Why men fall out of love : the secrets they don't tell by Michael French( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Addressing both men and women, novelist and nonfiction author French (Abingdon's) provides an insider's view of what drives men away from their partners and what both parties can do about it. Basing his insights on in-depth interviews with men from all socioeconomic groups who were asked why a previously wonderful relationship turned sour, he discovered that some "relationship busters" can be traced back to childhood issues of anger and loss, issues of masculine identity, popular culture's emphasis on happiness, and communication differences between men and women. Interestingly, women generally act to change their unhappiness, while men tend to live with it. Most articles on relationships are written from a woman's perspective, but French offers a look from the male perspective. Well done and helpful; recommended for all libraries

Born to fly : the heroic story of downed U.S. Navy pilot Shane Osborn by Shane Osborn( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the age of three, Shane Osborn dreamed of being a pilot. He began learning the skills he would need to fly as a member of the Civil Air Patrol, a branch of the U.S. Air Force, when he was just twelve years old. But it wasn't until he graduated from the naval ROTC program at the University of Nebraska and joined the navy that his dream became a reality. For five years, Osborn practiced rigorous training exercises, working tirelessly day in and day out until he advanced from navy pilot to mission commander. All Lt. Osborn's flying skills were put to the test when a Chinese F-8 II fighter jet collided with his EP-3E ARIES II plane during a U.S. surveillance mission through international airspace. The impact severely damaged Osborn's aircraft, sending it plummeting toward the ocean. With almost certain disaster looming, Osborn managed to gain control of the crippled plane and land it safely on the Chinese island of Hainan-saving the lives of his twenty-three crewmates. In Born to Fly, Shane Osborn describes these terrifying events in vivid detail, along with the years of dedicated training that made the emergency landing possible. This is the inspirational story of a boy with a dream, and of the extraordinary discipline and courage that made him a hero
