For most of her life, Stefanie Preissner was a people-pleaser. From hair-raising sleepovers and endless offers of cake to unwanted second dates and unrealistic work demands, she said yes to everything - even if it scared her or made her uncomfortable. Until, one day, she realised that her life had become more about agreeing to other people's decisions than making any of her own. What did she want? And how would she figure this out? So Stefanie made a decision: she would start saying no. To everything. Hilarious and honest, Can I Say No? follows Stefanie through managing her fear of disappointing people, the thrill of setting boundaries, and finally coming to understand that she was worth more than the sum of her yeses. But is 'no' always the right answer? And what's the secret to finding the right balance so you can say YES to who you really are? 'What Stefanie captures so beautifully is that our value and worth are not tied to saying yes to everything that's asked of us' Arianna Huffington

Jack London was an American novelist, journalist and social activist. Pioneering the genre of magazine fiction and prototyping science fiction, he became one of the first writers, who gained worldwide fame and a large fortune. "The Game" is a story about a twenty-year-old boxer Joe, who meets his death in the ring. Since London was a sports reporter, he based the novel on his personal observations. In "The Abysmal Brute" story, a successful boxer, who was brought up in a log cabin and knows little of the real world, begins to realize the corrupt practices in the game of boxing. "Love of Life" is a collection of short stories, written mostly during author's “Klondike” period.

First published in 1976, You and Your Aging Parent is a classic--the first book to shed light on the challenging relationship between adult children and their aging parents, illuminating the emotional, health, and financial difficulties that elderly parents and their children face during the senior years. Marking the 30th anniversary of this highly popular book, the new and revised edition addresses the changes that have taken place in the last three decades, but it still embraces the authors' fundamental insight--that the difficulties and challenges of the aging process are as much a family affair as in any other phase of life. Both a sensitive exploration of the dynamics of the aging family relationship (between parent and child, and sibling and sibling) and an authoritative how-to guide for seniors and their families navigating the practical problems of growing old in America, You and Your Aging Parent has been thoroughly updated to reflect the latest research findings and changes affecting older adults, including in health care and social services. The book also includes a running commentary by Bob Morris--playwright, author, and humorist--who provides insightful and entertaining observations about his trials and tribulations with his own parents as they aged, serving as a contemporary voice for the middle-aged caregiver of today. As the first of the baby boom generation turns 60 and their increasingly frail parents approach late retirement and final decline, this new and updated edition of You and Your Aging Parent will answer their need for authoritative, practical information about this major phase of life.
