A captivating blend of reportage and personal narrative, Let’s Get Physical explores the untold history of women’s exercise culture—from jogging and Jazzercise to Jane Fonda—and how women have parlayed physical strength into other forms of power.

From the money nerds behind the award-winning Stacking Benjamins podcast, Stacked is a new kind of personal finance book to get your house in order.

Can we have both freedom and love? Comfort and lust? Open is an unprecedented exploration of polyamory from an award-winning journalist chronicling her first open relationship. With an unflinching eye, Open is groundbreaking in both its documentarian approach and its explicit subject matter.
