The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present

From his early Liverpool days, through the historic decade of The Beatles, to Wings and his long solo career, The Lyrics pairs the definitive texts of 154 Paul McCartney songs with first-person commentaries on his life and music. Spanning two alphabetically arranged volumes, these commentaries reveal how the songs came to be and the people who inspired them: his devoted parents, Mary and Jim; his songwriting partner, John Lennon; his “Golden Earth Girl,” Linda Eastman; his wife, Nancy McCartney; and even Queen Elizabeth, among many others. Here are the origins of “Let It Be,” “Lovely Rita,” “Yesterday,” and “Mull of Kintyre,” as well as McCartney’s literary influences, including Shakespeare, Lewis Carroll, and Alan Durband, his high-school English teacher.

With images from McCartney’s personal archives―handwritten texts, paintings, and photographs, hundreds previously unseen―The Lyrics, spanning sixty-four years, becomes the definitive literary and visual record of one of the greatest songwriters of all time.

Atlas of the Heart: Mapping Meaningful Connection and the Language of Human Experience

In Atlas of the Heart, Brown takes us on a journey through eighty-seven of the emotions and experiences that define what it means to be human. As she maps the necessary skills and an actionable framework for meaningful connection, she gives us the language and tools to access a universe of new choices and second chances—a universe where we can share and steward the stories of our bravest and most heartbreaking moments with one another in a way that builds connection.

Over the past two decades, Brown’s extensive research into the experiences that make us who we are has shaped the cultural conversation and helped define what it means to be courageous with our lives. Atlas of the Heart draws on this research, as well as on Brown’s singular skills as a storyteller, to show us how accurately naming an experience doesn’t give the experience more power, it gives us the power of understanding, meaning, and choice.

Brown shares, “I want this book to be an atlas for all of us, because I believe that, with an adventurous heart and the right maps, we can travel anywhere and never fear losing ourselves.”

A Simple Guide to Popular Science

A SIMPLE GUIDE TO POPULAR PHYSICS

Unlike many textbooks or popular science books, A Simple Guide to Popular Physics has truly been crafted for the uninitiated or those spooked by the subject’s complexity.

Harris’s inviting guide promises to give “absolute beginners” from “teens to centenarians” a basic grounding in particle physics, quantum physics, and cosmology-all without making readers do math. With the goal of introducing the basics and encouraging readers to explore more deeply afterwards, Harris notes “Like the fish we have no notion of what is beyond the boundaries of our knowledge, but unlike the fish, we know there is something.” He starts by presenting those boundaries, the fundamentals of classic physics (Newton’s law, states of matter, types of energy), with crisp clarity before laying out an accessible explanation of Einstein’s theory of relativity, the structure of the atom, the mysteries of quantum mechanics and cosmology.
Readers will not need to search online for key terms or explanations of concepts that have been glossed over. Instead, one by one, with patience and good humor, Harris introduces each of these building blocks of our universe, taking a little time to invite readers to contemplate the momentousness of the information, as in the chapter titled nothing less than “What Is Reality?”
The watchword, here, is clarity, which Harris offers throughout, with professional illustrations and illuminating accounts of experiments and breakthroughs, offering

18 Holes of Quantum Golf

This books’ a difficult one to categorize as it’s a love story wrapped up in an enigma inside a round of golf.

Its main aim is to provide the reader with a simple account of how us humans have gained our current knowledge of the only universe that we’re every likely to inhabit. It’s the story told in normal everyday language of the many brilliant thinkers from Thales, who lived in the ancient Greek city-state of Miletus 2,600 years ago, to our current understanding by way of Galileo, Newton, Einstein and many others. The eventual aim of science is that one day they’ll be able to explain to us why we have a universe and tell us where it came from.

It’s not written like a normal popular science book, but as a story told in friendly and humorous conversations between two senior citizens who’ve been best pals since their first day at primary school. The main characters are Alec and Bob who, although now living a distance apart, meet five or six times a year to compete for their own trophy which is a pair of worthless ten shilling banknotes encased in a plastic beer mat. As well as being a symbol of their friendship, the ownership of this small square of plastic has become almost as important to them as their wives and children.

The story includes the boys’ wives, Brenda and Alice, along with Jean who’s a dedicated amateur thespian and has been the girl’s best friend since early schooldays. The last character is Frank, a golfing mate of the boys whose been described by Bob’s wife Alice as ‘that randy laddie who’s the cause of us meeting you pair!’ Today’s game in which Bob is hoping to recapture their trophy, was mooted several months previously to coincide with Jeans last performance before she retires after fifty years of sterling service with The Players, a local amateur dramatic society,

While they’re waiting to out on their odyssey, Bob and Alec are approached in the clubhouse by Frank who’s with a small group waiting to go in for lunch. He asks Alec if he would

Sonnets to Live

ADVANCED READER’S REVIEWS OF THE SONNETS

“Having thoroughly enjoyed reading these sonnets, I feel quite restored after experiencing live poetry”.

