The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying UpMarie Kondo
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The book that sparked a revolution and inspired the hit Netflix series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo : the original guide to decluttering your home once and for all. ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL BOOKS OF THE DECADE—CNN Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles? Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you’ll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever. The KonMari Method, with its revolutionary category-by-category system, leads to lasting results. In fact, none of Kondo’s clients have lapsed (and she still has a three-month waiting list). With detailed guidance for determining which items in your house “spark joy” (and which don’t), this international bestseller will help you clear your clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.

All-American DogsAndrew Hager
From historian-in-residence at the Presidential Pet Museum, Andrew Hager, comes a fond, fascinating, and often surprising look at the dogs who were the best friends of the presidents, featuring unforgettable photographs. President Biden’s German shepherds, Major and the late Champ, are the latest in a long line of presidential dogs. Dating all the way back to George Washington, dogs have been constant companions to nearly all of America’s presidents. Of the past 46 presidents, 31 have had at least one dog at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Organized by historical eras, All-American Dogs will take readers through the captivating history of the White House’s four-legged friends, the impact they had on their owner-in-chiefs, and, ultimately, American history. From the assassination of President’s Lincoln’s dog after Lincoln’s own death to President’s Hoover’s Belgian shepherd, King Tut, who helped President Hoover win the election after appearing in a campaign photo, these furry members of the first family often had a lasting impact on the administrations that kept them. As historian-in-residence at the Presidential Pet Museum, Andrew Hager will include original research and rare photographs from the National Archives to trace the history of America’s first dogs. From post-Revolutionary dogs, to Civil War era dogs, to Cold War dogs, Hager will show the differences and similarities of how our nation viewed man’s best friend. Readers will learn not only past presidents’ dogs in each historical era, but also the cultural history of dogs as pets, and the ways in which Americans’ relationships with dogs has evolved over the past two centuries.

Your Dog Is Your MirrorKevin Behan
Even those dog lovers who feel that they understand their pets better than anyone else are sometimes bewildered by a mystery behavior or response. This, asserts Kevin Behan, is because our dog’s actions and attitudes are driven not by what we say or do but by what we feel. Two provocative conclusions follow from Behan’s argument: Because of unresolved emotions in our past, our dog may well know us better than we know ourselves. And because dogs know us “by heart,” they can help us connect with and heal our buried issues. Based on dogs evolving as cooperative group members, Behan’s approach offers practical ways to decode and change behaviors; and profound ways to learn from the mirror our dogs provide. “ Your Dog Is Your Mirror is a very thought-provoking book that will force you to reconsider who we are and who dogs are and why we are so attracted to one another. Kevin Behan calls upon his extensive experience with our best friends and makes the important point that in the emotional interactions between dogs and humans, it’s not the human reading the human in the animal but the animal reading the animal in the human. Whether you agree with Kevin’s provocative theories or not, the age-old adage that no one knows you like your dog clearly rings true. I learned a lot from this wide-ranging and unique book.” — Marc Bekoff , University of Colorado, author of The Emotional Lives of Animals and The Animal Manifesto

The Forever DogRodney Habib & Karen Shaw Becker
#1 New York Times Bestseller In this pathbreaking guide, two of the world’s most popular and trusted pet care advocates reveal new science to teach us how to delay aging and provide a long, happy, healthy life for our canine companions. Like their human counterparts, dogs have been getting sicker and dying prematurely over the past few decades. Why? Scientists are beginning to understand that the chronic diseases afflicting humans—cancer, obesity, diabetes, organ degeneration, and autoimmune disorders—also beset canines. As a result, our beloved companions are vexed with preventable health problems throughout much of their lives and suffer shorter life spans. Because our pets can’t make health and lifestyle decisions for themselves, it’s up to pet parents to make smart, science-backed choices for lasting vitality and health. The Forever Dog gives us the practical, proven tools to protect our loyal four-legged companions. Rodney Habib and Karen Becker, DVM, globetrotted (pre-pandemic) to galvanize the best wisdom from top geneticists, microbiologists, and longevity researchers; they also interviewed people whose dogs have lived into their 20s and even 30s. The result is this unprecedented and comprehensive guide, filled with surprising information, invaluable advice, and inspiring stories about dogs and the people who love them. The Forever Dog prescriptive plan focuses on diet and nutrition, movement, environmental exposures, and stress reduction, and can be tailored to the genetic predisposition of particular breeds or mixes. The authors discuss various types of food—including what the commercial manufacturers don’t want us to know—and offer recipes, easy solutions, and tips for making sure our dogs obtain the nutrients they need. Habib and Dr. Becker also explore how external factors we often don’t think about can greatly affect a dog’s overall health and wellbeing, from everyday insults to the body and its physiology, to the role our own lifestyles and our vets’ choices play. Indeed, the health equation works both ways and can travel “up the leash.” Medical breakthroughs have expanded our choices for canine health—if you know what they are. This definitive dog-care guide empowers us with the knowledge we need to make wise choices, and to keep our dogs healthy and happy for years to come.

