In ´´Stitch Magic,´´ fashion and textile expert Alison Reid teaches sewers how to manipulate and sculpt fabric by using such techniques as folding, cutting, pleating, tucking, gathering, and stitching, creating entirely new surfaces and textures in the process. The resulting fabrics, which look sophisticated and complex but are actually relatively simple and inexpensive to produce, can be used for entire textiles, such as cushions or blinds, or to create fashion accessories or embellishments. ´´ Stitch Magic´´ serves as both a technical reference guide, which the sewer can consult time and again, as well as an inspiring project book. Among the beautiful, modern projects included are curtains and cushions, a throw, shawl, cape, necklace, and bag. Detailed illustrations throughout make all of the instructions easy to follow.

The postwar boom is ripe with opportunities for talented girls with ambition, and Lucia becomes an apprentice to an up-and-coming designer at chic B. Altman´s department store on Fifth Avenue. Engaged to her childhood sweetheart, the steadfast Dante DeMartino, Lucia is torn when she meets a handsome stranger who promises a life of uptown luxury that career girls like her only read about in the society pages. Forced to choose between duty to her family and her own dreams, Lucia finds herself in the midst of a sizzling scandal in which secrets are revealed, her beloved career is jeopardized, and the Sartoris´ honor is tested.Lucia is surrounded by richly drawn New York characters, including her best friend, the quick-witted fashion protigi Ruth Kaspian; their boss, Delmarr, B. Altman´s head designer and glamorous man-about-town; her devoted brothers, Roberto, Orlando, Angelo, and Exodus, self-appointed protectors of the jewel of the family; and her doting father, Antonio. Filled with the warmth and humor that have earned Adriana Trigiani hundreds of thousands of devoted readers with her Big Stone Gap trilogy, Lucia, Lucia also bursts with a New York sensibility that shows the depth and range of this beloved author. As richly detailed as the couture garments Lucia sews, as emotional as the bonds in her big Italian family, it is the story of one woman who believes that in a world brimming with so much promise, she can, and should be able to, have it all. 1.

From 1965 to 1995, the Grateful Dead flourished as one of the most beloved, unusual, and accomplished musical entities to ever grace American culture. The creative synchronicity among Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, and Ron ´´Pigpen´´ McKernan exploded out of the early 60s roots and folk scene, providing the soundtrack for the Dionysian revels of the counterculture. Dennis McNally, the band´s historian and publicist for more than 20 years, takes listeners back through the Dead´s history in A Long Strange Trip. McNally not only chronicles their experiences in a fascinatingly detailed fashion, but veers off into side trips on the band´s intricate stage setup, or the magic of the Grateful Dead concert experience. McNally carries the Dead´s saga through the 70s and into the more recent years of constant touring and incessant musical exploration. Written with the same zeal and spirit that the Grateful Dead brought to its music, the book takes listeners on a personal tour through the band´s inner circle, highlighting its frenetic and very human faces. A Long Strange Trip is not only a wide-ranging cultural history, it is a definitive musical biography. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Runnette.

Critical-thinking skills are essential for life in the 21st century. In this follow-up to his introductory guide Think, and continuing his trademark of hopeful skepticism, Guy Harrison demonstrates in a detailed fashion how to sort through bad ideas, unfounded claims, and bogus information to drill down to the most salient facts. By explaining how the human brain works and outing its most irrational processes, this book provides the thinking tools that will help you make better decisions, ask the right questions (at the right time), know what to look for when evaluating information, and understand how your own brain subconsciously clouds your judgment. Think you´re too smart to be easily misled? Harrison summarizes scientific research showing how easily even intelligent and well-educated people can be fooled. We all suffer from cognitive biases, embellished memories, and the tendency to kowtow to authority figures or be duped by dubious ´´truths´´ packaged in appealing stories. And as primates we are naturally status seekers, so we are prone to irrational beliefs that seem to enhance our senses of belonging and ranking. Emotional impulses and stress also all too often lead us into traps of misperception and bad judgment. Understanding what science has discovered about the brain makes you better equipped to cope with its built-in pitfalls. Good Thinking - the book and the practice - makes clear that with knowledge and the right thinking skills, anyone can lead a safer, wiser, more efficient, and productive life. 1. Language: English.
