I'm Not Gonna Lie: And Other Lies You Tell When...

From one of the most celebrated and beloved comedians and actors of our time, George Lopez, comes this hilarious, touching, and often wacky chronicle of life after 50. George Lopez just hit the half-century mark and the reset button on his life. Newly single and ready to embrace life, George was excited to turn 50. It would be a welcome new phase in his life, a chance to say goodbye to a decade that included a kidney transplant and a divorce. But when he looked around a room full of his childhood friends, all gathered to celebrate his birthday, many now bald or overweight, it suddenly hit him that he was old. What happened? And more importantly, what was he going to do about it? George learns the hard way that when you turn 50, everything changes. You pull a muscle in your sleep. You avoid mirrors at all costs, and always, always wear a robe. You have to schedule an appointment to have sex. You have to dye your hair and buy a bathtub with a door. As George learns to embrace life after 50, he invites listeners into his world, sharing the ups and downs of getting older - from his relationship with a much younger woman to a bizarre session with a pet psychic, to a trip behind the scenes at his tumultuous two years at Lopez Tonight, to an intimate look at his sacred ground, the golf course - and, for the first time, he reveals in moving detail, the story of the battle for his life against kidney disease. I’m Not Gonna Lie will make you laugh at yourself, cry about yourself, and look at turning 50 in a way you never would’ve imagined - through the eyes of George Lopez. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George Lopez. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/peng/002102/bk_peng_002102_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Fascinating…Unbelievable…Gross! These are just a few of the responses readers will hear when they impress their friends with facts from the quirky new book of body trivia, Why You Shouldn't Eat Your Boogers & Other Useless or Gross Information About Your Body, by Francesca Gould. This collection of little-known facts about the human body answers the questions you have always wanted to ask but never dared to, such as: • Can smoking make your teeth fall out? • Is it safe to eat moldy food after the mold's been cut off? • Do intelligent people have bigger brains? • How do astronauts poo in space? The book also offers many unbelievable-but-true historical factoids about the body. For example: • Have you ever heard of Dr. Strangelove Syndrome? It's a rare condition caused by damage to certain parts in the brain, which results in a person's hand acting independently and taking on a life of its own. • Did you know that there is also a rare condition called Foreign Accent Syndrome, which results in people suddenly developing a foreign accent? • Have you ever wondered if a heart transplant could change your personality? The short answer is, yes! • Did you know that men used hair gel 2000 years ago during the Iron Age? Why You Shouldn't Eat Your Boogers offers of cornucopia of body trivia that will have readers cringing with delight! You can read it on the subway, in the bathroom, or even in a heavy downpour!
