News from the Square


WITH NOVEMBER AS NATIONAL DIABETES MONTH, TURN TO OUR "ANTI"-SUGAR BOOKS IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Posted: 2022/11/25

Garden City Park, NY: Each year, November brings the Thanksgiving holidays—but it also brings National Diabetes Month, which provides everyone a chance to rethink their relationship to sugar in their foods.

Now that Thanksgiving is over and the holiday season is about to begin, Square One wants to make sure that you have our key titles in front of you when it comes to how important it is to stay away from added sugars.

Suicide by SugarA Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction ($15.95 USD, ISBN: 9780757003066) exposes the many all-too-real health dangers present in America’s ongoing "high-sugar" diet. The book offers a bevy of startling facts that link a range of disorders—from dementia and hypoglycemia to obesity and cancer—to our nation's continued sugar addiction. Rounding out the book is a sound diet plan along with a number of recipes for sweet, easy-to prepare dishes—all made without sugar or fruit.

Killer ColasThe Hard Truth About Soft Drinks ($15.95 USD, ISBN: 9780757003417) shows how, over the last twenty-five years, the strong sale of sodas, energy beverages, and sports drinks has expanded the incidence of adult and childhood obesity, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and stroke. In this important book, the authors look at the history and growth of the soft drink industry from fountain shops to multinational mega-corporations. The book also examines the industry’s powerful influence over the media, and looks at the addictive and harmful ingredients these companies have added to their formulas. And for those who want the science, Killer Colas provides ample evidence that links our growing consumption of soft drinks with our declining health rates nationwide.

Glycemic Index Food GuideFor Weight Loss, Cardiovascular Health, Diabetic Management, and Maximum Energy ($7.95 USD, ISBN: 9780757002458) is an easy-to-use guide that tells readers about the glycemic index (GI)—a measurement of how much your blood glucose level increases when eating any number of carbohydrates—that can be found, and avoided, across hundreds of foods and beverages (including raw foods, cooked foods, and many combination and prepared foods).

And before you give in to the frantic tempo and poor food choices so often associated with the holidays, be sure to check out our controversial title Unsafe at Any MealWhat the FDA Does Not Want You to Know About the Foods You Eat ($16.95 USD, ISBN: 9780757004360). The book's author, former FDA food safety investigator Dr. Renee Dufault discovered in her government-funded research well over a decade ago that highly toxic metal such as mercury, among others, were being found in a number of processed foods commonly sold in supermarkets. In addition, the high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) levels in processed foods have been linked to all manner of disease, including not just diabetes and cancer and heart disease but also autism in children.

When Dr. Dufault revealed these disturbing findings to her superiors, she was told to stop her investigation. Her continued efforts to raise the issue always met with a dead end, so she chose to take an early retirement from the FDA. Unsafe at Any Meal serves to expose what still seems to be a well-kept secret by the FDA—and aims to provide consumers with the information they need to know in order to maintain a healthier life for themselves and their loved ones through better food choices. Key elements in this book include a helpful guide to reading food labels, recognizing misleading marketing tactics, and knowing what to look for—and what to look out for—in the aisles of your grocery store.

All of Square One's titles are available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Bookshop.org, and wherever else books are sold. We invite you to check out these titles, if only to ensure that you can help make a holiday season for yourself—together with your family and loved ones, of course—a far healthier one.

The Most Controversial
"Jack the Ripper"
Theory in Recent History
(perfect for True Crime fans!)


Garden City Park, NY: Looking for your next excellent True Crime book? Then look no further—Square One's still-controversial backlist title The Strange Case of Dr. Doyle: A Journey into Madness & Mayhem is here.

The book—which suggests that the infamous “Jack the Ripper” and famous Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were the same man—is now available in both its original hardcover format ($29.95 USD, ISBN: 978-0-7570-0348-6 ) and also the revised 2019 trade paperback edition ($17.95 USD, ISBN: 978-0-7570-0431-5), which features some excellent new artwork from famed comic book artist John Romita, Jr.).

The book’s authors, medical-doctor son/father  team Daniel Friedman and Eugene Friedman, have defended their theory on the Travel Channel’s popular investigative show America Unearthed hosted by Scott Wolter—and world-renowned Ripperologist expert Paul Begg has declared the Friedmans’ book “a gripping and fascinating read.”

Here’s what others have said about The Strange Case of Dr. Doyle:

“A spectacular undertaking.” —The Durango Herald

Engaging . . . bound to be read by fans of Victorian murder.” —Library Journal

Extremely insightful, and well researched . . . illuminating.” —Detective Mystery Stories

“Allows us to peek inside the mind of Arthur Conan Doyle.” —Booklist

“[R]aise[s] intriguing questions and possibilities.”
                                                 —Kirkus Reviews

COMING SOON: 
As we head into the Spring 2023 publishing season, be on the lookout for a new title from the authors of The Strange Case of Dr. Doyle. This new hardcover is titled Doyle's World—Lost & Found: The Unknown Histories of Sherlock Holmes and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle ($21.95 USD, ISBN: 978-0-7570-0448-3), and its chief focus will land on the remarkable ways in which Doyle wove the facts of his life within the fabric of his fiction (among his various other works).

Square One titles are available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Bookshop.org, and wherever else books are sold. (If they sell books, they can get this one for you.) Within the trade, our titles are available through Ingram, Baker & Taylor, Follett, and Brodart among other distributors. Or you can order from Square One directly by calling 516-535-2010.
