A History of Inventing in New Jersey: From Thomas Edison to the Ice Cream Cone
A History of Inventing in New Jersey: From
Many Americans are familiar with Thomas Edison's "invention factory" in Menlo Park, where he patented the phonograph, the light bulb and more than one thousand other items. Yet many other ideas have grown in the Garden State, too--New Jerseyans brought sound and music to movies and built the very first drive-in theater. In addition to the first cultivated blueberry, tasty treats like ice cream cones and M&Ms are also Jersey natives. Iconic aspects of American life, like the batting cage, catcher's mask and even professional baseball itself, started in New Jersey. Life would be a lot harder without the vacuum cleaner, plastic and Band-Aids, and many important advances in medicine and surgery were also developed here. Join author Linda Barth as she explores groundbreaking, useful, fun and even silly inventions and their New Jersey roots.

Winning Ugly: A Visual History of the Most Bizarre Baseball Uniforms Ever Worn
Winning Ugly: A Visual History of the Most
Baseball, our national pastime. All fans have great memories of their teams. We also remember those things that we wish we could forget: the errors, the mental mistakes . . . and the ugly uniforms.In an ode to those eyesores, Todd Radom has collected and chronicled some of the swing-and-misses we've seen on the baseball diamond. Remember when the Chicago White Sox thought wearing shorts in 1977 was a good idea? How about when the Baltimore Orioles wore their all-orange jerseys in 1971? Do you remember the 1999 "Turn Ahead the Clock" campaign? Or the most recent all-camo jerseys of the San Diego Padres?Yes, there is much to talk about when it comes to the odd uniform decisions teams have made over the years. But just like there's love out there for French bulldogs or Christmas sweaters, ugly uniforms hold a warm place in the heart of all baseball fans, and Winning Ugly is just that: an ode to our favorites from today and yesterday that bring smiles and sighs to all baseball fans.Sure they didn't affect wins and losses (unless you mention Chris Sale), but a fan's love and ire goes well beyond the current standings. So whether your team appears in Winning Ugly or not, fans of the sport will enjoy reliving the moments most teams would like to forget.

Who Was Jackie Robinson?
Who Was Jackie
As a kid, Jackie Robinson loved sports. And why not? He was a natural at football, basketball, and, of course, baseball. But beyond athletic skill, it was his strength of character that secured his place in sports history. In 1947 Jackie joined the Brooklyn Dodgers, breaking the long-time color barrier in major league baseball. It was tough being first- not only did "fans" send hate mail but some of his own teammates refused to accept him. Here is an inspiring sports biography, with black-and-white illustrations throughout.

A Visual Compendium of Baseball Jerseys Print Poster
Hey batter batter, take a swing at this rundown of pinstripes and pantaloons throughout baseball history! Featuring 121 hand-drawn uniforms, this chart of long-ball livery goes around the horn from 1869 to the current season--and includes an array of grand-slam getups including the old-timey togs of the 1873 Elizabeth Resolutes, the striped-and-starred "tequila sunrise" duds of the '74 Houston Astros, and the rich but pennant-deficient sartorial history of the Chicago Cubs. A loving ode to the ensembles of America's Favorite Pastime, this compendium of home and visiting vestments also serves as a visual record of fashion trends in baseball over the last 150 years-from the rise and fall of stirrups to the push toward powder blue and pullovers. Forget peanuts and Cracker Jacks-this is the perfect purchase for the pitcher and/or belly itcher in all of us. Printed on 100lb archival stock and packaged in a Pop Chart Test Tube.

Opening Skinner's Box: Great Psychological Experiments of the
Through ten examples of ingenious experiments by some of psychology's most innovative thinkers, Lauren Slater traces the evolution of the century's most pressing concerns―free will, authoritarianism, conformity, and morality.Beginning with B. F. Skinner and the legend of a child raised in a box, Slater takes us from a deep empathy with Stanley Milgram's obedience subjects to a funny and disturbing re-creation of an experiment questioning the validity of psychiatric diagnosis. Previously described only in academic journals and textbooks, these often daring experiments have never before been narrated as stories, chock-full of plot, wit, personality, and theme.

Football for a Buck: The Crazy Rise and Crazier Demise of the USFL
Football for a Buck: The Crazy Rise and
From a multiple New York Times bestselling author, the rollicking, outrageous, you-can’t-make-this-up story of the USFL The United States Football League—known fondly to millions of sports fans as the USFL—was the last football league to not merely challenge the NFL, but cause its owners and executives to collectively shudder. It spanned three seasons, 1983-85. It secured multiple television deals. It drew millions of fans and launched the careers of legends. But then it died beneath the weight of a particularly egotistical and bombastic owner—a New York businessman named Donald J. Trump. The league featured as many as 18 teams, and included such superstars as Steve Young, Jim Kelly, Herschel Walker, Reggie White, Doug Flutie and Mike Rozier. In Football for a Buck, the dogged reporter and biographer Jeff Pearlman draws on more than four hundred interviews to unearth all the salty, untold stories of one of the craziest sports entities to have ever captivated America. From 1980s drug excess to airplane brawls and player-coach punch outs, to backroom business deals, to some of the most enthralling and revolutionary football ever seen, Pearlman transports readers back in time to this crazy, boozy, audacious, unforgettable era of the game. He shows how fortunes were mad...

Ragland This is our "Ragland" family's lineage. It explains why we're called, "Ragland", how we connect to the great Kings of the world, who these people were, why they did what they did, and how we came to America. I spent over seven years finding all I've found and I found it because someone always kept track of our history. I wove it together like puzzle pieces. I even laughed out loud sometimes. Then, once I found who they were, I wanted to know what they did and why they did it. I hoped, if I knew this, I might actually know them a little bit. Then, the search became an obsession. The more I looked, the more I found, the more I found, the more I wanted to know. This is our family. I hope you'll be blessed by knowing them as much as I am. MARGO "RAGLAND" REID Margo is a musician and a screenwriter who lives on a farm in Tennessee with 6 horses, 32 goats, 3 dogs and one really bossy cat.
