Readers of Herodotus’s Histories are familiar with its reports of bizarre portents, riddling oracles, and striking dreams. But Herodotus draws our attention to other types of signs too, beginning with human speech itself as a coded system that can manipulate and be manipulated. Objects, gifts, artifacts, markings, even the human body, are all capable of being invested with meaning in the Histories and Herodotus shows that conventionally and culturally determined actions, gestures, and ritual all need decoding. This book represents an unprecedented examination of signs and their interpreters, as well as the terminology Herodotus uses to describe sign transmission, reception, and decoding. Through his control and involvement in this process he emerges as a veritable “master of signs.”

From being so inept at public speaking that his supervisor wouldn’t let him make presentations to clients—even when he had done all the work—Vikas Jhingran went on to become a championship-winning public speaker who leaves a lasting impact on his audience. Few speakers and presenters understand speeches or presentations at a fundamental level. Most books have an overly prescriptive approach, using the tricks and tools of speech delivery that end up confusing the speech, instead of connecting with the essential part of speaking—that which engages listeners. In Emote, Vikas Jhingran lays bare his unique approach—connecting with his audience on an emotional level, rather than subscribing to a “right” way of speaking—which applies equally to one-on-one conversations, small team settings, and large audiences. His method will show you how to express your ideas clearly, quell your fear of public speaking, calm the sweating, stuttering and jitters that plague people before crucial presentations, and, overall, help you become an effective communicator.

The bestselling science reporter for The New York Times tells us what works and what doesn't when we work out Ultimate Fitness: The Quest for Truth About Exercise and Health is Gina Kolata's compelling journey into the world of American physical fitness over the past thirty years. It is a funny, eye-opening, brow-sweating investigation into the fads, fictions, and science of fitness training. From the early days of jogging, championed by Jim Fixx— who later died of a heart attack—to weight lifting, cycling, aerobics, and Spinning, Kolata questions such popular notions as the "fat-burning zone" and "spot reducing," the effects of food on performance, how much exercise helps build fitness, and the difference between exercise to help the heart and exercise to change the body. She explains the science of physical fitness and the objective evidence behind commonly accepted prescriptions. Along the way she profiles researchers and mavericks who have challenged conventional wisdom, marketed their inventions, and sometimes bucked criticism only to back down from their original claims. Ultimate Fitness spotlights the machines and machinations of the fitness industry, and cuts through the marketing and hype not only to assess what is healthy, but also to understand what our obsession with staying healthy says about American culture today.
