The latest Scandinavian publishing phenomenon is not a Stieg Larsson like thriller; it's a book about chopping, stacking, and burning wood that has sold more than 200,000 copies in Norway and Sweden and has been a fixture on the bestseller lists there for more than a year. Norwegian Wood provides useful advice on the rustic hows and whys of taking care of your heating needs, but it's also a thoughtful attempt to understand man's age-old predilection for stacking wood and passion for open fires. An intriguing window into the exoticism of Scandinavian culture, the book also features enough inherently interesting facts and anecdotes and inspired prose to make it universally appealing. The U.S. edition is a fully updated version of the Norwegian original, and includes an appendix of U.S.-based resources and contacts.

Author: LeAnne Campbell
Publisher: BenBella Books, Inc.
The China Study, with 850,000 copies sold, has been hailed as one of the most important health and nutrition books ever published. It revealed that the traditional Western diet has led to our modern health crisis and the widespread growth of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Based on the most comprehensive nutrition study ever conducted, the book reveals that a plant-based diet leads to optimal health with the power to halt or reverse many diseases. The China Study Cookbook takes these scientific findings and puts them to action. Written by LeAnne Campbell, daughter of The China Study author T. Colin Campbell, PhD, and mother of two hungry teenagers, The China Study Cookbook features delicious, easily prepared plant-based recipes with no added fat and minimal sugar and salt that promote optimal health. From her Breakfast Home-Fry Hash and Fabulous Sweet Potato Enchiladas to No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars and Cheese(less) Cake, all of LeAnneâs recipes follow three important principles: 1. Optimal nutrition is based on eating food rather than nutrient supplements 2. The closer that foods are to their native statesâprepared with minimal cooking, salting, and processingâthe greater the long-term health benefits of eating them 3. It is best to choose locally and organically grown produce whenever possible Filled with helpful tips on substitutions, keeping foods nutrient-rich, and transitioning to a plant-based diet, The China Study Cookbook shows how to transform individual health and the health of the entire family.

In Boccaccio's innovative text, ten young people leave Florence to escape the Black Death of 1348, and organize their collective life in the countryside through the pleasure and discipline of story-telling. David Wallace guides the reader through their one hundred novelle, which explore both new and familiar conflicts from private and public spheres of life with unprecedented subtlety, urgency and humour. He emphasises the relationship between Decameron and the precocious vitality of Florentine culture in Boccaccio's time. He also discusses gender issues and the influence of the text particularly on Chaucer and the novel.

My Secret Italy
Author: Isabella Campagnol, Elisabeth Rainer
What a shame to call this book just a guide! This book, actually, is something more: it's a precious object of desire for all those ladies who are fancying for a getaway week to Italy or packing up ideas for the next Italian holiday. Beautifully and delicately illustrated, this feminine and extraordinary chic guide reveals to the readers the most authentic and exclusive Italy: shops, boutiques, restaurants, bars, museums, events and so many other places - whether they be all-time favorites or well-kept secrets - of the true Italians. And now the American ladies may discover these exquisitely rare and refined experiences for themselves too. The book is an elegant "Grand Tour" of Italy which tells about elegant boutiques, Italian style gardens, fine museums, stunning glimpses, and unforgettable experiences to live at least once in a lifetime in the so called "Bel Paese", including B&B farms and outlets off the map. With a wink at environmentally sustainable tourism, each entry accompanies women to breathtaking experiences -- whether it's a tech-free stop and go in an Umbrian hermitage, or buying a book in a bookshop that has Tiepolo's affrescos on its ceiling, or on an olive oil taste itinerary, or having a "Liberty aperitivo" in romantic Venice...
