With his new title, Flash, Lenny Kravitz makes his mark in a new arena of the creative arts. During his childhood, Kravitz was enthralled by cameras, playing with them like toys instead of taking photographs. In recent years photographer friends taught him the fundamentals of photography by using a Leica. Intrigued by the possibilities, Kravitz began creating his own works, featuring close attention to the nuances and effects created by light. As he himself had been endlessly photographed by photographers, paparazzi, and fans—his perspective on aesthetics was decidedly unique. In Flash, he captures the essence of what it’s like to be a rock star who’s constantly in the public eye. The result: an intense exploration of the photographer and his subject. • This thrilling collection documents Kravitz’s world tours, offering a rare record of the nomadic musical life • Flash signals an exciting new chapter in the annals of rock photography • A must-have for fans of Lenny Kravitz and all those fascinated by the world of contemporary celebrity

There’s been a revolution in the family; it’s now all about the kids. Our homes are overrun with their toys and our diaries packed with their schedule of social and educational activities. We’ve lost control and we don’t know how to redress the balance. Thankfully, we’ve moved on from the days of children being forced to sit at the dinner table until they’ve eaten every scrap of overcooked cabbage, but we’re now plagued with the worry of ending up with ‘that child’ – the one running amok in shops and classrooms. This book combines newer and traditional childrearing methods and applies a common sense ‘best of both worlds’ approach – one that works in the modern world for modern families. In this manifesto of new old-fashioned parenting there’s no pandering, no spoiling, and definitely no dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets at dinner time.

The road to school system improvement can be a rocky one. The nature of schools and school systems makes them very difficult to change. These are complex organisations, subject to a range of demands and opportunities from multiple stakeholders – from parents and governments, from local communities and business, from other educational authorities and institutions, and, of course, from their staff and students. Effective educational leaders appreciate this complexity and work with colleagues and others across and beyond their education system to make a positive and meaningful difference. Pathways to School System Improvement is designed for educators with an interest and responsibility for school system improvement. It looks at effective strategies for implementing system improvement and presents approaches for capitalising on the successes and overcoming the shortcomings of initiative-based reforms.

How to Live on 24 Hours a Day

As you look back on the year that has just passed, do you feel as though you spent another twelve months merely existing instead of truly living? Do you often go to bed at night with an anxious, sinking feeling that you wasted away another precious day of your limited time here on earth? Originally published in 1910 and written by Arnold Bennett, How to Live on 24 Hours a Day argues time is the most precious resource you have and offers down-to-earth, practical advice about how to make the most of your day and how to strike the work life balance - an issue still at the forefront of modern society's concerns.The important lesson, according to Bennett, is to commit to carving out some time each day to do things that will really enrich your life and help you progress. Investing all your hours in a job you dislike; your routine consisting of getting up, going to work, coming home, unwinding and going to bed - Bennett argues that this is not living but simply existing. Bennett's solution is to make the most of the time either side of working hours, the commute, the evening hours, and that golden time, the weekend!Time can be spent in various pursuits, from literature, enjoying of the arts or even just time spent in reflection. This pioneering and original lifestyle and time management guide is succinctly and cleverly written in an easy-to-read and narrative style that readers will enjoy and find as useful today as it was a hundred years ago.

Letting go is the strongest thing I’ve ever done...' As ‘modern’ women, being truly happy and successful can feel like something of a contradiction.

Do we have the guts to let go and be happy? Exploring the issues of love, loss, healing and happiness, this manifesto for freedom from one of feminism’s liveliest voices will guide you on the path to feeling newly, truly confident.
