How Children Succeed
Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden

Best-selling author and leading journalist for the New
York Times Magazine and The New Yorker reverses three

The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the
one about intelligence: success comes to those who score highest
on tests, from preschool admissions to SATs.
But in How Children Succeed, Paul Tough argues for a very
different understanding of what makes a successful child. Drawing on groundbreaking research in neuroscience, economics, and
psychology, Tough shows that the qualities that matter most have
less to do with IQ and more to do with character: skills like grit,
curiosity, conscientiousness, and optimism.
How Children Succeed introduces us to a new generation of
scientists and educators who are radically changing our understanding of how children develop character, how they learn to
think, and how they overcome adversity. It tells the personal
stories of young people struggling to stay on the right side of the
line between success and failure. And it argues for a new way of
thinking about how best to steer an individual child — or a whole
generation of children — toward a successful future.
This provocative and profoundly hopeful book will not only
inspire and engage readers; it will also change our understanding
of childhood itself.

Inventing the Enemy covers a wide range of topics on which
Umberto Eco has written and lectured over the past ten years,
from a disquisition on the theme that runs through his most
recent novel, The Prague Cemetery—every country needs an
enemy, and if it doesn’t have one, must invent it—to a discussion of ideas that have inspired his earlier novels. Along the
way, he takes us on an exploration of lost islands, mythical
realms, and the medieval world. Eco also sheds light on the
indignant reviews of James Joyce’s Ulysses by fascist journalists
of the 1920s and 1930s, and provides a lively examination of St.
Thomas Aquinas’s notions about the soul of an unborn child,
censorship, violence, and Wikileaks. These are essays full of
passion, curiosity, and obsessions by one of the world’s most
esteemed scholars and critically acclaimed, best-selling novelists.

By 1960 pro football was flourishing across the country—
except in Texas, where college football still ruled. When two
young oil tycoons started their own pro franchises in Dallas that
very same year—the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys and the Dallas Texans of the newly formed AFL—a bitter feud was born.
Like gunslingers in the Wild West, these conniving Mad
Men of the gridiron knew their hometown wasn’t big enough
for the both of them. The Cowboys and Texans filed lawsuits
against each other, fought over players, undermined each
other’s promotions, and rooted like hell for the other guys to
fail. The Texans’ visionary owner, Lamar Hunt, focused on the
fans, putting together a team of local legends and hiring attractive women to drive around town in red convertibles selling
tickets. Meanwhile, the Cowboys, led by a young Tom Landry
in his first year as head coach, concentrated on holding their
own in the NFL. Ultimately, both teams won the battle, but only
one got to stay in Dallas and become “America’s Team.”
In this highly entertaining narrative, rich in colorful characters and unforgettable stunts, Eisenberg recounts the story of
the birth of pro football in Dallas—and the early moments when
the game began to be part of this country’s DNA.

From his deathbed,* twenty-eight-year-old Oppen Porter—
an open-hearted, bicycle-riding, binocular-toting, self-described
“slow absorber”—unspools into a cassette recorder a tale of selfdetermination, from village idiot to man of the world, for the
benefit of his unborn son.
Written in an astonishingly charming and wise voice,
Oppen’s account traces forty days and nights navigating the
fast-food joints, storefront churches, and home-office psychologists of the San Fernando Valley. Ping-ponging between his
watchful and sharp-tongued aunt and an outlaw philosopher
with the face of “a newly hatched crocodile,” Oppen finds himself constantly in the sights of people who believe that their way
is the only way for him.
Oppen Porter is “an American original” (Stewart O’Nan)
for whom finding one’s own way is both a delightful art and
a painstaking science. Disarmingly funny and surreptitiously
moving, Panorama City makes us see the world, and our place
in it, with new eyes.

Weary of religious conservatives urging “defense of
marriage” and atheist polemics about the crimes of religion?
Sick of pundits who want only to recast American life in their
own image? Americans are stuck in an all-or-nothing landscape
for religion in public life. What are reasonable citizens to do?
Seen as godless by the religious and weak by the atheists,
secularism mostly has been misunderstood. In How to Be
Secular, Berlinerblau argues for a return to America’s hard-won
secular tradition; the best way to protect religious diversity and
freedom lies in keeping an eye on the encroachment of each into
the other.
Berlinerblau passionately defends the virtues of secularism, reminds us what it is and what it can protect, and urges
us to mobilize around its cause, which is for all Americans to
continue to enjoy freedom for—and from—religion. This is an
urgent wake-up call for progressives in and out of all faiths.

Long a silent epidemic, concussions are fast becoming what
sportswriter Bill Simmons calls “the single most important issue
in sports today.” At the center of this crisis is Dr. Robert Cantu.
Cantu has treated thousands of brain trauma patients, from
high-profile professional athletes to peewees. And he is on the
front lines of groundbreaking research that is changing the way
sports are played. Concussions and Our Kids is the first prescriptive book of its kind to address this issue and provide preventive
solutions. Topics include:
• Three concussion tests parents can give at home
• Post-concussion syndrome and what “rest”
really means
• Why helmets are no guarantee of safety
• Why concussions are prevalent in all sports
Part manifesto, part prescription,
Concussions and Our Kids is essential reading
for parents, coaches, and anyone interested
in young athletes and their well-being.

By unflinchingly charting the intersections of public and
personal history, Thrall explores the historical, cultural, and
social forces—across time and space—that determine the roles
consigned to a mixed-race daughter and her white father. In a
vivid series of poems about interracial marriage depicted in the
Casta Paintings of Colonial Mexico, Trethewey investigates
the philosophical assumptions that underpin Enlightenment
notions of taxonomy and classification, exposing the way they
encode ideas of race within our collective imagination. While
tropes about captivity, bondage, inheritance, and enthrallment
permeate the collection, Trethewey, by reflecting on a series of
small estrangements from her poet father, comes to an understanding of how, as father and daughter, they are part of the
ongoing history of race in America.
Thrall confirms not only that Natasha Trethewey is one of
our most gifted and necessary poets but that she is also one of
our most brilliant and fearless.

Among the world’s most popular birds, hawks can be some
of the hardest birds to identify. They’re most often seen flying
high above and at a distance.
In the first edition of Hawks in Flight, Pete Dunne, David
Sibley, and Clay Sutton presented a holistic method of hawk
identification, using general body shape, the way they move,
and the places they are most likely to be seen.
This new edition of the book that Roger Tory Peterson
called a “landmark” integrates an array of carefully selected
photographs, David Sibley’s superb illustrations, and a clear,
information-packed text and takes raptor identification to a
higher level. This edition covers all of the raptors that breed in
North America, including those with limited ranges in Florida,
the Southwest, and Texas.
Picking up where its predecessor ended by including two
decades of raptor identification refinement, Hawks in Flight
summarizes and places in users’ hands an identification skill set
that used to take years to master.

