Format: Books
Summary "Based on the practically perfect Nordic Diet, this gimmick-free and scientifically proven approach to eating will help you keep unwanted pounds off for good. Powerhouse experts Arne Astrup, Professor Jennie Brand-Miller, and Christian Bitz know that the Nordic Diet is the "best diet in the world" for getting healthy and staying lean, even into middle age and beyond. As leaders in obesity research, glycemic science, and healthy living, respectively, they've learned that eating a specific ratio of proteins, whole grains, and vegetables and incorporating traditional Nordic ingredients such as rye flour, skyr yogurt, and rapeseed oil into one's diet are the most effective paths to overall health and stable weight. There's complex science at work behind the Nordic Diet, yet it's remarkably simple and delicious to adopt. Readers will be able to see significant improvements in their health and weight--and even prevent the dreaded middle-age spread--without ever having to count a single calorie or eliminate carbs, dairy, and meat. Featuring an in-depth look at peer-reviewed studies that support the diet and more than 60 stunningly photographed recipes, The Nordic Way is the health-forward cookbook that readers need to get and stay healthy for life"-- Provided by publisher. "Based on the practically perfect Nordic Diet, this gimmick-free and scientifically proven approach to eating will help you keep unwanted pounds off for good"-- Provided by publisher.

Title Last day on earth :
Author Puchner, Eric, author.
Edition: First Scribner hardcover edition.
Publication Date(s) 2017
Format: Books
Summary From the award-winning author of Music Through the Floor and Model Home, a riveting and profoundly moving story collection by a writer uncannily in tune with the heartbreak and absurdity of domestic life ( Los Angeles Times ). A boy on the edge of adolescence fears his mother might be a robot; a psychotically depressed woman is entrusted with taking her niece and nephew trick-or-treating; a reluctant dad brings his baby to a coke-fueled party; a teenage boy tries to prevent his mother from putting his estranged father s dogs to sleep. Ranging from a youth arts camp to an aging punk band s reunion tour, from a dystopian future where parents no longer exist to a ferociously independent bookstore, Last Day on Earth revolves around the endlessly complex, frequently surreal system that is family. Eric Puchner, the author hailed as technically gifted and emotionally insightful ( The New York Times Book Review ), and someone who puts the story back in short story ( San Francisco Chronicle Book Review ), delivers a gloriously original, utterly memorable collection that invokes both the comedy and tragedy of our lifelong endeavor to come of age.

Title The home that was our country : a memoir of Syria

New Enterprise feed - Wed, 02/22/2017 - 9:11am
Title The home that was our country :
Author Malek, Alia, 1974- author.
Publication Date(s) 2017
Format: Books
Summary In The Home that Was My Country, Syrian-American journalist Alia Malek chronicles her return to her family home in Damascus and the history of the Jabban apartment building. Here, generations of Christians, Jews, Muslims, and Armenians lived, worked, loved, and suffered in close quarters. In telling the story of her family over the course of the last century, Alia brings to light the triumphs and failures that have led Syria to where it is today. Her book bristles with insights, as Alia weaves acute political analysis into intimate scenes, interlacing the personal and the political with subtlety and grace. After being in and out of Syria growing up, Alia came back to Syria as a journalist at the time of the Arab Spring, striving to understand it as the country was beginning to disintegrate. As days go on, Alia learns how to speak the language that exists in a dictatorship, while privately confronting her own fears about her country's future, and learns how to carry on with everyday life. This intimate portrait of contemporary Syria will shed more light on its history, society, and politics than all of today's war reporting accounts written from the Syrian front. It makes for an eye-opening, highly moving, and beautiful read, and finds the humanity behind the disastrous daily headlines.
