Review: This is not a long book that might deter readers by its size. It is a slim volume (114pp) which is well worth reading in small considered doses. Fortunately it is divided into many short sections. If you are the sort of person who likes to THINK, not necessarily meditate, I can recommend this. Every so often there is a real gem of a thought. Most people have fairly dull or routine lives, many have to spend a lot of their time doing chores, or other dull things. Has this dull time any value? Perhaps we waste hours of life in traffic jams nowadays - well De Caussade has thoughts on the ordinary frustrations of life. He suggests that they do indeed have value. Great value! His reasoning is simple and there is a warmth behind it which reflects someone who cares about ordinary folk. Remarkable for its time, this eighteenth century book has much to say to us in the modern world. It should be better known. Thoroughly recommended.

Review: I found this book very wishy washy-it was hard to get hold of anything concrete. The author seems to be saying again and again 'abandon yourself to divine providence' without saying how you would do this. He says. 'The soul should only proceed according to the inspiration of the Holy Spirit for if it were to act according to its own ideas it would make no progress,' but he does not tell how you can be sure you are following the Holy Spirit and not your own ideas masquerading as divine will. The author suggests several times that reading books will not help you whilst writing the same basic idea at length for you to read. He seems to be saying accept whatever happens to you as the will of God ( I may have got that wrong-the writing is not of the clearest) without qualifying this in any way.

  • Waterstones Jazz Images By Jean-Pierre Leloir

    Price: £39.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Jean-Pierre was himself a musician, but his choice of instrument was a camera, which he never put away. - Michel Legrand I am so happy to see Leloir's work published, because behind each image is a story - one that needs to be told and appreciated. Leloir was not just a photographer; instead he was a preserver of history. As a result, this book holds hundreds of stories that shine a light onto the lives of those who live in these pages. Leloir had a unique ability to preserve an entire atmosphere and its surrounding emotions. Between the four corners of a picture, but beyond his talent as a photographers, he presented himself not as paparazzi, but a friend. He and my other brother Herman Leonard were two of a kind; they had the same passion for photography and an endless supply of vision. - Quincy Jones This book gives ample proof of Jean-Pierre Leloir's amazing ability to immortalise performers and to capture candid moments at the airport, backstage, and in the dressing rooms of the most legendary Paris jazz and concert venues: I loved the people I photographed, so I made myself as available, yet as discreet as possible, he used to say. I never wanted to be a paparazzi. I wanted them to forget my presence so I could catch those little unexpected moments. The selection of photographs showcased here has been carefully selected from Leloir's immense catalogue. Many of the images have never been previously published before, and can be easily catalogued as 'atypical' shots, as the musicians were captured primarily in spontaneous situations, away from the fanfare of the stage. Text in English with an introduction in English, French and Spanish. Waterstones Jazz Images By Jean-Pierre Leloir - shop the best deal online on thebookbug.co.uk