Edward Curtis was dashing, charismatic, a passionate
mountaineer, a famous photographer—the Annie Leibovitz of
his time. And in 1900 he gave it all up to pursue his Great Idea:
he would try to capture on film the Native American nation
before it disappeared.
At once an exhilarating adventure and a penetrating biography, Egan’s book tells the remarkable untold story behind
Curtis’s iconic photographs, following him throughout Indian
country from desert to rain forest as he struggled to document
the stories and rituals of more than eighty tribes. Even with the
backing of Theodore Roosevelt and J. P. Morgan, it took tremendous perseverance—six years alone to persuade the Hopi to
allow him into their Snake Dance ceremony. The undertaking
changed him profoundly, from detached observer to outraged
advocate. He would die penniless and unknown in Hollywood
just a few years after publishing the last of his twenty volumes.
But the charming rogue with the grade school education had
fulfilled his promise—creating one of America’s most stunning
cultural achievements.

New York in 1947 glows with postwar energy. Harry
Copeland, an elite paratrooper who fought behind enemy lines
in Europe, returns home to run the family business. In a single
encounter on the Staten Island ferry, the young singer and heiress Catherine Thomas Hale falls for him in an instant.
Not since Winter’s Tale has Mark Helprin written such
a magically inspiring saga, a career-defining work that ranks
among his greatest. Harry and Catherine pursue one another in
a romance played out in postwar America’s Broadway theaters,
Long Island mansions, the offices of financiers, and the haunts
of gangsters. Catherine’s choice of Harry over her longtime
fiancé endangers Harry’s livelihood and eventually threatens his
life. In the end, it is Harry’s extraordinary wartime experience
that gives him the character and means to fight for Catherine,
and risk everything.
Entrancing in its lyricism, In Sunlight and in Shadow so
powerfully draws you into New York at the dawn of the modern
age that, as in a vivid dream, you will not want to leave.

In the decade since the publication of Bruce Aidells’s
hugely successful The Complete Meat Cookbook, called “authoritative” and “all-encompassing” by the Washington Post, the
world of meat cookery has changed radically. With the rise of
small farmers and the Internet, a more diverse supply is available—not only of beef, pork, lamb, and veal, but also of bison,
venison, and goat. Today’s shopper confronts a host of bewildering, often misleading labels: “certified organic,” “humanely
raised,” “vegetarian diet,” and many more.
Whether the cook shops at the local farmers’ market or the
supermarket, The Great Meat Cookbook is the definitive guide
to the new landscape. In sidebars illustrated with color photographs of each cut, Aidells shows how to pick the best steaks,
chops, roasts, and ribs. With hundreds of recipes, including
“Great Meat Dishes of the World” like Beef Filet Stuffed with
Parmesan and Proscuitto, budget-friendly dishes like Melt-inYour-Mouth Pork Shoulder, speedy dinners like MushroomStuffed T-Bone Lamb Chops, and charcuterie and sausage
selections, Aidells provides all the information needed for juicy
results every time.

Did O.J. do it? How should you flip your mattress to get
the maximum wear out of it? How does Google search the
Internet? How many people should you date before settling
down? Believe it or not, math plays a crucial role in answering
all of these questions and more.
In 2010, award-winning professor Steven Strogatz wrote
a series for the New York Times online called “The Elements
of Math.” It was hugely popular. Each piece climbed the most
e-mailed list and elicited hundreds of comments. Readers
begged for more, and Strogratz has now delivered. In this fun,
fast-paced book, he offers us all a second chance at math.

In January 1990, just months after the fall of the Berlin Wall,
Günter Grass made two New Year’s resolutions: the first was to
travel extensively in the newly united Germany and the second
was to keep a diary, to record his impressions of a historic time.
Grass takes part in public debates, writes for newspapers,
makes speeches, and meets emerging politicians. He talks to German citizens on both sides, listening to their bewilderment, their
hopes for the future. Ideas for stories to be told take root—his
novels The Call of the Toad and Too Far Afield.
From Germany to Germany is also a personal record. Grass
reflects on his family, remembers his boyhood, and comments
on the books he is reading, the drawings he is making, and the
sumptous meals he cooks for family and friends.
The picture that emerges—not only of the two Germanys
struggling for a single identity but of a changed world after the
end of the Cold War—is engrossing, passionate, and essential for
anyone who wants to understand Europe’s new leading nation.

London in 1887. For Maribel Campbell Lowe, the beautiful, bohemian wife of a maverick politician, it is the year to
make something of herself. A self-proclaimed Chilean heiress
educated in Paris, she is torn between poetry and the new art of
photography. But it is soon plain that Maribel’s choices are not
so simple. As her husband’s career hangs by a thread her real
past, and the family she abandoned, come back to haunt them
both. When the notorious newspaper editor Alfred Webster
begins to take an uncommon interest in Maribel, she fears he will
destroy not only Edward’s career but both of their reputations.
Inspired by the true story of a Liberal MP’s wife who lived
a double life for decades, Beautiful Lies is set in a time that,
fraught with economic uncertainty and tabloid scandal-mongering, uncannily presages our own. Praised by Hilary Mantel as
“one of those writers who can see into the past and help us feel
its texture,” Clark has created a brilliant, riveting novel of late
Victorian England.

In eloquent poems about Ariadne, Theseus, and Dido, the
death of a father, a bombing raid in Lebanon, and in a magnificent series detailing Masaccio’s Brancacci Chapel frescoes, The
Selvage deftly traces the line between the “wonder and woe” of
human experience. Keenly attuned to the precariousness of our
existence in a fractured world, Gregerson explores the cruelty of
human and political violence, such as the recent island massacre
in Norway and the current nightmare of war and terrorism. And
yet, running as a counterpoint to violence and cruelty is “The
reigning brilliance / of the genome and / the risen moon” and
“The / arachnid’s exoskeleton. The kestrel’s eye.” The Selvage
is the boldest evidence yet that Linda Gregerson’s unique combination of dramatic lyricism and fierce intelligence transcends
current fashions to claim an enduring place in American poetry.

