The complete final series of the ground-breaking BBC Radio comedy starring Tony Hancock - plus five bonus episodes. Created by Ray Galton and Alan Simpson in 1954, Hancock's Half Hour was the radio vehicle that made Tony Hancock a household name. Each week listeners would be admitted to the sometimes fantastical, sometimes mundane life of 'the lad 'imself'.

This audiobook is about hypnosis and how to use it effectively. It will teach you what hypnosis is and how to hypnotize both individuals and groups of people anytime and anywhere you choose. No prior experience of hypnosis is required to understand and apply the knowledge in this book. The techniques are deceptively simple yet incredibly powerful. They are entirely practical and have been road tested over many years, with thousands of people.

It's 1992. Colonna is offered a fee he can’t refuse to ghostwrite a memoir. His subject, Braggadocio, is convinced that Mussolini’s corpse was a body double and part of a wider Fascist plot. When a body is found stabbed to death in a back alley, even Colonna is jolted out of his complacency. Fuelled by conspiracy theories, Mafiosi, love, corruption and murder, Número Zero reverberates with the clash of forces that have shaped Italy since the Second World War.

If you like Eco then this won't disappoint you, well worth the time to go through. Name of the rose is another great one by Eco.

Just a great book from start to finish with interesting characters and storyline, kept me interested all the way through. I would suggest the others by Barbery too.

Really not worth the money, no content of any substance, just the usual same style of presentation used in all nonsense self help books. I was hoping for some in depth information on NLP and how it may be interpreted and used, no such luck unfortunately. Don't get this book.
