Small Victories Book Summary : ‘When I first heard about this Faith No More biography, I didn’t know what to think. But I have to give credit where it is due, it’s a quality piece. The man has done his research and it shows. It provided me with more than a few revelations … and I’m in the band.’ — Bill Gould, Faith No More Small Victories: The True Story of Faith No More is the definitive biography of one of the most intriguing bands of the late twentieth century. Written with the participation of the group’s key members, it tells how such a heterogeneous group formed, flourished, and fractured, and how Faith No More helped redefine rock, metal and alternative music. The book chronicles the creative and personal tensions that defined and fueled the band, forensically examines the band’s beginnings in San Francisco’s post-punk wasteland, and charts the factors behind the group’s ascent to MTV-era stardom. Small Victories strips away the mythology and misinformation behind their misanthropic masterpiece Angel Dust, explores the rationale behind the frequent hiring and firing of band members, and traces the unraveling of the band in the mid-1990s. It also examines the band’s breakup and hiatus, explores their unwelcome legacy as nu-metal godfathers, and gives a behind-the-scenes view of their rebirth. Based on meticulous research and hundreds of interviews with current and former band members and other key figures, Small Victories combines a fan’s passion with a reporter’s perspicacity.

Small Victories Book Summary : Small Victories is Samuel Freedman's remarkable story of life on the front lines in the sort of high school that seems like a disaster with walls--old, urban, overcrowded, and overwhelmingly minority. Seaward Park High School, on Manhattan's Lower East Side, has been ranked among the worst 10 percent of high schools in the state--yet 92 percent of its graduates go on to higher education. The reason is dedicated teachers, one of whom, English instructor Jessica Siegel, is the subject of Freedman's unforgettably dramatic humanization of the education crisis. Following Siegel through the 1987-88 academic year, Freedman not only saw a master at work but learned from the inside just how a school functions against impossible odds. Small Victories alternates Jessica's experiences with those of others at Seaward Park, and as we cone to know intimately a number of the astonishing students and staff, Small Victories reveals itself as a book that has the power to change the way we see our world.

Small Victories Book Summary : An illustrated journey through American prints, illuminated by the victories, defeats& discoveries of two intrepid collectors. For more than four decades, Williams built the most comprehensive treasury of American prints ever assembled. His 6,000 prints cover both familiar and totally unknown ground. What stands out about their collection is not the expected holdings of iconic images by artists known to anyone even remotely familiar with the field, but the sustained effort to break new ground, to include artists and entire schools of art that have been unknown or routinely ignored--the regionalists who worked on the shores of Cape Cod and CA, in Dallas and Charleston, as well as the Ashcan School of NY. Here are hundreds of WPA artists, supported by the government during the Depression as well are the masterpieces of Bellows and Homer, Lewis and Sloan. Illustrated in full color, this will be judged among the indispensable and totally original print reference books for years to come.

Small Victories Book Summary : The New York Times bestseller from the author of Help, Thanks, Wow, Hallelujah Anyway and Almost Everything, Lamott's long-awaited collection of new and selected essays on hope, joy, and grace. Anne Lamott writes about faith, family, and community in essays that are both wise and irreverent. It’s an approach that has become her trademark. Now in Small Victories, Lamott offers a new message of hope that celebrates the triumph of light over the darkness in our lives. Our victories over hardship and pain may seem small, she writes, but they change us—our perceptions, our perspectives, and our lives. Lamott writes of forgiveness, restoration, and transformation, how we can turn toward love even in the most hopeless situations, how we find the joy in getting lost and our amazement in finally being found. Profound and hilarious, honest and unexpected, the stories in Small Victories are proof that the human spirit is irrepressible.

Small Victories Book Summary : Have you ever felt that you weren't doing enough good, that you weren't doing enough to help others who are suffering? Jeremiah Dreeman had these thoughts. He is a lawyer working for the Legal Aid Society in New York City. Unlike his fellow graduates from law school, he wasn't in the job for riches. He wanted only to serve others, to give of himself. But Jeremiah's altruism was its own form of greed. Where they wanted to acquire more possessions, Jeremiah wanted to do more good. He wouldn't be satisfied with doing his small part, and he was willing to give away his very salvation to try and save all of mankind. But Jeremiah discovers that even being too good can be corrupting, and there is a terrible price to be paid by many.

