Product Description
Customer Reviews
<b>Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and bestselling author of <i>Dave Barry Turns 40</i> now shows </b><b>how to age gracefully, taking cues from his beloved and highly intelligent dog, Lucy.</b><BR><BR>Faced with the obstacles and challenges of life after middle age, Dave Barry turns to his best dog, Lucy, to learn how to live his best life. From “Make New Friends” (an unfortunate fail when he can’t overcome his dislike for mankind) to “Don’t Stop Having Fun” (validating his longtime membership in a marching unit that performs in parades—and even Obama’s inauguration), Dave navigates his later years with good humor and grace. Lucy teaches Dave how to live in the present, how to let go of daily grievances, and how to feel good in your own skin. The lessons are drawn from Dave’s routine humiliations and stream-of-consciousness accounts of the absurdities of daily life, which will leave you heaving with laughter and recognition.<BR> <BR>Laugh-out-loud hilarious, whether he’s trying to “Pay Attention to the People You Love” (even when your brain is not listening) or deciding to “Let Go of Your Anger,” Dave Barry’s <i>Lessons From Lucy</i> is a witty and wise guide to joyous living.

<b>"Think the next <i>Educated</i> or <i>Wild</i>. Palmer’s memoir of beating the odds to become a horse champion is an inspiring saga of perseverance—and a classic underdog tale." —<i>Entertainment Weekly</i>, 1 of the 15 Most Anticipated Books of the Year</b><br /><br /><br /><br /><b>Named a Best Book of Spring by <i>Wall Street Journal Magazine, Esquire, Elle, Southern Living</i>, and <i>Buzzfeed</i><br /><br /> <br /><br />"If you like your memoirs to revolve around singular experiences, Lara Prior-Palmer’s <i>Rough Magic</i> delivers." —John Williams, <i>The New York Times</i><br /></b><br /><br /><br /><br />At the age of nineteen, Lara Prior-Palmer discovered a website devoted to “the world’s longest, toughest horse race”—an annual competition of endurance and skill that involves dozens of riders racing a series of twenty-five wild ponies across 1,000 kilometers of Mongolian grassland. On a whim, she decided to enter the race. As she boarded a plane to East Asia, she was utterly unprepared for what awaited her.<br /><br /><br /><br />Riders often spend years preparing to compete in the Mongol Derby, a course that re-creates the horse messenger system developed by Genghis Khan, and many fail to finish. Prior-Palmer had no formal training. She was driven by her own restlessness, stubbornness, and a lifelong love of horses. She raced for ten days through extreme heat and terrifying storms, catching a few hours of sleep where she could at the homes of nomadic families. Battling bouts of illness and dehydration, exhaustion and bruising falls, she decided she had nothing to lose. Each dawn she rode out again on a fresh horse, scrambling up mountains, swimming through rivers, crossing woodlands and wetlands, arid dunes and open steppe, as American television crews chased her in their jeeps.<br /><br /><br /><br />Told with terrific suspense and style, in a voice full of poetry and soul, <i>Rough Magic</i> captures the extraordinary story of one young woman who forged ahead, against all odds, to become the first female winner of this breathtaking race.

<p><strong>From one of the most respected figures in the dog rescue community come the harrowing, funny, and inspiring stories of nine incredible dogs that shaped her life.</strong></p><p></p><p></p><p>Tia Torres, beloved underdog advocate and star of Animal Planet's hit show <em>Pit Bulls & Parolees,</em> chronicles her roller-coaster life in this heartwarming memoir featuring some of her best-loved dogs. With inimitable honesty and characteristic brashness, Tia captures the spirit and heart of these intelligent and loving canines, while carrying us behind the scenes of her TV show, into the heart of post-Katrina New Orleans, onto the soundstages of Hollywood films, and even to the jungles of Sri Lanka.</p><strong><p></p></strong><p>Tia has devoted her life to shattering the stereotype that pit bulls are dangerous, vicious predators. As the top dog at the Villalobos Rescue Center in New Orleans, the largest pit bull rescue in the United States, she and her team have rescued, rehabilitated, and rehomed hundreds of animals that might otherwise have been destroyed. As she puts it, "Most of the stories in this book are about animals (and a few humans) that needed someone to believe in them and a purpose in order to show their true nobility." </p><p></p><p>Each dog Tia writes about here has overcome abuse, trauma, neglect, or just bad luck to become a stalwart, loving companion to Tia and her family. You'll meet<strong> </strong>Duke<strong>,</strong> whose intelligence and matinee-idol looks made him a star in movies and music videos; Junkyard Joe, whose single-minded passion for tennis balls was channeled into expertise as a drug-sniffing dog;<strong> </strong>Bluie<strong>,</strong> the unswerving protector of Tia's daughter Tania; and a host of other unforgettable canines. </p><p></p><em><p>My Life Among the Underdogs</em> is above all a love story--one that is sure to grip the heart of anyone who has ever loved a dog. <strong></p></strong>

<p><b><i>A Wall Street Journal</i> bestseller.</b></p><p>The powerful bond between humans and dogs is one that’s uniquely cherished. Loyal, obedient, and affectionate, they are truly “man’s best friend.” But do dogs love us the way we love them? Emory University neuroscientist Gregory Berns had spent decades using MRI imaging technology to study how the human brain works, but a different question still nagged at him: What is my dog thinking?</p><p>After his family adopted Callie, a shy, skinny terrier mix, Berns decided that there was only one way to answer that question—use an MRI machine to scan the dog’s brain. His colleagues dismissed the idea. Everyone knew that dogs needed to be restrained or sedated for MRI scans. But if the military could train dogs to operate calmly in some of the most challenging environments, surely there must be a way to train dogs to sit in an MRI scanner.</p><p>With this radical conviction, Berns and his dog would embark on a remarkable journey and be the first to glimpse the inner workings of the canine brain. Painstakingly, the two worked together to overcome the many technical, legal, and behavioral hurdles. Berns’s research offers surprising results on how dogs empathize with human emotions, how they love us, and why dogs and humans share one of the most remarkable friendships in the animal kingdom.</p><p><i>How Dogs Love Us</i> answers the age-old question of dog lovers everywhere and offers profound new evidence that dogs should be treated as we would treat our best human friends: with love, respect, and appreciation for their social and emotional intelligence.</p>
