One Beautiful Dream: The Rollicking Tale of Family Chaos, Personal Passions, and Saying Yes to Them Both
Pursue your passions, love your family, and say goodbye to guilt-pipe dream or possibility? Work and family, individuality and motherhood, the creative life and family life-women are told constantly that they can't have it all. One Beautiful Dream is the deeply personal, often humorous tale of what happened when one woman dared to believe that you can have it all-if you're willing to reimagine what having it all looks like. Jennifer Fulwiler is the last person you might expect to be the mother of six young children. First of all, she's an introvert only child, self-described workaholic, and former atheist who never intended to have a family. Oh, and Jennifer has a blood-clotting disorder exacerbated by pregnancy that has threatened her life on more than one occasion. One Beautiful Dream is the story of what happens when one woman embarks on the wild experiment of chasing her dreams with multiple kids in diapers. It's the tale of learning that opening your life to others means that everything will get noisy and chaotic, but that it is in this mess that you'll find real joy. Jennifer's quest takes her in search of wisdom from a cast of colorful characters, including her Ivy-League-educated husband, her Texan mother-in-law who crushes wasps with her fist while arguing with wrong number calls about politics, and a best friend who's never afraid to tell it like it is. Through it all, Jennifer moves toward the realization that the life you need is not the life you would have originally chosen for yourself. And maybe, just maybe, it's better that way. Hilarious, highly relatable, and brutally honest, Jennifer's story will spark clarity and comfort to your own tug-of-war between all that is good and beautiful about family life and the incredible sacrifice it entails. Parenthood, personal ambitions, family planning, and faith-it's complicated. Let this book be your invitation to the unexpected, yet beautiful dream of saying yes to them all, with God's help.

Those Other Women
'I devoured it, loved and totally escaped into it. Fun and topical' MARIAN KEYES It was supposed to be harmless fun. Poppy created a Facebook group to vent just a little about smug mummies at work. After all, her best friend betrayed her in order to have a child - with Poppy's husband. She just never expected the group to take off the way it did. Or that the 'other women' are in turn heartily sick of being judged by non-mums and stay-at-home mums alike. And soon the rivalry spills into the real world . . . Those Other Women is a darkly funny, controversial look at motherhood and childlessness. What readers are saying: 'This book is for any woman: whether you wish to be a mother, or simply don't' 'I loved this book' 'You may go in on one side, then find yourself switching sides, then back again' 'Entertaining and fun, but with a serious side'

Coming of Age, Liver Spots & All: A Humorous Look at the Wonders of Getting Old
Life sometimes sucks. So does getting older. Strange and unexpected changes happen to our minds and our bodies. Forgetting where we laid those damn car keys (if we are even allowed to drive). And looking in the mirror sure isn't a pleasant past time any longer, what with the baggy eyes, sagging jowls, not to mention the other body parts that hangaor disappear between folds of excess foldsaand don't even mention turning around to take a gander at our backsides, once sleek and slim. If we can even see them. But don't count us out yet. COMING OF AGE, LIVER SPOTS & ALL is both a playful and grudging acknowledgement that like S**T, getting old happens. Aging happens in different ways for all of us, even though we all carry a lifetime of baggage, whether it be in a steamer trunk, suitcase, or a new-fangled roll-in-any-direction carry-on. Some of us carry all our important stuff (like those damn keys) in a backpack. Now, if only I could find that backpack. Don Marsh walks readers through his take on the aging process in with tongue-in-cheek revelry. Truthful, sometimes sobering, but always humorous, this quick read allows the old(er) of us to laugh at our sagging bodies, wandering minds, and thinning hair.

Lincoln's Sense of Humor
Abraham Lincoln was the first president to make storytelling, jokes, and laughter tools of the office, and his natural sense of humor has become legendary. Lincoln's Sense of Humor registers the variety, complexity of purpose, and ethical dimension of Lincoln's humor and pinpoints the political risks Lincoln ran in telling jokes while the nation was engaged in a bloody struggle for existence.

Complete with amusing anecdotes, this book shows how Lincoln's uses of humor evolved as he matured and explores its versatility, range of expressions, and multiple sources: western tall tales, morality stories, bawdy jokes, linguistic tricks, absurdities, political satire, and sharp wit. While Lincoln excelled at self-mockery, nothing gave him greater pleasure than satirical work lampooning hypocrisy and ethical double standards. He particularly enjoyed David R. Locke's satiric writings by Petroleum V. Nasby, a fictional bigoted secessionist preacher, and the book explores the nuances of Lincoln's enthusiasm for what he called Locke's genius, showing the moral springs of Lincoln's humor.

Richard Carwardine methodically demonstrates that Lincoln's funny stories were the means of securing political or personal advantage, sometimes by frontal assault on opponents but more often by depiction through parable, obfuscation through hilarity, refusal through wit, and diversion through cunning. Throughout his life Lincoln worked to develop the humorist's craft and hone the art of storytelling. His jokes were valuable in advancing his careers as politician and lawyer and in navigating his course during a storm-tossed presidency. His merriness, however, coexisted with self-absorbed contemplation and melancholy. Humor was his lifeline; dark levity acted as a tonic, giving Lincoln strength to tackle the severe challenges he faced. At the same time, a reputation for unrestrained, uncontrollable humor gave welcome ammunition to his political foes. In fact, Lincoln's jocularity elicited waves of criticism during his presidency. He was dismissed as a smutty joker, a first rate second rate man, and a joke incarnated.

