"The Secret Lives of Chickens" does not describe how to raise chickens but rather how chickens live their lives, what their own society is like, what they do in their day-to-day living, their generally contented and happy approach to life, their many wiles, and more. Chickens are much more than we generally assume them to be. They are clever and they outsmart us all the time. What they do, and the situations in which they find themselves, can be humorous, and warm, and friendly. "The Secret Lives of Chickens" is a pleasant, easy to read book. This second edition of the hardcover book has been re-formatted from 10x8 to 8x10, some of the many photos have been spruced up a bit, but otherwise the content is the same.

We lose it. We gain it. We hate it. We hide it. We shame it. We suck it in and we even suck it out. Fat is an international obsession, a dirty word and our least understood body part. A groundbreaking combination of historical, cultural and cutting-edge scientific research, The Secret Life of Fat reveals everything we need to understand fat: how it influences our appetite and willpower, how it defends itself when attacked and why it grows back so quickly. Find out how our genetics and hormones determine how much we fat we have and where exactly it will show. Fascinating and surprising in equal measure, this book will give you a powerful new understanding of your body. Sylvia Tara holds a PhD in Biochemistry from the University of California and an MBA from the University of Pennsylvania. After noticing that she ate far less and exercised more than her friends, and yet couldn't lose as much weight, she began her research into the science of fat.

Legendary Heroes of U.S. History—As You’ve Never Seen Them Before! Secret Lives of the Civil War features irreverent and uncensored profiles of men and women from the Union and the Confederacy—complete with hundreds of little-known and downright bizarre facts. You’ll discover that: • Mary Todd Lincoln claimed to receive valuable military strategies from ghosts in the spirit world. • Jefferson Davis once imported camels for soldiers stationed in the American southwest. • Ulysses S. Grant spent much of the Vicksburg campaign on a horse named “Kangaroo.” • James Longstreet fought the Battle of Antietam wearing carpet slippers. • William T. Sherman was the victim of two shipwrecks on the same day. • Harriet Tubman experienced frequent and bizarre hallucinations. • Stonewall Jackson was a notorious hypochondriac (he always sat up straight, fearing that slouching would compress his vital organs). With chapters on everyone from William Quantrill (a guerilla leader whose skull later ended up in the basement of a fraternity house) to Rose O’Neal Greenhow (perhaps the South’s most glamorous spy), Secret Lives of the Civil War features a mix of famous faces and unsung heroes.

Double Life Girl-next-door Katrina Montgomery, 20, was blessed with beauty, brains, and a loving family. But inexplicably, something drew her to the dark side. As a teen, she had begun sneaking off to a party with a violent, drug-abusing Neo-Nazi gang, and she couldn't seem to resist her attraction to tattooed skinhead Justin Merriman, 20, a brutal, boozing speed freak. The two kept up a correspondence while he did time for assaulting a correctional officer. Dance Of Death When Merriman was released from jail, he and Katrina resumed their dangerous relationship. On Thanksgiving weekend, 1992, Katrina went to a gang party and wound up in the townhouse where Merriman lived with his mother. There, Merriman raped Katrina in front of two of his skinhead buddies. Then he stabbed her in the neck, bludgeoned her with a wrench, and finally cut her throat. Case Closed Katrina's body wasn't found. Meanwhile, Just Merriman continued his orgy of brutality and rape, terrorizing his victims into keeping silent. He eluded justice for six years, until cops attempted to stop him for a minor traffic violation--and he bolted. On January 30, 1998, after a wild chase and seven-hour standoff involving a bomb threat, Ventura County Sheriff's Officers arrested him. As police dug into the cold case of Katrina's murder, they found what they needed--enough for a jury to declare that Merriman should die by lethal injection in California's San Quentin Prison. Included 16 pages of shocking photos.

Veteran journalist Andrew Lawler delivers a “fascinating and delightful…globetrotting tour” (Wall Street Journal) with the animal that has been most crucial to the spread of civilization—the chicken. In a masterful combination of historical sleuthing and journalistic adventure, veteran reporter Andrew Lawler “opens a window on civilization, evolution, capitalism, and ethics” (New York) with a fascinating account of the most successful of all cross-species relationships—the partnership between human and chicken. This “splendid book full of obsessive travel and research in history” (Kirkus Reviews) explores how people through the ages embraced the chicken as a messenger of the gods, an all-purpose medicine, an emblem of resurrection, a powerful sex symbol, a gambling aid, a handy research tool, an inspiration for bravery, the epitome of evil, and, of course, the star of the world’s most famous joke. Queen Victoria was obsessed with the chicken. Socrates’s last words embraced it. Charles Darwin and Louis Pasteur used it for scientific breakthroughs. Religious leaders of all stripes have praised it. Now neuroscientists are uncovering signs of a deep intelligence that offers insights into human behavior. Trekking from the jungles of southeast Asia through the Middle East and beyond, Lawler discovers the secrets behind the fowl’s transformation from a shy, wild bird into an animal of astonishing versatility, capable of serving our species’ changing needs more than the horse, cow, or dog. The natural history of the chicken, and its role in entertainment, food history, and food politics, as well as the debate raging over animal welfare, comes to light in this “witty, conversational” (Booklist) volume.
