the first time ever, see the mind of the fraudster laid bare, including their sometimes twisted rationalizations; think like a crook to catch a crook! The A.B.C.'s of Behavioral Forensics takes you there, with expert advice from a diverse but highly specialized authoring team of professionals (three out of the four are Certified Fraud Examiners): a former accounting firm partner who has a PhD in psychology, a former FBI special agent who has been with investigative practices of two of the Big Four firms, an industrial psychiatrist who has worked closely with the C-level suite of large and small companies, and an accounting professor who has interviewed numerous convicted felons. Along with a fascinating exploration of what makes people fall for the common and not-so-common swindles, the book provides a sweeping characterization of the ecology of fraud using The A.B.C.'s of Behavioral Forensics paradigm: the bad Apple (rogue executive), the bad Bushel (groups that collude and behave like gangs), and the bad Crop (representing organization-wide or even societally-sanctioned cultures that are toxic and corrosive). The book will make you take a longer look when hiring new employees and offers a deeper more complex understanding of what happens in organizations and in their people. The A.B.C. model will also help those inside and outside organizations inoculate against fraud and make you reflect on instilling the core values of your organization among your people and create a culture of excellence and integrity that acts as a prophylactic against fraud. Ultimately, you will discover that, used wisely, behavioral methods trump solely economic incentives. With business fraud on the rise globally, The A.B.C.'s of Behavioral Forensics is the must-have book for investigators, auditors, the C-suite and risk management professionals, the boards of directors, regulators, and HR professionals. Examines the psychology of fraud in a practical way, relating it to aspects of fraud prevention, deterrence, detection, and remediation Helps you understand that trust violation—the essence of fraud—is a betrayal of behavioral assumptions about "trusted" people Explains how good people go bad and how otherwise honest people cross the line Underscores the importance of creating a culture of excellence and integrity that inoculates an organization from fraud risk (i.e., honest behavior pays, while dishonesty is frowned upon) Provides key takeaways on what to look for when hiring new employees and in your current employees, as well as creating and maintaining a culture of control consciousness Includes narrative accounts of interviews with convicted white-collar criminals, as well as interpretive insights and analysis of their rationalizations Furnishes ideas about how to enhance professional skepticism, how to resist fraudsters, how to see through their schemes, how to infuse internal controls with the people/behavioral element, and make them more effective in addressing behav

Her mother was unhappy because Marid used the phone a lot so she put a passcode on it to lock her out. Although Marid couldn’t call out, her friends could call her. She expected her mother to limit that, but she didn’t. Instead, she waited to punish her until after the Christmas holidays. Marid was talking about returning to school, when her mother lowered the boom. “Marid,” she said, “I’ve decided that you are going to attend a different school.” Standing there in stunned disbelief, Marid’s heart started breaking in half. She’d lose all her close friends and her favorite teachers. Although she hadn’t gone for more counseling sessions, most of all she would lose Myra Stanton’s protection. Myra had always asked how she was doing whenever she saw her in the hallways. Her mother had trashed Myra many times to Marid but she didn’t believe her the way she used too. Marid was beginning to see that her mother was a bully, and she was wrong for the way she treated her. Angrily, she demanded, “Why did you do this to me? You want me to fail and be miserable don’t you?” Emily looked at her daughter and said “Really Marid? Since when do you know what’s best? I know what’s best better than anyone, especially not that interfering bitch Myra Stanton.” Tearfully Marid said, “How could you do that? Why do you hate me so much?” Icily her mother replied, “Hate you? Don’t flatter yourself. You’re nothing but a manipulative bitch. You lied about me! You’re just like your father, the same kind of liar! Your rein of telling lies is finished; you aren’t going to get away with your lies so easily in a brand new school, without Ms. Myra there to protect you, are you?” Marid just stared at her, before turning away and going to her room. She slammed the door shut, expecting her mother to follow and hit her, but she didn’t care anymore. She lay on her bed sobbing into her pillow for hours, before she fell asleep.

Charlotte Starks Spencer has been serving the Lord Jesus Christ for 38 years. She has a great imagination and loves to write snack books to open up the eyes of children and adults. This little book was inspired by many years of telling her own three children stories she would very often create as she went alone. Hopie the Hero was written to let children know that they don't have to rescue someone from a burning building or do some other heroic act they see on television to be a hero. They can be a hero by obeying their parents, being kind to the new kid at school or church, listening to their teachers and not following the bad examples of others. Charlotte is blessed to have been married to James Spencer for 47 years. They have three wonderful grown adult children and are blessed with eleven grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. She sees the results of raising their children with the principles written in this book. They are wonderful adults and she is not saying they are perfect, nor ever made mistakes, but stood they on the promise in the Bible that says, “Train up a child in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it.” The word works! She also thanks God for her wonderful grandmother Louisa who is in glory and her mother Doris Starks who both made sure she went to Sunday School to learn the principles of God.

With one of the longest and most controversial careers in Hollywood history, Blake Edwards is a phoenix of movie directors, full of hubris, ambition, and raving comic chutzpah. His rambunctious filmography remains an artistic force on par with Hollywood's greatest comic directors: Lubitsch, Sturges, Wilder. Like Wilder, Edwards’s propensity for hilarity is double-helixed with pain, and in films like Breakfast at Tiffany's, Days of Wine and Roses, and even The Pink Panther, we can hear him off-screen, laughing in the dark. And yet, despite those enormous successes, he was at one time considered a Hollywood villain. After his marriage to Julie Andrews, Edwards’s Darling Lili nearly sunk the both of them and brought Paramount Studios to its knees. Almost overnight, Blake became an industry pariah, which ironically fortified his sense of satire, as he simultaneously fought the Hollywood tide and rode it. Employing keen visual analysis, meticulous research, and troves of interviews and production files, Sam Wasson delivers the first complete account of one of the maddest figures Hollywood has ever known.

Rudyard Kipling was a major figure of English literature, who used the full power and intensity of his imagination and his writing ability in his excursions into fantasy. Kipling, one of England's greatest writers, was born in Bombay. He was educated in England, but returned to India in 1882. He began writing fantasy and supernatural stories set in his native continent, such as 'The Phantom Rickshaw' and 'The Strange Ride of Morrowbie Jukes', and his most famous weird story is 'The Mark of the Beast' (1890), about a man cursed to transform into a were-leopard. This Masterwork, edited by Stephen Jones, Britain's most accomplished and acclaimed anthologist, collects all Kipling's weird fiction for the first time; the stories range from traditional ghostly tales to psychological horror.
