BOOK EXCERPT:

Violence was a way of life for the girls of Mott Middle School in the South Bronx. Some woke up to it at home, and others dodged it on the way to school. Vicious physical fights broke out in classrooms, hallways, and bathrooms. These girls filed their fingernails into sharp points because they had to be ready to go at any time. Then a new coach joined the ranks at Mott Middle, and a new program began: girl's softball. Astacio offers the girls the time and attention they need to take their first steps to success. As they learned to throw, hit and field, they also dealt with the foul balls life threw at them: unwanted pregnancies, abusive boyfriends, and unsupportive families. But the biggest challenge they faced was learning to think and act like a team, not just a bunch of fierce girls against each other—and the world. Lady Tigers is a story of coming together with faith, courage, and new-found values to overcome fear, violence, and doubt. These girls have ushered in a new confidence and pride not only in themselves, but in their school, the faculty, and their friends. And while not all of them have continued down this new path, many are now the first in their families to go to college and are beginning to see how being a Lady Tiger will always be a part of their lives.

BOOK EXCERPT:

New York City's Detective Schaefer has seen it all, from domestic murders to drug-gang executions. But Schaefer's never seen the Big Apple awash in so much blood as tonight, with flayed bodies hung like meat being cured for mealtime. When Schaefer has a close encounter with one of the murderers, he realizes he's run into something much bigger than the police suspect. Can even the toughest cop stand up to the ultimate hunter? Penned by screenwriter Mark Verheiden (_Smallville, Heroes, Battlestar Gallactica, Falling Skies_), _Predator: Concrete Jungle_ is the hit comics sequel to the blockbuster film and the beginning of the long-running Predator comics franchise.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Roughly 80% of the world’s population now lives in urban areas. Cities offer anonymity to violent criminals as well as to those who value privacy. New digital technologies allow purveyors of hatred and assorted smut to enter our homes and pedophiles use the Internet to bait our children and victimize them. This book is designed to provide you with a tested methodology for being secure in the concrete jungle without slipping into paranoia or denial. You don’t have to be a just another crime statistic! About the Author Jim Wygand has provided seminars on personal security to companies, diplomats, government security personnel, schools, families and individuals for the past 18 years. He has been involved in the negotiation of several kidnaps and has written numerous articles and monographs on the issue of personal security. His method for avoiding violent crime is based on the same techniques employed by law enforcement, CIA, FBI, diplomatic and military personnel, to recognize and deal with possible danger. He has a strong personal reason for writing this book and he wants YOU and YOUR FAMILY to be safe. Jim Wygand is also the author of a novel entitled The Story of Charlie Mullins: The Man in the Middle.
