Product Description: The Refractive Thinker(r) celebrates the accomplishments of the doctoral scholars contained within the pages of their award winning Volume IV: Ethics, Leadership, and Globalization. The intent is to provide a forum for these authors to share their thoughts and expertise as they contribute to our expanse of knowledge in pursuits of the tenets of and philosophies of higher learning. The title of this series, The Refractive Thinker(r) was chosen intentionally to describe a new way of thinking. As a society, we often find ourselves between the dichotomies of either thinking within the box (thinking) or outside of the box (critical thinking). The Refractive Thinker(r) introduces the concept of refractive thinking - thinking beyond the box, perhaps even building a new box entirely. As a result, this series highlights the ability of these doctoral scholars to bend thought, to converge its very essence on the ability to obliquely pass through the perspective of another. The goal is to ask and ponder the right questions; to dare to think differently, to find new applications within unique and cutting edge dimensions, ultimately to lead where others may follow or to risk forging perhaps a new path entirely. The goal of this series is to provide additional guidance one might need as a citizen of the world. For Volume IV, these scholars and authors provide readers with new lenses with which to explore ambiguity and to navigate turbulent waters offering new paths to success. Topics will include ethics, leadership, and various global concerns currently affecting the business landscape. Discover additional answers to consider and the many pearls of wisdom offered within these pages. The Refractive Thinker(r) Press presents this collection of the works of thirteen scholarly authors affiliated with various institutions of higher learning to include topics such as: Ethics in Educational Leadership (Dr. Neysa T. Sensenig); Have We Tipped: Are We Ready to Demand Ethical Behavior From Our Leaders? (Dr. Sheila Embry); Physician Cultural Attitudes Towards Hospice Services (Dr. Karleen Yapp); Behavioral Integrity: The Precursor to Ethical Leadership (Dr. Cynthia Ann Roundy); How Understanding Impacts Ethics and Privacy (Dr. Tim Brueggemann); The Power of the River of Character in Organizations (Dr. Ramon Benedetto); The Impact That Ethics and Values Have on Leader-Follower Relationships (Dr. Susan K. Fan); Exploring the Transactional and Transformational Leadership Characteristics of Social Networking Communications ((Dr. Gail Ferreira); Globalization of Body Language (Dr. Judy Fisher-Blando) (Dr. T.G. Robinson) (Dr. Cheryl A. Lentz); Maximizing Debt Collection Performance Through Organizational Design Changes (Dr. Kaja Kroll); and Systems Theory: Changing the Hegemonic Impact on Leadership Advancement for Women (Dr. Beverley Carter). The Foreword is written by Cam Caldwell PhD with the conclusion written by Dr. Thomas M. Woodru

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
