Available Now. Book Description: 'I hope the Romanian doesn't get through, because I can't pronounce her bloody name.' Allegedly from David Coleman, British radio and TV commentator, at one of his many Olympic coverages, when he thought he was off air. A Lifetime of Training for Just 10 Seconds is a collection of quotations from Olympic athletes, eyewitnesses and commentators through the ages, whether written, broadcast, overheard or misreported. They are inspiring, devastating - often hilarious - and a fascinating insight into the Games, the people who watch and compete in them, and those labouring and slithering behind the scenes. The notes following the quotes give a potted history of the Games and its cast of characters. 'These are the Olympics; you die before you quit.' The great American discus thrower, Al Oerter, winner of four successive gold medals (1956-1968). For the third of these in Tokyo, he competed despite excruciating pain from a torn rib cartilage, strapped up and iced. : About the Author: Richard Witt was Head of English Translations (2001-2004) for the Organising Committee of the Games of the XXVIII Olympiad.

Available Now. Book Description: We live in an age of waffle, mumbo-jumbo and bad thinking. We're forever being fed dodgy information by so-called experts, scientists, opinion-makers, politicians, journalists and jumped-up little graduates. Their combined bad thinking includes: : *the idea that no one should win in running races at school, in case the losers get upset: *the idea that owning a house in France is a decent way to spend your money : *the idea that we should all talk about our feelings and that would make things better: *speed cameras: *mineral water: *hummus: *and the fact that everyone reckons they've got asthma. : Why do we believe this nonsense? Because, as a nation we've forgotten the basic elements of common sense. Thank God then for Al Murray. Together with the collecting thoughts of hia locals, he's here to put good old-fashioned British common sense back where it belongs.: Review: One of the few TV performances that actually deserves the tag "genius". (Sun): Murray has reinvented the chatshow. At last, a resounding success for ITV. Light entertainment with brains. (Observer): Unstoppable comedy from the joke-telling machine gun (The Sunday Times): A showcase of ruthless stand-up brilliance.

"Christmas Houses" pays homage to the growing UK phenomenon of yuletide house-bling, capturing the best, the wildest, and the most sophisticated motion-sensitive Santas, light displays, and lit-up grottos from all over the country. : About the Author: John Hartley, Rob Harris and Samantha Manning have been friends for a couple of decades, since John and Sam played together in a high-school band that has long since been relegated to the dusty back-rooms of Isle of Wight local history. Rob and Sam meet a couple of years later at Winchester School of Art.

186105744X / 9781861057440 Softcover Very Good Condition 13.7 x 1.3 x 21.1 cm 
Available Now. Book Description: In all sporting contests, success and inspiration compete with failure and loss of nerve and football, being a relentlessly high-speed game, is particularly prone to crucial split-second moments of human fallibility and eccentricity. For every Ole Gunnar Solskjaer snatching last-minute glory in the Champions League Final there is somebody whose overconfidence or moment of self-doubt leaves the spectator clutching his head in disbelief. From Victorian times to the twenty-first century, Classic Football Clangers takes a look at some of the moments their perpetrators would rather forget - whether it's Germany's Oliver Kahn gifting the 2002 World Cup to Brazil, or Dennis Wise getting sent off four minutes after sending himself on as a substitute for Millwall - you're sure to find some of your favourite football gaffes in the pages of this book. Roberto Baggio, David Seaman, Gazza and Becks all make an appearance, not to mention a small army of penalty-fluffers and eccentric goalkeepers who all played a part in at least one toe-curling moment. This book will appeal to football lovers - or lovers of any sport - irrespective of age or ability, as a reminder of how human we are, and how ea : About the Author: By the time he left school, David Mortimer's ability to gift the game to the opposition was established, so he settled himself in on the terraces behind the goal at countless bloodcurdling encounters, and from this vantage point perfected an aptitude for spotting clangers being dropped up to a hundred metres away. His other titles published by Robson Books are Classic Cricket Clangers (ISBN 1861056133), Classic Rugby Clangers (1861056125) and the new book Classic Golf Clangers (1861057431).

