Diet and the Disease of Civilization
by Adrienne Rose Bitar

Diet books contribute to a $60-billion industry as they speak to the 45 million Americans who diet every year. Yet these books don’t just tell readers what to eat: they offer complete philosophies about who Americans are and how we should live. Diet and the Disease of Civilization interrupts the predictable debate about eating right to ask a hard question: what if it’s not calories—but concepts—that should be counted?

Cultural critic Adrienne Rose Bitar reveals how four popular diets retell the “Fall of Man” as the narrative backbone for our national consciousness. Intensifying the moral panic of the obesity epidemic, they depict civilization itself as a disease and offer diet as the one true cure. 

Bitar reads each diet—the Paleo Diet, the Garden of Eden Diet, the Pacific Island Diet, the detoxification or detox diet—as both myth and manual, a story with side effects shaping social movements, driving industry, and constructing fundamental ideas about sickness and health. Diet and the Disease of Civilization unearths the ways in which diet books are actually utopian manifestos not just for better bodies, but also for a healthier society and a more perfect world. 


The Addictocarb Diet
by Bruce Roseman

There’s a reason diets don’t work. Science has shown that a class of carbohydrates, called “Addictocarbs,” light up the brain’s pleasure and addiction centers and make it almost impossible to eat them in moderation. If you’ve experienced overwhelming, irresistible cravings for things like bread, cookies, soda, or potatoes, then you’ve encountered these Addictocarbs firsthand.

If you’re struggling to lose weight, counting calories and shrinking portions are not the answers. The answer lies in how your brain reacts when you eat these Addictocarbs—and how you can use this knowledge to help you break the addictive cycle.

It’s called the Addictocarb Diet, and it’s a cure—not a fad.

After losing his father at an early age to obesity-related illness and a lifetime of struggling with his own weight and diabetes as a result, Bruce Roseman, M.D., transformed his life and the lives of close to a thousand of his patients with this simple and effective diet based on the latest findings in addiction neuroscience.

The Addictocarb Diet: Avoid the 9 Highly Addictive Carbs While Eating Anything Else You Want explains that weight gain stems from our addiction to these nine carbs, proven by new brain imaging techniques from the emerging field of addiction neuroscience.

Unlike fad diets, the Addictocarb Diet not only helps you easily lose weight and keep it off, but also improves your overall health and can be beneficial for almost anyone, including those struggling with gluten or lactose sensitivities, prostate problems, diabetes, and other ailments.

This book equips you with tools for success, including tips for handling dietary lapses and navigating fast-food challenges. It also supplies recipes, sample meal plans, and answers to frequently asked questions from hundreds of Dr. Roseman’s patients. Stop fighting cravings and take control with The Addictocarb Diet.

Your struggle with weight loss ends here. Reclaim control of your health and well-being with The Addictocarb Diet.


The Sirtfood Diet
by Aidan Goggins, Glen Matten

Discover the original international diet sensation—used by Adele, heavyweight champion David Haye, and Pippa Middleton—that will help you lose seven pounds in seven days while experiencing lasting energy and eating all the foods you love.

Over the past few years, fasting has become a popular diet option. Studies show that fasting—whether through moderate calorie restriction every day or the more severe but less frequent intermittent fasting—can help people lose about thirteen to fourteen pounds in six months and reduce their risk of developing disease.

When we fast, our body’s energy stores activate what is known as sirtuins, or the “skinny gene,” and many positive changes ensue. Fat storage is switched off, and our body stops its normal growth processes and goes into “survival” mode. Fat burning is stimulated and the genes involved in the repair and rejuvenation of our cells are turned on—which all results to weight loss and improved resistance to disease. But if not done correctly, fasting can lead to hunger, irritability, fatigue, and loss of muscle.

Enter Sirtfoods: a newly discovered group of foods that is revolutionizing healthy eating. Ranging from chocolate and red wine to garlic and walnuts, sirtfoods are particularly rich in special nutrients that help us activate the same skinny genes in our bodies that fasting triggers. Nutritionists Aidan Goggins and Glen Matten have created The Sirtfood Diet to help you effectively lose weight and improve your resistance to disease, while still giving you incredible energy and glowing health.

It includes more than 1,500 options customized for: carboholics, meat lovers, chicken and seafood fans, chocoholics, fast-food junkies, and even vegans! What are you waiting for? Dig in.

Bright Line Eating
by Susan Peirce Thompson, PHD

Bright Line Eating has helped thousands of people from over 75 countries lose all their excess weight and keep it off. Are you ready to join them?

In this book, Susan Peirce Thompson, Ph.D. shares the groundbreaking weight-loss solution based on her highly acclaimed Bright Line Eating Boot Camps. Rooted in cutting-edge neuroscience, psychology, and biology, Bright Line Eating explains why people who are desperate to lose weight fail again and again:

It’s because the brain blocks weight loss.

Bright Line Eating (BLE) is a simple approach designed to reverse that process. By working with four “Bright Lines” — clear, unambiguous, boundaries — Susan Peirce Thompson shows us how to heal our brain and shift it into a mode where it is ready to shed pounds, release cravings, and stop sabotaging our weight loss goals.

