The village green is the focal point of any community, a gathering place where the best ideas take root and the brightest voices are heard. The New Village Green gathers some of the best ideas and brightest voices of the green community, some famous and familiar, others fresh and unknown. Each tells an absorbing story, and collectively they comprise a powerful chorus that profiles the current state of the environment.

This remarkable book gathers wisdom and insight from a compelling and thought-provoking virtual community. Each contributor brings a unique perspective that mingles reverence for the environment with provocative thoughts for the future. Topics range from spirituality to solar panels and, just like a real village green, are juxtaposed with opinions from “the new village people,” including:

Writers Bill McKibben and Michael Pollan Scientists James Lovelock and Donella Meadows Spiritual leaders Gandhi and Buddha

And practical, homespun topics are given equal time:

Good reasons to embrace alternative currencies Tips for growing great garlic

Meant to be devoured in one sitting or sipped a little at a time, this book springboards the green movement into the future by acknowledging its roots in the past. Rachel Carson, Paul Ehrlich, and Helen and Scott Nearing are as relevant today as the Slow Food Movement and Peak Oil. This book will touch the heart of anyone who lives with conscience and hope.

Stephen Morris is editor and publisher of Green Living Magazine and co-founder of The Public Press.

Darwin's evolution is now complete. Darwin Hunter made his literary debut more than twenty years ago when he chronicled the lifestyle warfare taking place in idyllic rural Vermont between the entrenched natives ("Woodchucks") and the invaders from the south ("Flatlanders") in a self-proclaimed magnum opus, "Beyond Yonder." The misadventures continued as he made an unorthodox run for public office, embracing a policy of Total Disclosure in "The King of Vermont." Meanwhile, to the south in the coastal Flatlands in a seaside community just south of Boston called Indian Mound, Arthur Gordon, disgraced Hollywood film director, tries to recover his self-esteem by restoring a rundown summer cottage and catching a striped bass on a fly rod in the mini-epic "Stripah Love." Now, the entire cast of characters from both locations come together for the final chapter (well, who knows?) of Darwin's journey in "Stories and Tunes." Darwin Hunter is the MegaBucks Czar, a man with unassailable authority over the state lottery. After an epiphany that reveals to him the regressive nature of this institutionalized gambling, Darwin becomes a modern day Robin Hood, using his power to more fairly distribute the wealth, at least in the Brigadoon that is Vermont. He is assisted and challenged by the most colorful cast of characters since ... uh, "Canterbury Tales." There's the rappin' Shappy Shapiro, originator of the Peace Pretzel; BJ Bosco, equally at ease shooting with a camera or a gun; the silently voracious Dog Sled Girl; Henry Drown, entrepreneur from Down Under; and Captain Goo-Roo, the musician whose life is defined by the power chords of rock and roll. Vermont is the stage for a madcap farce with pretensions of searing social commentary. Things gotta change.
How the strategies and tactics of fly fishing can translate to improved trading performance

Much like trading, successful fly fishing requires both an understanding of "big picture" conditions and the ability to implement tactical techniques to actually catch the fish. In Fly Fishing the Stock Market, Dr. Stephen Morris compares his method for trading stocks with his favorite past time, fly fishing—providing fresh insights into his successful trading approach. Engaging and accessible, this book skillfully describes how Morris applied this approach to generate an astounding 268% growth in his account in the volatile and confusing, post-financial crisis markets.

Morris explains how he uses technical indicators to determine what he calls the "market season" and how he then zeros in on individual stock patterns to make his trades. He also reveals unique tools, such as the Market Timing Monitor and Weather Station, which give him a sense of the market's long-term condition and provides the basis for his trading and risk management strategies.

Filled with the authenticity of a real trader figuring out how to uncover profitable trading opportunities A companion Website contains supplementary material that allows you to learn in a hands-on fashion long after closing the book Provides a compelling portrait of how a successful trader thinks about markets, develops a method, and then implements the method in real time The author's spectacular returns are backed by publicly documented records

Just like fly fishing, traders must adjust their approach constantly because market conditions constantly change. This book will help you achieve this elusive goal, and capture consistent profits in the process.
