    Publisher:   Sourcebooks (2014, Apr 8th).
    Pages:   

    It's Dinnertime. Do You Know Where Your Sugar is Coming From? Most likely everywhere. Sure, it's in ice cream and cookies, but what scared Eve O. Schaub was the secret world of sugar--hidden in bacon, crackers, salad dressing, pasta sauce, chicken broth, and baby food. With her eyes open by the work of obesity expert Dr. Robert Lustig and others, Eve challenged her husband and two school-age daughters to join her on a quest to eat no added sugar for an entire year. Along the way, Eve uncovered the real costs of our sugar-heavy American diet--including diabetes, obesity, and increased incidences of health problems such as heart disease and cancer. The stories, tips, and recipes she shares throw fresh light on questionable nutritional advice we've been following for years and show that it is possible to eat at restaurants and go grocery shopping--with less and even no added sugar. more

    Pages:   

    From Barnes & NobleWalter Kirn is a talented novelist (both his Up in the Air and Thumbsucker were made into major motion pictures), but he could have never dreamed up a scenario as strange as the story of his encounters with the man who called himself Clark Rockefeller. What began in 1998 as an inquiry from a Montana humane society became a ten-year friendship that ended with revelations and trials about multiple fake identities, a kidnapping, perhaps multiple murders, and one homicide conviction. In Blood Will Out, he examines into how conmen make us complicit in our deception even as he delves into the personalities of this master impostor. The New York Times Book Review - Nina Burleigh In this smart, real-life psychological thriller, the fake Rockefeller is a zombie Gatsby and Kirn the post-apocalyptic Fitzgerald, chronicling upper-crust America in free fall. more
