Stephen knew that something bad had happened. After all, he'd been there, hadn't he, he'd been a part of it. But how bad it was he could never be sure. Everything seemed to conspire against his knowing. A decade later, as a young man, an unexpected opportunity to discover the truth presents itself. Only, is it the truth he wants to discover? This speculative adventure threads its way dramatically across three episodes of twentieth century cultural upheaval, through the struggle and aftermath of the first and second world wars to the social revolution of the 1960s.

You may prefer your lie in life through commitment, motivation, positive visualisation, self-belief. You can simply consider it ... The world is a given, but we live in it through metaphors, images and games – 'lies' if you will.

A book about golf that will appeal to both players and non players, by Scottish poet and novelist. Surely golf is a game for posh people, country clubs and networking businessmen, for unfortunate sweaters, politics and trousers? Andrew Greig grew up on the East coast of Scotland, where playing golf is as natural as breathing. He sees the game as the great leveller, and has played on the Old course at St Andrews as well as on the miners' courses of Yorkshire. He writes about the different cultural manifestations of the game, the history, the geography, the different social meanings, as well as the subjective experience, the reflections between shots. He plays alone, with friends and brothers, with ghosts. He is looking for the essence of golf, the pure heart of it, which can be found, Andrew Greig believes, on the free 9 hole course on North Ronaldsay.

Following seven years of consultations, on 1st January 2019 the governing bodies of the Rules of golf will implement the most comprehensive Rules changes seen in the game for 37 years. In a bid to make the Rules more accessible and straightforward The R&A and USGA have reworded every Rule and made alterations that will affect the way every golfer in the world plays the game - some 60 million people. The Rules will be reduced from 34 to 24 and some of the changes will create ripples throughout the world of sport. They include: Reduction of 'ball moved' penalties. Relaxed putting green rules. Relaxed bunker rules. A bigger reliance on a player's 'reasonable judgment'. Reduced search times. The abandonment of the 'furthest from the hole plays first' etiquette in favour of 'ready golf'. Relaxed procedure for dropping the ball. The book will also include modified rules for players with disabilities and guidelines for committees. This is the Rules book that every serious golfer will need.

Yet it is equally true that there are some things every golfer must know before setting foot on the course, lest he risk making an utter ass of himself.

This humble little volume gathers together a collection of the wisest counsel and advice on the Noble Sport in all its forms. Whether you are making up a friendly foursome with your choicest cronies or entering into a vicious fight for this year’s club cup, G.O.L.F. will ensure you come off with top honours even when the odds are against you.

Finding that the one-size-fits-all schooling doesn't, Billy Hunt takes his square peg and tries to fit into the round hole that is a multinational oil corporation apprenticeship. Quickly learning that his fellow workers are oblong, oval, triangular and every other shape of peg except round, Billy starts his course of 'bull' at the University of Weird People. After a serious fire, and a short course in enterprise-which on one hand lands him in prison and on the other in a good job, he philanders his way through a 24-hour marriage of convenience, to land in The Falklands. Here he takes the overseas course in coping with mis-shapen, missile-firing ex-pats and inbred native sheep fanciers. Returning to Scotland after doing to The Falklands what the Argies couldn't, he joins the self-important misfits in the insignificant path of life through the eons of time. This book is a hoot, and even more so when you know it is semi-autobiographical.
