<b>“Warms my soul… such a joy to read… like a breath of fresh air.” Jaffa Reads Too</b><br /><br /><h2>Meet Phoebe, who’s 28, and Laney, Dot and Maggie, who are 68, 78, and none of your business.</h2><br /><b>Together they'll prove that age doesn’t matter when it comes to friendship, togetherness and an unquenchable zest for life.</b><br /><br />The residents of the Happy Home for Ladies have a big problem. Terrence, the owner’s mean-spirited father, is about to move into their famously all-female senior living home. Far from coasting into their twilight years, these women have a lot of living to do. And they’re planning to do it where the toilet seats stay firmly <i>down</i>.<br /><br />The home’s chef, Phoebe, is desperate to help her friends plot to keep the all-women community that means so much to them. It’s become her life raft, too. Her job might be the only thing that finally makes her parents proud. If only Phoebe’s (probably hopeless) love, Nick, wasn’t lining up on the other side of the battle. <br /><br />The stakes couldn’t be higher for everyone. Unless the home’s owner can improve business by moving men in, he’s going to close it down. Then the women will lose everything. <br /><br /><b>Meet your new best friends in this gorgeous, uplifting and hilarious new romantic comedy with all the camaraderie of <i>The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel</i> and life-affirming joy of <i>The Rosie Project</i>.

Just Released: Also by this author: THE DIET HACK: Why 95% of Diets Fail and How You Can Succeed!<br /><br />The potato hack was modeled after an 1849 diet plan for people that were becoming fat and “dyspeptic” from living too luxuriously. This potato diet simply called for one to eat nothing but potatoes for a few days at a time, promising that fat men become as “lean as they ought to be.” One hundred and sixty-seven years later, we are fatter and sicker than ever, but the potato diet still works. Potatoes contains natural drug-like agents that affect inflammation, hunger, insulin, sleep, dreams, mood, and body weight. The potato is the best diet pill ever invented.<br /><br />The potato hack is a short-term intervention (3-5 days) where one eats nothing but potatoes. This short mono-food experiment will strengthen your immune system and provide you with all of the nutrition you need to remain energetic, sleep great, and, as a side-effect, lose weight. The potato hack will help you develop a new relationship with food, hunger, taste, and yourself. <br /><br />The potato hack is not just for the overweight. As noted in 1849, anyone with digestive complaints who follows an all-potato diet for a few days at a time will find their digestion improves greatly. Modern science shows that simple diets high in fiber create an intestinal microbiome that is highly diverse and stable. This diversity and stability is lacking in most people and leads to digestive complaints like Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and Small intestinal bacterial overgrowths (SIBO). The "modern dyspeptic gut" affects millions of people and costs billions of dollars annually. The answer might be as simple as 3-5 days of potatoes. <br /><br />You don't need this book to do the potato hack. Just eat potatoes until full every day for 3-5 days. It really is that simple! This book explains the science behind the potato hack, some variations on the basic hack, recipes, and what to do if it does not work as advertised. Also found in The Potato Hack is a comprehensive review of resistant starch, gut health, potato history, and a growing guide for those that want to grow their own. <br /><br />Most of the photography throughout the book was done by award-winning photographer, Ann Overhulse. The artfully photographed potatoes found on the cover and on 30 pages within are well worth the full price of the book. Guaranteed that after reading The Potato Hack, you will never look at potatoes the same.

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • A <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> NOTABLE BOOK</b><br />  <br /> A modern classic of personal journalism, <i>The Orchid Thief</i> is Susan Orlean’s wickedly funny, elegant, and captivating tale of an amazing obsession. Determined to clone an endangered flower—the rare ghost orchid <i>Polyrrhiza lindenii—</i>a deeply eccentric and oddly attractive man named John Laroche leads Orlean on an unforgettable tour of America’s strange flower-selling subculture, through Florida’s swamps and beyond, along with the Seminoles who help him and the forces of justice who fight him. In the end, Orlean—and the reader—will have more respect for underdog determination and a powerful new definition of passion.<br />  <br /> In this new edition, coming fifteen years after its initial publication and twenty years after she first met the “orchid thief,” Orlean revisits this unforgettable world, and the route by which it was brought to the screen in the film <i>Adaptation,</i> in a new retrospective essay.<br /><br /><b>Look for special features inside. Join the Random House Reader’s Circle for author chats and more.</b><br />  <br /> <b>Praise for <i>The Orchid Thief</i></b><br /> <b><i> </i></b><br /> “Stylishly written, whimsical yet sophisticated, quirkily detailed and full of empathy . . . <i>The Orchid Thief</i> shows [Orlean’s] gifts in full bloom.”<b>—<i>The New York Times Book Review </i></b><br />  <br /> “Fascinating . . . an engrossing journey [full] of theft, hatred, greed, jealousy, madness, and backstabbing.”<b>—<i>Los Angeles Times</i></b><br /> <b> </b><br /> “Orlean’s snapshot-vivid, pitch-perfect prose . . . is fast becoming one of our national treasures.”<b>—<i>The Washington Post Book World</i></b><br /> <i> </i><br /> “Orlean’s gifts [are] her ear for the self-skewing dialogue, her eye for the incongruous, convincing detail, and her Didion-like deftness in description.”<b>—<i>Boston Sunday Globe</i></b><br />  <br /> “A swashbuckling piece of reporting that celebrates some virtues that made America great.”<b>—<i>The Wall Street Journal</i></b>