Best of all, it is a program that understands that willpower cannot be relied on, and sets us up to be successful anyway.

Through the lens of Susan’s own moving story, and those of her Bright Lifers, you’ll discover firsthand why traditional diet and exercise plans have failed in the past. You’ll also learn about the role addictive susceptibility plays in your personal weight-loss journey, where cravings come from, how to rewire your brain so they disappear, and more. Susan guides you through the phases of Bright Line Eating —from weight loss to maintenance and beyond —and offers a dynamic food plan that will work for anyone, whether you’re vegan, gluten-free, paleo, or none of the above.

Bright Line Eating frees us from the obesity cycle and introduces a radical plan for sustainable weight loss. It’s a game changer in a game that desperately needs changing.

“Bright Line Eating ushers in an end to cravings, an end to dieting, an end to that constant, exhausting, soul-sucking loop in your head about food and calories and pounds. . . . Living Happy, Thin, and Free is your birthright.” — Susan Peirce Thompson

The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet
by Michael Mosley

Discover the groundbreaking method to defeat diabetes without drugs using the step-by-step diet plans and recipes from #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. Michael Mosley.

The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet is a radical new approach to the biggest health epidemic threatening us today…

Our modern diet, high in low-quality carbohydrates, is damaging our bodies—producing a constant overload of sugar in our bloodstream that clogs up our arteries and piles hidden fat into our internal organs. The result has been a doubling in the number of type 2 diabetics, as well as a surge in those with a potentially hazardous condition—prediabetes. It is now known that even moderately elevated blood sugar levels can trigger heart disease, stroke, dementia, and cancer.

But scientists have recently demonstrated that you can prevent and even reverse type 2 diabetes with a simple change in diet and lifestyle. Drawing on the work of Dr. Roy Taylor—one of the UK’s foremost diabetes experts—and his own experience as a one-time diabetic, Dr. Michael Mosley presents a groundbreaking, science-based, 8-week plan for diabetics who want to reverse their condition (and then stay off medication). He also offers a more flexible regime for people interested in the extensive health benefits to be gained from lowering their blood sugar levels and shedding dangerous fat.

As Dr. Mosley says, it is never too late to act.


The FastDiet Cookbook
by Mimi Spencer, Sarah Schenker

The indispensable companion to the #1 New York Times bestselling diet book

The FastDiet became an instant international bestseller with a powerful, life-changing message: that it’s possible to lose weight, reduce your risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer, all while eating what you normally eat five days a week. You simply cut your caloric intake two days a week—500 calories for women, 600 for men. But as author Dr. Michael Mosely said, “It’s not really fasting. It’s just a break from your normal routine.”

This fabulous new cookbook offers over 150 carefully crafted, nutritious, low-calorie recipes to enable you to incorporate the FastDiet into your daily life. Ranging from simple breakfasts to leisurely suppers, the recipes are all expertly balanced and calorie-counted by FastDiet co-author Mimi Spencer (a devotee of the diet herself!) and nutritionist Dr. Sarah Schenker. From soups to meat dishes to delicious fish-based meals, the recipes designed to fill you up and stave off hunger—even though none are over 500 calories. There are also detailed menu plans and plenty of encouraging tips, including kitchen-cupboard essentials, the latest nutritional advice and a whole section of speedy meals for busy days.

With an introduction to the diet itself—detailing its many scientifically-backed health benefits and the transformative results it’s already given to hundreds of thousands of readers—this book is an essential follow-up companion guide to The FastDiet. With The FastDiet Cookbook you will never have to worry about planning your Fast Days again!

Drawing on the latest research and his personal experience gaining and then losing 14 pounds, “the world’s top gut health guru” (Dr. Barry Marshall, winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine) returns with an even more effective—yet easier to follow—diet plan designed to reap maximum fasting benefits. The Fast800 Diet pinpoints the ideal fasting calorie count for health and weight loss: 800.

by Michael Mosley

In addition, Michael Mosley and Peta Bee break down the science behind this radically different approach to exercise and give you the tools to take advantage of the most flexible and efficient method out there. It’s a practical, enjoyable way to get maximal benefits in minimal time, short and fast, something that can become a sustainable part of your routine, as instinctive as brushing your teeth.

Culpables

Culpable Carelessness
by Findlay Stark

The question of when a person is culpable for taking an unjustified risk of harm has long been controversial in Anglo-American criminal law doctrine and theory. This survey of the approaches adopted in England and Wales, Canada, Australia, the United States, New Zealand and Scotland argues that they are converging, to differing extents, around a ‘Standard Account’ of culpable unjustified risk-taking. This Standard Account distinguishes between awareness-based culpability (recklessness) and inadvertence-based culpability (negligence) for unjustified risk-taking. With reference to criminal law theory and philosophical literature, the author argues that, when explained appropriately, the Standard Account is defensible and practical. Defending the Standard Account involves analysing in depth a number of controversial matters, including the meaning of advertence/awareness, the role of attitudes such as indifference in culpable risk-taking, and the question of whether negligence should be used in the criminal law.

