              A compelling act of connection, leavened with humour, clear-eyed yet packed with hope. --Ann-Marie MacDonald A rare work of narrative non-fiction that illuminates a world most of us try not to see: the daily lives of the severely mentally ill, who are medicated, marginalized, loc...ked away and shunned. Susan Doherty's groundbreaking book brings us a population of lost souls, ill-served by society, feared, shunted from locked wards to rooming houses to the streets to jail and back again. For the past 10 years, many who have cycled in and out of the severely ill wards of the Douglas Institute in Montreal found a friend in Susan, who volunteers on the ward and then accompanies her friends out into the world. With their full cooperation, she brings us intimate stories that challenge our views of people with mental illness. Through Caroline Evans, a woman in her early sixties whom Susan has known since she was a bright, sunny school girl, we experience living with schizophrenia, such as when Caroline was convinced she could save her roommate from the devil by pouring boiling water into her ear... She has been through it all, including having to navigate an indifferent justice system that is incapable of serving the severely ill. Susan interleaves Caroline's story with vignettes about her other friends--stories that reveal their hopes, circumstances, personalities, humanity. Susan found that if she can hang in through the first 10-15 minutes of every coffee date with someone in the grip of psychosis, true communication results. Their madness is not otherworldly: instead it tells us something about how they're surviving their lives and what they've been through. The Ghost Garden is a cargo of compassion and empathy that motivates us to re-examine our understanding of justice, society and humanity.

              NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - The intimate, inspiring, and authoritative biography of Sandra Day O'Connor, America's first female Supreme Court justice, drawing on exclusive interviews and first-time access to Justice O'Connor's archives She's a hero for our time, and this is the b...iography for our time. --Walter Isaacson Finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize - Named One of the Best Books of the Year by NPR and The Washington Post She was born in 1930 in El Paso and grew up on a cattle ranch in Arizona. At a time when women were expected to be homemakers, she set her sights on Stanford University. When she graduated near the top of her law school class in 1952, no firm would even interview her. But Sandra Day O'Connor's story is that of a woman who repeatedly shattered glass ceilings--doing so with a blend of grace, wisdom, humor, understatement, and cowgirl toughness. She became the first ever female majority leader of a state senate. As a judge on the Arizona Court of Appeals, she stood up to corrupt lawyers and humanized the law. When she arrived at the United States Supreme Court, appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1981, she began a quarter-century tenure on the Court, hearing cases that ultimately shaped American law. Diagnosed with cancer at fifty-eight, and caring for a husband with Alzheimer's, O'Connor endured every difficulty with grit and poise. Women and men who want to be leaders and be first in their own lives--who want to learn when to walk away and when to stand their ground--will be inspired by O'Connor's example. This is a remarkably vivid and personal portrait of a woman who loved her family, who believed in serving her country, and who, when she became the most powerful woman in America, built a bridge forward for all women. Praise for First Cinematic . . . poignant . . . illuminating and eminently readable . . . First gives us a real sense of Sandra Day O'Connor the human being. . . . Thomas gives O'Connor the credit she deserves. --Th

              The former federal prosecutor and congressman for South Carolina breaks down the art of persuasion into a few shockingly simple, easy-to-follow, and proven steps that will help readers win arguments, gain support for their cause, and convey their message successfully. You may nev...er find yourself in front of jury during a criminal prosecution arguing for a particular verdict or offering yourself for elected office in a political campaign. You simply want to be heard. You want to be understood. You want to effectively communicate what you believe, why you believe it, and perhaps why others should adopt your position as well. This book will help you get better at advancing what you believe through the art of asking the right questions, at the right time, in the right order, and in the right form. Blending gripping case studies, relatable personal stories, digestible evidence, and practical advice, it walks you through the tools and the mindset needed to effectively communicate. Using the same techniques he used from the courtroom to Congress, Trey Gowdy helps you land on your objective, know your jury, establish your burden of proof, and formulate strategic questions to persuade effectively beyond a reasonable doubt. The art of asking the right questions, listening to the response, and following up in a systematic way is essential to moving hearts and minds. And that should always be our objective when it comes to persuasion: striving not only to communicate but to move our audience to action. So let's get moving!

              I Like to Watch: Arguing My Way Through the TV Revolution (Paperback)

              From her creation of the Approval Matrix in New York magazine in 2004 to her Pulitzer Prizewinning columns for The New Yorker, Emily Nussbaum has argued that we've been looking at TV all wrong. In this collection, including two never-before-published essays, Nussbaum writes about... her passion for television, beginning with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the show that set her on a fresh intellectual path. She explores the rise of the female screw-up, how fans warp the shows they love, the messy power of sexual violence on TV, and the year that jokes helped elect a reality-television president. There are three big profiles of TV showrunners as well as examinations of the legacies of Norman Lear and Joan Rivers. The book also includes a major new essay written during the year of #MeToo, wrestling with the question of what to do when the artist you love is a monster. More than a collection of reviews, the book makes a case for toppling the status anxiety that has long haunted the idiot box, even as it transformed. Through it all, Nussbaum recounts her fervent search, over fifteen years, for a new kind of criticism, one that resists the false hierarchy that elevates one kind of culture (violent, dramatic, gritty) over another (joyful, funny, stylized). I Like to Watch traces her own struggle to punch through stifling notions of prestige television, searching for a more expansive, more embracing vision of artistic ambition-one that acknowledges many types of beauty and complexity and opens to more varied voices. It's a book that celebrates television as television, even as each year warps the definition of just what that might mean.
