Who's Looking Out for You? by Bill O'Reilly
Bill O'Reilly again blasts a host of selfish and corrupt individuals and institutions for threatening the nation's well-being--no surprise there. What is surprising is the personal tone of Who's Looking Out For You, which is as much self-help as social or political commentary
The No Spin Zone
with the Powerful and Famous in America by Bill O'Reilly The audience of Fox's top-rated cable news talk show The O'Reilly
and of the bestselling book by the same name know that this explosive anchor can be
articulate, bombastic, scornful, witty, iconoclastic, passionate, persuasive and
sarcastic ("Can you feel Gary Conduit's pain?"). When conducting interviews, O'Reilly,
a two-time Emmy winner with 25 years reporting experience, delivers tough questions
and corrosive counterpoints. In the No-Spin Zone (originally conceived for his TV show),
"lies are rejected and equivocations are mocked." "All I ask is for powerful people
to respond honestly to the questions, and if they can't, explain why," says O'Reilly.
Here he excerpts past interviews with various memorable opponents James Carville
(on Bill Clinton), Dr. Laura (on working mothers), former surgeon general
Dr. Joycelyn Elders (on sex education), Puff Daddy (on rap), Susan Sarandon
(on police brutality), Al Sharpton (on boycotts) and insightfully introduces each,
mulling over the issue or providing background.
by Gail Sheehy At last, this is your story. You'll recognize yourself, your friends,
and your loves. You'll see how to use each life crisis as an opportunity
for creative change -- to grow to your full potential. Gail Sheehy's
brilliant road map of adult life shows the inevitable personality and sexual
changes we go through in our 20s, 30s, 40s, and beyond. The Trying 20s --
The safety of home left behind, we begin trying on life's uniforms and
possible partners in search of the perfect fit. The Catch 30s --
illusions shaken, it's time to make, break, or deepen life commitments.
The Forlorn 40s -- Dangerous years when the dreams of youth demand reassessment,
men and women switch characteristics, sexual panic is common, but the greatest
opportunity for self-discovery awaits. The Refreshed (or Resigned) 50s --
Best of life for those who let go old roles and find a renewal of purpose.
Excellent book to open up to understand yourself and your life.
Passages by Gail Sheehy by Gail Sheehy Sheehy's Passages (1976), in which she counseled thirtysomethings about the onset of midlife, went straight to the top of most best-seller lists, and her last book, The Silent Passage (1992), in which she schlepped women through menopause, did almost as well, despite the fact that females had been navigating the change of life for a millennium or so without Sheehy's help. Rapidly running out of passages, Sheehy now takes the obvious next step: edging her loyal readers, now entrenched in midlife, to the precipice and helping them face their mortality. Arguing that middle life is the "most unrevealed portion of adult life" (not once the Boomers dig in), Sheehy is here to tell you that the years from 45 to 65 are "not the stagnant, depressing downward slide we have always assumed they would be." Although she intends this book to be a "gift" to her anxious readers, it mostly fails. Before hearing about middle age's upside, we must wend our way through seemingly endless pages about women losing their spouses, men losing their jobs (to say nothing of their hair), and both men and women contracting enough diseases to make even the hardiest souls hurry in for a checkup.
Understanding Men's Passages
Discovering the New Map of Men's Lives by Gail Sheehy Average Customer Review:
Out of Print--Limited Availability. Gail Sheehy's taboo-breaking book about women's
menopause, The Silent Passage, was named one of the most influential
books of our time by the Library of Congress. Understanding Men's
Passages is just as powerful and is certain to change the landscape
of the psychology of men. Inspired by her husband's struggle with a
midlife career crisis, Sheehy has compiled nearly 10 years worth of
interviews and research into this book, revealing the fears and
self-doubts of men over 40 who struggle with identity crises both
at work and with their partners and children. Sheehy also defines male
menopause as a period in which hormones, including testosterone--and
therefore potency and sex drive--drop, and men suffer from irritability
and mood swings. She cites the statistics that claim more than 52
percent of men between the ages of 40 and 70 can expect some degree of
impotence--which translates into at least 20 million men.
"When ignored or denied, this sexual freeze extends more deeply
into every aspect of a man's life than was previously thought,"
she writes. "It can be an underlying cause of depression, divorce,
The men Sheehy interviewed were surprisingly candid about
their situations and are glad that they've opened up a discourse

Necessary Losses by Judith Viorst "This perceptive book should absorb and enrich anyone
who admits to being human." Benjamin Spock, M.D.
Essayist Judith Viorst, who has humorously eased our journey
to middle age, now turns her considerable talents to a more serious
and far-reaching subject: how we grow and change through the losses
that are an inevitable and necessary part of life. Arguing persuasively
that through the loss of our mothers' protection, the loss of the
impossible expectations we bring to relationships, the loss of our
younger selves, and the loss of our loved ones through separation
and death, we gain deeper persepctive, true maturity, and fuller
wisdom about life, Judith Viorst has wirtten a life-affirming and
