Summary

Drawing is all about learning to really see the world around you and to translate it on to paper. In this book, author Vivienne Coleman shows how you can use just a few simple strokes, shapes and shades to draw almost any subject you like, from a piece of fruit to a detailed landscape. Each exercise is broken down into easy steps so that, even if you are new to drawing, you will be amazed at the results you can achieve. As you gain in confidence you can tackle still life objects around the home, then larger outdoor objects and landscapes, and finally living subjects: animals and people. From your first marks on paper to your most ambitious portrait, you will find your journey enjoyable and, above all, rewarding.

    The rules change at 50! The New York Times–bestselling author and former SNL writer offers advice on living this stage of life with your dignity intact.   If you or someone you know has just turned fifty, it’s time to accept that the rules of life have changed, and that fifty is not the new thirty for most of us. Leland Gregory understands the forgetful minds, sagging bodies, and flagging pride of his fellow middle-agers, and in 50 Things Not to Do after 50, he offers helpful—and hilarious—advice for combating the humiliations this stage of life can bring.   In this lighthearted and sometimes painfully on-target book, you’ll learn that what we used to do in our twenties, thirties, and forties should be avoided at all costs from now on. For example, regardless of gender, under no circumstances should you ever . . .  Attempt to wear leather pantsStart a story that involves a lot of names—you’ll forget most of them before the story is overStalk your high school sweetheart on Facebook; the person you had the hots for in 10th grade probably isn’t so hot anymoreGet drunk in Pamplona and decide to run with the bullsVolunteer to be a drug muleSay things like “fo’shizzle,” “whatev,” or “cray-cray”. . . And do we really need to mention thongs, Speedos, or jeggings?  Leland Gregory, the New York Times–bestselling author of Stupid American History and America’s Dumbest Criminals, has been praised by Katie Couric as the “chronicler of Stupid America.”

    A witty volume for anyone who’s ever asked, “Is it wrong that I’m smiling?” The Germans may have come up with the word for it, but schadenfreude—the taking of pleasure in someone else’s misery—is a pretty universal human tendency. This book takes a look at the phenomenon with numerous examples, both historical and more recent, from the worlds of art and entertainment, sports, politics, and more. It also explores the roots of schadenfreude—and its connections to everything from psychology to religion to slapstick comedy. From the author of The Snark Handbook, it’s a smart, funny look at the sometimes not-so-noble side of human nature.