In 1904, as the Russo-Japanese War deepened, Asia was
parceled out to rising powers and the Korean empire was
annexed by Japan. Facing war and the loss of their nation, more
than a thousand Koreans left their homes to seek possibility
elsewhere—in unknown Mexico.
After a long sea voyage, these emigrants—thieves and royals, priests and soldiers, orphans and entire families—disembark
with the promise of land. Soon they discover the truth: they
have been sold into indentured servitude.
Aboard ship, an orphan, Ijeong, fell in love with the daughter of a noble; separated when the various haciendados claim
their laborers, he vows to find her. After years of working in the
punishing heat of the henequen fields, the Koreans are caught
in the midst of a Mexican revolution. Some flee with Ijeong to
Guatemala, where they found a New Korea amid Mayan ruins.
A tale of star-crossed love, political turmoil, and the dangers of
seeking freedom in a new world, Black Flower is an epic story
based on a little-known moment in history.

The monikers drunk, addict, abuser, and boozehound were
Caleb Daniloff’s for fifteen years. Now, the introduction that fits
him best is “My name is Caleb and I am a runner.”
In Running Ransom Road, Daniloff, now many years sober,
confronts his past by setting out, over the course of eighteen
months, to run races in the cities where he once lived and
wreaked havoc. Competing from Boston to New York, Vermont
to Moscow, Daniloff explores the sobering and inspiring effects
of running, as he traverses the trails of his former self, lined with
dark bars, ratty apartments, lost loves, and lost chances. With
each race he comes to understand who he is, and by extension
who he was, and he finds he is not alone. There are countless souls in sneakers running away from something, and yet,
bravely, running toward it.
In this powerful story of ruin, running, and redemption,
Daniloff illuminates the connection between running and addiction and shows that the road to recovery is an arduous but conquerable one. Strapping on a pair of Nikes won’t banish all your
demons, but it can play an important role in maintaining a clean
life. For Daniloff, sweat, strained lungs, and searing muscles are
among the paving stones of empowerment, and, if he’s lucky,
perhaps even self-forgiveness.

In 1960, Barbra Streisand was just a seventeen-year-old
Brooklyn kid with plenty of talent and even more ambition.
Four years later, she had taken over Broadway as the star of
Funny Girl and had three platinum albums. In Hello, Gorgeous,
William Mann charts that climb to fame. He takes us back to
her formative years: her relationship with her mother, her early
lovers, and her husband Elliott Gould. With access to the previously sealed private collections of Jerome Robbins, Bob Fosse,
and many others, Mann lays out the first-ever accurate account
of the making of Funny Girl, fills in an incomplete record of
Streisand’s early nightclub and television appearances, and
takes us behind the scenes of the canny marketing team whose
strategies made her stardom seem inevitable. He also re-creates
a vibrant piece of New York theatrical history—the dinner clubs
and the birth of Off-Off-Broadway.
Barbra Streisand rewrote all the rules of stardom. In this
intimate portrait, Mann incisively illuminates the woman before
she became the icon.

Illuminations chronicles the life of Hildegard von Bingen
(1098–1179), who was offered to the Church at the age of eight,
entombed in a small room, and expected to live out her days
in silent submission as the handmaiden of a renowned but disturbed young nun, Jutta von Sponheim.
Instead, Hildegard rejected Jutta’s masochistic piety and
found comfort and grace in studying books, growing herbs,
and rejoicing in her own secret visions of the divine. When
Jutta died some three decades later, Hildegard broke out of
her prison with the heavenly calling to speak and write about
her visions and to liberate her sisters and herself from the souldestroying anchorage.
Like Anita Diamant’s portrayal of Dinah in The Red Tent,
Mary Sharratt’s Illuminations interweaves historical research
with psychological insight and vivid imagination, offering an
engaging and triumphant portrait of a courageous and remarkably resilient woman and the life she might have lived. Deeply
affecting, Illuminations is a testament to the power of faith, love,
and self-creation.

Most nature lovers aren’t experts in narrow areas but,
rather, curious about whatever might turn up. There are specialty books that birders use to identify rare birds and others
that botanists use for obscure plants, but most people don’t
carry ten different guidebooks when they go hiking. This book
is for the rest of us, and if you have to take one book along when
you go out for a walk in New England, this is it. This guide will
help identify a cool-looking mushroom, a weird insect crawling on a log, a delicate wildflower, and an intricate shell on the
beach. Birds, mammals, trees, wildflowers, insects, reptiles,
amphibians, sky, fishes, spiders, mushrooms, ferns, and seashells—it’s all here. With authoritative yet broad coverage, using
nontechnical and easy-to-use language and more than 2,000
color photographs, this book is an essential reference for nature
lovers living in or visiting Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont,
Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut.

In the summer of 1957, Frances and Bernard meet at a writers’ colony. She finds him faintly ridiculous, but talented. He
sees her as aloof, but intriguing. Afterward, he writes her a letter. Soon they are immersed in the kind of fast, deep friendship
that can take over—and change the course of—our lives.
Bernard is a poet—wellborn, Harvard-educated, gregarious, passionate. Frances is a fiction writer—daughter of a middle-class Irish family, wry, fairly (and often unfairly) judgmental.
She is deeply Catholic; he is a convert who yearns to sound out
matters of the spirit. He is well into his writing career; she is
looking for a way into New York literary life.
So begins an extraordinary novel told in absorbing correspondence that explores faith, creativity, depression, passion,
what it means to be a true friend, and the nature of acceptable
sacrifice. How much should we give up for those we love?
In witness to all the wonder of kindred spirits and bittersweet
romance, Frances and Bernard is a tribute to the power of
friendship.

Donald Hall draws on his own childhood memories and
gives himself the thing he most wanted but didn’t get as a boy:
a Christmas at Eagle Pond.
It’s the Christmas season of 1940, and twelve-year-old
Donnie takes the train to visit his grandparents’ place in rural
New Hampshire. Once there, he quickly settles into the farm’s
routines. In the barn, Gramp milks the cows and entertains his
grandson by speaking rhymed pieces, while Donnie’s eyes are
drawn to an empty stall that houses a graceful, cobwebby sleigh.
Now Model A’s speed over the wintry roads, which must be
plowed, and the beautiful sleigh has become obsolete. When the
church pageant is over, the gifts are exchanged, and the remains
of the Christmas feast put away, the air becomes heavy with fine
snowflakes—the kind that fall at the start of a big storm—and
everyone wonders, how will Donnie get back to his parents
on time?

poems a new register of language in which time and mortality
echo and reverberate in quieter notes. In “West Shining Tree,”

First published in 1980, the City of Lisbon Prize-winning
Raised from the Ground follows the changing fortunes of the
Mau–Tempo family—poor, landless peasants not unlike
Saramago’s own grandparents. Set in Alentejo, a southern province of Portugal known for its vast agricultural estates, the novel
charts the lives of the Mau–Tempos as national and international events rumble on in the background—the coming of the
republic in Portugal, the two world wars, and an attempt on
the dictator Salazar’s life. Yet nothing really impinges on the
grim reality of the farm laborers’ lives until the first communist
stirrings.
Finally published for the first time in English, Raised from
the Ground is Saramago’s most autobiographical and deeply
personal novel.

