Adding to the fun: Lane Smith, bestselling creator of beloved hits like It''s a Book and The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales, has spectacularly illustrated this extraordinary collection with nearly one hundred pieces of appropriately absurd art. It''s a mischievous match made in heaven! "Ridiculous, nonsensical, peculiar, outrageous, possibly deranged--and utterly, totally, absolutely delicious. Read it! Immediately!" --Judith Viorst, bestselling author of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Providing analysis and interpretation on the construction of the Bermuda Form, this second edition also addresses the dispute resolution process and covers the legal and practical issues which arise in the international arbitration of large and complex disputes under it. The work has been thoroughly revised to take into account the major changes in the governing New York law since the first edition, as well as significant English case law such as AstraZeneca v ACE & XL. This case has had major implications for the interpretation of issues such as the recoverability of defence costs, assertion and proof of legal liability. The resulting trend towards brokers and insurers drafting endorsements intended to clarify intent, and the nature and efficacy of these endorsements, are also analysed in this edition. The implications for policyholders and insurers of the ACE Insurance Form 007 are also discussed at length. Providing valuable analysis of disputes involving the Bermuda Form, particularly concerning arbitrations, this work gives access to an otherwise closed arena and is an indispensible guide even for experienced practitioners in this field.

East from 'Frisco - on the Trail of America's Soul

release date: Aug 26, 2010
East from 'Frisco - on the Trail of America's Soul
This work is not ''just another travelog'' '' it is a light-hearted blend of observation, anecdote, humour and history. The book was inspired by a USA coast-to-coast expedition from San Francisco to Washington DC to raise funds for charity (Motor Neurone Disease), undertaken for much of the way in a 30-year-old open top ''classic'' car along the historic Route 66. Little escapes critique '' from cow-chip throwing to IndyCar racing; from poker running to the deeply ingrained religiosity of the American people. The story ranges from the sparkling waters of San Francisco Bay, via Amarillo in the Texas panhandle, to shipwreck in the pounding Atlantic surf off Cape Hatteras. The quirks and idiosyncrasies of people and places, and the tragedies and triumphs of American history, are all sympathetically portrayed through the pen of a visitor from Europe. The style is the author''s own '' although he likes to think it is inspired by the best of Bryson, RL Stevenson and JK Jerome. Enjoy!
