In this saucy, sexy romp—third in the Classy 'n' Sassy series—a lingerie shop marketing director is ready to get back in the dating game after divorcing her cheating ex-husband. Will she finally find her one and only this time around? Penny used to love working at Classy 'n' Sassy Lingerie shop as the marketing director for her best friends Bryn and Mia, but lately, hearing stories of love and passion from customers is grating on her nerves since she’s been unlucky in the love department and is still recovering from her messy divorce. Determined to get back out there and have a little fun, Penny wants to start looking for the man who will truly be the love of her life, but the hunky bouncer at her favorite bar keeps catching her eye... As a football coach and bouncer at the local watering hole, Thor’s always had pretty good luck with women. But he’s tired of that life, and wants to find that “something” that's been missing in all of his past relationships. And there’s no way a bar is the place to meet that special someone, right? Although lately, when Bryn and Mia and their newly-single, hot-as-sin, classy, and sassy friend Penny stop by for drinks, he’s been thinking maybe the bar is exactly the right place to be… Written with Stephanie Haefner’s signature sexy wit, One Size Fits All is a perfect laugh-out-loud love story.

"Health and fitness expert Jennifer Widerstrom has learned one important thing through her work with contestants on NBC's The Biggest Loser and her clients who have collectively lost thousands of pounds: when it comes to dieting, one size does not fit all. In order to successfully lose weight, your diet plan should be based on your needs and patterns as an individual. Now, in her first book, Widerstrom has developed a revolutionary plan for maximizing weight loss and keeping it off once and for all by eating right for your specific personality type. Our personalities make us who we are, and understanding yours, along with your unique needs and style, is what will help you effectively lose weight for the long term rather than the short term. In this book, Widerstrom reveals the five basic, most common personality types. Starting with a simple quiz, readers will be able to figure out which type they fall into: the Everyday Hero (who always puts themselves last), the Rebel (who is impulsive and noncommittal), the Organized Doer (the type-A personality who craves routine and rules), the Swinger (the adventurous type who follows the trendiest fads), or the Never Ever (who believes if the pants don't fit, buy bigger pants). Once they've identified their type, readers will be guided through a four-week diet and fitness plan that caters to their own individual strengths and weaknesses. With motivational advice, meal plans, recipes, exercise plans, and more, readers will finally learn how to effectively lose weight and maintain a lasting healthy lifestyle"--

One Size Fits Few is a sharp, pointed pin with which to deflate the overblown pro-Standards movement. In her hilarious, unsparing, and often touching narrative, Susan Ohanian-a teacher, author, and frequent contributor to the Atlantic, Education Week, and other publications-recounts her quest to make sense of the Standards movement. "Making sense" is no small feat, as we see when Ohanian muses on school districts withholding diplomas from students who fail to demonstrate "necessary knowledge" of topics such as covalent bonds, the Edict of Nantes, La Cucaracha, and the Slough of Despond. Balance is even more elusive in the media, as is evident when Ohanian drafts an op-ed piece on Goals 2000 for USA Today. When her editor repeatedly finds the real-life students she portrays "too unique," too urban, too nonstandard, she realizes that all he wants to know is "how the kids in Grosse Pointe measure up against the kids in Larchmont or Palo Alto, and how both compare to the Japanese." Ironically, even in Japan, Ohanian finds gross denial: When she asks "What happens when a child fails to keep up with his peers?," she is reassured that this never happens. Yet no one can explain how the McDonald's clerk fits into the Japanese educational/social system. Underlying the irony is a call to action. "It is my moral duty to offer a counterargument to people who would try to streamline, sanitize, and standardize education" says Ohanian. "When we get down to the realities of the classroom . . . the antics of Standardistos are no longer funny . . . what we need to do is fight back."

An eye-opening tour of the addiction treatment industry explores the gap between what should happen and what does What happens inside drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers and how rehab works are a mystery to those outside the industry – and sometimes even to those inside it. Anne M. Fletcher is a trusted New York Times bestselling health and medical writer who visited 15 addiction treatment centers—from outpatient programs for the indigent to famous celebrity rehabs; from the sites of renowned Twelve-Step centers to several unconventional programs—to find out what really happens. What she reveals ranges from inspirational to irresponsible, and, in some cases, potentially dangerous. Real Stories: As always with her books, Fletcher gets the inside story by turning to real people who “have been there,” interviewing more than 100 individuals whose compelling stories illustrate serious issues facing people in rehab and endemic in the rehab industry today. Connected Writer and Researcher who has earned the respect (and cooperation) of experts throughout the fields she’s taken on. Inside Rehab is no exception—Fletcher has interviewed more than 100 professionals working in the field, including a mix of rehab staffers and administrators as well as leading academics. Rehab is constantly covered in the media, as celebrities battle their drug and alcohol issues in the spotlight and reality TV puts recovery in prime time. Addiction is no longer only a personal struggle—it’s a pop culture phenomenon. Myth Busting: Fletcher exposes twelve supposed facts for the falsehoods they are, including “rehab is necessary for most people to recover from addictions;” “highly trained professionals provide most of the treatment in addiction programs;” and “drugs should not be used to treat a drug addict.” Fletcher’s most important finding is the alarming discrepancy between the treatments being employed at many rehab centers and the treatments recommended by leading experts and supported by scientific research. Guidance and Practical Solutions: Inside Rehab also highlights what is working, spotlights state-of-the-art programs and practices, and offers advice and guidance for people seeking quality care and treatment for themselves or those they care about. Inside Rehab is the first book to give readers a thoughtful, sensitive, and bracingly honest insider’s view of the drug and alcohol rehab industry in America. For people seeking quality care for themselves or a loved one, Inside Rehab is essential reading, offering a wealth of accurate information and wise guidance.
