Low Pressure sandra BroWn

New York Times bestselling author SANDRA BROWN delivers a new heart-pounding thriller. ●

Bellamy Lyston Price was only 12 years old when her older sister Susan was killed on a stormy Memorial Day. Bellamy’s fear of storms is a legacy of the tornado that destroyed the crime scene as well as her memory of one vital fact that still eludes her.... now, 18 years later, Bellamy has written a novel based on Susan’s murder. It’s her first book, and it’s an instant sensation. But because the novel is based on the most traumatic event of her life, she’s published it under a pseudonym to protect herself and her family. But when a sleazy reporter for a tabloid newspaper discovers that the book is based on a real crime, Bellamy’s identity—and dark family secrets—are exposed. Suddenly, she finds herself embroiled in a personal conflict and at the mercy of her sister’s killer, who, for almost two decades, has gotten away with murder…and will stop at nothing to keep it that way.

Sandra Brown’s previous hardcover, Lethal (GCP, 9/11), was an instant New York Times bestseller, debuting at #2 on the list. It was praised in USA TODAY, Associated Press, Booklist, and won starred reviews from both Publishers Weekly and Library Journal. It has sold more than 283,000 copies to date. The trade paperback edition was published in 1/12, with more than 140,000 copies in print. There are over 80 million copies of Sandra Brown’s books in print worldwide and her work has been translated into 34 languages. In 2008, Brown was named Thriller Master by the International Thriller Writer’s Association, the organization’s top honor. ANDReW eCCLeS

Praise for lethal:

“Hair-raising….A perfect mix of thriller —USA TODAY and romantic suspense.”

SAnDRA BROWn lives in Texas.

“Sandra Brown delivers a Hitchcockian thriller that reads like a bullet....no one is better in the genre than Brown, and she has written her best book to date.” —Associated Press

8 Habits of Love

Robert Ludlum’s The Janus Reprisal

Open Your Heart, Open Your Mind

Jamie Freveletti

TM

Ed Bacon

A spiritual guidebook to living life through love and connection, not fear and isolation, by a respected pastor and a frequent guest on Oprah’s Soul Series.

The much anticipated new installment in Robert Ludlum’s bestselling Covert-One series.

Reverend Bacon believes that every person can live a full and creative life if they can learn to move through troubling emotions such as fear, anger, and sadness to find the core of love within themselves.  Readers will learn how insecurity can keep us from connecting with others and finding our own peace, joy, and creative power.  8 HABITS OF LOVE will show, through relatable stories, how to create a full, meaningful life by developing simple habits—stillness, truth, forgiveness, compassion, play, candor, and community—and by asking such important questions as: How do I know I’m living the life I should be? How do I forgive those who have hurt me? How do I talk candidly with difficult people? How do I best help others when they need it? And how do I let go of the past and move forward?  ●●

For the past 15 years Ed Bacon has served as Rector of All Saints, an Episcopal church in Pasadena, California, with over 4,000 congregants, including celebrities like Amy Brenneman, Brad Whitford, and Tony Shalhoub. All Saints regularly receives visitors as varied as Madonna, Cornel West, and Arianna Huffington. He has been a guest and guest host on Oprah’s Soul Series on Oprah and Friends Radio, discussing 21st century spirituality, and has been a guest panelist in the “Spirituality 101” segment of The Oprah Winfrey Show’s Living Your Best Life series. The Oprah Winfrey Network has recently featured Bacon on “Super Soul Sunday.” Bacon has been honored several times for his peace and interfaith work, including the Religious Freedom Award from the ACLU of Southern California in 2006, and the Peace & Compassion Award given to him in 2005 by the Islamic Center of Southern California. A Purpose Driven Life (Zondervan, 2004) for a more liberal audience, 8 HABITS OF LOVE will appeal to the same readership that embraced Elizabeth Lesser’s Broken Open (Villard Books, 2005) and Francis Chan’s bestselling Crazy Love (David C. Cook, 2008), which sold more than 581,000 copies.

While attending a W.H.O. conference on infectious diseases in The Hague, Jon Smith wakes up in his hotel room to find a man aiming a gun at him. After neutralizing the shooter, Smith tries to escape a second group of terrorists in the process of attacking the hotel.  But the hotel is not the only target under attack in The Hague. Bombs are going off at the train station, the airport, and at the headquarters of the International Court of Justice, where a Pakistani warlord, Oman Dattar, is held while he’s being tried for crimes against humanity. In the resulting chaos, Dattar escapes. Dattar has a special hatred for the United States and England, who cooperated in his arrest and trial. He’s learned of a new strain of bioelectric bacteria being carried to the W.H.O. conference in preparation for an international consortium study. Dattar arranges for his men to steal the bacteria during his initial attack. But this is just part of a larger plot Dattar has concocted to bring down the West once and for all—and only one team can stop him….

The truth is, Joe Moglia had always dreamed of coaching football, not of being a corporate titan. During his first years out of college and into his 20s, he coached high school and college football with a real passion. But when he reached his mid-30s, Joe was faced with a most difficult economic dilemma; in effect, he had to choose between his lifelong dream of coaching or of financially supporting his wife and four young kids. With a heavy heart, Joe abruptly quit coaching and went to Wall Street to try and find a decent paying job in finance. Even though he had no MBA or formal training in business, Moglia—through sheer grit and determination— worked his way up to become the CEO of TD Ameritrade. But he never lost his passion for the gridiron. In 2008, at the pinnacle of his career, Moglia did the unthinkable: He left his high-paying corporate position to become an unpaid, voluntary coach to the University of Nebraska football team. In 2010 he joined the United Football League and was named the head coach of the Omaha Nighthawks in his quest to someday become a head football college coach. And in the fall of 2011, Joe was named as the head football coach at Coastal Carolina University. 4th AND GOAL is Joe Moglia’s remarkable story—it’s truly about a dream deferred, but never forgotten. ●●

●●

●●

Joe Moglia’s amazing story has already piqued media interest from ESPN, CNBC, Fox Sports, NFL Films, and many more business and sports media outlets. Coach Moglia will not participate in any fulllength interviews until pub time, allowing 4th AND GOAL to break his inspiring story. It is anticipated that Forbes magazine will secure first serial rights. Monte Burke is a staff writer at Forbes and has also written for the New York Times, Outside, Men’s Journal, and Town & Country, among other publications. Both Moglia and Burke are expected to join the Hachette Speakers Bureau. Moglia’s life story immediately calls to mind inspiring sports figures Michael Oher and Jim Morris and their unbelievable stories, as told in The Blind Side (Norton, 2006) and The Oldest Rookie (LB, 4/01), respectively.

So Good They Can’t Ignore You

Humblebrag

Why Skills Trump Passion in the Quest for Work You Love

The Art of False Modesty

Cal Newport

Harris Wittels

Offering an eye-opening and contrarian perspective on careers, Georgetown University professor Cal Newport debunks the long-held notion that “following your passion” is actually good advice.

From Emmy-Award-nominated comedian/writer (Parks and Recreation, Eastbound & Down) Harris Wittels comes a hysterical breakdown of boasts, brags, and self-adulation disguised as humble comments and complaints—based on his popular @humblebrag Twitter feed.

In his now famous Stanford University commencement speech, former Apple CEO Steve Jobs urged idealistic graduates to “chase your dreams.” Cal Newport takes issue with that, claiming it’s not only Pollyannaish, but that Jobs never really followed his own advice. Instead, Newport argues that it’s a person’s talent and skill—not necessarily their passion—that will ultimately determine their career path. Comedian Steve Martin was once asked why he was successful in his career. He replied, “Be so good they can’t ignore you.” That, according to Newport, is the essence to a satisfying career: Skill and ability trump passion. He contends that trying to find what drives us—instead of focusing on those areas in which we naturally excel—is ultimately harmful and frustrating to job seekers. By presenting compelling scientific as well as contemporary case studies, Newport shows that the key to career success begins with discovering what one does well, building upon that “career capital,” and putting every effort in that direction. ●●

Something immediately annoyed Harris Wittels about Twitter. All of a sudden it was acceptable to brag, so long as those brags were ever-so-thinly disguised as transparent humility, such as: “Just filed my taxes. Biggie was right, mo money mo problems.” “I hate when I go into a store to get something to eat and the male staff are too busy hitting on me to get my order right :( so annoying!” Taking action by naming this phenomenon and creating the Twitter account called Humblebrag—dedicated solely to retweeting the humblebrags of others—Wittels’s new word took the Internet by storm. Harris also shows readers what humblebrags might look like from some of history’s most notable names, as well as devoting an entire chapter to a man who just might be the greatest humblebraggart of them all. ●●

Unlike conventional career guides, such as What Color is Your Parachute? (Ten Speed Press, reissue, 2011), SO GOOD THEY CAN’T IGNORE YOU argues that in order to be able to see one’s long-range dreams come true, one first has to identify one’s skills and abilities. Whether a student, a new job seeker, or a career changer, this is the perfect book for anyone who is actively planning the next step in their life. Cal Newport is the author of three books of unconventional advice for students, which have sold more than 100,000 copies combined: How to Be a High School Superstar (Broadway Books, 2010), How to Become a Straight-A Student (Broadway Books, 2006), and How to Win at College (Broadway Books, 2005), which was a New York Public Library Books for the Teen Age winner. An assistant professor at Georgetown University, his Study Hacks blog (calnewport.com/ blog) attracts more than 300,000 monthly visits.

It’s high time we restored America to the greatness it never lost!

Book store nation, in the history of mankind there has never been a greater country than America. You could say we’re the #1 nation at being the best at greatness. But as perfect as America is in every single way, America is broken! And we can’t exchange it because we’re 236 years past the 30-day return window. Look around—we don’t make anything anymore, we’ve mortgaged our future to China, and the Apologist-in-Chief goes on world tours just to bow before foreign leaders. Worse, the L.A. Four Seasons Hotel doesn’t even have a dedicated phone button for the Spa. You have to dial an extension! Where did we lose our way?!

The Panther nelson demille

Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana’a, Yemen—one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he’s wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders—and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost. As latecomers to a treacherous game, John and kate don’t know the rules, the players, or the score. What they do know is that there is more to their assignment than meets the eye—and that the hunters are about to become the hunted.

THE PANTHER features one of Nelson DeMille’s most popular characters, Det. John Corey, who was previously featured in the author’s New York Times bestsellers The Lion (GCP, 6/10), Wild Fire (GCP, 11/06), Night Fall (GCP, 11/04), The Lion’s Game (GCP 1/00), and Plum Island (GCP, 5/97). These novels have more than six million copies in print combined and have received widespread critical acclaim. The author’s most recent novel, The Lion (GCP, 978-0-446-58083-0, 6/10), was an instant New York Times bestseller. It debuted as tied for #1, and sold more than 330,000 copies. The trade paperback edition (GCP, 6/11) was also a New York Times bestseller and has more than 102,000 copies in print. SANDY DemiLLe

Does This Church Make Me Look Fat? A Mennonite Finds Faith, Meets Mr. Right, and Solves Her Lady Problems rHoda JanZen

What does it mean to give church a try when you haven’t really tried since you were twelve? At the end of her bestselling memoir Mennonite in a Little Black Dress, Rhoda Janzen had reconnected with her family and her roots, though her future felt uncertain. But when she starts dating a churchgoer, this skeptic begins a surprising journey to faith and love. Janzen doesn’t slide back into the dignified simplicity of the Mennonite church. Instead, she finds herself hanging with the Pentecostals, who really know how to get down with sparkler pom-poms. Amid the hand waving and hallelujahs, Janzen finds a faith richly practical for life—just in time for some impressive lady problems, an unexpected romance, and a quirky new family. Praise for rhoda Janzen:

SheLLeY LALONDe

Rhoda Janzen, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Mennonite in a Little Black Dress, is back with a hilarious and heartfelt memoir about her return to faith and love.

