The Curly Girl manifesto is back, now completely revised, updated, and expanded by more than a third with all-new material. Created by curly hair evangelist Lorraine Massey—the go-to curl expert featured in Allure, InStyle, Lucky, Seventeen, and The New York Times; owner of the Devachan salons in New York; and creator of a multimillion-dollar line of all-natural Devachan products—Curly Girl is the surprising bible for the 65 percent of women with naturally curly or wavy hair and a desire to celebrate it.

Curly Girl is packed with unique and fail-proof hair-care methods, inspiration, and an empowering pro-curl attitude. It’s all here: daily routines for Botticelli, fractal, and wavy curls; Lorraine’s no-more-shampoo epiphany—handle your hair as gently as you do your best cashmere sweater; homemade lotions and potions.

New to this edition: an illustrated, step-by-step guide to trimming your own hair (Remember: It’s not what you take off; it’s what you leave on.); a section on the particular needs of wavy hair; Lorraine’s Down-and-Dirty Curly Boy Routine; more fabulous ’dos for weddings and other special occasions; a chapter on multicurltural hair written by an African American specialist at Devachan. Plus, updated information on green and chemical-free products, 20 new Q&A’s, and a DVD with tutorials on caring for four different types of curls.

From now on, there’s no such thing as a bad hair day.

Coconuts and Kettlebells: A Personalized 4-Week Food and Fitness Plan for Long-Term Health, Happiness, and Freedom

Coconuts and Kettlebells: A Personalized 4-Week Food and Fitness Plan for Long-Term Health, Happiness, and Freedom Lowest new price: $19.85
Lowest used price: $19.45
List price: $29.99
Author: Noelle Tarr

Created by the expert hosts of the popular Well-Fed Women Podcast, a step-by-step food and fitness plan for women, that teaches them how to improve their health by changing the quality—not the quantity—of the food they eat.

To eat your way to better health, you don’t need to limit your calorie intake, or cut out carbs or fat. You don’t need to count "points." Better health doesn’t come from limits. It comes from focusing on the quality of food that you eat—not the quantity. Instead of limiting your food intake you should be enriching it, argue Noelle Tarr and Stefani Ruper. The popular hosts of the Well-Fed Women Podcast want you to focus on the good things you eat. They want to make sure you get enough food so that your body has the fuel and nourishment it needs to support a healthy, long, and energetic life.

Noelle and Stefani know about eating for health firsthand. They, too, struggled with confusing and frustrating medical conditions, including infertility, digestive issues, acne, polycystic ovarian syndrome, hypothyroidism, and anemia. They discovered that the secret to improving wellness was actually more food: they ditched the diet books, calorie counters, and scales, and started eating their way to health.

In Coconuts and Kettlebells, you’ll eat at least 2,000 calories a day thanks to a delicious selection of dishes that are all gluten-free, grain-free, and paleo. Within those 2,000 calories, setting a minimum intakes of protein, fat, and carbohydrates instead of the usual maximums will ensure that your diet is full of nutrients, while also providing flexibility to enjoy what you’re eating. Noelle and Stefani identify the Big Four foods—grains, dairy, vegetable oils, and refined sugar—that cause the most health problems among women. While many diets require you to eliminate these foods entirely, Coconuts and Kettlebells provides an easy-to-follow step-by-step program to test these foods and determine which you need to cut back on—and which you don’t—to feel better.

To help you discover how your body responds to the Big Four, you’ll choose from two simple 4-week meal plans: one for the Butter Lover (people who tend to feel more satisfied eating higher ratios of fats) and one for the Bread Lover (people who tend to feel more satisfied eating higher ratios of carbs). Each meal plan comes with a weekly shopping list, a guide to kitchen tools and equipment, and instructions on how to batch cook, meal prep, and stock the pantry. In addition, you’ll have access to over 75 gluten-free and paleo-friendly flavor-packed recipes (free of the Big Four foods) for every meal of the day, including:

  • Coconut Chai Latte
  • Kale and Bacon Breakfast Skillet
  • Apple Pie Smoothie
  • Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp
  • Moroccan Lamb Meatballs
  • Shrimp and Cabbage Stir Fry
  • Parsnip and Carrot Fries
  • Mango Jalapeno Salsa
  • Chocolate Cherry Energy Bites
  • Lemon Raspberry Mini Cheesecakes

To go along with the meal plans, Noelle and Stefani also provide three 4-week fitness plans tailored to three experience levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. All of the workouts can be done anywhere—at your home or on the road—and take no more than thirty minutes. A comprehensive whole body program to get and keep you healthy inside and out, Coconuts and Kettlebells provides the knowledge and tools you need to heal in a way that is effortless, rewarding, confidence-boosting, and everlasting.

