<b>The first ever practical, compassionate, and comprehensive guide to dying—and living fully until you do. </b><br /><br />“There is nothing wrong with you for dying,” palliative care doctor B.J. Miller and Shoshana Berger write in <i>A Beginner’s Guide to the End</i>. “Our ultimate purpose here isn’t so much to help you die as it is to free up as much life as possible until you do.”<br /> <br />Theirs is a clear-eyed and big-hearted action plan for approaching the end of life, written to help readers feel more in control of an experience that so often seems anything but controllable. Their book offers everything from step-by-step instructions for how to do your paperwork and navigate the healthcare system to answers to questions you might be afraid to ask your doctor, like whether or not sex is still okay when you’re sick. You’ll be walked through how to break the news to your employer, whether to share old secrets with your family, how to face friends who might not be as empathetic as you’d hoped, and to how to talk to your children about your will. (Don’t worry: if anyone gets snippy, it’ll likely be their spouses, not them.) There are also lessons for survivors, like how to shut down a loved one’s social media accounts, clean out the house, and write a great eulogy.<br /> <br />An honest, surprising, and detailed-oriented guide to the most universal of all experiences, <i>A Beginner’s Guide to the End</i> is the one book that everyone needs.

Complete with demonstrative illustrations and photographs, <i>Small Space Living</i> offers more than one hundred space-saving ideas from Roberta Sandenbergh, a.k.a the Small Space Architect.<br /><br />Sandenbergh will introduce you to the idea of space opportunities—untapped areas in every home that can be expanded for storage and organizational purposes. A space opportunity might be as simple as using an empty space under a stairway or above a doorway or as complicated as dividing your entire apartment for rental income.<br /><br />Each chapter addresses a different kind of space opportunity area, including closets, corners, walls, windows, ceilings, and floors. In these areas, you will be inspired by Sandenbergh’s creative approaches to divided spaces, stacked spaces, empty spaces, mirrored spaces, and multipurpose furniture. <br /><br />Learn from the author’s stories of her own designs for “small-by-choice” homes—for herself and for her clients—in which she tried to make the best possible use of varied living spaces. Allow Sandenbergh to help you create more space-efficient and attractive areas in your home whether you live in a studio apartment, a tiny home, or a larger home that needs more of a cozy feel.

<p><strong>From one of the most respected figures in the dog rescue community come the harrowing, funny, and inspiring stories of nine incredible dogs that shaped her life.</strong></p><p></p><p></p><p>Tia Torres, beloved underdog advocate and star of Animal Planet's hit show <em>Pit Bulls & Parolees,</em> chronicles her roller-coaster life in this heartwarming memoir featuring some of her best-loved dogs. With inimitable honesty and characteristic brashness, Tia captures the spirit and heart of these intelligent and loving canines, while carrying us behind the scenes of her TV show, into the heart of post-Katrina New Orleans, onto the soundstages of Hollywood films, and even to the jungles of Sri Lanka.</p><strong><p></p></strong><p>Tia has devoted her life to shattering the stereotype that pit bulls are dangerous, vicious predators. As the top dog at the Villalobos Rescue Center in New Orleans, the largest pit bull rescue in the United States, she and her team have rescued, rehabilitated, and rehomed hundreds of animals that might otherwise have been destroyed. As she puts it, "Most of the stories in this book are about animals (and a few humans) that needed someone to believe in them and a purpose in order to show their true nobility." </p><p></p><p>Each dog Tia writes about here has overcome abuse, trauma, neglect, or just bad luck to become a stalwart, loving companion to Tia and her family. You'll meet<strong> </strong>Duke<strong>,</strong> whose intelligence and matinee-idol looks made him a star in movies and music videos; Junkyard Joe, whose single-minded passion for tennis balls was channeled into expertise as a drug-sniffing dog;<strong> </strong>Bluie<strong>,</strong> the unswerving protector of Tia's daughter Tania; and a host of other unforgettable canines. </p><p></p><em></em><p><em>My Life Among the Underdogs</em> is above all a love story--one that is sure to grip the heart of anyone who has ever loved a dog. <strong></strong></p>

From the author of the <i>New York Times</i> bestseller <i>The Girls of Atomic City</i> comes the fascinating true story behind the magnificent Gilded Age mansion Biltmore—the largest, grandest residence ever built in the United States.<BR><BR>Orphaned at a young age, Edith Stuyvesant Dresser claimed lineage from one of New York’s best known families. She grew up in Newport and Paris, and her engagement and marriage to George Vanderbilt was one of the most watched events of Gilded Age society. But none of this prepared her to be mistress of Biltmore House.<BR> <BR>Before their marriage, the wealthy and bookish Vanderbilt had dedicated his life to creating a spectacular European-style estate on 125,000 acres of North Carolina wilderness. He summoned the famous landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted to tame the grounds, collaborated with celebrated architect Richard Morris Hunt to build a 175,000-square-foot chateau, filled it with priceless art and antiques, and erected a charming village beyond the gates. Newlywed Edith was now mistress of an estate nearly three times the size of Washington, DC and benefactress of the village and surrounding rural area. When fortunes shifted and changing times threatened her family, her home, and her community, it was up to Edith to save Biltmore—and secure the future of the region and her husband’s legacy.<BR> <BR>The story of Biltmore spans World Wars, the Jazz Age, the Depression, and generations of the famous Vanderbilt family, and features a captivating cast of real-life characters including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Wolfe, Teddy Roosevelt, John Singer Sargent, James Whistler, Henry James, and Edith Wharton. <i>The Last Castle </i>is the unique American story of how the largest house in America flourished, faltered, and ultimately endured to this day.

<b>In this “little gem” (</b><b><i>Washington Independent Review of Books), </i></b><b>Pulitzer Prize–winning columnist and <i>New York Times</i>bestselling author Dave Barry learns </b><b>how to age happily from his old but joyful dog, Lucy.</b><br /><br />As Dave Barry turns seventy—not happily—he realizes that his dog, Lucy, is dealing with old age far better than he is. She has more friends, fewer worries, and way more fun. So Dave decides to figure out how Lucy manages to stay so happy, to see if he can make his own life happier by doing the things she does (except for drinking from the toilet). He reconnects with old friends and tries to make new ones—which turns out to be a struggle, because Lucy likes people a lot more than he does. And he gets back in touch with two ridiculous but fun groups from his past: the Lawn Rangers, a group of guys who march in parades pushing lawnmowers and twirling brooms (alcohol is involved), and the Rock Bottom Remainders, the world’s oldest and least-talented all-author band. With each new lesson, Dave riffs hilariously on dogs, people, and life in general, while also pondering Deep Questions, such as when it’s okay to lie. (Answer: when scallops are involved.)<br /> <br /><i>Lessons from Lucy</i> shows readers a new side to Dave Barry that’s “touching and sentimental, but there’s still a laugh on every page” (<i>Sacramento Bee)</i>. The master humorist has written a witty and affable guide to joyous living at any age.