Puppy SocializationMarge Rogers
"Puppy Socialization: What It Is and How to Do It" defines and demystifies the most important thing you can do for your puppy: socialization. The authors don't just tell you what you need to know about socialization. They show you with dozens of photographs and exclusive linked videos (a live internet connection is needed to view the videos). You'll see other owners socialize their puppies under the guidance of a nationally certified dog trainer and behavior consultant. These real-life examples of socialization show you what to do when things go well and when they don't go so well. You’ll learn about: •The magical time. Did you know that there is a special time in a puppy's life when he is primed to accept new things? The authors tell you when that time is, when that socialization window starts closing, and how a little effort by an owner during that time can save heartache later. •Canine body language. Puppies and dogs are talking all the time—with their body language. Learn to tell when a puppy or dog is relaxed and happy, a bit nervous about something, or outright fearful. •Myth-busting. There's a lot of advice out there about socialization and not all of it is good. Some common myths can actually cause a puppy harm. The authors give you the most up-to-date information on puppy socialization and put some harmful myths to rest. •Socializing a puppy during COVID-19. Puppies have so much to get used to: people, environments, noises, and more. The authors provide strategies for keeping humans and puppies safe while socializing puppies, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. •What supplies are needed during socialization. The authors provide checklists of things owners need when socializing a puppy at home and away from home. Dr. Sara Bennett, Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Behaviorists, says, “This book is a great resource for any new pet parent. The information is based in the most up-to-date evidence-based science of behavior and learning. It is also presented in an upbeat and easy-to-understand manner, with a healthy dose of real-world stories that helps the reader connect with the authors.” Leslie McDevitt, renowned behavior consultant, trainer, and author of the Control Unleashed series of books and DVDs, says, “This is the most definitive resource on all things Socialization that you could ever ask for.” Dr. Karen London, dog behaviorist and author of Treat Everyone Like a Dog, says, “I’m hopeful that this book will be widely read, and its advice followed. It’s the perfect resource for everyone who has anything to do with raising well-adjusted, happy puppies, and its publication is good news all around.” Dr. Alanna Lowry, veterinarian and nationally ranked dog agility competitor, says, “Up until now, a comprehensive guide to this essential task has been lacking. … Your puppy deserves the best start in life. This book allows you to provide it!” The authors teamed up to share this information with readers because most people don't know exactly what socialization is or how to do it. And both of them see the fallout of socialization gone wrong all the time. Rogers and Anderson each bring their own perspective to this groundbreaking work. Rogers is certified through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers as a Dog Trainer and also a Behavior Consultant. She specializes in behavior modification for fearful and aggressive dogs and the prevention of fear and aggression through socialization. Anderson is an award-winning writer who is passionate about giving owners accurate information so they can make informed training choices. Together they created this unique, visual guide of the realm of puppy socialization. Every reader will learn something new. Book chapters are: 1.Socialization: Things to Know Before You Get Started 2.Pairing and Priorities 3.How Puppies Learn and How Socialization Fits In 4.Understanding Dog Body Language 5.Socialization! Starting at Home 6.Socialization Away from Home 7.Fear and Special Challenges 8.What’s Next?
