Roald Dahl and Philosophy Book Excerpt:

For generations the elements of humor, poignancy, fantasy, and unfettered morality found within acclaimed children’s author Roald Dahl’s most famous tales have captivated both children and adults. Classics like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Matilda, and The BFG may initially appear to be yarns spun for the amusement of the adolescent mind, however, upon digging deeper one uncovers a treasure trove of philosophical richness that is anything but childish, but in fact reveals the true existential weight, and multi-layered meaning of some of our favorite children’s stories. Editor Jacob M. Held has collected the insights of today’s leading philosophers into the significances, messages, and greater truths at which Dahl’s rhythmic writing winks, revealing a whole new way to appreciate the creation of a man and mind to which readers of all ages are still drawn.

Travelling to Work Book Excerpt:

The third volume of Michael Palin's celebrated diaries. TRAVELLING TO WORK is a roller-coaster ride driven by the Palin hallmarks of curiosity and sense of adventure. Michael was not the BBC's first choice for the travel series AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS, but after its success, the public naturally wanted more. Palin, however, had other plans. There was his film AMERICAN FRIENDS, a role in Alan Bleasdale's award-winning drama GBH, the staging of his West End play THE WEEKEND, a first novel, HEMINGWAY'S CHAIR, and a lead role in FIERCE CREATURES. He did find time for two more travel series, POLE TO POLE in 1991 and FULL CIRCLE in 1996, and wrote two bestselling books to accompany them. These ten years in different directions offer riches on every page.

The Enchanted Hour Book Excerpt:

'As soon as I began to read, I was filled with that kind of engrossed blossoming that happens somewhere inside of you when you start a really nourishing book.' - Pandora Sykes A conversation-changing look at the social, familial, neurological, and psychological benefits of reading aloud, especially for parents and children. A miraculous alchemy occurs when one person reads to another, transforming the simple stuff of a book, a voice, and a bit of time into complex and powerful fuel for the heart, brain, and imagination. Grounded in the latest neuroscience and behavioural research, and drawing widely from literature, The Enchanted Hour explains the dazzling cognitive and social-emotional benefits that await children who are read to, whatever their class, nationality or family background. Meghan Cox Gurdon argues that this ancient practice is a fast-working antidote to the fractured attention spans, atomized families and unfulfilling ephemera of the tech era, helping to replenish what our devices are leaching away. For everyone, reading aloud engages the mind in complex narratives; for children, it's an irreplaceable gift that builds vocabulary, fosters imagination, and kindles a lifelong appreciation of language, stories and pictures. Bringing together the latest scientific research, practical tips, and reading recommendations, The Enchanted Hour will both charm and galvanize, inspiring readers to share this invaluable, life-altering tradition with the people they love most.

Life Love Book Excerpt:

DO YOU WANT TO BE DELIRIOUSLY, UNAPOLOGETICALLY HAPPY? IS IT POSSIBLE TO BE CALM, CENTRED AND GROUNDED WHILST LIVING IN A BUSY CITY, RUNNING A BUSINESS AND JUGGLING GROWN-UP RESPONSIBILITIES? In her previous book Daring and Disruptive, serial entrepreneur Lisa Messenger, editor-in-chief of The Collective magazine, shared the business lessons she learned after decades of success in multiple industries, including how to identify your true purpose, pinpoint your passions and visualise the work culture you want to exist in. But, Lisa admits that although her world now seems perfect on paper it hasn't always been this way. In Life & Love, she offers insights into the support system, strategies and relationships, which allow her to cope with the emotional rollercoaster of running a profitable, multi-platform start-up. Blending advice from mentors and role models, with lessons that she's learned the hard way, Lisa's personal journey is proof that no mistake is undoable, no relationship is unfixable and no failure is in vain if you have the right attitude and an abundance of gratitude. This is a book about love, joy and happiness, community, authenticity and learning to sink into your femininity even when you're a ball-breaking businesswoman. Lisa's message is; you can be a traditionalist and a rebel, you can be a lover and a fighter, you can be vulnerable and invincible. Whether you're an entrepreneur, a lawyer, a mother, a wife, a student or a blend of all the above, this book will teach you how to wear your heart on your sleeve, embrace every side of yourself and still achieve more than you ever imagined!
