Abstract
As boys reach adolescence, everything changes: their bodies, their feelings, and their relationships. Their world turns shaky just when they find it hardest to talk with the adults in their lives. But even if they won’t say what’s on their mind, they still want straight answers. The Boy’s Body Book provides them, in a readable, reassuring, and illustrated guide. It covers a boy’s every concern: hygiene, exercise, teachers, peer pressure, sex, and siblings. He’ll learn about what’s going on physically (vocal changes, body hair) and how to handle academic pressures, deal with out-of-control feelings, make new friends, and stay safe through it all.

She tells him that the red dot is commonly worn by Hindu women to indicate the point at which creation begins. When he wishes to have one of his own, she agrees to it, and teaches him about its cultural significance, allowing the boy to discover the magic of the bindi, which in turn gives him permission to be more fully himself.

Ray Liu knows he should be happy. He lives in a big suburban house with all the latest electronic gadgets, and even finds plenty of time to indulge in his love of gaming. He needs the escape. It?s tough getting grades that will please his army veteran father, when speaking English is still a struggle. And he can?t quite connect with his peers at high school -- Chinese immigrants like himself but who seem to have adjusted to North American life more easily.
Then comes the fateful day when his father accesses Ray?s internet account, and discovers Ray has been cruising gay websites. Before Ray knows what has hit him, his belongings have been thrown on the front lawn, and he has been kicked out.
Angry,defiant, Ray heads to downtown Toronto. In short order he is robbed, beaten up and seduced, and he learns the hard realities of life on the street. Could he really sell himself for sex? Lots of people use their bodies to make money -- athletes, actors, models, pop singers. If no one gets hurt, why should anyone care?

Abstract
Fibromyalgia, chronic myofascial pain, and chronic fatigue are often seen as interchangeable conditions, a belief held even by many health care providers. Nothing could be further from the truth-however, they do often coexist. Knowing if more than one of these disorders is present is extremely important, because the treatment for one of them can often exacerbate the problems caused by the others. Written by a registered nurse and a psychologist who has been treating these conditions since 1994, this book presents an integrative medical approach to these three disorders with a strong emphasis on utilizing and strengthening the mind-body connection to restore well-being. The authors begin with clear diagnostic guidelines for each condition and reference the latest scientific research on what causes these illnesses. Because many medical practitioners are relatively unfamiliar with these disorders, it can take several medical visits to arrive at a definitive diagnosis. Clear communication with medical personnel is key to diagnostic success. This book provides invaluable advice on how to describe symptoms, document health history, and keep a log of medical appointments. Included are interactive worksheets to facilitate these activities. The authors provide a thorough guide to numerous treatment options-from diet, exercise, and herbs to mindfulness meditation, yoga, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). They also offer techniques to dispel the "brain fog" that these illnesses can create, offer guidance on the psychological issues that accompany these chronic pain disorders, and provide advice on how to build a personal support team. The final chapter gives advice on how to navigate the health care system, including step-by-step instructions for preparing an application to the Social Security Administration for disability benefits. An extensive resource section provides a wealth of contact information for helpful agencies and organizations, good sources for medical supplies, and a wide selection of suggested further reading. In short, this integrative treatment guide will open the door not only to physical recovery but also to emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.

This book shows parents and teachers how to help boys overcome their current classroom obstacles by helping to create the proper learning environment, understand how to help boys work with their unique natural gifts, nurture and expand every bit of their potential, and enabling them to succeed in life the way they ought to. The author presents a way of solving the problem based on the success of his program in schools across the country, the latest research and application of neuro-biological research on how boys' brains actually work and how they can learn very well if they're properly taught.

Inspired by the author's son, and by her own initial struggles to understand, this is a heart-warming book about unconditional love and one remarkable family. It is also a call for tolerance and an end to bullying and judgments. The world is a brighter place when we accept everyone for who they are.

Children spend a lot of time debating with each other over what makes a boy a boy and a girl a girl. It's a time of choices. It's a time of creating themselves. It could be a time for blending and embracing the many ways they express themselves, but it is too often a time of narrowing the possibilities of who they can be. This book enters into this conversation and opens it up. It is the story of a child thinking through who she is, a child learning through her mother's love how to be both strong and soft.

Abstract
The "primes" are universal and unavoidable patterns of group behavior that emerge whenever people attempt to transform systems or collaborate to solve complex problems. Every change agent has felt their effect, but few can recognize, anticipate, and manage them. Unacknowledged, the primes can put any leadership agenda at risk. Once mastered, the primes become a force that drives intended outcomes. The Primes is a field manual for anyone ready to step up to serious challenges, predict and manage inevitable problems, create a brighter future, and produce extraordinary results.
An essential guide for 21st century problem solvers and change agents, The Primes unveils 46 universal secrets of how to:
Tackle complex problems successfully and deliver extraordinary results on time
Forge lasting consensus among competing interests and keep teams focused and productive
Recognize and eliminate the most destructive forces in an organization
Establish cultures of integrity
The Primes gives leaders the edge they need to succeed. Once the primes are revealed, you'll see them everywhere!

Poor Duncan just wants to color. But when he opens his box of crayons, he finds only letters, all saying the same thing: His crayons have had enough! They quit! Beige Crayon is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown Crayon. Black wants to be used for more than just outlining. Blue needs a break from coloring all those bodies of water. And Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking - each believes he is the true color of the sun. What can Duncan possibly do to appease all of the crayons and get them back to doing what they do best?
