The Big Redhead Book: Inside the Secret Society of Red Hair is an inside look into one of the most elite societies in the world—the real two percent. Well, you know, the two percent of the world's population that are natural redheads, at least. This book has equal parts pop culture, ginger facts, and humorous stories about what it's like to actually have red hair. It's loaded with everything you'd ever want to know about us reds; how we're scientifically different from the norms (non-redheads), how we've been stereotyped in pop culture, and the do's and don'ts of having a red in your life, among other things! Whether you are a redhead, know a redhead, or are just an enthusiast, this book explores the realities, the myths, and where red hair actually originates (it’s not Ireland). Author Erin La Rosa not only delivers the facts, statistics, and undeniable realities of being a ginger, but she also weaves in her own personal and hilarious stories about being red. Being a redhead is not just a hair color, it’s a lifestyle—and this book is your own exclusive peek into that fabulous world. Some surprising facts about redheads that you will discover include: - The association between redheads and humor came from redheaded slaves in ancient Greece - There are over 30 leading or recurring redhead characters in Disney and Pixar films... that's a lot when you remember we're only two percent of the world's population! - Redhead women allegedly have more sex, more threesomes, and more orgasms than other women... or do they? Let's find out! - Some Egyptian rulers dyed their hair red to assert their power (looking at you, Cleopatra) - And redheads need more anesthesia at the dentist, because they're not going down without a fight

From New York Times bestselling author Jodi Thomas comes a reader-favorite story of a life, a legacy and a love that has the power to change a community. Originally published in 2005. Everyone assumes that Rosa Lee Altman lived a life without passion. Her once-beautiful home now sits silent and empty, its gardens overgrown and its windows boarded up, surrounded by what passes for progress in Clifton Creek, Texas. And if some of the townsfolk have their way, this idyllic reminder of times past will be sold off to the highest bidder, despite its rich history. When a group of community members with little in common is chosen to decide the fate of the old Altman place, they soon learn that this home is more than bricks and mortar. No one is prepared for what they discover beneath Rosa Lee’s overgrown roses—or how her legacy will change not only their town, but their very lives.

To pursue her dream of a better future, Rosa sought work overseas. Leaving her husband and three children in the Philippines, she found out quickly that, when it comes to domestic work abroad, one has to forget one’s own needs and desires. She saw this as her fate and God’s will. Chores had to be completed to the satisfaction of her foreign employers, whilst her dedication in taking care of their children was second to none. The Philippines, Singapore and England are vastly different worlds. Mastering her anxieties, she tackled unfamiliar tasks she never dreamt of - using washing machines, cooking with spices and wine, and handling fragile wine and spirit glasses. For this, she was paid much more than what many teachers in the Philippines earned in a month. This is Rosa’s story – the story of an individual person’s drive to improve her lot in life, in the context of the Philippine economic conditions.

Inside secure command centers, military officials make life and death decisions-- but the Pentagon also offers food courts, banks, drugstores, florists, and chocolate shops. It is rather symbolic of the way that the U.S. military has become our one-stop-shopping solution to global problems. Brooks traces this seismic shift in how America wages war, and provides a rallying cry for action as we undermine the values and rules that keep our world from sliding toward chaos.
