Where you go is not who you'll be : an antidote to the college admissions mania by Frank Bruni( Book )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 1,326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last few decades, Americans have turned college admissions into a terrifying and occasionally devastating process, preceded by test prep, tutors, all sorts of stratagems, all kinds of rankings, and a conviction among too many young people that their futures will be determined and their worth established by which schools say yes and which say no. That belief is wrong. It's cruel. And in WHERE YOU GO IS NOT WHO YOU'LL BE, Frank Bruni explains why, giving students and their parents a new perspective on this brutal, deeply flawed competition and a path out of the anxiety that it provokes. Bruni, a bestselling author and a columnist for the New York Times, shows that the Ivy League has no monopoly on corner offices, governors' mansions, or the most prestigious academic and scientific grants. Through statistics, surveys, and the stories of hugely successful people who didn't attend the most exclusive schools, he demonstrates that many kinds of colleges-large public universities, tiny hideaways in the hinterlands-serve as ideal springboards. And he illuminates how to make the most of them. What matters in the end are a student's efforts in and out of the classroom, not the gleam of his or her diploma. Where you go isn't who you'll be. Americans need to hear that-and this indispensable manifesto says it with eloquence and respect for the real promise of higher education"--
A gospel of shame : children, sexual abuse and the Catholic Church by Elinor Burkett( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opening with the story of James Porter, a former priest scheduled to be tried in late 1993 for mass molestation, the book uses interviews with victims to examine children's unique vulnerability to priests and with priest abusers to explore their dangerous isolation. It documents the failure of prosecutors, judges, psychologists and reporters to monitor bishops, who spend millions of dollars to protect the Church's image rather than its believers. Finally, it dares to ask - and answer - the question of why such a seemingly disproportionate number of priests molest children. Without indicting the Church, Burkett and Bruni argue that the demands of the priesthood and the hierarchical structure decreed by Rome foster a climate perilous to the young. Their insights are culled from extensive interviews with many of the nation's foremost experts on child sexual abuse and even some of the Catholic Church's most respected American bishops

Where you go is not who you'll be : an antidote to the college admissions mania by Frank Bruni( Recording )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A manifesto that puts the college admissions process into desperately needed perspective. It not only dissects the limited meaning of a rigged and sometimes random admissions process, it also discusses many of the hugely successful Americans who didn't go to Ivy League schools. Profiles young adults who were denied their dream colleges but found that the schools where they ended up were perfect for them. The attitude with which a student approaches college matters more than the college itself

A matter of taste : serving up Paul Liebrandt( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A matter of taste takes an intimate look inside the world of an immensely talented and driven young chef, Paul Liebrandt. At 24, he was awarded three stars by The New York Times for unforgettable and hyper-modern dishes such as "eel, violets and chocolate," "espuma of calf brains and foie gras," and "beer and truffle soup." Times critic William Grimes likened Paul to "a pianist who seems to have found a couple of dozen extra keys." Conversely, Gourmet critic Jonathan Gold called Paul's food "the result of a failed science experiment." He soon became a chef critics loved or loved to hate. The film follows Paul over a decade and reveals his creative process in the kitchen, as well as the extreme hard work, long hours, and dedication it takes to be a successful culinary artist in the cutthroat world of haute cuisine in New York City. Featuring an A-List of culinary luminaries including Grant Achatz, Heston Blumenthal, Frank Bruni, Mike Colameco, William Grimes, Thomas Keller, Drew Nierporent and Eric Ripert, A matter of taste explores the complicated relationships between food critics, chefs and restaurant owners as it delves into the life of an uncompromising, thought provoking, young chef ahead of his time. WINNER! James Beard Award- Best Documentary or Special

Ambling into history : the unlikely odyssey of George W. Bush by Frank Bruni( Recording )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

[The author], the principal New York Times reporter assigned to cover George W. Bush's presidential campaign and first eight months in the White House, mines the countless hours during which he observed and interacted with Bush to present sides of the president that readers have never encountered. He looks to small moments for big truths, going behind the scenes and offering fresh insights into Bush's often chronicled weaknesses, sometimes overlooked strengths, and his journey - alternately earnest and reluctant - from an innate levity to a newfound gravity. [He] also takes readers on his own trip through the strange maze of presidential politics, wryly chronicling life in the insular "bubble" of political reporting and its frequently dispiriting effect on the coverage that politicians get.-Back cover

In a career at The New York Times that has spanned two decades, Frank Bruni has been the paper's Rome bureau chief, head restaurant critic, White House correspondent, and staff writer for its Sunday magazine, among other positions. In 2011 he became the Times' first openly gay op-ed columnist. Before these successes he was a Pulitzer Prize-nominated writer for the Detroit Free Press. Bruni's first two books, Ambling into History: The Unlikely Odyssey of George W. Bush and Born Round: The Secret History of a Full-Time Eater, met with critical acclaim and wide popularity.