The Fall of Crete 1941: Was Freyberg Culpable?
by Major James Bliss

On 20 May 1941, Generaloberst Kurt Student’s Luftwaffe XI Fliegerkorps conducted the first operational airborne invasion in history to seize Crete. Major-General Bernard Cyril Freyberg VC, 2nd New Zealand Expeditionary Force, commanded the British forces defending the island. Freyberg, forewarned of the details of the invasion, possessed numerical superiority over the enemy, but was defeated within twelve days. Freyberg, later blamed for the defeat due to his perceived faulty defensive dispositions, was dealt a losing hand from the start. His troops consisted of those that could be rescued from the failed Greek Campaign and lacked sufficient weapons, communications, and transport to conduct the defense. Despite the best efforts of the Royal Navy, overwhelming Luftwaffe air superiority in the absence of the Royal Air Force isolated Crete and the relentless drive of the attacking German forces captured it. Poor tactical leadership by Freyberg’s subordinate commanders and their failure to prosecute his operational plan led to defeat by the barest margin. While a tactical loss, Freyberg’s destruction of the 7th Flieger Division resulted in Hitler never considering an operational airborne assault again. Freyberg, although accepting responsibility for the defeat, should not be held entirely culpable for the loss of Crete.

Fault in Homicide
by Stanley Meng Heong Yeo

Yeo’s work examines the laws of England, Australia and India pertaining to the fault elements required for the crimes of murder and manslaughter. It contends that the Indian laws are superior and suggests a set of draft provisions which could comprise a viable model for reform of the English and Australian laws. The work is directly relevant to issues being considered in the development of the Model Criminal Code.

General Principles of Law as Applied by International Courts and Tribunals
by Bin Cheng

The municipal codes of well over a dozen countries expressly provide for the application of the general principles of law in the absence of specific legal provisions or of custom, and the Statute of the International Court of Justice stipulates that ‘the general principles of law recognised by civilised nations’ constitute one of the sources of international law to be applied by the Court; but the exact meaning and scope of this section of the Statute have always been a subject of controversy amongst international lawyers. In this printing of his classic 1953 work, Professor Bin Cheng inquires into the practical application of these principles by international courts and tribunals since the beginning of modern international arbitration with the Jay Treaty of 1794, and presents them as a coherent body of fundamental principles that in fact furnish the international legal system with its juridical basis. Citations from nearly 600 international arbitral and judicial decisions amply testify to the role of these principles in the international legal system and illustrate their application in practically every important field of international law.

Critical Thinking, fourth edition
by William Hughes, Jonathan Lavery

“William Hughes’s Critical Thinking, recently revised and updated by Jonathan Lavery, is a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the essential skills required to make strong arguments. Hughes and Lavery give a thorough treatment of such traditional topics as deductive and inductive reasoning, logical fallacies and how to spot them, the importance of inference, how to recognise and avoid ambiguity, and how to assess what is or is not relevant to an argument. But they also cover a variety of topics not always treated in books of this sort – special concerns to keep in mind when reasoning about ethical matters and how the nature of a language can affect the structure of an argument. The book gives a lucid treatment of the differences between descriptive and evaluative meaning: one person’s freedom fighter is another person’s terrorist.” “For the fourth edition, Jonathan Lavery has added a new chapter on scientific reasoning, expanded the treatment of analogies, added numerous examples, and revised and updated the text throughout.”–BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Punishment and Freedom
by Alan Brudner

Presents an original theory of the nature of criminal law, anchored in liberal political theory Advances the understanding of apparent contradictions and paradoxes within the criminal law Offers a major reassessment of the nature and role of the harm principle in criminal law, of interest to liberal political philosophers as well as criminal law theorists This book sets out a new understanding of the penal law of a liberal legal order. The prevalent view today is that the penal law is best understood from the standpoint of a moral theory concerning when it is fair to blame and censure an individual character for engaging in proscribed conduct. By contrast, this book argues that the penal law is best understood by a political and constitutional theory about when it is permissible for the state to restrain and confine a free agent. The book’s thesis is that penal action by public officials is permissible force rather than wrongful violence only if it could be accepted by the agent as being consistent with its freedom. There are, however, different conceptions of freedom, and each informs a theoretical paradigm of penal justice generating distinctive constraints on state coercion. Although this plurality of paradigms creates an appearance of fragmentation and contradiction in the law, the author argues that the penal law forms a complex whole uniting the constraints on punishment flowing from each paradigm. Readership: Criminal law academics, legal and political philosophers, and criminal law students.

Hegemonic Masculinity
by James W. Messerschmidt

The concept of hegemonic masculinity, formulated by Raewyn Connell more than three decades ago, has been the driving force behind the expanding field of masculinities studies. Hegemonic Masculinity: Formulation, Reformulation, and Amplification provides the first comprehensive overview of the concept—from its original conception to how it has evolved over time. The book also examines some of the most powerful ways the concept is being used in contemporary gender studies.

