Michiko Kakutani loves Lark and Termite, reviewed in today's New York Times. You will notice that our web site says we do not have copies. That's because it officially goes on sale today and our quantities aren't updated daily. We have taken a decent stand on the book and you will find it face-out in our Schwartz Select section up front.
Also, Dr. Melinda Beck recaps some new diet books in the Wall Street Journal on the first page of the Personal Journal section. If you read my favorite diet book, Brian Wansink's Mindless Eating, you will know that many diets are successful due to monotony. Drink enough lemon juice or Sassy Water (ginger, lemon, cucumbers, as recounted in Flat Belly Diet!) and you're sure to be bored with eating soon enough.
Other books mentioned in Ms. Beck's column:
--I Can Make You Thin, by Paul Mckenna
--The Lemon Juice Diet, by Theresa Cheung
--The Lunch Box Diet, by Simon Lovell, coming to the U.S. in June
--Younger (Thinner) You Diet, by Eric R. Braverman
Next time you're in one of the shops and you run into me, ask me about my secret life as a diet promoter.
