Before he met Mia, resigned loser Albert Kim was too busy dodging high school sociopaths to imagine having a girlfriend. Much less the adorable ex-girlfriend of alpha jerk Ryan Stackhouse. Yet somehow, by the end of a summer working at an inn together, Al and Mia are “something.” Then September arrives with a thud: Ryan has been diagnosed with cancer and needs Mia at his side. As the school year turns into one giant tribute to Ryan, Al can’t help but notice that Ryan may not be quite who everyone—particularly Mia—thinks he is. Before his heart shatters completely, Al has just a few more things to point out. . . .

“Finally I understand what it is I’ve been laughing at all these years.”—Jimmy Kimmel From the best-selling author of Why Does the World Exist? comes this outrageous, uproarious compendium of absurdity, filth, racy paradox, and gratuitous offensiveness—just the kind of mature philosophical reflection readers have come to expect from the ever-entertaining Jim Holt. Indeed, Stop Me If You’ve Heard This is the first book to trace the evolution of the joke all the way from the standup comics of ancient Athens to the comedy-club Seinfelds of today. After exploring humor’s history in Part One, Holt delves into philosophy in Part Two: Wall Street jokes; jokes about rednecks and atheists, bulimics and politicians; jokes you missed if you didn’t go to a Catholic girls’ school; jokes about logic and existence itself . . . all became fodder for the grand theories of Aristotle, Kant, Freud, and Wittgenstein in this heady mix of the high and low, of the ribald and profound, from America’s most beloved philosophical pundit.

Soupy Sales was a longtime host of an event at Friars Club called “Stop Me If You’ve Heard It” where a group of comics all seated on bar stools attempt to top each other by telling a joke. By the end of the evening it’s not all that clear who actually topped who since the audience is too busy brushing tears away, doubling over in laughter, and praying their bladders remain intact before making a beeline to the bathrooms. Hilarious doesn’t even begin to describe these evenings. This event with Soupy as top banana was as highly anticipated as The Friars’ infamous Roasts, and his comic legacy endures in this book of his favorite jokes. “There is never a dull moment when Soupy is in the room. The Friars are lucky—we just have to turn around and listen to Soupy tell his hilarious jokes. Thanks to this book, though, you’ve got the next best thing—if you can’t join him, read him. The Soup is on and he’s boiling over with laughs.” - Barry Dougherty of The Friars Club

A Playbook for the Greatest Team Sport Ever Played This could be the team’s breakout year. A new coach. A new system. And a couple of impact players that could take the team deep into the playoffs–even the Super Bowl. The potential is there, but will the team come together? Will they bounce back if they lose a couple of early games? Are they tough enough to play through the injuries and still perform at the championship level? Every NFL team that’s serious about winning a title has to answer those questions. And so does every husband-and-wife team that’s serious about a Super Bowl Marriage. Super Bowl Marriage tells the stories of some of the NFL’s most dramatic games, toughest players, and creative coaches–then skillfully links their lessons to life’s greatest team sport--marriage. Test your knowledge of the Super Bowl-era and learn how Bill Walsh, John Elway, Brian Urlacher, and others can help your marriage team win the championship game. From the honeymoon training camp through the fourth quarter final drive of growing old together, you and your spouse need to keep your game day focus. Success in marriage will depend on your ability to give it all for the team, do what the coaches say, and play through the pain. You two can hoist the trophy as winners in a life-long, loving relationship. Finally, a marriage playbook for the intense and exhilarating team sport of being husband and wife! Marriage can be as thrilling, demanding, and complex as any high stakes football game. Its potential for unparalleled satisfaction and joy is matched only by its potential for incredible pain and disillusionment.

You can stand on the sidelines, hoping things work out with your spouse, or rise to the challenge and know the thrill of a Super Bowl Marriage.

From the author of Love Is the Drug, the wickedly funny, pull-no-punches story of Julia, a hip, young writer whose life is thrown completely out of whack when her free-spirited soul mate decides to free himself from her, leaving her reeling. Brilliant young writer Sarahbeth Purcell combines witty melodramatics with her own brand of hard-edged, tough-girl cadences in This Is Not a Love Song, a fantastic new novel filled with characters who are idealistic enough for readers to relate to and just cynical enough to respect. When Julia first met Chase one February day two years ago, she knew something was different. An intelligent, free-spirited artist, Chase was not like the other guys Julia had dated. He was her soul mate. At least for two blissful years. And then, with nothing more than a single note left on a bedside table, he was gone -- following his lifelong search for peace and inspiration on another spontaneous road trip across the country. But this time, he wasn't coming back. Devastated and depressed, Julia turns to her friend Delia, a gorgeous and tortured alcoholic who approaches life with the spirit of a warrior. Through terse phone calls and late-night crying jags, Delia helps Julia navigate her heartbreaking loss. Hilarious and heart wrenching, This Is Not a Love Song is a story about hope, healing, and that endless search for the truest form of affection -- loving yourself.

From National Bestselling author, Leslie Langtry... Coney Bombay isn't your average PhD. While he may be well versed in philosophy, he's also one of the most lethal members of the Bombay Family of assassins. Choosing to travel the world operating carnival rides and spending quite evenings knitting with his pet guinea pig, even in his crazy family, Cy stands out as wild card. But after a series of run-ins with perennial grad student, Veronica Gale, the cool cat is starting to feel a little hot under the collar. In her research, Ronnie Gale has seen a lot. Problem is, she hasn't actually done a lot. The mysterious Cy Bombay seems about to change all of that when a whirlwind adventure takes them from the small-town country fair to the outer reaches of Mongolia, and into a murder mystery with Cy squarely in the center.
