Idiot - Laura Clery Summary

From YouTube star and Facebook Video sensation Laura Clery comes a collection of comedic essays in the vein of We Are Never Meeting in Real Life by Samantha Irby and You’ll Grow Out of It by Jessi Klein. Laura Clery makes a living by sharing inappropriate comedy sketches with millions of strangers on the Internet. She writes songs about her anatomy, talks trash about her one-eyed rescue pug, and sexually harasses her husband, Stephen. And it pays the bills! Now, in her first-ever book, Laura recounts how she went from being a dangerously impulsive, broke, unemployable, suicidal, cocaine-addicted narcissist, crippled by fear and hopping from one toxic romance to the next…to a more-happy-than-not, somewhat rational, meditating, vegan yogi with good credit, a great marriage, a fantastic career, and four unfortunate-looking rescue animals. Still, above all, Laura remains an amazingly talented, adorable, and vulnerable, self-described…Idiot. With her signature brand of offbeat, no-holds-barred humor, Idiot introduces you to a wildly original—and undeniably relatable—new voice.

High Achiever - Tiffany Jenkins Summary

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • An up-close portrait of the mind of an addict and a life unraveled by narcotics—a memoir of captivating urgency and surprising humor that puts a human face on the opioid crisis. “Raw, brutal, and shocking. Move over, Orange Is the New Black.”—Amy Dresner, author of My Fair Junkie When word got out that Tiffany Jenkins was withdrawing from opiates on the floor of a jail cell, people in her town were shocked. Not because of the twenty felonies she’d committed, or the nature of her crimes, or even that she’d been captain of the high school cheerleading squad just a few years earlier, but because her boyfriend was a Deputy Sherriff, and his friends—their friends—were the ones who’d arrested her. A raw and twisty page-turning memoir that reads like fiction, High Achiever spans Tiffany’s life as an active opioid addict, her 120 days in a Florida jail where every officer despised what she’d done to their brother in blue, and her eventual recovery. With heart-racing urgency and unflinching honesty, Jenkins takes you inside the grips of addiction and the desperate decisions it breeds. She is a born storyteller who lived an incredible story, from blackmail by an ex-boyfriend to a soul-shattering deal with a drug dealer, and her telling brims with suspense and unexpected wit. But the true surprise is her path to recovery. Tiffany breaks through the stigma and silence to offer hope and inspiration to anyone battling the disease—whether it’s a loved one or themselves.

Perpetual Motion - John L. Bell Summary

Perpetual Motion is the story of John Bell's life, from his birth as a "war-baby" in 1945 Britain, to his early years as a mathematics lecturer at the London School of Economics during the 1970s. It is unusual in being both the autobiography of a mathematical logician (now turned philosopher) and of a youth who spent most of his time very much on the move. His father's employment took his family to New York, Rome, The Hague, San Francisco, Bangkok, Tripoli, and Quito. It also includes a description of John's years at British boarding school, Cambridge, and Oxford and an account of his involvement in the turbulent political events of the late 1960s and early 70s.

My Fair Junkie - Amy Dresner Summary

In the tradition of Blackout and Permanent Midnight, a darkly funny and revealing debut memoir of one woman's twenty-year battle with sex, drugs, and alcohol addiction, and what happens when she finally emerges on the other side. Growing up in Beverly Hills, Amy Dresner had it all: a top-notch private school education, the most expensive summer camps, and even a weekly clothing allowance. But at 24, she started dabbling in meth in San Francisco and unleashed a fiendish addiction monster. Soon, if you could snort it, smoke it, or have sex with, she did. Smart and charming, with Daddy's money to fall back on, she sort of managed to keep it all together. But on Christmas Eve 2011 all of that changed when, high on Oxycontin, she stupidly "brandished" a bread knife on her husband and was promptly arrested for "felony domestic violence with a deadly weapon." Within months, she found herself in the psych ward--and then penniless, divorced, and looking at 240 hours of court-ordered community service. For two years, assigned to a Hollywood Boulevard "chain gang," she swept up syringes (and worse) as she bounced from rehabs to halfway houses, all while struggling with sobriety, sex addiction, and starting over in her forties. In the tradition of Orange Is the New Black and Jerry Stahl's Permanent Midnight, Amy Dresner's My Fair Junkie is an insightful, darkly funny, and shamelessly honest memoir of one woman's battle with all forms of addiction, hitting rock bottom, and forging a path to a life worth living.

Keeping Their Marbles - Tiffany Jenkins Summary

The fabulous collections housed in the world's most famous museums are trophies from an imperial age. Yet the huge crowds that each year visit the British Museum in London, the Louvre in Paris, or the Metropolitan in New York have little idea that many of the objects on display were acquired by coercion or theft. Now the countries from which these treasures came would like them back. The Greek demand for the return of the Elgin Marbles is the tip of an iceberg that includes claims for the Benin Bronzes from Nigeria, sculpture from Turkey, scrolls and porcelain taken from the Chinese Summer Palace, textiles from Peru, the bust of Nefertiti, Native American sacred objects and Aboriginal human remains. In Keeping Their Marbles, Tiffany Jenkins tells the bloody story of how western museums came to acquire these objects. She investigates why repatriation claims have soared in recent decades and demonstrates how it is the guilt and insecurity of the museums themselves that have stoked the demands for return. Contrary to the arguments of campaigners, she shows that sending artefacts back will not achieve the desired social change nor repair the wounds of history. Instead, this ground-breaking book makes the case for museums as centres of knowledge, demonstrating that no object has a single home and no one culture owns culture.

The C Student's Guide to Success - Ron Bliwas Summary

A very practical, step-by-step guide to career success for those who lack top grades or family connections. Some people graduate from college, and employers covet them: They are the best and the brightest, with stellar grades and great connections, able to land their dream jobs with major corporations right after school. This book is not for those people. In The C Student's Guide to Success, leading advertising executive-and former C student-Ron Bliwas presents a program of ten can't-fail principles for climbing to the top using your brains and talents-rather than family connections or fancy degrees. Bliwas uses real-world stories of business leaders, revealing how they identified and overcame their own weaknesses, and vaulted ahead of peers who had money and family connections. In surveying the come-from-behind success stories of his subjects, Bliwas provides creative, insightful, down-to-earth advice for new graduates, the recently employed, and those with a few false starts under their belt. In ten simple chapters, Bliwas teaches you how to: _ Make the most of many mentors _ Trust your instinct _ Strive to be a better person than employee _ Take responsibility seriously _ Master the art of purposeful learning _ Take advantage of unexpected opportunities _ Sell what you believe _ Go where the stars aren't _ Be a smart risk-taker _ Overcome straight-line thinking Bliwas encourages readers to embrace unconventional strategies, unexpected opportunities, and their own instincts, and to realize that opportunities for career growth exist everywhere-not just on the traditional path to job advancement.
