Old School Book Review:

The protagonist of Tobias Wolff’s shrewdly—and at times devastatingly—observed first novel is a boy at an elite prep school in 1960. He is an outsider who has learned to mimic the negligent manner of his more privileged classmates. Like many of them, he wants more than anything on earth to become a writer. But to do that he must first learn to tell the truth about himself. The agency of revelation is the school literary contest, whose winner will be awarded an audience with the most legendary writer of his time. As the fever of competition infects the boy and his classmates, fraying alliances, exposing weaknesses, Old School explores the ensuing deceptions and betrayals with an unblinking eye and a bottomless store of empathy. The result is further evidence that Wolff is an authentic American master.

Old School Book Review:

Koryu, literally, 'old flow from the past,' refers to Japanese martial traditions that predate the sweeping cultural changes that followed the Meiji Restoration of 1868. They generally have a very different character and tone from modern martial arts, such as kendo, judo or aikido which followed. More than the study of antique weapons, self-defense or a form of athletics, these martial traditions are a cultural legacy and a window to another time and place. In the first edition of Old School, Ellis Amdur, a renowned martial arts researcher, and himself an instructor in two different surviving koryu, gave readers a rare glimpse into feudal Japanese warrior arts, both as they were in the past and as they live on today. Nearly a decade later, he returns to the subject in this new, greatly expanded edition, bringing readers inside the dojos of a number ancient schools, providing details analysis of the evolution and morphology of uniquely Japanese weaponry, addressing the myth and reality of Japan's naginata-wielding warrior women, and discussing the modern relevance of the blood oaths, magical ritual and mysticism that often permeate the koryu. Finally, he looks at the challenge of preservation and transmission, especially as more and more practitioners of the koryu exist outside of Japan itself. Writing with a combination of the initiate's passion for his subject, and the scientist's rigorous search for the truth, Amdur asks critically: do the ancient traditions still meet the objectives of their founders? Are they successfully passing their ancient legacy down to the next generation? Over a third larger than the first edition and filled with new artwork and photography, Old School: Japanese Martial Traditions Expanded Edition will be an invaluable addition to the library of old readers and new alike.

Old School New Clothes Book Review:

Is much of Christian education in America distinctly Christian? Ron Hoch and David Smith say, "No." Instead it is guilty of having adopted an ideology and methodology that strips it of the right to call itself Christian and the ability to fulfill a truly Christian mission. The authors claim that the fundamentally humanistic ideology of the West conditions and controls much of what is labeled "Christian" education. By talking about the need to integrate faith and learning, focusing on teaching methodology, and operating schools in virtually the same way as government-run schools, many Christian academics betray captivity to the dogma that humans are the measure of all things and need to do what God has already done. As a result, much of what controls the conversation and practices in Christian academia echoes the humanistic arrogance of the West, and offers no substantive alternative to it. In Old School, New Clothes, Hoch and Smith issue a call for Christian academics to own up to their own confession--that all reality was created and integrated by God, damaged by sin, and has already been reintegrated in and by Jesus. Thus the emphasis in Christian education ought not to be what Christian educators are doing to redeem the culture, but on what God is bringing to the Church in order to redeem sinners. Only by recognizing that all human knowledge claims in every sphere are inherently theological and that God is truly seen in and experienced through knowledge of all things, will a distinctly Christian education be forged. Christian education must primarily emphasize the reintegration or redemption of teachers brought through right knowledge of Jesus that comes through every subject discipline and expressed in a life balanced on Sabbath, work, and family.

Old School Ties Book Review:

Friends and enemies reunited! A brilliantly entertaining novel from the author of THE SECRET SHOPPER'S REVENGE. Your school days are supposed to be the best days of your life - and Tracey Mortimer has no argument with that. Sixteen years ago she was the most popular girl in school, ruled her own gang, and dated the cutest boy in her year. Now it's all rather different: she's 33, stuck in a dull marriage that's only tolerable because her husband is rarely at home. And although she dearly loves her two children, a life of kids TV and alphabetti spaghetti is hardly exciting... Then Tracey spots an advert from a TV company wanting to make a reality-style show on a perfect school reunion - giving Tracey the chance to re-live the good old days. But not all her old school classmates remember their school days quite as Tracey does. Tracey made Suzanne Sharp's life hell - so what better way to get her own back than revenge, live on national television...

