Designed to introduce and promote the use of case studies and strategic intentional interviews into the growing and developing of present and future youth workers, Learn Before You Leap provides an argument for the use of “problem centered learning” strategies that are common practices in the areas of the social sciences, leadership and business but not yet publicly developed or resourced in the growing field of youth ministry education. Learn Before You Leap also: Helps new youth workers process situations they’ll encounter through role play. Enables veteran youth workers to keep sharp and mentor younger youth workers and volunteers. Uses Problem Based Learning to help promote critical thinking and problem solving in the youth ministry context. Discusses the value and strategies for using interviews as a ministry development tool. Includes ten case studies each addressing issues common to youth ministry organized by topical focus and a fully developed interview worksheet on the given topic—appropriate to a formal class room setting, an online threaded discussion, an informal youth ministry network lunch, a one-on-one internship discussion over coffee, or an individual reading.

A compilation of nine studies from the Reproductive Health Study Group at the University of Dar es Salaam. They highlight the erosion of customary institutions that regulate procreation and express the meaning of gender and marriage. They show the failure of modern education to prepare the young for gendered adulthood. A central tenet of the work is that without an understanding of the dynamics of local customs and attitudes as well as their significance to the people who hold them, change initiated from without becomes ineffective and unsustainable.
The must-read summary of Michael Franzese's book: "I'll Make You An Offer You Can't Refuse: Insider Business Tips From a Former Mob Boss" This complete summary of the ideas from Michael Franzese's book "I'll Make You an Offer You Can't Refuse" shows how Michael Franzese, a former mob boss, puts forward an originally surprising, but convincing, hypothesis: organised crime is not profitable by accident. The men in charge have ingenuity and tenacity. In the 1980s, the President’s Commission on Organized Crime estimated organised crime generates more than $50 billion in revenues each year.

It advises to concentrate on the end goal at all times, and to eliminate any clutter which gets in the way of that. Always be judicious and measured in what you say, because it could come back to haunt you. Be a good listener. Remember at all times that success is self-defined, and work towards your goals, not anyone else’s. Added-value of this summary: • Save time • Understand the key concepts • Increase your business knowledge To learn more, read "I'll Make You an Offer You Can't Refuse" and discover this utterly compelling, entertaining, and valuable guide to achieve your goals.
