    Award–winning dancer, choreographer, and bestselling author Twyla Tharp shares her secrets for maintaining mental and physical agility in one’s senior years in this groundbreaking, always-entertaining book.Now seventy-three, Twyla Tharp is revered not only for the dances she creates—for Broadway, the American Ballet Theater, the New York City Ballet, and elsewhere—but for her astounding regime of exercise and engagement. She is famed for religiously hitting the gym each morning at daybreak, undergoing rigorous exercises with her trainer, and utilizing those drills to propel her breakneck schedule as a teacher, creator, and lecturer—and through it all looking and feeling like a woman decades younger than her calendar age.In Forwardness, Tharp explores the variety of steps anyone can take to forestall the aging process and, more importantly, convince one’s own mind that it is truly only as old as it feels. Drawing on a variety of physical techniques, mental acuity exercises, and spiritual tricks of the psyche, Forwardness will prove to be as innovative and novel as its creator.

    From Jenny Johnson, Los Angeles–based comedy and television writer and one of the funniest women on Twitter, comes a collection of humorous essays in the bestselling vein of Kelly Oxford, Laurie Notaro, and Sarah Colonna centered around her immature reactions in the face of very adult situations.A self-proclaimed “writer, proud Texan, asshole, and owner of two dogs,” Jenny Johnson was first discovered through her hilarious takedowns of celebrity and popular culture on Twitter. Her highly publicized and very hilarious online war with Chris Brown garnered her nationwide media attention and many virtual high-fives (and even forced Mr. HotHead to delete his Twitter account). Best of all, being funny on Twitter got the attention of Hollywood, and Jenny Johnson is now a highly sought-after comedy writer for television. In her first book, Immature Adult, Johnson tells tales of her upbringing in Texas with a mother whose anxiety was nearly as high as her hair and a father who was the first to laugh at her jokes. From accidentally landing in an AA meeting in a church basement and sticking around for the spectacle to taking her mom on the holiday house tour of Dallas (and trying mightily to keep from rolling her eyes out of her head) to her uncomfortable position as stepmom to two children when she never ever wanted a kid of her own. Jenny is a perpetual surly teenager in a grown-up’s body—an immature adult.Written with brutal honesty and an eye for the absurdity of modern life on and off the Internet, this is a book for anyone who has ever wanted to say “I know you are, but what am I?” to your boss. No one gets off scot-free in this hilarious collection, least of all Jenny Johnson.

Then Rafe is forced to work on a class project side by side with his crush Jeannie Galletta and her too perfect boyfriend, which might be even more torture than rooming with Miller.

    In this shocking, hard-hitting exposé in the tradition of Naomi Klein and Barbara Ehrenreich, the editorial director of Feministing.com reveals how gender bias affects every level of medicine and health care today—leading to inadequate, inappropriate, and even dangerous treatment that threatens women’s lives and well-being.Modern medicine is failing women. Half of all American women suffer from at least one chronic health condition, from autoimmune disorders and asthma to depression and Alzheimer’s disease—and the numbers are increasing. A wealth of research has revealed that women often exhibit different symptoms than their male counterparts, suffer disproportionately from many debilitating conditions, and may react differently to prescription drugs and other therapies. Yet more than twenty years after the law decreed that women be included in all health-related research and drug development, doctors are still operating with a lingering knowledge gap when it comes to women’s health. They’re not immune to unconscious biases and stereotypes that can undermine the doctor-patient relationship. The consequences can be catastrophic. Too often, women are misdiagnosed and poorly treated and find their complaints dismissed as “just stress” or “all in your head.” Meanwhile, they are getting sicker. Maya Dusenbery brings together scientific and sociological research, interviews with experts within and outside the medical establishment, and personal stories from women to provide the first comprehensive, accessible look at how sexism in medicine harms women today. In addition to offering a clear-eyed explanation of the root causes of this insidious and entrenched bias and laying out its effects, she suggests concrete steps we can take to overcome it. Eye-opening and long-overdue, Doing Harm is an empowering call to action for health-care providers and all women.

    Marion “Suge” Knight was once the most powerful man in the music industry. He was also the most reviled, and in some cases, the most feared. Legendary for the staggering success of his Death Row Records in the 1990s, the label that dominated the charts starting with the release of Dr. Dre’s groundbreaking The Chronic, and created megastars out of Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg, Knight was perhaps more well known for his violent tendencies.Before he was Suge Knight, he was Sugar Bear, the hulking football and track star, the child of Compton, raised tough, who was taught never to steal, only to take. His father, his uncles, and then Suge ruled the streets of Compton. No fear, no remorse, no pity … that was the family way. In a memoir organized around 100 fights of Suge’s life, and written in the style that only a writer with the skill of Neil Strauss could deliver, Your Pain is My Joy will be a searing tale of money, drugs, violence, gangs, and hip hop.In Your Pain is My Joy, Suge finally speaks openly about the murders of Tupac and Biggie, his legendary beefs with Diddy and Snoop Dogg, the high stakes battleground that was Death Row Records, and what it was like when all he worked for was gone. Is Suge sorry? Does he have regret? You be the judge.

