You Work with a Bunch of Liars--Learn What to Do About It Sure, everyone tells little white lies now and then, but real deception in the workplace is a poison that can destroy relationships, careers, and companies. Carol Kinsey Goman, a leading workplace body language expert, combines her own experiences with the latest research to identify fifty subtle physical and vocal cues that will enable you to spot destructive workplace lies.

And once you detect a lie, she provides tactical advice on how to respond, whether the liar is above, below, or on the same level as you--even if it's your boss.

This book should be a best seller." --Robert L.

During her two decades atTheNew England Journal of Medicine, Dr. Marcia Angell had a front-row seat on the appalling spectacle of the pharmaceutical industry. She watched drug companies stray from their original mission of discovering and manufacturing useful drugs and instead become vast marketing machines with unprecedented control over their own fortunes. She saw them gain nearly limitless influence over medical research, education, and how doctors do their jobs. She sympathized as the American public, particularly the elderly, struggled and increasingly failed to meet spiraling prescription drug prices. Now, in this bold, hard-hitting new book, Dr. Angell exposes the shocking truth of what the pharmaceutical industry has become-and argues for essential, long-overdue change. Currently Americans spend a staggering $200 billion each year on prescription drugs. As Dr. Angell powerfully demonstrates, claims that high drug prices are necessary to fund research and development are unfounded: The truth is that drug companies funnel the bulk of their resources into the marketing of products of dubious benefit. Meanwhile, as profits soar, the companies brazenly use their wealth and power to push their agenda through Congress, the FDA, and academic medical centers. Zeroing in on hugely successful drugs like AZT (the first drug to treat HIV/AIDS), Taxol (the best-selling cancer drug in history), and the blockbuster allergy drug Claritin, Dr. Angell demonstrates exactly how new products are brought to market. Drug companies, she shows, routinely rely on publicly funded institutions for their basic research; they rig clinical trials to make their products look better than they are; and they use their legions of lawyers to stretch out government-granted exclusive marketing rights for years. They also flood the market with copycat drugs that cost a lot more than the drugs they mimic but are no more effective. The American pharmaceutical industry needs to be saved, mainly from itself, and Dr. Angell proposes a program of vital reforms, which includes restoring impartiality to clinical research and severing the ties between drug companies and medical education. Written with fierce passion and substantiated with in-depth research,The Truth About the Drug Companiesis a searing indictment of an industry that has spun out of control.

Kristin never believed vampires existed-until with dark brooding eyes and a decadent chocolate scent, Dmitri Dionotte called out to her. . . . Dmitri and his clan's true nature was cloaked in secrecy until a warring vampire order threatened their existence. Kristin was just the woman he needed.

But each night she spent with her vampire lover brought her closer to death and destruction. A death not even an immortal could triumph over.
From the Jacket: Today, many people consider Witchcraft to be one of the fastest-growing religions in the world. Articles in newspapers and magazines, as well as movies and shows on television, are filled with Witchcraft. Or rather, what is supposed to be Witchcraft. I have been involved with Witchcraft for over a quarter of a century and am surprised and disappointed that Wicca is still misunderstood, feared, and even hated. We asked Scott Cunningham to write The Truth About Witchcraft Today to help dispel misconceptions and give honest answers to those seeking to follow the Wiccan way. Already, over 135,000 people have used this book for one or both of these purposes. If you're interested in becoming a Witch, or want to know the truth about what Witches do, you should get this book too. This is not meant to be an in-depth study of Wicca. It is an introductory book so you can have the basics: What takes place in Wiccan rituals? What type of magic do Witches use? What holidays do Witches celebrate? What are the deities worshiped by Wiccans? It's all revealed here, and it's done in the easy-to-read, understandable style that has helped to make Cunningham famous. One of the purposes I have always hoped this book would fulfill is to help younger people let their parents and friends know that they aren't doing anything illegal or immoral. (In fact, real Witchcraft is a highly ethical religion which stresses personal responsibility for one's actions.) This book will help explain exactly what they are doing. So, if your parents or friends are open to hearing about what you do and what you believe, here is the perfect book to give to them. It may counter any doubt or distrust. And opening any person's mind to the truth is a good thing in and of itself.

Especially when Penny has a secret of her own. . . and she would rather end her marriage to Craig than have him discover the truth!
Over the years, Alison Lurie has earned a devoted readership for her satiric wit and storytelling acumen. With Truth and Consequences, described by the New Yorker as "a comedy of adultery with a comedy of academia thrown in," Lurie returns with a modern social satire that recalls the best of David Lodge and Mary McCarthy as well as her own popular university novels The War Between the Tates and Foreign Affairs. BACKCOVER: "A wily, shapely tale of love's labors lost." -Elle "A wry, insightful, thoroughly enjoyable tale about how men and women choose their demons and their lovers, and the sacrifices they're willing to make for both." -The Atlanta Journal-Constitution "Delightful . . . Her characters are, as always, wonderfully imperfect." -The New York Review of Books
