    Synopsis
    Loretta Lawson is spending this weekend in a borrowed flat in New York on one of the hottest weekends of the summer. She has hardly arrived in the city when she gets the first of a series of obscene phone calls, and the next day, in the Metropolitan Museum, she gets the feeling that someone is watching and following her. She tries to shrug it off, but then several disturbing incidents occur which are not easy to dismiss, and the one person who might be able to help -her ex-husband John Tracey, in New York on a story—has too many problems of her own. Challenging, witty and unsettling, Full Stop is Joan Smith's most sophisticated and suspenseful novel to date. Joan Smith is the author of Misogynies, and five novels featuring Loretta Lawson: A Masculine Ending, Why Aren't They Screaming, Don't Leave Me This Way, What Men Say and Full Stop. The first two have been filmed for BBC television with Janet McTeer playing the role of Loretta. Joan Smith has also edited a collection of short stories, Femmes de Siecle, and is writing a book about food. She writes a monthly column in the Guardian, and contributes to the Independent on Sunday, the Observer and the Financial Times.

    Synopsis
    In 1946, the World Health Organisation defined 'health' as: 'a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.' Until now, no one has defined this third dimension to health or described strategies to deliver it. Twenty-five years after the arrival of the Internet, we are drowning in data and deadlines; we can never have imagined that our daily intake of information and achieving a healthy balance in our personal and professional lives could feel so complex and so unhealthy. In recent years organisations have come a long way towards promoting health literacy (on obesity, smoking, diet and exercise) and some way in acknowledging mental health issues. But acknowledging the challenges of the Internet and social media on employee and workplace health is the social element, and most have not yet begun to offer solutions. The challenges, threats and opportunities of a 'perma-connected' global economy and society could not be greater - and they will only increase. This is the first audiobook to define what social health means in both society and the modern workplace. Here, Julia Hobsbawm argues that developing social health will help employees become more efficiently engaged with each other and their work and help employers to create workplaces that support social health and thus greater productivity. By utilising the latest thinking in health and behavioural economics, social psychology, neuroscience, management and social network analysis, Fully Connected will provide a blueprint for how to use social health to foster well-being and productivity. At every level, each person, department and organisation is struggling to find a way to navigate this challenging era; Fully Connected will be a blueprint for anyone looking to reclaim time, space and identity in our hyperconnected world.

    Synopsis
    A timely and informed assessment of the rapidly growing gaming industry that is altering the world around us. Despite the recession, video games continue to break records and command unprecedented amounts of media coverage. The U.S. is the world's biggest video games market and manufacturer, with a market now worth over $20 billion annually in software and hardware sales more than quadruple its size in the mid 1990s. World of Warcraft now boasts over 11 million players worldwide, and over $1 billion per year in revenues. Gaming is flourishing as a career and a creative industry as well. 254 U.S. colleges and universities in 37 states now offer courses and degrees in computer and video game design, programming and art. Video games are increasingly for everyone: 68% of American households now play computer or video games, while the average game player is 35 years old and has been playing games for twelve years. Against the popular image, too, 43% of online U.S. game players are female. The U.S. military alone now spends around $6 billion a year on virtual and simulated training programs, based around video games and virtual worlds. The budgets for developing the biggest games can now top the $100 million mark and are snapping up some of the biggest names in film, from Steven Spielberg to Peter Jackson.

    Synopsis
    A writer Time magazine has said “everybody should read,” Sam Lipsyte, author of the New York Times bestselling The Ask, offers up The Fun Parts, a book of bold, hilarious, and deeply felt fiction. A boy eats his way to self-discovery, while another must battle the reality-brandishing monster preying on his fantasy realm. In another story, an aerobics instructor, the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, makes the most shocking leap imaginable to save her soul. These are just a few of the tales, some first published in The New Yorker, The Paris Review, and Playboy, that unfold in Lipsyte’s richly imagined world.Other stories feature a grizzled and possibly deranged male doula, a dooms-day hustler about to face the multi-universal truth of “the real-ass jumbo,” and a tawdry glimpse of the northern New Jersey high school shot-putting circuit, circa 1986. Combining both the tragicomic dazzle of his beloved novels and the compressed vitality of his classic debut collection, Venus Drive, The Fun Parts is Lipsyte at his best—an exploration of new voices and vistas in the form with which he began.

    Synopsis
    George Lenhart's New York is a retro-Manhattan, a Cheeveresque world of clubs, cocktails, and cards. Heading to Wall Street after college, Lenhart takes up with his old boarding school crowd, a group of young men and women who have every intention of amusing themselves and none at all of growing up. At the center of the frivolity is a girl - 'the' girl - careless, fickle Kate Goodenow, whom George watches, as he always has, as she plays Hearts with one young man after another, but never with him. The threat to this world of monied and formerly monied WASPs arrives in the form of Harry Lombardi, a middle class Catholic gate-crasher, desperate to learn the fundamentals of play. When Harry's blunders call a halt to all the fun, George must decide whether the only game he knows is worth the price of playing.

In a moving tale exploring Southern spirit and camaraderie among working women, a young mother will compel a town to become a community.
