Book Summary:

Charles Handy is perhaps best known outside the business world as a wise and warm presenter of Radio 4's 'Thought for the Day'. Long recognised as one of the world's leading business thinkers (over a million copies of his books have been sold around the world), in Myself and Other More Important Matters he leaves the management territory he has so effectively and influentially mapped in the past to explore the wider issues and dilemmas - both moral and creative - raised by the turning points of his long and successful life.Here he investigates the big issues of how life can best be lived as they have emerged from the unfolding of his life and his unique and influential understanding of what really matters. From supplying oil by boat to an area larger than England as a bullish young Shell executive in Borneo to realising that there was a big difference between describing the development of a 'portfolio' life (made up of a variety of activities for a range of purposes and pay) in theory and actually himself leaving behind full-time employment, from helping to start up the London and Open business schools to listening and talking to people all over the world about how they want to manage their lives, Handy's telling of his experiences proves both revealing and significant.

Book Summary:

We are all witnesses of our time, and this is something of a witness to mine.' Something of Myself and Others is a fascinating collection of articles and reflections on the public and private life of one of Ireland's best known journalists. Detailing memorable events in her life, as well as those she has witnessed in Ireland's recent history, Mary Kenny recalls her experiences with humour and charm. In this collection of articles, some of which have appeared previously in a number of newspapers and magazines, Kenny reflects on the people she has known, the places she has been and the experiences that have shaped her. Something of Myself and Others is a wonderfully varied and entertaining read. In it, Mary chronicles her adventures as a young ambitious journalist through to her current personal challenges with illness and loss. She recalls bringing down a Cabinet minister aboard the Queen Mary, introducing Irish president Michael D. Higgins to his wife, interviewing Grace of Monaco and Marlene Dietrich and being complimented by the Queen. She talks with great heart about the absent friends that have influenced her, such as Terry Keane, June Levine and Maeve Binchey. She gives her account of the now infamous trip to Belfast aboard the contraception train, as well as some reflections on culture, religion and Irish society. Alongside stories of the famous faces she has encountered, Mary also writes candidly on the loss of her sister, Ursula and her recent experience as primary carer for her husband, Richard. Something of Myself and Others is not an autobiography. Instead, Mary Kenny has assembled a refreshing collection of articles that are sometimes funny, often poignant and always sharply perceptive, giving a wonderful insight into the life of one of Ireland's most prolific journalists.

Book Summary:

This collection of speeches in support of free trade by the future Prime Minister tracks his early rise in British Parliament. Throughout his career—as both a Conservative and a Liberal—Winston Churchill was a strong supporter of free trade. As a Conservative, this position was sometimes controversial; early in his career, Churchill opposed Joseph Chamberlain's strategy of imposing tariffs to protect Britain’s economic dominance. When he defected to the Liberal Party in 1904, Churchill continued to be a fierce free trade advocate. Originally published in 1906, For Free Trade was an influential political pamphlet that made Churchill’s speeches on the subject available to the British people. This collection contains speeches delivered in Manchester or The House of Commons between 1902 and 1905.

Book Summary:

There's a razor-thin line between adoration and hatred in Philip Caveney's haunting thriller. Mark Tyler is a bestselling horror writer, and countless readers are awaiting his next novel featuring Black Wolf. When Mark receives a note from an American fan, he unwisely writes straight back. But his friendly gesture provokes a deluge of increasingly strange letters. Clearly the man is an obsessive who identifies much too closely with the novel's violent supernatural hero. Distracted by personal problems, Mark fails to notice the mounting psychosis of his 'number one' fan. He cannot know that a small US town is already terrorised by a spate of bizarre deaths dubbed 'the wolfman murders'. Nor can he predict that London will soon suffer its own sequence of grisly killings. Will the author fall prey to a monster of his own creation?

Book Summary:

The author makes a case for "egocentric presentism," a view about the nature of first-person experience. A natural thought about the first-person experience is that "all and only the things of which I am aware are present to me." He goes even further and claims that the thought should instead be that "all and only the things of which I am aware are present." That there is something unique about me and the things of which I am aware. This book represents a new take on an old view, known as solipsism, which maintains that people's experiences give them grounds for believing that they have a special, distinguished place in the world--for example, believing that only they exist or that other people do not have conscious minds like their own. The author maintains that the version of solipsism he argues for is capable of resolving some seemingly intractable philosophical problems--both in metaphysics and ethics--concerning personal identity over time, as well as the tension between self-interest and the greater good.

Book Summary:

A pregnant teenager discovers her employer’s sinister secrets in an eighteenth-century London that “feels alive and intense, magnificently raw” (The New York Times Book Review). 1666: The Great Fire of London sweeps through the streets and a heavily pregnant woman flees the flames. A few months later she gives birth to a child disfigured by a red birthmark. 1718: Sixteen-year-old Eliza Tally sees the gleaming dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral rising above a rebuilt city. She arrives as an apothecary’s maid, a position hastily arranged to shield the father of her unborn child from scandal. But why is the apothecary so eager to welcome her when he already has a maid, a half-wit named Mary? Why is Eliza never allowed to look her veiled master in the face or go into the study where he pursues his experiments? It is only on her visits to the Huguenot bookseller who supplies her master’s scientific tomes that she realizes the nature of his obsession. And she knows she has to act to save not just the child but Mary and herself. This ebook includes a sample chapter of Beautiful Lies.

Book Summary:

We all own a very special key. It is the key that unlocks all that we are and all that we could ever want and dream of wanting. Access to this key is so simple, yet we make it so hard. This key is always there, waiting for us to use it to unlock our treasure chest and to release the power within it. We all want so badly to be the winner of the big lottery, but little do we know we already are the winner. We think winning the lottery will give us the power to do what we want with our lives. If we only knew that all the power is already within us. They say that in the last days the hearts of many men will fail because of fear. Our hearts fail every time we make a decision based in fear, instead of believing to trust what is in our hearts. Our heart is each and everyones very own treasure chest that is open every time we choose to believe what is in it. Now if the key to all our happiness is in our treasure chest, which lies within our heart, wouldnt it make sense that our number one priority in life would be to discover our heart and what lies within it? Every time we make a decision aligned with our heart, we tap into our power and release a potent and invisible energy into the world. This energy in turn orchestrates the universe to reflect back into our lives that ultimately leads us to fulfill our purpose. We must believe that all of lifes experiences, situations, and relationships are there to take us on a great journey. A journey that creates opportunities for self-discovery and that promotes self-growth and awareness. One experience of life is death. However, it is not death in the physical sense, but in a spiritual sense. It is dying to who we thought we were and dying to what we thought we believed and to how we defined ourselves. A lot of what we thought really isnt even our own thoughts. They are actually thoughts we adopted from others. They are thoughts and beliefs imposed on us by others, beginning right down to when we were babies. In this process to self-discovery, we must cut off the junk we gathered in life that are not our own in order to become in alignment to who we are. God is the very essence of lifethe life within us and the life outside us. As we continue the path of self-discovery, happiness is sure to follow. The compass that should aid us in our journey is called bliss. Following our bliss is the key to what is in your heart and ultimately to be one with God. The key to our fulfillment in life is not to create separation between who God is and who we are. We are one with God. We are cocreators with God, and we have the power to create whatever we want.
