A RICHARD AND JUDY AUTUMN BOOK CLUB PICK SHORTLISTED FOR THE BEST FIRST NOVEL AWARD 'One of the funniest, quirkiest books either of us has read for a long time ... stand by for a slam-bam finish' Richard & Judy Book Club 'The Cactus will be compared to Gail Honeyman's appealingly eccentric Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine' Sunday Times It's never too late to bloom ... People aren't sure what to make of Susan Green. Family and colleagues find her prickly and hard to understand - but Susan makes perfect sense to herself. Age 45, she thinks her life is perfect, as long as she avoids her feckless brother, Edward - a safe distance away in Birmingham. She has a London flat which is ideal for one; a job that suits her passion for logic; and a personal arrangement providing cultural and other, more intimate, benefits. Yet suddenly faced with the loss of her mother and, implausibly, with the possibility of becoming a mother herself, Susan's greatest fear is being realised: she is losing control. And things can only get worse ... at least in Susan's eyes. This sparkling debut is a breath of fresh air with real heart and a powerful emotional punch. In Susan we find a character as exasperating and delightful as The Rosie Project's Don Tillman. An uncompromising feminist and a fierce fighter, it's a joy to watch her bloom. 'Quirky, poignant and extremely readable' Sunday Mirror 'Brilliantly comic' The Lady 'Wonderfully funny and astute' Red 'Funny, compelling, well-written...for fans of Marian Keyes who demand a bit of grit in their comic writing' Emerald Street

America's premier folk detective is back on the case, sniffing out those zany but dubious stories that "really happened" to a friend of your sister's boyfriend's accountant's mechanic. Jan Harold Brunvand—''Mr. Urban Legend" [Smithsonian]—tracks the most fabulous tales making today's cocktail-party circuit and shows why those stories that sound too good to be true probably are too good to be true. The eponymous episode—"The Baby Train"—sheds light on certain predawn activities that have linked unusually high birth rates to the whim of train schedule makers. Other stories offer a revealing peek behind the story of "The Exploding Bra," expose the embarrassing source of "The Hairdresser's Error," resurrect a "Failed Suicide" Buster Keaton would have died for, and show why adults are better off not bringing their comic book fantasies out of the closet. From "Superhero Hijinx" to "The Shocking Videotape" to "The Accidental Cannibal," The Baby Train uncovers the mysteries behind some of the bawdiest, goriest, funniest, most pyrotechnic urban legends yet.

In SMARTCUTS nimmt der New Yorker Journalist Shane Snow das unkonventionelle Verhalten diverser Overachiever der Geschichte unter die Lupe: Menschen und Unternehmen, die in unwahrscheinlich kurzer Zeit unglaubliche Dinge zuwege bringen. Und er zeigt, wie jeder von uns mit »Smartcuts« seine Gewohnheiten überdenken und seinen Erfolg beschleunigen kann. Warum ziehen manche Unternehmen in wenigen Monaten Millionen Kunden an, während andere floppen? Wie schafften es Alexander der Große, YouTube-Phänomen Michelle Phan und Tonight-Show-Moderator Jimmy Fallon, sich in kürzerer Zeit an die Spitze zu katapultieren, als die meisten von uns auf die nächste bescheidene Gehaltserhöhung warten müssen? Wie setzen sich schnell wachsende Unternehmen, Weltklasse-Herzchirurgen und Underdog-Vermarkter von der Masse ab? In allen Bereichen gibt es Querdenker, die wie Computerhacker neue und bessere Wege finden, um Erstaunliches zu bewerkstelligen. Seit jeher werden die größten Erfolge von jenen Menschen errungen, die sich weigern, den ausgetretenen Pfaden zu folgen, und sich über die Norm hinwegsetzen. In SMARTCUTS widerlegt Snow so manches vermeintliches Erfolgsrezept; er zeigt, warum es zwecklos ist, die »Mühlen zu durchlaufen«, warum Schulkinder keine Multiplikationstabellen auswendig zu lernen brauchen und warum es einfacher ist, ein großes anstelle eines kleinen Unternehmens aufzubauen. SMARTCUTS berichtet von Innovatoren, die es gewagt haben, anders zu arbeiten, und bietet Ihnen praktische Tipps. Sie lernen, wie Sie unternehmerische und technologische Begriffe auf den Erfolg anwenden können und wie auch Sie durch Nachahmung Ihren Wettbewerbern den Rang ablaufen, Ihr Unter nehmen wachsen lassen und Gesellschaftsprobleme schneller lösen können, als Sie es für möglich gehalten hätten.
