A collection of poignant, relatable essays from the author of Never Have I Ever about coming out in her late twenties, entering into her first relationship, and figuring out what it means to be an adult. When Katie Heaney published her first book of essays, chronicling her singledom up to age twenty-five, she was still waiting to meet the right guy. Three years later, a lot changed. For one thing, she met the right girl. Here, for the first time, Katie opens up about realizing at the age of twenty-eight that she is gay. In these poignant, funny essays, she wrestles with her shifting sexuality and identity, and describes what it was like coming out to everyone she knows (and everyone she doesn’t). As she revisits her past, looking for any “clues” that might have predicted this outcome, Katie reveals that life doesn’t always move directly from point A to point B—no matter how much we would like it to. In a warm and relatable voice, Katie tackles everything from the trials of dating in New York City to the growing pains of her first relationship, from obsessing over Harry Styles (because, actually, he does look a bit like a lesbian) to learning to accept herself all over again. Exploring love and sexuality with her neurotic wit and endearing intimacy, Katie Heaney shares the message that it’s never too late to find love–or yourself. Advance praise for Would You Rather? “Would You Rather? is an extraordinarily generous and affecting book. Katie Heaney has written something with a remarkable amount of room in it—enough for anyone to spread out and connect with. It’s deeply felt, clear-eyed, joyful, and illuminating.”—Mallory Ortberg, author of Texts from Jane Eyre: And Other Conversations with Your Favorite Literary Characters “Whether you’re single or in a relationship, whether you’re queer, straight, or questioning, whether or not you’re partial to Harry Styles—you will discover something relatable and self-affirming in this honest, heartfelt, hilarious memoir.”—Camille Perri, author of The Assistants “What does it mean to find yourself, to know who you are and walk boldly in that truth? Would You Rather? takes readers on that journey along with Katie, reveling in the relief and glee of finding your tribe and frolicking in the exquisite joy of being a woman who loves women.”—Jenna Wortham, staff writer at The New York Times Magazine and co-host of the podcast Still Processing
Thoughts from a Random Mind is the latest effort by author RL Keller. It’s a daily devotional that is designed not to simply bless and encourage readers but also challenge them to think about who God truly is and how they might improve their walk with Him. They are meant to be thought-provoking, encouraging, edifying, instructional, and hopefully also a blessing to the reader. The author considers himself no different than anyone else—just a believer wrestling each day with his beliefs. These devotions were born out of his own personal struggles with life and how his walk with Christ has grown and become more consistent. God is paramount in RL Keller’s life, and he is attempting to share his struggles through his writings so that the reader can know that he is not alone in the battle.
The latest Would You Rather installment is all-new, all thought-provoking, and exclusively for the feminine mind. Women are challenged with such questions as: "Would you rather... know what men are really thinking but not saying or what cats are really thinking but not saying?" "Would you rather... have every night out include a visit by the cast of The Hills or have every hangover include a visit by the cast of High School Musical?" and "Would you rather... have your ex come crawling back or have him crawl, literally, for the rest of his life?"

Random Wisdom is a collection of thoughts and insights from some of the greatest minds of modern and ancient times, painstakingly collected and compiled by one man in his unquenchable thirst for knowledge. This collection of literary tidbits will educate, inspire, and entertain the reader with its wide range of subjects, wit, and timeless anecdotes. As the title suggests, the information presented is randomly organized and is meant to serve as an inspirational reference book. The thousands of entries are designed to inspire deeper thinking and inward reflection, with many offering a healthy dose of wit and humor as well.
The demented minds that created the original Would You Rather…? collection and its best-selling follow-up, Would You Rather…?: Love and Sex, are back with even more preposterous predicaments and irreverent inquiries. Plumbing the depths of the current zeitgeist, Would You Rather…?: Pop Culture Edition is packed with over 300 wickedly funny — and deceptively thought-provoking — questions regarding sex, celebrities, hot trends, newsmakers, movies, video games, household products, and unusual combinations thereof. Would you rather be machine-gunned to death with Lite-Brite pegs or be assassinated by Cabbage Patch Dolls? Would you rather fight The Rock or fifteen clones of Barbara Bush to the death? Would you rather have phone sex with the Moviefone guy or Jar Jar Binks? Ideal for parties and road trips, these weighty philosophical questions are also perfect for moments of solitary reflection.
The Freakonomics of math—a math-world superstar unveils the hidden beauty and logic of the world and puts its power in our hands The math we learn in school can seem like a dull set of rules, laid down by the ancients and not to be questioned. In How Not to Be Wrong, Jordan Ellenberg shows us how terribly limiting this view is: Math isn’t confined to abstract incidents that never occur in real life, but rather touches everything we do—the whole world is shot through with it. Math allows us to see the hidden structures underneath the messy and chaotic surface of our world. It’s a science of not being wrong, hammered out by centuries of hard work and argument. Armed with the tools of mathematics, we can see through to the true meaning of information we take for granted: How early should you get to the airport? What does “public opinion” really represent? Why do tall parents have shorter children? Who really won Florida in 2000? And how likely are you, really, to develop cancer? How Not to Be Wrong presents the surprising revelations behind all of these questions and many more, using the mathematician’s method of analyzing life and exposing the hard-won insights of the academic community to the layman—minus the jargon. Ellenberg chases mathematical threads through a vast range of time and space, from the everyday to the cosmic, encountering, among other things, baseball, Reaganomics, daring lottery schemes, Voltaire, the replicability crisis in psychology, Italian Renaissance painting, artificial languages, the development of non-Euclidean geometry, the coming obesity apocalypse, Antonin Scalia’s views on crime and punishment, the psychology of slime molds, what Facebook can and can’t figure out about you, and the existence of God. Ellenberg pulls from history as well as from the latest theoretical developments to provide those not trained in math with the knowledge they need. Math, as Ellenberg says, is “an atomic-powered prosthesis that you attach to your common sense, vastly multiplying its reach and strength.” With the tools of mathematics in hand, you can understand the world in a deeper, more meaningful way. How Not to Be Wrong will show you how.

Arguing that death is the central force shaping our social life and order, Michael Kearl draws on anthropology, religion, politics, philosophy, the natural sciences, economics, and psychology to provide a broad sociological perspective on the interrelationships of life and death, showing how death contributes to social change and how the meanings of death are generated to serve social functions. Working from a social as well as a psychological perspective, Kearl analyzes traditional topics, including aging, suicide, grief, and medical ethics while also examining current issues such as the impact of the AIDS epidemic on social trust, governments' use of death symbolism, the business of death and dying, the political economy of doomsday weaponry, and death in popular culture. Incisive and original, this book maps the separate contributions of various social institutions to American attitudes toward death, observing the influence of each upon the broader cultural outlook on life.
