The Sex Lives of Cannibals

**The laugh-out-loud true story of a harrowing and hilarious two-year odyssey in the distant South Pacific island nation of Kiribati—possibly The Worst Place on Earth.
**
At the age of twenty-six, Maarten Troost—who had been pushing the snooze button on the alarm clock of life by racking up useless graduate degrees and muddling through a series of temp jobs—decided to pack up his flip-flops and move to Tarawa, a remote South Pacific island in the Republic of Kiribati. He was restless and lacked direction, and the idea of dropping everything and moving to the ends of the earth was irresistibly romantic. He should have known better.
*The Sex Lives of Cannibals* tells the hilarious story of what happens when Troost discovers that Tarawa is not the island paradise he dreamed of. Falling into one amusing misadventure after another, Troost struggles through relentless, stifling heat, a variety of deadly bacteria, polluted seas, toxic fish—all in a country where the only music to be heard for miles around is “La Macarena.” He and his stalwart girlfriend Sylvia spend the next two years battling incompetent government officials, alarmingly large critters, erratic electricity, and a paucity of food options (including the Great Beer Crisis); and contending with a bizarre cast of local characters, including “Half-Dead Fred” and the self-proclaimed Poet Laureate of Tarawa (a British drunkard who’s never written a poem in his life).
With *The Sex Lives of Cannibals*, Maarten Troost has delivered one of the most original, rip-roaringly funny travelogues in years—one that will leave you thankful for staples of American civilization such as coffee, regular showers, and tabloid news, and that will provide the ultimate vicarious adventure.

Sex is not the Problem (Lust Is)

Lust isn’t just a guy problem – it’s a human problem. And unless we honestly confront it, lust will destroy our relationships and our lives. Joshua Harris, author of the runaway bestseller *I Kissed Dating Goodbye, *calls a generation bombarded with images of sexual sin back to the freedom and joy of holiness. This “PG-rated” book – straightforward without being graphic – speaks to those entrenched in lust or just flirting with temptation. Honestly sharing his own struggles, Harris exposes lust’s tactics and helps readers create a personal plan for fighting back. Men and women will find hope in God’s grace and learn the secrets to lasting change.
Neither sex nor sexuality is our enemy. We need to rescue our sexuality from lust so we can experience it as God intended.
Bestselling author Joshua Harris shows you how lust deceives you. Specific and honest without being graphic, this book-for both men and women-will guide you in creating a custom plan for fighting lust and celebrating purity.
**Praise for *Sex Is Not the Problem (Lust Is)
* * *
“For your joy and Christ’s honor, I commend this book to you. It is realistic, practical, and hope-giving.”
** *-John Piper, pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis
* **
“A beautiful blend of grace and truth. Joshua Harris raises high standards of holiness while carefully avoiding legalism. I highly recommend it.”
** *-Randy Alcorn, bestselling author of The Treasure Principle and The Purity Principle
* **
“I am very encouraged that my longtime friend Josh Harris has written a book about lust. May God use this book to keep many from allowing their minds to become ‘the devil’s playground.'”
** *-Rebecca St. James, singer/songwriter

**Story Behind the Book**
“I was preparing a message on lust when I realized that the book I wanted to consult hadn’t been written. That book would make it clear that only Jesus Christ can free us from the hopeless treadmill of shame and guilt that so many well-intentioned people end up on. It would instill a love for holiness and a hatred for sin without dragging the reader’s imagination through the gutter. And it would be for both men and women, because I’ve learned that lust isn’t just a guy problem-it’s a human problem.”

Sex at Dawn

“*Sex at Dawn* challenges conventional wisdom about sex in a big way. By examining the prehistoric origins of human sexual behavior the authors are able to expose the fallacies and weaknesses of standard theories proposed by most experts. This is a provocative, entertaining, and pioneering book. I learned a lot from it and recommend it highly.” — Andrew Weil, M.D. “*Sex at Dawn* irrefutably shows that what is obvious—that human beings, both male and female, are lustful—is true, and has always been so…. The more dubious its evidentiary basis and lack of connection with current reality, the more ardently the scientific inevitability of monogamy is maintained—even as it falls away around us.” — Stanton Peele, Ph.D.A controversial, idea-driven book that challenges everything you (think you) know about sex, monogamy, marriage, and family. In the words of Steve Taylor (*The Fall, Waking From Sleep*),*Sex at Dawn* is “a wonderfully provocative and well-written book which completely re-evaluates human sexual behavior and gets to the root of many of our social and psychological ills.”
**Recensie(s)**

Sex At Dawn has helped me understand myself and the world so much more clearly. — Ilana Glazer, co-creator of Broad City Sex At Dawn is the single most important book about human sexuality since Alfred Kinsey unleashed Sexual Behavior in the Human Male on the American public in 1948. — Dan Savage Funny, witty, and light … Sex at Dawn is a scandal in the best sense, one that will have you reading the best parts aloud and reassessing your ideas about humanity’s basic urges well after the book is done. — Newsweek Sex At Dawn challenges conventional wisdom about sex in a big way… This is a provocative, entertaining, and pioneering book. I learned a lot from it and recommend it highly. — Andrew Weil, M.D., author of Healthy Aging Sex At Dawn is a provocative and engaging synthesis… that has the added benefit of being a joy to read…. A book sure to generate discussion, and one likely to produce more than a few difficult conversations with family marriage counselors. — Eric Michael Johnson, Seed Magazine You clearly have an exciting book on your hands, whether people agree with it or not: these are issues that will need debating over and over before we will arrive at a resolution. — Frans de Waal, author of The Age of Empathy A wonderfully provocative and well-written book which completely re-evaluates human sexual behaviour and gets to the root of many of our social and psychological ills. — Steve Taylor, author of The Fall and Waking From Sleep One of the most original books I’ve read in years, Sex at Dawn manages to be both enormously erudite and wildly entertaining-even, frequently, hilarious. . . . A must-read for anyone interested in where our sexual impulses come from. — Tony Perrottet, author of Napoleon’s Privates This paradigm-shifting book is a thoroughly original discussion of the origins and nature of human sexuality… These authors have a gift for making complex material reader-friendly, filling each chapter with humor and passion as well as dozens of revolutionary insights. — Stanley Krippner, Ph.D. Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jetha have written the essential corrective to the evolutionary psychology literature… — Stanton Peele, Ph.D.

