Dear Bob and Sue is the story of our (Matt and Karen Smith) journey to all 59 U.S. National Parks. We wrote the book as a series of emails to our friends, Bob and Sue, in which we share our humorous and quirky observations. It is at times irreverent, unpredictable and sarcastic, all in the spirit of humor. We describe a few of our experiences in each park but do not provide an exhaustive overview of each experience or park. We did not intend for this book to be a travel guide nor a recommendation for how to visit all 59 of the U.S. National Parks although many readers have said they’ve found it to be a useful guide. Rather, it is our story about how we did it.<br /><br />If you enjoy quirky humor set in the magnificent U.S. National Parks, this book may be for you. If you are looking for eloquent descriptions of the natural beauty we encountered or detailed descriptions of every activity you can do in each park, there are many other books available where you can find that information. All that said, many readers have commented that it’s “laugh out loud” funny and a light-hearted glimpse of our journey through the parks. <br /><br />Some have voiced concerns about the language we used in the book. We are not entirely sure which are the offending words, but here are a few possible candidates. There is a point in the book where Matt suggests that one of the caves at Carlsbad Caverns National Park be named Put Your Scrotum in a Vise Cave. Another passage mentions that Matt has a low tolerance for bullshit. Still, another quotes Karen as saying that men who use a laptop while it sits directly on their lap expose themselves to the risk of “cooking their testicles.” For the sake of full disclosure, Karen’s testicle comment offends Matt as well. These are representative examples of what we feel are the most “adult” language usages in the book. If these are offensive to you, then you might re-consider whether you should read this book. We also talk about drinking beer and eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Based on comments we’ve received from readers, we should warn you about these as well.

In this digital world, few restaurant guidebooks remain, but Las Vegas is lucky! Eating Las Vegas is not only a dedicated guide to some of the best eateries in the United States, it’s written by the widely recognized expert on the Vegas food scene, the inimitable John Curtas.<br /><br />After considering―and eating at―hundreds of contenders both inside and out of the city’s dozens of world-class resorts, John has assembled this exclusive guide to the “52 Essential” restaurants in Las Vegas.<br /><br />And he doesn’t stop there. In addition to the top 52, this 2018 edition features sections on the burgeoning Chinatown district, the potentially best-in-the-country roster of steakhouses, French restaurants, and burger joints, the batch of recently arrived chain restaurants, and John’s list of the city’s “Bottom 10.” <br /><br />In addition, quick-reference lists highlight the best bets for buffets, Italian and pizza, Mexican, sushi, desserts, cheap eats, late-night dining, and more. And new to this edition are topical essays, including “The Job of a Restaurant Critic,” “The Glories of Dining Alone,” “Chef Worship,” “Twenty Suggestions for Dining Out in Style,” and, after upwards of 12,000 Vegas restaurant experiences in 25 years, John’s “Perfect Meal.”<br /><br />Now in its sixth edition, Eating Las Vegas has become the premier source for Las Vegas dining information. With reviews ranging from some of the Strip’s most lavish dining rooms to hole-in-the-wall ethnic gems, this 2018 volume puts the city’s entire extraordinary dining experience in your hands.

<p>Jane Kramer started cooking when she started writing. Her first dish, a tinned-tuna curry, was assembled on a tiny stove in her graduate student apartment while she pondered her first writing assignment. From there, whether her travels took her to a tent settlement in the Sahara for an afternoon interview with an old Berber woman toiling over goat stew, or to the great London restaurateur and author Yotam Ottolenghi's Notting Hill apartment, where they assembled a buttered phylo-and-cheese tower called a <i>mutabbaq,</i> Jane always returned from the field with a new recipe, and usually, a friend.</p><p> For the first time, Jane's beloved food pieces from <i>The New Yorker, </i>where she has been a staff writer since 1964, are arranged in one place--a collection of definitive chef profiles, personal essays, and gastronomic history that is at once deeply personal and humane. <i>The Reporter's Kitchen </i>follows Jane everywhere, and throughout her career--from her summer writing retreat in Umbria, where Jane and her anthropologist husband host memorable expat Thanksgivings--in July--to the Nordic coast, where Jane and acclaimed Danish chef Rene Redzepi, of Noma, forage for edible sea-grass. <i>The Reporter’s Kitchen</i> is an important record of culture distilled through food around the world. It's welcoming and inevitably surprising.</p>
