Wreck This Journal: To Create is to Destroy, Now With Even More Ways to Wreck!
A new edition of Keri Smith's bestseller, with updated material Think of Wreck This Journal as the anarchist's Artist's Way -- the book for those who've always wanted to draw outside the lines but were afraid to do it. For anyone who's ever wished to, but had trouble starting, keeping, or finishing a journal or sketchbook comes Wreck This Journal, an illustrated book featuring a subversive collection of suggestions, asking readers to muster up their best mistake - and mess-making abilities to fill the pages of the book (and destroy them). Through a series of creatively and quirkily illustrated prompts, acclaimed artist Keri Smith encourages journalers to engage in destructive acts - poking holes through pages, adding photos and defacing them, painting with coffee, colouring outside the lines, and more - in order to experience the true creative process. With Keri Smith's unique sensibility, readers are introduced to a new way of art and journal making, discovering novel ways to escape the fear of the blank page and fully engage in the creative process.

Humble Pi: A Comedy of Maths Errors
What makes a bridge wobble when it's not meant to? How do billions of dollars mysteriously vanish into thin air? How does a building rock when its resonant frequency matches a gym class leaping to Snap's 1990 hit I've Got The Power? The answer is maths. Or, to be precise, what happens when maths goes wrong in the real world. As Matt Parker shows us, our modern lives are built on maths: computer programmes, finance, engineering. And most of the time this maths works quietly behind the scenes, until ... it doesn't. Exploring and explaining a litany of glitches, near-misses and mishaps involving the internet, big data, elections, street signs, lotteries, the Roman empire and a hapless Olympic shooting team, Matt Parker shows us the bizarre ways maths trips us up, and what this reveals about its essential place in our world. This book shows how, by making maths our friend, we can learn from its pitfalls. It also contains puzzles, challenges, geometric socks, jokes about binary code and three deliberate mistakes. Getting it wrong has never been more fun.

Hilarious full-color cartoons from illustrator Danny Cameron are paired with witty captions in this tongue-in-cheek look at mindfulness, through the eyes of our canine companions. Repeat this mantra to yourself whenever you're feeling anxious: 'I flow from a place of grace.' Peace. Gratitude. Concentration. Stillness. Serenity. Composure. Focus. Whether they're honing their powers of concentration (have you ever seen anyone focus on something so intently as a mutt with a bone?), being in the moment (a snooze is so much more satisfying when you really appreciate the snooze), or taking time to explore their senses (all those bottoms aren't going to sniff themselves), dogs are paragons of mindfulness. So maybe they're not always quite as composed or graceful as they'd like, but at least they're trying - and we could all learn a lot from these enlightened pups.

At Wit's End: The Deadly Discourse on the Jewish Joke
Scholarly and thought-provoking work that places Jewish humor at the center of a discourse about Jewish and German relations through most of the 20th century At Wit's End explores the fascinating discourse on Jewish wit in the twentieth century when the Jewish joke became the subject of serious humanistic inquiry and inserted itself into the cultural and political debates among Germans and Jews against the ideologically-charged backdrop of anti-Semitism, the Jewish question, and the Holocaust. The first in-depth study to explore the Jewish joke as a crucial rhetorical figure in larger cultural debates in Germany, author Louis Kaplan presents an engrossing and lucid work of scholarship that examines how der judische Witz (referring to both Jewish wit and jokes) was utilized differently in a number of texts, from the Weimar Republic to the rise of National Socialism, and how it was reintroduced into the public sphere after the Holocaust with the controversial publication of Salcia Landmann's collection of Jewish jokes in the reparations era (Wiedergutmachung). Kaplan reviews the claims made about the Jewish joke and its provocative laughter by notable writers from a variety of ideological perspectives, demonstrating how their reflections on this complex cultural trope enables a better understanding of German-Jewish intercultural relations and their eventual breakdown in the Third Reich. He also illustrates how self-critical and self-ironic Jewish Witz maintained a fraught and ambivalent relationship with anti-Semitism. In reviewing this critical and traumatic moment in modern German-Jewish history through the deadly discourse on the Jewish joke, At Wit's End includes chapters on the virulent Austrian anti-Semitic racial theorist, Arthur Trebitsch, the Nazi racial propagandist, Siegfried Kadner, the German Marxist cultural historian, Eduard Fuchs, the Jewish diasporic historian, Erich Kahler, and the Jewish cabaret impresario, Kurt Robitschek, among others. Shedding new light on anti-Semitism and on the Jewish question leading up to the Holocaust, At Wit's End provides readers with a unique perspective by which to gain important insights about this crucial historical period that reverberates into the present day, when potentially offensive humor coupled with a toxic political climate and xenophobia can have deadly consequences.

