Valerie Wyatt is the queen of gracious living and the arbiter of taste with a successful TV show. Since her long-ago divorce, she’s worked hard to reach the pinnacle of her profession and to create a camera-ready life in her Fifth Avenue penthouse. So why is she so depressed? All the hours with her personal trainer, the careful work of New York’s best hairdressers, cosmetic surgeons, and her own God-given bone structure and great looks can’t fudge the truth or her lies about it: Valerie is turning sixty. Valerie’s daughter, April, has no love life, no rest, and no prospect of that changing in the foreseeable future. Her popular one-of-a-kind restaurant in downtown New York, where she is chef and owner, consumes every ounce of her attention and energy. Ready or not, though, April’s life is about to change, in a tumultuous transformation that begins the morning it hits her: She’s thirty. And what does she have to show for it? A restaurant, no man, no kids. Jack Adams once threw a football like a guided missile. Twelve years after retiring from the NFL, he is the most charismatic sports analyst on TV, a man who has his pick of the most desirable twentysomething women. But after a particularly memorable Halloween party, Jack wakes up on his fiftieth birthday, his back thrown out of whack, feeling every year his age. A terrifying act of violence, an out-of-the-blue blessing, and two extremely unlikely love affairs soon turn lives inside out and upside down. In a novel brimming with warmth and insight, beginning on one birthday and ending on another, Valerie, April, and Jack discover that life itself can be a celebration — and that its greatest gifts are always a surprise. 1.

Pragmatic Insights for Successfully Managing Your Unique Agile Team or Organization In many organizations, management is the biggest obstacle to successful Agile development. Unfortunately, reliable guidance on Agile management has been scarce indeed. Now, leading Agile manager Jurgen Appelo fills that gap, introducing a realistic approach to leading, managing, and growing your Agile team or organization. Writing for current managers and developers moving into management, Appelo shares insights that are grounded in modern complex systems theory, reflecting the intense complexity of modern software development. Appelo's Management 3.0 model recognizes that today's organizations are living, networked systems; that you can't simply let them run themselves; and that management is primarily about people and relationships. Management 3.0 doesn't offer mere checklists or prescriptions to follow slavishly: rather it deepens your understanding of how organizations and Agile teams work, and gives you tools to solve your own problems. Drawing on his extensive experience as an Agile manager and trainer, Appelo identifies the most valuable elements of Agile management, and helps you improve each of them. Coverage includes Getting beyond "Management 1.0" command hierarchies, and "Management 2.0" fads Understanding how complexity and non-linearity affect your organization-and why the best-laid plans so often fail Giving teams the care and feeding they need to grow on their own Defining boundaries and constraints, so teams can succeed in alignment with company goals Anticipating issues teams won't or can't resolve by themselves Sowing the seeds for a culture of software craftsmanship Keeping your people active, creative, motivated, and energized Helping teams develop crucial missing skills and disciplines Crafting organizational networks and communication flows that promote success Making change desirable-and making stagnation painful Implementing continuous improvement that actually works Thoroughly pragmatic-and never trendy-Jurgen Appelo's Management 3.0 will help you bring greater agility to any software organization, team, or project.
