Drug Dependency & Recovery

Have you ever been asked, “Why Don’t You Drink Alcohol?” and felt like you were being judged as if you were an alien from outer space? The concept of asking someone why they don’t want the night to end in complete chaos and to write off the next three days broke, depressed and puffy-skinned seems crazy – yet alcohol is the only drug we have to justify not taking!

Maybe this sounds familiar…….

You’re on a night out, slaying life sober, and some moron asks you, “Oh – so why don’t you drink alcohol?” So naturally, you feel obliged to tell them why. But you’re not quite at that stage of oversharing every reason why you don’t want to add liquid chaos back into your life, and you struggle, so you say you’re on anti-biotics (again)!

What if there was an empowering little book that contained 101 ways to say I quit drinking alcohol that could diffuse any awkward responses?

In her first quit lit book, Sienna Green shares her unusual story of going alcohol-free and how being asked why she doesn’t drink alcohol for the millionth time motivated her to write 101 Ways To Say I Quit Drinking Alcohol.

Physics of Energy

A revelatory look at our national power grid–how it developed, its current flaws, and how it must be completely reimagined for our fast-approaching energy future.

America’s electrical grid, an engineering triumph of the twentieth century, is turning out to be a poor fit for the present. It’s not just that the grid has grown old and is now in dire need of basic repair. Today, as we invest great hope in new energy sources–solar, wind, and other alternatives–the grid is what stands most firmly in the way of a brighter energy future. If we hope to realize this future, we need to reimagine the grid according to twenty-first-century values. It’s a project which forces visionaries to work with bureaucrats, legislators with storm-flattened communities, moneymen with hippies, and the left with the right. And though it might not yet be obvious, this revolution is already well under way.
