What do you call 600 lawyers at the bottom of the sea? Marc Galanter calls it an opportunity to investigate the meanings of a rich and time-honored genre of American humor: lawyer jokes. Lowering the Bar analyzes hundreds of jokes from Mark Twain classics to contemporary anecdotes about Dan Quayle, Johnnie Cochran, and Kenneth Starr. Drawing on representations of law and lawyers in the mass media, political discourse, and public opinion surveys, Galanter finds that the increasing reliance on law has coexisted uneasily with anxiety about the “legalization” of society. Informative and always entertaining, his book explores the tensions between Americans’ deep-seated belief in the law and their ambivalence about lawyers.

Delivering a tactical plan, complete with both downloadable and online support, Chris McIntyre rescues small business owners trapped in potholes littering the road to success, and provides a helping hand to freedom. Uniquely prepared to create and deliver their product or service, small business owners are far less equipped to effectively lead, let alone develop, their team. Their internal systems and processes are often informal and incomplete, limiting their freedom and their business growth. McIntyre provides a step-by-step, customizable solution to overcome this roadblock. Coached by McIntyre, leaders learn to craft the right team, create a consistent core message that enables the brand, and then, connect the two. Business owners are given a rock-solid process for attracting and keeping superstars, and dropping nightmares. They learn how to get their core message out of their head and into the heads of their superstar team. Supported by McIntyre, organizational leaders will define their core mission, and develop a distinct, systematic formula that enables their team to accomplish it. Leaders are aided with a thorough checklist to guide implementation, giving them everything they need for consistent performance from their team and ongoing success.

This witty and engaging collection of essays from the charismatic star of Southern Charm offers rip-roaring stories and tongue-in-cheek advice on everything from relationships to travel to “woke” culture and beyond. Perfect for fans of authors as wide-ranging as Andy Cohen to Tucker Max. Shep Rose, star of Southern Charm and owner of Shep Gear, shares this irreverent and relatable collection of lessons and anecdotes about living an untamed, genuine life, raising hell yet having fun along the way. With his signature endearingly snarky voice, he explores topics as varied as the trials and tribulations of being a late bloomer, the ins and outs of ghosting, how to talk about politics without resorting to blows, the dos and don’ts of getting drunk abroad, and much more. Shep has caroused around the world, from Hong Kong to Dubai to the mean streets of Charleston, and the fact that he hasn’t been the subject of a Locked Up Abroad episode defies all logic. Average Expectations is a chronicle of one lucky SOB and the exploits that got him where he is today, with advice and stories that will help unleash your inner rabble-rouser, inspire you to live an untamed life, and remind you that at the end of the day, life is all about having fun, having a laugh, and, most important of all, being in on the joke.
