A Dedicated Life
In this inspiring memoir, “an unfailing champion for all children . . . shares his ever- committed life story . . . What an example he is for all of us” (Marian Wright Edelman, President of the Children’s Defense Fund). After spending three decades in journalism as a newspaper reporter, editor and publisher, Dave Lawrence dedicated his life to a new mission: making sure every child has a real chance to succeed. A prominent advocate for children across the country, David helped found The Children’s Movement of Florida, an organization that launched in 2010 with the purpose of making Florida’s children, especially in their early years, the top priority for state investment. In A Dedicated Life, David tells his story from his time at the Detroit Free Press and the Miami Herald to his “retirement” at fifty-six, when he transitioned into his new calling and began making significant strides in Florida’s pre-K programs, parent skill-building, and so much more. “This special book is the story of a good man who has lived an impressive, fascinating, full life dedicated to his family, his profession, his faith and his service to others, especially the youngest and most vulnerable among us.” —Jeb Bush, Florida’s 43rd Governor “[A] highly principled man applying his talents and values in a transitioning America.” —Bob Graham, Florida’s 38th Governor and former Senator

Environmental Impact Assessment
This book challenges the prevailing assumption that Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) should be structured around a unitary EIA process. The book begins by identifying, through a scenario, eight recurrent problems in EIA practice. The characteristics of multiple variations of conventional EIA processes, at both the regulatory and applied levels, are then presented. The residual problems that remain after the conventional processes are described and assessed providing the springboard for a description and analysis of eight alternative EIA processes.

Invading God's Possible Universe
Invading God’s Universe is about David Lawrence’s attempt to adjust to the possibility of God. He seeks his own soul but isn’t even sure that he has a soul. He sees himself as a book written by heaven or maybe not. He is confused and searching. He boldly says that “what God likes about me is that I reject him.” God does not need our belief. He is himself. He is God. David wrestles with God and feels that God likes it that way. He doesn’t want to bother God. He doesn’t want to annoy him by his “selfishness / And demanding prayers.” He feels that God “dislikes religion. / And settles for the spirit.” God is not formulaic. He is love. Love is not codification. It is free spirit. David feels God's presence when he is alone. He does not like gatherings for prayer because he wants to have his own direct connection with God. He does not read the Bible. He is the Bible. He is God’s text. He is written. God is or isn't the pen. He is a Doubting Thomas but he doesn't doubt that he feels a cosmic presence within him.

The State of American Hot Rodding
As the automotive world looks towards a future of electric vehicles, driverless technology and anonymous styling, what can be learned from the individuals who resist these trends and cling to their love of street rods and muscle cars? The hot rodding world still exists, but will it continue to hold a place in tomorrow’s automotive culture? Gearhead and geographer David Miller has crisscrossed America in his custom built 1958 Chevy Apache pickup, interviewing hot rodders about what drives their passions, values and way of life. Their collected stories present a detailed portrait of modern hot rodding—a distinctly American subculture that survives by bucking the trends and attitudes that increasingly shape the transportation landscape.
