<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.

<p><strong>#1 <em>New York Times</em> Bestseller</strong></p><p><strong>Over 1 million copies sold</strong></p><p>In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.</p><p>For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. <em>The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k</em> is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up. </p><p>Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek. </p><p>There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, <em>The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k</em> is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.</p>

<p><strong>From the author of the international mega-bestseller <em>The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck</em> comes a counterintuitive guide to the problems of hope. <br /></strong><br />We live in an interesting time. Materially, everything is the best it’s ever been—we are freer, healthier and wealthier than any people in human history. Yet, somehow everything seems to be irreparably and horribly f*cked—the planet is warming, governments are failing, economies are collapsing, and everyone is perpetually offended on Twitter. At this moment in history, when we have access to technology, education and communication our ancestors couldn’t even dream of, so many of us come back to an overriding feeling of hopelessness. </p><p>What’s going on? If anyone can put a name to our current malaise and help fix it, it’s Mark Manson. In 2016, Manson published <em>The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck</em>, a book that brilliantly gave shape to the ever-present, low-level hum of anxiety that permeates modern living. He showed us that technology had made it too easy to care about the wrong things, that our culture had convinced us that the world owed us something when it didn’t—and worst of all, that our modern and maddening urge to always find happiness only served to make us unhappier. Instead, the “subtle art” of that title turned out to be a bold challenge: to choose your struggle; to narrow and focus and find the pain you want to sustain. The result was a book that became an international phenomenon, selling millions of copies worldwide while becoming the #1 bestseller in 13 different countries. </p><p>Now, in <em>Everthing Is F*cked</em>, Manson turns his gaze from the inevitable flaws within each individual self to the endless calamities taking place in the world around us. Drawing from the pool of psychological research on these topics, as well as the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato, Nietzsche, and Tom Waits, he dissects religion and politics and the uncomfortable ways they have come to resemble one another. He looks at our relationships with money, entertainment and the internet, and how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive. He openly defies our definitions of faith, happiness, freedom—and even of hope itself. </p><p>With his usual mix of erudition and where-the-f*ck-did-that-come-from humor, Manson takes us by the collar and challenges us to be more honest with ourselves and connected with the world in ways we probably haven’t considered before. It’s another counterintuitive romp through the pain in our hearts and the stress of our soul. One of the great modern writers has produced another book that will set the agenda for years to come. </p>

<b><b>From the creator of </b><b><i>Dilbert</i></b><b> and author of </b><b><i>Win Bigly</i></b><b>, a guide to spotting and avoiding loserthink: sneaky mental habits trapping victims in their own bubbles of reality. </b></b><br /><br />If you've been on social media lately, or turned on your TV, you may have noticed a lot of dumb ideas floating around.<br /><br />"We know when history will repeat and when it won't."<br />"We can tell the difference between evidence and coincidences."<br />"The simplest explanation is usually true."<br /><br />Wrong, wrong, and dangerous!<br /><br />If we're not careful, loserthink would have us believe that every Trump supporter is a bigoted racist, addicts should be responsible for fixing the opioid epidemic, and that your relationship fell apart simply because you chewed with your mouth open.<br /><br />Even the smartest people can slip into loserthink's seductive grasp. This book will teach you how to spot and avoid it--and will give you scripts to respond when hollow arguments are being brandished against you, whether by well-intentioned friends, strangers on the internet, or political pundits. You'll also learn how to spot the underlying causes of loserthink, like the inability to get ego out of your decisions, thinking with words instead of reasons, failing to imagine alternative explanations, and making too much of coincidences.<br /><br />Your bubble of reality doesn't have to be a prison. This book will show you how to break free--and, what's more, to be among the most perceptive and respected thinkers in every conversation.

