Early in my career I felt driven to write a book about my experiences as a newly qualified microelectronics engineer. Something about the holistic nature of engineering had me buy my first journal and write the first few pages. As my career developed and I moved into management (I was a terrible designer), I bought more journals and started writing this book again and again. More than 25 years of inspiring change and growth in companies large and small and 30 incomplete journals, I finally started Corporate Caterpillars - How to Grow Wings. This book does not profess to make the business of business easy. It is not modeled on a single analogy like the transformation from caterpillar to butterfly, nor does it reduce the concept to a set of simple steps. What it does strive to do is to recognize the richness of reasons why we often seem to be left with few choices. This book shows how to move from a world of limited options to a realm of limitless possibilities, whether for an individual or for an enterprise. This book is designed to inspire. It provides a kind of "blueprint" you can use to create your own individual and corporate transformation to move from limited to limitless. Everything shows up exactly when it is supposed to. You are holding this book perhaps because you feel that either you or your company is stuck in some way. As an individual maybe you have caught yourself repeating a pattern to sabotage your efforts to get to where you want to be. Perhaps you are a CEO, CFO, president, vice president, department manager, or project leader. Probably you are a business leader in a position to effect change in your organization; maybe your enterprise is a small family business or an international conglomerate. It matters not whether your company is a for-profit or a not-for profit, a public or a private enterprise, this book will help you transform both you and your company.

Sent by their mother to live with their devout, self-sufficient grandmother in a small Southern town, Maya and her brother, Bailey, endure the ache of abandonment and the prejudice of the local “powhitetrash.” At eight years old and back at her mother’s side in St. Louis, Maya is attacked by a man many times her age–and has to live with the consequences for a lifetime. Years later, in San Francisco, Maya learns about love for herself and the kindness of others, her own strong spirit, and the ideas of great authors (“I met and fell in love with William Shakespeare”) will allow her to be free instead of imprisoned. Poetic and powerful, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings is a modern American classic that will touch hearts and change minds for as long as people read. From the Paperback edition.

Cossette Consistently Brings the Old Testament to Life in an Engrossing, Fresh New Way Alanah, a Canaanite, is no stranger to fighting and survival. When her family is killed in battle with the Hebrews, she disguises herself and sneaks onto the battlefield to avenge her family. The one thing she never counted on was surviving. Tobiah, a Hebrew warrior, is shocked to find an unconscious, wounded woman among the Canaanite casualties. Compelled to bring her to a Hebrew healer back at their camp, he is soon confronted with a truth he can't ignore: the only way to protect this enemy is to marry her. Unused to being weak and vulnerable, Alanah submits to the marriage--for now. As she comes to know and respect Tobiah and his people, however, she begins to second-guess her plans of escape. But when her past has painfully unanticipated consequences, the tentative peace she's found with Tobiah, the Hebrews, and Yahweh is shaken to the core. Can Alanah's fierce heart and strength withstand the ensuing threats to her life and all she's come to love?
