<p><strong>Jessica reveals for the first time her inner monologue and most intimate struggles. Guided by the journals she's kept since age fifteen, and brimming with her unique humor and down-to-earth humanity,聽<em>Open Book</em>聽is as inspiring as it is entertaining.</strong></p><p>This was supposed to be a very different book. Five years ago, Jessica Simpson was approached to write a motivational guide to living your best life. She walked away from the offer, and nobody understood why. The truth is that she didn鈥檛 want to lie.</p><p>Jessica couldn鈥檛 be authentic with her readers if she wasn鈥檛 fully honest with herself first.</p><p>Now America鈥檚 Sweetheart, preacher鈥檚 daughter, pop phenomenon, reality tv pioneer, and the billion-dollar fashion mogul invites readers on a remarkable journey, examining a life that blessed her with the compassion to help others, but also burdened her with an almost crippling need to please.聽<em>Open Book聽</em>is Jessica Simpson using her voice, heart, soul, and humor to share things she鈥檚 never shared before.</p><p>First celebrated for her voice, she became one of the most talked-about women in the world, whether for music and fashion, her relationship struggles, or as a walking blonde joke. But now, instead of being聽<em>talked</em>聽<em>about</em>, Jessica is doing the talking. Her book shares the wisdom and inspirations she鈥檚 learned and shows the real woman behind all the pop-culture clich茅鈥檚 鈥?鈥渃hicken or fish,鈥?鈥淒aisy Duke,鈥?"football jinx," 鈥渕om jeans,鈥?鈥渟exual napalm鈥︹€?and more.聽<em>Open Book</em>聽is an opportunity to laugh and cry with a close friend, one that will inspire you to live your best, most authentic life, now that she is finally living hers.</p>

<p>Carly Simon's <i>New York Times</i> bestselling memoir, <i>Boys in the Trees</i>, reveals her remarkable life, beginning with her storied childhood as the third daughter of Richard L. Simon, the co-founder of publishing giant Simon & Schuster, her musical debut as half of The Simon Sisters performing folk songs with her sister Lucy in Greenwich Village, to a meteoric solo career that would result in 13 top 40 hits, including the #1 song "You're So Vain." She was the first artist in history to win a Grammy Award, an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award, for her song "Let the River Run" from the movie <i>Working Girl</i>. </p><p>The memoir recalls a childhood enriched by music and culture, but also one shrouded in secrets that would eventually tear her family apart. Simon brilliantly captures moments of creative inspiration, the sparks of songs, and the stories behind writing "Anticipation" and "We Have No Secrets" among many others. Romantic entanglements with some of the most famous men of the day fueled her confessional lyrics, as well as the unraveling of her storybook marriage to James Taylor.</p>

<p><b>INSTANT #1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER</b><br /><b></b><br /><b>In his first and only official autobiography, music icon Elton John reveals the truth about his extraordinary life, from his rollercoaster lifestyle as shown in the film <i>Rocketman</i>, to becoming a living legend.</b></p><p>Christened Reginald Dwight, he was a shy boy with Buddy Holly glasses who grew up in the London suburb of Pinner and dreamed of becoming a pop star. By the age of twenty-three he was performing his first gig in America, facing an astonished audience in his bright yellow dungarees, a star-spangled T-shirt, and boots with wings. Elton John had arrived and the music world would never be the same again.</p><p>His life has been full of drama, from the early rejection of his work with song-writing partner Bernie Taupin to spinning out of control as a chart-topping superstar; from half-heartedly trying to drown himself in his LA swimming pool to disco-dancing with Princess Diana and Queen Elizabeth; from friendships with John Lennon, Freddie Mercury, and George Michael to setting up his AIDS Foundation to conquering Broadway with <i>Aida</i>, <i>The Lion King</i>, and <i>Billy Elliot the Musical</i>. All the while Elton was hiding a drug addiction that would grip him for over a decade.</p><p>In <i>Me</i>, Elton also writes powerfully about getting clean and changing his life, about finding love with David Furnish and becoming a father. In a voice that is warm, humble, and open, this is Elton on his music and his relationships, his passions and his mistakes. This is a story that will stay with you by a living legend.</p>

<b><i>New York Times </i>Bestseller</b><b>A #1 <i>LA Times</i> Bestseller</b><b>A <i>USA Today</i> Bestseller</b><b>One of NPR's "Favorite Books of 2019"</b><b><br /></b><b>The iconic bassist and co-founder of the Red Hot Chili Peppers tells his fascinating origin story, complete with all the dizzying highs and the gutter lows you'd want from an LA street rat turned world famous rock star.</b><br /><br />In <i>Acid for the Children</i>, Flea takes readers on a deeply personal and revealing tour of his formative years, spanning from Australia to the New York City suburbs to, finally, Los Angeles. Through hilarious anecdotes, poetical meditations, and occasional flights of fantasy, Flea deftly chronicles the experiences that forged him as an artist, a musician, and a young man. His dreamy, jazz-inflected prose makes the Los Angeles of the 1970s and 80s come to gritty, glorious life, including the potential for fun, danger, mayhem, or inspiration that lurked around every corner. It is here that young Flea, looking to escape a turbulent home, found family in a community of musicians, artists, and junkies who also lived on the fringe. He spent most of his time partying and committing petty crimes. But it was in music where he found a higher meaning, a place to channel his frustration, loneliness, and love. This left him open to the life-changing moment when he and his best friends, soul brothers, and partners-in-mischief came up with the idea to start their own band, which became the Red Hot Chili Peppers. <br /><br /><i>Acid for the Children</i> is the debut of a stunning new literary voice, whose prose is as witty, entertaining, and wildly unpredictable as the author himself. It's a tenderly evocative coming-of-age story and a raucous love letter to the power of music and creativity from one of the most renowned musicians of our time.<br />

