Summary

From a Yorkshire veterinarian and a “wise and wonderful writer”: The New York Times bestseller and basis for the beloved BBC series of the same name (The Boston Globe).  In the rolling dales of Yorkshire, a simple, rural region of northern England, a young veterinarian from Sunderland joins a new practice. A stranger in a strange land, he must quickly learn the odd dialect and humorous ways of the locals, master outdated equipment, and do his best to mend, treat, and heal pets and livestock alike. This witty and heartwarming collection, based on the author’s own experiences, became an international success, spawning sequels and winning over animal lovers everywhere. Perhaps better than any other writer, James Herriot reveals the ties that bind us to the creatures in our lives.

    Something has gone wrong. We're living in an age of celebratory racism, extreme inequality, uncertainty and fear. We're governed by people who claim to be populist but who seem to hate everyone. There are idiots at the wheel and we're heading for a cliff in a big red bus and no one knows how to save us. 
    Enemies of The People reveals who has taken us to this dizzying precipice. It provides the actual, non-alternative facts about Donald Trump, Nigel Farage, Vladimir Putin and their charming friends – and also explains where they got their crazy ideas. Why did people turn so mean? How did so-called social networks like Facebook become so very anti-social? Why did anyone think it would be a good idea to privatise railways? Just how much should we fear the robots? Why is no one doing anything about Global Warming? Why is no one doing anything about Boris Johnson either? 
    This book explains all those vital questions and more. 
    Remember, though – they say history is written by the victors and fortunately, many of those currently winning can’t seem to write more than 140 characters at a time. This gives us the golden opportunity to set the record straight and snatch back the narrative. But if we’ve any chance of victory, we first need to know our enemy. 
    In Enemies of The People, Sam Jordison paints a vivid picture of the current political landscape, marked by corruption, misconduct, and a culture of fear. He delves into the biographies of famous figures, revealing their popular yet questionable ideologies.

    An aggressive dog, whether large of small, baring its teeth and growling can be a terrifying sight. Dogs, like children, require boundaries and training in order for them to grow into sociable, well-mannered adults with a healthy respect for their fellow beings. Barbara Sykes explains how to recognise and understand the causes of hostility in dogs, and how to move forward in a calm and sympathetic way in order to gain a dog's respect and friendship. The author is an experienced dog trainer and her common-sense approach to behavioural problems in dogs is successfully proven in this book by the rehabilitation of Craig.
