The time is perfect for a short, smart purse book. The "good bag" has nudged out shoes, jeans, and jewelry as the must–have fashion possession. Despite price hikes –– $1,445 for a Prada bowler bag that once cost $940 –– the craze for high–end purses helps fuel the booming luxury–goods market and, via knock–offs, hugely influences the $6 billion–a–year mainstream handbag industry. But purse mania isn't just an outgrowth of a strong luxury–goods market –– human thoughts, feelings, and dreams are involved, too. As Nadia, a high–powered interior designer says, "My cell and my big Tod's purse –– that is my life." In IT'S IN THE BAG, noted journalist Winifred Gallagher explains it what means for a purse to be a life. This cultural history of the handbag borrows from psychology (Freud noted that sometimes a purse is a vagina –– which is perhaps why the first "handbags" were carried by men!), sociology (a purse as a "status symbol") and even economics (Why have prices gotten so steep?). Researched and erudite yet always fun, Winifred Gallagher offers in IT'S IN THE BAG a charming theory of modern identity as seen through one of our keenest obsessions.

This book by dream expert Leon Nacson is more than just a dream dictionary or a thesaurus. It is a definitive dream decoder. Finally, you can simply and effortlessly discover the true meaning behind the symbols in your dreams. Unlike traditional dream dictionaries, this book presents the meanings behind modern-day symbols such as mobile phones, boom boxes, and DVD players. For example, spiders are becoming more common in dreams because we spend more time on the World Wide Web these days. Traditional dictionaries might simply describe spiders as symbols of danger and entrapment. Ultimately, this book will become the benchmark for accurate dream interpretation.
