Susan Peirce Thompson

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

"This book is not like anything else out there. Not even close. Dr. Thompson has illuminated the reasons why so many of us are so addicted to today’s food supply and why obesity is so common. Most importantly, she outlines the path to freedom, thinness, and health. Freedom from the tyranny of the scale, of fast foods, of carb addiction. All of it. Your life will be changed. This book is based not only on the personal experiences of thousands, but also backed up by solid brain science that has never been presented like this before." — Christiane Northrup, MD New York Times bestselling author of Goddesses Never Age

William Rempel

NATIONAL BESTSELLER

“Chockablock with dialogue and intimate detail assembled by deep research… All sorts of celebrities—in business, sports, and elsewhere—glide through the text, including tennis star Andre Agassi; Mike Tyson, whose infamous ear-biting episodes occurred at a fight in Kerkorian's MGM Grand Hotel in Vegas; fellow business magnate Lee Iacocca; Elvis Presley; and Cary Grant, one of Kerkorian's good friends… [The Gambler] is the compelling story of a Horatio Alger." — Kirkus Reviews

Michael Shnayerson

A Publisher's Weekly Top 10 Political Book of the Season

"Cuomo, in Shnayerson’s telling, was the young campaign operative who shimmied up telephone poles in Queens in the dead of night to take down his father Mario’s opponent’s campaign posters, and would do just about anything if it meant winning." — Capitol New York

Douglas Kennedy

“The best book about Morocco since The Sheltering Sky. Completely absorbing and atmospheric.” — Philip Kerr

David Bodanis

"Writer and futurist Bodanis imparts fresh insight into the genius—and failures—of the 20th century’s most celebrated scientist...This provocative biography illuminates the human flaws that operate subtly in the shadows of scientific endeavor." — Publishers Weekly

Lindsay Jill Roth

"Fun, fresh and pulling no punches, What Pretty Girls Are Made Of, will be the book of 2015 for all women who’ve ever worked for a nightmare boss and lived to tell the tale, and who've chased love until realizing that it can't be chased. Brimming with chutzpa in the powdered face of a truly toxic boss, Alison is the anti-Hannah Horvath, an immensely likeable tour-guide through the underbelly of an industry that peddles perfection. We cringe with her, root for her, and thank God we will never have to do our twenties again." — Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus, bestselling authors of The Nanny Diaries and Nanny Returns

Richard Cohen

"The highest compliment one can pay “How to Write Like Tolstoy” is that it provokes an overwhelming urge to read and write, to be in dialogue or even doomed competition with the greatest creative minds… That Mr. Cohen is an editor, that his love of literature comes in large part from awe in the presence of better writers than he, is no small matter. His love is infectious, and regardless of how well he ends up teaching us to write, that is miracle enough." — Stefan Beck, The Wall Street Journal

“An elegant, chatty how-to book on writing well, using the lessons of many of the world’s best writers . . . [Cohen] draws on plentiful advice from past and present literary titans. . . . The process of gathering advice from prominent contemporary authors such as Francine Prose, Jonathan Franzen, and Nick Hornby gives Cohen the opportunity to tell any number of amusing, often discursive stories about great literature and authors, mixed with the writers’ own observations.” — Publishers Weekly

Juliana Barbassa

"[Barbassa's] interviews with police, prostitutes, drug dealers, ecologists, businesspeople, academics, movers and shakers, and the moved and shaken offer a fascinating look at the people who live in and aspire to change one of the world’s most impressive cities." — Booklist

James C. Goodale

"An engaging work which underlines the importance of fighting for a free press. Without press freedom, informed public debate is curtailed and democratic accountability diminished." — Kofi Annan

"James Goodale is an American treasure and so is Fighting for the Press. This is a story worthy of John Grisham, except this one actually happened; it is fact, not fiction – and it’s still unfolding." — Dan Rather

Rajeev Peshawaria

In a sea of leadership guides, this new offering rises to the top with its gripping insights that will inspire reflection and action in leaders and managers at all levels…Peshawaria's book ought to become required reading for all business people--from students to executives. — Publishers Weekly Starred Review
