M. K. Leary was at one time a server. During this miserable period of her life she wrote a how-to guide on something that seemed to go beyond the common sense of people. "How to Eat at a Restaurant" was her attempt to make the world a better place. She believes whole-heartedly that going out to eat should be licensed only to those people who have read this book.
"A Chinese Bestiary "presents a fascinating pageant of mythical creatures from a unique and enduring cosmography written in ancient China. The "Guideways through Mountains and Seas, "compiled between the fourth and first centuries b.c.e., contains descriptions of hundreds of fantastic denizens of mountains, rivers, islands, and seas, along with minerals, flora, and medicine. The text also represents a wide range of beliefs held by the ancient Chinese. Richard Strassberg brings the "Guideways "to life for modern readers by weaving together translations from the work itself with information from other texts and recent archaeological finds to create a lavishly illustrated guide to the imaginative world of early China.