Small Men on the Wrong Side of History: The Decline, Fall and Unlikely Return of Conservatism
Exploring why conservatives have lost almost every political argument since 1945, Ed West looks at this endless litany of failure from the perspective of one of the losers, in a semi-autobiographical, self-deprecating way. Since the 1950s the western world has gone through a huge cultural shift, comparable to the rise of Christianity during the late Roman period and the 16th century religious revolution unleashed by Martin Luther. Both of these led to profound changes in public ideas about morality and sexuality, and eventually to 'culture wars' between two deeply opposed groups. Today what we're witnessing is a sort of second Reformation, and that's why it's going to be long, painful and boring, and both sides are going to get more idiotic and hysterical, just as religious divisions once drove Catholics and Protestants into prolonged insanity. Conservatives, like the pagans and Catholics before them, are very much on the losing side. The future appears progressive and their defeat is inevitable, part of an 'arc of history' that leads irrevocably to a progressive utopia in which they're left in the dustbin. As Barack Obama said of al-Qaeda, another group of guys not entirely comfortable with the modern world, conservatives are 'Small Men on the Wrong Side of History'. Too many polemics and articles on the Right are tediously shouty, and too few of them explore where their arguments have fallen flat and why people find conservatives so repulsive. Small Men on the Wrong Side of History is aimed at being the rare conservative book that someone on the Left will enjoy. West will look at some of the idiocies of the modern Right and the strange characteristics shared by conservatives, including himself, but he will also offer explanations as to why people are conservative, and explain some of the benefits conservatism offers. In particular he argues it's now necessary as a break on 'runaway liberalism', the competitive desire to appear Woker Than Thou which is driving progressive politics to extremes, and which has provoked a reaction with figures like the psychologist Jordan Peterson and his legion of fans.

Disparates: Essays
In English disparate means different or miscellaneous -apt descriptors of these essays by Patrick Madden. In Spanish, however, disparate means nonsense, folly, or absurdity, -words appropriate to Madden's goal of undercutting any notion that essays must be serious business. Thus, in this collection, the essays are frivolous and lively, aiming to make readers laugh while they think about such abstract subjects as happiness and memory and unpredictability. In this vein, Madden takes sidelong swipes at weighty topics via form, with wildly meandering essays, abandoned essays in honor of the long tradition of essayists disparaging their own efforts, and guerrilla essays-which slip in quietly under the guise of a borrowed form, abruptly attack, and promptly escape, leaving laughter and contemplation in their wake. Madden also incorporates cameos from guest essayists, including Mary Cappello, Matthew Gavin Frank, David Lazar, Michael Martone, Jericho Parms, and Wendy S. Walters, much like a musician features other performers. Disparates reflects the current zeitgeist by taking on important issues with a touch of cleverness, a dash of humor, and a little help from one's friends.

Pop Star Goddesses: And How to Tap Into Their Energies to Invoke Your Best Self
A compendium of forty incredible female pop stars whose energies, virtues, and vices make them the ideal role models for our age-powerful women who can teach us all how to discover our own inner goddess. We are living in the age of the music goddess: Beyonce. Lady Gaga. Taylor Swift. Katy Perry. Britney. Nicki Minaj. Cardi B. Pink. Madonna. Rihanna. Gwen Stefani. Alicia Keys. Kelly Clarkson. Never before have so many women dominated their industry and pop culture itself with such creativity, passion, and force. Visionary and ferociously talented, these women are reshaping our society and our lives. In this stunningly designed compendium, Jennifer Armstrong offers an intimate, up-close look at forty of pop music's most revered goddesses, analyzing their performances, songs, videos, interviews, social media, activism, and personal lives to illuminate their significance for both critics and fans. These divas post astounding album sales, enjoy millions of radio plays, YouTube views, and social media followings, and sell out stadiums. While we are awed and inspired by their success, we worship them for so much more. Beyonce's work ethic. Nicki Minaj's no-bullshit attitude. Taylor Swift's relatability. Pink's sense of social justice. Jennifer Lopez's transformation from Jenny from the block to fashion icon. Each of these goddesses speaks to us in her own unique way. Beyonce is our superhuman alter ego; Britney is our survival instinct. Armstrong pairs each pop star goddess with a corresponding goddess from ancient cultures, and offers advice on how to invoke the pop star goddess's energy in your own life, providing journal prompts and a Power Song List that allows you harness the power of a particular pop goddess's energy when you need it. Filled with information, advice, insights, playlists, and forty gorgeous color illustrations, Pop Star Goddess will help you tune in and turn on your own divine energy.