    This isn’t your America. No matter who the president is.We’re told that when we vote, when we elect representatives, we’re gaining a voice in government and the policies it implements. Then why don’t American politics, unlike those of its European counterparts, actually translate our preferences into higher living standards for the majority of us?The answer is that, in America, the wealthy few have built a system that works in their favor and one which maintains the illusion of democracy. The reality is that the quality of democracy in the US is the lowest of all rich democracies in the world.In the US, voters have little influence on eventual policy outcomes, especially when compared to peer democracies overseas. Our economy has been misfiring for most Americans for a generation, with wages stagnating and opportunity dwindling. The income bias engineered into politics by the Supreme Court in 1976 has American lawmakers competing to satisfy the preferences of donors from the top one percent, and the gridlock engineered into American government by the Founding Fathers has made it easy.In Billionaire Democracy: The Hijacking of the American Political System, economist George R. Tyler lays out the fundamental problems plaguing our democracy. He explains how the American democratic system is rigged and how it has eroded the middle class, providing an unflinching and honest comparison of the US government to peer democracies abroad and breaking down where we fall short. Tyler outlines practical, immediate campaign-finance reforms to improve the political responsiveness of our government.The income bias and Congressional gridlock mean the decades to come will differ little from the past decades of dwindling economic opportunity for most Americans. The only realistic pathway to improve middle-class economics is to raise the quality of American democracy. Reform faces formidable barriers that can only be overcome by a visionary Supreme Court willing to change the rules of American politics. It’s time for the people of this nation to demand a government that properly serves us—the way any real democracy should.

    The followup to Prodigy’s critically acclaimed My Infamous Life, detailing the legal squabbles and hurdles endured following his prison sentenceIn 2011 famed rapper Albert “Prodigy” Johnson released his memoir, My Infamous Life—his journey from his time as a member of legendary rap duo Mobb Deep to his three-and-a-half year prison sentence. However, the real story began once he was released.As discussed in his previous memoir, the NYPD hip-hop task force played a major role in Prodigy’s arrest. Their presence remained, even following his time served. Prodigy didn’t help the cause, finding himself in a series of situations that were partly avoidable, partly inevitable. They say hindsight is 20/20, and The State vs. Albert “Prodigy” Johnson is full of retrospective tales. Fans of Prodigy’s rap legacy will enjoy the stories his followup memoir details, but true-crime fans unfamiliar with his music will also be intrigued by what Prodigy has in store in this nonstop ride through life in the fast lane.

    Investigative journalist Peter Stone gives us an inside look into the elite world of superrich conservative patrons. The Billionaires’ Club explores how a handful of powerful men, some well-known and others hidden from public view, became crucial financiers of the GOP shadow party, facilitated the rise of the Tea Party, and responded to the 2012 election with a reinvigorated plan to continue their crusade to slash government regulations and taxes.Stone combines in-depth investigative reporting with history and biography to tell the inside story of how an elite group of billionaires—men with big personalities and even bigger wallets—have helped shape the modern Right and influenced the GOP. Centered on larger-than-life figures—such as casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, industrialists Charles and David Koch, Texas home builder Bob Perry, and hedge fund CEO Paul Singer, to name a few—The Billionaires’ Club reveals their significant influence in Republican policy-making circles and their close ties to powerful GOP figures like Karl Rove, Newt Gingrich, Eric Cantor, and Paul Ryan.The Billionaires’ Club breaks new ground and exposes the ways in which the Right’s financial godfathers have opened their wallets wide to create a “shadow GOP” of super PACs and dark money outfits that spent hundreds of millions in the last two elections and have spearheaded drives against Obamacare and for looser Wall Street and environmental regulations. Stone offers a deep analysis of how campaign finance regulation from the McCain-Feingold Act to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling has collectively made it easier—not more difficult—for billionaires to give limitless sums, both publicly and secretly, to outside groups backing GOP candidates who champion policies that often dovetail with their business interests.With President Obama in the White House and the Senate potentially up for grabs in 2014, it is unlikely that the recent surge of funds from the Right’s leading billionaires will slow down anytime soon. The conservative crusade to drastically reduce government by slashing regulations and taxes is going to be with us for some time to come, posing a real threat to those who care about improving the quality of the environment, health care, and financial stability in this country. Regardless of what happens in the next elections, the shadow GOP has charted a course to build permanent lobbying and electoral machines that will be potent players for years to come in Washington and in the states.
