TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD
Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ’em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird’. A lawyer’s advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee’s classic novel – a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with exuberant humour the irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the thirties. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina of one man’s struggle for justice. But the weight of history will only tolerate so much. “To Kill a Mockingbird” is a coming-of-age story, an anti-racist novel, a historical drama of the Great Depression and a sublime example of the Southern writing tradition.
THE FRED FACTOR
Mark Sanborn met his postman, Fred, just after he moved to Denver. Fred knocked on his door, introduced himself and welcomed him to the neighbourhood. He also asked Sanborn about himself and how he wanted his mail handled while he was away. Needless to say, Sanborn was shocked. He asked Fred more about his job and how he approached it. Fred’s answers inspired him to develop motivational seminars promoting Fred’s attitude and approach to life. To embody the Fred philosophy is to realise and practise that: * Everyone can make a difference * Success is built on good relationships * You must continually create value for others and it doesn’t have to cost anything * You can reinvent yourself whenever you want. In this succinct and inspiring guide, Sanborn shows us how we can all truly make a difference everyday and become a ‘Fred’, as well as how to recognise, reward and attract Freds into our lives.
