So much of our lives are affected by our appearances. The way we鈥檙e viewed by the world, the way we view ourselves, and the way we communicate with others are all influenced by the non-verbal cues we send out. When these cues are aligned with who we are and how we truly feel inside, our relationships with others and our confidence in ourselves can be dramatically improved.<br /><br />Modern advances in cosmetic surgery can help people achieve these life-changing results. But all too often, patients are hesitant to seek treatment. They don鈥檛 know their options. They don鈥檛 know what questions to ask. And, 鈥塧bove all else, they don鈥檛 want to look like they鈥檝e 鈥渉ad work done.鈥?lt;br /><br />In his book, Dr. Adam J. Scheiner lays out a philosophy towards cosmetic procedures that focuses on revealing a patient鈥檚 innate natural beauty and reclaiming their appearance from damage like sun exposure and the inevitable deterioration caused by aging. This approach leads to more harmonious results that are subtle, yet powerful.<br /><br />By explaining the mathematical basis underlying true, balanced beauty, and then demonstrating the ways in which cosmetic procedures can bring this true beauty to light, Dr. Scheiner seeks to set patients鈥?fears at ease and arm them with the knowledge they need to guarantee they get the results they desire鈥塧nd deserve.<br /><br />Discover the options available to you and how they can bring your true beauty to light.

Have you ever wondered why we wear the type of clothes we do? Packed with outlandish outfits, this exciting history of fashion trends reveals the flamboyant fashions adopted (and discarded) by our ancestors.<br />In the days before cosmetic surgery, people used bum rolls and bombastic breeches to augment their figures, painted their faces with poisonous concoctions, and doused themselves with scent to cover body odor.<br />Take a fresh look at history鈥檚 hidden fashion disasters and discover the stories behind historical garments:<br /> How removing a medieval woman鈥檚 headdress could reveal her as a harlot<br /> Why Tudor men traded in their oversized codpieces for corsets<br /> How crinoline caused a spate of shoplifting among Victorian ladies<br />Karen Bowman charts our sartorial history from the animal skins first used to cover our modesty and show off hunting skills, right up to the twentieth-century drive for practicality and comfort. <i>Corsets and Codpieces</i> is a fascination read for history buffs and fashionistas alike.<br /><br />Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in history--books about World War II, the Third Reich, Hitler and his henchmen, the JFK assassination, conspiracies, the American Civil War, the American Revolution, gladiators, Vikings, ancient Rome, medieval times, the old West, and much more.

Inspired by Paris, this lighthearted and deceptively wise contemporary memoir serves as a guidebook for women on the path to adulthood, sophistication, and style. Jennifer Scott鈥檚 self-published success is now a beautifully packaged and fully illustrated gift book, perfect for any woman looking to lead a more fulfilling, passionate, and artful life.<br /><br />Paris may be the City of Light, but for many it is also the City of Transformation. When Jennifer Scott arrived in Paris as an exchange student from California, she had little idea she would become an avid fan of French fashion, lifestyle, and sophistication. Used to a casual life back home, in Paris she was hosted by a woman she calls 鈥淢adame Chic,鈥?mistress of a grand apartment in the Sixteenth Arrondissement.<br /> <br />Madame Chic mentors Jennifer in the art of living, with elegance and an impeccably French less-is-more philosophy. Three-course meals prepared by the well-dressed Madame Chic (her neat clothes covered by an apron, of course) lure Jennifer from her usual habit of frequent snacks, junk food, sweatpants, and TV.<br /> <br />Additional time spent with 鈥淢adame Bohemienne,鈥?a charming single mother who passionately embraces Parisian<i> joie de vivre</i>, introduces readers to another facet of behind-closed-doors Parisian life.<br /> <br />While Francophiles will appreciate this memoir of a young woman鈥檚 adventure abroad, others who may not know much about France will thrill to the surprisingly do-able (yet chic!) hair and makeup lessons, plus tips on how to create a capsule wardrobe with just ten useful core pieces.<br /> <br />Each chapter of <i>Lessons from Madame Chic </i>reveals the valuable secrets Jennifer learned while under Madame Chic鈥檚 tutelage鈥攖ips you can master no matter where you live or the size of your budget.<br /> <br />Embracing the classically French aesthetic of quality over quantity, aspiring <i>Parisiennes </i>will learn the art of eating (deprive yourself not; snacking is not chic), fashion (buy the best you can afford), grooming (<i>le no-makeup look</i>), among other tips.<br /> <br />From entertaining to decor, you will gain insights on how to cultivate old-fashioned sophistication while living an active, modern life. <i>Lessons from Madame Chic </i>is the essential handbook for a woman that wants to look good, live well, and enjoy that Parisian <i>je ne sais quoi</i> in her own <i>arrondissement.</i>
