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.

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.

“An impressionistic memoir of a Polish Jewish girl’s survival hiding as a Gentile in Nazi-occupied Poland . . . truly moving and bravely rendered.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review Alona Frankel was just two years old when Germany invaded Poland. After a Polish carpenter agreed to hide her parents but not her, Alona’s parents desperately handed her over to a greedy woman who agreed to hide her only as long as they continued to send money. Isolated from her parents and living among pigs, horses, mice, and lice, Alona taught herself to read and drew on scraps of paper. The woman would send these drawings to Alona’s parents as proof that Alona was still alive. In time, the money ran out and Alona was tossed into her parents’ hiding place, at this point barely recognizing them. After Poland’s liberation, Alona’s mother was admitted to a terminal hospital and Alona handed over to a wealthy, arrogant family of Jewish survivors who eventually cast her off to an orphanage. Despite these daily horrors and dangers surrounding her, Alona’s imagination could not be restrained. Faithful to the perspective of the heroine herself, Frankel, now a world-renowned children’s author and illustrator, reveals a little girl full of life in a terrible, evil world. “A wonderful contribution to the canon of Holocaust literature—the story of a hidden child that is told with indelible images and tender words.” —Thane Rosenbaum, author of How Sweet It Is!

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.

In choosing between moral alternatives -- choosing between various forms of ethical action -- we typically make calculations of the following kind: A is better than B; B is better than C; therefore A is better than C. These inferences use the principle of transitivity and are fundamental to many forms of practical and theoretical theorizing, not just in moral and ethical theory but in economics. Indeed they are so common as to be almost invisible. What Larry Temkin's book shows is that, shockingly, if we want to continue making plausible judgments, we cannot continue to make these assumptions. Temkin shows that we are committed to various moral ideals that are, surprisingly, fundamentally incompatible with the idea that "better than" can be transitive. His book develops many examples where value judgments that we accept and find attractive, are incompatible with transitivity. While this might seem to leave two options -- reject transitivity, or reject some of our normative commitments in order to keep it -- Temkin is neutral on which path to follow, only making the case that a choice is necessary, and that the cost either way will be high. Temkin's book is a very original and deeply unsettling work of skeptical philosophy that mounts an important new challenge to contemporary ethics.
