In most cases, fog is used in movies to entice the hairs on the back of out neck to stand on end. It warns us that evil is lurking around, ready to impart some monster from behind the darkness. We begin to cower in our seats and grasp the arms of our chair or the person sitting next to us tighter. But looking at fog, in its purpose, fog is like the wrapping paper around a gift. We don't know what's beyond the paper but with hands tearing the pieces back, we see the treasure just beyond. M.oThere is Hope Beyond the Fog is a look at a life destined for greatness, but lost in a sea of abuse, misfortune and despair. How pond scum became a self-inflicted term for one mistreated who yearned for love and normalcy and found it by holding onto the anchor of her soul and breaking through the fog.

"Milo pays attention to the small details that define important moments: the rattling bones of a dead leaf, the prow of the boat biting into a sandy beach, the lipstick smile, the wet yellow-brown bath towel, the muffled slugging of a heart. When we look with him into these isolated experiences, we sense that like the speaker in each poem, we too are isolated, are spectators even to our own lives, engaging only momentarily with the reality and then stepping back to assess self, setting, and the other.—Helen Godfrey Pyke Southern Adventist University

No small number of books laud and record the heroic actions of those at war. But the peacekeepers? Who tells their stories? At the beginning of the 1990s, the world exited the cold war and entered an era of great promise for peace and security. Guided by an invigorated United Nations, the international community set out to end conflicts that had flared into vicious civil wars and to unconditionally champion human rights and hold abusers responsible. The stage seemed set for greatness. Today that optimism is shattered. The failure of international engagement in conflict areas ranging from Afghanistan to Congo and Lebanon to Kosovo has turned believers into skeptics. The Fog of Peace is a firsthand reckoning by Jean-Marie Guéhenno, the man who led UN peacekeeping efforts for eight years and has been at the center of all the major crises since the beginning of the 21st century. Guéhenno grapples with the distance between the international community's promise to protect and the reality that our noble aspirations may be beyond our grasp. The author illustrates with personal, concrete examples—from the crises in Afghanistan, Iraq, Congo, Sudan, Darfur, Kosovo, Ivory Coast, Georgia, Lebanon, Haiti, and Syria—the need to accept imperfect outcomes and compromises. He argues that nothing is more damaging than excessive ambition followed by precipitous retrenchment. We can indeed save many thousands of lives, but we need to calibrate our ambitions and stay the course.

Although inattentive ADHD has now been recognised by the mental health community as a disorder which affects many children and adults, it's difficult to find specific information on this particular form of ADHD. There are many differences between inattentive ADHD and the hyperactive/impulsive form of ADHD, and much of the generic information about "ADHD" isn't particularly helpful for those with the inattentive ADHD. Adults with inattentive ADHD are neither impulsive or hyperactive, but often have greater problems with issues such as absent mindedness and lack of confidence. Lifting the Fog isn't just another book on ADHD is provides specific information about how inattentive ADHD affects adults and how it differs from other forms of ADHD. It also includes useful information on the different treatment options available and provides a range of practical tips for helping manage the negative effects of inattentive ADHD.

"In Lifting the Fog of Peace, Dr. Janine Davidson explains how the American military has adapted itself to succeed in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq that are the most likely future face of combat. The book is informed by her experience of these wars in the Department of Defense, where she now plays a critical role in continuing the process of learning that has so visibly marked the military's performance in today's wars. Highly recommended." ---John A. Nagl, President, Center for a New American Security U.S. military officers throughout Iraq and Afghanistan spend their days worrying nearly as much about municipal power, water purification, trash collection, and jobs programs as they do about fighting the war. Although running elections, building roads, and governing cities have been perennial duties for U.S. soldiers for over 230 years, this generation has had to adapt and relearn lessons on the fly. Lifting the Fog of Peace puts the U.S. military's frustrating experiences in Iraq into context and reveals how the military was able to turn the tide during the socalled surge in 2007-8. Janine Davidson is Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Plans. She has served as Director of the Department of Defense's Stability Operations Capabilities.
