SKINNY LEGS AND ALL: An Arab and a Jew open a restaurant together across the street from the United Nations.... It sounds like the beginning of an ethnic joke, but it's the axis around which spins this gutsy, fun-loving, and alarmingly provocative novel, in which a bean can philosophizes, a dessert spoon mystifies, a young waitress takes on the New York art world, and a rowdy redneck welder discovers the lost god of Palestine--while the illusions that obscure humanity's view of the true universe fall away, one by one, like Salome's veils. Skinny Legs and All deals with today's most sensitive issues: race, politics, marriage, art, religion, money, and lust. It weaves lyrically through what some call the "end days" of our planet. Refusing to avert its gaze from the horrors of the apocalypse, it also refuses to let the alleged end of the world spoil its mood. And its mood is defiantly upbeat. In the gloriously inventive Tom Robbins style, here are characters, phrases, stories, and ideas that dance together on the page, wild and sexy, like Salome herself. Or was it Jezebel?

Even if Nico the Mosquito didn't remind Spencer every day at school that he's a big, fat loser, there's no way Spencer could forget. For starters, there's that tackle he missed in the big game on Saturday. His stupid leg can't grow muscle, and when you run like a three-legged dog, it's hard to make even the easiest tackle. He's the worst athlete ever! It's fitting that his team of sled dogs is made up of a bunch of misfits like him. Why did he have to be born this way?Life is hard and sometimes disappointing for twelve-year-old Spencer, but when he and his team of misfit sled dogs get lost in a blizzard during their first 100-mile race through some of the wildest backcountry on earth, he discovers that it's grit more than talent that makes a champion. Having courage far surpasses being popular any day. Maybe Spencer's disability isn't destined to hold him back after all!

Every woman has a pair of trophy “skinny” jeans she has banished to the back of her closet: a reminder of days past, when she felt young, sexy, and fit. Well, with Amy Cotta’s help, readers will tone up, slim down, and stay motivated until they can shimmy back into those sexy skinny jeans for good! Diet, exercise, and attitude are all readers need to succeed during this 6-week program. Cotta’s eating plan trims fast-burning carbohydrates for the first 3 weeks, igniting weight loss, then reintroduces and manages those carbs for the second half of the plan. Her graduated fitness program offers three styles of cardio and strength-training exercises that get progressively more challenging to keep readers from getting bored or hitting a plateau while sculpting those curves. Both plans are simple to follow at home—no gym, fancy equipment, or expensive food deliveries required—and there are calendars, food logs, and meal plans to help readers stay upbeat and organized. Packed with dynamic, down-to-earth strategies, Six Weeks to Skinny Jeans inspires women to take control of their lifestyle and feel younger, sexier, and fitter than ever before.

Have you ever wondered, "How can I inherently do good while looking good?" Wear No Evil has the answer, and is the timely handbook for navigating both fashion and ethics. It is the style guide with sustainability built in that we've all been waiting for. As a consumer, you regain your power with every purchase to support the causes and conditions you already advocate in other areas of your life (such as local or organic food), while upholding your sense of self through the stylish pieces you use to create your wardrobe. Featuring the Integrity Index (a simplified way of identifying the ethics behind any piece of fashion) and an easy to use rating system, you'll learn to shop anywhere while building your personal style and supporting your values- all without sacrifice. Fashion is the last frontier in the shift towards conscious living. Wear No Evil provides a roadmap founded in research and experience, coupled with real life style and everyday inspiration. Part 1 presents the hard-hitting facts on why the fashion industry and our shopping habits need a reboot. Part 2 moves you into a closet-cleansing exercise to assess your current wardrobe for eco-friendliness and how to shop green. Part 3 showcases eco-fashion makeovers and a directory of natural beauty recommendations for face, body, hair, nails, and makeup. Style and sustainability are not mutually exclusive. They can live in harmony. It's time to restart the conversation around fashion—how it is produced, consumed, and discarded—to fit with the world we live in today. Pretty simple, right? It will be, once you've read this book. Wear No Evil gives new meaning—and the best answers—to an age-old question: “What should I wear today?”
