Woman-to-woman advice on identifying—and dumping—bad news guys No one is immune when it comes to destructive relationships. Even smart women can be gaslighted by men who appear supportive in public but are belittling in private, after which, worse yet, they assert that you’re upset for no reason, that you’re simply imagining the verbal abuse and incremental death of your spirit. In He’s Just No Good for You, best-selling author Beth Wilson, with psychologist Dr. Maureen Hannah, zeroes in on the heart of the matter—women’s well-being and self-worth—and sets forth a clear vision of just what a healthy relationship looks like. She also instructs women of all ages on installing “early detection” warning systems in their brains. As for those women already enmeshed in a destructive relationship, this book, with its reassuring, empowering style, can assist in identifying the problem, deciding whether to leave or to stay, and then acting on that decision. Most books about bad relationships focus on compatibility or domestic violence. He’s Just No Good for You is for all women who have found themselves wondering if the “great” guy others see at their side is in fact not so great—or worse. Wilson explores the anatomy of a destructive relationship and provides clear profiles of bad news individuals. And she shows women how they can move beyond the grasp of a harmful relationship by taking a candid look at their priorities, their circumstances, and themselves. Drawing on the wisdom and insight Wilson has long utilized in her thriving private practice, and building on her previous best-selling books, along with Dr. Hannah’s professional expertise, He’s Just No Good for You offers women a new path. Women want more out of relationships—and this book shows them that they can have it.

A relationship expert and dating columnist shares her counterintuitive approach to lasting love: encouraging women to date their "non-types" After years of dating, many women fall into a relationship rut. As serial daters, they are attracted to the same type of man time and again. Clearly, something's not working. But the problem is not that he's just not that into them--the reality is, he's just not their type. Relationship expert and life coach Andrea Syrtash hears the disbelief in her clients' voices when they admit that their "Mr. Right" relationship has again gone wrong. In He's Just Not Your Type, Syrtash challenges readers to date outside their comfort zones and poses hard-hitting questions: What if the kind of man they think will make them happy never will? What would happen if they dated someone they'd never considered dating? In each chapter, Syrtash shares stories of women who have found lasting happiness with their non-types (NTs) and provides exercises designed to help readers assess their big-picture goals and core values. In doing so, she shows women how to make better choices in dating so they are more likely to find true love.

Stories like Joey Giambras' have been attempted many times in many different styles. So what's the difference? This is the truth. The Gods' honest, ghetto style, Italian-American truth. Dramatic and intimate details about his childhood, life and death experiences, and life in the world of boxing controlled by the mafia. Rising from poverty during the Great Depression, to dining with royalty and celebrities. The book is finally here to reconstruct each and every moment of a man who would eventually be denied of the very thing he trained and fought so hard to attain. This is a story teeming with challenge, love, abuse, and family. Both kinds... It has a heart warming love story, a quality about the underdog makes good and the seedy truths about the controlled history of the boxing world feared to be told before now. The Golden era of boxing from the forties, fifties, and sixties... Famous and infamous Italian Mafia members trying to kill and then saving the young Giambra, despite him not joining the Mafia or playing hardball with them to throw fights for an eventual title shot... Mobsters, such as Vito Genevese, Carlo Gambino, Frankie Carbo, and Jack Ruby were all key figures in Giambra's career. He had real friendships with major sports figures such as heavyweight champions Rocky Marciano and Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali), who was taught the "Rope-A-Dope" by the young Giambra. A middleweight champion, Sugar Ray Robinson, openly stated he would not fight Giambra for the title when he was champ! Lightweight champion Willie Pep and baseball legend Joe DiMaggio were two of Giambra's biggest fans! And being in Hollywood during the romantic era of the 60s, he acted in movies, such as The Misfits, and the television series, Mission Impossible and The Joey Bishop Show, a comedy series, and also had friendships with Ann Margaret, Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, and Joey Bishop. The original self-published book, The Uncrowned Champion, has sold over 100,000 copies since its release in 1980, despite not being marketed. A lot of material was left out of the original book due to sensitivity to subject matter, people, and many situations.(RE: mafia) This is the new book and is a tell-all. This book is a piece of American history. Told by the warrior... Joey Giambra

The Searing Portrayal Of War That Has Stunned And Galvanized Generations Of Readers An immediate bestseller upon its original publication in 1939, Dalton Trumbo’s stark, profoundly troubling masterpiece about the horrors of World War I brilliantly crystallized the uncompromising brutality of war and became the most influential protest novel of the Vietnam era.

