Tolstoy, eat your heart out!

Has anyone else been watching the new BBC Sunday evening dramatisation of War and Peace? The second episode was aired on Sunday the 10th of January.

There was a lot of build up to it over the festive season and one of the issues that was written about was the apparent fact that none of the actors had read the book before they worked on the series. A few have now done so, most still haven't. The question, "Has anyone actually read War and Peace?" became a talking point in various publications. War and Peace is one of those books, perhaps like Lord of the Rings or Moby Dick, that a lot of people feel they should read, but don't get round to.

Why am I writing about War and Peace, you may askā€¦. Well, I may have mentioned that a book entitled 'HR for Creative Companies' is on its way.

War and Peace it ain't! I'm not envisaging a request for the film rights or a BBC series, but I am hoping that lots of people will read it.

For so many reasons:

1.It's well written and practical, so that everyone can understand and use its contents.

2.It uses humour and anecdote to punctuate the main points.

3.It has useful illustrations and flow charts.

4.It's only 164 pages long, clearly indexed and you can dip in and out of it.

All in all, it will be a book that will make your life easier. It's nearly here!