Rights: B/T/A/P/M/S: HMH

150 years ago, a Swiss immigrant took America by storm,
launching American science. The charismatic Louis Agassiz
focused his prodigious energies on zoology while also making
a name for himself discovering how Ice Age glaciers formed.
Invited to deliver a series of lectures in Boston, he never left,
becoming the most famous scientist of his time. A pioneer in
field research and an obsessive collector, Agassiz enlisted the
American public in a vast campaign to send him natural specimens, dead or alive, for his ingeniously conceived museum of
comparative zoology. As an educator of enduring impact, he
trained a generation of American scientists and science teachers,
men and women alike.
Irmscher uncovers the dark side, too, of this founding
father of modern American science, revealing little-known
details of the pitched battle between Darwin and Agassiz, his
arch-enemy regarding the theory of evolution. And he sheds
original, provocative light on Agassiz’s role in post–Civil War
racial policies.
A fascinating life story—both inspiring and cautionary—
for anyone interested in the history of American ideas.

Addiction is a preventable, treatable disease. As with other
illnesses, the approaches most likely to work are based on science—not on faith, tradition, contrition, or wishful thinking.
Those facts are the foundation of The Thirteenth Step, a
new paradigm for preventing drug abuse and treating addiction
and the mental illnesses that usually accompany it. Based on
the latest research in psychology, neuroscience, and medicine,
The Thirteenth Step is a leap beyond the traditional approaches
to prevention and treatment. Twelve-step approaches have
helped many, but they have failed to help many more, and Sheff
explains why. He spent time with scores of scientists, social
workers, and addicts and their families to find out what can
work, and just as important, how addiction itself works. The
Thirteenth Step offers clear, cogent counsel for addicts and their
loved ones no matter what stage of the illness they’re in. But it
is also a book for all of us­— a powerful rethinking of one of the
greatest public health challenges of our time.

After the economic meltdown of 2008, many pundits
placed the blame on “complex financial instruments” like derivatives, and the physicists and mathematicians who dreamed
them up. But a young academic named James Weatherall began
to question this narrative. Were the physicists really at fault?
In this important and engaging book, Weatherall tells the
story of how physicists came to Wall Street and how their ideas
changed finance forever. Taking us from fin-de-siécle Paris to
Rat Pack–era Las Vegas, from wartime government labs to yippie communes, Weatherall shows how physicists successfully
brought their science to bear on some of the thorniest problems
in economics, from options pricing to bubbles. But models—
whether in science or finance—have limitations; they break
down under certain conditions. And in 2008, sophisticated
models fell into the hands of people who didn’t understand
their purpose, and didn’t care. It was a catastrophic misuse
of science.
The solution, however, is not to give up on models; it’s to
make them better. And Weatherall reveals the people and ideas
on the cusp of a new era in finance. The Physics of Wall Street
is riveting history that will change how we think about our
economic future.

JAMES OWEN WEATHERALL is a physicist, philosopher, and
mathematician, with graduate degrees from
Harvard, the Stevens Institute of Technology,
and Fairleigh Dickinson University. He has
written for Slate and Scientific American, and
he is presently finishing a second PhD at the
University of California, Irvine.

Five Myths about

Agency

Most of us think there’s nothing new to say about nuclear
weapons. Yes, they’re horrible, possibly immoral, and definitely
dangerous, but they feel necessary. If force is the final arbiter
between nations, and nuclear bombs are the most powerful
weapons, then we’re basically stuck with them. Aren’t we? In
this groundbreaking book, Ward Wilson delivers a resounding
“No.” Blowing the lid off a stale debate, he demonstrates that
much of what we believe about nuclear weapons is based on
emotion and exaggeration. He argues that our current nuclear
policy is shaped by five stubborn myths: that nuclear weapons
shock and awe opponents; that nuclear deterrence is effective
in a crisis; that killing civilians causes leaders to back down;
that the bomb has kept the peace for sixty-five years; and that
we can’t put the nuclear genie back in the bottle. Drawing on
new facts and new historical research, Wilson shatters each
and every one of these myths in a clear-eyed and refreshingly
pragmatic way. The result is a game-changing book that will be
widely read and hotly debated by all who care about peace in
the twenty-first century.

Antarctica is the most alien place on the planet, the only

Out of our fascination with it have come many books, but all
have focused on only one aspect. None has managed to capture
the whole story—until now. Drawing on Walker’s uniquely
broad travel across the continent, Antarctica weaves all the significant threads of life on the vast ice sheet into an intricate tapestry, illuminating what it feels like to be there and why it draws
so many different kinds of people again and again.With her we
witness cutting-edge science experiments, visit the South Pole,
lodge with not only the Americans but also the Italians and the
French, drive snowdozers and drill ice cores, and listen for the
message Antarctica is sending us about our future. This is a
thrilling trip to the farthest corner of our world, from an author
whose work has been praised as “science writing at its best”

When Ted Kerasote was ready for a new dog after losing
his beloved Merle—who died, as all our dogs do, too soon—
he knew he would want to give puppy Pukka the longest life
possible. But how to do that? Is the grain in most dog foods
harmful or not? How many vaccines should dogs get? Should
they automatically be spayed or neutered? Would a purebred
dog be destined to suffer genetic diseases?
The answers will surprise you. Often, conventional wisdom
is wrong. Traveling the dog world in Europe and throughout
North America and interviewing breeders, veterinarians, and
leaders of the animal-welfare movement, Kerasote uses cuttingedge research to help dog owners rethink the everyday choices
they make for their pets. As he did in Merle’s Door, Kerasote
interweaves fascinating science with the joyful, heartwarming story of raising Pukka and his adventures with his many
dog friends in the small Wyoming village of Kelly. Funny,
revelatory, full of the delights of falling in love with a new dog,
Pukka’s Promise will help redefine the potential of our dogs—in
lifespan, in intellect, and in their ability to become better friends

disappointing them in nearly every channel. Recent market
shifts have forced companies to compete not just on product

shift requires a new way to manage companies, looking deep
into every process and incentive to see whether they support the
overall goal: to deliver a great customer experience.
In this book, Forrester Research analysts Harley Manning

