    What is a wiseman? What is a prophet? Someone with a strange, unflappable demeanor. Someone who speaks in cryptic koans, words whose meanings take years to unravel. Someone who has confronted death, God, sin, and the immortal soul. Someone unfit for this world, but too brilliant to depart it. Someone--in short--like Keith Richards. Here, at last, the wisdom of this indefatigable man is recorded and set forth. These are his visionary words: "I would rather be a legend than a dead legend." Or "Whatever side I take, I know well that I will be blamed." And--indeed--"I've never had a problem with drugs, only with policemen." Not merely a compendium of wisdom, this book is also a complete guide to the inner workings of a complex and inspired belief system, and the life of a man sanctified by fame. What Would Keith Richards Do reminds us to learn from our mistakes, let our instincts lead us, and above all, do what Keith has done better than anyone--survive.

    Problem Dog? You Can't Train Your Dog If You Don't Speak Dog! Amy Morford is a dog whisperer. She's been training dogs for more than two decades and understands what makes your dog tick. How to Speak Dog provides a general overview of dog behavior before specifically focusing in on training solutions for six of the most common dog misbehaviors: aggression, digging, nuisance barking, fear biting, submissive urination, and separation anxiety. Morford understands that not everyone understands "dog talk" so she kicks off by introducing basic obedience training methods. She explains each training situation by breaking it down into chronological micro-steps. How to Speak Dog is as close as one gets to hiring a dog trainer without actually hiring one. Morford has made the process as simple as possible, with six chapters written in "plain English" to eliminate ambiguity so the training process is easy and less stressful for both the teacher and the student. In addition to covering basic training and the elimination of problem behavior patterns, Morford also discusses clicker training, crate training methods, and the use of positive reinforcement. If you've been struggling to resolve problem dog behaviors or just adopted a new dog and want to be sure that your new household member is well-behaved and well-trained, you've got to learn "dog talk." This "how-to" dog training guide will ease the way to optimum communication with your canine best friend. Details About This Book - Instructs dog owners on how to resolve the most common "problem" behaviors - Includes step-by-step basic dog training tips. - Provides in-depth analysis of a variety of common training methods - Includes a chapter especially tailored to training specific dog breeds - Written by an experienced dog trainer with more than 20 years of experience working with all types of dogs.

    From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julia Kent... 
    Giving up is hard…but giving in is even harder. 
    When did my life become a demented episode from The Mindy Project? 
    Moving to Boston to begin grad school meant I was supposed to start a new life -- not dig through a past I thought I'd left behind four years ago. But when I saw the poster for Random Acts of Crazy, all I could think about was the drummer, Sam Hinton, the boy I'd loved in high school and who disappeared with my heart. 
    Who knew I'd become the living version of Magic Mike? 
    Seeing Amy Smithson at my gig and watching her win a kiss from my bandmate, Liam, was a gut punch. Four years ago we squared off in a high school debate that had higher stakes than we ever imagined, and here I was…kissing her and wanting more. Are there too many secrets between us to allow her to trust me again? 
    And can I trust myself? 
    The second book in the Random series after the wildly successful New York Times and USA Today bestseller Random Acts of Crazy, Random Acts of Trust is a New Adult romantic comedy that explores the love between one man, one woman, and ends with one Happily Ever After (and no cliffhangers!).  
    Fate took their lives by storm four years ago and put an unbreathable gulf between Sam and Amy. This 87,000 word/346 page book asks: Can time really heal all wounds…or are some scars too deep?
