Summary

Christine Zink has a wealth of information in an easy to read format. 
 
* Need to design a conditioning program for your canine athlete? * Trying to figure out a lameness location? * When to bring back an injured dog to competition? * Looking for guidance in the selection of your next agility partner? 
 
Chris writes this with the busy agility aficionado in mind. Each short chapter stands alone and is intended to be one soundbite on one topic, designed for easy digestion. You can read about a single topic before bed, while you are waiting for the oil to be changed or in the vet's office before your appointment. 
 
The Agility Advantage takes your canine agility partner through a lifetime with you. Subjects range from how dogs are built, to how dogs move, feeding and exercising so they move faster and more accurately, to sharing those later years when dogs don't move as fast as they used to. 
 
Especially appreciated are Dr. Zink's recommended age-range-specific proprioceptive exercises and how to improve your dog's angulation through exercise.

    Witty and enchanting, the second novel from the well-loved actress and Sunday Times bestselling author of Not Quite Nice follows the hilarious exploits of retired expats in the South of France 
     
    Somewhere on the French Riviera, tucked between glitzy Monte Carlo and Cannes' red-carpets, lies the sleepy town of Bellevue-Sur-Mer. Sheltered from the glittering melee, it is home to many an expat – although it 
    hasn't proved as peaceful as expected. Now an enterprising band of retirees has resolved to show it's never too late to start afresh, and open a restaurant. 
     
    Snapping up a local property and throwing themselves into preparations, Theresa, Carol, William and Benjamin's plans are proceeding unnervingly well. But when Theresa encounters a mysterious intruder, she begins to wonder what secrets the building is concealing. 
     
    Meanwhile Sally, an actress who fled the stage to live in quiet anonymity, has decided not to be involved. She's far too busy anyway, shepherding around a gaggle of A-listers including a suave Russian with a super-yacht and a penchant for her company. 
     
    As the razzmatazz of Cannes Film Festival penetrates Bellevue-Sur-Mer, its inhabitants become entangled in a complex pattern of love triangles and conflicting business interests, and something starts to feel distinctly oeuf. Finding themselves knee-deep in suspicion and skulduggery, the restaurateurs realise they can no longer tell who's nasty … and who's nice.

    Let There Be Laughter - A...

    From the host of NPR affiliate’s Forum with Michael Krasny, a compendium of Jewish jokes that packs the punches with hilarious riff after riff and also offers a window into Jewish culture. 
    Michael Krasny has been telling Jewish jokes since his bar mitzvah, and it’s been said that he knows more of them than anyone on the planet. He certainly states his case in this wise, enlightening, and hilarious book that not only collects the best of Jewish humor passed down from generation to generation, but explains the cultural expressions and anxieties behind the laughs. 
    "What’s Jewish Alzheimer’s?" 
    "You forget everything but the grudges." 
    "You must be so proud. Your daughter is the President of the United States!" 
    "Yes. But her brother is a doctor!" 
    "Isn’t Jewish humor masochistic?" 
    "No. And if I hear that one more time I am going to kill myself." 
    With his background as a scholar and public-radio host, Krasny delves deeply into the themes, topics, and form of Jewish humor: chauvinism undercut by irony and self-mockery, the fear of losing cultural identity through assimilation, the importance of vocal inflection in joke-telling, and calls to communal memory, including the use of Yiddish. 
    Borrowing from traditional humor and such Jewish comedy legends as Jackie Mason, Mel Brooks, and Joan Rivers, Larry David, Sarah Silverman, Jerry Seinfeld and Amy Schumer, Let There Be Laughter is an absolute pleasure for the chosen and goyim alike.
