When your wife throws you out of the house, no one gives you an instruction manual. You’re officially on your own! Zachary Brooks was once in that exact situation—left on the sidewalk like the trash. He felt alone, scared, helpless, and unsure what to do next. His number one priority was maintaining a close relationship with his son. So many questions swirled through his head: When will I be allowed to see my son again? What did I do to deserve this? What could happen next? How am I supposed to get through this? When he went to the Internet and libraries to search for information, he found legal jargon and condescending rhetoric from lawyers, social workers, politicians and overly educated individuals who had never personally experienced the sheer brutality of a divorce. He wrote this guide to help other dads better understand and manage the critical elements of their divorce while remaining a beacon of light in the lives of their children. “As a divorced dad, while reading this book, I found myself relating to each story, each situation, and each feeling associated with the process of divorce. A book, such as this, would have benefited me immensely if it was released before or during my ‘eviction.’ This is the person that you want to learn from.” —Seth Lerman, professor, author

Why I Hate the Yankees offers a humorous take on the most beloved--and at the same time, most reviled--franchise in American professional sports. The book attempts to answer the question: Do we hate the Yankees merely because they always win, or is there more to it than just that? The authors deconstruct the origins of the so-called Yankee mystique, offer countless examples of Yankee arrogance, and critique the Yankees' easy-way-out business model whereby they merely outspend other teams for talent. The authors leave no one exempt from blame, parodying the Yankees' fans, players, and overbearing owner, and questioning the motives of the national media and Major League Baseball. The tongue-in-cheek narrative is interspersed with revealing quotes from Yankee players, fans, media members, and other writers. A must-read for any hater--or lover--of the Yankees.

Loyalty to a great cause raises some of the most profound issues in philosophy, and loyalty to the greatest of all causes, the Boston Red Sox, poses these questions in the sharpest possible way. The Red Sox and Philosophy brings together a team of thirty of America's leading thinkers (twenty-eight of them citizens of Red Sox Nation), to unravel some of the mysteries of the Red Sox. Can we adapt Anselm's proof of the existence of God to prove that the Red Sox are the greatest conceivable sports team? Why are Red Sox fans moral heroes? Can the science of sabermetrics be reconciled with the religion of baseball? Are pink Red Sox hats rationally defensible? These and other challenging problems are solved in The Red Sox and Philosophy. - Publisher.
