David Rush takes beginning playwrights through the first draft of a play and deep into the revision process. Drawing on examples from such classics as Othello and The Glass Menagerie, Rush provides detailed models for writers to evaluate their work for weaknesses and focus on the in-depth development of their plays. Rush encourages writers to make sure their plays are clear and focused. He shows how to keep plays dramatically compelling and offers ways to avoid common mistakes that make them dull, confusing, or ineffective. He then distills the essence of traditional revision into key questions and discusses frequently overlooked tools, terms, and strategies that go beyond established methods of evaluation.

Christian psychologist David Hawkins writes, A healthy self-image is perhaps the most important component of a person's character. He uses everyday language to describe what positive self-image is, what it is not, and how parents can help their kids develop a Christlike confidence without conceit. Parents will learn how to assess their children's self-image and how to help them know... [They are loved and accepted by God and their family and friends. [They can safely explore their world and learn new things. [They are welcome in their family, church, and neighborhood. [They can be ambitious and determined, and they can be leaders. [They have positive physical, mental, and spiritual attributes. Readers will find clear and practical suggestions as Dr. Hawkins describes children's psychological needs, habits that can harm children's self-image, and ways to help their children build a healthy self-image.

Lead each person on your team up the learning curve. What's the secret to having an engaged and productive team? It's having a plan for developing all employees--no matter where they are on their personal learning curves. Better morale and higher performance happen through learning, argues Whitney Johnson. In over twenty years of coaching, investing, and consulting, Johnson has seen that employees need continuous learning and fresh challenges to stay motivated. The best bosses know this, and they know how to make it happen by thoughtfully designing people’s jobs around the skills they have today as well as the skills they'll need to be even more valuable tomorrow. That's how entire organizations stay competitive in an unpredictable, rapidly changing business environment. In this book, Johnson explains how to become one of those bosses and how to build your A-team by: Identifying what your employees already know and what they need to learn Designing their jobs to maximize engagement and learning Applying a seven-step process for leading each person up their learning curve We all want opportunities to learn, experiment, and grow in our jobs. When our bosses work with us to help us leap to new challenges, the result is a team that knows how to thrive, no matter what the future holds.
