When Dave Allen passed away in March 2005, we lost a true comedy great. Sitting cross-legged on a high stool, whiskey in one hand, cigarette in the other, Dave Allen's exasperated commentaries on the absurdities of modern life struck a chord with millions of fans in Britain, Ireland and Australia for over four decades. He was a compelling storyteller - able to spin shaggy dog stories out of the almost any subject, including the missing tip of his fourth finger of his left hand, for which he provided various unlikely explanations. But his gentle, laconic wit could also give way to ferocious attacks on the media, the state and, most famously, the Catholic Church. He was a unique talent - a comic who could make his audiences laugh, cry, and be shocked, all in one. This official celebration of Dave Allen's comedy has been drawn together by Graham McCann - Britain's best-loved entertainment writer. It is a treasure trove of stories, stand-up routines, sketches, interviews and photos, which takes us on a journey from the cradle to the grave. It will delight Dave Allen's million of fans, old and new alike. 'Dave Allen was our greatest storyteller and nobody ever came close to his ability to spin a yarn. He was unique, right up there with the greats.' Jack Dee

ABOUT THE BOOK I think entrepreneurs, because of their high level of achievement and drive, are constantly looking at ways to do things faster, better, smarter; I am no exception. As an overly busy businesswoman, I was drawn to the title of the book, as I was looking for productivity tools that I would actually use on a regular basis. In the hopes that the pages contained a magic wand, I quickly scanned through them for the one tip that I could immediately use -- something that would make a dent in my workload. I was also very drawn to the concept of having a quiet, clutter-free mind. What I liked about David Allen’s “Getting Things Done: The Art of stress-Free Productivity” was that there was a certain simplicity to his suggestions for getting organized. MEET THE AUTHOR Ms. Larisa Troche is a multi-preneur as founder and CEO of her company The Larisa Group which provides professional management and consulting services for small business and real estate. She is also the founder of Pink Passport Society, Inc. the premier worldwide “insider’s club” for women creating wealth through community and connections. Larisa holds a California Real Estate Broker’s license, a Masters in Business Administration, and a Bachelor’s degree in Human Relations Management. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Next, in Part II, Practicing Stress-free Productivity, the whole system unfolds and it’s finally time to begin, starting with preparing the time, space and tools for implementing the techniques. Extra attention needs to be paid to correctly setting up your filing system, which should include a General Reference File (emails, brochures, notes, etc. that you want to retain for future use); using one alphabetic filing system (not multiple iterations for different projects). Start with all the physical things that aren’t where they should be. Ideally you’ll want to try and put everything into your in-basket (literally). Once you’ve collected all the “things” it is time to empty your brain and make a list of every single thing, every mental to-do, on a separate sheet of paper -- not one long list. Emptying your brain includes writing your voicemails down and putting them in the inbox as well as your day planner if you use one. Buy a copy to continue reading!

“I wrote and illustrated this book to help every inquisitive birder, from novice to expert. Whether you can identify six birds or six hundred, you’ll be a better birder if you have a grounding in the real nuts and bolts of what birds look like, and your skills will be even sharper if you know exactly what to look for and how to record what you see.” —David Allen Sibley The Sibley Guide to Birds and The Sibley Guide to Bird Life and Behavior are both universally acclaimed as the new standard source of species information. And now David Sibley, America’s premier birder and best-known bird artist, takes a new direction; in Sibley’s Birding Basics he is concerned not so much with species as with the general characteristics that influence the appearance of all birds and thus give us the clues to their identity. To create this guide, David Sibley thought through all the skills that enable him to identify a bird in the few instants it is visible to him. Now he shares that information, integrating an explanation of the identification process with many painted and drawn images of details (such as a feather) or concepts. Birding Basics begins by reviewing how one can get started as a birder: the equipment necessary, where and when to go birding, and perhaps most important, the essential things to look for when birds appear in the field. Using many illustrations, David Sibley reviews all the basic concepts of bird identification and then describes the variations (of shape, size, and color) that can change the appearance of a bird over time or in different settings. And he issues a warning about “illusions and other pitfalls”—and advice on avoiding them. The second part of the book, also plentifully illustrated, deals with another set of clues, the major aspects of avian life that differ from species to species: feathers (color, arrangement, shape, molt), behavior and habitat, and sounds. This scientifically precise, beautifully illustrated volume distills the essence of David Sibley’s own experience and skills, providing a solid introduction to “naming” the birds. With Sibley as your guide, when you learn how to interpret what the feathers, the anatomical structure, the sounds of a bird tell you—when you know the clues that show you why there’s no such thing as “just a duck”—birding will be more fun, and more meaningful. An essential addition to the Sibley shelf! From the Trade Paperback edition.

UNLOCK THE MEANING OF EASTERN MAGICK In scope and clarity, there is no book that can compare to The Eastern Mysteries. This reissue of David Allen Hulse's landmark work is the one book all students of the occult must own. It catalogs and distills, in hundreds of tables of secret symbolism, the true import of each ancient Eastern magickal tradition. Each chapter is a key that unlocks the meaning behind one of the magickal languages. Through painstaking research and analysis, Hulse has accomplished an unprecedented feat -- that of reconstructing the basic underlying systems that form the vast legacy of mystery traditions. The real genius of this accomplishment is that it is presented in a way that is immediately understandable and usable. Although the book deals with many foreign scripts, ancient tongues, and lost symbols, it is designed for the beginning student. Included is a wealth of cross references, excellent introductory material and overviews, an extensive annotated bibliography, and -- new to this edition -- a complete index.