We have had Jest books, Fun books, Comicalities, Wit books, etc., etc., ad nauseam; and in selecting the title as a fit one for the table (with out plates) spread for the feast of reason and the flow of soul, the Compiler has been guided by the character of the condiments prepared. The pungency of the pepper, the smoothness of the oil, the sharpness of the mustard, the attic salt, and, last and least, the acidity of the vinegar, will, he hopes, be found in such nice proportions as to justify his choice. Every care has been taken to exclude anything likely to offend the daintiest palate. W. Tegg '.

Book Description: This book is the result of many Friday evenings during the football season when Chris Kamara, preparing himself for commentaries the following day, and Richard Digance met up for a few beers and long chats about the sport they love. Either at Richard's house in the south when Kammy was at Frattan Park or St Mary's the following day, or at Kammy's house in Wakefield where Richard would stop off en route to filming his numerous appearances on Channel 4's Countdown, they began piecing together the content for this book of football trivia. : Kammy is one of the most popular of Sky's football pundits as well as being an ex-player and manager at the top level. Richard enjoys the same passion for football having been a director of Yeovil Town and a lifelong fan of West Ham his place of birth. : The two football trivia fans apologise for any inaccuracies which they blame on the late hours or the empty cans as they researched this book long into the night on many occasions. Not all trivia can be totally true but they both stress nothing was intentionally made up apart from the fact that Chris Kamara played 100 times for England and has more money than Roman Abramovich and that Richard married one of The Spice Girls before turning down a lucrative deal with Leyton Orient. : Footynotes: The Ultimate Countdown of Football Trivia is packed full of the best footie trivia which is sure to enhance the reader's standing at dinner parties, on football terraces and at pub quizzes. : From the Back Cover: This book is the result of many Friday evenings during the football season when Chris Kamara, preparing himself for commentaries the following day, and Richard Digance met up for a few beers and long chats about the sport they love.

Available Now. Book Description: The rise of an impressive new species of older man is hilariously and perceptively charted by journalist, broadcaster and producer Nick Baker. Groovy old men still move with the times. They're still into sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, still work, and see age as no reason to stop having fun. They were present at the birth of youth culture in the 50s, sighing with relief at missing National Service and reeling from the impact of Bill Haley. They're now part of a new breed of older men who are, as Nick Baker brilliantly argues in this unique, funny and occasionally touching book, on the march."Groovy Old Men" is packed full of interviews with experts and archetypes like designer Sir Paul Smith, radical Tariq Ali, veteran writer Ray Gosling, bioethics expert Professor John Harris and Mark Ellen, former member of Ugly Rumours, the band once led by Tony Blair. And lots of ordinary Groovy Old Men too. A humorous, entertaining and occasionally provocative commentary on older male life in the noughties, Nick Baker's book invents then dissects the Groovy Old Men phenomenon, and peers into the glamorous world of Groovy Old Men of the future. : Review: 'A fascinating subject for narcissists.' -- Stephen Bayley, New Statesman 'We have radio producer Nick Baker to thank for identifying a new social phenomenon called 'Groovy Old Men.' Like other good definitions I kick myself that I didn't think of it myself, as I instantly know what - and more important who - Groovy Old Men are.' -- Emma Soames, Saga Magazine 'Funny and observant' -- Daily Mail 'A deserved tribute to the first generation of men who didn't just turn into their fathers at 21.' -- The Word Magazine 'If the man in your life is still into sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, this one's for him.' -- Aberdeen Press & Journal "Groovy Old Men' are not just for Christmas shopping, they're for (a very long and groovy) life.' -- Kathryn Flett, Observer 'At home with modern technology, at ease with contemporary brands, books and bands and as keen on a pair of Converse All Stars as any Jumping Jack Flash a quarter their age, Groovy Old Men have utterly failed to age. But there is more to them than artfully cut chinos and a well-stocked iPod. Above all, Groovy Old Men have maintained a youthful curiosity that keeps them as excited by modern culture as they ever were when they discovered, say, the blues around the time they did their National Service.' -- Emma Soames, Saga Magazine 'A humorous and provocative commentary on the role and status of the more mature man in the 21st century.' -- Sunday Herald : About the Author: Nick Baker was born in 1952 and lives in London with his partner and two teenage sons. He has been [a] teacher, journalist, writer for teenagers, award-winning radio reporter (he's still a familiar voice on Radio 4) and producer. He runs Testbed, a long established radio and audio independent production company. Size: 20.3 x 2.2 x 13.8 cm. 240 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Humour; ISBN: 1848310390.

