THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 'Unforgettable . . . a hilarious, poignant and impassioned plea to revolutionise our attitudes to death' Gavin Francis, Guardian From her first day at Westwind Cremation & Burial, twenty-three-year-old Caitlin Doughty threw herself into her curious new profession. Coming face-to-face with the very thing we go to great lengths to avoid thinking about she started to wonder about the lives of those she cremated and the mourning families they left behind, and found herself confounded by people's erratic reactions to death. Exploring our death rituals - and those of other cultures - she pleads the case for healthier attitudes around death and dying. Full of bizarre encounters, gallows humour and vivid characters (both living and very dead), this illuminating account makes this otherwise terrifying subject inviting and fascinating.

"For more than a hundred years, the cigarette industry has hired some of the world's cleverest designers to make smoking appeal to as many different types of men and women in as many different cultures as possible." "The introduction traces the interwoven history of cigarettes and their packaging, from the earliest hand-rolled smokes preferred by soldiers, sailors, and bohemians to the latest trendy pack adopted by the young and terminally hip. History in the larger sense intersects in unexpected ways, with brands posi tioned to help win wars, glorify local dictators, and immortalize the masses. Thematic chapters ranging from Orientalism to Snob Appeal to Cigarette Indians survey the different categories of designs favored over the years as well as chronicling not only such famous campaigns as the Marlboro Man and Joe Camel but also such lesser-known oddities as Fems, Fez, and Wooden-Kimona Nails."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Smoke Gets In Your Eyes by Susan C. Barto is a group of short stories about life, love, marriage and family. The author delves into a myriad of aspects of love and relationships between spouses, children, and lovers. Some of the stories seem to reflect pain and its subsequent growth as the protagonist comes out on the other side. One story tells about Emily Dickenson as the author imagines her and what her life and emotions may have been like. Other stories are more prosaic describing the love between husband and wife as they interact with each other and their off-spring.Susan C. Barto has been writing for over fifteen years. Her stories have the ring of truth and express a range of emotions swinging from joy flashes to times of suffering. However, the overriding message seems to show hope as it wins over despair. Hope, the author seems to say, helps people carry on while despair put us down in a valley. All shades of love are covered from flirtation to a 41 year marriage. Love sets us free and provides balm to fractured spirits. The author seems to believe that love never dies, and expresses this belief. Susan C. Barto has written several earlier books of short stories.

After giving up smoking on four previous occasions for two lots of four years,and one for two years,and then one for only ten months. I realized where i was going wrong.I actually thought i liked smoking,so when i realized that it was an addictive drug called nicotine,i thought it was about time i treated this this addiction seriously.So i thought about it for a few weeks and worked out a plan of action,that i would carry out to the end,and never want to take up smoking again. As i’d used many different ways previously to stop smoking,i thought why not come up with an idea that combined three different methods to work in conjunction with each other.A three pronged attack. First phase; would be self hypnosis-dead Easy –honest. Second phase;Do it in a slow and methodical & controlled way Third phase;Using basic maths to come off it slowly but surely.
