In "Losing It, " William Ian Miller brings his inimitable wit and learning to the subject of growing old: "too old to matter, of either rightly losing your confidence or wrongly maintaining it, culpably refusing to face the fact that you are losing it." The "it" in Miller's "losing it" refers mainly to mental faculties--memory, processing speed, sensory acuity, the capacity to focus. But it includes other evidence as well--sags and flaccidities, aches and pains, failing joints and organs. What are we to make of these tell-tale signs? Does growing old gracefully mean more than simply refusing unseemly cosmetic surgeries? How do we face decline and the final drawing of the blinds? Will we know if and when we have lingered too long? Drawing on a lifetime of deep study and anxious observation, Miller enlists the wisdom of the ancients to confront these vexed questions head on. Debunking the glossy new image of old age that has accompanied the graying of the Baby Boomers, he conjures a lost world of aging rituals--complaints, taking to bed, resentments of one's heirs, schemes for taking it with you or settling up accounts and scores--to remind us of the ongoing dilemmas of old age. Darkly intelligent and sublimely written, this exhilarating and eccentric book will raise the spirits of readers, young and old.

Things are finally looking up for 18-year-old Josie Browning. Her hot new boyfriend James can't keep his hands off her, she's moved into a share house in the city and - fresh from her roller-coaster ride at the now defunct Sash magazine - she's scored a coveted job as indi website's junior writer. Life wasn't meant to go that smoothly, so when indi's features editor Sia announces she's pregnant and needs time off, the pressure is on for Josie to prove to her editor Liani that she's got what it takes to be a real journalist. Loved-up Josie is also on a mission to lose her virginity to James (if they can get past second base without laughing, arguing, being interrupted or freaking out!). And if that's not enough, Josie's battling with bong-smoking room-mates, mag-girl frenemies and confusing feelings for jaded travel writer, Alex. High on the fabulous perks from her new job at indi, Josie's life seems pretty close to perfect - even though she still hasn't mastered her hair straightener. But when Josie is suspected of stealing from one of magazines' rising queen bees at a luxurious media junket, she is thrown into a mystery of lies, theft and deceit that threatens to ruin her reputation, love life and career forever. Does Josie have what it takes to be a real journalist? Will she be able to prove her innocence without losing her job at indi (and her mind)? Or will the bitchy magazine girls win once and for all? And what will Josie do when Alex comes to her rescue when no-one else does, not even James...' Yep. 18 just got a whole lot more complicated. Ages: 12+

Why do otherwise brilliant and successful leaders fail – and often do so dramatically? How can you prevent your own career “train wreck” by learning from their experiences? This book distills the core causes of executive failure, demonstrates how to identify them in your own behavior – and helps you to eliminate or avoid them. Bill Lane, Jack Welch’s long-time colleague draws on his own experience as a GE insider as well as from extensive interviews with former GE executives now running their own companies, including Dave Calhoun (CEO, Nielsen); Jim McNerney (CEO, Boeing); Lloyd Trotter (retired Vice-Chairman of GE), Frank Doyle (ex-Executive VP at GE), Kip Condron (ex-CEO, Americas, AXA Equitable); Andrew McMahon (President, AXA Equitable), and many others. Together with these elite executives, Lane demonstrates how to avoid arrogance, recognize when you must micromanage, learn how to communicate far more effectively, maintain a relentless focus on what matters most, and avoid the temptations to sacrifice your #1 leadership asset: your integrity. Along the way, he offers hard-hitting insights on everything from choosing your battles to cultivating the “right” forms of paranoia. Losing It will be an indispensable resource for everyone aspiring to become a more effective leader, including managers at all levels, and all MBA candidates and executive education students.

She’s vibrant and infuriating, exciting and reckless, mysterious and familiar - and she's falling into the same patterns he suffered years ago. Jackson vows to help her, which is more difficult than he thought, especially because the more he knows her, the more he wants her...

Garrick Taylor and Bliss Edwards managed to find their happily-ever-after despite a rather . . . ahem . . . complicated start. By comparison, meeting the parents should be an absolute breeze, right? But from the moment the pair lands in London, new snags just keep cropping up: a disapproving mother-in-law-to-be, more than one (mostly) minor mishap, and the realization that perhaps they aren't quite as ready for their future as they thought. As it turns out, the only thing harder than finding love is keeping it.