EXCERPT:

Mitch’s sixteen-year-old son Leroy had already confided that for as long as he could remember, his buddies had been terrified of his dad, around whom there had sprung up a stern terminator legend. First there was Mitch’s size. Leroy’s dad caricatured the impossible male physique— chest like a scenic vista, canon arms, a waist that disappeared into his jeans like a genie into a bottle. He kept clanking steel gym equipment in his living room. Then there was the curious catlike walk. He moved with incredible lightness, as if he expected someone to attack him from behind. Anyone who’s studied martial arts recognizes that walk. Put him in a suit, he looks like secret service. When you put other men in suits, they look like accountants or limo drivers. Leroy told me that his father’s nickname was The Boxer. I frowned. “I’d hate to be the box.” “Yeah,” Leroy returned. “Stealth thinks my dad looks like a stone-cold Steve Austin.” “Stealth?” I asked. “Your friend’s name is Stealth?” “Yeah,” said Leroy. “He’s not my friend, though. He’s my cousin.” “Are you trying to tell me that you have an aunt who named her child Stealth?” Leroy nodded. “After the bomber.” They seemed a strange family to me.

PROMOTIOn

Selling out stadiums, topping album sales charts, and selling millions of albums have brought Lil Wayne, one of hip-hop’s biggest acts, incredible highs. But these huge successes were accompanied by dark lows, resulting in a gun charge that landed him in Rikers Island Penitentiary for a year (of which he served 8 months). While there, he kept remarkably detailed journals of his thoughts, his feelings, the strange and colorful people he met, his plans, his family, his children, his past, present, and future. GONE TILL NOVEMBER is a highly compelling internal monologue that is as relatable as it is unique to Wayne—an amazing narrative that will be a must-have for his legions of fans.

The author’s work has received praise from O, The Oprah Magazine, People, Marie Claire, Elle, New York magazine, and the Chicago Tribune, among other publications.

For more than 30 years, Edie and Richard Middlestein shared a solid family life together in the suburbs of Chicago: two children, a nice house in the Chicago suburbs, successful careers, close friends. But now, things are splintering apart, for one reason, it seems: Edie’s enormous girth. She’s obsessed with food—thinking about it, eating it, and if she doesn’t stop, she won’t have much longer to live. When Richard abandons his wife, it is up to the next generation to take control. Robin, their schoolteacher daughter, is determined that her father pay for leaving her mother. Benny, an easy-going, pot-smoking family man, just wants to smooth things over. And Rachelle, a whippet-thin perfectionist, is intent on saving her mother-in-law’s life. Through it all, they wonder: do Edie’s devastating choices rest on her shoulders alone, or are they at fault, too? With pitch-perfect prose and sly humor, THE MIDDLESTEINS explores the hopes and heartbreaks of new and old love, the yearnings of Midwestern America, and our devastating, fascinating preoccupation with food.

David Baldacci returns with the second novel in his new blockbuster series! ●

John Puller is called out on another case—and this time, it’s close to home. His Aunt Betsy has been found dead in her Florida apartment, drowned in her backyard pool. The local police have ruled the death an accident, but Puller isn’t so sure. Before she died, Betsy mailed a letter to Puller’s father, telling him she was afraid…but wouldn’t say what, exactly, she was frightened of. Puller decides to head down south to personally investigate his aunt’s death—and what he finds there convinces him without a doubt that this was no accident. And when he learns the real reason for his aunt’s death, his discoveries may impact the whole eastern seaboard.

It’s Your Ship (Revised Edition)

Looking for Yesterday

Management Techniques from the Best Damn Ship in the Navy

Marcia Muller

Captain D. Michael Abrashoff, USS Benfold

The classic, bestselling guide to revolutionary leadership and management skills is reissued in a revised 10th anniversary edition.

In New York Times bestselling author Marcia Muller’s explosive new novel, Sharon McCone investigates an unsolved murder—and someone is willing to add to the body count to keep from being found.

When Captain D. Michael Abrashoff took over the USS Benfold, the high-tech fighting ship was anything but ready. Throwing centuries of naval tradition overboard, he applied modern-day management techniques with his crew. Within months, the Benfold was the top performing ship in the American fleet—from achieving amazing cost savings to winning the highest gunnery score in the Pacific Fleet. Now, Abrashoff shares his secrets of successful management in this updated and revised edition, including: • See your ship through the eyes of your crew—by soliciting sailors’ suggestions, Abrashoff drastically reduced tedious chores that provided little additional value. • Communicate, communicate, communicate—the more Abrashoff communicated the ship’s plans, the better the crew’s performance. They even nicknamed the Captain “Megaphone Mike.” •C  reate discipline by focusing on purpose—discipline skyrocketed when Abrashoff’s crew believed that what they were doing was important. IT’S YOUR SHIP can help anyone change the course of their ship, no matter where their business battles are fought. ●●

The DASH Diet Weight Loss Solution 2 Weeks to Drop Pounds, Boost Metabolism and Get Healthy

Margaret Maron

Marla Heller, MS, RD

New York Times bestselling and multiple award-winning author Margaret Maron returns with a new mystery featuring her critically acclaimed sleuth Judge Deborah Knott.

On the heels of the New York Times bestselling DASH Diet Action Plan comes a program specifically formulated for quick—and lasting—weight loss.

Judge Deborah Knott and Sheriff’s Deputy Dwight Bryant are back home in Colleton County with all their family and courthouse regulars. But there are a few new faces as well. Lt. Sigrid Herald and her mother, Anne, a well-known photographer, are down from New York to visit Anne’s ailing mother, Mrs. Lattimore. When the group gathers for dinner at Mrs. Lattimore’s Victorian home, they meet the enigmatic Martin Crawford, an ornithologist who claims to be researching a new book on Southern vultures. More importantly, he’s Mrs. Lattimore’s long-lost nephew, and Sigrid and Anne’s English cousin. With her health in decline, Mrs. Lattimore wants to make amends with her family—something Deborah can understand as she too is working to strengthen her relationship with her stepson, Cal. But for all his mysterious charm, Anne can’t shake the feeling that there is something familiar about Martin...something he doesn’t want Anne or anyone else to discover. When a murderer strikes, Deborah, Dwight, and Sigrid will once again work together to solve the crime and uncover long-buried Lattimore family secrets.

Two Graves From bestselling thriller authors PRESTON AND CHILD comes the highly anticipated conclusion to Special Agent Pendergast’s investigation into the mysterious death of his wife Helen.

After his wife, Helen, is brazenly abducted before his eyes, Special Agent Pendergast furiously pursues the kidnappers, chasing them across the country and into Mexico. But then, things go terribly, tragically wrong; the kidnappers escape; and a shattered Pendergast retreats to his new York apartment and shuts out the world. But when a string of bizarre murders erupts across several Manhattan hotels— perpetrated by a boy who seems to have an almost psychic ability to elude capture— nYPD Lieutenant D’Agosta asks his friend Pendergast for help. Reluctant at first, Pendergast soon discovers that the killings are a message from his wife’s kidnappers. But why a message? And what does it mean? When the kidnappers strike again at those closest to Pendergast, the FBI agent, filled anew with vengeful fury, sets out to track down and destroy those responsible. His journey takes him deep into the trackless forests of South America, where he ultimately finds himself face to face with an old evil that—rather than having been eradicated—is stirring anew…and with potentially world-altering consequences. Confucius once said: “Before you embark on a journey of revenge, first dig two graves.” Pendergast is about to learn the hard way just how true those words still ring.

EXCERPT: I was like an animal, clambering through the darkness. I stole through the narrow corridor near the kitchens, passing by the doors of servants, still sunk deeply into their warm straw mattresses. In an hour, the first light of morning would wake them and, with so many pairs of eyes on guard, my flight would have been impossible. You must understand that, by then, they hated me. They would have set upon me like a pack of slavering dogs….As I came round the final bend in the road, the buck on the inn’s signboard roused my tears. My mind swirled with memories and confusion. I wept for myself, for the innocent girl whom I would

American Turnaround

The Perfect Marriage

Reinventing GM and the Way We Do Business in the USA

Kimberla Lawson Roby

Ed Whitacre with Leslie Cauley

Ed Whitacre, the CEO tasked with rescuing General Motors during its darkest hours during the 2008-2009 recession, reveals how he turned the company around—and shares his management vision for the future of American business.

A shocking secret threatens the perfect family in the new novella from New York Times bestseller Kimberla Lawson Roby, author of the acclaimed Reverend Curtis Black series.

A down-to-earth, patriotic, no-nonsense Texan with a distinctive twang in his voice, Ed Whitacre is that rare CEO with great charisma and extraordinary management instincts. Before being pulled out of retirement to run General Motors by President Obama, Ed Whitacre had spent his entire corporate career in the telecom business, where he ultimately ended up running AT&T. AMERICAN TURNAROUND is Whitacre’s business memoir of his time as a top corporate executive, complete with his insights into effective management— demonstrated by his hands-on approach to turning GM into a profitable enterprise once again. GM’s rebound under Whitacre is considered by most to be nothing short of miraculous, with the company repaying its government bailout in record time. Whitacre’s “roll up your sleeves and let’s get to work” spirit has won the admiration and respect of executives and employees throughout the business world. AMERICAN TURNAROUND is a true clarion call to return to “good ol’ American know-how.” ●●

Once soul mates, this husband and wife are quickly losing the immense love they once felt for each other. With her parents spiraling out of control, their daughter, Mackenzie, makes an unexpected move to take matters into her own hands. But while one of them does enter rehab, the other is unable to end the addiction. Is this that person’s ultimate fate, or is there still hope and a final chance to save the Shaw family?

The Plan

The Backyard Parables

Lose Weight Fast and Forever by Eating the Right Foods for Your Body

A Meditation on Gardening

Lyn-Genet Recitas

Margaret Roach

The groundbreaking diet plan that helps identify and eliminate the surprising “healthy” foods that are supposed to help weight loss but actually do the opposite.

Margaret Roach has been harvesting 30 years of backyard parables—deceptively simple, instructive stories from a life spent digging ever deeper—and has distilled them in this memoir with a side order of how-to.

Oatmeal, salmon, Greek yogurt. Think these foods help you lose weight? Think again! Cutting-edge nutrition expert LynGenet Recitas reveals the surprising truth behind what actually makes people fat. Cookies aren’t the problem—the supposed “healthy” foods are. Foods like turkey, eggs, cauliflower, beans, and tomatoes may be healthy in a vacuum, but when combined with an individuals’ chemistry they can cause a toxic reaction that triggers weight gain, premature aging, and a host of health problems including constipation, migraines, joint pain, depression, and eczema. THE PLAN gives readers a groundbreaking 20-day program designed to help them unlock the mystery behind what works for their individual body. They will identify their hidden trigger foods and build a personalized healthy-foods list that promotes rapid weight loss. In addition to losing half a pound a day while enjoying generous amounts of foods they love, readers will feel better, look better, and be empowered with the knowledge of what truly works best for their bodies. ●●

Recitas’ holistic nutrition practice became so popular she was booking appointments a year in advance.

“Once upon a time, a faithless 25-year-old got down on her knees and fashioned her first garden. It was a sorry thing, but also a matter of great pride, this perennial checkerboard imprinted on a sloping bit of ground outside her family’s kitchen door...” Margaret Roach has returned to the garden—where her readers want her!—insisting as ever that we must garden with both our head and heart, or as she expresses it, with “horticultural how-to and woo-woo.” In The Backyard Parables, Roach explores the ways that gardening saved her life and meditates on the spirituality of nature, reminding her readers and herself to keep on digging.

Total Frat Move

Magical Journey

Townes prescott iii

An Apprenticeship in Contentment Katrina Kenison

This is the book that would happen if The Rum Diaries or I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell were set in an out-of-control fraternity house—consider it the next (d)evolution in college debauchery.

An inspiring, beautiful book for the massive group of women whose children have grown up, but who themselves don’t want to stop growing.

Put simply, it is time for a national update on college fraternity life. Greek life today makes Animal House (now more than three decades old) look like a Pixar movie. The Total Frat Move website and Twitter feed were created by three Texas State grads to fill this vacuum for “fraternity humor” and both went viral the minute they hit the web and have not stopped growing since. This book of completely new, narrative material will give everyone a chance to experience the glory that is college life through the eyes of Townes Prescott III, the fictional epitome of an entitled, rich, hard-partying frat brother. Prescott will guide readers through all of the “nuances” of 21st century frat life, including such impressionable moments as Rush, Bid Night, Hazing, Tailgating, Road Trips, and, of course, Parents’ and Alumni Weekend.

