Losing It Excerpt :

In Losing It, William Ian Miller brings his inimitable wit and learning to the subject of growing old: too old to matter, of either rightly losing your confidence or wrongly maintaining it, culpably refusing to face the fact that you are losing it. The “it” in Miller’s “losing it” refers mainly to mental faculties—memory, processing speed, sensory acuity, the capacity to focus. But it includes other evidence as well—sags and flaccidities, aches and pains, failing joints and organs. What are we to make of these tell-tale signs? Does growing old gracefully mean more than simply refusing unseemly cosmetic surgeries? How do we face decline and the final drawing of the blinds? Will we know if and when we have lingered too long?Drawing on a lifetime of deep study and anxious observation, Miller enlists the wisdom of the ancients to confront these vexed questions head on. Debunking the glossy new image of old age that has accompanied the graying of the Baby Boomers, he conjures a lost world of aging rituals—complaints, taking to bed, resentments of one’s heirs, schemes for taking it with you or settling up accounts and scores—to remind us of the ongoing dilemmas of old age. Darkly intelligent and sublimely written, this exhilarating and eccentric book will raise the spirits of readers, young and old.

Losing It has been shortlisted for the PG Woodhouse Comedy Literary Prize as well as The Edinburgh First Book Award 2015. Millie was at one time quite well known for various TV and radio appearances. However, she now has no money, a best friend with a better sex life than her, a daughter in Papua New Guinea and too much weight in places she really doesn't want it. When she's asked to be the front woman for a new diet pill, she naively believes that all her troubles will be solved. She will have money, the weight will be gone, and maybe she'll get more sex. If only life was really that easy. It doesn't take her long to realize it's going to take more than a diet pill to solve her never-ending woes... Losing It is the hilarious debut from Helen Lederer, one of the UK's favourite comediennes.

Losing It Excerpt :

To understand Anna Karenina, Mellors, Molly Bloom, Dante, Romeo, Juliet and Bridget Jones you must also have loved and lost and won. To understand sport in the greatest arenas of them all you too must have played and lost and won, known shame, hope, joy, horror and glory. Simon Barnes has taken part in seven summer Olympic Games, five World Cups and ten Ashes series. Well, not exactly taken part, but certainly he was there and writing hard. And always, behind every victory and every defeat he ever recorded, there was the reference of his own sporting career, in which the bitter beauties of failure were occasionally varied with the intoxication of success. At school he was – at least at first – the opposite of a rebel without a cause: he was a sporting fool in search of a game he could excel at, alas finding none. When he was nine he thought he would somehow be miraculously good at sport. Sadly he never was. But the sporting fool within him never died and in his late 20s he tried again – a second sporting career, in which the triumph of hope over experience was more or less a rout. The dream had only slightly modified: he now thought he would be somehow be miraculously competent. So he co-founded a football team and at last found himself the first-choice goalkeeper. Then he co-founded a cricket team, on the grounds that by doing so he would always be sure of a game. And at the same time, he got horsiness and discovered he was actually quite good at riding in competition. All these adventures taught him about sport: why we do it, what is required to be very good at it. He learned about the relationship of physical and mental skills, about fear and courage and physical pain. He learned about funk, about Zen-like calm, about the team thing, about the "me" thing. His sporting failure has been a joyous and profoundly informative part of his life, and here he tells the story of it.

Sarah Francis is 35, a modern, independent woman; cool, funny, cynical. She has never craved the permanence of a long-term relationship, never sought a man for something 'meaningful'. Instead, she has taken her pick, followed her moods and whims, never exposing herself to the risk of becoming emotionally involved. Until, that is, Matt Coltman enters her life. He's not just another man, another fling, another conquest. He's essential. And now the rules by which Sarah has always lived her life have fundamentally changed. What was unimportant to her before is now the very thing that drives her.So what's Matt doing messing around with that new girl who works in Sarah's office, a girl Sarah herself was keen to employ? And why did Matt need to have other women before Sarah even met him? Why couldn't he have remained chaste, untainted...pure? Why didn't he save himself for Sarah? She can never really have him, properly possess him, until he stops spoiling Sarah's paradigm of a perfect relationship. Those other women in his life, past or present, will always stand in the way. Obsession and retrospective jealousy impel Sarah into an inexorable spiral of violence and destruction. Can she stop herself before she learns the appalling truth?

Thou shalt not sleep with thy friend’s sister… It was basically the number one rule of the bro code, and Blake Wolfe just came dangerously close to breaking it. How could he know that the gorgeous woman he made out with at a party was his friend’s little sister? Now that he knows, she is hands off...which is easier said than done. Kristen Watson is in Seattle for a much-needed vacation after graduating college. Though she has more planned than just hanging out with her bestie—it’s also the perfect time to ditch her virgin status and have a little fun before joining the real world. But finding the perfect guy is proving harder than she expected, especially when the perfect guy is apparently off-limits. Blake knows trying to dissuade Kristen from the plan is useless. So he does the next best thing and volunteers to be her wingman. But helping her pick “the one” might be as challenging as trying not to claim her for himself. Previously titled Her Wingman

Sometimes those who have the most seem bent on throwing it away. Meet Bob Sterling, a comfortable middle-aged professor, a specialist in the life of Edgar Allan Poe, married to a former student with whom he has a young son. In the space of a week his family, marriage, career, sanity, and life are brought to the brink of ruin in the aftermath of a trip he makes with a student, the intense young poet Sienna Chu, who tweaks into florescence a long-harboured, secret sexual fetish. Then add to the mix the misadventures of his wife’s mentally failing mother, a shy night prowler, and Sienna’s explosive techno-junkie roommate. Poignant and gritty, tantalizingly erotic, Losing It is a high-wire act that plays out as a delicious blend of darkness and humour as it embraces the surprising emotional connections that are made in the midst of life’s madness.

Losing It Making Weight Loss Simple Excerpt :

You have probably tried losing weight at some point in your life, or at least thought about it. Well-meaning and well-intentioned articles, websites and ‘experts’ give out advice on losing weight through the latest research, ‘super’ foods or following ‘magical’ weight-loss techniques. This complicates the process and gives out conflicting information. What is lacking, then, is a coherent how-to which provides you with the pros and cons of healthy foods and foods which have ‘healthy’ claims attached to them, beverages and exercise. Losing It! fills in this gap with tips that are easy to tie into your daily life, resulting in long-term weight loss while gaining in nutrition and fitness. Faced with stores full of choices and the demands of a busy life, how do get together a balanced meal? What foods have empty calories and which ones really help you? Is bread bad for you? Should you not eat rice? What are the healthy choices you can opt for while eating out? Does going to the gym help? What’s holding back your weight loss? Losing It! addresses your everyday burning queries and concerns simply, and is chock-full of tips and suggestions for you to lose weight effectively. Informative and user-friendly, this is a book that will rest as easy in your bag or purse as on the bookshelf.
