The spectacular fourth adventure in Peter Clines’s genre-busting Ex-Heroes series

Description: George Bailey, the protagonist of Ex-Heroes series author Peter Clines’s Ex-Purgatory, lives a fairly ordinary life as an unassuming janitor at a Los Angeles university. But lately George hasn’t been sleeping. And when he does sleep, his dreams are haunted by strange images of a world filled with monsters that look like dead people. When his nightmares begin bleeding into his waking life, he fears he’s losing his mind. Then a young woman named Madelyn shows up at his school, and tells him that the life he knows is just an illusion. In the real world, she claims, he’s an invincible superhero who just happens to be dating a supermodel. Of course, George dismisses her tale as a sadly deluded girl’s fantasy, but as more and more “strangers” from his dreams turn up in his real life, George can’t help wondering if there’s something to her story. In Ex-Heroes, Clines introduced fans to a brilliant cast of superheroes doing battle against the undead of a post-zombapocalyptic Los Angeles. With its genius plot twists and riveting action scenes, it quickly became a favorite among fans of such hits as Watchmen, World War Z, and Ready Player One. Ex-Purgatory is perhaps his most suspenseful book yet.

Networking For Recent College Grads: Some Assembly Required

Some Assembly Required

Description: Some Assembly Required is a book for recent grads from author and business leader Thom Singer. Singer has extensive experience with speaking, networking, and helping others to successfully further their own career goals through assisting others and building a professional network right where they are. And Some Assembly Required gives short, snappy, readable advice about finding work and setting up a career after high school or college graduation. Thom Singer's credo stems from a modern version of an old Chinese proverb: the best time to start networking was years ago, and the next best time is now! Affirming the value of interacting with others in person as well as online, he encourages people to go beyond the self-promoting elevator speech and instead focus on helping and learning about others at business events. 'Go where the people are,' Singer says, 'and see if you can help them find something or make a connection.' What goes around comes around, and those we network with will eventually be able to help us, if we approach the process with an open mind and others-centric attitude. In a fun, bite-sized way, aimed at busy professionals, Singer speaks and writes about how to build relationships for their own sake, rather than simply promoting oneself. And he lives out the practice of paying attention to others, donating a portion of his proceeds to endowments to help families pay for their children's reconstructive surgery.

Love! Laugh! Panic! Life With My Mother By Rosemary Mild

Love! Laugh! Panic! Life with My Mother by Rosemary Mild

Description: Don’t we all have mixed emotions about our mothers? That sentiment echoes loudly—and often hilariously—throughout the pages of Love! Laugh! Panic!, Rosemary Pollack Mild’s tribute to her own complicated mother, Luby Pollack. Luby was a mother like no other: extraordinarily talented, yet extraordinarily difficult to live with. She was many things: a skilled journalist, a popular book author, club woman extraordinaire—a true leader, and even an artist of sorts. But Luby Pollack often had a daunting role to play. In the delivery room during Rosemary’s birth, Luby’s psychiatrist husband ordered her not to make any noise during labor, as it was “unseemly for a doctor’s wife.” Rosemary grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. When she set out to write a book strictly about herself, she found daunting circumstances of her own (Luby went so far as to rewrite Rosemary’s ninth-grade autobiography assignment). Originally intending to publish a selection of personal essays, Rosemary discovered that Mother popped up on every page. Looming. Encouraging. Warning. Always the Protagonist, the Star, the Heroine, the Antagonist—and sometimes, from the viewpoint of a loving but ornery daughter, the Villain.

Abusing Donor Intent: The Robertson Family's Epic Lawsuit Against Princeton University

Abusing Donor Intent, Doug White

Description: It was the largest one-time amount—$35 million—anyone had ever donated to benefit a university. The Robertsons were specific about the way the money was to be used. It was intended to help Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs focus on sending its graduates into those areas of the federal government concerned with international relations. “But the university,” the son says, “was ignoring my parents’ intentions.” Furthermore, Princeton’s administrators were “harming the country.” That’s not, as you might imagine, the way Princeton saw it—or sees it today. How much control over a gift does a donor have after the gift is given? How accountable is a non-profit recipient for the use of the gift?

