Perfect Your Writing: How to be a stylish, insightful and convincing writer. Audiobook

Perfect Your Writing: How to be a stylish, insightful and convincing writer.

Author: Arnold Bennett, Mark Twain, William Strunk Jr Narrator: Chirag Patel Release Date: February 2022

Are you keen to perfect your writing? This audiobook will teach you how to be a stylish, insightful and convincing writer. This compilation includes Twain's On the Decay of the Art of Lying, Strunk's The Elements of Style, and Bennett's The Author's Craft - all in one. The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr first clarifies the writer's understanding of how to - correctly. In it, Strunk has laid a detailed, essential map, one he believed pays off, for in unlocking the secrets of style, one opens the terrain for mastery of literature.Now over a century since its first publication, the book is anything but outdated, as it is still widely used today – just testament to Strunk’s timeless knowledge and mastery with the pen.'The skilled observer ... does not have to change his mind.' – Arnold Bennett.The Author's Craft is Arnold Bennett’s four-part writing tutorial. As an esteemed journalist, novelist and playwright, he believed truly 'Seeing Life' primed the pen, out of which 'Writing Novels', 'Writing Plays' and 'The Artist and The Public' emerge. In the exposition, he expands on how to see the world, and how to not overlook the details most miss… These skills and techniques give rise to the craft he feels the author is really trying to achieve: art.Mark Twain’s “On the Decay of the Art of Lying” was his wryly told essay on why he felt the world needs educated lying, published in 1880 for a meeting of the Historical and Antiquarian Club of Hartford, Connecticut. The way he saw it, everyone lies at some point in their lives. Twain decided that lying could be a valuable skillset in various different arenas - provided you knew how to do it well, and didn’t try to hurt anybody. As he put it, 'What chance has the ignorant uncultivated liar against the educated expert? What chance have I against Mr. Per—against a lawyer? Judicious lying is what the world needs.'

How to live on 24 Hours a Day read by Russ Williams Audiobook

How to live on 24 Hours a Day read by Russ Williams

Author: Arnold Bennett Narrator: Russ Williams Release Date: October 2021

Arnold Bennett's classic 'Time Management' book that most certainly still rings true today as we strive to control our busy lives. We tend to value money more rather than time, in the words of Bennett…'Newspapers are full of articles explaining how to live on such-and-such a sum…but I have never seen an essay 'how to live on 24 hours a day.' Yet it has been said that time is money. That proverb understates the case. Time is a great deal more than money. If you have time, you can obtain money-usually. But…you cannot buy yourself a minute more time'. You will learn how to make the time you need to acquire what you want out of life and what you want to achieve. There is no magic formula just an explanation of how most people use and waste their time and he shows you another way of using time to your best advantage. Bennett combines his reasoned and proven methods to explain with a fair degree of humour where people go wrong and how to avoid a typical day can be altered for the better even if you have a demanding full-time job. Time is precious. 'We shall never have more time. We have, and have always had, all the time there is.' says Bennett. Working on the 'mind' is key to Bennett. The first thing to do he says, is not to consider your life is your workday. He offers a solution to reading a newspaper or scrolling social media pages on the morning commute and explains the changes you can make and how to do them to make the most of your time. Evenings are a bug bear of Bennett's too. They are rife for aimless time wasting and this is an area of your being and consciousness that needs to be and can be easily addressed. Arnold Bennett embraces every minute of his day and uses his time to great effect and success. He certainly doesn't have any anxiety or stress to contend with. 'How To Live On 24 Hours A Day' will make you smile, make you embarrassed and give you a completely new understanding of TIME and how best to use it for your benefit and that of your work life and family life. It is one of the classic time management books. 'You say your day is already full to overflowing. How? You actually spend in earning your livelihood – how much? Seven hours on the average. And in sleep, seven? I will add another two to be generous. And I will defy you to account for me the other 8 hours on the spur of the moment'. A. Bennett – author and time management specialist.

How to Live on 24 Hours a Day Audiobook

How to Live on 24 Hours a Day

Author: Arnold Bennett Narrator: Donal Brown Release Date: June 2020

You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose. Are you really 'living', or just existing? Do you want to improve yourself or just continue to muddle through? Do you use the time given you each day, or just throw most of it away? These questions Bennett asks each of us and for those who want to really live and learn, offers very valuable advice. Time is the most precious of commodities states Bennett in this book. Many books have been written on how to live on a certain amount of money each day. And he added that the old adage 'time is money' understates the matter, as time can often produce money, but money cannot produce more time. Time is extremely limited, and Bennett urged others to make the best of the time remaining in their lives.

