    The Third Jesus: How to Find Truth and Love in Today’s World , by Dr Deepak Chopra

    In this dazzling book, one of the most influential spiritual thinkers of our time provides an answer that is as challenging as it is uplifting. Deepak Chopra searches for the Christ who stands at the heart of Christianity and discovers the identity of Jesus is threefold.Firstly, there is Jesus the man, who lived over 2000 years ago and whose sermons form the foundation of Christian theology. Secondly, there is Jesus the Son of God, who represents a specific branch of religion. Finally, there is the Third Jesus, the spiritual guide whose teachings embrace humanity as a whole.By considering each of these separate figures, Chopra allows us to decide for ourselves which of them speaks the most clearly to us today. As we become familiar with the universal wisdom of Christ, most especially through the guidance of the Third Jesus, we may become more open to a truly loving spirituality. And we will begin to create a brighter future, free from hatred fuelled by religious fundamentalism.

    The Upside Down Reader, by Jug Suraiya

    Written by the inimitable Jug Suriya the following four books are a reader’s delight. Juggling Act contains a selection of 76 columns by Jug Suraiya. Witty, satirical and hilarious, the book makes for a riveting read. Second Opinion is a collection of his writings from the column by the same name. Calcutta — A City Remembered invites you to delve into the heart of Calcutta. While The Upside Down Reader compiled from the ideal third edit is like a snowflake: a transitory whimsy that is so timelessly unique that it can never be replicated.

    The Upstart , by Catherine Cookson

    The Upstart is a historical novel from Catherine Cookson set amidst the turbulent social currents of rural England at the turn of the century.Risen to power and influence, Samuel Fairbrother, a newly monied manufacturer and retailer of boots, shoes, and clogs, decided that his new station in life deserved a more imposing residence. When a thirty-four-room mansion on the outskirts of Fellburn became available, he established himself as the owner of the property he saw as the emblem of his wealth and a suitable reward for his new, exalted status in the business community. Along with the house, Fairbrother inherited the services of a staff of servants headed by Maitland, the butler, who made it plain his new boss was not the gentleman his predecessor had been but was no more than an upstart.So began a clash of wills between master and man, in which Samuel Fairbrother soon realised he is at a distinct disadvantage. Maitland, urbane and apparently well educated, was ingenious at maintaining a position of indispensability. Fairbrother was all too aware that he dare not do without Maitland’s services and was forced to conclude that he would never win this conflict. And so an uneasy truce was declared between them.As the years went by and the century turned, Fairbrother’s children left the big house and made lives of their own – all except his eldest daughter, Janet, who by means of a legacy was able to shape the destiny of her father’s scattered family and effect the reconciliation that he thought was impossible.The Upstart is a brilliant novel that captures vividly the conflicts of class in the society of the late nineteenth century.

    The World is Flat: The Globalized World in the Twenty-first Century, by Thomas L. Friedman

    , ,
    The beginning of the twenty-first century will be remembered, Friedman argues, not for military conflicts or political events, but for a whole new age of globalization – a ‘flattening’ of the world. The explosion of advanced technologies now means that suddenly knowledge pools and resources have connected all over the planet, levelling the playing field as never before, so that each of us is potentially an equal – and competitor – of the other. The rules of the game have changed forever – but does this ‘death of distance’, which requires us all to run faster in order to stay in the same place, mean the world has got too small and too flat too fast for us to adjust? Friedman brilliantly demystifies the exciting, often bewildering, global scene unfolding before our eyes, one which we sense but barely yet understand. The World is Flat is the most timely and essential update on globalization, its successes and its discontents, powerfully illuminated by a world-class writer.In his new chapters: 'If It's Not Happening, It's Because You're Not Doing It' and 'What Happens When We All Have Dog's Hearing?' the author explores both the benefits and disadvantages of the very latest developments in global communication. The emergent popularity of blogging, pod-casting, YouTube and MySpace enable the modern world citizen to broadcast their views to a potential audience of billions, and the proliferation of Internet access to even the poorest communities gives everyone who wants to the tools to address issues of social injustice and inequality. On the other hand the technology that seems to improve communication on a global scale causes it to deteriorate on a local scale. Identifying ours as 'The Age of Interruption', Friedman discusses the annoyance and dangers of BlackBerrys in meeting rooms, hands-free kits in conversation and using a phone or iPod whilst driving. In an age when we are always 'connected' via email or mobile phone how can we hope to concentrate on one thing without interruption? As expected the author has revitalised this new edition of The World Is Flat with timely insights into the nature of our flat world.

    Tis: A Memoir, Frank McCourt

    A #1 New York Times bestseller and the eagerly anticipated sequel to the Pulitzer Prize–winning Angela’s Ashes, this masterpiece from Frank McCourt tells of his American journey from impoverished immigrant to brilliant teacher and raconteur.Frank McCourt’s glorious childhood memoir, Angela’s Ashes, has been loved and celebrated by readers everywhere for its spirit, its wit and its profound humanity. A tale of redemption, in which storytelling itself is the source of salvation, it won the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Los Angeles Times Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize. Rarely has a book so swiftly found its place on the literary landscape.And now we have ’Tis, the story of Frank’s American journey from impoverished immigrant to brilliant teacher and raconteur. Frank lands in New York at age nineteen, in the company of a priest he meets on the boat. He gets a job at the Biltmore Hotel, where he immediately encounters the vivid hierarchies of this “classless country,” and then is drafted into the army and is sent to Germany to train dogs and type reports. It is Frank’s incomparable voice—his uncanny humor and his astonishing ear for dialogue—that renders these experiences spellbinding.When Frank returns to America in 1953, he works on the docks, always resisting what everyone tells him, that men and women who have dreamed and toiled for years to get to America should “stick to their own kind” once they arrive. Somehow, Frank knows that he should be getting an education, and though he left school at fourteen, he talks his way into New York University. There, he falls in love with the quintessential Yankee, long-legged and blonde, and tries to live his dream. But it is not until he starts to teach—and to write—that Frank finds his place in the world. The same vulnerable but invincible spirit that captured the hearts of readers in Angela’s Ashes comes of age.As Malcolm Jones said in his Newsweek review of Angela’s Ashes, “It is only the best storyteller who can so beguile his readers that he leaves them wanting more when he is done...and McCourt proves himself one of the very best.” Frank McCourt's ’Tis is one of the most eagerly awaited books of our time, and it is a masterpiece.
