New but not "New"

The following are books newly dded to our collection that did not make it onto the "New" cart:

The Essential 55: an award-winning educator's rules for discovering the successful student in every child by Ron Clark
The runaway bestseller that's a must-have for every parent and teacher.
How many authors would travel coast to coast on a bus to get their book into as many hands as possible? Not many. But that's just what Ron Clark, author of The Essential 55, did to keep his book and message in the public eye. And it worked. The book sat tenaciously on the New York Times bestseller list for 11 weeks. Ron Clark was featured on the Today show, and in the Chicago Tribune, Good Housekeeping, and the New York Daily News -- not to mention the calls we've received from teachers and parents who want to get their hands on Ron's guidelines for teaching children. Call number 371.102 CLA

The Book Borrower by Alice Mattison
In deceptively quiet, guileless prose, she has described the mind numbing routine of child-care and the fraught, complex relations of men and women. Only Margaret Atwood has written as knowingly about the frienship between women. Emotionally wrenching, beautifully realized work. Call number FIC MAT

The One-Life Solution by Dr. Henry Cloud
Do you feel that if you could get rid of some of the chaos in your work life, you could take your performance to a greater level? Do you stay late at the office many nights, or check your BlackBerry when you don't? Do you have difficulty dealing with cantankerous bosses or passive-aggressive coworkers? If you've answered yes, your performance is suffering and your work life has taken over your personal life. In The One-Life Solution, bestselling author Dr. Henry Cloud examines the workplace. Through engaging real-world examples, Dr. Cloud shows us how to construct and enforce better boundaries against the technological devices, bullying bosses, and distracting coworkers who invade our time and space. Call number 650.1 CLO
