Being included in this "hall of shame" is a dubious honor, but countless fans of professional football, basketball, and baseball are sure to make this book a star player. As the fan base for professional sports rabidly seeks to score news on the most famous-or most infamous-athletes, reports of outrageous, shocking, and even disturbing behavior from the players have skyrocketed. Spoiled Sports: Comical and Disturbing Stories of the 21st Century is an entertaining expose of the funniest and most shameful behavior by professional athletes. The stories chronicle professional athletes' most amusing, unusual, undignified, and unethical criminal escapades. The book, by first-time author and sports fanatic Garret Kolb, features 38 recent accounts of ridiculous and shameful athlete behavior, along with a detailed list of today's 38 worst offenders (the "Ingrate 38"), according to both courts of law and public opinion. A 38-question quiz rounds out the compilation and tests the reader's knowledge of sports players and their on- and off-the-field shenanigans. Included are such misadventures and mishaps as: * Green Bay Packer Najeh Davenport is arrested after defecating in the laundry basket of an unsuspecting coed. * A minor-league baseball game in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, is delayed while Boston Red Sox Manny Ramirez searches the field for his lost diamond earring. These and dozens of other stories are sure to hit a home run with legions of sports fans.

The most famous and perhaps greatest novel of all time, Tolstoy's 'War and Peace' tells the story of five families struggling for survival during Napoleon's invasion of Russia in 1812. As Napoleon's army invades, Tolstoy brilliantly follows characters from diverse backgrounds—peasants and nobility, civilians and soldiers—as they struggle with the problems unique to their era, their history, and their culture. And as the novel progresses, these characters transcend their specificity, becoming some of the most moving—and human—figures in world literature. Among its many unforgettable characters is Prince Andrey Bolkonsky, a proud, dashing man who, despising the artifice of high society, joins the army to achieve glory. Badly wounded at Austerlitz, he begins to discover the emptiness of everything to which he has devoted himself. His death scene is considered one of the greatest passages in Russian literature. The novel's other hero, the bumbling Pierre Bezukhov, tries to find meaning in life through a series of philosophical systems that promise to resolve all questions. He at last discovers the Tolstoyan truth that wisdom is to be found not in systems but in the ordinary processes of daily life, especially in his marriage to the novel's most memorable heroine, Natasha. Both an intimate study of individual passions and an epic history of Russia and its people, 'War and Peace' is nothing more or less than a complete portrait of human existence.
