NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • An award-winning guide to the sometimes erratic and confusing behavior of teenage girls that explains what’s going on, prepares parents for what’s to come, and lets them know when it’s time to worry. Look for Under Pressure, the companion guide to coping with stress and anxiety among girls, available now. In this sane, highly engaging, and informed guide for parents of daughters, Dr. Damour draws on decades of experience and the latest research to reveal the seven distinct—and absolutely normal—developmental transitions that turn girls into grown-ups, including Parting with Childhood, Contending with Adult Authority, Entering the Romantic World, and Caring for Herself. Providing realistic scenarios and welcome advice on how to engage daughters in smart, constructive ways, Untangled gives parents a broad framework for understanding their daughters while addressing their most common questions, including • My thirteen-year-old rolls her eyes when I try to talk to her, and only does it more when I get angry with her about it. How should I respond? • Do I tell my teen daughter that I’m checking her phone? • My daughter suffers from test anxiety. What can I do to help her? • Where’s the line between healthy eating and having an eating disorder? • My teenage daughter wants to know why I’m against pot when it’s legal in some states. What should I say? • My daughter’s friend is cutting herself. Do I call the girl’s mother to let her know? Perhaps most important, Untangled helps mothers and fathers understand, connect, and grow with their daughters. When parents know what makes their daughter tick, they can embrace and enjoy the challenge of raising a healthy, happy young woman. BOOKS FOR A BETTER LIFE AWARD WINNER “Finally, there’s some good news for puzzled parents of adolescent girls, and psychologist Lisa Damour is the bearer of that happy news. [Untangled] is the most down-to-earth, readable parenting book I’ve come across in a long time.”—The Washington Post “Anna Freud wrote in 1958, ‘There are few situations in life which are more difficult to cope with than an adolescent son or daughter during the attempt to liberate themselves.’ In the intervening decades, the transition doesn’t appear to have gotten any easier which makes Untangled such a welcome new resource.”—The Boston Globe

Author: David T Graham
The internet and world wide web are revolutionizing many aspects of our lives, and have become an accepted part of socioeconomic experience in developed countries. For entertainment, shopping, banking, establishing friendships, seeking information, and so on, the web is the first port of call for an increasing number of people. A few in education have been quick to see the potential of the web as a platform for delivering a variety of teaching and learning materials. Many more, however, would like to make use of the web, but lack either the time or the skills, or both. Untangled Web provides a guide for those wishing to develop their own teaching and learning resources on the web, whether for local, open or distance learning. By using this book, potential web educators can acquire some of these basic skills and save time by drawing on the experiences of the authors and avoiding the pitfalls and problems that they have encountered. The authors have gained considerable expertise in devising, designing, constructing, testing, adapting and evaluating their own web-based instruction packages which have been developed over a number of years and involve a variety of subject areas. Untangled web is therefore very much focused on practical experience, and while it is primarily aimed at teachers in further and higher education, schoolteachers interested in using the web as a teaching and learning medium will find it useful. Untangled Web has been written by an experienced team from the Department of International Studies at the Nottingham Trent University. David Graham teaches geography and information technology; Jane McNeil is Faculty webmaster and teaches medieval history and information technology; Lloyd Pettiford teaches international relations.Innovative guide to using the web in teaching and learning, providing practical advice for lecturers and teachers on using the web as more than just a support tool

Space curves around you, time slows down, particles are waves, a cat is both alive and dead. What's going on? It all starts to make sense when we untangle the universe with this clear and enlightening book. Day-dreamers and deep-thinkers, these are the concepts that will send your mind wandering to new places with a deeper understanding of the natural world. Physics has always been a tricky subject for the general public. Millions are fascinated by the laws of the physical world, but there has been a lack of books written specifically for general readers. The Universe Untangled is for those who are curious; yet do not have an extensive mathematical background. It uses images, analogies and comprehensible language to cover popular topics of interest including the evolution of the universe, fundamental forces and particle interactions, the nature of space and time according to Special and General Relativity, the ideas of Quantum Mechanics and the quest for knowing the unknown. The Universe Untangled is a unique book because it is written by an author whose career has been built on making science accessible to all. She has contributed to the design and content production of educational games, professional development courses, and science workbooks. In essence, this is not a book written by a physicist for other physicists. It is written by an educator who cares only about sharing her passion for science with others.

Category: Biography & Autobiography
No matter how mediocre or mundane, all hometowns have a storied past; neither mine nor yours is an exception. Be forewarned that you will encounter organized crime, religious strife, environmental disaster, romantic heartbreak, cultural chaos, and communal calamity, so, just deal with it! Historically accurate rather than politically correct, these harrowing accounts might raise a few hackles, foster a gaggle of goose bumps, and rekindle awkward moments. This saga begins in an old main street mansion serving as a childhood home. It then progresses to the parochial cultivation of church and school. Next are the peer-pressure pathways through the surrounding neighborhoods. And last, this journey meanders beyond the outskirts where anything can happen. Maybe we have something in common. There's a possibility that eccentric elders, spooky neighbors, and mysterious others existed where you grew up. Perhaps reclusive cemeteries, moonshiners, and brothels remained discreet while overindulged citizens, oversized cops, and over-zealous teachers got plenty of attention. And for sure, at least one local residence served as a sideshow salvage yard. Although you may have outgrown your hometown, its cockamamie collection of memories continues to reside in your mind and soul. These recollections will now be triggered by venturing into A Town Untangled.

The author challenges the reader to recognize and embrace contemplation as a way to address the complexity created by the ever-increasing entanglements found in the volume, variety, and velocity of the sensory inputs in today's world.
Author: Henry J. Sienkiewicz
Called a Walden for the internet age, Untangled encourages the reader to step back from the social media-centric, Twitterdriven world to focus on the things that matter. The author challenges the reader to recognize and embrace contemplation as a way to address the complexity created by the ever-increasing entanglements found in the volume, variety, and velocity of the sensory inputs in today's world. Untangled draws from the rich traditions of both Eastern and Western philosophy to tease apart the hyperconnected web of the modern world. In an evocative and poetic fashion, the author encourages exploration of the three pillars of contemplation-silence, stillness, and solitude-in order to cope with entanglements. With a journey through the heart of Taiwan as a backdrop, Untangled uses highly approachable and rich metaphors to provide the reader with insights to untangle. Considered a thought leader in innovative technology, cybersecurity, and organizational dynamics, Henry J. Sienkiewicz brings a wealth of experience to the fields of practical philosophy and critical thinking. Drawing upon his extensive experiences in the fields of technology, languages, political theory, defense, and cybersecurity and his successful military, corporate, and entrepreneurial careers, Sienkiewicz follows up his first book with another poetic call to action. He holds a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Notre Dame and a master of science degree from Johns Hopkins University. A multiple-award-winning technologist, Henry has served in executive leadership positions across multiple global organizations and in multiple sectors.
Girls normally grow on several developmental strands at the same time, though they grow at different rates. This is the reason why the teenage years are stressful for girls and their parents.
