It shoots an awful lot of sacred cows, blows holes in a bunch of myths and does not shy away from laughing in the face of conventional wisdom. It is an argument for a new 'Gastronomics' - combining memoir, polemic and hard-nosed reportage.Each chapter will take apart a major issue in the food chain, in a logical progression. Sprinkled between these sections, will be more 'Dispatches from the front line of greed': why fat is where the flavour is; the joys of eating with your hands; the pleasures of bad food; why a taste for oysters is a mark of adulthood attained; how leftovers can be the route to true happiness; the need to embrace foods that make you stink; why the very best ingredients are the ones that carry with them the faint tang of death; the importance of pig in everything.The potential to include beautiful illustrations or even recipes is there, but at heart this will be a compulsory read for any foodie.

"A greedy man in a hungry world is a bold retort to the vast majority of food writing - and food media in general - which trips the consumer about how they shop and how they eat. It's a cold-eyed, realistic response to a very fast-changing world, in which there are a lot of hungry people competing for the contents of the global ladder. It shoots an awful lot of sacred cows, blows holes in a bunch of myths and does not shy away from laughing in the face of conventional wisdom. It is an argument for a new 'Gastronomics' - combining memoir, polemic and hard-nosed reportage. Each chapter will take apart a major issue in the food chain, in a logical progression.

'Hilarious, informative, enlightening, instructive ... It's the funniest book I've read all year' - Chris Evans You're About to Die. What Would Your Final Meal Be? This question has long troubled Jay Rayner. But why wait for death? Why not eat your 'last meal' now, when you can enjoy it? So, he had a simple plan: he would embark on a journey through his life in food in pursuit of the meal to end all meals. It's a quest that takes him from necking oysters on the Louisiana shoreline to forking away the finest French pastries in Tokyo, and from his earliest memories of snails in garlic butter, through multiple pig-based banquets, to the unforgettable final meal itself. This is the story of one hungry man, in eight courses. 'Witty, wise, and, obviously, delicious.' Guardian 'A raucous, joyous celebration of life.' Irish Times

Organizing for Sustainable Effectiveness highlights research and practice aimed at understanding how organizations and more inclusive systems of actors develop a continuous, unfaltering focus on sustainability. It will examine how they organize to achieve expanded purposes, the associated changes in purpose and governance, relationships among various stakeholders, boundaries between organizations and other elements of the environment in which they operate, organizational systems and processes, leadership, competencies and capabilities. Thus 'sustainability' is seen as entailing a continuous dynamic adaptive process in people, organizations and systems, striving to be as proactive as possible, moving 'upstream' in improving and developing organizational processes and issues.