Hegemonic Masculinity describes the development of the concept, the actual formulation and initial applications of the concept, the eventual reformulation and subsequent applications of that reformulation, and finally, the amplification of the reformulated concept of hegemonic masculinity. The book also includes a chapter theorizing why and how hegemonic masculinities are constructed, and the concluding chapter chronicles the prospects for social change toward more egalitarian gender relations. Hegemonic Masculinity: Formulation, Reformulation, and Amplification brings together for the first time in one volume the history of the concept as well as a discussion and examination of some of the most important research accomplished on hegemonic masculinity over the last thirty years.

Computer Simulation Using Particles
by R.W Hockney, J.W Eastwood

Computer simulation of systems has become an important tool in scientific research and engineering design, including the simulation of systems through the motion of their constituent particles. Important examples of this are the motion of stars in galaxies, ions in hot gas plasmas, electrons in semiconductor devices, and atoms in solids and liquids. The behavior of the system is studied by programming into the computer a model of the system and then performing experiments with this model. New scientific insight is obtained by observing such computer experiments, often for controlled conditions that are not accessible in the laboratory.

Computer Simulation using Particles deals with the simulation of systems by following the motion of their constituent particles. This book provides an introduction to simulation using particles based on the NGP, CIC, and P3M algorithms and the programming principles that assist with the preparations of large simulation programs based on the OLYMPUS methodology. It also includes case study examples in the fields of astrophysics, plasmas, semiconductors, and ionic solids as well as more detailed mathematical treatment of the models, such as their errors, dispersion, and optimization.

This resource will help you understand how engineering design can be assisted by the ability to predict performance using the computer model before embarking on costly and time-consuming manufacture.

The Square and the Tower
by Niall Ferguson

The instant New York Times bestseller.

A brilliant recasting of the turning points in world history, including the one we’re living through, as a collision between old power hierarchies and new social networks.

“Captivating and compelling.” —The New York Times

“Niall Ferguson has again written a brilliant book…In 400 pages you will have restocked your mind. Do it.” —The Wall Street Journal

The Square and the Tower, in addition to being provocative history, may prove to be a bellwether work of the Internet Age.” —Christian Science Monitor

Most history is hierarchical: it’s about emperors, presidents, prime ministers and field marshals. It’s about states, armies and corporations. It’s about orders from on high. Even history “from below” is often about trade unions and workers’ parties. But what if that’s simply because hierarchical institutions create the archives that historians rely on? What if we are missing the informal, less well documented social networks that are the true sources of power and drivers of change?

The 21st century has been hailed as the Age of Networks. However, in The Square and the Tower, Niall Ferguson argues that networks have always been with us, from the structure of the brain to the food chain, from the family tree to freemasonry. Throughout history, hierarchies housed in high towers have claimed to rule, but often real power has resided in the networks in the town square below. For it is networks that tend to innovate. And it is through networks that revolutionary ideas can contagiously spread. Just because conspiracy theorists like to fantasize about such networks doesn’t mean they are not real.

From the cults of ancient Rome to the dynasties of the Renaissance, from the founding fathers to Facebook, The Square and the Tower tells the story of the rise, fall and rise of networks, and shows how network theory–concepts such as clustering, degrees of separation, weak ties, contagions and phase transitions–can transform our understanding of both the past and the present.

Just as The Ascent of Money put Wall Street into historical perspective, so The Square and the Tower does the same for Silicon Valley. And it offers a bold prediction about which hierarchies will withstand this latest wave of network disruption–and which will be toppled.


The Book of Hosea
by T. W. Crafer

Originally published in 1923 for use in schools, this book contains the Revised Version text of the Book of Hosea with critical annotations by T. W. Crafer, then Professor of Theology and Dean of Queen’s College, London. Crafer’s introduction supplies a history of the period and an overview of the use of Hosea in the New Testament. This volume will be of value to anyone with an interest in the Hebrew Bible or the history of education.

Just Around Midnight
by Jack Hamilton

By the time Jimi Hendrix died in 1970, the idea of a black man playing lead guitar in a rock band seemed exotic. Yet a mere ten years earlier, Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley had stood among the most influential rock and roll performers. Why did rock and roll become “white”? Just around Midnight reveals the interplay of popular music and racial thought that was responsible for this shift within the music industry and in the minds of fans.

Rooted in rhythm-and-blues pioneered by black musicians, 1950s rock and roll was racially inclusive and attracted listeners and performers across the color line. In the 1960s, however, rock and roll gave way to rock: a new musical ideal regarded as more serious, more artistic–and the province of white musicians. Decoding the racial discourses that have distorted standard histories of rock music, Jack Hamilton underscores how ideas of “authenticity” have blinded us to rock’s inextricably interracial artistic enterprise.

According to the standard storyline, the authentic white musician was guided by an individual creative vision, whereas black musicians were deemed authentic only when they stayed true to black tradition. Serious rock became white because only white musicians could be original without being accused of betraying their race. Juxtaposing Sam Cooke and Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones, and many others, Hamilton challenges the racial categories that oversimplified the sixties revolution and provides a deeper appreciation of the twists and turns that kept the music alive.