If parenting is making Americans unhappy, if it’s impossible to “have it all,” if people don’t have the economic, social,
or political structures needed to support parenting (fewer than
5% of American families employ a nanny), then why do it? And
why are anxious new parents flocking to every Tiger Mother
and Bébé-raiser for advice on how to raise kids?
In Why Have Kids?, Valenti explores these controversial
questions through on-the-ground reporting, startling new
research, and her own unique experiences as a mom. She
moves beyond the black and white “mommy wars” over natural
parenting, discipline, and work-life balance to explore a more
nuanced reality: one filled with ambivalence, joy, guilt, and
exhaustion. A must read for parents as well as those considering
starting a family, Why Have Kids? is an explosive addition to the
conversation about modern parenthood.

A British copywriter house-sits at his composer friend
Oskar’s ultramodern apartment in a glum eastern European
city. The instructions are simple: feed the cats, don’t touch the
piano, and make sure nothing damages the priceless wooden
floors. Content for the first time in ages, he accidentally spills
some wine. The apartment and the narrator’s sanity gradually
fall apart in this unusual and satisfying novel.
Oskar has left several notes for his friend, gently instructing
him in the proper maintenance of the flat. But over the course
of one disastrous week, as the situation in (and out) of the apartment spirals out of control, the notes take on a more insistent—
and creepily prescient—tone.
Anyone who has ever felt inferior to a perfectionist friend
will sympathize with the narrator’s plight. Will Wiles is a genuinely funny comic novelist in the tradition of those two earlier
British W’s, Wodehouse and Waugh.

The most affecting father-son story since Cormac
McCarthy’s The Road, this astonishing memoir is a gut-wrenching account of a life at the crossroads. When he was three,
Benjamin Anastas found himself in his mother’s fringe-therapy
group, a sign around his neck: too good to be true. The phrase
haunts him at forty, when everything around him lies in tatters.
Broke, his promising literary career gone, Anastas is
hounded by debt collectors as he tries to repair a life ripped
apart by the spectacular implosion of his marriage, which ended

Hillbilly Heart
From country music legend Billy Ray Cyrus, a revealing
book about faith, family, and the power of music.

Before he was a star, Billy Ray Cyrus was an ugly duckling
yearning for a purpose. His story starts with a turbulent childhood in Flatwoods, Kentucky, where he discovered gospel
and bluegrass music in the Pentecostal church. Billy pursued a
career in baseball, but an inner voice told him to retire his mitt
and pick up a guitar. Ten years later came his stratospheric
breakthrough. With “Achy Breaky Heart,” Cyrus sold millions
of records, toured the world, and helped turn country music
into an international sensation.
Almost fifteen years later, Cyrus watched as his daughter
Miley followed in his footsteps through her hit Disney show
Hannah Montana. Along with the explosive success of the
show came major trials, and Cyrus entered into what he calls
“the most challenging period of my life.” Only through his
music and faith was Cyrus able to put his family and life back
together again. Deeply revealing, Hillbilly Heart shines a surprising light on one of country music’s most enduring icons and
his notorious Hollywood family.

“Crew to be forbidden to make eye contact with Artist AT
ALL TIMES,” reads the contract of one of the talent judges
on the smash TV show Project Icon. In Elimination Night, we
get a peek at the deliciously outrageous machinations—the ego
clashes, the meltdowns, the cover-ups—that go on behind the
scenes of the talent shows we’ve become addicted to.
Our guide is the coolly observant Sasha, who—like the heroines of The Devil Wears Prada and The Nanny Diaries—has a
peon’s-eye view of a glitzy world that both repels and fascinates
her. This hilarious take on talent in the age of celebrity culture
will change the way you watch American Idol and Dancing with
the Stars.

Liao Yiwu

For a Song and a

A Poet’s Journey through a Chinese Prison
From the renowned Chinese poet in exile comes
a gorgeous and shocking account of his years in
prison following the Tiananmen Square protests.

In the spring of 1989, news of the Tiananmen Square protests and their bloody resolution reverberated throughout the
world. A young poet named Liao Yiwu, who up until then had
led an apolitical, bohemian existence, found his voice in that
moment, and like the solitary man who stood firmly in front of
a line of tanks, Liao proclaimed his outrage—only his weapon
would be his words.
Liao’s memoir, For a Song and a Hundred Songs, captures
the four dehumanizing years he spent in jail for writing the
incendiary poem “Massacre.” Through the power and beauty
of his prose, he reveals the brutal reality of crowded Chinese
prisons—the harassment from guards and fellow prisoners, the
torture, the conflicts among human beings in close confinement,
and the boredom of everyday life.
Hailed by Philip Gourevitch as “one of the most original
and remarkable Chinese writers of our time,” Liao presents a
stark and devastating portrait of a nation in flux. This honest
account and witness to history will forever change the way you
view the rising superpower of China.

LIAO YIWU is a writer, musician, and poet
from Sichuan, China. He is the author of The
Corpse Walker and God Is Red. The majority of
his work is still banned in China.
WENGUANG HUANG is a journalist and

A GREAT MODERN CLASSIC AND

Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious

contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company
of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on
an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard
guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous
dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his
journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic
ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum.
Written for J.R.R. Tolkien’s own children, The Hobbit has sold
many millions of copies worldwide.

“ONE OF THE BEST CHILDREN’S BOOKS
OF THIS CENTURY.”
— W. H. AUDEN

The Art of the Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien
When J.R.R. Tolkien wrote The Hobbit, he was
already an accomplished amateur artist, and
drew illustrations for his book while it was still
in manuscript. His illustrations add an extra
dimension to that remarkable book and have
long influenced how readers imagine Bilbo
Baggins and his world. Written and edited by
leading Tolkien experts Wayne G. Hammond and
Christina Scull, The Art of The Hobbit by J.R.R.
Tolkien showcases the complete artwork created
by the author for his story—including related pictures, more than one hundred sketches, drawings,
paintings, maps, and plans. Some of these images
are published here for the first time, others for
the first time in color, allowing Tolkien’s Hobbit
art to be seen completely and more vividly than
ever before.

