The New York Times Bestseller

"There aren't many books this entertaining that also provide a cogent crash course in ancient, classical and modern history." --Los Angeles Times

Beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea, and Coca-Cola: In Tom Standage's deft, innovative account of world history, these six beverages turn out to be much more than just ways to quench thirst. They also represent six eras that span the course of civilization--from the adoption of agriculture, to the birth of cities, to the advent of globalization. A History of the World in 6 Glasses tells the story of humanity from the Stone Age to the twenty-first century through each epoch's signature refreshment. As Standage persuasively argues, each drink is in fact a kind of technology, advancing culture and catalyzing the intricate interplay of different societies. After reading this enlightening book, you may never look at your favorite drink in quite the same way again.

A Step By Step Guide To Starting And Running A Successful Horse Boarding Business: The Comprehensive Book Of Horse Boarding & Effective Barn Managemen

A Step By Step Guide To Starting And Running A Successful Horse Boarding Business: The Comprehensive Book Of Horse Boarding & Effective Barn Managemen

$30.00
More Info
This book will open your eyes to the world of horse boarding and all that it encompasses. The FIRST complete book of starting and running a horse boarding business and includes the financials for your entire operation. Two of the most often asked questions I get from people who want to start a boarding business are, "Where do I start?" and "Can I make money at boarding horses?" This book is a step by step guide on what you need to do to get your barn or stable up and going and how to maintain a strong and healthy boarding business. Whether you want to run a large facility or a small stable this book will cover everything you need to know to help you start off with a strong foundation for your business. In this book I discuss in detail herd management and your boarders and how to resolve issues when they arise-which they will! What to do when two horses don't get along and you have no place to move a horse and many other real life herd management issues. How to give a thirty-day notice and how to avoid drama when problems escalate. How to find the right barn manager, trainer and employees for your boarding business. Asking a trainer to leave your stable and the fall-out that can occur from this kind of situation. I discuss special requests and what is reasonable and what is not and figuring out what works for your place. You will experience many issues owning a boarding stable and this book will walk you through many of them because I have experienced them first hand and learned from all of them. I have included a current business plan (designed especially for the horse boarding industry), boarding contract and barn rules which is only the beginning. This book will walk you through every step and give you tasks lists and suggestions for every part of your business from designing your barn to seeking a loan. This book includes designing a barn or stable, your tack room, horse stalls and riding arenas. It covers extensive pages on herd management, turnout and paddocks and how to design them and what to think about before you put the first post in the ground. It will include business insurance, accounting and lawyers and what they mean to your business. I discuss the financial part of business ownership throughout the book and how to streamline your chores and hire employees. I discuss conflict resolution, the barn manager's role and client relations and the intention of this book is to help you avoid some of the common pitfalls of barn management and business ownership and that is only the beginning. The topics that are covered in this book are extensive and you won't find a more current book on running a boarding business. This book will benefit any size boarding operation. A large boarding barn equates to a large scale effort and risk. A small boarding stable carries lower financial risk but requires the same planning to be successful and can have many of the same issues as a large facility.Every area of the horse industry is impacted by the boarding stable and no matter the size; each plays an integral part in the success and stability of the equine industry.

    Agricultural and Agribusiness Law: An Introduction for Non-Lawyers

    Agricultural and Agribusiness Law: An Introduction for Non-Lawyers

    $62.75
    More Info

    This introductory textbook provides an overview of the concepts necessary for an understanding of agricultural and agribusiness law. The text will help students of land-based industries with little or no legal background to appreciate and identify issues that may require referral or consultation with legal counsel. This new edition is fully revised and updated, particularly addressing developments in taxation and trade, and includes a new chapter on criminal law, an area of increasing relevance to agriculture.

    Each concise chapter addresses a different legal issue that those employed in agriculture and agribusiness may face, and both federal law and representative examples of state law are included. In addition to traditional topics such as contracts, property law, and estate planning, the book also covers more contemporary issues such as organic certification, animal law, genetically engineered crops, and food safety.

    Agricultural law extends beyond those directly engaged in farming to those in agribusiness who provide services and inputs to farmers, buy farmers' products, store or transport products, manufacture food products and serve as intermediaries between farmers and consumers. The book will, therefore, also serve as a reference and a guide for those employed in agribusiness and agriculture.

    Behavioral Issues in Horses: Why Do They Do That?

    $15.50
    More Info

    "Behavioral Issues in Horses: Why Do They Do That?" is a valuable resource for anyone who has experienced the fear or frustration of their horse exhibiting dangerous/undesirable behaviors.

    Through personal accounts that are both entertaining and educational, author and horse trainer Nicole Brickner covers the most common behavioral issues horses develop, including bucking, kicking, rearing, biting, bolting, and more.

    She begins by describing natural horse behavior and why horses behave the way they do, and then explains how we can use this knowledge to work with a horse on a level it can understand.

    Next, she explores the possible physical, behavioral, and emotional causes of the various behaviors, and explains how the solution to a particular behavior can be very different depending on which of those possible causes is the root of the issue. In this unique approach, the root causes are recognized as originating from either physical (pain, hunger, etc.), behavioral (choice, conditioning, habit), or emotional (fear, anger, instinct) sources. Depending on which of these triggers is causing the issue, the path to resolving the behavior is very different.

    Finally, Nicole explains how to address the various behaviors, with dozens of stories based on her own experiences that illustrate solutions to each behavior, for each possible root cause.

    If there are horses in your life, you'll enjoy the insights and adventures in "Behavioral Issues in Horses: Why Do They Do That?"

    Nominated as one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read


    Oscar is a sweet but disastrously overweight ghetto nerd who--from the New Jersey home he shares with his old world mother and rebellious sister--dreams of becoming the Dominican J.R.R. Tolkien and, most of all, finding love. But Oscar may never get what he wants. Blame the fukú--a curse that has haunted Oscar's family for generations, following them on their epic journey from Santo Domingo to the USA. Encapsulating Dominican-American history, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao opens our eyes to an astonishing vision of the contemporary American experience and explores the endless human capacity to persevere--and risk it all--in the name of love.
