In Bad Lies, golf's wittiest observer, photographer Charles Lindsay, celebrates the hazards and pitfalls of the game. Lindsay stakes out the diabolic border territories that encroach on golf courses--moon-crater bunkers, waist-high fescue grass, murky lake bottoms--to capture the unbelievable my-ball-went-where? moments that make the game so infuriating and so addictive for so many. This hilarious follow-up to Lindsay's popular Lost Balls (Little, Brown, 2005) features inspired and gorgeous color photographs, plus larger-than-life pictures of some of the world's rarest--and oddest--golf balls. Texts include a foreword by outspoken golf commentator Gary McCord, definitions of the game's offbeat terminology, and a meditation on the golf ball and the immortal soul.

Prominent figures such as Tim Draper and Larry Ellison had invested on Theranos, which once reached a valuation of $9 billion after selling shares in a fundraising round. At this point, Elizabeth Holmes’ net worth was estimated to be around $4.7 billion. All eyes were on Elizabeth Holmes and her company, but the main problem was yet to be solved: Theranos’ technology was a fraud.

Women are expected to embrace the beautiful gift of becoming a Mommy. Giving birth, nourishing our young - these things are the fulfillment of a life's ambition. You'll be spoken of in the same breath as patriotism and apple pie. There you'll be: on a pedestal, admired, happy. All you have to do is be a Good Mommy. Alas, that is a lie. That creature: a figment of our imaginations. The truth is, you will fail. The truth is, we all fail. Bad Mommy celebrates the parenting line between Joan Crawford and June Cleaver. Chances are, you already know the things you don't do right, but what about everyone else? Wonder no longer, you are not alone. If you possess two X chromosomes and have ever contemplated joining the ranks of Mommy, you are, in fact, part of a secret sisterhood. For the first time ever, twenty of your comrades will peel back the veil of denial to confess their fears, shame and dirty little secret--every last one of us is a Bad Mommy.
