Serious Eats

We're big fans of the seriously stupendous blog Serious Eats, so when we found out they were bringing out a book, we quickly hopped on the pre-order wagon. Serious Eats: A Comprehensive Guide to Making and Eating Delicious Food Wherever You Are ($20) sidesteps traditional cookbooks by offering up not only recipes — and there are plenty here — but also tips on where to go for the most mouth-watering morsels in town, from Ft. Lauderdale to Fargo.

  • Brooklyn Brew Shop's Beer Making Book

    Did The Oxford Companion to Beer whet your appetite for brewing? Well, the Brooklyn Brew Shop's Beer Making Book ($14) has all the information you'll need to start your own microbrewery at home. It offers up 52 seasonal recipes that are designed to be made in small batches, as well as tips on brewing, growing hops, and pairing the right beer with the right food. It also has four gluten-free recipes within its pages, so your Celiac-suffering neighbor will at least have something to drown his sorrows when his beloved Browns manage once again to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

  • West by West

    Most autobiographies tend to be rather tame affairs — so we were pleasantly surprised to find that West by West ($18) is anything but. Penned by hoops legend Jerry West and Jonathan Coleman, the book tells West's journey from his childhood and college years in West Virginia though his 40-year stint with the Lakers, chronicling both his greatest triumphs and his intermittent battles with depression along the way. Pretty gripping stuff, especially for a guy who literally became an icon.
