Bad Judgment is Cathleen Calbert's second collection of poems. Calbert offers feminist fables appropriate to the millennium: tales of when the world lost meaning, of falling in love in an age of indeterminacy. Her sense of comic absurdity is uncanny: in one poem, the speaker attends a costume party as a dead debutante; in another, facile positivism is shredded by satire. In poems that balance realistic and surrealistic narratives, irony and sentiment, Calbert records the journey of a woman reeling from a number of losses-her youth, the death of a close friend, religious faith-toward love and marriage. These poems speak directly of and from the self, and in so doing echo Whitman's conversational grace. Calbert writes an updated feminist song of herself, a song that celebrates the pleasure of being the modern "woman as wild card, as other/than wife, mother, lover, friend," the woman who delights in forging herself with wit and wisdom. The title poem, "Bad Judgment," shows how the little lies we tell ourselves and others can create lives of bad faith, and as much as she would like to be consoled for her losses, reassured about the permanence of her recompenses, Calbert does not seek the easy balm of dogma. Instead of grace or God, per se, she suggests, we have perspective. And Calbert shows that we are blessed, in our quest for simplifying principles, to discover the exceptional. Cathleen Calbert is the author of one previous collection of poetry, Lessons in Space, published by the University Press of Florida in 1997. She was a recipient of The Nation Discovery Prize in 1991, the Gordon Barber Memorial Award of The Poetry Society of America in 1994, and a writing fellowship from The Rhode Island State Council for the Arts in 1995. Her poems have appeared in The Best American Poetry 1995, Feminist Studies, The Hudson Review, The Paris Review, Ploughshares, Poetry Northwest, TriQuarterly, and elsewhere. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island, where she is an Associate Professor at Rhode Island College. "Between 'Don't try anything!' and 'She'll try anything!' fall (or rise: depending on her mood) Cathy Calbert's startling new poems, so cool, so speculative, so disabused, so warm. Our colloquial

Bad Judgment is a quintessential fall-from-grace story about a man from humble beginnings who rose to the top of the legal profession, only to be removed from the bench in disgrace because of his poor judgment, the intolerant attitudes of the Tlite bar, and political necessity. What did Leo Landreville really do? And why were some of the most famous lawyers and politicians in Canada in the1960s Canada determined to end his judicial career? Leo Landreville was appointed one of Her Majesty's justices in 1956. After moving from Sudbury to Toronto to take up his job at Osgoode Hall, he and his wife moved into the newly built and very fashionable Benvenuto Place and joined all the best clubs. His elevated status was to be short-lived. Landreville had accepted a stock option from Northern Ontario Natural Gas (NONG) when it obtained the gas franchise in Sudbury and he was its mayor. Soon after settling into his chambers at Osgoode Hall, he exercised the option and pocketed $117,000 without having laid out a cent. Landreville was not the only politician to benefit from his dealings with NONG. The `Gas Scandal,' as it was called, brought an early end to the careers of three provincial Conservative cabinet ministers and bruised the reputation of the Liberal leader, another beneficiary. Landreville was charged with municipal corruption and conspiracy but he managed to beat the accusations. When the Law Society of Upper Canada convened a special committee, found the judge guilty of misconduct and called upon the minister of justice to have him removed, the Landreville affair began. The character assassination of Landreville soon became a national sport, and Landreville found himself under investigation by a royal commission. A joint parliamentary committee recommended that Landreville be removed from the bench. Instead, he resigned in disgrace. Bad Judgment is a probing account of judicial independence, and of what should be done when the conduct of judges is brought into question. A veritable 'Who's Who' of Canadian legal and political history, it provides an inside look at the workings of the judiciary, the Law Society of Upper Canada, and the Ontario and federal governments in their attempt to deal with a growing scandal that threatened to bring the administration of justice in Canada into disrepute.

At the heart of political leadership lies choice. And at the heart of choice lies judgment. A leader's psychology and experience intersect with political realities to produce consequences that can make or break a leader—or a country. Nowhere is judgment more important than in the making of foreign policy. Good judgments can avoid wars, or win them. Poor judgments can start wars or lose them. This book draws together a distinguished group of contributors—psychologists, political scientists, and policymakers—to focus on and understand both good and poor judgment in foreign policy making. Case studies of key leadership decisions combine with theoretical overviews and analyses to offer a highly textured portrait of judgment in action in the all-important foreign policy arena. An up-to-the-minute case on George W. Bush and the war on terrorism applies good judgment theory to contemporary events.

Entering the Real World is a collection of practical ideas to empower young adults as they enter and adjust to the real world. The ideas are simple, straightforward and easy to adapt; no major life changes are needed (though some could result). Most high schools and colleges still focus primarily on academics and ignore teaching practical skills needed to thrive in the real world. Role models for young adults are often entertainers, Olympic athletes and sports figures, all of whom devote much time to achieve their goals. Self-help media most often teach about major changes that are needed to succeed with a new approach to living. Instead, Entering the Real World offers smaller but powerful ideas that can be applied immediately and successfully to one’s life without a “major internal overhaul.” Some of the book’s more than 140 ideas include how to: Interview successfully and enter the workforce Get great reference letters Think for oneself Begin building wealth (despite thousands of dollars in student loans) Manage time effectively Communicate clearly in business and personal relationships Benefits Over 140 straightforward, easily usable and adaptable ideas Save time and money by preventing common mistakes Shorten the learning curve to adapt to the real world Get ahead faster Get a head start over your peers Touches on aspects of mental illnesses often overlooked or shoveled under the rug Special Features Many ideas are cross-referenced for easy access The book is designed in small sections for easy reading on a mobile device Most sections end with a “Takeaway” and/or a “Take Action!” that, respectively, summarize the section and suggest actions a reader can take to act on the ideas The “Takeaway” and “Take Action!” segments for each chapter appear at the end of the chapter as a summary Author’s website available for: Download of files referenced in the book Errata Interaction among readers to post comments and suggestions Providing feedback about the book through a feedback page with an option for anonymity
