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.

Roger Dale Loring is a genuine baby boomer who finds his existence in the rapidly-changing world rather perplexing. In his latest book, he once again offers a collection of lighthearted essays about his dilemmas from the perspective of his current “if-they-don’t-have-a-senior-discount, I’m-not-going-there” age. Realizing that the aging process evolved in a way that his adolescent mind never envisioned, Loring now finds that his views on life changes are disturbingly similar to the views of the old people of his youth, people he frequently characterized as old fogies. His essays highlight his humorous take on life that include opinions about issues such as cell phone upgrades; a man’s attention span while operating a television remote; seasonal purse shopping; the differing conversation patterns of men and women; the three hardest part-time jobs in America; the crazy world of politics where preaching to the choir dominates all campaigns; and, of course, the trauma of buying toothpaste.

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.

Robert Lowell once remarked, "When Elizabeth Bishop's letters are published (as they will be), she will be recognized as not only one of the best, but one of the most prolific writers of our century." One Art is the magificent confirmation of Lowell's prediction. From several thousand letters, written by Bishop over fifty years—from 1928, when she was seventeen, to the day of her death, in Boston in 1979—Robert Giroux, the poet's longtime friend and editor, has selected over five hundred missives for this volume. In a way, the letters comprise Bishop's autobiography, and Giroux has greatly enhanced them with his own detailed, candid, and highly informative introduction. One Art takes us behind Bishop's formal sophistication and reserve, fully displaying the gift for friendship, the striving for perfection, and the passionate, questing, rigorous spirit that made her a great artist.