Coconuts and Kettlebells is illustrated with color photos throughout.

The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer

The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer Lowest new price: $7.60
Lowest used price: $3.71
List price: $20.00
Author: Siddhartha Mukherjee
Brand: Scribner Book Company

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, and now a documentary from Ken Burns on PBS, The Emperor of All Maladies is a magnificent, profoundly humane “biography” of cancer—from its first documented appearances thousands of years ago through the epic battles in the twentieth century to cure, control, and conquer it to a radical new understanding of its essence.

Physician, researcher, and award-winning science writer, Siddhartha Mukherjee examines cancer with a cellular biologist’s precision, a historian’s perspective, and a biographer’s passion. The result is an astonishingly lucid and eloquent chronicle of a disease humans have lived with—and perished from—for more than five thousand years.

The story of cancer is a story of human ingenuity, resilience, and perseverance, but also of hubris, paternalism, and misperception. Mukherjee recounts centuries of discoveries, setbacks, victories, and deaths, told through the eyes of his predecessors and peers, training their wits against an infinitely resourceful adversary that, just three decades ago, was thought to be easily vanquished in an all-out “war against cancer.” The book reads like a literary thriller with cancer as the protagonist.

From the Persian Queen Atossa, whose Greek slave may have cut off her diseased breast, to the nineteenth-century recipients of primitive radiation and chemotherapy to Mukherjee’s own leukemia patient, Carla, The Emperor of All Maladies is about the people who have soldiered through fiercely demanding regimens in order to survive—and to increase our understanding of this iconic disease.

Riveting, urgent, and surprising, The Emperor of All Maladies provides a fascinating glimpse into the future of cancer treatments. It is an illuminating book that provides hope and clarity to those seeking to demystify cancer.

The Undoing Project: A Friendship That Changed Our Minds

The Undoing Project: A Friendship That Changed Our Minds Lowest new price: $9.00
Lowest used price: $3.24
List price: $16.95
Author: Michael Lewis

“Brilliant. . . . Lewis has given us a spectacular account of two great men who faced up to uncertainty and the limits of human reason.” ―William Easterly, Wall Street Journal

Forty years ago, Israeli psychologists Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky wrote a series of breathtakingly original papers that invented the field of behavioral economics. One of the greatest partnerships in the history of science, Kahneman and Tversky’s extraordinary friendship incited a revolution in Big Data studies, advanced evidence-based medicine, led to a new approach to government regulation, and made much of Michael Lewis’s own work possible. In The Undoing Project, Lewis shows how their Nobel Prize–winning theory of the mind altered our perception of reality.

Dude, You're Gonna Be a Dad!: How to Get (Both of You) Through the Next 9 Months

Dude, You're Gonna Be a Dad!: How to Get (Both of You) Through the Next 9 Months Lowest new price: $0.39
Lowest used price: $1.09
List price: $13.95
Author: John Pfeiffer
Brand: Adams Media Corporation

There are approximately 3,712 ways for a guy to look stupid during pregnancy - this book's here to help you avoid all(most) of them. And here's your first hint: Focus on what you can be doing for her rather than what's happening to her.

She's pregnant. She knows that. You know that. And her 152 baby books tell her exactly what she can expect. Your job is to learn what you can do between the stick turning blue and the drive to the delivery room to make the next nine months go as smoothly as possible. That's where John Pfeiffer steps in.

Like any good coach, he's been through it. He's dealt with the morning sickness and doctor visits, painting the baby's nursery and packing the overnight bag, choosing a name, hospital, and the color of the car-seat cover. All the while he remained positive and responsive - there with a "You're beautiful" when necessary - but assertive during the decision-making process (he didn't want to wind up with a kid named Percy). And now it's your turn.

She might be having the baby, but you have plenty of responsibilities.