The Orwellian World of Jehovah’s Witnesses
by Heather Denise Harden Botting, Gary Botting

In 1984 George Orwell described a future theocracy that demanded unity at all costs, and in which all independent thought would be eradicated. According to the authors of this book, such a theocracy now exists.

They describe how, in an increasingly restrained ‘New World Society’, Jehovah’s Witnesses busily go about the business of warning the world that their God, Jehovah, will act soon to destroy all who oppose him and his organization. For them 1984 appears to be the current unofficial deadline for Armageddon, for they believe that God promised that the generation that saw the beginning of world distress (starting with World War I in 1914) would not pass away before the end came. A biblical generation is seventy years. 1914 + 70 = 1984. Convinced that the world Is due to end, they have given up their independence to the central theocracy.

The Bottings, both Witnesses, can and do answer the questions everyone asks about this sect. They examine its history, the ways in which history itself has been interpreted in the light of bible prophecy, the basic beliefs or ‘symbols’ in which Witnesses are required to put their faith, and the dynamics of conversion and indoctrination. They also reveal why Jehovah’s Witnesses turn away from their calling by the thousands and how the sect effects a ‘mental-regulating’ of youth as choice is taken away from children at a very young age. The sect is not only subject to forces of dissidence and disaffection from its membership, it has also been subject to a major rift within its headquarters. This event and what was done about it are also described.

The authors conclude this serious, concerned, probing but readable study with an exploration of parallels between the contemporary Jehovah’s Witness sect and the world described by George Orwell in 1984.


30 Years a Watchtower Slave
by William J. Schnell

At first, the Watchtower Society seemed harmless to William J. Schnell, even valuable as a way to develop his faith in God and pass it on to others. This book is Schnell’s fascinating account of his involvement with the cult, which effectively enticed him in the 1920s and continues to lure countless individuals today. Readers will learn, as Schnell did, that the Jehovah’s Witness religion he had joined was anything but innocent. For thirty years he was enslaved by one of the most totalitarian religions of our day, and his story of finally becoming free is riveting.
Readers will be alerted to the inner machinations, methods, and doctrines of the Watchtower Society, arming them to forewarn others and witness to their Jehovah’s Witness friends, relatives, neighbors, and the stranger at the door. With more than 300,000 copies sold, 30 Years a Watchtower Slave is truly one of the classic testimonies of freedom from a powerful cult.

Shunned
by Linda A. Curtis

A Riveting Memoir of Faith, Struggle and Rebirth That Will Have You on the Edge of Your Seat
“An inherently compelling and candidly revealing memoir . . . an extraordinary, riveting and unreservedly recommended read from first page to last.” —Midwest Book Review
Linda Curtis was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness and is an unquestioning true believer who has knocked on doors from the time she was nine years old. Like other Witnesses, she has been discouraged from pursuing a career, higher education, or even voting, and her friendships are limited to the Witness community.
Then one day, at age thirty-three, she knocks on a door—and a coworker she deeply respects answers the door. To their mutual consternation she launches into her usual spiel, but this time, for the first time ever, the message sounds hollow. In the months that follow, Curtis tries hard to overcome the doubts that spring from that doorstep encounter, knowing they could upend her “safe” existence. But ultimately, unable to reconcile her incredulity, she leaves her religion and divorces her Witness husband—a choice for which she is shunned by the entire community, including all members of her immediate family.
Shunned follows Linda as she steps into a world she was taught to fear and discovers what is possible when we stay true to our hearts, even when it means disappointing those we love.
“…a moving portrait of one woman’s life as a Jehovah’s Witness and her painful but liberating realization that she must give up her faith.” ―Publishers Weekly
“Curtis’s story reads as true to life.. it will resonate across faith lines.” —Foreword Reviews
“A profound, at times fascinating, personal transformation told with meticulous detail.” —Kirkus Reviews
“…a riveting story, a page-turner, a magnificent contribution, and a book you will never forget.” —Lynne Twist, global activist and author of The Soul of Money
“A wonderful book that is about so much more than the Jehovah’s Witnesses.” —Adair Lara, longtime columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle
“…brilliant, respectful, insightful and most of all hopeful.” ―Openly Bookish
Readers of Educated and Leaving the Witness will resonate with Linda Curtis’ moving and courageous account of personal transformation.
Order your copy today and begin reading this disturbing, heartbreaking, and ultimately inspiring memoir.

Coconuts and Kettlebells
by Noelle Tarr, Stefani Ruper

Created by the expert hosts of the popular Well-Fed Women Podcast, a step-by-step food and fitness plan for women, that teaches them how to improve their health by changing the quality—not the quantity—of the food they eat.

To eat your way to better health, you don’t need to limit your calorie intake, or cut out carbs or fat. You don’t need to count “points.” Better health doesn’t come from limits. It comes from focusing on the quality of food that you eat—not the quantity. Instead of limiting your food intake you should be enriching it, argue Noelle Tarr and Stefani Ruper. The popular hosts of the Well-Fed Women Podcast want you to focus on the good things you eat. They want to make sure you get enough food so that your body has the fuel and nourishment it needs to support a healthy, long, and energetic life.

