Almost everyone swears, or worries about not swearing, from the two year-old who has just discovered the power of potty mouth to the grandma who wonders why every other word she hears is obscene. Whether they express anger or exhilaration, are meant to insult or to commend, swear words perform a crucial role in language. But swearing is also a uniquely well-suited lens through which to look at history, offering a fascinating record of what people care about on the deepest levels of a culture--what's divine, what's terrifying, and what's taboo. Holy Sh*t tells the story of two kinds of swearing--obscenities and oaths--from ancient Rome and the Bible to today. With humor and insight, Melissa Mohr takes readers on a journey to discover how "swearing" has come to include both testifying with your hand on the Bible and calling someone a *#$&!* when they cut you off on the highway. She explores obscenities in ancient Rome--which were remarkably similar to our own--and unearths the history of religious oaths in the Middle Ages, when swearing (or not swearing) an oath was often a matter of life and death. Holy Sh*t also explains the advancement of civility and corresponding censorship of language in the 18th century, considers the rise of racial slurs after World War II, examines the physiological effects of swearing (increased heart rate and greater pain tolerance), and answers a question that preoccupies the FCC, the US Senate, and anyone who has recently overheard little kids at a playground: are we swearing more now than people did in the past? A gem of lexicography and cultural history, Holy Sh*t is a serious exploration of obscenity--and it also just might expand your repertoire of words to choose from the next time you shut your finger in the car door.

In his insightful new book, Holy Shit: Managing Manure to Save Mankind, contrary farmer Gene Logsdon provides the inside story of manure-our greatest, yet most misunderstood, natural resource. He begins by lamenting a modern society that not only throws away both animal and human manure-worth billions of dollars in fertilizer value-but that spends a staggering amount of money to do so. This wastefulness makes even less sense as the supply of mined or chemically synthesized fertilizers dwindles and their cost skyrockets. In fact, he argues, if we do not learn how to turn our manures into fertilizer to keep food production in line with increasing population, our civilization, like so many that went before it, will inevitably decline. With his trademark humor, his years of experience writing about both farming and waste management, and his uncanny eye for the small but important details, Logsdon artfully describes how to manage farm manure, pet manure and human manure to make fertilizer and humus. He covers the field, so to speak, discussing topics like: How to select the right pitchfork for the job and use it correctly How to operate a small manure spreader How to build a barn manure pack with farm animal manure How to compost cat and dog waste How to recycle toilet water for irrigation purposes, and How to get rid ourselves of our irrational paranoia about feces and urine. Gene Logsdon does not mince words. This fresh, fascinating and entertaining look at an earthy, but absolutely crucial subject, is a small gem and is destined to become a classic of our agricultural literature.

Our Story This book was born when three friends had the same realization at the same time on the same night. The realization was hysterically simple. They realized that they were "alive." And then they realized, "holy shit," that's pretty amazing. Now we, the authors, can imagine you, the reader, sitting there reading that last sentence and silently mouthing "Duh" to yourself. But before you mouth anything, we'd just ask that you take a second and query yourself the following: How much of your day is spent living in the base-line awareness that your very existence is a friggin' miracle? The reason I ask is because if I had to wager, I'd say it's not nearly as much as the time you spent wishing your job was more fulfilling, that your parents were less annoying, that your partner was nicer, or that your kids were easier, the weather was better, your bank account was fatter, that you were skinnier, the list goes on and on....If you get depressed thinking about that, take heart. You're not alone. Most of us do this. We humans go through life with this sort of low-level hum of dissatisfaction. It's a big part of what makes us, us. In fact, it's this drive to change our circumstances, to improve, to hack our conditions, that has helped us grow from small bands of hunter gatherers to larger agricultural societies to the enormous, interdependent information-based mega-cities of today. Yet all this thinking and emoting and striving and doing and struggling has come at a terrible cost. We've lost the ability to do one very essential thing, which is honor the "holy-shit- ness" of our of daily existence. Why? Perhaps because this precious gift called consciousness is so seamless and glitch-free that for most of our lives we feel like it's not enough. It's almost too vanilla. So what do we do? We pile thoughts, memories, resentments, hopes, expectations over it like toppings at an ice cream sundae bar, until the bare miraculous fact of this "I am-ness" is completely covered. It is our hope that this book can be a fun, thought-provoking, sense-stimulating way to strip off all the crap we put on our perfect scoops of consciousness ice-cream so that we can all live in the joyous reality of the one thing we should never, ever forget. Holy Shit, We're Alive.

Writer Dauson Lovi tackles the hard issues regarding Christianity in Holy Shit: A Brief Look at Christianity's Problem. This no-nonsense, no holds barred narration is a collection of thoughts, points and counterpoints to illustrate the problems facing Christianity ideology and how those views are distorted by the very book leaders and believers hold sacred. Lovi delves into the fallacies contained in the scriptures and brings to light the truth about following the Golden Rule and the misconstrued metaphors that are scattered throughout its teachings. Lovi's controversial book takes a realistic view of how the writings of the Bible are filled with mythology blended with historical events containing a tainted religious undertone. Three billion people believe and follow the truth contained in the Bible-do you want to explore another truth? Do you want common sense research that explicitly shows such teachings as intolerance, the creation of evil, and using that same evil to gain adulation? You've come to the right place! Not for the faint of heart, Holy Shit: A Brief Look at Christianity's Problem bravely presents the other side of Christianity in a brand new light.
