Here’s to glorious alcohol! • This

The Quotable Drunkard

Words of Wit, Wisdom, and Philosophy from the Bottom of the Glass Steven Kates

“I only take a drink on two occasions: when I’m thirsty and when I’m not.” —Brendan Behan From pubs, alehouses, wine bars, vineyards, across the table, and under the table flows a river of thoughts about drinking. Some of it is profound, some of it is funny, some of it is silly. But all of it is about that most wonderful of human inventions: alcohol. From the ancient (“The man who isn’t jolly after drinking is just a driveling idiot to my thinking.” —Euripides) to the modern (“Alcohol—the cause of and the solution to all of life’s problems.” —Homer Simpson), here is wit, wisdom, and drunken ramblings about every alcoholic substance humans have used to enrich their lives, expand their creativity, and destroy their livers. Mixed with classic drink recipes, short biographies of potable quotables, and information about favorite watering spots, The Quotable Drunkard is a treasure every drinker will be bound to keep—right next to the Beefeater.

Steven Kates is predisposed to drink as a former journalist, an Irish-American, and an MFA graduate. Should you meet Kates in his native Rhode Island, he’ll have a Sidecar, a Sam Adams Cherry Wheat®, or an entire bottle of Champagne.

How to man up during pregnancy • It’s

My Boys Can Swim for the Knocked Up generation

• Rather

than overly clinical (Mom already has What to Expect When You’re Expecting) or over-the-top (like What to Expect When Your Wife Is Expanding), it gives guys the lowdown on how they can, yes, actually help during her pregnancy

Media’s father-to-be guides have sold more than 200,000 copies!

Dude, You’re Gonna Be a Dad! How to Get (Both of You) Through the Next 9 Months John Pfeiffer

There are approximately 3,712 ways for a man to look stupid during pregnancy—Dude, You’re Gonna Be a Dad! is here to help readers avoid (most of) them. It loops guys in on what’s going on with her while focusing on what they should be doing for her. Like any good coach, John Pfeiffer has been through it. He knows what a guy needs to do between the stick turning blue and the drive to the delivery room. And it’s more than throwing a coat of yellow paint on the spare bedroom’s walls (though that still needs to be done). On one hand, he needs to be responsive—there with a “You’re beautiful” and massage when she’s ballooned out, Sumo-style. On the other, he needs to ditch the “whatever you want, honey” mentality, grow a pair, and be assertive during the decision-making process. Or else he’ll wind up with a son named Percy. Pfeiffer knows how to speak to his fellow man: straightforward and directly, with a few fart jokes tossed in. With this book as their guide, guys learn that she might be having the baby, but they have plenty of responsibilities.

John Pfeiffer (Atlanta, GA) is a married father of three. With a stepdaughter, a naturally conceived daughter, and a baby by way of a threesome (with an IVF specialist), Pfeiffer is especially qualified to take expectant dads all the way through pregnancy’s home stretch.

Six times had the darkness closed over a gnarly scene, and returning light as often brought a renewed jonesing, for the raging storm increased in fury until after seven days all hope was lost of finding that magical island to grow our free-range weed unnoticed by narcs.” The Robinson family never had so much fun being shipwrecked—until now.

From constructing a home while hitting the hash pipe to trying to keep a stash dry during a shipwreck, The Stoned Family Robinson will have stoners jonesing for more!

J.D. Wyss (1743-1818) was an army chaplain with four sons. He wrote The Swiss Family Robinson to entertain his children while teaching them important life lessons. The first English edition was translated by William Godwin in 1814 and has been a classic ever since.

It’s so hard being a man. There’s all those hectic scheduling issues. (Remember the fantasy draft/beer-league playoff double-booking debacle?) Then there’s his romantic side that never ceases to amaze. (Takeout and a UFC pay-per-view, anyone?) And don’t get us started on how he finds time to stay so fashion-forward. (Who would’ve known the socks-and-sandals look was making a comeback?) No wonder he only has time to throw his dirty underwear next to the hamper. But it’s not always easy for these modern-day Supermen. They can have bad days too. That’s when the women in their lives really need to shower them with attention, tell them how great they are, and remind them that yes, Of Course You’re Still Cool, Honey.

Corny Raspberry Muffins It can be crazy around our house in the morning—people are rushing in every direction, getting dressed, packing backpacks for school, and eating breakfast. Having healthy muffins on hand is really nice when time is short and you all need to grab something that is fast and easy to eat. These are better for you—and the planet—than the drive-through any day! Ingredients: • • • • •

1½ cups all-purpose flour ½ cup yellow cornmeal ½ cup packed brown sugar 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda

• • • • •

¼ teaspoon salt 1¼ cups plain low-fat yogurt 3 tablespoons vegetable oil 1 teaspoon lemon rind, grated 2 large eggs, lightly beaten

• Non-stick cooking spray • 1 cup fresh raspberries • ½ teaspoon granulated sugar

Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. 2. Place a large bowl inside an even larger one. This will allow you to catch any spills of your dry ingredients so they aren’t wasted. 3. Measure flour, cornmeal, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add each to the bowl. 4. In a separate bowl, add yogurt and vegetable oil. 5. Use a lemon zester, microplane, or box grater to grate the lemon rind. Watch out—these are sharp! 6. Crack the eggs and add them to a separate small bowl. This will allow you to easily fish out any stray shells. 7. Lightly mix the eggs with a whisk or fork. Add the eggs to the yogurt mixture and stir to combine. 8. Pour the wet mixture to the large bowl of dry ingredients. 9. Stir until just blended. The dough won’t be nice and tender if you mix too much. 10. Use a ¼ cup measuring cup to spoon the batter into 12 muffin cups (coated with cooking spray). 11. Mix the raspberries and sugar in a small bowl. 12. Using a spoon, scoop even quantities of berries on to each muffin cup.

