What follows is a sometimes funny, sometimes awkward, but always compelling comedy of errors as Abby, Mala, Bree and Zoe each try to find their Mr Right . . . or at least get laid.

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.

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.

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. From the Hardcover edition.

Losing It? The Psychology of Losing Weight and Never Finding it Again is a step-by-step guide to solving a weight problem once and for all-without dieting-as well as author John Whitney's personal story using this technique. Whitney was inspired to lose over 100 pounds after attending a course on the Cornerstone life management method in 1983. Using this approach, the author solved a lifelong weight problem, maintains the weight loss to this day, and even managed to do something previously as unimaginable as running The New York Marathon. In addition to assisting with the Cornerstone seminars, Whitney has written Losing It? to make the concepts available to a wider audience. He has maintained the weight loss for over 20 years without dieting, and continues to follow the Cornerstone Concept today. The Cornerstones provide the infrastructure to lose weight permanently and the tools to re-invent yourself, as you truly want to be. If you have tried endless fad diets only to find yourself more miserable than when you started, Losing It? The Psychology of Losing Weight and Never Finding it Again provides the solution you have been seeking-without dieting! Visit www.LosingIt.com on the Web.
