Product Description:

Practicing law is hard work, and being a mom is even harder! Are you a mommy and a lawyer? Are your children struggling to understand what you're up to while you're at work? Are you juggling a demanding career and little ones at home? Feeling guilty when you can't be there for every special moment with your child throughout the day? If so, this book is for you!

Molly Bowen wrote Mommy Lawyer to teach her children about her career but, more importantly, to give herself and other mommy lawyers a tool to help children be more understanding and proud of the fact that they have a working mother.

After taking the time to teach them about her career through Mommy Lawyer, Molly discovered that her kids more supportive and less disappointed when she occasionally missed a special day at school or didn't make it home in time to tuck them in. Mommy Lawyer not only provides children with a basic understanding of what lawyers do, it helps children see their working mother's career in a more positive light.

If you're a mommy lawyer trying to balance it all, Molly hopes this book will empower you and your family to engage about your career - and the challenges that come with it - in an effective and beneficial way.

Mommy Lawyer is the first of a series of children's books dedicated to developing a more compassionate and supportive relationship between working parents and their children.

Product Description:

Get the inside scoop on what venture capitalists want to see in your start-up

Venture Deals provides entrepreneurs and start-up owners with a definitive reference for understanding venture capital funding. More than an overview of the process, this book delves into the details of the term sheet, the players, the negotiations, the legalities, and more, including what not to do. This new third edition has been updated to reflect the new realities of today's intricate start-up environment: You'll learn how the decisions are made, what every item on the term sheet means, what's up for negotiation, and what's not. You'll discover the secrets to expanding your prospects, negotiating the right deal for your company, and figuring out the right balance of funding versus control. You'll see the process through the eyes of the venture capitalist, the angel investor, the syndicate, and the lawyer and develop a strategy that makes funding your company a win for all parties involved.

This book is designed to help entrepreneurs succeed by bringing transparency to the venture capital funding process. Veteran investors walk you through the process from start to finish and beyond to help you:

  • Understand how venture capital funds work and how investors decide to invest
  • Learn effective negotiation tactics based on game theory
  • Delve into the meanings behind the term sheet's economic and control issues
  • Avoid common issues that sink deals at the seed, early, mid, and late stages

Written by the experts at Foundry Group, this unique guide is expressly geared toward those on the other side of the table; instead of parsing investor-focused advice and working backward, you get actual insider information on what the people with the money want to see. If you're ready to take the next step for your business, Venture Deals is an essential listen.

Product Description:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Featured in the critically acclaimed documentary RBG

“The authors make this unassuming, most studious woman come pulsing to life. . . . Notorious RBG may be a playful project, but it asks to be read seriously. . . . That I responded so personally to it is a testimony to [its] storytelling and panache.”— Jennifer Senior, New York Times

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg never asked for fame—she has only tried to make the world a little better and a little freer.

But nearly a half-century into her career, something funny happened to the octogenarian: she won the internet. Across America, people who weren’t even born when Ginsburg first made her name as a feminist pioneer are tattooing themselves with her face, setting her famously searing dissents to music, and making viral videos in tribute.

Notorious RBG, inspired by the Tumblr that amused the Justice herself and brought to you by its founder and an award-winning feminist journalist, is more than just a love letter. It draws on intimate access to Ginsburg's family members, close friends, colleagues, and clerks, as well an interview with the Justice herself. An original hybrid of reported narrative, annotated dissents, rare archival photos and documents, and illustrations, the book tells a never-before-told story of an unusual and transformative woman who transcends generational divides. As the country struggles with the unfinished business of gender equality and civil rights, Ginsburg stands as a testament to how far we can come with a little chutzpah.
