From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Stranger Beside Me comes a shocking true crime account of the destructive forces that drove a beautiful young mother to shoot her three young children in cold blood. "Somebody just shot my kids!" Diane Downs brought her car to a halt in front of a Springfield, Oregon, hospital, her three gravely wounded children beside her. Thus begins the tale of a truly unthinkable crime that shattered the tranquility of a tight-knit community. As police searched for the "shaggy-haired stranger" Diane accused of shooting 8-year-old Christie, 7-year-old Cheryl, and 3-year-old Danny, a suspicion grew that was even more horrifying than the crime itself: Did Diane shoot her own children? Haunted by this question, a dedicated district attorney searched for the answer and uncovered a chronology of incest, psychological wounding, desperate affairs, and surrogate motherhood. Ann Rule's gripping, powerful, and ultimately terrifying true story of passion and murder will hold you in thrall as it plumbs the unimagined depths of darkness concealed within a human being.

Sourena Dreams Big and Strives to Achieve “What's the big deal?” you may ask. “A lot of people dream big and strive to achieve their goals.” But you haven't met Sourena. Three decades ago, Sourena Vasseghi was born with severe cerebral palsy—a handicap that's limited his physical abilities but not his dreams and determination. “Luckily, the dreamer inside me knew there was an alternative to blaming my handicap. But like a needle in a haystack, I had to find it.” That, he believed, would give him everything in life—money, career, wife, kids, and a sense of accomplishment. Yet Sourena's profound physical limitations—including a speech impediment that makes his words difficult to understand—rendered his prospects slim. Despair crept in. Not surprisingly, part of Sourena wanted to stuff his dreams into a closet. Thankfully, his inner wisdom and resolve triumphed. He found that “needle” for himself—and potentially for you, too. Sourena realized that “anytime I use my handicap as an excuse for not achieving my dreams, I lose control. It's as if I'm asking the world to take care of me because I don't want to make the right sacrifices.” Since then, the activity behind this belief has fueled Sourena's success as an author, speaker, consultant, and a husband and father. As you strive to manifest your dreams, what sacrifices do you refuse to make? Follow Sourena's example in Big Dreams Take Small Sacrifices to strip away your excuses and embrace what he now knows—that sacrifice is payment for a dream.

Since its initial publication and multiple reprints in hardcover in 2005, Teachers Have It Easy has attracted the attention of teachers nationwide, appearing on the New York Times extended bestseller list, C-SPAN, and NPR's Marketplace, in addition to receiving strong reviews nationwide. Now available for the first time in paperback, this groundbreaking book examines how bad policy makes teachers' lives miserable. Many teachers today must work two or more jobs to survive; they cannot afford to buy homes or raise families. Interweaving teachers' voices from across the country with hard-hitting facts and figures, this book is a clear-eyed view of the harsh realities of public school teaching, without chicken-soup-for-the-soul success stories. With a look at the problems of recruitment and retention, the myths of short workdays and endless summer vacations, the realities of the work week, and shocking examples of how society views America's teachers, Teachers Have It Easy explores the best ways to improve public education and transform our schools.

GIFTED WITH A BRILLIANT MIND, BLESSED WITH A BEAUTIFUL FAMILY -- AND CURSED WITH A DESTRUCTIVE MADNESS In this harrowing New York Times bestseller, Ann Rule is at her masterful best as she winnows horrific truths from the ashes of what seemed like paradise in Prairie Village, Kansas. Rule probes the case of Debora Green, a doctor and a loving mother who seemed to epitomize the dreams of the American heartland. A small-town girl with a genius IQ, she achieved an enviable life: her own medical practice, a handsome physician husband, three perfect children, and an opulent home in an exclusive Kansas City suburb. But when a raging fire destroyed that home and took two lives, the trail of clues led investigators to a stunning conclusion. Piece by piece, Ann Rule digs beneath this placid Midwestern facade to unveil a disturbing portrait of strangely troubled marriages, infidelity, desperation, suicide, and escalating acts of revenge that forever changed dozens of lives.
