NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER FULLY REVISED & UPDATED, WITH A NEW EPILOGUE "Delightful."-The Economist There's Santa Claus, Shakespeare, Mickey Mouse, the Bible, and then there's Star Wars. Nothing quite compares to sitting down with a young child and hearing the sound of John Williams's score as those beloved golden letters fill the screen. In this fun, erudite, and often moving book, Cass R. Sunstein explores the lessons of Star Wars as they relate to childhood, fathers, the Dark Side, rebellion, and redemption. As it turns out, Star Wars also has a lot to teach us about constitutional law, economics, and political uprisings. In rich detail, Sunstein tells the story of the films' wildly unanticipated success and explores why some things succeed while others fail. Ultimately, Sunstein argues, Star Wars is about freedom of choice and our never-ending ability to make the right decision when the chips are down. Written with buoyant prose and considerable heart, The World According to Star Wars shines a bright new light on the most beloved story of our time.

American Trivia Quiz Book

Just How Much Do You Know About Our Great Nation?

Recent surveys reveal that more Americans can name at least two members of the Simpsons' cartoon family than can name the first four American presidents in order. Richard Lederer and Caroline McCullagh have written the American Trivia Quiz Book to make your knowledge of our nation's history at least match the nation's knowledge of The Simpsons.

The American Trivia Quiz Book brims with fascinating facts about the people, places, and events that make our nation great, with a series of fun and informative quizzes on subjects ranging from Columbus to baseball. There are questions about presidents and first ladies, explorers and inventors, heroes and poets. Impress (and stump) your friends with your knowledge of all things American. In the process, you'll find our national gifts of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to be even more precious.

Richard Lederer, Ph.D., is the author of more than 40 books about language, history, and humor, including his best-selling Anguished English series and Presidential Trivia and American Trivia. He has been profiled in magazines as diverse as The New Yorker, People, and the National Inquirer, and is founding cohost of A Way with Words on public radio. Dr. Lederer's syndicated column, "Lederer on Language," appears in newspapers and magazines throughout the United States. He has been elected International Punster of the Year and Toastmasters International's Golden Gavel winner.

Caroline McCullagh, coauthor of American Trivia, earned a master's degree in anthropology from the University of California, San Diego. Her diverse writing projects include four novels, a cookbook, a student opera (under the auspices of San Diego Opera), and nine years of monthly garden book reviews for the San Diego Horticultural Society. She also teaches creative writing to seniors two days a week.

Questions You're Not Supposed to Ask provides enlightenment on life's taboo subjects, with a healthy dose of laughter thrown in for good measure. The aim of the book is to arm the ordinary person with the sort of knowledge that is jealously guarded by the Powers That Be and so release the individual from the chains of ignorance. Some of the questions refer to bodily functions (Why is sex so much fun?), some debunk government falsehoods (Why do we pay tax?) while others delve into the supernatural (Is there more to life than meets the eye?) and others simply explain how things operate (What is physics?). Loads of fascinating information and a highly entertaining read from start to finish.

This book contains hundreds of `strange but true' facts and anecdotes about Scottish history. Arranged into a miniature history of Scotland, and with bizarre and hilarious true tales for every era, it will delight anyone with an interest in Scottish history
