For those not familiar with Karl Welzein, President and CEO of Bad Boy City, USA, he's a guy who's fed up — with work, his wife Anne, his kids, his roommate Dave — but he still manages to live the all-freedom lifestyle (24/7/365, open on Sundays). This epic midlife crisis celebraish story plays out episodically in 140 characters at a time, detailing Karl's exploits and screw-ups, from top shelf margs at 'Bees to falling asleep on the crapper at work. We're not sure how it'll translate to the printed page, but we can't wait to find out.

The Conquest of Everest: Original Photographs from the Legendary First Ascent ($27) takes you inside this legendary event through photographs and other materials climber and photographer George Lowe, who was with Hillary and Norgay on that first expedition. In addition to the 167 photos and illustrations, the book also features contributions from Reinhold Messner, Sir Chris Bonington, Peter Hillary, Doug Scott, Stephen Venables, and Norbu Tenzing Norgay and the late Sir Edmund Hillary themselves.
