An Unexpected Life:

Living A Course in Miracles: The Essential

Speaking Through Art

Guide to the Classic Text

Debra Chwast, paintings by Seth Chwast

Jon Mundy

Diagnosed with autism, Seth Chwast was locked into his own world for years. Then, at age 20, he took a painting class, and revealed an innate ability to create amazing artworks that reflect his own unique perspective. Written by Seth’s mother, Debra, An Unexpected Life tells the story of her determination to help him find his voice. More than a memoir, this richly illustrated book is infused with hope and inspiration.

The essential guide to an influential, challenging, and best-selling spiritual work—one that can otherwise take a lifetime to understand. In 1976, a mysterious “Inner Voice” called out to Helen Schucman, dictating a system of belief that ultimately became A Course in Miracles. This book, totaling 1,333 pages, went on to sell more than two million copies around the world, in 19 languages. Jon Mundy, who knew the Course’s founders and the text from the beginning, illuminates its complex teachings on such subjects as forgiveness, desire, health, money, addiction, and the afterlife.

Dog Days: A Year in the

Asphalt Renaissance:

Oscar Mayer Weinermobile Dave Ihlenfeld

The Pavement Art and Illusion of Kurt Wenner

A hilarious “behind the buns” look at life in the iconic Oscar Mayer Wienermobile! It was the ultimate post-college road trip: a year-long journey in a 27-foot-long fiberglass hotdog across the US and Europe. Rife with breakdowns, meaty puns, the burdens of instant celebrity, and more Wiener Whistles than anyone could ever hope for, Ihlenfeld’s uproarious tale of his time behind the wheel is a coming-of-age story—as irreverent as it is touching.

Asphalt Renaissance is a brilliant account of the rebirth and re-imagining of the art of street painting by top artist Kurt Wenner. He revolutionized this tradition by creating a technique for drawing on pavement in 3-D. This system enables him to craft astounding images that reach out of the ground toward the viewer and appear perilously deep. Wenner has traveled the world over and his incredible art is both a global and an Internet phenomenon.

My Boyfriend Wrote a Book About Me: And Other Stories I Shouldn’t Share with Acquaintances, Coworkers, Taxi Drivers, Assistants, Job Interviewers, Bikini Waxers and Ex/ Current/ Future Boyfriends But Have

At Home: What It Means and Why It Matters Mary Gordon Where do you live? The answer to this seemingly simple question can be more complicated than you’d think. Drawing on personal experience, Mary Gordon examines various forms of abode—from her childhood house in Far Rockaway to apartments in Palo Alto, Rome, and the Upper West Side—as well as the very concept of “home” and how it has evolved over time.

Hilary Winston TV writer Hilary Winston offers up a witty collection of autobiographical tales about her misadventures in dating. Just when she feels she’s getting her life together, Hilary discovers that her ex has written a novel about their relationship in which he calls her the “fat-assed girlfriend.” Her response to this affront is just one of the stories in this deliciously funny, laugh-out-loud, tell-all.

Focus: Found Faces: Your World, Your Images

Robert Ausbourne Optical illusions, a magical melding of science and art, appeal to all ages. This lavish full-color book looks at both the science (the peculiarities of human vision that make illusions possible) and the art (famous deceptive images and their creators).

In the clouds, the bark of a tree, a winking parking meter, mischievous machinery: faces seem to be everywhere, emerging from everyday items, nature, and chance compositions. Focus: Found Faces celebrates the humor—and humanity—of encountering familiar features in unexpected places. Shot by everyday photographers, these delightfully surprising images convey a sense of joy, discovery, and magic.

Zombie High Yearbook '64

Focus: Letters: Your World, Your Images

Jeff Busch

Whether they’re glowing from a neon sign or scrawled as graffiti on the wall, letters are both meaningful and beautiful. They also seem to pop up where you least expect them—on a bicycle wheel that looks like an “O” or wooden boards that form an “E.” With approximately 250 images taken by amateur photographers, Focus: Letters shines a spotlight on the infinity of ways letters decorate our world.

Printed in blood-spattered black and white, this lovingly, gorily constructed tribute to high school yearbooks of old is hilarious in its attention to period detail even as it celebrates the 1960s zombie youth “afterlifestyle.” With tendon-snapping precision, author and artist Jeff Busch has captured a dynamic moment in an all-American zombie high school’s history.

The Impact of Climate Change on Biodiversity

From Olbers’ Paradox to Schrödinger’s Cat, 250 Milestones in the HIstory of Physics

Richard Pearson and the American Museum of Natural History

Clifford A. Pickover

Could more than a million species disappear in the 21st century? Written by a leading scientist at the American Museum of Natural History, Driven to Extinction provides balanced, well-reasoned insight into the potential impacts of climate change on the diversity of life. Dr. Richard Pearson focuses on what has happened—and what is likely to happen—to some of the world’s most beautiful and unusual species as global temperatures continue to rise.

Following the hugely successful The Science Book and The Math Book comes a richly illustrated chronology of physics, containing 250 short entries. In addition to exploring such engaging topics as dark energy, parallel universes, the Doppler effect, the God particle, and Maxwell’s demon, the book's timeline extends back billions of years to the hypothetical Big Bang and forward trillions of years to a time of “quantum resurrection.”

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. And when the tough are on-the-go, they turn to this handy-sized collection of tough hangman puzzles!
