We all remember the fairy tales of science in our infancy, which played with the supposition that large animals could jump in the proportion of small ones. If an elephant were as strong as a grasshopper, he could (I suppose) spring clean out of the Zoological Gardens and alight trumpeting upon Primrose Hill. If a whale could leap from the sea like a trout, perhaps men might look up and see one soaring above Yarmouth like the winged island of Laputa. Such natural energy, though sublime, might certainly be inconvenient, and much of this inconvenience attended the gaiety and good intentions of the man in green. He was too large for everything, because he was lively as well as large. By a fortunate physical provision, most very substantial creatures are also reposeful; and middle-class boarding-houses in the lesser parts of London are not built for a man as big as a bull and excitable as a kitten.

Manalive concerns Innocent Smith, a mysterious man who arrives as the new tenant at Beacon House, a London boarding establishment. This man is accompanied by a great wind and he breathes new life into the household with his games and antics. During his first day in residence the eccentric Smith creates the High Court of Beacon and helps several other tenants to accomplish some great deeds. However, when the household is at its happiest two doctors appear with awful news: Smith is wanted on charges of burglary, desertion of a spouse, polygamy, and attempted murder. Before Smith can be taken to a jail or an asylum, one of the tenants declares that the case falls under the purview of the High Court of Beacon and suggests that the household investigate the matter before involving the authorities or the press. Although things do not look good for Smith, evidence presented to the court will throw a new light on his convictions.

Here is a stunning new book that succeeds in doing nothing less than chronicling the social transformation of masculinity over a three-decade span. Through thematically arranged essays by leading experts, Voice Male illustrates how a growing movement of men is redefining masculinity. In this collection, Rob Okun directs a chorus of pro-feminist voices, introducing readers to men examining contemporary manhood from a variety of perspectives: from overcoming violence, fatherhood, and navigating life as a man of color, a gay man, or a boy on the journey to manhood. It also provides a critical forum for both male survivors and GBTQ men to speak out. This inspired book is evidence of a new direction for men, brightly illuminating what’s around the bend on the path to gender justice.

Juliet Rosetti’s steamy Escape Diaries series—perfect for fans of Kristan Higgins and Susan Elizabeth Phillips—continues as Mazie’s on-again, off-again relationship with certified hottie Ben Labeck simmers out of control. Mazie Maguire doesn’t need some lousy awards panel to tell her what she already knows: Ben Labeck—the chiseled, 6'3" photojournalist and hockey player who drives her wild—is the Sexiest Man Alive. And she especially doesn’t need the rest of the world to know it, too. Watching every last woman in the Milwaukee metro area throw themselves at the man who shares Mazie’s bed is more than any respectable single lady should bear. So when Ben has the nerve to “forget” to call for a week, Mazie decides to call it off for good. But as she jumps back into the dating game, Mazie catches the attention of some real bad boys: The Skulls. When the motorcycle gang kidnaps Mazie in a case of mistaken identity, she suddenly sees Ben’s behavior in a whole new light. She’d do anything to wake up in Ben’s surprisingly tender arms one more time—so long as the Sexiest Man Alive doesn’t go and get himself killed trying to save her. Praise for The Sexiest Man Alive “Juliet Rosetti once again has written a funny and romantic story.”—Aya M. Productions “I’m hopeful that there will be more Mazie and Ben in the near future.”—Twin Spin “If you have been craving a good series full of romance, laughter, excitement and suspense you really can’t miss out on these amazing books.”—Globug & Hootie Need a Book Praise for the Mazie Maguire series Tangled Thing Called Love “With humor to rival Sophie Kinsella and romance and mystery akin to Janet Evanovich, [Juliet] Rosetti’s title has something to appeal to most contemporary romance fans.”—Library Journal “I highly suggest that anyone who enjoys fun, funny, romantic mysteries, similar in heart to Janet Evanovich’s work, check out Juliet Rosetti’s Tangled Thing Called Love.”—Aya M. Productions “The banter between Mazie and Ben is still sharp and witty.”—Clue Review Crazy for You “Mazie is a klutz in the spirit of Stephanie Plum. . . .

'The ultimate guide on how to stay healthy as a man, both physically and mentally' JASON FOX, EX-SPECIAL FORCES AND BESTSELLING AUTHOR Being a man is bad for your health. Not only do men have a greater chance of getting almost every illness but they die sooner too: one in five men die before the age of 65. So why do so many men still accept poor health as a consequence of 'just getting older'? In MAN ALIVE, Dr Jeff Foster, men's health specialist and private GP, examines the most commonly misunderstood aspects of men's health, such as testosterone deficiency and 'male menopause', heart disease, diabetes and mental health. He also looks at conditions related to male anatomy and physiology, including erectile dysfunction and prostate disease, with advice on what symptoms and signs to look for, how to self-examine, and when to consider seeing a doctor. Dr Foster covers problems to do with lifestyle too, including obesity, poor sleep, bad nutrition, and lack of exercise, and he examines the evidence for specific health claims - busting plenty of myths along the way. 'An immensely useful and practical guide, answering the questions that every man has about their day-to-day health' IAN MARBER 'Many men avoid going to the doctor as they fear their concerns are either embarrassing or they will not be taken seriously. This book will empower men with the right information to change this' DR LOUISE NEWSON

You Don’t Have to Settle Over the last four decades, I’ve met one-on-one with thousands of men. Most of them know that Jesus promised “a rich and satisfying life” (John 10:10), but too many are confused about what that looks like. In fact, I’d estimate that 90 percent of Christian men lead lukewarm, stagnant, defeated lives—and they hate it. When men try to put into words what’s holding them back, they invariably describe one or more of these seven symptoms: • “I just feel like I’m in this thing alone.” • “I don’t feel like God cares about me personally—not really.” • “I don’t feel like my life has a purpose. In fact, it seems random.” • “I have destructive behaviors that keep dragging me down.” • “My soul feels dry.” • “My most important relationships are not working.” • “I don’t feel like I’m doing anything that will make a lasting difference.” Do you see yourself in these statements? In my experience, these inner aches and pains correspond to seven primal God-given needs that all men feel deeply. And in Man Alive, I’ll show you something surprising—God’s plan to harness that raw, restless energy you feel, pull you out of mediocrity, and propel you toward the life you were meant to live. I promise you…there is a way. No man should have to settle for half alive. You can become the man God created you to be. You can experience a powerful life transformed by Christ. In this book, I’ll show you how. Patrick Morley, PhD.

Stalling in life's middle lane? Time for a change of gear... Man Alive is an hilarious novel that perfectly captures the highs and lows of modern family life, from acclaimed author Dave Hill. Perfect for fans of David Nicholls' Us or Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project. Derek Hawker is getting on a bit but he's a good and successful chap. He has provided for his children, been faithful to his wife and as a visionary manager with the vast Bluelake retail mall he's at the peak of his career. But surely there is more to life than his half-baked, bite-sized chunk? Meanwhile his wife has gone off travelling around the world for a year off being a mother, and their two late-teen children are rebelling against their parent's values. Man Alive is a novel about teen wars, teenage angst and parents who refuse to grow old gracefully. It is warm, witty, insightful, humane and very funny. What readers are saying about Dave Hill's novels: 'Enjoyable, witty and well observed' 'The quality and depth of the characters see this book through with flying colours' 'Narrative drive, gritty realism and sheer laugh-out-loud wit'
