What the bestselling Word Freak did for Scrabble, this riveting narrative now does for the National Spelling Bee. Here is a captivating slice of Americana--part sporting event, part absorbing human drama, and part celebration of the magic of words. Every spring in the nation's capital, after a starting pool of 10 million kids narrows to 250 finalists, America's top young spellers face off in a nail-biting contest. So electric is the drama that millions of viewers tune in to watch ESPN's live telecast prBut this national obsession is much more than a sporting story--and this first-ever narrative nonfiction book about the National Spelling Bee immerses the reader in unique subculture, portraying the endearing fraternity of brilliant, eccentric young word nerds who vie for a gold trophy, a hefty check, and a glorious moment of national fame. Author James Maguire, who like the contestants is an inveterate word nut, captures the agony and glory of this singularly American event. He profiles the top five spellers across the country, exploring their hopes and dreams--and strategies for winning--as they prepare for their moment in the spotlight. American Bee takes readers behind the scenes at the National Bee, providing a narrative thrill ride as the tension mounts round by round.

There's an idea floating around out there, an unspoken opinion that says the Scripps National Spelling Bee is interesting only to boring word nerds and dull academic braniacs. Here is a book which explodes that myth.Written from the perspective of a 2009 speller, "Verbomania" presents what it is like to experience Bee Week in Washington, DC. It details the tension and nerves, friendship and camaraderie, laughter and tears, the joy that comes with winning and the heartbreak that accompanies losing at the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Maybe spelling is not technically a sport--despite being broadcast on ESPN each year--but after reading "Verbomania," you'll agree that it is a real competition in every sense of the word.

In politics, if you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman. Margaret Thatcher Instead of getting married again, I’m going to find a woman I don’t like and just give her a house. Rod Stewart Ever been at a loss for words? Ever wished that the perfect wry remark or putdown would spring to mind? The great, the good, the intellectual and the downright insulting can all be found in Brit Wit. With wonderful one-liners from such formidable figures as Churchill and Shakespeare to more recent luminaries of British stage, screen and society including Michael Caine, Victoria Wood and Eddie Izzard, Brit Wit celebrates all that makes Britain brilliant.