Noelle and Stefani know about eating for health firsthand. They, too, struggled with confusing and frustrating medical conditions, including infertility, digestive issues, acne, polycystic ovarian syndrome, hypothyroidism, and anemia. They discovered that the secret to improving wellness was actually more food: they ditched the diet books, calorie counters, and scales, and started eating their way to health.

In Coconuts and Kettlebells, you’ll eat at least 2,000 calories a day thanks to a delicious selection of dishes that are all gluten-free, grain-free, and paleo. Within those 2,000 calories, setting a minimum intakes of protein, fat, and carbohydrates instead of the usual maximums will ensure that your diet is full of nutrients, while also providing flexibility to enjoy what you’re eating. Noelle and Stefani identify the Big Four foods—grains, dairy, vegetable oils, and refined sugar—that cause the most health problems among women. While many diets require you to eliminate these foods entirely, Coconuts and Kettlebells provides an easy-to-follow step-by-step program to test these foods and determine which you need to cut back on—and which you don’t—to feel better.

To help you discover how your body responds to the Big Four, you’ll choose from two simple 4-week meal plans: one for the Butter Lover (people who tend to feel more satisfied eating higher ratios of fats) and one for the Bread Lover (people who tend to feel more satisfied eating higher ratios of carbs). Each meal plan comes with a weekly shopping list, a guide to kitchen tools and equipment, and instructions on how to batch cook, meal prep, and stock the pantry. In addition, you’ll have access to over 75 gluten-free and paleo-friendly flavor-packed recipes (free of the Big Four foods) for every meal of the day, including:

  • Coconut Chai Latte
  • Kale and Bacon Breakfast Skillet
  • Apple Pie Smoothie
  • Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp
  • Moroccan Lamb Meatballs
  • Shrimp and Cabbage Stir Fry
  • Parsnip and Carrot Fries
  • Mango Jalapeno Salsa
  • Chocolate Cherry Energy Bites
  • Lemon Raspberry Mini Cheesecakes

To go along with the meal plans, Noelle and Stefani also provide three 4-week fitness plans tailored to three experience levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. All of the workouts can be done anywhere—at your home or on the road—and take no more than thirty minutes. A comprehensive whole body program to get and keep you healthy inside and out, Coconuts and Kettlebells provides the knowledge and tools you need to heal in a way that is effortless, rewarding, confidence-boosting, and everlasting.

Coconuts and Kettlebells is illustrated with color photos throughout.


Bantam, Ford and Willys-1/4-Ton Reconnaissance Cars
by Robert Notman

The 1/4-ton, 4×4, truck of World War Two started out in the hands of the Infantry and a little company called American Bantam Car Company. Bantam worked with the Army’s Quartermaster Corps to produce the pilot model that was accepted and then fulfilled their initial contract for 70 trucks. During testing of the pilot both Ford and Willys-Overland were invited to check out this new vehicle. The vehicles were studied in great detail. Soon, at their own expense, Ford and Willys-Overland submitted pilots for testing too. This book covers the production prototypes–Bantam BRC-40, Ford GP and the Willys MA.

4-Minute Fit
by Siphiwe Baleka, Jon Wertheim

From Yale-educated truck driver and fitness guru Siphiwe Baleka, a revolutionary metabolism-spiking program for anyone who feels they don’t have enough time, equipment, or money to get in shape and lose those extra pounds.

When Siphiwe Baleka, who had once been a NCAA Division I athlete, began truck driving in 2008, his whole lifestyle changed. Within weeks his metabolism slowed drastically and he gained ten percent of his body weight. He knew he needed to take back control of his health and wellbeing and change the sedentary lifestyle of truck driving—one of the country’s least healthy industries.

Now, Baleka, founder of Fitness Trucking and full-time fitness coach for Prime Inc., one of the nation’s largest trucking companies—and now one of the healthiest—helps thousands of Prime’s long-haul truck drivers, who have also struggled with weight and health problems, with his 13-week nutrition and exercise plan.

Combining step-by-step workouts and advice on healthy eating (even on the go), 4-Minute Fit is a flexible, yet powerful plan that is proven to boost your metabolism, provide results, and help you get rid of those extra pounds and reach your weight loss goals. Baleka’s program is geared not only for those who drive eighteen-wheelers, but also for anyone who travels for work, has a job that involves a lot of sitting, or doesn’t think they have enough time to exercise and eat better. If you’re frustrated by the weight gain that comes from not being active enough due to your job or lifestyle, 4-Minute Fit is the simple new guide that can radically change your life.

Fat Loss Happens on Monday
by Josh Hillis, Dan John

Nearly all diet and workout books are focused on the wrong things: They focus on WHAT instead of HOW. Yet the leanest people focus on how, on their eating habits, not on fad diets. Diets that rely on willpower and discipline fail. The path to results is made up of eleven small, simple, step-by-step habits. Rotating through phases of metabolic workouts, endurance workouts, and strength workouts yields the best fat-loss results. Josh Hillis and Dan John know these habit-based diet and workout hacks, and they teach them well.

