"HD is in high demand these days. It's only natural to want everything in sharp focus. But what about health in HD? The HD Diet shows readers how to choose the right foods to ensure a high-definition life. This 12-week plan provides guidelines on incorporating hydrophilic ("water-loving") foods like oats, beans, artichokes, spinach, and apples, along with nutrient-dense hydro-boosters like chia seeds, into a well-balanced diet. When digested, these foods diminish cravings, maintain digestive health, and encourage weight loss. Keren Gilbert also encourages readers to phase out "IF" foods--infrequent foods such as white bread, processed foods, and refined sugar. Readers will find delicious recipes like cinnamon-chia oatmeal, scallop stir-fry shirataki, and Pumpkin Yogurt Parfait. The HD Diet focuses on a mind-body approach to weight loss that is both pleasurable and sustainable. With motivational stories from clients (some have lost up to 30 pounds in 12 weeks), detailed shopping lists, daily menu templates, and a strong emphasis on making healthy decisions for life, The HD Diet ensures that every reader will live life in high definition.

"The super simple secret to building muscle and burning fat? Act as if you already have the body you want! Research shows that although People can lose 5 to 10 percent of their body weight on any given diet, dieting itself is a consistent predictor of future weight gain. Why? At some point, everyone stops dieting. The Lean Muscle Diet solves the sustainability problem while offering immediate results. It's simple: act as if you already have the body you want. If a reader is, say, a 220-pound man who wants to become a muscular 180-pounder, he then uses The Lean Muscle Diet's formula to eat and train to sustain a 180-pound body. The transformation begins immediately, and the results last for life. Lou Schuler, who has sold more then one million copies of his fitness books worldwide, and Alan Aragon, nutrition advisor to Men's health, have created an eating and "metabolically expensive" exercise plan designed to melt fat while building muscle. The best part? The plan allows readers to eat their favorite foods, no matter how decadent. With full support from Men's Health, The Lean Muscle Diet delivers a simple--and simply sustainable--body transformation plan anyone can use"-- Provided by publisher.

The monuments : the grit and glory of cycling's greatest one-day races

December 19, 2014
Cossins, Peter, author.
London Bloomsbury, 2014.
410 pages, 16 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations (some color), maps, portraits ; 23 cm.
The Tour de France may provide the most obvious fame and glory, but it is cycling's one-day tests that the professional riders really prize. Toughest, longest and dirtiest of all are the so-called 'Monuments', the five legendary races that are the sport's equivalent of golf's majors or the grand slams in tennis. Milan-Sanremo, the Tour of Flanders, Paris--Roubaix, Liege-Bastogne-Liege and the Tour of Lombardy date back more than a century, and each of them is an anomaly in modern-day sport, the cycling equivalent of the Monaco Grand Prix. Time has changed them to a degree, but they remain as brutally testing as they ever have been. They provide the sport's outstanding one-day performers - the likes of Philippe Gilbert, Fabian Cancellara, Mark Cavendish, Tom Boonen, Peter Sagan and Thor Hushovd - with a chance to measure themselves against each other and their predecessors in the most challenging tests in world cycling. From the bone-shattering bowler-hat cobbles of the Paris-Roubaix to the insanely steep hellingen in the Tour of Flanders, each race is as unique as the riders who push themselves through extreme exhaustion to win them and enter their epic history. Over the course of a century, only Rik Van Looy and Eddy Merckx have won all five races. Yet victory in a single edition of a Monument guarantees a rider lasting fame. For some, that one victory has even more cachet than success in a grand tour. Each of the Monuments has a fascinating history, featuring tales of the finest and largest characters in the sport. In The Monuments Peter Cossins tells the tumultuous history of these extraordinary races and the riders they have immortalised.

