The Underdogs Excerpt :

From the writer of the bestselling Dragon Masters series and the illustrator of the bestselling Diary of a Pug series comes a high-energy, illustrated chapter book series about four dogs who learn that being yourself is much more fun than being Best in Show. Welcome to the town of Barksdale, where the canine residents strive for perfection. Every shopkeeper claims to be the "best groomer" or sell the "best biscuits." And at Barksdale Academy, the pressure is on every year for one pup to be named Best in Show. Nova, Duke, Harley, and Peanut have never won Best in Show... which is okay with them! But they have to work together to pass their Agility Exam, because either the whole pack passes or the whole pack fails. Nova has convinced her pals to train, but on her practice course, Duke is afraid to climb the high ramp, Harley keeps chasing squirrels, and Peanut can't make it through the hoops. Nova's not doing much better -- she's so excited she keeps knocking the whole course over! Will the pups make the grade, or are they doomed to be Underdogs forever? With black-and-white illustrations on every page and hilarious antics throughout, this series is perfect for readers who are just starting to read chapter books on their own, or for anyone who loves a good underdog story!

The Underdog Edge Excerpt :

A prominent consultant reveals secrets to help you influence and persuade others—even when you aren’t in a position of power. We all have occasions in which we want or need to persuade someone of greater clout, prestige, or authority to see things our way. There are books that show how to effect change from a leadership position or how to work with peers within your own organization—but what can you do when you need to exert “upward influence” with decision makers who can help you achieve your goals? In this book, a popular speaker and successful consultant with expertise in grassroots efforts shows which tactics are most successful when you’re the underdog. She also shares real-world stories of everyday people who have achieved persuasion success in politics and business with someone up the food chain, the peer-reviewed science behind their success—as well as insights from those whose minds they changed.

Always for the Underdog Excerpt :

Louisiana's Neutral Strip, an area of pine forests, squats between the Calcasieu and Sabine Rivers on the border of East Texas. Early in its history, the region developed a reputation as a harsh frontier where grit and tenacity became indispensable tools of survival. During the Louisiana Purchase, bureaucrats from both Spain and the United States squabbled over the exact boundary line between the two rival powers. Both governments removed militia from the contested land to avoid war. Intensifying its reputation, the region served as an official buffer zone. Without the security of a military presence, residents quickly realized they would need to protect and govern themselves. Soon, tight-knit communities formed, and residents developed a reliance on self, kin, and neighbor. In the early 1900s, the timber boom sliced through the forests of East Texas and the former Neutral Strip, disrupting these dense communities. Mill towns sprang up, and the promise of money lured land speculators, timber workers, unionists, and a host of other characters, such as the outlaw Leather Britches Smith. The entrenched local residents soon confronted not only these new community members but also a dynamic cultural moment that struck a defining blow in the making of the region. That moment continues to shape the place's cultural consciousness, and people fashion a lore connected to this time. In a fascinating exploration of the region, Keagan LeJeune unveils the legend of Leather Britches, paralleling the stages of the outlaw's life to the Neutral Strip's formation. LeJeune retells each stage of Smith's life: his notorious past, his audacious deeds of robbery and even generosity, his rumored connection to a local union strike--the Grabow War--significant in the annals of labor history, and his eventual death. As the outlaw's life vividly unfolds, the book also reveals the area's history and cultural landscape. Often using the particulars of one small town as a representative example, th

Root for the Underdog Excerpt :

Some of my fondest memories in sports have come from games or situations where the impossible becomes reality. As I watched, I had this feeling that I hoped an unlikely athlete would become the hero ofthe moment or an underdog team could pull out an unexpected victory. Some boys and girls only ever have one opportunity to have this feeling, and we all hope that we can be there to share it with them. This book contains the stories of some of these young athletes. I hope you enjoy reading these stories and get the feeling of why it is fun to Root for the Underdog. Sports have been a big part of my life since my childhood days in Levittown, Pa. I enjoyed baseball from my Little League all the way up to high school. I liked so many sports that I was always busy playing something. In high school I lettered in soccer, tennis and basketball. In the summer I pitched softball for several adult teams. At Kutztown University I concentrated on tennis and basketball. After graduating from college I played on a semi-professional basketball team, the Exeter Black Knights, which won the National Amateur Basketball Championship in 1969. I still enjoy watching sports on television and in person - especially when my grandchildren are participating.

Photographer and writer Shawn M. Tomlinson reconsiders the camera brand that got him started long before digital single-lens reflex cameras existed. In this 12th volume of Shawn M. Tomlinson's Guide to Photography, the author outlines the history of the camera maker, its film and digital cameras, and explains why Pentax still is a viable choice for the serious amateur, enthusiast, semi-pro and professional photographer. From the book: "I was a Pentax Loyalist for years, then a Pentax Apologist, then I rather switched that fight it anymore, then I began to re-appreciate Pentax. ... The point was/is that I write these guide books to help the less-than-wealthy budding photographer get the best equipment possible for the lowest prices possible. ... I write this stuff because I know what it's like to yearn for the newest, shiniest cameras and lenses, yet at the same time know that I cannot possibly afford them. I know there are a lot of other people out there who have the same problem."
