"Alana Massey's prose is to brutal honesty what a mandolin is to a butter knife: she's sharper; she slices thinner; she shows the cross-section of a truth so deftly--so powerfully and cannily--it's hard to look away, and hard not to feel that something has shifted in you for having read her."--Leslie Jamison, New York Times bestselling author of The Empathy Exams From columnist and critic Alana Massey, a collection of essays examining the intersection of the personal with pop culture through the lives of pivotal female figures--from Sylvia Plath to Britney Spears--in the spirit of Chuck Klosterman, with the heart of a true fan. Mixing Didion's affected cool with moments of giddy celebrity worship, Massey examines the lives of the women who reflect our greatest aspirations and darkest fears back onto us. These essays are personal without being confessional and clever in a way that invites readers into the joke. A cultural critique and a finely wrought fan letter, interwoven with stories that are achingly personal, ALL THE LIVES I WANT is also an exploration of mental illness, the sex industry, and the dangers of loving too hard. But it is, above all, a paean to the celebrities who have shaped a generation of women--from Scarlett Johansson to Amber Rose, Lil' Kim, Anjelica Huston, Lana Del Rey, Anna Nicole Smith and many more. These reflections aim to reimagine these women's legacies, and in the process, teach us new ways of forgiving ourselves.

There are many people who claim they are devout Christians but when asked what it means to be a Christian, they cannot give a clear and direct answer. Some of them live their lives contradictory to their beliefs and to the teachings of God. These and many other instances lead them nowhere but to a dead end. But which is the right path to joyous Christian living? In his new revealing book, author David Ray Gutierrez takes readers on a Journey to Joy by living the Christian life according to the Word of God explained by the Epistle of Paul to the Philippians. Divided into four major components, Journey to Joy provides an in-depth explanation of the messages that the Book of Philippians tries to convey to every Christian believer. These four components which are described as important journeys—The Journey of Conduct, The Journey of Character, The Journey of Consequence, and The Journey of Influence—represent the four chapters of the book that are simplified and refined to give readers a better understanding of the Word of God. Supported by personal experiences and spiritual insights, this book will help anyone define the meaning of Christianity, discover the secret to living a joyful Christian life, and develop a closer relationship with God.

The identified lives effect describes the fact that people demonstrate a stronger inclination to assist persons and groups identified as at high risk of great harm than those who will or already suffer similar harm, but endure unidentified. As a result of this effect, we allocate resources reactively rather than proactively, prioritizing treatment over prevention. For example, during the August 2010 gold mine cave-in in Chile, where ten to twenty million dollars was spent by the Chilean government to rescue the 33 miners trapped underground. Rather than address the many, more cost effective mine safety measures that should have been implemented, the Chilean government and international donors concentrated efforts in large-scale missions that concerned only the specific group. Such bias as illustrated through this incident raises practical and ethical questions that extend to almost every aspect of human life and politics. What can social and cognitive sciences teach us about the origin and triggers of the effect? Philosophically and ethically, is the effect a "bias" to be eliminated or is it morally justified? What implications does the effect have for health care, law, the environment and other practice domains? This volume is the first to take an interdisciplinary approach toward answering this issue of identified versus statistical lives by considering a variety of perspectives from psychology, public health, law, ethics, and public policy.

Most people are unaware of just how many children there are with special needs. Perhaps the worst part about this is that most of these children do not seem any different from any other kid outwardly. In this book, the author explores her first hand experience with children whose friends, family, and neighbors have no idea just what is going on in the minds of a child with special needs. By having the children write about their own first-hand experiences in their own voice, the author is shedding light on what is for most people, still a taboo and unknown subject. So, come. Meet the boy next door. He’s just like you and me, only a little different.
