"Instantly engaging and eminently accessible . . . . an enlightening and cautionary exploration of an increasingly intrusive aspect of modern society." —Booklist While the Internet can enhance well-being, Elias Aboujaoude has spent years treating patients whose lives have been profoundly disturbed by it. Part of the danger lies in how the Internet allows us to act with exaggerated confidence, sexiness, and charisma. Aboujaoude dubs this new self our “e-personality” and argues that its traits are too potent to be confined online. Offline, too, we’re becoming impatient, unfocused, and urge-driven. Virtually You draws from Aboujaoude’s personal and professional experience to highlight this new phenomenon. The first scrutiny of the virtual world’s transformative power on our psychology, Virtually You demonstrates how real life is being reconfigured in the image of a chat room, and how our identity increasingly resembles that of our avatar.

Can you call it an office romance if we've never actually met? Sara has a kick-ass life. She has loyal friends, works from home, and sets her own hours as a virtual assistant. Perfect... Except that Sara doesn't actually exist. She's just a borrowed name I use when I'm hiding behind my computer screen. Because my real name - Andi Clark - has too much baggage attached to it. And pretending to be someone else is the only way I can earn enough to make up for the mistake I made and the lives I ruined. If I hadn't typed my new boss' name into that search engine, everything would've stayed on track. I would've kept imagining Hayden looking the same as I pictured all my clients - late fifties/early sixties, a little soft around the middle, and a lot more forehead than hair. Unfortunately, I couldn't have been more wrong. Seriously, how many VPs of billion-dollar companies look like they model underwear after leaving the office? Damn it, if I'd never found out what an amazing man Hayden is, I wouldn't want to cry every time he calls me Sara. But hey, that's life, right? And nobody's life is perfect. Actually... My name is Hayden Bennet, and my life is pretty damn perfect. I’m married to a beautiful woman, live in a luxury apartment, and am prepped to take over the multi-billion-dollar company my father built. Perfect... Except all of it is a lie. My wife is madly in love with someone else, my career is meaningless, and I’ve forgotten how to live, let alone be happy. Until I hired a new online assistant, I thought life was meant to be endured. It isn’t. It’s meant to be lived. Enjoyed. And yeah, loved. Without Sara, I would’ve missed all of it. It’s crazy. I’d give up everything I have to be with her, and I still have no idea what she looks like. Unfortunately, the only way to get what I want is for a lot of good people to lose everything. *This standalone workplace romance is a modern fairytale retelling, complete with a happily ever after. Along with a lot of snark, some angst, and a very noble, very honorable alpha male. I promise - Hayden doesn't cheat on his wife. He's too good to hurt and disrespect a woman like that. Trust me, you'll understand when you read the book. Now Available Darker Water (Once and Forever #1) Deeper Water (Once and Forever #3) Immaterial Defense (Once and Forever #4) ~ This highly-anticipated sequel to DARKER WATER is a standalone contemporary romance inspired by Sleeping Beauty. VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE is Hayden and Andi's story, and this is how their fairytale begins: Once upon a time there was a woman who made the mistake of trusting the wrong man. And that mistake led to another. And another and another, each more damaging than the last. But the woman was as ignorant of her mistakes as she was of the damage they caused. Until she was punished for them. Around the same time, but in a totally separate part of the city, lived a nobleman and his beautiful wife. Though their castle was the envy of all, its empty halls echoed of loneliness and regret. For the man had lived his entire life asleep, and both of them remained silent of who they truly were and what they truly wanted. And then one day, the woman entered the man's life and forced him to awaken...

This book, the fruit of the author’s three decades of experience planning and implementing remote working environments, provides expert guidance for anyone planning a shift to remote working, managing teams of teleworkers, or themselves working in a virtual team. The author’s key message is that, in an environment where there is no face to face and informal contact, virtual working requires the creation of a matrix of distributed teams, and that their success depends on the right preparation, changing corporate culture and rewards, and implementing appropriate strategies at the management level to create team cohesion and motivate team members. Working Virtually is for the executive leading changes in an enterprise that is preparing for virtual work or seeking to improve current performance. It offers tools to assess readiness, advice on creating appropriate reward policies, and strategies to adapt performance management processes to be more team-driven and technology leveraged.

It provides an understanding of the roles and responsibilities of managing a virtual team, offering a wealth of advice on creating the conditions for collaboration, motivating team members, and identifying and defusing problems.

“Attention reveals a fresh, vital literary voice as it covers seemingly every imaginable topic relating to modern life.”—Entertainment Weekly “Joshua Cohen may be America’s greatest living writer.”—The Washington Post NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY WIRED One of Granta’s Best of Young American Novelists, Joshua Cohen arrives with his first collection of nonfiction, the culmination of two decades of writing and thought about life in the digital age. In essays, memoir, criticism, diary entries, and letters—many appearing here for the first time—Cohen covers the full depth and breadth of modern life: politics, literature, art, music, travel, the media, and psychology, and subjects as diverse as Google, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, fictional animals, Gustav Mahler, Aretha Franklin, John Zorn, landscape photography, fake Caravaggios, Wikipedia, Gertrude Stein, Edward Snowden, Jonathan Franzen, Olympic women’s fencing, Atlantic City casinos, the closing of the Ringling Bros. circus, and Azerbaijan. Throughout ATTENTION, Cohen directs his sharp gaze at home and abroad, calling upon his extraordinary erudition and unrivaled ability to draw connections between seemingly unlike things to show us how to live without fear in a world overflowing with information. In each piece, he projects a quality of thought that is uniquely his, and a voice as witty, profound, and distinct as any in American letters. At this crucial juncture in history, ATTENTION is a guide for the perplexed—a handbook for anyone hoping to bring the wisdom of the past into the culture of the future. Praise for ATTENTION “Dazzling in its scope . . . If curiosity is a writer’s greatest innate gift, Joshua Cohen may be America’s greatest living writer.”—The Washington Post “Cause for celebration and close study . . . [Cohen] will hunt after neglected shards of the past, minor histories, and charge them with an immediacy in the present. . . . He is experimenting with the essay form much more, and more cleverly, than any major American writer today.”—The Wall Street Journal “In Attention, Joshua Cohen makes an eclectic argument for how to improve our lives. . . . [He] tackles a surprising range of subjects to underline distraction’s role in our fraught predicament and to argue that paying attention could help us get out of it. . . . When it comes to making sense of our times with verve and imagination, few authors are more rewarding.”—Financial Times
