<p><strong>"Meticulously researched history…look[s] at how wine and Western civilization grew up together." —Dave McIntyre, <em>Washington Post</em></strong></p><br /><p>Because science and technology have opened new avenues for vintners, our taste in wine has grown ever more diverse. Wine is now the subject of careful chemistry and global demand. Paul Lukacs recounts the journey of wine through history—how wine acquired its social cachet, how vintners discovered the twin importance of place and grape, and how a basic need evolved into a realm of choice.</p>

<b><i>New York Times </i>Bestseller</b><br /><b><br /></b><b>From beer to Coca-Cola, the six drinks that have helped shape human history. </b><br /><b><br /></b>Throughout human history, certain drinks have done much more than just quench thirst. As Tom Standage relates with authority and charm, six of them have had a surprisingly pervasive influence on the course of history, becoming the defining drink during a pivotal historical period. <br /><br /><i>A History of the World in 6 Glasses</i> tells the story of humanity from the Stone Age to the 21st century through the lens of beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea, and cola. Beer was first made in the Fertile Crescent and by 3000 B.C.E. was so important to Mesopotamia and Egypt that it was used to pay wages. In ancient Greece wine became the main export of her vast seaborne trade, helping spread Greek culture abroad. Spirits such as brandy and rum fueled the Age of Exploration, fortifying seamen on long voyages and oiling the pernicious slave trade. Although coffee originated in the Arab world, it stoked revolutionary thought in Europe during the Age of Reason, when coffeehouses became centers of intellectual exchange. And hundreds of years after the Chinese began drinking tea, it became especially popular in Britain, with far-reaching effects on British foreign policy. Finally, though carbonated drinks were invented in 18th-century Europe they became a 20th-century phenomenon, and Coca-Cola in particular is the leading symbol of globalization.<br /><br />For Tom Standage, each drink is a kind of technology, a catalyst for advancing culture by which he demonstrates the intricate interplay of different civilizations. You may never look at your favorite drink the same way again.

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER • Lose up to 16 Pounds in 14 Days with <i>Zero Belly Smoothies</i>!</b><br />  <br /> Watch the pounds disappear—with the press of a button! That’s all it takes to blend up a Zero Belly Smoothie, a unique mix of supernutrients that will flatten your gut, boost your metabolism, heal your digestive system, and turn off your fat genes for good.<br />  <br /> With fat-burning proteins and a specially selected array of high-powered fruits and vegetables, Zero Belly Smoothies—based on the <i>New York Times</i> bestseller <i>Zero Belly Diet</i>—are the fastest and most delicious ways ever created to sip off the pounds!<br />  <br /> Inside you’ll find a complete shopping guide, a bonus cleanse program, and more than 100 intensely flavorful recipes, including tasty green drinks, fresh and fruity smoothies, nutty, chocolatey shakes, and savory surprises.<br />  <br /> <i>Zero Belly Smoothies</i> will help you<br /> • Lose up to 16 pounds in 14 days.<br /> • Melt away stubborn fat, from your belly first.<br /> • Put an end to bloating and discomfort.<br /> • Detox from unhealthy foods so you enjoy all-day energy.<br /> • Turn off your fat storage genes and make long-term weight loss effortless.<br /> • Look and feel younger and healthier than ever!<br />  <br /> You’ll be stunned and inspired by the results of an amazing 500-person test panel—men and women who lost weight quickly, and with ease, following the original Zero Belly diet, which included many of these Zero Belly Smoothies. In just the first 14 days<br /> Bob McMicken, 51, lost 16.3 pounds.<br /> Kyle Cambridge, 28, lost 15 pounds.<br /> Martha Chesler, 54, lost 11 pounds.<br /> Matt Brunner, 43, lost 14 pounds.<br />  <br /> Focusing your weight-loss efforts on drinks will help you quickly strip away flab in a number of ways. Here’s what makes Zero Belly Smoothies so effective: <br />  <br /> <b>1. They take the stress out of cooking and eating well.</b><br /> Studies have shown that the more diverse your diet, the more likely you are to experience weight gain. In fact, those who ate the widest range of foods showed a 120 percent greater increase in waist circumference compared with those who had the least diversity. In other words, people who have the best success at weight loss pick a set number of foods and tend to stick to them. Zero Belly Smoothies allow you to do exactly that.<br />  <br /> <b>2. They crowd out the junk in your diet.</b><br /> Zero Belly Smoothies come in all different flavors—chocolatey, fruity, green, and even savory—but they all have one thing in common: no added sugars. In a 2015 study in Sweden, researchers followed 42,400 men over the course of 12 years. They found that men who consumed at least two servings per day of sweetened beverages had a 23 percent higher risk of heart failure compared with those who did not.<br />  <br /> <b>3. They battle food allergies and reduce inflammation.</b><br /> What’s also unique about Zero Belly Smoothies is that they are vegan: no milk, no yogurt, no whey protein. Plant-based protein powders are a low-sugar, high-fiber alternative to popular dairy-based supplements. A study by the University of Tampa that compared plant protein with whey found it to be equally as effective at changing body composition and boosting muscle recovery and growth!<br />  <br /> <b>4. They make you feel fuller longer!</b><br /> Studies show that high-protein smoothies are highly effective at rushing nutrients to your muscles and that blended fruit drinks, which include all the fiber, will actually keep you fuller longer than fruit juices.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>