MAGICAL JOURNEY is a book of reflections by Katrina Kenison about the reality of a new life without children at home. She muses: “Just as our children are coming of age as young adults, we women are undergoing our own coming-ofage rites and passages. We may be eager for change or have it thrust upon us. Either way, though, we find ourselves put to the test.” More an account of a spiritual journey than a physical one, this transformation begins and ends with a home, a life, a marriage. But in its own way, this metamorphosis is as demanding as any trek or pilgrimage to distant lands. MAGICAL JOURNEY explores the belief that even as old identities are outgrown, new ones begin to beckon, inspiring readers to summon enough courage to heed the call.

TotalFratMove.com, the website that gave birth to this book, received more than one hundred million hits in less than a year, and the @TotalFratMove Twitter feed has over 305,000 followers. The demand for college humor that packs a punch can be seen in the New York Times bestselling success of authors such as Tucker Max and Neil Strauss, as well as in the popularity of The Bro Code (written by the fictional narrator “Barney Stinson,” Neil Patrick Harris’s testosterone-fueled character on How I Met Your Mother), which was also a New York Times bestseller. There has been interest in developing Total Frat Move into a television series or major motion picture.

Robert Ludlum’s The Janson Option TM

Paul garrison

The heart-pounding new novel in Robert Ludlum’s bestselling Paul Janson series.

Reformed from his days of covert-operations, Paul Janson has set a new mission for himself. Working in partnership with champion sharpshooter Jessica kincaid, he rehabilitates disenchanted agents and helps them create new lives outside of the violent intelligence sector. Janson also takes on independent assignments—for a fee, he’ll use his skills to resolve international crises. But only those actions that he believes contribute to the greater good of all. When oil executive kingsman Helms begs Janson to rescue his wife, Allegra, from Somali pirates, Janson and kincaid seize the opportunity. At last they can derail American Synergy Corporation’s scheme to subvert sovereign nations into wholly owned subsidiaries. But the pirates are the least lethal threat in the violent chaos of oil-rich East Africa, and when Janson and kincaid stumble into a bewildering storm of plots and counterplots, they begin to fear that the only way to escape would be to abandon the innocent Allegra.

The first installment in GCP’s new Janson series, The Janson Command (978-0-446-56450-2), was published in 2/12. The book that introduced Paul Janson, The Janson Directive (St. Martin’s Press, 10/02), hit the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists, and has more than 1.5 million copies in print. The most recent Jason Bourne novel, The Bourne Dominion (GCP, 978-0-446-56444-1, 7/11), was a New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and USA TODAY bestseller, and has sold almost 100,000 hardcover copies to date. ChRiSTOPheR W. BROWN

Fuse

Power Foods for the Brain

Julianna Baggott

An Effective 3-Step Plan to Protect Your Mind and Strengthen Your Memory Neal D. Barnard, MD

Bestselling author Julianna Baggott’s thrilling new post-apocalyptic trilogy continues with the sequel to Pure.

New York Times bestselling author Dr. Neal Barnard presents a surprising new book on the power of foods to protect and enhance the brain.

After a young Wretch is abducted by the Dome and “cleansed” of her fusings and imperfections, she is only able to repeat the Dome’s latest message: “We want our son returned. This girl is proof that we can save you all. If you ignore our plea, we will kill our hostages one at a time.” Willux will go to any lengths to get his son Partridge back, including murder. Partridge sacrifices himself and returns, in the hope of taking over the Dome from within, only to uncover more of his father’s chilling, dark secrets. Outside the Dome, Pressia, Bradwell, and El Capitan are decoding the secrets from the past—tucked away in one of the Black Boxes—to uncover the truth that might set the wretches free of their fusings forever. Those fighting Willux will be pushed over boundaries, both land and sea, heart and mind, in their quest—further than they ever imagined. ●●

This book pays homage to that iconic status and provides families with dishes to satisfy the 21st-century palate and conscience.

It Takes Balls

The Billionaire’s Apprentice

Single Moms, Strip Clubs, and Other Confessions from an Unprepared Dad

The Rise of the Indian-American Elite and the Fall of the Galleon Hedge Fund

Josh Wolf

Anita Raghavan

Comedian Josh Wolf—one of the stars and writers of Chelsea Lately and After Lately—delivers a hilarious collection of essays about what life is like in the fast lane when you’re driving a minivan.

In the vein of The Powers That Be comes a page-turning account of the inner workings of the U.S.’s Indian-American power elite—and the scandal that brought down one of the world’s largest hedge funds.

Struggling to make it as a stand-up comic didn’t go hand in hand with being a sometimes single father to three children, but Josh Wolf always gave it his best. Here he shares stories about starting a home business making peanut butter sandwiches (food safety inspection be damned) and sitting his daughter in a wheelchair to avoid long lines at Disney. Plus he reveals the secret to limitless hook-ups (it’s single moms) and how he found out that he and his kids’ school principal go to the same strip club. Always funny, profane, and strikingly honest, Josh gives us a no-holds-barred account of fatherhood and manhood...and the entertaining results when these two worlds collide. ●●

Just as WASPs, Irish-Catholics, and Our Crowd Jews once made the ascent from immigrants to powerbrokers, it is now the Indian-Americans’ turn. Citigroup, PepsiCo, and MasterCard are just a handful of the Fortune 500 companies led by a group known as the “Twice Blessed.” Yet little is known about how these Indian émigrés (and children of émigrés) rose through the ranks. Until now. The collapse of the Galleon Group from criminal charges of insider trading was a sensational prosecution that pitted the government’s Sanjay Wadhwa and Preet Bharara, themselves sons of Indian immigrants, against the best and brightest of the South Asian business community. At the center of the case was the self-described King of Kings, Galleon’s founder Raj Rajaratnam, a Sri Lankan-born, Whartoneducated billionaire. But the most shocking allegation was that the eminence grise of Indian business, Rajat Gupta, was Rajaratnam’s secret accomplice. If not for Gupta’s hardfought rise to head up McKinsey & Co., men like Rajaratnam would never have made it to the top of America’s power class. Author Anita Raghavan uncovers the secrets of this subculture in an incredible tale of triumph, temptation, and tragedy.

A stand-up comedian for over a decade, Josh Wolf has a high energy style of storytelling that made him an instant favorite at such Los Angeles comedy clubs as The Impov, The Laugh Factory, and The World Famous Comedy Store. He appeared on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and was on the season finale as one of the Last Comics Downloaded. He has also appeared on All of Us, My Name is Earl, and Raising Hope, and is currently a regular on Chelsea Lately and After Lately. Josh Wolf was a contributor to the # 1 New York Times bestseller, Lies that Chelsea Handler Told Me (GCP, 978-0-446-58471-5, 5/11), which has sold nearly 320,000 hardcover copies to date. Wolf tours with Chelsea Handler and Larry the Cable Guy, and is also the host of The College Experiment, a comedic weekly online college football show for Fox Sports.

Public Apology

Death of Yesterday

In Which a Man Grapples With a Lifetime of Regret, One Incident at a Time

M.C. Beaton

Dave Bry

A collection of hilarious and moving personal essays—in the tradition of Sloane Crosley and David Sedaris—that comes in the form of very public apologies to those Dave Bry has wronged.

A dead witness. A forgotten crime. Hamish Macbeth never had it so hard in the newest mystery from bestselling author M.C. Beaton.

Dave Bry is sorry. Very sorry. He’s sorry to Wendy Metzger for singing the last verse of Stairway to Heaven into her ear while they slow danced in junior high school. He’s sorry to Pam and David MacNeill for letting their children watch The Amityville Horror when he babysat them. And he’s sorry—especially, truly—that he didn’t hear his cancer-ridden father call out for help one fateful afternoon. Things are different now. Dave’s become a dad, too, and he’s discovered a new compassion for the complicated man who raised him. And maybe if his 17-year-old self could meet his current self, he’d think twice before throwing beer cans on Jon Bon Jovi’s lawn. Dave’s apologies are at turns hysterically funny and profoundly moving, ultimately adding up to a deeply human, poignant, and likable portrait of a man trying to come to grips with his past. ●●

When a local woman tells Sergeant Hamish Macbeth that she doesn’t remember what happened the previous evening, he doesn’t begin to worry.  She had been out drinking, after all, and he’d prefer not to be bothered with such an arrogant and annoying woman.  But when her body is discovered, Hamish is forced to investigate a crime that the only known witness—now dead—had forgotten. ●●

HoneyB

Surviving My Years in the Westboro Baptist Church Lauren Drain with Lisa Pulitzer

When money isn’t enough, four women decide to take over the California governor’s house in this new erotic tale from New York Times bestselling author HoneyB.

In the bestselling tradition of Escape and Stolen Innocence comes the first look behind the curtains of the Westboro Baptist Church, by a young woman cast out from the secretive cult.

Garnishing the backing of the wealthiest women in California, Morgan convinces her friend Brooks to run for governor. California has never had a female governor, but Morgan has a campaign strategy that, while non-traditional, is sure to work. She convinces their group of friends to sexually blackmail each of Brooks’s opponents. The team will do whatever it takes to get videos, pictures, even sperm DNA from Brooks’s competitors, forcing them to withdraw from the governor’s race one-by-one. All goes according to plan until someone attempts to kill Brooks. And when a secret involving Morgan’s husband is revealed, she will stop at nothing to get revenge for the betrayal. ●●

Anyone who has watched the news in the past several years has seen coverage of the Westboro Baptist Church. They’ve made a name for themselves by picketing military and civilian funerals with shockingly offensive signs promoting their antigay, anti-Semitic, and anti-everything-and-everybody-else agenda. When Lauren Drain’s formerly liberal and secular father set out to produce a documentary about the WBC, his detached interest gradually evolved into fascination, and he moved his entire family to Kansas to join the church and live on their compound. Over the next seven years, Lauren fully assimilated their extreme beliefs, and traveled the country as an active and vocal picketer herself. But as she matured and began to challenge some of the church’s tenets, she was unceremoniously cast out, and permanently cut off from her family and everyone else she knew and loved. BANISHED is the story of Lauren’s fight to find herself amidst dramatic changes in a world of extremists and a life in exile.

Lauren Drain was featured on ABC News’ 20/20, and the YouTube video of her appearance has had over 1.5 million hits to date. Since then, she has refrained from further publicity and will continue to do so until BANISHED is released. Narratives of escape and expulsion from sects and cults have generated widespread media coverage and sales, as demonstrated by the New York Times bestsellers Stolen Innocence (William Morrow, 2008), Escape (Broadway, 2007), and Shattered Dreams (Center Street, 8/07). This is the first book for a general audience about the mysterious Westboro Baptist Church and its powerful leader, Fred Phelps. Lisa Pulitzer is the co-author of several bestselling books, including Stolen Innocence.

Sister Mine Nalo Hopkinson

The long awaited new novel from beloved writer and award-winning author Nalo Hopkinson.

Makeda is tired of living in the shadow of her twin sister, Abby. The twins were born conjoined, and the surgery to separate them left Makeda physically healthy but without magic, and Abby with twisted legs but with supernatural musical gifts.  By their magical relatives’ standards, though, Abby is the only one worthy of being considered family, while Makeda is beneath their notice. Fed up with feeling second-best, Makeda decides to move out on her own.  Her new building is home to a budding rock band with a talented (and very cute) lead singer, Brie—a man with his own mysterious magic.  But Makeda’s flirtation with Brie is interrupted when her father suddenly sheds his human form and disappears.   Makeda might be the only one in the family who can find him, and if she’s to succeed, she’ll need to discover her own kind of mojo. ●●

Mortality

The One World Schoolhouse

Christopher Hitchens

A New Approach to Teaching and Learning Salman Khan

Courageous, insightful, and candid thoughts on malady and mortality from one of our most celebrated writers.

