Unanticipated Complications

Barrett Collins is more than a bit shocked when the young woman coming on to him in The Jamison was none other than the wayward daughter that Fred Jamison sent him to Vegas to find and bring home. What he wasn’t prepared for was the furious reaction that Fredrika gave him, screaming at him and cursing him as she ran from the lounge and to her room. Barrett decided that the girl needed a damn good dose of discipline and he felt no compunction about following after her and basically forcing himself in her room to take charge of her and put her over his knee for a spanking she would never forget.
Freddy Jamison was positive she’d finally found the right man to relieve her of her virginity. In spite of all the partying she’d done since her college days were over, she’d never come across the right man. She wanted a man who was confident of himself, but gentle and mannerly. She loved the way Barrett’s deep voice caressed her as he saw to it that she was warm enough, that her drink was just perfect, and that she was happy in every way. They talked and he was intelligent, too. He was perfect, and it didn’t hurt matters that he was also handsome as could be. Then she found out that he was her father’s newest henchman! Freddy was highly insulted when she learned that he’d come to Las Vegas to find her and take her home. She wasn’t going to permit her father to run her life, not at the age of twenty-four! Unfortunately, Barrett had different ideas.

True Story: How to Combine Story and Action to Transform Your Business

**Is your company a storyteller—or a story*doer*?**
The old way to market a business was storytelling. But in today’s world, simply communicating your brand’s story in the hope that customers will listen is no longer enough. Instead, your authentic brand must be evident in every action the organization undertakes.
Today’s most successful businesses are story*doers*.
These companies create products and services that, from the very beginning, are manifestations of an authentic and meaningful story—one told primarily through action, not advertising. In *True Story*, creative executive Ty Montague argues that any business, regardless of size or industry, can embrace the principles of storydoing. Indeed, our best-run companies—from small start-ups to global conglomerates—organize around a coherent narrative that is then broadcast through every action they take (from product design to customer service to marketing). Montague shows why storydoing firms are nimble, more adaptive to change, and more efficiently run businesses.
Montague is a founder of the growth consultancy co:collective and the former president and CCO of J. Walter Thompson, the largest advertising agency in North America. He brings his depth of creative business experience to the book and provides a clear framework and proven process for bringing you and your customers together in the creation of your brand story.
Montague introduces five critical elements—what he calls the “the four truths and the action map”—that are the foundation of storydoing:
• the participants (your customers, partners, and employees)
• the protagonist (your company today)
• the stage (the world around your business)
• the quest (your driving ambition and contribution to the world)
• your action map (the actions that will make your story real for participants)
The book is filled with examples of how forward-thinking organizations—including Red Bull, Shaklee, Grind, TOMS Shoes, and News Corporation—are effectively using storydoing to transform their organizations and drive extraordinary results.

**Recensie(s)**

Many years ago my older brother gave me Writing Down the Bones with the inscription, ‘So write already!’ It was for me and for many readers a novel and fresh way to approach writing. I have delighted in Natalie’s books ever since and in her method, having had the chance to see her at work in Taos. The True Secret of Writing is a rich voyage, a priceless distillation of her accumulated wisdom and experience as a writer, coach, and instructor on mindfulness. This lovely volume will have a permanent place on my writing shelf. –Abraham Verghese, author of Cutting for Stone

Treecat Wars

*New York Times* and *Publishers Weekly* Best Selling Young Adult Series. Book Three by international writing phenomenon David Weber. Two young settlers on a pioneer planet seeks to stop a war and to save the intelligent alien treecats from exploitation by unscrupulous humans.
The fires are out, but the trouble’s just beginning for the treecats
On pioneer planet Sphinx, ruined lands and the approach of winter force the now Landless Clan to seek new territory. They have one big problem – there’s nowhere to go. Worse, their efforts to find a new home awaken the enmity of the closest treecat clan – a stronger group who’s not giving up a single branch without a fight
Stephanie Harrington, the treecats’ greatest advocate, is off to Manticore for extensive training – and up to her ears in challenges there. That leaves only Stephanie’s best friends, Jessica and Anders, to save the treecats from themselves. And now a group of xenoanthropologists is once again after the great secret of the treecats – that they are intelligent, empathic telepaths – and their agenda will lead to nothing less that treecat exploitation.
Finally, Jessica and Anders face problems of their own, including their growing attraction to one another. It is an attraction that seems a betrayal of Stephanie Harrington, the best friend either of them have ever had.

A Tour of C++

The C++11 standard allows programmers to express ideas more clearly, simply, and directly, and to write faster, more efficient code. Bjarne Stroustrup, the designer and original implementer of C++, thoroughly covers the details of this language and its use in his definitive reference, *The C++ Programming Language, Fourth Edition*.
In ** *A Tour of C++* **, Stroustrup excerpts the overview chapters from that complete reference, expanding and enhancing them to give an experienced programmer–in just a few hours–a clear idea of what constitutes modern C++. In this concise, self-contained guide, Stroustrup covers most major language features and the major standard-library components–not, of course, in great depth, but to a level that gives programmers a meaningful overview of the language, some key examples, and practical help in getting started.
Stroustrup presents the C++ features in the context of the programming styles they support, such as object-oriented and generic programming. His tour is remarkably comprehensive. Coverage begins with the basics, then ranges widely through more advanced topics, including many that are new in C++11, such as move semantics, uniform initialization, lambda expressions, improved containers, random numbers, and concurrency. The tour ends with a discussion of the design and evolution of C++ and the extensions added for C++11.
This guide does not aim to teach you how to program (see Stroustrup’s *Programming: Principles and Practice Using C++ *for that); nor will it be the only resource you’ll need for C++ mastery (see Stroustrup’s *The C++ Programming Language, Fourth Edition*, for that). If, however, you are a C or C++ programmer wanting greater familiarity with the current C++ language, or a programmer versed in another language wishing to gain an accurate picture of the nature and benefits of modern C++, you can’t find a shorter or simpler introduction than this tour provides.
