The Treasure Punt

Tenacity, an unbroken stallion of unbridled power, blacker than the midnight sky with white eyes wilder than a wildebeest's, and a mighty muscular torso more colossal than a Clydesdale, was caged in the hold below decks.

The Treasure Punt is a delightfully-written and illustrated book in which corporate storyteller and human resources strategist Peter Christie uses the anecdotal form to bring home some important lessons for those on both sides of the job market: recruiters and people looking to be recruited. Christie's central metaphor is that of a pirate Captain (Captain Black-bug), representing a leader of a company, who sails the seven seas on his ship (The Bountiful), looking for treasure. Along the way Black-bug encounters many adventures, each of which teaches him something about making the best of his crew, and experiences, to maximise his material gain. If you read The Treasure Punt as a recruiter, you will find some powerful tools for bringing the right talent on-board in your organisation, and if you are a candidate, for making yourself a desirable workplace treasure. The book is a rollicking good read that will have you chuckling into your coffee cup, making complicated scenarios that stalk business seem simple and approachable, and imparting a sense of can-do confidence and savoir-faire.

A captivating literary portrait of the writers who explore the city at night, and the people they met. “Cities, like cats, will reveal themselves at night,” wrote the poet Rupert Brooke. Before the age of electricity, the nighttime city was a very different place to the one we know today – home to the lost, the vagrant and the noctambulant. Matthew Beaumont recounts an alternative history of London by focusing on those of its denizens who surface on the streets when the sun’s down. If nightwalking is a matter of “going astray” in the streets of the metropolis after dark, then nightwalkers represent some of the most suggestive and revealing guides to the neglected and forgotten aspects of the city. In this brilliant work of literary investigation, Beaumont shines a light on the shadowy perambulations of poets, novelists and thinkers: Chaucer and Shakespeare; William Blake and his ecstatic peregrinations and the feverish ramblings of opium addict Thomas De Quincey; and, among the lamp-lit literary throng, the supreme nightwalker Charles Dickens. We discover how the nocturnal city has inspired some and served as a balm or narcotic to others. In each case, the city is revealed as a place divided between work and pleasure, the affluent and the indigent, where the entitled and the desperate jostle in the streets. With a foreword and afterword by Will Self, Nightwalking is a captivating literary portrait of the writers who explore the city at night and the people they meet.
