The first novel in the Heaven series from the internationally bestselling author, Mitch Albom. THE FIVE PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVEN is a wonderfully moving fable that addresses the meaning of life, and life after death, in the poignant way that made TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE such an astonishing book. The novel's protagonist is an elderly amusement park maintenance worker named Eddie who, while operating a ride called the 'Free Fall', dies while trying to save a young girl who gets in the way of a falling cart that hurtles to earth. Eddie goes to heaven, where he meets five people who were unexpectedly instrumental in some way in his life. While each guide takes him through heaven, Eddie learns a little bit more about what his time on earth meant, what he was supposed to have learned, and what his true purpose on earth was. Throughout there are dramatic flashbacks where we see scenes from his troubled childhood, his years in the army in the Philippines jungle, and with his first and only love, his wife Marguerite. THE FIVE PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVEN is the perfect book to follow TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE. Its compellingly affecting themes and lyrical writing will fascinate Mitch Albom's huge readership.

This book uncovers an ancient Irish perspective of learning and reconfigures it to offer a vitality-restoring vision for education in our digital age. Its aim is to help re-engage learners of the Net generation meaningfully and with enjoyment in the learning process. The proliferation of new technologies in the classroom has generally not been accompanied by new pedagogical thinking and the discourse is still framed almost exclusively in terms of the utilitarian mindset of the Western world. Consequently, education is too often delivered within a context that is unfit for purpose. The author argues that we need to bring the wisdom of different cultural perspectives to bear on our understanding of the nature and purpose of learning, and on the role of technology in the learning process. She shares an energising vision of education based on the ancient Irish understanding of learning as nourishment for the human spirit, expressed as learning by wandering. Illustrating the universal and timeless relevance of this understanding, she demonstrates from personal experience how a synthesis of ancient wisdom and new technologies can transform the learning process. This book offers a new dimension to the ongoing debate on the future of education in the Western world.

If asked, who among us wouldn't say we were kind people? But kindness is often manifested in feelings of pity or sympathy--especially when others are watching--rather than in deeds. And when it comes down to it, what good does mere feeling do for the world? Your Next 24 Hours is about something much bigger--a lifestyle of kindness, without thought of reciprocation, extended toward every person in our lives, both friend and foe. Through powerful true stories of kindness lived out, this book shows readers the enormous difference they can make through small, doable acts of kindness in their families, communities, workplaces, schools, and churches. It shows how every encounter with another person is an opportunity to be kind--and a chance to change our world. Readers of Your Next 24 Hours will find deep satisfaction and joy as they discover how they can be part of a revolution of kindness that starts with them and reaches out through every person their lives touch.

Ethan, why are you afraid? My dad! I heared him in the hallway! Mrs. Perkins says, Ethan, there is no danger here at school. Your dad cant come here. The principal comes to get me to the office. I sit on the love seat there, but I dont know why they call it that cause you sit there when you are in trouble. Ive been in trouble before. Trouble can mean more than one thing. Ethans kindergarten year is the year that his life changed. From Ethans perspective it just means his dad is gone for now, and at any moment the abuse might happen again. Kate is ready to face life with newfound strength. However, Ethans brain is already wired on a hair trigger ready to lash out in anger, or seek refuge in his hide-and-seek cabinet, every minute of every day. Kates determination to help her son is undeniable, but is it too late for Ethan? Burning Watercolors is a powerful, emotional insight into domestic violence and children affected by trauma, for anyone wanting to understand how women are pulled intoand trapped inmarriages defined by abuse, why children with trauma often develop disruptive anger and destructive behaviors, and what can truly heal dysfunction and bring an emotionally stable future. A must-read for anyone who works with women and children of abuse, neglect, and trauma. Melissa M. Tenpas, MPH, Director of Royal Family KIDS Colorado Springs, a ministry to abused and neglected foster children Burning Watercolors by Jillian Laine is a deeply personal novel that reveals the impact of spousal abuse on both a mother and a 5-year-old son in the family. This author did a masterful job of writing the thoughts and feelings of the mother and the son. This might sound like a gloomy book, and parts of it are hard to read, but its actually a story of redemption. Jillian brought not only the relationships alive, she created wonderful settings as well. I highly recommend this novel.

As our interactions with others become ever more mediated by various forms of electronic communication, the relationship between crime and technology is becoming an increasingly important topic for both theoretical and practical studies of criminology. This book analyzes digital communications as they play a part in contemporary homicide, drawing on a range of cases from the United Kingdom and elsewhere in the world--cases where killers confessed on social media, for example, or where their actions were traced using their digital communications. Offering a groundbreaking conceptual framework for people studying this issue, the book will be of great value to criminologists, students, and police officers.

The myth says every marriage is decided in heaven. If it is so, why do we love another person first? When God already knows, why does He let us love someone else, when He knows that it is going to be a disaster? He would like to play with our life to have fun. I am one of his victims; he made me love one girl, but my fate had different plans. Some people say love can only happen once, but I don’t think it ends with one; it moves from one to the other. Yes! I’m serious; it happened to me. I thought Neetu was my life partner, but later on, Varsha and Keerthana came into my life. Sorry. Sorry. I didn’t say my name. I’m Karthik. Welcome to my world.
