  • Proof: The Science of Booze

    It's one thing to enjoy the nuances of a great drink, be it a pint of beer, a glass of wine, a nip of scotch, or a fully realized cocktail. It's quite another to understand the science behind how it's made, why it tastes like it does, and why you're drinking it. Proof: The Science of Booze takes a look at alcohol production from a unique perspective, beginning with its discovery thousands of years ago, tracing its evolution all the way up to today's most modern liquor laboratories, and examining both the science behind its creation and the psychology and neurobiology that makes us like it. Best when read with a drink.

  • The World of Private Islands

    Unless you've won a record lottery, were born into an incredibly wealthy family, or happened to be stranded on a chunk of land and have declared it your own empire (hey, it happens), odds are you're not going to be owning your own island anytime soon. But that doesn't mean you can't enjoy looking at them. Which is what The World of Private Islands is for. Curated by Farhad Vladi, this gorgeous book takes a look at private isles large and small, from small lumps of rock in the middle of lakes to extraordinary Caribbean retreats. Ideal coffee table material for aspiring supervillains moguls.
