              Learn what sets high achievers apart in this riveting tale of triumph over tragedy. When faced with a tragedy such as losing a job, enduring abuse, or struggling with addiction, 85% of people crumble. But, for the remaining 15%, surviving such trauma makes them stronger. For 15%,... surviving makes them not only successful, but unstoppable. You don't have to endure pain to achieve such success. In this groundbreaking book, Terry Giles takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of the fifteen percent. He breaks down the qualities of the most famous, most accomplished examples of high achievers in his own life and career, answering the question: what makes these people different. The key to understanding the 15% is understanding where they come from. Giles examines how culture, upbringing, and generational values shape the mindsets of the 15%. Along with fascinating stories from a lifetime of Giles's own work as a criminal attorney and business tycoon, he reveals untold secrets to success that anyone can implement. For example, you'll learn: How to harness fear of failure to your advantage Why playing it safe is the fastest way to the bottom How to shrug off setbacks once and for all and move forward Brilliant and entertaining, The Fifteen Percent is a masterpiece that will change the way you look at the lives of those around you, and transform your world view like nothing you've ever read.

              While recognizing the contribution of literary criticism, performance analysis enriches literary analysis by bridging the written word to its oral world. This book has two major components: the development of performance analysis methodology and the application of that methodolog...y to portions of the prophetic texts found in the Hebrew bible.

              The Story of Naomi-The Book of Ruth (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The book of Ruth is probably best known as a romantic love story that, through the expression of loving devotion, overcomes tragedy and ends with the founding of the most famous family in all of biblical Israel. But the book wasn't always this way. In fact, it wasn't a book at al...l but rather a story told with a very different purpose in mind. Before Ruth, there was the Story of Naomi, a subversive story designed to challenge a male-dominated status quo. Through comedy, sarcastic irony, and unparalleled rhetorical skill the Naomi storyteller holds up for inspection social gender roles and the power of sexuality in a manner that resonates yet today. The Story of Naomi--The Book of Ruth goes behind the literary rendition of the story and recaptures the original oral tale, with script and performance directions that brings to life the humor, tragedy, and transparent honesty shared between the Naomi storyteller and her audience.

An exquisite and daring performance of an ancient story that many dismiss as benign. Giles and Doan capture nuances of the book of Ruth that will delight readers and at the same time problematize twenty-first-century social norms. Bravo! --Louis Stulman, Professor of Religious Studies, University of Findlay Two very able scholars lead us into new (oral) perspectives of viewing biblical literature in general and the book of Ruth (really the story of Naomi) in particular. We experience rich new depths and dimensions of the human experience. --Robert T. Anderson, Professor of Religious Studies, Michigan State University With thorough research, grounded in the literature on the oral traditions of the Bible, Giles and Doan argue convincingly for the oral and subversive origins of the book of Ruth as part of a female storytelling tradition. After establishing the likelihood of an oral tradition, the second half of their book provides a script, complete with staging directions, for The Naomi Story, allowing modern performers to make the oral tradition o