Self and Self-management Audiobook

Self and Self-management

Author: Arnold Bennett Narrator: Johnnie Ray Release Date: March 2020

Self and Self-Management: Essays about Existing is one of Bennett's most successful works, comprising a series of essays that address the struggles concerning work that mainly young women have faced during his time, at an individual level. The essays start at a basis that seems to suggest all individuals have a certain ability to use their energy wisely while working, and to either tap into their own resources, or use tactics of avoidance that can be extremely elaborate at a psychological level. According to Bennett, 'some individuals appear to lack energy, when, in fact, they are full of energy which is merely dormant.' The essays themselves tackle issues that we are faced with on a daily basis even today. The lack of useful energy, inspiration and motivation that even the most brilliant people in the world seem to cope with at times often leads to debilitating consequences, many of which can be avoided - according to Bennett - with a proper understanding of the process. The author takes us through a deep psychological and philosophical journey into the human psyche, that seems to lead to practical applications and results, however, only for those willing to put the ideas of books such as this one to the task.

Mental Efficiency Audiobook

Mental Efficiency

Author: Arnold Bennett Narrator: Ava Goldin Release Date: March 2020

In this light-hearted yet thought-provoking book, Bennett offers his thoughts on exercising the mind, organising your life, the advantages (and disadvantages) of marriage and other pocket philosophies. A man honestly tries to make a good impression. What is the result? The result merely is that his friends, in the privacy of their minds, set him down as a man who tries to make a good impression. If much depends on the result of a single interview, or a couple of interviews, a man may conceivably force another to accept an impression of himself which he would like to convey.

How to Live on 24 Hours a Day: The Complete Original Edition Audiobook

How to Live on 24 Hours a Day: The Complete Original Edition

Author: Arnold Bennett Narrator: Bruce Kramer Release Date: February 2020

Learn to use your most precious commodity—time—to truly live. Arnold Bennett’s classic book, How to Live on 24 Hours a Day, has been changing the way people use and consider their time since it was first published in 1910. In the intervening century surprisingly little has changed—we still struggle to make use of our time and are often plagued by the persistent worry that we are not making the most of our lives. Bennett encourages listeners to stop merely following the rote patterns of their lives and leverage their free hours by viewing time as a commodity like money—each of us is allotted exactly 24 hours every day to spend as we see fit. What we make of our lives will ultimately be a result of what we make of that time. Bennett’s prescription is simple, but revolutionary: consider the time outside your work day as an entirely separate day, sixteen hours (give or take) during which you are free to do anything you like to grow and improve yourself and your happiness. Building on that premise, he helps listeners begin to take control of their time—starting with just 90 minutes three times a week—and use it to truly live. Bennett’s writing is realistic and his advice transcends the years since it was first written. How to Live on 24 Hours a Day is an honest and refreshing perspective on how we can seize control of our time and spend it in the wisest way possible. A Macmillan Audio production from St. Martin's Essentials

The Matador of the Five Towns Audiobook

The Matador of the Five Towns

Author: Arnold Bennett Narrator: Ghizela Rowe, Richard Mitchley Release Date: January 2020

Arnold Bennett was born in 1867 in Hanley one of the six towns that formed the Potteries that later joined together to become Stoke On Trent; the area in which most of his works are located. For a short time he worked for his solicitor father before realising that to advance his life he would need to become his own man. Moving to London at 21 he obtained work as a solicitor’s clerk and gradually moved into a career of Journalism.At the turn of the Century he turned full time to writing and shortly thereafter in 1903 he moved to Paris and in 1908 published to great acclaim The Old Wives Tale. With this his reputation was set. Clayhanger and The Old Wives Tale are perhaps his greatest and most lauded novels. But standing next to these are many fine short stories and it is to these in this volume we turn our attention. Bennett bathes us in vignettes of life, of characters that whatever their ambitions are easy to immerse ourselves in.

Author: Arnold Bennett Narrator: , Don Gilet, Kate O'flynn, Neil Dudgeon, Rebekah Staton, Tim Mcinnerny Release Date: September 2019

Neil Dudgeon and Tim McInnerny star in this epic tale of money, passion and defiance, inspired by the 'Five Towns' novels of Arnold Bennett In this radical reinterpretation of Arnold Bennett's classic novels set in the Staffordshire potteries, it's the 19th Century and the Industrial Revolution is at full throttle. Only the ruthless thrive in this uncompromising world - and Ephraim Tellwright and Darius Clayhanger are both determined to succeed. From humble beginnings, these two self-made men have risen to become wealthy and powerful. Now, they hold the fate of the Five Towns in their hands, passing judgement on those who put the prosperity and reputation of their community at risk... Over 11 hours and almost 40 years, we follow them, their descendants and the inhabitants of Bursley and the Five Towns, as individuals rise, fall, flourish, age and see the world around them become unrecognisable, transformed by new technology. Fortunes are lost, hearts broken, empires built and compromises made. These tales of aspiration and passion, damage and danger are told with Bennett's forensic eye for human psychology and a surprising degree of witty comedy, and feature a star cast including Emma Cunniffe, Kate O'Flynn, Don Gilet and Rebekah Staton.
