The Chia Book Wayne Coates, PhD For people trying to lose weight and enhance well-being, it's a little miracle: chia, a tiny seed that the Aztecs used for centuries as a super food, provides a complete source of dietary protein with more omega-3 fatty acids than salmon and more fiber--but fewer carbs--than rice, grains, and corn.

This definitive work covers the history and benefits of chia, and features a comprehensive daily strategy for weight loss, plus delicious recipes!
Dr. Wayne Coates is Professor Emeritus in the Office of Arid Lands Studies at the University of Arizona, and is perhaps the world's foremost educator on chia seeds. He was among the first to grow chia experimentally and later for commercial purposes. Dr. Coates is the co-author, with Ricardo Ayerza, of Chia: Rediscovering a Forgotten Crop of the Aztecs. He lives in Prescott, Arizona.
-Author is founder of the educational chia website www.azchia.com and head of Arizona Chia's retail operation - Chia is both gluten- and sugar-free, and good for both celiacs and diabetics - Ideal for runners and other athletes because it boosts endurance and muscle recovery, and is recommended as well for dieters and those suffering from arthritis

Feeding Eden The Trials and Triumphs of a Food Allergy Family Susan Weissman Imagine rushing your child to the hospital, terrified for his life…just because he took a mouthful of the wrong food or a few drops of milk touched his skin. Susan Weissman knows how that feels. From birth, her son Eden suffered from allergies so intense that an errant bite could be deadly: Dairy, eggs, soy, nuts, fish, shellfish, and several fruits all wreaked havoc with his body. Susan had to make food the focus of her existence just to lead him safely through a world filled with edible landmines. In Feeding Eden, Susan writes with poignancy, honesty, and humor about her quest to help her son--including trying a cluster of alternative therapies-as well as the effect of Eden's illness on their entire family. More than just a story for parents with severely allergic children, this is a stirring account of one woman's recipe for motherhood as she rises to a challenge she has no choice but to conquer-and successfully restores her entire family's appetite for life Susan Weissman is an active member of national organizations focused on food allergies, including the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network and the Food Allergy Initiative.

Pot, Inc. Inside Medical Marijuana, America’s Most Outlaw Industry Greg Campbell, author of Blood Diamonds and Flawless Greg Campbell, coauthor of the bestselling Flawless and Blood Diamonds, presents a compelling, close-up investigation of a hot-button topic: America's schizophrenic attitude to the legalization of pot. Campbell, a suburban father whose biggest vice is a cold beer, seems like the last person who would grow weed in his basement. But his attitude changed in 2009, when his home state of Colorado led the nation in mainstreaming medical marijuana. Watching with fascination as above-board and financially thriving dispensaries popped up everywhere, Campbell wondered, “Why not me?” Pot, Inc. chronicles Greg's journey into DIY ganjapreneurialism, as he learns how to cultivate marijuana, examines America's often unduly harsh laws, and unearths ignorance about pot's centuries-old therapeutic value--ignorance the government is desperate to maintain. Along the way, he also gains a very personal insight into the drug's medicinal value that shapes his opinion about legalization. GREG CAMPBELL is the author of Flawless: Inside the Largest Diamond Heist in History (a Denver Post, Globe & Mail, and Library Journal bestseller), Blood Diamonds: Tracing the Deadly Path of the World's Most Precious Stones (the source material for the Leonardo DiCaprio movie of the same name), and The Road to Kosovo: A Balkan Diary. An award-winning journalist, his writing has appeared in The Wall Street Journal Magazine, The Economist, The San Francisco Times, Paris Match, and The Christian Science Monitor, among others. He lives in Fort Collins, CO.

The family that eats together stays together…
When she was a young girl, Lisa Caponigri regularly traveled on extended research trips to Italy with her father, an internationally known professor of Italian philosophy. Then, on school vacations Caponigri’s Sicilian grandmother invited her to spend time at her home, and under her grandmother’s watchful eye Lisa mastered Italian home cooking. Later in life, Lisa moved to Italy to raise her family and continued to study Italian cuisine. Lisa now resides in South Bend, Indiana and dedicates herself to spreading the gospel of Italian cooking in America.
That’s what Lisa Caponigri believes, and she created Whatever Happened to Sunday Dinner? to give real families recipes they can easily cook and enjoy together. Caponigri has devised 52 delicious Italian menus—one for each Sunday of the year—that feature all the favorites, including classics like crostini, lasagne, polenta, stuffed peppers, veal piccata, risotto al Milanese, and ricotta pie. There are also many surprises like Woodman’s pasta and Italian french fries—and traditional, treasured dishes from her own family’s kitchen, such as Nana’s Strufoli and Grandma Caponigri’s Ragu Sauce.
Beautifully photographed by Guy Ambrosino, Whatever Happened to Sunday Dinner? showcases food styling by former Gourmet magazine editor Kate Winslow.

his deliciously sexy novel will feed the hunger of ravenous, vampire-loving fans.
What’s real? What’s not? As inexplicable events and romantic opportunities pile up, along with the corpses, Kismet finds herself in a whirlwind of passion, mystery, and danger. But this tough and funny heroine—who doesn’t do damsel in distress—is about to turn the vampire-meets-girl convention on its head.
Kismet Knight, a brainy Denver-based psychologist with a stalled career and a nonexistent love life, is about to have her world rocked. Not only does her newest patient, Midnight, long to become a vampire, but the teenager insists that a coven of the undead hangs out at a local goth club. The always-rational Kismet dismisses Midnight’s claims as the delusions of an attention-starved girl—until bodies start turning up drained of blood and the hottest self-described vampire ever to walk the face of the earth enters her office.

Her lifelong fascination with the occult and paranormal led her to write paranormal romance novels, and her professional training shaped her Kismet Knight series, which begins with The Vampire Shrink.

The Beasts of Tarzan The Adventures of Lord Greystoke, Book Three Edgar Rice Burroughs First, in Tarzan of the Apes, the orphaned young Lord Greystoke was adopted by a great ape and taught the ways of the jungle and how to survive in the wild. In The Return of Tarzan he had to learn the equally deadly laws of “civilized” European society. Now, in this third thrilling installment in Edgar Rice Burroughs’s perennially popular series, Tarzan is exiled on a wild island filled with dangers. There, he must enlist the help of a noble panther and a tribe of apes in order to return to the mainland and rescue his wife and infant son from the clutches of his nemesis, the villainous Nikolas Rokoff.
The Hollow Earth At the Earth's Core and Pellucidar Edgar Rice Burroughs Readers can now enjoy two action-packed, adventure-filled fantasies from Tarzan creator Edgar Rice Burroughs--At the Earth's Core and Pellucidar--in this one volume! While working in the Sahara, David Innes--heir to a mining fortune--makes a shocking discovery: an unknown world exists below ground, at the Earth's core. Once trapped in this primeval land known as Pellucidar, Innes must battle an array of terrifying prehistoric creatures and primitive tribes if he is ever to return to the Earth's surface.
