NY – Kunal Nayyar Signing

Kunal NayyarKunal Nayyar signs at Book Revue on Friday, September 18th, 2015 at 7:00 pm!

Star of the #1 hit comedy The Big Bang Theory and author Kunal Nayyar will speak about and sign his new memoir, Yes, My Accent Is Real: And Some Other Things I Haven’t Told You.

In the spirit of Mindy Kaling’s bestseller Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, a collection of humorous, autobiographical essays from Kunal Nayyar, best known as Raj on CBS’s #1 hit comedy The Big Bang Theory.

Of all the charming misfits on television, there’s no doubt Raj from The Big Bang Theory—the sincere yet incurably geeky Indian-American astrophysicist—ranks among the misfittingest. Now, we meet the actor who is every bit as loveable as the character he plays on TV. In this revealing collection of essays written in his irreverent, hilarious, and self-deprecating voice, Kunal Nayyar traces his journey from a little boy in New Delhi who mistakes an awkward first kiss for a sacred commitment, gets nosebleeds chugging Coca-Cola to impress other students, and excels in the sport of badminton, to the confident, successful actor on the set of TV’s most-watched sitcom since Friends.

Going behind the scenes of The Big Bang Theory and into his personal experiences, Kunal introduces readers to the people who helped him grow, such as his James Bond-loving, mustachioed father who taught him the most important lessons in life: Treat a beggar as you would a king. There are two sides to every story. A smile goes a long way. And, when in doubt, use a spreadsheet. Kunal also walks us through his college years in Portland, where he takes his first sips of alcohol and learns to let loose with his French, 6’8” gentle-giant roommate, works his first-ever job for the university’s housekeeping department cleaning toilets for minimum wage, and begins a series of romantic exploits that go just about as well as they would for Raj. (That is, until he meets and marries a former Miss India in an elaborate seven-day event that we get to experience in a chapter titled “My Big Fat Indian Wedding.”)

Full of heart, but never taking itself too seriously, this witty and often inspiring collection of underdog tales follows a young man as he traverses two continents in search of a dream, along the way transcending culture and language (and many, many embarrassing incidents) to somehow miraculously land the role of a lifetime.

NY – Corey Taylor Signing

coreytalorCorey Taylor appear at Book Revue on Thursday, July 9th, 2015 at 7:00 PM to speak about and sign his new book, You’re Making Me Hate You.

In the tradition of the late great George Carlin, New York Times bestselling author and lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour Corey Taylor sounds off in hilarious fashion about the many vagaries of modern life that piss him off.

Whether it’s people’s rude behavior in restaurants and malls, the many indignities of air travel, eye-searingly terrible fashion choices, dangerously clueless drivers, and—most of all—the sorry state of much modern music, Taylor’s humor and insight cover civil society’s seeming decline—sparing no one along the way, least of all himself.

Holding nothing back and delivered in Taylor’s inimitable voice,You’re Making Me Hate You is a cathartic critique of the strange world in which we find ourselves.

NY – Scott Ian Signs

scottianScott Ian, guitarist of Anthrax, appears at Book Revue on Monday, October 13th, 2014 at 6:00 pm to sign his new memoir, I’m The Man: The Story of that Guy from Anthrax.

Press Release:

The long–awaited and vastly entertaining autobiography of Scott Ian, a founding member of legendary, groundbreaking, and influential thrash–metal band Anthrax.

In this fast–paced, humorous, and revealing memoir from guitarist Scott Ian—the leader of a band that proved brutality and fun don’t have to be mutually exclusive—Ian tells his life story, starting with his upbringing as a nerdy Jewish boy in Queens who had his first musical epiphany when he saw The Who on television. Not long after that, he saw KISS at Madison Square Garden and realized what he wanted to do with his life.

I’m the Man covers Ian’s dysfunctional home life and his escape through the turbulent world of heavy metal. It also chronicles the complete history of Anthrax, from the band’s formation to their triumphant performance at Ian’s beloved Yankee Stadium on the Big Four Tour with Metallica, Slayer, and Megadeth.

