Eli Canaan is a believer. And, like many, he believes himself to be a principled and moral man. Well, for the most part anyway. But, after a series of missteps, sins, some would say, Eli's life is suddenly and unexpectedly altered forever. A spurned wife, a gypsy, a hex and spiritual intervention may all be at the root of Eli's unexpected, deep and earnest introspection, which is like nothing he has ever experienced before - in this world. God and Jesus, as well as a host of zany characters, help show Eli the pathway to redemption (among other things). During his journey Eli is entertained by atheists, a renowned psychoanalyst, and one of the greatest jokesters in history, Groucho Marx. Eli takes nothing for granted as he is guided through a series of events and opportunities for learning what ought to be everyone's purpose in life - living the commandments as they were meant to be lived by. An uplifting story of hope and meaning and belief in the goodness that can come by opening one's eyes to the Heavens... Sam Moffie once again creates a story which every reader will identify with, feel empathy for, and be entertained by. The protagonist's adventures and concomitant soul-searching take us to a heightened level, whereby we ourselves begin to seek and ultimately find the road to salvation, if we choose to follow it. And, as any reader of Moffie knows, a good laugh is never more than a page away, if that... Like Vonnegut... no holds barred Like Rand... the consummate pragmatist Like Aesop... a moral message disguised by humor Moffie... master of all domains

In an accessible question-and-answer format, Edward Finstein (a.k.a. Dr. WineKnow) takes the reader through the various areas of wine knowledge, working with questions he has been asked by clients and students during his quarter-century as a wine consultant, writer, and teacher. He addresses questions about the growing of wine, making it, finding and buying it (including a demystification of the puzzling information on wine labels), storing and aging it, and serving it (where should you store your glasses to assure good tasting?). Most attention, however, is paid to enjoying it, including how to handle restaurant wine lists and rituals, how your health can affect your tasting, and how to get the most from the matching of food and wine. Each chapter is peppered with “Grape Flashes,” containing interesting bits of information, and the book also includes a glossary of wine terms, a simple guide to food and wine matching, and a selected bibliography for further reading. Edward Finstein believes that the most important thing about wine is enjoyment – and understanding aids that enjoyment. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Choosing a bottle of wine should be fun, not frightening. After all, one of the most important elements of enjoying wine is not so much the vintage or the vineyard but the occasion on which it is enjoyed. In their new book, Wine for Every Day and Every Occasion, Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher, authors of the popular weekly "Tastings" column in the Wall Street Journal, give you the kind of honest, accessible wine information that is hard to find. In Wine for Every Day and Every Occasion, Dottie and John, as they are known to their fans, answer the most frequently asked questions about what wine to drink on specific occasions. They cover all the bases: What wine should I put away for my newborn's twenty-first birthday? What wine is best with Thanksgiving turkey? They also suggest ways in which wine can make every day a little bit more of an occasion -- how to throw a wine tasting, how to start a wine-tasting group, even how to add wine to your tailgating party. And they share scores of tips from people like you. Chapters include lists of specific wines and provide readers with suggestions for choosing Champagne to ring in the New Year and for chilled whites (and even reds) to drink in the summer. There is no stodginess about vintages and there are no numbered ratings. Wine for Every Day and Every Occasion gives you simple, straightforward advice to help you choose the best wines for life's best moments. As Dottie and John say, "The problem with most wine books is that they are about wine. Our book is about life." So raise your glass to Wine for Every Day and Every Occasion. And drink to life.

The iconoclastic host of the PBS show Enjoying Wine with Mark Phillips, has been turning the wine world on its ear since it first aired. In his 2009 wave maker, Swallow This, Mark stirred things up even more to the delight of consumers. Now comes the second edition, and it's a doozy. Among its new material are topics such as how to "fix" wine if you don't like it; wine selection and pricing ratings for major retail chains' additional food and wine pairing guidelines; how global warming is significantly changing wine growing regions; and a list of restaurants with the best deals on wine in the major metros of every state. Mark offers a whole new approach to wine, which flies in the face of what has been traditionally taught and serves as a practical and empowering alternative. Witty, unique and never boring, Swallow This will change the way you think about wine.

Eliminating the smirking, pudgy little scientist proves to be a lot harder than he expected. The smug doctor's plans of advancing human civilization by introducing 21st century concepts and technology more than a thousand years early sound like the ravings of a madman with a God complex... but with the possibility to avoid the Dark Ages and the stagnation of civilization for almost a millennium, is Jameson's scheme a chance worth taking?

You are not the first, and you are definitely not the last. . . .And probably you are not the best. It's never a good idea to take messages scrawled in bar bathrooms personally. Eva Lockart knows this, really she does. Still, such things tend to take on a weird sort of significance when one is in the throes of a panic attack prompted by irrational jealousy of one's boyfriend's ex-wife. Something that's been happening lately--a lot. . . Not that Eva has anything to worry about, really. "X" (she has a name, but why dwell on details?) is long gone, and Will loves Eva now--loves her enough, in fact, to want to move in and get married. So, she's got a guy she's crazy about, a thriving business, and "fun" wedding plans to make, including finding an affordable reception site that doesn't have dead animal heads hanging from the walls, a non-poofy dress that adequately corrals her cleavage; and a cake that isn't orange inside. Still, what's a little stress in exchange for wedded bliss? When Eva thinks of all the married people she knows, she's positive that this may turn out to be the biggest mistake of her life because all those "married people" are now either acrimoniously divorced, or seemingly on the brink. But once the bridal ball is rolling downhill, it's damn near impossible to stop it without getting crushed. And now, the fact that Will's done this once before has Eva running that much faster to make things perfect--and getting herself into more trouble than she ever dreamed possible. . .
