‘Short But Quite Useful’ Score: 4/5 Ukes are fun. They’re an instrument that’s hard to pick up without smiling. Inherently silly, they blend well with kazoos rather than flutes, shakers rather than drums. But ukuleles are still musical instruments, and the same music theory applies. This book tries to bring across just enough music theory to make a ukulele player dangerous. There’s chord structure, scales,…

‘Interesting And Useful Perspectives’ Score: 3/5 I’m not sure who recommended this book, or why. It’s not my usual kind of non-fiction book. I did still enjoy reading it though. As the world becomes more polarised, how do we cope with such polarisation when people are going to (sometimes forcefully) disagree with you? It’s difficult, and there’s no magic bullet. But there are some useful thoughts on…
