Better Left Unsaid is in the unseemly position of defending censorship from the central allegations that are traditionally leveled against it. Taking two genres generally presumed to have been stymied by the censor's knife—the Victorian novel and classical Hollywood film—this book reveals the varied ways in which censorship, for all its blustery self-righteousness, can actually be good for sex, politics, feminism, and art. As much as Victorianism is equated with such cultural impulses as repression and prudery, few scholars have explored the Victorian novel as a "censored" commodity—thanks, in large part, to the indirectness and intangibility of England's literary censorship process. This indirection stands in sharp contrast to the explicit, detailed formality of Hollywood's infamous Production Code of 1930. In comparing these two versions of censorship, Nora Gilbert explores the paradoxical effects of prohibitive practices. Rather than being ruined by censorship, Victorian novels and Hays Code films were stirred and stimulated by the very forces meant to restrain them.

Everything about Maggie's life always seemed to be temporary, from the job she had taken to fill her time when her youngest son, Robbie, went off to first grade...27 years ago...to the apartment in the old Northampton House she had rented just "to get her bearings" after her divorce...and has now lived in for over 15 years. Not that she really objects to this life she has created...so many of her friends, her children, and even her ex-husband, Bill, seem to always be on the way to somewhere, but never anywhere definitive, while Maggie feels oddly content. But when Gabriel Winston, a 40-something research assistant moves into her office, and somehow also into her life, Maggie's sense of transience is suddenly at risk. A further complication is that Maggie suddenly seems to be dating Gregory Barnes, a gerontologist she met at a funeral, of all places, while her daughter, Eliza excitedly plans her mother's 60th birthday, an event Maggie feels perhaps she might rather not celebrate. In the final analysis, life is all about navigating obstacles...or perhaps avoiding them all together...and inevitably there will always be things better left unsaid.

Consumers frequently share stories about consumption experiences with others through word of mouth (WOM). Past research has focused on how hearing WOM influences the listener; I examine how sharing WOM influences the speaker. My proposed model outlines variables that determine storytelling language, predicts how specific language influences speakers' evaluations of experiences, and identifies the process through which language influences speakers. I test this model in five experimental studies and in a field study using Amazon.com data. I find that stories containing relatively more explaining language influence speakers through a process of sense-making. Sense-making helps consumers understand and recover from experiences by allowing them to figure out why experiences occurred and why they liked or disliked them. Making sense of experiences through explaining language has several consequences for consumers. Explaining language can cause paradoxical effects of WOM in terms of consumers' evaluations of experiences and their intentions to repeat and recommend experiences. Explaining positive experiences can decrease speakers' evaluations of experiences, making experiences less positive and decreasing consumers' willingness to repeat and recommend these experiences. Conversely, explaining negative experiences can increase speakers' evaluations of experiences, making experiences less negative and increasing consumers' willingness to repeat and recommend these experiences. In addition, making sense of and explaining experiences decreases consumers' intentions to spread future word of mouth about their experiences.

Here is a book of easy reading poetry that is meant for everyone's pleasure especially someone who likes a good rhyme. More importantly it has a bonus of having social stories in the margins of all the pages of poetry to help a developmentally challenged child understand what is in the text of the poem. Diane has found that social stories are very helpful in teaching her autistic child to understand concepts he may not otherwise be able to understand. These pictures and corresponding text would be a good way to pass on social skills to people like her child. She has found that social skills are at the very root and basis of a meaningful life and help enrich the learning experience. This has helped her child to understand difficult concepts and has worked well in conjunction with the medicine he takes from a well recognized physician. She wants to make as much of this new language as she can. This is her first book and hopefully the first of many.

The fable of the Emperor's New Clothes is a classic example of a conspiracy of silence, a situation where everyone refuses to acknowledge an obvious truth. But the denial of social realities--whether incest, alcoholism, corruption, or even genocide-is no fairy tale. In The Elephant in the Room, Eviatar Zerubavel sheds new light on the social and political underpinnings of silence and denial-the keeping of "open secrets." The author shows that conspiracies of silence exist at every level of society, ranging from small groups to large corporations, from personal friendships to politics. Zerubavel shows how such conspiracies evolve, illuminating the social pressures that cause people to deny what is right before their eyes. We see how each conspirator's denial is symbiotically complemented by the others', and we learn that silence is usually more intense when there are more people conspiring-and especially when there are significant power differences among them. He concludes by showing that the longer we ignore "elephants," the larger they loom in our minds, as each avoidance triggers an even greater spiral of denial. Drawing on examples from newspapers and comedy shows to novels, children's stories, and film, the book travels back and forth across different levels of social life, and from everyday moments to large-scale historical events. At its core, The Elephant in the Room helps us understand why we ignore truths that are known to all of us.

Penelope Williamson’s classic bestseller blends the best of historical western and Amish romance in a sweeping tale “sure to please any fan of good old-fashioned storytelling” (Library Journal). A daughter of the faith…a stranger with a gun…a forbidden love. Throughout the years on her Montana homestead, Rachel Yoder had never been afraid—the creed of the Plain People had been her strength. Then the day came when lawless men killed Rachel’s husband in an act of blind greed. Now, at her darkest hour, an outsider walks across her meadow and into her life… Johnny Cain is bloody, near death, and armed to the teeth. A man hardened by his violent past, Cain has never known a woman like Rachel—someone who offers him a chance to heal more than his physical wounds. Cain’s lazy smile and teasing ways steal Rachel's heart and confound her soul. Soon she must choose between all she holds dear—her faith, her family, perhaps her very salvation—and the man they call the Outsider.

He was born right at the beginning of the “swinging” 1960s in London, England. His family strive to make ends meet, but for a variety of reasons, a few short years later, they move back to Catholic Ireland with his two Irish parents and one sister. There wasn’t much happening in Ireland those days. But tumultuous changes were in the offing as backwoods Ireland was to be transformed into a model of economic and social ideals. In many ways, the author’s story reflects these events as both he and his country are carried along by the tidal wave of progression. This tale follows him from Cosmopolitan London to the most rural of Ireland’s green pastures, into small towns, and then its capital, Dublin. In this, his first book, he attempts to tell his life’s story with not only his country but also the whole wide world as a backdrop to show more clearly the astonishing advancements and the terrible incongruity of mankind as it contrives to kill, maim, and starve each other alongside the destruction of our beautiful planet. And in this, he readily identifies the complex nature of his own character that mirrors in many ways the awful truth about the human condition. It is this duality of his nature that has brought him to this point in his life, to where he stands now today. All of what’s contained between these sheets is factual, but the author fervently wishes they weren’t. But as with the tidal ebb, life goes on and with it hope. And love.
