About This Book
George Lopez acaba de cumplir medio siglo y ha empezado a reiniciar su vida. Recién soltero y listo para disfrutarla, George estaba emocionado de cumplir cincuenta. Sería una nueva fase muy bienvenida en su vida, y la oportunidad para decir adiós a una década que incluyó un trasplante de riñón y un divorcio. Pero cuando miró a su alrededor en un cuarto lleno de sus amigos de la infancia, todos reunidos ahí para celebrar su cumpleaños, muchos ahora calvos o con sobrepeso, de repente se dio cuenta de que estaba viejo.

¿Qué había pasado? Y más importante, ¿qué iba a hacer al respecto? George aprendió por las malas que cuando se cumple cincuenta, todo cambia. Te desgarras un músculo mientras duermes. Evitas los espejos a como dé lugar y siempre, siempre, usas una bata. Tienes que hacer una cita para tener sexo. Tienes que teñirte el pelo y comprar una bañera con puerta.

A medida que George aprende a disfrutar de la vida después de los cincuenta, invita a los lectores a su mundo, compartiendo los altibajos de envejecer, desde su relación con una mujer mucho más joven a una extraña sesión con una psíquica de mascotas, a un viaje detrás de bambalinas durante sus tumultuosos dos años en Lopez Tonight, hasta una mirada íntima a su tierra sagrada, el campo de golf, y, por primera vez, revela con conmovedores detalles la historia de la batalla por su vida contra una enfermedad renal.

No voy a mentir hará que te rías de ti mismo, llores y mires el hecho de cumplir cincuenta de una forma que nunca habrías imaginado: a través de los ojos de George Lopez.

    I'm Not Gonna Lie: And Other Lies You Tell When You Turn 50
    From one of the most celebrated and beloved comedians and actors of our time, George Lopez, comes this hilarious, touching, and often wacky chronicle of life after fifty.   George Lopez just hit the half-century mark and the reset button on his life. Newly single and ready to embrace life, George was excited to turn fifty. It would be a welcome new phase in his life, a chance to say goodbye to a decade that included a kidney transplant and a divorce. But when he looked around a room full of his childhood friends, all gathered to celebrate his birthday, many now bald or overweight, it suddenly hit him that he was old.   What happened? And more importantly, what was he going to do about it? George learns the hard way that when you turn 50, everything changes. You pull a muscle in your sleep. You avoid mirrors at all costs, and always, always wear a robe. You have to schedule an appointment to have sex. You have to dye your hair and buy a bathtub with a door.   As George learns to embrace life after fifty, he invites readers into his world, sharing the ups and downs of getting older—from his relationship with a much younger woman to a bizarre session with a pet psychic, to a trip behind-the-scenes at his tumultuous two years at Lopez Tonight, to an intimate look at his sacred ground, the golf course—and, for the first time, he reveals in moving detail, the story of the battle for his life against kidney disease.     I’m Not Gonna Lie  will make you laugh at yourself, cry about yourself, and look at turning fifty in a way you never would’ve imagined—through the eyes of George Lopez.

    Neo-Conned!
    Just War Principles: A Condemnation of War in Iraq
    Refuting the myth that America's socially conservative thinkers, journalists, and commentators tend to support the war in Iraq, this text incorporates the opinions of some of the leading figures in America's conservative movement on why the decision to go to war and the continuing occupation of Iraq was and is the wrong course of action. Twenty-five articles by influential thinkers such as former presidential candidate Pat Buchanan; syndicated columnists Sam Francis, Eric Margolis, Charley Reese, and Joseph Sobran; leading economist Jude Wanniski; social critics Tom Fleming and Paul Gottfried; and religious figures Bishop John Michael Botean and the late Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani make the case against the Iraqi conflict using conservative arguments on geopolitics, Christian morality, and common sense. Four detailed appendices on the war teachings of the Roman Catholic Church are also provided.

    Why You Crying?

    Why You Crying?
    My Long, Hard Look at Life, Love, and Laughter
    In this eagerly awaited autobiography, comedian and prime-time television star George Lopez tells the heartbreaking yet humorous story of his inspirational rise from dead-end kid in the Valley to giving a command performance before the president of the United States. It is a rare story that touches us so deeply with its humor, sadness, and powerful message that it transcends the walls of race, culture, and class that divide us. Why You Crying? is just such a story. Abandoned by his migrant-worker father at the tender age of two months, deserted by a wild, mixed-up mother at the age of ten years, Lopez grew up angry, alone, teased, and tormented in California's San Fernando Valley, raised by grandparents who viewed love as a four-letter word. Inspired by his idols, Freddie Prinze Sr. and Richard Pryor, Lopez sets out on a tumultuous twenty-year journey into the manic world of stand-up comedy -- trying to learn a skill nobody can teach; scoring one night and bombing the next; fighting anger, alcohol, depression, and doubt all while battling the barriers built to keep Chicanos from breaking through, especially on network TV. Today, the George Lopez show is a prime-time hit on ABC and his sold-out stand-up performances attract thousands of fans of all ages, each drawn to the sidesplitting riffs mined from a life so sad it had to be funny. Why You Crying? takes an outsider from the San Fernando Valley to Warner Bros. studios to inside the Emmys to plush Pebble Beach and all the way to the halls of Harvard. Along the way it's pure G. Lo -- raw, real, and, ultimately, uplifting.
