<b>Now being developed as a television series with Eva Longoria and ABC!</b><br /><br /><b>"An irresistibly addictive tour of the human condition."--Kirkus, <i>starred review</i></b><br /><br /><b>"Rarely have I read a book that challenged me to see myself in an entirely new light, and was at the same time laugh-out-loud funny and utterly absorbing."--Katie Couric</b><br /><br /><b>"This is a daring, delightful, and transformative book."--Arianna Huffington, Founder, <i>Huffington Post</i> and Founder & CEO, Thrive Global</b><br /><br /><b>"Wise, warm, smart, and funny. You must read this book."--Susan Cain, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Quiet</i></b><br /><br /><b>From a <i>New York Times</i> best-selling author, psychotherapist, and national advice columnist, a hilarious, thought-provoking, and surprising new book that takes us behind the scenes of a therapist's world--where her patients are looking for answers (and so is she).</b><br /><br />One day, Lori Gottlieb is a therapist who helps patients in her Los Angeles practice. The next, a crisis causes her world to come crashing down. Enter Wendell, the quirky but seasoned therapist in whose of­fice she suddenly lands. With his balding head, cardigan, and khakis, he seems to have come straight from Therapist Central Casting. Yet he will turn out to be anything but.<br /><br />As Gottlieb explores the inner chambers of her patients' lives -- a self-absorbed Hollywood producer, a young newlywed diagnosed with a terminal illness, a senior citizen threatening to end her life on her birthday if nothing gets better, and a twenty-something who can't stop hooking up with the wrong guys -- she finds that the questions they are struggling with are the very ones she is now bringing to Wendell.<br /><br />With startling wisdom and humor, Gottlieb invites us into her world as both clinician and patient, examining the truths and fictions we tell ourselves and others as we teeter on the tightrope between love and desire, meaning and mortality, guilt and redemption, terror and courage, hope and change.<br /><br /><i>Maybe You Should Talk to Someone</i> is rev­olutionary in its candor, offering a deeply per­sonal yet universal tour of our hearts and minds and providing the rarest of gifts: a boldly reveal­ing portrait of what it means to be human, and a disarmingly funny and illuminating account of our own mysterious lives and our power to transform them.

<b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • The funny, sad, super-honest, all-true story of Chelsea Handler’s year of self-discovery—featuring a nerdily brilliant psychiatrist, a shaman, four Chow Chows, some well-placed security cameras, various family members (living and departed), friends, assistants, and a lot of edibles</b><br /><br /><b>A SKIMM READS PICK • “This will be one of your favorite books of all time.”—Amy Schumer</b><br /><br />In a haze of vape smoke on a rare windy night in L.A. in the fall of 2016, Chelsea Handler daydreams about what life will be like with a woman in the White House. And then Donald Trump happens. In a torpor of despair, she decides that she’s had enough of the privileged bubble she’s lived in—a bubble within a bubble—and that it’s time to make some changes, both in her personal life and in the world at large.<br /><br />At home, she embarks on a year of self-sufficiency—learning how to work the remote, how to pick up dog shit, where to find the toaster. She meets her match in an earnest, brainy psychiatrist and enters into therapy, prepared to do the heavy lifting required to look within and make sense of a childhood marked by love and loss and to figure out why people are afraid of her. She becomes politically active—finding her voice as an advocate for change, having difficult conversations, and energizing her base. In the process, she develops a healthy fixation on Special Counsel Robert Mueller and, through unflinching self-reflection and psychological excavation, unearths some glittering truths that light up the road ahead. <br /><br />Thrillingly honest, insightful, and deeply, darkly funny, Chelsea Handler’s memoir keeps readers laughing, even as it inspires us to look within and ask ourselves what really matters in our own lives.<br /><br /><b>Advance praise for </b><i><b>Life Will Be the Death of Me</b></i><br /><br />“You thought you knew Chelsea Handler—and she thought she knew herself—but in her new book, she discovers that true progress lies in the direction we haven’t been.”<b>—Gloria Steinem </b><br /><br /> “I always wondered what it would be like to watch Chelsea Handler in session with her therapist. Now I know.”<b>—Ellen DeGeneres</b><br /><br /> “I love this book not just because it made me laugh or because I learned that I feel the same way about certain people in politics as Chelsea does. I love this book because I feel like I finally really got to know Chelsea Handler after all these years. Thank you for sharing, Chelsea!”<b>—Tiffany Haddish</b>

