Former Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie has just released a new dieting book called “Are You Going to Finish That?”

Intermittent eating has become a new diet fad, and Christie’s new book teaches the basics of how to do it effectively, as well as shares personal tips and tricks he learned following the diet he embarked on leading up to his announcement as a 2016 Republican Presidential candidate.

Christie lost a total of 85 pounds on the program.

Steve Bannon assisted Christie in writing the book, and also contributed several dieting strategies for following the intermittent eating program.

“Intermittent eating isn’t a diet. It’s a way of life. It’s counterintuitive, but the results speak for themselves,” Christie explained during his autograph signing for the book at a New Jersey Barnes and Noble. “There’s a reason I’m always photographed eating food. It’s because I’m always eating food. You’ve seen pictures of me eating nachos, corndogs, donuts, funnel cakes, and that’s the real me. I’m telling it like it is. If you want to lose weight, this book has the answers.”

Christie made news recently by ruling out running for President in 2020, but hasn’t ruled out running for public office in 2024. Christie, 56, recently signed a 2-year contract as a spokesman for Nabisco.

Timothy Ferriss Releases New Book ‘The 40-Hour Workweek’

Tim Ferriss is back with a new bestseller, The 40-Hour Workweek.

Twelve years ago, Timothy Ferriss struck a chord with his bestselling The 4-Hour Workweek, which has sold over a million copies to date. The tagline for that book was “Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich.” The year was 2007, and his book helped open the door to a new way of thinking about work. But, for a frame of reference, iPhones didn’t even exist when The 4-Hour Workweek was released. Let that sink in. Chances are, you weren’t even on Facebook in 2007.

A lot has changed since then…a lot. And, Ferriss is striking a chord again. The tagline for his new book is “Escape Toxic Entrepreneurship, Live in One Place, and Join the New Normal.”

“Boring is cool again. This book explains why. Highly recommended.” – Ben Stein, writer, lawyer, actor, and commentator

In a nutshell, people became so consumed with entrepreneurship that they forgot how to work. People became so consumed with not being tied down anywhere that they had no community. And, people became so addicted to the dopamine loops of iPhones, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Reddit that they became like walking zombies, in a borderline state of clinical psychosis. That’s why Ferriss’ new book is such a breath of fresh air.

The 40-Hour Workweek was officially launched at a book signing last night at a San Francisco Barnes and Noble hosted by Tim Ferriss, with special guest Ben Stein who gave commentary on the book.

“Bueller…Bueller…Bueller…the reality is that there’s no such thing as a 4-hour workweek. It’s a fantasy. Life is about hard work. There are no shortcuts,” Stein explained. “The princess isn’t in another castle. She isn’t anywhere. She’s not real. Nothing is real. There is only suffering.”

Fyre Festival Documentaries for Dummies Book Now Available Following Netflix and Hulu Documentaries

The most popular failed music festival of the decade is the latest subject of the newest Dummies book.

Last month, both Netflix and Hulu released documentaries at the same time about the Fyre Festival, the failed luxury music festival that took place in the Bahamas in 2017.

“People were confused when two documentaries were released at the same time last month, so we felt like it was the perfect subject of a Dummies book to help people differentiate between the two documentaries,” Billy McFarland, co-founder of the festival, said during a phone interview from prison.

People who watched the Netflix documentary then wondered what they missed in the Hulu documentary and vice-versa. Only people with subscriptions to both services were able to watch them both. And, with so many different people featured in the documentaries, it’s led many on a frantic Google search to discover where the people are now.

“What happened the Andy King? Where is he now? What is he doing? I must know!” someone tweeted using the hashtag #takeonefortheteam.

Ja Rule, Holla Holla rapper and co-founder of Fyre Festival, signed copies of the books at the official launch party at a New York City deli, where cheese sandwiches were served to everyone who bought a copy of the book.

In Fyre Festival for Dummies you’ll learn about the different documentaries that have been made about the Fyre Festival, the similarities and differences between the documentaries, and what the people featured in each of the documentaries are doing now.

Fyre Festival for Dummies is now available from Amazon.

Tidying Up’s Marie Kondo Releases New Book Dumbed Down for Americans

Marie Kondo is on a mission to bring peace and spark joy through home organization and decluttering.

Kondo, the creator of the KonMari Method, has gone from being a star in her home country of Japan to becoming a worldwide phenomenon. She has even transitioned to television personality with the launch of her recent Netflix show, Tidying Up With Marie Kondo, where the diminutive star helps American families declutter.

It was during the taping of that show when Kondo had the idea for the new book. “Americans are filthy, dirty pigs,” Marie told CBS This Morning through her interpreter. “They aren’t going to transform their homes. Half the time, they’re too lazy to even take a f***ing shower. I had to dumb things down. Way down.”

The new book outlines a modified KonMari Method, specifically for Americans, called the CoMonGeez Method. The CoMonGeez Method emphasizes small, daily progress over the grand overhaul of the KonMari Method. “It’s so easy, even an American can do it,” Kondo proclaims. The book is an instant hit. Gale Knutson of Minnesota has already seen results.

“I’ve been using the CoMonGeez Method for two weeks now,” Knutson proclaims, “and I’ve almost completely organized one whole drawer!”

Kondo’s new book is available from Amazon.

Francis Chan’s New Photography Book Features Pictures of Church Leaders Reading His Books at Starbucks

Author Francis Chan has done it again, challenging the Christian community with his latest bestseller, Pictures of People Reading My Books In Coffee Shops.

Chan has been a popular author since 2011 with the release of Crazy Love. That book about living out a life-changing, revolutionary Christian life, instantly struck a cord with American Christians looking for new books to take pictures of themselves reading while sipping $7 caffe lattes.  