As people around her begin disappearing and her son is kidnapped, Caroline, in a race against time, struggling with killers hired by one of the world’s most powerful men, realizes that she must use her wit and steely resolve to save herself, her son, and possibly millions from certain death.

EGO HEROIN — Joan Crawford Stars In Your Fakebook Page Does Not Make You A F**king Movie Star

Ego Heroin

Description: A genuine movie star’s outrageous new “unauthorized fake autobiography” and pop culture parody explores why many reality “celebrities” from Hollywood, Washington, Wall Street, and Main Street have survived beyond their 15 minutes of infamy in America’s fame-obsessed culture. Major blame for today’s flimsy state of stardom is assigned to social media and reality entertainment for convincing unremarkable civilians (and some traditional stars) that an ego-glorifying Facebook account and Twitter feed are qualifying celebrity credentials that may also somehow magically insure against mortality. In the ribald new parody Ego Heroin — Joan Crawford Stars in Your Fakebook Page Does Not Make You a F**king Movie Star, seasoned marketing executive and fiction author JS Hamilton explores how and why America has developed into a celebrity-driven culture. Narrated in the unvarnished voice of Hollywood diva and notorious Mommie Dearest Joan Crawford, the story follows Joan as she storms back to Earth from "Movie Star Heaven" and launches into a tirade about the loud intersection of reality celebrity and social media. Miss Crawford reveals her unapologetic pop culture parody through a social media addict in a Florida trailer park whom Joan hypnotizes as her typist, and who is the estranged sister and in-law to a prominent Manhattan gay couple.

The Book Of Nice By Josh Chetwynd

The Book of Nice

Description: Nice is the secret ingredient to a better life. It makes us happy. It may even be what makes us civilized—when we say thank you, shake hands, send flowers, we’re doing the nice things that bring people together. 
A compulsive and chunky book for lovers of trivia, popular history, customs, and culture—and a perfect gift to say “you’re nice”—The Book of Nice is an entertaining, quirky compendium of those signs, traditions, and expressions that we so often take for granted, yet turn out to be quite fascinating. It’s about why we cover a yawn (originally to prevent evil spirits from entering our bodies, now to hide the impression that something’s boring us). About holiday traditions—it’s thanks to Guy Lombardo’s December 31 broadcast in 1929 that we now sing “Auld Lang Syne” on New Year’s Eve. About customary offerings—the wedding cake evolved out of the Roman use of wheat as a symbol of fertility (and it’s much tastier than bits of grain). And about those simple yet essential niceties—how Thomas Edison championed an obscure term, “hello” (if Alexander Graham Bell had gotten his way, we’d all be saying “ahoy”). Why not put a little nice in your day?

New Book To Enrich Your Life: Path Of The Novice Mystic: Maintaining A Beginner's Heart And Mind, By Dr. Paul Dunion

"Path of the Novice Mystic," by Dr. Paul Dunion

Description: Do we truly recognize what life is about? How do we find true meaning and enrichment? Who are we? What happens when life deals us an unexpected blow? In his insightful new book, "Path of the Novice Mystic: Maintaining a Beginner's Heart and Mind," Dr. Paul Dunion explores these questions and more as he provides a unique look into the world of secular mysticism. He skillfully blends psychology, philosophy and spirituality to guide the reader toward finding peace by accepting the world's inherent uncertainties and approaching life with elevated curiosity and enthusiasm. Dr. Dunion holds that we can respond to life's odyssey and decide who we are by either protesting the trip or accepting it. Protesting life means we define ourselves as either victims or conquerors of life -- both of which place us in an adversarial relationship to life. Whether protesters fall prey to illusions of powerlessness or power, they still live in illusion, understanding neither the journey nor themselves. “This book is intended to inspire the building of a personal philosophy capable of supporting the reader's ability to make peace with the inherent mystery of life," says Dr. Dunion.