<p>From the author of the <em>New York Times</em> bestseller <em>The Plant Paradox</em> comes a groundbreaking plan for living a long, healthy, happy life.<br /><br />From the moment we are born, our cells begin to age. But aging does not have to mean decline. World-renowned surgeon Dr. Steven Gundry has been treating mature patients for most of his career. He knows that everyone thinks they want to live forever, until they hit middle age and witness the suffering of their parents and even their peers. So how do we solve the paradox of wanting to live to a ripe old age—but enjoy the benefits of youth?</p><p>This groundbreaking book holds the answer. Working with thousands of patients, Dr. Gundry has discovered that the “diseases of aging” we most fear are not simply a function of age; rather, they are a byproduct of the way we have lived over the decades. In <em>The Longevity Paradox</em>, he maps out a new approach to aging well—one that is based on supporting the health of the “oldest” parts of us: the microorganisms that live within our bodies.</p><p>Our gut bugs—the bacteria that make up the microbiome—largely determine our health over the years. From diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s to common ailments like arthritis to our weight and the appearance of our skin, these bugs are in the driver’s seat, controlling our quality of life as we age.</p><p><p>The good news is, it’s never too late to support these microbes and give them what they need to help them—and you—thrive. In <em>The Longevity Paradox</em>, Dr. Gundry outlines a nutrition and lifestyle plan to support gut health and live well for decades to come. A progressive take on the new science of aging, <em>The Longevity Paradox</em> offers an action plan to prevent and reverse disease as well as simple hacks to help anyone look and feel younger and more vital.</p><p></p>

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • As a young mother facing a terminal diagnosis, Julie Yip-Williams began to write her story, a story like no other. What began as the chronicle of an imminent and early death became something much more—a powerful exhortation to the living.</b><br /><b><br />“An exquisitely moving portrait of the daily stuff of life.”—<i>The New York Times Book Review </i><b>(Editors’ Choice)</b></b><br /><br /> That Julie Yip-Williams survived infancy was a miracle. Born blind in Vietnam, she narrowly escaped euthanasia at the hands of her grandmother, only to flee with her family the political upheaval of her country in the late 1970s. Loaded into a rickety boat with three hundred other refugees, Julie made it to Hong Kong and, ultimately, America, where a surgeon at UCLA gave her partial sight. She would go on to become a Harvard-educated lawyer, with a husband, a family, and a life she had once assumed would be impossible. Then, at age thirty-seven, with two little girls at home, Julie was diagnosed with terminal metastatic colon cancer, and a different journey began.<br /><br /> <i>The Unwinding of the Miracle</i> is the story of a vigorous life refracted through the prism of imminent death. When she was first diagnosed, Julie Yip-Williams sought clarity and guidance through the experience and, finding none, began to write her way through it—a chronicle that grew beyond her imagining. Motherhood, marriage, the immigrant experience, ambition, love, wanderlust, tennis, fortune-tellers, grief, reincarnation, jealousy, comfort, pain, the marvel of the body in full rebellion—this book is as sprawling and majestic as the life it records. It is inspiring and instructive, delightful and shattering. It is a book of indelible moments, seared deep—an incomparable guide to living vividly by facing hard truths consciously.<br /><br /> With humor, bracing honesty, and the cleansing power of well-deployed anger, Julie Yip-Williams set the stage for her lasting legacy and one final miracle: the story of her life.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>The Unwinding of the Miracle</i></b><br /><br /> “Everything worth understanding and holding on to is in this book. . . . A miracle indeed.”<b>—Kelly Corrigan, <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author</b><br /><br />“A beautifully written, moving, and compassionate chronicle that deserves to be read and absorbed widely.”<b>—Siddhartha Mukherjee, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of <i>The Emperor of All Maladies</i></b>
