Apartment Therapy: The Eight-Step Home Cure

Apartment Therapy: The Eight-Step Home Cure

Apartment living can be tough, especially when it comes to subjects like entertaining and decorating. Our friends over at the Apartment Therapy blog have been helping us along with these tasks, and now you can bring some of their wisdom to your coffee table with Apartment Therapy: The Eight-Step Home Cure by Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan ($11). The book looks at everything from lighting to removing clutter, and does it with an attitude that actually makes you want to get up off your lazy butt and do something. [via]

  • Company by Max Berry

    Company ($15) is the latest novel by our new favorite contemporary satirist, Max Berry. In the 350-page work, he takes office politics and banal tasks to an extraordinarily extreme degree, but it's not so twisted from reality that it doesn't apply to your own 9-5. The story line follows naive business school grad Jones through his relatively short career at Zephyr Holdings. His first task is to find out what the company (not just his department, which only deals with other internal departments) actually does. Not only does no one know, they can't grasp why Jones would be curious. A perfect book if you enjoy The Office, Dilbert or Office Space.



  • Backyard Ballistics

    Growing up, we certainly had our share of fun — and got into a fair share of trouble — with our potato guns. Now we can rebuild better, stronger guns with the help of Backyard Ballistics ($11). Plans for building potato guns, a match-powered rocket, a tennis ball mortar, a pneumatic missile, and more are included. Just make sure not to bust out your neighbor's windows with your "toys."
