Michael Kesterton, fact collector extraordinaire – a man said to spend his days on the Internet and his nights in labyrinthine archives, thumbing through mildewed newsprint and thick manila folders – submits for your reading pleasure and possible edification his second eclectic collection of Sense and Silliness, chosen from his daily column, “Social Studies,” which appears on the back page of the Globe and Mail. Appropriately titled The Twelve Best Months of the Year, this modestly priced yet invaluable volume is guaranteed to bring, each and every month of the year, the sparkle of intellectual amusement to what might otherwise be a dreary, mind-numbing life. Dip into these pages and see Nellie Bly, intrepid female journalist, rise to the New York World’s 1889 challenge to go around the world in 80 days. She did it in a breakneck 72 days and six hours. Flip a few pages and learn why there's no point in chasing a leprechaun. (He won’t have a pot of gold, just a purse containing a shilling or two.) Enhance your party small talk a thousandfold with such tidbits as the fact that the Belgian comedian Georges Le Gloupier, who throws custard pies at prominent people he considers pompous, has hit philosopher Bernard-Henri Levy five times. Go ahead, treat yourself to a year’s worth of such indispensable brain snacks and feel the thrill of absurdity and the sweet shiver of innocent inquisitiveness.

The Best Time to do Everything

The Best Time to Do Everything is really just that-a guide to the best time to do everything in life. From buying shoes to cleaning a murder scene, each entry is built around the well-informed advice of an expert in that particular field: Donald Trump on the best time to haggle, Johnny Ramone on the best time to learn to play guitar, Bill Maher on the best time for a political conversation, the Car Talk guys on the best time to repair your car. Not all of the advice comes from celebrities, but all of it does come from people who know their stuff. Incredibly useful (best time to buy life insurance, best time to look for a job, best time to purge and organize), entertaining (best time to start a high-fashion modeling career, best time to approach a celebrity, best time to cheat on your diet), and outrageous (best time to get punched in the face, best time for a coup, best time to have sex with 209 strangers), The Best Time to Do Everything is educational, practical, and wholly addictive. Michael Kaplan is a journalist based in Brooklyn, NY, and his writing has appeared in Wired, Details, Spin, Playboy, and SmartMoney. He is the author of the nonfiction book Buried Mistakes and the gambling columnist for Cigar Aficionado.

CBIP is the complete reference and buying guide to English-language Canadian books currently in print; consequently, the Author and Title Index, Subject Index and microfiche editions are indispensable to the book profession. With submissions from both small and large publishers, CBIP provides access to titles not listed anywhere else. Containing more than 48,000 titles, of which approximately 4,000 have a 2001 imprint, the Author and Title Index is extensively cross-referenced. The Subject Index lists the titles under 800 different subject categories. Both books offer the most complete directory of Canadian publishers available, listing the names and ISBN prefixes, as well as the street, e-mail and web addresses of more than 4,850 houses. The quarterly microfiche service provides updated information in April, July and October. CBIP is constantly referred to by order librarians, booksellers, researchers, and all those involved in book acquisition. In addition, CBIP is an invaluable record of the vast wealth of publishing and writing activity in the scientific, literary, academic and arts communities across Canada. A quarterly subscription service including the annual Author and Title Index (March 2001) plus quarterly microfiche updates (April, July, and October 2001) is also available.
