Chris Grosso invites us to sit in on conversations with beloved luminaries and bestselling authors such as Ram Dass, Lissa Rankin, Noah Levine, Gabor Mate, and Sharon Salzberg to discover why people return to self-defeating behaviors—drugs, alcohol, unhealthy eating, sex, media—and how they can recover, heal, and thrive. In his recovery from drugs and alcohol, Chris Grosso has stumbled, staggered, and started all over again. In an effort to understand why he relapses, and why many of us return to the myriad of other self-defeating behaviors despite our better judgment, he went to bestselling authors, spiritual teachers, psychologists, doctors, and more, and asked them why we tend to repeat mistakes in our lives, even when we know these actions will harm us and the ones we love. In Dead Set on Living, Chris shares these intimate conversations and the practices that have taught him to be more loving, compassionate, and forgiving with himself as well as new meditation and healing techniques he learned through his journey. Unabashedly honest and inspiring, Dead Set on Living is essential reading for anyone seeking a path towards triumph over adversity, understanding the human condition, and rebuilding relationships after promises have been broken.

As one of the last surviving members of the Band of Brothers, Ed Shames wanted to commit his memories of the Second World War to paper to preserve the legacy of the men who served with him in Europe. Airborne is his dramatic wartime biography, a riveting tale of fierce combat, doggedly determined drive for survival and astounding bravery. Parachuting into Normandy on D-Day with 3rd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division, Shames was involved in some of the most pivotal moments of the Allied invasion, advancing through the bocage of France, and after his transfer to Easy Company in Holland, battled the elements and the ferocious German counterattack at Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge, liberating Nazi concentration camps and helping to capture Hitler's Eagle's Nest. Startling honest and raw, Airborne is the compelling combat biography of a man whose forthright opinions and gruff manner often put him in conflict with his fellow officers, but who was respected by the soldiers he commanded, because he was determined to bring as many of them home alive as he could.

"I hate weddings. If you had an older sister like Sky, you would too. Sky was perfect. Her wedding was perfect. It almost killed her. "I'm Daria, the rebellious indie film critic, the fat sister. Nobody expected me to get married. Eight years after Sky's wedding, the rose petal perfection of it all still hung cover me like a mocking pink cloud. Not that I didn't have a love life -- or at least a sex life -- but I'll talk about the Worst Boyfriend Awards later." San Francisco indie indie film critic Daria MacClellan is most comfortable in a monster movie poster T-shirt and blue jeans. Yet when she falls in love and plans to marry, family drama hijacks her engagement and she's trapped into a formal wedding with her perfectionist, anorexic sister, Sky, planning the whole thing. Daria adores her fiance, but her wedding seems to be spiraling into a horror film. Will the spectre of a picture perfect wedding turn her into the Bride of the Living Dead? "Anyone needing a laugh-out-loud romance full of lovable and real people need look no further," says Margaret Vickers of BookWomanUnbound.blogspot.com. "Jane Austen meets the Marx Brothers," says Laurie Toby Edison, photographer, Women En Large. "Lynne Murray has written a delightful comedy of manners with impeccable politics."

Marie finds herself unexpectedly pregnant at 39. Meanwhile, her best friend, Elizabeth, has never been able to conceive, despite years of fertility treatments. In a genetic test routinely offered to older mothers, Marie discovers that the child she is carrying has Down syndrome. Intertwined throughout the novel is the story of Margaret, a woman who gave birth to a daughter with Down syndrome in 1947, when such infants were considered to be “unfinished” children. As the novel shifts through the decades, the lives of the three women converge, and the story speeds to an unexpected conclusion. With skill and poise, debut novelist Theresa Shea dramatically explores society’s changing views of Down syndrome over the past 60 years. The story offers an unflinching and compassionate history of the treatment of people with Down syndrome and their struggle for basic human rights. Ultimately, The Unfinished Child is an unforgettable and inspiring tale about the mysterious and complex bonds of family, friendship and motherhood.

The Man from Misery and Other Poems is the book that almost never was. This collection of more than two hundred inspired poems took nearly thirteen years to create, and author Brandon Hodge fought an uphill battle for publication. The Man from Misery is a rich collection of poetry from the deepest parts of the heart where poetry should start, rich with themes like hate, anger, loss, lust, life, joy, and, most of all, love. Brandon began writing short stories as a child; when he was eleven years old, he discovered poetry. Poetry comes from the heart and from inside, and Brandon is no stranger to adversity and loss. Born with a serious illness, Brandon was told he would not live to be sixteen; but he overcame lung cancer, personal tragedy, and loss to become the poet he is today. His pain and personal experience have shaped his writing as well as his life.

They were the young ones, the bright ones, the ones with the dreams. From the Nazi-prowled wastes of North Africa to the bloody corridors of Europe, they answered the call gladly. It was their duty, their job, their life. They marched off as boys, and they came back--those who made it--as soldiers and professionals forged in the heat of battle...