Memoir in cartoons by the longtime cartoon editor of The New Yorker People tell Bob Mankoff that as the cartoon editor of The New Yorker he has the best job in the world. Never one to beat around the bush, he explains to us, in the opening of this singular, delightfully eccentric book, that because he is also a cartoonist at the magazine he actually has two of the best jobs in the world. With the help of myriad images and his funniest, most beloved cartoons, he traces his love of the craft all the way back to his childhood, when he started doing funny drawings at the age of eight. After meeting his mother, we follow his unlikely stints as a high-school basketball star, draft dodger, and sociology grad student. Though Mankoff abandoned the study of psychology in the seventies to become a cartoonist, he recently realized that the field he abandoned could help him better understand the field he was in, and here he takes up the psychology of cartooning, analyzing why some cartoons make us laugh and others don't. He allows us into the hallowed halls of The New Yorker to show us the soup-to-nuts process of cartoon creation, giving us a detailed look not only at his own work, but that of the other talented cartoonists who keep us laughing week after week. For desert, he reveals the secrets to winning the magazine's caption contest. Throughout How About Never--Is Never Good for You?, we see his commitment to the motto "Anything worth saying is worth saying funny."

The 21st century will be the age of the city. Already over 50% of the world population live in urban centres and over the coming decades this percentage will increase. Blending anecdote, fact and first hand encounters - from exploring the slums of Mumbai, to visiting roof-top farms in Brooklyn and attending secret dinner parties in Paris, to riding the bus in Latin America - Leo Hollis reveals that we have misunderstood how cities work for too long. Upending long-held assumptions and challenging accepted wisdom, he explores: why cities can never be rational, organised places; how we can walk in a crowd without bumping into people, and if we can design places that make people want to kiss; whether we have the right solution to the problem of the slums; how ants, slime mould and traffic jams can make us rethink congestion. And above all, the unexpected reasons why living in the city can make us fitter, richer, smarter, greener, more creative - and, perhaps, even happier. Cities Are Good for You introduces dreamers, planners, revolutionaries, writers, scientists, architects, slum-dwellers and emperors. It is shaped by the idea that cities are the greatest social experiment in human history, built for people, and by the people.

Behind Closed Doors Seth Mackey knows everything about the women his boss Victor Lazar toys with. But Lazar's latest plaything, Raine Cameron, is different. Raine is pure temptation, but Seth can't slip up: he's convinced Lazar had his half-brother killed and plans to prove it. But then he finds out that Raine may be Lazar's next victim... Raine has her own reasons to seek revenge on Lazar, and she will, despite the distracting presence of Seth Mackey. He stirs her most erotic fantasies...and inspires her bold plan. Offering her body to him, surrendering to his ruthless desire, might well push her beyond all emotional limits--and beyond fear itself. Standing in the Shadows Connor McCloud can never forget the day he was almost killed by his friend Ed Riggs. It cost Connor what he wants most--Ed's daughter Erin. He can never have her now, but her beauty still haunts him. When an old enemy resurfaces, Connor is prepared to do anything to protect Erin. Erin has been harboring secret fantasies about Connor McCloud since she met him--but that was before he sent her father to jail. Now Connor is knocking on her door, telling her she needs his protection. He's sworn to guard her with his life and his fierce protectiveness awakens long-buried feelings... Out of Control Davy McCloud has one rule: never follow blind impulse when it comes to women. But he breaks it the instant Margo Vetter shows up at the gym next door. The sexual hunger--and the instinctual protectiveness--she awakens is much too strong to resist. Broke and on the run, Margot has no one to turn to. But the closer Davy gets, the more Margot discovers that holding back from this enigmatic, powerful man is impossible. In every way... Edge of Midnight On the very day an arsonist burns down Liv Endicott's bookstore, she finds fate has another shock in store for her. Amid the smoke, rubble, and tears, Sean McCloud appears, calling her name. He's still the man she kept on wanting. But wanting is not the same as trusting, and she doesn't dare let him get too close. But a ruthless killer is gunning for Liv, and she'll die unless they join forces to unearth a chilling truth--and come together in a blaze of searing passion... Extreme Danger Nobody's home when Becca Cantrell takes a midnight skinnydip--and gets hauled out by a guy with burning eyes. The man is the embodiment of her most intense fantasies. And she's up for risky thrills... Nick Ward can't tell her that he's spying on a vicious Russian crime boss.

Anyway he looks at it, she's trouble: beautiful, bare, dripping-wet trouble... Ultimate Weapon Covert operations are what Val Janos is all about. The man is mysterious and sinister, and lethally hot. Only Tamara can understand the strange intensity that drives him to win at all costs--and only she can match it.

But Daddy Novak knows about Imre, and his head is on the block if Val doesn't deliver Tam up to Novak's tender mercies...
