NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER They met over their dogs. Gail Caldwell and Caroline Knapp (author of Drinking: A Love Story) became best friends, talking about everything from their love of books and their shared history of a struggle with alcohol to their relationships with men. Walking the woods of New England and rowing on the Charles River, these two private, self-reliant women created an attachment more profound than either of them could ever have foreseen. Then, several years into this remarkable connection, Knapp was diagnosed with cancer. With her signature exquisite prose, Caldwell mines the deepest levels of devotion, and courage in this gorgeous memoir about treasuring a best friend, and coming of age in midlife. Let’s Take the Long Way Home is a celebration of the profound transformations that come from intimate connection—and it affirms, once again, why Gail Caldwell is recognized as one of our bravest and most honest literary voices.

Top 10 Motivational Books of 2015 - Inc.com Top 10 Creative Leadership Books of 2015 - Forbes Against the backdrop of eroding trust in capitalism, pervasive technology, big data, and the desire to quantify all of our behaviours, The Business Romantic makes a compelling case that we must meld the pursuit of success and achievement with romance if we want to create an economy that serves our entire selves. A rising star in data analytics who is in love with the intrinsic beauty of spreadsheets; the mastermind behind a brand built on absence; an Argentinian couple who revolutionize shoelaces; the founder of a foodie-oriented start-up that creates intimate conversation spaces; a performance artist who offers fake corporate seminars for real professionals - these are some of the innovators readers will meet in this witty, deeply personal, and rousing journey through the world of Business Romanticism. The Business Romantic not only provides surprising insights into the emotional and social aspects of business but also presents 'Rules of Enchantment' that will help both individuals and organisations construct more meaningful experiences for themselves and others. The Business Romantic offers a radically different view of the good life and outlines how to better meet one's own desires as well as those of customers, employees, and society. It encourages readers to expect more from companies, to give more of themselves, and to fall back in love with their work and their lives.

Sworn to Uphold explores the story of an outstanding Air Force pilot who defends the nations capital and of his wife who works as a top-fl ight but devious advisor in the White House. Everything that one can ask for in a thriller is compressed into the nonstop action of this story. Heroism struggles for survival while ambition, infi delity, and doubledealing fill the lives of many of its characters. The story also features hair-breadth escapes when an order that would ground the pilot for alleged misconduct reaches his commander a few minutes late and when a terrorist outwits a brilliant detective who has almost fi gured out his plans. The ultimate result is even greater terror when the shattered limo with the President, accompanied by the pilots wife and children, is pursued by terrorists. At the same time, the pilot in his jet defends them from the terrorists with cannon fire and rockets. Love and honor have to battle for their rightful recognition even when the terrorists are defeated. Near the end, amid the snake-pit of the capital, the story makes its central theme of honor unequivocal. Aiming to destroy the President that he has saved, the pilot sets conditions to receive the nations ultimate award for heroism in a duel of wits that pits the pilot and the President against each other.
