By Marty Feldman
Completed before he died, thirty years ago, this is the newly discovered autobiography of one of the most influential comedians of recent times, Marty Feldman. Marty Feldman was one of the most essential creative forces in British comedy embodied also by his close friends and creative partners from Beyond the Fringe (especially Peter Cook and Dudley Moore) and Monty Python (especially John Cleese, Graham Chapman and Eric Idle).Marty played the fool, often very happily and with tremendous talent and volcanic, anarchic energy, for his entire life. Marty finished, and set aside eYE Marty soon before travelling to Mexico to shoot his final film. He did not know that he would die there, although he certainly felt he might die soon, and was haunted by the notion. The book is exactly as Feldman wrote it, with even the photos inserted where Feldman had noted they should go. Hilarious, deeply charming, aphoristic, ironic, charged throughout with lust for life and filled with scenes of great vanished eras and and portraits of other performers and friends, eYE Marty is the amazing discovery of the story of a man who was at the heart of the British comedy revolution.

Emotional Intelligence In A Week
By Jill Dann
Developing your emotional intelligence just got easierExperts are beginning to agree that types of intelligence other than IQ (Intelligence Quotient) have evolved as human capacities over the last two million years. Low Emotional Intelligence Quotient or EQ can be perceived as the absence of control over the outcome of a situation. Do you ever feel like this is the case - you keep getting 'poor luck' or cannot influence better results? When you have a high EQ, you are adept at interpreting the emotional roots of your thinking and behaviours and choosing your actions for beneficial outcomes. You may also be capable of making good insights into the behaviours and reactions of others through empathy and rapport.These topics are explored, step by step in Emotional Intelligence In A Week. You will gain an understanding of EI through finding out about:- Pessimism and optimism- Key milestones in the development of EI-related concepts- Measurement of EQ - a list of assessments - Identifying the benefits of 'emotional fitness'- How EI is learnable- When you get emotionally hijacked- How it will change you- How and why to keep a journal.Over this week-long course, you will cover:- Sunday: Learn how emotional intelligence is relevant to you and how and why there are benefits to developing higher levels.- Monday: Learn how heightened your self-awareness is and the implications on your life currently, for your personal life and as a leader of others.- Tuesday: Learn about the mechanisms of self-control, emotional memory and consciousness to take control of behavioural patterns.- Wednesday: Learn about stress identification and beneficial management strategies.- Thursday: Diagnose and explore change in your organization to create change, manage uncertainty and gain momentum.- Friday: Design and create a new emotionally literate culture, learning environment and a coaching ethos.- Saturday: Learn how to design and tailor successful personal development.

Eager to Love
By Richard Rohr
Francis of Assisi is one of the most beloved of all saints. Both traditional and entirely revolutionary, he was a paradox. He was at once down to earth and reaching toward heaven, grounded in the rich history of the Church while moving toward a new understanding of the world beyond.Richard Rohr, himself a Franciscan friar, draws on Scripture, insights from psychology, and literary and artistic references, to weave together an understanding of the tradition as first practiced by St Francis. Rohr shows how his own innovative theology is firmly grounded in the life and teaching of this great saint and provides a perspective on how his alternative path to the divine can deepen and enrich our spiritual lives.
