Reviews

I've discovered a rare treat. A business book that's valuable and very funny too. When is the last time you read a business book that made you laugh out loud? Every month there seems to be scores of new books about different aspects of business. Very few focus on the special issues relating to running a business from home. And very, very few have ever made me laugh. This is an exception to the rule. Dave Sumner-Smith is the former Programme Director of Home Business Network and The telegraph Business Club.

Can I sue for emotional stress? OK Tony I am most displeased with you - you shouldn't have written such a funny book. Picture the scene - we are taking a family break down in Brighton and I have found a good deal at The Grand Hotel (swanky or what) One afternoon it is raining so I decide to have tea and a nice read in the lounge. I stupidly took 'Stripping for Freedom' (the forerunner of Freedom from Bosses Forever) with me and firstly had raised eyebrows from the waiter. Secondly and worst - I started laughing aloud so hard that it came out as a snort - v. embarrassing - other guests lowered their copies of the Telegraph and Wisden to look disapprovingly at me! Seriously it is so funny Tony.' Eva Davies, Owner of The Electric Zone.

Laughing out loud. I'm really enjoying reading this. Indeed my snort of laughter woke up a few sleeping travellers on a Brighton to Victoria train when I read the part about looking good being simply a matter of how well you tuck in your bits!

Nailed To The Cross

Nailed To The Cross

Synopsis:

What impact could the growth of a small local church in the heart of the nail making district of Sidemoor, Bromsgrove hope to have? The Ebenezer Methodist Chapel was called to serve the nailmakers, “The White Slaves of England.” It became the focal point of the small community. The church provided education, social support and above all hope.

A chance discovery of a glass jar buried deep under the pulpit started the investigation. It contained architects original drawings, a leader’s personal Bible, and mortgage and conveyance deeds going back to 1833. More importantly, it revealed the amazing story of men of vision who served the community. “Nailed To The Cross is that story.

A detailed study and well referenced analysis of the social history and impact of the Ebenezer Methodist Church in Sidemoor, Bromsgrove. This book would interest students of the History of Religion and anyone interested in the history of Bromsgrove and Nail Making.

FA Rules 1863:
1. Hacking is forbidden. Indeed, any attempt to gain information about future opponents will be frownd upon.
5. A player will be banned for life if he is caught throwing a match, especially if it is thrown at FA Headquarters, having first doused the building in oil.
13. Players must not use deodorants or perfumes in the players’ tunnel otherwise it could become confused with the Chanel Tunnel.
(From The Formation of the FA)

Instead of playing on a green surface, a giant flag of the host country shall be painted over the entire pitch (this idea was dropped when it was realised that all Isle of Man home matches would have to be played over three legs).
(From The First International Match)

Preston became the first Football League Champions. They negotiated all 22 league matches without defeat (from the observations of their fans they seemed to negotiate them without dehands, dearms, delegs and deheads too).
(From Preston North End: The Invisibles)

It was agreed to engage the services of The Archbishop of Canterbury to bless the grass as then the Wembley pitch would be considered hallowed turf. However, they needed to ensure that his Holiness was not standing in an offside position otherwise it would become dis-hallowed turf.
(From The White Horse Final)

How Tom Holland Eclipsed his Dad

how tom holland Eclipsed his dad

Synopsis:

The story of how a kid dances his way from London’s West End to Hollywood and overtakes his ‘celebrity’ dad on his way.

Dominic Holland is this ‘celebrity’ dad – a professional stand-up comedian and author. He has appeared on television many times including The Royal Variety Show and Have I Got News For You. He has had his own award winning BBC Radio Four series, The Small World of Dominic Holland. A published author, journalist and writer for other famous comedians…

So no slouch himself then.

But his eldest son, Tom, played Billy in BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL in London’s West End and then was cast in the leading role of Lucas in the film, THE IMPOSSIBLE, now on general release in cinemas worldwide.

As well as stand-up comedy, fortunately for this story, Dominic Holland has also taken a crack at Hollywood with his writing and compared to his son, with very contrasting results.

Tom flies back and forth to LA to accept and give out awards while his dad still treads the boards and in smaller and less salubrious venues that most egos could bear.

“How tom holland eclipsed his dad” is an extraordinary true story and a complete fluke. Without a drama lesson in site, let alone a stage school, how a young boy gets himself long listed for an Academy Award and gets to meet and mix with Hollywood’s glitterati is an interesting tale on its own – but the story is hilarious when set against the endeavours of his dad.

Written with great affection by a dad who is much more proud than he is bemused, this book will appeal to any parent who wants their kid to prevail and to any kid who casually dreams of becoming a star themself.
