Comprising selections from "Balancing Act," the weekly column from Chicago Tribune lifestyle writer Heidi Stevens, this book is a colorful look at contemporary parenting and the joys and challenges that accompany being a worker, parent, partner, and individual. Through poignant professional interviews and endearing personal stories, Stevens offers advice on juggling life and work in a not-always obliging world. Her experience as a mother of two small children and her journey from divorce to remarriage inform her lighthearted yet thoughtful tone in this deeply personal collection. The columns reflect on the challenges today's working parents face, and offer advice on how to find pleasure in daily tasks, focus your energy, and seek joy in small moments. Balancing Act empathizes with parents during those moments of feeling adrift without a guide. It delivers sage advice through Stevens’s journalistic diligence, asking experts and investigating both sides of a story. What sets this book apart most is the warm, open writing style that makes Stevens one of the Chicago Tribune’s most popular columnists. Readers can reflect on the ups and downs of being a parent, professional, and individual, while taking Balancing Act’s central theme to heart by learning to worry less and enjoy more.
These articles present the real thoughts and feelings of everyday average atheists. We are friends and family. We are doctors and lawyers. We are pharmacists, biologists, and engineers. We are ordinary people who see a universe that is bigger than any god man has ever imagined. For billions of people around the globe, god and religion are the biggest things in their lives. Even for those not very devout believers, their belief is a part of how they think about themselves and for most of them god is very big. However, for a small minority of people the idea of god is small and pitiful. We look out into the universe and see something so amazing that it could not possibly be the work of these tiny imagined gods of mankind. These gods whom we are given that display such ignoble traits as jealousy and outright hubris. We see the harm that religion brings to humanity. We see the injustice, inequality, and division amongst men that it causes. We see humanity being stifled by these religions and these tiny gods. We at Atheist Republic have a message we have steadily tried to convey. That message is that we as human beings are bigger than these imaginary gods. We believe that humanity is greater than gods and doctrines.
Do you occasionally suffer from bouts of rationality, cognizance and literacy? Are you constantly baffled by the failure of your fellow hominids to comprehend simple principles like evidence, statistical significance, confirmation bias and logic? Do your jaws ache from constantly holding your tongue in polite company? Do you find yourself tempted to stand on tables and scream "The bible also says rabbits chew their cud! That's not an allegory and I'm not reading it out of context, you frothing nincompoops, it's just wrong!"? Then this may be the book for you. The Scathing Atheist is a weekly podcast about religion that uses all the expletives the subject deserves. In its first year of production, host Noah Lugeons has earned a reputation for vindictive wit that is on full display in these fifty essays; each an expanded version of a tirade that first appeared on the podcast. More than a third of the book is all new material so whether you're a fan of The Scathing Atheist podcast or just a fan of vulgar and blasphemous wordplay, these bite-sized nuggets of vitriolic rationality are the perfect catharsis for atheists who are too polite to tell people what they really think.

A National Bestseller From the creator of the iconic "Cathy" comic strip comes her first collection of funny, wise, poignant, and incredibly honest essays about being a woman in what she lovingly calls "the panini generation." As the creator of "Cathy," Cathy Guisewite found her way into the hearts of readers more than forty years ago, and has been there ever since. Her hilarious and deeply relatable look at the challenges of womanhood in a changing world became a cultural touchstone for women everywhere. Now Guisewite returns with her signature wit and warmth in this debut essay collection about another time of big transition, when everything starts changing and disappearing without permission: aging parents, aging children, aging self stuck in the middle. With her uniquely wry and funny admissions and insights, Guisewite unearths the humor and horror of everything from the mundane (trying to introduce her parents to TiVo and facing four decades' worth of unorganized photos) to the profound (finding a purpose post-retirement, helping parents downsize their lives, and declaring freedrom from all those things that hold us back). No longer confined to the limits of four comic panels, Guisewite holds out her hand in prose form and becomes a reassuring companion for those on the threshold of "what happens next." Heartfelt and humane and always cathartic, Fifty Things That Aren't My Fault is ideal reading for mothers, daughters, and anyone who is caught somewhere in between.