Available Now. Book Description: Bill Bryson turns away from the highways and byways of middle America, so hilariously depicted in his bestselling The Lost Continent, for a fast, exhilarating ride along the Route 66 of American language and popular culture.: In Made in America, Bryson de-mythologizes his native land - explaining how a dusty desert hamlet with neither woods nor holly became Hollywood, how the Wild West wasn't won, why Americans say 'lootenant' and 'Toosday', how Americans were eating junk food long before the word itself was cooked up - as well as exposing the true origins of the G-string, the original $64,000 question and Dr Kellogg of cornflakes fame.: Buy this book at once and have a nice day! : Amazon Review: Bill Bryson's "Informal History of the English Language in the United States" is, in a word, fascinating. After reading this tour de force, it's clear that a nation's language speaks volumes about its true character: you are what you speak. Bryson traces America's history through the language of the time, then goes on to discuss words culled from everyday activities: immigration, eating, shopping, advertising, going to the movies, and others. : Made in America will supply you with interesting facts and cocktail chatter for a year or more. Did you know, for example, that Teddy Roosevelt's "speak softly and carry a big stick" credo has its roots in a West African proverb? Or that actor Walter Matthau's given name is Walter Mattaschanskayasky? Or that the supposedly frigid Puritans--who called themselves "Saints," by the way--had something called a pre-contract, which was a license for premarital sex? Made in America is an excellent discussion of American English, but what makes the book such a treasure is that it offers much, much more. : Review: "A tremendously sassy work, full of zip, pizzazz and all those other great American qualities" (Will Self Independent on Sunday): "Immensely entertaining... a sharp eye for odd facts and amusing anecdotes" (Michael Sheldon Daily Telegraph): "The book is a triumph. Bryson carries it off by his joie de vivre, his unadorned prose and the sheer width of his snooping beneath the skin of the American dream" (Literary Review): "Funny, wise, learned and compulsive" (GQ) Size: 12.7 x 3.1 x 19.8 cm. 493 pages.

Humourous Sketches. 134 rough trimmed pages, size 8.25 inches tall by 7 inches. Illustrated with 10 black and white line drawings by E.OE.S. A commonplace book contains many Notions in Garrison, whence the owner may draw out an Army into the Field. So said the Reverend Thomas Fuller about three hundred years ago, and, rather later, a standard dictionary defines Notions as Something in the way of miscellaneous wares. The wares here are certainly miscellaneous. They range from Poltergeists to Passports, and the Garrison has even yielded a chapter about Little Dogs. (But when have the authors of An Irish P.M. been able to refrain from talking about Little Dogs ?)

