Book Summary:

Many of today's parents struggle with their approach in raising a healthy daughter within our complex culture. Never before have girls been faced with so many pressures to live up to confusing and often contradictory cultural expectations. These burdens are intense, newly evolving, and are affecting girls at earlier and earlier ages. As girls of all ages listen to the messages of popular culture, they gather that their worth is based upon a perfect appearance, the ability to gain attention and approval from others, and their accrual of accomplishments. As girls absorb these expectations, they begin to believe they are not good enough as they are. They are not able to develop an authentic sense of self because they lose themselves in trying to become what the culture dictates. It is not surprising that with all of these pressures, girls are experiencing stress, emptiness, and skyrocketing rates of mental health problems. Parents know that something is very wrong with today's culture, but they can't quite put a name on the problem. Many feel helpless as popular cultural influences pervade modern life at every turn. This book, however, provides parents with reassurance that their influence can make a significant difference in their daughters' development. Parents are empowered to make positive choices to help girls learn to resist cultural pressures and to successfully navigate the transitions they will face in their journey as girls in today's culture. Written in an engaging, practical style, Laura Choate draws from research and counseling literature to provide parents with tools they can use to teach their daughters the power of resilience. The book begins with a portrait of the contemporary adolescent girl's environment, including an in-depth exploration of cultural pressures and an overview of how these pressures influence girls' physical, cognitive, and social development. In the second part of the book, parents learn about five resilience dimensions that girls need not only to survive, but to thrive as they develop during girlhood and adolescence. Practical tools for instilling resilience regarding girls' positive body image, healthy relationships with friends and romantic partners, and management of high-pressure academic environments through a redefinition of what it means to be successful are all discussed extensively.

Book Summary:

Shirley Zinn's story is one of determination, courage, and triumph over incredible adversity. Born and raised on the Cape Flats, Shirley never allowed her past to dictate her future. She proved that the typical story of a girl from the Cape Flats - that of gangsterism, alcoholism and teenage pregnancy - didn't have to be her story. Instead she relentlessly pursued her own goals and forged an impressive academic career even when she faced significant odds. And when she'd done that, she set out to conquer the world of business. Shirley is a formidable woman with an amazing story to tell. She has risen to the top of the pile in both academic and business circles, and yet she has retained great humanity and empathy in the face of great personal tragedy. Her story has lessons for us all - whether we are ordinary or extraordinary, whether we work in business, in government, or at home. Shirley's story will inspire you and show you that it is possible to achieve your goals, if you are prepared to swim upstream and be single-minded in getting where you want to be. Shirley, who holds an M.Ed from the University of the Western Cape and a D.Ed from Harvard, was awarded the Top Woman in Business and Government and Top Executive in Corporate South Africa by Topco Media in 2008. She was recognised by the Black Business Quarterly and received the award for Top Woman in Business and Government and most Visionary Woman in 2008. Shirley Zinn, serviced as HR Director for SARS, Nedbank and Standard Bank.

Book Summary:

In recent years, water resource management in the United States has begun a shift away from top-down, government agency-directed decision processes toward a collaborative approach of negotiation and problem solving. Rather than focusing on specific pollution sources or specific areas within a watershed, this new process considers the watershed as a whole, seeking solutions to an interrelated set of social, economic, and environmental problems. Decision making involves face-to-face negotiations among a variety of stakeholders, including federal, state, and local agencies, landowners, environmentalists, industries, and researchers. Swimming Upstream analyzes the collaborative approach by providing a historical overview of watershed management in the United States and a normative and empirical conceptual framework for understanding and evaluating the process. The bulk of the book looks at a variety of collaborative watershed planning projects across the country. It first examines the applications of relatively short-term collaborative strategies in Oklahoma and Texas, exploring issues of trust and legitimacy. It then analyzes factors affecting the success of relatively long-term collaborative partnerships in the National Estuary Program and in 76 watersheds in Washington and California. Bringing analytical rigor to a field that has been dominated by practitioners' descriptive accounts, Swimming Upstream makes a vital contribution to public policy, public administration, and environmental management.

