How to Clone the Perfect Blonde

Clones of Brad Pitt and Cameron Diaz. A robotic housekeeper who makes your bed every morning. A permanent size 6 figure. These are all just fantasies . . . or are they?

How much do you really know about gene therapy, artificial intelligence, and bionic modification?

In How to Clone the Perfect Blonde, award-winning journalists Sue Nelson and Richard Hollingham show how cutting-edge science will eventually make your wildest dreams come true. With amazing anecdotes and breezy humor, they describe the latest discoveries in biotechnology, quantum mechanics, cryogenics, nanotechnology, wormholes, and much more-complete with ironic “instructions” on How to Build a Robotic Servant, How to Live Forever, How to Turn Back Time, and more. You’ll be amazed to learn how many of these “fantasies” are already well within our reach.

In the tradition of bestselling pop-science books such as The Physics of Star Trek and How to Build a Time Machine, this entertaining read explores the science of science fiction-and proves that anything is possible!

SUE NELSON is an award-winning science correspondent for BBC News.

RICHARD HOLLINGHAM is a journalist and presenter for BBC Radio.

Geeky Dreamboats

Behold, the Geeky Dreamboats, the guilty pleasures of millions of women who ought to know better. Consider Michael Cera, who charmed us in Juno with his golden running shorts and knee-high tube socks. Or Justin Long, the only actor cute enough to play a Mac computer. Or poor little Tobey Maguire, who injured his back while filming Spider-Man 2 because he insisted on doing his own stunts. These unhealthy obsessions are the spiritual core of Geeky Dreamboats, a full-color celebration of the awkward men women love to love, with photographs and profiles of everyone from John Krasinski and Beck to Joe Jonas and Wes Anderson. We’ve also packaged the book with an adorable puffy cover that makes these dreamboats even dreamier. Go ahead and squeeze their cheeks – we won’t tell anyone!

Lacey Soslow is the vice president of the Philadelphia chapter of the Michael Cera Fan Club. She lives in Philadelphia with her very own geeky dreamboat and their dog Seymour.

Sarah O’Brien is an author and editor who lives in Philadelphia. She is available for publicity and John Krasinski, or Ryan Gosling, whoever calls first.

The Quotable Douchebag


Vanity. Arrogance. Cluelessness. Ego. These are the defining traits of douchebags everywhere – and now their most outlandish statements have been compiled into a single volume. The Quotable Douchebag features dozens of boneheaded and tasteless remarks from scores of actors, musicians, athletes, and politicians, including:
David Hasselhoff: “There are many dying children out there whose last wish is to meet me.”
Gene Simmons: “[I] don’t believe there’s any difference between a monogamous and a polygamous relationship. Those are all just big words, like gymnasium.”
Sean Hannity: “I’ll tell you who should be tortured and killed at Guantanamo: every filthy Democrat in the U.S. Congress.”
And many, many more. Complete with photographs of these clowns in all of their chest thumping glory, The Quotable Douchebag is the perfect gag gift for anyone fed up with the men in her life.
MARGARET MCGUIRE lives in Philadelphia, the city voted the #1 ugliest city by Travel+Leisure magazine.
