Anais Nin, Anne Frank and Sylvia Plath wrote the world's most famous diaries. And where are they today? Dead. But the world's OTHER great diarist, Joan Rivers, is alive and kicking. And complaining.

In the extraordinary tradition of The Habit of Being: Letters of Flannery O'Connor and George Orwell's Diaries, comes an intimate and enriching glimpse into the mind of the most illuminating woman-­of-­letters of her generation—­the provocative exploration of an age in which she has lived on and on and on and on.

Following up the phenomenal success of her headline-­making New York Times bestseller I Hate Everyone...­Starting With Me, the unstoppable Joan Rivers is at it again. When her daughter Melissa gives her a diary for Christmas, at first Joan is horrified—­who the hell does Melissa think she is? That fat pig, Bridget Jones? But as Joan, being both beautiful and introspective, begins to record her day-­to-­day musings, she...

Wenn nur das Andererseits nicht wäre »Ich bin ein sehr disziplinierter Mensch. Ich stehe jeden Morgen auf, selbst wenn ich müde bin. Früher las ich Bücher und hatte Sex. Heute gehe ich mit dem Laptop ins Bett und gucke amerikanische Serien. Fünf leichte Mahlzeiten am Tag soll man essen: Ständig in der Küche herumfummeln, ohne zum Punkt zu kommen? Ich bevorzuge zwei Orgien täglich.­« Egal ob es um moderne Tugenden, Bettgeschichten, Ernährung oder andere Alltagsthemen geht, selten traut die langjährige BRIGITTE-­Kolumnistin Julia Karnick den offiziellen Darstellungen vom Leben, immer ist sie skeptisch, selbstkritisch, aufrichtig — und lustig.

Have you ever been called "too black" or "not black enough"? Have you ever befriended or worked with a black person? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this book is for you. Raised by a pro-­black, Pan-­Afrikan single mother during the crack years of 1980s Washington, DC, and educated at Sidwell Friends School and Harvard University, Baratunde Thurston has over thirty years' experience being black. Now, through stories of his politically inspired Nigerian name, the heroics of his hippie mother, the murder of his drug-­abusing father, and other revelatory black details, he shares with readers of all colors his wisdom and expertise in how to be black. Beyond memoir, this guidebook offers practical advice on everything from "How to Be The Black Friend" to "How to Be The (Next) Black President" to "How to Celebrate Black History Month.­" To provide additional perspective, Baratunde assembled an award-­winning Black Panel—three black women, three black men, and one white man . . .

“What is gamesmanship? Most difficult of questions to answer briefly. ‘The Art of Winning Games Without Actually Cheating’ – that is my personal ‘working definition’. What is its object? There have been five hundred books written on the subject of games. Five hundred books on play and the tactics of play. Not one on the art of winning.­” Stephen Potter has used his extensive experience as a master gamesman to compile this instructional text on the techniques, strategies and etiquette of gamesmanship. Here you will learn how to win games you have no idea how to play, and manoeuvre your opponents into losing when they really should be winning. This funny, charming book is brought to life with helpful diagrams, anecdotes and hilarious conversations. A must read for any sporting chap or chapette. It was first published in 1947.
