With classic, thematically interrelated stories alongside many crucial lesser-known ones-including, at the collection's heart, the novellas "Long after Midnight" and "The Fireman"-A Pleasure to Burn is an indispensable companion to the most powerful work of America's preeminent storyteller and a wondrous confirmation of the inimitable Bradbury's brilliance, magic, and fire.

"When you are inspired by good feelings, there's no end to your energy." So says Dr. Stella Resnick, who has been concerned about how to help people stop focusing on what's wrong in their lives and start noticing what's right since 1978 when she wrote an article for New Age magazine that turned the therapy world on its ear. Now she has* distilled her years of work and collected extensive corroborative research to uncover the root of unhappiness-pleasure resistance. When people don't fully enjoy their lives and loves, it is usually because they have a fixed ceiling of how much pleasure they can tolerate. "There is an enormous untapped potential for pleasure in every one of us that has yet to be fully explored," she writes. While writers including Paul Pearsall, Deepak Chopra, Bernie Siegel, and Joan Borysenko have recently identified the benefits of pleasure, to a large extent they have been concerned with positive mental attitudes and visualizations. Dr. Resnick advances the exploration of pleasure further by linking optimism, physical health, emotional fulfillment in love, deeply gratifying sex, and positive aging to our ability to fully enjoy eight core pleasures. These are: primal pleasure, pain relief, the elemental pleasures of play and humor, and mental, emotional, sensual, sexual, and spiritual pleasure. In this ground-breaking work, Dr. Resnick discusses each core pleasure, pointing out subtle and not so subtle ways we deny ourselves and how each core pleasure is relevant to our health, emotional well-being, and interpersonal relationships. Complete with inspiring stories of people who have learned to reclaim pleasures they had cut themselves off from, each chapter concludes with a set of simple personal experiments designed to aid readers in gaining skill at enjoying that pleasure more completely. The Pleasure Zone is for anyone wanting to maintain a lifestyle based on being drawn rather than driven, and on fully celebrating all the pleasures of a lifetime.

In recent years, cultural commentators have sounded the alarm about the dire state of reading in America. Americans are not reading enough, they say, or reading the right books, in the right way. In this book, Alan Jacobs argues that, contrary to the doomsayers, reading is alive and well in America. There are millions of devoted readers supporting hundreds of enormous bookstores and online booksellers. Oprah's Book Club is hugely influential, and a recent NEA survey reveals an actual uptick in the reading of literary fiction. Jacobs's interactions with his students and the readers of his own books, however, suggest that many readers lack confidence; they wonder whether they are reading well, with proper focus and attentiveness, with due discretion and discernment. Many have absorbed the puritanical message that reading is, first and foremost, good for you--the intellectual equivalent of eating your Brussels sprouts. For such people, indeed for all readers, Jacobs offers some simple, powerful, and much needed advice: read at whim, read what gives you delight, and do so without shame, whether it be Stephen King or the King James Version of the Bible. In contrast to the more methodical approach of Mortimer Adler's classic How to Read a Book(1940), Jacobs offers an insightful, accessible, and playfully irreverent guide for aspiring readers. Each chapter focuses on one aspect of approaching literary fiction, poetry, or nonfiction, and the book explores everything from the invention of silent reading, reading responsively, rereading, and reading on electronic devices. Invitingly written, with equal measures of wit and erudition,The Pleasures of Reading in an Age of Distraction will appeal to all readers, whether they be novices looking for direction or old hands seeking to recapture the pleasures of reading they first experienced as children.

"This book is a revelation...Barbach has made another important contribution to our understanding of women's sexuality'' We must find our ideas of female sexuality utterly revamped by this book.... "Normal Female Masochism" (as the Freudians used to call it) is wholly absent here! If Helene Deutsch could have read this book, what on earth would she have written? Lonnie Barbach's sane preface and introductions to individual sections are useful and enlightening." -ERICA JONG, Vogue
