    The "As Above So Below" principle of the Universe and our active participation in the creation of the world around us is finally seared into our noggins in this funny, anecdotal-and much needed addition to the Spiritual Self-Help sector.  
    Deliciously grounded and telling it exactly as it is, this is a truly helpful guide that packs a highly refreshing punch: giving you the nitty-gritty on how, by looking at the Divine Dis-order you've created around you, you can (finally) shift and change that energy in your life.  
    Advocates of old-age practices such as "Feng Shui" and New-Age must-haves like "Affirmations" take note: Masuak's take-mp prisoners irreverance will leave you tossing out your Bagua's and Smiley-faces in favor of a vacuum and a hefty bag- or ever, shockingly, filling up your space with stuff you never even (until now) knew you wanted.  
    Definitely not for the faint-hearted or the easilyoffended, "The SpiritualSlob" is perhaps the most entertaining and straight-forward book of its kind-the perfect antidote to those of us who are tired of flapping our wings so hard to get to heaven.

    “Describ[es] the Type VII and its place in the history of warfare . . . probably the finest book on German submarines of WWII available in print.”—Firetrench   First conceived in the mid–1930s, the Type VII was still in production in the closing stages of the Second World War a decade later. Subject to continuous improvement through six major variants and with around 650 completed, it was built in larger numbers than any other submarine design in history. It formed the backbone of the Kriegsmarine’s campaign against merchant shipping for the whole of the war, and in terms of tonnage sunk was by far the most successful U-boat type.   This encyclopedic work combines a technical description of the type in all its variations with a history of its development and an overview of its most significant operations—especially those convoy battles that were to have a crucial impact on the evolution of the design and its equipment. A particular attraction of the book is the comprehensive visual coverage—photographs of virtually every aspect of design, construction, fittings and shipboard life; highly detailed general arrangement plans and close-up scale drawings; and, with modelmakers in mind, a stunning collection of full-color three-dimensional illustrations of every external feature and variant of the boats.   There have been many books on U-boats reflecting an enduring public interest so any new offering has to be special. With its unique concentration of information and illustrative reference, Type VII is unrivalled.   “A comprehensive history of the Kriegsmarine’s most potent weapon . . . includes detailed modelmakers’ plans together with over 320 photographs.”—Maritime Advisor

    Discover the culinary heritage of South Carolina’s famous port city with this guide to historic restaurants that have come and gone.   Once a sleepy city of taverns and coffeehouses, Charleston evolved into a culinary powerhouse of innovative chefs and restaurateurs. Jessica Surface, founder of Chow Down Charleston Food Tours, celebrates the city’s rich cultural history in Lost Restaurants of Charleston.   The origins of she-crab soup trace back through Everett’s Restaurant. The fine dining of Henry’s evolved from a Prohibition-era speakeasy. Desserts were flambéed from the pulpit of a deconsecrated church at Chapel Market Place, and Robert’s hosted Charleston’s famous singing chef. From blind tigers to James Beard Awards, Surface explores the stories and sites that give Charleston its unique flavor.

For anyone who pretended their flashlight was a lightsaber, stood in line for a movie at midnight, or dreamed that they were abducted by aliens, Luke Skywalker Can't Read is full of answers to questions you haven't thought to ask.
