A #1 New York Times bestseller! From the New York Times bestselling author of Big Game: The NFL in Dangerous Times Washington D.C. might be loathed from every corner of the nation, yet these are fun and busy days at this nexus of big politics, big money, big media, and big vanity. There are no Democrats and Republicans anymore in the nation's capital, just millionaires. Through the eyes of Leibovich we discover how the funeral for a beloved newsman becomes the social event of the year; how political reporters are fetishized for their ability to get their names into the predawn e-mail sent out by the city's most powerful and puzzled-over journalist; how a disgraced Hill aide can overcome ignominy and maybe emerge with a more potent "brand" than many elected members of Congress. And how an administration bent on "changing Washington" can be sucked into the ways of This Town with the same ease with which Tea Party insurgents can, once elected, settle into it like a warm bath. Outrageous, fascinating, and very necessary, This Town is a must-read whether you're inside the highway which encircles DC - or just trying to get there.

Somewhere beyond the rain, the wind and the stars, and as far from the Earth as it's possible to be, there was a town so old that no one can remember how or when it began. It was a town where everyone stayed exactly the same, a town where no one grew older, a town surrounded by a million miles of yellow corn, which was so strange that if you went in, you disappeared immediately.And perhaps THISTOWN would have always stayed the same if they hadn't found The Sleeping Man.He changed everything. Forever.Amidst the turmoil, a group of young people battle to save the town from tyranny and oppression but when they are forced to flee — friendship and survival take on new meaning.

New York Times bestselling author, comedian, and Chelsea Lately writer Heather McDonald’s hilarious true story of finding herself in the predicament of being an unwilling virgin at the age of twenty-seven. Can’t a girl dress like a hooker, dance like a stripper, and kiss like a porn star and still be a nineteen-year-old virgin? You’ll Never Blue Ball in This Town Again is the laugh-out-loud story of an attractive Los Angeles woman who found herself in the predicament of being an unwilling virgin. As an actress, writer, and stand-up comedienne, Heather McDonald passed up ample opportunities to have her V-card revoked by handsome, rich, and sometimes even fabulously famous men, but she could not bring herself to do “it” until well after her friends had been deflowered. As Chelsea Handler so lovingly puts it, “Thank God Heather waited twenty-seven years to lose her virginity or she wouldn’t have any material for this book.” Whether in a backseat, a community pool, or a sports stadium, with a frat boy, a doctor, or an A-list celebrity, Heather McDonald knew how to turn those boys blue. Unlike “putting out,” blue balling might not have paid her rent or landed her free trips to

Single mom Tori Sullivan is ready to grab the life she's always wanted—away from Mystic Point. And initially, newcomer Walker Bertrand seems the ideal partner for her adventure. His appeal makes a girl fantasize about happily-ever-after. That is, until it's clear this lawman's strict moral code collides with her knack for bending the rules. Add in his investigation of her sister and that should be a warning that he's not Tori's fairy-tale ending, or her ticket out of town. Yet, Walker seems bent on getting to the bottom of her secrets—something no one has tried to do in a long time. That he wants to know the real Tori, makes resisting him impossible. But being with Walker could be the one thing that holds her here.

This little book does not prophesize that the sky is falling on cities and towns. It does not suggest that officeholders lack commitment and dedication. It is argued here that city and town councils are generally locked into governance structures that restrict them from being more effective. Councils are bombarded with demands, requests, and even threats, and often are unable to satisfy all constituencies. The fundamental premise is this: For councils to fulfill their roles more effectively requires a transformation not of the structure of governance but of a government's culture, using different and possibly new leadership styles. Councils must change rigid habits, arrangements, and thoughts and adopt an outside-in culture, one that discards unnecessary processes, procedures, and structures; allows extensive probing and questioning of premises and arrangements; and avoids the status quo in making decisions. Councils in large and small towns must comprehend the changing nature of society beyond their city limits and how these changes influence the behavior of citizens. An outside-in culture suggests the need to elect and appoint people who exhibit renaissance leadership skills and talents.
