Evening Standard's the Best Comedy Books of the Year Skinny's Book of the Year What better way to understand ourselves than through the eyes of comedians - those who professionally examine our quirks on stage daily? Reviews for I'm a Joke and So Are You: 'Joyfully entertaining.' - Observer 'Funny, honest and heart-warming.' -Matt Haig 'a smart, laugh-out-loud book.' - Evening Standard 'Deceptively deep. Invaluable and inspiring.' - Stewart Lee In this touching and witty book, award-winning presenter and comic Robin Ince uses the life of the stand-up as a way of exploring some of the biggest questions we all face: Where does anxiety come from? How do we overcome imposter syndrome? What is the key to creativity? How can we deal with grief? Informed by personal insights from Robin as well as interviews with some of the world's top comedians, neuroscientists and psychologists, this is a hilarious and often moving primer to the mind. But it is also a powerful call to embrace the full breadth of our inner experience - no matter how strange we worry it may be!
As in Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time, math and science inform this mind-bending mystery about a girl who must work with the laws of the universe and trust the love of her family if she is to set her world right. It's the morning of Maisie's tenth birthday, and she can't wait to open her presents. Maisie is not a typical kid. What she wants most for her birthday are the things she needs to build her own nuclear reactor. But she wakes to an empty house, and outside the front door is nothing but an unsettling, all-consuming blackness--a shifted reality. Even for super-smart Maisie, these puzzling circumstances seem out of her control . . . or are they? A CLIP Carnegie Medal Children's Book Award Nominee "A heartbreaking, head-melting science fiction mystery from the superlative Christopher Edge."--The Guardian "[Edge] . . . has a magical way of distilling difficult concepts [like] relativity, gravity, time and space, infinity. . . .He weaves these ideas into a high-energy thriller."--The Times (UK) "Gripping, terrifying and eye-poppingly original. Grabs hold of your brain--then tugs at your heart." --Jonathan Stroud, author of the bestselling Bartimaeus Trilogy
Critical humorists and religion are steeped in a long-standing cultural antagonism. This book recounts the dramatic skirmishes between religion—its dogma and edicts, political manifestations, and the nature of faith—and the satire, parody, jokes and hyperbole of popular wits. The writings of Twain, Vonnegut, Mencken and Hitchens are included, along with the films of Monty Python, the cartoons of Charlie Hebdo, the animated television series The Simpsons and South Park, the comedy of George Carlin and Bill Maher, the music of Randy Newman and Pussy Riot, the performance monologue of Julia Sweeney and the magic of Penn Jillette.
Whether we want to improve education or cut crime, to enhance public health or to generate clean energy, we need the experimental methods of science - the best tool humanity has yet developed for working out what works. Yet from the way we're governed to the news we're fed by the media we're let down by a lack of understanding and respect for its insights and evidence. In The Geek Manifesto Mark Henderson explains why and how we need to entrench scientific thinking more deeply into every aspect of our society. A new movement is gathering. Let's turn it into a force our leaders cannot ignore. This edition includes an appendix: 'A Geek Manifesto for America' by David Dobbs.