NY – Danielle Fishel Signs

df-ntwbcfcDanielle Fishel appears at Book Revue on Wednesday, September 10th, 2014 at 7:00 pm! The actress best known for her role as Topanga Lawrence on Boy Meets World, Danielle Fishel will speak and sign her new memoir, Normally, This Would Be Cause For Concern.

A warm and witty memoir by Danielle Fishel, the beloved star of the ’90s sitcom Boy Meets World and the eagerly anticipated spin-off, Girl Meets World.

Best known for playing Topanga Lawrence on Boy Meets World, Danielle Fishel was many a tween’s first crush and the quintessential girl-next-door for seven years as she joined 10 million viewers in their living rooms every Friday from 1993 to 2000. The real Danielle is just as entertaining and down-to-earth as the character she portrayed on her hit show. But even life for a successful actress can be messy, from disastrous auditions to dating mishaps and awkward red carpet moments.

Normally, This Would Be Cause for Concern is a fun romp through Danielle’s own imperfections and mild neuroses. It’s a book for anyone who, like Danielle, has ever tripped and fallen down a flight of stairs in a room full of people, had a romantic moment with their significant other that was ruined by horrendous gas, or taken a sexy Halloween photo without realizing there was a huge chunk of chocolate-covered strawberry in their teeth. Here is the real, imperfect Danielle, who knows that a good sense of humor and a positive attitude makes life so much more enjoyable. Even when you’ve just face-planted in front of Ben Affleck.

NY – The Kind Mama Signing

as-kmActress and activist Alicia Silverstone will speak and sign her new pregnancy guide, The Kind Mama, at Book Revue on Tuesday, April 15th, 2014 at 7pm!

Press Release:

When did making babies get to be so hard? Infertility is on the rise globally, affecting as many as one in six couples. But instead of considering diet and lifestyle factors, doctors pump their patients full of expensive and invasive fertility treatments. Once pregnant, women just accept that carrying a baby will be the gassy, swollen, irritable, sleepless nightmare that has become the new normal—and then assume that new motherhood will be just as challenging, from breastfeeding woes to screaming fits. It doesn’t have to be that way.

In The Kind Mama, Alicia Silverstone has created a comprehensive and practical guide empowering women to take charge of their fertility, pregnancy, and first six months with baby. Drawing on her own experience, as well as that of obstetricians, midwives, nutritionists, holistic health counselors, and others, Silverstone offers advice on getting one’s “baby house” in order through nutrient-rocking foods that heal and nourish, and, once pregnant, gentle ways to boost comfort, energy, and health during each trimester. She helps readers navigate everything from prenatal testing and birth plans to successful breastfeeding and creating a supportive “baby nest.” The result is an authoritative, one-stop guide that empowers women to trust their instincts during this vital milestone, while helping them embark on a healthy and more vibrant path to motherhood.

NY – Cameron Diaz Signs

TheBodyBookCameron Diaz appears at Book Revue on Monday, January 13th, 2014 at 6:00pm to speak and sign copies of her new book The Body Book.

Press Release:

Cameron Diaz shares her formula for becoming happier, healthier, and stronger in this positive, essential guide that is grounded in science and inspired by personal experience.

Throughout her career, Cameron Diaz has been a role model for millions of women. By her own candid admission, though, this fit, glamorous, but down-to-earth star was not always health-conscious. Learning about the inseparable link between nutrition and the body was just one of the life-changing lessons that has fed Cameron’s hunger to educate herself about the best ways to feed, move, and care for her body. In The Body Book, she shares what she has learned and continues to discover about nutrition, exercise, and the mind/body connection.

Grounded in science and informed by real life, The Body Book offers a comprehensive overview of the human body and mind, from the cellular level up. From demystifying and debunking the hype around food groups to explaining the value of vitamins and minerals, readers will discover why it’s so important to embrace the instinct of hunger and to satisfy it with whole, nutrient-dense foods. Cameron also explains the essential role of movement, the importance of muscle and bone strength and why we need to sweat a little every day.

The Body Book does not set goals to reach in seven days or thirty days or a year. It offers a holistic, long-term approach to making consistent choices and reaching the ultimate goal: a long, strong, happy, healthy life.
