We suffer today from food anxiety, bombarded as we are with confusing messages about how to eat an ethical diet. Should we eat locally? Is organic really better for the environment? Can genetically modified foods be good for you? JUST FOOD does for fresh food what Fast Food Nation (Houghton Mifflin, 2001) did for fast food, challenging conventional views, and cutting through layers of myth and misinformation. For instance, an imported tomato is more energy-efficient than a local greenhouse-grown tomato. And farm-raised freshwater fish may soon be the most sustainable source of protein. Informative and surprising, JUST FOOD tells us how to decide what to eat, and how our choices can help save the planet and feed the world.

She was perhaps the most famous, most scrutinized, most talked about woman of our century. From the moment Jacqueline Kennedy stepped into the White House, she inspired a generation of Americans and changed the face of a nation. But underneath the glitter and the hype, just who was Jackie? Now, in this carefully detailed chronicle, Edward Klein, the former editor in chief of The New York Times Magazine, bestselling author of All Too Human: The Love Story of Jack and Jackie Kennedy, and friend of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis for many years, tells the story of Jackie's best years as it has never been told before, shedding an entire new light on her enduring legacy. Edward Klein has amassed a wealth of exclusive information from private documents and correspondence, FBI files, and hundreds of interviews with Jackie's friends, the associates of her second husband, Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis, and her longtime lover, the mysterious diamond merchant Maurice Templesman. In this extraordinary, myth-shattering book, many people break their silence for the first time, answering dozens of provocative questions: * Why did Jackie marry Onassis? Was it only for the money? * How did she react when Onassis resumed his affair with Maria Callas? * What was the real reason their marriage fell apart? * When Jackie returned to New York, how did she rebuild her future on a tarnished and clouded past? * When did Maurice Templesman enter her life, and what role did he play in helping Jackie build her fortune? * How did Jackie spend her time during those very private New York years? Much more than a portrait of a famous celebrity, Edward Klein's work captures the essence of a captivating woman whose passion for wealth was matched only by her deep need for privacy. In Just Jackie, Klein reveals for the first time how Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis finally found the love and contentment she was searching for all her life.

Nearing 40, standing five feet eight, weighing in at 160 pounds, Mark St. Amant was most definitely not a football player. He had never played a single down of real football in his life and even in the sports he did play, his greatest skill seemed to be choking when the game was on the line. So why on earth did he suddenly become, of all things, a semi-pro football kicker? Fantasy football writer and self-described poster child for suburban-raised white boy Mark St. Amant tells the unlikely story of how he ditched his television and laptop to join an inner-city football squad the mostly African-American Boston Panthers, one of more than 600 semi-pro teams around the country. With warmth, insight, and his trademark offbeat, self-deprecating humor, Mark recounts the strides he made on and off the field and reveals the powerful bonds that developed among teammates young and not-so-young, struggling and successful, black, white, and Hispanic, all clinging tightly to their dreams and playing the game they love. From couch potato to field goal kicker, Mark lived out a real-life football fantasy, discovering true teamwork, staring his lifelong fear of athletic failure in the face, witnessing testosterone-fueled hilarity both on and off the field, and achieving gridiron glory in ways he d never imagined.