Book Summary:

Swimming Upstream By: James P. McCullough, Jr. Swimming Upstream: A Story about Becoming Human is a memoir divided into two parts. Part One is a personal story of the author’s toxic early developmental experiences and the subsequent effects of chronic depression, as well as the specific life experiences that enabled him to modify his early maladaptive history and mature. Part Two is a history and description of the author’s forty-seven-year career as an academic clinical psychologist and his research with chronic depression. His therapy model, The Cognitive Behavioral Analysis System of Psychotherapy (CBASP), is the only treatment model designed specifically to treat the chronically depressed patient. CBASP has been personally used by the author to treat 450 chronically depressed patients; therefore, Swimming Upstream is essentially a story of a life trajectory of hope.

Book Summary:

A social and political activist and a free-thinker, Laxmanshastri Joshi, though a relatively lesser known figure in Indian history, played a significant role in the freedom struggle. Joshi was an ardent supporter of the satyagraha movement. He counselled Gandhi to overcome his conflicts against the upper classes in bringing the marginalized untouchables into the mainstream. His scholarship reflected his knowledge of Sanskrit and the Vedas as well as Marx’s philosophy of building a just society. Ambedkar, too, sought Joshi’s help in drafting the constitution of democratic India. Swimming Upstream is not merely a biography of Joshi but captures in a microcosm the transitional throes of South Asian society from tradition to modernity. This work traces the journey of Joshi from being an orthodox Vedic scholar to becoming a radical social reformer and an atheist. The authors also evaluate and locate Joshi’s critique of Marathi and Dalit literature. As a humanist, his innovative arguments transcended conventions instead of bowing to them. Appraising Joshi’s contribution towards the creation of a free and secular India, M.N. Roy, one of his contemporaries, described him as ‘one of the finest products of the Indian renaissance’.

Book Summary:

In 1898 a 16-year-old immigrant with a sixth-grade education and not much more than the clothes on his back landed in Boston. By 1906, this immigrant, Michael Foley, had started a fresh fish company. In 2005, Michael Foley's great-granddaughter, Laura, together with Peter, her co-owner husband, became the fourth generation to own and operate the Foley Fish Company, the seafood industry's standard for quality, consistency, and integrity. Swimming Upstream is the story of four generations of Foley fishmongers, their successes and failures, their talents and foibles. Each generation has met the changing needs of the business in its own way, but in four generations, the goal set by the founder to provide customers only truly fresh, delicious, nutritious seafood has never been compromised. Swimming Upstream is more than the story of a family and a business. It is an immigrant's story of Boston in the early 1900s. Michael Foley arrived when "No Irish need apply" signs were posted, but in spite of this his son Francis graduated from Harvard College. This is the story of the daunting challenges faced by the Foleys in producing a highly perishable product with highly variable pricing, and the many loyal and talented employees who enabled them to meet innumerable challenges through two World Wars, the Depression, resource depletion, and now the Covid pandemic. It is about competing with producers who added water-weight to lower prices, or substitute species to average down costs. It is the story of the vagaries of U.S. fisheries management and Foley Fish's efforts to support the resource. It is also the story of Foley Fish's attempt to educate the consumer, and even chefs, on how to care for and prepare fish, and to assure the public that truly fresh fish doesn't smell fishy.

Book Summary:

In Swimming Upstream, Christine Roush offers her story as one who earns and spends money as the typical canvas on which so many families paint their lives. As she grows in her understanding and fiscal discipline, she learns that the apostle Paul's invitation to not be conformed to the pattern of this world any longer is an invitation for all followers of Jesus to begin swimming against the currents of our consumer culture. Christine invites the reader to join her swim team. Chris fills the pages with stories from her own life and those offered by friends, thoughtful questions, and resources for further information. In a time of economic downturn her book offers hope. In a time of prosperity her book reminds the reader of what really matters. "I am becoming convinced that not only does the broad concept of stewardship need to be restored in the church, but that the practice of biblical stewardship in this consumer society is essential to healthy spiritual formation. Chris's book is an important step towards learning to be faithful Christ-followers in our day and time. Don't be deceived by the friendly and approachable nature of this text; it is rooted in excellent research. It has been a privilege to journey with Chris in the preparation of this study. My prayer is that the hard work represented in these words bears fruit for the Church and God's kingdom." - Dr Daniel L Brunner Professor of Christian History and Formation George Fox Evangelical Seminary "Chris asks those questions we all think about as we go through life's journey and helps us see what scripture and life have to teach us about stewardship. Good Stuff!" -Robert J. Crandall, CFRE I challenge you to find a more timely book than this one. As the collapse of Wall Street on 09/08 proved, the god of the market is not only a false god. The god of the market is now dead. Read here why, and what we can do to worship the one and only true God. -Leonard Sweet, Drew University, George Fox University, sermons.com. In Swimming Upstream, Chris Roush bares her heart, mind, and soul as she describes the anxiety and personal struggles that accompanied her and her family as they were swept downstream by the relentless forces of American consumerism. . . . The book points to an alternative way-a way to move from anxiety and greed to divine abundance, which, for Chris, is epitomized in Romans 12:1-2. It is the road of Christian discipleship. -Dr. Ronald E. Vallet, executive director (retired) Ecumenical Stewardship Center "Reading Chris' story led me to retrace much of my own personal history and coming to terms with how to swim against the Consumer culture. Anyone wanting their household to be a legacy for the kingdom of God benefits from time spent with this book." -mark l. vincent, Ph.D. CEO/Design Group International

