Spark for the Fire is for those who want to excel. It's for the people who are passionate about what they want to do. So passionate it makes them mad enough to think they can impact the world for the better by doing it. It is for anyone wanting to put their imagination to use, in any discipline. Lastly, this book is for the youthful; in age, experience or attitude - and those who want to be - whether to kick-start a career or reignite an established one. In this honest and inspiring book, Ian Wharton examines how creativity is something best practiced by embracing useful characteristics of youth. You don't have to be young for that. These characteristics lie within all of us and the stories in this book are simply reminders how to make the most of them. Stories that show why creativity favours intuition, the merits of exploration, creative purpose, and the necessity of daring to fail. Spark for the Fire features contributions from some of the most inspiring creative people in the world. From Nick Park, Academy Award winner and creator of Wallace & Gromit, to Jamie Oliver - a phenomenon of the food world, TED Prize winner and one of Fast Company's Most Creative People.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man would establish Joyce as a leader in the movement know as literary modernism. It is set in late 19th century Ireland, and features the education of a young man, Stephen Dedalus, Joyce's alter ego. His education is not only scholarly, but an intellectual, emotional and moral formation as he sheds himself of his Roman Catholic roots and develops as a writer. A Portrait of the Artist is not a breezy read. There's not a whole lot of action either - it's almost all an introspective, impressionistic meandering of a budding author. The plot line and prose can be difficult, which will require a closer reading. That said, this is a cornerstone of literature for its description of a once innocent young boy who grows dissatisfied with the world, and grows at odds with himself philosophically and psychologically. Journey through Joyce's head as a young man as his Dadalus overturns nearly every facet of his life: religion, class, his education, and morality.

Is protest broken? Micah White, co-creator of Occupy Wall Street, thinks so. Disruptive tactics have failed to halt the rise of Donald Trump. Movements ranging from Black Lives Matter to environmentalism are leaving activists frustrated. Meanwhile, recent years have witnessed the largest protests in human history. Yet these mass mobilizations no longer change society. Now activism is at a crossroads: innovation or irrelevance. In The End of Protest Micah White heralds the future of activism. Drawing on his unique experience with Occupy Wall Street, a contagious protest that spread to eighty-two countries, White articulates a unified theory of revolution and eight principles of tactical innovation that are destined to catalyze the next generation of social movements. Despite global challenges—catastrophic climate change, economic collapse and the decline of democracy—White finds reason for optimism: the end of protest inaugurates a new era of social change. On the horizon are increasingly sophisticated movements that will emerge in a bid to challenge elections, govern cities and reorient the way we live. Activists will reshape society by forming a global political party capable of winning elections worldwide. In this provocative playbook, White offers three bold, revolutionary scenarios for harnessing the creativity of people from across the political spectrum. He also shows how social movements are created and how they spread, how materialism limits contemporary activism, and why we must re-conceive protest in timelines of centuries, not days. Rigorous, original and compelling, The End of Protest is an exhilarating vision of an all-encompassing revolution of revolution.

Fifteen-year-old Kambili's world is circumscribed by the high walls and frangipani trees of her family compound. Her wealthy Catholic father, under whose shadow Kambili lives, while generous and politically active in the community, is repressive and fanatically religious at home. When Nigeria begins to fall apart under a military coup, Kambili's father sends her and her brother away to stay with their aunt, a University professor, whose house is noisy and full of laughter. There, Kambili and her brother discover a life and love beyond the confines of their father's authority. The visit will lift the silence from their world and, in time, give rise to devotion and defiance that reveal themselves in profound and unexpected ways. This is a book about the promise of freedom; about the blurred lines between childhood and adulthood, between love and hatred, between the old gods and the new.
