Sod Calm and Get Angry: resigned advice for hard times
During the current recession it seems our traditional stiff upper lip can only last so long before those other world-beating British skills come to the fore - quiet grumbling and resigned cynicism. Sod Calm and Get Angry is for anyone who has finally had enough of bankers and politicians and bosses telling them to keep sodding calm and to carry bloody on. Sod Calm and Get Angry is both a rallying call and an essential tome of comforting wisdom and quotes for the depressed, enraged, disgruntled, disenfranchised and those of a naturally curmudgeonly disposition. On Politics The word 'politics' is derived from the word 'poly', meaning 'many', and the word 'ticks', meaning 'blood sucking parasites' - Larry Hardiman On Work One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important - Bertrand Russell On Money The easiest way for your children to learn about money is for you not to have any - Katherine Whitehorn On Hypocrisy Hypocrite: the man who murdered both his parents... pleaded for mercy on the grounds that he was an orphan - Abraham Lincoln On War You can't say civilisation don't advance... for in every war they kill you a new way - Will Rogers On Life That's the secret to life... replace one worry with another - Charles M Schulz

But on paper the real Jeremy remains at the helm. So, whether he's pondering: If Jesus might have been better off being born in New Zealand Why reflexive pronoun abuse is the worst thing in the world How Pam Ayres's head trumps Gordon Gecko's underpants Or what a television presenter with time on his hands gets up to Jeremy is still trying to make sense of the big stuff.

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER From the creator of the wildly popular xkcd.com, hilarious and informative answers to important questions you probably never thought to ask. Millions visit xkcd.com each week to read Randall Munroe's iconic webcomic. Fans ask him a lot of strange questions: How fast can you hit a speed bump, driving, and live? When (if ever) did the sun go down on the British Empire? When will Facebook contain more profiles of dead people than living? How many humans would a T Rex rampaging through New York need to eat a day? In pursuit of answers, Munroe runs computer simulations, pores over stacks of declassified military research memos, solves differential equations and consults nuclear reactor operators. His responses are masterpieces of clarity and hilarity, complemented by comics. They often predict the complete annihilation of humankind, or at least a really big explosion.

Anxiety is a wild ride. Often, there seems to be an assumption that if you're mentally ill, you just sit around and cry all the time. There is a certain amount of that, true, but there's also much more to it. Chuck Mullin has won fans with these funny, quirky pigeons that illustrate how mental health affects her everyday life. From Bad Times to Positivity, the comics use humour to provide a glimpse of what's going on in Chuck's head: dissociative episodes; cycles of anxiety; her struggle to accept she's not alone; and the power of optimism on the days it's possible.

The Comedy Bible: From Stand-up to Sitcom - The Comedy Writers Ultimate Guide
Judy Carter, guru to aspiring comedy writers and stand-up comics, tells all about the biz of being funny and writing funny in this bright, entertaining, and totally practical guide on how to draw humor from your life and turn it into a career. Do you think you're funny? Do you want to turn your sense of humor into a career? If the answer is yes, then Judy Carter's The Comedy Bible is for you. The guru to aspiring stand-up comics provides the complete scoop on being--and writing--funny for money. If you've got a sense of humor, you can learn to make a career out of comedy, says Judy Carter. Whether it's creating a killer stand-up act, writing a spec sitcom, or providing jokes for radio or one-liners for greeting cards, Carter provides step-by-step instructions in The Comedy Bible. She helps readers first determine which genre of comedy writing or performing suits them best and then directs them in developing, refining, and selling their work. Using the hands-on workbook format that was so effective in her bestselling first book, Stand-Up Comedy: The Book, Carter offers a series of day-by-day exercises that draw on her many years as a successful stand-up comic and the head of a nationally known comedy school. Also included are practical tips and advice from today's top comedy professionals--from Bernie Brillstein to Christopher Titus to Richard Lewis. She presents the pros and cons of the various comedy fields--stand-up, script, speech and joke writing, one-person shows, humor essays--and shows how to tailor your material for each. She teaches how to find your authentic voice--the true source of comedy. And, perhaps most important, Carter explains how to take a finished product to the next level--making money--by pitching it to a buyer and negotiating a contract. Written in Carter's unique, take-no-prisoners voice, The Comedy Bible is practical, inspirational, and funny.

In Real Life: My Journey to a Pixelated World
A confessional, uplifting memoir from the beloved YouTube personality. Twenty-three year old Joey Graceffa has captured the hearts of millions of teens and young adults through his playful, sweet, and inspirational YouTube presence (not to mention his sparkling eyes and perfect hair). Yet, Joey wasn't always comfortable in his skin, and in this candid memoir, he thoughtfully looks back on his journey from pain to pride, self-doubt to self-acceptance. To his fans, Joey is that best friend who always captures the brighter side of life but also isn't afraid to get real. In the pages of his first book, he opens up about his years of struggling with family hardships and troubles at school, with cruel bullying and the sting of rejection. He tells of first loves and losses, embarrassing moments and surprising discoveries, loneliness, laughter, and life-changing forks in the road, showing us the incalculable value of finally finding and following your true passion in this world. Funny, warm-hearted, and inspiring, Joey Graceffa's story is a welcome reminder that it's not where you begin that matters, but where you end up.
