Toponymy (the scientific study of placenames) need not be dry science. Here Prof. Ashley (whom Distinguished Prof. Kelsie B. Harder in prefatory remarks calls "indeed the foremost authority in the study of names") ranges widely over Amerindian names of Massachusetts and several other states, the British-influenced placenames of Connecticut, saints' names on the land of Cornwall, French surnames for the English derived from placenames, the varied placenames of the east (Vermont) and of the Midwest (Iowa and of Kansas) and the west (California) and the south (Louisiana), the commercial and cultural implications of New York City neighborhood names (SoHo and so on), placenames in catch phrases and folklore, evocative placenames in poetry, house names here and abroad, Montreal placenames of a bilingual city, street names of the Vieux Carré of New Orleans (which has been Spanish and French as well as American), the mestizismo of Mexico as reflected in the names derived from three cultures (aboriginal, Spanish colonial, and modern Mexican), what's wrong with the Spanish placenames of California (as indicative of how placenaming can go wrong and how the US government handles names of US places), and the book concludes with a comparatively few pages of useful information that can greatly enhance the tourist's travels in exotic Turkey (with no more knowledge of the language than is given here). There has never been any book which goes as deeply and entertainingly into so many aspects of placenaming and examines with copious examples and wit the unique power given to Adam and all his descendants to name the world in which they live, to claim it and order it and celebrate it.

A Far-From-Average Sports Book for the Average Joe Go beyond the 24/7 online highlights and celebrate the hilarious humor and heartwarming heroics of the sports world in this all-star collection of trivia, quotes, and anecdotes. For example... Did You Know? The Chicago Bears were originally known as the Staleys before being moved from Decatur, Illinois. The Decatur Staleys, as the team was known, was the pride of the city that holds the motto, "The Soybean Capital of the World." Houston Astros infielder Julio Gotay played every game with a cheese sandwich in his back pocket. Others had less cheesy items in their back pockets. Pitcher Sean Burnett had a poker chip in his, while pitcher Al Holland opted for a two-dollar bill. While accepting his NBA MVP award in 2014, basketball star Kevin Durant focused his remarks on his mother, Wanda Pratt. "The odds were stacked against us, a single parent with two boys by the time you were 21 years old," Durant said. "You made us believe, you kept us off the street, put clothes on our backs, food on the table. When you didn't eat, you made sure we ate. You went to sleep hungry; you sacrificed for us. You're the real MVP." Packed with incredible facts, quirky moments, and heart-warming stories, The Average Joe's Super Sports Almanac will delight fans of all ages and makes a great gift for the sports buff in your life - whether superfan or average Joe.

This book came into being from the author's exasperation at the ignorance of many users of the Thoth tarot deck. They prefer to go by their "intuition" rather than study Crowley's companion book to the deck, The Book of Thoth. "It's too dense" they cry. "I'm not interested in these philosophies; I just want to read Tarot." The above sentence is the greatest insult to Aleister Crowley, the creator of the Thoth deck. For the deck's purpose was to convey the higher mysteries to the diviner. Crowley intended for the deck never to be sold separately from the Book of Thoth. And so, heart full of elitist snobbery and sense of obligation to Crowley, the author of this book set out to spoon feed this dense material to the masses, without watering down its contents. In the spirit of Crowley who sought to enlighten the world, the author has added his own contribution to Crowley's legacy, out of duty. It was due to Crowley's belief in freedom of information, during an era of politics and secrecy, that the author was able to get his own hands on the gem of all spiritual writing, the Book of Thoth.
