Writer, editor, musician, style guru and man-about-town Glenn O'Brien has penned the ultimate in guy-style advice (his monthly magazine column, "The Style Guy," is a natural precursor). As noted in the Los Angeles Times Magazine, "Rather than a list of do's and don'ts, How to Be a Man is part philosophy treatise, part sartorial self-help manual and part call to arms for the Renaissance man. It's a clever collection of essays on topics ranging from grooming ('Man Is a Fur-Bearing Mammal') and accessorizing ('Jewels and the Man') to behavior ('How to Fight Like a Man') and death ('How to Exit'), all in prose that's entertaining and fun to parse." We couldn't agree more-this one's a must-read that should be on every guy's coffee table. Import.
For decades, around the world, it has been said of certain men, “He’s so GQ.” The magazine has become synonymous with style, but to “be GQ” is so much more than just being outwardly fashionable. It also means to be cultured, to have taste, to have panoramic interests, from politics, art, and literature to film, music, travel, and of course fashion. It’s about being a part of the cultural moment— actively engaging in the here and now with curiosity and an appetite for what’s new. Mining the magazine’s extensive photographic archives, GQ Men captures the essence of what it means to look sharp and think smart —the magazine’s mantra— by showcasing the men who embody the GQ spirit: Legends like Paul Newman, Robert Redford and Bob Dylan; legends in the making, like George Clooney and Denzel Washington; the new guard of young, handsome hot shots, like Michael Fassbender, Channing Tatum, and Ryan Gosling; musicians from Kanye West to Paul McCartney, leaders like Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, fashion designers from Ralph Lauren to Thom Browne, plus artists (Jeff Koons), athletes (LeBron James), and funnymen from Jimmy Fallon and Will Ferrell to Zach Galifianakis. GQ Men celebrates all the facets of the modern American man—smart and stylish both inside and out. 11 x 14 in – 28 x 35 cm 304 pages 200 illustrations hardcover in a luxury slipcase

From acclaimed historian Lawrence Goldstone comes a thrilling narrative of courage, determination, and competition: the story of the intense rivalry that fueled the rise of American aviation. The feud between this nation’s great air pioneers, the Wright brothers and Glenn Curtiss, was a collision of unyielding and profoundly American personalities. On one side, a pair of tenacious siblings who together had solved the centuries-old riddle of powered, heavier-than-air flight. On the other, an audacious motorcycle racer whose innovative aircraft became synonymous in the public mind with death-defying stunts. For more than a decade, they battled each other in court, at air shows, and in the newspapers. The outcome of this contest of wills would shape the course of aviation history—and take a fearsome toll on the men involved. Birdmen sets the engrossing story of the Wrights’ war with Curtiss against the thrilling backdrop of the early years of manned flight, and is rich with period detail and larger-than-life personalities: Thomas Scott Baldwin, or “Cap’t Tom” as he styled himself, who invented the parachute and almost convinced the world that balloons were the future of aviation; John Moisant, the dapper daredevil who took to the skies after three failed attempts to overthrow the government of El Salvador, then quickly emerged as a celebrity flyer; and Harriet Quimby, the statuesque silent-film beauty who became the first woman to fly across the English Channel. And then there is Lincoln Beachey, perhaps the greatest aviator who ever lived, who dazzled crowds with an array of trademark twists and dives—and best embodied the romance with death that fueled so many of aviation’s earliest heroes. A dramatic story of unimaginable bravery in the air and brutal competition on the ground, Birdmen is at once a thrill ride through flight’s wild early years and a surprising look at the personal clash that fueled America’s race to the skies. Praise for Birdmen “A meticulously researched account of the first few hectic, tangled years of aviation and the curious characters who pursued it . . . a worthy companion to Richard Holmes’s marvelous history of ballooning, Falling Upwards .” — Time “The daredevil scientists and engineers who forged the field of aeronautics spring vividly to life in Lawrence Goldstone’s history.” — Nature “The history of the development of an integral part of the modern world and a fascinating portrayal of how a group of men and women achieved a dream that had captivated humanity for centuries.” — The Christian Science Monitor “Captivating and wonderfully presented . . . a fine book about these rival pioneers.” — The Wall Street Journal “[A] vivid story of invention, vendettas, derring-do, media hype and patent fights [with] modern resonance.” — Financial Times “A powerful story that contrasts soaring hopes with the anchors of ego and courtroom.” —Kirkus Reviews “A riveting narrative about the pioneering era of aeronautics in America and beyond . . . Goldstone raises questions of enduring importance regarding innovation and the indefinite exertion of control over ideas that go public.” — Publishers Weekly starred review Book Details: Author: Lawrence Goldstone Publisher: Ballantine Books Format: Hardcover Publication Date: 5/6/2014 Pages: 448
