Words of wisdom from Roger Sterling? We're in. As fans of Mad Men will now, Sterling was working on his book — Sterling's Gold ($12) — during the last season, filling it with observations on life, business, women, success, drinking, and even New York City, all with Sterling's signature wit. [via]
Who better to discuss the fragile nature of human life than a member of the undead? While he might not be a literal zombie, Life by Keith Richards ($16) only reaffirms the notion that he's done enough drugs over his 60+ years to preserve himself long into the afterlife. Covering ground from his childhood and first musical interests through becoming a Rolling Stone, tax exile, husband, father, and eventually big-screen pirate, Life has more insight to offer than you might think.
Built for an active lifestyle, the All Day Every Day Pant is more stylish than traditional sweats, and more comfortable than any pair of jeans. In a huge shift away from the baggy, boring sweatpants you only break out in private around the house, Public Rec has created a leisure pant that is not only better fitting than any sweats you've had because they come in numbered waist and length sizing, but are also made with an ultra-soft, durable nylon and spandex fabric blend that wicks away moisture. You've always wanted to wear sweats in public without looking like you've given up, and the All Day Every Day Pant gives you outdoor style paired with indoor comfort to make that dream a reality.

Everyone loves winning, but let's face it: almost everyone has also come up a little short one time or another. The First Book of Seconds ($10) celebrates 220 almost-champions, from the second color TV broadcast signal to the second-longest-running TV show, each honorably named alongside those bastard winners. Also included are cameos by the Honda Civic, remote control pioneer Robert Adler, and Elvis, who came in second a lot more often than you might think.
You may think that by knowing what episode of The Simpsons is getting ready to come on by Bart's chalkboard phrase, you know a lot about the show. But you still don't hold all the knowledge of Simpsons World ($90). This 1,200 page, 8.8 pound gargantuan devotes at least two pages to every single episode of The Simpsons' epic 20-season run, and also features new artwork, a complete filmography of "Itchy & Scratchy," and a list of every "D'oh" or "Mmm..." Homer has ever uttered, which is kind of like keeping track of every time Steve Jobs has ever said "boom."
