One day, the last cigarette on earth will be smoked. One final puff will be sent heaven-bound, leaving an evanescent smoke ring - and the wise of the world will rejoice. That doesn't mean there is no room to linger upon the varied and robust culture that arose from the smoking of cigarettes. This November, Skyhorse Publishing will release The Cigarette Book: The History and Culture of Smoking by Chris Harrald and Fletcher Watkins. The book is an incisive and entertaining look at the business of advertising, the statesman and artists who made the cigarette their signature accessories, and the music and movies that glorified the act of smoking. From Mad Men to smoking cartoon characters, smoking has been a tremendous part of our history and culture, and this book documents it all. Whether you have quit, are trying to quit, or have yet to quit, this look back on the way smoking and cigarettes have shaped entertainment and society is the perfect gift to delight and spark conversation thisRead More »from The Cigarette Book, Missing Lucille, The WIshing Tree, and Ellis Jones
Lindsay Lohan. George Michael. Michael Jackson. Anna Nicole Smith. More and more high profile names have seemingly fallen victim to the new American epidemic: prescription drug abuse. A psychiatrist specializing in psychopharmacology and an assistant professor of psychiatry at NYU School of Medicine, Julie Holland, M.D., author of the national bestseller WEEKENDS AT BELLEVUE: Nine Years on the Night Shift at the Psych ER (A Bantam Books trade paperback; October 26, 2010; $16.00), grasps the depth of the problem like few can, often giving her expert testimony on national media such as the Today show, Good Morning America and CNN. Dr. Holland is not surprised by the recent barrage of drug related incidents, having spent her entire adult life insatiably educating herself on the subject of insanity and its treatment. With WEEKENDS AT BELLEVUE, she provides an unvarnished look at life in the psych ER, recounting stories from her vast case files that are alternately terrifying, tragicallyRead More »from Julie Holland, M.D, & Kathleen O'Bannon, C.N.C.,

Author Michael Pranger knows about obesity from the inside. He was a fat kid and had an obese adolescence that lasted into his 30s; he topped out at 365 pounds in 1991. The story of his transformation, to 20 years of relative happiness and serenity in a consistently normal-sized body, is enough to warrant your interest: It's a good read, with lots of humor, precious little victim-speak, and a happy ending.But Prager puts a sharp point on his tale: He lost hundreds of pounds in his first 30-plus years, but never kept weight off until he began accepting the practices and treatments that have been helping addicts for three-quarters of a century. His startling results have convinced him that food addiction exists, despite little acceptance in mainstream medicine and popular belief. In Fat Boy Thin Man, Prager lays out paths to recovery that were shared with him, and that he now shares with readers. http://www.fatboythinman.com /Read More »from Michael Pranger,Lesley M.

Jane Hersey is National Director of the Feingold Association and author of Why Can't My Child Behave? A former teacher and Head Start consultant, she has testified before the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and Congress about ADHD and diet. She frequently lectures at education associations, hospitals, medical groups, universities, and schools, and she spearheaded one of the first low-additive school food programs in the country in the 1980s.
