We live in other people's heads: avidly, reluctantly, consciously, unaware, mistakenly, and inescapably. Our social life is a constant negotiation among what we think we know about each other's thoughts and feelings, what we want each other to think we know, and what we would dearly love to know but don't. Cognitive scientists have a special term for the evolved cognitive adaptation that makes us attribute mental states to other people through observation of their body language; they call it theory of mind. Getting Inside Your Head uses research in theory of mind to look at movies, musicals, novels, classic Chinese opera, stand-up comedy, mock-documentaries, photography, and reality television. It follows Pride and Prejudice’s Mr. Darcy as he tries to conceal his anger, Tyler Durden as he lectures a stranger at gunpoint in Fight Club, and Ingrid Bergman as she fakes interest in horse races in Notorious. This engaging book exemplifies the new interdisciplinary field of cognitive cultural studies, demonstrating that collaboration between cognitive science and cultural studies is both exciting and productive.

They’re big. They’re hot. And they play hard. In the kickoff to Serena Bell’s sexy new football romance series, the heat between a female coach and a cocky linebacker turns the Seattle Grizzlies locker room upside down. Iona: There’s nothing like the rush of going head-to-head with the boys. Football is my life, and I got my new job with the Seattle Grizzlies because I know how to play rough. But as a woman in a man’s game, I can’t afford any distractions—like panty-melting tabloid darling Ty Williams, my star linebacker. I’ve stared down plenty of good-looking players without losing my cool . . . and yet something about Ty’s intense gaze burns straight to my core. Ty: Despite what they say in the press, I save my best moves for game day. The Grizzlies aren’t just my teammates, they’re my brothers—no way am I going to let some new coach shake up our defense. But Iona Thomas isn’t just some coach. It’s so tough to keep my head in the game when I’d rather be in bed with her. She may take charge at practice, but if I had her in my arms, I’d be choosing the plays. I just need to figure out what makes her tick—and what makes her want to break the rules. Advance praise for Getting Inside “Readers will look forward to getting to know more of the Seattle Grizzlies. . . . [Serena] Bell scores a touchdown with her fresh and fast-paced first Seattle Grizzlies sports contemporary.”—Publisher Weekly “Readers will root for the success of the Grizzlies and for Ty and Iona’s relationship on and off the field.”—Library Journal “Getting Inside is a sexy and entertaining sports romance.”—All About Romance “Getting Inside mixes in a little humor with its romance. I found myself laughing at little things the characters thought or said throughout the book, which kept is light and entertaining.”—Hines and Bigham’s Literary Tryst “The premise is entertaining; the characters are colorful; the romance is sexy.”—The Reading Cafe “Tense, heart-scalding, and emotionally riveting, this has already earned a spot on my best-of-the-year list.”—Omnivoracious “I adored Getting Inside and recommend this to all sports romance readers. Don’t miss this fabulous story!”—Red Hot + Blue Reads (five stars) “Forbidden love, high stakes and a delicious slow burn. I loved Getting Inside by Serena Bell.”—USA Today bestselling author Kelly Jamieson “Serena Bell brings her flawless writing to a football romance that will keep you on the edge of your stadium seat! Great chemistry and an irresistible hero.”—Sarina Bowen, USA Today bestselling author of the Brooklyn Bruisers series “Serena Bell scores a touchdown with this hot football romance—the chemistry between Iona and Ty is searing!”—Christi Barth, author of the Naked Men series “Getting Inside is Serena Bell at her best! An excellent start to her new series. Highly recommended!”—Wendy S. Marcus, award-winning author of All I Need Is You “Somehow I fell in love with two people and learned a ton about football. Don’t start this one unless you’ve got the day to yourself. Magic!”—Samantha Wayland, author of the Ice Cats hockey series Getting Inside is a short novel about going long. Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title!

For every bewildered parent, there’s a kid longing to be understood. What parent hasn’t occasionally looked at their beloved but bewildering offspring and wondered, What in the world is he thinking? or Why is my sweet little girl acting like that? In this remarkable book, Shaunti Feldhahn and Lisa Rice take you inside the mind of teens and preteens through the same innovative approach that seized national attention in the best-selling books For Women Only, For Men Only, and For Young Women Only. They explore the results of a nationwide survey and personal interviews with more than 1,000 real-life teens and tweens to tackle those things parents often don’t “get” about their kids. You’ll hear first-hand about the longings that drive your kids’ seemingly illogical decisions, the truth behind those exasperating “attitude problems,” and what your children would tell you if they could trust you to truly listen. From the Hardcover edition.

Respected arts commentator and author Paul Morley, an artistic advisor to the curators of the highly successful retrospective exhibition 'David Bowie Is...' for the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, constructs a definitive story of Bowie that explores how he worked, played, aged, structured his ideas, influenced others, invented the future, and entered history as someone who could and would never be forgotten.

And of course, discusses in detail his much-heralded and critically acclaimed finale with the release of Blackstar just days before his shocking death in New York.

Haunted by her hellish past as the school outcast and the distraught daughter of a war-bitten Austrian mother, Andrea leaves home to find the happiness she knew as a young child in the flowering meadows of Iowa. She is confronted with people from drug dealers to reverends to professors; with countless jobs dealing with the elderly, the mentally ill, animals, and cancer patients, with the black of night as she huddles against the seat of her car in abandoned campgrounds. And along the way, she dives head first into the flip side of the physical realm. Did she really take a walk with her guardian angel? It's one adventure after the next as Andrea struggles to define herself in a world intolerant of "misfits." Also woven into the story are a meek and mild father, a harassing grandfather, a loony brother who assumes the personality of Mr. Spock from Star Trek, and a clandestine foe that takes up residence inside her own head: attention deficit disorder. The resultant composite offers both layman and mental health enthusiast an intimate look into the development of borderline personality traits in the style of an entertaining novel, not that of a dry case study. It depicts a very unusual yet understandable life. Who doesn't want to be loved? These are ordinary feelings magnified to the level of total despair by extraordinary situations. They touch upon the very foundation of the human psyche. What stirs one, stirs us all.
