Cocktail Codex: Fundamentals, Formulas,
JAMES BEARD AWARD WINNER • From the authors of the best-selling and genre-defining cocktail book Death & Co, Cocktail Codex is a comprehensive primer on the craft of mixing drinks that employs the authors' unique "root cocktails" approach to give drink-makers of every level the tools to understand, execute, and improvise both classic and original cocktails."There are only six cocktails." So say Alex Day, Nick Fauchald, and David Kaplan, the visionaries behind the seminal craft cocktail bar Death & Co. In Cocktail Codex, these experts reveal for the first time their surprisingly simple approach to mastering cocktails: the "root recipes," six easily identifiable (and memorizable!) templates that encompass all cocktails: the old-fashioned, martini, daiquiri, sidecar, whisky highball, and flip. Once you understand the hows and whys of each "family," you'll understand why some cocktails work and others don't, when to shake and when to stir, what you can omit and what you can substitute when you're missing ingredients, why you like the drinks you do, and what sorts of drinks you should turn to--or invent--if you want to try something new.

Math with Bad Drawings: Illuminating the Ideas That Shape Our Reality
Math with Bad Drawings: Illuminating the Ideas That
A hilarious reeducation in mathematics-full of joy, jokes, and stick figures-that sheds light on the countless practical and wonderful ways that math structures and shapes our world. In Math With Bad Drawings, Ben Orlin reveals to us what math actually is; its myriad uses, its strange symbols, and the wild leaps of logic and faith that define the usually impenetrable work of the mathematician. Truth and knowledge come in multiple forms: colorful drawings, encouraging jokes, and the stories and insights of an empathetic teacher who believes that math should belong to everyone. Orlin shows us how to think like a mathematician by teaching us a brand-new game of tic-tac-toe, how to understand an economic crises by rolling a pair of dice, and the mathematical headache that ensues when attempting to build a spherical Death Star. Every discussion in the book is illustrated with Orlin's trademark "bad drawings," which convey his message and insights with perfect pitch and clarity. With 24 chapters covering topics from the electoral college to human genetics to the reasons not to trust statistics, Math with Bad Drawings is a life-changing book for the math-estranged and math-enamored alike.

You Cannot Put New Wine Into Old Bottles: UNDERSTANDING THE CHRISTIAN WAY TO GIVE
You Cannot Put New Wine Into Old Bottles:
Most Christians believe that they should tithe. But the truth is, not one Christian in the New Testament tithe. Think about it. Can you name one Christian with scripture reference that tithe? Can you name one Apostle that wrote an epistle instructing a church or a Christian to tithe? Paul, Peter, James, John? Not one. Why? Because there is another Law of Giving that Christians are commanded to obey. Remember Ananias and Sapphira in the book of Acts? They died suddenly because they disobeyed this New Law of Giving even though they gave an offering. And many Christians today are struggling because they are not obeying this New Law of Giving. This book explains the New Law that is found in the New Testament. This book also explains scripturally when Tithing ended. Discover the New Law of Giving and the promises God has for you when you obey it. Remember what I said before. Not one Christian in the New Testament tithe. They obeyed the New Law of Giving and God blessed them. Acts 4:34 states that not one Christian in that church lacked anything. Get this book and discover the New Law of Giving for Christians.

I'm Too Young To Be Seventy: And Other Delusions (Judith Viorst's Decades)
I'm Too Young To Be Seventy: And Other
The beloved author of Forever Fifty and Suddenly Sixty tackles the ins and outs of becoming a septuagenarian with wry good humor. Fans of Viorst’s funny, touching, and wise decades poems will love these verses filled with witty advice and reflections on marriage, milestones, and middle-aged children.Viorst explores, among the many other issues of this stage of life, the state of our sex lives and teeth, how we can stay married though thermostatically incompatible, and the joys of grandparenthood and shopping. Readers will nod with rueful recognition when she asks, “Am I required to think of myself as a basically shallow woman because I feel better when my hair looks good?,” when she presses a few helpful suggestions on her kids because “they may be middle aged, but they’re still my children,” and when she graciously—but not too graciously—selects her husband’s next mate in a poem deliciously subtitled “If I Should Die Before I Wake, Here’s the Wife You Next Should Take.” Though Viorst acknowledges she is definitely not a good sport about the fact that she is mortal, her poems are full of the pleasures of life right now, helping us come to terms with the passage of time, encouraging us to keep trying to fix the world, and inviting us to consider “drinking...
