Much later, as he sat with his back against an inside wall of a Motel 6 just north of Phoenix, watching the pool of blood lap toward him, Driver would wonder whether he had made a terrible mistake. Later still, of course, there'd be no doubt. But for now Driver is, as they say, in the moment. And the moment includes this blood lapping toward him, the pressure of dawn's late light at windows and door, traffic sounds from the interstate nearby, the sound of someone weeping in the next room .Thus begins Drive, a new novella by one of the nation's most respected and honored writers of noir fiction. Set mostly in Arizona and L.A., the story is, according to Sallis, ''about a guy who does stunt driving for movies by day and drives for criminals at night. In classic noir fashion, he is double - crossed and, though before he has never participated in the violence ('I drive. That's all.'), he goes after the ones who doublecrossed and tried to kill him.''

Forget everything you thought you knew about how to motivate people—at work, at school, at home. It's wrong. As Daniel H. Pink (author of To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Motivating Others) explains in his paradigm-shattering book Drive, the secret to high performance and satisfaction in today's world is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world. Drawing on four decades of scientific research on human motivation, Pink exposes the mismatch between what science knows and what business does—and how that affects every aspect of our lives. He demonstrates that while the old-fashioned carrot-and-stick approach worked successfully in the 20th century, it's precisely the wrong way to motivate people for today's challenges. In Drive, he reveals the three elements of true motivation: *Autonomy—the desire to direct our own lives *Mastery—the urge to get better and better at something that matters *Purpose—the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves Along the way, he takes us to companies that are enlisting new approaches to motivation and introduces us to the scientists and entrepreneurs who are pointing a bold way forward. Drive is bursting with big ideas—the rare book that will change how you think and transform how you live.

'Skewed Views Too' continues Roy Schlemme's cartoon exploration of our human faults and foibles. Using everything from wry wit to out-and-out broad slapstick, he intelligently takes the reader on a rambling, merry journey. Beginning, at times, with the most bizarre of premises, Schlemme quickly cajoles even the most somber of us into forgetting our personal problems and laughing out loud at the adventures of his eccentric cast of zanies. Unlike other more traditional cartoonists who, generally, of necessity work small and simple, Schlemme utilizes the larger page along with a more detailed drawing style to enhance the final effect upon readers. There's no single theme from one vignette to the next, but rather a lively bouncing around certain to capture even the most humor-resistant of us. 'Skewed Views Too', with over 150 humorous situations, is sure to find itself one of the more appealing gift-giving ideas and entertaining book options around.

Blazing Miami sun. Cool classic cars. Dangerous undercover assignment. In Sidney Bristol's scorching new Hot Rides series, the cars are fast and the romance is furious… Aiden DeHart has a history--and secrets. His classic car garage is a front for an FBI operation. His current mission: get some evidence from a drug dealer's ex-wife, then get out. Madison Haughton sending his engine into overdrive isn't part of the plan, though, especially considering she might not be as innocent as Aiden thought… Since her divorce from her sleazeball ex, Madison has sworn off bad boys, gotten some sweet tattoos, and become a star of Miami's roller derby scene. But however fast she skates, her ex is always on her tail. When the sexy guy in the muscle car offers to help, he could be her ticket to safety--or a detour down a deadly road… "Will entice readers with its edgy feel...As intense as it is sensual, and readers will embark on a page-turning quest" --Publishers Weekly "Bristol opens her Hot Rides series in style with this quick-paced, clever, and wholly original romance. She neatly avoids the pitfalls of her chosen trope, making her damsel in distress a gutsy, tough and resourceful heroine, and her savior hero an honorable and honest man with his own insercurities underneath a rough exterior. Their chemistry is blistering, but their ability to share every aspect of themselves makes this relationship uniquely rewarding... Readers who sit back and enjoy the ride will find this a pleasurable read" -- RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars "Fast, furious, and full of heat!" --Julie Ann Walker, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author