Christopher Hitchens

The founder of the Khan Academy—the world’s most popular free online learning site— shares the true story of his school’s astonishing success, and offers a revolutionary vision for the future of education. A free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere: this is the goal of the Khan Academy, a passion project that grew from an ex-hedge fund analyst’s online tutoring sessions with his niece, who was struggling with algebra, into a worldwide phenomenon. Today, millions have viewed and subscribed to the Khan Academy’s YouTube videos, which have expanded to encompass nearly every conceivable subject. Like all great innovators, Salman Khan established himself as an outsider, with no teaching background to tie him to broken models. Now, schools seek his advice about connecting to students in a digital age, and people of all ages and backgrounds flock to his site to utilize his new approach to learning. In THE ONE WORLD SCHOOLHOUSE, Khan presents his remarkable story, as well as his vision for the future of education. More than just a solution, his book is a call for free, universal, global education, and an explanation of how to make this dream a reality.

Christopher Hitchens was on a book tour for his memoir Hitch-22 when he discovered he had cancer of the esophagus, an episode described with characteristic wit and candor in a series of articles he wrote for Vanity Fair. In these essays, for which Hitchens was given the National Magazine Award, he describes his struggle not only with the disease but with its meaning to his friends and supporters, as well as his critics and detractors. “Both elegant and moving, these columns display insight and, bravery,” wrote the National Magazine Award judges. “Christopher Hitchens is the best writer in the worst of times, and we are grateful for him.” ●●

“Christopher Hitchens, the polemical polymath, is to modern American discourse what Lenny Bruce was to comedy. He changed the game, and in so doing forced us to examine our core beliefs.” —Timothy Egan, New York Times “Few writers can match Hitchens’s cerebral pyrotechnics. Fewer still can emulate his punch as an intellectual character assassin. It is hard not to admire the sheer virtuosity of his prose. With Hitchens one simply goes along for the ride. The destination hardly matters.” —Financial Times “There are few people in this country who bring such a literary perspective to political and policy controversies.”

Jewish Jocks

The Org

An Unorthodox Hall of Fame

The Underlying Logic of the Office

edited by Franklin Foer and Marc Tracy

Ray Fisman and Tim Sullivan

A collection of essays by today’s preeminent writers on significant Jewish figures in sports, told with humor, heart, and an eye toward the ever-elusive question of Jewish identity.

The office is dead. Long live the office! Introducing an entertaining and fascinating look at why corporations function the way they do—and why our insane office culture might just be the key to greatness for organizations and individuals.

Editors Franklin Foer and Marc Tracy propose a successor to Great Jews in Sports, the book every Bar Mitzvah boy received as a gift during the postwar years. The essays in  JEWISH JOCKS: An Unorthodox Hall of Fame cover the most influential Jews in sports—athletes, coaches, broadcasters, team owners, trainers and even statisticians (in the finite universe of Jewish jocks, they count!).  Contributors include some of today’s most celebrated writers, such as The New Yorker editor David Remnick; novelists Jonathan Safran Foer, Shalom Auslander, and Booker Prize-winner Howard Jacobson; sportswriter Buzz Bissinger; economist Lawrence Summers; columnist David Brooks; journalists Jane Leavy, Daniel Okrent, George Packer, David Plotz, and Dahlia Lithwick; bestselling authors Stephen J. Dubner, David Margolick, Rich Cohen, Steven Pinker, Judith Shulevitz, and Ron Rosenbaum, writing on figures such as Howard Cosell, Art Shamsky, Kerri Strug, Harold Solomon, Sandy Koufax, Shirley Povich, and many, many more.

The world is full of organizational cynics. Look around. Heck, look in the mirror. We sit in our cubes, adjust our chairs, sharpen our pencils and stare at our computer screens with the sense that we’re immersed in dysfunction. We could, we’re sure, do a far better job of running things if we were given the chance. But we know we won’t get the chance and so sink into doubt, distrust, and pessimism. But it doesn’t have to be that way. In THE ORG, authors Ray Fisman and Tim Sullivan take readers through the logic of organizations using basic economic principles as their guide. Examining why organizations exist in the first place, THE ORG explores the tradeoffs that every corporation faces—from how to select members to how to inspire and discipline them—and then looks at the components of the whole structure from cubicle dwellers to CEOs. Using the tools of organizational economics, THE ORG provides readers with a concrete, logical, and practical way of thinking about how organizations ought to work. The insights unearthed in THE ORG may surprise you and may also explain how, with a few tweaks, the dysfunctional nature of today’s office may nonetheless provide the ideal structure for getting the job done.

The Good Nurse

A Novel

The Life and Times of Charles Cullen, Serial Killer

Amity GaIge

Charles Graeber

A lyrical and deeply affecting novel recounting the seven days a father spends on the road with his six-year-old daughter after kidnapping her during a parental visit.

An intimate—and frightening—glimpse inside the mind of America’s most prolific serial killer, Charles Cullen, whose 16-year nursing career left as many as 300 dead.

Attending summer camp as a boy, Erik Schröder—a first generation East German immigrant—adopts the name Eric Kennedy, a decision that will set him on an improbable and transformative journey. Years later, Erik escapes to Lake Champlain, Vermont, with his daughter, hiding from authorities amidst a heated custody battle with his estranged wife, Laura, who is unaware of his previous identity. From a correctional facility, Erik surveys the course of his life: his love for Laura, his childhood, and his experience as a father. SCHRÖDER is a sweeping, deftly imagined exploration of the identities we take on in our lives, those we are born with, and those we construct for ourselves. ●●

Charles Cullen, RN, was one of the most accomplished serial killers in recent history. For 16 years, working in multiple hospitals, he had a hand in the deaths of as many as 300 patients. Though colleagues knew—or had reason to know—what was going on, no one stopped him. THE GOOD NURSE does more than tell the horrifying tale of Cullen’s deadly career; it paints an incredibly vivid portrait of madness and offers an excoriating look inside America’s broken medical system. Cullen is but one of the story’s many riveting characters. Others include a down-and-out detective and an Erin Brockovich-type employee who wrestles with herself and the truth about her friend and colleague, eventually joining forces to end Cullen’s killing spree. Impossible to put down, THE GOOD NURSE ensures that readers will never enter a hospital in the same way again.

Amity Gaige was named one of the National Book Foundation’s “5 under 35” Outstanding Emerging Novelists. Gaige is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship, McDowell Colony Fellowship, and a Baltic Writing Residency Fellowship. Her two previous novels received rapturous reviews. The author’s essays, articles, and stories have appeared in the Yale Review, Los Angeles Times, O, The Oprah Magazine, The Literary Review, and in a 2009 collection of essays entitled Feed Me (Random House, 2009).

Praise for Amity Gaige:

marketing ADVERTISING

• Print advertising in New York Times Book Review

Charles Graeber had exclusive access to Charles Cullen and plumbs territory that has not yet been covered in depth. Earlier books on the case did not have access to the killer or other key figures central to the investigation. Written in gorgeous, immersive prose, THE GOOD NURSE follows the page-turning arc of a traditional detective story, while also raising haunting questions about the institutions to which Americans turn for critical care. A former medical student and medical researcher, Charles Graeber is a National Magazine Award-nominated writer and contributing editor for Wired and National Geographic Adventure. His stories have been published in the New York Times, The New Yorker, New York magazine, GQ, Vogue, and Salon, among other media outlets, and he has appeared on CNN and numerous radio programs.

“The measure of Gaige’s great gifts as a storyteller is that she persuades you to believe in a situation that shouldn’t be believable, and to love a narrator who shouldn’t be lovable. Seldom has such a daring concept for a novel been grounded in such an appealing character.” —Jonathan Franzen

Republic, Lost

Essays by Christopher Hitchens

How Money Corrupts Congress—and a Plan to Stop It

Christopher Hitchens

Lawrence Lessig

“Few can match his precision and erudition, and his prose crackles with such energy that even when his essays infuriate (and there’s something here to anger nearly everyone), one is left deeply grateful for his singular voice.” —Boston Globe

“A well-reasoned argument on the structural problems now paralyzing American government.” —Kirkus Reviews

In this riveting collection of essays, Christopher Hitchens looks with love, loathing, warmth, and authority at a wide range of political and cultural issues. His fresh perceptions of such varied figures as Charles Dickens, Karl Marx, Rebecca West, George Orwell, J.G. Ballard, and Philip Larkin are matched in brilliance by his pungent discussions and intrepid observations, gathered from a lifetime of traveling and reporting from such destinations as Iran, China, and Pakistan. Hitchens’s directness, elegance, lightly carried erudition, critical and psychological insight, humor, and sympathy—applied as they are here to a dazzling variety of subjects—all set a standard for the essayist that has rarely been matched. What emerges from this indispensable volume is an intellectual selfportrait of a writer with an exemplary steadiness of purpose and a love affair with the delights and seductions of the English language, a man anchored in a profound and humane vision of the human longing for reason and justice. ●●

Christopher Hitchens was the author of numerous books, including his recent memoir, Hitch-22 (Twelve, 978-0-446-54033-9, 6/10), which was a New York Times and USA TODAY bestseller.

Hardcover ISBN: 978-1-4555-0277-6, 9/11

In an era of ballooning corporate campaign expenditures, unleashed by the Supreme Court in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, trust in our government is at an all time low. More than ever before, Americans believe that money buys results in Congress—and that our Republic has been lost. Using examples that resonate as powerfully on the Right as on the Left, REPUBLIC, LOST not only makes clear how the economy of influence defeats the will of the people, but offers cogent strategies to correct our course— from a constitutional convention to a Regent Presidency. A onetime friend of Barack Obama, Lessig is as critical of the president and the Democratic Party as he is of Republicans. Both have allowed the core institution of our democracy to become little more than a shill for the most powerful moneyed interests in our Republic. America may be divided, argues Lessig, but its citizens recognize that corruption is their common enemy, and they must find a way to fight it. ●●

“Lessig is one of those rare legal scholars with both a clear narrative voice and a fine eye for historical irony.” —Washington Post ●●

Hailed by The Atlantic, Publishers Weekly, and Kirkus Reviews, among others, REPUBLIC, LOST has become an important manifesto in the fight to keep corporate power out of government. An excerpt was published in Rolling Stone, and Professor Lessig wrote an influential New York Times Op-Ed on the subject. He appeared on The Daily Show, Charlie Rose, Rachel Maddow, and NPR, among others. This edition will be available just in time for the 2012 elections. Professor Lawrence Lessig is one of America’s foremost intellectuals, and an expert on ethics. He is the author of six books on law and technology, including Remix (Penguin, 2008), Free Culture (Penguin, 2005), The Future of Ideas (Random House, 2001), and Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace (Basic Books, 1999).

Man Seeks God

The Limit

My Flirtations with the Divine

Life and Death on the 1961 Grand Prix Circuit

Eric Weiner

Michael Cannell

“[A] magical mystery tour that illuminates our inner and outer paths.”

—National Geographic Traveler

“A testosterone-fueled nonfiction book about auto racing in its bloody golden age…. In prose as fast and unadorned as an early Ferrari, Cannell rolls out an entertaining and exciting story on the way to the finish line.” —Associated Press

When a health scare puts him in the hospital, Eric Weiner—an agnostic by default—finds himself tangling with an unexpected question posed to him by a well-meaning nurse: “Have you found your God yet?” Spurred on by the question of what spiritual principles to impart to his young daughter, he hopes to come, if he can, to a personal understanding of the divine. Willing to do anything to better understand faith, and to find the god or gods that speak to him, he travels across the globe, tackling our most pressing spiritual questions: Where do we come from? What happens when we die? How should we live our lives? Where do all the missing socks go? At a time when more Americans than ever are choosing a new faith, and when spiritual questions loom large in the modern age, MAN SEEKS GOD presents a perspective on religion that is sure to delight, inspire, and entertain. ●●

THE LIMIT tells the true story of Phil Hill, a lowly California mechanic who, defying all expectations, became the first American to win the Grand Prix championship. In the tradition of Seabiscuit and The Right Stuff, Cannell’s highoctane narrative evokes the lives of the daredevils who tempted fate each Sunday by driving well over 150 mph without benefit of seat belts or roll bars—an era when drivers were “crushed, burned, and beheaded with unnerving regularity.” Written with the pacing of a novel, THE LIMIT pits Hill against his Ferrari teammate and rival, the soigné and coolheaded German Count Wolfgang Von Trips (nicknamed “Count Von Crash”), as they jockey for the top spot throughout the 1961 season. From the stink of grease-smothered pits to the long anxious nights in lonely European hotels, THE LIMIT captures a distinct moment when men the world over were driven to push the boundaries of the possible—and culminates in one of the deadliest races in Grand Prix history.

