Top books for Anglophiles, music lovers and factoholics!
Revolution in the Head: The "Beatles" Records and the Sixties
"A book as deep and well written as the songs themselves. Analyses their musical trickery, pschoanalyses their lyrics, and reflects upon their influence on the sixties and the western world. Brilliant."
A Brief History Of Time: From Big Bang To Black Holes
"Prepare to be amazed at the sheer scale of the universe, and have your mind bent around some awesome theories. Even lightly touches some religious and philosophical ground."
England and Wales in a Flash
"Witty and slightly satirical. Father and son travel the coastline. Observations, humour and pink milkshake abound. You don't even have to be a pharophiliac to enjoy this!"
Round Ireland With A Fridge
"Comedian, Tony Hawkes hitch-hikes round Ireland with a refridgerator for a bet. Hilarious yarn. Involves fridge-surfing and sleeping in a kennel!"
The English. A Portrait of a People
"You may not necessarily agree with him, but Newsnight's finest leaves no stone unturned in his disection of the English nation. So much more than just afternoon tea and neatly mowed lawns!"
Performing Artist: The Music of Bob Dylan, 1960-1973
"Bob Dylan's most acclaimed years. Paul Williams is really a true fan who is not afraid to criticise. A great companion to some great albums."
"We are all numerologists every time we play the lottery. Be amazed by the facts, and marvel at the patterns inherent in numbers. Easy to dip in and out of."
Fat Man on a Roman Road
"From Devon to Scotland on a pushbike. Tom Vernon meets numerous characters along the way and even cycles the Humber Bridge! A great read."
The Last Three Minutes: Speculating About the Fate of the Cosmos (SCIENCE MASTERS)
"A brief future of time? We all want to know how it will end, even though we won't be there. There's even just a glimmer of hope for life. Universe without end?"
Notes From A Small Island
"American, Bill Bryson tours the UK by public transport and ends up drenched in Weston Super Mare. Very funny. Great Observations."
The Top 10 of Everything 2003
"Always a great read for lovers of lists. I have the 92 edition. As essential as the Guinness book of records to factaholics."
Who Said What When: Chronological Dictionary of Quotations
"A history of mankind from the bible to the Thatcher era. A quote for every occasion, from the profound to the political to the pithy!"
George W. Bushisms: The Slate Book of Accidental Wit and Wisdom of Our 43rd President: The Slate Book of the Accidental Wit and Wisdom of Our 43rd President
"'They misunderestimated me'. Or did they? Hilarious verbal mishaps from America's funniest president."
An Intelligent Person's Guide to Modern Culture
"Definitely not a light read, but certainly rewarding for anybody searching for meaning in this post-post-modern era. If you like Wagner it probably helps!"
How to Take a Chance (Pelican)
"A light introduction to the world of probability, from gambling on 'heads or tails' to monkeys typing the complete works of Shakespeare."
Attention All Shipping: A Journey Round the Shipping Forecast (Radio 4 Book of the Week)
"Another nautically themed travel book. Contains interesting facts such as the principality of Sealand and visits some lesser known areas just across the water from the UK."
Mud, Sweat and Beers
"A humorous account of a hike from Kent to Somerset, complete with talking wood pigeons and dream sequences. Does what it says on the tin."
Watching the English: The Hidden Rules of English Behaviour
"Ever felt you didn't get given the rule book for life? This is pretty much it if you live in England. Suddenly life will make perfect sense!"