In September 1973, the military took power in Chile, and
Ariel Dorfman, a young leftist allied with President Allende,
was forced to flee for his life. In Feeding on Dreams, Dorfman
portrays, through visceral scenes and with startling honesty, the
personal and political maelstroms that have defined his life since
the Pinochet coup.
Dorfman’s wry and masterfully told account provides a
page-turning tour of the past several decades of North-South
political history and of the complex consequences of revolution
and tyranny. Hailed by Salman Rushdie as “one of the most
important voices coming out of Latin America,” human rights
activist and acclaimed author Ariel Dorfman delivers a memoir
excavating for the first time his profound and provocative journey as an exile.

This “fiery ode to boyhood” (Scott Simon, NPR) tracks
three brothers as they tear their way through childhood, growing up in the shadow of Paps and Ma and learning a kind of love

The latest international bestseller from the author of
The Name of the Rose and Foucault’s Pendulum.
Nineteenth-century Europe—from Turin to Prague to
Paris—abounds with the ghastly and the mysterious. Jesuits
plot against Freemasons. Italian republicans strangle priests
with their own intestines. French criminals plan bombings by
day and celebrate Black Masses at night. Every nation has its
own secret service, perpetrating forgeries, plots, and massacres.
Conspiracies rule history. From the unification of Italy to the
Paris Commune to the Dreyfus Affair to The Protocols of the
Elders of Zion, Europe is in tumult and everyone needs a scapegoat. But what if, behind all of these conspiracies, both real and
imagined, lay one lone man?

Bettina Ballentyne is a chocolate heiress by name only; it
is Babs, her bombshell of a single mother, who lives up to the
billing. A woman who refuses to play by the rules, Babs barrages her ten-year-old daughter with steamy details of her sexual
encounters and contrives to send Bettina to her married lover’s
home when she knows his wife is there. Babs calls the shots
and Bettina must make do ducking and covering. Finally, when
Bettina finds a way out by enrolling in a top-tier New Hampshire boarding school, is it really just cruel chance that she has
a romantic encounter with the son of her mother’s lover? Or is
there no way to escape Babs’s long and mesmerizing maternal
shadow?
As addictive, decadent, and delicious as chocolate itself,
this compulsively readable, sassy debut is the perfect mix
of tragic and comic. Prepare to be shocked by the sound of
your laughter during the novel’s darkest and most scandalous
moments. The Chocolate Money is utterly unputdownable.

Diana Reiss is not just an advocate for dolphins, she is one
of the world’s leading experts on dolphin intelligence. In The
Dolphin in the Mirror, Reiss combines science and activism
to show just how smart dolphins really are and why we must
stop mistreating them. Dolphins are creative and self-aware,
with distinct personalities and the ability to communicate with
humans. They craft their own toys, use underwater keyboards,
and develop complex social structures. And yet some nations
slaughter them indiscriminately while others keep them captive
in cruel conditions. Reiss, who served as a consultant to the
Academy Award-winning film The Cove, has devoted her life
to studying whales and dolphins since the 1970s and fills the
book with personal stories from her life’s work. The Dolphin in
the Mirror is both a scientific revelation and an emotional eyeopener, revealing one of the greatest intelligences on the planet.

Perhaps nothing changed the face of America more than the
creation of the interstate system. At once a connective network,
economic force, man-made wonder, and bringer of sprawl and
blight, the interstate system turned haphazard dirt tracks into
an organized framework of paved highways. The Big Roads
documents this historic feat, from its inception at the turn of the
century to its completion during Eisenhower’s presidency. But
once those plans began to be put into place, it turned out that
not everyone was on board. As the highways approached urban
centers, residents protested both the impact upon Main Streets
and the environment, concerns that are just as relevant today.
With a view toward players both great and small, Swift gives
readers the full story of one of America’s greatest engineering
achievements.

Army cop Erik Rider prefers to fight his war in the saloons
and streets of Saigon. When he is sent to disrupt a Vietcong
opium operation deep in the jungle, he could not be less interested. But when Rider lands in Cheo Reo, things get complicated. The American outpost is home to battle-hardened
soldiers, intelligence operatives, and profiteers of all stripes.
Meanwhile, Vietcong battalions are massing in the hills, and
sixty thousand Montagnard tribespeople are advancing with the
goal of reclaiming their mountain homeland.
With a bounty on his head, Rider must hunt for the opium
smugglers, avoid enemy patrols, and defend the undermanned
U.S. base. As he closes in on the smuggling operation, he discovers that someone inside the base has a stake in it, and is willing to kill to protect that stake.

In the village of Tel Ilan, something is off kilter. An elderly
man complains to his daughter that he hears the sound of digging under his house at night. Could it be his tenant, a young
Arab? But then the tenant hears the mysterious digging sounds
too. The mayor receives a note from his wife: “Don’t worry
about me.” He looks all over, no sign of her. The veneer of new
wealth around the village—gourmet restaurants and art galleries,
a winery—cannot conceal abandoned outbuildings, disused
air raid shelters, rusting farm tools, and trucks left wherever
they stopped.
Amos Oz’s novel-in-stories is a brilliant, unsettling glimpse
of what goes on beneath the surface of everyday life. Scenes from
Village Life is a parable for Israel, and for all of us.

Even people who aren’t fans of baseball know Fenway
Park. More than just a stadium, it is a part of American culture,
and has been for nearly one hundred years. In Fenway 1912,
Glenn Stout tells the remarkable story of Fenway’s first year,
from the long winter when locals poured concrete and built the
park to the ragtag Red Sox team that embarked on a journey
to the World Series while the paint was still drying and the
grass still coming in. Stout tells the stories behind the park’s
notorious quirks like the Green Monster, and of the designers,
builders, managers, and players who made Fenway’s first year
unforgettable. For all that has been written in tribute to the great
Fenway Park, no one has ever really told the behind-the-scenes
true story. Drawing on extensive new research, the esteemed
baseball historian Glenn Stout delivers an extraordinary tale of
innovation, desperation, and perspiration—capturing Fenway
as never before.

In this, his last novel, Jose Saramago daringly reimagines
the characters and narratives of the Bible through the story of
Cain. Condemned to wander forever after he kills Abel, Cain is
whisked around in time and space. He experiences the almostsacrifice of Isaac by Abraham, the Tower of Babel, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Joshua at the battle of Jericho,
Job’s ordeal, and finally Noah’s ark and the Flood. And over
and over again Cain encounters an unjust, even cruel God. A
startling, beautifully written, and powerful book, Cain is in all
ways a fitting end to Saramago’s extraordinary career.

