How to Read Literature Like a Professor: A Lively and Entertaining Guide to Reading Between the Lines

How to Read Literature Like a Professor: A Lively and Entertaining Guide to Reading Between the Lines

A lively and entertaining guide to literature and literary basics – symbols, themes and contexts – that shows you how to make your everyday reading experience more enriching, satisfying and fun.

What does it mean when a literary hero is travelling along a dusty road? When he hands a drink to his companion? When he’s drenched in a sudden rain shower?

Most lay readers tend to stay on the surface of a book and though there’s much to enjoy there, the sneaking suspicion that we keep missing something – a deeper meaning, a hidden truth, a twist on the ordinary – prevails. A road, in a novel, poem or play, almost always symbolizes a quest of some kind, sharing a meal may signify a communion-like bond between two people and rain is seldom just rain, but usually means a cleansing experience or a symbolic re-birth. This amusing and instructive guide to literature teaches us how to get more out of reading, simply by looking at literature with the eyes – and the literary codes – of the ultimate professional reader, the college professor.

Ranging from the major themes (such as seasons, sex, vampires, violence, quests and geography), to literary models (the Bible, Shakespeare, Greek mythology and fairy tales) and narrative devices (irony, plot and symbol), How To Read Literature Like A Professor gives us a broad overview of literature and shows us how to make reading it more rewarding and fun.

Excellence: The Amitabh Bachchan Way

Excellence: The Amitabh Bachchan Way

What can Amitabh Bachchan’s life teach us in our pursuit of excellence? Everything.
Amitabh Bachchan is not just a brilliant actor or the ‘Superstar of the Millennium’. He is an institution in himself—not just for acting but everything that makes a person successful in his life. Most of his virtues—like professionalism, determination, a never-say-die attitude—are traits which one can follow to achieve the ‘Excellence’ everyone aspires for.
Four National Film Awards, 15 Filmfare Awards and 41 nominations hold testimony to his excellence. How does he sail through different phases of life—the good, the bad and the ugly, which in his case are the best, the worst and the horrid—unruffled? How did he manage an unpredictable film career along with a failed business venture and then rose like a phoenix, never to look back again? All this requires unwavering determination, willpower, patience and a disposition to take it all in one’s stride. In this book, educationist and inspirational guru Virender Kapoor analyses each and every trait of Bachchan that is immensely inspiring. Excellence: The Amitabh Bachchan Way not only reveals Big B’s professional ‘secrets’, it also teaches one how to make the best of what we have!

The Japanese Skincare Revolution: How to Have the Most Beautiful Skin of Your Life#At Any Age

The Japanese Skincare Revolution: How to Have the Most Beautiful Skin of Your Life#At Any Age

Japanese women are renowned for their beautiful skin, but until now there has been no book in English that reveals the secrets of the typical Japanese beauty routine. The Japanese Skincare Revolution is the first guide for women of all ages and races who want to have beautiful skin like the Japanese, and don’t want to spend lots of money on cosmetics and treatments to achieve it.

Author Chizu Saeki is a practicing aesthetician and beauty consultant whose dream is to teach ordinary women how to become more beautiful. To this end, she writes books, teaches, and tours Japan, giving demonstrations of the techniques she developed over a career spent in the beauty industry. Her books have sold more than 3 million copies in Japan, and the revolutionary ideas presented in this volume have won the approval of skin doctors within Japan and out.

The Japanese Skincare Revolution is Saeki’s best-selling skincare title, and her first to be translated into English. It is a distillation of all of her most essential techniques. In it, readers will be introduced to the lotion mask — a moisturizing treatment for keeping the skin fresh and lustrous; hand techniques for toning the muscles of the face; lymph massages for draining toxins and improving blood flow; natural, no-nonsense remedies for wrinkles, sagging, oiliness, pimples, and blackheads; "warm care" and "cool care" for soothing the mind and body; water massages to energize the skin; and much, much more.

Throughout the book, Saeki calls on the reader to use her own hands to touch and treat her face, and her own eyes to judge what her skin needs. She leads her toward a wholehearted skincare routine that will have her complimenting herself as her skin responds. By following Saeki’s advice, every woman will discover that it’s possible to have beautiful skin at any age — without spending a fortune.
