Stories Make the World: Reflections on Storytelling and the Art of the Documentary by Stephen Most

Since the beginning of human history, stories have helped people make sense of their lives and their world. Today, an understanding of storytelling is invaluable as we seek to orient ourselves within a flood of raw information and an unprecedented variety of supposedly true accounts. In Stories Make the World, award-winning screenwriter Stephen Most offers a captivating, refreshingly heartfelt exploration of how documentary filmmakers and other storytellers come to understand their subjects and cast light on the world through their art. Drawing on the author's decades of experience behind the scenes of television and film documentaries, this is an indispensable account of the principles and paradoxes that attend the quest to represent reality truthfully.

About the Author
Stephen Most is a writer and filmmaker. He has writing credits on four Academy Award "best documentary" nominees and five Emmy-winning films, including Wonders of Nature, Promises, and Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time. His book River of Renewal: Myth and History in the Klamath Basin was published in 2006.

The Unspoken Code: A Businesswoman's No-Nonsense Guide to Making It In the Corporate World by Marja Norris

Achieving success as a professional woman doesn't have to be hard!

With over 30 years of experience rising through the ranks of the male-dominated world of finance, author Marja Norris knows all too well the challenges females continue to encounter in today's business culture. Over the decades, she's learned how to expertly navigate the rules and expectations of the workplace, many of which remain unclear, unspoken, or unstated to females trying to make their mark. In The Unspoken Code, Norris equips young professional women with the tools they need to succeed by shining a spotlight on the subtle, sometimes controversial, norms they face as soon as they set foot in an office.

The Unspoken Code contains no-nonsense advice to help women climb the corporate ladder with confidence, as well as valuable insights from successful businesswomen reflecting on their own journeys to the top. The book's three sections guide readers towards their professional goals by awakening their own power within, perfecting both verbal and nonverbal communication skills in aggressive business environments, and showing the significance of how their dress impacts future career opportunities.

Today's business culture is shifting towards equality, but it's not shifting fast enough. The Unspoken Code empowers women to push through barriers with moxie and gives them confidence to achieve their professional dreams.

About the Author
