A story of inspiration and transformation for the really desperate housewife—now a TV series from the creator of Sex and the City, starring Sutton Foster and Hilary Duff! She’s old enough to be his mother. Alice has always looked young for her age, even with her graying hair and her dowdy New Jersey housewife style. Make that ex-housewife: Now that her husband’s gone and her daughter is grown, Alice is in desperate need of a whole new life. So she lets her best friend Maggie, a hip New York City artist, transform her on New Year’s Eve. Soon, thanks to the wonders of hair dye and tight jeans, Alice looks really young, as one night in a Manhattan bar confirms. At midnight, she kisses a boy who was in diapers when she was in high school. She’s having too much fun to care. The white lie Alice tells Josh gets her thinking that if no one asks her age, she doesn’t have to tell. So she applies for a job she had briefly before becoming a full-time mom—and gets it. Meanwhile, Josh is falling head over heels for Alice, who’s just way cooler than girls his age. He figures she’s about twenty-nine—and for the first time since she was twenty-nine, or possibly ever, Alice feels that life is ripe with possibility. Unfortunately one possibility is that she’s gonna get caught. Challenging the adage that the truth will set you free, Younger is a hilarious and insightful story that proves that you’re only as young as you feel.
James Joyce's Ulysses first appeared in print in the pages of an American avant-garde magazine, The Little Review, between 1918 and 1920. The novel many consider to be the most important literary work of the twentieth century was, at the time, deemed obscene and scandalous, resulting in the eventual seizure of The Little Review and the placing of a legal ban on Joyce's masterwork that would not be lifted in the United States until 1933. For the first time, The Little Review “Ulysses” brings together the serial installments of Ulysses to create a new edition of the novel, enabling teachers, students, scholars, and general readers to see how one of the previous century's most daring and influential prose narratives evolved, and how it was initially introduced to an audience who recognized its radical potential to transform Western literature. This unique and essential publication also includes essays and illustrations designed to help readers understand the rich contexts in which Ulysses first appeared and to trace the complex changes Joyce introduced after it was banned.

The scientific reality is that 90 per cent of the signs of ageing and disease are caused by lifestyle choices, not your genes. In other words, you have the capability to overcome and transform your genetic history and tendencies. Harvard/MIT-trained physician Sara Gottfried, M.D. has created a revolutionary 7-week programme that empowers us to make the critical choices necessary to not just look young, but also feel young. Dr. Gottfried identifies and builds this book around the five key factors that lead to accelerated aging: the muscle factor, the brain factor, the hormone factor, the gut factor, and the toxic fat factor. The 7-week program addresses these factors and treats them in an accessible and highly practical protocol. Dr. Gottfried’s programme makes it possible to change the way you age, stay younger longer, and remain healthy and vibrant for all of your days.
Â How to Train As If Your VERY LIFE Depended on Your Degree of REAL Strength, Power and Toughness Â Most physical training systems are designed for the domesticated human animal. That is to say, for us humans who live lives of such relative security that we cultivate our strength and power more out of pride and for a sense of accomplishment than out of an absolute need to survive in the wild. The professional athlete hones his body to function well in a sports event-rather than to emerge safe from a life-or-death struggle. And even those in our military and LEO rely more on the security of their weapons and armor than on their own personal, raw power and brute strength to carry the day. Â There remains one environment where exuding the necessary degree of authoritative strength and power can mean the difference between life or death: the maximum security prison. In maximum security, the predator preys on the weak like we breathe air. Intimidation is the daily currency. You either become a professional victim or you develop that supreme survival strength that signals the predator to stay at bay. Â Paul Wade spent 19 years in hell holes like San Quentin, Angola and Marion. He entered this world a gangly, terrorized weakling and he graduated to final freedom, pound-for-pound one of the strongest humans on the planet. Paul Wade dedicated his prison life to the cultivation of that supreme survival strength. And ironically, it is in America's prisons that we can find some of the great, lost secrets of how to get immensely powerful and strong. Paul Wade mined these secrets as if his life depended on it-and of course in many ways it did. Â Finally free, Paul Wade pays his debt to society-not just with the horrors of his years in the hole-but with the greatest gift he could possibly give us: a priceless set of progressions that can take ANYONE who has the will from abject weakling to strength specimen extraordinaire. Â InÂConvict ConditioningÂPaul Wade has laid out a logical and effective zero to hero progression in key bodyweight strength exercises and presented a solid training philosophy. Get this book. -Pavel Tsatsouline, author of The Naked Warrior Â Convict ConditioningÂgives honor and respect toÂbody-weightÂtraining.ÂI feel Convict ConditioningÂprovides the progression,ÂprecisionÂand clarity that is necessary toÂcombatÂour cultural decline in simple bodyÂknowledge. -Gray Cook,ÂMSPT, OCS, CSCS, Functional Movement Systems, author of Body in Balance Â Convict Conditioning is a fantastic text crammed with solid information, and tons of vital nuggets and powerful insights that when followed will pack your frame with rock-hard, functional muscle.