Available Now. Book Description: Gregor Poppleton peels back the misconceptions about British customer service to show that the poor service received by customers in store is actually our greatest national treasure. : Serve Them Right: A Guide to British Customer Service takes the form of a spoof customer service manual. It explains that customer service in Britain is a complex and multi-layered system of behaviour, far more developed than in any other country, yet because of its complexity both the British public and visitors to the country fail to appreciate it, mistaking it as rude and unhelpful service! : Detailing the failings of British sales staff — from ignoring customers to talking relentlessly about themselves, from leaving queues of customers standing at tills to barely having the courtesy to say hello or goodbye to customers, from being surly and indifferent to believing that the most important task in a store is the organisation of staff breaks — Serve Them Right justifies each fault. Poppleton explains why - despite all appearances - the shop assistant's bad mannered behaviour is for the benefit of the customer. Size: 18 x 11.6 x 1 cm. 64 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Available Now. Torn Dustwrapper. Book Description: In Show and Tell, John Lahr, 'probably the most intelligent and insightful writer on theatre today' (The New York Times Book Review), reinvents the celebrity profile to get at the essence of performance. Lahr's utterly winning and incisive profiles probe some of the most compelling, elusive and irresistible public personas of our time, among them: Woody Allen, David Mamet, Ingmar Bergman, Frank Sinatra, Roseanne, Irving Berlin, Bob Hope, Mike Nichols, Wallace Shawn and Arthur Miller. In these, and the moving autobiographical portraits of his father, Bert Lahr, who was the Cowardly Lion in The Wizard of Oz, and his mother, a former Ziegfeld girl, Lahr charts the geography of fame. Lahr's gift is to get inside both the art and the artist, to show how the work and the life intersect. He has had unusual access to his subjects, who talk to him with rare candour. In prose 'as lively as good conversation' (Robert Brustein), he arrives at truths of uncommon clarity, a claim seconded by Arthur Miller, who said that Lahr's essay on him is 'by far the best thing about my stuff I've ever read.' These very special profiles, the product of eight years' work at The New Yorker, deepen our understanding of their subjects and the culture that they profoundly reflect. Show and Tell, like the icons whose lives and work it so meticulously chronicles, corrupts an audience with pleasure. : Review: 'A dazzling collection ... Lahr's craftsmanship is awesome' -- Sunday Times: 'By far the best thing about my stuff I've ever read' -- Arthur Miller: 'John Lahr manages to write better about theatre than anybody in the English language' -- Sir Richard Eyre: 'The greatest drama critic of my generation, indeed the best I've read here or in America since Tynan' -- Sheridan Morley, Literary Review: 'What a talented, wonderful, and complete writer' -- Mel Brooks : About the Author: John Lahr has been writing about theatre and popular culture for The New Yorker since 1992. He is the author of sixteen books, among them Dame Edna Everage and the Rise of Western Civilisation: Backstage with Barry Humphries, Notes on a Cowardly Lion: The Biography of Bert Lahr and Prick up your Ears: The Biography of Joe Orton, which was made into a film. John Lahr divides his time between New York and London. Size: 23.6 x 15.8 x 3.8 cm. 344 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Humour; ISBN: 0747554137. ISBN/EAN: 9780747554134.

Available Now. Book Description: If your idea of international relations is summed up more by 'bugger the Belgians' and 'a pox on the Poles' than 'I'd like to teach the world to sing', then The Big Book of National Insults is almost certainly the book for you. Culled from the murkiest and most biliously xenophobic depths of the (un)diplomatic bag, it presents over 1200 stinging examples of international ill will, odium and animosity. Take your seat at this table of Disunited Nations - and eat your fill of the bouillabaisse of bile, the dhansak of detestation, the lasagna of loathing, the paella of prejudice and the smorgasbord of spite. Whether it is the Russians reviling the Finns, the Dutch dissing the Turks or the British bashing just about everyone - and most spectacularly themselves - this is a place where absolutely everybody else is the one with the problem. 'We are the dirty armpit of Europe.' Ken Livingstone, quoted in The Independent, 18 March 1989 'Marry a German and you'll see that the women have hairy tongues.' Ruthenian saying : Review: From Ann Robinson on the Welsh ('What are they for?') to Freud on the United States ('America is a mistake, a giant mistake') this is the perfect, politically incorrect, amusing and scurrilous gift book. : About the Author: Julian L'Estrange lives in Stoke Newington.
