    High in calories and cholesterol, animal fats and proteins too often leave you hungry and lead to overeating and weight gain. They are often the root causes of a host of avoidable health problems—from indigestion, ulcers, and constipation to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. On the other hand, complex carbohydrates like whole grains, legumes, tubers, and other starches provide your body with essential proteins and nutrients that satisfy the appetite while simultaneously fighting illness. But Americans eat far too few calories from carbohydrates—only about forty percent, according to Dr. John McDougall, internationally renowned expert on nutrition and health, featured on the documentary Forks Over Knives.In this book, McDougall takes on the propaganda machines pushing dangerous, high-fat fad diets and cuts through the smoke and mirrors of the diet industry. He offers a clear, proven guide to what we should and shouldn't eat to prevent disease, slow the aging process, improve our physical fitness, be kind to the environment, and be our most attractive selves. Featuring mouth-watering, easy-to-follow recipes, The Healthiest Diet on the Planet will help you look great, feel better, and forever change the way you think about health and nutrition.

    Peter C. Smith presents us here with the second release in his visually splendid Cruise Ships series. Whilst his first book concerned itself with the large-scale ships currently cruising through our seas (those weighing 40,000 GT and more) this volume focusses on the other end of the market; the ships that weigh in at less than 40,000 GT, but which are often much more stylish and aesthetically pleasing than their larger-scale counterparts. The elegant interiors and luxurious features on display in today's vast fleet of cruise liners remain unrecorded in all but holiday brochures. This book carries on in the tradition of Peter's last release, giving a complete overview of the best of these ships, the cream of the crop, so to speak.Each colour profile includes external and interior views of the featured ship. Details of the design, building and service history of each vessel are provided with vital statistics of the ship and its facilities.This is a book of reference for maritime enthusiasts, would-be holiday cruisers and those who have been passengers. It serves as an impressive visual tribute to the best of the smaller scale fleet currently cruising globally.As seen in the Bedford Times & Citizen.

    Discover the history behind more than 250 dolls, with photos, fabric panels, and ephemera that bring America’s past to life.   Since the day a simple rag doll was carried off the Mayflower, dolls have captured our hearts, and thrifty Americans have always made dolls for their children. As the centuries progressed, early homemade dolls with painted faces gave way to commercial cut-and-sew versions. Then advertisers jumped in with dolls printed on flour sacks and fabric panels—which became precious possessions of little girls during the dark days of the Great Depression and World War II.   In this book, you’ll find history and photographs of more than 250 dolls, fabric panels, and doll ephemera, many rarely seen items, careful collected and documented by historian Gloria Nixon.

    More than 300 patterns of American pressed glass are documented, described, and illustrated in this comprehensive reference guide for collectors. In this informative and fully illustrated guide, Bob H. Batty—a noted collector of pressed glass—covers more than three hundred glass patterns. Two hundred of which are identified and illustrated for the first time for the first time. Artist John Hendricks’ drawings depict the design and character of the various patterns and in many cases highlight special design and detail of notable patterns.  All of the works shown are from Batty’s personal collection, which numbers more than 2,700 pieces representing some 1,900 patterns. Batty, who has pursued his glass collecting with scholarly attention to historical accuracy and detail, has named many of the previously uncatalogued patterns after cities and landmarks throughout his native South.  A number of foreign patterns are also included, with precise measurements given for every piece depicted.