A Better War
ISBN 978-0-15-601309-3 $16.00 PA

General William Westmoreland should have been a superb
choice to command U.S. forces in Vietnam. He had the credentials: from Eagle Scout at fifteen, he had rocketed up the ranks,
becoming, briefly, the Army’s youngest lieutenant general. But
as commander, Westmoreland was a disaster, failing to grasp
the war’s complexities and holding firm to a flawed strategy in
spite of all evidence and opposition.
In this honest but searing portrait of a military man promoted beyond his capabilities, Sorley “makes mincemeat of
[the] myth” (Wall Street Journal) that politicians, the media, or
the American public should take the blame for our military failure in Vietnam. For anyone who seeks to understand what happened to us in Vietnam and why, this “blistering indictment”
(Kirkus) is essential reading.

Wife, mother, leader, warrior. Caterina Riario Sforza was
one of the most prominent women in Renaissance Italy—and
one of the most vilified. In this glittering biography, Elizabeth
Lev reexamines her extraordinary life and accomplishments.
Raised in the court of Milan and wed at age ten to the
pope’s corrupt nephew, Caterina was ensnared in Italy’s political intrigues early in life. After turbulent years in Rome’s papal
court, she moved to the Romagnol province of Forlí. Following
her husband’s assassination, she ruled Italy’s crossroads with
iron will, martial strength, political savvy—and an icon’s fashion
sense. In finally losing her lands to the Borgia family, she put up
a resistance that inspired all of Europe and set the stage for her
progeny—including Cosimo de’ Medici—to follow her example
to greatness.

Each year the Army and Navy football teams meet for
one epic game. Across the nation, fans tune in to see who will
emerge victorious. But no game will ever match the one that
was played on December 2, 1944. America was in the midst of
World War II: soldiers and sailors were dying around the globe,
and the homefront suffered through shortages. But for one day,
all that was forgotten.
Navy’s team was ranked number 2, Army, number 1 and
on the verge of becoming national champions. Everywhere,
the war stopped as soldiers listened to the broadcast. Randy
Roberts has interviewed the surviving players and coaches,
bringing their stories to life. For three years, military upperclassmen graduated and joined the fight. For three hours, their
alma mater gave them back one unforgettable performance.

It is the fifteenth century, and France is under siege. English soldiers tear through the countryside destroying all who
cross their path, and Charles VII, the uncrowned king, has neither the strength nor the will to rally his army. And in the quiet
of her parents’ garden in Domrémy, a peasant girl sees a spangle
of light and hears a powerful voice speak her name. Jehanne.
The Maid is more than the story of Jehanne d’Arc, the
visionary and saint who believed she had been chosen by God
to lead an army. Cutter’s retelling of Jehanne-the girl—whose
sister was murdered by the English, who sought an escape from
a violent father and a forced marriage, and who somehow found
the courage and tenacity to persuade first one, then two, then
thousands to follow her—is at once thrilling, unexpected, and
heartbreaking.

Patricia Bosworth has gone beyond the image of an American superwoman to reveal a Jane Fonda more powerful and
vulnerable than ever expected. Fonda emerged from a heartbreaking Hollywood family drama to become a ‘60s onscreen
ingénue and then an Oscar-winning actress. At the top of her
game she risked all, rising up against the Vietnam War and
shocking the world with a trip to Hanoi. While becoming one
of Hollywood’s most committed feminists, she financed her
husband Tom Hayden’s political career in the ‘80s with exercise videos that began a fitness craze and brought in millions of
dollars. Just as interesting is Fonda’s next turn, as a Stepford
Wife of the Gulfstream set, marrying Ted Turner and seemingly
walking away from her ideals and her career. Fonda’s multi-leveled story is a blend of the deep insecurity, magnetism, bravery,
and determination that has fueled her inspiring and occasionally
infuriating public life.

PATRICIA BOSWORTH, a contributing editor
at Vanity Fair, has known Jane Fonda since
they were both students at the Actors Studio,
and has been writing about her since 1968.
Bosworth has also written acclaimed biographies of Montgomery Clift, Diane Arbus, and

Ragle Gumm has a unique job: every day he wins a newspaper contest. And when he isn’t consulting his charts and tables,
he enjoys his life in a small town in 1959. At least, that’s what
he thinks. But then strange things start happening. He finds a
phone book where all the numbers have been disconnected,
and a magazine article about a famous starlet he’s never heard of
named Marilyn Monroe. Plus, everyday objects are beginning
to disappear and are replaced by strips of paper with words
written on them like “bowl of flowers” and “soft drink stand.”
When Ragle skips town to try to find the cause of these bizarre
occurrences, his discovery could make him question everything
he has ever known.

After the twentieth century’s devastating series of wars, the
world’s governments banded together into one globe-spanning

the Vulcan supercomputer, responsible for all major decisions.
But some people don’t like being taken out of the equation. And

As the world grows ever closer to all-out war, one functionary

Jack Isidore doesn’t see the world like most people. Spending all of his time filling notebooks with bizarre theories and

sister and brother-in-law feel compelled to rescue him from it.
But while Fay and Charlie Hume put on a happy face for the

Today the North and South Poles are home to research stations and film crews, but just a century ago they were forbidding
lands seldom seen by human eyes. Those who journeyed there
were the last true explorers, and one of the most successful ever
was Roald Amundsen. Known as “the last of the Vikings,” the
Norwegian-born Amundsen began his career of adventure at
fifteen, and by forty he had become the first man to reach both
the North and South Poles. In South with the Sun, swimmer
and adventurer Lynne Cox gives an account of Amundsen’s life
and expeditions while detailing her own experiences swimming
(without a wetsuit) in those same polar regions. At once a biography, history, and memoir, the book holds something for any
lover of adventure.

For thousands of years, religions have offered human
beings moral guidance and meaning in life. But if — as the Dalai
Lama argues — the majority of the world’s population is no longer religious, where should we turn for moral guidance?
In Beyond Religion, one of the world’s most renowned religious leaders and peacemakers lays out his vision for the nonreligious way — a path to lead an ethical, happy, and spiritual life.
Transcending the religion wars, he outlines a system of ethics
for our shared world, one that makes a stirring appeal for what
he calls a “third way.” Here is a ground-breaking blueprint for
all those who may choose not to identify with a religious tradition yet still yearn for a life of spiritual fulfillment as they work
for a better world.

