From debut author and longtime zine-maker Celia C. Pérez, The First Rule of Punk is a wry and heartfelt exploration of friendship, finding your place, and learning to rock out like no one’s watching. There are no shortcuts to surviving your first day at a new school—you can’t fix it with duct tape like you would your Chuck Taylors. On Day One, twelve-year-old Malú (María Luisa, if you want to annoy her) inadvertently upsets Posada Middle School’s queen bee, violates the school’s dress code with her punk rock look, and disappoints her college-professor mom in the process. Her dad, who now lives a thousand miles away, says things will get better as long as she remembers the first rule of punk: be yourself. The real Malú loves rock music, skateboarding, zines, and Soyrizo (hold the cilantro, please). And when she assembles a group of like-minded misfits at school and starts a band, Malú finally begins to feel at home. She'll do anything to preserve this, which includes standing up to an anti-punk school administration to fight for her right to express herself! Black and white illustrations and collage art throughout make The First Rule of Punk a perfect pick for fans of books like Roller Girl and online magazines like Rookie.

A haunting and sure-footed debut by an award-winning writer, The First Rule of Swimming explores the legacy of betrayal and loss in a place where beauty is fused inextricably with hardship, and where individuals are forced to make wrenching choices as they are swept up in the tides of history.

“Don't ignore intuitive tickles lest they reappear as sledgehammers.” That’s the first rule of Ten. Tenzing Norbu (“Ten” for short)-ex-monk and soon-to-be ex-cop-is a protagonist unique to our times. In The First Rule of Ten, the first installment in this major detective series, we meet this spiritual warrior who is singularly equipped, if not occasionally ill-equipped, as he takes on his first case as a private investigator in Los Angeles. Growing up in a Tibetan Monastery, Ten dreamed of becoming a modern-day Sherlock Holmes. So when he was sent to Los Angeles to teach meditation, he joined the LAPD instead. But as the Buddha says, change is inevitable; and ten years later, everything is about to change-big-time-for Ten. One resignation from the police force, two bullet-wounds, three suspicious deaths, and a beautiful woman later, he quickly learns that whenever he breaks his first rule, mayhem follows. Set in the modern-day streets and canyons of Los Angeles, The First Rule of Ten is at turns humorous, insightful and riveting – a gripping mystery as well as a reflective, character-driven story with intriguing life-lessons for us all.

Jean Vanier, founder of L'Arche, author and a great man of faith speaks out: "“This little book can have far-reaching consequences if we learn and live it. Seeking peace is like seeking wisdom. We need help to put order especially into our disordered relationships. Peace is not absence of war. It is to be in communion with those whom we tend to push aside. Peace is not a flower we can pick. It is a loaf of bread which we have to make and bake. We have to work at it. The FIRST RULE of INNER PEACE can help us see what is disordered. Then we can “work at it” so we can eat bread together.” The FIRST RULE of INNER PEACE awakens the sensible part of our soul to see clear, God-centered answers in troubling situations. Then we find the courage to do the right thing. But there is a catch. We must seek inner peace first, before we know the results we will get. It is contrarian, universal and powerfully effective. Based on Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 7:5, The First Rule of Inner Peace is for people who feel: • Anxious and stressed • Frustrated with someone close • Unhappy despite outward success • Hurt by heartaches and loss • A heartfelt desire to grow closer to God Surprisingly, you have already used THE FIRST RULE of INNER PEACE without even noticing. This little book will astonish you. See video and testimonials at www.innerpeacemission.org. Readers from pastors and bishop's to housewives and professionals love the personal impact this book on their lives. It is praised by Christians and non-Christians alike. "I have found myself thinking about this book every day." "Simply amazing. I love it!" "Shares a timeless truth missed by so many people." "Powerful, grace-filled and practical!" "I will be promoting your book everywhere I go." "A simple, profound tool." "My son changed 110%" "...has had a profound impact on me." The FIRST RULE of INNER PEACE is Jesus sensible way to resolve issues and be happy.

Apart from media feeding frenzies sparked by celebrity trials and Special Prosecutors, Colin Briggs, until now, hadn't thought much about our criminal justice system. Life for the attractive, high-profile antique entrepreneur changes when federal agents blind-side him with a surprise visit and threat of an indictment for mail fraud. Suddenly the law and the unbridled power of its enforcers envelop his life. One by one, his reputation and business, his relationship with his fiancée Linda, his confidence in his closest associate and former lover Ginger Cook, and his cherished relationship with friend Joyce Fuller, are endangered as the federal lawyers and the media line up a scenario that goes from improbable to bad to worse. And he doesn't know the half of it. But we do. Don Organ, himself a former New Orleans trial lawyer, skillfully takes us behind the scenes. There, prosecutors, investigators, journalists, elected representatives, justice department bureaucrats, and cutthroat competitors in the river city antique world, all seek to fulfill their own dubious ambitions by nailing Briggs on what he says is a bogus case. World famous restaurants, upscale office towers, the historic French Quarter, and a picturesque Mississippi River ferry all provide the backdrop for Briggs' good life, and become, in Organ's hands, scenes of intrigue and betrayal. In attorney Hobart Rader, Colin Briggs finds his potential savior, but the momentum that gathers behind the conspiracy to break his client challenges even the great Rader. He is confronted with the indifference of lawyers both in and outside the government, Officers of the Court every one, to real justice. Apparently it doesn't take movies or television to bring out the best and the worst in the legal profession. Colin Briggs experiences it all when he finally gets his day in court. In tense and dramatic trial scenes, with surprises and reversals of fortune down to the gavel--and after--Donald Organ shows us what could happen to any of us, and does. ***** With this remarkable first novel Don Organ joins the ranks of John Grisham and Scott Turow. Full of twists and turns that will keep you turning pages, OFFICERS OF THE COURT is a must read. -Peggy Webb Author of WHERE DOLPHINS GO ***** Don Organ's white-collar mystery, OFFICERS OF THE COURT, is a winner. As soon as the FBI confronts Colin Briggs in his office, you know you are in for a gripping tale of how ordinary people can get caught up in the web of the criminal law. You immediately empathize with the main character and feel the same fear, anxiety and curiosity that he does when the FBI comes to call. If they are not coming to arrest, should he answer their questions or show them the door? Should he call his lawyer? If he is innocent of wrongdoing, does he have anything to fear? Thoughts like these raced across my mind. The cat and mouse game between the state and the individual will leave the reader thinking and sweating until the heart-stopping climax. This is a thinking person's book. It will interest anyone working or teaching in the area of criminal justice, as well as anyone who wants an excellent, page-turning read. -Martin L. Needleman, Ph.D. Department of Criminal Justice Bloomsburg University Bloomsburg, PA 17815 ***** "Officers Of The Court" transports us to the world of Franz Kafka where false accusations meet guilt, and betrayal is commonplace. Don Organ's fascinating insider's view of the antique business alone is worth the price of admission. Law and justice collide in this f

First published in 1971, Rules for Radicals is Saul Alinsky's impassioned counsel to young radicals on how to effect constructive social change and know “the difference between being a realistic radical and being a rhetorical one.” Written in the midst of radical political developments whose direction Alinsky was one of the first to question, this volume exhibits his style at its best. Like Thomas Paine before him, Alinsky was able to combine, both in his person and his writing, the intensity of political engagement with an absolute insistence on rational political discourse and adherence to the American democratic tradition.
