Pub Date: Jun 1, 2011 | Author: Michael F. Roizen and Mehmet Oz | Publisher: Free Press

A few years ago, we wrote YOU: The Owner’s Manual, which taught people about the inner workings of their bodies—and how to keep them running strong. But you know what? There’s a big difference between an adult’s body and your body, between adults’ health mysteries and your health mysteries, between their questions and your questions. So, teens, this book is for Read more »

The Last Gunfight by Jeff Guinn

Pub Date: May 1, 2011 | Author: Jeff Guinn | Publisher: Simon & Schuster

On the afternoon of October 26, 1881, in a vacant lot in Tombstone, Arizona, a confrontation between eight armed men erupted in a deadly shootout. The gunfight at the O.K. Corral shaped how future generations came to view the old West. Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, and the Clantons became the stuff of legends, symbolic of a West populated by good guys in white hats and villains in black ones, and where law enforcement largely consisted of sheriffs and outlaws facing off at high noon on the main streets of dusty, desolate towns where every man packed at least one six-shooter on his hips. It’s colorful stuff—but the truth is even better Read more »

Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

Pub Date: Apr 1, 2011 | Author: Isaac Marion | Publisher: Simon & Schuster

R is a young man with an existential crisis–he is a zombie. He shuffles through an America destroyed by war, social collapse, and the mindless hunger of his undead comrades, but he craves something more than blood and brains.

Game Frame by Aaron Dignan

Pub Date: Apr 1, 2011 | Author: Aaron Dignan | Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Ever wonder why teens can spend entire weekends playing video games but struggle with just one hour of homework?

The Truth About Grief by Ruth Davis Konigsberg

Pub Date: Jan 1, 2011 | Author: Ruth Davis Konigsberg | Publisher: Simon & Schuster

The five stages of grief are so deeply imbedded in our culture that no American can escape them. Every time we experience loss-a personal or national one-we hear them recited: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. The stages are invoked to explain everything from how we will recover from the death of a loved one to a sudden environmental catastrophe or to the trading away of a basketball star. But the stunning fact is that there is no validity to the stages that were proposed by psychiatrist Elisabeth KÜbler-Ross more than forty years ago Read more »