Elevate your personal style, trim your belongings, and transform your life, one room at a time, with this visionary lifestyle and home organization book from professional organizing expert, Shira Gill. “Warm, funny, and direct, Shira builds you up while helping you edit down to the best version of yourself.”—Stacy London, New York Times bestselling author of The Truth About Style As a professional home organizer with clients ranging from students to multi-millionaires, Shira Gill observed that clutter is a universal stress trigger. Over the years she created a signature decluttering and organization process that promotes sustainability, achieves lasting results, and can be applied to anyone, regardless of their space or lifestyle. Rather than imposing strict rules and limitations, Shira redefines minimalism as having the perfect amount of everything—for you— based on your personal values and the limitations of your space. Now, in Minimalista, Shira shares her complete toolkit for the first time, built around five key steps: Clarify, Edit, Organize, Elevate, and Maintain. Once you learn the methodology you'll dive into the hands-on work, choose-your-own-adventure style: knock out a room, or even a single drawer; style a bookshelf; donate a sweater. Shira teaches that the most important thing you can do is start, and that small victories, achieved one at a time, will snowball into massive transformation. Broken into small, bite-sized chunks, Minimalista makes it clear that if the process is fun and easy to follow, anyone can learn the principles of editing and organization.

Clutter can: • Overwhelm the senses • Consume space • Drain energy from our surroundings • Cause stress and anxiety This book will show you how to lighten up so you can walk into your home and be surrounded only by the things you love. Living in a minimalistic way means clearing the clutter from your life to focus on what’s truly important. Chances are, 75% of the things in your home are no benefit to your life at all. You’ll also find that throwing out a few garbage bags feels even better than therapy. Why do you hold onto things? Here are just some of the reasons: • Security—but the paradox is that the more we cling, the more frustrated and overwhelmed we feel. • Addiction—shopping is a high and the novelty wears off. • Approval—keeping material representations of who we are is one way we show off. • Identity—we identify with what we own so that’s why we’re upset when something is stolen or broken. • Obligation to others—we please others by keeping gifts and inherited things we don’t really like or need. By letting go of possessions that no longer serves us, we can • Let go of old beliefs • Open ourselves up to new opportunities and relationships • See your home, your life for what they really are • Need less and do more • Cultivate meaningful relationships • Be more in tune with yourself in a meditative space • Stop shopping as a form of therapy • Stop wasting money • Restore clarity • FIND WHAT YOU REALLY VALUE When you have inner clutter, it expands to your environment. So when you live in a clean and soothing environment, it can only benefit your inner life. Don’t let the word minimalism scare you. Minimalistic living is not about getting rid of modern advancements and living in the stone age. It’s only about keeping things that are useful, meaningful and add value to your life. While it does not place importance on material things and lavish living, minimalism is also not about denying yourself of the things you need. The guide is divided by different rooms and topics to make it easy and practical to refer to. • Entryway • Kitchen • Living Room • Bathroom • Bedroom • Children’s Rooms • Teen Rooms • Garage • Basement • Attic • Garden • Office • Computer & Technology • Closets • Mail • Sentimental Objects • Photos • Cards & Letters • Music • People This book also helps you • Recognize Clutter • Declutter, clean & organize your home room by room • Sell your things for profit • Shop for a minimalist wardrobe • Get your family on board • Declutter digital content and computer files • Go car-free or car-lite • Surround yourself with people who add value to your life • Maintain your space once you’ve minimalized Living with less is the first step to a peaceful mind. It makes space for the new to come in. Buy the book, put it into practice and welcome positive change into your life now.

