E-BOOK EXCERPT

In 2003, Brad Warner blew the top off the Buddhist book world with his irreverent autobiography/manifesto, Hardcore Zen: Punk Rock, Monster Movies, and the Truth about Reality. Now in his second book, Sit Down and Shut Up, Brad tackles one of the great works of Zen literature, the Shobogenzo, by thirteenth-century Zen master Dogen. Illuminating Dogen’s enigmatic teachings in plain language, Brad intertwines musings on sex, meditation, death, God, sin, and happiness with an exploration of the punk rock ethos. In chapters such as “Evil Is Stupid,” “Kill Your Anger,” and “Enlightenment Is for Sissies,” Brad melds the antiauthoritarianism of punk with that of Zen, mixing in a travelogue of his triumphant return to Ohio to play in a reunion concert of Akron punk bands. For those drawn to Buddhist teachings but scared off by their stiff austerity, Brad writes with a sharp smack of truth, in teachings and stories that cut to the heart of reality.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

On his very first day of school as a substitute teacher, Cinque Henderson was cursed at and openly threatened by one of his students. Not wanting trouble or any broken bones, Henderson called the hall monitor, who escorted the student to the office. But five minutes later the office sent him back with a note that read, “Ok to return to class.” That was it: no suspension, no detention, no phone call home, nothing. Sit Down and Shut Up: How Discipline Can Set Students Free is a passionate and personal analysis of Henderson's year as substitute teacher in some of America’s toughest schools. Students disrespected, yelled at, and threatened teachers, abetted by a school system and political culture that turned a willfully blind eye to the economic and social decline that created the problem. Henderson concludes that the failures of our worst schools are the result of a population in crisis: classrooms are microcosms of all our nation’s most vexing issues of race and class. The legacy and stain of race—the price of generational trauma, the cost of fatherlessness, the failures of capitalism, the false promise of meritocracy—played itself out in every single interaction Henderson had with an aggressive student, an unengaged parent, or a failed administrator. In response to the chaos he found in the classroom, Henderson proposes a recommitment to the notion that discipline—wisely and properly understood, patiently and justly administered—is the only proper route to freedom and opportunity for generations of poor youth. With applications far beyond the classroom, Henderson’s experiences offer novel insights into the pressing racial, social, and economic issues that have shaped America’s cultural landscape. Sure to ignite discussion and controversy, Sit Down and Shut Up provides a frank evaluation of the broken classrooms of America and offers a bold strategy for fixing them.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

God wants His children to wake up, stand up and grow up! This book contains poems covering various life experiences that affect God's children. God wants us to behave responsibly, put away selfishness and make it our urgent business to save souls. I've included my personal account of how I kept resisting God and finally ended up painting myself into a corner. My aim is to encourage others who have not yet started a relationship with Christ, to get to know Him. When we try to live life without Him, we will never, ever experience true peace. In recent years I found myself thinking more deeply about God and I wanted Him to tell me what He expects from His children, so I asked Him. Well, imagine being woken in the early hours one Saturday morning with the poem 'Shut Up, Sit Down and Listen!' in my head. I picked up the note pad beside my bed, I held the pencil, but I was not the writer. "Rescue others by snatching them from the flames of judgment.” – Jude One

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Stumbling back to his corner after barely surviving a round's worth of punishment and submission attempts from a hard-hitting opponent, Dave "Meanberg" Greenberg hears his MMA coach bellow unexpected words: "Sit down! Shut up! You're gonna win this thing!"These words echo far beyond Dave's first amateur cage fight to become a recurring theme in his challenging life. Little did he know then, but this would just be the start of fighting for his life and coming out on top. He learns that his determination and grit can overpower not only opponents in the cage, but also life-threatening car accidents, injuries that compromise his dream of fighting again, and losses that penetrate deeper than his physical wounds. What starts out as a glimpse into the life of an MMA fighter transforms into a journey of growing up and finding oneself by confronting adversity. Dave's story reminds us that we are far more capable than we give ourselves credit for.

The basis for the new Amazon Prime Original Series! Perfect for fans of E.T. and Stranger Things—the first narrative artbook from acclaimed author and artist Simon Stålenhag about a fictionalized suburban town in the 1980s inhabited by fantastic machines and strange, imaginative beasts.

The local population called this marvel of technology The Loop. These are its strange tales. From the same author who wrote the imaginative artbook The Electric State, this “haunting,” (The Verge) “sophisticated sci-fi” (The Nerdist) follows the bizarre stories from otherworldly creatures and is a page-turner you won’t be able to put down.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

In the last few years I've read rants against the evils of feminism from some of the top Evangelical and Fundamentalist Christian leaders who blame women wanting to go to work, go into ministry, and be equals to their husbands for all the social ills happening in our country. If women would just stay home divorce rates would plummet, no abortions would happen, public schools wouldn't be in trouble, and all the world's ills would come to an end. There's just one little problem: Does the Bible really say all of that? What You Didn't Learn in Sunday School will introduce you to women in the Bible who: Were religious leaders. Disobeyed their husbands to obey Godde. Had careers. Made their own decisions. And guess what? The world did not end. Eight verses have been used to make women second-class citizens, and at times, virtual slaves to their husbands. The rest of the Bible is full of stories of strong women who led their families, their people, and their countries.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Innocently stumbling into the field of education at the last minute, Roger Wong discovered teaching had many rewards, and over the years, he developed a visceral love for his chosen occupation. But sometimes, his job did not love him back! Unruly students, arrogant administrators, and even life-threatening classroom situations befell him. Unreasonable, impossible school reforms, racial dilemmas, and an unshakeable fear of failure permeated his semi-illustrious thirty-four-year career. He even endured a classroom full of fourteen-year-olds during a major earthquake! And survived! Yet none of this averted his resolve to equip his students with a quality curriculum or his best effort at terrific teaching. Paranormal classroom happenings? Not a chance. Tuna fish and human hair sandwiches? No way. A bursting bladder? Think again. Instead, he found himself developing lifelong friendships with staff members, an intrinsic feeling of accomplishment through helping students succeed, and even experiencing romance in the classroom. (It may not be what you are thinking!) This book is what teaching in a public classroom is really like, without any excuses or apologies, and without wearing the rosy lenses of societal stereotypes. It’s a frank look inside the mind and classroom of one rather insignificant, average, individual teacher. He struggled to be the best he could be, sometimes succeeding, and sometimes failing in unimaginable fashion.
