On the tenth anniversary of his death, The Dirty Version is the first biography of hip hop superstar and founding member of the Wu-Tang Clan, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, to be written by someone from his inner circle: his right-hand man and best friend, Buddha Monk. Ol’ Dirty Bastard rocketed to fame with the Wu-Tang Clan, the raucous and renegade group that altered the world of hip hop forever. ODB was one of the Clan’s wildest icons and most inventive performers, and when he died of an overdose in 2004 at the age of thirty-five, millions of fans mourned the loss. ODB lives on in epic proportions and his antics are legend: he once picked up his welfare check in a limousine; lifted a burning car off a four-year-old girl in Brooklyn; stole a fifty-dollar pair of sneakers on tour at the peak of his success. Many have questioned whether his stunts were carefully calculated or the result of paranoia and mental instability. Now, Dirty’s friend since childhood, Buddha Monk, a Wu-Tang collaborator on stage and in the studio, reveals the truth about the complex and talented performer. From their days together on the streets of Brooklyn to the meteoric rise of Wu-Tang’s star, from bouts in prison to court-mandated rehab, from Dirty’s favorite kind of pizza to his struggles with fame and success, Buddha tells the real story—The Dirty Version—of the legendary rapper.

Two decades after its release, the Ol' Dirty Bastard's Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version is the rare hip-hop album that sounds as fresh and funny as on the day of its release. With a never-replicated style, the most obscene man in show business rhymed a chronicle of the nastiest thoughts put on record, bringing hip-hop to a place where it could be dirty and stinking. Much beloved and purchased, Return was not only a comedic masterpiece, but also a meditation on the nature of freedom and the power of swearing. By connecting the Ol' Dirty Bastard to a forgotten literary tradition, this book demonstrates that the rapper's artistry contained a profound repudiation of shame, and offered rich themes that have gone unexplored. Taking the ODB beyond the headlines, Jarett Kobek also explores the consequences of the wild tales that provided years of tabloid fare, suggesting that beneath the shock value was a very serious story ignored by almost everyone. A Black man in America refused to acknowledge social control and was crushed by the American criminal justice system. Is it possible that by recording his shameless message, the Ol' Dirty Bastard doomed himself to a short lifetime of police harassment and prison violence?

Life is hard in the Beardsley Terrace housing projects of Bridgeport, Connecticut, and seventeen-year-old Jesse Westbrook has built a dangerous reputation for himself by necessity. His family offers a calming, supportive environment, even if his stepfather has questionable mob connections. However, Jesse's life soon takes a tragic turn when his mother and stepfather are brutally murdered on the orders of Eddie DeLuca, a mobster who doubles as Bridgeport's police chief. Vowing to exact revenge, Jesse becomes a feared presence on the streets, dealing heroin until an overdose robs him of his main girl. Enlisting in the army, the young man fights in Vietnam, where he makes an important discovery: he enjoys killing. Now Jesse's back in the projects, running a feared street gang and tangling with the mob, rival gangs, and the cops. It's only a matter of time before Jesse comes to the attention of Eddie DeLuca, now Bridgeport's mayor. A confrontation between mob boss and gang leader is brewing, and only one of them will make it out alive. It's up to Jesse to make sure DeLuca is the one who ends up in the morgue-or what's left of him.

How do you go from being an urban dag to a country boy without any experience of the bush? In 2008 Matthew Evans, one of Australia's most powerful food critics, stepped off the Sydney treadmill to farm 20 acres in Australia's southernmost shire. What is it really like to take the plunge, leaving a whole world of familiar people, places and work behind? How does it feel to use a cordless drill for the first time, to plant a vegetable garden, to milk a cow, to slaughter a chook for dinner? And what if a TV show is filming the whole process? This is the story of that transformation. The story of a life more in tune with the seasons and more connected to the soil. A life that is as rewarding as it is exhausting. The story of a family trying to turn a living from the noble and ancient art of growing things on the land.

Instant National Bestseller After suffering for years with unexplainable health issues, Dr. Ben Lynch discovered the root cause—“dirty” genes. Genes can be “born dirty” or merely “act dirty” in response to your environment, diet, or lifestyle—causing lifelong, life-threatening, and chronic health problems, including cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disorders, anxiety, depression, digestive issues, obesity, cancer, and diabetes. Based on his own experience and successfully helping thousands of clients, Dr. Lynch shows you how to identify and optimize both types of dirty genes by cleaning them up with targeted and personalized plans, including healthy eating, good sleep, stress relief, environmental detox, and other holistic and natural means. Many of us believe our genes doom us to the disorders that run in our families. But Dr. Lynch reveals that with the right plan in place, you can eliminate symptoms, and optimize your physical and mental health—and ultimately rewrite your genetic destiny.