The new "I do" : reshaping marriage for skeptics, realists, and rebels

December 19, 2014
Gadoua, Susan Pease, author.
Berkeley, California : Seal Press, [2014]
232 pages ; 21 cm
Introduction -- Have we outgrown marriage? -- Why put a ring on it? -- Starter marriage: trying on marriage to see if it fits -- Companionship marriage: you've got a friend -- Parenting marriage: truly planned parenthood -- Living alone together: distance makes the heart grow fonder -- Covenant marriage: extreme marriage makeovers -- Safety marriage: money can buy you love and happiness -- Open marriage: why monogamy? -- To pre or not to pre when your mate pops the question -- Open mind, open dialog.
"If half of all cars bought in America each year broke down, there would be a national uproar. But when people suggest that maybe every single marriage doesn't look like the next and isn't meant to last until death, there's nothing but a rash of proposed laws trying to force it to do just that. In The New I Do, therapist Susan Pease Gadoua and journalist Vicki Larson take a groundbreaking look at the modern shape of marriage to help readers open their minds to marrying more consciously and creatively. Offering actual models of less-traditional marriages, including everything from a parenting marriage (intended for the sake of raising and nurturing children) to a comfort or safety marriage (where people marry for financial security or companionship), the book covers unique options for couples interested in forging their own paths. With advice and quizzes to help readers decide what works for them, The New I Do acts as a guide to thinking outside the marital box and the framework for a new debate on marriage in the 21st century"-- Provided by publisher.

Overview: Straight from the front line of urban America, the inspiring story of one fiercely determined teacher and her remarkable students. As an idealistic twenty-three-year-old English teacher at Wilson High School in Long beach, California, Erin Gruwell confronted a room of "unteachable, at-risk" students. One day she intercepted a note with an ugly racial caricature, and angrily declared that this was precisely the sort of thing that led to the Holocaust - only to be met by uncomprehending looks. So she and her students, using the treasured books Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl and Zlata's Diary: A Child's Life in Sarajevo as their guides, undertook a life-changing, eye-opening, spirit-raising odyssey against intolerance and misunderstanding. They learned to see the parallels in these books to their own lives, recording their thoughts and feelings in diaries and dubbing themselves the "Freedom Writers" in homage to the civil rights activists "The Freedom Riders." With funds raised by a "Read-a-thon for Tolerance," they arranged for Miep Gies, the courageous Dutch woman who sheltered the Frank family, to visit them in California, where she declared that Erin Gruwell's students were "the real heroes." Their efforts have paid off spectacularly, both in terms of recognition - appearances on "Prime Time Live" and "All Things Considered," coverage in People magazine, a meeting with US Secretary of Education Richard Riley - and educationally. All 150 Freedom Writers have graduated from high school and are now attending college. With powerful entries from the students' own diaries and a narrative text by Erin Gruwell, The Freedom Writers Diary is an uplifting, unforgettable example of how hard work, courage, and the spirit of determination changed the lives of a teacher and her students. The authors' proceeds from this book will be donated to The Tolerance Education Foundation, an organization set up to pay for the Freedom Writers' college tuition. Erin Gruwell is now a visiting professor at California State University, Long Beach, where some of her students are Freedom Writers.

"Together Charles Schwartz and Bill Westheimer explored the city of New York on the upper east side of Manhattan using a Camera Obscura. These pictures reveal the city through the unique viewpoint of the camera obscura and record the images digitally. The Camera Obscura's location is fixed, yet it provides an ever changing view of the city's activities, architecture and landscape. The images use the pre-photographic camera obscura technology combined with post-photographic digital capture to create a timeless view of New York. The digital camera instantly captures the ephemeral projections in a clear crisp reality that transports the viewer into other worlds." --

"When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published their Children's and Household Tales in 1812, followed by a second volume in 1815, they had no idea that such stories as "Rapunzel," "Hansel and Gretel," and "Cinderella" would become the most celebrated in the world. Yet few people today are familiar with the majority of tales from the two early volumes, since in the next four decades the Grimms would publish six other editions, each extensively revised in content and style. For the very first time, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm makes available in English all 156 stories from the 1812 and 1815 editions. These narrative gems, newly translated and brought together in one beautiful book, are accompanied by sumptuous new illustrations from award-winning artist Andrea Dezsö. From "The Frog King" to "The Golden Key," wondrous worlds unfold--heroes and heroines are rewarded, weaker animals triumph over the strong, and simple bumpkins prove themselves not so simple after all. Esteemed fairy tale scholar Jack Zipes offers accessible translations that retain the spare description and engaging storytelling style of the originals. Indeed, this is what makes the tales from the 1812 and 1815 editions unique--they reflect diverse voices, rooted in oral traditions, that are absent from the Grimms' later, more embellished collections of tales. Zipes's introduction gives important historical context, and the book includes the Grimms' prefaces and notes. A delight to read, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm presents these peerless stories to a whole new generation of readers"-- Provided by publisher.
