I Want Those Shoes Book Excerpt:

"Shoes possess magical properties," writes Italian journalist and shoe fanatic Paola Jacobbi. The allure of shoes is so powerful that they have become her fashion obsession, one she shares with millions of women, from Imelda Marcos to Sarah Jessica Parker to Joan Crawford. Here Jacobbi indulges that obsession by embarking on a witty and highly opinionated journey through the styles and cultural significance of women's footwear and our attachment to it. Jacobbi pontificates (sandals are the bikini of footwear); psychoanalyzes (the relationship between shoes and sex); has fiery beliefs (ankle boots are quite simply a no-no); and speculates (there's a little Imelda in all of us). She also offers plenty of sage advice: how to choose the right heel for your physique, how to keep shoes lasting long, why to avoid mules at all costs, and how to judge a man by his footwear. Charming, sassy, and irresistible, I Want Those Shoes! will be a perfect fit for every woman who has ever coveted, rearranged her closet to accommodate, or maxed out her credit card for one more absolutely-gotta-have-it pair of shoes.

The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell Summary Analysis Book Excerpt:

Author Malcolm Gladwell explores the idea of ideas and how they catch fire in his novel, The Tipping Point. He contests that thoughts and ideas spread in much the same way illness spreads, usually to much better effect: a little exposure goes a long way. He presents the spread of ideas as a sort of epidemic, and perhaps his novel is proof of that. Since its release in 2002, The Tipping Point has become a national bestseller. This edition includes a new afterword by the author. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 10.0px 0.0px; text-align: justify; font: 11.0px 'Trebuchet MS'; color: #000000; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} How do ideas go from horribly unpopular to the latest trend so quickly? Malcolm Gladwell dives into the subjects of fashion, children's shows and even cigarettes in a search for the answer. It's a book that will stop and make you think about how these ideas apply within the context of daily life, marketing, and a whole host of other subjects. Gladwell leads us on a sociological expedition into the mentality and behavior that drives societal trends. Sociology students and readers just looking for a good book-and basically anyone in between- will find The Tipping Point highly enjoyable. It is peppered with anecdotes that carry along the scientific ideas quite nicely, making for a quick and interesting read. Gladwell's insight in The Tipping Point has been used in marketing and advertising strategies by many companies, but it's written in just such a way that keeps the content from even approaching dryness. If you enjoy science but hate the feeling of chewing through a research paper, The Tipping Point is absolutely the book for you.

The Dutch Shoe Mystery Book Excerpt:

Queen visits an operating theater to witness a surgery, but finds a murder instead The son of a police detective, Ellery Queen grew up in a bloody atmosphere. Since he started lending his deductive powers to the New York City homicide squad, he has seen more than his fair share of mangled corpses. Though he is accustomed to gore, the thought of seeing a living person sliced open makes him ill. So when a doctor invites him to sit in on an operation, Queen braces his stomach. As it happens, his stomach is spared, but his brain must go to work. The patient is Abigail Doorn, a millionairess in a diabetic coma. To prepare her for surgery, the hospital staff has stabilized her blood sugar level and wheeled her to the operating theater—but just before the first incision, the doctors realize she is dead, strangled while lying unconscious on her gurney. Queen came to the hospital to watch surgeons work, but now it’s his time to operate.