Tenacious, a final sprint that cements your improved eating habits and melts off those last stubborn pounds

The SHRED system never leaves you hungry. It’s a completely new way to lose weight, stay slender, and feel fantastic about your body, mind and spirit!

Includes more than 50 all-new recipes for meal replacing smoothies and soups!

The Keto Reset Diet
by Mark Sisson, Brad Kearns

Mark Sisson—author of the mega-bestseller The Primal Blueprint—unveils his groundbreaking ketogenic diet plan that resets your metabolism in 21 days so you can burn fat forever.

Mounting scientific research is confirming that eating a ketogenic diet could represent one of the greatest nutritional breakthroughs of our time—and that it might be the healthiest and most effective weight loss strategy ever. Going “keto” by eating high fat, low-to-moderate protein and low-carb foods enables you to break free from the disastrous effects of carbohydrate dependency by resetting your metabolism and promoting metabolic flexibility—where your body learns to burns fat instead of sugar for energy, even when you go off plan.
 
Unlike many other ketogenic programs that require challenging restrictions and deprivation or offer misinformation, Mark Sisson, bestselling author of The Primal Blueprint and publisher of the #1 paleo blog MarksDailyApple.com, presents a unique two-step, scientifically validated approach for going keto the right way.  He first reveals the real secret to rapid and sustained weight loss, which is in becoming “fat-adapted” before entering full nutritional ketosis. This process allows your body to learn to burn fat more efficiently, resulting in increased and sustained weight loss over the long-term.  It takes as little as 21-days to reprogram your metabolism to burn fat for fuel, by ditching processed grains, sugars, and refined vegetable oils in favor of nutrient-dense, high fat, primal/paleo foods–and you’ll see immediate results. Next, you’ll fine-tune with Intermittent Fasting and then foray into full ketogenic eating for a further weight loss boost and improved health.  

With The Keto Reset Diet, you can eat to total satisfaction by enjoying rich, high-satiety foods, and even weather occasional slip-ups. You’ll use keto as a lifelong tool to stay trim, healthy, energetic, and free from the disastrous health conditions caused by the typical American diet. With step-by-step guidance, daily meal plans and a recipe section with over 100 delicious keto-friendly recipes, this is the definitive guide to help the keto-beginner or the experienced health enthusiast understand the what, why, and how to succeed with ketogenic eating.


Fat for Fuel
by Dr. Joseph Mercola

For over a century, we’ve accepted the scientific consensus that cancer results from genetic disease due to chromosomal damage in cell nuclei. But what if cancer isn’t a genetic disease after all? What if scientists are chasing a flawed paradigm, and cancer isn’t a disease of damaged DNA but rather of defective metabolism as a result of mitochondrial dysfunction? What if that startling truth could revolutionize our understanding of other diseases as well —and show us a radical new path to optimal health?

In this groundbreaking guide, the first of its kind, New York Times best-selling author and leading natural-health practitioner Joseph Mercola explains how nearly all disease is caused by defective metabolic processes. Then he reveals what’s really causing your metabolism to go haywire: damage and dysfunction in the mitochondria, thousands of which are at work in nearly every cell in your body, generating 90 percent of the energy you need to stay alive and well. When mitochondria become damaged in large numbers, it is impossible to stay healthy.

Dr. Mercola shows you that you can to take control of your health simply by giving your body the proper fuel —and it’s not what you’ve likely been led to believe. A ketogenic diet, very low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats, is the way to optimize the biochemical pathways that suppress disease and support healing. And the benefits can be astonishing —not only in treating or preventing serious illness, but in boosting your brainpower, increasing your energy, helping you lose weight and keep it off, and much more.

As you read this book, you’ll learn in clear, rational terms how your body works at a molecular level. You’ll finally understand the type of fuel it’s designed to burn in the most efficient way possible. You’ll find detailed guidelines for starting and sticking with a ketogenic eating plan. And you won’t have to wait a decade or two for metabolic mitochondrial therapy to make its way into the mainstream. You can build a healthier body and brain at the cutting edge of this exciting new discipline, starting right now.

Waisted
by Randy Susan Meyers

In this provocative, wildly entertaining, and compelling novel, seven women enrolled in an extreme weight loss documentary discover self-love and sisterhood as they enact a daring revenge against the exploitative filmmakers.

Alice and Daphne, both successful and accomplished working mothers, harbor the same secret: obsession with their weight overshadows concerns about their children, husbands, work—and everything else of importance in their lives. Scales terrify them.

Daphne, plump in a family of model-thin women, learned only slimness earns admiration at her mother’s knee. Alice, break-up skinny when she met her husband, risks losing her marriage if she keeps gaining weight.

The two women meet at Waisted. Located in a remote Vermont mansion, the program promises fast, dramatic weight loss, and Alice, Daphne, and five other women are desperate enough to leave behind their families for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The catch? They must agree to always be on camera; afterward, the world will see Waisted: The Documentary.

The women soon discover that the filmmakers have trapped them in a cruel experiment. With each pound lost, they edge deeper into obsession and instability…until they decide to take matters into their own hands.