In hardcover, MAN SEEKS GOD received strong reviews from such publications as the New York Times Book Review, Washington Post, National Geographic Traveler, Publishers Weekly, Booklist (starred review), among numerous other publications. Eric Weiner’s previous book, The Geography of Bliss (Twelve, 1/08), was a New York Times bestseller that won praise in major publications, including the New York Times Book Review, Washington Post, Denver Post, Newsweek, Time, Vanity Fair, and GQ. It sold more than 180,000 hardcover and trade paperback copies combined. The National Geographic Traveler website selected The Geography of Bliss as their “Book of the Month,” and the author appeared on 20/20 and The Colbert Report, among other broadcasts.

Grisly, spectacular, pyrotechnic wrecks….His breathless depictions of disaster will have you white-knuckling your armchair.” —Boston Globe “In often jaw-dropping detail, Cannell explores both Hill’s triumph (he remains the only Yank to win Formula One’s coveted crown) as well as the grisly world that was auto racing in an age before safety concerns.” —USA TODAY

His previous book, the critically acclaimed I.M. Pei: Mandarin of Modernism, was published by Clarkson Potter in 1995.

“Cannell’s full-throttle epic leaves you breathless.”

“Books about God tend to fall into two categories: objective inquiries into the nature of belief and personal tales of spiritual awakening….Eric Weiner’s MAN SEEKS GOD nimbly and often hilariously straddles the fence between the two genres….He’s Woody Allen channeling Karen Armstrong.”

Eminent Outlaws

A Modern Guide to Manners

The Gay Writers Who Changed America

Henry Alford

Christopher Bram

Now in paperback, a laugh-out-loud guide to modern manners—from acclaimed humorist, author, and Vanity Fair columnist Henry Alford.

The widely acclaimed cultural history of the interconnected lives of the 20th century’s most influential gay writers.

A few years ago, humorist and journalist Henry Alford found himself “reverse-apologizing”: offering apologies for other people, on their behalf, when they failed to do so themselves. Ever since, he’s realized he needed to take a closer look at manners—his own, and others’. So he interviews experts both likely (Miss Manners, Tim Gunn) and unlikely (a former prisoner, an army sergeant). He volunteers himself as a tour guide for foreigners visiting New York City, and as an online etiquette coach for his friends. He travels to Japan. He teaches Miss Manners how to steal a cab. He designates the World’s Most Annoying Bride. Providing answers to questions like, Why shouldn’t you ask a cabdriver where’s he’s from?, and Why is posting baby pictures on Facebook a fraught activity?, this hilarious and non-elitist book looks past the standard “dos” and “don’ts” of good form, in search of ways to treat everyone better. ●●

In the years following World War II, a small group of gay writers established themselves as literary power players, fueling cultural changes that would resonate for decades to come, and transforming the American landscape forever. In EMINENT OUTLAWS, novelist Christopher Bram brilliantly chronicles the rise of gay consciousness in American writing. Beginning with a first wave of major gay literary figures—Tennessee Williams, Gore Vidal, Truman Capote, Allen Ginsberg, and James Baldwin—he shows how (despite criticism and occasional setbacks) these pioneers set the stage for new generations of gay writers to build on what they had begun: Christopher Isherwood, Edmund White, and Tony Kushner, among them. Weaving together the crosscurrents, feuds, and subversive energies that provoked these writers to greatness, EMINENT OUTLAWS is a rich and essential work. With keen insights, it takes readers through 50 years of momentous change: from a time when being a homosexual was a crime in 49 states and into an age of same-sex marriage and the end of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

The hardcover edition was featured in the New York Times, Vanity Fair, NPR, Salon, Publishers Weekly, and Kirkus Reviews, among others. Henry Alford’s previous book, How to Live (Twelve, 978-0-44619603-1, 1/09), was named one of the Best Books of the Year by Publishers Weekly. It was featured in major media outlets including USA TODAY, Time, Newsweek, Vanity Fair, O, The Oprah Magazine, and NPR’s All Things Considered. The author has a weekly column in the New York Times and his work appears regularly in Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Travel+Leisure, the New York Times Book Review, and on NPR. He is the author of Big Kiss (Broadway, 2001), a chronicle of his attempt to become a working actor, which won a Thurber Prize, and Municipal Bondage (Random House, 1992), a humor collection.

Seriously…I’m Kidding

James Patterson and David Ellis

Ellen DeGeneres

A luxurious Monte Carlo vacation lands four women in prison for a murder they didn’t commit, in James Patterson’s latest thriller.

Ellen’s New York Times bestselling book, expounding her views about life, love, and American Idol, now in paperback.

Abbie Elliot gave up her life to follow her diplomat husband to Zurich. Now, she and her three best friends are in desperate need of a weekend getaway and decide it’s the perfect time for a fling in Monte Carlo. They surrender themselves to every temptation: fine dining, high-stakes gambling, and gorgeous men. But the fun comes to a screeching halt when two bodies are found, and they become the police’s prime suspects. In a dramatic trial, the women’s lives are laid bare. It becomes clear that they have been framed, but one question remains: Who is trying to lock them away forever? With delicious twists and death-defying speed, GUILTY WIVES is a nonstop joy ride of excess, friendship, and betrayal as only James Patterson can create. ●●

“I bet a lot of you are probably thinking, Ellen (or Mrs. DeGeneres, depending on how well we know one another) why are you writing another book after already proving yourself by penning two wildly successful tomes? Well the truth is, since I wrote my last book a lot has happened in my life. I got married. I got my own talk show. I started a record label. I became a CoverGirl®. I’ve experienced a whole lot the last few years and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you’ll take a moment to sit back, relax, and enjoy the words I’ve put together for you in this book. I think you’ll find I’ve left no stone unturned, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I’m saying is, let us begin, shall we?” ●●

Here Comes Trouble

The Orchard

Stories from My Life

A Memoir

Michael Moore

Theresa Weir

Now in trade paperback, the New York Times bestseller that “is something to behold…it belongs on a shelf with memoirs by Mother Jones, Abbie Hoffman, Phil Ochs, Rachel Carson, Harvey Pekar and even Thomas Paine.” —New York Times

“A lovely book in all the ways that really matter, one of those rare and wonderful memoirs in which people you’ve never met become your friends....Read it: you’ll be glad you did.”

Breaking the autobiographical mode, Michael Moore presents 24 far-ranging, irreverent, and stranger-than-fiction vignettes from his own early life. One moment he’s an 11-yearold boy lost in the Senate and found by Bobby Kennedy; and in the next, he’s inside the Bitburg cemetery with a dazed and confused Ronald Reagan. Fast-forwarding to 2003, he stuns the world by uttering the words “We live in fictitious times... with a fictitious president” in place of the expected “I’d like to thank the Academy.” And none of that even comes close to the night the friendly priest at the seminary decides to show him how to perform his own exorcism. Capturing the zeitgeist of the past 50 years, yet deeply personal and unflinchingly honest, HERE COMES TROUBLE takes readers on an unforgettable, take-no-prisoners ride through the life and times of Michael Moore. Alternately funny, eye opening, and moving, it’s a book he has been writing—and living—his entire life.

THE ORCHARD is the story of a street-smart city girl who must adapt to a new life on an apple farm after she falls in love with Adrian Curtis, the golden boy of a prominent local family whose lives and orchards seem to be cursed. Married after only three months, young Theresa finds life with Adrian on the farm far more difficult and dangerous than she suspected. Rejected by her husband’s family as an outsider, she slowly educates herself about the isolated world of farming, even as she falls more deeply in love with her husband, a man she at first hardly knew. But when a codling moth epidemic threatens to irreparably destroy the orchard, that fragile new love will be tested as she and Adrian fight to save the land that has been in his family for generations.

Life Itself

A Novel

A Memoir

Joshilyn Jackson

Roger Ebert

“Jackson’s most absorbing book yet….A mesmerizing tale of a family coping with the revelation of a secret that will change their lives.” —Booklist (starred review)

Renowned film critic Roger Ebert’s New York Times bestselling memoir, hailed by Maureen Dowd in the New York Times Book Review as “a candid, moveable feast.”

Roger Ebert is the best-known film critic of our time. He has been reviewing films for the Chicago Sun-Times since 1967, and was the first film critic ever to win a Pulitzer Prize. He has appeared on television for four decades, including 23 years as co-host of Siskel & Ebert at the Movies. In 2006, complications from thyroid cancer treatment resulted in the loss of his ability to eat, drink, or speak. But with the loss of his voice, he has only become a more prolific and influential writer. In this candid, personal history, Ebert chronicles it all: his loves, losses, and obsessions, his marriage, his politics, and his spiritual beliefs. He shares insights into movie stars and directors like John Wayne, Werner Herzog, and Martin Scorsese. Filled with the same dry wit and sharp observations that his readers have long cherished, this is more than a memoir—it is a warm-hearted and inspiring look at life itself.

Every 15 years, trouble comes after the Slocumb women. Now, as their youngest turns 15, she’s desperate to know who used their yard as a makeshift cemetery, and why. Their unlikely matriarch, 45-year-old Ginny, doesn’t know the truth—she only knows she must do everything in her power to keep it hidden. Between them is Liza, silenced by a stroke, haunted by the choices she made as a teenager, with the answers trapped inside her. To survive Liza’s secrets and Mosey’s insistent adventures, Ginny must learn to trust the love that braids the strands of their past—and stop at nothing to defend their future. ●●

Shaq Uncut

Find Your Focus, Master Distraction, and Get the Right Things Done

My Story

Peter Bregman

Shaquille O’Neal with Jackie MacMullan

Now in trade paperback, the “intensely smart, insanely readable, and eminently practical guide to boosting our effectiveness and deepening our satisfaction.”

The New York Times bestselling autobiography of legendary basketball star Shaquille O’Neal, covering both his storied career and his colorful life off the court—now in paperback.

—Daniel H. Pink, bestselling author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

Based upon his weekly Harvard Business Review column (which is one of the most popular columns on HBR.com, receiving hundreds of thousands of unique page views a month), 18 MINUTES clearly shows how busy people can cut through all the daily clutter and distractions and find a way to focus on those key items which are truly the top priorities in their lives. Bregman works from the premise that the best way to combat constant and distracting interruptions is to create productive distractions of one’s own. Based upon a series of short bite-sized chapters, his approach allows one to safely navigate through the constant chatter of emails, text messages, phone calls, and endless meetings that prevent us from focusing our time on those things that are truly important. Mixing first-person insights with unique case studies, Bregman sprinkles his charming book with pathways that can get us on the right trail in 18 minutes or less.

Shaquille “Shaq” O’Neal is a four-time NBA champion and a three-time NBA Finals MVP. An All-American at Louisiana State University, he was the number one draft pick by the NBA in 1992. But there is a lot more to Shaquille O’Neal than just basketball. Outsized in both scale and persona, Shaq is famous for his playful, sometimes provocative, personality. Whether producing his own rap albums, challenging celebrities on his hit show Shaq Vs., studying for his PhD, conducting the Boston Pops orchestra, hosting Saturday Night Live, or serving as a reserve police officer, Shaq has led a unique and rollicking life. In this candid new autobiography, readers will hear first-hand about his colorful career, NBA victories, thoughts on Kobe Bryant, Phil Jackson, LeBron James, and Pat Riley, and so much more. ●●

“Pick this book up and read it. Bregman’s wisdom, humility, and ability to tell a great story run through every page of this gem. 18 MINUTES is the best blend of a business book and a self-help book I have ever read.”

