Restaurant Survival Guide is here to help. It’s the first book in the Eat This, Not That! series to focus solely on burger shacks, pizza parlors, pasta joints, breakfast diners, Mexican cantinas, Chinese eateries, drive-thrus, and coffee shops.

Inner Beauty: Looking, Feeling and Being Your Best Through Traditional Chinese Healing
The charismatic author of Reflections of the Moon on Water brings her years of experience in the healing wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine to show how Western women can achieve lifelong health, beauty and wellness. From the moment we first become self-conscious about our looks, most of us want to appear young and beautiful. For some, the pursuit of beauty extends to lotions, potions and the surgeon's scalpel. But Xiaolan Zhao believes the ultimate source of beauty is health and well-being. In this wise and important book, Dr. Zhao talks about inner and outer beauty, using personal stories, anecdotes and case studies from her TCM practice. She also covers the fundamentals of beauty, preventing and treating skin damage, caring for sensitive skin, the benefits of acupuncture, helpful non-surgical procedures, and nutrition. With a special emphasis on women's health and beauty issues, the book covers a plethora of relevant topics, such as baby skin problems, acne in adolescence and beyond, rosacea, eczema, allergies and rashes, skin cancer, wrinkles. Providing a foreword, as well as thoughtful commentary and information on Western medical views, is dermatologist Dr. Sandy Skotnicki. Dr. Skotnicki first met Xiaolan as a patient, and the two doctors discovered they had many common interests and concerns regarding lifelong health and beauty. What's more, there is an invaluable reference section featuring TCM and traditional treatments for a wide variety of conditions, including recipes for salves and infusions that you can make at home using ingredients purchased at a Chinese apothecary or from a TCM practitioner.

Weapons of Fitness: The Women's Ultimate Guide to Fitness, Self-Defense, and Empowerment
A groundbreaking self-defense and fitness book for women by a ballerina turned self-defense expert. Avital Zeisler was a ballerina in Canada when she was savagely attacked by a larger, stronger man. For months afterward she lived in fear, until finally, she decided to take matters into her own hands and began self-defense training with professionals from around the world. She studied with military personnel, martial arts experts, and security specialists, and even became the first international woman to graduate from the Israeli Krav Maga Association. However, she quickly realized none of these self-defense programs took into account the extra difficulties that women in particular can face when being attacked. As a woman, what should you do if your attacker is one hundred pounds heavier and much stronger than you, and is slow to react to pain due to drug or alcohol consumption? Zeisler realized women needed a program designed specifically for them. Using her personal experience as a driving force and the methods she'd studied as a base, she came up with a self-defense system tailored for women. She called it the Soteria Method, after the Greek goddess of safety. Women flocked to her classes to learn how to defend themselves in any situation by turning their own bodies into weapons. Often petite or concerned about being 'weak,' after Zeisler's class these women soon exulted in their ability to protect themselves. Now, Zeilser offers you her groundbreaking program. Unique and powerful, Weapons of Fitness provides you with: a six-week program to teach you moves with which to defend yourself in any situation - and get you into the best shape of your life an explanation of the principles and practice of street fighting an introduction to the tools that will raise your situational awareness without leaving you paranoid - so that you can live a confident, empowered life a new definition of self-defense As Zeisler learned, the smarter and more targeted her training, the stronger and more confident she became. Zeisler's system brings you her unique and exclusive method of self-defense, fitness, and empowerment, giving you a sense of comfort and power in any situation while also allowing you to let your guard down, both physically and emotionally.

The Prediabetes Diet Plan
A practical, empowering guide to managing and reversing prediabetes through diet and exercise, from a registered dietitian. Affecting 79 million Americans, prediabetes often develops into full-blown type 2 diabetes, one of the leading causes of death in the United States.

In straightforward, jargon-free language, The Prediabetes Diet Plan explains insulin resistance (the underlying cause of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes) and offers a comprehensive strategy of diet and lifestyle change, which has been proven more effective than medication. With sections on meal planning, grocery shopping, dining out, supplements, and exercise, this book empowers you to make healthier everyday choices that can effect real change on your insulin levels and overall well-being.
We Are All the Same
From one of America's best known newsmen comes a heart-lifting story of the resilience of the human spirit in the face of the worst conceivable tragedy. Born into poverty in a South African shantytown, Nkosi Johnson entered the world infected with HIV. He was given only a few years to live. But his ailing mother managed to cross her country's chasm of race and class and find Nkosi a new home and a foster mother who stubbornly believed that every child's life is important. Before he died at the age of twelve, Nkosi had become - in Nelson Mandela's words - "an icon of the struggle for life" for millions in Africa and around the world. In We Are All the Same, Jim Wooten tells the story of these remarkable people with power and simple, unflinching honesty, giving an intimate voice to the too-often-mute human dimension of the global AIDS crisis.
