In this refreshing and original exploration, George Dennis O'Brien looks at higher education in America. O'Brien argues that to debate intelligently the future of education we must stop focusing on its ideals and look instead at its institutions. He does this by addressing nine half-truths, such as whether "low cost public education benefits the least advantaged in society," and goes on to examine how accurately they reflect the true state of higher education. The result is a thought-provoking discussion of the present challenges and future prospects of American higher education. "O'Brien's historical overview of the transition from 19th-century denominational colleges to 20th-century research-driven and largely secular ones is provocative. Cleverly written and well-focused, the book addresses the financial pressures facing higher education and asks vital questions about cutbacks and curricula."—Publishers Weekly "Lively, engaging, and richly suggestive." —Francis Oakley, Commonweal "O'Brien employs calm, powerful reason, without sensationalism. His perspective is illuminating. . . . All the Essential Half-Truths About Higher Education is one of the wisest and most useful treatments of American higher education." —John Attarian, Detroit News
Susanna has an incredible gift: she can heal ailments with just the touch of her hand. People travel from far and wide based on their faith in her abilities. But Susanna’s power only works in certain cases -- it’s a semi-miracle. And as she grows into a woman, and tries to build a life of her own, her calling to fix and cure becomes more of a burden than a blessing. Why is she able to take people’s pain away sometimes, and not others? And not when she needs to most of all? With the balm of time, and the wisdom of experience, Susanna must learn to live with the mysterious nature of her miracle. Available to readers for the first time since its initial publication, this is a wry and moving story by an American master.
The best organisations have the best talent. . . Financial incentives drive company performance. . . Firms must change or die. Popular axioms like these drive business decisions every day. Yet too much common management wisdom isn’t wise at all—but, instead, flawed knowledge based on best practices that are actually poor, incomplete, or outright obsolete. Worse, legions of managers use this dubious knowledge to make decisions that are hazardous to organisational health. This practical and candid book challenges leaders to commit to evidence-based management as a way of organisational life – and shows how to finally turn this common sense into common practice.

I listened to them speak their language and thought that I understood some of their tongue. Could this be? I ventured even closer and listened further. My heart was pounding with joy. Though these people were light years away from Mars, they possessed almost the same tongue language that we had learned in our lesser institutions on Mars. Imagine that? It seemed as though they now spoke about themselves and it was in an archaic mode of time, for they spoke of the quickness of their travel and the prominence of the Pharaoh Pharaoh? I once had read about such Pharaoh people in our history volumes, which lived on Mars thousands of years ago. I was beginning to now understand that this planet was not as progressed as Mars had been maybe this is good I thought, very well for us. "Thank you, Dargod," I whispered to myself. It was as though Dargod was always with me, wherever I went. I had been on Earth only three sunrises, and I had already found that this soil was like Mars's, only with different dimensions. The inhabitants here were nearly the same. But, were they friendly?
