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

Cait Flanders

WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER

A game-changing read for anyone searching for simplicity in our consumer-focused world." — Rachel Jonat, author of The Joy of Doing Nothing

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

Rajeev Peshawaria

WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER

"Rajeev Peshawaria's counterintuitive new book details an "open source" management system geared to today's unique pressures and opportunities. Unlike so many leadership books, which traffic in platitudes and obvious insights, Peshwaria provokes readers into seeing a big picture most might have missed. OPEN SOURCE LEADERSHIP will help anyone in any organization trying to surf the tumultuous waves of the 21st century business.” — Daniel H. Pink, author of DRIVE and TO SELL IS HUMAN

Chris Bailey

"Hyperfocus does a remarkable job of unpacking the realities, obstacles, and best practices of managing the subtle but ever-present world of our conscious attention. All of us can get better at how, when, and on what we focus; and this is an extraordinary, eye-opening and research based report of what affects us in this regard, and how to take advantage of this information to achieve greater satisfaction in our lives." — David Allen, author of Getting Things Done

Nicola Kraus & Emma McLaughlin

"McLaughlin and Kraus have done something much more interesting by making Rory funny, self-aware and supremely competent: a fully realized human being. The joy of this book is not wondering whether she will succeed, but watching her do it. Rory is a modern damsel in distress who doesn't wait for a prince to rescue her, but pulls on her boots and strides out to slay the dragon herself." — Eliza Kennedy, The New York Times Book Review

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

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

Ginny Gilder

"Beautiful and important on so many levels, Course Correction is about rowing and about so much more–hope and hopelessness, fear and courage, loss and redemption. Ultimately it is about the transforming power of love, and, dammit all, it made me cry." — Daniel James Brown, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of The Boys in the Boat

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

Lisa Freeman

"Where was this book when I was fifteen? Honey Girl is a daring debut. A fierce story of female friendship, earned acceptance, and following the unwritten rules of Southern California beach boy and girl culture in the '70s." — Jamie Lee Curtis

Bower Yousse and Thomas J. Cryan

"When we measure the life of Freddie Steinmark with the unyielding definition of a calendar, his time was short. But his story is nonetheless timeless. When we measure by the passion and purpose displayed on the pages of this book, the story of Freddie Steinmark will never go away." — Jeffrey Marx, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of the New York Times Bestseller Season of Life

Nina Darnton

"This haunting page-turner will keep you up all night and be long remembered after the last page has been read." — Mary Higgins Clark, Author

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

Randi Zinn

“Randi Zinn is an emerging voice in the motherhood space whose focus is cultivating community. We all know how important it is for women to feel supported as they journey into new motherhood. Randi has taken her own life experience and Beyond Mom journey and put it into this book to elevate and inspire moms as they take baby steps towards reclaiming who they are after birth.” — Latham Thomas, founder of Mama Glow, and bestselling author of Mama Glow: A Hip Guide to Your Fabulous Abundant Pregnancy

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

Allison Winn Scotch

Scotch specializes in heroines at a crossroads, questioning their life choices and preparing to embark on journeys of self-discovery. . . . [She] creates eminently relatable characters, with a particularly excellent understanding of the way sisters interact, and has the ability to craft scenes of real emotional weight. — Booklist

Brian O'Reilly

An utterly delightful debut novel from cookbook author and TV cooking-show producer O’Reilly. Filled with more than 20 (fairly complicated) recipes for Angelina’s gourmet fare, the food is only half of the novel’s winning ingredient—O’Reilly’s keen ear for the neighborhood swells lends a charming, timeless quality to the tale. Light comedy and good food make a winning combination. — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