“From the very first sonnet, ‘Garden of Love’, I was instantly captivated by this book, which I read sonnet after sonnet, hoping they would never end”.

“For me, this book reveals how much poetry is missing in our lives, it must be difficult to write poetry at a time when we prefer to read novels and watch tv series, that is why I feel the need to tell others to enrich their time with these outstanding poems”.

“I think all the sonnets are truly admirable and my favourites are ‘Hymn’, ‘A Star’, ‘Discussions with the Driver’, ‘The fourth season’, ‘Never ending’,’ Pearls’, ‘The written path’ and ‘The Southern Cross’”.

“The ‘Sonnets to Live’ title of this book is in perfect accordance with the poet’s life, as he declares openly that poetry is his daily sustenance”.

“What I keep in store from this collection of sonnets is the outpouring of love and the adventure of walking in a forest of trees of all colours and forms, each one taking us into different poetic dimensions”.

“I would take this book to my desert island and read aloud every day the ones that impacted me most: ‘Birds’, ‘The only one’, ‘The fields of peace’, ‘Design’, ‘Ecstasy’, ‘The red one’, ‘She’, ‘Brother of the Sea’, ‘Rays’…”

“I am so impressed by these sonnets that I dare say even Shakespeare, who excelled in this poetic form, would confirm the high quality of the ‘Sonnets to Live’, covering so many instances of life with great artistry”.

The Infinite Tree & The Rivers of Time: Time, Experience, & The Foundations of Reality

Somewhere near the heart of existence, shimmers the ethereal beauty of the mystery of Time. Though seemingly familiar to us all, time harbours secrets that penetrate the very deepest levels of reality, and though we feel certain in our conviction that we’re swept forth upon the crest of its never-ending flow, with Einstein’s discovery of relativity came what is perhaps the most stunning realisation in the entire history of scientific thought – the wondrously breathtaking revelation that in reality, there’s actually no such thing as the passage of time…

How can this extraordinary truth be reconciled with the reality we so surely suppose to experience? What does it mean for the very human concerns of life and death, free will, identity, and self? What should it mean for our philosophy? And how should it inform our world view?

The search for answers leads through the fantastical realm of quantum physics, and the strange parallel worlds it describes, as we discover that the answers which such questions provoke, are perhaps even more profound than the questions themselves.

Buried deep within the riddle of time, lies the staggering beauty of the world. As we peel back the layers to try and sneak a glimpse into eternity, we find a light shining not only upon the nature of reality, but on the nature of ourselves…

SPEECH! How Language Made Us Human

What makes us human? Why are we the only animals who wear clothes, drive cars, trawl the internet, and fly helicopters on Mars? It’s all because we’ve learnt to talk: yet remarkably, we still don’t know how we did it. SPEECH! suggests an answer that’s been hiding in plain sight – the simple yet radical shift that turned our analog grunts and shrieks into words. But its consequences are far from simple: being able to share ideas through language was an evolutionary tipping point – it allowed us to link up our minds. SPEECH! traces our roller-coaster ride with language from hunter-gatherer to urban hipster: the epic tale of the struggle for knowledge against the false gods of culture, religion and identity – as we teeter toward a destination we may still resist, but ultimately cannot escape.

Leadership 4.0: Proven Habits for Sustainable Success in the Digital World

We are in the heart of a fascinating era in human evolution, when technological progress is challenging the human role in work and society. Even in the face of an unprecedented crisis like COVID-19, technology is helping us in incredible ways.

While some of us see limitless possibilities for growth during this time of massive change, the majority of our population is nervous about the advent of artificial intelligence and the challenges these advances pose to their livelihood-and to some extent, their role in society in general. Similar to individuals, organizations also fear the potential of being disrupted by technology.

He believes human imagination and advancing technology have brought us to the most exciting juncture in history, an era that has come to be known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, or Industrial Revolution 4.0.

Key takeaways from Leadership 4.0

The Stolen Dream

The book examines a period when football underwent a seismic and ineradicable change brought about by the determination of the Victorian Football League to wrest control of the game’s development and destiny from the various state controlling bodies and the Australian Football Council. Whereas the VFL had initially been the first among equals, it gradually assumed the role of the sole and undisputed guardian of the code. The AFC, once football’s ostensible national controlling body, became an irrelevance. Instead of a national sport with a national remit we ended up with an expanded VFL with a majority of Victorian member clubs supplemented by a token sprinkling of teams from interstate. Such teams were in most cases created from scratch and could in no way be said to derive directly from the states’ unique and distinctive football traditions and culture. For some, it was a brave new world, but evolution does not inevitably entail improvement
