Wouldn't you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you? Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man's life. Knowing he was dying of ALS - or motor neurone disease - MItch visited Morrie in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final 'class': lessons in how to live.TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift with the world.

Adult attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can make even simple everyday tasks-like paying bills or getting groceries-extremely difficult. At the end of the day, you may feel unfocused, and life may seem unmanageable.However, this struggle isn't the result of an inability to pay attention, as is so widely believed. Studies now show that ADHD results from an inability to maintain attentiveness.Adults with adult ADHD can and often do focus on things they enjoy, but have trouble focusing on things that aren't as interesting to them. More and more, experts are acknowledging that, rather than a deficit of attention, ADHD is really about adjusting attention between hyperfocusing and underfocusing.Redefining ADHD draws on psychology, biology, neuroscience, sociology, and other disciplines to provide an innovative guide for learning how to better regulate your attention. Looking at ADHD through the framework of IPNB-a model that see's one's mind, brain, body, and relationships as intimately connected-you'll discover how to rewire your brain for better attention regulation and overall well-being.With the research-based exercises, tools, and techniques in this book, you'll learn how to effectively manage your attention so you can focus on what it is you need to do-and do it well.

By Alexandra Zapruder
Abraham Zapruder didn't know when he ran home to grab his video camera on November 22, 1963 that this single spontaneous decision would change his family's life for generations to come. Originally intended as a home movie of President Kennedy's motorcade, Zapruder's film of the JFK assassination is now shown in every American history class, included in Jeopardy and Trivial Pursuit questions, and referenced in novels and films. It is the most famous example of citizen journalism, a precursor to the iconic images of our time, such as the Challenger explosion, the Rodney King beating, and the 9/11 attack on the Twin Towers. But few know the complicated legacy of the film itself.Now Abraham's granddaughter, Alexandra Zapruder, is ready to tell the complete story for the first time. With the help of the Zapruder family's exclusive records, memories, and documents, Zapruder tracks the film's torturous journey through history, all while American society undergoes its own transformation, and a new media-driven consumer culture challenges traditional ideas of privacy, ownership, journalism, and knowledge. Part biography, part family history, and part historical narrative, Zapruder demonstrates how one man's unwitting moment in the spotlight shifted the way politics, culture, and media intersect, bringing about the larger social questions that define our age.