Kurt Gödel, the most fascinating, though hermetic, mathematician of the twentieth century, has just died of anorexia. His widow, Adele, a fierce woman shunned by her husband’s colleagues because she had been a cabaret dancer, is now consigned to a nursing home. To the great annoyance of the Institute of Advanced Studies, she refuses to hand over Gödel’s precious records. Anna Roth, the timid daughter of two mathematicians who are part of the Princeton clique, is given the difficult task of befriending Adele and retrieving the documents from her. As Adele begins to notice Anna’s own estrangement from her milieu and starts to trust her, she opens the gates of her memory and together they travel back to Vienna during the Nazi era, Princeton right after the war, the pressures of McCarthyism, the end of the positivist ideal, and the advent of nuclear weapons. It is this epic story of a genius who could never quite find his place in the world, and the determination of the woman who loved him, that will eventually give Anna the courage to change her own life.

Apathy and Other Small Victories Book Summary : A scathingly funny debut novel about disillusionment, indifference, and one man's desperate fight to assign absolutely no meaning to modern life. The only thing Shane cares about is leaving. Usually on a Greyhound bus, right before his life falls apart again. Just like he planned. But this time it's complicated: there's a sadistic corporate climber who thinks she's his girlfriend, a rent-subsidized affair with his landlord's wife, and the bizarrely appealing deaf assistant to Shane's cosmically unstable dentist. When one of the women is murdered, and Shane is the only suspect who doesn't care enough to act like he didn't do it, the question becomes just how he'll clear the good name he never had and doesn't particularly want: his own. “The malaise of cubicle culture may be well-trodden comedic territory by now, but Neilan's debut skewers office life with a flourish for the grotesque.” —The Village Voice

Little Victories Small Defeats Book Summary : Little Victories, Small Defeats Our world is fully capable of taking an innocent, sensitive, intelligent young man and through death, hypocrisy, retribution and remorse turn him into a drifting, aimless shell of what he might have been. That this happens to James Branaugh is not a story in itself. That James can find his way back from a useless existence, find and give lasting love, and muster the will to redeem his place in society while battling for his life, is a story. That tale comprises the theme of this book. James, the central character, hails from a small farm in the back country of West Virginia. Before his life can really begin, he is left spiritually destitute through the death of his wife and daughter at the hands of a small time drug dealer, and morally adrift by his own redress of the crime. The next several decades of idle wander brings him full circle to his boyhood home. This return is made to finally embrace peace and live his remaining years amid the soothing comfort of the ancestral farm. Before any solace is found, James finds himself in the middle of an old and on-going Machiavellian plot to acquire or control all lands in the immediate area including his own. The ever escalating war of greed is delivered to his doorstep by none other than a US Senator and County Sheriff. Thankfully, James does not have to fight alone, and acquires fellow soldiers in the form of a crippled lawyer, half crazy woodsman, renegade FBI agent and a two-fisted lover. The battles rage from Washington townhouses to high pasture barns and include some decidedly undesirables in hand-to-hand fighting. Someone once said that “all real stories end in death”. Death is no stranger to the characters in this archetypical yarn of good versus evil. Set among bucolic hills, the rustic normalcy of country life serves as counterpoint to the chaotic appeal of contemporary living. The charm of simplicity stands in stark contrast to the narcotic of progress. This blend of contradictory desires and lifestyles forms the backdrop for a reflection on greed gone mad. That James can succeed is given. Whether he does and how he goes about it is the story.

Survival of Rural America Book Summary : Richard Wood knows that rural communities need more than jobs or money to survive: they need to become valued again as desirable places to live. He takes a closer look at what has happened in several Kansas farming towns and shows that there is much more depth and diversity to rural life than meets the eye. Wood traveled the back roads to gather stories of people in some of the most vulnerable communities that are trying to stave off depopulation. These are not just accounts of people scrambling to survive in incipient ghost towns like Ada, but gritty success stories like Plainville, where an upscale design business ignited a revival, or Atwood, which shifted from industrial recruitment to home-grown entrepreneurship. With dozens of photos that bring rural America to life, Wood provides an inside look at what really makes this country tick - and at some of the developments that may turn the tide against what seemed an inevitable decline. Although the odds are stacked against rural recovery, the small victories that Wood shows us hold the promise that transformation and revival may yet stave off the final bitter harvest.
