If I Only Had A Brain from the Author: Michael Passafiume. If I only had a brain I'd trust more people and eat more fish. I'd celebrate Arbor Day by Krazy Gluing a pine cone to my forehead... I wouldn't pay more to see a movie than I would to eat a full meal. I'd have my voice box removed and replaced with a computer chip so that I could say "Hello and welcome to Moviefone!"... I'd shut the world down for a day and get a good night's sleep but most of all... -- excerpted from the poem "if i only had a brain" Michael Passafiume began writing when he was in the third grade, and hasn't stopped since. Whether revisiting the ghosts of his childhood, picking apart the ever-elusive American Dream, or wrestling with the meanings of life and love, Passafiume's poetry lays bare the disillusionment, fear and hope that resides in us all.A longtime proponent of poetry for and about the masses, the author is unabashed in his belief that "poetry that cannot be understood by the reader is alienating and irrelevant." This book might just change your notion of this helter-skelter world. It might make you reassess your own life. It might even make you believe in poetry again.

Brilliant Green from the Author: Stefano Mancuso. In this book, a leading plant scientist offers a new understanding of the botanical world and a passionate argument for intelligent plant life. Are plants intelligent? Can they solve problems, communicate, and navigate their surroundings? For centuries, philosophers and scientists have argued that plants are unthinking and inert, yet discoveries over the past fifty years have challenged this idea, shedding new light on the complex interior lives of plants. In Brilliant Green, leading scientist Stefano Mancuso presents a new paradigm in our understanding of the vegetal world. He argues that plants process information, sleep, remember, and signal to one another-showing that, far from passive machines, plants are intelligent and aware. Part botany lesson, part manifesto, Brilliant Green is an engaging and passionate examination of the inner workings of the plant kingdom.

An Equation For Every Occasion from the Author: John M. Henshaw. With this fun romp through the world of equations we encounter in our everyday lives, you’ll find yourself flipping through the stories of fifty-two formulas faster than a deck of cards. John M. Henshaw’s intriguing true accounts, each inspired by a different mathematical equation, are both succinct and easy to read. His tales come from the spheres of sports, business, history, the arts, science, and technology. Anecdotes about famous equations, like E=mc 2, appear alongside tales of not-so-famous—but equally fascinating—equations, such as the one used to determine the SPF number for sunscreen. Drawn from the breadth of human endeavor, Henshaw's stories demonstrate the power and utility of math. He entertains us by exploring the ways that equations can be used to explain, among other things, Ponzi schemes, the placebo effect, "dog years," IQ, the wave mechanics of tsunamis, the troubled modern beekeeping industry, and the Challenger disaster. Smartly conceived and fast paced, his book offers something for anyone curious about math and its impacts.