<b>Tim Ferriss, the #1 <i>New York Times</i> best-selling author of <i>The 4-Hour Workweek</i>, shares the ultimate choose-your-own-adventure book—a compilation of tools, tactics, and habits from 130+ of the world's top performers. From iconic entrepreneurs to elite athletes, from artists to billionaire investors, their short profiles can help you answer life's most challenging questions, achieve extraordinary results, and transform your life.</b><br /><br /><b>From the author:</b><br /><br /> In 2017, several of my close friends died in rapid succession. It was a very hard year, as it was for many people.<br /><br /> It was also a stark reminder that time is our scarcest, non-renewable resource.<br /><br /> With a renewed sense of urgency, I began asking myself many questions:<br /><br /> Were my goals my own, or simply what I thought I should want?<br /> How much of life had I missed from underplanning or overplanning?<br /> How could I be kinder to myself?<br /> How could I better say “no” to the trivial many to better say “yes” to the critical few?<br /> How could I best reassess my priorities and my purpose in this world?<br /><br /> To find answers, I reached out to the most impressive world-class performers in the world, ranging from wunderkinds in their 20s to icons in their 70s and 80s. No stone was left unturned.<br /><br /> This book contains their answers—practical and tactical advice from mentors who have found solutions. Whether you want to 10x your results, get unstuck, or reinvent yourself, someone else has traveled a similar path and taken notes.<br /><br /> This book, <i>Tribe of Mentors</i>, includes many of the people I grew up viewing as idols or demi-gods. Less than 10% have been on my podcast (<i>The Tim Ferriss Show</i>, more than 200 million downloads), making this a brand-new playbook of playbooks.<br /><br /> No matter your challenge or opportunity, something in these pages can help.<br /><br /> Among other things, you will learn:<br /><br /> • More than 50 morning routines—both for the early riser and those who struggle to get out of bed.<br /> • How TED curator Chris Anderson realized that the best way to get things done is to let go.<br /> • The best purchases of $100 or less (you'll never have to think about the right gift again).<br /> • How to overcome failure and bounce back towards success.<br /> • Why Humans of New York creator Brandon Stanton believes that the best art will always be the riskiest.<br /> • How to meditate and be more mindful (and not just for those that find it easy).<br /> • Why tennis champion Maria Sharapova believe that “losing makes you think in ways victories can’t.”<br /> • How to truly achieve work-life balance (and why most people tell you it isn’t realistic).<br /> • How billionaire Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz transformed the way he engages with difficult situations to reduce suffering.<br /> • Ways to thrive (and survive) the overwhelming amount of information you process every day.<br /> • How to achieve clarity on your purpose and assess your priorities.<br /> • And much more.<br /><br /> This reference book, which I wrote for myself, has already changed my life. I certainly hope the same for you.<br /><br /> I wish you luck as you forge your own path.<br /><br /> All the best,<br /><br /> Tim Ferriss

<b>The face of autism is changing. And more often than we realize, that face is wearing lipstick.</b><br /><br /><i><b>Autism in Heels</b></i>, an intimate memoir, reveals the woman inside one of autism’s most prominent figures, Jennifer O'Toole. At the age of thirty-five, Jennifer was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, and for the first time in her life, things made sense. Now, Jennifer exposes the constant struggle between carefully crafted persona and authentic existence, editing the autism script with wit, candor, passion, and power. Her journey is one of reverse-self-discovery not only as an Aspie but--more importantly--as a thoroughly modern woman.<br /><br />Beyond being a memoir, <i><b>Autism in Heels</b></i> is a love letter to all women. It’s a conversation starter. A game changer. And a firsthand account of what it is to walk in Jennifer's shoes (especially those iconic red stilettos).<br /><br />Whether it's bad perms or body image, sexuality or self-esteem, Jennifer's is as much a human journey as one on the spectrum. Because autism "looks a bit different in pink," most girls and women who fit the profile are not identified, facing years of avoidable anxiety, eating disorders, volatile relationships, self-harm, and stunted independence. Jennifer has been there, too. <i><b>Autism in Heels</b></i> takes that message to the mainstream.<br /><br />From her own struggles and self-discovery, she has built an empire of empowerment, inspiring women the world over to realize they aren't mistakes. They are misunderstood miracles.
