Anyway

Finding Personal Meaning in a Crazy World

By Kent M Keith

  • Paperback
  • £9.99

With a huge word-of-mouth following, these are timeless principles to live your life by in a contradictory world

People are illogical, unreasonable and self-centred. Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish motives. Do good anyway.

These commandments were first written down by Kent M. Keith for student leaders in the 1960s. Over the following years, they spread via word-of-mouth and became greatly valued - adopted by people far and wide.

Now, for the first time, Keith's inspiring commandments appear in this life-changing book, with each principle illustrated with inspiring stories from his own life, as well as classic examples from history. They offer a way of living far removed from the lifestyle that strives for the popular symbols of success: wealth, power and fame. Instead, these ten rational principles focus on the enriching personal meaning that comes through living our lives selflessly and without recognition.

Through accepting the Paradoxical Commandments and the paradoxical life, we are each truly free to be who we are really meant to be.

Authors:
Richard Heygate, Philip Carr-Gomm

Of all the countries in the world, England has the richest history of magical lore and practice.English authors such as J.R.R.Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Terry Pratchett, and J.K.Rowling, dominate the world of magic in fiction, but from the earliest times, England has also acted as home to generations of eccentrics and scholars who have researched and explored every conceivable kind of occult art.Most people are torn between a fascination with magic and an almost instinctive fear of the occult, of a world redolent with superstition and illusion. And yet more people now practice magic in England than at any time in her history.The Book of English Magic explores this hidden story, from its first stirrings to our present-day fascination with all things magical. Along the way readers are offered a rich menu of magical things to do and places to visit.

La Bella Figura

Beppe Severgnini
Authors:
Beppe Severgnini

'First of all, let's get one thing straight. Your Italy and out Italia are not the same thing. Italy is a soft drug peddled in predictable packages such as hills in the sunset, olive groves, white wine and raven haired girls. Italia, on the other hand, is a maze. It's alluring but complicated. In Italia you can go round and round in circles for years. Which of course, is great fun.' Beppe Severgnini was The Economist's Italian correspondent for ten years. A huge Anglophile as well as an astute observer of his countrymen, he's the perfect companion for this hilarious tour of modern Italy that takes you behind the seductive face it puts on for visitors - la bella figura - and uncovers the far more complex, paradoxical true self. Alongside the historic cities and glorious countryside, there'll be stops at the places where the Italians reveal themselves in all their authentic, maddening glory: the airport, the motorway and the living room. Ten days, thirty places. From north to south, from food to politics, from saintliness to sexuality. This witty and beguiling examination will help you understand why Italy, as Beppe says, 'can have you fuming and then purring in the space of a hundred metres or ten minutes.'
