Meet Mike Greenberg, the popular host of ESPN Radio’s Mike and Mike in the Morning, the highest-rated drive-time sports talk show on the dial. To his three-million-plus listeners, Greeny is the guy who’s equally as comfortable dissecting zone defenses as he is discussing cashmere sweaters. He’s been to Super Bowls and World Series, All-Star Games and Final Fours. He’s interviewed Michael Jordan, Joe Montana, and Wayne Gretzky. He gets paid to enthuse about sports, which means he’s the envy of most men in America. This is the hilarious, sometimes touching, and endlessly entertaining debut of one of America’s fastest-rising sportscasters, a wry and revealing look at one man’s good-hearted but mistake-prone attempt to grow up before his children do. Marriage, fatherhood, manhood, fame, athletes, crazed aunts with gambling problems, the true significance of sports, the worst possible thing to say in a room full of pregnant women–no topic is beyond his reach. But don’t take our word on it, read what Greeny has to say about: • Dating: “People who reminisce fondly about dating are blocking out all the disasters and focusing only on the few great nights. If that is all you choose to remember, fine. But be aware that no experience is without good moments. I’m sure during the sacking of Rome there were a few decent nights; maybe they put on a play.” • Life on the road: “Wife + television = no sleep.” “No wife + no television = no sleep.” “Wife + no television = sleep.” “No wife + television = porn.” • Keeping things in perspective: “Never assume you know more than the guy in the camouflage tux.” • And, of course, marriage: “All of us are married to women who think we’re idiots.” Whether he’s talking trash on the radio or talking dirty diapers over a fancy dinner, Greeny’s determined to reconcile two halves of a whole. So if your enthusiasm has ever been curbed, or you’re feeling remote without the remote, or you’re just wondering what exactly goes on in a guy’s brain, Why My Wife Thinks I’m an Idiot will be a source of comfort and unadulterated laughter. From the Hardcover edition.

All You Could Ask For, debut novel by Mike Greenberg, cohost of ESPN's Mike and Mike in the Morning, is a tender and insightful story of friendship and love, heartbreak and renewal, played out in the lives of three unforgettable women. Brooke has been happily married to her college sweetheart for fifteen years. Even after the C-section, the dog poop, the stomach viruses and the coffee breath, Scott always winks at her in just the right moments. That is why, for her beloved, romantic, successful husband’s fortieth birthday, she is giving him pictures. Of herself. Naked. Newlywed Samantha learns of her husband’s cheating heart when she finds the goods on his computer. High-powered career woman Katherine works with heartbreaker Phillip, the man who hurt her early on in her career. Brooke, Samantha, and Katherine don’t know each other, but their stories are about to intertwine in ways no one could have imagined. And all three are about to discover the power of friendship to conquer adversity, the satisfaction of unexpected delights, the incredible difference one human being can have on other lives--and that they have all they could ask for, as long as they have each other.

Hear crisp sounds of the hornbill in the cool air. Listen to the morning symphony that greets you as you enter the front gate. Then, step onto a leafy path that leads to a secret world of animals, each of whom you won’t want to forget, here at Zoo Atlanta. Over five days we meet a menagerie of magnificent animals—pandas, elephants, gorillas, meerkats, flamingos and more—alongside the longtime animal lover, scientist, and researcher Caitlin O’Connell. With inside access to the guidance and knowledge of their beloved zoo caretakers and with stunning photographs, we are able to see the day-to-day marvels—and sometimes misfortunes—behind the animals’ enclosures that often go unseen by the everyday zoo visitor. In this example of narrative nonfiction at its best, O’Connell has created a bridge to wild, a rare chance to look beyond the zoo and to inspire guests to see for themselves just how special the animals we share our world with are.

If you love dogs and baseball-- and want to know what it's REALLY like to be the Bat Dog for the Trenton Thunder, the New York Yankees' Double-A minor league team-- this book is for you! After all, how many dogs work in a baseball stadium, are cheered by thousands of adoring fans-- and "rub noses" with many of the biggest stars in the game? DERBY! My Bodacious Life in Baseball is the exclusive, long-awaited autobiography of the Trenton Thunder's funny, famous four-legged baseball philosopher-- who just happens to be a golden retriever named Derby. The fans know him best from his public role: carrying players' bats from home plate back to the dugout during games. But behind the scenes at ARM & HAMMER Park, Derby is so much more than a Bat Dog. He's the young baseball players' unofficial coach, mentor, loyal friend, and "team psychologist". Whether you hit a walk-off homer, or strike out at the bottom of the 9th, Derby is always there to give you a friendly nudge of encouragement with his cold, wet nose. The Thunder's perennial All-Star, Derby is the furry face of the franchise and the team's true MVP (Most Valuable Pup). He's also the reigning king of a three-generation dynasty of Thunder Bat Dogs that began with his beloved, fondly remembered father, Chase. Derby follows in Chase's legendary pawsteps and-- as the "world's foremost expert on baseball and human behavior"-- doles out advice to his own adorable puppy and heir apparent Bat Dog, Rookie. Inside this lavishly illustrated 205-page gift book, which was created and published with the permission and generous cooperation of the legendary Trenton Thunder, you'll also find: * Derby's amazing story and insights. * Literally HUNDREDS of never-before-seen COLOR PHOTOS by award-winning sports photographer Staton Rabin, providing a rare, candid inside-the-dugout peek at top Yankees prospects on the cusp of major league superstardom. Many of these rookies have since made it to "the Big Show", playing for the Yankees or other MLB teams. So if you're a true fan of the game, you'll know their names. * Cameo appearances by Mariano Rivera and Reggie Jackson. * Mini-bios of the top players from the Trenton Thunder's historic 20th anniversary season, which featured many of the most gifted Yankees prospects in more than a decade. * And, of course, lots of Bat Dog and puppy pictures. Narrated in bodacious style by Derby himself and perfect for baseball-savvy tweens (if they can just pry the book away from YOU long enough to read it!), this autobiography is a unique, witty and poignant dog's-eye-view of the summer game and the remarkable human beings who play it. These young athletes spend years of their lives chasing their individual dreams of Big League stardom, but, thankfully, never forget that it's all about supporting their teammates-- and getting the win, today. With subtle themes about friendship between people of all different races and backgrounds, the importance of teamwork, and adjusting to change during the seasons of life, DERBY! My Bodacious life in Baseball is a book that young people-- especially fans of the Trenton Thunder and New York Yankees-- can savor and grow with over time. It not only captures iconic images of baseball's most celebrated dog and his family-- but also candid moments from the early careers of young pro baseball players who just might be destined to become legends of the game. This unique memoir is both a fun dog's "tail", and a treasure trove of memorabilia for baseball-crazy parents to share with their children and grandchildren. "Derby! Get the bat!"