New School Parents Old School Parenting Book Review:

Mothers can learn to worry less and fathers can learn to lead more with the book ?New School Parents-Old School Parenting? by Bryan and Carisma Rush. Does parenting seem harder today than it did in the past? For many new-school parents it definitely feels that way. Bryan and Carisma Rush of Rolla, MO have written a funny, practical and short book that relays the timeless, modest wisdom for parents to get their power back. Moms have more to worry about than ever before and their worry pertains to every facet of their child?s upbringing. Fathers seem to have drifted away from being the servant leaders of their children and risk losing their effectiveness in the home. This book uses humor, humility, and helpful tips to teach old school wisdom for today?s parents. New School Parents-Old School Parenting promotes the belief that time-tested, traditional parenting methods are the most effective way to raise children and keep your sanity. It is a rejection of the overwhelmingly frustrating new-aged ideas and a salute to the traditional parenting. The book empowers parents to lead, relax and raise their children to be adults; not perfect children. The book came together over much conversation with parents, grandparents, adult children and respective leaders about being modern day mommies and daddies. It collects the advice from wise, parents, grandparents and empty-nesters and presents it in a modest way to be helpful to new-school mothers and fathers. Included are hilarious stories, admissions, quotes, complaints, discoveries and solutions from current and graduated parents of young children. Readers will enjoy reading this book and relating to the genuine wisdom being relayed.

Old School Book Review:

Old School is in session.... You have probably heard the term Old School, but what you might not know is that there is a concentrated effort to tear that school down. It’s a values thing. The anti–Old School forces believe the traditional way of looking at life is oppressive. Not inclusive. The Old School way may harbor microaggressions. Therefore, Old School philosophy must be diminished. Those crusading against Old School now have a name: Snowflakes. You may have seen them on cable TV whining about social injustice and income inequality. You may have heard them cheering Bernie Sanders as he suggested the government pay for almost everything. The Snowflake movement is proud and loud, and they don’t like Old School grads. So where are you in all this? Did you get up this morning knowing there are mountains to climb—and deciding how you are going to climb them? Do you show up on time? Do you still bend over to pick up a penny? If so, you’re Old School. Or did you wake up whining about safe spaces and trigger warnings? Do you feel marginalized by your college’s mascot? Do you look for something to get outraged about, every single day, so you can fire off a tweet defending your exquisitely precious sensibilities? Then you’re a Snowflake. So again, are you drifting frozen precipitation? Or do you matriculate at the Old School fountain of wisdom? This book will explain the looming confrontation so even the ladies on The View can understand it. Time to take a stand. Old School or Snowflake. Which will it be?

Old School Book Review:

At one prestigious American public school, the boys like to emphasise their democratic ideals -the only acknowledged snobbery is literary snobbery. Once a term, a big name from the literary world visits and a contest takes place. The boys have to submit a piece of writing and the winner receives a private audience with the visitor. But then it is announced that Hemingway, the boys' hero, is coming to the school. The competition intensifies, and the morals the school and the boys pride themselves on - honour, loyalty and friendship - are crumbling under the strain. Only time will tell who will win and what it will cost them.

Old School Love Book Review:

RUN DMC.’s iconic rapper Joseph “Reverend Run” Simmons and his wife, Justine, share their secrets to lasting love and the guiding principles that have kept them together for more than twenty years. Written with Amy Ferris. This is a book about love. The kind of love that will keep you warm at night—that will keep you feeling safe and sound. The kind of love that will get you through some dark times; get you through some hard and yes, some tough times. The kind of love that will make you laugh, that will make you smile, that will make you nod knowingly. The kind of love that is nurtured and watered and grows—from a seedling to a flower. The kind of love that is desperately needed in the world right now, shared and sprinkled everywhere. Old School Love is a book to help you find the kind of soul-filling love you desire, written by a couple who has built a strong and joyful relationship amid the pressures, pitfalls, and temptations of the entertainment industry. Rev Run and his wife, Justine, have been blessed with a devoted partnership that has inspired others. In this homage to classic courtship, Rev and Justine reveal the secrets to their marriage’s longevity and happiness. Each chapter of Old School Love offers stories, anecdotes, and memories of Rev and Justine’s marriage, their family, their experiences, their passion, and their deep faith and belief in God. Some will make you laugh, some will make you think, and some will make you cry. Yet all will make you wiser—more beautiful for the wear—and encourage you to be a kinder, more generous, and better human. Their reflections are bookended by a verse or line from scripture, a saying, or a favorite quote and a sampling of personal wisdom. Over two decades strong, Rev and Justine’s partnership is an inspiration. With Old School Love they are spreading their message of positivity, and creating a legacy for all of us to embrace and share. Powerful and life-changing, this little gem of a book is about magic, and miracles, and yes, the irrefutable power of love. Old School Love includes 8 pages of photos from Rev and Justine's personal collection.

