Over 40 million Americans have seen Dateline NBC´s ongoing ´´To Catch a Predator´´ series, with an average of 11 million viewers per episode. So far, the Dateline series has led to the arrest of over 200 men and has shown that child predators can be anyone: even those who are the most trusted in the community, including rabbis and teachers. In his book To Catch a Predator, Chris Hansen, the on-air correspondent for one of Dateline´s most successful series, looks deeper into the world of child predators. The book expands beyond the Dateline series to include more commentary from psychological and criminal experts about the origins and methods of child predators, and includes substantive advice for both parents and children on how to protect kids who use the Internet. Hansen also looks at the current methods for treating child predators. To Catch a Predator presents a strong analysis of what some feel is a child-predator epidemic and a startling look at the shortcomings of our systems and society. 1. Language: English.

By the author of the beloved Schmidt series, Memories of a Marriage is a penetrating look at class and privilege, shifting from Paris to Manhattan, Long Island to Newport. Mourning his wife and daughter, and on the edge of old age, Philip reencounters an astonishing woman from his past: Lucy De Bourgh, an heiress who was once a passionate debutante and the intimate of many men, including Philip himself. As she reveals the startling details of her failed marriage to Thomas Snow-a townie turned powerful international banker, liked by many but to her a loathsome monster-Philip discovers a story that will challenge his assumptions about those he has known, admired, and desired. A triumph by an author expert in revealing the good breeding and bad behavior of the moneyed elite, Memories of a Marriage is an eloquent and irresistible book that explores all the varieties of love and the very concept of truth.

From the pink ribbons to the chat rooms to the web sites that sell related accessories and stuffed animals, breast cancer has morphed from a disease into an experience. And at every step of the way, society tells women that this experience can teach them profound lessons, transform them into wiser, more insightful people, and maybe even give them a peek at the meaning of life. But what if it doesn´t? Five Lessons I Didn´t Learn from Breast Cancer is Shelley Lewis´ thoroughly modern, slightly contrarian take on ´´doing´´ breast cancer in an epiphany-free zone, where the goal is simply to get through it and get the hell back to your life. Proving chemotherapy can eradicate everything except a sense of humor. Lewis shares her five strategies for coping, and then reveals the real, not-so-meaningful insights learned from breast cancer, including ´´If you honestly think breast cancer is a gift, you can´t come to my birthday´´ and ´´Lie to yourself (it´s sooo helpful)´´. A wonderful interweaving of the author´s personal story, interviews with breast cancer survivors, and a sharp-eyed journalist´s look at the breast cancer ´´community´´, Five Lessons is full of unconventional wisdom, unexpected advice, and hilarious observations about life inside the pink bubble. 1.
