"Rabbit holes" are, by my definition, those secret places to which we all go to escape the occasional drudgery or unpleasantness of everyday existence. Each vignette in this book is designed to take you down a new rabbit hole to a place you wish to be or, on occasion, to a place you may need to be, whether or not it is obvious to you. The stories are flights of fancy, daydreams put to paper, designed to ignite your imagination and awaken that part of your brain grown stagnant by the predictability of everyday life. But these aren't stories you simply read; each of the forty rabbit holes in this collection is written in the second person making you, the reader, the central character. You will be an integral part of each story you read.

"Many students ask, 'What is the point of learning formal logic?' This book gives them the answer. Using the methods of deductive logic, Nelson Lande introduces each new element in exquisite detail, as he takes students through example after example, proof after proof, explaining the thinking behind each concept. Shaded areas and appendices throughout the book provide explanations and justifications that go beyond the main text, challenging those students who wish to delve deeper, and giving instructors the option of confining their course to the basics, or expanding it, when they wish, to more rigorous levels. Lande encourages students to think for themselves, while at the same time providing them with the level of explanation they need to succeed. It is a rigorous approach presented in a style that is informal, engaging, and accessible. Students will come away with a solid understanding of formal logic and why it is not only important, but also interesting and sometimes even fun. It is a text that brings the human element back into the teaching of logic." --Hans Halvorson, Princeton University

This book questions some of our most ingrained assumptions, not only about the nature of teaching and learning, but about what constitutes education, and about the cultural determinants of what is taught. What if who you think you are profoundly affects what and how you learn? Since Descartes, teachers in the Western tradition have dismissed the role of self in learning. What if our beliefs about self and learning are wrong, and relevance of knowledge to self actually enhances learning, as current research suggests? Jane Fried deconstructs the Grand Western Narrative of teaching and learning, describing it is a cultural fishbowl through which we see the world, rarely aware of the fishbowl itself, be it disciplinary constructs or the definition of liberal education. She leads us on a journey to question “the way things are”; to attend to the personal narratives of others from ethnic, racial and faith groups different from ourselves; to rediscover self-authorship as the core task of learning in college; and to empower ourselves and students to navigate the disorientation of the Alice in Wonderland rabbit holes of modern life. This is a book for all educators concerned about the purpose of college and of the liberal arts in the 21st century, and what it is we should reasonably expect students to learn. Jane Fried both upends many received ideas and offers constructive insights based on science and evidence, and does so in an engaging way that will stimulate reflection.

Corrie Weber has kept a secret for years: she talks to angels. Or, rather, angels talk to her, and have since she was a child. There's nothing subtle about visits from her winged messengers except the messages themselves. Their method of delivery is usually unwelcome and frequently unpleasant. Corrie records their communication in a journal and tries to work out the meaning of it all. While it seems like recent changes in her life are moving her in the right direction, Corrie feels like she's losing her way. She seeks clarity through the angels' insight but encounters difficulty. Will the angels provide comfort and guidance, or will they complicate matters even more?

This book is a light, practical look at leadership and the ways you can identify and avoid ineffective behaviors. If you are a leader or develop leadership programs, does any of this seem familiar? * I can't tell if my leadership style is effective. * I do everything right, but I'm still not getting ahead. * The last time I saw my boss was during my evaluation 3 months ago. * My boss is a jerk, but senior management doesn't care. They think he is just ambitious. * We have a high turnover of employees. * If any of the senior staff left tomorrow, the company would collapse.
