The Dark Side of Stand Up Comedy Book Excerpt:

This book focuses on the “dark side” of stand-up comedy, initially inspired by speculations surrounding the death of comedian Robin Williams. Contributors, those who study humor as well as those who perform comedy, join together to contemplate the paradoxical relationship between tragedy and comedy and expose over-generalizations about comic performers’ troubled childhoods, addictions, and mental illnesses. The book is divided into two sections. First, scholars from a variety of disciplines explore comedians’ onstage performances, their offstage lives, and the relationship between the two. The second half of the book focuses on amateur and lesser-known professional comedians who reveal the struggles they face as they attempt to hone successful comedy acts and likable comic personae. The goal of this collection is to move beyond the hackneyed stereotype of the sad clown in order to reveal how stand-up comedy can transform both personal and collective tragedies by providing catharsis through humor.

GMO Myths and Truths Book Excerpt:

It is often claimed that the case against genetically modified (GM) crops and foods is based on emotion, not science, and that to oppose GM crop and food technology is to be anti-science. It is also claimed that GM crops offer higher yields and better nutrition, that they are safe for health and the environment, that they reduce agrochemical use, and that they are needed to feed the world’s growing population. This book, co-authored by two genetic engineers and a writer/researcher, exposes these claims as false, using scientific and other documented evidence. GMO Myths and Truths summarizes the facts on the safety and efficacy of genetically modified (GM) crops and foods in terms that are accessible to the non-scientist but still relevant to scientists, policymakers and educators. The evidence presented points to many hazards, risks, and limitations of genetic engineering technology. These include harms found in animal feeding and ecological studies, which in turn indicate risks to health and the environment posed by GM crops and foods. The layout of the book enables those readers with limited time to read the chapter summaries, while providing more detail and full references for those who require them. At 164 pages of paperback size, this new condensed version is shorter and more accessible than the authors’ 330-page report by the same name, which has been downloaded over half a million times. The book shows that conventional breeding continues to outstrip GM in developing crops that deliver high yields, better nutrition, and tolerance to extreme weather conditions and poor soils. In agreement with over 400 international experts who co-authored a UN and World Bank-sponsored report on the future of farming, the authors conclude that modern agroecology, rather than GM, is the best path for feeding the world’s current and future populations in a safe and sustainable way.

American Jihad A Love Story Book Excerpt:

After losing my father and my first love at a very early age, I began to seek answers to life’s eternal questions, including “Why are we here?” I then met Ken at the New York World’s Fair and tenuously accepted his offer of taking “self-defense lessons.” Ken told me that I would become a teacher, but for years I fought against the idea. Eventually, I did become a teacher of learning disabled students, but only recently did I truly understand what Ken’s lessons meant. The lessons led me on a journey that redefined everything I thought to be “true.” It’s been said: “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” Ken appeared to me when the time was right, and his words are being offered to those ready to hear them. I am not a writer, but feel compelled to spread Ken’s story. Unbelievable to even myself at times, it offers insight and enlightenment to those who listen to its lessons with open minds and hearts.

Mastering Stand Up Book Excerpt:

Stephen Rosenfield, founder and director of the American Comedy Institute, the premier comedy school in the United States, has taught literally dozens of major standup comics in North America, and has also pioneered comedy as an academic discipline in many universities, a trend that is rapidly spreading. Mastering Stand-Up draws on Rosenfield's own extensive experience (and those of countless stars like Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, Chris Rock, Rodney Dangerfield, Louis C.K., Steve Martin, Roseanne, and Johnny Carson) to show the reader—and would-be comic—what works, what doesn't, and why. Forty sharply written chapters cover every conceivable angle of the joke and how to tell it. There are a number of books on comedy and how to do it, but none has the breadth and authority Rosenfield brings to his theme. It's not for nothing that the New York Times has described him as "probably the best-known comedy teacher in the country." Rosenfield's book is sure to become the classic text on its subject. And it should help thousands who long to make others laugh to realize their fondest hopes.

A Taste of Jesus Book Excerpt:

"A Taste of Jesus" is an in-depth look at the characteristics that are meant to make up the Christian's life: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Bradley explains just how radical and counter-cultural these fruits are when they are grown in fullness. These are the characteristics of the upside-down, backwards Kingdom of Heaven and when we live like we're residents there, we begin to give people a real taste of Jesus, who is living inside of us via the Holy Spirit. This is by no means meant to be an easy book to absorb, for the fruit of the Spirit constantly butts heads with our flesh—but if you feel uncomfortable, maybe that's okay. Embrace it and see what God does. Jamin Bradley is ordained in the Free Methodist Church and is the lead pastor of 1208GREENWOOD in downtown Jackson, MI. He and his wife Jodi have two energetic kids named Beckett and Jericho who love to keep them on their toes. Outside of pastoring and writing, Jamin loves video games, board games, grilling, entertaining guests, and writing, recording and playing music. "If you’re looking for the typical, easy to read, feel-good Christian book—this is not the one. A Taste of Jesus discusses the Fruits of the Spirit through a comprehensive, theological, relevant, thorough, and experiential understanding. Bradley reminds us and challenges us to know and believe that God’s love is unconditional, Jesus’ example is an attainable lifestyle, the Holy Spirit is moving and operating in His entirety, Scripture is relevant and authoritative, and the world–although influential–should never be the final word. I’ve known Pastor Jamin for a while, and what I’ve read in this book is what I have personally witnessed in his day-to-day discipline and ministry. As you pick up this book, have your Bible close by and a friend with whom to read and discuss." -Pastor Steven Hlatky
