For sitters and thinkers........
‘There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke’. You might recognise that as a quote from Bob Dylan’s All Along The Watchtower, but who said ‘The role of a mother is to deliver children obstetrically once and by car forever after’ or ‘Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit’?*
You might find answers to those in a dictionary of quotations, but what if somebody asked you over dinner about some of the most famous books in history, which you just never got around to reading ... Paradise Lost, Lord of the Flies, To Kill a Mockingbird, Macbeth or even 1984? Would you admit total ignorance or would you try to bluff your way through?
Now you don’t have to do either. A must-have book called Passing Time In The Loo gives you all this information and plenty more besides. As well as including two-page summaries of these works and more than 115 others, it has brief biographies of religious and political leaders, scientists, healers, artists and explorers. There is also a Word Power section designed to expand anybody’s vocabulary and many witty and wise anecdotes that will amuse and educate at the same time.
Designed so the reader can dip in and out at whim, picking up easily-absorbed snippets of information without ever feeling bogged down with too much data, Passing Time In The Loo [of course, it can be read anywhere-not only in the loo] also includes sections on health and fitness, personal effectiveness and even foreign words and phrases.
The only question is- 'Will you have time to read it ALL in the loo?'
(*:Peter de Vries and Peter Ustinov).Synopsis:
