217 pages. There’s a whole cricket bag of things in here that set it apart from all those buck-a-dozen, predictable, inevitable biographies about footballers and cricketers, lady horse trainers and athletes. Or those snail- speed, picky code histories and record books. In this collection of stories you can ?nd a bucketful of stuff you never knew about. Another Bloody Sports Book contains dead-set outright proof positive that’ll squash some of sport’s most cherished moments and skewer some of its big names. And it does it all with a big wide grin. In order to come by this kind of highly con?dential and revealing gear it’s handy to have the services of a trio of knockabouts like Malcolm Andrews, John Byrell and Frank Crook who’ve witnessed more mix-ups, muck-ups and biff-ups than Tiger Woods has records.

232 pages including b/w cartoons. Tim Bowden is a larrikin. I want to alert you to the threat posed to this endangered species. There used to be a serious tradition of it at the ABC. Nowadays larrikinism gets pretty short shrift. Yet like Canute, Bowden stands against the tide. I think the secret lies in laughter. Tim Bowden makes me laugh. Out loud. You can't ask for better therapy than that.- Peter Thompson, Radio National Breakfast When Peter Thompson asked Tim Bowden to contribute a whimsical talk to close the breakfast program at the end of each week, Tim asked what he had in mind. "Oh, anything you like," he was told. So Tim's topics range widely, through pet hates like over-loud music in restaurants and pubs, to beach fishing, bad poetry, vexatious letters, demented pigeons, management jargon and communications. (Bowden's grandfather once owned a wooden telephone.)With considerable hilarity, irreverence, a zest for life and talented story-telling zeal, No Tern Unstonedis a wonderfully entertaining collection of Tim Bowden's wry observations of the world around him, past and present. Tim Bowden, AM, is an author, radio and television broadcaster and producer, and oral historian.

Pith Without Thubtanth, Brennan, Columb
18 Brennan, Columb Pith Without Thubtanth
Australia Law Institute of Victoria 1992 0908475527 / 9780908475520 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo Kerry Millard 
114 pages. Columb Brennan, who comes from a family of lawyers, journalists and politicians, was bred with an unshakeable trust in the rule of law and the legal profession. In his journalistic career with metropolitan newspapers, Columb spent some years on sub-editors’ tables, worked in London and did stints as a features writer, leader writer and columnist. After 30 years as leader of the law courts staff of the "Herald" and "Weekly Times" during which he was regarded as the doyen of legal journalists, he joined the staff of the Law Institute and has continued to work casually for it as a journalist since his retirement in 1983. Columb’s first newspaper article in 1933 was on humour in the law reports. Since then he has always had a eye for the funny things. Reviews: "All the law that seems important at the time will turn up in reported judgments but the characters who gave it life and the anecdotal evidence which is history would be lost without Col Brennan’s gentle storytelling and this volume of reports." Max Webberley, practice development advisor and former L.I.J. editor. "Through laughing at the law and lawyers we develop an appreciation of both what is right and what is wrong with the legal system and those who decorate it. The very best form of continuing legal education is between the covers of this book." Jon Faine, ABC Radio National’s The Law Report. "It cannot be said that this book is without 'thubtanth'. Like the author, the stories told in this publication get better with age. Thubtanth will definitely grace my bookshelves." J. "Darcy" Dugan. Minor wear to the cover.

Australia University of New South Wales Press 2009 1742230113 / 9781742230115 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
178 indexed pages. To newspaper correspondents, he is 'living in the past'; an 'arrogant toff' who needs 'a drink...poured over his head'. To some editors, who don't have time for his 'exploits', he is too 'opinionated' or 'divisive', while others 'don't know what to make of it'. He is a man of letters, of pedigree, of unimpeachable integrity, of ideas. No issue is beyond his octopus-like intellectual grasp, be it global warming, teenage sex, nut allergies, pole dancing, corporal punishment, the perils of pesto..."Oscar Brittle" is the creation of Glenn Fowler, Christopher Smyth and Gareth Malone. In an eighteen month campaign to wrest control of the debates in the nation's newspapers and magazines from the wishy-washies and the weaklings, Oscar Brittle became (arguably) the most significant and powerful contributor to public debate in contemporary Australia. This book is a collection of published letters and their originals, published replies from various correspondents, email exchanges between Oscar and editors, as well as the rejected letters, all interspersed with gorgeous illustrations throughout. This is a book that is not easily forgotten. Once you've read "Brittle", you will never read letters pages in the same way again. The authors are still be pinching themselves that the whole ruse came off. It couldn't be funnier. Oscar Brittleisa pseudonym for a trio of Australian humorists: Glenn Fowler, Gareth Malone, andChristopher Smyth.
