              Dishonesty is the Second-Best Policy: And Other Rules to Live By
               

              Dishonesty is the Second-Best Policy: And Other Rules to Live By (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Mitchell, David

              ** THE NEW BOOK FROM THE AWARD-WINNING COMEDIAN AND WRITER** 'Mitchell is an exceptionally clever, eloquent and spot-on commentator. We should be grateful for him.' Daily MailDavid Mitchell's 2014 bestseller Thinking About It Only Makes It Worse must really have made people think... - because everything's got worse. We've gone from UKIP surge to Brexit shambles, from horsemeat in lasagne to Donald Trump in the White House, from Woolworths going under to all the other shops going under. It's probably socially irresponsible even to try to cheer up.But if you're determined to give it a go, you might enjoy this eclectic collection (or eclection) of David Mitchell's attempts to make light of all that darkness. Scampi, politics, the Olympics, terrorism, exercise, rude street names, inheritance tax, salad cream, proportional representation and farts are all touched upon by Mitchell's unremitting laser of chit-chat, as he negotiates a path between the commercialisation of Christmas and the true spirit of Halloween. Read this book and slightly change your life!'Mitchell combines breathtaking general knowledge with withering wit.' Guardian

              TRUST ME, I'M NOT A POLITICIAN: A simple guide to saving democracy (EPUB ebook)

              By Byrne, Dorothy

              In an age where more British people believe in aliens than trust our politicians, Dorothy Byrne asks the question: what went wrong and how can our trust in democracy and public life be regained? In this scintillating essay, nothing and no one escapes Byrne's razor-sharp wit as s...he takes on the politicians avoiding rigorous journalistic scrutiny, explores the pitfalls of impartiality, imagines what Plato might say to Trump - and calls out plenty of sexist bastards along the way. This is a ferocious, frank, and often wildly funny attempt to separate the truth from the lies at a time of national crisis.

              The State of Disbelief: A story of death, love and forgetting
               

              The State of Disbelief: A story of death, love and forgetting (EPUB ebook)

              By Rosenfeld, Juliet

              ''A beautifully written, profoundly moving and immersive account of grief that will bring solace.'' - Louise France, The Times A revelatory book about death and mourning by a psychotherapist faced with sudden bereavement. When Juliet Rosenfeld's husband dies of lung cancer ...only seven months into their marriage, everything she has learnt about death as a psychotherapist is turned on its head. As she attempts to navigate her way through her own devastating experience of loss, Rosenfeld turns to her battered copy of Freud's seminal essay 'Mourning and Melancholia'. Inspired by the distinction Freud draws between the savage trauma of loss that occurs at the moment of death - grief - and the longer, unpredictable evolution of that loss into something that we call mourning, Rosenfeld finds herself dramatically rethinking the commonly held therapeutic idea of 'working through stages of grief'. This is a beautifully written meditation on what the investment of love means and how to find your own path after bereavement in order for life to continue.
