Rodney Trudgeon’s Concert Notes is a collection of essays on famous classical, orchestral compositions. The pieces in this collection – short reflections on well-known classical compositions – have appeared in concert programmes that have accompanied performances by the Cape Town and Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestras. The author is a well-known radio host and presenter on Fine Music Radio. He is an expert on the range of musical genres that broadly fall under the category ‘classical music’. The text that comprises Rodney Trudgeon’s Concert Notes is structured alphabetically according to composer and gives a broad overview of the development of classical music, starting with the Baroque period and ending with modern, atonal music. Each piece is dedicated to a particular musical composition, describing its highlights, its history, and what makes it unique. Broadly, the pieces are grouped together according to the following three broad categories: ouvertures, concertos, and symphonies, mimicking the structure of concert programmes. Each entry also includes a short biography of its composer. Trudgeon’s style is easy to read and accessible to all readers: from those who listen to classical music regularly to those who are unfamiliar with it. Overall, this collection is a useful and informative musical guide, making a case for listening to orchestral music.

Alfred David and Mary Elizabeth Meek have compiled a collection of fairy tales that ranges from the Grimm brothers' inimitable recreations of archetypal folktales to the modern prose charm of James Thurber's Many Moons. The appeal of the stories is wide and varied: the refined intelligence of Perrault, the wondrous imagination of Andersen, the descriptive power of Ruskin, the bittersweet melancholy of Wilde. These are but a few of the artists represented in this remarkably inclusive selection of works from Germany, Russia, France, Scandinavia, England, and America. Many are in new translations in the modern idiom and all testify eloquently to the unceasing vitality of this literary genre.

Coaching as a field has mushroomed in recent years. Thousands of new coaches enter the field after only completing short and superficial training programmes. The problem with this is that coaching is not i) something you can simply learn in a short programme ii) a superficial practice. The books available on coaching tend to just reinforce this by going over coaching methodology, without delving into what it really means to be a coach. The Coaching Secret remedies this by going beneath the surface, looking at what it really means to be a coach and showing how you can go from simply understanding the basic coaching process to truly connecting and relating to the client - and becoming a master coach. The author brings over 20 years of coaching practice in big corporations to help you move beyond the novice/superficial coach to becoming an expert/master coach. He brings together experience, theory, case studies and lots of interactive work to essentially coach the coach and help them achieve a superior coaching level. Key reader outcomes Practical assistance to become a better coach – moving from novice to expert to master. Increased confidence in your personal coaching competence. Greater clarity to the value of the coaching relationship and how we coach. New perspectives on coaching methods. To answer for yourself some of the crucial questions of the coach including: Who is the coach? How do you coach? And why do you coach? To deepen your understanding of coaching and to demystify the inner process through which we develop our competency and practice. To awaken the coach to discover new ways of seeing, thinking, sensing, resolving and relating. To progress the profession – in offering a new vision of coaching that recognises and evolves the role of the coach.
