Not Your Mother´s Goose proves that fairy tales and nursery rhymes aren´t just for kids anymore. Envision it as the Cliffs Notes of children´s stories - if Cliffs Notes was overtaken by Dave Barry or the folks at The Onion. Not Your Mother´s Goose is a series of totally irreverent, mega-sarcastic fairy-tale recaps, along with a host of hilarious fake news stories and headlines ranging from Rapunzel getting a bikini wax to Old McDonald bombing on Wheel of Fortune after only buying vowels. The net result is a madcap trip that will leave you laughing all the way from Rumpelstiltskin´s Twitter feed to Humpty Dumpty´s Facebook page (where Jack is still trying to grow a beanstalk - in FarmVille). 1.

It´s no secret that women have long been overlooked and under-compensated, and while great strides have been made in recent decades, the value placed on women versus their male counterparts is still consistently unbalanced. In Knowing Your Value, bestselling author Mika Brzezinski takes an in-depth look at how women today achieve their deserved recognition and financial worth. Prompted by her own experience as co-host of Morning Joe, Mika interviews a number of prominent women across a wide range of industries on their experience moving up in their fields. Mika reveals how these women, including such impresarios as White House star Valerie Jarrett, comedian Susie Essman, writer and director Nora Ephron, Facebook´s Sheryl Sandberg, and broadcaster Joy Behar, navigated the inevitable roadblocks that are unique to women. Mika also uncovers what men think about the approach women take in the workplace, getting honest answers from Donnie Deutsch, Jack Welch, Donald Trump, and others about why women are paid less, and what pitfalls women face - and play into - as they try to get their worth at work. Knowing Your Value blends these personal stories and opinions with the latest research and polling on issues such as equal pay, women in the boardroom, and access to start-up capital.Written in Mika´s brutally honest, funny, and self-deprecating style, Knowing Your Value is a vital book for professional women of all ages. 1.

Scarsella spices [his tale] with saucy language when needed and street lingo where appropriate. He keeps the suspense at high level until the answers unfold. - The Buffalo News (May 31, 2015) Lawyers Gone Bad is the story of beleaguered attorney and disciplinary counsel, Dean Alessi, and his trusty investigator, Stu Foley, in their fight against lawyers who have gone bad; that is, lawyers who commit ethical and criminal wrongs. They are investigating the case of the local district attorney who may have committed the ultimate ethical crime of murder. Vincent Scarsella draws on his over 18 years of real-life experience as head of the Eighth Judicial District Grievance Committee in Buffalo, New York, to craft a gripping, suspenseful tale about lawyers who have gone bad. More than a crime story, this tale concerns friendship, loss, unrequited love, and ultimately, justice. It seeks to answer the question: Does what goes around, come around? Lawyers Gone Bad follows on the success of Vincent Scarsella’s debut crime novel, The Anonymous Man. ´´The Anonymous Man gets decent marks for creativity and intricacy...it´s a fast read that runs through familiar local settings to a satisfying conclusion. Scarsella has the makings of a good storyteller...he and [Jack] Fox could go places.´´ - The Buffalo News ´´I am really enjoying reading this book so far.´´ - Krystal H. (March 7, 2016) ´´Lawyers Gone Bad is so good!´´ - Gary L. Hosking (January 1, 2015) ´´Fantastic plot!´´ - Harry J Gawronski (April 8, 2015) Thank you for your interest.