Set in modern India, these three novellas move beyond
the cities to places still haunted by the past, and to characters
who are, each in their own way, masters of self-effacement. An
unnamed government official is called upon to inspect a faded
mansion of forgotten treasures where he discovers a surprise
“relic.” A translator blurs the line between writer and translator,
and in so doing risks unraveling her desires and achievements.
In the title novella, a hermit hidden away in the woods with a
secret is discovered by a film crew, which compels him to withdraw even further until he magically disappears…
Rich and evocative, remarkable in their clarity and sensuous in their telling, these novellas remind us of the extraordinary yet delicate power of this pre-eminent writer.

Pi Patel is sixteen when his family emigrates from India to
North America aboard a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks,
and Pi is left alone on a lifeboat, his only companions stranded
zoo animals: a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra, and a Bengal tiger.
Soon the tiger dispatches all but Pi; his fear, knowledge, and
cunning must guide him to coexist with the tiger for 227 days
at sea. First published ten years ago, Life of Pi took the world
by storm, selling millions of copies and hitting every major
bestseller list. Now, timed to coincide with the anticipated

A dishy, incisive exploration of gossip—from celebrity

Gossip is no trivial matter; despite its reputation, Epstein
argues, it is an eternal and necessary human enterprise. Proving
that he himself is a master of the art, Epstein serves up delightful
mini-biographies of the Great Gossips of the Western World,
along with many choice bits from his own experience. He also
makes a powerful case that gossip has morphed from its oldfashioned best—clever, mocking, a great private pleasure—to a
corrosive new-school version, thanks to the reach of the mass
media and the Internet.
Written in his trademark erudite and witty style, Gossip
captures the complexity of this immensely entertaining subject.

Wael Ghonim was a little-known, thirty-year-old Google
executive in the summer of 2010 when he anonymously
launched a Facebook page to protest the death of one Egyptian man at the hands of security forces. The page’s following expanded quickly and moved from online protests to a
nonconfrontational movement. On January 25, 2011, Tahrir
Square resounded with calls for change. Yet just as the revolution began in earnest, Ghonim was captured and held for twelve
days of brutal interrogation. After he was released, he gave a
tearful speech on national television, and the protests grew more
intense. Four days later, the president of Egypt was gone.
In this riveting story Ghonim takes us inside the movement
and shares the keys to unleashing the power of crowds.
In Revolution 2.0, we can all be heroes.

Established by the Catholic Church in 1231, the Inquisition continued in one form or another for almost seven hundred
years. Though associated with the persecution of heretics and
Jews—and with burning at the stake—its targets were more
numerous and its techniques more ambitious. The Inquisition
pioneered surveillance and censorship and “scientific” interrogation. As time went on, its methods and mindset spread far
beyond the Church to become tools of secular persecution.
With vivid immediacy and authority, Cullen Murphy puts
a human face on a familiar but little-known piece of our past.
God’s Jury encompasses the diverse stories of the Knights
Templar, Torquemada, Galileo, and Graham Greene. By
understanding the Inquisition, Murphy argues, we come face
to face with forces that shape the modern world.

CULLEN MURPHY is the editor-at-large at

In the tradition of Fun Home, this charming graphic memoir tells of a psychic reading that spurs a Portland ’zinester to
uncover an old secret about her father and the family she never
knew.
When Nicole Georges is two years old, her mother tells her
that her father is dead. When she is twenty-three, a psychic tells
her he is alive. Her sister, saddled with guilt, admits that the
psychic is right and that the whole family has conspired to keep
him a secret. Sent into a tailspin about her identity, Nicole turns
to the unlikely radio talk-show host Dr. Laura Schlessinger
for advice.
Packed cover-to-cover with heartfelt and disarming blackand-white illustrations, Calling Dr. Laura shares the story of
what happens when you are raised in a house filled with dysfunction and deceit, and what happens to your brain (and heart)
after you leave. Part coming-of-age and part coming-out story,
Calling Dr. Laura marks the arrival of an exciting and winning
new voice in graphic literature.

Sebastian Seung, a dynamic young professor at MIT, is at
the forefront of a revolution in neuroscience. He believes that our
identity lies not in our genes, but in the connections between our
brain cells—our particular wiring. Seung and a dedicated group
of researchers are leading the effort to map these connections,
neuron by neuron, synapse by synapse. It’s a monumental effort,
but if they succeed, they will uncover the basis of personality,
identity, intelligence, memory, and perhaps disorders such as
autism and schizophrenia.
Connectome is a mind-bending adventure story, told with
great passion and authority, that presents a daring scientific and

are, both as individuals and as a species.

Stacia Brown’s debut brings a captivating new voice, underscored with incredible research, to historical fiction. Brown
takes us to 1649 London: King Charles has been beheaded for
treason, Cromwell is in power, the Levelers are demanding
rights for the people, and a new law targeting unwed mothers
presumes anyone who conceals the death of her illegitimate
child is guilty of murder.
Glovemaker Rachel Lockyer is locked in a secret affair. But
while her lover is imprisoned in the Tower, a child is found
buried in the woods. Rachel is arrested. So comes an investigation, a trial, and an extraordinary cast of characters all brought
to reckon for this one life. Spinning within is a remarkable love
story and evidence of the miracles that come to even the commonest lives.

This new, fourth edition of The Chambers Thesaurus is
fully revised and updated with the latest words entering the
language that reflect a range of social and technological changes.
From the digital world comes the growth of “citizen journalism,” the menace of the “cyberbully” and the tricky rules
of “netiquette.” The green agenda is explored through the
evolution of recycling—“precycle” and “upcycle”—as well as
the inclusion of “organic” and “e-waste.” From the economic
recession comes “agflation,” “NEET,” “cash-strapped” and the
increasingly popular “daycation.”
Whether it’s words to impress at an interview (“champion,”
“skillset”), learning how to avoid annoying cliches (how about
“ultimately” instead of “at the end of the day?”), or understanding modern phobias such as “email bankruptcy” and “infomania,” The Chambers Thesaurus is the perfect resource for
anyone wanting to write, present, or speak the English language
creatively.

Chambers is one of the world’s most respected reference
publishers, appealing particularly to word lovers and those who
revel in all the quirks of the English language. Meticulously
researched and expertly written, the highly acclaimed Chambers
range has been at the forefront of presenting knowledge and
learning in an engaging and accessible way since it was first
established in the nineteenth century.
