"While walking through a toy store, the day before today, I overheard a
crayon box with many things to say..." Once upon a time, Shane DeRolf wrote
a poem. It was a deceptively simple poem, a charming little piece that
celebrates the creation of harmony through diversity. The folks at the Ad
Council heard it--and liked it so much that they made it the theme for their
1997 National Anti-Discrimination Campaign for Children. Following on the heels
of nearly a year's worth of televised public service announcements, Random
House is phonored to publish the picture book, illustrated in every color in
the crayon box by dazzling newcomer Michael Letzig and conveying the sublimely
simple message that when we all work together, the results are much more
interesting and colorful.

|Persuader (Jack Reacher)
Lowest new price: $6.00

Author: Lee Child
Brand: Child, Lee
“Gripping and suspenseful . . . Child ratchets up the suspense to new heights.”—The Denver Post
Jack Reacher lives for the moment. Without a home. Without commitment. And with a burning desire to right wrongs—and rewrite his own agonizing past. DEA Susan Duffy is living for the future, knowing that she has made a terrible mistake by putting one of her own female agents into a death trap within a heavily guarded Maine mansion.
Staging a brilliant ruse, Reacher hurtles into the dark heart of a vast criminal enterprise. Trying to rescue an agent whose time is running out, Reacher enters a crime lord’s waterfront fortress. There he will find a world of secrecy and violence—and confront some unfinished business from his own past.
Praise for Persuader
“A page-turner . . . [Lee] Child’s tale drives hard and fast.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review
“Wickedly addictive . . . so fast-paced it makes the eyeballs spin.”—Orlando Sentinel
“A story that will sweep you along as fast as some of the riptides Reacher survives.”—St. Petersburg Times
Jack Reacher, the taciturn ex-MP whose adventures in Lee Child's six previous solidly plotted, expertly paced thrillers have won a devoted fan base, returns in this explosive tale of an undercover operation set up by the FBI to rescue an agent investigating Zachary Beck, a reclusive tycoon believed to be a kingpin in the drug trade. The novel begins with a bang as Reacher rescues Beck's son from a staged kidnapping in order to get close to his father--and trace the connection between Beck and Quinn, a former army intelligence officer who tried to sell blueprints of a secret weapon to Iraq but was murdered before he could pull it off. Or so Reacher thinks, until he spots Quinn in the crowd at a concert in Boston. As usual, Child ratchets up the tension and keeps the reader in suspense until the last page, although his enigmatic hero hardly ever seems to break a sweat. In the tough guy tradition, Reacher and his creator are overdue for a breakout, and this muscular, well-written mystery might be the one. --Jane Adams

At a 1931 barnstorming exhibition game in Tennessee, a seventeen-year-old pitcher for the Chattanooga Lookouts struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig back to back.

Jack Reacher. Hero. Loner. Soldier. Soldier’s son. An elite military cop, he was one of the army’s brightest stars. But in every cop’s life there is one case that changes everything. For Jack Reacher, this is that case.
New Year’s Day, 1990. In a North Carolina motel, a two-star general is found dead. His briefcase is missing. Nobody knows what was in it. Within minutes Reacher has his orders: Control the situation. Within hours the general’s wife is murdered. Then the dominoes really start to fall.
Somewhere inside the vast worldwide fortress that is the U.S. Army, Reacher is being set up as a fall guy with the worst enemies a man can have. But Reacher won’t quit. He’s fighting a new kind of war–against an enemy he didn’t know he had. And against a conspiracy more chilling, ingenious, and treacherous than anyone could have guessed.

In this inspiring, unforgettable memoir, Ashley finds the courage to succeed - and in doing so, discovers the power of her own voice.

List price: $194.00
Author: American Medical Association

Updated and Enhanced: AMA Guides Sixth offers the most current guidelines for correct impairment evaluation.
Please note: This pubilcation was reprinted in July 2009 to incorporate the Clarifications and Corrections document in its entirety. All purchases made after July 2009 will be the latest Guides Sixth ediiton available. Not sure? The word Reprint is on the outside , back cover of all reprinted copies.
The Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment, Sixth Edition, (Guides Sixth) from the American Medical Association, emphasizes the fundamental skills physicians need to evaluate and communicate patient impairments.
Standardized methodology is applied to each chapter to enhance the relevancy of impairment ratings, improve internal consistency and promote ease of application to the rating process. This ordered method enables busy physicians to become proficient with the ratings for multiple organ systems and anticipate how each chapter is organized and assimilates information.
The Guides Sixth applies both terminology from, and an analytical framework based on, the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), to generate five impairment classes which permit the rating of the patient from no impairment to most severe. A diagnosis-based grid has been developed for each organ system that arranges commonly used ICD-9 diagnoses within the five classes of impairment severity, acording to the consensus-based dominant criterion.
Functionally based histories, physical findings and broadly accepted objective clinical tests results are integrated where applicable to help physicians determine the grade within the imairment class. The result is a decision that is both transparent and reproducible.
Using the latest evidence in diagnosis and clinical tests, the Guides Sixth offers the following key features:
The latest scientific research and evolving medical opinion provided by nationally and internationally-recognized experts.
Standardized approach across organ systems and chapters.
Expanded use of diagnostic approach to help physicians consider relevant clinical tests and outcomes in performing the rating.
Required clinical information needed to rate a given condition.
Clear step-by-step grading instructions in each chapter to promote consistent scoring of impairment ratings and to improve physician consistency.
Simplified methodology presented between chapters.
Contemporary, evidence-based concepts and terminology of disablement from the ICF.
More comprehensive and expanded diagnostic approach.
Transparent process to allow the evaluator to document functional assessment, clinical tests and physician findings.
Uniform grids to help physicians calculate impairment ratings.