ÂThis is knowledge proven in extreme conditions. So respect the progressions and put in your time-you'll be stronger for it. -Brett Jones Master RKC, CSCS, CK-FMS Â Outstanding! By far the most innovative fitness book in years. Many talk about mastering your body weight yet Convict Conditioning actually delivers a blueprint for anyone, regardless of your current fitness. The training progressions are genius. ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ -Tim Larkin, Master Close Combat Instructor If you are a serious student of bodyweight exercise and physical culture, you must get this book. -Craig Ballantyne, Turbulence Training Â I LOVE IT. Convict Conditioning is probably the best compilation of callisthenic exercises and training progressions I have seen. Coach Wade goes to the heart of true training with correct biomechanics, kinesiology and training progressions that so many in the word of physical training just seem to miss these days. Bravo Coach, bravo, an epic book that deserves to be in the library of all who love the world of strength. ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ -Mark Reifkind, Master RKC Instructor, Girya Kettlebell Training Â Convict Conditioning is jam packed with the most powerful bodyweight training information I have ever come across. It's the book I WISH I had in my hands when I was a competitive wrestler, BUT, even more important to me is that I can pass on this knowledge to my clients AND my son and daughter when they grow up.

James Joyce used music and musical allusion in ways that no other writer has attempted. Ulysses alone contains more than 800 song references, many as dependent upon music as lyrics. In these retrospective essays, Zack Bowen, the leading expert on Joyce and music, describes this bond between music and Joyce's fiction, explaining how musical allusions inform both individual passages and the theme or structure of entire works.

Professor Bowen s book is more than a simple collection of musical allusions; it is an engaging discussion of how Joyce uses music to expand and orchestrate his major themes. The introductions to the separate sections, on each of Joyce s works, express a new and cohesive critical theory and reevaluate the major thematic patterns in the works. The introductory material proceeds to analyze the general workings of music in each particular book. The specific musical references follow, accompanied by their sources and an examination of the role each plays in the work. While the author considers the early works with equal care, the bulk of this volume explores the musical resonances of Ulysses, especially as they affect the style, structure, characterization, and themes. Like motifs in Wagnerian opera, some allusions introduce and later remind us of characters bits of Molly s songs for instance constantly intrude her impending adultery on Bloom s consciousness. Other motifs are linked to concerns such as Stephen s Oedipal guilt over his mother s death, which in turn connects to his preoccupation with Shakespeare, the creator, the father, and the cuckold. Music helps create the bond which briefly joins Stephen and Bloom, and music augments the entire grand theme of consubstantiality. Professor Bowen s style is simple and clear, allowing Joycean artifice to speak for itself. The volume includes a bibliography."
In this study Karen Lawrence presents Joyce's Ulysses as it evolves through radical changes of style. She traces the abandonment of a narrative norm for a series of rhetorical masks, regarded as conscious aesthetic experiments, and considers the theoretical implication of this process, for both the writing and reading of novels.
