  • New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer

    Bill Maher first came to national attention as the host of the hit Comedy Central and ABC-TV program Politically Incorrect, where he offered a combustible mixture of irreverence and acerbic humor that helped him to garner a loyal following, as well as a reputation for being a hilarious provocateur.

    Overall

    I am a big Bill Maher fan and I'm glad that I read this book. Yet - when someone is just doing their stand up act on paper - it that a book? While I love watching him on Real Time, he doesn't pack the same punch in this format. He's still funny and smart, but his comments somehow seem out of context without hte back drop of hte show. PS. don't his writers create "New Rules" anyway? Why doens't his writing staff get a credit here?

    In this captivating memoir, Deborah Feldman takes listeners on an eye-opening journey into Orthodox Jewish culture. Raised in the suffocating world of Brooklyn’s Satmar Hasidim, Feldman was told what to read and who she was allowed to talk to. Married off at 17, she suffered from anxiety and was shamed by an inability to please her older husband. But after giving birth to a son at age 19, Feldman realized it was time to tear up her roots and make her own path in life.

    I know that a lot of people have been upset by what is written in this book, but I could not put it down! deborah speaks boldly of her experiences in the community and i can offer her nothing but praise. She uplifts and inspires! I am not jewish, but i left mu fundamentalist religious community in my early 20's. I totally related to her struggle. I could not put this book down!

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    The Psychopath Test is a fascinating journey through the minds of madness. Jon Ronson's exploration of a potential hoax being played on the world's top neurologists takes him, unexpectedly, into the heart of the madness industry. An influential psychologist who is convinced that many important CEOs and politicians are, in fact, psychopaths teaches Ronson how to spot these high-flying individuals by looking out for little telltale verbal and nonverbal clues.

    A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences. Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.

Arrington's much older husband, the actor Vance Calder, has just died, leaving her a fortune in Centurion Studios stock. Arrington has plans for the money and asks Stone to represent her in the sale of the company. But when he arrives at her home in Bel-Air to finalize the deal, things take a nasty turn.

    I was already a Jen weiner fan. She and Jen landcaster are girlfriends in my head. This book was classic JW and I loved every moment of it. I also love how her books have a ripped from the headline feel. I caught the Dan Savage reference. I remember the lady on some talk show who spoke about being a surrogate only to discover that the couple changed their mind, got divorced and dumped the baby. The story feels so real. it has heart and soul. Well done Jen. well done.

    The day Cannie Shapiro, a savvy, intelligent, plus-sized pop culture reporter, opens up a national women's magazine to find out that her ex-boyfriend has been chronicling their ex-sex life is the day her life changes forever. Good in Bed celebrates the courage of the human spirit and introduces you to a heroine you'll never forget.

    This book should be purchased along with it's sequel "Certain Girls". Good in Bed remains my favorite JW work and i've read them all. I AM Canny . THis book touched my heart!

    Sing your way to a new language, anytime, anywhere! The new enhanced edition of Rush Hour Spanish includes two audio programs, a bonus music-only version of favorite Rush Hour songs, and a free downloadable word game (see www.berlitzbooks.com for link). Original music and catchy songs help you remember everyday words, phrases, and sentences, and the exciting storyline keeps you involved. Fun to use alone or with your family!

    After I read John Grisham's "The Broker" I decided that I wanted to learn a language. This book was a great first step. It was so fun that even my kids joined in.
