Malibu, CA, 1968. Denny Martel, a twenty-seven-year-old trial lawyer wunderkind in the Los Angeles County Public Defender's office, becomes deeply involved in the hunt for a serial killer. He soon realizes he's the target of a secret LAPD unit, and his Malibu beach cottage is no refuge. In the gritty LA trial courts, on the Venice Beach testosterone-charged "A" basketball court, in the "wilds" of Malibu, and among an amazing cadre of beautiful and complicated women, Denny seeks justice and his true self. In the summer of 1968, a serial killer is loose in Los Angeles. The press calls him the Night Slayer, and he robs "mom-and-pop" businesses in South Central LA, leaving no witnesses. As the Slayer's body count increases, the city begins to destabilize and a repeat of the Watts Riots is brewing. Denny's high school pal, Jack Hansen, is the lead LAPD homicide detective charged with catching the Slayer. As the Public Defender for many of the suspects arrested, Denny begins to formulate a profile of the Slayer. As the search continues, Denny wins and loses trials and women. He's an emerging star in the criminal justice system and is realizing the significance and vulnerability of that role. Then, using Denny's insight to the Slayer, Jack makes the arrest, and Denny will now represent the Slayer at the lineup.

We need this book now-more than ever. Today, our Mother Earth is giving us a time-out to go to our corners and think about what we have done, and she is compelling us to wake up and to remember that we are all connected from the global markets and economies to the air we inhale and exhale. One day we will realize that there is nothing more important in the world than knowing that each of us has a gift and that we are all here to support each other to fulfill that gift. The Secrets of the Seasons can help a sleepwalking world awaken and live a life of passion, purpose, and magic. There is an ancient yet easily testable way of bringing love and joy back into the world. We can use it to come together and shake people from their slumber while initiating a new paradigm of consciousness and capitalism, loving respect, and a better life for all. When embraced and understood, the power and simplicity of these secrets-as given to Lawrence Ford and as shared with you in this book, will transform your life. By embodying the deep meaning and transformative potential these secrets have for all of our lives, and by learning to make use of the upgraded big picture reality co-creation operating system that underlies this set of ancient wisdom-based roadmaps, we can come to live whole, in peace and prosperity, individually and collectively, as ourselves, our families, and the whole world. Like every snowflake, the special song your soul sings is completely unique to you, just as your reason for being here is unique to you. Throughout the entirety of our physical existence on earth-through all the twists and turns on all the pathways that each of us goes down as we move through the cyclical seasons of our lives-we are guided to remember our soul's unique song and our reason for being here. You can tune into that knowledge at any moment of your life-including right now-just as you can tune into the pure love you knew yourself to be upon being born and for quite some time after that. As Lawrence Ford reminds us, "You are here for a reason."

Right-Minded Teamwork (RMT) is an intelligent and empowering teamwork system. It is for everyone, everywhere, forever. Apply RMT, and you will improve your work processes and strengthen your relationships. Apply RMT, and your team will achieve 100% customer satisfaction. Apply RMT, and you make the world a better place. It is an honor to introduce you to this unique, real-world, continuous improvement method. RMT has already improved the lives and teams of thousands of people worldwide. Apply this process in your team, and you, too, will reap its benefits. Is this book for you? This book is primarily intended as a resource for leaders and facilitators. But it is also much more than that. The content you will find here can positively benefit everyone, everywhere, on any team. RMT is a universal, self-evident, self-validating process with the power to transform even the most challenged team. What is this book about? This book teaches two significant Right-Minded Teamwork (RMT) concepts: The RMT Myth, a short tale that presents the underlying teamwork philosophy, and 2) The RMT team-building process. The RMT Myth is a short, simple story. It follows three characters: Reason, Ego, and you, the Decision-Maker. The Myth illustrates the Right-Minded Teamwork philosophy, sort of like an aspirational thought system. The RMT Myth advocates for teammates to follow Reason’s path to oneness and shared interest instead of following Ego’s disastrous advice to seek separateness and prioritize selfishness. In other words, the Myth illustrates what “right-minded” thinking and behaving look and feel like. Once you have read and understood the RMT Myth, you and your team are ready for the Right-Minded Teamwork process. Unlike the story about Reason, Ego, and the Decision-Maker, the RMT process is no myth. It is practical, deliberate, and reliable. The RMT process is a set of interconnected, team-building methods that together form a self-perpetuating, continuous improvement system. It allows you to integrate the aspirations of the RMT Myth into your team in a way that helps you achieve your business goals. This book will teach you the RMT process, including seven of RMT’s proven team-building methods that lead to continuous improvement. Why Consider RMT? There are three common team-building practices: education, games, and social events. As far as real team building goes, none of these approaches is effective. Not one of them produces proven, reliable results. If you have participated in them, you know what I mean. Still, many well-meaning team leaders continue to use these ineffective tactics, trying to make them work. Usually, this is because they do not realize there is a better way. A real-world approach to team building is the better way. It is also the most reliable way to achieve and sustain high-performance teamwork. Right-Minded Teamwork is a real-world, team-building process. Applied intentionally, it has the power to transform your team, bringing you together to work as one. That is why RMT is worth considering for your team. The future of RMT… As I write this, RMT is, to my knowledge, the only model of its kind. However, I pray that it is not unique and that real-world methodologies become the prevailing team-building approach around the world one day. I'm optimistic this future is on its way. I believe that as more people like you understand and embrace this superior approach to creating stronger teams, we will see less and less of those ineffective approaches. I also believe in a better future for teams because I know I’m not alone in wishing for it. For decades, my clients expressed the same desire. They were changed by our work together and what they learned, and they went on to share RMT’s concepts and principles with others. Through them, the ripple effect began. Through you, it will continue. Together, we will build better teams: teams that do no harm, get work done and work as one. Dan Hogan

Evangelical Protestantism has arguably become the fastest-growing religion in South America, if not the world. For converts, it emphasizes self-discipline and provides a network of communal support, which together have helped many overcome substance abuse, avoid crime and violence, and resolve relationship problems. But can people simply decide to believe in a religion because of the benefits it reportedly delivers? Based on extensive fieldwork among Pentecostal men in Caracas, Venezuela, this rich urban ethnography seeks an explanation for the explosion of Evangelical Protestantism, unraveling the cultural and personal dynamics of Evangelical conversion to show how and why these men make the choice to convert, and how they come to have faith in a new system of beliefs and practices.

Michael Luntley provides a lively introduction to the debate over postmodernism. Sympathisers of the postmodernist critique of absolute knowledge have jetisoned concepts of reason,t ruth and self; this abandonment has fuelled their opponents' case against postmodernism. This has led them to ignore the very real problems raised by the postmodernists. Luntley offers a clear and careful exposition of how rational debate survives despite the Enlightenment's failings. Reason, Truth and Self covers many of the key questions of our age: * How rational is science? * Can we really know the truth about ourselves and the world? * What is the nature of the mind? * Can we know the difference between right and wrong? Reason, Truth and Self is ideal for courses in philosophy and the social sciences.

Through the whole history of mankind philosophers have taken pride in being reasonable agents. During the last decades Rüdiger Bittner, one of the internationally best renown german philosophers and winner of the Gottlob Frege award 2011, has developed a surprisingly different picture: We are much more part than master of the universe. The articles in the volume address this challenging view, illuminating and discussing it from various angles of practical philosophy including the aesthetics of film and theatre.
