I have learned a few lessons since Kourt's death. One, death is not negotiable. Once someone has entered the realm of death, they totally cross over, they are gone. That lesson has been the most difficult for me to accept. For the first time, I was unable to help Kourtney with a problem. There was no phone call I could make nothing I could do for him. I felt like I had failed him. I was not there to protect him. On the morning of June 11, 2007, death took on a whole new meaning for Karen Lynne Duffie, a Michigan mother of three. That's the morning her twenty-two-year-old son, Kourtney, was murdered. In this memoir, Duffie provides a personal look into her day-to-day struggles, thoughts, and activities after her first-born son's death. Through journal entries, Duffie tells her emotional and heart-wrenching story of loss, grief, and recovery. A raw and captivating narrative, Life Interrupted reveals this mother's innermost thoughts and feelings. By sharing this memoir, Duffie provides grief support to others facing the murder of a child. The story serves as a beacon of enlightenment, inspiration, and hope for the future.

The vast majority of us can only dream of being an Olympic-level athlete - but we have no real idea of what that means. Here, for the first time, in all its shocking, funny and downright bizarre glory, is the truth of the Olympic experience. It is an unimaginable world: the kitting-out ceremony with its 35kg of team clothing per athlete the pre-Olympic holding camp with its practical jokes, resentment and fighting, and freaky physiological regimes the politicians' visits with their flirty spouses the vast range of athletes with their odd body shapes and freakish genetics the release post-competion in the Olympic village with all the excessive drinking, eating, partying and sex (not necessarily in that order) the hysteria of homecoming celebrations and the comedown that follows - how do you adjust to life after the Games? The Secret Olympian talks to scores of Olympic athletes - past and present, from Munich 1960 right through to London 2012, including British, American, Australian, Dutch, French, Croatian, German, Canadian and Italian competitors. They all have a tale to tell - and most of those tales would make your eyes pop more than an Olympic weightlifter's.

Welcome to Wally World is a journal of one man's two years in retail management at Wal-mart Stores Inc. The journal "chronicles" his personal experiences working with the mega-retailer and exposes the good, bad, and sometimes the ugly side of the retail business giant, in a humorous and whimsical way. There is no book like this that gives you a detailed look into to the day-to-day operations at such a grassroots level. If you loved the outrageous and situational comedy of Laura Weisberger's The Devil Wears Prada with the heart felt realism of Barbara Ehrenreich's Nickel and Dimed, you'll love Welcome to Wally World.Written in a journal format, each day tells a different story with familiar themes. While each day ends, another adventure always seems to be just around the corner. Each story stands on its own as a mixture of humor, anecdotes, and some seriousness. Readers will laugh at the hilarious and sometimes insane behind the scenes antics. If shoppers only knew the story behind the scenes and now they do.Welcome to Wally World represents a real "grassroots" effort to capture experiences, emotions, and goings on inside the world's largest retailer. A number of books may have been written from the corporate perspective, but this work focuses on the people behind the power-those hardworking clerks and managers who actually move the products and stock the shelves to achieve those sales and gross profits. Having spent nearly two years involved with the detailed experiences depicted in the book, I feel uniquely qualified to bring these stories and anecdotes to the public eye. Mixed with humor, seriousness and irony, Welcome to Wally World is a personal journey of my professional life with the company.The "take away" from my experiences with Wal-mart led me to the writing style you'll find in the book. No personal names are used. What is important is that these events portrayed would happen regardless of the individuals involved. The implication is that people are simply "cogs" in the corporate machine. Each day, via diary format, illustrates my belief that the journey was like a series of crazy, wild, and unpredictable "movies" or sub-journeys all rolled into one brief career. Each day at work, stood on its own.
