Jargon, clichés, euphemisms . . . lies. Ever wished there was a phrasebook to help you translate all this endless bullsh*t? When your boss asks 'Can I have a quick word?'

And if you need a way to spin your latest work disaster, here are numerous tried-and-tested porkies to help you out.

'This is beyond my remit' - I can't be arsed to deal with this 'Team player' - Has basic social skills, is not an outright sociopath 'Let's park this for now' - Let's never mention this again 'We wish her all the best in her new job' - Burn in hell, traitor

An Edwardian seaside town is labeled the drug capital of north Norfolk, and an unlikely group of people find their lives inextricably linked to it—and each other. They are the following: Deeanna, the beautiful young wife of an MEP. She is desperately trying to save her family’s country estate following her father’s death and the discovery that they are broke. An opportunity to make quick money is just too tempting—and she has never been afraid to live life on the edge. Deeanna’s brother, Jonathan, always wants to emulate his sister. He takes over the running of the estate when the decision is made to open it to the public. His partnership in a flying school in Holland leads him to become an unwitting courier, with dire consequences. The mysterious Peter, who takes a job as security man to Deeanna’s husband, Nigel. But that is just a cover while he works for a drug enforcement agency. His dilemma is what to do about the stunningly beautiful Deeanna once he discovers that she is a main player. Crab fisherman, Whitebait, Highly respected in a tight-knit community, he worries that his pension will not be enough to give his wife, Mary, the rewards she deserves after all the years of hard work. During his last seasons at sea with his brother, Larry, they bring ashore more than crabs and lobsters. But Larry is weak and careless. He is tempted to try the drugs himself. The owners of a Dutch cargo vessel. Struggling to stay in business against increasingly difficult competition, they are also lured into temptation to pay off the crippling cost of their boat. Marti is a mixed-up young car salesman. His one ambition in life is to bring to justice the foster father who abused him as a child. He becomes a courier and quite by chance meets up with Terry, one of the other boys from the foster home. Terry, already an addict, introduces Marti to his boss. Joe Smith—that is probably not his birth name—is obese, suffers from angina and is no longer a main player in the Amsterdam drug world. He has been hard and ruthless over the years to maintain his slice of the business, but now he is losing out to the big, dangerous international syndicates. His sidekick, Roberto, is a suave Italian, and Deeanna likes what she sees. But he is plotting to desert Joe and move to the opposition where he believes a bigger pot of gold is waiting. Lured by the promise of quick financial gains for their own particular needs or greed, they all become entangled in a dark and dangerous network. Their lives are changed forever—as they opt for A QUICK FIX.

The relationship between sleep and storytelling is an ancient one. For centuries, sleep has provided writers with a magical ingredient – a passage of time during which great changes miraculously occur, an Orpheus-like voyage through the subconscious daubed with the fantastic. But over the last ten years, our scientific understanding of sleep has been revolutionised. No longer is sleep viewed as a time of simple rest and recuperation. Instead, it is proving to be an intensely dynamic period of brain activity: a vital stage in the re-wiring of memories, the learning of new skills, and the processing of problems and emotions. How will storytelling respond to this new and emerging science of sleep? Here, 14 authors have been invited to work with key scientists to explore various aspects of sleep research: from the possibilities of ‘sleep engineering’ and ‘overnight therapies’, to future-tech ways of harnessing sleep’s problem-solving powers, to the challenges posed by our increasingly 24-hour lifestyles. Just as new hypotheses are being put forward, old hunches are also being confirmed (there’s now a scientific basis for the time-worn advice ‘to sleep on a problem’). As these responses show, sleep and the spinning of stories are still very much entwined. Featuring scientific contributions from: Prof Russell G. Foster, Isabel Hutchison, Dr. Simon Kyle, Dr. Penny Lewis, Dr. Paul Reading, Stephanie Romiszewski, Prof Robert Stickgold, Prof Manuel Schabus, Prof Ed Watkins, Prof Adam Zeman, Dr. Thomas Wehr. This project was supported by the Wellcome Trust.

Neil Deane has been happily (and unhappily) immersing himself in German culture since moving to Germany from Liverpool, GB at the end of the seventies; this book reveals the conclusions emerging from his observations since then. Starting with an all-important historical overview since "Zero hour" (May 8, 1945), he moves on to describe everyday life and challenges, analyses the German way of thinking and attempts to explain the success story of Europe's most powerful economic power. A chapter on the progress of East-West unity since 1990 and a comprehensive state of the nation statement bring the reader right up to date with the crucial issues facing Germany at the start of the 21st century. Autobiographical, entertaining and non-academic in nature, yet based on facts, current writing and balanced judgement, the book paints a personal and honest picture of Germany today, providing useful help and insights for anybody intending to spend time there on business or pleasure. Anybody wishing to understand modern Germany - and that includes Germans themselves - will find much to ponder on.
