"Randa, what's wrong with you?" "Nothing. I mean, I'm a crazy cocaine addict with a hankering for heroin, but other than that, I'm just a nice Jewish girl from the Upper East Side with Prada shoes. How could anything be wrong?" Molly Jong-Fast's Normal Girl is striking-and as funny as it as real. Inspired by her own experiences growing up in the decadent, fast-paced netherworld of New York City's jet set, Jong-Fast's debut novel is a hilarious, hard-edged walk past the velvet rope. At just nineteen, Miranda Woke seems to have it all. Her parents are famous socialites, she's already been written up on Page Six sixteen times, she's on all the right invitation lists, and drugs and alcohol are never in short supply. But while her image screams "It girl," she'd rather be a normal girl, and the A-list feels even more uncomfortable than her Manolo Blahnik shoes. In fact, she's become the "living embodiment of an awkward phase" with "more issues than Harper's Bazaar." Neither Xanax nor Deepak Chopra tapes help. And now that her junkie party has trashed her parents' house, she has to liquidate her trust fund to pay Mom's decorator for a quick fix. But worst of all, Miranda thinks she just murdered her own boyfriend. In an all-too-glamorous world where the cell phone is always ringing, Miranda sees no escape other than a downward spiral of cocaine, Valium, and heroin. It takes friends who offer more than air kisses to force Miranda to look in the mirror and get some help.

“No football fan will want to miss this one.” —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY “A searing character study…a breathless, can’t-put-it-down read.” —LOS ANGELES TIMES “As savvy, dirt-dishing expose.” —KIRKUS REVIEWS From nationally-acclaimed journalist and ESPN commentator Skip Bayless, the newly updated eBook edition of the classic bestseller GOD'S COACH. First published in 1990, this unforgettable expose tears the metallic blue shine off the legendary star, revealing the truth about ‘America’s Team’ and its beloved head coach Tom Landry, whose much-regaled Christian charity extended to strangers everywhere, yet stopped short of the team who labored under him. From the hangover that led Jerry Jones to buy the team, to the wild ride of the Staubach era, Bayless strips away the image of the team created by the most powerful PR machine in sports, revealed by insiders willing to break their silence. Packed with unparalleled insight into one of the most storied franchises in the history of sports, GOD'S COACH is a compelling revelation about a corrupt football franchise that dared call itself America’s Team. Skip Bayless appears daily as the host of ESPN’s First Take; his commentary appears regularly on A former columnist for the Dallas Morning News, DALLAS TIMES HERALD, CHICAGO TRIBUNE, and SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, and sportswriter for the LOS ANGELES TIMES and MIAMI HERALD. In addition to GOD'S COACH, he is the author of THE BOYS and HELL-BENT.

Creative workers have been celebrated internationally for their flexibility in new labour markets centred on culture, creativity and, most recently, innovation. This book draws on research with novice and established workers in a range of specializations in order to explore the meanings, aspirations and practical difficulties associated with a creative identification. It investigates the difficulties and attractions of creative work as a personalized, affect-laden project of self-making, perpetually open and oriented to possibility, uncertain in its trajectory or rewards. Employing a cross-disciplinary methodology and analytic approach, the book investigates the new cultural meanings in play around a creative career. It shows how classic ideals of design and the creative arts, re-interpreted and promoted within contemporary art schools, validate the lived experience of precarious working in the global sectors of the creative and cultural industries, yet also contribute to its conflicts. 'Contemporary Identities of Creativity and Creative Work' presents a distinctive study and original findings which make it essential reading for social scientists, including social psychologists, with an interest in cultural and media studies, creativity, identity, work and contemporary careers.

The terminal diagnosis is given, the knock on the door comes, and someone you love is dying or has just died. Death happens every day, yet as one hospital chaplain said, “Most of the time we just live life as if it isn’t an issue until it’s in our face.” It’s not as if death is a secret. It’s on the news and in the newspaper daily, but we don’t talk about it very much, almost pretending as if it won’t happen to us or our loved ones. But by not talking and not preparing, we make dying and death scarier and more difficult than it needs to be. That is one of the messages that the storytellers in What Obituaries Don’t Tell You: Conversations about Life and Death want to impart. Talk and prepare is a theme repeated over and over. In these stories and interviews you are sure to find people and narratives that are meaningful to you, helping you heal from loss, assuring you that you are not alone in your experiences, and allowing you to find your voice and speak your truth in your own conversations about life and death. You may also be surprised. Did you know that there is a strong correlation between whether a death is deemed good or bad, easy or difficult, and the relationships in a person’s life, including one’s relationship to religious or spiritual beliefs? Whether you are a person who has lost a loved one, a person thinking about your own death and wanting to prepare for it, or a student or professional preparing to or already working with issues of death in any way, you may find that the information that helps you the most is not imparted to you in obituaries but in the stories behind the scenes.

College is risky business. Life is hurled into never-before imagined freedom, independence, and choice. For many students, college brings challenges and changes in nearly every area of life—physical, physiological, emotional, social, residential, financial, spiritual, and sexual. College may well be the most volatile time in a person’s life. Attending college is bad for your health. Statistically, young adults face more depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and drug addiction than in any other time in their lives. Schizophrenia emerges most often during this time. Suicide rate is highest between 16–21 years. A college student’s lifestyle is a potential threat to their successful academic performance. The good news is that, with the right tools, students can create a college experience that is healthy, successful, and fits their own unique selves. Lifestyles for Learning explores the direct relationship between academic performance and key lifestyle factors: food, sleep, stress, movement, creativity, connection, addiction, and giving. It further discusses how lifestyle factors are challenged by learning disabilities and other co-occurring diagnoses, such as ADHD and behavioral disorders. Lifestyles for Learning offers guidance to prepare every college student for success. Peppered with humorous anecdotes and warm-hearted wisdom, this is important reading for students entering college, as well as for parents, educators, counselors, doctors, psychologists, and educational consultants. It is also designed for supplemental reading in college and high school courses.