Battle Royale
by Koushun Takami, Masayuki Taguchi

Having recovered from her fever, Noriko is now ready to travel, but her trip is cut short by the powerful Hiroki. Confronted by Shogo, the two come to blows until Shuuya intervenes. Inviting Hiroki to join them, the young martial artist briefly considers it, but ultimately goes his own way, revealing that he’s searching for Kyoichi Motobuchi. Making plans to rejoin the alliance as soon as he finds Kyoichi, Hiroki departs just as the alliance finds itself under attack. When it’s discovered that the attacker is Kazuo, Shuuya agrees to distract him while Shogo and Noriko flee. It’s a sacrifice that will cost him dearly. Shuuya survives, but just barely. Having caught several rounds from Kazuo’s machine gun, it’s only through the interference of Hiroki that Shuuya escapes with his life. Meanwhile, Shinji and Yutaka are on the verge of completing their plan to take out the school, when the bumbling Yutaka loses an integral piece of equipment. With his temper slowly rising, how will the frustrated Shinji react?

Battle Royale: Remastered
by Koushun Takami

Koushun Takami’s notorious high-octane thriller envisions a nightmare scenario: a class of junior high school students is taken to a deserted island where, as part of a ruthless authoritarian program, they are provided arms and forced to kill until only one survivor is left standing. Criticized as violent exploitation when first published in Japan—where it became a runaway best seller—Battle Royale is a Lord of the Flies for the 21st century, a potent allegory of what it means to be young and (barely) alive in a dog-eat-dog world.

Creative Destruction
by Phil Mullan

Western economies have become stuck in a protracted depression that began long before the 2008 crash. Low productivity, which started in the 1970s, has prevented durable rises in living standards. Phil Mullan shows that the only way to ensure a better future is to create one, calling for a comprehensive economic restructure backed by political and cultural change. This means embracing the uncomfortable disruption involved in progressive change, rekindling in democratic form a spirit of Enlightenment thinking. The votes for Brexit and in the US presidential elections in 2016 indicate that many people desire change, offering greater opportunity for this public discussion. What is needed is a new industrial revolution which develops a broad range of emerging and yet unimagined services and products, provides decent jobs and restores prosperity. Providing examples of the new technologies needed to drive change, backed up by a wealth of data, this important book calls for a sea-change in imagination and thinking.

Kafka on the Shore
by Haruki Murakami

With “Kafka on the Shore, Haruki Murakami gives us a novel every bit as ambitious and expansive as “The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, which has been acclaimed both here and around the world for its uncommon ambition and achievement, and whose still-growing popularity suggests that it will be read and admired for decades to come.
This magnificent new novel has a similarly extraordinary scope and the same capacity to amaze, entertain, and bewitch the reader. A tour de force of metaphysical reality, it is powered by two remarkable characters: a teenage boy, Kafka Tamura, who runs away from home either to escape a gruesome oedipal prophecy or to search for his long-missing mother and sister; and an aging simpleton called Nakata, who never recovered from a wartime affliction and now is drawn toward Kafka for reasons that, like the most basic activities of daily life, he cannot fathom. Their odyssey, as mysterious to them as it is to us, is enriched throughout by vivid accomplices and mesmerizing events. Cats and people carry on conversations, a ghostlike pimp employs a Hegel-quoting prostitute, a forest harbors soldiers apparently unaged since World War II, and rainstorms of fish (and worse) fall from the sky. There is a brutal murder, with the identity of both victim and perpetrator a riddle-yet this, along with everything else, is eventually answered, just as the entwined destinies of Kafka and Nakata are gradually revealed, with one escaping his fate entirely and the other given a fresh start on his own.
Extravagant in its accomplishment, “Kafka on the Shore displays one of the world’s truly great storytellers at the height of his powers.

“From the Hardcover edition.

Homelands
by Alfredo Corchado

From prizewinning journalist and immigration expert Alfredo Corchado comes the sweeping story of the great Mexican migration from the late 1980s to today.

Homelands is the story of Mexican immigration to the United States over the last three decades. Written by Alfredo Corchado, one of the most prominent Mexican American journalists, it’s told from the perspective of four friends who first meet in a Mexican restaurant in Philadelphia in 1987. One was a radical activist, another a restaurant/tequila entrepreneur, the third a lawyer/politician, and the fourth, Alfredo, a hungry young reporter for the Wall Street Journal. Over the course of thirty years, the four friends continued to meet, coming together to share stories of the turning points in their lives-the death of parents, the births of children, professional milestones, stories from their families north and south of the border.

Using the lens of this intimate narrative of friendship, the book chronicles one of modern America’s most profound transformations-during which Mexican Americans swelled to become our largest single minority, changing the color, economy, and culture of America itself. In 1970, the Mexican population was just 700,000 people, but despite the recent decline in Mexican immigration to the United States, the Mexican American population has now passed three million-a result of high birth rates here in the United States. In the wake of the nativist sentiment unleased in the recent election, Homelands will be a must-read for policy makers, activists, Mexican Americas, and all those wishing to truly understand the background of our ongoing immigration debate.
