Part 1: Daniel Fryer, author of The Four Thoughts That F*ck You Up, & John Williams, the author of Screw Work Let’s Play & Screw Work Break Free, reveal all about self help books to presenters Paul Waters & Stevyn Colgan. Daniel Fryer is also a former journalist & specialist practitioner of rational-emotive behaviour therapy. He used to growl a lot & immerse himself in Bingo. John Williams talks about the Ideas Lab & applying his self help skills to dating & relationships. (How well did that work out? Have a listen...) We’ll also be discussing he challenges of having a swear word in your book title - so this episode includes words like “fuck”. Sorry, we couldn’t really avoid it. If that makes you cross, you may console yourself with the information that book titles which include swear words are more difficult to search for on Amazon. **** Also in this episode, we visit the delightful & welcoming Book House in Thame & owner Brian Pattinson. It’s a joyful place. The owner is from Newby. And he gave Paul a free book - the utterly wonderful The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne. You should read it immediately & sigh & laugh. But mainly laugh. Also, order your copy from The Book House in Thame.