Color Key 2-3 years old 4-6 years old 7-10 years old 11+ years old

13. Bake for 20 minutes or until the muffins spring back when you touch them gently in the center. 14. Remove them from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes in the pan. 15. Transfer muffins from the pan and allow to cool on a wire rack. © Matthew Carden

The Little Book of Big F*#k Ups 220 of History’s Most-Regrettable Moments

Ken Lytle and Katie Corcoran Lytle, MA; Foreword by Bob Carney, founder and owner of Stump! Trivia

Nobody’s perfect. Every day, some guy forgets his wife’s birthday, some schmuck drives his Corolla into the Lexus in front of him, and some mother forgets to make cupcakes for her kid’s school bake sale. But readers will never sweat the small stuff again. The Little Book of Big F*#k Ups gives these denizens of disaster a major self-esteem boost by detailing 220 of the world’s most easily avoided catastrophes, such as:

• The Donner party camping trip. Oh, pioneers! The Sierra Nevadas are not a winter wonderland. Guess you learned the hard way. • The sinking of the RMS Titanic. Hello!? Does anyone see that huge iceberg? No? Okay then. • Madame Curie’s death from radium poisoning. Come on, Marie, put on a Hazmat suit, will ya? Your creepy glow-in-the-dark skin is freaking everyone out.

After all, everyone makes mistakes. It’s just that some people’s faux pas are worse— way, way worse—than others.

Ken Lytle (Whitman, MA) is by day a mild-mannered accountant and by night a passionate trivia jockey who hosts bar trivia. He combined his love for words and numbers with his vast array of odd facts and figures to assemble this collection of catastrophes.

• It’s

a throwback manual with a modern edge as it rights today’s wrong behavior

• Perfect

gift for anyone in need of a minor manner adjustment—from the recent college grad to that annoying friend who needs a hint

Uncommon Courtesy

The Basics of Good Behavior for a Badly Behaved World Jennifer M. Wood

Uncommon Courtesy is the quick slap to the back of the head most people need nowadays. In a world that’s more likely to flip the bird than hold the door, it’s a reminder of proper behavior. Readers receive a (re-)schooling in manners with lessons split up by situation, then tackled by topic. Each note corrects conduct that’s become all too common, like . . . Bad Behavior: Popping a piece of gum into your mouth midconversation, and stressing your point by snapping it. Courteous Fix: If you’re going to have a piece of gum while talking to someone, be sure to offer your companion a piece—and keep your mouth closed as you chew. You want your breath to be fresh. Not your attitude. Uncommon Courtesy is a reminder that it wasn’t always out of place to be polite.

States of Confusion My 19,000-Mile Detour to Find Direction Paul Jury

Rather than deal with the problems he was facing as a recent college grad, Paul Jury decided to leave them in his rearview mirror. He might not have known the direction his life was headed, but he knew the route he was taking to hit all forty-eight contiguous states on one epic road trip. Filled with plenty of adventure and the unforeseen obstacle (or twelve), States of Confusion puts the reader in shotgun to see where the road takes Paul.

from the prologue Fresh out of school with a useless degree and eighty grand of debt, I had no idea what to do next. My parents wanted me to move home to Minnesota. My college girlfriend wanted me to propose. My heart didn’t want me to do either. Oh, and just for good measure, the economy was tanking. I needed a plan. Simple. I would leave it all behind—the temp jobs, the girlfriend, the debt. Well, not the debt. That’ll be following me around for the next two decades. The solution to my situation was to get behind the wheel and drive. I’d take my parents’ VW Eurovan on one epic road trip through all forty-eight contiguous states. That’d get me on track. It’s quite possible that this trip would be the ballsiest thing I’d ever do in my life. It’s also quite possible that I had been drinking when I decided on this “plan.”

A Clue-by-Clue Guide to Finding Out If He’s Unfaithful Rea Frey and Stephany Alexander, founder of WomanSavers.com; Foreword by Susan Bartlestone, Personal Safety Specialist

Cheating leaves women broken and men offering lame excuses. But there’s no reason women can’t stop cheaters in their tracks. The Cheat Sheet helps readers uncover the entanglement of infidelity with tools as simple as quizzes and as versatile as cell phones. The expert authors’ intimate knowledge of cheaters and their tricks is paired with a private investigator’s savvy sleuthing, priming readers to outwit even the slyest sleezeball. Each chapter progresses through common pretexts and roots of affairs to expose the cheater’s thought process and m.o. Readers learn: • How to catch a cheat in the act • Which rules cheaters live by • How to deflect a cheater’s advances • When there’s a way to forgive • When there’s no choice but to forget Empowered readers will recognize cheating when it happens, catch cheaters redhanded, and ultimately find a relationship that will make them happy for a lifetime.

