The first book in twenty-five years from Jerry Seinfeld features his best work across five decades in comedy. Since his first performance at the legendary New York nightclub Catch a Rising Star as a twenty-one-year-old student in autumn of 1975, Jerry Seinfeld has written his own material and saved everything. 'Whenever I came up with a funny bit, whether it happened on a stage, in a conversation, or working it out on my preferred canvas - the big yellow legal pad - I kept it in one of those old-school accordion folders,' Seinfeld writes. 'So I have everything I thought was worth saving from forty-five years of hacking away at this for all I was worth.' For this book, Jerry Seinfeld has selected his favourite material, organised decade by decade. In page after hilarious page, one brilliantly crafted observation after another, readers will witness the evolution of one of the great comedians of our time and gain new insights into the thrilling but unforgiving art of writing stand-up comedy.

The first book in twenty-five years from “one of our great comic minds” (The Washington Post) features Seinfeld’s best work across five decades in comedy. Since his first performance at the legendary New York nightclub “Catch a Rising Star” as a twenty-one-year-old college student in fall of 1975, Jerry Seinfeld has written his own material and saved everything. “Whenever I came up with a funny bit, whether it happened on a stage, in a conversation, or working it out on my preferred canvas, the big yellow legal pad, I kept it in one of those old school accordion folders,” Seinfeld writes. “So I have everything I thought was worth saving from forty-five years of hacking away at this for all I was worth.” For this book, Jerry Seinfeld has selected his favorite material, organized decade by decade. In this “trove of laugh-out-loud one-liners” (Associated Press), you will witness the evolution of one of the great comedians of our time and gain new insights into the thrilling but unforgiving art of writing stand-up comedy.

Robert Fogelin here collects fifteen of his essays, organized around the theme of interpreting philosophical texts. The essays place particular emphasis on understanding the argumentative or dialectical role that passages play in the specific context in which they occur. The somewhat surprising result of taking this principle seriously is that certain traditional, well-worked texts are given a radical re-interpretation. Throughout the essays reprinted here, Fogelin argues that, when carefully read, the philosophical position under consideration has more merit than commonly believed. Included are essays dealing with texts from the works of Plato, Aquinas, Hume, Berkeley, Kant, Price, Hamilton, and Wittgenstein.

The Art of Unpredictability

Predictability and unpredictability. Each person's balance is different. Some people value more chaos, and others value more structure. Where that line is drawn is up to you. This book highlights the unpredictable side.

What could a book titled The Art of Unpredictability be about? This is probably why you're skimming through the description to decide if this is worth the time, or if it will end up as another Amazon purchase you'll leave on a bookshelf to collect dust. Honestly, this book is more about balance than anything. You see, we all need an equal balance of routine and surprise in our lives. Predictability and unpredictability. Each person's balance is different. Some people value more chaos, and others value more structure. Where that line is drawn is up to you. This book highlights the unpredictable side. Because I think most people tend to steer toward structure and aim to control their life when they really should let go and just say "yes" more often. That guy who has excuses all the time? I hate that guy. I've collected the best moments and challenges of Las Vegas adventures, Coldplay concerts, and major car crashes to reveal how you can develop my strongest personality trait-being completely unpredictable. I hope that as you venture through each chapter's stories, you'll be more inspired to take on each day as if it were a videogame. You get to create your own rules, the boundaries are limited only by your creativity, and the best part is that anything is possible... I know, you've heard that before. But how many people do you know who actively prove it?

English Country Lanes is a lyrical celebration of the beauties of the lanes of the English countryside. Gareth Lovett Jones, who has travelled through and photographed the lanes for over twenty years, has produced, in a perfect unity of text and pictures, the most comprehensive book on the lanes yet published.The emphasis throughout is on exploring by bicycle - 'pootling' in the words of the author - and the book rejects the stance of conventional guide books, which lead the reader passively by the hand, and replaces it with an exhortation to pioneering independence. By giving details of ten networks ranging from Yorkshire to Somerset, he demonstrates how we can all discover the delights of the lanes for ourselves. The book also takes a long hard look at the destruction going on unnoticed every day in the countryside and calls for measures to stop this and to begin restoring something of what has been lost.A combination of celebration and elegy, English Country Lanes is a visual feast as well as thought-provoking and exhilarating.
