In this collection of humorous essays, the author considers hitting the streets with a sign that says: Will Work for Botox. She also contemplates, along with many other burning issues of our time, the "joys" of staying in cramped home offices instead of a hotel when visiting friends. This is a delightful potpourri of rants, nostalgia, and just plain fun.

Welcome to the hilarious tapestry of musings of veteran newsman and columnist Ted Slate. In My Life and Other Aggravations, Slate mines the exceedingly rich terrain of his life, careers and experiences to share a uniquely eloquent world view. Whether examining his second-life career as a tour director, or sharing the trials and tribulations of aging, Slate's stories are a privileged invitation to unlatch a treasure chest of humorous and often intriguing experiences. Slate explores wide-ranging topics like the absurdity of exotic pet ownership, the challenges of texting, drinking calf blood cocktails with Masai tribesmen in Africa, hair-loss woes, to-do-lists, his love-hate relationship with Florida and his failed attempt to bribe a Yankee ticket agent with a colonoscopy, just to name a few. Slate's stories infest the mind as if they were your own. Part memoir, part cultural study, My Life and Other Aggravations is a compelling read that masterfully weaves together both the poignant and funny.

In his new book, Saints As They Really Are, priest and scholar Michael Plekon traces the spiritual journeys of several American Christians, using their memoirs and other writings. These “saints-in-the-making” show all their doubts and imperfections as they reflect on their search for God and their efforts to lead holy lives. They are gifted yet ordinary women and men trying to follow Christ within their flawed and broken humanity—“saints as they really are,” as Dorothy Day put it. Saints As They Really Are is the third book in Plekon’s critically acclaimed series on saints and holiness in our time. He draws on the autobiographical work of Dorothy Day, Peter Berger, Thomas Merton, Kathleen Norris, and Barbara Brown Taylor, among others, as well as from his own experiences as a Carmelite seminarian and brother. Plekon shares the power of these individuals’ stories as they unfold. The book offers a strong argument that our failings and weaknesses are not disqualifications to holiness. Plekon further confronts the institutional church and its relationship to individuals seeking God, focusing on some of the challenges to this search—the destructive potential of religion and religious institutions, as well as our personal tendencies to extremism, overwork, pious obsessions, and legalism. But he also underscores the healing qualities of faith and the spiritual life. Plekon's insights will help readers better understand their own spiritual pilgrimages as they learn how others have dealt with the trials and joys of their path to everyday holiness.

This book shows how we can stretch our capacity to love - stretch it beyond anything we can imagine. To love more, we need the desire to love more. We need to slow down - not to do less, but to relax the frantic pace of thinking that leaves so little room for what is worthwhile. We need ways to reorder our priorities. We need time - time for others. And we need some way of renewing ourselves, day in and day out. Eknath Easwaran describes specific methods of meditation and prayer which we can use to tap our inner strength at any time, even when we are frustrated, angry, or sapped by doubt. Introductions to each section give glimpses into the lives and teachings of these saints.

Can two guys enjoy a trip to Italy with their wives and still like each other at the end? That's not a rhetorical question; we'd really like to know because we couldn't pull it off. When one of your traveling companions is Dean Dino DAdamo, and the rest are human beings, you get one part vacation and one part failed sociology experiment. The Italian Journals; Where to Go, What to Eat and Who to Leave at Home is a unique and hilarious take on the classic vacation to Rome, Florence, and Venice. Youll actually read two separate accounts of the same trip, and at times ask yourself if it actually was the same trip. We ask ourselves the same question, and we were there. Sure, youll get some excellent tips on things to do and see in Italy, but lets face it, you can get that anywhere. What weve added is all of the eye-rolling, head shaking, muffled-grunting frustration and aggravation that make a vacation truly memorable.
