Don't Sleep, There Are Snakes

by Daniel L. Everett

A riveting account of the astonishing experiences and discoveries made by linguist Daniel Everett while he lived with the Pirahã, a small tribe of Amazonian Indians in central Brazil. Everett, then a Christian missionary, arrived among the Pirahã in 1977-with his wife and three young children-intending to convert them. What he found was a language that defies all existing linguistic theories and reflects a way of life that evades contemporary understanding: The Pirahã have no counting system and no fixed terms for color. They have no concept of war or of personal property. They live entirely in the present. Everett became obsessed with their language and its cultural and linguistic implications, and with the remarkable contentment with which they live-so much so that he eventually lost his faith in the God he'd hoped to introduce to them. Over three decades, Everett spent a total of seven years among the Pirahã, and his account of this lasting sojourn is an engrossing exploration of language that questions modern linguistic theory. It is also an anthropological investigation, an adventure story, and a riveting memoir of a life profoundly affected by exposure to a different culture. Written with extraordinary acuity, sensitivity, and openness, it is fascinating from first to last, rich with unparalleled insight into the nature of language, thought, and life itself. From the Hardcover edition.

C. ) "Susan Reinhardt takes the naked, honest truth and sets it on fire in a blaze of laughter. . . will have you holding your sides the whole time.

Don't Speak to Strange Girls

by Harry Whittington

"Tell yourself the cold truth-she's a tramp!" Clay Stuart flinched. "I guess we've been enemies too long to be polite to each other, Kay." Kay's voice was heated. "For years I've been your doormat, secretary, armor, weapon...everything you needed." But Kay knew that was not entirely true. Even that first time they'd gone to bed-and how many women had he had since?-he'd been a blister of hurt and rages, ready to burst, and even then she'd known he needed something more. And now he had it-in Joanne Stark, tease and tramp. And Joanne Stark was destroying him-destroying Clay Stuart, the guy who was known as Big Daddy Sex, sniffing out all the broads for miles around. "If you ever manage to get rid of her," Kay said, "you'll never know how lucky you are." "Yeah," Clay said. "God knows I'm lucky. I stink with luck."

Don't Start the Revolution Without Me!

by Jesse Ventura Dick Russell

Jesse Ventura has had many lives-as a Navy SEAL, as a star of pro wrestling, as an actor, and as the governor of Minnesota. His previous books, I Ain't Got Time to Bleed and Do I Stand Alone?, were both national bestsellers. Don't Start the Revolution Without Me! is the story of his controversial gubernatorial years and his life since deciding not to seek a second term as governor in 2002. Written with award-winning author Dick Russell at a secluded location on Mexico's Baja Peninsula, Ventura's bestselling book reveals for the first time why he left politics-and why he is now considering reentering the arena with a possible independent run for the presidency. In a fast-paced and often humorous narrative, Ventura pulls no punches in discussing our corrupt two-party system, the disastrous war in Iraq, and what he suspects really happened on September 11. He provides personal insights into the Clinton and Bush presidencies, and elaborates on the ways in which third parties are rendered impotent by the country's two dominant parties. He reveals the illegal role of the CIA in states like Minnesota, sensitive and up-to-date information on the Blackwater security firm, the story of the American spies who shadowed him on a trade mission to Cuba, and what Fidel Castro told him about who really assassinated President John F. Kennedy. This unique political memoir is a must-read for anyone concerned about the direction that America will take.
