Churchill By Himself

By Richard Langworth
Authors:
Richard Langworth
Winston Churchill (1874-1965) was one of the most inspiring leaders of the twentieth century, and one of its greatest wits. War reporter, Chancellor of the Exchequer, Prime Minister, Nobel Laureate, wordplay enthusiast, he was a powerful man of many words. Throughout his life, he moved, entertained, and sometimes enraged people with his notorious wit and razor-sharp tongue. Consequently, he is one of the most oft-quoted and misquoted leaders in recent history. Now in paperback, Churchill by Himself is the first fully annotated and attributed collection of Churchill sayings- edited by longtime Churchill scholar Richard M. Langworth and authorized by the Churchill estate- that captures Churchill's wit in its entirety.

Man with a Pram

By Stephen Mitchell, Jon Farry
Authors:
Stephen Mitchell, Jon Farry
The concept for MAN WITH A PRAM was born (excuse the pun) from the authors' observations that most men were not interested in the current pregnancy literature on the market. Added to this was the observation that many a pregnant partner seemed to befrustrated by this perceived lack of interest in pregnancy literature. Essentially, the current pregnancy literature isn't interesting for men because it's aimed at women, it's all a bit peaches and cream, a bit preachy, over-serious and well. . . Boring! Let's face it, most men would rather walk over broken glass (or watch sport) than read a book punctuated with fog lensed pictures of smiling pregnant women with chapters entitled 'How You'reFeeling'. The authors reasoned that for a pregnancy book to appeal to men it needed to state the facts of pregnancy issues while couching them in humour, science, statistics, trivia and male orientated advice: basically things that men like to read about.
