This updated edition of Witness, which includes a new Afterword with an address by Steven Spielberg, commemorates the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II and the liberation of Europe from the Nazis. For over 25 years, the March of the Living has organized visits for adults and students from all over the world to Poland, where millions of Jews were enslaved and murdered by Nazi Germany. The organization's goal is not only to remember and bear witness to the terrible events of the past, but also to look forward. Witness is a compilation of firsthand accounts from the survivors who have participated in March of the Living programs, together with responses from the people, young students in particular, of many faiths and cultures worldwide who have traveled with the group over the years. In the new edition each photograph of a survivor, rescuer, or WWII liberator is embedded with an invisible barcode that, via mobile phone, connects the reader to the video testimony of the individual pictured. 75 videos housed on the USC Shoah Foundation or March of the Living websites can be accessed this way. The new edition has also been enriched with compelling new liberation stories and additional content honoring those who rescued Jews during WWII. Along with the new Afterword, the book includes a Preface featuring Pope Francis and Pope John Paul II, and words from Barack Obama that remind us how important “witnesses” are to a true understanding of history and how we behave to one another today and in the future.

Sport psychology is a competitive profession with rigorous and demanding entry routes in terms of education, training and accreditation. Once qualified, the sport psychology practitioner will face complex, day-to-day professional challenges of the kind not always covered in conventional sport psychology textbooks. Becoming a Sport Psychologist is the first book to reveal the reality of working in sport psychology through the personal perspectives and narratives of some of the world’s leading sport psychologists, top professionals with many years experience of working at every level of sport, from amateur to elite, in consulting and support roles, and in sport psychology research. With each chapter focusing on a key issue or issues in professional practice, each contributing psychologist discusses their own education, training and professional experience, their personal motivation and their approach to consulting and delivery, helping the reader to develop a rounded understanding of how to succeed in sport psychology. The book also explores key professional issues such as intervention style, work-life balance and the commercial aspects of sport psychology practice not covered in other books, plus it offers a summary of typical education and training routes and additional information on professional organisations and accreditation schemes. Becoming a Sport Psychologist is invaluable reading for anybody considering a career in sport psychology, or any practising sport psychologist looking to extend and develop their professional skills.

In the new novel from the author of Losing Me, one woman is about to discover what happens when you take the “grand” out of “grandma.” Recently widowed, Judy Schofield jumps at the chance to look after her two grandchildren for six weeks while their parents are out of the country. After all, she’s already raised her own daughter—and quite successfully, if she may say so herself. But all it takes is a few days of private school functions, helicopter parents, video games, and never-ending Frozen sing-alongs for Judy to feel she’s in over her head. As weeks become months, Judy feels more and more like an outsider among all the young mothers with their parenting theories du jour, especially when she gets on the wrong side of the school’s snooty alpha mom. But finding a friend in another grandmother—and a man who takes her mind off all the stress—almost makes it worthwhile. She just needs to take it one incomprehensible homework assignment and one major meltdown at a time. . . .

Tuesday's Child tenders direction... Deaf from the age of five, Adeline Munroe operates a hospital for injured dolls, but lately her quiet life is disturbed by violent, haunting visions. Perhaps it's just her unspoken fear—a serial killer has struck in Headley Cross. But Adeline soon realizes she's seeing each murder just before they happen and reluctantly contacts the police. Detective Sergeant Nate Holmes has enough to deal with between caring for his orphaned niece and his current assignment—the Herbalist killings, so when a woman comes forward who claims to be "seeing" the crimes in dreams, he isn't hopeful she'll be of any help. But he knows her from church, and she inexplicably describes how each crime is committed. Is God answering his prayers through Adeline? Adeline assists the police, yet more women die and she becomes the prime target of the killer. Will Nate crack the case before the Herbalist can complete his agenda—or will the next murder Adeline foresees be her own?
