Wonderful BBC series
Mclevy the Collected Editions: Series 5 ... Mclevy the Collected Editions: Series 5 & 6 - David Ashton,Brian Cox,Full Cast,Siobhan Redmond

I love this series based on the life of McLevy, a Scottish policeman in Edinburgh.  Mostly because Jean Brash, who is freaking awesome.  If you haven't listened to this wonderful series, give it a go.  Nice humor, good characters, and Scotland.

CAST TWO SHADOWS: THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION IN THE SOUTH by Ann Rinaldi
Cast Two Shadows: The American Revolution in the South - Ann Rinaldi

Cast Two Shadows: The American Revolution in the South

Ann Rinaldi

Paperback, 304 pages
Published March 1st 2004 by HMH Books for Young Readers (first published October 1st 1998)
ISBN: 0152050779 (ISBN13: 9780152050771) 

 

I was browsing the shelves when I found this book. Usually, an author sticks with the big events of the American Revolution, but Rinaldi sets this book in the south.  Caroline, the main character, is 14 years old and sees how the war has separated her family's loyalty, as well as how it has affected her friends. The British have taken over her family's plantation; her father is thrown in jail for supporting the patriots; the brother is fighting for the British. She sees some horrors on both sides and learns some secrets about herself as well. At some points, the reading is a little dry. Overall, a good book, though, YA readers who like historical fiction.

Hippocrates 2.0 or On How to Put People into Boxes:"The Right—and Wrong—Stuff - How Brilliant Careers Are Made and Unmade" by Caster Cast
The Right—and Wrong—Stuff: How Brilliant Careers Are Made and Unmade - Carter Cast

http://cartercast.com/book/

 

Presumably there are four types of persons in the world. To wit:

 

Those who believe there are four types;

Those who believe there are fewer than four types;

Those who believe there are more than four types;

Those who think the whole idea is cobblers;

Those who don't care (like me).

 

* Note for pedants.

The list has five elements. This is known as a "joke". I have left you some grammar errors as well to give you something useless to do.

 

** Note for mathematicians.

We could usefully consider the fifth element as a description of the null set in this context. Feel free to discuss whether the presence of a null set invalidates the claim that dividing a set into four subsets covers all parts of the original set.

 

Seriously. Really. Strikes me as unlikely that we fit into five professional "categories": Captain Fantastic, the Solo Flyer, Version 1.0, the One-Trick Pony, and the Whirling Dervish (I like the names though). Is there here something really new? Nah, Cast nicked the idea off Hippocrates. This has been around since ancient times when the four types were choleric, melancholic, phlegmatic and sanguine. Truly there is nothing new under the sun. Speaking for myself I was never one to believe we could be pigeonholed. Aye right, “there is no one-size-fits-all solution" - but four (or five according to Cast) sizes? Yep, that just about covers the entire human population.

 

 

If you're into self-help books of the Managerial Type, read on.
