'Laura Vanderkam is one of the world's leading experts in time management and productivity . . . her insights in Off the Clock can change your life' - Dorie Clark, author of Stand Out

'Laura Vanderkam delivers a compelling and evidence-based argument that busyness is overrated in our current culture. Living a full life, at work and at home, is about doing the right things well, and confidently missing out on everything else' - Cal Newport, bestselling author of Deep Work

Learn to savour life's best moments - no matter how busy you are - through mindset shifts that alter your perception of time.

Laura Vanderkam, the acclaimed author of What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast, isn't like other time-management gurus. She's not trying to shave off 30 seconds here or there; she's interested in the emotional and psychological side of the 168 hours everyone has each week. Her message is that we all have more time than we think we do, and can feel less stressed while getting more done.

With the right habits, you can live efficiently and effectively, and yet still see time as abundant. For instance, Vanderkam teaches:

- How to clear your calendar of activities that are boring, stressful or simply not the best use of your time
- Why tackling your top priorities during the hours when you have the most energy will change your perception of what it means to be productive
- How to linger in great experiences while they're happening, and why good memories seem to make time expand

Packed with insights from busy yet relaxed professionals, including 'time makeovers' of people who are learning to use these tools, Off the Clock can inspire the rest of us to creative lives that are not only productive, but enjoyable in the moment.

Why Did They Lie?: The Irish Civil War, the Truth, Where and When It Began
Where and when did the Irish Civil War begin? Most people, with any knowledge of Irish history, would be able to tell you that hostilities commenced with the sacking of the Four Courts in Dublin, towards the end of June 1922. However, most people would be wrong! That is the view of Jack Kiernan, who sets out to investigate the roots of a tragic and bitter conflict, that proceeded apace with the emergence of independent Irish statehood.

Growing up in an Irish Midlands town and being taught Irish History at school, Jack Kiernan remembers being told by his teachers that "if anything of importance happened in Mullingar, it would have been recorded."

Bullet holes remnants in the walls of prominent local buildings seemed to give lie to these bland assertions, as did the recollections of older neighbours, alluding to "the shooting of unarmed prisoners during the Civil War."

What he only discovered, much later, was that events of, not just local but national significance had taken place in the town where he grew up. What’s more, they had been recorded, only to be buried deep within the archives – almost as if they had been deliberately covered up!

The evidence that he reveals here, demonstrates that open hostilities between pro- and anti-treaty forces were already in place throughout the country, prior to the events in Dublin. Furthermore, gun battles took place in the town of Mullingar during the month of April 1922, resulting in deaths. Evidence also suggests that British forces, though officially withdrawn, may have fired the first shots that that set Irish against Irish and brother against brother.

The events of the Irish Civil War (1922-1923) have cast a long shadow over Irish life. This book sheds important light on a dark chapter in Irish history; a contribution towards the debate that surely must accompany the centenaries of these events, which are now just around the corner.