With Pictures of People Reading My Books In Coffee Shops, Chan is leaning into the phenomenon – much to the delight of his readers. Kyle Donaldson, a longtime “Chan Fan”, has already posted 314 separate photos of himself drinking coffee while holding the book, unopened. Each post has been accompanied by the same three hashtags: #lifechanger, #wrecked, #isaidnofoam. “It’s really a calling,” says Donaldson. “I’m not just drinking a Grande iced 3-pump coconut milk white mocha; I’m doing the Lord’s work.”  

In the introduction to the book, Chan explains his motivation for writing it: “Christ has called us to be a light in the world. We are to be his witnesses wherever He sends us – whether that be a Starbucks in the heart of New York City or a Starbucks in a poor fishing village in  Bangladesh. Let the light on your phone shine, dear Christian, as you snap photo after photo of yourself reading my books while sipping on a caffe latte.”

Paraphrasing Jesus, Donaldson reiterates this sentiment: “They’ll know we are Christians by our Instagram posts.”

Mark Driscoll’s New Book Invites Christians to “Find God Through Blind Rage”

Celebrity preacher Mark Driscoll has released a new book about using anger to unleash the power of the Holy Spirit.

The fiery-tempered pastor of Trinity Church in Scottsdale, Arizona insists that be holy one must be mad. In this paradigm, belligerence and fury are earmarks of a Spirit-filled life. One need only look at Driscoll’s anger-fueled rants on YouTube to know that he practices what he preaches.

“Jesus ran through the temple courts with a whip, flipping over the tables of the money changers and calling down curses,” reads an excerpt from Driscoll’s book. “I do the same thing every time I go into Wal-Mart. And I’ve never felt closer to God.” Anger, of course, isn’t the goal in and of itself. It’s a tool to draw closer to God. “He’s [God’s] way up there in heaven,” Alec Baldwin explains in the forward to the book. “If you want Him to hear you, you’re going to have to yell.”

Anger Filled Jesus is available in hardcover and eBook. An audiobook, screamed by the author himself, is also available.

Gary Vaynerchuk’s New Book ‘Random Things I’ve Said In the Back of a Car’ is Now Available

Gary Vaynerchuk is the chairman of VaynerX, a media holding company, and the CEO of VaynerMedia, an advertising agency. But the average citizen probably knows Vaynerchuk from his mindless self-promotional YouTube videos where Vaynerchuk sits in the back of a taxi offering “advice” on how to become an entrepreneur.

Now GaryVee (as he is widely known) has compiled the information from all of those off-the-cuff incomprehensible rantings parading as wisdom into one book.

Chapters are arranged by year, make and model of the car Vaynerchuk was in when he said whatever random thing he said.

“It [the book] has changed my life,” reports John Mayer, musician and long-time fan of Vaynerchuk. “It’s changed the way I write music. Now I only compose while in the back of a Lyft. And it must be a foreign make, 2012 model year or later.”

The granddaddy of the shameless social media plug has been on a nationwide media tour to promote the book. Vaynerchuk will be stopping in 55 cities throughout the US, rolling down the window of his Uber, spouting some gibberish about hustle, reverse pyramids, and “crushing it” before rolling on to the next city.

Dale Carnegie is back with ‘How To Lose Friends and Alienate People On Facebook’

Dale Carnegie has finally released the long-awaited follow up to his classic self-help book.

Dale Carnegie wrote the book on developing relationships, both personal and professional, with his best-selling How To Win Friends and Influence People. Today that book – originally released in 1936 – is still considered a must read in the self-help genre. Carnegie hopes to strike gold once again with the follow-up.

“The original book was released more than 8 decades ago. It was a different world,” Carnegie explains in the introduction to the new volume. “Back then, we didn’t have social media. Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Hell, we didn’t even have computers back then. Or televisions. Or Frisbees. . . Oh, to be 48 years old again!”

The new book takes into account all of these technological advances; bringing Carnegie to the startling, yet inevitable conclusion that in our hyper-connected, information overload society developing true and lasting relationships is nearly impossible.

“The more connected we become online,” Carnegie asserts, “the more we unravel as a community. As a society.” Does Carnegie believe there is hope to turn things around? In a word: No. As Carnegie laments in the final words of the book: “I wish I were dead.”

My Review of Rick Warren’s New Book ‘The Purpose Driven Sex Life’

Rick Warren has built a career by offering Christian answers to the most basic human question: Why am I here? But as his new book explains: “Once you figure that out, the next question is usually: How, where, when, and with whom can I get it on?”

While Warren’s previous book The Purpose-Driven Life set out to answer the former question, the just published follow-up seeks to answer the latter, more important question.

The book follows the same 40-day format as his previous book, with exercises each day for couples to perform together. And with chapters like “Full-time Missionary Position”, “Praying Mattress”, and “Mutual Sanctification,” there is sure to be something for every Christian. There is even an Instagram account for the book, to make the experience more interactive. “Readers can share their photos to let us see how they are progressing,” says Darcy Kinsey, the book’s social media manager.

This is no sexual free-for-all, though, assures Rick Warren, a conservative Christian pastor. “It is God’s intention that sex be between one man and one woman in the covenant of marriage,” Warren said in a recent television interview. “And God’s intention for that man and woman is that they go at it like rabbits.”

In the end, Warren’s book is an attempt to remove some of the stigma and shame that Christians often feel in regards to sex.

“I just want believers to let go of their inhibitions,” Warren says. “We should be Arminians in the boardroom, and Calvinists in the bedroom.”
