Book Description :

'If I'm going to tell the story of a life, my life, then I need to tell it warts and all. If the tale is too saccharine sweet then what can the reader take away from it? What do they learn about you? I've written everything down. The shit, the death, fun, naughtiness, addiction, laughter, laughter, laughter, some tears and lots of love and happiness. That to me is a better reflection of a human's life.' Nick's family life was difficult, blighted by alcoholism, illness and sudden misfortune meaning they lost everything overnight. He left school early and drifted from job to job dogged by his own personal demons. It's something of a miracle that Nick survived and even more that he would achieve such success with his writing, acting and comedy. In Truths, Half Truths and Little White Lies Nick paints a brilliantly funny, moving and brutally candid portrait of childhood, adolescence and eventual success.

Book Description :

The best organizations have the best talent. . . Financial incentives drive company performance. . . Firms must change or die. Popular axioms like these drive business decisions every day. Yet too much common management “wisdom” isn’t wise at all—but, instead, flawed knowledge based on “best practices” that are actually poor, incomplete, or outright obsolete. Worse, legions of managers use this dubious knowledge to make decisions that are hazardous to organizational health. Jeffrey Pfeffer and Robert I. Sutton show how companies can bolster performance and trump the competition through evidence-based management, an approach to decision-making and action that is driven by hard facts rather than half-truths or hype. This book guides managers in using this approach to dismantle six widely held—but ultimately flawed—management beliefs in core areas including leadership, strategy, change, talent, financial incentives, and work-life balance. The authors show managers how to find and apply the best practices for their companies, rather than blindly copy what seems to have worked elsewhere. This practical and candid book challenges leaders to commit to evidence-based management as a way of organizational life—and shows how to finally turn this common sense into common practice.

You've heard of these groups - the secretive ones that only the crème de la crème are invited into, the ones outsiders speculate about for centuries - I'm the second in my family invited to attend, but to them, I'm fresh meat. New blood. New money, too. They think they'll elbow past me, that I'm here for their amusement, for them to walk all over, they'll find out soon enough that I'm not. I may look like one of them, with my designer bags and clothes straight from the Parisian runways, but I'm not. I'm here for answers, to take revenge for blood spilled on their centuries-old Persian rugs. I transferred here in search for answers about what happened to my older brother, who hightailed out of here, and my friend who seemingly disappeared into thin air. I certainly wasn't here for the attention of the star hockey player, regardless of how much he willed my eyes his way. I wasn't here for his scrutiny or his judgment or to read into his mysterious aura. I was here for the society, because only they held the answers I needed. That was, until I found out that in order to get those answers, I needed to go through him. He's saying if I want in, I have to play by their rules, follow their lead. It's a game I'm willing to play. I may be the second person I know of to be invited into their society, but I'll be the first to make it out intact. *This is a complete standalone novel*

Tatum Alexander is so close to realizing her dream of becoming a sous chef she can taste it, but working at her ex-fiancé's restaurant with his new girlfriend was never in her career plan. To save face and prove she's moved on, Tatum cooks up a lie that she's in a relationship with her best friend's superhot cousin. There's just one problem: Jason only recently moved to town, and he has no idea they're already "dating." Jason's a recovering ladies' man who shouldn't be on the menu, but that doesn't mean he's immune to Tatum's quirky charm. Giving her lie a kernel of truth, they decide some no-strings-attached fun between the sheets can't hurt. But as Tatum's forced to keep making up stories to cover her original fib, she has a hard time separating what's real and what's fake--including her feelings for Jason. With too many tales spun, Tatum can only watch in horror as her collection of yarns begins to unravel, leaving everyone she cares about feeling betrayed. After so many lies, will it be too late to set the record straight? And more importantly, will she be able to convince Jason there's truth in their love?

What better way to contemplate history than to start at the beginning, in the book of Genesis. The late Andy Rooney struck a chord with me that I have been grappling with for some time. In his article (June 3, 2011), he opined, and I quote: I dont think many people who get deep into the study of philosophy are that religious. I dont think the two subjects fit together well. Religion is believing. Philosophy is skeptical. Its skeptical of religion. Its even skeptical of philosophy.

Book Description :

While doing research in 1987 Caesar Squitti noticed that many social programs dealing with the traditional family unit had been corrupted. Programs were based on deceptive half-truths; problem was that the definition of half-truth was incorrect. Observations, research and logic suggested that the world definitions of three important concepts, "truth", "half-truth" and "lie" were incorrect. There appeared to be a correlation between the new proposed definition of Truth and the scientific properties of Light. This relationship was labelled, The Jesus Christ Code: The LIGHT: The Rainbow of Truths. It is being proposed that this may indeed be the "original sin" from the Garden of Eden that has remained with us. The Light: The Rainbow of Truths, explores how we can be deceived by truth, and how this is a challenge to critical thinking in our society. Observations in a wide spectrum of related subjects include politics, social programs, health care and religion. This truth about Truth, that truth may lie, will hopefully set us free from this negative dimension to Truth and allow us to think in colors. The Truth can be stranger than fiction. The Jesus Christ Code builds "a bridge" between science and religion. This discovery may be "the key" to unlock the "gates" to the Garden of Eden. This book examines the quote posed by Pontius Pilate, "What is Truth?"

Book Description :

There are many types of lies, but perhaps the most dangerous and deceptive of all is the half-truth. A manipulative distortion of truth, it sounds convincing but is destructively distant from what is true. Flip Michaels tackles five half-truths that are commonly used as arguments against the validity of the Bible, Christianity, God, Christ and faith. He clearly and engagingly unveils the whole truth and explains why understanding the whole meaning is crucial. These five truths are: The Bible was written by men and inspired by God. All religions are the same, except Christianity. God is love and holy, holy, holy. Jesus is truly a man and truly God. Our good deeds matter when preceded by faith. A useful evangelistic tool, a helpful clarification for new believers or a valuable reminder for those who have been believers for a long time.

'EVERYONE should read Eva Dolan' Mark Billingham When the police are called to the report of a late-night shooting, they expect it to be drugs or gang-related. They don't expect to find a young student executed on his way home. Jordan Radley was an aspiring journalist: hard working, well-liked, dedicated. His first major story – looking at the fallout following the closure of a major local factory – had run recently and looked to be the first step in his longed-for career. Even after the story ran, Jordan continued to stay in contact with those he interviewed: he was on his way back from their social club the night he was murdered. But as the detectives quickly discover, not only was Jordan killed, but those responsible also broke into his house, taking his laptop and notes. What was he researching that might have led to his death? And can this really be linked to another case – long ruled an accident – in the same area? Or are the police being forced to prioritise those with the best connections rather than the ones that most need their help? From the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award nominated author, Eva Dolan, this novel is perfect for fans of Susie Steiner, Sarah Hilary and Jane Casey. __________________________________________ Praise for Eva Dolan: 'Dolan is expert at the orchestration of tension' Guardian 'Elegantly crafted, humane and thought-provoking.
