Customer Reviews
When Ada Calhoun found herself in the throes of a midlife crisis, she thought that she had no right to complain. She was married with children and a good career. So why did she feel miserable? And why did it seem that other Generation X women were miserable, too?<br /><br />Calhoun decided to find some answers. She looked into housing costs, HR trends, credit card debt averages, and divorce data. At every turn, she saw a pattern: sandwiched between the Boomers and the Millennials, Gen X women were facing new problems as they entered middle age, problems that were being largely overlooked.<br /><br />Speaking with women across America about their experiences as the generation raised to 鈥渉ave it all,鈥?Calhoun found that most were exhausted, terrified about money, under-employed, and overwhelmed. Instead of their issues being heard, they were told instead to lean in, take 鈥渕e-time,鈥?or make a chore chart to get their lives and homes in order.<br /><br />In <i>Why We Can鈥檛 Sleep</i>, Calhoun opens up the cultural and political contexts of Gen X鈥檚 predicament and offers solutions for how to pull oneself out of the abyss鈥攁nd keep the next generation of women from falling in. The result is reassuring, empowering, and essential reading for all middle-aged women, and anyone who hopes to understand them.<br />

<b>Delivering inspiration and "parenting comedy at its finest,"* here is one woman's story of ditching her fairytale dreams and falling in love with her unpredictable, chaotic, imperfect life</b><br /><br />Kristina Kuzmic has made herself a household name, speaking directly to mothers from the trenches of parenthood via her viral videos and social media presence. She is now bringing her message of self-acceptance, resilience, and joy to book readers. With a refreshingly unpretentious, funny, and galvanizing voice, Kuzmic goes behind the scenes to reveal how she went from broke and defeated to unshakably grounded and brimming with thankfulness. Illuminating the hard-won wisdom from a life always spent one step behind--whether it was as a high school student new to America, a suddenly single mother to two kids, remarried and juggling two teens and a toddler, or the unexpected recipient of Oprah's attention and investment--<i>Hold On, But Don't Hold Still </i>is the book every mother needs to reassure her that she's not only fine just as she is, but that she already has more tools and support than she can possibly imagine. Sparkling with wit, this heartfelt memoir is like a long coffee date with a best friend, or the eleventh-hour text message that gives you just the boost you need to get through the night.<br /><br />*<i>The Huffington Post</i><br /><br /><b>A VIKING LIFE TITLE</b>

<b>"<i>Indistractable</i> provides a framework that will deliver the focus you need to get results."</b><br />- James Clear, author of <i>Atomic Habits</i><br /><br />You sit down at your desk to work on an important project, but a notification on your phone interrupts your morning. Later, as you're about to get back to work, a colleague taps you on the shoulder to chat. At home, screens get in the way of quality time with your family. Another day goes by, and once again, your most important personal and professional goals are put on hold.<br /><br />What would be possible if you followed through on your best intentions? What could you accomplish if you could stay focused and overcome distractions? What if you had the power to become "indistractable?"<br /><br />International bestselling author, former Stanford lecturer, and behavioral design expert, Nir Eyal, wrote Silicon Valley's handbook for making technology habit-forming. Five years after publishing <i>Hooked</i>, Eyal reveals distraction's Achilles' heel in his groundbreaking new book.<br /><br />In <i>Indistractable</i>, Eyal reveals the hidden psychology driving us to distraction. He describes why solving the problem is not as simple as swearing off our devices: Abstinence is impractical and often makes us want more.<br /><br />Eyal lays bare the secret of finally doing what you say you will do with a four-step, research-backed model. <i>Indistractable </i>reveals the key to getting the best out of technology, without letting it get the best of us.<br /><br />Inside, Eyal overturns conventional wisdom and reveals:<br /><ul><li>Why distraction at work is a symptom of a dysfunctional company culture--and how to fix it</li><br /><li>What really drives human behavior and why "time management is pain management"</li><br /><li>Why your relationships (and your sex life) depend on you becoming indistractable</li><br /><li>How to raise indistractable children in an increasingly distracting world</li></ul>Empowering and optimistic, <i>Indistractable </i>provides practical, novel techniques to control your time and attention--helping you live the life you really want.

<p><strong><em>NEW YORK TIMES</em> BESTSELLER</strong></p><p><strong>The author of the groundbreaking <em>New York Times</em> bestsellers <em>Girls & Sex</em> and <em>Cinderella Ate My Daughter</em> now turns her focus to the sexual lives of young men, once again offering 鈥渂oth an examination of sexual culture and a guide on how to improve it鈥?(<em>Washington Post</em>).</strong><br /></p><p>Peggy Orenstein鈥檚 <em>Girls & Sex</em>聽broke ground, shattered taboos, and launched conversations about young women鈥檚 right to pleasure and agency in sexual encounters. It also had an unexpected effect on its author: Orenstein realized that talking about girls is only half the conversation. Boys are subject to the same cultural forces as girls鈥攕teeped in the same distorted media images and binary stereotypes of female sexiness and toxic masculinity鈥攚hich equally affect how they navigate sexual and emotional relationships. In聽<em>Boys & Sex,</em>聽Peggy Orenstein dives back into the lives of young people to once again give voice to the unspoken, revealing how young men understand and negotiate the new rules of physical and emotional intimacy.</p><p>Drawing on comprehensive interviews with young men, psychologists, academics, and experts in the field, <em>Boys & Sex</em> dissects so-called locker room talk; how the word 鈥渉ilarious鈥?robs boys of empathy; pornography as the new sex education; boys鈥?understanding of hookup culture and consent; and their experience as both victims and perpetrators of sexual violence. By surfacing young men鈥檚 experience in all its complexity, Orenstein is able to unravel the hidden truths, hard lessons, and important realities of young male sexuality in today鈥檚 world. The result is a provocative and paradigm-shifting work that offers a much-needed vision of how boys can truly move forward as better men.</p>
