  • Presenting, for the first time ever, the whole truth about Indian advertising and nothing but the truth (with just a pinch of salt).

    For centuries, Indians have been asking all kinds of questions  about the meaning of life, our place in the cosmos, why we have so many gods, and other such vital things. In the last hundred-odd years, marketing and advertising has given us none of those answers. What it has given us, nonetheless, is life-altering stuff. It has attempted to make men Fair and Handsome. It has battled to make women 18 Again. And to both men and women it has given Tinder loving care.

    It has made us realize that we like pizza as much as the next Italian  as long as Dominos puts keema dopyaaza on it and tempts us with, ‘Hungry kya?’

    It has made us re-evaluate our life choices and ask thought-provoking questions like ‘Kitna deti hai?’ of our cars and ‘Kya aap Close-Up karte hain?’ of our toothpaste. In short, it has enriched our lives with quirky quips and clever (at times outrageous) turns of phrase, unforgettable mascots,
    all-out Battles of the Brands, eye-popping insights and lump-in-the-throat moments, while feeding our addiction to controversies and virtual worlds.

    In this must-read book, you’ll find unbusiness-like stories from Indian advertising through the ages – and everything you didn’t want to know about the hits, the misses, the also-rans and the banned.

  • No playwright apart from Shakespeare is as widely quoted and Oscar Wilde’s needle-sharp rejoinders are often repeated with delight. However, his jibes were rarely cruel, and displayed a profound understanding of the human character and its vanities.

    Includes such notable quotes as:

    ‘Work is the curse of the drinking classes.’

    ‘All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That’s his.’ The Importance of Being Earnest

    ‘We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.’ Lady Windermere’s Fan

    With a timeline of his life and quotations divided by themes, this book demonstrates why, more than a hundred years after his death, people are still drawn to Wilde’s dazzling repartee and the wicked brilliance of his social observations.

  • As seen on The Daily Show, an illustrated portrait of the Donald J. Trump Twitter account, with analysis and ‘scholarly’ commentary from the writers of The Daily Show and an introduction by Trevor Noah.

    In June 2017, just steps from Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah opened The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library, a 4,000-square-foot museum space that gave the 45th president and his amazing Twitter legacy the respect they deserve. In the single weekend it was open to the public, the Library pop-up drew 7,500 visitors and had to turn away countless others.

    But the Presidential Twitter Library experience should not be limited to the elite coastal few. Not fair! All citizens, even the Mexican ones, should have the chance to see Donald Trump’s tweets in their rightful context – organized and commented on in the fearless, hilarious, insightful voice of The Daily Show .

    This one-of-a-kind exhibition catalogue presents the Library’s complete contents, including:

    The Masterpieces: In-depth critical appreciations of history’s most important Trump tweets, from ‘Very Stable Genius’ to ‘Covfefe’ to ‘Trump Tower Taco Bowl/I Love Hispanics!’
    The Greatest Battles: @realDonaldTrump’s brutal Twitter campaigns against fellow Republicans, Diet Coke, women generally, and Kristen Stewart specifically
    Sad! A Retrospective: a compendium of the many people, events and twists of fate that apparently made Donald Trump feel this human emotion
    Trumpstradamus: DJT’s amazing 140-character predictions-none of which came true!
    The Hall of Nicknames: the greatest of Trump’s monikers, from ‘Lyin’ Ted’ to ‘Low I.Q. Crazy Mika’, accompanied by original caricature artwork
    Trump vs. Trump: You’re going to want to sit for this one. Donald Trump has sometimes been known to contradict himself.
    Always the Best: the greatest boasts of the greatest boaster of all time, ever!

    Comprising hundreds of Trump tweets, and featuring a foreword by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Jon Meacham, and even a place for readers to add their own future Trump tweet highlights – because he is making new Twitter history literally every day – The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library is a unique portrait of an artist whose masterworks will be studied by historians, grammarians, and mental health professionals for years to come.

  • When Jo Brand hosted Have I Got News For You late last year, her calm explanation of the effects of sexism on women to a bemused all-male cast turned into a viral phenomenon.

    There has been a whole tradition of books over hundreds of years where a father shares his wisdom with his son – started by Lord Chesterfield in the eighteenth century; while women have been silent (a.k.a. bullied into thinking their advice wasn’t worth writing down). This book puts a stop to all that.

    Ranging from your family and how to survive it, to what no one tells you about the female body; from how not to fall in love, to heckling as a life-skill. Born Lippy gathers together the things Jo’s learnt about the world, the things she wishes she’d known and the things she hopes for the future into a hilarious and highly useful guide to life that everyone female (and male) needs to read immediately.

    Packed with memorable anecdotes from her life and career, coloured by her experiences as a psychiatric nurse and working mother of two, this book will not only entertain but also really help people.

  • Bill Bailey’s wonderfully charming and informative book on the birds he loves is now available as a handy, easy-to-carry pocket paperback. Packed with the comedian’s observations, illustrations and sketches, this edition is perfect for birdwatching expeditions, with new information for proper twitchers, including:
    A ‘British Birds’ checklist
    A list of the best birdwatching sites in the UK
    Suggestions of bird spotting equipment
    Information about joining a birdwatching club
    Bailey takes us on a journey around the British Isles, zooming in on those birds that enthuse him the most.
    Whether it’s what they eat, where they fly to or how they communicate, these birds are always fascinating, and he introduces us to their weird and wonderful ways in a manner that is always entertaining. If you’re a parent who’d like to appear a bit clever when your child asks you the name of a bird; if you want to find a new and healthy hobby that takes you outdoors; or whether, quite simply, you want to understand a bit more about our natural environment and have a laugh at the same time, this is the companion book to have.
    Funny and insightful, and positively crackling with energy, knowledge and wit, this beautiful paperback will delight Bailey’s fans, birds as well as those who fancy a bit of armchair escapism.
    Alongside music and stand-up, one of Bailey’s favourite pastimes is birdwatching, which he has been doing since he was a child in the West Country. His fondest memories are of family outings with parents, grandparents and cousins, ticking the birds off in his little Observer’s Book of Birds. As he has said about those formative years, ‘birdwatching gave a purpose to the day and a love of the natural world which has carried on into my adult life’.