Shaquille Rashaun O’Neal is one of only three players to win NBA MVP, All-Star Game MVP, and Finals MVP awards in the same year (2000). With more than three million followers on Twitter, Shaq is extremely popular and always in demand with the media for interviews. Bestselling author Jackie MacMullan is considered the nation’s leading writer on basketball. Her last book, When the Game was Ours (Houghton Mifflin, 2009) by Magic Johnson and Larry Bird, hit the New York Times bestseller list and sold 170,000 hardcover copies. MacMullan is a constant presence on ESPN and was a long-time columnist for Sports Illustrated and the Boston Globe. Hardcover ISBN: 978-1-4555-0441-1, 11/11

In the tradition of Emily Giffin and Marisa de los Santos comes an engaging and moving novel about three women struggling with signs of strain in their longtime friendship.

#1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci introduces a new, lethal hero in his next highly anticipated thriller.

It begins with a hit gone wrong. Will Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, DC. But something about this mission doesn’t seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable. He refuses to kill. Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a fourteenyear-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn’t an ordinary runaway—her parents were murdered, and her own life is in danger. Against all of his professional habits, Robie rescues her and finds he can’t walk away. He needs to help her. Even worse, the more Robie learns about the girl, the more he’s convinced she is at the center of a vast cover-up, one that may explain her parents’ deaths and stretch to unimaginable levels of power. Now, Robie may have to step out of the shadows in order to save this girl’s life…and perhaps his own.

Waverly, who’s always been the group’s anchor, runs a cozy bakery but worries each month about her mounting debt.  Kate is married to a man who’s on track to be the next governor of Virginia, but the larger questions brewing in their future are unsettling her. Stay-athome mom Amy has a perfect life on paper, but as the horrific secret she’s keeping from her friends threatens to reveal itself, she panics. As life’s pressures build all around them, Waverly knows she has some big decisions to make. In doing so, she will discover that the lines between loyalty and betrayal can become blurred, happy endings aren’t always clear-cut, and sometimes you have to risk everything to gain the life you deserve. ●●

Trust Me, I’m Dr. Ozzy

Red Alert

Advice from Rock’s Ultimate Survivor

How China’s Growing Prosperity Threatens the American Way of Life

Ozzy Osbourne with Chris Ayres

Stephen Leeb with Gregory Dorsey

The Prince of Darkness’ New York Times bestseller that sheds light on his seemingly superhuman ability to stay alive, and offers advice that no sane human being should follow.

“Terse, well-reasoned, and comprehensive, this is a much-needed shot in the arm for American complacency.” —Publishers Weekly

Wondering if science could explain how he survived his 40-year avalanche of drugs and alcohol, Ozzy Osbourne had his entire DNA mapped in 2010. The “Full Ozzy Genome” contained variants that scientists had never before encountered and the findings were presented at the prestigious TEDMED Conference in San Diego. The Sunday Times of London appointed Ozzy its star health advice columnist, arguing that his multiple near-death experiences, 40-year history of drug abuse, and extreme hypochondria qualified him more than any other for the job. The column was an overnight hit, and was quickly picked up by Rolling Stone to give it an audience of millions. Part humor, part memoir, and part bad advice, TRUST ME, I’M DR. OZZY finds Ozzy answering readers’ (and celebrities’) questions with his outrageous wit and surprising wisdom, digging deep into his past to tell memoir-style survival stories never published before, and offering charts, sidebars, and recipes. ●●

With startling statistics, charts, and in-depth research showing how China continues to expand its economic reach, RED ALERT is a  provocative and frightening examination of China’s growing political, economic, and social power, and the threat it poses to the Western world. Did you know that... • China is quietly purchasing and storing vast amounts of the Earth’s remaining oil and gold? • China has become a major player on Wall Street and controls billions in American investments? • While the U.S. has been fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, China has been focusing  its substantial muscle on upgrading its infrastructure and industrial strength? • The Chinese control most of the world’s rare earth metals, all of which are essential for cell phones, computers, and electronic devices? • The Chinese have been developing suspiciously strong economic ties in many growing African nations?

In hardcover, TRUST ME, I’M DR. OZZY hit the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists and sold more than 97,000 copies. The “Ask Dr. Ozzy” column, where Ozzy answers medical questions from readers using only his hard-won experience to guide his diagnoses, is consistently one of Rolling Stone’s most emailed items. TRUST ME, I’M DR. OZZY is a natural expansion of the column, including some of its best material, as well as a lot of new writing. I Am Ozzy (GCP hardcover, 1/10; GCP trade paperback, 1/11) hit #2 on the New York Times hardcover bestseller list, among others, and sold close to 190,000 copies combined.

Point Your Face at This

NicHolas Sparks

Demetri Martin

The New York Times bestselling novel of romance and suspense is now available in a beautifully repackaged edition.

The New York Times bestselling author and comedian is back in a softer format.

In his first book, This Is a Book, Demetri Martin introduced fans and readers to his unique brand of long-form humor writing. Now Demetri returns with an eclectic volume devoted entirely to his trademark one-liners and drawings, as well as short prose and poetry, leaving the longer-form material for his next hardcover. Like an indie stepchild of Gary Larson and Jack Handey, POINT YOUR FACE AT THIS contains hundreds of drawings, jokes, and page-long bits, showcasing Martin’s particular penchant for brevity and a sensibility all its own—and will be a great gift book and a must-have for fans of the brainy, ambidextrous, comedian, palindromist (and author), Demetri Martin.

Julie Barenson’s young husband left her two unexpected gifts before he died—a Great Dane puppy named Singer and the promise that he would always be watching over her. Now, four years have passed, and 29-year-old Julie is emotionally ready to make a commitment to someone again. But who? Choosing between two seemingly ideal suitors should bring her more happiness than she’s had in years. Instead, Julie is soon fighting for her life in a nightmare spawned by a chilling deception and jealousy so poisonous that it has become a murderous desire... ●●

Shattered

Spy in a Little Black Dress

Kia DuPree

Maxine Kenneth

Kiki is back in the highly anticipated sequel to Kia DuPree’s Damaged, the novel Library Journal called a “knockout of a story.”

The second book in the thrilling chronicles of Jacqueline Bouvier as a CIA operative finds our heroine deep undercover in Cuba.

Kiki’s world is turned upside down when her partially deaf mother loses custody of her children, sending 11-year-old Kiki into foster care. She runs away with a friend in hopes of finding a better life, but instead they run straight into the arms of a pedophile and a life far too mature for their young minds to grasp. Held in captivity for months, the girls are finally set free when a neighbor exposes them. But what should be a happy moment for Kiki actually sends her on a life path that quickly spirals out of control. From the abuse she receives from her captor to the violent rape by a loved one to being part of a heinous drug trafficking scheme, Kiki will risk everything time and time again in the pursuit of a normal life.

Jackie’s CIA boss, Allen Dulles, has given her a new assignment: undercover as a tourist, she will go to Havana, Cuba, and ascertain the intentions of a young revolutionary opposed to the dictatorial regime of Fulgencio Batista. His name is Fidel Castro. During the course of her mission, she encounters a dashing congressman, John F. Kennedy, but their first meeting ends in disaster. Soon, Jackie is being harassed by the Stasi (East Germany’s Secret Police), dancing alongside Frank Sinatra in steamy Cuban nightclubs, and running for her life. In addition, she’s beginning to have feelings for her fellow agent and is torn between her love for him and her burgeoning feelings for the handsome congressman at home. ●●

Praise for Kia DuPree: “DuPree’s knack for dialogue and her insight and compassion for her characters inspire the reader’s empathy—an outstanding achievement.” —Publishers Weekly on Silenced

James Bond meets Charade in this glamorous spy series about Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy’s fictitious adventures as an unofficial CIA agent. Inspired by classic films like North by Northwest, SPY IN A LITTLE BLACK DRESS is a fast-paced read, blending suspense, romance, and high fashion with tongue-in-cheek humor. This edition contains a teaser chapter from the first novel in the series, Paris to Die For (GCP, 7/11). The series is inspired by an actual letter filed in the John F. Kennedy Library written by Jackie and revealing her job offer from the newly formed CIA. 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis, which presents unique publicity opportunities as JFK and Havana are featured prominently in SPY IN A LITTLE BLACK DRESS. Maxine Kenneth is the writing team of Maxine Schnall and Kenneth Salikof. Salikof is an award-winning screenwriter and independent book blogger and lives in New York City. Schnall is a Pulitzer Prize nominee and former CBS radio talk show host and lives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

When Lizzie’s youthful indiscretion forced her into Australian exile, she had no idea that her banishment would bring her face to face with the only woman who could unravel the mysteries of her past...her long lost half sister. Though Lizzie and Ria grew up worlds apart, the two felt the instant connection of sisterhood. But when Ria’s tragic death leaves Lizzie completely alone, she makes a desperate decision to adopt Ria’s identity as her own and go in search of the family she has never known. Geoffrey wants nothing more than to continue tending his small country parish, but when his elder brothers die, he has no choice but to become the heir his family needs. Ready to sacrifice his own desires, Geoffrey is completely unprepared for his reaction to his deceased brother’s widow when she appears feverish and injured on his doorstep. Though the law prohibits Geoffrey from claiming “Ria” as his own, he can’t help but be drawn to the mysterious beauty. With both their futures at stake, will Lizzie be able to keep up her facade as Ria, even if it costs her the thing she wants most in the world—Geoffrey’s love? ●●

Barry Barnes is a business professor at the H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship at Nova Southeastern University in Florida and has been studying the Dead’s business practices for more than 20 years. He’s lectured frequently to business leaders on the topic and has been interviewed on CBS News, the Fox Business channel, and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, as well as radio stations around the U.S.

“Barnes is proposing that corporate values need not be thought of as apart from human values, that the behaviors and attitudes that bind us to one another can be the same ones that encourage loyalty between workers and companies and consumers and products.”

Calamity, born Chastity, has renamed herself in a way she feels most fitting. She’s a 50-something grandmother whose mother disappeared when she was a teenager and whose father has just passed away as she begins menopause. With this physical change of life comes the return of a special power for finding lost things, something she hasn’t been able to do since childhood. A little tingling in the hands, then a massive hot-flash, and suddenly objects, even whole buildings, lost to her since childhood begin showing up around Calamity. One of the lost things Calamity recovers is a small boy who washes up on the shore outside her house after a rainstorm. She takes this bruised but cheerful three-year-old under her wing and grows attached to him, a process that awakens all the old memories, frustrations, and mysteries around her own mother and father. She’ll learn that this young boy’s family is the most unusual one she’s ever encountered—and they want their son back.

The Grateful Dead, one of the most popular bands of all time, still enjoys incredible relevance today. But let’s admit it—they weren’t exactly poster boys for corporate America. Or were they? For an extraordinary 30 years, the Dead improvised a unique business plan—making huge profits and pioneering practices that have been subsequently embraced by the corporate world. Now, professor and lifelong Deadhead Barry Barnes shares the 10 most innovative business lessons from the band’s illustrious career, including: • creating and delivering superior customer value • implementing a flat management structure • giving away product for free to increase demand Barnes shows how the Dead were masters of “strategic improvisation”—the ability to adapt to changing times—and that their success lay in their commitment to relentless variation. EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT BUSINESS I LEARNED FROM THE GRATEFUL DEAD teaches readers how they did it—and what any business can learn from their long, strange trip.

Private London

The DASH Diet Action Plan

JAMES PATTERSON & MARK PEARSON

Proven to Boost Weight Loss and Improve Health MARLA HELLER, MS, RD

James Patterson’s first trade paperback original—continuing the #1 bestselling Private series.

The New York Times bestselling diet that boosts weight loss and lowers blood pressure and cholesterol without medication.

For Hannah Shapiro, a beautiful young American student, this particular nightmare began eight years ago in Los Angeles, when Jack Morgan, owner of Private—the world’s most exclusive detective agency—saved her from a horrific death. She has fled her country, but can’t flee her past. The terror has followed her to London, and now it is down to former Royal Military Police Sergeant Dan Carter, head of Private London, to save her all over again. In central London, young women are being abducted off the street and mutilated in a particularly mysterious way. Dan has put the full resources of Private International in action in a desperate race against the odds. But with the clock ticking, Private, the largest and most technologically advanced detection agency in the world, doesn’t have the one thing they desperately need—time. ●●

Something terrifying is happening in Oslo; celebrities are turning up dead in the most macabre of ways. Can Stubo and Vik solve this twisted series of murders in time?

