How I Slept My Way to the Middle winningly combines never-before-heard stories featuring A-list entertainers with fan favorites and Kevin’s own thoughts about how he made it.

That huge risk—which paid off in spades—was just the beginning. Find out how he brought John Belushi to his knees, tortured Paul Reiser (twice), bamboozled Larry King, stole Alan Arkin’s soul, almost killed Warren Beatty, and sucked face with Robert DeNiro’s girlfriend. Now a new media entrepreneur, he’s laughing proof that if you follow your gut and believe in yourself, you can do anything you want—except have a rational conversation with Rip Torn, who’s an evil, paranoid $#!%.

The Sleep Revolution from the Author: Arianna Huffington. We are in the midst of a sleep deprivation crisis, writes Arianna Huffington, the co-founder and editor in chief of The Huffington Post. And this has profound consequences – on our health, our job performance, our relationships and our happiness. What is needed, she boldly asserts, is nothing short of a sleep revolution. Only by renewing our relationship with sleep can we take back control of our lives. In her bestseller Thrive, Arianna wrote about our need to redefine success through well-being, wisdom, wonder, and giving. Her discussion of the importance of sleep as a gateway to this more fulfilling way of living struck such a powerful chord that she realized the mystery and transformative power of sleep called for a fuller investigation. The result is a sweeping, scientifically rigorous, and deeply personal exploration of sleep from all angles, from the history of sleep, to the role of dreams in our lives, to the consequences of sleep deprivation, and the new golden age of sleep science that is revealing the vital role sleep plays in our every waking moment and every aspect of our health – from weight gain, diabetes, and heart disease to cancer and Alzheimer’s. In The Sleep Revolution, Arianna shows how our cultural dismissal of sleep as time wasted compromises our health and our decision-making and undermines our work lives, our personal lives -- and even our sex lives. She explores all the latest science on what exactly is going on while we sleep and dream. She takes on the dangerous sleeping pill industry, and all the ways our addiction to technology disrupts our sleep. She also offers a range of recommendations and tips from leading scientists on how we can get better and more restorative sleep, and harness its incredible power. In today's fast-paced, always-connected, perpetually-harried and sleep-deprived world, our need for a good night’s sleep is more important – and elusive -- than ever. The Sleep Revolution both sounds the alarm on our worldwide sleep crisis and provides a detailed road map to the great sleep awakening that can help transform our lives, our communities, and our world.

Still Alive 2 Red Versus Green from the Author: A.C. Thorne. Ceres had never met anyone like Liam before. It wasn’t his looks or anything physical that made him different, but was something that was impossible to see and even harder to describe. It was the way that he made her feel. As if a world filled with the reanimated dead wasn’t enough, a new, even more insidious threat has now reared its ugly head. They tore her away from him and made her fight for her life. Cornered and hopelessly outnumbered she was about to succumb when an unexpected ally intervened to save her life. Ceres has now joined the resistance, literally under ground – a covert alliance known as CATO – between humans and an alien race known as the Gray. But after decades of mistrust and misinformation the alliance is on the brink of collapse. As her world becomes stranger and uncomfortably complex she focuses on a live overhead satellite image of Liam – her beacon of hope, harmony and sanity in an inhuman and insane world. Time is running out for the survival of the human race and the odds are stacked heavily against the unstable alliance known as CATO. Can Ceres find a way to make a difference before it’s too late? STILL ALIVE is a genre-crossing thrill ride which takes the reader from narrowly surviving a zombie outbreak to learning that the plague is just the pre-cursor to something even larger and much more sinister. Just when solo running and gunning seems like the epitome of surviving a running-zombie infested world STILL ALIVE leads us to the cusp of hard science fiction, reinventing the zombie ‘virus’ while at the same time upgrading it to seeming plausibility.

All About Me (Love & Hate series #2) I’m the monster, a bloody human incapable of emotion I soon realise that my revenge didn’t make me feel any fucking better about myself, instead it pissed me off to realise that I’m in love with her. Two days later the letter addressed to me arrives in the post and the ground moves beneath my feet, because the whole truth about India is out in the open and the pain punches me so hard that I can’t breathe, darkness crawls through me, sparking all the insecurities and fears about my dead brother back to ugly reality. Then off I go with my apology, trying to fix this fucked up situation but she doesn’t want to listen.

Labor Of Love from the Author: Deborah Lynch Walsh. A personal account of one teacher’s journey through the labyrinth that is urban public education. While claiming to need teachers meeting the highest of intellectual and professional standards, the educational bureaucracy really demands bureaucrats who execute decisions, not professionals who make decisions. The teacher whose life is at the center of this book, turns, surprisingly, to her union to reclaim what she believes to be the legacy of her profession. Thus, begins a parallel journey into the inner workings of the teachers’ union movement. She finds another contradiction as compelling as the first: Does the teachers’ union represent "workers" or "professionals?” Is it to focus strictly on bread and butter issues or are professional issues also its concern--even its obligation? Written by someone who knows both the school system and the union from the inside out, this book asks the tough questions, explodes the erroneous myths, and exposes the conflicting contradictions in public education and in its union movement. Most of all, however, it describes the enormous stakes that await the decision that the teachers themselves have to make. It comes down to one critical question: Are they “workers” or are they “professionals?” [author bio]Deborah Lynch Walsh is a Chicago Public School teacher, an activist in the Chicago Teachers Union, and an advocate for teacher empowerment and education reform. She holds bachelor and master’s degrees in education, and a Ph. D. in educational policy analysis. Walsh has worked in schools and unions for 25 years.
