Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's translation of Leon Denis's The Mystery of Joan of Arc.

Not a bad read, part biography, part spiritual searching although at some point it did go too deep into overly religious talk. All in all I enjoyed reading it.

Vi racconto mio nonno! 👨🏼‍🦳👀
Marco Bursi nacque il 14 ottobre 1927 a Menfi in provincia di Agrigento. Studiò giurisprudenza all'università di Palermo, ottenendo il diploma di laurea il 7 giugno 1953. Egli fu un avvocato, preside e professore di francese al liceo. Nel corso della sua vita si appassionò a diverse discipline e da autodidatta fu anche un musicista, scrittore, fotografo, chef e amante della cucina a tal punto di aprire un proprio ristorante, ancora oggi in attività; all'età di 60 anni si appassionò anche all'arte cominciando a dipingere scorci di paesaggi e natura morta, migliorando sempre di più nel corso degli anni e vincendo vari premi locali. Il 20 maggio 2001 morì all'età di 73 anni a causa di un'aneurisma cerebrale. Ad oggi i suoi dipinti (circa una cinquantina) sono conservati a casa sua e nelle varie proprietà di famiglia.

QUOTE: "All ideas come about through some sort of observation. It sparks an attitude; some object or emotion causes a reaction in the other person".
.
Born	in Leicester, Leicestershire, England	(1941) and passed away in Maidstone, Kent, England (1989).
.
ACTING TRAINING: He attended the 'Footlights', an amateur theatrical club run by the students of Cambridge University.
.
ONE GREAT PERFORMANCE: Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)
.
CURIOUS FACT: Graham Chapman wrote an autobiography in 1980 and he did a reading of the book before he died in 1989. But in 2011, the Monty Python's living members participated in an animated film based on Chapman's book, using his recorded voice to resurrect him. The film's title: 'A Liar's Autobiography'. WHAT THEY SAID ABOUT HIM: (Extract from John Cleese's speech during a memorial service dedicated to Graham) "Anything for him but mindless good taste. I could hear him whispering in my ear last night as I was writing this: 'Alright, Cleese, you’re very proud of being the first person to ever say ‘sh**’ on television. If this service is really for me, just for starters, I want you to be the first person ever at a British memorial service to say ‘f***’!".

"My policing was nothing but activism - it had to be" 📚 Book Review 📚 🎖️'I Dare' is the Biography of India's first Woman IPS officer Dr. @kiranbediofficial

Lessons to be learned 💭
1️⃣ To be the star -
She saw and lived the dream during the times of male dominated society. Woman's birth was meant as marriage. With her parents support, she acquired best education and became the 1st Woman IPS🎖️ 2️⃣ To be the best -
She had great hunger to be the best. She was at top everywhere. She had  won the Asian World Woman's Championship in Tennis. With her top qualities she competed with men and at times was better than them doing duty. 
3️⃣ To do something one can only dream of -
Tihar prison in Delhi is one of the toughest jails in South Asia. When she was appointed as Inspector General of Tihar jail, she changed the heart of prisoners and made them  a complete human with her social reforms programs. She included Yoga, meditation, vipassana. To make some of the dangerous criminals do these requires great skills. For her inspiring work she was awarded Ramon Magsaysay award.

4️⃣ Law is equal for all -
When she was appointed as Delhi’s Deputy Commissioner of Police, Traffic, she once towed away then prime minister Indira Gandhi’s car when it was parked illegally.

She Dared! She is a star🌟
What are your thoughts on this?💬 Do we need more like them? Have you read the book?

I Am Alive and You Are Dead: A Journey Into the Mind Of Philip K. Dick, by Emmanuel Carrère (first UK edition/printing, Bloomsbury 2005). Available to purchase now through the eBay link.

Unusual for a biography in that it features barely any direct quotes from PKD himself, nor from family members and friends, and doesn't have the usual footnotes or index. Instead, French author Emmanuel Carrère has opted for a novelistic approach, using free indirect speech to effectively immerse the reader into the mind of his subject. It works well, staying true to the title's promise that this is going to be a journey, detailing along the way Dick's paranoiac, schizoid mindset and the delusions and conversions that led to him believing he was a target for the Russians, the FBI and the Nixon administration, as well as being a conduit for God/Ubik/Valis. Due to the subject matter it can be a tough read at times, but it's also a testament to Dick's generosity of spirit and his genuine talent as a writer. The word genius can be banded about too often but in this case it's hard to think of another moniker that best suits its subject. Highly recommended.

Uncanny Valley by Anna Wiener ⭐️⭐️⭐️This book made me feel a bit sick. It also made my head spin a little bit. It’s not that I didn’t know anything about data collection or the blissful toxicity of social media, or the infinite scroll blackout blinds permanently clouding our judgment, or the lure of empty instant gratification or the motivations & power of tech companies.... obviously. It’s just it was laid out completely bare. It’s easy to sweep away what we all know until it’s written right in front of you. It’s slightly ironic posting this review on social media, but it’s all part of the love/hate carrousel we’re all living on, I guess. At 25, Anna Wiener left her assistant publishing job in NYC & moved to Silicon Valley to take a job at a data analytics startup. This is her memoir...her swirling, addicitive, hungry, ground hog-esque, high- pressured yet mundanely relaxed, morally precarious, intoxicating, robotic, relentless, misogynistic, secretive, ambitious, disconnected story of her life in Silicon Valley and finding her way out. ‘The tension between old and new, between art and tech, between the quest for money and the quest for meaning- about how our world is changing forever’ 📖
