"Rabbit holes" are, by my definition, those secret places to which we all go to escape the occasional drudgery or unpleasantness of everyday existence. Each vignette in this book is designed to take you down a new rabbit hole to a place you wish to be or, on occasion, to a place you may need to be, whether or not it is obvious to you. The stories are flights of fancy, daydreams put to paper, designed to ignite your imagination and awaken that part of your brain grown stagnant by the predictability of everyday life. But these aren't stories you simply read; each of the forty rabbit holes in this collection is written in the second person making you, the reader, the central character. You will be an integral part of each story you read.

"Many students ask, 'What is the point of learning formal logic?' This book gives them the answer. Using the methods of deductive logic, Nelson Lande introduces each new element in exquisite detail, as he takes students through example after example, proof after proof, explaining the thinking behind each concept. Shaded areas and appendices throughout the book provide explanations and justifications that go beyond the main text, challenging those students who wish to delve deeper, and giving instructors the option of confining their course to the basics, or expanding it, when they wish, to more rigorous levels. Lande encourages students to think for themselves, while at the same time providing them with the level of explanation they need to succeed. It is a rigorous approach presented in a style that is informal, engaging, and accessible. Students will come away with a solid understanding of formal logic and why it is not only important, but also interesting and sometimes even fun. It is a text that brings the human element back into the teaching of logic." --Hans Halvorson, Princeton University

This book questions some of our most ingrained assumptions, not only about the nature of teaching and learning, but about what constitutes education, and about the cultural determinants of what is taught. What if who you think you are profoundly affects what and how you learn? Since Descartes, teachers in the Western tradition have dismissed the role of self in learning. What if our beliefs about self and learning are wrong, and relevance of knowledge to self actually enhances learning, as current research suggests? Jane Fried deconstructs the Grand Western Narrative of teaching and learning, describing it is a cultural fishbowl through which we see the world, rarely aware of the fishbowl itself, be it disciplinary constructs or the definition of liberal education. She leads us on a journey to question “the way things are”; to attend to the personal narratives of others from ethnic, racial and faith groups different from ourselves; to rediscover self-authorship as the core task of learning in college; and to empower ourselves and students to navigate the disorientation of the Alice in Wonderland rabbit holes of modern life. This is a book for all educators concerned about the purpose of college and of the liberal arts in the 21st century, and what it is we should reasonably expect students to learn. Jane Fried both upends many received ideas and offers constructive insights based on science and evidence, and does so in an engaging way that will stimulate reflection.

Corrie Weber has kept a secret for years: she talks to angels. Or, rather, angels talk to her, and have since she was a child. There's nothing subtle about visits from her winged messengers except the messages themselves. Their method of delivery is usually unwelcome and frequently unpleasant. Corrie records their communication in a journal and tries to work out the meaning of it all. While it seems like recent changes in her life are moving her in the right direction, Corrie feels like she's losing her way. She seeks clarity through the angels' insight but encounters difficulty. Will the angels provide comfort and guidance, or will they complicate matters even more?

If your COO or CEO had the time to be your mentor, they'd be telling you not to waste your time on what doesn't work. This book is a light, practical look at leadership and the ways you can identify and avoid ineffective behaviors. If you are a leader or develop leadership programs, does any of this seem familiar? * I can't tell if my leadership style is effective. * I do everything right, but I'm still not getting ahead. * The last time I saw my boss was during my evaluation 3 months ago. * My boss is a jerk, but senior management doesn't care. They think he is just ambitious. * We have a high turnover of employees. * If any of the senior staff left tomorrow, the company would collapse.

Falling down the corporate rabbit hole can be good for your career.In today's rapidly changing business world it's difficult to know how to compete. How do we innovate; what strategies should we pursue in order to stand out from our rivals; just how can one keep up - let alone get ahead - in this maddeningly volatile environment? It turns out that the larger-than-life characters, arbitrary rules and nonsensical situations of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass can help us navigate the new era of business.Carroll's books are a window onto today's business world. They teach us that rules are invented by those in charge to suit a situation, that authority can be questioned and that white rabbits often wear waistcoats. If you regularly take part in meetings, the Mad Hatter's tea party - messy, seemingly eternal and completely pointless - might seem all too familiar. In Alice in strategy land readers will discover:* How to manage the unexpected, with the help of Alice, a flamingo and a hedgehog;* Ways to speed up time, using the wisdom of the Hatter;* How to avoid running so hard just to stand still, with the Red Queen's assistance;* Why the White Knight can help them to focus on what's important.Thinking outside the box is no longer sufficient. Alice in Strategy Land shows managers and managed alike how to turn Carroll's surreal imagination to their advantage.

Lessons learned during a study on the effects that electrical power and signal wiring harness cables introduce on the dynamic response of precision spacecraft is presented, along with the most significant results. Our study was a three year effort to discover a set of practical approaches for updating well-defined dynamic models of harness-free structures where knowledge of the cable type, position, and tie-down method are known. Although cables are found on every satellite, the focus was on precision, low damping, and very flexible structures. Obstacles encountered, classified as tangents, rabbit holes, and dead ends, offer practical lessons for structural dynamics research. The paper traces the historical, experiential progression of the project, describing how the obstacles affected the project. Methods were developed to estimate cable properties. Problems were encountered because of the flexible, highly damped nature of cables. A beam was used as a test article to validate experimentally derived cable properties and to refine the assumptions regarding boundary conditions. Furthermore, a spacecraft bus-like panel with cables attached was designed, and finite element models were developed and validated through experiment. Various paths were investigated at each stage before a consistent test and analysis methodology was developed.

'Joe Soap' combines narrative and lyric forms to trace a historical pattern reaching from the First World War to contemporary apocalypse. Both are remarkable additions to an important body of work.
