The title of this book comes from the way I have lived my life - by flirting with it. Attachment bogs you down and limits you as an individual. I live life to the fullest, always looking to doing things I have not done before. All my learning comes from doing, not merely reading. This philosophy has helped me grow beyond the confines of education, profession and society, and explore my creative side. I seek expression in writing stories and making short films. Flirt with Life is my third book, after Faceless – The Only Way Out and An Anglo-Indian in Love. As with my previous books, there is a bit of me here too, but in the form of quotes, thoughts, observations and beliefs from a lifetime of flirting with being an engineer, entrepreneur, patent holder, son, husband, father, creator and love guru!

An absorbing portrait of an extraordinary man, an analysis of the work of a great Russian poet, and the evocation of a crucial period in Russian cultural history—all are combined in Edward J. Brown's literary biography of Vladimir Mayakovsky. It is the only book to reveal the whole Mayakovsky, not just aspects of his tortured personality or artistic work, and will be immediately recognized as definitive. Mayakovsky contributed to the cultural life of Soviet Russia not only as a lyric poet but as a playwright, graphic artist, and satirist of the conventional art forms of his day. By examining his art in terms of his life, Edward Brown shows how intensely personal it was and how bound up in the literary and political history of his time. The intellectual turmoil of the period is skillfully re-created, especially the nature, ambience, and personalities of Russian futurism. Above all, the book reveals the man—a committed Bolshevik and a dedicated artist, but also a hypochondriac, compulsive gambler, and eventual suicide. Originally published in 1973.

His Way is the only authorised biography of New Zealand prime minister Robert Muldoon - one of the dominant political figures of the last half-century in that country. His Way was based on many hours of conversation with Muldoon himself as well as colleagues, friends, and family, and wide access to the prime minister's official and private papers and diaries. Leading political biographer Barry Gustafson shows Muldoon is shown as a champion of the ordinary people whose vision over time became anachronistic and inflexible.
Who Ya Bagging For? I have been told to bag for the cashier, the other bagger, or the supervisor. But very rarely have I been told to bag for the guest. This seems funny to me. Now if they wanted to tell me to take over for the other employee or the guest(s), that would make sense, but the easy, lazy way to communicate seems to be the only way they know how. You’d think someone that has the skills to do this job would at least know the difference between bagging for the cashier, etc., and the guests
