Summary

What do dogs value? Why do they get so excited by their daily walks? And why may dogs of different breeds have different needs? Veterinarian, professor of animal behavior, and dog lover Dr. Paul McGreevy answers these questions and many more. He takes readers on a walk in the paws of man’s best friend to illuminate the challenges and confusions faced by dogs in the modern world.Filled with humor, easy-to-follow instructions, and memorable characters (including “Uncle Wolf” and “Feral Cheryl”), A Modern Dog’s Life will help you better understand your dog with:Insights from recent studies on how dogs see, smell, and experience the worldExplanations of canine behavior, with over 40 photos of dogs in actionTips on everything from petting dogs to calming them at the vet’sUser-friendly training techniques that build skills gradually and keep dogs motivatedDr. McGreevy offers an exciting new approach to training a dog: By acting as a “life coach”—rather than an “alpha dog” or “parent”—and by reimagining “training” as a fun opportunity for you and your dog to grow closer and learn new skills, you can greatly improve your dog’s quality of life—and teach good behavior at the same time.

    Marriage and kids are no joke.He may not win Father of the Year, but Clint Edwards has won the hearts of thousands — including the New York Times, Scary Mommy, and Good Morning America — thanks to his candor and irreverence when it comes to raising kids, being married, and learning from his mistakes.Clint has three children: Tristan (the know it all), Norah (the snarky princess), and Aspen (the worst roommate ever). He describes parenting as "a million different gears turning in a million different directions, all of them covered in sour milk." In this inspiring and unconventional audiobook of essays, he sheds light on the darker yet hilarious side of domestic life.Owning up to all his mishaps and dumbassery, Edwards shares essays on just about every topic fellow spouses and parents can appreciate, including: stupid things he's said to his pregnant wife, the trauma of taking a toddler shopping, revelations on buying a minivan, and the struggle to not fight the nosy neighbor (who is five years old).Clint's funny, heartwarming account of the terrifying yet completely rewarding life of a parent is a breath of fresh air. Each essay in I'm Sorry...Love, Your Husband will have you thinking finally, someone gets it.

    “Tupelo Honey Café offers not only offers tastes from its distinctive kitchen, but the full, delicious flavor of Asheville’s fresh, artisanal, food scene.” (Ronni Lundy, author of Shuck Beans, Stack Cakes and Honest Fried Chicken and Butter Beans to Blackberries) 
     
    Experiencing the food at the award-winning Tupelo Honey Cafe is an important part to understanding the heart of Asheville, NC.  As an early pioneer in the farm-to-fork movement, chef Brian Sonoskus has been creating delicious dishes at the Tupelo Honey Cafe in downtown Asheville, North Carolina, since it first opened in 2000. And from then on, Tupelo's food has been consistently fresh, made from scratch, sassy, and scrumptious. 
     
    Heralding in its own unique style of cuisine representative of the New South, the Tupelo Honey Cafe salutes the love of Southern traditions at the table, but like the people of Asheville, marches to its own drum. The result is a cookbook collection of more than 125 innovative riffs on Southern favorites, illustrated with four-color photographs of the food, restaurant, locals, farmers' markets, and farms, in addition to black-and-white archival photography of Asheville. At Tupelo, grits become Goat Cheese Grits, fried chicken becomes Nutty Fried Chicken with Mashed Sweet Potatoes, and poached eggs become Eggs with Homemade Crab Cakes and Lemon Hollandaise Sauce. 
     
    Capturing the independent and creative spirit of Asheville, Tupelo has garnered praise from the New York Times, Southern Living, and the Food Network, just to name a few. 
     
    “Tupelo Honey Café’s recipes will appeal to the home cook because they’re oh-so-approachable. How many restaurant cookbooks can make that claim? Precious few!” –Jean Anderson, A Love Affair with Southern Cooking

    Etiquette Guide to Japan - Know...

    Minding your manners is an acquired skill, but what serves you well elsewhere could trip you up in Japan. Save yourself possible embarrassment with Etiquette Guide to Japan. An inside look at Japanese social graces, it answers all the questions of the thoughtful traveler. Extensive, specific information on Japanese business etiquette assists listeners traveling to Japan for business.Although often overshadowed by a modern facade, long-standing traditional aspects of Japan's culture still influence the country and almost everyone in it. Concrete evidence of this traditional culture can be seen everywhere — in the ancient arts and crafts that are still important parts of everyday life, in the many shrines and temples that dot the nation, and in the modern comeback of traditional fashions such as kimono and yakata robes.To many Western visitors, however, the most obvious example of this traditional culture's strength is the unique etiquette of the Japanese. Like many nations, Japan has experienced vast political, social, and economic change over the past century. But enough of Japan's traditional etiquette remains to set the Japanese apart socially and psychologically and to make success in socializing and doing business with them a special challenge for Westerners.
