"Gregg McBride was always determined to make it big--although not quite this literally. by the time he was a young adult, Gregg McBride topped the scales at over 450 pounds and wore a sixty-inch belt. Pretending airline seatbelts fit across his belly, eating out of the trash to cheat on his diets, and working as an overweight stripper are just some of the misadventures Gregg endured as he continually tried to win his battle of the bulge. It was only when Gregg took an inward journey that he was able to free himself from his food addiction and take off more than 250 pounds of excess weight, which he's kept off for over a decade. Alternately hilarious and heartbreaking in its honesty, "Weightless" is a tale of "food gone wrong" that chronicles the before, the during, and the after in a way no other book has, and will move, educate, entertain, and inspire anyone who is ready for change."--back cover.

Bitter : a taste of the world's most dangerous flavor, with recipes

October 22, 2014
McLagan, Jennifer.
Berkeley : Ten Speed Press, [2014]
263 pages : color illustrations ; 25 cm
Born to be bitter -- Liquid bitter -- Pungently bitter -- Subtly bitter -- Surprisingly bitter -- Dark, forbidden, and very bitter.
"The champion of uncelebrated foods including fat, offal, and bones, Jennifer McLagan turns her attention to a fascinating, underappreciated, and trending topic: bitterness. What do coffee, IPA beer, dark chocolate, and radicchio all have in common? They're bitter. In this deep and fascinating exploration of bitter through science, culture, history, and 120 deliciously idiosyncratic recipes, award-winning author Jennifer McLagan makes a case for this misunderstood flavor. Biologically-speaking, the taste of something bitter--unlike sweet, which can indicate a nutrient-rich food, and salty, which indicates the presence of needed minerals--can signify a poison, so an appreciation for bitterness must develop with age and experience. Bitter is a known appetite stimulant and is often just the thing to add dimension and balance to a dish. While some culinary cultures, such as in Italy and parts of Asia, have an inherent appreciation for bitter flavors (think Campari and Chinese bitter melon), little attention has been given to bitterness in North America: we're much more likely to reach for salty or sweet. However, even in North America, bitter is making inroads with increased interest in cocktail bitters, craft beers, and artisanal coffee; and consumption of bitter salad greens and chocolate is growing. In the capable hands of McLagan, bitterness will emerge from the shadows of the culinary underworld and get its deserved place in the spotlight"-- Provided by publisher.

Do zombies dream of undead sheep? : a neuroscientific view of the zombie brain

October 22, 2014
Verstynen, Timothy, 1978- author.
Princeton : Princeton University Press, [2014]
261 pages : illustrations ; 23 cm
Prelude. Sacrifices not made in vain -- Introduction -- Gray's (undead) anatomy -- Do zombies dream of undead sheep? -- The neural correlates of lumbering -- Hungry, angry, and stupid is no way to go through unlife -- There's no crying in the zombie apocalypse! -- Tongue-tied and twisted -- Disengagement deficit of the dead -- Whose undead face is this, anyway? -- How am I not myself? -- Eternal sunshine of the undead mine -- Fighting the zombie apocalypse... with science!
"Even if you've never seen a zombie movie or television show, you could identify an undead ghoul if you saw one. With their endless wandering, lumbering gait, insatiable hunger, antisocial behavior, and apparently memory-less existence, zombies are the walking nightmares of our deepest fears. What do these characteristic behaviors reveal about the inner workings of the zombie mind? Could we diagnose zombism as a neurological condition by studying their behavior? In Do Zombies Dream of Undead Sheep?, neuroscientists and zombie enthusiasts Timothy Verstynen and Bradley Voytek apply their neuro-know-how to dissect the puzzle of what has happened to the zombie brain to make the undead act differently than their human prey. Combining tongue-in-cheek analysis with modern neuroscientific principles, Verstynen and Voytek show how zombism can be understood in terms of current knowledge regarding how the brain works. In each chapter, the authors draw on zombie popular culture and identify a characteristic zombie behavior that can be explained using neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and brain-behavior relationships. Through this exploration they shed light on fundamental neuroscientific questions such as: How does the brain function during sleeping and waking? What neural systems control movement? What is the nature of sensory perception? Walking an ingenious line between seriousness and satire, Do Zombies Dream of Undead Sheep? leverages the popularity of zombie culture in order to give readers a solid foundation in neuroscience."-- Provided by publisher.

The forbidden worlds of Haruki Murakami

October 22, 2014
Strecher, Matthew, author.
Minneapolis : University of Minnesota Press, [2014]
xiv, 275 pages ; 23 cm
" In an "other world" composed of language--it could be a fathomless Martian well, a labyrinthine hotel or forest--a narrative unfolds, and with it the experiences, memories, and dreams that constitute reality for Haruki Murakami's characters and readers alike. Memories and dreams in turn conjure their magical counterparts--people without names or pasts, fantastic animals, half-animals, and talking machines that traverse the dark psychic underworld of this writer's extraordinary fiction. Fervently acclaimed worldwide, Murakami's wildly imaginative work in many ways remains a mystery, its worlds within worlds uncharted territory. Finally in this book readers will find a map to the strange realm that grounds virtually every aspect of Murakami's writing. A journey through the enigmatic and baffling innermost mind, a metaphysical dimension where Murakami's most bizarre scenes and characters lurk, The Forbidden Worlds of Haruki Murakami exposes the psychological and mythological underpinnings of this other world. Matthew Carl Strecher shows how these considerations color Murakami's depictions of the individual and collective soul, which constantly shift between the tangible and intangible but in this literary landscape are undeniably real. Through these otherworldly depths The Forbidden Worlds of Haruki Murakami also charts the writer's vivid "inner world," whether unconscious or underworld (what some Japanese critics call achiragawa, or "over there"), and its connectivity to language. Strecher covers all of Murakami's work--including his efforts as a literary journalist--and concludes with the first full-length close reading of the writer's newest novel, Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage.

Creatures of the deep : in search of the sea's monsters and the world they live in

October 22, 2014
Hoyt, Erich, author.
Richmond Hill, Ontario : Firefly Books Ltd., 2014.
288 pages : illustrations (chiefly color), color map ; 29 cm
In this updated and expanded edition of Creatures of the Deep, award winning nature and science writer Erich Hoyt gives readers a glimpse of the amazing variety of creatures found in the deepest parts of the ocean. Weaving together details from the latest scientific research about sharks, giant squid, dragonfish, huge tube worms, clams and tiny microbes of the deep sea vents, Hoyt embarks on a magical journey roaming across the abyssal plains and descending into deep sea trenches more than 20,000 feet down. Hoyt unravels the complex predator-prey relationships, from "killer" copepods to battles between giant squid and sperm whales, presenting compelling portraits of animals that are superbly adapted denizens of a dark high pressure world. There are life forms, independent of sunlight and photosynthesis, which flourish around the hot, sulfurous deep sea vents in the magnificent rift valley of the mid ocean ridge, the world's longest mountain range. Surviving in conditions that appear to be close to the very soup of primordial Earth, these microbes have become the basis for the latest research into Earth's origins. Fully illustrated with fantastic underwater imagery.
