GREAT, SIMPLE ADVICE FROM YOUR BEST FRIEND Over her long and successful career as an educator, columnist, and psychologist, Marilyn Varadi counseled tens of thousands of people, sometimes one on one and other times in her classes or through the extensive reach of the news media. The heart of her advice, her secret, was as deceptively simple as it was profound: life is to enjoy, so don't complicate it. This belief permeated her everyday thoughts and actions. That principle, sweetened with her personal touch, resonated in Marilyn's popular newspaper column in the Tower Times. The column ran for more than five years and was read by thousands of avid, enthusiastic readers, many of whom would often write letters or send e-mails asking for advice. Now, for the first time, here is the complete collection of those wonderful, insightful columns. Enjoy! "A thoroughly enjoyable book that answers so many questions about life-its trials and tribulations. Marilyn says it like it is!"- Paula Zahn, Emmy Award-winning journalist, television anchor, and host of "On The Case" "Marilyn Varadi's voice may be silenced, but her words live on. They offer wisdom, warmth, and good old common sense."-Susan Isaacs, New York Times best-selling author "Marilyn's confidence, caring, and intellect are evident to her friends and readers alike. She is at her best when being truthful, humorous, and, above all, insightfully sensible."-Leslie and Arnold Gussin "Right on target... Charming and hits home."-Assemblyman Ed Braunstein, District 26, Bayside, New York

An Egyptologist investigates a death at the British Museum in this “charming” historical mystery by the New York Times–bestselling author of The Painted Queen (The Denver Post). Back in London after an archaeological dig, adventurous sleuth Amelia Peabody—“rather like Indiana Jones, Sherlock Holmes and Miss Marple all rolled into one”—discovers that a night watchman at the museum has perished in the shadow of a mummy case (The Washington Post Book World). There are murmurings about an ancient curse, but a skeptical Amelia is determined to find an all-too-human killer. Soon, she’s balancing family demands, including the troubles of her precocious son, Ramses (aka Walter), with not just one unsolved crime, but two . . . From a recipient of multiple honors including the Mystery Writers of America’s Grand Master Award, this murder mystery set in Victorian-era England is a witty, rollicking, and “deeply satisfying” romp (Entertainment Weekly) in a “jewel of a series” (The New York Times Book Review).
