This selection of essays chronicles "the phenomenon of old media giving way to new, and then being replaced by them, as the ghosts of old media rise in new forms." The sixteenth century will introduce us to early stirrings of photography, as well as the rise of "black lists." The collection begins with an article on documentary film pioneer Robert Flaherty. Barnouw then discusses his Dutch heritage and its role in Western civilization. This is followed by fascinating accounts of ingenious pioneers of camera obscura and magic lantern phantasmagoria, precursors of the magic of motion pictures; an informative brief history of communications breakthroughs; and an examination of the foibles of media censorship. The final articles discuss the importance of Indian filmmaker Satyajit Ray and cinematographer Boris Kaufman.

Larry has worked his way up to his first big assignment as a manager. But now the work is piling up on his desk. His people can’t seem to make decisions—certainly not the right ones. His mentor has been fired. Worst of all, his boss sends him out for leadership training. Larry never thought he needed all that “people skills” stuff to perform, and spouting buzzwords doesn’t seem to work for him, anyway. I’m doing my job, Larry thinks. What does this company want from me? He truly feels lost. After alienating his staff even more and incurring costly time delays, Larry is sent on a forced vacation, which begins with a comic but poignant fishing trip misadventure. Finally, miles from home and work, Larry opens his mind to new ways of thinking about leadership. He learns important leadership lessons in his daily life: planning a family trip, watching his son play ball, fishing with his daughter. He realizes that everyone needs to KNOW, GROW, and OWN, and that being a leader means helping and enabling people to fulfill those needs. At last Larry has a credo that he can believe in, three powerful principles that all managers can use to get the best from themselves and the people around them. Praised by executives and business experts, Lost & Found reveals the core of leadership through the power of an engaging and wonderfully told story. Managers will recognize parts of themselves and people they know in Larry Parks, a smart worker temporarily stymied by a new type of challenge. At the end of the book the authors provide tips for putting the KNOW-GROW-OWN credo to work in different types of jobs and in different kinds of companies and organizations. Combining inspiration and practical advice, Lost & Found will help talented workers transform themselves into great leaders. From the Hardcover edition.

Snowbound in a secluded cabin. Lost in ghosts of the past. Driven by a life unfulfilled. All Blaire Kincaid wants is to make her own way in the world, so she is thrilled when she lands her first private investigative case from a local rich and influential woman. Using her newly acquired PI skillset, Blaire sets out on an eighteen-year-old cold trail to find Reva’s missing nephew—the long-missing heir of the Maximillian MacGlenary estate. But Darian MacGlenary doesn’t want to be found. In fact, when he spies the young woman stumbling into his Appalachian hollow, he panics. Who is she and what does she want? The bearded mountain man has tucked himself far into the backwoods on purpose, and the last thing he wants is a woman nosing around. But when a chilled Blaire stumbles upon his cabin, arriving just hours ahead of an early winter snowstorm that holds them captive for days, things heat up. Darian battles not only the ghosts of his past looming large in the small cabin he calls home, but also the woman who haunts every hot and bothered night they spend together within the cabin’s four walls. Blaire, tormented by the man she’s quickly falling for, and who pushes her away at every turn, tells herself she wants nothing more than to complete her task and collect her final paycheck. That is, until they both surrender to close quarters, long nights, and body heat.

Memoir of an Addict

"Lost and Found" presents an accurate and true account of an addict's life before, during, and after his chronic addiction to drugs-specifically, to crack cocaine. The majority of addicts never get the chance to live in recovery long term. They end up prematurely dead or in a jail due to drug-related crimes. The life of an addict is bleak, unchanging, and spent primarily in denial-denial that there is a problem or that they need help. With addiction being as prevalent as it is, author Stephen C. Waller felt compelled to tell his story as honestly as possible as it relates to his addiction. The journey of an addict is paved with many starts and stops. The addiction dictates their every action, and it fuels their unrealistic sense of self-worth. Until the addict believes that they have a problem, no one can help them. Waller describes the disintegration of his life, from his career as a very successful dentist-a lucrative dental practice that allowed him a new Porsche and a beautiful home-through a downward spiral into addiction and unemployment that left him living with his elderly mother and aunt. He then goes on to consider what factors brought him into long-term recovery. Brutally honest throughout, "Lost and Found" chronicles a journey through the life of an addict, beginning before the active addiction, through the thirty-four years of drug use, and into the following sixteen years of sobriety.

Margaret Mary Murphy was running away from herself again. She didn t realize she had embarked on a dangerous journey of discovery that would start and end in a quaint little village nestled on the coast of Maine. Margaret had just buried her father, the last of her family ties, and needed to escape her life and memories, although memories of her father s comments drew her to Mundy. It was a small village with a long memory of its own. In small towns, everyone is tied to everyone else by blood, marriage, or friendship, and Mundy was no exception. It held more secrets than serenity for Margaret, and it was a place where the past shielded the shenanigans and illegalities of the present. It would prove to be a volatile and lethal sea of deception to which Margaret had escaped to. "
