Scott Schuman, the blogger of now famous fashion blog thesartorialist.com, has come up with a satisfying print version - a 512-page picture book which collects his favourite photos from the past four years.
"Eat, Pray, Love" is the insightful and humorous travelogue of now renowned writer Elizabeth Gilbert, who is also the author of nonfiction bestseller 'The Last American Man'. In her latest and safely said to be most popular book to date with the book published over twenty languages and a movie adaptation starring Julia Roberts coming up, she chronicles her journey of self-discovery and healing across Italy, India and Indonesia with frank witty accounts of emotions and events.
They say laughter is the best medicine. This book is just that with its deadpan hum our and the exact thoughts you were thinking every morning such as How to...wake up. Guy Browning put together his collection from his Guardian columns to compile this excellent easy read of Never Hit a Jellyfish with a Spade.
Paul Arden, the author of “Whatever You Think, Think The Opposite”, and “It’s Not How Good You Are, It’s How Good You Want To Be” was a former creative director for Saatchi and Saatchi.
Whatever You Think, Think The Opposite is one of those books, that’s a good toilet read. That’s where we get the most ingenious ideas anyway. The book features short bursts of ideas and is witty from cover to cover, and for people who don’t particularly like words, it’s filled with thought provoking photographs and illustrations to boot.
The advice in the book goes against almost everything we’re taught. Don’t go to university. It’s not always good to have ideas. Steal.
My opinion, excellent advice for the creative mind. Arden goes has a twist to everything in this book, he is basically trying to say, think creatively. The book’s a good read when you’re in dire need of inspiration and a random smirk to perk you up on the way to work.

Aravind Adiga's debut novel, "The White Tiger", is a story of self-made, successful entrepreneur, Balram Halwai, and his many other identities set in the background of India's developing technology industry. He is an exemplar of darkness emerging into the light; the poor triumphing in life by the sweat of his brow and some street-wise intelligence.
