Marlene Koch, the "magician in the kitchen" and QVC favorite, can transform this health nightmare of a dish into an absolute dream: her version clocking in at 300 calories with an 80% reduction in fat, an 85% reduction in sodium, and 90% less sugar. Amazing! Marlene's "Dare to Compares" have always been a popular feature in her bestselling Eat What You Lovecookbook series, and now she delivers an entire cookbook devoted to these "makeovers" of popular dishes inspired by The Cheesecake Factory, California Pizza Kitchen, Applebees, P.F. Chang's, IHOP, Starbucks, Outback Steakhouse, and more! Marlene provides 85 brand-new recipes, along with 40 "classics" from her other books, for a total of 125 recipes, and approximately 50 photos. This new cookbook also includes everything that consumers have come to rely upon with Marlene's stellar series: Weight Watcher point comparisons and diabetic exchanges for every recipe, gluten-free and sugar-substitute options, fast and fuss-free recipes, and satisfying (not skimpy!) portions. You may never eat out again after tasting Marlene's magical riffs on your restaurant favorites!

The War on Normal People

Andrew Yang
Authors:
Andrew Yang

The shift toward automation is about to create a tsunami of unemployment. Not in the distant future--now. One recent estimate predicts 13 million American workers will lose their jobs within the next seven years-jobs that won't be replaced. In a future marked by restlessness and chronic unemployment, what will happen to American society?In The War on Normal People, Andrew Yang paints a dire portrait of the American economy. Rapidly advancing technologies like artificial intelligence, robotics and automation software are making millions of Americans' livelihoods irrelevant. The consequences are these trends are already being felt across our communities in the form of political unrest, drug use, and other social ills. The future looks dire-but is it unavoidable?In The War on Normal People, Yang imagines a different future - one in which having a job is distinct from the capacity to prosper and seek fulfillment. At this vision's core is Universal Basic Income, the concept of providing all citizens with a guaranteed income-and one that is rapidly gaining popularity among forward-thinking politicians and economists. Yang proposes that UBI is an essential step toward a new, more durable kind of economy, one he calls "human capitalism."

Uncontrolled

Jim Manzi
Authors:
Jim Manzi

How do we know which social and economic policies work, which should be continued, and which should be changed? Jim Manzi argues that throughout history, various methods have been attempted,except for controlled experimentation. Experiments provide the feedback loop that allows us, in certain limited ways, to identify error in our beliefs as a first step to correcting them. Over the course of the first half of the twentieth century, scientists invented a methodology for executing controlled experiments to evaluate certain kinds of proposed social interventions. This technique goes by many names in different contexts (randomized control trials, randomized field experiments, clinical trials, etc.). Over the past ten to twenty years this has been increasingly deployed in a wide variety of contexts, but it remains the red-haired step child of modern social science. This is starting to change, and this change should be encouraged and accelerated, even though the staggering complexity of human society creates severe limits to what social science could be realistically expected to achieve. Randomized trials have shown, for example, that work requirements for welfare recipients have succeeded like nothing else in encouraging employment, that charter school vouchers have been successful in increasing educational attainment for underprivileged children, and that community policing has worked to reduce crime, but also that programs like Head Start and Job Corps, which might be politically attractive, fail to attain their intended objectives. Business leaders can also use experiments to test decisions in a controlled, low-risk environment before investing precious resources in large-scale changes - the philosophy behind Manzi's own successful software company. In a powerful and masterfully-argued book, Manzi shows us how the methods of science can be applied to social and economic policy in order to ensure progress and prosperity.
