    The “uplifting, humble, and moving” true story of a troubled, East London artist and a twice-abandoned Staffordshire bull terrier who rescue each other (ForeWord Magazine).   John Dolan grew up rough on the estates of east London. His early life was marked by neglect and abuse, and his childhood gift for drawing was stamped out by the tough realities outside his front door. A life of substance abuse and petty crime eventually landed him in prison. And when he was released, he found himself on the streets, surviving day-by-day, living hand-to-mouth.   It wasn’t until he met George, a homeless Staffy puppy, that his life changed for the better. To begin with, George was a handful: he had been abused himself and was scared of human contact. Soon, John and George became inseparable. It was then that John decided to pick up his long-forgotten gift for drawing, sitting on the sidewalk for hours at a time, sketching pictures of George that he would sell to passers-by.   “With dry wit and a lack of sentimentality,” John recounts how he found his life’s calling with his best friend by his side in this “disarmingly modest yet profound tale of redemption” (Kirkus Reviews).

    Marijuana is more widely available and accepted than ever before, with more people coming to the plant every day for a range of reasons. From the experts at High Times magazine—the world’s most trusted name when it comes to getting stoned—here is an authoritative, accessible guide to marijuana, its uses, and culture. This illustrated handbook offers clear and friendly primers on subjects such as what pot is and how it works, tips on getting high and managing the experience, cooking with pot, and FAQs as well as an “I’m High, Now What?” selection of activities and amusements for the freshly baked. Part manifesto, part party invitation, Marijuana for Everybody! is an informative and entertaining read for the uninitiated and practiced users alike. 
     
    “The rapidly advancing world of weed gets broken down into easy chunks on topics like ‘cannabis chemistry,’ ‘how to: roll the classic cone,’ and ‘where do bongs come from?’ . . . The list-lovers will dig: 8 items to look for on the label when you buy legal weed; 6 things to do if you think you’re too high; 7 things to keep in mind when buying edibles; and 10 common marijuana strains and their characteristics.” —Smell the Truth 
     
    “Well-written, carefully researched and incredibly thorough . . . If you have even a passing interest in marijuana, start clearing a space between your grinder and bong for this book on your coffee table.” —Willamette Week
