“Incisive wit . . . a sleuth worthy of comparison to Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot or Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone.”—James W. Hall Diana O’Hehir beguiled audiences with I Wish This War Were Over, runner-up for the Pulitzer Prize. Now, she presents a mystery set in that most shadowy of landscapes: the human mind. Green Beach Manor, set on the jagged cliffs of the California coast, calls itself “A Colony for Independently Functioning Adults.” It costs a pretty penny—and Carla Day is confident that her affectionate-but-confused elderly father is getting the best care there. An accomplished former Egyptologist, he now lives in a fusion of past and present. The staff hasn’t a clue what he’s ranting about—and they’re ready to send him to what they privately call No Hope House. Then a string of suspicious events unravels. A fire starts inexplicably in the beauty parlor, and some drugs go missing. Carla, hoping to keep a close eye on her dad, lands a job as an aide at the Manor. But management has one condition: Spy for us, figure out who’s doing this—and you and your father can stay. Soon, a guest swallows glass hidden in her food. An employee dies an eerie death. And Carla’s father begins rambling not only about Egyptian pyramids, but also about a dead woman on the nearby beach. The answer may lie in an ancient Egyptian tomb. Or maybe it’s somewhere further—in the deep recesses of a brilliant old man’s memory. “One of the most intellectually delightful murder mysteries ever written . . . The narrating voice is a pleasure from beginning to end, and the reader comes away with an education in ancient Egyptology!”—Vivian Gornick, author of Fierce Attachments

What impressed me most...are the intricate and artistic detail with which Art describes the settings and the depth and sensitivity of the emotions expressed in each memoir. Reba Boyd Wooden, Executive Director, Center for Inquiry, Indiana A retired psychologist shares over eighty poignant, humorous, and entertaining memoirs highlighting his life, from his birth at home in Hudson Falls, New York, to his current experiences as a widower and freethinker. Arthur L. Sterne, Ph.D. has spent his life curious about people and as a result, many of his memoirs reflect his power of keen observation and wonderful sense of humor. His compilation of anecdotes begins with his early life in Jacksonville, Florida, then with his experiences at Vanderbilt University where he met Ann, a nursing student who stole his heart and later became his wife of forty-four years, and continues in Indianapolis, where he once saw Judy Garland and Marlene Dietrich perform. As he moves through the retelling of his favorite memories, Sterne covers such relatable topics as politics, religion, aging, and rebuilding a life after the death of a spouse. In Things I Know or Think I Know or Thought I Knew or Who Knows? Sterne encourages others to think, pose questions and look for answers, ultimately viewing the world in a new light.

Have you been brainwashed to believe that acquiring the material trappings of success will lead to emotional fulfillment? Do you find it difficult to lead a gratifying life in this commercial, brand-name-focused world? Have you ever been seduced into thinking that too much of one thing isn't enough? Don't get caught up in this dangerous success trap. Instead of fulfilling your dreams, it'll leave you feeling empty -- and often betrayed. In Beating the Success Trap, leading negotiation expert and motivational speaker Ed Brodow shares his vision for how you can live a significant, rewarding life: His formula for success is success on your own terms. One of the first major works to challenge traditional notions of success, Beating the Success Trap explains how to: Redefine success to coincide with your own temperament and preferences Overcome your fears about making constructive changes in your life Defeat the abusive voice inside your head that wants you to feel like a failure Reevaluate your life and reconnect with your passion and enthusiasm Create the life you've always wanted Brodow argues that it doesn't matter how much you earn, how much you possess, or how many trophies you have won. To be truly successful is to be able to say: "I spend my time doing what is meaningful to me." You will learn why: Failure is often better than success Many people are happier without fame and fortune Getting fired can be the best thing that ever happened to you Changing careers is good for you Following your bliss is better than following the herd Brodow has taken the skills of business negotiation, amplified by his and others' personal experiences, and translated them into the tools people need to maximize their quality of life. Beating the Success Trap will help you attract the lifestyle that will make you truly content with your self, your life, and your place in the world.
