Jason Frasier grew up in the East End and was always told to look out for his younger brother. He did this willingly and could never see in Vincent what others could see, that he was a thoroughly nasty piece of work. The two boys were so very different, Vincent had a jealous streak and what he wanted he usually got. Jason on the other hand was kind and loving and gave in to his brothers demands. Vincent had a knack of dragging his brother into all manner of dodgy schemes, which is how they ended up on the wrong side of Freddie Gant, the notorious local gangster and how one of the brothers would pay the ultimate price. East End Honour takes the reader into a world that they would not normally venture and chronicles the lives of a family that are to be torn apart by a chance decision that one of the brothers would regret for the rest of his life.

Enter the Republican Speaker of the House who becomes the third president in than a day as the reins of power shift to the GOP. The election must be postponed while the Democrats select a new ticket.
Sensing weakness in the caretaker US government, Iran threatens that sanctions must be revoked within days or they will launch an attack in the Persian Gulf to shut down the supply of oil.
The world nervously awaits the outcome.

The author of this book offers an interesting guide to the familiar concept of happiness. Aware that many self-help books are merely the opinions of the respective author, this book, The Science of Happiness, strives to provide the solid factual data where other guides on happiness fail. The author claims to have read hundreds of psychology studies on happiness and has incorporated data from more than 50 of these studies in this easy-to-read text based on psychology research.

This includes examining how emotions such as anger and sadness can be detrimental to our health—or at least affect us temporarily in negative ways. The second part of this guide will offer suggestions for a happier life and debunk many of the more common yet stubborn myths, such as those surrounding social media influence and fake smiles. The third section of this self-help resource will hopefully provide the key to sustainable happiness. Readers who adopt the suggested practices contained herein will not only boost their positive emotions but also greatly improve their overall well-being. For those willing to keep an open mind, study the material, and master the techniques described in its pages, The Science of Happiness could very well be an insightful journey offering a new perspective on life and well-being.
These two works on life's fleeting pleasures are by Buddhist monks from medieval Japan, but each shows a different world-view. In the short memoir Hojoki, Chomei recounts his decision to withdraw from worldly affairs and live as a hermit in a tiny hut in the mountains, contemplating the impermanence of human existence. Kenko, however, displays a fascination with more earthy matters in his collection of anecdotes, advice and observations. From ribald stories of drunken monks to aching nostalgia for the fading traditions of the Japanese court, Essays in Idleness is a constantly surprising work that ranges across the spectrum of human experience. Meredith McKinney's excellent new translation also includes notes and an introduction exploring the spiritual and historical background of the works. Chomei was born into a family of Shinto priests in around 1155, at at time when the stable world of the court was rapidly breaking up. He became an important though minor poet of his day, and at the age of fifty, withdrew from the world to become a tonsured monk. He died in around 1216. Kenko was born around 1283 in Kyoto.He probably became a monk in his late twenties, and was also noted as a calligrapher. Today he is remembered for his wise and witty aphorisms, 'Essays in Idleness'. Meredith McKinney, who has also translated Sei Shonagon's The Pillow Book for Penguin Classics, is a translator of both contemporary and classical Japanese literature. She lived in Japan for twenty years and is currently a visitng fellow at the Australian National University in Canberra. "[Essays in Idleness is] a most delightful book, and one that has served as a model of Japanese style and taste since the 17th century. These cameo-like vignettes reflect the importance of the little, fleeting futile things, and each essay is Kenko himself".
Murder's Bold Inscription "Whoever had broken into the shop might just have gone upstairs afterwards, might just be there still...My first reaction was anger: I wanted to roar up the stairs, only I could hear Barnabas saying, the way he used to when I was little: "Temper, Dido! Count to twenty-nine..." Selling rare books has its moments, but few are anything close to thrilling--except when Dido Hoare's scoundrel of an ex-husband suddenly reappears and puts a pulse of excitement in the air.But events go from interesting to intense when someone ends up murdered and the culprit seems to think Dido has something worth killing for, too. With the help of her father, Barnabas, a retired academic with a penchant for mysteries, Dido may be able to divert the killer long enough to figure out who wants her dead and why.
Recovering from a heart attack, the irrepressible Barnabas is taking chances that are likely to give Dido a coronary of her own, and give the police a bad case of indigestion. But as Dido and Barnabas are about to learn, every crime has its victims and its payoffs--it's just a matter of being on the right side of the bookshelf before everything comes tumbling down.