Unholy Night

Private: #1 Suspect JAMES PATTERSON & MAXINE PAETRO

SETH GRAHAME-SMITH

Private director Jack Morgan is accused of a horrible murder—and not even his own worldclass investigators can prove he didn’t do it.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter comes the next chapter in dark historical revisionism—now in paperback.

Since former Marine helicopter pilot Jack Morgan started Private, it has become one of the world’s most powerful investigation firms, sought out by the rich and famous to discretely handle their most intimate problems. Private’s investigators are the smartest, the fastest, and the most technologically advanced in the world—and they always uncover the truth. When a former lover is found murdered in Jack’s bed, he is instantly the number one suspect. While the police are investigating Jack, the mob strong-arms him into recovering $30 million in stolen pharmaceuticals, and the beautiful manager of a luxury hotel chain persuades him to quietly investigate a string of murders occurring at her properties. While Jack is fighting for his life, one of his most trusted colleagues threatens to leave Private, and Jack realizes he is confronting the cleverest and most powerful enemies yet. ●●

They’re an iconic part of history’s most celebrated birth. But what do we really know about the Three Kings of the Nativity, besides the fact that they followed a star to Bethlehem bearing strange gifts? The Bible has little to say about this enigmatic trio. But leave it to Seth Grahame-Smith, the brilliant and twisted mind behind Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, to take a little mystery, bend a little history, and weave an epic tale. In Grahame-Smith’s telling, the so-called “Three Wise Men” are infamous thieves, led by the dark, murderous Balthazar. After a daring escape from Herod’s prison, they stumble upon the famous manger and its newborn king. The last thing Balthazar needs is to be slowed down by young Joseph, Mary, and their infant. But when Herod’s men begin to slaughter the first born in Judea, he has no choice but to help them escape to Egypt. It’s the beginning of an adventure that will see them fight the last magical creatures of the Old Testament, cross paths with biblical figures like Pontius Pilate and John the Baptist, and finally deliver them to Egypt. It may just be the greatest story never told.

In hardcover, PRIVATE: #1 SUSPECT was a #1 New York Times bestseller and sold more than 445,000 copies. There are nearly two million copies in print of the hardcover, trade paperback, and mass market editions of Private (LB, 6/10), the first book in James Patterson’s newest series. It hit #1 on the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. Maxine Paetro is the author of three novels and two works of nonfiction. Including the bestselling Women’s Murder Club series, she has coauthored nine books with James Patterson. She lives in New York with her husband. Hardcover ISBN: 978-0-316-09740-6, 1/12

Inside Apple

Not Your Mother’s Rules

How America’s Most Admired—and Secretive—Company Really Works

The New Secrets for Dating

ADAM LASHINSKY

ELLEN FEIN AND SHERRIE SCHNEIDER

One of Silicon Valley’s leading journalists reveals the secret systems, tactics, and leadership strategies that have turned Apple into the largest tech company in the world.

The original Rules Girls are back with a new book geared toward a generation of women facing a high-tech, social media-oriented, non-dating dating world.

If Apple is Silicon Valley’s answer to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, then author Adam Lashinsky provides readers with a golden ticket to step inside. Based on numerous interviews with current and former employees, the book introduces readers to concepts like the “DRI” (Apple’s practice of assigning a Directly Responsible Individual to every task) and the Top 100 (a semi-annual ritual in which 100 up-and-coming executives are plucked for a secret off-site conference). While INSIDE APPLE is ostensibly a deep dive into one, unique company (and its ecosystem of suppliers, investors, employees, and competitors), the lessons about product design, marketing and surviving a leadership change are universal. ●●

Women looking for love today have it hard. With constant updating on social networking sites, the expectation that hook-ups are the norm, and the ability to be in touch with everyone at all times, it’s difficult to navigate dating—let alone retain the air of mystery that keeps men interested. NOT YOUR MOTHER’S RULES is a thoroughly modern, fresh take on The Rules that will help women in today’s new information age create the happy dating lives they deserve. With tips like “wait 24 hours to return a text and at least 30 minutes thereafter,” “don’t email anything you wouldn’t want a guy to have if you break up,” “rules for sexting,” and “rarely write on his wall,” this book will be revolutionary. Providing the dos and don’ts women need to date successfully in today’s increasingly textcrazy, sex-obsessed society, NOT YOUR MOTHER’S RULES will change the dating book market just as much as The Rules did in 1995!

INSIDE APPLE is reminiscent of Jim Collins’s blockbuster bestseller, Good to Great (Harper, 2001), which sold more than two million copies. Apple’s products and its late co-founder are famous around the globe, but little is known about what transpires inside Apple headquarters.

●●

INSIDE APPLE ‘s hardcover edition was both a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller. A Senior Editor at Large for Fortune magazine, Lashinsky covers technology and finance. He is a weekly panelist on the Fox News channel’s Cavuto on Business program and a frequent speaker and moderator.

Be the Miracle

TOM ROB SMITH

50 Lessons for Making the Impossible Possible REGINA BRETT

“Another first-class, must-read crime novel” (Booklist, starred review) from Tom Rob Smith, the New York Times bestselling, award-winning author of Child 44.

Regina Brett, author of the New York Times bestseller God Never Blinks, offers unforgettable stories about the decisions we make and how our choices can make the impossible possible.

Leo Demidov is no longer a member of Moscow’s secret police. But when his wife, Raisa, and daughters Zoya and Elena are invited on a “Peace Tour” to New York City, he is immediately suspicious. Forbidden to travel with his family and trapped on the other side of the world, Leo watches helplessly as events in New York unfold and those closest to his heart are pulled into a web of political conspiracy and betrayal—one that will end in tragedy. In the horrible aftermath, Leo takes matters into his own hands. It is a quest that will span decades, and take Leo around the world—from Moscow, to the mountains of Soviet-controlled Afghanistan, to the backstreets of New York—in pursuit of the one man who knows the truth: Agent 6. ●●

Who doesn’t want the world to change for the better? Who doesn’t want to see a miracle? What are we waiting for? Why not be the miracle? That’s the challenge Regina Brett sets forth in BE THE MIRACLE. To be a miracle doesn’t necessarily mean tackling problems across the globe. It means believing change is possible and making a difference, in your own living room, cubicle, neighborhood, or out in the world. Through inspirational essays, Brett shares lessons that will help people make positive changes in the world around them. These stories come from Brett’s life experiences and from the lives of others she has met in her years as a journalist. Each lesson stands alone, but together they form a handbook for seeing the miracle of change everywhere—and in everyone.

Now in this book, they’ve gotten high enough to tell you how to live your life, covering areas from party etiquette to problems in the workplace to religious intolerance to how to know whether or not your boyfriend/girlfriend/parent/friend/ teacher/pet is gay.

What do Howard Hughes and 50 Cent have in common, and what do they tell us about Americans and our desires? Why did Sean Connery stop wearing a toupee, and what does this tell us about American customers for any product? What one thing did the Beatles, Malcolm Gladwell and Nike all notice about Americans that helped them win us over? Which uniquely American traits may explain the plights of Krispy Kreme, Ford, and GM, and the risks faced by Starbucks? Why, after every other plea failed, did “Click It or Ticket” get people to finally start fastening their seat belts? To paraphrase Don Draper on the hit show Mad Men, “What do people want?” What is the new American psyche, and how do America’s shrewdest marketers tap it? Drawing from dozens of disciplines, the internationally acclaimed marketing expert Harry Beckwith answers these questions with some surprising, even startling, truths and discoveries about what motivates us. ●●

The Physique 57® Solution

LUCRETIA GRINDLE

The Groundbreaking 2-Week Plan for a Lean, Beautiful Body TANYA BECKER AND JENNIFER MAANAVI

A moving and powerful story about loyalty and betrayal, passion and compromises amid the Italian Resistance of WWII.

“Physique 57 has transformed my body in ways I never thought possible. My butt is higher and I love my thighs and arms. I just feel so strong.” —Kelly Ripa What if we could achieve our best body starting now? THE PHYSIQUE 57 SOLUTION, celebrity praised and widely loved, is designed to systematically sculpt muscles to create a lean, beautiful shape. This unique, effective workout combines interval training, isometric exercises, and orthopedic stretches to rapidly and dramatically transform the body. No matter what level of fitness, the Physique 57 technique will keep readers challenged, motivated, and entertained as they discover: • Step-by-step, groundbreaking workouts offering major calorie burn • Innovative choreography, including muscle-defining arm exercises, intense seat-and-thigh sequences, and waist-chiseling ab moves • A super-slimming two-week meal plan • And more!

Florence, 1943. Two sisters, Isabella and Caterina Cammaccio, find themselves surrounded by terror and death; and with Italy trapped under the heel of a brutal Nazi occupation, bands of Partisans rise up. Isabella and Caterina will have their wits and deepest beliefs tested as never before. As the winter grinds on, they will be forced to make the most important decisions of their lives. Their choices will reverberate for decades. In the present day, Alessandro Pallioti, a senior policeman agrees to oversee a murder investigation after it is revealed that the victim was once a Partisan hero. When the case begins to unravel, Pallioti finds himself working to uncover a crime lost in the twilight of war, the consequences of which are as deadly today as they were over 60 years ago. ●●

As evidenced by the success of such bestsellers as Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay (St. Martin’s Press, 2008) and Irène Némirovsky’s Suite Française (Vintage, 2007), novels that combine a mystery element with a WWII backdrop are strong sellers, particularly in trade paperback.

●●

Little has been written about the Italian Resistance movement, so this novel delivers an aspect of WWII history that is sure to generate tremendous interest. The breadth of the novel, which spans from WWII to the present, as well as its intricately interwoven plotlines, will appeal to the same audience that embraced The Forgotten Garden (Washington Square Press, 2010), which sold more than 271,000 paperback copies.

JAMES PATTERSON & MAXINE PAETRO

LEILA MEACHAM

Now in paperback, Detective Lindsay Boxer investigates the discovery of severed heads in a movie star’s garden—and a vigilante targeting the city’s most despised criminals.

From the bestselling author of Roses comes a compelling novel about one town’s passion for football and the love triangle between three of its brightest stars.

Millionaire Chaz Smith is mercilessly gunned down and Detective Lindsay Boxer discovers that the murder weapon is linked to the deaths of four of San Francisco’s most untouchable criminals. And it was taken from her department’s evidence locker. Anyone could be the killer—even her closest friends. Lindsay is then called to the most bizarre crime scene she’s ever seen: two bodiless heads elaborately displayed in the garden of a world-famous actor. Another head is unearthed in the garden, and Lindsay realizes that the ground could hide hundreds of victims. A reporter launches a series of vicious articles about the cases and Lindsay’s personal life is laid bare. But this time she has no one to turn to—especially not Joe. 11th HOUR is the most shocking, most emotional, and most thrilling Women’s Murder Club novel ever. ●●

Life with the World’s Biggest Dog DAVE NASSER WITH LYNNE BARRETT-LEE

“PURE is not just the most extraordinary coming-of-age novel I’ve ever read, it is also a beautiful and savage metaphorical assessment of how all of us live in this present age.”

The heartwarming story of one couple’s life with the “runt of the litter” puppy who grew to be the largest dog in the world.

—Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain

Pressia barely remembers the Detonations or much about life during the Before. In her sleeping cabinet behind the rubble of an old barbershop, she thinks about all that is lost to ash and dust. And now, at an age when everyone is required to turn themselves over to the militia to either be trained as soldiers or used as live targets, Pressia can no longer pretend to be small. Pressia is on the run. There are those who escaped the apocalypse unmarked. Pures. They are tucked safely inside the Dome that protects their healthy, superior bodies. Yet Partridge, whose father is one of the most influential men in the Dome, feels isolated and lonely. Different. He thinks about loss—maybe just because his family is broken. Or maybe it’s his claustrophobia. So when a slipped phrase suggests his mother might still be alive, Partridge risks his life to leave the Dome to find her.  When Pressia meets Partridge, their worlds shatter all over again…. ●●

With his big blue eyes and soulful expression, George was the irresistible runt of the litter. But Dave and Christie Nasser’s “baby” ended up being almost five feet tall, seven feet long, and 245 pounds. Eager to play, and boisterous to the point of causing chaos, this big Great Dane was scared of water, scared of dogs a fraction of his size and, most of all, scared of being alone. GIANT GEORGE is the charming story of how this precocious puppy won Dave and Christie’s heart and along the way became a doggie superstar. In 2010, George was named by Guinness World Records, the Tallest Dog in the World—ever. He appeared on Oprah, and even has his own global fan club. But to Dave and Christie, this extraordinary animal is still their beloved pet, the one who has made them laugh, made them cry, and continues to make them incredibly happy. ●●

The hardcover edition of PURE received rave reviews from bestselling authors, including Justin Cronin, Aimee Bender, Danielle Trussoni, Robert Olen Butler, William Giraldi, and Matt Bondurant.

The Healing Code

Psych’s Guide to Crime Fighting for the Totally Unqualified

6 Minutes to Heal the Source of Your Health, Success, or Relationship Issue ALEXANDER LOYD, PHD, ND, WITH BEN JOHNSON, MD, DO, NMD FOREWORD BY JORDAN RUBIN, PHD, NMD, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE MAKER’ S DIET

SHAWN SPENCER WITH BURTON GUSTER

“D r. Alex Loyd has the defining healing technology in the world today—it will revolutionize health.” —Mark Victor Hansen, co-author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books

From Psych—USA Network’s smash TV show about a police psychic—comes a hilarious guide to fighting crime.

Psych is a quick-witted comedy/drama starring James Roday as young police consultant Shawn Spencer who solves crimes with powers of observation so acute that Santa Barbara Police Department detectives think he’s psychic. Psych also stars Dulé Hill as Burton, Shawn’s best friend and reluctant sidekick, and Corbin Bernsen as his disapproving father, Henry, who ironically was the one who honed his son’s “observation” skills as a child. As with Monk, Psych mixes comedy with its crime and features a somewhat eccentric lead character— Shawn, a police psychic with absolutely no psychic abilities whatsoever. Now Shawn will share his expertise on crime fighting for the totally unqualified and, with Burton’s help, show readers how to prepare for a stakeout, how to profile suspects, solve cold cases, sneak snacks at a crime scene, and create masterful disguises from a $.99 store…all with the trademark Psych humor!

In 2001, Dr. Alexander Loyd discovered how to activate a physical function built into the body that removes the source of up to 95% of all illness and disease. The neuro-immune system can then do its job of healing whatever is wrong in the body. Dr. Loyd’s findings were validated by tests and by the thousands of people from all over the world who have used The Healing Code system to correct virtually any physical, emotional, or relational issue, as well as realize breakthroughs in career success. Loyd’s testing also revealed that there is a “Universal Healing Code” that can help cure most issues for most people. In this book, you learn that Universal Healing Code, which takes only minutes to do. The book also includes: • The Seven Secrets of life, health, and prosperity • The 10-second Instant Impact technique for defusing daily stress • The Heart Issues Finder, the only test that identifies your source issues in a succinct personalized report.

He speaks approximately 150 times a year and has been featured on television (including a PBS special) and radio programs.

Dolls Behaving Badly

Buy High, Sell Higher

CINTHIA RITCHIE

Why Buy-and-Hold Is Dead and Other Surprising Investing Lessons from CNBC’s “The Liquidator” JOE TERRANOVA

Where the Heart Is meets Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim in this hilarious and heartwarming debut novel about a single mom living in Alaska trying to make a life for herself and her son.

Whether you’re a professional investor (or just want to trade like one), this book will give you the techniques to pick winners, maximize gains, and minimize losses.

Carla Richards is a weary waitress at Anchorage’s premiere dining establishment; an aspiring artist who secretly makes erotic dolls for the extra income; a divorcée who can’t quite detach from her ex-husband; and a stressed-out single mom trying to support her gifted eight-year-old son Jay-Jay, her pregnant sister Laurel, and her babysitter-turned-residentteenager Stephanie. Surrounded by bills she can’t pay, Carla finds inspiration and hope in the form of the “Oprah Giant”—an unusually tall woman who directs Oprah’s viewers to commit their dreams to paper and pursue them every day. With this new outlook, Carla’s life begins filling with more potential and possibility than she ever dared to imagine. Still far from a perfect life, but perfection is overrated, and as long as she has her family, friends and her Polish grandmother’s traditional recipes, she has everything she needs to be happy.

Today’s markets move faster and have greater volatility than when buying low and selling high became the established path to wealth. In the past decade, tried-and-true strategies— relying on index funds or buying-and-holding stocks—have let investors down. In BUY HIGH, SELL HIGHER, Terranova explains how to use indicators, like moving averages and volume, to spot investments that are poised to take off. Using current examples and stories from his own career, the author explains how to determine the best time to buy, when to sell, how to protect against sudden reversals, and how to capitalize while others are retreating. For investors who are tired of watching their 401(k) melt down to a 201(k) (or if today’s markets have them scared to the point of inaction), this book will give them the tools to get in the game—and to profit in this new investing landscape. ●●

Delivering Happiness

You Came Back

A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose

A Novel

TONY HSIEH, CEO OF ZAPPOS

CHRISTOPHER COAKE

Now in paperback, the #1 New York Times bestseller from the iconoclastic CEO of Zappos that reveals how creating a company culture that values happiness can lead to unprecedented success.

Christopher Coake’s fictional examination of how one man deals with the death of his son— and the beauty and danger of belief in all forms—is now in paperback.

• Pay brand-new employees $2,000 to quit… • Make customer service the responsibility of the entire company… • Apply research from the science of happiness to running a business… • Seek to change the world…

Thirty-something Midwesterner Mark Fife believes he has successfully moved past the accidental death of his young son Brendan, as well as his subsequent divorce from his college sweetheart Chloe. Seven years have passed; he’s successful, he’s in love again, and he believes he’s mastered his own memories.  But then he is contacted by a strange woman who tells him not only that she owns his old house, but that she also believes it to be haunted by Brendan’s ghost.  Will Mark—who does not believe in ghosts—come to accept the mounting evidence that the spirit of Brendan is real? Will his engagement to his new love Allison be threatened by the reappearance of his exwife? If the ghost is real, what can these two wounded parents do to help their son? Centered on the impact of the accidental death of a small child, this anatomy of grief and redemption is reminiscent of the award-winning play turned feature film Rabbit Hole, starring Nicole Kidman, with supernatural elements that hint at the blockbuster film The Sixth Sense.

Oh, and make money too. Sound crazy? It’s all standard operating procedure at Zappos, the online retailer that’s doing over $1 billion in gross merchandise sales annually. After debuting as the highest-ranking newcomer in Fortune magazine’s annual “Best Companies to Work For” list in 2009, Zappos was acquired by Amazon in a deal valued at more than $1.2 billion on the day of closing. In DELIVERING HAPPINESS, Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh shares the different lessons he has learned in business and life. Fast-paced and down-to-earth, Hsieh shows how a very different kind of corporate culture is a powerful model for achieving success.

“When I finished the last page of Christopher Coake’s amazing new novel, I set the book down with a sense of wonder. This remarkable author is less concerned with the supernatural than with the all-too-too real specters that haunt us all—the ghosts of our former selves, the ghosts of the lives we might have lived had just a few things turned out differently. YOU CAME BACK will stay with me forever. What an incredible writer.”

Hsieh made his first million by age 18. Prior to joining Zappos in 2000, he co-founded LinkExchange, which he sold to Microsoft at age 24 for $250 million. Hsieh has been and remains actively involved in promoting this book.

“It is hard not to like a CEO who, without a trace of irony, says that his corporate mission has become ‘delivering happiness to the world.’” —The Wall Street Journal MARKETING

Christopher Coake’s acclaimed debut novel We’re In Trouble (Harcourt, 2005) was chosen for the PEN/Bingham Award in 2005, and he was subsequently named one of “Granta’s Best of Young American Novelists” in 2007. He received his M.F.A. in fiction from Ohio State University.

Rooted in Jackie’s principles of fitness, this plan offers a nutrient-rich, all-natural diet to jump-start metabolism and rev up the fat burning; exercises to tone and sculpt the body to perfection; and the encouragement to turn self-loathing into self-loving.

Readers will discover how to: •D  ROP POUNDS RAPIDLY: Three simple, 10-day eating plans and workouts—for a full 30 days of fat burning and toning. • EAT TO LOSE: Superstar foods help encourage fat loss, satisfy cravings, and recharge metabolism. • BURN FAT FAST: Specific high-intensity workouts to maximize burn and give ultimate tone in the fastest time possible. • K EEP THE WEIGHT OFF: The secret strategy for changing set points so the pounds stay off permanently.

Every time surgeons operate, they’re betting their skills can beat a brain tumor, a faulty heart valve, a clogged artery. Sometimes, they’re wrong. At Chelsea General, surgeons answer for bad outcomes at the Morbidity and Mortality conference, known as M & M. This extraordinary peek behind the curtain into what is considered the most secret meeting in all of medicine is the backdrop for Sanjay Gupta’s first novel. MONDAY MORNINGS follows the lives of five surgeons as they push the limits of their abilities and confront their personal and professional failings, often in front of their peers at M & M. A practicing surgeon himself, Gupta paints a vivid picture of the method by which surgeons often learn—through their mistakes.

In the isolated Cape Cod village of Prospect, the Gilly sisters are as different as can be.

Although the community halfsuspects the Gilly sisters might be witches, it doesn’t stop the town’s wealthiest bachelor from forcing his way into their lives. Years later, estranged from her family, Claire finds herself thrust back onto the farm with the last person she would have chosen: her husband’s pregnant mistress. Suddenly, alliances change, old loves return, and new battle lines are drawn. When the smoke finally clears, what the Gilly sisters learn about each other and the land around them will alter Gilly history for good. ●●

Lenny left his wife Monique a healthy legacy and a “bucket list” of things they’d dreamed of experiencing together before cancer took his life. For four years, his widow ignored the list, too busy raising their daughter to consider the painful task of resurrecting shattered dreams. But when Monique notices her earth-mother neighbor Judy acting crazy in her empty nest, and their best friend, Becky, slipping into depression after a shocking medical diagnosis, Monique dusts off that wish list and contemplates it with new eyes. Lenny never meant for her to have these experiences alone—and who knows, perhaps this list of adventures is just crazy enough to save them all. ●●

A pinch of A.D.D, Arrest, Violence, Rehab, Anti Depressants, Gangs, Guns. Shake, Stir, Pour. When he was a young boy, Moshe Kasher’s deaf mother took him on a vacation to the West Coast. Well, it was more like an abduction. She stole them away from their father and the Chassidic community he was being swept into and they moved to Oakland, California. That’s where the real fun begins, in the war zone of Oakland Public Schools. Moshe jokes his way down the ladder, but soon enough, he falls to the bottom. KASHER IN THE RYE is a snapshot of a childhood gone terribly wrong. This is a story of a young boy barely holding himself together with the world threatening to break him in two. It’s a hilarious and painful ode to the agony and absurdity of a life that almost ended before it started. ●●

He can also be seen in the upcoming FOX sitcom Traffic Lights. Kasher spent the last three years on the road, building his audience and performing almost nightly. He was named “best of the fest” by both the Aspen Comedy Festival and Just For Laughs, as well as iTunes 2009 New Comedian of the Year. Kasher has performed at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, the Sasquatch Music Festival, South by Southwest, Bamboozle Festival, The Cat Laughs Festival, Aspen Comedy Festival, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and hundreds of comedy clubs across the U.S. Hardcover ISBN: 978-0-446-58426-5, 3/12

“Hysterical, heartbreaking, flat-out hilarious…after KASHER IN THE RYE, Moshe Kasher will no longer be known just as a brilliant, cutting edge young comic, but as a genuine monster writer of the highest order. Think Holden Caulfield on dope and bagels, with a side of crime and insane asylums. This is the kind of book that makes you want to wake up everyone you know at three in the morning and scream at them to read.” —Jerry Stahl, MARKETING
