In this first book in the Step By Step trilogy, global catastrophe occurs as all plastic mysteriously liquefies. All the small components making many technologies possible―Navigation systems, communications, medical equipment―fail.

When he died he feared he had been forgotten... …He was dead wrong! Bela Lugosi is considered one of the greatest actors of the twentieth-century... but you'd never know it based upon the way he was treated by the Hollywood executives he worked for. Shut out, ignored, and hideously underpaid, he could have easily given up, walked away from show business, and no one would have blamed him for doing so.
But he didn't. Now a body of his work exists that is celebrated decades after his death... because he worked hard and never gave up. Bela Lugosi persevered in the face of tremendous adversity. Can Bela's story inspire you to keep going in your quest to make the world a better place? In Reign of the Vampire: A Tribute to the Perseverance of Bela Lugosi, Leo Wiltshire (M.
A. in Organizational Leadership) examines the struggles and triumphs of Lugosi's life in order to flesh out one of the most inspirational tales of determination ever told.
Fifty years ago, Milton Friedman had the ground-breaking idea to improve public education with school vouchers. By separating government financing of education from government administration of schools, Friedman argued, parents at all income levels would have the freedom to choose the schools their children attend. Liberty & Learning is a collection of essays from the nation's top education experts evaluating the progress of Friedman's innovative idea and reflecting on its merits in the 21st century. The book also contains a special prologue and epilogue by Milton Friedman himself. The contributors to this volume take a variety of approaches to Friedman's voucher idea. All of them assess the merit of Friedman's plan through an energetic, contemporary perspective, though some authors take a theoretical position, while others employ a very pragmatic approach.
