Crash: When Grief and Gratitude Collide

Carolyn Roy-Bornstein M.D.

After 25 years of caring for children, pediatrician Carolyn Roy-Bornstein finds herself on the other side of the stretcher when her 17-year-old son Neil is hit by a teenage drunk driver while walking his girlfriend Trista home after a study date. Trista does not survive.

Gratitude for her son’s life soon gives way to grief. While initially told Neil’s only injury was a broken leg, Roy-Bornstein quickly finds herself riding in an ambulance bringing her son to hospital; his brain is bleeding.  Roy-Bornstein is now not the patient’s doctor or nurse but his mother. The world she so easily navigated in a white coat now must be dealt with from the other side of the stretcher.  In these pages she explores all of these boundaries: between then and now, grief at her changed son and gratitude that he’s still living. Her many years as a medical insider don’t overcome her newcomer status as the parent of a trauma victim.

Dr. Carolyn Roy-Bornstein is an award-winning writer who also a widely recognized pediatrician.  She writes a monthly health column, Pediatric Points, in the national newsletter Pediatrics for Parents. She was recently contacted by Bonnie Fuller (former editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan and Glamour), to offer pediatric opinions on the new website www.hollywoodlife.com when needed. She is also an ambassador with the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts, giving speeches to civic groups, schools and businesses, and her professional work has appeared in the Journal of the American Medical Association and more than a dozen other periodicals.

You Saved Me, Too: What a Holocaust Survivor Taught Me about Living, Dying, Fighting, Loving, and Swearing in Yiddish

Susan Kushner Resnick


“Resnick's humor, elegant writing, and almost Anne Frank-like combination of sweetness and sassiness made this the first Holocaust-related book I have enjoyed, or could even bear to read, in many decades.”

—Marion Winik, author of The Glen Rock Book of the Dead, and First Comes Love

When Sue met Aron she suffered from postpartum depression. Aron, a Holocaust survivor, laughed more than she did, and she was drawn to his cheerfulness. With beautiful prose, Resnick alternates between details of Aron’s life as a concentration camp inmate with their current unique friendship. The dramatic tension builds when Sue promises to be there at Aron’s death.


Susan Kushner Resnick teaches creative nonfiction at Brown University. She is the author of Sleepless Days and Goodbye Wifes and Daughters, which won a gold medal for nonfiction from the Independent Publisher’s Book Awards. She has written for The New York Times magazine and The Boston Globe.

Health and Self-Help

You Are WHY You Eat: Change Your Food Attitude, Change Your Life

Dr. Ramani Durvasula

You Are WHY You Eat is not a cookbook. It asks readers to look at their relationship with food. If you are gorging and numbing yourself with food, are you doing the same thing in life? What if you could find a way to stop eating, stop working at a bad job, stop a bad relationship before you walk down the aisle—stop anything when you are full? Understanding WHY you eat can lead to real and lasting change--both in your weight loss and all other areas of your life. Dr. Ramani takes a brave, edgy, and witty approach to self-help. She forces you to take responsibility for your choices in life. Through real-life anecdotes and exercises, she helps people live lives that are braver, more authentic, and less riddled with regret.

   


Dr. Ramani Durvasula has appeared in two reality TV shows and is currently filming her own show for Oxygen. She has also appeared on Dr. Oz, Dr. Drew's Lifechangers, and Anderson Cooper and in Allure, Glamour, Marie Claire, Redbook, and more. She is a Professor of Psychology at California State University, Los Angeles, and she has a private practice. Visit her at www.doctor-ramani.com.

Childcare and Parenting

The Genius in Every Child: Encouraging Character, Creativity, and Curiosity in Children

Rick Ackerly

“Rick Ackerly’s journey through the travails and triumphs of parenting both as a parent and as a principal/father-confessor to parents is captured exquisitely in this book. . . . A vivid portrayal of how smart parents let their children discover their own genius and path.” —Pat Bassett, President, National Association of Independent Schools

 

“Drawing on a lifetime of experience with children, Rick Ackerly has written a lively, engaging, practical book that captures the dilemmas and joys of raising and schooling children.” —Robert Evans, Ed.D., clinical and organizational psychologist and author of Family Matters


 

“The accounts and learnings in The Genius in Every Child are so deep and layered, you feel in your bones Rick Ackerly’s forty years of teaching kids and parents how to grow their brilliance. This book, and Rick, have so much heart and wisdom, you’ll not only read their words gratefully, you’ll return to them again and again. This just might be the only book on parenting you’ll ever need.” —Rebecca Lawton, author of Reading Water: Lessons from the River

Genius is not just about intelligence, it's also about what sets the soul on fire—finding the innate joy in and aptitude for a topic. Finding that genius can set the course for a happy, productive life for a child. In a series of anecdotes, a former principal and father shares these turning points, both inside and outside the classroom. This book urges parents to shift the focus from test scores to enthusiasm, from perfect behavior to taking responsibility and learning from mistakes.

Rick Ackerly is a nationally recognized educator and speaker with 45 years of experience working in schools. He has served as headmaster of four independent schools. His work has been endorsed by the Montessori Schools, and he speaks at numerous education conferences around the US. His articles have appeared in The New York Times, Multicultural Education, Education Week, and others.

The Kid in the Crib: A Dr. Seuss Parody

Lex Friedman and Felix Jason Schlater

A children’s book for adults in the vein of the mega-bestselling Go the F**k to Sleep, The Kid in the Crib brilliantly re-imagines the Dr. Seuss classic, The Cat in the Hat, for beleaguered parents struggling with the anxieties and challenges of parenting in the 21st century. It substitutes the typical worries, frustrations, and challenges of modern parenting for Seuss's original story about a kindly creature and the child he befriends. It lays out the daily power struggle between parents as they each insist that it's the other one's turn to deal with the befouled diaper, and the bleary-headedness that coincides with an infant's sleeping patterns.

