BOOK EXCERPT:

The dean of Columbia University's medical school explains why our bodies are out of sync with today's environment and how we can correct this to save our health. Over the past 200 years, human life-expectancy has approximately doubled. Yet we face soaring worldwide rates of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, mental illness, heart disease, and stroke. In his fascinating new book, Dr. Lee Goldman presents a radical explanation: The key protective traits that once ensured our species' survival are now the leading global causes of illness and death. Our capacity to store food, for example, lures us into overeating, and a clotting system designed to protect us from bleeding to death now directly contributes to heart attacks and strokes. A deeply compelling narrative that puts a new spin on evolutionary biology, Too Much of a Good Thing also provides a roadmap for getting back in sync with the modern world.

BOOK EXCERPT:

With his current effort, Dr. Roberts asks readers if they may be getting "Too Much of a Good Thing" regarding their smartphone use. This is no hoity-toity treatise but a fun and humorous look at our attachment (addiction?) to our smart phones. In chapter two you can respond to 12 short statements and see for yourself. Are you addicted to your smart phone? And, if you are, "What's the big deal?" In chapter three, experts tell us whether we can actually be addicted to our smart phones. The act of phubbing (phone snubbing) and its impact on your relationships is broached in chapters 4-6. But the fun doesn't stop there. Chapter seven offers a crash course on smart phone etiquette while chapter eight shares some interesting (and often sobering) facts about driving while distracted. Chapter nine debunks the four myths about multitasking and how our phones may undermine our productivity at school and work. Finally, he offers some easy solutions to all this telephony. Smart Phone Smack Down is all about carving out some time away from your smart phone so you can explore all the wonders available off-line if you just take a few minutes to power down. This is a life changing book and a journey that Dr. Roberts looks forward to sharing with you. So, put your smart phone on "airplane mode" and let's get started. Bonus chapter! Already a classic, the 2017 updated edition of "Smartphone Love affair" contains a new chapter on our Commander-in-Chief's Twitter habits. Is president Donald J. Trump addicted to Twitter? Are you addicted to Twitter? Read this exciting "Bonus Chapter" to find out.

BOOK EXCERPT:

"Hormegeddon" is the term coined by entrepreneur and New York Times Bestselling Author Bill Bonner to describe what happens when you get too much of a good thing in the sphere of public policy, economics and business. Simply put, it ends in disaster. Drawing on stories and examples from throughout modern political history-from Napoleon's invasion of Russia to the impending collapse of the American healthcare system, from the outbreak of WWII and the fall of the Third Reich to the 21st century War on Terror, from the Great Recession to the sovereign debt crisis-Bonner pursues a modest ambition: to understand what goes wrong. History is not a clean yarn spun by its victors. It is a long tale of things that went FUBAR-debacles, disasters, and catastrophes. That each disaster carries with it a warning is what makes it useful to study. For instance, if the architect of a great ship tells you that 'not even God himself could sink this ship, ' you should take the next boat. If the stock market is selling at 20 times earnings and all the expert analysts urge you to 'get in' because you 'can't lose'-it's time to get out! Similarly, public policy disasters are what you get when well meaning people with this same Titanic degree of certitude apply rational, small-scale problem-solving logic to inappropriately large scale planning. First, you get a declining rate of return on your investment (of time or resources) until you hit zero. Then, if you keep going through the zero floor-and you always keep going-you get a disaster. The problem is, these disasters cannot be stopped by well-informed smart people with good intentions, because they are the people who cause them in the first place. From the mind of Bill Bonner comes Hormegeddon, a phenomenon that occurs when a small dose of something produces a favorable result, but if you increase the dosage, the results end in disaster. The same applies when the world gets too much of a good thing in public policy, economics, and business. Drawing on examples throughout modern political history, Bonner brings context and understanding to this largely ignored and anonymous phenomenon.

It has always been Charlotte and James against the world. But what are they supposed to do when the world is always working against them?Charlotte Murphy and James Ramsey have been best friends since the first day of kindergarten. They take on everything in life together, dancing around their budding feelings along the way, playing tag but never quite getting there. After moving from their home in Massachusetts across the country to Los Angeles, James has finally settled into a relationship and a stable place in life, leaving Charlotte to wonder where she truly belongs. Charlotte grapples with her purpose in life, trying to balance being a kindergarten teacher during the school year who spends her summers in an office to pay the bills, with being an adult in the real world. When her office job finds her in the writer's room of a television show on her summer vacation, she takes hold of her newly found independence and starts to make changes, penning the children's book that she's always wanted to write, and forming new relationships along the way. Her newly found independence sparks a fire in James that has old feelings coming head to head with all of the new in both of their lives: significant others, jobs, and the potential to see what life would really be like if they finally spoke their truths. Are the best things in life really too good to be true?
