The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen

release date: Feb 09, 2018
The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen
Marry for Love, Austen Said-Did She? Tradition holds that Jane Austen lived a quiet single life. But what if she wed a man equal to her intelligence, character, and passion-and the family covered it up? "The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen" resolves the mystery of Austen''s life during the "missing years" of her twenties: -Why the enduring rumors of a lost love or tragic affair? -Why, afterward, did the vivacious Jane put on the "garb of middle age" and shut herself away to write her books? -Why, upon her death, did her beloved sister destroy her letters and journals from this period? An accurate rendering of her life and tumultuous times, The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen fills in the blanks of Austen''s "lost years" with a riveting love story that also engages the protagonist in the most important and the dramatic events of the Regency era. Praise for the trilogy: ''A skillful portrayal of an early nineteenth-century icon takes this historical romance on an imaginative journey of the soul. ... These fascinating people step off the pages in lifelike form.'' -Foreword CLARION Reviews, 4 stars ''Hemingway ... captures the energy of the times, while also writing with the irony and sly humor of Austen herself. ... Truly a worthy addition to the Jane Austen legacy.'' -Blueink Starred Review ''Enjoyable ... an imaginative, well-researched series.'' -Kirkus Reviews

Maximum Brainpower

release date: Jun 26, 2012
Maximum Brainpower
“A wonderfully helpful book . . . After reading it, you will understand what you must do for your brain, and why you must do it.”—Norman Doidge, M.D., New York Timesbestselling author of The Brain That Changes Itself Did you know that experts are often less mentally agile than jacks-of-all-trades? That crossword puzzles and sudoku are of minimal help in building brainpower? That multitasking poses unique dangers to the brain? Cognitive psychologist Shlomo Breznitz knows—and what’s more, he knows what to do about it. In Maximum Brainpower, Breznitz and technologist Collins Hemingway provide both an in-depth look at how the brain works and proven methods to increase its capabilities. Armed with the results of cutting-edge research, they champion the stimulus of continual change over the deadening effects of comfortable routine, show how to separate good mental stress from bad, and demonstrate how hope and socialization can help defend against forgetfulness, memory loss, even dementia. Filled with colorful real-life stories and fascinating psychological experiments, this revelatory work will help adults of any age keep their minds sharp, healthy, and cognitively fit throughout life. It’s a no-brainer! Praise for Maximum Brainpower “Everyone knows the importance of physical fitness; less appreciated is the necessity of cognitive fitness. How do you maintain an exercised, stimulated, flexible brain? Start by reading this book.”—David Eagleman, New York Times bestselling author of Incognito “Profound, rich, and enriching . . . Because of its forceful suggestions, its analyses, and its wide knowledge, this book is well worth reading. And rereading.”—Elie Wiesel, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and author “Many of us are petrified of Alzheimer’s disease, strokes, and other maladies that impair the functioning of the brain. Breznitz and Hemingway can deliver no ‘magic bullet’ to prevent dementia. But their book does get you thinking about what you can do to develop and maintain your gray matter, build on the plasticity of the brain, and increase the likelihood that you’ll live not just a longer but a fuller life.”—The Huffington Post “Most books about healthy brain maintenance just give you the ‘how’; this one tells you why. And it helps you do it.”—Rita Carter, author of Mapping the Mind

This book should be on the reading list of every executive and every board member of every type of organization."---Jonathan Estrin, executive vice president, American Film Institute "Filled with practical ways to master `the softer side'' of business, this guide will help employers effectively implement change and produce more cooperative, innovative, and dedicated employees...Thanks to the authors'' thorough research and accessible style, readers will understand not just how to improve their companies, but why it''s necessary.
