A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. A hilarious tour of the state of our mother tongue, from the people who bro ught you Am I Alone In Thinking . . . ?, Sign Language is a collection the most inappropriate, confusing, poorly translated and mind-bogglingly bizarr e signs from around the world. Few things amuse and appal Telegraph readers as much as the abuse, misuse, mistranslation and outright mangling of the English language. So, for the p ast three years the Telegraph has run a weekly feature inviting members of the public to send in photographs of menus, health and safety warnings, roa d signs, adverts, headlines and personals columns ?? anything in which the language has gone egregiously, hilariously and, usually, unintentionally w rong. Entitled Sign Language, the published selection of the very best images has become one of the newspaper's most popular features, attracting over 300,0 00 online visitors every week and attracting thousands of submissions from around the world. Now, we present the very best of Sign Language ?? both seen and unseen ?? and offer a timely warning about the imperilled state of modern English.

BRUCE! : MY ADVENTURES IN THE SKIN TRADE AND OTHER ESSAYS, Vilanch, Bruce
63 Vilanch, Bruce BRUCE! : MY ADVENTURES IN THE SKIN TRADE AND OTHER ESSAYS
Jeremy P. Tarcher 2000 1585420468 / 9781585420469 Hardcover Fine/Fine 
First things first--this is not a book about the skin trade. Vilanch confes ses the title is an attention-getting device in the introduction. Having go t our attention, Vilanch, a leading supplier of speeches for the Academy Aw ards show, assaults our sensibilities by disclosing that "everything you he ar on [the] Oscar-cast has been written, rewritten, re-rewritten," etc. No! All that gush is, in fact, scripted? Obviously this guy is "out there," wh ich is good, as far as this book is concerned. In addition to disillusionin g us about Hollywood once again, Vilanch takes on the Motion Picture Associ ation of America; Branson, Mo.; and even gay pride. And he reflects on the speechwriter's life. Regular readers of Vilanch's column in the national ga y magazine, The Advocate, will flock to this collection, and chances are re aders new to him won't be disappointed, either. Mike Tribby

NAPTIME IS THE NEW HAPPY HOUR: AND OTHER WAYS TODDLERS TURN YOUR LIFE UPSID E DOWN, Wilder-Taylor, Stefanie
64 Wilder-Taylor, Stefanie NAPTIME IS THE NEW HAPPY HOUR: AND OTHER WAYS TODDLERS TURN YOUR LIFE UPSID E DOWN
Simon Spotlight Entertainmen 2008 1416954139 / 9781416954132 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Stephanie Wilder-Taylor, author of the hit book Sippy Cups Are Not for Char donnay, tackles the tumultuous toddler years in this witty parenting guide. Motherhood-it's not for wimps. Once the zigzagging hormones and endless, bleary-eyed exhaustion of the fir st year have worn off, you're left with the startling realization that your tiny, immobile bundle has become a rampaging toddler, complete with his or her very own, very forceful personality. Just as Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay helped debunk decades of parentin g myths to offer honest advice for the first year, Naptime Is the New Happy Hour is a voice of reason for every woman facing questions such as: Will r efined sugar make my toddler's head explode? Is it wrong to have a cocktail at two in the afternoon? And what exactly is a Backyardigan? With biting wit and boatloads of common sense, Stefanie Wilder-Taylor addresses all these concerns and more. Whether it's planning easy outings that are fun for both of you (fact: your child will find the local Target just as scintillating as the Guggenheim), dishing the dirt on preschool TV (those mothers who swear their kids don't watch television? Liars or psychos, every one), or perfecting the art of the play date, readers will find advice, anecdotes, and a reassuring sense of camaraderie to help them survive-and even thrive-during each hilarious, frustrating, and amazing moment.
