Book Summary: A collection of short pieces about everything from genius and God to socks and lentils, from one of America’s most beloved humor writers One Fell Soup brings together the reviews, diatribes, investigations, meditations, and poetry of Roy Blount Jr., a writer as insightful as he is funny. Culled from his many columns and magazine writings, this volume offers an unparalleled look at the varied interests of a writer the New York Times has compared to Mark Twain—albeit with a far greater demonstrated interest in love songs about gravy, ice cream, and mac and cheese. “Chickens” celebrates the vast cultural importance—and criminal neglect—of the most abundant domesticated fowl. “So This Is Male Sexuality” examines the unsettling specter of sex researchers like Masters and Johnson looming over one’s private thoughts. And “Merely Shot in the Head” ponders the absurd willpower of a man who finishes a full marathon after taking a bullet ten miles into the race.

Book Summary: Uses real-world bug reports (vulnerabilities in software or in this case web applications) to teach programmers and InfoSec professionals how to discover and protect vulnerabilities in web applications. Real-World Bug Hunting is a field guide to finding software bugs. Ethical hacker Peter Yaworski breaks down common types of bugs, then contextualizes them with real bug bounty reports released by hackers on companies like Twitter, Facebook, Google, Uber, and Starbucks. As you read each report, you'll gain deeper insight into how the vulnerabilities work and how you might find similar ones. Each chapter begins with an explanation of a vulnerability type, then moves into a series of real bug bounty reports that show how the bugs were found. You'll learn things like how Cross-Site Request Forgery tricks users into unknowingly submitting information to websites they are logged into; how to pass along unsafe JavaScript to execute Cross-Site Scripting; how to access another user's data via Insecure Direct Object References; how to trick websites into disclosing information with Server Side Request Forgeries; and how bugs in application logic can lead to pretty serious vulnerabilities. Yaworski also shares advice on how to write effective vulnerability reports and develop relationships with bug bounty programs, as well as recommends hacking tools that can make the job a little easier.

In a 5,000-mile odyssey covering over 50 locations in eight states, Van Wie follows and fishes in the footsteps of giants from Thoreau to Hemingway, Robert Traver to Corey Ford, Louise Dickinson Rich to Aldo Leopold to Winslow Homer and many more. Storied Waters provides a virtual roadmap through 200 years of fly-fishing literature and a literal roadmap—complete with local fishing tips—to the hallowed waters of our sport. In each chapter, informative sidebars detail fishing spots, best times to fish, major hatches, and other intel.

With an easy, conversational writing voice enhanced with spectacular photographs, Van Wie relates an eclectic mix of travel narrative, natural history, and fishing tips and advice, as well as a deep (but sometimes humorously irreverent) appreciation for the writers who have created such a rich legacy of stories about fishing over the past 200 years.

Book Summary: Inspired by the true story of two friends who landed a deal on Shark Tank. Sixth-grade students-turned-entrepreneurs are on a mission to save the world, one bug at a time! Hallie and Jaye are both sixth graders at Brookdale Middle School, but they couldn't be more different. Jaye is one of the popular kids who'll do almost anything to maintain her status. Hallie's only friend has moved away, and she couldn't care less what anyone thinks of her. So when the two girls are paired up as partners for a pitch competition held by their Business Education and Entrepreneurship class, it's not exactly a perfect match. After all, Jaye doesn't want to be seen with the kid who was dubbed "Bug Girl" after eating a fried cricket during a class trip to the zoo! But the pair are stuck together, and soon enough Jaye is also stuck with Hallie's idea: finding creative ways to sell bugs as food. Jaye's not thrilled but is willing to give it a shot, since winners get to compete in the county competition, potentially followed by states and nationals. And Jaye wants to win. As the competition heats up, can Hallie and Jaye make the judges say "Bug appétit!" or will they only hear crickets? Based on the true story of a sustainable protein start-up company, this illustrated novel is a reimagining for a middle-grade reader. Chirps founders Rose Wang and Laura D'Asaro met as freshmen at Harvard University and cooked up the concept of selling chips made with cricket flour to help Americans feel more comfortable eating bugs. Together, Rose and Laura appeared on the TV show Shark Tank to pitch their idea and landed a deal with Mark Cuban. Chirps chips are now sold in stores across the nation.

Book Summary: The 'White Lady' spy net stretched across Europe, encompassing more than 1,000 agents and producing 70 per cent of Allied intelligence on the German forces in the First World War. Through sheer ingenuity, it maintained a staggeringly complex network of spies deep behind enemy lines, who provided vital information on troop movements to and from the Western Front. Its success rested on one man: Henry Landau. Talent-spotted while on a dinner date with one of the secret service's secretaries, Landau left with an exclusive invitation to the service headquarters to meet the legendary 'C' (Mansfield Cumming, the 'chief' of what is now MI6). Fully aware that the man on the other side of the door had a reputation for intimidating his young recruits - such as stabbing his leg without letting on that it was wooden - Landau never expected to be given the daunting task of running La Dame Blanche, nor did he realise how instrumental he would be in helping the Allies turn the tide of the war. Vivid, fast-paced and utterly compelling, The Spy Net is the extraordinary story of the war's most successful intelligence operation, as told by the man who pulled the strings.
