The House of Black and White: My Life with and Search for Louise Johnson Morris is the memoir of a white boy who was so strongly influenced by a black woman - the family maid - that he begins searching for her three decades after she went missing. This compelling book begins in 1959 in suburban Washington, D.C., and ends in 2012. Author David Sherer was barely two years old when Louise Johnson Morris became the family maid in 1959. She grew close to the children, particularly David, and taught him many life lessons. During medical school in Boston, he discovered in 1981 that Louise had left the family. After unsuccessfully trying to learn why, he continued his life and career until late 2011, when during a mid-life crisis of sorts, he went looking for her. He eventually discovered that she was living back in her hometown of Macon, Georgia, and after a separation of thirty-one years, traveled to Macon to reunite with his childhood friend. She died a mere three months later, at the age of ninety. David was an honored guest at her funeral. This is the story of their lives together and his quest to find her. It is both a memoir and an homage, set in a highly charged time of our country's history. "The House of Black and White is an honest, evocative, and moving account of one man's search for connection amid the 20th-century minefield of race, class, and privilege." - Gary Krist, author of City of Scoundrels About the Author David Sherer majored in music at Emory University, with a concentration in piano. He is a practicing anesthesiologist and wrote the highly acclaimed book Dr. David Sherer's Hospital Survival Guide.

Are you in business, journalism, law enforcement, or medicine? Do you face students in a classroom or criminals in a courtroom? Are you in a relationship or looking for one? Do you have children? Then you need the skills to read them like a book! I Can Read You Like a Book features a system for scanning and interpreting anyone's body language, enabling you to figure out what they are really saying or feeling: Review: Check out someone quickly, from head to toe. Evaluate: Know what to look for; notice what's relevant. Analyze: Spot voluntary versus involuntary movements; factor in gender, context, culture. Decide: Draw your conclusion. Step by step, you will develop the same skills the best interrogators and detectives use to assess spies, criminals, and witnesses. As part of the process, you will observe some of the most famous people in the world through interrogator Greg Hartley's eyes. You'll discover what emotions these politicians, pundits, and stars are leaking through their body language and facial expressions, and what their answers (or non-answers) are really saying. I Can Read You Like a Book gives you the fastest, most efficient method to read body language. In any kind of face-to-face competition, first encounters or daily encounters, and even watching the news, you will spot the messages and emotions that people are really sending—whether they know it or not. As a bonus, you will learn how to use your own face and body to your advantage, whether you're trying to evade a difficult question, handle a sensitive situation, or just playing poker!
