Every woman has a pair of trophy “skinny” jeans she has banished to the back of her closet: a reminder of days past, when she felt young, sexy, and fit. Well, with Amy Cotta’s help, readers will tone up, slim down, and stay motivated until they can shimmy back into those sexy skinny jeans for good! Diet, exercise, and attitude are all readers need to succeed during this 6-week program. Cotta’s eating plan trims fast-burning carbohydrates for the first 3 weeks, igniting weight loss, then reintroduces and manages those carbs for the second half of the plan. Her graduated fitness program offers three styles of cardio and strength-training exercises that get progressively more challenging to keep readers from getting bored or hitting a plateau while sculpting those curves. Both plans are simple to follow at home—no gym, fancy equipment, or expensive food deliveries required—and there are calendars, food logs, and meal plans to help readers stay upbeat and organized. Packed with dynamic, down-to-earth strategies, Six Weeks to Skinny Jeans inspires women to take control of their lifestyle and feel younger, sexier, and fitter than ever before.

An Arab and a Jew open a restaurant together across the street from the United Nations.... It sounds like the beginning of an ethnic joke, but it's the axis around which spins this gutsy, fun-loving, and alarmingly provocative novel, in which a bean can philosophizes, a dessert spoon mystifies, a young waitress takes on the New York art world, and a rowdy redneck welder discovers the lost god of Palestine--while the illusions that obscure humanity's view of the true universe fall away, one by one, like Salome's veils. Skinny Legs and All deals with today's most sensitive issues: race, politics, marriage, art, religion, money, and lust. It weaves lyrically through what some call the "end days" of our planet. Refusing to avert its gaze from the horrors of the apocalypse, it also refuses to let the alleged end of the world spoil its mood. And its mood is defiantly upbeat. In the gloriously inventive Tom Robbins style, here are characters, phrases, stories, and ideas that dance together on the page, wild and sexy, like Salome herself. Or was it Jezebel?

Like "Tuesdays with Morrie," in which Mitch Albom gleans wisdom from his mentor, "Finding the Good" is the story of Fred Montgomery and his influence on Lucas Johnson, a young reporter who learns of the transforming power of faith and love. Here is a powerful story of a 20th century slave who rose to the rank of mayor and the young man whose life he touched. Fred Montgomery, the son of sharecroppers in west Tennessee, and boyhood friend of Alex Haley, grew up in poverty, but had a faith and confidence instilled in him by his parents. Always at the mercy of white people, Fred worked hard and acquired his own farm in spite of opposition from his white neighbors. After losing two of his sons in separate drowning accidents, Fred tried twice to commit suicide. Bitter from years of frustration brought upon him by whites, Fred's attitude was changed by the sympathy and love shown to him by his neighbors, white and black alike. In 1988 he proved that faith and love can prevail by becoming the first black mayor of the once strongly segregated Henning, Tennessee. While telling this story, the author shows glimpses of his own life, in which many of his relatives, including his own father, succumbed to the lure of alcohol and drugs. Lucas Johnson lost all hope. He had no faith; he had no love. "Years have passed," he concludes," since I first met Fred Montgomery. . . . I'm a better person because of him. His life . . . gave me a credible blueprint on how to deal with life's problems and even grow stronger from them."

The Peacock Revolution in menswear of the 1960s came as a profound shock to much of America. Men's long hair and vividly colored, sexualized clothes challenged long established traditions of masculine identity. Peacock Revolution is an in-depth study of how radical changes in men's clothing reflected, and contributed to, the changing ideas of American manhood initiated by a 'youthquake' of rebellious baby boomers coming of age in an era of social revolutions. Featuring a detailed examination of the diverse socio-cultural and socio-political movements of the era, the book examines how those dissents and advocacies influenced the youthquake generation's choices in dress and ideas of masculinity. Daniel Delis Hill provides a thorough chronicle of the peacock fashions of the time, beginning with the mod looks of the British Invasion in the early 1960s, through the counterculture street styles and the mass-market trends they inspired, and concluding with the dress-for-success menswear revivals of the 1970s Me-Decade.

He's the worst athlete ever! It's fitting that his team of sled dogs is made up of a bunch of misfits like him. Why did he have to be born this way?Life is hard and sometimes disappointing for twelve-year-old Spencer, but when he and his team of misfit sled dogs get lost in a blizzard during their first 100-mile race through some of the wildest backcountry on earth, he discovers that it's grit more than talent that makes a champion. Having courage far surpasses being popular any day. Maybe Spencer's disability isn't destined to hold him back after all!