Since his death, Lincoln's anecdotes and jokes have become detached from the context that had given them their political and cultural bite, losing much of the ironic and satiric meaning that he had intended. With incisive analysis and laugh-inducing examples, Carwardine helps to recapture a strong component of Lincoln's character and reanimates the good humor of our sixteenth president.

When Olinka Vistica and Drazen Grubisic split up, they did what no separated couple had ever done before - they set up a museum dedicated to mementos of love, and the touching, often humorous stories of how that love developed. And how it ended. The Museum of Broken Relationships, in the Old Town of Zagreb, has since become an international phenomenon. Tens of thousands of people from around the world have sent in objects that summed up or marked their relationship, including a red wedding dress, an axe, and a modem from a Commodore 64. Through this collection of curious exhibits, the museum brings together stories of breaking up that might seem extraordinary, but that resonate with us all.

It's All Relative: Adventures Up and Down the World's Family Tree

New York Times bestselling author of The Know-It-All and The Year of Living Biblically, A.J. Jacobs undergoes a hilarious, heartfelt quest to understand what constitutes family—where it begins and how far it goes—and attempts to untangle the true meaning of the “Family of Humankind.”

A.J. Jacobs has received some strange emails over the years, but this note was perhaps the strangest: “You don’t know me, but I’m your eighth cousin. And we have over 80,000 relatives of yours in our database.”

That’s enough family members to fill Madison Square Garden four times over. Who are these people, A.J. wondered, and how do I find them? So began Jacobs’s three-year adventure to help build the biggest family tree in history.

Jacobs’s journey would take him to all seven continents. He drank beer with a US president, found himself singing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and unearthed genetic links to Hollywood actresses and real-life scoundrels. After all, we can choose our friends, but not our family.

“Whether he’s posing as a celebrity, outsourcing his chores, or adhering strictly to the Bible, we love reading about the wacky lifestyle experiments of author A.J. Jacobs” (Entertainment Weekly). Now Jacobs upends, in ways both meaningful and hilarious, our understanding of genetics and genealogy, tradition and tribalism, identity and connection. It’s All Relative is a fascinating look at the bonds that connect us all.

Santa's Husband
Offering a fresh twist on Kris Kringle, a clever yet heartfelt book that tells the story of a black Santa, his white husband, and their life in the North Pole. Everyone knows that Santa Claus is jolly, but in Santa's Husband, this cherished symbol of the holiday season is also black and gay, and married to an equally cheery man. In this witty and sweet illustrated Christmas tale, humor writer Daniel Kibblesmith introduces us to Mr. and Mr. Claus, and gives us a glimpse of their lives together. We see the Clauses sitting by the fire at their cozy North Pole home, vacationing at the beach, having an occasional disagreement, celebrating their wedding day, and comforting each other when some loudmouth people on television angrily dispute Santa's appearance and lifestyle. In the weeks before Christmas, Santa's husband helps with all the pre-Christmas work, from double-checking lists, to feeding the reindeer (organic gluten-free grains, of course), to negotiating labor disputes with the restive workshop elves. At the height of toy-making season, he even fills in for his busy hubby at the mall to ensure every child can meet the Big Guy in the red suit, and give him their wish list. As this charming book reminds us, Santa Claus can come in all shapes and colors and sizes-just like the children and families he visits all over the world each Christmas eve. Featuring beautiful watercolor pictures drawn by artist AP Quach, Santa's Husband is a delightful gift for readers of all ages.

Who is the greatest dunker of all time? Which version of the Michael Jordan was the best Michael Jordan? What is allowed and absolutely not allowed in a game of pickup basketball? Basketball (and Other Things) presents readers with a whole new set of pivotal and ridiculous fan disputes from basketball history, providing arguments and answers, explained with the wit and wisdom that is unique to Shea Serrano. Serrano breaks down debates that NBA fans didn't even know they needed, from the classic (How many years during his career was Kobe Bryant actually the best player in the league?) to the fantastical (If you could assign different values to different shots throughout basketball history, what would they be and why?). With incredible art from Arturo Torres, this book is a must-have for anyone who has ever stayed up late into the night debating basketball's greatest moments, what-ifs, stories, and legends, or for those who are discovering the mythology of basketball for the first time.

The Ladybird Book of The Nerd (Ladybird for Grown-Ups)
THE PERFECT GIFT for anyone who not only loves watching their favourite TV series over and over, but also enjoys reading online forums about their favourite TV series over and over. __________________________________ 'This is a nerd. He has a PhD and works in the biochemistry lab of a university hospital. But this is not what makes him a nerd. His catalogued and indexed collection of over 6,000 empty crisp packets does that.' __________________________________ 'These nerds have paid money to see a film they think is terrible and have seen at least thirty times before. They are having the most fun they can possibly have.' __________________________________ This delightful book is the latest in the series of Ladybird books which have been specially planned to help grown-ups with the world about them. The large clear script, the careful choice of words, the frequent repetition and the thoughtful matching of text with pictures all enable grown-ups to think they have taught themselves to cope. Featuring original Ladybird artwork alongside brilliantly funny, brand new text.
