The world’s bestselling travel book is back in a more informative, more experiential, more budget-friendly full-color edition. A #1 New York Times bestseller, 1,000 Places reinvented the idea of travel book as both wish list and practical guide. As Newsweek wrote, it “tells you what’s beautiful, what’s fun, and what’s just unforgettable— everywhere on earth.” And now the best is better. There are 600 full-color photographs. Over 200 entirely new entries, including visits to 28 countries like Lebanon, Croatia, Estonia, and Nicaragua, that were not in the original edition. There is an emphasis on experiences: an entry covers not just Positano or Ravello, but the full 30-mile stretch along the Amalfi Coast. Every entry from the original edition has been readdressed, rewritten, and made fuller, with more suggestions for places to stay, restaurants to visit, festivals to check out. And throughout, the book is more budget-conscious, starred restaurants and historic hotels such as the Ritz, but also moderately priced gems that don’t compromise on atmosphere or charm. The world is calling. Time to answer.

One may think that Donald Trump knows what he’s talking about. After all, the man—as he’ll remind you at every opportunity—has made a whopping $4 million as an entrepreneur and is far ahead of his competitors in the race to become the republican nominee for the 2016 presidential election. He’s also assertive, bold, self-assured, and argumentative. He talks as if he knows what he’s talking about. And then reality sets it. He can’t actually believe the ludicrous things that come out of his mouth. Or can he? This brilliant, hilarious, and horrifying collection is a compilation of more than one hundred of the most mind-boggling, insane, crass, ignorant, and downright offensive statements he's made, Tweeted, or otherwise written. We’ll cover his thoughts on public policy, international relations, President Barack Obama, his opponents, himself—and much, much more. So buckle up, America, because common sense, experience, grace, and political knowledge—who needs them? As Trump said, he will be one of the greatest presidents “that God ever created.”

This is the first-ever English-language edition of the book Leo Tolstoy considered to be his most important contribution to humanity, the work of his life's last years. Widely read in prerevolutionary Russia, banned and forgotten under Communism; and recently rediscovered to great excitement, A Calendar of Wisdom is a day-by-day guide that illuminates the path of a life worth living with a brightness undimmed by time. Unjustly censored for nearly a century, it deserves to be placed with the few books in our history that will never cease teaching us the essence of what is important in this world.
