<b><b>Thai takeout meets authentic, regional flavors in this collection of 100 recipes for easy, economical, and accessible Thai classics--from the rising star behind the blog </b><i>She Simmers</i></b>.<br /><br />Who can say no to a delicious plate of Pad Thai with Shrimp; a fresh, tangy Green Papaya Salad; golden Fried Spring Rolls; or a rich, savory Pork Toast with Cucumber Relish? Thai food is not only one of the most vibrant, wonderfully varied cuisines in the world, it also happens to be one of the tastiest, and a favorite among American eaters.<br /><br /> The good news is, with the right ingredients and a few basic tools and techniques, authentic Thai food is easily within reach of home cooks. Take it from Leela Punyaratabandhu, a Bangkok native and author of the popular Thai cooking blog <i>She Simmers</i>. In her much-anticipated debut cookbook, Leela shares her favorite recipes for classic Thai fare, including beloved family recipes, popular street food specialties, and iconic dishes from Thai restaurant menus around the world.<br /><br /> All of Leela’s recipes have been tested and tweaked to ensure that even the busiest cook can prepare them at home. With chapters on key ingredients and tools, base recipes, one-plate meals, classic rice accompaniments, and even Thai sweets, <i>Simple Thai Food</i> is a complete primer for anyone who wants to give Thai cooking a try. By the end of the book, you’ll be whipping up tom yam soup and duck red curry that will put your local takeout joint to shame. But perhaps more importantly, you’ll discover an exciting new world of Thai flavors and dishes—including Stir-Fried Chicken with Chile Jam, Leaf-Wrapped Salad Bites, and Crispy Wings with Three-Flavored Sauce—that will open your eyes to all the wonderful possibilities that real Thai cooking has to offer.

John Kretschmer is sailing's practical philosopher – as much a doer as a thinker. And that is the overarching theme of this chronicle of a sailing life. Often amusing, sometimes poignant, occasionally terrifying but always inspiring, his deeply personal account is a welcome reminder of the good life waiting at sea.<br /> <br />With hundreds of thousands of nautical miles under his keel, John's adventures have taken him several times around the world, with challenging crossings of the Atlantic and the Pacific, a narrow escape from a coup in Yemen, an unlikely deliverance from a coral reef off Belize as well as more serene, introspective passages where trade winds are blowing and stories are flowing. His crew has included CEOs, actors, writers, teachers, kids – in essence, everyone.<br /> <br />John's narrative is interwoven with practical tips and advice in seamanship, but also, and just as importantly, his hard-won insights about making the most of our lives. He truly believes we find out who we really are, and what we are capable of, far from the shackles of land, when we find a place where time changes shape – days may merge into one another, but minutes are memorable.<br /> <br />To live adventurously is to live more fully, and that is the life John Kretschmer continues to live. In this book he shares his simple profundities that will inspire those who live to sail, and those seeking something more rewarding from life.

<DIV><B>The inspiration for <I>The Durrells in Corfu</I>, a Masterpiece production on public television: A naturalist’s account of his childhood on the exotic Greek island.</B><BR />  <BR /> When the Durrells could no longer endure the gray English climate, they did what any sensible family would do: sold their house and relocated to the sun-soaked island of Corfu.<BR />  <BR /> As they settled into their new home, hilarious mishaps ensued as a ten-year-old Gerald Durrell pursued his interest in natural history and explored the island’s fauna. Soon, toads and tortoises, bats and butterflies—as well as scorpions, geckos, ladybugs, praying mantises, octopuses, pigeons, and gulls—became a common sight in the Durrell villa.<BR />  <BR /> Uproarious tales of the island’s animals and Durrell’s fond reflections on his family bring this delightful memoir to life. Capturing the joyous chaos of growing up in an unconventional household, <I>My Family and Other Animals</I> will transport you to a place you won’t want to leave.<BR />  <BR /><I>This ebook features an illustrated biography of Gerald Durrell including rare photos from the author’s estate.</I><BR />  </DIV>

<b>How can garbage turn into gold? What does recycling have to do with globalization? Where does all that stuff we throw away go, anyway? </b><br /><br />When you drop your Diet Coke can or yesterday's newspaper in the recycling bin, where does it go? Probably halfway around the world, to people and places that clean up what you don't want and turn it into something you can't wait to buy. In <I>Junkyard Planet</I>, Adam Minter-veteran journalist and son of an American junkyard owner-travels deeply into a vast, often hidden, 500-billion-dollar industry that's transforming our economy and environment.<br /><br />Minter takes us from back-alley Chinese computer recycling operations to recycling factories capable of processing a jumbo jet's worth of trash every day. Along the way, we meet an international cast of characters who have figured out how to squeeze Silicon Valley-scale fortunes from what we all throw away. <I>Junkyard Planet</I> reveals how “going green” usually means making money-and why that's often the most sustainable choice, even when the recycling methods aren't pretty.<br /><br />With unmatched access to and insight on the waste industry, and the explanatory gifts and an eye for detail worthy of a John McPhee or William Langewiesche, Minter traces the export of America's garbage and the massive profits that China and other rising nations earn from it. What emerges is an engaging, colorful, and sometimes troubling tale of how the way we consume and discard stuff brings home the ascent of a developing world that recognizes value where Americans don't. <I>Junkyard Planet</I> reveals that Americans might need to learn a smarter way to take out the trash.

<p>From the assassination that triggered World War I to the ethnic warfare in Serbia, Bosnia, and Croatia, the Balkans have been the crucible of the twentieth century, the place where terrorism and genocide first became tools of policy. Chosen as one of the Best Books of the Year by <i>The New York Times</i>, and greeted with critical acclaim as "the most insightful and timely work on the Balkans to date" (<i>The Boston Globe</i>), Kaplan's prescient, enthralling, and often chilling political travelogue is already a modern classic.</p><p>This new edition of <i>Balkan Ghosts</i> includes six opinion pieces written by Robert Kaplan about the Balkans between 1996 and 2000 beginning just after the implementation of the Dayton Peace Accords and ending after the conclusion of the Kosovo war, with the removal of Slobodan Milosevic from power.</p>

<B>The Nobel Prize–winning “wildly visionary and creative novel” of modern China from the Newman Prize winning author of <I>Red Sorghum</I> and <I>The Garlic Ballads</I> (<I>The New York Times</I>).</B><BR />  <BR /> In this “epic black comedy” benevolent landowner Ximen Nao is less than pleased to find himself in the underworld after being killed in Chairman Mao’s land reform movement. And even though he’s unwilling to admit to any wrongdoing, he is soon punished by being send back to the mortal realm . . . as a donkey, an ox, a pig, a dog, a monkey, and so on (<I>Kirkus Reviews</I>).<BR />  <BR /> But in each of his reincarnations, Nao experiences another defining event in China’s maddening national transformation under the heavy hand of Communism—such as the Chinese Famine, the ever-changing Cultural Revolution, and the devastating failure of the Great Leap Forward. And in each new life, he finds both the humanity and the insanity of his burgeoning homeland.<BR />  <BR /> With this “exhuberantly imaginative” China’s most revered, renowned, and feared literary artist proves once again that the only true freedom is the freedom of the heart and mind (<I>Washington Post</I>).