From Fearful to Fear FreeMarty Becker, Mikkel Becker & Lisa Radosta
Almost every dog owner has a pet who suffers from fear, anxiety, and stress (FAS). They are the underlying cause of many concerning behaviors such as excessive barking, aggression, destructive behaviors, and house-soiling. They are also the source for deterioration of the human-animal bond, and can make a trip to the veterinarian, pet groomer, or boarding facility miserable for pet and owner alike. Left untreated, these negative experiences can lead to devastating consequences and permanent damage. Unfortunately, many well-meaning owners misinterpret or overlook the often subtle signs of emotional injury and turmoil, or think that the pet will simply "outgrow" it. This leads to unnecessary trauma and suffering. Common FAS triggers include: Finally, there's help. From Fearful to Fear Free is based on the groundbreaking Fear Free program embraced by tens of thousands of veterinary healthcare professionals and hundreds of thousands of pet owners (fearfreepets.com and fearfreehappyhomes.com). This is the first and most authoritative book on the subject of reducing FAS and increasing "happy and calm" in dogs. Since pets communicate nonverbally, this book will help you recognize if your pet is suffering from FAS. By knowing your dog's body language, vocalizations, and changes in normal habits, you can make an accurate diagnosis and take action to prevent triggers or treat the fallout if they do happen. You'll learn: The three veterinary coauthors and one highly respected pet trainer have a combined 88 years of experience in the trenches of veterinary medicine, with specialties in behavior and training. By using their cutting-edge techniques, you'll have pets that are happier, healthier and live a longer, fuller life.
The Holmes InspectionMike Holmes
The Holmes Inspection will be the definitive guide to smart home-buying and home-selling for Canadians. It’s often said that a home is the biggest investment most people will ever make, yet many buyers, when considering a house, spend less time on examining its pros and cons than they might on a head of lettuce at the supermarket. Why? A big part of the problem is knowledge: without an understanding of house construction, materials and finishing, many people are overwhelmed and decide to forego the inspection process altogether, or leave it entirely in the hands of a home inspector—who might not be much of an expert either. The Holmes Inspection gives readers the tools they need to buy smart and sell smart. Beginning with the most basic rationale for inspecting prior to buying, the book shows readers what to expect from the houses they’ll see, what qualities to look for, and the red flags to watch out for. As well, they’ll learn what a home inspector can and can’t do, get advice on how to find a good home inspector, and find out about options to the “professional” home inspection route. Using sidebars, checklists—and the savvy, no-nonsense style that Mike Holmes fans know and love—The Holmes Inspection is like having Mike himself along for the ride of making that biggest of investments: your own home.
A Beginner’s Guide to Raising Sheep: Don’t Be Dumb About Raising Sheep…Because They Aren’tDarla Noble & John Davidson
The Basics of Raising Sheep - Don’t Be Dumb About Raising Sheep…Because They Aren’t Table of Contents Introduction Chapter 1: Being Prepared… it’s More than Just a Motto Chapter 2: Fencing Chapter 3: The Three Essentials—Food, Water and Shelter Chapter 4: I Pick Ewe Chapter 5: Hello, my Name is Shepherd Conclusion Author Bio Introduction Most people consider sheep to be cute, wooly…and dumb. These same people would be wrong. The truth of the matter is sheep are cute and wooly, but as for being dumb…while it is true that some breeds of sheep are less resilient than others and don’t do very well in the mothering department, the word ‘trusting’ is a much more appropriate adjective to describe these wonderful (yes, wonderful!) animals. There are a few other adjectives which aptly describe sheep: manageable, functional and profitable. Whether you have a couple of acres or a couple of hundred acres—sheep have much to offer in the way of an agricultural venture as long as you do it right. That’s where this book comes in. “I cannot tell you how many times I’ve turned people away wanting to buy sheep; telling them to come see me when they are actually ready to buy.” –Darla Noble That’s what this book is all about; getting you ready to raise sheep. Based upon the assumption that you’ve decided that’s what you want to do, we will tell you: *How to prepare yourself and your property to raise sheep *What you need to raise sheep *How to select sheep for your farm *The primary functions of a shepherd (that’s you!)