Up All Night: Ted Turner, CNN, and the Birth of 24-Hour News
The wild inside story of the birth of CNN and dawn of the age of 24-hour news How did we get from an age of dignified nightly news broadcasts on three national networks to the age of 24-hour channels and constantly breaking news? The answer-thanks to Ted Turner and an oddball cast of cable television visionaries, big league rejects, and nonunion newbies-can be found in the basement of an abandoned country club in Atlanta. Because it was there, in the summer of 1980, that this motley crew somehow, against all odds, launched CNN. Lisa Napoli's Up All Night is an entertaining inside look at the founding of the upstart network that set out to change the way news was delivered and consumed. Mixing media history, a business adventure story, and great characters, Up All Night tells the story of a network that succeeded beyond even the wildest imaginings of its charismatic and uncontrollable founder, and paved the way for the world we live in today.

Talking IRL
Created for anyone who would rather text, Slack, or e-mail than speak, Talking IRL: Conversation Starters for When You Have to Talk to Someone helps eliminate awkward pauses to get readers through any social situation. We've become so used to communicating via text or emojis that many of us do not know how to navigate an actual verbal conversation. Whether at a party, in a meeting, or even on a phone call, figuring out what to say--let alone the right thing to say--can be as awkward as it is emotionally scarring. Talking IRL humorously addresses everyday danger zones--from work and dating to parties and funerals--with checklists for getting through a business lunch, tips on how to listen without picking up your phone to check your messages, and quotes from celebrities that speak directly to having to make, and get away from, conversation. With twenty-four conversation-starter stickers like I'm from ____, Ask me about my ______, and I stan _______, Talking IRL is a handy, indispensable guide for grads, people starting new jobs or moving to a new city, or, let's face it, anyone who comes into contact with other people!

Why Mommy Doesn't Give a ****
Mommy is single and ready to mingle. Shocked and shaken from her divorce from Simon, but determined to make the best of it, Ellen moves to pursue her rural dream of a quirky cottage with roses around the door and chickens in the garden. However, Paxo, Oxo and Bisto turn out to be highly obstreperous and the roses have jaggy thorns. The world of internet dating beckons, with mixed results, and Ellen clashes with Jane's difficult teenage years at every turn, but the one thing they can both agree on is that rescued Barry the Wolfdog is indeed The Ugliest Dog in the World, but is also the loveliest.

Why are things funny? How has humor changed over the centuries? How can humor be a political force? Featuring expert authors from across the globe, The Languages of Humor discusses three main types of humour: verbal, visual, and physical. Despite the differences between them, all have a common purpose, showing us in different ways the reality that we live in, and how we can reflect on that reality. To this end, the book shows how humor has been used to address such topics as the Holocaust and the Soviet Union, and why it has been controversial in cases including Charlie Hebdo. The Languages of Humor explores a subject that is of interest in a wide range of intellectual disciplines including sociology, psychology, communication, philosophy, history, social sciences, linguistics, computer science, literature, theatre, education, and cultural studies. This volume features contributions from world-leading academics, some of who have professional backgrounds in this field. This unique research-led book, which includes over 20 illustrations, offers a top-down analysis of humor studies.

Tails of Tottering Hall
This book is another collection of Annie Tempest's expertly-observed cartoons humorously depicting the archetypical English upper-class, following spirited traditionalists Dicky and Daphne Tottering, who reside in their lavish yet dilapidating ancestral home, Tottering Hall, together with their adored and exceedingly-spoilt dogs, affectionately named Slobber and Scribble. Daphne, otherwise known as Daffy, is a redoubtable and, these days, lamentably-dying breed, frequently referred to as a 'Country Lady', while Dicky just lives in another era altogether. Follow this endearing couple as they attempt to navigate an increasingly-modernised world with their mischievous pooches, both of whom hold a firm place in their owners' affections, allowing them to wreak all kinds of havoc with minimal consequences. Annie Tempest's ability to comically depict the highs and lows of dog ownership is second to none - and stands as a warming reminder that, despite muddy paws on the carpet and the occasional raiding of the fridge, we will love them all the same. The cartoons in this book are sure to resonate with all dog owners alike, as they compare the foibles of black Lab Slobber and working cocker Scribble to the eccentricities of their own treasured pets. Even if you've never had the pleasure of encountering these characters before, one cannot fail to be amused by these beautifully-executed cartoons.
