BOOK EXCERPT:

The #1 New York Times Bestseller Jessica reveals for the first time her inner monologue and most intimate struggles. Guided by the journals she's kept since age fifteen, and brimming with her unique humor and down-to-earth humanity, Open Book is as inspiring as it is entertaining. This was supposed to be a very different book. Five years ago, Jessica Simpson was approached to write a motivational guide to living your best life. She walked away from the offer, and nobody understood why. The truth is that she didn’t want to lie. Jessica couldn’t be authentic with her readers if she wasn’t fully honest with herself first. Now America’s Sweetheart, preacher’s daughter, pop phenomenon, reality tv pioneer, and the billion-dollar fashion mogul invites readers on a remarkable journey, examining a life that blessed her with the compassion to help others, but also burdened her with an almost crippling need to please. Open Book is Jessica Simpson using her voice, heart, soul, and humor to share things she’s never shared before. First celebrated for her voice, she became one of the most talked-about women in the world, whether for music and fashion, her relationship struggles, or as a walking blonde joke. But now, instead of being talked about, Jessica is doing the talking. Her book shares the wisdom and inspirations she’s learned and shows the real woman behind all the pop-culture cliché’s — “chicken or fish,” “Daisy Duke,” "football jinx," “mom jeans,” “sexual napalm…” and more. Open Book is an opportunity to laugh and cry with a close friend, one that will inspire you to live your best, most authentic life, now that she is finally living hers.

BOOK EXCERPT:

In An Open Book, this veteran of five marriages, innumerable friendships, practical jokes, horses, love affairs, and intellectual obsessions tells his own story in his own way. It is direct, unadorned, complete—and wonderful reading. Here is Huston on stage for the first time at age three, dressed in an Uncle Sam suit; in the ring at eighteen, boxing for small purses; selling his first short story to H.L. Mencken; down and out in London; acting in Greenwich Village; going to Hollywood to work for Jack Warner as a writer; directing his first picture, The Maltese Falcon; filming dangerous combat scenes in the Aleutians and in Italy; and making over forty years worth of movies, from Key Largo to The Man Who Would Be King. And the stories behind those movies are often as exciting as the movies themselves, featuring such notables as Hemingway, Selznick, Sartre, Hepburn, Monroe, Flynn, Welles, Gable, Bogart, Clift, and Brando. An Open Book is alive with John Huston's presence: his boldness and daring, his candor and style, and the spontaneity with which he followed his dreams to their ultimate destination, the well-deserved acclaim of a world enchanted by his work.

The OSI protocol suite (an internationally standardized set of rules for computer communications) offers a unique promise: it has the potential to provide a political and technical solution to world-wide networking. Computers--from supers to workstations and PCs, from the executive suite to the laboratory, and from Palo Alto to London, or anywhere--can all share a common set of rules for communicating. But, with any emerging technology, there are numerous questions to be answered and issues to be addressed. The Open Book is designed to examine those complex questions and issues and provide a balanced set of perspectives.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The aim of this commmentary on John's Apocalypse is to render it readable and appealing. Built around the orderly presentation of the author's translation of John's Greek text, the commentary enables the reader to perceive and appreciate the literary unity, coherence, and definable theological emphasis of John's composition. Intended strong points are a comprehensible analysis of the carefully wrought, rhythmic structure of John's visions, of his understanding of the "end-time" in which we live, and of dominant thematic aspects such as presenting God's Holy War of Liberation as the Gospel. The commentary tries to do justice to John's own intention of providing an open, "unsealed" book for a variety of readers.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The Open Book has seemed to be more of a myth then a real book. For decades it has been out of print and trying to find an original is difficult. So difficult that when I did find one in the basement of my favorite used books store I snatched it up not believing what I had found. But how could I just stash it on my bookshelf along with all the other great out-of-print books where no one else could enjoy it? So I put my publishing skills to work and decided to make The Open Book available to all those who want the inside scoop on the tricks that gamblers, crooks, grafters and con men have used over the years and still use today. Oh, don't think that just because this book was published long ago that what's inside is not useful. In fact, if one were so inclined to be dishonest they would find lots of ways to part a fool from his money just like they did "in the day." "Fore Warned is Fore Armed." That is the motto of this book. Learn all about the little and big tricks of the trade that Officer Johnson learned from years on the beat. He had seen it all and wrote down for you the tricks these gamblers, crooks, grafters and con men used to "befuddle the mind of the gullible public." Reading what's inside is like going through your attic, topics are loosely grouped together but there is so much in these groups that it's hard to believe. I decided to keep it in it's original format out of respect for history buffs and book collectors and because it would take a gigantic effort to bring any kind of modern "order" to this book. Inside you will find secrets on how card men use cross lifting, cold decks, crimping, shading and scratch work are just a few of the techniques used by card cheats that he explains. There is also a remarkable Master Key method on how to read any deck of marked cards. He also goes into great detail on how card sharks mark just about every make of card there is/was. The welcher and the check thief are not forgotten either. Hole card switching. Counting cards. Oh, and don't forget the dice men. Craps. Loaded dice. The Chinese Box Secret. Misspotted dice. Suction dice. Transparent loaded dice. And the list goes on. Oh, and did I mention the old stand by The Three Shell Game? Read about Soapy Smith in Alaska and his demise. Or read about a Shell Operator and how he makes and handles the walnut shells. Pea Pool is exposed. Dice tops are exposed. The Blow-off. Pitch. Bridge Whist. Pinochle. Solo. And of course Poker tricks. All these tricks and more are fully exposed. Since this is a period piece, there are also stories about "Spirit Fakirs" and tricks of the Master Magicians. Raps on the table. Table lifting. Spirit lights. Fortune tellers. Did I mention Magic? Card tricks. Fire eating. The needle trick. And more. Dead Man's Mail Order Swindle. The Pawn Shop Game. The book finally finishes off with the story of a real life racketeer called Dutch Schultz, New York's Public Enemy No. 1 and how he was murdered including some gruesome photos of the dead body. But I'm just scratching the surface. If you have any interest in any of these subjects you just have to get this book. Just be aware that the language can be very direct and unabashedly "earthy." And if you are easily offended by racial slurs then don't buy it. I thought about taking out a couple of images just because they may offend sensitive folk and maybe delete some more "blunt" talk but in an effort to remain true to the times and the author I left them in so just be aware that while I don't agree with his choice of language or adhere to his same viewpoint I respect this right to express himself as he sees fit. So again, if this is something that would be offensive to you then please buy another book. Thank you.
