More than fifty years after its original publication, AMMO Books is proud to present this reissue edition of an artistic and imaginative title clearly ahead of its time. BR> Not to be deterred by a hurried schedule or the start of school, a child takes his time to carefully consider whatever flights of fancy come to mind. Delicious, juicy watermelons, bubbling streams and playful puddles, and even particles of dust that dance in the sunlight distract the inventive child from his daily tasks. With artfully simple images as food for thought, young readers will find their own minds wandering as they dream up individual interpretations of THE THINKING BOOK. No analysis will be deemed incorrect, as every flip of the page provides new opportunities for inspiration. To accompany Sandol Stoddard Warburg s thoughtful prose, prolific graphic designer and AIGA medal winner Ivan Chermayeff quite literally paints a picture of childhood imagination. In the time since THE THINKING BOOK s initial release, Chermayeff has built a glowing, sixty-year reputation in the design industry, receiving recognition for the NBC, National Geographic, and Showtime logos, as well as banners and shopping bags for The Museum of Modern Art, where he was a trustee for two decades. With his design firm, Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv, he has earned countless honors, including the National Design Award for Lifetime Achievement."

Professor Forni, founder of The Civility Initiative at Johns Hopkins, is America's civility expert. In his first two books, Choosing Civility and The Civility Solution, he taught readers the rules of civil behavior and ways of responding to rudeness. Now, in The Thinking Life, he looks at the importance of thinking in our lives: how we do it, why we don't do enough of it and why we need to do more of it. In twelve short chapters, he gives readers a remedy for the Age of Distraction, an age fuelled by the internet, Blackberries and cellphones, all of which make constant demands on our attention, diverting it from one thing to another. After suggesting ways we can find time to think more, Forni shows readers how we can improve our abilities of: -Attention -Reflection -Introspection -Self-control -Positive thinking -Proactive thinking -Effective decision-making strategies -Creative thinking -Problem-solving strategies Just as he did with civility, he puts the importance of good thinking front and center in a book as simple and as profound as his earlier works.

“The most amazing, inspiring, ball busting, loving bloggers out there. [These] chicks rock.” —Jenny McCarthy The Thinking Moms’ Revolution (TMR) is a group of twenty-three moms (and one awesome dad) from Montana to Malaysia who all have children with developmental disabilities. Initially collaborating online about therapies, biomedical intervention, alternative medicine, special diets, and practicing professionals on the cutting edge of treatment approaches to an array of chronic and developmental disabilities such as autism, sensory processing disorders, food allergies, ADHD, asthma, seizures, PANDAS, and other related conditions, they’ve come together into something far more substantial. Here, collected by Helen Conroy and Lisa Joyce Goes, are the stories of the moms and their fights to recover their kids from autism and related disorders. With each chapter written by a different TMR member, they share how they discovered each other, what they learned from each other, and why it’s important to have close friends who understand what it’s like to parent a child with special needs. You’ll read about the Thinking Moms’ experiences, and learn how their determination and friendships have become a daily motivation for parents worldwide.

"Charming and erudite . . . The wit and insight and clarity he brings . . . is what makes this book such a gem." --Time.com Why is so much writing so bad, and how can we make it better? Is the English language being corrupted by texting and social media? Do the kids today even care about good writing--and why should we care? In this entertaining and eminently practical book, the cognitive scientist, dictionary consultant, and New York Times-bestselling author Steven Pinker rethinks the usage guide for the twenty-first century. Using examples of great and gruesome modern prose while avoiding the scolding tone and Spartan tastes of the classic manuals, he shows how the art of writing can be a form of pleasurable mastery and a fascinating intellectual topic in its own right. The Sense of Style is for writers of all kinds, and for readers who are interested in letters and literature and are curious about the ways in which the sciences of mind can illuminate how language works at its best.

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “Thrilling . . . [told] with gonzo élan . . . When the sommelier and blogger Madeline Puckette writes that this book is the Kitchen Confidential of the wine world, she’s not wrong, though Bill Buford’s Heat is probably a shade closer.” —Jennifer Senior, The New York Times “As informative as it is, well, intoxicating.” —Fortune “A funny, fascinating adventure.” —Real Simple Professional journalist and amateur drinker Bianca Bosker didn’t know much about wine—until she discovered an alternate universe where taste reigns supreme, a world of elite sommeliers who dedicate their lives to the pursuit of flavor. Astounded by their fervor and seemingly superhuman sensory powers, she set out to uncover what drove their obsession, and whether she, too, could become a “cork dork.” With boundless curiousity, humor, and a healthy dose of skepticism, Bosker takes the reader inside underground tasting groups, exclusive New York City restaurants, California mass-market wine factories, and even a neuroscientist’s fMRI machine as she attempts to answer the most nagging question of all: what’s the big deal about wine? What she learns will change the way you drink wine—and, perhaps, the way you live—forever.
