    Struggling to solve your dog’s behavioural problems? Looking to achieve the perfect relationship with your dog? 
     
    Traditional methods to overcome a dog’s undesirable behaviour typically involve tiring out, distracting, controlling or bribing, without identifying the root cause of the problem. We wouldn't do this with children, yet it has become common practice with dogs. 
     
    Dog behaviourist, Nigel Reed has found there are 4 fundamental components for a happy and well-behaved dog: a deep understanding of your dog’s needs, language,emotional state, and being an effective leader. This book explains the philosophy and gives you practical, step-by-step advice. 
     
    This new and vital information will empower you to address any of your dog's undesirable behaviours, no matter its age, breed or history. It will ensure your dog trusts your decisions and follows you of its own free will.

    'Damn, all my cheating secrets revealed. In book form' Stephen Fry
    
    Which philosopher had the maddest hairstyle? Which novelist drank 50 cups of black coffee every day? What on earth did Simone de Beauvoir see in Jean-Paul Sartre? 
    
    How to Sound Cultured offers a wry and yet profoundly useful look inside the mirrored palaces of high culture. Covering such inscrutable characters as Heidegger, Montaigne, Kahlo and Lévi-Strauss (apparently not just a designer of jeans), inscrutable polymaths Thomas W. Hodgkinson and Hubert van den Bergh – the author of the acclaimed How to Sound Clever – have done the hard work of sorting the cultural wheat from the chaff. 
    
    Read this book and you’ll never again mistake Rimbaud for Rambo or Georg Lukacs for George Lucas, you’ll know precisely when to drop Foucault’s name into a conversation and how to pronounce ‘Borgesian’, and you’ll learn many more essential pointers for the intellectual life.

    Kindhearted and loudmouthed Mrs. Feeley, Mrs. Rasmussen, and Miss Tinkham have only just set out on their long-awaited cross-country drive to the West Coast when the trouble begins. It’s bad enough that they wind up in a seedy, truck stop nightclub, but then it’s raided by the police! Thankfully, Chief Connolly can tell they’re decent folks and lets them off easy, but he needs a favor in return. He wants them to take a passenger on their trip; a dangerous passenger they’ll need to outwit before making it home.   Mary Lasswell is firing on all cylinders again in this madcap, slapstick, high-spirited adventure—the fourth to star Mrs. Feeley and friends.
