Queer Eye for the Straight Guy (USED)

$12.99
More Info
Imagine this: Five eminently stylish and hilariously witty gay men -- authoritative experts in food and wine, grooming, decorating, fashion, and culture -- invade your life, assess your strengths and weaknesses, and, in the course of a day, make you better dressed, better groomed, better mannered, and a better cook, living in a better home. All of this is painless (unless you have a really egregious body-hair situation), liberating, and downright fun.
This is what "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" does each week on one of the hottest TV shows in memory, as the Fab 5 -- Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, Carson Kressley, and Jai Rodriguez -- turn an everyman frog into an every-girl's-dream prince. And this is what the book offers: the essential "make better" advice from each of the Fab 5. Just like the show, the book focuses on easy but lasting lifestyle transformation -- the tasks, the projects, the modest purchases, and, most important, the new attitudes that immediately make a noticeable difference.
From Kyan's instructions on how often to wash your hair to Carson's explanation of why shirts are the new ties, from Ted's strategies for ordering wine and Thom's suggestions on a better bathroom to Jai's hints on shaking hands, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy is filled with clear, direct advice on the issues that confront every man. But Queer Eye doesn't try to make you dress like Carson or dance like Jai; it's about teaching you how to refine your own personal style, without throwing away your entire closet and buying a whole new everything. It's about helping you realize the best expression of yourself -- the real you.
Queer Eye introduces men to the rewards that women -- and a lot of gay men -- have long reaped by thinking about the day-to-day details that make them look better, feel better, and get more out of life. Many straight men have long felt that these subjects are not for them. Nothing could be sillier. In this book, the Fab 5 sets them straight (so to speak).

Quotable Jefferson (USED)

$6.99
More Info

More than any other Founding Father, Thomas Jefferson made his reputation on the brilliance of his writing. John Adams chose the 33-year-old Jefferson to draft the Declaration of Independence largely because of his "masterly Pen." The genius of the Declaration and Jefferson's later writings amply confirmed Adams's judgment. Few writers have said so much on so many subjects--and said it so well--as Jefferson. The Quotable Jefferson--the most comprehensive and authoritative book of Jefferson quotations ever published--demonstrates that as does no other book.


Drawing primarily on The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, published by Princeton University Press, John Kaminski has carefully collected and cleverly arranged Jefferson's pronouncements on almost 500 subjects, ranging from the profound and public--the Constitution--to the personal and peculiar--cold water bathing.

The Quotable Jefferson is the first book to put Jefferson's words in context with a substantial introduction, a chronology of Jefferson's life, the source of each quotation, an appendix identifying Jefferson's correspondents, and a comprehensive index. The main section of Jefferson quotations, which are arranged alphabetically by topic, is followed by three other fascinating sections of quotations: Jefferson on his contemporaries, his contemporaries on him, and Jefferson on himself.


This book will delight the casual reader and browser, but it is also a serious and carefully edited reference work. Whatever the subject, if Jefferson said something memorable about it, you are likely to find it here.

    Shadow Realms Demonology Handbook

    $20.00
    More Info
    In this book titled Shadow Realms Demonology Handbook, you will find articles by demonologists Carl L. Johnson and Lana J. Brock. Carl is known for his appearances on Syfy Channel's Ghost Hunters seasons 1 & 2; and Animal Planet's The Haunted in 5 episodes. He also appeared in an episode of A Haunting with his family. Lana appeared on Syfy Channel's Paranormal Witness in an episode called Deliver Us from Evil and a couple of appearances on the Ghosts R N.E.A.R. show PBS Rhode Island. Both have appeared in numerous paranormal radio shows and have shared their experiences as witnesses of the paranormal, the demonic, for which path led them to study and research that field as demonologists. This is their first endeavor branching out beyond, already set standards of what is traditionally known as "demonology"; to "think outside the box" and ponder new theories on negative spirits, demons and the shadow realms for which they dwell. There are differing views between the two authors to demonstrate various perspectives and to display a method of hypothesizing and speculation outside what is known as demonology. Our world is filled with wonderful views of mythology, religious and scientific studies from all cultures. We invite you as we share our thoughts on this topic to consider the possibilities outside of that realm, as we know it.

    Three main challenges faced me as I prepared this fifth edition of "The Bedford Handbook."

Second, because technology has changed composing behaviors so dramatically over the past four years, I looked forward to bringing the book into the electronic age. And, finally, because many instructors assign writing based on one or two sources (rather than on personal experience or many sources), I wanted to emphasize text-based writing early in the book, not just in later sections.
