‘Hey, are you bored with your dull and monotonous life? Do you waste all your spare time reading dull books like Shakespeare and Charles Dickens? Is your life too tame and domesticated? Do you want to inject some excitement and exuberance into it? Do you want to improve your lung power and be able to yell and shriek at hundred decibels for hours and hours? Do you want to get lots of friends of all ages, religions and races who think and act alike? Do you want to extract the maximum out of your gigantic high definition TV? Do you want to be at the edge of your living room couch shivering in nail biting suspense and anticipation? Do you…’ ‘Yes! Yes! Quick, tell me what I need to do.’ ‘Simple. Just become a real cricket fan and you will achieve all that I just said.’ ‘What? Don’t be silly! How will that help? I am already a cricket fan in case you didn’t know.’ ‘Hah! Are you? Don’t make me laugh! You are like a lamb, an insult to all real cricket fans.’‘ Hey, what do you mean by insult to all fans?’ ‘Cool down! What I mean is you look and act too domesticated to be called a real cricket fan. You are still not that fire and brimstone material of cricket – The Ultimate Cricket Fan.’ ‘Ultimate cricket fan? Who is that?’ ‘An explosive beast that no one can tame.’

Cricket is a strange game. It is a team sport that is almost entirely dependent on individual performance. Its combination of time, opportunity and the constant threat of disaster can drive its participants to despair. To survive a single delivery propelled at almost 100 miles an hour takes the body and brain to the edges of their capabilities, yet its abiding image is of the gentle village green, and the glorious absurdities of the amateur game. In The Meaning of Cricket, Jon Hotten attempts to understand this fascinating, frustrating and complex sport. Blending legendary players, from Vivian Richards to Mark Ramprakash, Kevin Pietersen to Ricky Ponting, with his own cricketing story, he explores the funny, moving and melancholic impact the game can have on an individual life.

Diary of a Dimwit is an omnibus of sharp satire, outlandish observations, and awful advice on politics, advertising, sports, spirituality, research, modern art, stock market, etc. This book is about imagining the creative and wackier side of such professions to rejuvenate and brighten your day. The chapters are all fictitious and can be taken with a pinch of salt, though the paper used may not be edible. The author makes no representations or warranties of any kind with respect to the accuracy, usability, or usefulness of the contents.Many people think that humor and laughter are unproductive, unprofessional, and being serious is the only way to spend their personal and professional life. This is why most homes and workplaces have now become humorless, artificial, and stressful. But we don’t have to be humorless to run our lives. Having a sense of humor can lighten up difficult situations and creatively solve many personal and business problems. You must be able to think in atrocious, ridiculous, and illogical terms. Modern management consultants call this “thinking out of the box” but I call it old fashioned creativity and humor that has existed for decades from Mark Twain to Mad Magazine.

They're the moments that make up Australian sporting folklore, the iconic events that stand out in Australia's collective sporting memory long after the match details have become a blur. Remember Shane Warne's ball of the century? Or Steve Waugh's century off the last ball? Where were you when John Dyson took his outfield catch? Or Ellyse Perry celebrated an Ashes double century - twice? How about Adam Gilchrist walking in a World Cup semi-final? Or Dennis Lillee kicking Javed Miandad? Steve Harmison's wide? Peter Siddle's birthday hat trick? Underarm?

The story of Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev and his brain child “Periodic Table of Chemical Elements”, with all its impact and influences, would fit better within the walls of a library than between the covers of a single book of nearly 100 pages. The present book “A Brief History of the Periodic Table” would attract experts and curious laymen alike due to its lively style of narration. The book contains eight chapters.
