About This Book
The Believer magazine presents a compendium of advice from producers, writers, and actors of The Daily Show, Saturday Night Live, Parks and Recreation, Late Show with David Letterman, The Hangover, and The Colbert Report, along with other musicians, cartoonists, New Yorker writers, and those similarly unqualified to offer guidance.
 
Here Amy Sedaris describes the perfect murder for unwanted hermit crabs—you will need a piece of meat and a brick. Simon Rich explains how to avoid being found dead in your underwear by firemen—buy some long johns. Zach Galifianakis provides insight into how he changed his name without a social security card—he just started calling himself Adam Zapple, and it stuck. Bob Saget finally illuminates what “friends with benefits” really means—a nonsexual relationship wherein your ex makes monetary deposits into your bank account.

What emerges is a portrait of the challenges and rewards of marriage and parenthood: sex and romance, career triumphs and financial hardships, aging parents and maturing children and everything in between. This Is 40 captures what it takes for a family to flourish in the middle of a lifetime together, rendered with the unique intimacy of a filmmaker collaborating with his own wife and children.

    Superbad
    The Illustrated Moviebook
    The official book tie-in to the hilarious blockbuster film, including the complete screenplay, movie stills, and outrageous drawings that millions of fans will recognize from the film. From producers Judd Apatow and Shauna Robertson (The 40-Year-Old Virgin), screenwriters Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, and director Greg Mottola comes Superbad, a coming-of-age cautionary tale about two socially inept teenage boys about to graduate high school. Theirs is a ridiculously dependent friendship—but now they've gotten into different colleges and are forced to contemplate life apart. Evan (Michael Cera) is sweet, smart, and generally terrified. Seth (Jonah Hill) is foul-mouthed, volatile, and all-consumed with the topic of human sexuality. They are joined by their nerdy pal Fogell (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), whose fake ID as "McLovin" sets everything into motion. This is the story of their misguided attempts to reverse a lifelong losing streak with the ladies in one panic-driven night . . . that awful, humiliating night you cherish for the rest of your life. Exclusive to this must-have companion book: Introduction by producer Judd Apatow "Mr. Vagtastic's Guide to Buying Porn" Hilarious captioned drawings by David Goldberg The film's complete script Full cast and crew credits Also included is a section of commentaries and reviews from: Rolling Stone (Peter Travers) New York magazine (David Edelstein) Entertainment Weekly (Josh Rottenberg) The New York Times (Michael Cieply)