Old School Book Review:

Go inside the world of pro-wrestling from its earliest days in 1947 to 1968. Mafia connections. Fixed matches. Urban legends. Raw and riveting, here's a novel that asks the question, "Did wrestling make TV or did TV make wrestling?" Jack Fitzpatrick learned from the best, his pops, Charlie Fitzpatrick, a mob-connected prize fighter. But Jack doesn't want to follow in his father's footsteps. He wants to go his own way into a new form of ringside sport-wrestling. With a boost from the mob, Jack moves forward in his quest to bring wrestling to the masses. Running the east coast territory and sitting as the commissioner of the United Wrestling League, Jack, AKA Caesar, dominates all aspects of professional wrestling. By the late 1960s, Jack decides it's time to shake things up with the Belgian Behemoth, a 7' 6" giant, chosen as the next UWL champ. If his scheme, backed by the other promoters across the country, fails then Jack's reign will be over. Deceptions and subterfuge lurk around every arena as Jack makes empty promises while Gizzi pulls the strings. The other promoters distrust each other as fathers groom sons to wrestle, win, and wrangle their way to the top. Jack's son, Jackie, and, Val, the son he never knew he had until it was too late, vie for the top role in Jack's legacy. As a media mogul in Atlanta begins taking over, wrestling may have found a way to the mainstream. It's a crap shoot as to who will succeed and who will be pushed out of the sport or off the cliff. From New York to Toronto to Detroit to Atlanta to Florida and to the west, the promoters-many of whom are former wrestling champs-make up the territories for the sport. None of them know exactly who to trust. Is it Jack? Gizzi? Both or neither? Failure will seal fates and the death toll hovers. Nothing is sacred and nothing is guaranteed in the smoky backrooms of a sport on either the brink of success via television or the edge of the abyss by its own shady and illegal activities. With a cast of unforgettable characters-Frank the Weasel, the Great Amir, Large Marge, Lou Appollo, Black Jack to name a few-L.A. Taylor draws the reader into the story and action with outrageous acts both inside the ring and out. Old School allows the reader a rare glimpse behind the curtain and into Madison Square Garden and the backrooms of the Copacabana where the likes of Ed Sullivan and Jackie Gleason make appearances. Even Jack Dempsey plays a role as a guest referee as a favor to Jack. Buy Old School, Ring Squared, Book 1, for an intimate look inside the world of pro-wrestling from its beginning through the explosion of the sport into the world of television. Neither would ever be the same.

Old School Photography is a must-have modern manual for learning how to create great photographs with a 35mm film camera. Famed YouTube personality Kai Wong expertly and humorously shares 100 essential tips for selecting and using film cameras, shooting with film and various lenses, and employing specific techniques to ensure you can get great results quickly. Known for his breadth of knowledge and quick wit, Kai Wong delivers an informative and entertaining read on how to take great film photos. • An informative and entertaining read on how to take great film photos • A must-have guide for those new to old-school film techniques • A much-needed book for the current resurgence of vintage 35mm film cameras Renewed interest in film photography has surged in the past few years, both among those rediscovering their past passion and those discovering it for the first time. Vintage cameras that had previously lost their value are now often worth more than they first sold for due to high demand amongst enthusiasts, students, and collectors. Film manufacturers have even started reissuing long discontinued stocks—for example, Kodak's much-loved and recently re-released classic Ektachrome slide film. In our modern world, billions of people have access to instantaneous photography on their mobile phones, but as a result there has been a resurgent desire for a more tactile, physical, unaltered, and thus honest medium. Much of which, ironically, ends up on the internet, with photography fans and influencers sharing their images across Instagram, Flickr, YouTube, and the like. More so than with digital photography, film photography requires a sense of craft, skill, patience, technical knowledge, and a trial-and-error process that results in a greater sense of accomplishment. Old School Photography is both enlightening and humorous, and attracts a new generation of fans who are eager to experiment with film cameras, make prints, and post their film photographs online.