Book Summary:

After too many vodka tonics at her best friend's baby shower, twenty-seven-year-old Sasha finds herself having a ladies' room epiphany. How quickly life can change, she thinks to herself: one minute she's writing a master's thesis about a TV comedy show for kids–and the next, the program actually gets optioned with her as the star. But Sasha’s awe at the twists of fate proves to be premature. The real shock comes the next day, when her routine visit to the ob-gyn reveals that she’s pregnant—even though she hasn't slept with anyone in more than two years. To her unbelieving ears comes the doctor’s diagnosis: Sasha’s body has unwittingly hosted a cellular hitchhiker, a medical anomaly known as “lazy sperm.” And now that this plodding genetic contribution has finally fulfilled its destiny, it will be up to Sasha to summon the courage to revisit her past loves even as her future slowly takes shape inside her. Which of her exes will be the father and how will he take the astounding news? And what will the end of the mystery mean to Sasha? The answers are revealed in this wonderfully inventive debut about the bonds that linger between people even after they part ways, and how the future can change in the twitch of a tail.

Book Summary:

As an experienced pediatrician, Sajjad Iqbal, MD, had long enjoyed using his medical expertise to treat children's illnesses and alleviate their parents' concerns. Suddenly, however, he was on the other side of the divide. As Iqbal began to battle severe facial paralysis, misguided and obstinate doctors became an obstacle to finding a correct diagnosis and treatment. Iqbal's doctors believed that he had Bell's palsy, a temporary, benign condition. But Iqbal rejected that theory. He knew enough about medicine and his own body to suspect a far more deadly cause-cancer of the parotid (salivary) glands. Initially, Iqbal couldn't convince the so-called experts to listen and his doctors rushed forward with a flawed treatment plan including unnecessary surgery. Given a 30 percent chance of living two years-he has survived 15 years, overcoming repeated recurrences of cancer by charting his own course of treatment. In this extraordinary memoir, Iqbal recounts how he advocated for his health and relentlessly fought for a correct diagnosis. As he reveals how he unraveled this medical mystery, facing repeated setbacks, you will be inspired to take charge of your own healthcare. Iqbal's experiences convincingly show the importance of speaking up and pushing back against medical professionals' apathy and arrogance.

Book Summary:

Swimming Upstream is a remarkable life story. Born in 1922 into a Viennese Jewish family, T. Scarlett Epstein was catapulted into immediate adulthood by the Austrian Anschluss. She had to learn to think on her feet in order to save herself and her family from the nightmares of the Holocaust. Her dangerous escape route took her from Yugoslavia to Albania; finally, after a terrifying flight via Germany, she arrived in England. Her ambitions to become a surgeon were dashed as she found herself sitting at a sewing machine in one of the many sweatshops in London. She attended night school and was awarded a scholarship to study for an economics degree. Days before her final exams she was severely burned in an accident. Unable to write and in excruciating pain, she dictated her exam answers from her hospital bed. Unlucky in love, she concentrated on her work and spent two years in Indian villages as part of her doctoral studies, which marked the beginning of a brilliant academic career. On her return she met Bill Epstein, love blossomed over the seminar table, and for a time she experienced happiness as never before. The couple had an ideal working partnership that took them to such far-flung places as Papua New Guinea. However, plagued by childlessness and health problems, her private life continued to be a battle. Dr T. Scarlett Epsteinâ??s story of courage and determination, of love and loss will be an inspiration to many.
