The explosive secret e-mails Hillary Clinton doesn't want you to read (Or maybe she does...She's crafty like that.) Remember that time Hillary Clinton admitted that she deleted thousands of e-mails from her ultra-secret personal e-mail address while Secretary of State? Thousands of e-mails, she claimed, about her daughter's wedding? Well, people aren't buying it: "Hiding the truth" says The New York Post. "Conspiracy or incompetence?" asks Al-Jazeera. "Hillary Clinton Don't Give a Sh*t" claims Wonkette. Clearly, these e-mails need to be released immediately. Now, thanks to John Moe and WikiLoox, the lost messages have been retrieved and placed in this dossier. For the first time, we'll get a look inside HRC's well-coiffed head, reading intimate conversations with family (Bill, Chelsea), friends (Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Oprah, Beyonce), and frenemies (Obama, Palin, Putin) alike. We'll also learn essential details about her private life, from her pop-culture obsessions to her thoughts on yoga, baking cookies, "Scandal," and much more. Make no mistake--this is a book of critical national importance. Following her journey from mother-of-the-bride to commandress-in-chief, we'll see how HRC handles the most challenging situations she might face in the White House, including how to respond to people who "reply all" to e-mails and how to wrangle pantsuit retailers as they compete, with increasing desperation, for her attention. Along the way, we will finally get the portrait we need--the one our country deserves--of the woman we may soon call "Madam President." From the Trade Paperback edition.
From an expert in the field comes the definitive guide to managing breast cancer in the information age--a comprehensive resource for diagnosis, treatment, and peace of mind. The breast cancer cure rate is at an all-time high, and so is the information, to say nothing of the misinformation, available to patients and their families. Online searches can lead to unreliable sources, leaving even the most resilient patient feeling uneasy and uncertain about her diagnosis, treatment options, doctors, side effects, and recovery. Adding to a patient's anxiety is input from well-meaning friends and family, with stories, worries, and opinions to share, sometimes without knowing the details of her particular case, when in reality breast cancer treatment has gone well beyond a "one size fits all" approach. Elisa Port, MD, FACS, chief of breast surgery at The Mount Sinai Hospital and co-director of the Dubin Breast Center in Manhattan, offers an optimistic antidote to the ocean of Web data on screening, diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment. Inside you'll discover * the various scenarios when mammograms indicate the need for a biopsy * the questions to ask about surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and breast reconstruction * the important things to look for when deciding where to get care * the key to deciphering complicated pathology reports and avoiding confusion * the facts on genetic testing and the breast cancer genes: BRCA-1 and BRCA-2 * the best resources and advice for those supporting someone with breast cancer From innovations in breast cancer screening and evaluating results to post-treatment medications and living as a breast cancer survivor, Dr. Elisa Port describes every possible test and every type of doctor visit, providing a comprehensive, empathetic guide that every newly diagnosed woman (and her family) will want to have at her side.Praise for The New Generation Breast Cancer Book "One book you need . . .

G. K. Chesterton's highly influential treatise on one of the most controversial topics of the early twentieth century When G. K. Chesterton first published Eugenics and Other Evils in 1922, he seemed to be the lone voice of reason against the fashionable concept of selectively breeding a population for "desirable" traits. Though later generations came to associate eugenics with the horrors of the Third Reich, worldwide support for the philosophy was at an all-time high when Chesterton penned this brave and prophetic work. His unique combination of somber analysis and coruscating wit produces an argument too persuasive to ignore. Eugenics and Other Evils showcases Chesterton at the height of his rhetorical powers. His discussion of capitalism, socialism, and the concerns that guide our moral decisions is as pertinent today as the day it was penned.

Chesterton accepts an invitation to join a lecture tour that will take him across the United States for the first time. Part travelogue, part exploration of the American experiment, What I Saw in America begins with a man of letters trying to reconcile his faith with the atrocities and moral dilemmas of war and expands into an illuminating consideration of the limitations of capitalism, the concept of American exceptionalism, and the future of the democratic system. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
Part comedy, part adventure, part social commentary, this astonishing tale of tomorrow explores the essence of human nature Published in 1904, G. K. Chesterton's debut novel is set eighty years in the future. Technology and social mores remain the same, but the England of 1984 boasts a government in which ineffectual kings are selected at random from an otherwise apathetic populace that has "lost faith in revolutions." The political system hits a snag when Auberon Quin is selected as the next monarch. More joker than potentate, Quin amuses himself by installing a series of laws and bizarre customs that inflate civic pomp and circumstance to laughable proportions. These policies inevitably put Quin, a leader who does not believes in any of his dictums, on a collision course with his most earnest supporter: Adam Wayne, otherwise known as the Napoleon of Notting Hill. A favorite among scholars and critics, The Napoleon of Notting Hill showcases the eclectic wit and unorthodox intellect that established Chesterton as one of the twentieth century's most influential and far-reaching thinkers. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Fans of Chesterton's most famous works--from the Father Brown Stories to Heretics and Orthodoxy--will delight in the cleverness and invigorating wit of Tremendous Trifles. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
The opening salvo in G. K. Chesterton's war against vagueness, affectation, and group think in life and art Part literary criticism, part jeremiad, and part metaphysical inquiry, Heretics is G. K. Chesterton's groundbreaking attempt to cull the values, belief systems, and moral peccadilloes of his day. The twenty articles and essays included in this seminal work shed a brilliant light on the most profound mysteries of human nature. From the works of H. G. Wells, George Bernard Shaw, and Rudyard Kipling to "The Fallacy of the Young Nation" and "The Mildness of the Yellow Press," Chesterton casts a critical eye on the prevailing attitudes of the early twentieth century. He is at the height of his lucidity and sardonic power in Heretics, formulating a highly influential worldview that he would continue to develop in the acclaimed companion volume, Orthodoxy. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
An enduring collection of moral and social commentary from one of the twentieth century's most original thinkers This groundbreaking work epitomizes why G. K.

Chesterton's humor and intellectual verve are on full display, making these incisive essays as applicable in their exploration of ethics and the human heart today as when they were penned over a hundred years ago.
