New adventures. New rules. A new type of hero... El Capitano is fed up. His home city of Derby has suddenly been transported to the other side of the galaxy, and there is no getting any sense out of the lighthouse alien who may have been responsible. Is that confounded woman Amelia Hammerhorn going to be of any use in getting the city home? It’s alright for his sister Barbarita Santacruz, though – all she has to do is create lasting world peace on Earth. El Capitano soon discovers there is more to the Derby problem than meets the eye and that is summed up by one word: Equinox. If you like your action adventure stories laced with mysticism, accents, big machines and lots of food and drink, this is for you. A ride you won’t want to get off – even if El Capitano does.

"All the lighthouses in the world care about humanity, even if people do not," said Chin-Tsu softly. "They sounding, all of them. Now. The storm, it comes." She squinted up at the trees swaying in the wind. And then she squinted at Tom Gill, who was panting beside her like a dog, "Sorry," he panted. "Weightlessness has had more of an effect on my legs than I thought. It was bound to. I will be fitter again soon." She gazed at him impassively. They were in woodland not far from Guildford. She picked up a twig and snapped it. "You too much muscle gym bunny," she said. "More muscle, less agility. Strong man with bad legs falls. You learn weightless way on ground." "Yes yes I know," said Gill, struggling to control his panting. "What was that anyway about lighthouses?" "They are all sounding warning of cosmic storm," shrugged Chin-Tsu. "I think so."

A Wall Street Journal bestseller Named one of 10 Best New Management Books for 2022 by Thinkers50 Creating a culture of learning and growth. Growth is the goal. Helping people develop their potential—enabling them to articulate and become the self they want to be, are capable of being, and that best serves them and others in the short and long term—is what we as individuals and leaders strive toward. But how do we grow? It turns out it happens in a predictable way, which means we can understand where we are in our growth and chart a way forward. In this compact, complete guide, Whitney Johnson dives more deeply than ever into the S Curve of Learning so that you can envision how growth happens and direct yourself and others in your organization to create a culture that fosters it. The growth and learning journey comes in three phases: the Launch Point, the Sweet Spot, and Mastery. Compelling examples of successful people will show you when and why growth is slow, how to keep going, what to do when growth and learning are almost too fast to keep up with, and how to leap from one growth journey to another. As individuals grow, so do organizations and societies. Growth is learning put into action—action that betters the world as we better ourselves and our small niches, both personal and professional, within it. Growth occurs when learning is internalized—when we try something new and invest the effort to move it from being something we do to something we are.

Here, at last, is a book brimming with the good news of raising children—the basic reassuring news about happiness and unconditional love, about enduring family connections and kids who grow up right. Edward M. Hallowell, M.D., father of three and a clinical psychiatrist, has thought long and hard about what makes children feel good about themselves and the world they live in. Now, in The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness, Dr. Hallowell shares his findings with all of us who care about children. As Dr. Hallowell argues, we don’t need statistical studies or complicated expert opinions to raise children. What we do need is love, wonder, and the confidence to trust our instincts. This inspiring book outlines a 5-step plan that all parents can use in giving their children the gift of happiness that will last a lifetime. Connection, play, practice, mastery, and recognition: as fundamental as these five concepts are, they hold the key to raising children with healthy self-esteem, moral awareness, and spiritual values. Dr. Hallowell explores each step in depth and shows how they work together to foster trust, respect, and joy. Privilege, wealth, and expensive “extras” are not necessary for happiness—there are many stories here of children who have overcome poverty, abandonment, and shocking deprivation to find true fulfillment. Dr. Hallowell encourages us as parents to reconnect with the moments in our own childhoods that made a difference; he explores the impact of genetics and environmental factors on the inner workings of a child’s mind; and he discusses how activities like team sports, community service, religious observance, and household chores can foster a child’s sense of mastery. Like the works of T. Berry Brazelton and Benjamin Spock, The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness is infused with the wisdom and humanity of a doctor who truly loves and understands children. Writing with the warmth of a friend and the authority of an expert, Dr. Hallowell gives us a book at once practical and exuberant, joyous and informative, eye-opening and reassuring. Ultimately, this book is a celebration of childhood and of the magic that happens between parents and the children they love.

But as this absorbing biography shows, Truffaut's personal story—from which he drew extensively to create the characters and plots of his films—is itself an extraordinary human drama.
