Rarely does one get an opportunity to experience the nightmare that is Alzheimer's Disease from the perspective of the person who has been stricken with it. In his book, "While I Still Can," Rick Phelps, the founder of "Memory People," an online Alzheimer's and dementia support group, changes all of that. Diagnosed with Early-Onset Alzheimer's Disease in his 50's, Rick decided it was time the veil was lifted. Throughout this book the reader is given a firsthand account of: the early signs that Rick experienced, the loneliness he felt during the denial period of family and friends, the terror that gripped his heart upon receiving the undeniable diagnosis and, after the diagnosis, how he and his loved ones have learned to cope with this mind robbing and fatal disease. A real page turner, "While I Still Can," affords an uncommon glimpse into the world of memory loss, while at the same time it tells the story of love, commitment, faith and courage in the face of a catastrophic disease.

Attention, guys of America: It's time to get off the couch, turn off the PlayStation, and set down your beer (just kidding—never set down your beer). Your days of freedom are numbered. Every guy owes it to himself to do something audacious, ostentatious, hilarious, or just plain fun before it's too late. The time is now for the kinds of things that will be decidedly against the rules after you "settle down." Die Happy is here to help you create the kind of stories you'll be telling for the rest of your life. Stories about things like: · How you spent your graduation cash: You start at Oktoberfest in Munich and wake up on a Thai beach (which is totally what your Aunt Edith had in mind). From Fantasy Fest to La Tomatina, here's a breakdown of the wildest parties and the craziest worldwide destinations. · The best places to, ahem, explore other cultures (or whatever): Corfu's Pink Palace. Ireland's pubs. Amsterdam's Red Light District. Ibiza. Plus plenty of other fascinating events and locales, many of which also happen to serve booze. · Getting a job (don't worry, not a real job): Jet Ski guy. Cruise ship bartender. Casino dealer. Lifeguard. Roadie. Where and how to earn the money to subsidize your fun, usually in some exotic location full of very friendly women. At once a "How To," a "To Do," and a "We Did," Die Happy contains all the ideas, checklists, and insanely funny true stories you'll need to help you have as much fun as possible—while you still can.

With metal roller skates clamped on their shoes, three little girls stumble their way through a world of enormous changes. One girl lives in California, one lives in Illinois and the third lives in Wisconsin. It is the 1950s and even though they are separated by hundreds of miles their childhood experiences are similar, due to the influences of suburbia and television. By the time these girls trade their skates for VW Beetles their lives are completely different. They move from Bobby socks to panty hose, from sock hops to rock concerts, from wearing girdles to going braless. But the social changes are even more significant. It is a time of the Cold War, of Civil Rights, of war and protests. With humor and tenderness they address the issues of the time; from the trivial to the life-changing. Children don't have the context to recognize the meaning of time passing. We're in school; we're not in school. It's summer; it's winter. It's daytime; it's night. With a few holidays thrown in, we go through our early lives. The Boomer Broads look back to make sense of our personal yet shared times. With any luck we learn, and the vivid memories stay with us as lessons and stories. When we say, "Where did the time go?" we need only recall the stories.Professional storytellers, Sara Slayton, Terry Visger and Lynn Wing take you on a wild ride through the 1950s and 1960s. They alternately poke fun at and wax nostalgic for the way things were 'back then'. At the same time they look at how those past experiences influence who they are today. The Boomer Broads say, "If you are under 50 this book is a history lesson; if you are over 50 it is a walk down memory lane."

Young Money 4 Proven Actions to Design Your Wealth While You Still Can Being young is the ultimate advantage when it comes to building wealth. It may not seem like it when you look at your student loan debt or when the rent comes due, but you have a huge amount of a priceless resource: time. You just need to know what to do with it. Rising-star financial advisor Dasarte Yarnway offers a simple four-step mastery approach anyone can follow to become a Master Wealth Builder. It's a system he himself lives by. You start by mastering the right mindset, says Yarnway. You need to always remember that you're in it for the long haul—wealth building is a marathon, not a sprint—and keep your eyes and your actions firmly fixed on your wealth-building goals. Then you have to create and master your plan. Yarnway provides advice on avoiding four critical financial pitfalls and a worksheet so you can assess exactly where you are financially, where you want to go, and how you're going to get there. Once you have a plan, you have to start working that plan by mastering income—Yarnway looks at the three best ways to do that. With income handled, you have to master expenses. Yarnway offers seven simple ways you can control your outflows and discusses how you can minimize your tax burden while still handling your civic duties. If you start wealth building now instead of ten or twenty years from now, you can experiment, learn from mistakes, bounce back from setbacks, and steadily and consistently build up your legacy. As Yarnway quotes Warren Buffet, “Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree long ago.” The sooner you plant, the more shade you'll have.

The practical followup to the acclaimed bestseller In 2001, the groundbreaking book Quarterlife Crisis® addressed the unique and unsettling trials of entering modern adulthood. For the first time, it identified how twentysomethings were lost and confused, and lamented the absence of a guide-a roadmap with solutions for how to emerge from the crisis successful, happy, and sane. Now, the author of Quarterlife Crisis® delivers that roadmap. Alexandra Robbins goes beyond defining the problem of the quarterlife crisis and puts readers on the path to conquering it. She asks-and answers-the tough, soul-searching questions that keep young adults awake at night: - How do I weigh doing what I love versus making money? - Will I ever find my "soul mate"? - Why is it so hard to make friends? - Why are my twenties so different from what I expected? With new voices as well as follow-up interviews with some of the original Quarterlife Crisis® twentysomethings, Conquering Your Quarterlife Crisis® is the new go-to guide for people who want it all...but just aren't sure what that is yet.
