The Whole Beast

The Whole Beast

You know the phrase "whole hog?" Well, London-based chef Fergus Henderson takes it literally. Author of The Whole Beast: Nose to Tail Eating ($15), Henderson believes in using virtually every part of a plant or animal in your cooking to reduce waste, resulting in such tasty yet repulsive-sounding dishes as Rolled Pig's Spleen, Roast Bone Marrow and Parsley Salad, and Blood Cake and Fried Eggs. Yummy. Perfect for the Bizarre Foods fan in your life, even if the fan happens to be you.

  • Rework

    Do you care, at all, about your work? Then pick up a copy of Rework ($13). Penned by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson of 37signals, makers of Backpack — which we use every day to help write Uncrate — and other fine software products, Rework is filled with to-the-point rules on how to work more efficiently and be successful, with prose that's as succinct and direct as the rules themselves. No jargon, no bullshit, just great advice from a couple of the web's smartest guys. A must read.

  • Cowboy: The Ultimate Guide to Living Like a Great American Icon

Packed with a variety of knowledge nuggets, including recipes, instruction, interviews, trivia, and photographs, this 200+ page guide will have you ropin' steers and chuckin' wagons in no time. Or something along those lines — just think Jack Palance in City Slickers and you'll get the idea.