Sex and the Single Earl

**Their marriage was convenient. . .**
Simon St. James, fifth Earl of Trask, knows he could do worse in the marriage of convenience department. Sophie Stanton may be a bit of a social liability, with her ungovernable ways and flighty nature, but Simon has responsibilities as an earl that far outweigh happiness in the household. And as for happiness in the bedroom. . .he has to admit he sees Sophie’s potential in that arena. . .
**Their passion was not!**
But Sophie isn’t some bargaining chip to be traded, and she’s not about to let Simon St. James tell her how to live her life–even though she has nurtured a crush on the handsome young earl for as long as she can remember. If his idea of courtship is telling her what to do, then she is not interested, or at least she is trying not to be. But when his scolding words turn to scorching kisses, suddenly Sophie starts paying attention. . .

“A rare gem.” –Julianne MacLean, *USA Today* bestselling author
“Fast paced and difficult to put down.” –*Romantic Times*

Sex and Drugs and Sausage Rolls

It has always been John Omally’s secret ambition to become a rock star. In his youth he mastered air guitar and wardrobe-mirror posing, but he lacked that certain something. Talent. But at last an opportunity has arisen for John to get into ‘The Industry’. A band called Gandhi’s Hairdryer are looking for a manager, so all John has to do is persuade them that he is the new Brian Epstein. It should be a piece of cake. But – and there’s always a but – there is something rather odd about this band. Something other-worldly. It might be the lead singer, whose voice has the power to heal. Might she be an angel, perhaps? Or could she be the Devil in disguise? Because, after all, the Devil does have all the best tunes. And this is Brentford.
In this, his final offering of the twentieth century, Robert Rankin returns to the town of his birth, the friends of his youth and one of the loves of his life: Rock Music.

Seventeen Contradictions and the End of Capitalism

Seventeen Contradictions and the End of Capitalism by David Harvey
“*What I am seeking here is a better understanding of the contradictions of capital, not of capitalism. I want to know how the economic engine of capitalism works the way it does, and why it might stutter and stall and sometimes appear to be on the verge of collapse. I also want to show why* *this economic engine should be replaced, and with what.*” —from the Introduction
To modern Western society, capitalism is the air we breathe, and most people rarely think to question it, for good or for ill. But knowing what makes capitalism work—and what makes it fail—is crucial to understanding its long-term health, and the vast implications for the global economy that go along with it.
In* Seventeen Contradictions and the End of Capitalism*, the eminent scholar David Harvey, author of *A Brief History of Neoliberalism*, examines the internal contradictions within the flow of capital that have precipitated recent crises. He contends that while the contradictions have made capitalism flexible and resilient, they also contain the seeds of systemic catastrophe. Many of the contradictions are manageable, but some are fatal: the stress on endless compound growth, the necessity to exploit nature to its limits, and tendency toward universal alienation. Capitalism has always managed to extend the outer limits through “spatial fixes,” expanding the geography of the system to cover nations and people formerly outside of its range. Whether it can continue to expand is an open question, but Harvey thinks it unlikely in the medium term future: the limits cannot extend much further, and the recent financial crisis is a harbinger of this.
David Harvey has long been recognized as one of the world’s most acute critical analysts of the global capitalist system and the injustices that flow from it. In this book, he returns to the foundations of all of his work, dissecting and interrogating the fundamental illogic of our economic system, as well as giving us a look at how human societies are likely to evolve in a post-capitalist world.

Seven Up

The killer is a little too close to home… Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum must make a devil’s bargain to get the help she needs in Seven Up, the seventh laugh out loud adventure in the Stephanie Plum series. The perfect read for fans of Sue Grafton and Harlan Coben. Raves for Janet Evanovich’s bestselling novels: ‘Razor sharp’ (Sunday Express); ‘Non-stop laughs with plenty of high jinks’ (USA Today); ‘Pithy, witty and fast-paced’ (The Sunday Times). What Stephanie Plum loves about being a bounty hunter: it annoys her mother and she can wear jeans to work. What Stephanie Plum hates about being a bounty hunter: she has to bring in her grandmother’s geriatric, mobster boyfriend who has been leaving dead bodies in his shed…if she can find him. On top of that, she’s got a missing misfit to find, the dog is eating everything in sight and master bounty hunter Ranger wants one night with Plum from dusk to dawn. She might want to rethink the whole bounty hunter thing… What readers are saying about Seven Up: ‘Janet Evanovich has a remarkable ability to create humorous characters and even funnier incongruous habits for them’ ‘The central characters provide endless entertainment’ ‘The humour is excellent and the larger than life characters never tire – the ending leaves you gagging for more!’
