"Best 331 Colleges 2002 (Best Colleges)"
It's official--the best party school in the nation is no longer
LSU. Curious about where the frat-to-lab ratio is highest, or just
trying to find out where your chances of getting a scholarship are
best? There's no better place to find out than Princeton Review's
annual "Best 331 Colleges." The 2002 edition ranks schools in a wide

"How to Go to College Almost for Free: The Secrets of Winning
Scholarship Money (How to Go to College Almost for Free, 2001)"
Benjamin R. Kaplan
Speaking of college, just how are you going to afford to get your
higher education? If you need some concrete advice on getting help

Free." Author Ben Kaplan knows what he's talking about--he financed
his trip through Harvard on dozens of scholarships.
"The Art of Shen Ku: The Ultimate Traveler's Guide: The First
Intergalactic Artform of the En Tire Universe"
Reference geeks know that some of the quirkiest books hide out in
the back of the bookstore, near the dictionaries. "The Art of Shen
Ku" is such a book. It's a how-to manual with an Eastern bent,
covering everything from knot-tying to stain removal, isometric
exercise to lowering cholesterol. Written and profusely illustrated
by the pseudonymous sailor "Zeek," this book must be seen to be
believed--it combines principles of Zen, martial arts, yoga,
nautical lore, and much more in a tour de force of life management.
"Dictionary of the American West: Over 5,000 Terms from Aarigaa! to
Win Blevins's "Dictionary of the American West" is the definitive
source for cowboy linguists. Thousands of entries cover the odd and
beautiful words that entered English by way of the many cultures of
the West. Especially interesting are the words from Native American
languages, Russian, Hispanic, Norwegian, and other tongues modified
to fit trading lingo and slang, and still present in American

"James? A decent fellow, if something of a naffin." Insults are
always more satisfying when they have to be pondered over before
anyone can take offense. Novobatzky and Shea, authors of "Depraved
English," offer a cornucopia of insults, putdowns, and invectives to
raise your vituperations to new heights.

"In myth," says Egyptian history expert Jo Forty, "the visible
world is merely the visual part of an inestimably more complicated
system which involves other elements not immediately visible to
human observation." In "Mythology: A Visual Encyclopedia," Forty
pulls back the veil of this complicated system, introducing us to
the gods and heroes of cultures from Oceania to Scandinavia.

on the Internet or who consistently buys high-tech stocks) and
