From David Elliot Cohen, the multi-New York Times bestselling author of One Year Off, The Wrong Dog is the heartwarming, often hilarious, story of Simba II, a mischievous white Labrador puppy brought home by accident. As he grows into an enormous ninety-pound dog with a huge personality, Simba cements the bond between two families and enriches their lives in countless ways. When the family moves from San Francisco to New York, the author is charged with bringing Simba to the family's new home, so he and his best friend, Erick, load the old hound into the back of a station wagon and set out on a 3,300-mile once-in-a-lifetime road trip across America. With stops at Buck Owens' Crystal Palace; the Las Vegas Strip; Meteor Crater; the Painted Desert; Cadillac Ranch; Winslow, Arizona; Gallup, New Mexico; Graceland, and other all-American landmarks, this engaging and poignant volume chronicles an epic journey, the unconditional love between one dog and his family, and the vast and benevolent role dogs play in American family life. But most of all, The Wrong Dog shows us how the end of life can sometimes be the richest part of all.

Melanie Higgins Zysk was a purebred city girl-until she discovered how animals could soothe her soul and enhance her life. Since then, Melanie and her husband, Tim, have made it their mission to provide shelter and love for animals of all kinds, including cats, dogs, pigs, and even cows. This heartwarming memoir pays tribute to Melanie's lasting love affair with animals small and large. Over the years, she and her husband have adopted abused, neglected, or unwanted animals and cared for them on their Florida ranch. Melanie has developed a set of beliefs about the human relationship with animals, and she has come to realize that each creature has a distinct personality, a warm heart, passion, and even a sense of humor. Melanie and Tim operate on the firm belief that every animal-whether an unfriendly cat, overweight pig, or blind cow-needs to love and be loved. Warmly portraying one woman's extraordinary devotion to animals, this moving story gives voice to the unbreakable bond between human and animal and demonstrates the remarkable power of unconditional love.

A.S. Friedells long journey to self-significance begins as a lonely child on a rural Texas cotton farm. Born shortly after the Pearl Harbor attack, her childhood is shaped both by the idyllic and romantic ballads of the '40s and the seemingly perfect marriage of her distant, narcissistic parents. Her search for love and significance propels her through five difficult marriages in a crooked maze of lost love, each turn uncovering only disappointment and a false sense of belonging. A vow to love her two children unconditionally leads her to abandon her search for self-worth in a perfect someone and instead discover a warm and strangely perfect comfort in the significance of motherhood.

Scheiß auf positives Denken sagt Mark Manson. Die ungeschönte Perspektive ist ihm lieber. Wenn etwas scheiße ist, dann ist es das eben. Und wenn man etwas nicht kann, dann sollte man dazu stehen. Nicht jeder kann in allem außergewöhnlich sein und das ist gut so. Wenn man seine Grenzen akzeptiert, findet man die Stärke, die man braucht. Denn es gibt so viele Dinge, auf die man im Gegenzug scheißen kann. Man muss nur herausfinden, welche das sind und wie man sie sich richtig am Arsch vorbeigehen lässt. So kann man sich dann auf die eigenen Stärken und die wichtigen Dinge besinnen und hat mehr Zeit, sein Potential gänzlich auszuschöpfen. Die subtile Kunst des darauf Scheißens verbindet unterhaltsame Geschichten und schonungslosen Humor mit hilfreichen Tipps für ein entspannteres und besseres Leben. Damit man seine Energie für sinnvolleres verwendet als für Dinge, die einem egal sein können.