The kid spat up white

The kid spat up green

The kid spat up more spit up

Than we'd ever seen.


This pitch-perfect parody—expertly illustrated by graphic designer Felix Schlater—paints an honest portrait of parenting that will have moms and dads nodding in recognition and howling with laughter. And it is a story that parents will delight in reading, both to each other and even to their kids someday.

Lex Friedman writes news, reviews, tutorials, and opinion pieces for Macworld and Macworld.com. He is the author of The Snuggie Sutra book and website, which was featured on The Today Show and Conan O'Brien. Felix Jason Schlater is a graphic designer and illustrator.

From the Links: Golf's Most Memorable Moments

Joshua Shifrin
It’s a golf hall of fame, shame, and arcane. Collected in this handsome volume are more than one hundred of golf’s greatest moments—from the famous to the long forgotten—from the links of Scotland in the 1800s to the 2010 Masters, and even to the little known Martini Invitational in 1971… and starring the giants of the game down to the struggling pros and amateurs. Told in a whimsical fashion, these are stories of triumph, amazing holes-in-one and other feats, hilarious gaffes, classic matchups, heart-racing final rounds, trailblazing careers, monumental breakdowns, and other incredible events no reader will ever forget.
If he had been able to master his short game, Dr. Joshua Shifrin might have made a living at golf rather than earning a PhD in psychology. Nevertheless, he loves the game and is still thrilled when he manages to make a knee-knocker putt in his weekend game.

Carter's Way: A No-Nonsense Method for Designing Your Own Super Stylish Home

Carter Oosterhouse with Chris Peterson

Carter Oosterhouse knows how intimidating home design can be to a non-specialist. With a reassuring, “you can do it” attitude, he shows readers how to create realistic designs that they can implement with basic tools and a little DIY experience. His mission is to bring imaginations to life. The materials he uses are easily found, budget-conscious, and whenever possible are environmentally friendly.  Specific examples are illustrated with stunning photos.

I’m writing this book because of all the people who come up to me at events, or write me, saying things like, “I wish I could make my kitchen look like the one on your last show,” or, “If only I could have you work on my living room!” You don’t need me in person. You don’t need anybody else. You need my perspective and my method. My method is what I call “Carter’s Way.” It’s a process that has worked for me in dozens of different rooms and homes. Now I want it to work for you!

 

Carter Oosterhouse is the host of HGTV's Carter Can, Million Dollar Rooms, and Red, Hot & Green. He has also been a contributor to the Today show and regularly appears on The Rachael Ray Show. Visit him at www.carteroosterhouse.com. Chris Peterson has written extensively on the subject of home improvement and home design. A list of his work can be found at www.petersonink.com.

Iconic Spirits: An Intoxicating History

Mark Spivak

Over the past decade, the cocktail culture has exploded, with bartenders resurrecting classic cocktails and dazzling customers with their creations. Consumers are recreating these cocktails at home, spending huge amounts on upscale bar gear. Craft distilling has become popular as an offshoot of the locavore movement. In Iconic Spirits, Mark Spivak, host of the NPR show Uncorked!, explores the history of 12 iconic spirits, revealing how moonshine invented stock car racing; how gin almost toppled the British Empire; how a drink that tastes like castor oil flavored with tree bark became one of the sexiest things; how cognac became the "it" drink of hip-hop culture, and more. Spivak then offers tantalizing cocktail recipes from the era in which each spirit was invented.


Mark Spivak is the host of a weekly show call Uncorked! on WXEL-FM, the NPR affiliate for the Palm Beaches and South Florida. His website, Spivak On Wine, features winery profiles, reviews of restaurants in the U.S. and abroad, and reviews of wines and spirits.

Ride, Cowboy, Ride!

Baxter Black

 

This hilarious new novel by America’s favorite cowboy poet, Baxter Black, offers a funny, fast-paced inside look at the lives of rodeo cowboys and the women they love--or that they want to love. Cooney Bedlam is a saddle bronc rider and bull rider who has just fallen in love with the indefatigable Pica DeTroiT, but every time he tries to win her affections, he makes a fool of himself. When she's accused of illegal trafficking in endangered species, after being set up by the diabolical Oui Oui Reese, Cooney and his traveling partner, Straight Line, pull out all the stops to try to prove her innocence and to compete at the National Finals Rodeo.


Baxter Black is known to millions for his insights as America’s Cowboy Poet and as a large-animal veterinarian. He would still be a practicing vet if, in his words, “cowboy poetry had not hijacked my life.” His books include The Back Page: The Best of Baxter Black from Western Horseman, and Hey, Cowboy, Wanna Get Lucky?

A Dog Named Leaf: The Hero from Heaven Who Saved My Life

Allen Anderson with Linda Anderson

Allen and Linda Anderson adopted an abandoned, traumatized year-old cocker spaniel. Soon, the troubled dog they named “Leaf” turned their home into a war zone, and Leaf’s emotional issues overwhelmed the couple. Shortly after Leaf’s arrival, Allen, who had spent eight years as a big city police officer and survived so many close calls that Linda called him “Miracle Man,” received a diagnosis from his doctor that made him think his luck had finally run out. Allen had a not-yet-ruptured brain aneurysm that could be fatal, and the surgery to repair it might leave him debilitated. Having seen his father live for years with the effects of a massive stroke, he dreaded that the worst fate might not be death. But he and Leaf, like comrades facing the ultimate battle, would be there for each other, with the miracle of this man and this dog coming together at exactly the right time.