<b>This memoir by David Cassidy tells the real story behind his phenomenal 鈥?0s stardom鈥攁nd the sadness that shadowed it.

The critics blasted it鈥攂ut TV viewers loved it! And the young female audience especially loved Keith Partridge. Not only did they tune in each week, they bought The Partridge Family鈥檚 hit single, 鈥淚 Think I Love You,鈥?in the millions, and plastered David鈥檚 image on their bedroom walls. Throughout the early seventies, David Cassidy was a phenomenon.<br /> 聽<br /> In this wry, witty memoir, he recounts not only those wild youthful years and Hollywood relationships鈥攚ith, among others, stepmom Shirley Jones, costar Susan Dey, actress Meredith Baxter, and two guest stars who soon found greater fame on <i>Charlie鈥檚 Angels</i>鈥攂ut also the darker parts of his life as well. David delves into his painful family history and his childhood in West Orange, New Jersey, and the groupies and drugs he indulged in as his success began to overwhelm him. He also shares his encounters with the icons of the era鈥擫ennon and McCartney, Elvis, the Beach Boys, and more. Most of all, he takes us back to a time when the world seemed more innocent鈥攁t least until the camera stopped rolling.<br /> 聽<br /><i>Includes a new afterword about David鈥檚 final years by friend and coauthor Chip Deffaa.</i><br /> 聽<br /> 鈥淎 chatty read about becoming an overnight success and all the trappings that came with it: <i>Tiger Beat</i> magazine, sold-out stadium shows, hit records, willing girls in every hotel lobby.鈥?鈥?lt;i>Star Tribune</i><br /> 聽

Our brains are doing our best to help us out, but they can be real assholes sometimes. Sometimes it seems like your own brain is out to get you鈥攎elting down in the middle of the grocery store, picking fights with your date, getting you addicted to something, or shutting down completely at the worst possible moments. You already told your brain firmly that it isn't good to do these things. But your brain has a mind of its own. That's where this book comes in. With humor, patience, and lots of swearing, Dr. Faith shows you the science behind what's going on in your skull and talks you through the process of retraining your brain to respond appropriately to the non-emergencies of everyday life. If you're working to deal with old traumas, or if you just want to have a more measured and chill response to situations you face all the time, this book can help you put the pieces of the puzzle together and get your life and brain back.Here's an excerpt from the book:Knowing what鈥檚 going on up in your brain is HUGE. So much of how we interact with the world around us is a completely normal response when we take into account our past experiences and how our brains work. 鈥?Freaking the fuck out 鈥?Avoiding important shit we need to take care of 鈥?Feeling pissed off all the time 鈥?Being a dick to people we care about 鈥?Putting shit in our bodies that we know isn鈥檛 good for us 鈥?Doing shit we know is dumb or pointlessNone of these things are fucking helpful. But they all make sense.Your brain has adapted to the circumstances in your life and started doing things to protect you, bless it. It鈥檚 not TRYING to fuck you over (even though it totally is, at times).As we navigate the world, nasty shit happens. The brain stores info about the nasty shit to try to avoid it in the future. Sometimes these responses are helpful. Sometimes the responses become a bigger problem than the actual problem was. It鈥檚 called a trauma reaction.And even if you aren鈥檛 dealing with a specific trauma? Adaptive coping strategies, bad habits, and funky behaviors all wire in similar ways. And research is showing that these issues are actually some of the easier ones to treat in therapy 鈥?if we address what鈥檚 really going on, rather than just the symptoms.

<b><i>Bestselling author Lisa Suzanne's newest standalone romantic comedy features rock stars, a best friend's older brother, and an accidental Vegas wedding.</i></b><br /><br />I've never seen Emily Clarke as anything more than my little sister's best friend.<br /><br />One drunken mistake later, she's my wife.<br /><br />My first thought is how to get out of this, except our wedding video has gone viral and record sales are skyrocketing. My manager thinks following the newlyweds on the second season of my band's reality show will keep up the momentum.<br /><br />I just have to get Emily to agree to faking this marriage for six months, and then we can quietly divorce.<br /><br />Right?<br /><br />Wrong.<br /><br />Nothing is quite that simple when feelings blur the line between a contract and reality.<br /><br />I ended up with more than just a hangover when I found myself waking up married.
