The Lost Art of Losing by Gregory Norminton

A couple of weeks ago I went to Gregory Norminton's book launch in Manchester.

He'd said it was a little book, and so it is, in terms of size. But then a book is best not assessed in terms of physical dimensions but in terms of ideas

and so, in some ways, The Lost Art of Losing is huge.

It is a book of aphorisms, and each time I dip in I find something witty and wise.

Just now I found 'A child's tantrum is infuriating because we cannot join in', and yesterday 'The past is a work in progress'.
