Policies, the company that's come to embody socially responsible business has drawn the skepticism of business analysts, the criticism of media cynics, and the amazement - and ultimately, the respect - of the business world and the people in it. As Ben and Jerry explain in Double-Dip, they haven't always known exactly what they were doing, but they've always known why they were doing it. There's a method to their madness; that method is what they call "values-led

"Looking into the lives of these young people, in this American town, at this time in history, we see more than what's true - and what's possible - for Berkeley High. We see what's true and what's possible for America."--Jacket

The new old me : my late-life reinvention by Meredith Maran( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Turning 60 and beginning again can be daunting, especially in the midst of serious personal events. Book critic and author (Why We Write About Ourselves) Maran reinvented herself at just this turning point, after a painful breakup with her wife, the death of a close friend, and harsh financial setbacks. Leaving home, friends, and a freelance writing career behind, she moved from San Francisco to Los Angeles to begin a nine-to-five life out of necessity. What followed were struggles with housing, money, work culture, and the eccentricities of her youth-oriented new city. Her loneliness was pervasive and intensified. Through honest and vividly drawn scenes, she shares her grief and challenges. However, she artfully balances this with humor and keen perspective, and what emerges is another side to her story, one of resilient courage as she embraces her new surroundings with an open mind, reaches out to make new friends, rekindles her creative self, and re-enters the dating scene. A unifying, inspiring, and universal theme builds throughout: despite age and circumstances, it is never too late to start anew
My lie : a true story of false memory by Meredith Maran( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Journalist Meredith Maran lived a daughter's nightmare: she accused her father of sexual abuse, then realized, nearly too late, that he was innocent. During the 1980s and 1990s, tens of thousands of Americans became convinced that they had repressed memories of childhood sexual abuse, and then, decades later, recovered those memories in therapy. Maran was one of them. Her accusation and estrangement from her father divided her family into those who believed her and those who didn't, and led her to isolate herself among "survivors" who devoted their lives, and life savings, to recovering memories of events that had never occurred. Exploring the psychological, cultural, and neuroscientific causes of this modern American witch-hunt, Maran asks how so many people could come to believe the same lie at the same time? And perhaps more importantly: what are the "big lies" gaining traction in American culture today--and how can we keep them from taking hold?--From publisher description

The new old me : my late-life reinvention by Meredith Maran( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For readers of Anne Lamott, Abigail Thomas, and Ayelet Waldman, a "lusty, kickass*" post-divorce memoir, one woman's story of starting over at 60-in youth-obsessed, beauty-obsessed Hollywood. After the death of her best friend, the loss of her life's savings, and the collapse of her once-happy marriage, Meredith Maran-whom Anne Lamott calls "insightful, funny, and human"-leaves her San Francisco freelance writer's life for a 9-to-5 job in Los Angeles. Determined to rebuild not only her savings but herself while relishing the joys of life in La-La land, Maran writes "a poignant story, a funny story, a moving story, and above all an American story of what it means to be a woman of a certain age in our time" (Christina Baker Kline, number-one New York Times-bestselling author of Orphan Train). ADVANCE PRAISE for THE NEW OLD ME: "High time we had a book that celebrates becoming an elder! Meredith Maran writes of the difficulties of loss and change and aging, but makes it clear that getting on can be more interesting, more fun, and a lot more exciting than youth." -Abigail Thomas, author of the New York Timesbestseller What Comes Next and How to Like It "The New Old Me is a book I don't just want to read-I need to read it. So does everyone else who's getting older and wants to live fully, with immediacy and enjoyment, which is to say, everyone." -Anne Lamott, author of the New York Times bestsellers Bird by Bird and Some Assembly Required "Meredith Maran is my new role model for getting older without getting old." -Kate Christensen,author of the PEN/Faulkner award winner The Great Man*

Behind the bedroom door : getting it, giving it, loving it, missing it( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We may not admit it, but we're all curious about what goes on in other people's bedrooms. After all, we live in a world saturated with sex, which makes it tough not to wonder how we measure up'and even tougher to talk about our intimate experiences honestly. In this frank, poignant collection, twenty-six acclaimed writers go Behind the Bedroom Door and lay bare the messy, mind-blowing, often hilarious encounters that make up a woman's history. By sharing their stories, authors like Susan Cheever, Hope Edelman, and Julie Powell bravely open a window on the passions, predilections and problems that we encounter between the sheets. In doing so, they reassure us that whatever we feel, whatever we do or don't do in the bedroom, we're not alone. Telling the truth about sex'how we like it, how often we get it, how it affects us'isn't easy. This eye-opening anthology tells the truth about women's intimate lives, shattering some deeply entrenched myths about what goes on in the bedrooms of real women along the way: Susan Cheever upends conventional notions about women, sex, and sentiment in her essay "In Praise of One-Night Stands."' Sex is the last thing on Lauren Slater's mind when the bestselling author and psychologist reveals a few surprising truths, even joys, about her virtually sexless marriage in "Overcome."' Julie Powell serves up a searing chronicle of an illicit affair in "Lost in Space"; and novelist Valerie Frankel takes a decidedly lighter view in "Ouch, You're Lying on My Hair." Whether you're twenty or seventy, single or perpetually coupled up, these frank, seriously sexy essays provide a deeply illuminating, ultimately comforting no-holds-barred look at our most private selves. Gutsy and provocative, they reveal a great deal about how far we've come'and how far we still have to go. From the Hardcover edition
