WORK SUCKS!: A FUNNY VIEW OF A SERIOUS PROBLEM, by Spencer Borisoff  (Author)

Publisher: Richter Publishing LLC (June 29, 2018)

Nobody likes a bully. Even worse is when that bully picks on you. In adult life that bully has a name, the most vulgar four letter word of ‘em all, w-o-r-k. Work manhandles our adult population, causing mass suffering 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year. Recent polls and surveys have revealed that job satisfaction is at an all-time low in this country. The majority of Americans hate work but cannot escape its endless torture. Biting their tongues because they cannot risk losing their paychecks by speaking their minds, tens of millions of American workers have been crying out for help; for someone to stand up to the brazen bully and change his ways. “Work Sucks!” slaps the biggest, baddest, crudest, rudest bully the world has ever seen square on its jaw. Borisoff unleashes his unconventional take on conventional work topics like rush hour, bosses, the Sunday night shakes, performance reviews,alarm clocks, meaningless meetings, firings, and lightning-quick weekends. Borisoff’s tongue is fresh but his unique voice shouts and shares a universal message: Work Sucks!

SPENCER BORISOFF is a former journalist turned grouchy corporate stiff who has resigned from 30 corporate jobs by the time he turned 45 in order to keep a promise he made to himself as a boy: never settle for a job that sucks! Armed with a blistering tongue that is equal parts harsh and humorous, Borisoff tells the taboo truth about our labor-based existence that, until now, workers have only dared to whisper about. It is a truth that he is born to tell. Borisoff is a Philly boy who graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a bachelor’s degree in English Writing and now resides in Clearwater Beach, Florida with his wife, Helicia, and daughter, Baye. He is the son of Grammy nominated singer and song writer, Len Barry.

MOSTLY SUNNY: HOW I LEARNED TO KEEP SMILING THROUGH THE RAINIEST DAYS, by Janice Dean (Author)

Publisher: Harper (March 5, 2019)

Fox & Friends meteorologist Janice Dean explains how she purposefully finds the silver lining in every cloud, no matter what challenge she faces.
Janice is well-known for the infectious joy she brings to segments on Fox & Friends, no matter the weather. Yet many of her fans know there’s more to her story than blizzards that are brewing or National Pancake Day celebrations. In this honest yet optimistic book, Janice reveals obstacles she’s faced that could have severely impacted any professional woman’s career, from online trolls to health issues to abusive and sexist bosses. In Mostly Sunny, she talks about it all, including the fateful path meeting her firefighting husband after he lost his colleagues on 9/11; the day she had to talk to her two small children about her multiple sclerosis; and how the pressure on women in television led her to a cosmetic procedure that could have ended her career. But no matter what storms life throws at her, Janice refuses to let setbacks and challenges rain on her parade or cloud her outlook. Thanks to supportive coworkers and an upbeat attitude, she’s mastered turning countless would-be losses into victories. Now, she shares her stories, alternately funny, heartwarming, and touching, in the hopes that they will help others make it through their rainiest days.

JANICE DEAN is the senior meteorologist for the Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network. Dean joined FNC in January of 2004, reporting on some of the biggest weather stories in history such as Hurricane Katrina, and more recently, the Moore and El Reno 2013 tornadoes in Oklahoma. She also led the coverage on FNC of Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Janice is a member of the American Meteorological Society and was awarded the AMS Seal of Approval in 2009. Many viewers know Janice as “Janice Dean the Weather Machine,” a nickname that was given to her by Fox News Anchor Shepard Smith when he introduced her on his show Studio B.
