The education of their children is of paramount importance to all Indian parents. They spend tens of thousands of crores each year to get their young educated. The country fetes its successful students : from class X to board toppers and those who 'crack the IIT JEE' to those who clear the civil- services examination. Yet things on the ground are dire. About 70 per cent of all students ( in villages, towns and cities) have to make do with inferior schooling. Metropolitan newspapers are full of the difficulty of getting a nursery seat in a good school. And while there is a seat crunch in the better colleges too, only 10 per cent of all students between the ages of 18 and 21 are enrolled in college. Crores of educated Indians discover too late that they do not have the skills to land a suitable job. Y.S. Rajan examines the gamut of issues involved in India's efforts to educate its young people and the work required to fix schools, vocational training centres, colleges and universities. He argues that Indian education needs reforms on a scale comparable to those which freed the economy of the shackles of the licence-permit raj almost twenty years ago.

This work challenges the current reliance on "The Three R's" or Replacement, Reduction and Refinement which direct most animal research in the behavioral sciences. The author argues that these principles that were developed in the 1950's to guide the use of animals in research studies are outdated. He suggests that the notions of refinement and reduction are often ill-defined and can be useful only in cases where replacement is impossible.

Christianity is a critical religion. It is not represented this way in the modern era, but it is none the less. A modern Pastor of a mega-church refuses to preach on anything controversial. If Christ had possessed this attitude we would have no churches, no charity, no love, and no reformation. Christ was filled with controversy and his people (the Jews) insisted that the Roman kill him. They did. The book The Three Rs is an answer to this modern error which is propagated by friend and foe alike, The Scriptures represent the religion and people as salt, light and darkness, good and evil. This is controversy. The writing of the Reverend Danforth have received much attention recently because he is an Episcopal Priest, ex-Senator, and good Republican. He is in favor of everything from homo-sexual marriage to creating life for its destruction to save the life of living human beings. He says that he is opposed to abortion (without definition). The Three Rs simply asks people to return to the Bible for answers to all questions pertaining to man, especially his origin, purpose, and destiny. It is built around the ideal question: Can Christianity and radical liberalism co-exist? There is nothing wrong with liberalism in its pure form but radical liberalism of today will destroy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. George Washington and his continentals were all liberals. However, their conception of liberty and freedom differ from the definitions of today as far as night from day. The first President of the United States always understood that if "God build not the house, they labor in vain that built it." There is but one answer and that is a return to the three Rs which is a return to revival, reformation, and restoration. This will produce a renewal of the American spirit and a revival of thing "sacred and divine." All of this is formed from the ideas of faith, hope, and love which are eternal truths. We live in what some believe to be hopeless times, but for the believer in God we live, breathe, and embrace hope and optimism. I do not know the destiny of the United States but I do believe, understand, and know the destiny of the people of God. We are saved by the grace of God but that does not exclude our faithfulness and obedience. The Three Rs cover these topics. May all of it be faithful to His Will and Word.

Second chances don’t come along that often. But when they do, you grab them with both hands. And hold on tight. Perfect strangers don’t just leave you a share in their business. Do they? And even if they do, surely the rightful owner won’t just take it lying down...? Abigail Fischer is about to find out. When a mysterious letter arrives informing her that she’s inherited a controlling interest in a thriving construction firm Abigail thinks it must be a mistake. Or a sick joke. That is until she’s confronted by her new, very angry and very reluctant business partner. Handsome as sin but determined to be rid of her, Cain Parrish is everything Abigail desires—and most fears. Forced to uproot from her safe but dead-end job to help run the firm, Abigail is quickly drawn to her dominant partner. Attuned to her most secret desires, and able to meet them effortlessly, he quickly finds his way past her defences. But Abigail is not what she seems. Astute in business and a skilled Dom, Cain can easily demand her submission, but can he find his way past Abigail’s carefully constructed façade to discover the shameful secret she’s managed to conceal all her life? And despite her growing enthusiasm for the new opportunities now facing her, Abigail can’t become something she’s not. Or can she? Is it possible to leave the past behind and start over? When things start to go wrong in their business, and as Abigail’s blunders threaten to sink their small but up to now profitable enterprise, will their delicate personal relationship survive? Will Cain forgive Abigail’s mistakes or is there a deeper significance to her apparent ineptitude?