Rea Frey (Chicago, IL) has created a buzz with her dating column, Pretty and the City, and her blog, Cheaters Tales (CheatersTales.wordpress.com), which focuses on cheating and relationships.

The Little Black Book of Big Red Flags The 200 Warning Signs You Should Never Ignore—But Usually Do

Natasha Burton, Julie Fishman, and Meagan McCrary, founders of thelittleblackblogofbigredflags.com

She’s never met his friends: Red flag. Mom pays his rent: Red flag. He’s fake-and-baked orange: Red frickin’ flag! You’d think with such obvious warning signs, more women would know when to cut and run. They don’t. Instead they think, It’s not that bad, I can live with it, or—even worse—I can fix him! What a disaster. This Little Black Book will become every woman’s new best friend as it saves her from wasting time on a sinking ship. It combines real advice with real anecdotes to get a real message across: He’s just not that good for you. Readers will laugh at their fellow females’ dating disasters (and cringe when they realize a few of their own). And by the end, they’ll understand that when the flaw’s that obvious, it’s best to walk—or, in most cases, run—away.

Falling. Being chased. Showing up to an important event late—and naked. Many have had these common dreams, but the meanings for each are unique. After all, someone who is afraid of heights would feel differently about falling then someone who works as a skydiving instructor. And someone who is perpetually late may feel differently about showing up late to an event than someone who never runs behind schedule.

Hudson uses the tools of her trade to offer customized dream analysis to readers who want to know what their dreams mean for them. Part comprehensive guide and part interactive workbook, Into Your Dreams helps dreamers decode the secrets of their subconscious—and teaches them how to use these secrets to improve their lives. Because no one knows the power of a dream better than the dreamer.

The Bullsh*t Artist

Learn to Bluff, Dupe, Charm, and BS with the Best of ’Em Paul Kleinman

Readers shouldn’t bother with the pick-up books or get-rich-quick schemes. Same with the confidence builders and brain boosters. They’re all crap. They need to be the ones doing the bullshitting rather than eating it up. The rewards will be tenfold—the success, the women, the attention—once they become the actual source rather than another bystander in the breadline of life. To achieve that goal, they’ll be taught techniques on how to run a conversation and interject into a discussion—even if they’re clueless about the current topic. All they need is a kernel of truth and some confidence. After their crash course in talking the talk, readers are provided with those kernels of information that can be used to back up any argument, validate any assumption, and legitimize any rebuttal. Forget being an annoying know-it-all. Readers will tap into real appeal once they become a skilled bullshit artist. Guaranteed.

Physics for Men The Science Behind Being a Guy P. R. Kelt

Who would’ve known there was so much thought behind a guy’s every move? Sure, he’s impressed bystanders with the lengths he’ll go in order to reach the remote without getting out of the recliner. But his mission’s success is just dumb luck . . . right? Better go to the replay.

Marketing: • National print, broadcast, and online publicity targeted to men’s interest and humor media • Promotion on “The Daily Bender” blog • Targeted social media outreach

Whereas a simpleton might think his foot kicking down on the magazine and sending the clicker sailing through the air and into his outstretched hand is a fluke—it’s actually a very calculated move. The angles of impact and trajectory were carefully thought out. Drag and resistance were factored in. And velocity was figured in order to time the catch perfectly. Not as easy as first thought. Physics for Men shows readers that there’s a science behind being that awesome.

A PhD candidate, he thinks about the intricacies of quantum coherence as he scales fifty foot cliffs, rides backcountry, and teaches salsa.

The Incontrovertible Code of (Formerly) Unwritten Rules

From Airline Armrest-Etiquette to Flushing Twice, 101 Universal Laws of Common Civility That We Wish Everyone Knew Alfred McDoGooder

Never hog both armrests when you fly. Don’t sit too close to fellow beach-goers. When you borrow someone’s car, fill it up with gas before you give it back. These are the unwritten rules of life. Observe them, and one rises above the great unwashed. Observe them not, and one goes straight to trailer trash. In this hilariously civil guide, readers learn all the principles of politesse our mothers tried to teach us—but some of us just weren’t listening. Those who weren’t will learn how to conduct themselves—at home, at work, and out and about in public spaces.

The Soul Mate Myth

A 3-Step Program to Finding Authentic Love—Without Settling Jean Cirillo, PhD

This practical book reveals conventional wisdom’s falsehoods about what works in a relationship and gets women to rethink love with fresh eyes. Readers learn how to:

• Separate the man from the myth • Get rid of unreasonable expectations without giving up on what’s really important • Enjoy aspects of love and dating they’ve previously taken for granted • Love and be loved for the right reasons • Commit to a real-life man and build a lasting relationship

Armed with case studies of strong marriages and resilient love, The Soul Mate Myth exposes the lie of the perfect match and gives readers the tools they need to identify and pursue exciting—and attainable—new possibilities for love.
